Having exhausted every good idea over the course of the first 99 episodes (and the 27-ish commentary episodes, the Star Wars miniseries, the Fast and the Furious miniseries, the pilot for their next venture, and some other random sidesteps), the boys are left with only the show itself to talk about. So enjoy this very special, very narcissistic, totally not requested Behind the Music-style episode.

As always, we'd like to thank Laura Hammond of the webcomic XP for our show's art, Bensound.com for our outro music, everyone who contributed to this week's (or any week's!) episode, and you the listener for sticking with us! If you like what you hear, there's a whole back catalogue over on the site! Follow us for updates on our next grand adventure, Quantum Leap of Faith!

See you soon!

We're all getting older, but the boys are at that stage where they're starting to notice it. And they don't like it. This week they implant magnets in their hands, correct their terrible posture, disguise themselves to escape youths, allow themselves feel (finally), and explain away their inability to be up to date on hip lingo... all in an attempt to stave off the inevitable.

Talking Points:

  • New America is at war! (00:00)
  • Tennis balls and internets! (06:56)
  • Brain slugs! (10:10)
  • Hand upgrades! (13:52)

  • Outdated lingo! (38:39)
  • You're so fragile! (43:04)
  • New diet! (55:15)
  • Imposter signal! (59:00)

No one has ever praised the boys for their interior design choices. And rightly so. So it should come as no surprise that their attempts to improve their living spaces in this hour lead to battling mutants, showering with houseplants, ruining a dorm, and rebooting Home Improvement. Bob Vila would be so proud.

Talking Points:

  • A Taylor Family reunion! (00:00)
  • Wood 2: Hyperwood! (05:56)
  • Lose a wall, gain a speakeasy! (14:17)

  • Water woes! (37:30)
  • Shock therapy! (46:43)
  • Light up your life! (48:42)
  • Adam's bed sheet soap box! (56:58)
