This week, a coincidental portmanteau turns what was supposed to be a quick opening bit for a clip show into a full blown episode! Their early morning recording finds the boys reinventing fast food, scolding Mel Gibson, questioning cinematic alien invasion tactics, towing/toeing water, choosing The Good Place over Pushing Daisies, and imagining some pretty gnarly vape flavors.
Talking Points coming soon!
This week the boys call into question why on Earth everyone's idiot parents allowed them to watch a movie that's ALL about sending the wrong message when they watch 1978's terrible mistake: Grease.
(Movie begins at 10:03)

That makes two movies in a row that stink out loud.
Sometimes in this big, busy world of ours, you just need to take a minute to stop and smell the flowers. To appreciate the little things in life that make you happy... Because we're all powder kegs with a propensity for lighting matches...
This week, while attempting to take notice of the small pleasures, the Worst Adults manage to overhaul customer service at a major airline, portion out dogs for charity, salute William Shakespeare, elect Harvey Dent, and retcon David Beckham! So... mission accomplished?
In 1997, an IBM computer defeated humanity's best at the game of Chess. The computer was accused of cheating and challenged to a rematch... The computer said no and retired a champ. As a result, an entire generation turned its back on board games... But we're Millennials! We crave distraction. So let's peruse the veritable smorgasbord of board games we have access to!
This week the Worst Adults discuss their favorite table top entertainments, condemn the world's most popular game, focus their spite, expose Hitler, learn some dark truths about Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor (and why his neighbor is so shy), and still somehow manage to spend half the episode talking about Monopoly!
Get your elbows off the table! This week the boys are discussing manners and social faux pas and whether or not anyone should care! They’ll dive through complicated social blunders such as interrupting, droning on, mouth sounds, and Facebooking when you should be living life!

Every now and again The Worst Adults make a poor choice in episode themes... And that's usually fine. But toss jet lag into the mix and you have a recipe for disaster. Or hilarity. We'll let you decide which it is.
This week the boys attempt to become one person, discuss Adam's fascinating use of his sky privileges, improve air travel and rice, protect their backsides, and cope with the ramifications of Matthew's Hail Mary pass of a show closer!
With Spider-Man: Homecoming right around the corner, The Worst Adults figured it was time to revisit the darkest entry in Spider-Man's cinematic past, the third entry in Sam Raimi's Sony series... And it does not disappoint. Which is to say it is very disappointing. If that makes sense.
(Movie begins at 11:26.)
The Worst Adults are no strangers to technology. They were raised in the transitionary period between analog and digital, and they have feelings about it. This week they discuss their generation's unique position, pit early adoption against waiting for second generation tech, put digital celebs on carousels, add Starbucks to a beloved Ghibli property, discuss a certain obscene golden disc that is currently hurtling through space, and tell you how to raise your kids!
Well folks, it's happened again. We prepped for a proper episode about something real, but then let one random comment derail us... So here's hoping you dig the idea of rebooting Harry Potter in America and subsequently who would play who! Along the way we crush it in the casting department, sell out a beloved franchise to some big companies, do some pretty weak impressions, and pat ourselves on the back quite a bit... all because of a long lost moped.
(Side note: This does mean you have a little more time to get us your thoughts on modern technology for next week's episode!)
The boys are back in the mail truck this week... and stuck in LA traffic! So to kill time, they solicit questions from their listeners. In this hour they talk about influential teachers, recap Adam's trip to Pandora, make a playlist for some Aliens, discuss how good a Tom Bombadil movie would be, design a Fast and the Furious video game, pick their super powers, will themselves illiterate, and extol the merits of storytelling and D&D!
