MBMBaM 520: Genuine Clean Fauciballs
Look, the title’s challenging, okay? We get it. It’s probably not what you’re thinking it’s about, because we’re talking about athletic balls. Maybe that is what you were thinking about? Are we the problem? Yeah, actually, that sounds about right.

MBMBaM 519: The Grandma Tesseract

In today’s episode, we inexplicably relitigate the film Titanic, which is a million years old, and come up with a way cooler ending where the ship doesn’t break and the cool guy gets the treasure and everyone gets married. (Feat. Special Guestpert, Dr. James Bufeè!)

Feed Drop: Minority Korner
Hey everyone! We don’t have a new MBMBaM for you today — instead, we’re doing a feed drop of Minority Korner. It’s a fantastic show on the Maximum Fun network that’s all about discussing culture and news through an intersectional lens. We’re so appreciative that James allowed us to cross-post the latest episode from last Friday on our feed.
This past weekend, we all witnessed a horrific escalation of police violence against protestors and Black folks across the country. We encourage everyone to not only seek out and support Black creators, artists and voices, but to find ways to support folks on the ground, either through bail funds or by providing direct support to frontline protestors.

MBMBaM 512: The Jabberjaw Affair

MBMBaM 510: Killer Car Wash
Perhaps it’s the months of seclusion that has given us this macabre fascination, but in today’s episode, we debate, at length, the lethal capabilities of an automated car wash. Our conclusion: It’s probably not a great idea to walk into one of these things. (Feat. Special Guestpert: MC Bat Commander!)

MBMBaM 508: Face 2 Face: The Pepsi Proposal
Hey, this is a weird one! For one thing, it’s a live show, which is a strange thing to listen to. For another thing, it’s a selection of bits from two different performances aboard the JoCo Cruise, so it’s a little patchwork-y and disjointed. We’ll be back with a regular ep next week!
|Apr 27, 2020|
MBMBaM 507: Dirtiest Dancing: Havana Nights

FEED DROP - The Besties Play Animal Crossing: New Horizons!
This isn't an episode of MBMBaM, but hey! Every living human being on Earth is talking about this game, so we decided to toss our Besties discussion here on the MBMBaM feed! (Don't fret -- this isn't taking the place of a MBMBaM; it's back Monday!)

We’re currently sailing the high seas, searching for adventure on that big blue horizon. So, while we do that, here’s a live show we recently did in Cincinnati. (Griffin's doing fine, by the way. You'll understand why you might want that update a few minutes into the episode.)

MBMBaM 500: Spaghettageddon Two: 2 Saucy, 2 Carbious
So, before setting any expectations based on the title of the episode, know this: Ten years later, our bodies respond to spaghetti-loading SUPER differently.
We all recorded this one together, and mostly spent it talking to our various family members, but also there are two impromptu musical numbers and a fierce competition of athletic prowess, so, yeah. Thank you all so much for sharing this past decade with us. You’ve changed our lives irrevocably, and there’s no way we’ll be able to repay that kindness in our lifetimes, so instead, we just ate a bunch of pasta and recorded it for you.

Two, in said show, Justin finally crossed the streams of his two wildly popular segments. Three, capitalism got the shot in the arm it’s needed for some time now. You’re welcome, everyone!

This live show, from our recent tour stop in Pittsburgh, will probably go down in history as “the one where we unknowingly distributed 100 KFC Doughnut Chicken Sandwiches to our audience, who, for some reason did not instantly turn against us.” We like to think of it … well, we don’t like to think of it.

We bumped the Grand Ole Opry from the Ryman lineup to present our own twisted, skewed comedy to the fine folks of Nashville, Tennessee.
