Episode 654: The Nerds Culinary Universe

7/11/2024
WTF is happening here? you may be thinking. We would also like to know. We're drooling and dry swallowing over the taste of sleep-away camp as we devour all the varieties of anthropomorphic pebbles we could find all while discussing Meryl Streep's filmography. We eat these bump balls with abandon and gusto which is probably why the AI transcript generator declared "Their enthusiasm for the candy was evident throughout the conversation."

Episode 652: Bran

6/27/2024
Today Matthew channels his inner NPR persona and we get prissy about cereal.
