On this week’s episode, Amy and Jason groove to the rhythm within us all. There is a special announcement from a celebrity warning us that the Rhythm is gonna get us if we aren't careful. They discuss Friends and the length of songs. Amy uses Jason as a human drum during the show.
Jason and Amy delve into their childishness to romp around in the Mesozoic Era. Jason had been worried there wouldn’t be many songs about dinos but turns out, the Earbuddies helped the podcasters realize how many there are (almost as many as species of dinosaurs)! Get out your shovels, brushes, and khakis to excavate dinosaurs in music.
This is the episode where Jason and Amy explore musical mothers. They are also joined by their friend and contributing Earbuddy, Jan, who had also explored the recent Wiseacre Brewery’s Golgi Apparatus. Hold on, Bet will make us cry on this one so get your mom, hold her tight, and sway to the musical musings on moms.
Jason and Amy walk through the park with songs that are sometimes about parks and sometimes about walking...occasionally one about walking in the park. The Earbuddies bring it far more than either of the podcasters could have imagined and somehow Monticello comes up and everyone agrees Jefferson was a terrible human.
Jason and Amy strap on their bibs and dig into the delicious songs about food that they found at this really fancy restaurant. The Earbuddies serve up sides of chicken ice cream topped with Mayonaise that is sure to please, so set the table and get the napkins. Earbuddy Chris provides a challenge at the end so listen really hard to see how he is messing with us.
Jason is back from Florida and tells about his adventure meeting his sister. This week’s theme brings a menagerie of songs about animals, which is absolutely gleeful. Listener Feedback also holds some delights and a fantastic pair of stories from Earbuddy Bet. Cuddle up next to your favorite critter, turn up the volume, and enjoy this fuzzy episode.
Jason is off meeting his sister for the first time, so Amy brings Mike Frizzell of Little Red Bandwagon to the show where they go “inside to the power of inside” and recreate TBTL’s “Defend Yourself: IPod edition.” Mike and Amy both bring songs that may not be the most popular but do have sentimental stories behind them.
Jason and Amy put on their spiky vests and board the subway train to the pod-workplace to discuss commuting and getting to work. There are more overt signs of rule bending on this episode but they still seem to make each song about commuting. Jason makes his way to a plane to meet a sister and Amy explains some plans for next week’s episode. Make sure you queue this one up for that treacherous road to work.
The Best Part of Waking Up is a Podcast in Your Cup
Jason and Amy meander in sluggishly before getting pepped up on songs about coffee.
Jason saw some animals and Amy missed a question on a quiz which she finds quite bothersome. In the feedback segment, a voicemail confuses Amy.
