Grosse Pointe Ten Sydney McIlroy joins Meredith and Bobby to listen back to the time Dr. Jerkington III—a proud alum of Judgement Tech—called Jen Andrews’ beloved Mr. Knightly “fat.” (He may have been right; he was still a jerk.) We also talk about our own pets, and piece together memories formed between stiff drinks at the St. Paul live show. Speaking of stiff, we’re confident you’ll like this episode at least as much as Eddie likes a good bull penis.
Greetings Friendos, we're interrupting your regularly scheduled programming for two special pieces of LRB news.
1. We've added some items to our store! Head on over to www.tenseventen.com/store or click the "Shop" button in the menu to view are new shirts, sweatshirts, totes and mugs featuring a special design crowdsourced by the Tens of listeners.
2. Save the date - August 18th 2017, we're going to have our very own LRB summer picnic here in Seattle. We've already reserved a covered spot and some tables at Woodland park so mark your calendars, more details will be headed your way soon!
Psst! Get your lab coats and safety goggles, and don’t let Mike know where you’re going, because Meredith and Ann are stepping into the LRB lab to bring you a clip show all about TBTL and science. First, we talk about how we became scientists, what exactly we do for our jobs (because let’s face it, it’s kind of complicated and everybody’s too scared to ask), and what kind of challenges we face as women in science. Then we delve into some clips of our TBTL friendos dipping their toes into the world of studies, sample sizes, and experimental design. Jen and Luke can’t believe the things Canadians want to study, but we think they’re kinda missing the point. A crazy British scientist says we don’t need to bathe; Ann thinks you should never maintain the same hygiene level as The Mummy. Luke and Andrew are at odds over the restorative power of a nature walk. And a man with an unfortunate medical condition leads Meredith to ponder “all the things we do to allow men with no boners to have boners.”
Bobby, Meredith and Ann are ready to check you in for your pod-stay here at the reasonably appointed Hotel Walsh. Inexplicably in the heart of the Scottsdale Stag District, amenities include complimentary 24-hour DJ service, bespoke Bluetooth Zune docks in every room, and ample alleyways for abandoning undonatable but semi-functional refuse. Our gift shop features an extensive collection of stuff you wish you owned in the ‘90s, and our on-site Vietnamese soup shop includes on-call acquaintances always ready to take your confession.
