This week, Mike and Ann are joined by LRB’s favorite accordion enthusiast and Appalachian clogger Bob Stein. After Mike and Bob compare their summers (Bob’s was better), we hold the ceremonial unboxing of a Wagon Full of Loot. Then, we dive into the recap of last week’s TBTL, which may or may not have been swass, depending on which definition you want to use. We come up with a new, more useful hurricane-naming system, introduce a new segment called, “Old Man Stein Yells at Clouds”, and elaborate on the perils of telling someone they look like Bobby Hill. Mike knows the real reason we hit the snooze button on World War III, and Ann is forced to use the term “fecal material” far too many times. Plus, Bob floats an Up with People conspiracy theory for the ages.
