Some songs are meant for kids and some songs just sound like they are for kids but maybe aren’t. Earbuddy Brandon suggested that Mitchell and Amy should tackle unexpected and alternative children’s songs. Amy uses her easily available small expert to get the child’s take and well, Ru holds no punches.
While they come across as sweet innocent podcasters, Mitchell and Amy are carrying some bitter, sarcastic, snarky grudges that don’t seem to be dying anytime soon. In this magnificent example of how great the songs made out of bitterness, Amy cusses quite a bit and Mitchell admits how much he loves this theme.
The Earbuddies stepped up this week to share their stories of live bands that have seen and one Earbuddy’s story completely wrecks Amy’s composure for the rest of the show. Mitchell enjoys using the word “titular” and also joins in on destroying any composure that Amy even attempts to put together. Beards are woven together and mustaches are entangled.
This episode starts with Mitchell confusing his mom and Amy being caught off guard by a “clap” reference. The catchiest of songs are presented and now it is up to the Earbuddies to decide which songs they are going to have stuck in their heads all week. And if you really want to do a massive favor, head over to The Memphis Flyer and vote for Earbuds and Earworms Podcast For Best of Memphis.
This week, in celebration of some popular movie that is out right now that a couple to a few folks like, Mitchell and Amy discuss caped crusaders in the literal and metaphorical sense. Amy learns that she now has to start a podcast feud with the podcast “Who Charted?”. Also, did Bruce Wayne really marry a porsche? A bit of Earbuddy feedback is received!
Mitchell and Amy are welcoming the robot overlords in an attempt to save their own skins in the first wave of attacks. Amy misnames Boston Dynamics quite a few times but she doesn’t feel bad because they keep kicking robots. Mitchell tries to keep the whole thing grounded in reality but Amy is insisting she can be a better robot mechanic than another robot. The first ever text comes in to the voicemail line!
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.
Sometimes, a good look at the big picture can remind us that the small details can be handled. So this week, Amy and Jason decide to star gaze and turn the radio up while they lay on the top of their old Astro van in a field in the country. There is lots of nerding out about astronauts who can sing from within tin cans!
