The man closest to our hearts (and refrigerator) Tim Dunn joined us to be inspired by the most self-indulgent birthday commemoration possible. From there we learned about not-so-mythic birds, Williamsburg NYC, and woof, skinheads.
Hyper organized Sarah Shockey blew into our lives and blew away our hearts as we talked about a little asteroid, its noble namesake, and his questionable cleverness. From there we learned about the famous actors of Canadian kids shows, the beginnings of the beginnings, and the truly cinematic story of the man who found Pluto.
Rabbit Hole Director of Marketing Adam Marier stopped by to chat with us about a kooky little mansion in Iowa. From there we learned about mining techniques, the twee-est UFO group in history, and everything about chiropractic. Sorry Adam. Chiropractic.
The wacky and wonderful Mary Tilden came on the show to talk about ancient Egypt, and to mark the very first instance of Total Twin Rabbit Holes. We did some word association and a little magical thinking, and had a very great time!
Nate "Widget Neapolitan" Dicken joined us to josh around all over the place! From a macroeconomic concept, we learned about the world's greatest game, the world's secret groups that control it, and the world's most "shock"-ing photo. (I feel bad about that pun.)
John Sabine went Han Solo with us to talk about new hot ticket Alden Ehrenreich. From there we learned about the tallest humans, old English chain stores, and the art of the pool hustle.
The bright-eyed Jessie Cadle jumped into a Spanish car company with us to see where it would go. It went to Bernie Madoff, torch men, and Earnest Hemingway's family, and further beyond. Plus, the show became interactive! Send us your Bacon answers!
Erin and Tyler take a twosy on this one and go without a guest! From a Somalian politician, Erin delves into the adorable pufferfish, and Tyler does an echo on something Erin said last week.
Dulcet Dan Hodos popped in to talk with us about the replenishment oiler that could, the USS Saugatuck. From there we learned about guano policy, South Korea (which you really should visit), and downer cows, which really do live up to their name.
Friend to all (including talent agents) Robin Hellman joined us to talk about an Akira Kurosawa film. From there we learned about people in Japan who are famous for being famous, rope martial arts, and finally put a longstanding Rabbit Hole debate to bed about how awful a film maker was.
Sassy broad Lexi Alioto joined us to talk about another strongfemale from another strong culture. From the heart of Mesoamerica,we made some disgusting mouth noises (sorry!), journeyed to Oxford,and learned about the greatest god of all the world, Prince Philip,Duke of Edinburgh.
Kurt Vonnegutian Shelby Plummer sat down with us to discuss a totally rock and roll and white magazine. From there we learned about emoji, fanzines, and MISSY F-ING ELLIOTT.
The man so nice we recorded twice! Brendan Dowling sat down with us to discuss the small berg of Winchester, Illinois. Tyler forgot to hit the record button, so then we did it all over again. In our second conversation with Brendan, we learned about courtly Italian side-pieces, a great man who met a rough end, and Tyler's dad's home town.
Anthropomorphized emotion of Delight Nicole Carter popped into our 'cast to talk about a small country's small year at the Olympics. From there we discussed Haitian history, the Sports Illustrated Cover Jinx, and lists of life expectancies and wealth expectancies and what we didn't expect about all of it.
Best-named Rosie Moan turned our focus to a distant star in a distant sky. From there we learned about Erin's favorite stellar object, Rosie's ability to handle infinity, and Tyler's love of the movie Evolution. Also, the big question: do January Jones's friends call her January, or does she have a nickname?
