Erin and Tyler fly solo on this one, together. With no guest in sight, can your intrepid hosts cobble together a set of compelling Rabbit Holes? Yes, yes they can. Starting with an independent scotch whisky bottler, Erin gets traditional with vinegar and cooperages, and Tyler gets heavy with measures and means.
Lover of manatees and matinees (the second is an assumption), Anneliese Toft sat down with us to review the classic 2003 film Lost Treasure. Just kidding, none of us cared about that, but we did use it as a starting point to learn about Bratz, the movie AND doll, the man who converted Jane Roe, and the man who dreamed of cantilevered women.
The Bears' biggest Cubs fan, Scott Goldstein, took time from behind home plate to talk with us about the Romans' goddess of love. From there, we learned of the disappointing facts of Gertrude Stein, a famous Roman satire involving incontinence, and garbage people around the world.
Fresh-faced Grant Gigot goins us to talk about English informants small and Super. From there we try to make up new rhyming slangs, a big deal train robbery, and a program that definitely did not give your hosts new names and a cover as podcast hosts. Definitely did not.
An objectively fit Alex Trepka joined us to talk about a much historied and very proud Indiana glee club. From there, we learned of pre-diabetic concerns, cartoon cat music, and a tightly controlled vision of the urban tomorrow.
The strikingly mannered Sam Martin sits down with us to discuss Mobile, AL's number one AM Christian talk radio station. From there we discuss the genres of news, Africatown to the artic, and that classic palindrome: a band, a man, Alice Cooper.
The bayou's baby boy TC Matherne saunters into our studio to discuss a rousing tale of brooding seamanship. From there we spend about 2 bells worth of time discussing life on the Duldrums, addiction and what 2 bells means.
The burly and beatific Ben Harpe comes to our table to discuss a forgotten artist from a distant age. From there we discuss medieval death, the efficacy of pay what you can, and a... dare one say... mesmerizing religious leader.
Josiah Jenkins, actual amateur Wikipedia editor, clicked in to talk with us about our favorite starting point, a Dutch erotic film. From there we learn about 1974 animal deaths, nudist camps and the policies that, er... "pop up", and the randomest stub a boy can find.

The divine Bente Engelstoft communes with us on the mysteries of a Lithuanian earth goddess. From that brief brush with the celestial, Tyler experiences a crisis of faith and breaks format, Bente learns of a teenaged world-ruler, and Erin parts the veil on vestal virgins.
Jack of all trades, master of pun Austin Campion pops in to kick around the starting link of a football manager (soccer manager, for those Americans who make up 95% of our audience). The conversation builds from there to touch the White Revolution of Iran, the baloneyness of Humours, and Chicago's favorite sport, indoor soccer!
Silk-voiced Adam Bindert helps us discombobulate from a small independent film producer to such extremes of human diversions as bull riding, Andy Warhol, and anonymous messaging services.
Damian "Even Keel" Anaya slips in to talk furtively with us about classic crook Joe Erich. From there we learn about Erin's family past in New York City, tragic airplane accidents and when you can stop worrying, and the best bamboozles you can possibly pull.
The best laugher in all of Hollywood, Rob Grabowski of The Remake podcast sat at our table and discussed much of a 90s deep house record label and tangents such as legions and Looney Tunes, apparel and auto racing, and star kids and Star Booty.
Mel and Mark return! Only actually they're driving across country AS WE SPEAK. But we managed to get them into the house to record to a nice 2 parter that finishes up in this second part. Mark teaches us about natural rights, the humanity it brings to persons, and how he will not talk about how that pertains to fetuses AT ALL. And Erin helps us all relax in a nice medicinal hot spring, replete with casual summer komonos for all.
