We're doing something a little different this week! We're joined by the lead singer of Okilly Dokilly, the world's only "Nedal" band. Yep, a subgenre of metal music themed around Ned Flanders.

It’s the second and final week of the Maximum Fun Pledge Drive, and we’re ever-closer to our self-decreed goal of 10,000 new members. Actually, we don’t know how close we are, but if we hit it, we’ll throw a party. And if we throw a party, it’ll be with the help of our guest, events planner Beth Helmstetter! Also, in preparation for the release of Tim Burton’s “Dumbo,” Paula and Adam review a related classic, Brian De Palma’s “Scarface!” We promise this makes sense. A little. Also, meet the first winner of our Hotel Soap Contest, and we find a whole class full of Nobodies listening to Paula Poundstone... in Sweden!

The Greatest Generation DS9 Ep 254: Uncle Magic (DS9 S4E5)

| 0 comments

When a lover from Dax’s past visits Deep Space Nine, the rest of the crew expects some tension between them. But after their scientific collaboration results in personal fireworks, they’ll have to decide if imperiling their futures as Trill symbiotes is worth the risk. What is average, really? How do you turn crying into kissing? What would “Season 1 Bashir” do? It’s the episode that stretches the tension taffy!

It’s the last week of #MaxFunDrive 2019!

Our goal is 2,000 new and upgrading supporters. If we hit the goal, we’re going to build a Millenium Falcon lego set and drop it off something, and we’re going to make a short documentary about the whole thing! Become a supporter now to get instant access to our bonus content and help us achieve our goal.
