S02 E20: Aloha

Howdy. To be honest, faithful listeners, while we realize you all have lives beyond this podcast, it's usually a bit, well, disconcerting when a week's episode doesn't seem to garner much interest. We try, most often, to make our scatter-shot musings palatable to others, after all.

But this week's episode...

Well, look, we get it. If your not a fan of LOST, you won't find 45+ minutes of discussion about the series finale all that entertaining. Heck, maybe even if you are a fan. But of course we had to do it, for the record. So no hard feelings, pals. And next week... umm, an hour-long tribute to pizza! (Everyone likes pizza, right?) And for all you die-hard LOSTies: Enjoy!

S02 E18: White Mothers' Day

Frankly, I would think an episode of Awkward Silences that uses TWO images of Betty White in its post needn't a text description: you should have already developed a rug burn on your pointer finger from clicking the link in such a hurry to sample the Mothers' Day-sized awesomeness within. I may be biased, mind you. Enjoy!
