It’s the last in-studio episode with Big Jim Willig and Byron Beck. It is what you think it is. Of COURSE it is.

Shows with Courtenay Hameister always seemed to be the ones that ran the full gamut of topics, emotions, and depths. Adding Leia Weathington to that mix only enhanced this fact. And today’s show, the final regular show with both of them, does nothing to change this. Among the topics discussed: Sexual surrogates, Triscuit Heretics, “Beef” as an adjective, Olfactory injustice, the unneccessary shame we ladle onto our own psyche for the silliest of reasons, the necessary shame ladled onto John Travolta’s sharpie’d head for making that music video with Olivia Newton John, the cruel jokes our bodies can play on us via our orifices, and the sense memories associated with the holidays, the ones that make the happy, innocent children inside all of us (even Cort) smile in wonder at what this season means to each of us.

It’s the last regular episode with David Walker. That means neuroses, and insecurities, and discomfort, and comedy in all the mean, scary places your mind doesn’t like to go, and advice from a guy whose gone into those places and survived somehow. That means Dr. No-Love, threatening to burst from under the surface like the Phoenix Force waiting under the water at the end of X2. Does the sky get set on fire with a righteous fury? Or does David learn to write himself a new story? Topics include – Dental slacking, Podcast admissions, Regret at Trek in the Dark, regret at screwing up Ryan’s last regular episode, and of course – one final crazy-ex-girlfriend story to send you wobbling into an unsure future. David had one last therapy session, and he stretched it into 80 minutes of show for you. So listen.

Ryan Fleming has every reason to be upset with Bobby on today’s show: He forgot to eat, drank too much coffee, and succumbed to the sort of scatterbrained silliness that he apparently thinks is a side-effect of at least three major diseases he has almost zero working knowledge of. But it’s gonna take more than a woozy, imbecilic co-host to wreck his day, because he’s had one hell of a weekend, one that will change his life forever. Bobby didn’t just disappoint Ryan today, either – no, he made Cort’s life a little worse today too. 1) He remembered Cort’s birthday, and 2) He gave Cort the one gift guaranteed to ruin what life he has left. Other topics include: Alternative methods of car repair. Things you’re not supposed to do to Superman if you value your life. The maturation of video game storytelling, and how 2012 marked a huge jump forward on that front. Hobbit fatigue. A bunch of other stuff. Nothing like making sure the first show back from a big write-up in the paper is a disjointed, ridiculous mess.
