What’s this podcast all about? Well everything important. And nothing in particular. In between all that, we solve world problems. Micromanage each other’s personal lives. Tell stories. Riff on social and cultural happenings. Predict the future. Mock ignorance wherever we find it. And generally rant, rave and question the things you’re not supposed to talk about in “polite circles” – especially politics, sex, and religion. After seven years of having coffee and great conversations every Friday morning, we thought you might enjoy our chats as much as we did, so we decided to launch this podcast! Join us for an always authentic, hopefully enlightening and entertaining conversation.

Sex Education is alive and well in Norway as young kids explicitly learn the ins and outs. Back home on the presidential campaign, Huckabee’s past hucksterism comes back to haunt him. Followed by a discussion of the republicans branding of the poor, and the loss of rainbows. Plus, Carl and Mike get a visit, Glenn Beck has a death wish, and plans are made for a Rocky Mountain High. Leave your lack of multicultural awareness at the door, it’s time for Carl and Mike!

Carl and Mike tackle five really stupid questions. Join in on the fun as they attempt to answer these doozies...

1) If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a song about him?

2) Why do people point to their wrist when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

3) Why do they sterilize needles for lethal injections?

4) How come you press harder on a remote control when you know the battery is dead?

5) Why do feet smell and noses run?

BONUS Question: If electricity comes from electrons, does morality come from morons?
