A fake turtle neck? A waistband with a flap? A gossip column? What exactly is a "dickens?" It probably has to do with Charles, right?

EpiDose 215- EAT ME FIRST
Thu, Jun 09 2016
Do not listen to this while eating. Seriously. It's all about the process we would undertake in order to determine who we'd eat first in an extreme survival situation. But Captain parameters wants to know: are we alone? Do we have others to care for? Is there a Sasquatch we can clean and eat? Benji is marbled like a fine rib-eye. Max would be more gamey than delicious and Hollywood smells like a slightly rancid fruit cup. Remember

Thu, Jun 02 2016

EpiDose 213- SCHRODINGERS BJ
Thu, May 26 2016
It's a "would you rather" EpiDose courtesy of someone who doesn't get a t-shirt because they didn't put their name on the topic (Whoops). It starts with the choice between getting a hard poke in the eye or a swift kick to the crotch. But don't worry - we go all sorts of places with it.

Thu, Feb 25 2016
Something special in honor of our 200th EpiDose...amazing, right? Our good friend, John Schorling, felt like facilitating a deep and meaningful conversation about race. Too bad this is Ignorant and Uninformed. Benji is self-shaming. Hollywood goes all metal. Max doesn't want your gentile-guilt. And Jesus is a baltimore cop. Huh?

EpiDose 199- TEASING STRIPPERS
Thu, Feb 18 2016
Can one ogle and respect at the same time? Would you rather go to a strip club and get a dance knowing it won't end in sex or stay at home and get an amateur dance from your partner that definitely will? Do you even like getting strip teases? What about teasing strippers? Tawdry Hipburn wants to know. Hollywood is an apple thief. Benji is all about the hustling. And Max's inner stripper is a vixen. Remember (There's a couple second technical glitch at the 8:45 mark. Conveniently when Max and Benji are talking about Hollywood's wife...Just sayin')

EpiDose 198- STAR WARS THE FORCE AWAKENS AGAIN TOO
Thu, Feb 11 2016
Put away your targeting computers and drop your blast shields - this week it's all about Star Wars. Benji is out greasin' them wheels but the always insightful, Jay Seevers, is sitting in. Hollywood is a ring-theory-obsessed-fanboy. And all Max wants is Lando, space aids, and some originality. Remember...

EpiDose 197- AVOID RESPONSIBILITY
Thu, Feb 04 2016
How do you slack off? Are you like Hollywood and pretend to do something? Do you procrastinate like Benji? Or do you just say no like Max? Is wearing headphones or looking at your phone a way to avoid social responsibility? This week it's a half an hour chat about stuff like this thanks to someone who wasn't responsible enough to put their name on their topic. Remember

EpiDose 196- SPORKS
Thu, Jan 28 2016
Remember two days ago when you sat down to a meal and thought, "Hmmm...this would really be better with a foon." No? But it's the shark of cutlery. Not like that other hybrid, that's just an example of putting two perfectly good things together and making a sub-par third. Benji called in sick. But lucky for us - Jay Seevers happened to be in town. Too bad he outed us on our t-shirt policy. Hollywood is all about bear claws and Max takes it way too deep. Remember

EpiDose 195- TIME WTF
Thu, Jan 21 2016
Erica Aren doesn't think time makes sense or that anyone can explain it. And that's because it doesn't and they can't. At least not after listening to Hollywood's theories and interplanetary census concerns. Benji has seen some Star Trek and Max has read some books. Remember

EpiDose 194- EATEN ALIVE
Thu, Jan 14 2016
Tiger? Octopus? Horse? If you had to be eaten alive by an animal, which would you choose to chow down on you? Meredith Murphy wants to know. Is it better to go in two bites or a thousand? Are we on land or in the water? Remember (Don't mind the technical blip around the 20 min mark. It's just a second or two.)

EpiDose 193- ANIMALS ARE HARD
Thu, Jan 07 2016
Audrey Philips (aka Tawdry Hipburn) wants us to name an animal for each letter of the alphabet. So Hollywood talks smack with Keanu Reeves on his chest. Max gets stumped by E. And Benji is outstanding at drinking out of cups. Remember

EpiDose 192- GOOD SOUP BAD SEX
Thu, Dec 31 2015
Happy New Years! Making y'all think and laugh is something we really enjoying doing, so from the bottom of our shallow and empty hearts, thank you. It's 2016! Would you rather have good soup or bad sex? That's what Chandra Kleinhans wants to know. But it's not that simple - How long has it been? Are you starving? Is it the first time with a new lover? Is there a bread bowl!? Benji says there's always time for soup. Hollywood dreams of Iceland. And it's all (fifty) shades of gray with Max. Remember

EpiDose 191- TECHNO ADVANCEMENT
Thu, Dec 24 2015
Jay Seevers has a question about technology - is the good worth the bad? We don't know. We're too busy singing songs... Hollywood is scared of video games. Max doesn't know how to use the internet. And Benji is the Candyman. Remember

EpiDose 190- POWER ON SEXBOT
Thu, Dec 17 2015
In honor of the new Star Wars move - how do you feel about sex robots? Long time fan, photographer, and sexpot Tawdry Hipburn really wants to know. Hollywood is worried about the human seed bank conspiracy. Benji wants a perpetually disappointed wife. And Max doesn't want to get elecrtocuted in the shower. Remember

EpiDose 189- ALCOHOL AND WEED
Wed, Dec 09 2015
If alcohol were illegal and marijuana wasn't, how would things be different? What would happen to bars? What about frat parties? What would the commercials be like? That's what Tim Mahon wants to know. Max has never seen Police Academy. Benji loves Christmas. And Hollywood is a liberal radical terrorist. Remember

EpiDose 188- CATCHPHRASE FOR TREES
Thu, Dec 03 2015
We aren't smoking 'em but we are talking about 'em, sort of. Cousin Brian wants to know about the aesthetic value of trees. But we're more interested in if Steve Urkel killed the catchphrase. Max actually says something funny. Hollywood is all hopped up on Mountain Dew. And 14 year old Benji wasn't picky. Remember

EpiDose 187- DRUGS IN DARK PLACES
Thu, Nov 26 2015
This one is for Winston...... How do you tap in euphoria when you need it? How do you turn all your bad feelings into good feelings? Does Back to the Future 3 count as a western? Amy O. wants to know. At least about two of those things. Benji is throwing more than Young Guns references in the studio. Max is lengthening the spectrum. And Hollywood is talking about peyote. Remember

EpiDose 186- CITIZEN FAMILY WORK
Thu, Nov 19 2015
How do you define family? Does citizenship extend to the human race or just your country? Where do you find meaning in life? It's back to back topics from Jay Seevers who wants to know if it's more important to be a good worker, citizen, or family member. Benji is hard nosed and hates rules. Max mediates. And Hollywood is full of empty threats. Remember

EpiDose 185- SHAKESPEARE IS HIGH
Thu, Nov 12 2015
Do drugs make people creative or crazy? Or do crazy and creative people find drugs? How many pots did Shakespeare smoke? That's what loyal listener and good friend, Jay Seevers, wants to know. Hollywood hates audiences. Benji hates the Simpsons. And Max makes the dorkiest reference possible. Remember

EpiDose 184- BOXERS OR BRIEFS
Thu, Nov 05 2015
Are you a boxers or briefs kinda guy? A granny panties or thong kinda gal? Or, do you prefer to let it all hang out commando style? For some reason Rachel Zukrow wants to know. Benji's a trend setter, Jesus gives Max support, and Hollywood is on team Jockey. Remember

EpiDose 183- ILLUSIONS OF FREE WILL
Thu, Oct 29 2015
Does nurture matter? Are we slaves to nature? Is this even the topic? Who knows? There were too many words and semi colons. Thanks, Justin Mettry. But it's cool. We have The Perfect Spiral's own Joel Water-catchment here to help us out. Remember

EpiDose 182- SURF NINJAS AND THE MOVIE EXPERIENCE
Thu, Oct 22 2015
Rambo? Jurassic Park? Return of the Jedi? The Holiday? Which movie made the biggest impact on you? Kevin Alan wants to know...we think? The Lego Movie made Benji feel like a kid again. Max got chills from seeing the Star Wars preview on the big screen. The Lord of The Rings made Hollywood out and proud. Remember

EpiDose 181- PORN IN PRODUCTION
Thu, Oct 15 2015
9 angry inches? Knuckle deep? My Fair Lady-Boy? The Lion Came? Crammer vs Crammer? If you were suddenly a porn producer, what would you call your films? Batman and Rubbin? This is what good friend of the show, Tawdry Hip-burn wants to know. Benji isn't slinging plays. Hollywood is stuck on boners. And Max killed his only pet. Remember

EpiDose 180- GROW UP AND BE YOUR PARENTS
Thu, Oct 08 2015
Do you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up? Why aren't you that now? That's what Tim Mahon wants to know. Learn a bit about the life Max didn't choose, about Hollywood's parents fairy tale, and how Benji is staying true to his 14 year old self. Remember

EpiDose 179- SPEND THAT LUCKY LOTTO MONEY
Thu, Oct 01 2015
Sam wants to know how we got so lucky - but what is luck? Is it a matter of making good decisions and careful choices? Is it all about perception? Is it simply putting yourself in the proper position? Is it winning the lotto? Remember

EpiDose 178- BY THE POWER OF GRAYSKULL
Thu, Sep 24 2015
Jonah in Washington, DC wants to know about secret identities. Good thing Joel Rainwater, from Youtube's The Perfect Spiral, drops by to help us figure out why no one in Eternia could tell that He-man and Prince Adam were the same person. Remember

EpiDose 177- ONCE TWICE THREE TIMES A DEBBIE
Thu, Sep 17 2015
World traveling photographer and loyal listener, Audrey Phillips, wants to know what we would always do once, sometimes twice, and never three times. Hollywood thinks it's a riddle. Max gives bad advice. And Benji is effortlessly a wild card. Remember

EpiDose 176- ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL
Thu, Sep 10 2015
It's a good thing Jay Seevers decides to stop by. He's the only reason the show doesn't descend into a history lesson about the Cleveland Browns. Our good buddy, Felipe Nunez, wants us to talk football. Who are the best players of the last two decades? Remember

EpiDose 175- EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON
Thu, Sep 03 2015
This week's show is about one of life's big questions: are funeral-erections inappropriate? Wait, not that one. Does everything happen for a reason? It's free will versus fate. Two concepts enter and only one survives. Unless you're Max. Did you know that God loves Benji? Or that Hollywood has beautiful wings? Remember

EpiDose 174- YOU GOT TRUMPED
Thu, Aug 27 2015
Jay Seevers stops back by Consensual Studios to fight the good fight and look for his hands. And it's a good thing to, because Bradley Baker (shout out NOLA) wants us to discuss the state of popular entertainment. Too bad we end up talking politics. Benji blames the media. Hollywood is up in arms about the Presidential race and Max is bored. Remember

EpiDose 173- TRUTHS ABOUT MARRIAGE
Thu, Aug 20 2015
This week Benji's better half, Jessica, wants us to talk about marriage. Is it worth it? Is it what you thought it'd be? What has it taught you? And it turns out the answers are yes, no, and sometimes you don't know you need taken care of until somebody starts. Remember

EpiDose 172- TOMORROW YOU DIE
Thu, Aug 13 2015
Down a host but up two guests. Hollywood is off being a midget through binoculars but luckily Jonah Schein and Rachel Zukrow are sitting in to talk about fate and death. For Benji it's all about the time frame. Max is into the mystery. Jonah asks why and Rachel is busy talking about prison and retirement. Remember

EpiDose 171- BLACKING OUT WITH GABBY
Thu, Aug 06 2015
Funny thing about blacking out - it's tough to remember. But that doesn't stop Boston Gabby from making us talk about it. Hooray! Benji offers helpful advice on handling solicitors. Hollywood is busy profiling and Max defends a serial killer. Remember

EpiDose 170- WHY OR WHY NOT
Thu, Jul 30 2015
Long time listener - first time caller, Rachel Zukrow aka. Dr. Zooks of Venezuela, makes her I and U debut. It's a deep and probing topic courtesy of Phil Roerbachker and we're painting with our big brush. Max is selfist. Hollywood gets defensive. Benji gives cosplay advice and all poor Rachel can do is laugh. Remember

EpiDose 169- SENSELESS SEX IN THE CITY
Thu, Jul 23 2015
Hollywood is out trying to earn a buck. Elwin Green is back in Consensual Studios. But it's really Dave Blake's topic that steals the show. It takes six people collaborating to bring y'all this gem about Sex In the City and which primary sense you'd ditch. Remember

EpiDose 168- INNER HAPPINESS
Thu, Jul 16 2015
With Hollywood off getting paid to be awesome, Max is left on sound. He did the best he could...which is good because Elwin Green is in-studio all the way from Dayton, OH. Lucky for us he knows a thing or two about happiness...and that's what this EpiDose is all about. Remember

EpiDose 167- BEHOLD YOUR SUPERPOWERS
Thu, Jul 09 2015
The Weather Man, Tomorrow, and Sand Bird face off thanks to Felipe Nunez. What? You've never heard of these superheroes or villains? Well, that's because we made them up. We're down host, up a Kevin, and Cho was a ho. Remember

EpiDose 166- SUPER TALL OR TINY SMALL
Wed, Jul 01 2015
This week we are down our third-half as Benji is too busy being dad. But, the always entertaining Kevin Alan steps in to take his place. It's too bad though...because if there's one things that Benji loves it's midgets. Cody Pendleton wants to know if we'd rather be a really short or really tall.... Remember

EpiDose 165- DADDY DAUGHTER DOES DALLAS
Thu, Jun 25 2015
Is it bad there are a lot of creepy erection jokes in an EpiDose about daddy daughter dances? If so - just blame Kevin Alan and his awkward 6th grade boner. Or Mindi Thrash. It was her topic. But first we need to figure out if we're talking about the wedding tradition or the social construct. Remember

EpiDose 164- WHICH BEATLE YOU IS
Wed, Jun 17 2015
Suck it, Briggs Myers. This week we've got a Beatles personality test thanks to our guest, Kevin Alan. Who cares that he drew this own topic from the bowl? Wanna know why Benji is like Ringo? Or about how the word "yes" began a life-long love? Maybe you're more interested how Darius Rucker became a country singer? Remember

EpiDose 163- YOUR FAVORITEST BOOKS
Thu, Jun 11 2015
Max's dad, Gary, wants to know what our favorite books are...but not before he forces us to break an in-house rule. It's the first ever topic re-draw. Gasp! Hollywood is married to a wood elf, Benji is like Beetle Bailey, and Max gives some love to Drizzt Do'Urdan. Remember

EpiDose 162- MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE
Thu, Jun 04 2015
What is the most useless Transformer? That's what Mike Hammerling wants to know, good thing we Kevin Alan in studio to help us figure it out. Hollywood gets shamed. Benji gets confused. Kevin gets nostalgic. Max gets Gobots. Remember

EpiDose 161- MARRY BOFF KILL - HISTORY EDITION
Thu, May 28 2015
Meredith Roerbacher wants us to choose between two queens and a dancer. It's Marry Boff Kill Bill-and-Ted style this week when Ginger Rogers, Cleopatra, and Marie Antoinette are on the line. Don't worry about how Hilary Clinton, Paula Deen, or Jimmy Kimmel get involved. Remember

EpiDose 160- DARK OR CLEAR
Thu, May 21 2015
Good friend of the show, Phil Roerbacher, asks an age old question - Whiskey or Vodka? ...But we want to know what we're wearing. Are we in linen? Flannel? A funny hat? Besides, with so many other delicious choices what sort of philistine would limit it to just those two? Sure, gin may smell like old people and no one should ever drink 151, but what about Jager? Remember

EpiDose 159- AFTERNOON AND-ALL-OTHER-TIMES DELIGHT
Thu, May 14 2015
Are you like College Max and like it in the mornings? Are Benji-afternoon-geurrilla-style romps more your speed? Or, do you prefer to do it in the evenings like Hollywood? This week, Mike Reid wants to know - when is the best time to have sex? Don't mind the technical difficulties around the two minutes mark, it was just us thinking about Nic Cage. Remember

EpiDose 158- INANIMATE OBJECT A-HOLES
Thu, May 07 2015
Matt Riley wants to know about resistentialism and which inanimate objects would be the worst to deal with if they sentient. What if your shower had the personality of a pervey homeless dude? Do all pickles sound like Will Ferrel playing Harry Caray? Don't you think all Segways are named Lance and wear a scarf? Remember

EpiDose 157- HINDU GODS
Thu, Apr 30 2015
In honor of turning three, we wanted to release an EpiDose that really does the name of the show proud. Thanks to Rekha Roa's questions - which hindu god would you be? - we can. Benji auditions for The Gong Show, Max leaves all his friends behind, and Hollywood's spirit animal in Dumbo. Remember

EpiDose 156- STAR WARS PREQUELS AND PUNCH
Thu, Apr 23 2015
Our buddy from the Bay area, Adam Arenstein, wants to know if Star Wars can live up to the hype. See, this 33 year old had never seen the original trilogy (until a very recent visit to Colorado) and wanted to know about expectations and build up. Too bad it turns into a half hour of Hollywood hating on the Prequels. Remember

EpiDose 155- FORCED FREE FALLS
Thu, Apr 16 2015
Benji's has done it solo, Max has done it with another man, and Hollywood will never do it. This week we're talking about skydiving courtesy of Tim Mahon. Did you know that you don't really have the sensation of losing your stomach when falling out of the plane? Or that the state of Alabama isn't exactly sold on safety? How about the face that you can actually choke on oxygen? Remember

EpiDose 154- THE GOSPEL OF LEBRON
Thu, Apr 09 2015
This week Max's father, Gary Sirak, wants to know about holding grudges (all thanks to Akron, OH's favorite prodigal son). Are you like Hollywood and blame Canada? Do you fall more into Benji's camp of no second chances? Maybe you're like Max and prefer to take yours out on fast food chains and athletes you've never met? No matter where you all on the spectrum just remember

EpiDose 153- HOLLYWOOD SAYS SUCK IT
Thu, Apr 02 2015
Everyone can thank our own Ben-Hollywood-Captain-Jub-Jub-Mongoleian-Pork-Bundles-Whitmore for this gem. But, it is kind of fitting. I mean, who else would have the gall to demand oral fulfillment? In the interest of full disclosure, this topic was actually the test email we sent to "topics" to make sure it worked all those years ago. Remember

EpiDose 152- MYSTICAL CREATURES FIGHT FOREVER
Thu, Mar 26 2015
Come one, come all to the Monster Celebrity Deathmatch! This week, Mark Sprague stops by in time to discuss Dave Blake's topic: Who would win in a fight between Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster? But, being us, we decided to take it up a step further. In a super secret substance that makes environmental factors meaningless, which monster would you choose? Remember

EpiDose 151- POOPY DIARRHEA PANTS
Thu, Mar 19 2015
This EpiDose is actually the 200th one we recorded and pro-tip - do not listen to it at mealtime. You'll learn a lot about Hollywood, some about Benji, a bit about Max, and maybe even a little something about yourself. Phil Roerbacher wants us to talk about poop, and you know what, we decided we could do better and threw a little blood into the mix as well. Remember

EpiDose 150- ULTIMATE MUSIC SOULDOWN
Thu, Mar 12 2015
Our homie, Felipe Nunez, gave us a game to play - In a battle of the bands with your soul at stake, who would you choose? Good thing our buddy, Mark Sprague, was sitting in to lend us his line-up. It doesn't matter that we can't remember how to keep score, it's cool. We totally got this. Remember

EpiDose 149 - NETHER PAINS
Thu, Mar 05 2015
Congratulations and welcome to the longest EpiDose to date! Either Phil Collins or Nic Cage wants to know which is worse: crotch pain or butt pain and we do our best. Did you know that giraffes have two hearts (they're Time Lords!)? Or, that sexual numbers are sort of like hospital pain charts? What about how to tell if you're sleeping with a whore? Remember

EpiDose 148- BIG BLACK DUCKS
Thu, Feb 26 2015
Better an absent host than an absent father. With Benji busy being a dad, the unsinkable Kevin Brown (Alan) come's to the rescue only to get his mind blown...by a dick joke. Funny though, it all started innocent enough with a question from Tom Coyne: Which animated duck is better Daffy, Darkwing, or Donald? But what we really want to know is how come ducks don't wear pants? Remember

EpiDose 147- TAKE A SELFIE
Thu, Feb 19 2015
Why do the opinions of strangers matter so much? Is our self-esteem that fragile? Are we all channeling our inner Ron Burgundy and just want people to come see how good we look? What is pretty funny and extremely abused? The selfie. Special guest, David Dunlap, stops by to tell us about looking like Meatloaf and to help us get to the root of Mollie Bell's question. Remember

EpiDose 146- FACEBOOK FIRED
Thu, Feb 12 2015
If people were smart with their stuff, it wouldn't be a problem. If people didn't overreact, it wouldn't be a problem. If people stopped misrepresenting themselves, it wouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately, we're all people...which means that sometimes social media gets away from us. D-Train wants to know if people should be fired because of Facebook. Well, D, first you need to remember

EpiDose 145- DREAMS OF POSEIDON
Thu, Feb 05 2015
Have you ever been ear-tube-water-boarded? What about being chased around a house that isn't your house by a shadow and escaped outside only to discover that the driveway and the minivan parked in it are covered in bees? No? Hmmm....well, then what sort of recurring dreams have you had? That's what Misty Summer (such an awesome name), friend of the show, wants to know. Remember

EpiDose 144- BLIND BUTTHOLES
Thu, Jan 29 2015
Do you fold, wrap, or crumple? Are wet wipes your go-to? We got a doozy of a topic from Nick Albu and had a lot of fun giving it our best shot, at least for three non-visually impaired guys discussing the implications of blindness in the bathroom. I mean, how do you know when you're done wiping if you can't look at the paper? Remember

EpiDose 143- ALIENS ARE HERE
Thu, Jan 22 2015
First off, we apologize for the technical difficulties, but, let's be honest, no one actually cares what Hollywood has to say, right? In all seriousness, this is just further proof of our commitment to unedited entertainment. Speaking of truth, did you know there are about enough facts out there to prove almost anything? It's true. Just ask the History Channel. Remember

EpiDose 142- CAWFEE TAWK
Thu, Jan 15 2015
Hollywood love's it. Benji is back on it. Max got beat with it in middle school. This week it's all about the wonderful deliciousness of coffee (although, turns out caffeine stories are nowhere near as entertaining as cocaine stories). Did you know that you were supposed to use milk and sugar to make flavored coffee good? Or that wearing your I and U shirt helps you pass tests? Didn't think so. Remember

EpiDose 141- TOOTSIE POPS
Thu, Jan 08 2015
Are you a sucker or a chomper? Is it about efficiency or giving up? The destination or the journey? Nina Waters from Twitter wants to know how many licks does it take to get to the candy center of a Tootsie Pop? Remember

EpiDose 140- LIFESTLYES AND ANDES
Thu, Jan 01 2015
Happy 2015!!! What would it be like if at 18 years old you had to register to vote and choose a condiment? One single condiment (to rule them all) and it was the only one you could ever use? That's what Rachel Zukrow wants to know, and with the help of Phil Rohrbacher, we do our best. Suck it Heinz. Remember

EpiDose 139- TORTURED SOULS AND NICKELBACK
Thu, Dec 25 2014
Does creativity come from having extra-feelings? Because you know the art, do you know the artist? Is it the sensitive that create the great? Is there any great music that doesn't come from tortured soul? Is pop-country better than real-country? Does art only come from experience? Who knows? Remember

EpiDose 138- MAX SUX JAG RAGS
Thu, Dec 18 2014
In honor of Hanukkah... Was it his chubby middle school days? What about his sad Hebrew School story? Maybe it's one of the other 15 reasons that comes up in this epidose featuring good friend of the show, Phil Rohrbacher. Someone wants us to talk about "Max Sux" and by god we give the people what they want. It's the I&U way! Remember

EpiDose 137- GAMBLING THE AMERICAN DREAM
Thu, Dec 11 2014
From the Coca-cola commercials of the 50's to the reality TV of today, the American Dream has changed. It used to be the immigrant dream, now it's a dream of immigration. All of us in the States are just trying to get to Canada. But, more importantly, there are all sorts of new toys for us to play with in the studio. Woohoo! Remember

EpiDose 136- UNSOLICITED ADVICE
Thu, Dec 04 2014
Just because someone told you something as a kid doesn't mean it makes good advice as an adult, isn't that right special guest Jeff Wacker? You can only believe none of what you hear and half of what you read...unless it's on the Internet, then it's like hearing it, only you're reading...unless it's a podcast. (Case in point). Remember

EpiDose 135- HELP HELP IM BEING SELF OPPRESSED
Thu, Nov 27 2014
If everyone goes chasing their dreams, then who's going to do the stuff that makes the world work? Sure, none of us enjoy being bossed around by a chest of drawers, but society is in part based on some self-control. We all can't be fully actualized warlords, right? Look, we know it would better to take an active stance, reach our full potential, and live like Jimmy Buffet in the Florida Keyes, but c'mon...Remember

EpiDose 134- HUGS AND DRUGS
Thu, Nov 20 2014
Special guest, Jeff Wacker, sits in for a conversation about responsible drug use brought to you by Trucker-Meth! From the stripper-DJ-Vincent-Price intro (seriously, turn down the volume for the first 30 seconds) to the 48-hour-peyote-star-pudding its an entertaining chat about environment, environment, environment. Remember

EpiDose 133- KENTUCKY FRIED POKEMON
Thu, Nov 13 2014
Is there anything wrong with enslaving cute, innocent, sentient creatures to fight for our amusement? Nah...as long as it is on Gameboy and has a customizable card game and a cartoon to go along with it. Chinpokomon! This week it's all about the moral implications of Pokemon. Remember

EpiDose 132- YOUR TEAM SUCKS
Thu, Nov 06 2014
Why do you hate the teams you hate? Are you like Benji and it's because their fans are d-bags? Could it be that your arch-rival team lacks heart or bought there players for obscene amounts of cash? That's what makes Hollywood hate teams. Ironic, right? Max and special guest Tim Ackerman hate obnoxious winners. Remember

EpiDose 131- MASTERS OF TIME SPACE AND BOOBIES
Thu, Oct 30 2014
What do air guitar, a dying panda, and the saddest Stephen Hawking birthday party have in common? Probably not much, at least not until I&U gets their dirty little dickbeaters on them. If you could see all time and space, what would you do? Would you suffer from the Cassandra Complex or the Bill and Ted Corollary? What if your choices were between fast-forwarding to Encino Man or rewinding to Shawshank? Remember

EpiDose 130- DISNEY PRINCESS RAINBOW DREAMS
Thu, Oct 23 2014
C'mon, we've all see a bunch of Disney movies, right? Well, it turns out Hollywood has (he knows all the words to Frozen) but Max and Benji are pretty useless. Good thing Benji IS a Disney Princess. That makes it way easier when he and the rest of the gang have to choose their favorite. The conversation also includes villains and over-all favorite Disney feature. Did you know the main adversary in Fox and the Hound was segregation? Remember

EpiDose 129- OH THE PLACES YOU MAY ONE DAY GO
Thu, Oct 16 2014
How well do you know the place you live? Are you like a farmer? Do you have all the special keys for NYC? Do you live by old 427 in Lake Mary or some place more exotic, like Detroit? Max confuses Hollywood with algebra and then offends a whole city. Benji is on the lam in the Rockies, but it's cool because he's a see-new-places kind of guy anyway, sort of. Remember

EpiDose 128- DYNAMIC DUOS
Thu, Oct 09 2014
Batman and Robin? Abbott and Costello? Brian and Stewie? Laurel and Hardy? Bugs and Daffy? Shaggy and Scooby? Tom and Jerry? Tomax and Xamot? Freddy and Jason? Lonestar and Barf? Felix and Oscar? Ren and Stimpy? Pinky and The Brain? C3PO and R2D2? Candlestick and the clock guy? Which is the best dynamic duo? That's what we're after in the last installment of Kevin Alan's guest residency. Remember

EpiDose 127- FREAKS AND GREEKS
Thu, Oct 02 2014
Professor Hollywood, Master of Mythology, shines this week (but doesn't he always?). Special guest, Kevin Alan, picks on a kid with disabilities (it's the DC way!). Max asks random questions and chooses Kevin Sorbo. All the while Benji is screaming for more mechanical owl! Is the term Christian Mythology offensive? Who's ever heard of a 5-headed snake? Did you know Apollo was the God of dark meat? Remember

EpiDose 126- CHARITABLE DONATIONS TO US
Thu, Sep 25 2014
This week's release features not one, but two special guests (albeit one is a four-month old). Actor, Kevin Alan, returns and Benji's daughter, Riley, joins us as we discuss charities. Does the Human Fund count? Max goes tech and education. Benji is concerned with allowing manatees (the postal workers of the sea) to unleash their inner-hipster. Kevin chooses the arts and obviously Hollywood chooses himself. Remember

EpiDose 125- YUCKY POOPY PANTS
Wed, Sep 17 2014
Tana Fox wants to know about the yucky things we've done and it turns out special guests Kevin Alan and Riley Pickens have plenty to say...well...Kevin does at least, Riley doesn't really talk yet. Kevin apologizes to our non-existent fan base. Benji gets Costa-Rican-caught. Hollywood the Corruptor cleans up a boozy night of Strogranoff, and Max is a cold-blooded-Columbus-dog-killer. Remember

EpiDose 124- CORPORATE SHAME
Thu, Sep 11 2014
Special guest, Kevin Alan, sits down to discuss crappy jobs. Whether it's because you are "Merchant of Death" like in Thank You For Smoking or simply doing something on the grosser side of things (cleaning Port-O-Johns in winter) there are some bad ways to make a buck. What's the worst? Monsanto? Abortion doctor? Fracking? Halliburton? Police Czar? Marketing Happy-O's? Applebees? Anyone involved in Nickelback? President of United States of America? Foreign porn voice overs? Remember

EpiDose 123- MOVIE ARMY WAR
Thu, Sep 04 2014
If you had to choose one movie to be your army and one continent to launch your assault for all-out-world-domination from, what would they be? Classically trained Shakespearean actor, Kevin Alan, goes classic horror down-under. Max is staying warm with an alien in their Antarctic Fortress of Companionship. Benji takes the World War Z zombies to the continent of China and Hollywood chooses the Armies of Men (in Minas Tirith, of course) with the Fellowship at the helm. It's a battle royale! Remember

EpiDose 122- TALKS ON SOCKS
Thu, Aug 28 2014
From Honky Problems to The Fresh Prince and To Catch A Predator with many stops in between. Do you know the difference between Fruit of the Loom and Haynes? Or that true wealth is never wearing the same pair of socks twice? Would you drag your rope-tied britches across Andy Snarkinson's face? Did you know Benji got in trouble for wearing leggings in the army? Hollywood wears good tax filing socks and Max prefers his bougie for fighting dragons. Remember

EpiDose 121- BOOK ARE READING
Thu, Aug 21 2014
It's a full house in Consensual Studios as Rob "Roll-tide" Williams and Mike Ritzman stop by again and this time it's all about books you lied about reading. Is it bad that the bible was one of the first brought up? Probably not. Do catalogs count as books? What if Brad Pitt played Huckleberry Finn? Is it just "smart" books that people lie about reading? Remember

EpiDose 120- MYTHICAL NIGHTMARES
Thu, Aug 14 2014
Look, zombies have been enjoying the apocalyptic limelight for a while now, which is why this EpiDose is all about apes, bugs, and Scientology. Max gets ninja-put in his place, Benji goes micro, and little kid Hollywood kicks the ocean. We enact the No-Reeves-Rule, discuss the stellar fore shadowing of Pacific Rim (job), and of course why it's Godzilla's caloric intake and bone density that make him (or her) unrealistic. Remember

EpiDose 119- VIOLENCE AND NATURE
Thu, Aug 07 2014
In honor of our good friend (and this week's topic provider) Jay getting married --- Plentiful food and easy entertainment make for docile populations but will violence ever be scienced out of us? Is it just consequences that keep us peaceful? Do you wear your sunglasses at night so you can, so you can, so you can throw fireballs? Benji thinks that squirrel was asking for it, Hollywood is stuck on week-long alien mensies, and Max is busy being an amateur pachydermatologist. Remember

EpiDose 118- PRANKS AND SKANKS
Thu, Jul 31 2014
Being Benji's friend has its risks, just ask special guests Rob "Roll-Tide" Williams and Mike Ritzman, who stopped by Consensual Studios to discuss practical joking. Turns out, Benji has gotten everyone in the room at least once. Max reveals his high school vandal past, Hollywood and his buddy, Diabetic Ben, break hearts, and even the hearing impaired aren't spared. Remember

EpiDose 117- YOGA FRESH VS MC RESIDUAL CHECK
Thu, Jul 24 2014
Shout outs to - Corals, Slutbag McWhorestank, Mikey Greene, Drew the Cat, Dustin Ruiz, Macky, Klepto McStealyfingers, and Smelly Dinosaur Nipples because this week it's all about roommates. Mrs. Hollywood (Debbie Whitmore) stops by and shares some horror stories of her own during this Festivus Epidose (sort of). Remember

EpiDose 116- APOCALYPTIC LOVE DUNGEON
Thu, Jul 17 2014
John Schorling sits in and comes out swinging before he OD's on heroin. Benji is taking applications and adopting his own Freedom35 plan. Max puts Hollywood in an oddly appropriate dark mood by yelling and everything they know about the end of the world they learned from Walking Dead and World War Z. That's better than the bible, right? How long does eternal winter last? Remember

EpiDose 115- READING ON THE JOHN
Thu, Jul 10 2014
Everyone spends time taking a crap. No matter how quick or slow you go those are valuable entertainment minutes that are passing you by. Special guest Tim prefers word searches. Hollywood likes movie trailers. Benji plays so many games on his phone his legs go numb. Max still lives in the 20th Century and reads books. Remember

EpiDose 114- ITS ALL FUN AND GAMES AND NAM
Thu, Jul 03 2014
In honor of the 4th, meet the man who made Hollywood cry by conquering Asia (hint- it's his dad), brush up on your military history, and learn the difference between spending and wasting. Why is Warhammer like dance-fighting? Why is Catan just economic Risk? How was Dungeons and Dragons the first video game? Do kids in North Korea play Xbox Un? It's all about the games we play and what they have to teach us

EpiDose 113- INNER SAUCINESS
Thu, Jun 26 2014
Which is more generic ranch or BBQ? Did you know Benji might be saffron? Wanna hear Hollywood's sad truth? It's pepper, paprika, coriander, and tons of things you didn't know about salt because we made them up--this week it's all about inner-spices. Remember

EpiDose 112- SIGHTSEEING THE FRONT LINES
Thu, Jun 19 2014
Special guest John Schorling stops by to dispel some popular misconceptions about the War of 1812. Hollywood's nationalistic tendencies get the best of him then he chooses Ben Affleck. Hear Benji's reason for drinking black tea and his goats-for-cats plan while Max kicks it ancient-school. Did you know that cotton bales were the original Kevlar? Remember

EpiDose 111- ALBUMS AND GANG WARS
Thu, Jun 12 2014
In honor of the first day of this year's Bonnaroo - when is the last time you actually listened to a whole album? Chances are you're probably like Benji and live your life on shuffle, unless you're a Hollywood kinda guy and rock show tunes. Better than Max's crush on 1996 Fiona Apple, right? Remember

EpiDose 110- GOTTA GET US SOME OF THAT KARDASHIAN MONEY
Thu, Jun 05 2014
What would you do if you didn't have to work for a check? What kind of canoeish crap would you pull with stupid money? Would you get bored like Hollywood and turn towards the dark side with run-of-the-mill villainy? Would you be more like Benji and go polar bear hunting in Scandinavia or violate our aquatic cousins? Remember

EpiDose 109- SPENDING 40 TO 20 AT CHILIS
Thu, May 29 2014
Hollywood and Benji confuse Max (not hard to do) while special guest, Tim Ackerman, chooses the excitement and adventure of his fifties and sixties. Check out Mr. F-ck the Kids, our auto-tune remix, and remember to save the mucus year! Besides, who would ever want to go back in time to before the Internet?

EpiDose 108- MONEY AND CHAOTIC EVIL
Thu, May 22 2014
Jess, Benji's lovely wife, sits in and does her best to keep everyone on topic but it's a struggle. I mean, who wouldn't want to talk about Jim Belushi and elephant rescue? Or Hollywood's resume (featuring his senior superlative)? Listen as we bebazzle your mind with interesting facts, math jokes, and our alien saviors

EpiDose 107- DANCE DANCE EVOLUTION
Thu, May 15 2014
Benji is a stripper pole, Hollywood is at a sock-hop, and Max just pretends he's seeing Phish. It's go-to dance moves this week, so look out! No really. We'll probably elbow you. Are you dancer or a mover? Did you know Ben failed one class four times in college? Let us regale you with tales of the day that both Max and Benji felt like the most talent-less sacks on the planet and learn "fundamentals of dance technique" aka "Retard Dance" from Ben

EpiDose 106- TATTOOS AND BELIEBERS
Thu, May 08 2014
Tom Whitmore, Hollywood's father, wants to know if there is anything anyone can do to make Justin Bieber tough? There isn't, which is too bad because this week is Bieber vs Care Bears in a fight to the ink-lined death. Two men (mammals?) enter and only one returns to be the worst tattoo to get you laid. PS - if she doesn't seem to like you, you should probably follow her to work

EpiDose 105- ZOMBIE SKI APOCALYPSE
Thu, May 01 2014

EpiDose 104- EVERY GOOD LIFE NEEDS CREOLE SPICES
Thu, Apr 24 2014
In order to celebrate two years of releases this EpiDose is chalked full of (surprisingly) good advice about life, who knew? It's about Robbie Joe's Hot and Spicy, Dave's Jalapeno Salt, and the difference between real-happy and used-car-salesmen happy. In the end, the only thing you can count on is the I&U gaurantee

EpiDose 103- CHUCKING WOOD CHUCKS
Thu, Apr 17 2014
Jessica Pickens (Benji's lovely wife) stops by for pheasant plucking, shell stores, broken butter biscuits, diction, drums, and dragons as we discuss tongue twisters. Learn about Hollywood's sensible yoga-pants-codpiece and how gets treated by a Jack Russell named Winston. Max craves feedback and only Benji would joke about incest. Quick - what rhymes with 42 cubits

EpiDose 102- SUPERHERO GIRLFRIENDS
Thu, Apr 10 2014
If you had to date a superhero, who would it be? Hollywood gets frustrated by Benji and Max's lack of nerdity while professing his X-Men love. Max flips the script and decides he'd rather go villain and then Harley Quinn wins by a landslide. PS- watch out for the tendril-porn!

EpiDose 101- BECAUSE IT SAW THE SALAD DRESSING
Thu, Apr 03 2014
Space rocks, catfish, women, pirates, dwarves, free nuts, polar bears, penguins x2, mechanics, white guilt, midget nuns, leprechauns, and dead frogs. This week it's about jokes and puns and it a good thing because Special Guest Tim Ackerman has a lot. It's YoLo's, twittergrams, and tongues sticking out. Remember: It's not slavery. Those are work camps.

EpiDose 100- FURRY SUPER VILLAINS
Thu, Mar 27 2014
Cats. "They are unpredictable and therefore frightening," according to Hollywood. Max admires their independence. Benji thinks they are just rich people shoes. Special guest, Gary (Max's dad) tells about his hate-hate relationship with his cat. One piece of advice: If you ever hear cousin Jimmy say, "Y'all ready?!" Look out

EpiDose 99- PICK UP LINES w/ LAUREN
Thu, Mar 20 2014
What exactly is a pick-up line? Any one you've ever heard. "So, that's what the fox says." "Is your dad a meat-burglar?" "Does this smell like chloroform to you?" "Nice Elbows." That last one actually worked on today's guest.

EpiDose 98- WEIRD PLACES TO DO IT
Thu, Mar 13 2014
There is no question both Ben and Benji love their wives. That said, public parks, pulled over on the side of the highway, in the garage of a drunk Indian, and a Civil War Reenactment are just a taste of what's to come when we pull (out) a topic on exotic places we've knocked boots. Aaaawwww yeah...240 dollars worth of pudding

EpiDose 97- I DO WHAT I WANT
Thu, Mar 06 2014
This week in Consensual Studios (located conveniently next to Unconsensual Garage) Tim Ackerman drops by and learns about the buoyancy of Asians, what working for Hitler at the grocery store might be like and riding unicycles to the zoo! It's about consequences, anarchy, karma, and uncomfortably white art

EpiDose 96- CREATIONIST AND THE CIVIL WAR
Thu, Feb 27 2014
This week we celebrate Black History Month in our own special ignorant and uninformed way! Listen to Cpt. Jub-Jub explain to the Yanks how Civil War Reenactments work...and how Darth Vader is Jesus. Benji cautions everyone to look our for the "hows", meanwhile Max laments the decline of debates

EpiDose 95- FIVE ALBUMS TO SAVE THE WORLD
Thu, Feb 20 2014
Lauren Rainen: woman of speed, style, and freedom joins us as we lawyer the piss out of our question. Music is good, even if it's Hollywood's Bar Mitzvah band or a mix tape. Don't expect any business from Benji if you can't spell your company name right and Max spends the whole time trying to get Ben to shoot energy drink out of his nose. BOOSH!

EpiDose 94- MILLENNIAL BOOMERANGS
Thu, Feb 13 2014
Look! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Gary from the block...no wait...that's Captain Jub-Jub here to shatter dreams. Hooray! Look people, you can do incredible things, at least according to Max, but it takes hard work and sacrifice. Meanwhile Benji blames the parents and Hollywood tells it like it is. Because, you know, sometimes the real world f-ing sucks

EpiDose 93- BOOKS AND TV
Thu, Feb 06 2014
Vivavi creator Dave Blake stops by this week to discuss which is better: TV or books. Guess which he chose? Learn about Benji's spankin' Snuggie, that it's all about execution for Max, and that nothing is worse to Hollywood than bad TV

EpiDose 92- ONE STATE TWO STATE RED STATE BLUE STATE
Thu, Jan 30 2014
"If you agree with everything that someone says you should probably start thinking for yourself." That might be the best thing Benji has ever said, which is good because Max and Hollywood just keep quoting obscure cartoons.

EpiDose 91- BUTTOCKS AND BREASTASES
Thu, Jan 23 2014
It gets cacophonous in Consensual Studios, but that's just because yoga pants make Benji love life again. Besides, we also have a special guest with us, President George Clinton! Just kidding. It's Laruen Rainen and if you want to cozy up to her you better have nice elbows. It's a topic so superficial Hollywood love it and Max's autism demands it be thirty minutes...THIRTY MINUTES!!!

EpiDose 90- BIG BIRD AND THE REST OF YOUR CHILDHOOD
Thu, Jan 16 2014
In this sober adventure we take it back...like Reading Rainbow and Sesame Street, back. Yeah, sure, Abby Cadabby and Yo-Gabba-Gabba come up too...but really it's about the agenda of children's television.

EpiDose 89- HANGOVER FOODS
Thu, Jan 09 2014
Burgers, pizza, doughnuts..really anything with gravy will do for Benji. Max is happy as long as he's got some walkin'-around pork and sometimes Hollywood just needs some Micky D's

EpiDose 88- BEST AWFUL MOVIES
Thu, Jan 02 2014
Mothra, Godzilla, Ultraman, but really we're just talking about Shaft. At least we think that's what Benji's talking about...either way it all ends with a nice little group sing-a-long to a TV favotire

EpiDose 87- UGLY SMART STUPID SEXY
Thu, Dec 26 2013
The Holidays are a tough time of year and we here at I&U are no exception. In the first ever Benji-less EpiDose, Hollywood and Max carry on the only way they can - by drinking. That's what you do to fill the emptiness, right?

EpiDose 85- GETTING HIGH IN THE ROCKIES
Thu, Dec 12 2013

EpiDose 84- SPANKING SLUT CHILDREN
Thu, Dec 05 2013

Thu, Oct 31 2013

EpiDose 76- SCAPEGOATS AND SQUARE PUPILS
Thu, Oct 10 2013

EpiDose 75- STAR WARS AND PEACE

EpiDose 33- POLYAMOROUS FOR PHIL COLLINS
Thu, Dec 13 2012
Look, I know what you're thinking...and yes, you can be polyamorous for one person. But ONLY if that person is Phil Collins. He's like Nic Cage if the CAGE could sing and play the drums and star in Tarzan all at the same time. So it's polyamory with Nic Cage AND Phil Collins. Anyways, Benji just wanted to make sure you all realize how awesome both Phil Collins and Nicholas Cage truly are. Just dreamy. What? But balancing multiple relationships is no easy task, so listen up before you end up on the wrong end of the devil's three way, staring Max in the face right at OH-time. Ewwww. Right?

EpiDose 32- YOU COULD WIN TEN MILLION
Thu, Dec 06 2012
Yo, son, we got the mad dolla bills this week! Benji spent his life savings on the Powerball drawing last week, and we wanted to figure what we'd be doing if we was straight up ballin'. Don't worry, I'm sure we'll win. I made sure to get struck by lightning just to help out our odds of winning. That's statistically sound science, boys and girls. So, that's what we wanna know...what would you do with crazy benjamins rollin' in? Cars? Women? Sensible real estate investments? You crazy, dawg. Everyone knows the money is in currency speculation. That's straight up TRUTH.

EpiDose 31- FIVE LANGUAGES OR FIVE INSTRUMENTS
Thu, Nov 29 2012
Pop quiz, a-- hole: Cantonese or the banjo? Russian or shredding on the guitar? If you could speak five languages of your choice or play any five instruments in all of existence, what would you pick? Okay... go! Can't decide? Can't decide? Tick tock, tick tock. TOO LATE! Brain aneurism, you're dead! Seriously, how do you even pick between either of those awesome things? Good Lord, sometimes I blow my own mind. Which is called mental-bation. You're welcome boys and girls. If I could speak five languages, this message could have been in Spanish, too. De Nada, beeatches. TRUTH.

EpiDose 30- FEEL LIKE A NATURAL WOMAN
Thu, Nov 22 2012
What if you woke up one day and you were in a different body? What would you do with your new face? No, we're not talking about the epic Nic Cage documentary Face-Off. Okay, we are NOW, but c'mon, when are NOT talking about the grandure of THE CAGE... Sorry, wrong EpiDose. Today we're talking about waking up as a woman... or the opposite gender of whatever you might be (often called Schorling syndrome). All I know is that I feel like natural woman. I am woman, hear me roar. I'm EVERY woman, it's all in me. Girl, you're every woman in the world to me (you're my fantasy). All the women who independent, throw your hands up at me... You go girl, I'll be in the Victoria's Secret taking naughty photos of myself in the dressing room...for...research. Yeah, that's it...RESEARCH.

EpiDose 29- CHUCK N OR THE EGG
Wed, Nov 14 2012
Which came first? The Chicken or the Egg? Chuck Norris or his beard? Does it matter?

And that, children, is how the Earth was created.

It's time to suit up...BIRTHDAY SUIT up, and head down to the nudist beach. Don't worry, were not gonna check out your junk... we're going to laugh at how tiny it is without even looking. I mean, I just ASSUME everyone is smaller than me down there. I gotta be pushing 4, maybe 5 inches... and from the research I've done for countless...wait, am I admitting to studying dude junk? No...no, that's not what I meant...I love the ladies. There will surely be plenty to ogle at the nudist colony, right? What do you mean 'nothing but old European dudes with back hair'? There was no way we could have foreseen this ending as poorly as it did.

EpiDose 27- TIME AND NICHOLAS CAGE
Wed, Oct 31 2012
Time, like Nicholas Cage's career, has mystified humanity for decades. Whether you're talking quantum physics around a black hole, or National Treasure 2....some things you just can't explain. But damned if we aren't going to try... Peace Off!

EpiDose 26- POLITICS-BEAN DIP-AND BINDERS OF WOMEN
Wed, Oct 24 2012
With the election so near, we tackle the big issues like Bean Dip and who would win in a greased up wrasslin' match... probably Taft, just because of the weight factor. Though Lincoln has the reach to land some major hits on that Pu--y JQ Adams. Can we use movie fictional presidents? Cuz in that case I pick Bill Pullman from Independence Day as the first to be KO'd, probably by Morgan Freeman from Deep Impact. Boom! Ring the bell, fights over.

EpiDose 25- FRIENDS AND FAMILY MATTERS
Wed, Oct 17 2012
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the 90s. And we would all sit down every primetime evening and hear the tale of a lovable, irksome, nerdy yet ultimately misunderstood black teenager living in a Chicago suburb. He wormed his way into our collective hearts with such soul-melting phrases as "Did I do that?" and....damn. Didn't Urkel ever say anything else? Well, if Urkel wasn't your scene, maybe you spent your days at the Central Perk coffee shop, when for all intents and purposes you SHOULD have been at work. I mean, for god's sake, you live in a ridiculous top floor warehouse sized apartment on the upper West side of NYC... get a job you bum! But don't worry, you'll always have friends like Chandler, Rachel, the nerdy one, the ugly one, the lesbian, and Lisa Kudrow. Wow did her career ever take off.

Wed, Sep 26 2012
