We got this show out a bit late, but well worth the wait.  There's some great, great music and we start off with some usual banter with Melyssa and Dave, but then the epic story of Dave being hunted down in his underwear by a man-eating bat.  OK, that's an exaggeration, but not by much.  (the underwear part is true)  A must listen!

Melyssa and Dave have a grand old time with this show.  A message from the beyond from GLB starts the show.  Once again, Melyssa helps Dave shop for stuff he has no business shopping for.  World events have us down, but we're ready for the Revolution.  Hooray for festivals!  Not.

A huge show with Juliette, Nina, Dan and Chris (oh, and Melyssa and Dave).  We talk about Fringe Festivals, Glamping, creepy celebrities and the ins and outs of working for yourself.  Did you know the Muppets song, Manamana, is really from the soundtrack of an Italian Porn?  (SFW) Oh, I will find this movie. We really had a fun time with this show.

Melyssa tries out some new toxic Doritos product so we relive some old times with some old bits.  Which gets us talking about what is humor in these days of trigger warnings and such.  July 4th is all about making up with estranged friends.  Dave may have killed diabetes...but probably not.  And we brag about our kids.

This show is pretty much a stream of consiousness effort by Melyssa and Dave.  New York State politics, gardening, local jazzfest, community radio and yes, Ewan McGregor's penis.  It can't always be about Dave's junk.  We also have some really good music along with a book review of a book that too expensive for any of us to read.

Dave has his voice back and Melyssa has Scarlett!  Our newest TSBS buddy is a drum-playing hoarder who rocks.  Looks like Dave's gonna be on the hook for 10 Grow Boxes, but that's not a bad thing.  Melyssa's getting drum lessons from Scarlett.  We learn how hard it is to be a girl geek. Seriously.  Are family bonds strong enough to withstand evil empires?  Let's find out.

Dave went and got arrested again, and was screaming so much at The Man that he has no voice.  So this week, Stuart put together some music that's been qued up combined with some classic TSBS bits.  He even included the hard-to-find Candadian Meth sketch featuring a young Kezziah Kelsey and a sassy Jill Fruehan.  Good stuff!
