Guestionaut KIT PONGETTI (Scrubs) joins us for an action-packed episode. Justin sounds mad, but as they say, you can't sound a book by its cover sound, right? We unwittingly tackle a collection of questions fitting neatly into a "hand" theme, including:
And famous remarried TV personalities (and former Olympians) SHEILA AND MURRAY WORTHINGTON join Justin to answer a single-serving "ice cream" themed collection of questions including (and limited to):
Justin reaches in his pants to discuss George Washington's sweet merchandizing deal and the Goddess Venus' need for clamshell pasties. Doug Mandel, BPA (Blog and Podcast Agent) drops by to explore some exciting opportunities for stepping up The Questionauts to the next level. All this, plus the guys give bullet-proof answers to a few questions:
In what turned out to be our least politically-correct episode yet, Justin and Aaron take a trip "inside the beltway" with their wonkish Guestionauts, Philip Bump and Michael Elliot.
We also stay fair and balanced by getting the conservative side of the story from SiriusXM's King of Talk: Chick Masters. The gang answers a slew of politically-themed questions from the mailbag, including:
Actor/Writer/Comedian Matt Price (TNT's "Men of a Certain Age") joins the Questionauts and to tell "necessity" to take a hike: food is the mother of invention. Along with a performance from Aaron's recent one man show, the guys reveal a dirty little secret about Burlington Coat Factory. They also answer these listener-supported questions:
- When did cereal become such a staple of the American breakfast?
- What are some cool new origame paper folds?
- What's the difference between "fancy" ketchup and the regular stuff?
The Questionauts discuss Justin's eco-unfriendly hobby and Aaron's LSD-laced doctor visit. Even with some technical difficulties, they still manage to fully and irrefutably answer these Listener-Supplied conunDrums (or LSDs):
- What is the catchiest jingle ever written?
- What's with "lamps" in genie stories? Why do they look so different from lamps today?
The Questionauts reveal hidden meanings behind popular movies (Three Kings and The Social Network), and take a trip down memory lane to the days when Fonz.com ruled the internet. In addition, they give undeniably-infallible answers to these questions:
- What's with the 3 crowns on Swedish Sports Jerseys?
- What happened to MySpace?
- What's the technical term for double-jointedness?
KIT PONGETTI GUEST STARS, and the Questionauts riff on Dog Waste Disposal Systems, tell tales of bloody competition back in their bunker-dwelling days, and Justin gets confused for Bryant Gumble. They also find time to improvise answers to the following dills of a pickle:
- Why do papercuts hurt so much?
- How can I be a better (w)rapper?
- What's the only co-ed sport in the Summer Olympics?
In our second episode, the Questionauts are coming to you live from Cexcler Hall at good ol' University of Michigan, Urbana Campus (Go Fighting Derelicts!). We tackle a conspiracy theory, and ask some difficult questions of our own about the nation's over-reliance on vertical janitors.
This week's listener questions:
- Why does it (still?) read "In God We Trust" on our money?
- What exactly are those strange "chem trails" people are reporting in the night sky?
- Where does the saying "Hair of the Dog" come from?
- Did Abraham Lincoln have a growing disorder? Possibly gigantism?
In our inaugural podcast, the Questionauts tackle the following headscratchers:
The U.S. doesn’t use the metric system, so why do we happily consume two-liter bottles of soda?
Is there a way to unskunk “skunked” beer?
Do swimmers get head lice, or does the chlorine kill those nasty little critters?
If eternity is forever, is half of eternity equally as long?
