JPC, Scott Piebenga and Mark Piebenga

Friend of the show John Patrick Coan guest-hosts this week as James was supposed to leave early and never does. We bring brothers Mark and Scott Piebenga on to discuss things they don’t want the other to know. We invent, not one, but two new sexual positions for adventurous Overshare listeners to try with their loved ones, and we ruin high fives for everyone.

James and Alex Solo Show III

James and Alex take some time to themselves to discuss Alex’s recent trip to his parent’s retirement home in the gayest part of Florida, where the social dynamics lead to some embarrassing assumptions. We also talk about the recent flood of pop culture news, including the cumulative outrage over lightsabers, black stormtroopers, and Jared Leto.

Nico Carter and Brandon Shockney

This week Nico Carter and Brandon Shockney, two Overshare favorites, return to the show and bring it…twice! Due to a techical malfunction, we recorded two episodes this week, and one can be heard right here on Peaches and Hot Sauce.

Every important piece of pop-culture has a wedding episode, and we’re no different, just not important!
