John Patrick Coan and Benji Orlansky

We celebrate our hundreth episode by bringing back the two dumbest friends we’ve ever had on the show: Benji Orlansky and John Patrick Coan. Where do we start with this episode description? There’s an alien named Wishbone that lives in Sean Penn’s brain that’s responsible for his success? That pretty much sums it up.

Keenan Camp and Brandon Price

This week James and Alex try to sing on the show for the very first time.  Helping them through this traumatizing experience are musical improv experts and hosts of Vamp at MCL, Keenan Camp and Brandon Price.  We listen as a weather man confesses his forbidden love of thundersnow, see why God is the best wingman on heaven and Earth, and get banned from a very important, not funny museum.

Nico Carter and Brandon Shockney

We’re back! After two long months without being extremely stupid, we get it all out of our systems with two of our dear friends of the show, Nico Carter and Brandon Shockney! We discuss an argument Alex got into at a Korean spa parking lot, hear an incredible British accent from Nico, and give advice to a young woman who has adopted Japanese culture as her own.

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.
