Carrying over from our previous Muppet Show discussion, this week we start by discussing: What era-appropriate guests did the classic Muppet Show miss? We then finish our TV Book Club discussion of the Apple TV+ show Ted Lasso (specifically episodes 8, 9, and 10). Do note that this episode was recorded before the trailer for season 2 dropped; it starts on July 23!

If you could vacation in an as-seen-on-TV locale, where would you go? This is the vital question we begin with on this week’s show, before diving into episodes 5, 6, and 7 of the Apple TV+ series Ted Lasso.

Wocka wocka it's The Muppet Show! After a rousing discussion of which Muppets we most strongly identify with, we talk about the glorious original Muppet Show. This includes questions such as: what modern day celebrity do we wish were on the 70s Muppet Show? Why is Gonzo like that? And, is Scooter's whole deal really nepotism?

Hello, friends! Today's episode touches briefly on the state of children's television presently (and ergo features some exceptionally cute anecdotes about Kathryn's children) and then moves on to discuss episodes 2, 3, and 4 of Ted Lasso. Whomst does Andrew liken to a "more fuckable Anton Ego"? You'll have to listen to find out.
