G’day, mates! In this rousing episode, the Buddies drink a kombucha concoction as Mike recounts his bizarre emergency two-week trip down under to Australia, complete with ridiculous stories from the natives, goofy observations and a plethora of bad luck.
Plus: The confusion of walking on the left side! The taste of kangaroo flesh! Drunken Australianisms!
The Buddies (well, S’mike, specifically) birth an outstanding new drink, the “Dead Rodent.” “Dr. Strange” gets further critiqued, and then the Buddies go down a deep, deep hole about Mike Birbiglia’s outstanding film “Don’t Think Twice.”
Long story short, a comedy about an improv troupe fucked Mike up but good!
Also: Dissecting the New York City improv scene! Chinese powdered Jesus! Comedic comedy!
Battling a ghost in the machine, the Buddies are joined by special guest and fellow board game geek Joshua Lippincott. Drinks are shared, pizza is ordered, and then things get really, really deep. This, THIS, is the danger of having Josh Lippincott on your podcast!
Also: The moral correctness of dick pics in the modern age! Diagnostic troubleshooting in everyday life! Millennials!
The Buddies drink Mike’s Hendrick’s Gin “health tonics” as they submit themselves to the ultimate test of marital trust: They gave each of their wives $20 and told them to buy the weirdest food they could find, and then the Buddies agreed to eat a little of everything.
No guarantees on Mike n’ S’mike’s continued survival here, folks!
Plus: The Hu’watch 2 looks like poo! Legion love! And Jello!
