episode 98 - homecoming

She's back! Stephanie Williams continues her podcast tour. Also, Beyonce. Sterling, Kortney and Stephanie are just hanging out this episode.

Sterling, Kortney and Neysha discuss the after-effects of watching Jordan Peele's Us, the rush to buy tickets for Avengers: Endgame and re-order and review Love, Death + Robots without spoilers. Sterling introduces a new term, actually two: "night water" and "mouth feel." Later, Kortney delivers some mind-blowing facts about space and Sterling follows up with the Fermi Paradox. Extra bits from this episode will be found on Patreon. To get tickets for Chris Clark go to bit.ly/GMFMComedy. Follow Neysha on Twitter @La_Ney_sha

Sterling just received Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse on Blu-ray and is properly geeked out about it. He tries to convince Kortney to let a radioactive spider bite her or at least watch the movie with her. Later, Sterling talks about Christine Houston, creator of 227 and a story of the birth of twin ducks. Kortney and Sterling ponder the shape of a possibly expanding universe and then dive into a full-on discussion of Captain Marvel.

An exhausted Sterling and Kortney throw the regular format out of the window and discuss their pet peeves, including people who still wish you a happy New Year in March. March 11th to be specific. 

Sterling and Kortney welcome LaBlaq to this special Black History themed episode. There is some talk of new galaxies being discovered and moon phases, but mostly historical and monumental Black figures like Mae Jemison, Gerald Lawson and the new Netflix documentary The Two Killings of Sam Cooke. LaBlaq brings a detailed report on the Tulsa Riots which you can hear on Patreon, which includes an extended aftershow conversation about the topic and how we can move forward knowing what we know. Lastly, Sterling has an exciting announcement!

Sterling and Kortney welcome special guest and certified blerd Connie (@ConStar24) to nerd out about Doctor Who and just how many times she's been blessed to see Hamilton. Live. In person. In NYC. We're not jealous. Connie and Sterling relive the East Coast version of Polar Vortex, whilst Kortney enjoys warmer weather and debates the validity of climate change. Sterling reviews the film "The Hurricane Heist" and later salutes Candice Payne.

An official Oscar's special isn't set yet but you can make your predictions here: bit.ly/INDOscars2019 and winners will be announced on episode 95!

Cold open: Rosa Parks. Happy 106th!

Sterling goes to PodCon 2 and visits the beautiful city of Seattle! He recounts his adventures to Kortney and later has a seemingly random chat about the Speed Racer movie and whether or not it's a bad movie based on a previous tweet.

(Links to many of the sites and podcasts Sterling mentioned will be updated here later!)

Sterling and Kortney start the new year discussing a handful of the new movies they saw at the end of last year, including Bird Box, Aquaman and Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse. Later, BHF features Gladys West, winter fun in Sheboygan and the invasion of stink bugs. The Spookum Zone has a brand new theme (and a spooky sad story as well).

Disclaimer: Sterling sounds a bit weird as he was experimenting with his Bluetooth headset. He will not be using it again unless he has a good reason to and wanted you all to know that's why he sounds weird.

For those curious, the cold open is a viral video from Twitter from last year that brings Kortney and Sterling much joy. Tweet them if you'd like to see it, because you have to.

In this special (and experimental) holiday episode, Sterling invites you to dinner with his family. Meet his parents (again) sister, brother-in-law and a few others around the table as they enjoy their Thanksgiving meal. The young'n you will hear the most musings from is that of Sterling's nephew Eli. (This episode was intended to be released the week of Christmas)

For those concerned, everyone involved is aware and agreed to be recorded. But that didn't stop anyone from being themselves nor are they being "extra" because of it. And it has been edited for time.
