Episode III "The Revenge of the 'Stache" gets off an running with Mike introducing Billy to a new English slang word, "Bumflufferies." The word comes from the great British Crime flick, Sexy Beast, starring Ben Kingsley, Ray Winstone and Ian McShane. (a must watch if you haven't seen it)
Mike slept through his alarm Tuesday morning and they talk about how waking up late for work is one of the worst, panic-inducing feelings you can experience.
Mike's phone was stolen, and he had to change every password he has in the world... which leads the guys into the topic of internet passwords, account hacking and the mobile phone security in general is discussed.
With Thanksgiving only days away Billy shares his plans and family traditions around the holiday... as well as his girlfriend's enthusiasm for making Halloween costumes.
And with every Thanksgiving comes Black Friday... Neither Mike nor Billy are fans but Billy has some real hatred towards this national shopping day.
Mike having worked security for years used to have a slightly different outlook on Black Friday, and he shares a couple "war stories" from the days he spent chasing down junkie shoplifters.
They wrap up on a topical note, talking about how the Twinkee craze of the last week could be one of the greatest marketing cons ever!
All that and much more A.D.D. radio shenanigans...

Episode #2 starts with Mike & Billy discussing a car accident that happened outside the studio moments before they sat down to record. Apparently Billy was looking to fill his Karma quota for the month by checking on the driver and bringing him into the station until the police arrived.
Mike was in a wedding over the weekend and is running down the shenanigans that occurred. He also explains how dealing with Hangover Recovery has changed as he's gotten older, "Gronk spiking" a flask during the wedding party's introduction, and getting locked out of his hotel room... which leads them into talking about hotels in general and the aggravation of travel. In particular the trouble with trying to cross the Canadian border when visiting Montreal.
Mike and Billy then get into TV & Movie talks... covering South Park and the work ethic of the creators, as shown in the documentary 6 Days To Air.
Billy made the claim that "Wilfred is a perfect show" and Mike wants him to clarify that statement. Which takes them in to a discussion about how superior the shows of FX are when compared to what the networks are putting out.
All that and so much more... Enjoy!
