Ep.62 – Relationships 101: This Will Be on the Final

You're going to want to take notes.

You’re going to want to take notes.


We’re back from Spring Break and Paris and The Business, LLC are here to tutor us through a college-level relationship model sent in to us from listener Mark Hayashi.

We compare our experiences with those featured in Knapp’s Relationship Model, and get into the ways people come together, maintain, and come apart. Hold on, because Dr. Knapp’s theories are “Theo-radical!”

We also talk at length about grad school, Destiny, Starbucks fixing racism, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the infamous Batgirl variant cover.

Trigger Warning: Dungeons also.

My Fair Andrew has a disappointing time on OKC (really, it happens live on the recording) but we’re here to learn from the struggle. I also answer questions from podcast listener Siegecall about his OKC profile.

This is bullshit.

This is bullshit.

Tables get flipped over the mistrust of women, people stealing your table flips, why scientists can’t communicate, and time-wasting differential diagnoses.

Ep.61 – The Infidelity Episode: Once Bitten Twice Geek

At least she didn't litter when she threw away your love

At least she didn’t litter when she threw away your love


What happens when you ask the internet to share personal stories about infidelity with you? A 3 hour and 15 minute podcast, that’s what. But look at it this way, you’ve got three weeks to listen to it while we go on our cycle break.

Sean Ryan of Alpha Counter invites us into his studio to talk about one of the most negative sides to dating and relationships: cheating.

Emails and interviews came pouring in from you, the much-loved listeners, and in addition to some emails (a couple of them from fellow #PodPals) we got five interviews from all sides of the spectrum: Bill, Pete, and Erin are straight-up cheated on, while Amy and Dandy – well, it’s more complicated. We thank them profusely for coming forward and sharing their personal stories. We truly have the best listeners in the world!

In more faithful news, we geek out over Destiny, and a game called Starwhal where you can be a narwhal in an afro, dressed in a sushi costume, piercing the hearts of your fellow narwhals IN SPACE!

We check in with My Fair Andrew for reports from his fourth task and assign his fifth – always a delight!

Sadly, the 24-hour news stations had to take a break from reporting about llamas in blue/black or white/gold dresses to deliver the sad news that Leonard Nimoy passed away on Friday, February 27th at the age of 83. He was beloved, lived long and prospered, and his talents will live on forever.

Tables get up-ended over guys who respond to regular non-flirty question with confirmation that they have a girlfriend/wife/partner, and Sean wants you to give up he ghost on any of your comic movies ever being like it was, “Well, in the comic…”

See you back on March 23rd for another round of Mating Habits – don’t go cheating on us with any other nerdy relationship podcasts. We’ll find out!
