In Search Of … Animal ESP and Empathetic Yogurt with Leonard Nimoy

Meet Leonard. He’s an actor whose popular TV show has been cancelled and the movie revival of that show has yet to begin. You might say he’s In Search Of … employment.

What he finds is the opportunity to make 150 episodes of a show devoted to the exploration of unsolved mysteries and things that defy explanation.

Things like “psy trailing” where a family projects their location to their dog Bobby when they leave him at a rest stop 2,000 miles from home.

Things like a fighting fish so strong willed he defies the odds of probability.  

Things like a plant photographer who has definitely ingested some plants.

Things like a man hooking up yogurt to a lie detector to gauge the yogurt’s empathy.

And if you think Leonard Nimoy is any help on getting through all of this, he’s far too busy dressing and posing like a deconstructed Superman and slinging junk science to make this go down any easier.

Thrill as we have out of body experiences with a cat named Jill, listen to an old lady who hates rock music slowly recite a long list of plants, and use sophisticated machines and our mind’s inner eye to prove ... absolutely nothing.

Is there an animal psychic involved?

You bet there is!

We’re suffering through and reporting back on two episodes of In Search Of … devoted to Extra Sensory Perception. They’re free to watch on YouTube if you really want to do that to yourself.  Other Voices and Animal ESP

Otherworldly Amor

Meet Shauna and Josh. First came love, then came marriage, then came the BS-filled documentary about their extraterrestrial, transdimensional, paranormal experiences. 

Valentine’s Day is approaching and love is in the air. So are stars, satellites, and streetlights, but for the purposes of this documentary, let’s call all of those things “UFOs.”

What starts as the premise of an X-Files episode devolves quickly as Shauna explains how red airplane lights cause ovarian cysts and Josh is fascinated by something the rest of us would call sleeping.

Thrill as we lose time, assume defenseless positions, stare at footage of out of focus streetlights, and explain how restaurants work to inefficient interdimensional beings. 

Is this proof of a vast extraterrestrial conspiracy designed to reduce the commute time of two Limp Bizkit fans from Michigan?

Have we witnessed the ultimate transdimensional heist for Chinese leftovers?

Are there ETs on Earth and do they just want to tuck us in, turn off the lights, and make sure our laptops don’t fall off the bed?

One thing’s for certain: The BS is coming from INSIDE THE HOUSE!

We’re suffering through and reporting back on Otherworldly Amor, available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.

Okie Noodling (Hand Fishing for Catfish in Oklahoma)

Meet Bradley. As a boy, his cousins from Oklahoma showed him the scars on their arms from fishing for catfish barehanded. In other words, they were Okie Noodlers. 

Fast forward many years and adult Bradley decides to revisit this fishing subculture. When he finally finds some people willing to fess up to this behavior, he’ll go on a journey that ultimately leads to him establishing the first ever noodling tournament.

Along the way, he'll introduce the viewer to a pantheon of men who you will be shocked to learn are about twenty years younger than they appear to be. It seem noodlin’ ages a man – and we say “man” because all of the women in this documentary may have been willing to try noodling once, but they weren’t dumb enough to ever come back.

Join us as we hassle snakes, treat wounds with duct tape, and accidentally noodle a beaver. We also learn how to take away a fish's free will, how to cheat at noodling, and discover that while some noodlers noodle nude, there also appear to be never-nude noodlers. 

We’re suffering through and reporting back on Okie Noodling, available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.

The Bigamist Bride: My Five Husbands

Meet Emily. Her hair is short, but her list of husbands is long.

When a slow news day in the UK leads to the creation of a documentary The Guardian, The Daily Mail, and the Daily Telegraph all rave as the best thing ever, Jaime and Dave have no choice but to check this out for themselves and discover firsthand that the British media is wrong. So. Very. Wrong.

Join us as we discuss the finer points of biganometry, ponder the raw undeniable machismo of train guards, and pitch “Bigammers,” our show that attempts to make this documentary watchable.

Featuring surprise appearances by William Shatner, Doctor Who, Baby Yoda, and Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Bigamy Cap™.

We’re suffering through and reporting back on The Bigamist Bride: My Five Husbands, available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.

Acrocats!

Meet Samantha. She’s a 40-something animal trainer determined to take her cats on the road and catch her big break, even if it costs her hundreds of thousands of dollars to get there.

According to her assistant Lynsi, a neat thing about Samantha is that she doesn’t think things all the way through, but then again, Lynsi also thought she was having a career crisis BEFORE she was living in a motorhome with a middle-aged woman trying to run a cat circus.

We’ll witness heavy flirting, discuss whether it’s okay for your boss to tell you your significant other is going to die and it’s going to be your fault (spoiler: It’s really, really not okay), and sympathize with the cat who tries to escape from the show and start a new life in Wisconsin.

Just when we think we might be watching the female version of a desperate person turning into The Joker, things shockingly turn around and end up being okay for Samantha. Maybe there’s a positive message somewhere in this mess after all, but we still maintain that cats are not an investment.

Featuring surprise appearances by Pauly Shore and Stephen Colbert.  This episode is not sponsored by Smirnoff, but it should be. 

We're suffering through and reporting back on Acrocats!, available to stream on Amazon Prime.

Grumpy Old Men at Christmas UK

Tis the season to be grumpy, at least according to a bunch of middle-aged British men and, for some reason, Elliott Gould.

From Arthur, who hates that Christmas happens every 365 days, to John, who hates that Margaret Thatcher didn’t hand-sign her Christmas cards, to the narrator, who hates Christmas cards and possibly his wife, we’re working through a laundry list of everything wrong with the holidays.

We’re buying last-minute presents at gas stations, holding carolers hostage, and standing up to the tyranny of Advent Calendars (and okay, we’re also standing up because the Queen is speaking).

Along the way, we’ll discuss fish for Christmas, determine whether Jaime is secretly a grumpy old man, and discover the lost Twin Peaks Christmas album.

It turns out Christmas in Britain may be a bit rubbish after all.  

Featuring guest appearances by Enrico Iglesias, Santa Claus, and the reanimated corpse of Winston Churchill.

We’re suffering through and reporting back on Grumpy Old Men at Christmas UK, available to stream for free on YouTube.

Skips Stones for Fudge

Meet Kurt and Russ, two middle-aged stone skippers jockeying for the Guinness World Record for most skips. 

Kurt has a good heart, but we still have some questions about that hole he’s digging in his yard, and he’s definitely not making it out of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory in one piece.

There’s also Max, the young stone skipping upstart, and his father Eric, a stone skipping competition announcer who doesn’t have a big vocabulary but does have the enthusiasm of someone announcing the Kentucky Derby.

Is this the next frontier of athleticism? Is stone skipping an ancient duck hunting technique? We don’t know, but Dave is getting flashbacks to discus throwing in junior high gym class and Jaime is reliving her Playstation glory days.  

Before it’s all said and done, we’ll hear a surprisingly good rendition of the national anthem, see a gross injury, and witness a new world record that will likely stand until the robot overlords take over all sports.

No fudge was harmed, consumed, or even really seen in this documentary.

We’re suffering through and reporting back on Skips Stones for Fudge, available to stream on Amazon Prime.

Oh My God! It’s Harrod Blank!

Meet Harrod Blank. He’s a tall, attractive young man with a good head of hair, and within five minutes of knowing him you probably won’t be surprised to learn that as a child he spent more time with chickens than with people. 

Harrod’s devoted his life to making and celebrating art cars, which is all fine and good, but what this documentary unintentionally celebrates is Harrod’s love life.

Thrill as Harrod falls for what seems to be the first non-chicken, non-mom female he meets, then SUCCESSFULLY woos her with love poems about maggots and decaying fish!

Chill as you learn Harrod’s opening move with women is to show them a dead cat!

Question everything you thought you knew about life when you learn that even when Harrod was literally living in a child’s playhouse in someone’s yard, he STILL managed to have a live-in girlfriend, at least until winter came around. 

Along the way, we’ll come to realize there are some things about Harrod as an artist that we kind of admire. We even start to think it’s almost too bad he isn’t in a better movie than this… but then Harrod’s back to clucking like a chicken again. 

Speaking of our feathered friends, we may have discovered a unified theory of chickens, but rest assured. Despite Jaime’s best efforts, we are NOT re-naming this podcast “Super Chicken Stories.”

We're suffering through and reporting back on Oh My God, It’s Harrod Blank, available to stream on Amazon Prime.

My Monkey Baby

Someone has taken their love of monkeys too far!

Halloween might be over, but on this episode we find ourselves stuck in what feels like a carnival funhouse filled with people who insist their monkeys are their literal children. 

Join us as we travel across some of our least favorite flyover states to meet Silly Willy, Butters, and Jessica Marie (all three of those are monkeys, in case you were unsure). 

Along the way we'll see monkeys thrown out of restaurants, discover something worse than texting while driving, and, because you can't watch a documentary like this without a pet psychic showing up at some point, we'll discuss the moment that had Dave sitting on his hands to keep himself from throwing his monitor out the window.

All narrated by a Mary Poppins soundalike who is fresh out of spoonfuls of sugar and wants some gosh darn answers. 

Featuring Parker Posey and the world's least educational animal show.

We’re watching My Monkey Baby, available to stream for free on Amazon Prime.

The Pantry Ghost Documentary

It’s the spookiest time of the year and only one documentary could make us wonder, “Is that a smudge on my iPad or a ghost in that guy’s kitchen?”

Meet Mabel, a ghost so non-descript we’re surprised she even has a name. She is mysteriously the same height and build as the daughter of the guy whose house she’s haunting. We also think her dad might be Channing Tatum in disguise. Where's Scooby Doo when we need him?

Mabel’s absolute favorite thing is haunting pantries at precisely 12:34 a.m., but when the pantry door comes off, Mabel is released into the house and all hell breaks loose!

A light will turn off!

A ball will bounce down the stairs!

Hair. Will. Be. Pulled!

Penny, the medium from central casting, sums it up best: “Oh, no.”

Featuring guest appearances by Patrick Stewart, Hamper Ghost, Feist, and a squatter named John2.

We’re watching The Pantry Ghost Documentary, available to stream for free on Amazon Prime.
