High school can be rough, even in prehistory. Luckily, teenagers can always be counted on to make horrible decisions — even if they’re teen puppet dinosaurs! Join Andrew and Chelsea for a crash course in dinosaur sexual and gender relations as they grapple with body dysmorphia, steroid abuse, and Spike’s accent.
Sometimes, Very Special Episodes are not about drugs, or bigotry, or teen sex. Sometimes, they’re about cross-promotion and visits from Very Special Guests. It’s important that you know which kind of VSE you’re going into when you sit down to watch. Otherwise, you might end up waiting constantly for something bad to happen in your own one-man production of “Waiting for Soleil (Moon Frye).” Join a very nostalgic Chelsea and a much-less nostalgic Andrew as they plunge deep into the secret world of a teen witch and her mortal friends and family. Thunderclap!

Exactly whom are we keeping He-Man’s secret identity secret FROM? Who lives in Castle Greyskull besides 8 action figures? We wish the answers to these questions were simply distilled, but they just aren’t, so let’s hop on our Battlecats and hunt for these holiday answers together.
Is My So-Called Life the definitive voice of its generation, a mopey soap for teens, or something else entirely? Chelsea and Andrew have very different opinions.

Do the Chases believe in God? Why is Brian Krackow so pissy at the holidays? Won’t someone feed Rickie — he looks so cold!

The stakes are high and the sentences are long here in Pyramid Corners, Oklahoma. Join Chelsea, Andrew, and first-ever podcast guest Noel, as they ride the roller coaster of a teenage heartbreak-induced makeover. Will Dorothy Jane find love easier to navigate as a blond?

When the sun comes up, we will discuss all.
If you drop kick your jacket when you come through the door, does no one “care,” “stare,” or “glare”? This is just one of the many delicious mysteries of MR.

How many famous people has Mr. Belvedere actually worked for? And did Heather ever manage to pass her summer school class?? The answers to some of these questions will be answered; others are lost to time. Join us, won’t you? We promise not to stare or glare.
The Brady Bunch are in the (sanitized, Euro-American) Thanksgiving spirit! Join Chelsea and Andrew as they wade through a swamp of insensitivity, problematic nomenclature, revisionist history, and groovy slang to get to the heart of the Thanksgiving holiday itself: sight gags.
