Quick Snaps is back!  Wait, we've just been informed that it never left.  It's been going this whole time.  Who knew?  Regardless, football is more or less back, which lends an air of legitimacy to Quick Snaps.  And that's what comedians care most about.  Legitimacy.  Also wacky names.  It's a subject that transcends culture.  Actually, that's often the problem.  It's difficult to ensure your child's nam...

It's time to ignite your career.  No, not by going to college.  There are better ways.  The best one is probably to get a job you're actually good at.  Sounds pretty obvious, right?  Well, as it turns out it's actually kind of hard to determine your strengths without outside help.  So figure that out, then get a job.  Or get lucky and happen upon a job you're good at.  That's also a good route.  In fact, we reco...

Peter Borne joins us in studio to talk about building the only mobile floating recording studio in the world, the halcyon days of working at KQ, recording commercials with Mick Sterling (who also happens to be in studio).? It's a rollicking conversation that covers boating, music, the importance of faith, and KQRS. He also happens to mention recreating famous cars from the 60's such as the bat mobile. The show flies by and ...

People are too sensitive these days.  That's why you have to insult them.  Jokingly, of course.  If you do it enough, they'll become desensitized and transform into paragons of emotional stability.  That's the theory, anyway.  If you'd like to test that theory, why not head over to harshables.com where you can purchase some joke insults of your own.  It's easier than writing them.  And believe me, most people ca...

Everyone and everything is toxic.  You can't even take a simple pill without getting cancer, and don't even think about trying to use social media.  You know what isn't toxic?  Space.  There's literally nothing there.  Well, except for unmitigated solar radiation which will sear your skin.  Just wear layers and you'll be fine.  It's worth it, because in space, no one can hear you scream at other losers on so...

When you think Nexium, what do you think?  If it's the antacid, you're one of the lucky ones, because the alternative is a sex trafficking cult.  You don't want to be familiar with those.  Well, unless you're a double agent, of course.  Jessica started off thinking NXIVM, under the guise of a business success program, would help her succeed.  Once she found out the truth, she got to work.  Today, the guy who founded...

It's often very difficult to understand foreign accents.  Even if you both grew up speaking the same language, the accent alone can make it impossible to communicate.  Even harder is when you're under a conservatorship and have to sign an NDA before you say anything.  That one is significantly rarer, thankfully.  The trick is to not become rich and famous.  It's easier than it sounds.

There's a massive conspiracy afoot.  It's a conspiracy to make sure everyone is wearing really short shorts.  You've heard of modesty laws.  Right now it only applies to European beach handball, but soon they'll be coming for you if your shorts end too close to your knee.  Probably.

Emotional pain can be worse than physical pain.? For example, being stung by a wasp sucks, but you get over it.? It may take a few days and you may make a podcast out of it, but it heals.? When your team loses, though, sometimes you're scarred for life.? Just ask Costaki.? Or any Minnesotan. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

On The Family, we're always doing the bare minimum.? Wait, let me rephrase that.? Minimalism is good, you see.? Buying less stuff, getting rid of stuff you don't need, being happy with less.? That kind of thing.? As a podcast, our content takes up no space and doesn't actually physically exist, so we're already doing our part.??

Bobby ain't studdin' ya.? Don't know what that means?? Then you're too young for this episode.? Unfortunately "too young" in this case means under the age of like 70, because the geniuses in the music industry decided to kill off the R&B genre decades ago along with the culture that came with it.? Still, rules are rules.? Septuagenarians and up only.? If your fake mustache is convincing enough we may mak...

Comedy is coming back, and the comedians that dole it out are coming with it.  Only the really good ones though.  It's more of a place of honor that way.  As such, that means Mike has joined the legendary Comedy Pantheon along with Costaki.  It's just those two for now.  Who will be worthy of position number three?  No, seriously, we have no idea.

Mental health is a serious issue.  It has been for thousands of years, although until quite recently it was generally blamed on an excess of sea serpents or whatever.  We've made a lot of progress, but we still have a long way to go.  And not just when it comes to treatment.  Conversation and understanding help a lot, and both of them are severely lacking.  Until today, that is.  It's 40 solid minutes of pure information.  ...

Everyone loves a good burger.  Even vegetarians are eating burgers these days, as long as they're made out of lentils or whatever.  Hey, it's better than it sounds.  The face of the modern burger, however, has changed.  Today we demand more than a slice of cheese.  As such, "plain ol' burger" places are struggling unless they're already so situated that they can't possibly fail.  McDonald's and Burge...

Politicians.  We don't like them.  We especially don't like the ones that threaten to burn down small neighborhoods to coerce them.  No, we're not talking about Rome 2000 years ago or a bad guy in a cartoon.  We're talking about Minnesota last year.  They voted him into office after that, of course.  The current forecast states that the Minnesota Nice stereotype will be soon replaced with Minnesota Oblivious.  After...

We've discovered the secret to a low stress life.  It's the result of decades of data collection and a supercomputer processing the information using a complex algorithm.  Are you ready?  Here it is: crime is bad.  That may sound strange, but it's the truth.  It turns out that you want to avoid crime and criminals.  Second is football.  Don't look up your team's crap factor.  You'll only be disappointed.

Space.  The final frontier.  For aliens, I mean.  Not for us.  We'll be stuck here forever.  That's why the idea of being visited by aliens is so interesting.  It's the last hope most of us have for contact with the rest of the universe.  Of course, depending on who you ask we've had contact for hundreds, maybe thousands of years.  The truth is out there.  And it's also in Martin's book.

  • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
