Disney continues its crusade to protect your fragile psyche from seeing offensive stereotypes.  Some have noted that they're being perhaps too lenient with their definition of "offensive".  It's not hurting them any.  Word is they're cruising around in $330,000 Rolls Royce SUVs.  And apparently if you steal a celebrity's dog, you could be too.

Petroleum.  It's a good thing.  Maybe we're burning too much of it, but basically everything in the world is made of and/or runs on it.  It would be a little difficult to suddenly abolish it.  Then again, a year ago we would've told you that going to Disney World without massive crowds ruining everything is impossible, so you never really know what the future holds.

How do you become backable?  If you could answer that question, you'd be a millionaire.  Perhaps you already are.  For the rest of us, we're still working on the acquiring currency stage.  Suneel was rejected multiple times before someone took a chance on his idea, and his experience is not a unique one.  Not content to just turn his experience into profit, he also turned it into a learning experience.  Why do you get rejec...

Where you rather be than the real world right now?  That's right: the Disney universe.  Well, you can't go there.  It's not real.  What you can do is go to Disney World and use your imagination.  Disney Land?  Nope, sorry.  Head to Florida. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

America is thoroughly divided, and this division is almost entirely along race lines.  If you've been paying any attention at all, this is not news to you.  What might be news is knowing which race you belong to.  It's not about skin color.  It's about whether you're capable of planning for the future, whether you're confident, or who you voted for.  If this makes no sense to you, you're in good company.

Cassie took a trip recently.  A trip to Texas.  You probably already know where this is going.  To say she had bad luck would be something of an understatement.  Lots of people are having a bad time, though, and not just in Texas.  Mike Lindell is being sued for 1.3 billion dollars, which one could argue is a bit excessive.  Costaki, on the other hand, is getting back on the road and he's got a suitcase full of anaphylaxis joke...

You've heard of the opiate epidemic.  Have you heard of Stan Li?  No, not Stan Lee.  Dr. Stan Li was one of the foremost pill pushers in the country, doling out opiates to over 70 "patients" per day.  If you're thinking that number seems a little high, you're right.  The courts also thought so, which is why he went to prison in 2014.  While Dr. Li is no longer alive, the legacy he left behind certainly is. BAD ...

First we go down the cultural road with Kenneth L. Woodward and play guitar like Bob Dylan with guest Richard F. Thomas then end our trip with the very funny Jeff Allen. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Walser automotive group's Marketing Director Kate Lumsden joins us in the studio. Kate has apparently been car crazy her whole life, drawing cars during school as a little girl. With a degree in graphic design, she happened to answer a blind employment ad and wound up working for the Morries automotive group. She starts to pick on her husband's lifted and loud 20 year old Ram before slips up and reveals she a Wrangler drive...

The world's gone mad.  Vitriol online.  News media you can't trust.  Species going extinct.  Terrible music, and that one's according to Don McLean.  And if anyone knows music, it's him.  Not that there's not good stuff out there.  It's just nothing like it was years ago, when songwriters were musician-poets by rule rather than exception.

Need to move?  That sucks.  It's cold as hell outside.  Still, sometimes it has to be done.  That's when you call AAA Movers.  Odds are you've seen their logo, given they have 53 trucks with it on them.  And as a bonus, John grew up in North Minneapolis, so he's met all the insane wrestlers Tom knew.  That doesn't really affect the business, it's just that people like wrestlers.

When you hear the word "psychic", what do you think?  It seems to be a relatively even split between die-hard skeptics and die-hard believers, with a small subset of people who think about how Psychic beats Fighting and Poison.  Angela is a 20 year psychic herself, and she'll tell you that there are a lot of phonies out there.  No word yet on how to tell the fake from the real.  I'm sure it would help if you were ps...

World War 2 was a lot of things.  "Fun" is not one of them.  Rescue missions were commonplace, extremely dangerous, and rarely successful.  Still, the 4th Rescue Squadron alone saved over 500 lives, and Chris has put together a hybrid film/documentary chronicling their experience.  If you're wondering what that means, it means it's a documentary when it can be and a scripted film when it can't.  For example, it&...

Bitcoin continues to soar, which is making some people highly optimistic.  Others, less so.  It's not a coincidence that bitcoin and bubble both start with B.  Well, maybe it is.  If you're extremely non-risk averse, go ahead and invest.  Otherwise, start buying windmill turbine de-icer.  Next year you'll make a killing selling it to states who forget that water tends to freeze when it gets cold.

People are strange, and not just when you're a stranger.  Presidents, doubly so.  Does it take a weirdo to become president, or does becoming president make you a weirdo?  We may never know.  We will, however, know exactly what's weird about all of them after Hal's through with them.

Who loves to sin?  All humans.  But especially certain humans, at least according to Wallethub (whatever that is).  Sin appears to be relatively evenly spread throughout the country.  The #1 place for it will not surprise you.  Being bad at maintaining wind turbines is not technically a sin, but if it was, Texas would definitely be at the top.

Well, it's the coldest week of the winter so it's a perfect time to talk boats with Dan Chesky from Dan's Southside Marine. We explain to Tom that it's called 'Dock Sailing' not 'Deck sailing. Dan discuses Mercury's new 600 HP V12 outboard that costs 80,000 dollars and can drink three gallons of gas per mile. Tracy Morgan shows up at the end of the show.

Nearly every young boy dreams of being a musician.  Playing the guitar in front of a bunch of adoring fans, being on the road, making millions.  What they don't think about is the isolation, the toll it takes on your body, and the fact that never being able to put down roots means you never have a home.  It takes a certain type of person to be able to perform the balancing act that is the rock n' roll lifestyle.  Brian is o...

Aunt Jemima is no more.  Or maybe she is?  Apparently they still talk about her on the box, which seems strange if she's such an offensive stereotype that needed to be eradicated.  Makes you wonder if it's actually about money and nothing else.  Kind of like politicians.  They're greedy, you know.  It comes up every so often.
