Most Recent Episodes

Season 7, Episode 21: Underneath the Wheel

Kevin and Tony are very much underneath the wheel in this episode, which was almost all written by "Ann Porter," artist from "Sandpoint." Our so-called "Men" in "Charge" feel very much thrust aside and urge the Listener to at least feign sympathy. The first segment, "Contemporary Naming Practice," is a hard-hitting piece of Lower Heights journalism, featuring an Onomastic professor who wants contemporary names to reflect our jobs, the way Cooper, Smith, and Zimmerman used to. But why are there

Season 7, Episode 20: Chronicles of the Schmalkaldic League 1

It takes a full episode to tell the adventures of the Habsburg-punk Schmalkaldic League, a fifteenth century coterie of spies, inventors and scapegraces. Today's episode is "Artifical Habsburgs!" and is alternately hilarious, chilling and imaginative. Will the League discover the secrets of Count Rudolf and the Dortmundstadt Fabrikwerke? Or will Gaylord the Dalmatian pinscher have them for breakfast? Tune in and find out!

Season 7, Episode 19: The All-Ann Episode

Who is the mysterious "Ann" of the episode title, and why has she taken an entire episode for herself? Well, only Tony and Kevin's various failures can say, which they do and will. In any case, "Ann Porter," an artist (from "Sandpoint," "Idaho" (not real places, we understand)) all by herself drives long, scriptish knives into the chilly heart of Vichy America. First up is a word from "Javanka," a pale, off-white coffee from Ivanka and Jared Trump. Next is "Bad Advice" columnist Lydia Loveless,

Season 7, Episode 18: Rocket to the Future! Part One, chapter 6

Hopefully the listener has recovered from the devastating effect of not one, but two clip shows in a row detailing the adventures of the crew of the Vanguard, an Earth Space Force Rocket, in the space-age future year of 1992. Crazed galactic encyclopedia salesmen, Rocketmen from Planet B, venereal time warps, and even six month performance reviews have not been enough to staunch the valiant Vanguard crew. But now they're meeting up with the crew of the rocket Knausgaard, and each crew member has

Season 7, Episode 17: Not Another "Clip Show" Clip Show

Years ago, "Men in Charge" invited you into the space age future of 1991 with the legendary "Rocket to the Future," Part One. Tony and Kevin recap episodes 3 through 5 of this madcap space opera in preparation for a new adventure airing as Episode 18 of this season.

Season 7, Episode 16: The "Clip Show" Clip Show

Years ago, "Men in Charge" invited you into the space age future of 1991 with the legendary "Rocket to the Future," Part One. Tony and Kevin recap episodes 1 through 3 of this madcap space opera in preparation for a new adventure airing as Episode 18 of this season.

Season 7, Episode 15: Kid Gupta!

Kid Gupta, the itinerant Hindu god of the seventeenth rank who was the central antagonist of Men in Charge's famous and brilliant fourth season, returns to plague Tony and Kevin.

Season 7, Episode 14: Eaux de Hose

Though a lot of competing shows wanted "Eaux de Hose" as an episode, it fell to Men in Charge to craft an episode around it. "Eaux," which in French means "eaux," is what flows through hoses, and Tony and Kevin begin the show with stories about they had to drink from hoses and lead pipes when they were younger. Then it's off to another adventure with presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner: exploring his man cave with German film documentarian Greta von Volkenstein-Gomez, who taunts him about his

Season 7, Episode 13: My First Cult

Have you fond memories of your first cult? Was it Scientology? Libertarianism? Or perhaps a slavish devotion to the forces of Big Library? Kevin and Tony reminiscence about wearing hair shirts and being given pamphlets during particularly drunken Earth Day celebrations. They invite you to share your own First Cult story on your blog (which they'll never read). After the hosts get "de-programmed," it's time for "Wiltshire Girl's Academy for the Privileged," in which Deborah recalls her salad days

Season 7, Episode 12: All Women are Now On Report

Listener, you'll be as incensed as Kevin and Tony were to learn that the opening of the show was taken over by the cruel banter of Liz and Neesha. These young women used their special "star" status as cast members to deride and abuse Tony and Kevin for their weaknesses in personality and mind. If our Men in Charge weren't so easily intimidated, they'd strike back in some way, maybe. Anyway, after running our boys through a gauntlet of ridicule, Neesha and Liz at last discuss today's segments.
