Season 7, Episode 26: Make it Look Like an Accident

This episode overwhelms the Listener with "Heaving Bosoms"—the lusty metafictional saga continues with parts 3, 4, and 5, and you can't get more bosomy than that. The jinks will be high ones. But there's more. We hear the first time from "Nadia Verminskova," a cockroach/spy who slipped into the White House in a bucket of fried chicken and therefore knows Precisely What Is Going On. Then, in a new and handsomely dramatized public service announcement, "The Less You Ignore," a professional Finn

S7E25 Lunch for Dogs

Whilst pondering the various ways that dogs get their lunch while we're at work, the studio is invaded by writers and cast members Ann Porter and Nancy Roth, who demand equal treatment for their interests, no matter how narrow. Sketch-wise, we return to the wintry moor of "Heaving Bosoms" for its second episode, to find Elspeth Eveready delivered into the hands of a Crone. Then it's "Gardening with Melania," for all of you who wonder where the President of the New America gets all that junk food

Season 7, Episode 24: The Perfect Catheter

Answering calls from the medical industry, Tony and Kevin discuss the ins and outs of catheters, finally managing to squeeze in a few remarks about what would constitute the "perfect" catheter—the one that comes naturally with the body. Then, it's on to the first of a multi-part Gothic Romance series, "Heaving Bosoms." The heroine, Elspeth Eveready, fights a two-sided campaign—pursuing true love with Lord Grantley Ridgely and quarreling with the writer about her tardiness in taking her to a

Season 7, Episode 23: We Can Always Fall Back on Poverty

Since Tony and Kevin quit their day jobs to put all their effort into Season 7 of "Men in Charge," they've been forced to do today's show from the Lower Heights Colosseum, right after Monster Truck Mayhem and just before this year's "Lower Heights Has Talent?" competition. As usual, Evangeline has the pre-opened snacks and warm cans of Sprite (TM), and random members of the audience are interviewed.

Chronicles of the Schmalkaldic League 1&2: Omnibus Edition

It's unadulterated adventure with just a touch of in-and-out-going-cow-summoner in this nail-biting adventure of the Schmalkaldic League, which combines our Season 7 Episodes 20 and 22 into an omnibus edition! Enjoy with a big flagon of sheep's milk!

Season 7, Episode 22: Chronicles of the Schmalkaldic League 2

The stunning and only partly incomprehensible conclusion to "Artificial Habsburgs"! The Habsburg-punk Schmalkaldic League, who are spies, inventors and scapegraces of an alternative Protestant Reformation face Count Rudolf, Gaylord the Dalmatian Pinscher, and Emperor Charles V's chief Moral Enforcer, Count Crimsyn. Will the Rostock Occult-Eels save our heroes? Or--if worse comes to worse--will they be forced into ballroom dancing?

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,
