The three amigos are back together this week making each other laugh and somehow the female perspective is brought up. But things start off a little rocky as Gustav has just had to fix Ty’s mic stand which leaves Gus distracted and the normal show introductions are forgotten, so if you are new to the podcast and don’t know who is who by voice: Ty is the handsome sounding one, Gustav is the one that sounds like a hick and Heavy is the one and only.
Who knew three old men were so infatuated with blankets? But once again we stumble into afghan and blanket talk. But that doesn’t last long as we dip our toes into the seventies version of Partial Recall’s world and talk about What’s Happening and the sequel What’s Happening Now? for a bit. The Doobie Brothers episode always stands out.
Gus turns into a grammar hawk as he belittles people for misusing words and the guys share their pet peeves about people misusing words or making new words up (the sense of irony isn’t lost, but we blow right through it.)
In m0re old man news, the guys complain about recent updates to the classic board game of Monopoly.
The Hoyt Axton thread continues as Gus falsely attributes a songwriting credit to Hoyt, but it all works out because he’s wrong and we get a Michael Martin Murphy fun fact.
Ty brings another field report from his Rangers spring training trip, but this time it is about disparity in attractiveness between the male and female in couples he observed. He wants everyone to keep an eye out for it and send in their own observations. And that’s when Heavy offers the female perspective.
Then an email from Fake Bailey Jay brings in more female perspective as she asks about female comedians. Both Gus and Fake Bailey Jay have discussed this at length in real life and both of them love comedic actress Amy Sedaris, but Fake Bailey Jay knew she was lighting a fuse with this email.
After ranting about female comics, the guys turn their sights on female musicians where talent and attractiveness collide. The female perspective is abandoned as eventually the three just turn into grunting cavemen.
