Foreign Listeners

The Can You Hear Me boys are back with a mish mash of mustache talk, a mystery, thoughts on the S-Town podcast, Gustav’s report on foreign listeners and emails from the faithful.

To get things going Gustav reveals a mystery that he has encountered recently.  Heavy and Ty do their best to get to the bottom of problem.

Then they discuss the wildly popular S-Town podcast and how close to home it feels to the 903 area code, where the guys were born and raised.  They also discuss some of the problems that they identified with the podcast.

Somehow they get onto mustache talk, partly brought on by a recent spell of Gene Shalit jokes.  Gene was the mustachioed film critic for NBC’s Today show for years and not0rious for bad pun

s and sometimes questionable reviews.

Long time listener Fake Bailey Jay has a couple of emails chastising Gustav for possible inaccuracies and omissions.

Touching back on the previous misogynistic discussion about female singers of the seventies and eighties, Gustav brings up one the sisters from Heart and Ty ties it all back to the mountain climber game on the Price is Right.

 

Gustav has an interesting report on a recent upsurge in foreign listeners of Can You Hear Me.  The new hotbeds for Can You Hear Me downloads outside the U.S. are Japan and Germany.  Heavy has a theory why but Gus just wants to know who these people are and why they listen to the ramblings of educated hillbillies.

They also have a new female listener who sends in a t-shirt idea and is currently trying to make her way through the entire back catalog of episodes.

Curvy Girls and Seventies Game Shows

In Episode 26 of Can You Hear Me, the guys turn their attention to the sexiness of curvy girls, old game shows from the seventies and a crime story that could only happen in the 903 area code.

During the discussion of Suzy’s Lounge in Episode 25, the crew postponed talking about women with curves due to not having enough time to dedicate to the topic.  With a new episode, they have plenty of time and give it their full attention to their attraction to curvy girls.  They give a brief history of how societal attitudes toward women with more voluptuous figures changed from the fifties into the late sixties and bemoan the rise of super thin models such as Twiggy.  Gustav points out London Andrews as an example of the new school of models with curves.

But as usual, the team can’t stay on one topic too long and they discuss how seventies game shows allowed the children to have a glimpse into the adult world, even if they didn’t fully comprehend what they were hearing.  Shows like The Gong Show, Match Game and the Newlywed Game are prime examples of shows that the guys watched.  Gustav recalls a Chuck Barris produced show called Three’s A Crowd (although at the time of recording, he could not think of it’s name) where men went on the game show with their wives and secretaries and awkwardness ensued.  Check out clip below to see what Gustav was talking about.

Heavy preaches the greatness of the Netflix original series Stranger Things.  That leads Ty to point out how much technology has changed parenting styles when you compare now to how when the guys grew up in the eighties.

Then Gustav shares a news story from the 903 area code where Gainesville, TX police shut down an Asian massage parlor after a patron got more than he expected.

All this plus feedback from a new listener, Snapchat confusion, and making fun of Heavy’s dog.
