Back to School with Covid-19

In another visit from the World News Center, Bill McCormick and I discussed why opening the schools would be a disaster, based on the fact that over 7,000 children have tested positive for Covid-19 in Tennessee alone.  We talked about the long-term damage caused by the disease, including up to 38 percent of people who recover possibly suffering long-term neurological symptoms.  Plus:  Bill eats a Lego and talks about things excrementally increasing.

Dr. Michael Tompkins

Dr. Michael Tompkins joined the show to talk about what we’ll see on the newest season of A&E’s “Hoarders.”

Linda Hamilton

“Terminator” and “Beauty and the Beast” star Linda Hamilton called in to talk about her latest movie, “Easy Does It,” a modern version of a 1970’s action-road picture-comedy-thriller.  We discussed how her character has elements of the “Captain” from “Cool Hand Luke,” filming in Louisiana in the summer, and performing in cornrows.

All-Bacon McDiet

Bill McCormick joined the show once again from the World News Center for a chat about the latest Covid-19 news, including current vaccine trials.  No, there won’t be a vaccine available by September, but some of the trials are looking promising.  Plus: opening schools too soon, beer drinking milkmaids, and Bill & Ryan go on and all Bacon & McDonald’s diet.

Josh Dela Cruz

Josh Dela Cruz returned to the show to chat about a special new episode of “Blue’s Clues and You,” featuring “Bluestock,” Blue’s backyard jam.  We also talked about Blue’s online playdates, working on season 2, and blowing kids’ minds when they learn “he’s real!”

Caity Weaver

Caity Weaver from the New York Times called in for a lively chat about her article taking a look behind the scenes (and on the actual yacht) at Bravo’s “Below Deck Mediterranean.”

Fourth of July Is a Lie

In this week’s special holiday visit from the World News Center, Bill McCormick shared exciting news about a new book release, which is already being bootlegged on the streets of Shanghai for a nickel and a corn dog. We then talked about how the REAL independence day is July 2, 1776 and not the 4th.  We also discussed the Alabama Covid-19 contest, day drinking during lockdown, and hanging out with Jimi Hendrix.

Andy Mulvihill

Andy Mulvihill called in for a fun chat about his new book “ACTION PARK: Fast Times, Wild Rides, and the Untold Story of America’s Most Dangerous Amusement Park.”  Andy’s dad was the founder and creator of the park and Andy was the original test subject for all of the rides.

James “Murr” Murray

James “Murr” Murray from “Impractical Jokers” joined our Four Timers club when he called in for a fun chat about his new book “Obliteration.”  Much celebration shall be had when he calls in again to talk about either a tv show or a movie or a wacky prank he decided to play on me.

Adrienne Bankert

Emmy Award-winning journalist Adrienne Bankert joined us for a discussion about her new book, “Your Hidden Superpower:  The Kindness That Makes You Unbeatable at Work and Connects You With Anyone.”
