What do we want our phones to do that they don't already do? Why should someone start swimming when they're older? And did Hands Across America actually work, and what part did Phil play in it? Some of these questions will be answered!
Phil and Kevin talk about theme parks, amusement parks, and their love of stimulating lines and air conditioning. Then they talk about Gawker and how it's totally gone now, and why that matters and does not matter and both at the same time. And then they talk about The Tragically Hip's last concert which, yeesh, tears and appreciation. The whole thing has a surprising number of feels and insights.

Phil & Kevin run the gamut: Pokemon Go, golf as an Olympic sport, their lists of Top 10 Beck Songs, and why 1960s vocal groups seemed to add imaginary members to their number.

Phil and Kevin are fans of things, it is safe to say. They are not the kind of fans who wish for the creators of things to die. Why do people want people, who make things they enjoy, to die? Also: how it feels when your team wins a championship (not something everyone listening may find familiar).
Kevin wrote a thing about his year in review, and it involves a mid-life crisis, wondering what you're good at, trying to work without expecting fame. Phil knows a thing or two about that.
Day of the Dead (Spotify album)
Phil and Kevin talk to each other and record it, for the the first time since February 2014. The men were slightly rusty. The Skype connection was if-y at first but got better (next time, we'll dual-record). Kevin's dog was a bit prance-y. Phil's son couldn't find Batman. But there were things to be discussed. Like the new Radiohead album! And HeroQuest! And everything that happened since the last episode. EVERYTHING.
