  /  ITUNES  /  RSS 



Good morning, brains! Love it or hate it, getting up in the morning is something we have to face every single day. Well,'re a nocturnal mole-person. We gab about juicy trivia and silly histories behind some of our favorite and least favorite parts of the morning ritual: Saturday morning cartoons, extremely hyper morning drink quiz, the dreaded hangover, the morning commute, the worst/best invention of the world - the snooze button, and play a round of "ENERGY DRINK?...Or SHOW ON THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL?"

ALSO: Awful jokes by children, and Elements quiz

RUNTIME: 49 minutes 17 seconds


Featured Interlude Music:

"Heart Attack" by Sum 41  Amazon | iTunes 

"Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" (cover) by Matthieu Bore  Amazon | iTunes
