Can you compete with robots for your job? That’s the question asked by science fantasy author Christopher Allen Jones. Relative to that, Phil shares a story about a McDonald’s counter worker whose actions help make the case for robots replacing cashiers. Sexologist, Dr. Kristie Overstreet talks about revving up your summer sex life. In addition to that, Dr. Overstreet touches on parenting a transgender child. Plus these stories: Costco or Cosmo? One is being forced to pay big bucks to Tiffany. The other is encouraging women to send nude photos via text (sexting). Don’t miss Phil’s theory on Cosmo’s purpose. Would you get an L.A. chargers Tattoo? It’s free! Eclipse doomsday myths debunked! Where to get a pair of solar eclipse glasses. Finally, the ultimate total solar eclipse playlist….or is it?
Sex dominated the conversation on today’s show. However, things got started like a nail shot out of a nail gun…right into this dude’s heart. He’s from Wisconsin, don’t you know. But don’t get up out of your chair, he wouldn’t want to put you out or anything, eh? Did gay guys ruin nude beaches for everyone? That’s what Phil Hulett thinks. Undercover cops bust 50 men in public beach sex scandal. Speaking of beaches, Bing figured out a way to put the penis in search. Uh, what is Bing again? Apparently watching porn is damaging a particular part of your brain. Kellie Sue offers a helpful suggestion: “Switch hands.” People are getting injured shaving their pubes. Gonzo asks Phil what his personal position is on manscaping. What do you think it is? A man misses his dearly departed wife so much, he finds a robot replacement, a robot with a particular set of skills. We don’t know why but people love smelly stuff. Then there’s the $900 check you could get if you received this robo-call. Plus, Manny the Movie Guy reviews The Hitman’s Body Guard and Logan Lucky. Guess which movie got high marks, uh, kisses from Manny? Another Manny moment occurs when he comments on Daniel Craig’s return to 007. In addition, can you name the family film about forbidden love that leads the domestic box-office for 2017. Finally, Intern Ricky almost bags his first booking for the show.

Preview time! But, before I get into the preview of episode 329, I want to update you on my recovery from hernia surgery. I know, it’s not
like I had an organ removed or anything, but still, I’ve got to be ready for the end of September when my first-born gets married. Yup, two weddings in one year. Olivia in March and Alexandra in September. By ready, which, how can you not be ready, I meant, I need to be ready to do the splits when the DJ plays “Get Up Offa That Thing” by James Brown. So, as for my recovery…I’ve been going to the gym and yesterday was the first day I did ab work since I realized I had a hernia in March (and proceeded to do the splits at Olivia’s wedding anyway). Upshot, I feel pretty good, and will continue to pour on the sweat so I can look good in a tuxedo for Alexandra.
Enough about me, how about a preview of Episode 329?
We have a packed show, as usual. Co-Hosts are Gonzo Greg Spillane and Kellie Sue Peters. That’s a nice pairing because they are good friends….so the friends are actually friends today. As for guests, I’m working on getting an ophthalmologist on the show to talk about what happens to your eyes when you look directly at the solar eclipse. Incidentally, I have the ultimate Solar Eclipse playlist for you. While it’s still relevant, be sure to check out Episode 328, Part 2 in which we discuss the solar eclipse at length with an astronomy expert.
Plus Manny the Movie Guy reviews the Hitman’s Bodyguard and Logan Lucky. Scientific Analyst, Foresight Inquisitor, and Author of the fictional, scientific thriller, “Reversione: Reset The Future” Christopher Allen Jones will discuss how life on the job is changing as we deal with the ever-increasing potential of “Competing with Robots.” And, author of the book, Fix Yourself First, Sexologist (good gig, huh?) Dr. Kristie Overstreet joins us to talk about heating up your summer sex life.

It’s Armageddon I tell ya! Consequently, the story of the week is the 16-year old who went into the water at a beach in Australia and came out bleeding profusely from his legs. What caused it? A Marine Biologist from the University of New South Wales spoke with us and thinks he might possibly, maybe know, perhaps what these tiny, hungry-for-flesh sea creatures could be, maybe. Plus the infamous Ford Bronco which carried a despondent, armed OJ Simpson along the freeways and streets of Southern California while fans cheers, “Go Juice Go!” is up for sale. Don’t worry, you can’t afford it. Man finds something unusual in his beer. Gin company puts inedible junk in their bottles on purpose. Former DJ uses “No-Ass Defense” in case against Taylor Swift. Manny the Movie Guy reviews Annabelle: Creation, The Nut Job 2, and The Glass Castle. There’s an unexpected side-effect to tattoo’s. Whatever you do, please do not use conditioner on your hair after a nuclear attack. Judge Judy is hot! Finally, the Bank of England tells vegans to piss off!

There’s going to be blood, a lot of it!
Blood start pumping! As I sit here, first thing in the morning, enjoying a cup of coffee, a bowl of Grape nuts with almond milk, a hard boiled, free range, organic egg, and toast with super chunk peanut butter, I realize I better snap off a preview for Episode 328 of our podcast before I hop in the car to drive to LA Radio Studio on the edge of the beautiful Los Angeles Harbor.
Did I mention blood yet?
First up on the show today, what I believe is the news item of the week…remember, we don’t talk politics…something happened to a 16-year-old boy in Australia when he went into the water at the beach, and when he came out, he was a bloody mess! That something will definitely make you think twice about going in the water, but really, I wonder if this is a sign of the beginning of the end for humans on Earth? Marine biology expert, Professor Alistair Poore joins us from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia to let us know if our species stands a chance against this lurking sea menace.
Next, a lot of people, millions of people, are flocking to cities they wouldn’t normally consider traveling to, just so they can experience darkness for about 5 minutes. Yes, it’s the total eclipse of the sun on August 21st. J. Kelly Beatty is the Senior Editor of Sky & Telescope Magazine. He’ll give us a star-gazer’s perspective on this very rare event and whether it’s worth it to travel to see it in it’s totality.
Speaking of travel, our travel dude, Gary Warner joins us to talk about something United Airlines is doing that might just usher in a new golden era of travel to Hawaii. I am pretty sure Gary has mentioned on the show several times that Hawaii is his favorite place to visit.
Just back from a trip himself, is none other than Manny the Movie Guy. I want to hear all about his trip to Greece in search of Wonder Woman’s cave. Did he find her? Was he taken hostage and ravaged by man-starved amazons? We’ll find out…and we’ll also find out if this weekend’s new movies are worth seeing. Manny will review Annabelle: Creation, starring Miranda Otto and Anthony LaPaglia…who I am pretty sure both die in the movie. The animated sequel, The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature featuring the voices of Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl, Maya Rudolph, Gabriel Iglesias, Bobby Cannavale, Peter Stormare and Jackie Chan. I wonder if Chan do es his own stunts in this movie? And The Glass Castle, which stars Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts.
Plus, the strange side-effects of tattoo’s, why it’s a bad idea to use conditioner on your hair after a nuclear blast, have nutrition experts been lying to us all these years about salt? Alcohol-infused hamburgers, Harley-Davidson-infused Gin, and…oh, that should be enough…but it isn’t. You need to hear this episode to know what else we have up our sleeves.
Joining me in the studio for today’s show are the lovely, the talented, straight outta Nashville, Skylar Cuarisma-Parshall, and the almost as lovely…well, it is possible he has better hair…certainly talented, my buddy from way back when we both worked at Pure Rock 105.5 KNAC FM in the 1980’s, Stew Herrera.
