  • Birthday Boy

    It's a special day for episode 80... we have a birthday in the house! Rodney recounts his birthday hijinks including battling a winter squall to get some bbq ribs. Then, Sean tries to figure out what he has been hearing in pre-school and on the street in another edition of Say What. Later, it's Rodney's turn in the hot seat for Quiz Time while Sean tries to stump him with sometimes controversial (sort of) questions.

  • Ambassador Rodney

    Here he comes... Ambassador Rodney!! Or, at least he plays one on TV, or he stayed at a Holiday Inn last night. Rodney recounts his experience of appearing on the Swedish TV show DIPS. We also get some mustache and beard updates for Movember, and we take a listener question about a "Swine Apple." Plus, we debate the versatility of natural v.s artificial Christmas trees.
    Rodney appears at 11m55s in S2E1 of Dips on SVT. Link

  • Who Is That Mustachioed Man?

    It's Father's Day in Sweden! The guys talk about how they spent the day, and they also introduce their Movember campaign. Rodney is growing out a mustache (and Sean is going full beard) to raise awareness and money to support men's health medical research. Plus, apparently a meteor (or meteorite?) exploded over Stockholm...

  • Everyone’s A Comedian

    The 2 guys are joined by comedian Brian Johnson this week. Originally from South Florida and Georgia, he’s been in Sweden longer than he likes to admit. He gives the guys the inside scoop on how he got into comedy (hint: he didn’t start in the U.S.), what to do while in Malmö, his go-to meal when he goes back home and even how to get into stand-up comedy.

  • Rhubarb?!?

    It’s the last week of daylight savings time in Sweden, and Sean is freaking out about the incoming darkness and winter. He and Rodney run down their winter checklist to talk about all of the things they are avoiding. Then, it’s game time! This week’s edition features word association.
