It Takes A Lot Of Money To Sound This Cheap We learn about the death of George Hartman, America's Dad, from Steve Hartman. We again lament the snub of Malcolm X at the Oscars many years ago now and make a pact to never send one another a singing telegram. Plus, Naomi is reminded again that Jordan is the biggest sweetheart ever, just in time for Valentimes Day.
info_outline It's Always Sam Elliott Season 02/03/2019
It's Always Sam Elliott Season Jordan does his best Sam Elliott impression to Naomi's delight. They discuss his appeal, sexual and otherwise. Sesame Street turns 50 years old and we learn that the Muppet actors probably cannot rely on natural deodorant in such close quarters. Naomi remember the many hours of eating at the Waffle House in her front yard as a teenager and Jordan's signature segment is safe from the chopping block. Long live The Logo Report!
info_outline The Ultimate Guide to Hamcasting 01/20/2019
The Ultimate Guide to Hamcasting Naomi and Jordan delight in being included in the segment about podcasts on CBS Sunday Morning today. Marty Stuart needs to open up that museum soon and the all too brief obituary of Walter Chandoha left us wanting more. Here is his New York Times obit: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/18/obituaries/walter-chandoha-dead.html
info_outline Hail and Farewell Mr. Smellie 12/30/2018
Hail and Farewell Mr. Smellie Naomi and Jordan return from their hiatus rested and ready to discuss CBS Sunday Morning. True to form, we kvetch about our local CBS affiliate preempting our program and making us feel like we can't have what we want when want it.
info_outline In Defense of Adulterers and Water Beds 11/25/2018
In Defense of Adulterers and Water Beds Naomi and Jordan remember their respective childhood waterbeds with great fondness. Naomi ends up defending adulterers (again) and Jordan really hates gross old ladies who tell Alessia Cara how to dress.

Bountiful Cornucopia of CBS Sunday Morning Goodness Naomi and Jordan celebrate their CBS Sunday Morning bounty with Irish Coffee's inspired by the sloshiest bartender in San Francisco and talk about all 380 segments on CBS Sunday this week. Naomi rails against Costco for not selling tater tots and Jordan is triggered by hi-def taste buds.
info_outline Squirrel CPR For Beginners 11/11/2018
Squirrel CPR For Beginners Naomi and Jordan talk about their weird pizza habits, which may alienate some listeners. Jordan wants to go to the worst pizza place in Naples and Naomi wonders how quickly Ben Stiller would snap and break your neck. Gay conversion therapy is bunk religion and The Cable Guy is a pretty great movie.
info_outline The Salty And The Sweet 10/28/2018
The Salty And The Sweet Sue Camp a.k.a. Luka's mom joins Naomi this week as a guest co-host. Sue, along, with Luka run the Twitter group CBSAnipals. Every week they get together and watch CBS Sunday Morning and have developed lifelong friendships as a result. This just might be the best thing to come from the internet.
info_outline We Don't Need Another Conspiracy 10/14/2018
We Don't Need Another Conspiracy With Tina Turner on this week, we opened up the social media polls to ask listeners which of her songs they wanted us to feature as our outro music. Facebook wanted Better Be Good To Me and Twitter picked The Best, which we should have just picked from the beginning. The Best is an amazing song and should become our national anthem once we move past these dark times.
info_outline The Beautiful and Wonderful Ritual 10/08/2018
The Beautiful and Wonderful Ritual Naomi and Jordan are fresh from a mini wedding anniversary retreat with some perspective on watching CBS Sunday Morning in the actual morning.

info_outline When You Are Beyond The Protection Of The First Amendment 09/24/2018
When You Are Beyond The Protection Of The First Amendment Naomi's new glasses has Jordan wondering if her IQ has gone up, like, 5 points. It hasn't. Jordan has shockingly never seen Rainman but gets the gist. A human voice from beneath the water takes us out of nature in today's Moment In Nature and Hearing Aid Watch is almost at an end.
info_outline When The Moment In Nature Is A Naked Burt Reynolds 09/09/2018
When The Moment In Nature Is A Naked Burt Reynolds An unsatisfactory viewing experience on the CBS News app has Naomi and Jordan questioning their life choices an whether they will be able to watch the upcoming primetime special, or not. They recount other times they have been met with difficulties and persevered.
info_outline The Washboard Apocalypse Is Upon Us 09/02/2018
The Washboard Apocalypse Is Upon Us Naomi and Jordan introduce a new segment in which they must imagine what the logo is at the end of the credits. Naomi realizes that she is at the age where she is learning about new music from CBS Sunday Morning and Jordan loves that Vincent van Gogh gets his day in the sun.

This Is A Miracle Naomi and Jordan are back at it again, this time with a new episode of CBS Sunday Morning to talk about. Today they discuss the how John McCain was okay, sometimes.

Jordan finds a story about hearing aids to be the most on-brand story from CBS Sunday Morning but we will have to wait to see it until another day.
info_outline I'm Really NOT Going To Be Ignored 08/19/2018
I'm Really NOT Going To Be Ignored We dig deep into our archives and find the original recap (I'm Not Going To Be Ignored) of today's CBS Sunday Morning episode which aired March 18, 2018 and was titled, "Mind Matters." Judging from our title we must have gone down a Glenn Close/Fatal Attraction rabbit hole, which is okay.
info_outline Born Wit' It 08/13/2018
Born Wit' It With two repeated segments this week, Naomi and Jordan are forced to discuss topics that make them seem really dumb, including a discussion about minimum wage. Naomi and Jordan speculate about a current Senator but save your hate mail because we already know we got it all wrong, except the part where Naomi calls Jordan a racist; that is factually correct.
info_outline The Great Triumverate 08/06/2018
The Great Triumverate Naomi and Jordan return from Costa Rica with some happy news regarding their TV viewing habits. Naomi enjoys a week with the Almanac, Sunday Passage, and Calendar (The Great Triumverate). Jordan reminisces about American Bandstand as a kid with no MTV. We marvel at wild horses in Maryland.
