    Earful of You've Got Mail: Episode 12 (0:55:00 - 1:00:00)

    Freshly equipped with macOS Big Sur (running beautifully), we're back with a new ep of An Earful of You've Got Mail! In this ep, Joe Fox is drunk as a skunk, the lockets are opening up, and Frank stars on everybody's favorite show: "**NT WAT**". We also conclude the important saga of William Spungeon, and rhapsodize about the ecstasy of email. 10-4!

    In this, the final episode of Earful, the gang is in a feuding mood! We again return to the Happy Land of Absolutes to discuss the eleventh five minutes of You've Got Mail, and discuss the criminality of all the Mail characters, Jeffersonian purity, and modern gym wicking technology. Recorded just hours after the Presidential Election was called, we're also making our own calls: how best can an unprofitable cultural enterprise be preserved? Who is best suited to be the spokesman for Fox Books? And is Kathleen Kelly truly a pill? Featuring the famous segments "We Read the Tweets" and "We Relitigate the Feuds" (AKA "Feud Update" AKA "The Feud Litigator")

Also featuring the popular segment "Our Jacobin Feud," featuring our new enemy Meagan Day.

Educate yourself with a lively debate about whether 'A Christmas Carol' takes place at Thanksgiving or Christmas. Also introducing the popular segment "We Watch 'The Shop Around the Corner.'"

    Pop an Ultra Dorm and settle in for another episode of Earful! A veritable smorgasbord of savory morsels on display today: we analyze the egg dish, judge the poultry lift, and assess garnishes. And as always, we mix business with pleasure: analyzing the corporate structure of the Price Club, guessing Birdie's salary, and auditing bookstore revenues (we're in the book business, after all!)

    It's a hit! The Earful Gang is back with episode seven, and it's even more fun than the nut shop! It's party time at Vince Mancini's, and we have plenty of time to talk about rent control, Miranda rights, the books Miranda writes, as well as the legendary William Spungeon. (Isn't he in Mexico?) So step to the back of the drink line and listen in! (Also featuring the hit segment "We Check the Tweets")

In-depth analysIs of Convoy (1978) and Cocktail (1988)

The hosts manage to crack the movies wide open, and reveal the text, the subtext, the subsubtext, and the subsubsubtext

When you record, you reign

This podcast has taught me a lot about the 1988 movie “ Cocktail” starring Tom Cruise.
