Ep. 148 - Misanthrope Origin of Speakcies

    • Arts

The guys discuss the origin of the word that describes a person who dislikes and avoids other people - misanthrope.  

Scott and Steve discuss how a play from French playwright Moliere helped to popularize the term and ponder what it means to be an 
Imaginary Cuckold (while dying of tuberculosis).

On the "Origin of Eatcies" segment, the guys talk with Ron Romano of the McRib and Me podcast about everyone's favorite 
restructured pork - the McRib!

And, finally, Steve explores the life and career of one of his all-time favorite writers and (self-proclaimed) misanthropes - Miss Florence King. 

Most importantly - don't ever, ever FaceTime anyone at 8 AM on a Monday.
