Episode 32 – America’s Sweet Hart Melissa Joan Hart

Episode 31.6 – Merry Madness Part II: There can BE ONLY one



This Throwback Thursday we’re continuing to ride into the throws of TV holiday specials. As promised, today, we will work through the Elated Elite Eight, the Frostbite Four, and determine the overall Merry Madness Champion.This is part two of this Christmas-y competition. We went through the overviews of each episode last time (Part 1), so if you need a refresher course, I recommend going back and giving it a listen. Onward toward the champion! Excelsior!


Episode 31.5 – Merry Madness Part I



For this year’s holiday special, the gang wanted to do something fun. So we decided to take 16 of our favorite TV specials of the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s… and pit them against each other in a single elimination tournament we are calling MERRY MADNESS. We have 16 different holiday episodes that will lock reindeer antlers, and only 8 will emerge victorious. Much like the NCAA Basketball tournament of a coincidentally similar name, our contenders are split into 4 regions. Due to the breadth of what we’re trying to cover, we have split this special into two action-packed episodes. The first half is being covered now, on December 17th, the one year anniversary to the Dating Ourselves Podcast debut. The second half will be posted on throwback Thursday, December 20th.


Episode 31 – Dumbo: The Elephant in the Room



Even though it was released in 1941, Disney’s fourth full-length feature production Dumbo was re-released in the 80s and 90s on Betamax and VHS, exposing a whole generation to flying pink elephant terror. On this Paul lead episode, Adam talks about presidential portraits, Brian reinforces the myth that elephants are made of rubber, and Paul expresses his fondness for drunk doctors.


Episode 30 – America’s High-Five, Ft. The Russian Five vs The Fab Five



This time on Dating Ourselves, the guys talk about two great teams from the Great Lakes State: the Detroit Red Wings’ Russian Five and the Michigan Wolverines’ Fab Five. Not only do you get to hear about them, but the guys will definitively decide on whether these hockey greats or these basketball greats are the greatest (pretty great, right?!). Brian brings up the Buffalo Bills a few times, Adam crunches some numbers, and Paul has heard of at least some of these players!

We’ll learn Paul’s rude dietary habits as he murders burritos on air after skipping dinner. Adam will teach us about the personification of death, and how he doesn’t seem like such a bad guy. Brian will ask the hard questions such as what does the Slasher genre mean to you? All this and more on Halloween… Special… ya know, Halloween Special!

Episode 27 – Back to the 9daays, ft. The 27 Club
