• M.L. Elrick (Twitter @elrick/Facebook ML ELRICK/Instagram ml_elrick), Shawn Windsor (Twitter @ShawnWindsor) and Marc Fellhauer (Twitter @MarcFell) come together virtually for their first-ever work-from-home show.
  • THE STRAIGHT DOPE:  St. Patrick’s Day is a week behind us, but ML is SO proud of the limericks he wrote for last week’s show — but forgot to read — that he offers a little doggerel to start this week’s show.
  • Marc does roll call, asking the boys from whence they’re broadcasting.
  • While ML dashes off to grab a power cord, Marc and Shawn take over. Find out how the mice play when the cat’s away.
  • Shawn claims not to be a fancy boy, but nevertheless knows what a “sconce light” is. Listen and learn.
  • Marc asks what it’s like to hit the streets as a reporter when no one is supposed to be on the streets.
  • ML discusses the social media storm created by what he thought was an innocuous Tweet about the Hallmark card woman he ran into at CVS.
  • Shawn tips his cap to the new heroes of the coronavirus crisis: the folks who keep the shelves stocked and the folks who wield a mop. ML launches into a paean to his fellow shelf stockers and Marc adds power line workers and truckers to the list of oft-overlooked and critically-important people. Can we get an “Amen!”
  • Marc urges Congress to act with an economic stimulus package. Shawn and ML aren’t as eager, triggering yet another ingenious ML analogy (says ML, who writes these show notes).
  • THE GREAT DEBATE: The experts say “STAY AWAY!” from other people for as long as you can to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. But a certain influential American has begun to question whether that advise is in America’s best interests. Our three stable geniuses weigh in.
  • GEEK OF THE WEEK: The lieutenant governor of Texas says he — and a whole lotta other grandparents — are willing to risk their lives to get the U.S. economy cranking again. As people who love their grandparents — and plenty of other codgers — we sound a note of caution.
  • ROOM 7609:  Crowded House is not exactly what the doctor ordered in this age of social distancing. But these NuWave wonders from down under have an oft-overlooked track that ML believes may contain some messages worth considering as we contemplate what comes next. Plus, it’s got a great opening bass line!
