Rob Parker replaces Shawn after ML and Marc catch up on the wild Whitmer kidnap plot trial while Joe says “Stop the (March) Madness!”

THE STRAIGHT DOPE: ML recaps the show’s first-ever remote podcast, where technical difficulties made him wonder whether he’s not lucky enough — or not Irish enough — to try this on St. Patrick’s Day.

“Big Dan” takes the stand in the Whitmer kidnap plot trial, and tells some wild tales about the alleged conspirators — including a plan to attach the governor to a kite. Seriously!

Eli McKown of The State News joins the crew to share his plan to beat the Michigan Daily at the cash register, since the S’News can’t beat them on the gridiron. You can join ML and help support student journalists by making a donation at

GEEK OF THE WEEK: Building construction has come a long way since some jokers built a tower in Pisa in the 11th Century, so how did the folks in San Francisco get it so wrong in 2009?

ROOM 7609: Listener Tim says Flock of Seagulls was more than a hair band, so we admit them to the New Wave suite to prove it with “Modern Love is Automatic.” 

FEEDBACK: Shawn is gone this week so the listeners want to talk about — what else? — SHAWN!
