- Listeners take over — but only after ML debuts a sweet new video. Marc appreciates the quality, while Shawn seemingly casts a vote against bringing honest change to Detroit politics. Joey votes absentee for a write-in candidate.
- THE STRAIGHT DOPE: Last week’s show featured a 100-year-old woman, so it seems appropriate that ML would kick off the latest episode by debuting a video delving into his relationship with an 80-year-old constituent.
- As a pot shop in southwest Detroit teeters on the brink of collapse, listeners take over as the triumvirate review and respond to a collection of provocative and insightful emails sent to email@example.com. Sadly, it has been ages since anyone left a voicemail at BUtterfield8-9070. (HINT HINT)
- Shawn says he is concerned that the show has become too political, then derails the show as he delves into a series of political topics.
- After Shawn voices a familiar lament that the show is all about ML, a listener’s email shifts the spotlight back to Shawn’s pathetic girly-man hammies.
- ML and Dennis from across the street go canvassing — and Dennis makes a big score that leaves ML longing for more.
- GEEK OF THE WEEK: Tyra Banks’ ex-boyfriend is this week’s geek … giving ML a chance to recount his encounter with the super model who will always rate a 10 in his book.
- ROOM 7609: ML struggles to overcome distractions to discuss the music and delve into the career of Shriekback, a band you’ve heard of even though you didn’t realize it. Their atmospheric “This Big Hush” triggers a discussion of the work of Thomas Harris and Michael Mann.
