Thriving in Dystopia

Ep49: Taking a Page from “Wonderful”

May 16, 2021

Dave sings the show in with what Bob thought was a Divinyls song, but in actuality, is Lovefool by the Cardigans, a song famously featured on The Office on season 3, episode 5 (and not Austin Powers -- that was Carnival). Dave was looking for the lyric, “I can’t care ‘bout anything but you.” 


The Crew structures this episode based on “Wonderful,” by Griffin and Rachel McElroy. 


Dave’s small wonder is the chocolate-salted caramel.  Bob’s is quiz-mastering.


Dave’s big wonder is boardgames. Note: The gallbladder stores bile, not insulin. 


Bob’s big wonder is direct action.


Gut Check

By 2030 there will be a 51st U.S. state (Bob gives it a 7; Dave gives it a 10).
