Cheers to Endings and New Beginnings
<p>Hi everyone,</p> <p>This is Emily from the Classy Little Podcast. I wanted to apologize for ending the podcast so abruptly after a very long hiatus. Thank you to all our listeners and supporters -- it was really an amazing year of podcasting we’ll never forget.</p> <p>Anyway, you can still catch James on the <a href= "unskippablepod.com">Unskippable</a> podcast with my husband Mark, where they review one new album every episode and make each other listen to an old favorite without skipping it. You can find information at <a href= "unskippablepod.com">UnskippablePod.com</a></p> <p>And you can find me on my new podcast called <a href= "thestorybehindpodcast.com">The Story Behind</a>, which is similar to the Classy Little Podcast, as far as finding out information about a new topic every week, but it’s much more specific. The format is much shorter than Classy Little Podcast -- these are bites-sized episodes that can fill the 5-10 minutes here and there, or save them up and binge-listen as you please.</p> <p>There’s no wine and cheese, unfortunately -- but, then again, one of the reasons Classy Little Podcast is no more is that I haven’t been able to enjoy wine or certain cheeses for about four months now, and I have another five months to go with no wine. But, despite what other podcasters may say, babies aren’t podcast killers. But doing shorter episodes means I’ll have less editing and production work, as well as a chance to put out two episodes every week.</p> <p>So, I can leave you here with a final farewell from the Classy Little Podcast and you can skip ahead to your next podcast, or you can keep listening for the first episode of my new show, <a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/story-behind-...-extraordinary/id1168812484?mt=2&i=377077146"> The Story Behind The Theremin</a>.</p> <p>If you like what you hear, please subscribe on <a href= "https://geo.itunes.apple.com/podcast/story-behind-...-extraordinary/id1168812484?mt=2&at=1"> iTunes</a>, <a href= "https://goo.gl/app/playmusic?ibi=com.google.PlayMusic&isi=691797987&ius=googleplaymusic&link=https://play.google.com/music/m/It4dvroaif7n53gizgw5eyfztby?t%3DThe_Story_Behind_..."> Google Play Music</a>, <a href= "http://stitcher.com/s?fid=102017&refid=stpr">Stitcher</a> or your favorite podcast app.</p> <p>And find more information at <a href= "thestorybehindpodcast.com">TheStoryBehindPodcast.com</a>.</p> <p><br /> Cheers!</p>

Try putting a piece of paper down! Emily finds out why cats seem to be drawn to paper, and we try out this phenomenon on Little Man! Emily is slowly becoming Angela from "The Office."</p> <p>Speaking of "The Office," James talks about the show we both love so much, which if you've never seen it, is about a paper company ... except for the German version, as we find out.</p> <p>If you've ever wanted to destroy the world, James tells us just how much paper it would take to print the internet.</p> <p>Next time you're in the bathroom, you can thank Northern toilet paper for pushing "splinter-free" paper towel. And, Emily finally puts the over/under controversy to rest about how toilet paper should be positioned. (Letters can be addressed to <a href= "mailto:contact@classylittlepodcast.com">contact@classylittlepodcast.com</a>.)</p> <p>We also both know why paper cuts hurt so much, but Emily lets James give the answer. But, we do all know how badly they hurt!</p> <p>If you think origami was just a hobby, that's just scratching the surface. Find out why the crane is one of the most popular origami shapes and how origami folding techniques have been used in technology, science and medicine.</p> <p>James finishes our episode correcting an Oops! moment from our last episode, thanks to Aven who let us know via Twitter.</p> <p><a href="classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/46">Visit the show notes for this episode</a>.</p> <p>Featured promos:</p> <p><a href="http://www.debtshepherd.com/">Debt Shepherd</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.mattalkonline.com/">Mat Talk Online</a></p> <p>Find more great podcasts on Twitter by searching the hashtag <a href= "https://twitter.com/hashtag/podernfamily">#PodernFamily</a>!</p> <p>Special thanks to our classy sponsors on Patreon: <a href= "https://twitter.com/DebtShepherd">Greg</a> from <a href= "http://www.debtshepherd.com/">Debt Shepherd</a>, <a href= "http://www.podunderground.com/">PodUnderground</a> & <a href= "https://twitter.com/jasonmbryant">Jason Bryant</a> from <a href= "http://www.mattalkonline.com/">Mat Talk Online</a> and the <a href="http://www.mattalkonline.com/category/podcast/short-time/"> Short Time Wrestling</a> podcast.</p> <p>Find out how you can support the Classy Little Podcast by visiting <a href="classylittlepodcast.com/support" target= "_blank">classylittlepodcast.com/support</a>.</p> <p>Thanks to Adam Centamore for his book, "<a href= "http://www.amazon.com/Tasting-Wine-Cheese-Mastering-Principles/dp/1631590677?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=1631590677&linkCode=w00&linkId=LS2EWSRYHJB6XALM&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20">Tasting Wine & Cheese: An Insider's Guide to Mastering the Principles of Pairing</a>," which inspires us to try new wine and cheese pairings in every episode!</p> <p>Cheers!</p>

Cheers to Insects | Awesome Ants, Busy Bees, Bugs of Nightmares (CLP-Ep. 44)
<p>Stop right there if you have a delicate stomach. We're talking about creepy, crawly insects this week. And, despite looking for the positive traits of them, we can say with certainty -- nope, some of them can be downright jerks!</p> <p>For wine deals through our affiliate, wine.com, visit <a href= "classylittlepodcast.com/wine">classylittlepodcast.com/wine</a>.</p> <p>Listen and subscribe on <a href= "classylittlepodcast.com/itunes">iTunes</a> or <a href= "classylittlepodcast.com/gpm">Google Play Music</a>, and find out more at <a href= "classylittlepodcast.com/subscribe">classylittlepodcast.com/subscribe</a>.</p> <p>Find us on <a href="https://www.snapchat.com/add/classypodcast" target="_blank">Snapchat</a> | <a href="twitter.com/classy_podcast" target="_blank">Twitter</a> | <a href= "facebook.com/classylittlepodcast" target="_blank">Facebook</a></p> <p>This episode's wine: Tremo 2014 Rioja Tempranillo</p> <p>This episode's cheese: Smoked Gouda</p> <p>For extras, including bonus content, visit the show notes for this episode at <a href="classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/44" target="_blank">classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/44</a>.</p> <p>Even though we're marked as an explicit podcast because sometimes we drop a few F-bombs here and there, listeners should be warned about the awful conduct of the insects we talk about this week.</p> <p>Want your own I ADULTED TODAY sticker? Listen to the episode to find out how to get your very own -- even if your version of Adulting is putting wine in a wine glass (as opposed to a coffee mug).</p> <p>James teases Emily with talk of kittens ... but, unfortunately, nothing we talk about is as cute as a kitten. Find out about some of the collective names of insects, like a Kaleidoscope of Butterflies or an Intrusion of Cockroaches.</p> <p>Remember all the funny sounds of enthusiasm Emily made in <a href="http://www.classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/24">Cheers to Cats</a>? She makes just as many grossed-out sounds in this episode. James shows his weird fascination with ants. He also starts getting some lessons in puns -- because that's what the world needs more of. And James somehow talks about our ANT-cestors! Get it? Get it?</p> <p>Learn about honeypot ants. Seriously, these things are just gross. (If you really want a look at these things, here's a <a href="https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/aa/Closeup_on_honeypot_ants_%28Myrmecocystus_mimicus%29_at_Oakland_Zoo.jpg"> picture</a>.) Emily's only defense against getting grossed out are puns!</p> <p>Emily talks about bees(?), Cards Against Humanity, and how she started researching bees and it became an internet rabbit hole for her. Find out about the superstitions and old wives' tales about bees, including rituals for telling bees about major life events.</p> <p>Would you eat blue or green honey if you knew it came from M&Ms? We would love to try it. France, send it over to us to try!</p> <p>And, despite humans' fear of bees, the decline of honeybees actually affects us and the food we eat. Emily gives us some tips to help out our little busy bee-friends.</p> <p>But, if you've ever wondered why a bee dies when it stings you, put down whatever you're eating when Emily tells you why. Also, Internet, be ashamed of yourself! You know why!</p> <p>James talks more about ants and how they enslave other ants, and how some ants are revolting against this slavery! And, if you haven't learned about about insects to give you nightmares, Emily tells us about two of the most nightmare-inducing insects in existence, the Mantidfly and the Perisceptis Carnivora.</p> <p>After that, we ended the episode by talking about sex! But, don't get excited -- insects even turn that into a terrible thing. Bedbugs are especially violent when it comes to procreation.</p> <p>We would love to hear from you about what you call fireflies or lightning bugs! Let us know! Email <a href= "mailto:classypodcast@gmail.com">classypodcast@gmail.com</a> or <a href="twitter.com/classy_podcast">Tweet at us</a>!</p> <p>By the way, the play that Emily talks about is called "Time Flies," and it's a really great one-act play. Although, you may not want to take Emily's advice on entertainment, since she clearly hates Woody Allen.</p> <p>Sweet dreams!</p> <p>Featured promos:</p> <p>Unskippable (<a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/unskippable-3-album-reviews/id1095555716?mt=2&ls=1">iTunes</a>/<a href="http://unskippablepod.com/">URL</a>)</p> <p>Find more great podcasts on Twitter by searching the hashtag <a href= "https://twitter.com/hashtag/podernfamily">#PodernFamily</a>!</p> <p>Special thanks to our classy sponsors on Patreon: <a href= "https://twitter.com/DebtShepherd">Greg</a> from <a href= "http://www.debtshepherd.com/">Debt Shepherd;</a> <a href= "http://www.podunderground.com/">PodUnderground;</a> <a href= "https://twitter.com/jasonmbryant">Jason Bryant</a> from <a href= "http://www.mattalkonline.com/">Mat Talk Online</a> and the <a href="http://www.mattalkonline.com/category/podcast/short-time/"> Short Time Wrestling</a> podcast; and <a href= "twitter.com/epicfilmguys">Nick</a> from <a href= "epicfilmguys.com">Epic Film Guys</a>!</p> <p>Find out how you can support the Classy Little Podcast by visiting <a href="classylittlepodcast.com/support" target= "_blank">classylittlepodcast.com/support</a>.</p> <p>Special thanks to Adam Centamore for his book, "<a href= "http://www.amazon.com/Tasting-Wine-Cheese-Mastering-Principles/dp/1631590677?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=1631590677&linkCode=w00&linkId=LS2EWSRYHJB6XALM&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20">Tasting Wine & Cheese: An Insider's Guide to Mastering the Principles of Pairing</a>," which inspires us to try new wine and cheese pairings in every episode!</p> <p>Cheers!</p>

Somehow, Emily finds a way to relate James' research to <a href= "http://www.amazon.com/Breakfast-Club-30th-Anniversary/dp/B00RJXKUVA?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B00RJXKUVA&linkCode=w00&linkId=499db8b898ba55b9111a7a961bc15875&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20"> The Breakfast Club</a>.</p> <p>Some of the best architecture stories can be found in New York City, and Emily talks about the building of the Brooklyn Bridge, including the three chief architects who worked on it. Find out why the Manhattan side of the bridge is built onto a sand bed instead of bedroom, and the recently-discovered Cold War-era bunker found in the masonry.</p> <p>And, before anyone takes this idea, this episode will be our evidence that we came up with the movie idea based on George C. Parker, who sold the bridge twice per week for 30 years.</p> <p>Find out about some of the biggest architecture failures, and never underestimate Emily's talent for fooling James into thinking she's listening to him when she's actually using the time to come up with a tortured pun. (Be sure to check out the <a href= "http://99percentinvisible.org/episode/structural-integrity/">99% Invisible episode</a> talking more about the Citigroup Building.)</p> <p>Get ready to have your childhood rerun memories ruined when Emily talks about architects in pop culture and how they might not have been that great at their careers, but they are great leading characters. Mike Brady, Elyse Keaton and even Art Vandelay find their way into our episode. James also asks an very important question regarding the bathroom habits of talking horses.</p> <p>If you have 20 minutes to spare to learn about the impossible architecture of Overlook Hotel in "The Shining" and Stanley Kubrick's genius direction, check out these YouTube videos! <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sUIxXCCFWw">Video 1</a> and <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfJ8rK7eJeQ">Video 2</a>.</p> <p>Featured promos:</p> <p>The Ultra Podcast (<a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-ultra-podcast/id1109909312?mt=2">iTunes</a>/<a href="https://m.facebook.com/TheUltraPodcast/">URL</a>)</p> <p>Epic Film Guys (<a href= "https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/epic-film-guys-podcast/id1027239734?mt=2">iTunes</a>/<a href="epicfilmguys.com">URL</a>) </p> <p>Find more great podcasts on Twitter by searching the hashtag <a href= "https://twitter.com/hashtag/podernfamily">#PodernFamily</a>!</p> <p>Thanks to Lisa for featuring us as Lisa's Choice Podcast Award winner for the <a href= "http://lisastrawn.wix.com/podcastawards#!First-Award-Indie-Category/wmh84/574f35520cf25085214e4fdf"> Indie Podcast Category</a>!</p> <p>And check out Emily on <a href= "http://podcastersroundtable.com/">Podcasters' Roundtable</a> talking about <a href= "http://podcastersroundtable.com/pr072-worklifepodcast-balance/">Work/Life/Podcasting Balance</a>.</p> <p>Special thanks to our classy sponsors on Patreon: <a href= "https://twitter.com/DebtShepherd">Greg</a> from <a href= "http://www.debtshepherd.com/">Debt Shepherd</a>, <a href= "http://www.podunderground.com/">PodUnderground</a> & <a href= "https://twitter.com/jasonmbryant">Jason Bryant</a> from <a href= "http://www.mattalkonline.com/">Mat Talk Online</a> and the <a href="http://www.mattalkonline.com/category/podcast/short-time/"> Short Time Wrestling</a> podcast.</p> <p>Find out how you can support the Classy Little Podcast by visiting <a href="classylittlepodcast.com/support" target= "_blank">classylittlepodcast.com/support</a>.</p> <p>Special thanks to Adam Centamore for his book, "<a href= "http://www.amazon.com/Tasting-Wine-Cheese-Mastering-Principles/dp/1631590677?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=1631590677&linkCode=w00&linkId=LS2EWSRYHJB6XALM&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20">Tasting Wine & Cheese: An Insider's Guide to Mastering the Principles of Pairing</a>," which inspires us to try new wine and cheese pairings in every episode!</p> <p>Cheers!</p>

Cheers to Numbers | Unlucky 13, Rule of Three, Numbers Music Quiz (CLP-Ep. 42)
<p>For episode 42, we had to do something related to "<a href= "http://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Hitchhikers-Guide-Galaxy/dp/0345453743?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=0345453743&linkCode=w00&linkId=HGNCU5FBXO4ENIT4&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20">The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy</a>," but since neither of us had read the book, we decided to raise our glasses to numbers, instead! Aside from 42 being the ultimate answer, we also look at the number 3 in religions, how 30 percent of data begins with the number 1, and why 13 is really just the Jan Brady of numbers.</p> <p>This episode's wine:<a href= "drinkbellaggio.com"> Bell'Aggio Rosso Dolce</a></p> <p>This episode's cheese: Trader Joe's Cheddar with Caramelized Onions</p> <p>For wine deals through our affiliate, wine.com, visit <a href= "classylittlepodcast.com/wine">classylittlepodcast.com/wine</a>.</p> <p>Listen and subscribe on <a href= "classylittlepodcast.com/itunes">iTunes</a> or <a href= "classylittlepodcast.com/gpm">Google Play Music</a>, and find out more at <a href= "classylittlepodcast.com/subscribe">classylittlepodcast.com/subscribe</a>.</p> <p>Find us on <a href="https://www.snapchat.com/add/classypodcast" target="_blank">Snapchat</a> | <a href="twitter.com/classy_podcast" target="_blank">Twitter</a> | <a href= "facebook.com/classylittlepodcast" target="_blank">Facebook</a></p> <p>We adored the Bell'Aggio Rosso Dolce, which we were sent a bottle of to review. It's a light, effervescent red that tastes great chilled. And we would absolutely drink this with any of the recommended pairings and more! Even Kitty -- our friend who didn't even like wine adored this!</p> <p>Even thought James and Emily haven't read Douglas Adams' "<a href= "http://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Hitchhikers-Guide-Galaxy/dp/0345453743?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=0345453743&linkCode=w00&linkId=HGNCU5FBXO4ENIT4&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20">The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy</a>," we decided to do something special for Episode 42. So we chose numbers to raise our glasses to this week. Aside from just Douglas Adams who used 42 in his writings, Lewis Carroll was also known for using that number in his works. Emily also points out some of the other instances in literature and pop culture 42 appears.</p> <p>James talks about Benford's Law, which is the frequency of the No. 1 as the first digit of a lot of data sets. Don't believe us? Think of your electricity bill or some street addresses you may know. We realized, also, if you try to commit fraud, make sure the first number is 1.</p> <p>Despite learning how the periodic table was filled in even before many elements were known, Emily gets to complain about the shape of the Periodic Table. And Emily's husband's pure hatred of 87 because of the Pittsburgh Penguins player, Sidney Crosby. And, if you haven't caught Cheers to Guys Night, in which Mark and James talk about the Trifecta of Beauty, <a href= "classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/25">check it out here</a>!</p> <p>James talks about some of the Chinese superstitions about numbers and why the phone number 888-8888 sold for $280,000. Apparently, if you're doing business with China, throw in some 8s, since it's a sign of prosperity, but don't use 4s, since they're considered unlucky. Emily tells us another way our mind plays tricks on us, as far as prices are concerned. So, when you see the 99 cents at the end of the price, your brain probably doesn't register it, so it's just the first one or two numbers of a price that tricks your mind.</p> <p>Emily talks about the number 3, including why sometimes you'll see it with a flat top. And Emily blows Kitty's mind when she talks about how to find out if number is divisible by three. We also get into how the number 3 has been important in a number of different religions, including the creator gods of Hyrule in The Legend of Zelda.</p> <p>Emily also goes into the history of the Rule of Three and how storytellers, comedians, advertisers, and public speakers use this Rule of Three as a way to their advantage. Next time you're looking at slogans or hearing a joke or listening to a speech, see if you can pick out the rule of three in use.</p> <p>James talks about unlucky 13 and how it's a global belief. Judas, Loki and the wicked fairy in the Grimms' version of "Sleeping Beauty." But, in reality, 13 is just the Jan Brady to the Marcia Brady No. 12. We also talk about the "bad" luck of those with 13 letters in their name -- and Emily makes quite an interesting sound when Christian Bale is mentioned. Also, we may be looking into joining The 13 Club, who tests the boundaries of the superstition surrounding the No. 13. However, the United States of America LOVES 13, and looking at a dollar bill, you will see evidence of that.</p> <p>And, the Queen makes an appearance to read lyrics to popular songs with numbers in the title for a music quiz for James and the ever-present-but-seldom-vocal Kitty to guess.

We told our bosses we had "Jerry Duty," and we completely indulged ourselves in this adventure. The particular episode we went to was the big reveal of <a href= "https://soundcloud.com/itsbeargrillz" data-cke-saved-href= "https://soundcloud.com/itsbeargrillz">Bear Grillz</a>' face -- an EDM DJ who performs in a bear costume. No, really. This is a thing. Of course, we saw cheating, fighting, and lots of name-calling.</p> <p>We do love Jerry Springer, especially his Dad jokes. And he knows his show is a guilty pleasure.</p> <p>Emily found out about the science behind guilty pleasures, and how it's applied to marketing and advertising, including why ads inducing guilt has the opposite effect.</p> <p>A very big thank you to Greg at <a href= "http://www.debtshepherd.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "http://www.debtshepherd.com/">Debt Shepherd</a> radio for our amazing promo!</p> <p>Now, we're not sure if he would, but unfortunately Jerry Springer cannot run for president. Find out how he went from being on the city council, to stepping down after being involved in a prostitution scandal, to becoming the mayor of Cincinnati and, finally, the host of The Jerry Springer Show for 25 years. And, if he wasn't awesome enough, he has a <a id= "yui_3_17_2_5_1462928873878_33940" href= "http://www.jerryspringer.com/" target="_blank" name= "yui_3_17_2_5_1462928873878_33940" data-cke-saved-href= "http://www.jerryspringer.com/">podcast</a>!</p> <p>We found out some of our listeners' musical guilty pleasures, including finding out who Stryper is -- none of which should be considered a guilty pleasure, according to us. In fact, it's really difficult to find our guilty pleasures since we don't have guilt about liking things like disco, Barry Manilow, and <a href= "http://www.amazon.com/Flavor-Love-Complete-Second-Season/dp/B000HT3862?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B000HT3862&linkCode=w00&linkId=HGJL37WRBEIVGBDZ&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "http://www.amazon.com/Flavor-Love-Complete-Second-Season/dp/B000HT3862?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B000HT3862&linkCode=w00&linkId=HGJL37WRBEIVGBDZ&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20"> Flavor of Love</a> -- Season 2 is the best because of <a href= "https://twitter.com/BeckyBuckwild?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "https://twitter.com/BeckyBuckwild?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor"> Becky Buckwild</a>!</p> <p>And, despite the over-dramatic theater people, Emily admits musical theater is one of her guilty pleasures -- and, although her admitting she hates "Rent," nothing will piss off theater people more than James' butchering of "Seasons of Love."</p> <p>We talk about why certain things can be considered guilty pleasures, while other areas of entertainment, like music, might not apply. And James tries to sing, again! He also talks about the term "guilty pleasure" and its use in history, and how it might have more relevant in modern times.</p> <p>Emily finds the top guilty pleasures of zodiac signs, and James goes from skeptical to a believer when Kitty walks down the stairs with Wendy's right as Emily tells James how Capricorns' guilty pleasure is fast food. And find out why the newspaper Emily worked for always had great horoscopes of Tauruses, and why the obituaries were arranged in order or hotness.</p> <p>James talks about reality television, and we find out about Emily's time with the WWE -- not as a wrestler, although she would be <a href="https://twitter.com/mrbriankendrick" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://twitter.com/mrbriankendrick">Brian Kendrick</a>'s valet wherever his future endeavors may have taken him. Emily is shocked to hear about some of the reality television shows around the world, including <a id= "yui_3_17_2_5_1462928873878_33886" href= "https://youtu.be/0sc6kuxHbDk" target="_blank" name= "yui_3_17_2_5_1462928873878_33886" data-cke-saved-href= "https://youtu.be/0sc6kuxHbDk">Susunu!

The basic answer is we worked together years ago and got along well because we were both snarky and sarcastic.</p> <p>James and Emily start off this episode joking around -- probably because of the amazing cheese and wine -- before delving into this week's topic: friendship! Find out the history of James' and Emily's friendship, including James becoming a wine person.</p> <p>Find out some fan theories about the show "<a href= "http://www.amazon.com/Friends-Complete-Jennifer-Aniston/dp/B00B1LN8WY?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B00B1LN8WY&linkCode=w00&linkId=6UT4JZKQE23TC4OO&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "http://www.amazon.com/Friends-Complete-Jennifer-Aniston/dp/B00B1LN8WY?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B00B1LN8WY&linkCode=w00&linkId=6UT4JZKQE23TC4OO&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20">Friends</a>," including calling attention to how unlikable Ross was and how this show was the beginning of the fall of civilization.</p> <p>James enlightens Emily about how guys' friendships work, including a particularly strange game they play that involves punching someone for looking at an "OK-symbol" made with the hands below the waist.</p> <p>Have you played this game? Is there a name for this? Let us know!</p> <p>If anyone wants to start a mild version of <a href= "http://www.amazon.com/Fight-Club-Novel-Chuck-Palahniuk/dp/0393327345?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=0393327345&linkCode=w00&linkId=OSZSL4VER232H2MB&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "http://www.amazon.com/Fight-Club-Novel-Chuck-Palahniuk/dp/0393327345?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=0393327345&linkCode=w00&linkId=OSZSL4VER232H2MB&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20"> Fight Club</a> with James, get in touch with us. We'll make that happen. Find out why all this play fighting is actually a good thing, and how male friendships, although more "violent" can actually be healthier than friendships among girls.</p> <p>Emily talks about the book, "How to Win Friends and Influence People," and how she uses the book to help identify bad marketers and psychopaths. We also find out that James has been trying to read the book since hearing how Charles Manson used the skills from the book, which he learned from the podcast, "<a href= "http://youmustrememberthispodcast.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://youmustrememberthispodcast.com">You Must Remember This</a>."</p> <p>Emily points out how the automatic DMs on Twitter are sometimes so transparent about using Dale Carnegie's 6 techniques to getting people to like you, but how awful it is when they use those techniques in a clumsy way, resulting in the exact opposite effect. We also realize we're pretty much terrible people because we're terrible at remembering names, and Emily makes a case for name tags.</p> <p>Emily talks about trying to explain to her 5-year-old why The Little Mermaid is a terrible role model for women because she changes herself for a guy she has a crush on. As much as she doesn't like Disney Princesses, she isn't all evil; in fact, she may just be a Brony or Pegasister. Oh yes, that's right -- we're talking "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" in this episode, including why it's an awesome show for young children, as well as adults. Believe it or not, Emily has watched the two documentaries about Bronies (<a href= "http://www.amazon.com/Bronies-Extremely-Unexpected-Adult-Little/dp/B00FCAK120?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B00FCAK120&linkCode=w00&linkId=IYRQYHJAYJIMCDAY&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "http://www.amazon.com/Bronies-Extremely-Unexpected-Adult-Little/dp/B00FCAK120?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B00FCAK120&linkCode=w00&linkId=IYRQYHJAYJIMCDAY&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20">Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans Of My Little Pony</a> and <a href= "http://www.amazon.com/Brony-Tale-Ashleigh-Ball/dp/B00KD64K66?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B00KD64K66&linkCode=w00&linkId=54Q4A46MGXNEXRWY&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "http://www.amazon.com/Brony-Tale-Ashleigh-Ball/dp/B00KD64K66?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B00KD64K66&linkCode=w00&linkId=54Q4A46MGXNEXRWY&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20"> A Brony Tale</a>, and gained more respect for Brony culture.<br /> But, then again, there's always Rule 34.</p> <p>James talks about how intimate friendship was in the past, including talking about some awkward friend photos. But, if you think Bromances are a new trend, you're wrong! And, we finally decide what we'll do should we ever invent a time machine. Emily also finds out what Log Cabin Republicans are.</p> <p>Emily talks about the two of the most famous sets of frenemies: Taylor Swift vs. Katy Perry and Nikola Tesla vs. Thomas Edison. We find out how these sets of once-friends became rivals -- and Emily even learns some science for the show!</p> <h2>Featured promos:</h2> <h2><a href="http://epicfilmguys.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://epicfilmguys.com">Epic Film Guys</a></h2> <h2><a href="http://ehappodcast.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://ehappodcast.com">Everyone Has a Podcast</a></h2> <h2>Find more great podcasts on Twitter by searching the hashtag <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/podernfamily" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "https://twitter.com/hashtag/podernfamily">#PodernFamily</a>!</h2> <p>Special thanks to our classy sponsors on <a href= "https://www.patreon.com/classypodcast?ty=h" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "https://www.patreon.com/classypodcast?ty=h">Patreon</a>: <a href="http://www.debtshepherd.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "http://www.debtshepherd.com/">Debt Shepherd</a>, <a href= "http://www.podunderground.net/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "http://www.podunderground.net/">PodUnderground</a> & <a href="https://twitter.com/jasonmbryant" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "https://twitter.com/jasonmbryant">Jason Bryant</a> from <a href="http://www.mattalkonline.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.mattalkonline.com/">Mat Talk Online</a> and the <a href= "http://www.mattalkonline.com/category/podcast/short-time/" target= "_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "http://www.mattalkonline.com/category/podcast/short-time/">Short Time Wrestling podcast</a>.</p> <p>Special thanks to Adam Centamore for his book, "<a href= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=claslittpodc-20&l=as2&o=1&a=1631590677" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=claslittpodc-20&l=as2&o=1&a=1631590677">Tasting Wine & Cheese: An Insider's Guide to Mastering the Principles of Pairing</a>," which inspires us to try new wine and cheese pairings in every episode!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_1_1462317465382_34258"> <strong>Cheers!</strong></p>

We also talk about the updates made to game, including changing cash to credit cards.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_11_1461855207133_66805">Even though Monopoly may be responsible for the loss of friendship, the game was responsible for helping British prisoners of war escape during World War II.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_11_1461855207133_89426">Emily freaks herself out researching Ouija boards, and she finds out the history, some precursors, and why mediums were more upset about Ouija boards at first than the church. Find out the reason for the Ouija board's name, how it was awarded a patent, and some of the other talking boards in existence.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_11_1461855207133_89427">So, what makes the Ouija board work? It seems plausible that it could be spirits ... until you blindfold users. <a href="https://youtu.be/PRo8TytvIDw" target= "_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://youtu.be/PRo8TytvIDw">Watch on YouTube.</a></p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_11_1461855207133_89428">We find out James' poo story, and you can hear more about poop stories from <a href= "http://www.offintheweeds.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.offintheweeds.com/">Off in the Weeds</a>. </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_11_1461855207133_87787">James gives us a game, Board Game or Racehorse? This is a tough, tough game, by the way! Emily even calls on Kitty to help her out. She even just starts guessing categories other than game or racehorse for a few of them. Because of this game, we decide we want to play <a href= "http://www.amazon.com/Fantasy-Flight-Games-TY05-Thats/dp/1616611715?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=1616611715&linkCode=w00&linkId=VX4X3XIDWZBD7E4E&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "http://www.amazon.com/Fantasy-Flight-Games-TY05-Thats/dp/1616611715?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=1616611715&linkCode=w00&linkId=VX4X3XIDWZBD7E4E&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20"> Hey, That's My Fish</a>!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_11_1461855207133_89429">Find out what porn and polio has to do with Candyland. And we finally found a topic in which James really couldn't find any large corporations to judge this week!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_11_1461855207133_93396">By the way, the Drunk History episode James refers to can be <a href= "http://www.cc.com/video-clips/r7ko1l/drunk-history-milton-bradley-and-the-checkered-game-of-life" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href= "http://www.cc.com/video-clips/r7ko1l/drunk-history-milton-bradley-and-the-checkered-game-of-life"> watched on CC.com</a>. But James does talk a bit about Milton Bradley and some of the innovations he brought to America.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_11_1461855207133_93384">And get the inside info on why we're an Explicit podcast. (It's James' fault. Clearly.) Apparently, we'll be planning a field trip to Springfield, Mass.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_11_1461855207133_93385">Emily gives a few fun facts about Scrabble, including a terrible French/Spanish/Gibberish pronunciation of the International Federation of Scrabble!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_11_1461855207133_92437">Thanks for your patience while Emily was feeling under the weather this week -- we tried to get this episode out as soon as possible. Actually, a HUGE thank you to her husband, Mark, who did a majority of editing for her while she had fever dreams that her cat was telepathically sending her a ideas for a book he wants to write.

Emily tries to sing the truth away as James tells her how alcohol is actually worse for one’s health than marijuana. However, James does talk about how, although marijuana is used for medicinal uses, it can still negatively affect minors with developing brains.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1461034241139_57423">Just to be clear, we’re not high — we’re old and lame. But, we do love potheads. </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1461034241139_57420">Emily talks about CBD, one of the other chemicals in cannabis, and how it’s legal and the benefits of it, as opposed to THC. And she also gets to talk a little about “<a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1461034241139_57444" href="http://www.amazon.com/The-Breakfast-Club-Molly-Ringwald/dp/B00RJXKUVA?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B00RJXKUVA&linkCode=w00&linkId=RY5TNEL4E4A5DAGJ&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.amazon.com/The-Breakfast-Club-Molly-Ringwald/dp/B00RJXKUVA?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B00RJXKUVA&linkCode=w00&linkId=RY5TNEL4E4A5DAGJ&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20">The Breakfast Club</a>” again!

Of those who have learned about it, many confuse it with hemp seed oil and most still wonder if it is really legal. The active ingredients in our products are not hemp seed oils and since all our products are made from northern Europe hemp extract, imported under U.S. Customs tariff codes, they most certainly are legal.”</p> <p style="text-align: right;"><em>Bernie Perry</em><br /><em>Restorative Botanicals</em></p> <p>James talks about historical figures who have been known to smoke weed in their lifetimes, including an appearance by a queen! And, if you’re familiar with George Washington’s weed habit mentioned in “<a href="http://www.amazon.com/Dazed-Confused-Widescreen-Flashback-Edition/dp/B00029RTAI?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B00029RTAI&linkCode=w00&linkId=SQFYNCEO2AFI2L7V&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.amazon.com/Dazed-Confused-Widescreen-Flashback-Edition/dp/B00029RTAI?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B00029RTAI&linkCode=w00&linkId=SQFYNCEO2AFI2L7V&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20">Dazed and Confused</a>,” you’ll be happy to know the character of Slater wasn’t that far off. If you great up in the ‘90s, you know George isn’t the only president who may or may not have smoked!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1461034241139_57273">Emily found herself in a rabbit hole after looking up fun facts about the cult classic “<a href="http://www.amazon.com/Reefer-Madness-Black-White-Beautifully/dp/B001BSBBDU?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B001BSBBDU&linkCode=w00&linkId=4ONOGC4AYM75QLRE&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.amazon.com/Reefer-Madness-Black-White-Beautifully/dp/B001BSBBDU?ie=UTF8&creativeASIN=B001BSBBDU&linkCode=w00&linkId=4ONOGC4AYM75QLRE&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20">Reefer Madness</a>,” including one of the stories the movie was based on, and how the film was part of a huge national propaganda campaign to demonize marijuana. The film, though, wasn’t the worst instance of anti-marijuana propaganda — you’ll hear about Harry Anslinger and his over-the-top tactics to illegalize the drug. And find out how marijuana relates to Harry Potter, in a tiny way!</p> <p>And James talks about the impact of the areas in the U.S. where recreational marijuana has been made legal.</p> <h2>Featured promos:</h2> <p><a href="http://prereclive.wix.com/podcast">Pre-Recorded Live</a></p> <p><a href="http://afterburn739.com/">Afterburn 739</a></p> <p>Find more great podcasts on Twitter by searching the hashtag <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/podernfamily" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/podernfamily">#PodernFamily</a>!</p> <p>Special thanks to our classy sponsors on <a href="https://www.patreon.com/classypodcast?ty=h" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://www.patreon.com/classypodcast?ty=h">Patreon</a>: <a href="http://www.debtshepherd.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.debtshepherd.com/">Debt Shepherd</a>, <a href="http://www.podunderground.net/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.podunderground.net/">PodUnderground</a> & <a href="https://twitter.com/jasonmbryant" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://twitter.com/jasonmbryant">Jason Bryant</a> from <a href="http://www.mattalkonline.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.mattalkonline.com/">Mat Talk Online</a> and the <a href="http://www.mattalkonline.com/category/podcast/short-time/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.mattalkonline.com/category/podcast/short-time/">Short Time Wrestling podcast</a>.</p> <p>We're also EXTREMELY excited to have been featured as part of "The Best of the Rest" in the post <a href="http://www.delightfulplanner.com/top-productivity-podcasts/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.delightfulplanner.com/top-productivity-podcasts/">Top Productivity Podcasts</a> on <a href="http://www.delightfulplanner.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.delightfulplanner.com/">The Delightful Planner</a>!

We also talk about the plot of an episode of "Martin" and alien smut. Even though James brings up a funny SNL skit from Steve Martin, he still won't admit that his King Tut song is funny -- <a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1460481272413_73514" href="http://classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/33" data-cke-saved-href="http://classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/33">listen to our Cheers to Comedy episode to hear more</a>.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1460481272413_71577">Emily gives some tips about properly maintaining your record collection while James takes notes.

Our cold opening clip will make sense later in the episode. We're joined by Adam and Bryon from <a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1459101126761_8059" href="http://ehappodcast.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://ehappodcast.com">Everyone Has a Podcast</a> this week, helping us talk all about comedy.</h2> <blockquote>This week's wine: Poggionotte Nero d'Avola from Sicily</blockquote> <blockquote>This week's cheese: Colby Jack</blockquote> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1459101126761_70020">We love learning about different cultures ... like Canadians! We'll be inviting ourselves Bryon's grandfather to try his wine ... and have awkward moments with parking meters.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1459101126761_70021">Find out some fun facts about Saturday Night Live, including which cast member was the first to welcome everyone with "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!" and which comedians were rejected after auditioning.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1459101126761_70022">We also talk <strong>a lot</strong> about different comedians, including Louis CK, Chevy Chase, Jerry Seinfeld, Sarah Silverman, Seth Rogan, David Spade, Don Rickles, Mitch Hedberg, Steve Martin, George Carlin, Lenny Bruce, and more!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1459101126761_70023">James and Adam start a bromance talking about comedians who aren't funny anymore and we all get nostalgically nostalgic about nostalgia. We also talk about aging comedians who still have what it takes to make us laugh, and comedians from the past who have pushed the envelope of social commentary.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1459101126761_70024">Emily talks to Adam and Bryon about comedians from Canada (and how the U.S. steals them for ourselves), and we get into a conversation about comedians from Boston. We also talk about comedians who just ... lose us.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1459101126761_70025">We also talk about the biological and physical reasons for laughing and why we need it for social situations, but laughter can also come at the wrong time, whether we want it or not.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1459101126761_70026">Also, you didn't ask for it, but we all do our best Cosby impressions -- and Adam clearly wins!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1459101126761_70027">Our show takes a very dark turn when we start talking about funeral laughs and how Bryon will have the last laugh when he dies because he's too tall to be buried easily, and Adam may enlist Emily (and her Thriller dance) to help him out at his funeral.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1459101126761_70028">Also, laughing at offensive or jokes about tragedy may mean you're actually more intelligent than those who are offended. Find out what made James so excited he knocks over a bottle of wine. (Thank goodness it was empty!)</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1459101126761_70029">And, think you can pass Emily's Twisted Comedy quiz?

Cheers to March Madness | Bracket Building, March Hares, NCAA Controversy (CLP-Ep. 32)
<h2 style="text-align: left;">This isn't just about basketball, although if you've made a bracket, you'll be happy to know you're probably doing better than Emily, who picked her winning team based on a comfy T-shirt.</h2> <p style="text-align: left;">This episode's wine: <a id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_87845" href="http://www.hesscollection.com/wine/north-coast-cabernet-sauvignon/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.hesscollection.com/wine/north-coast-cabernet-sauvignon/">Hess Select 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon</a> from Napa County, California</p> <p style="text-align: left;">This episode's cheese: Farmhouse English cheddar with Italian truffles (not chocolate truffles) and Wensleydale English Cheese</p> <blockquote> <p style="text-align: center;">Find us on <a href="https://www.snapchat.com/add/classypodcast">Snapchat</a> | <a href="twitter.com/classy_podcast">Twitter</a> | <a href="facebook.com/classylittlepodcast">Facebook</a></p> <p style="text-align: center;">Extras, including bloopers and extras from this episode, can be found at <a href="classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/32">classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/32</a></p> </blockquote> <p>While our main focus for this episode is about the NCAA, we make sure to throw a few segments in for those who are subjected to hearing office workers talk about scores, brackets, seeds, etc., without a care about what's going on.</p> <p>James gives us some of the history and explains rankings used in determining what colleges get into the coveted championships. Find out the likelihood (or lack thereof) you'll pick a perfect bracket. Hint: You have a better chance of winning Mega Millions and an even better chance of getting struck by lightning.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_92576">Emily gives us a drinking game that we highly encourage you not to play before operating heavy machinery or driving. In fact, just sit back, watch a few games with a glass of wine, and let the college students (who should be in class!) do the game playing.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_92577">To get completely away from basketball, Emily talks about <em>actual</em> March Madness, including the madness associated with March Hares, and goes off on a tangent about the history of Mad Hatters from her birthplace of Danbury, Conn. Lots of fun facts to take to your next tea party in Wonderland.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_92578">As customary for James, controversies surrounding the NCAA make their way onto the show, and Emily devises a plan for a VA-type establishment for college basketball players. (Emily for President 2016, perhaps?)</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_84741">Also, big shout out to Danbury, Conn., where Emily grew up, and she couldn't help going on a tangent to talk about the history of the city and how it relates to March Madness, in a very divergent way.</p> <p>Why do we get so obsessed with March Madness and rankings? Simply because, as James will tell you, ranking and judging things is fun! For another type of March Madness, a guitar shop in Maryland is currently having a competition, <a id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_85820" href="http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/dan-rodricks-blog/bal-another-kind-of-march-madness-best-guitar-riffs-of-all-time-20160312-story.html" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/dan-rodricks-blog/bal-another-kind-of-march-madness-best-guitar-riffs-of-all-time-20160312-story.html">ranking the greatest guitar riffs of all time</a>. </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_84742">Emily finds some fun facts about brackets, in general, including the fact Slate.com has brackets to rank <a id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_85849" href="http://www.slate.com/features/bracketologist/maritalarguments/index.html" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.slate.com/features/bracketologist/maritalarguments/index.html">marital spats</a>, <a id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_84744" href="http://www.slate.com/features/bracketologist/adslogans/index.html" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.slate.com/features/bracketologist/adslogans/index.html">ad slogans</a> and <a id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_85847" href="http://www.slate.com/features/bracketologist/filmdeath/index.html" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.slate.com/features/bracketologist/filmdeath/index.html">movie deaths</a>, for example.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_84745">Even if you're bracket has already been crushed when you listen to this, there's always next year -- especially for Emily, who finally knows what a Seed number means.</p> <h2 id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_85838">Featured promos:</h2> <h3 id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_86749"><a id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_86836" href="http://www.pureorgasmiclove.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.pureorgasmiclove.com/">Pure Orgasmic Love</a></h3> <h3 id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_87405" dir="ltr"><a href="http://afterburn739.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://afterburn739.com/">Afterburn 739</a></h3> <p id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_85836">Find more great podcasts on Twitter by searching the hashtag <a id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_87797" href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/podernfamily" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/podernfamily">#PodernFamily</a>!</p> <p>And, check out Emily's appearances on <a id="yui_3_17_2_7_1458682884513_24815" href="http://geekyogurtpc.podbean.com/e/classy-geek-comedy/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://geekyogurtpc.podbean.com/e/classy-geek-comedy/">The Geek Yogurt Podcast</a> and the <a href="http://worldofro.libsyn.com/podcast/wor-9-emily-of-classy-little-podcast" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://worldofro.libsyn.com/podcast/wor-9-emily-of-classy-little-podcast">World of Ro</a> podcast last week!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_85835">Special thanks to our classy sponsors on <a id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_85834" href="https://www.patreon.com/classypodcast?ty=h" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://www.patreon.com/classypodcast?ty=h">Patreon</a>: <a href="http://www.debtshepherd.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.debtshepherd.com/">Debt Shepherd</a>, <a href="http://www.podunderground.net/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.podunderground.net/">PodUnderground</a> & <a id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_93428" href="http://www.mattalkonline.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.mattalkonline.com/">Jason Bryant</a>.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_87823">Special thanks to Adam Centamore for his book, "<a id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_93415" href="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=claslittpodc-20&l=as2&o=1&a=1631590677" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=claslittpodc-20&l=as2&o=1&a=1631590677">Tasting Wine & Cheese: An Insider's Guide to Mastering the Principles of Pairing</a>," which inspires us to try new wine and cheese pairings in every episode!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_87824" style="text-align: center;"><strong id="yui_3_17_2_5_1458682884513_93426">Cheers!</strong></p>

Cheers to Mistakes | Movie Mistakes, Accidental Inventions, Bloopers (CLP-Ep. 31)
<h2 id="yui_3_17_2_1_1458105849920_21298">Humans are prone to mistakes, but as Bob Ross says, "There are no mistakes, just happy accidents!" Well, unless you count some of the biggest mistakes in history, which we talk about. But we also talk about why making mistakes is actually a good thing, plus we throw in some of our many bloopers <strong>you've never heard before</strong>.

Alexander Fleming, thanks for seeing that mold in a petri dish and deciding not to throw it out or put it in the fridge for someone else to worry about.</p> <p>Emily also points out a mistake made in "<a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/6305428425?creativeASIN=6305428425&linkCode=w00&linkId=EABCOYXEX4JZCYVI&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/6305428425?creativeASIN=6305428425&linkCode=w00&linkId=EABCOYXEX4JZCYVI&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20">Romy and Michele's High School Reunion</a>" about the origins of Post-Its.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_1_1458105849920_21379">Ever wonder just what erasers are and how they work?

Cheers to the Sun | Eclipses, Myths & Legends, The Woman Who Owns the Sun (CLP-Ep. 30)
<h2 id="yui_3_17_2_1_1457394808480_51864">Excited about the total solar eclipse this week? We are. In fact, we're turning this #WineWednesday into SUN-day, if you get our drift. This episode is all about that big ball of gas we know and love: The Sun!</h2> <blockquote id="yui_3_17_2_1_1457394808480_51865">This episode's wine: La Maialina 2014 Chianti, Italy</blockquote> <blockquote>This episode's cheese: Port Wine Cheddar</blockquote> <p> </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_1_1457394808480_53108">The sun isn't just for putting inspirational quotes over in Instagram photos. We talk about eclipses to celebrate the total solar eclipse on the other side of the world as this episode is coming out.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_1_1457394808480_53109">Find out how eclipses work (and thanks to Emily's teacher-friend Lenny for helping her find out the explanation in 8-year-old terms), and James tells us myths and legends from the past surrounding eclipses.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_1_1457394808480_53110">We're on the look-out for a professional frog imitator to show James to how properly croak like a frog.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_1_1457394808480_53135">Learn about the woman who owns the sun, and a potential money-making scheme to sue her for sunburns! Emily tries to correct James to be politically correct, but then finds out she wasn't as right as she thought she was. James gives us some fun sun facts and tells us why we can't go to the sun -- not even if it's winter or nighttime.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_1_1457394808480_53136"> Make sure you stick around to find out the best way to see a solar eclipse.

Emily also calls out her middle school crush who dropped her original Quackers in a mud puddle.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1456887344801_27614">While talking about some of the theories why we collect things, Emily gets on a tangent about state quarters and how they're like Pokemon. And, we find another reason Freud makes Emily roll her eyes.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1456887344801_27587">We also talk about collectors vs. hoarders, and Emily gives you some warning signs to look out for. And we talk about our personal collections we've had, and how Emily came to appreciate Al Gore's lock box idea.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1456887344801_52605">Thanks to Shane from <a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1456887344801_52608" href="https://rogueintel.com/shows/ntio" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://rogueintel.com/shows/ntio">Now That I'm Older</a>, Ro from The World of Ro, and Jen from Rebeat Magazine (and our Cheers to Glam Rock episode), who sent in their collections for us to talk about! </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1456887344801_52606">Want to test your Greek, Latin, Harry Potter and made-up words trivia? James puts Emily on the spot with these terms, but, luckily, you won't be quizzed. Whoever came up with these names really should have consulted us.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1456887344801_52609">Emily talks about some unusual collections, including the collections of Graham Barker, who has collected his belly button lint since 1984. And James tells us about celebrity collectors -- no, not the people who collect celebrities. Also, we discuss our plan to entice Tom Hanks to come on our show.

Cheers to Sleep | Analyzing Dreams, Gods of Sleep, Common Nightmares (CLP-Ep. 27)
<p>Put on your jammies and turn out the lights because this week, we're raising our glasses to the second best thing you can do in bed (the first being drinking wine, of course). We talk about the science of sleep, some historic sleepers, and those who dare to dream in this week's episode.</p> <p>This episode's wine: 2012<a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_7513" href="http://www.oakridgewinery.com/wine/oak-ridge-ancient-vine-zinfandel/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.oakridgewinery.com/wine/oak-ridge-ancient-vine-zinfandel/"> Oak Ridge Winery Zinfandel Ancient Vine Reserve</a>, California</p> <p>This episode's cheese: Capricho de Cabra & Bucheron (Montchevré)</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19364">We get worried that James is no longer allowed to buy wine, but he does find cheese from a region we think is 'Murica at first. And, if you're part of the goat cheese industry, Emily has quite the tagline for you!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19365">We find out how our ancestors probably slept, despite not having white noise machines or special mattresses. We also wonder what people actually <em>do</em> with fresh air. </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19366">James talks about inventors, scientists and pop culture figures who have made advances in their fields because of their dreams. Also, feel free to <a href="https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/87/Lockstitch.gif" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/87/Lockstitch.gif">watch the .GIF</a> that fascinated Emily for about 20 minutes. She also comes up with three puns in a row! Possibly a personal best.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19306">We talk etymology, Greek and Roman deities of sleep, and Michael Stipe, of course. And we get into theological discussions about dreams from the bible. Emily also goes into her Broadway knowledge, somehow. </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19307">After 26 episodes, Emily finally introduces us to her hatred of Disney. (Thank you to <a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19310" href="http://musicformakers.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://musicformakers.com/">Music for Makers</a> for the rant music!) Needless to say, we may never have a Cheers to Disney. Sorry.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19308">James changes gears to talk about theories of why we sleep, and why pulling an all-nighter is actually worse for studying than getting some sleep. </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19391">Do you have any of the most common nightmares? Do you agree with James' skepticism about analyzing what these dreams mean? We'd love to hear from you!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19392">Emily shares a tip for getting yourself out of a nightmare. And, lucky for you, we cut out a lot of our conversations about dreams we've had, since there are many out there who do not care about hearing the dreams of others.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19393">We find out about what our brain is doing when we're dreaming, including going into the mode of "fighting or flighting," according to James. We also share some tips for falling asleep (hint, it doesn't involve counting sheep).</p> <h2 id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19394">Featured promos:</h2> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19395"><a href="http://www.triviageeksshow.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.triviageeksshow.com/">Trivia Geeks</a></p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19396"><a href="http://geekyogurtpc.podbean.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://geekyogurtpc.podbean.com/">Geek Yogurt Podcast</a></p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19397">Find more great podcasts on Twitter by searching the hashtag <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/podernfamily" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/podernfamily">#PodernFamily</a> on Twitter!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19398">Special thanks to our classy sponsors on <a href="https://www.patreon.com/classypodcast?ty=h" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://www.patreon.com/classypodcast?ty=h">Patreon</a>: <a href="http://www.debtshepherd.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.debtshepherd.com/">Debt Shepherd</a> & <a href="http://www.podunderground.net/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.podunderground.net/">PodUnderground</a></p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19399">Special thanks to Adam Centamore for his book, "<a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_21077" href="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=claslittpodc-20&l=as2&o=1&a=1631590677" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=claslittpodc-20&l=as2&o=1&a=1631590677">Tasting Wine & Cheese: An Insider's Guide to Mastering the Principles of Pairing</a>," which inspires us to try new wine and cheese pairings in every episode!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_19400" class="text-align-center"><strong id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455691711139_21129">Cheers!</strong></p> <p class="text-align-center"><strong>Visit our website at <a href="classylittlepodcast.com">classylittlepodcast.com</a> for more information!</strong></p>

Cheers to Dating | Valentine's Day History, Tinder, Creepy Romantic Comedies (CLP-Ep. 26)
<h2 id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_6174">Looking for a date this Valentine's Day? We're here for you! We offer you wine, cheese, and no obligation to call us the next day. So, stick us in your earbuds and let us whisper sweet nothings into your ears as we serenade you with the history of Valentine's Day, Tinder tips, first-date etiquette and why John Cusack standing outside your house at 5 a.m. is actually kind of creepy.</h2> <blockquote id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_6177">This episode's wine: <a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_30687" href="http://weibel.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://weibel.com/">Weibel Family</a> Peach Flavored Sparkling Wine<br />This episode's cheese: St. Angel Triple Cream Brie and Mascarpone (the Vermont pronunciation)</blockquote> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_6601">Emily is particularly punchy in this episode, in case you can't tell! It may have been the sparkling peach wine or her questioning her decisions that led to her going to Whole Foods on a Saturday for fancy cheese.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_10950">For our listeners, we cut out about 10 minutes of orgasm sounds we had while eating from our amazing Valentine's Day spread. You're welcome!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_11457">Emily talks about the history of Valentine's Day, including our favorite theme of Christians taking over Pagan holidays. Aside from the Roman version of "Seven Minutes in Heaven," let's just be happy we're living in modern times.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_12061">James does his best to try a little <a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_13091" href="http://www.gotinder.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.gotinder.com/">Tinder</a>-ness by talking about one of the most popular dating Apps of the moment. By the way, if you're looking for James on Tinder, he is the guy with the profile picture of pie!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_15811">We also put out a call to action for listeners to send us pictures of their romantic nights listening to our podcast! DO IT!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_15812">James and Emily also discuss some first-date etiquette ... or, at least the fake etiquette you should attempt. James gets some questions answered about what women really want on a date. Emily gets up on her feminist soapbox, but then gets right back down if the option of eating bon-bons in flattering skirts comes up.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_23482">Emily gives some tips from the book, "He's Just Not That Into You." James doesn't quite understand why women need a book for this, but that's exactly why women need this book! If a guy isn't into you, don't waste your time.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_23483">James talks about the benefits of remaining single, some ignoring Emily professing her love for pineapple and mascarpone. And the Coke vs. Pepsi fight continues!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_25241">Emily gets to vent about her hatred of Disney princess movies! She also talks about things in romantic movies that are actually really creepy in real life, including the idea of Woody Allen as attractive. If a guy shows up to your house with a boom box ... be careful! Red flag! No woman actually wants the kinds of romantic gestures shown in movies.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_28218">In James' words, "Just be cool, man."</p> <h2 id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_6176">Featured promos:</h2> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_16724" dir="ltr"><a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_18628" href="http://patandjason.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://patandjason.com/">Pat and Jason Have a Podcast</a></p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_19185" dir="ltr"><a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_19246" href="https://soundcloud.com/justjohn-podcast" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://soundcloud.com/justjohn-podcast">The Just John Podcast</a></p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_19274">Find more great podcasts on Twitter by searching the hashtag <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/podernfamily" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/podernfamily">#PodernFamily</a> on Twitter!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_14225">Special thanks to Adam Centamore for his book, "<a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_14224" href="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=claslittpodc-20&l=as2&o=1&a=1631590677" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=claslittpodc-20&l=as2&o=1&a=1631590677">Tasting Wine & Cheese: An Insider's Guide to Mastering the Principles of Pairing</a>," which inspires us to try new wine and cheese pairings in every episode!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_28230"><strong id="yui_3_17_2_4_1455089315739_28232">Cheers!</strong></p>

We feel like little bitches after learning the stories of these guys' awesomeness. Find out which one ate peanuts and smoked a cigar while having sex, which one gave a two-hour speech instead of going to the hospital after getting shot, and which one walked on the fucking moon! Plus, learn why you should never tell Buzz Aldrin he didn't land on the moon.</p> </div> </div> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1454454728804_54688">Mark shares his Hot-Cute-Beautiful Triangle theory with the world. (See the picture on our website, <a href="http://classylittlepodcast.com">classylittlepodcast.com</a>.) The guys then decide to see how the theory plays out by looking at a list of celebrities, all in the name of science. Do you agree with James' and Mark's rankings? (And will Emily allow Mark and James to podcast together again?)</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1454454728804_53673">Emily comes on to quiz the guys on female terms to hear their best guesses. While James makes educated guesses, Mark assumes everything is a tampon ... and he is wrong every time. James also can't hear a word that contains "gonad" without laughing like a 12-year-old.</p> <p>Hope you enjoy the punk-rock version of our theme song, made specially for this episode.</p> <h2 id="yui_3_17_2_11_1454454728804_2396">Featured promos:</h2> <p id="yui_3_17_2_11_1454454728804_2398"><a id="yui_3_17_2_11_1454454728804_2414" href="http://www.fyfc.ca/category/fyfcast/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.fyfc.ca/category/fyfcast/">FYFCast</a></p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_11_1454454728804_2400"><a id="yui_3_17_2_11_1454454728804_2412" href="http://passersbypodcast.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://passersbypodcast.com/">Passers-by Podcast</a></p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_11_1454454728804_2317" class="text-align-center"><strong id="yui_3_17_2_11_1454454728804_2410">Cheers!</strong></p>

Cheers to Glam Rock | David Bowie, Androgynous Fashion, Music History (CLP-Ep. 23)

We find out about the fashion, the trends, the culture and society during the Glam Rock era. Plus, we talk to Jen Cunningham from <a href="http://rebeatmag.com/" target="_blank">Rebeat</a> magazine about the movie, "Velvet Goldmine."</h2> <blockquote>This episode's wine: <a href="http://www.cocobonwines.com/" target="_blank">Cocobon Wines</a> 2013 Red Blend from California</blockquote> <blockquote>This episode's cheese: Havarti</blockquote> </div> </div> <div id="block-yui_3_17_2_6_1453261220706_31674" class="sqs-block html-block sqs-block-html" data-block-type="2"> <div class="sqs-block-content"> <p id="yui_3_17_2_6_1453261220706_28359">Flashback to the early '70s when Glam Rock emerged in the U.K., and we take a look at that small part of music history that still impacts us today.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_6_1453261220706_28360">We talk about the trends associated with Glam Rock with the stage personas and theatrics associated with it. And, if you look up T. Rex songs on Google, you may find songs about dinosaurs, but don't be fooled! We find out about Glam Rock's inception with Marc Bolan, followed by David Bowie and more.</p> </div> </div> <div id="block-yui_3_17_2_6_1453261220706_27569" class="sqs-block html-block sqs-block-html" data-block-type="2"> <div id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2460" class="sqs-block-content"> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2465">No Glam Rock conversation would be complete without at least mentioning the outrageous styles in fashion and accessories, and how some styles remained current throughout the '80s, and even show up today. There's even a connection between Glam Rock and Hair Metal we explore. Not to mention how rockers could wear make-up, like Guy-liner and Man-scara, despite how bad-ass these guys are.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2459">Emily fawns over Bret Michaels, The Monkees, Ewan McGregor, and, of course, Christian Bale in this episode. Sigh!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2462">We even mention the Queen (the British monarch, not the band), watching androgynous teens walking down the street, confused as to whether they're girls or boys. Emily also makes the connection between Glam Rock style and some of the wrestling personas of the '80s.</p> <p>James thanks glam rock for bringing us rock bands with strong front men, who put on incredible shows and act larger than life when they're performing.</p> </div> </div> <div id="block-yui_3_17_2_12_1453229243122_7779" class="sqs-block html-block sqs-block-html" data-block-type="2"> <div id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2424" class="sqs-block-content"> <p>We also got to talk to <strong>Jen</strong> from <strong><a href="http://www.rebeatmag.com/" target="_blank">Rebeat</a></strong> digital blog/magazine all about the movie "<a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004U7MR4G?creativeASIN=B004U7MR4G&linkCode=w00&linkId=B5LSTQJVEQ5XGKPS&ref_=as_sl_pc_qf_sp_asin_til&tag=claslittpodc-20" target="_blank">Velvet Goldmine</a>," which the director calls a "love letter to Glam Rock."</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2438">Jen and Emily warn British men who are 69 to go get checked out, because we can only take so many deaths of beloved Brits in one year.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2426">Want to read more from Rebeat?

James gives us a quick history of his impact on music, including changing himself and trying new styles of music, and finally becoming a legend. James even compares Bowie to his ultimate hero: Shaq. (We're pretty sure he listens!)</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2314">Although he's made his very few mistakes, like BowieNet and his poor name choices before settling on David Bowie, he's still one of the greatest musicians in our lifetime, and he continues to influence not only music, but culture and even acceptance.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2395">Emily talks about Glam Rock influenced-bands and musicians today, including Kesha and Lady Gaga. James gets to tell us about his cousin's Gary Glitter cover band, Terry Tinsel. And we spend maybe a little too long looking at pictures of Gary Glitter on Google, trying to understand the star quality of his "dystopian Elvis" look. James realizes there's no redeeming Gary Glitter, no matter how hard he tries.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2397">Featured promos:</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2393"><a id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2392" href="http://8oclockcomics.moonfruit.com/highly-recommended-show/4590462544" target="_blank">The Highly Recommended Show</a></p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2401"><a href="https://soundcloud.com/thenickscast" target="_blank">The Nickscast</a></p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2403">Special thanks to Adam Centamore for his book, "<a id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2405" href="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=claslittpodc-20&l=as2&o=1&a=1631590677" target="_blank">Tasting Wine & Cheese: An Insider's Guide to Mastering the Principles of Pairing</a>," which inspires us to try new wine and cheese pairings in every episode!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2319" class="text-align-center"><strong id="yui_3_17_2_7_1453261220706_2415">Cheers!</strong></p>

All of these make Emily's preference for Diet Mountain Dew sound delicious!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_6_1452668559673_10990">Dr Pepper, despite Emily's mom telling her it was carbonated prune juice, is pretty hard to pinpoint the origin or even the flavors in it. We also require our sodas to have a PhD! And we discuss potentially trying Hot Dr Pepper.</p> <p>Emily goes on a little rant about how terrible root beer is. So, of course, she decided to research it. And, lo and behold, after looking up the original flavors, she now hates it more than she originally did.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_6_1452668559673_11024">Even though James promised us he wouldn't make us feel bad about consumerism, he finds a way to do it! (But, we can always make James feel bad about his pronunciation.) He doesn't stop at soda, we also give you some guilt about rum and maybe rainbows!</p> <p>Featured promos:</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_6_1452668559673_11023"><a href="http://ehappodcast.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://ehappodcast.com">Everyone Has A Podcast</a></p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_6_1452668559673_10989"><a href="http://thecountdownmoviesandtv.podomatic.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://thecountdownmoviesandtv.podomatic.com/">The Countdown Podcast</a></p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_6_1452668559673_11025"><a href="http://rogueintel.com/shows/prime" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://rogueintel.com/shows/prime">The Prime Podcast</a></p> <p>See show notes and extras at our website, <a href="http://www.classylittlepodcast.com">www.classylittlepodcast.com</a>.</p>

Cheers to Resolutions | Goal-Setting, Avoiding Temptation, Most Popular Resolutions (CLP-Ep. 21)
<p><strong><em>A HUGE thank you to Adam from EHAP - Everyone Has a Podcast for designing our new cover art! Little Man has never looked classier! We forgot to mention this in the episode, but we'll make up for it in the next one!</em></strong></p> <h2 id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_41413">New year, new you? Or new year, new you ... until mid-February? We take a look at the history of setting New Year's Resolutions, most popular goals, why they don't work and how to make them stick. We also celebrate the new year with a new and improved theme song!</h2> <p>This episode's wine: <a id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_56479" href="http://www.blancdebleu.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.blancdebleu.com/">Blanc de Bleu sparkling Chardonnay with blueberry</a></p> <p>This episode's cheese: Aged sharp white cheddar</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_43119">We turn 21 in this episode! Our podcast is finally old enough to drink, we guess!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_43120">Aside from getting so excited over blue bubbly, we're stoked to be back! And we dive right in with our episode celebrating the promises we make (and break) to ourselves every year!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_43121">Congratulations to our listener Hilary who won our "Tasting Wine & Cheese" giveaway!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_43122">Emily lists the top New Year's Resolutions and breaks them down by gender, geography, and generation. She also takes this time to vent her frustrations at stereotypical young millennials, and lists the most broken resolutions and why they don't work.</p> <p>By the way, our drinking game for this episode is the phrase "YOLO" because we say it quite frequently, but always with a deep hatred for it. If you'd like some better words, check out our episode, <a id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_42504" href="http://www.classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/02" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/02">Cheers to Words and Phrases</a>!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_42506">Why do we make resolutions? Clearly to torture ourselves! James gives us the actual history behind the tradition and gets into the science behind why resolutions are broken so often.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_43171">We also come up with James' new pick-up line: giving a woman his numbers, as well as a pie. Look for him on Tinder -- he'll be the one with a picture of a pie.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_43172">Why did Emily read the Wikipedia article about Star Wars: The Force Awakens before going to see the movie? She'll justify it -- go ahead and send us your gripes!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_42507">She also gives a quick tip for saving some money over the year. And we get into another discussion about vaping (Check out our <a href="http://www.classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/08" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/08">Cheers to Vaping</a> episode!)</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_43173">James gives us some tips and tricks for accomplishing your goals. Emily's advice is if you don't try, you won't fail! And, you people on Facebook, you know who you are, posting about your gym experience right now -- talk to us in March!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_43174">See the marshmallow test he talks about in our <a href="http://www.classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/21">show notes</a>!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_38101">And, James tells us why "Bridget Jones's Diary" is a better movie than he expected. And now the world knows!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_34737">Emily talks about the trend of picking a word or a few words to focus on for the year instead of making a resolution. You can find out more information about this idea by listening to <a id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_55601" href="http://theproductivewoman.com/focus-on-building-the-life-you-want-tpw031/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://theproductivewoman.com/focus-on-building-the-life-you-want-tpw031/">episode 31</a> of <a id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_54939" href="http://theproductivewoman.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://theproductivewoman.com">The Productive Woman</a> podcast.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_34736">James debunks the myth that it takes 21 days for something to become a habit.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1452067221476_34732">We talk about our resolutions, and we'd love to hear yours!

Just remember Emily's need to make puns whenever she can, no matter how stretched they may be: "When life hands you Clemens, make Clemenade!"</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1449045207299_23808">James gives us a quick bio of Clemens/Twain, including the surprising fact he left school in fifth grade, and his dream of being a riverboat captain. If there were such a thing as a hobo apprenticeship, James would be learning him (yes, "learning him") how to tie a bindle as we speak!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1449045207299_20681">Side note: Can you catch the "<a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1449045207299_33974" href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000JJ3Y78?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creativeASIN=B000JJ3Y78&linkCode=xm2&tag=claslittpodc-20" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000JJ3Y78?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creativeASIN=B000JJ3Y78&linkCode=xm2&tag=claslittpodc-20">Arrested Development</a>" reference we make?</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1449045207299_20652">Did Mark Twain find his wife through old-timey Tinder?

And James does the absolute worst imitation of the Queen.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1449045207299_26863">Emily finally finds a word she won't say on the podcast while talking about the controversy over "<a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1449045207299_34183" href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1499296983?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creativeASIN=1499296983&linkCode=xm2&tag=claslittpodc-20" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1499296983?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creativeASIN=1499296983&linkCode=xm2&tag=claslittpodc-20">The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn</a>."</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1449045207299_26841">Flippant, irreverent and trashy <span id="yui_3_17_2_4_1449045207299_29311">—</span> think we're talking about "Jersey Shore"?

Cheers to Thanksgiving Food (CLP-Ep. 18)
<p>Sorry to our international listeners, but we raise our glasses to good ol' American turkey, cranberry sauce and pie in this episode. We also find out some myths surrounding the holiday, including why those pictures you colored in kindergarten were full of lies!</p> <p>This episode's wine: Marquis de la Tour Brut<br />This episode's cheese: Goat Cheese with Cranberries and Cinnamon (can be eaten right off the knife!)</p> <p><br />Although James doesn't remember what Brut means, he does a pretty good imitation of the French language when introducing the wine!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_2_1448417599140_2390">Find out how you can <a id="yui_3_17_2_2_1448417599140_2392" href="http://www.classylittlepodcast.com/giveaway">win your own copy of Adam Centamore's book, "Tasting Wine & Cheese,"</a> which we use on a regular basis as the inspiration for our wine and cheese pairings for the podcast. This would make the perfect gift for any wine and cheese lover, or keep it for yourself!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_2_1448417599140_2387">Emily dispells some myths about the first Thanksgiving, including the fact that pilgrims did not, in fact, wear buckles, despite what you may have drawn in kindergarten.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1448410374695_28429">We talk about "Alice's Restaurant," Arlo Guthrie's 18-minute semi-autobiographical song. And James dispels the myths about Tryptophan in turkey making us tired and how it's not quite the roofie of the poultry world people perceive it to be. The fact that you have to be around family is more exhausting than the turkey.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1448410374695_26676">And, we tell you why waiting for the plastic thermometer to pop up is not the best indicator that your turkey's done. Also, please don't try top fry your turkey indoors!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1448410374695_26677">Emily finds what might be the greatest method to cooking turkey called spatchcocking -- one of the best words in the world, and we can't stop saying spatchcock! If any of our listeners have spatchcocked their turkey, please send us pictures! And tell us how delicious it was!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1448410374695_26678">And our immature minds can't even deal with the word spatchcock, as you can tell!</p> <p>Does your family have any Thanksgiving foods others don't have, like sauerkraut or crab? And we question where the cranberry sauce came from to go with Thanksgiving dinner. And Emily suggests ways to use the leftover cranberry sauce.</p> <div id="block-yui_3_17_2_4_1448410374695_32202" class="sqs-block html-block sqs-block-html" data-block-type="2"> <div id="yui_3_17_2_2_1448417599140_2448" class="sqs-block-content"> <p id="yui_3_17_2_2_1448417599140_2450">And we are obsessed with Little Man's obsession with his new bag, if you couldn't tell!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_2_1448417599140_2465">Emily gets to rant about how stupid turkeys are and how great they are to eat. We can all agree how ugly and scary turkeys are, right? And how Charles Dickens made turkey a Christmas tradition, as well. (Plus, how Scrooge in the movies makes quite a Dick-ens move!)</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_2_1448417599140_2492">We also discuss the inalienable rights of truth, liberty and the pursuit of pie.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_2_1448417599140_2502">Find out about Sarah Josepha Buell Hale and how awesome she was for giving us Thanksgiving, as well as "Mary Had A Little Lamb." We also want Bank Holidays like Europe! We just want days off without people on Facebook making us feel guilty.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_2_1448417599140_2504">And we talk about what we're thankful for, including YOU! And also Mark and Kitty, our helpful friends who make the podcast possible! And, especially wine and cheese, and Adam Centamore's book!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_2_1448417599140_2506">We're also thankful for cats who wear bow ties! </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_2_1448417599140_2516"><strong id="yui_3_17_2_2_1448417599140_2519"><a id="yui_3_17_2_2_1448417599140_2518" href="http://cravingboston.wgbh.org/article/20151107/wine-cheese-course-fit-thanksgiving" target="_blank">Check out Adam Centamore's recommendations for wine and cheese for Thanksgiving!</a></strong></p> <h2>Special Thanks</h2> </div> </div> <div id="block-yui_3_17_2_1_1447439815698_28489" class="sqs-block code-block sqs-block-code" data-block-type="23"> <div id="yui_3_17_2_2_1448417599140_2529" class="sqs-block-content">Special thanks to Adam Centamore for his book, "<a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1631590677/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=1631590677&linkCode=as2&tag=claslittpodc-20&linkId=QH6LQSVAPGMVSSQN" rel="nofollow">Tasting Wine and Cheese: An Insider's Guide to Mastering the Principles of Pairing" Tasting Wine & Cheese</a><img src="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/ir?t=claslittpodc-20&l=as2&o=1&a=1631590677" alt="" width="1" height="1" border="0" />," which we'll be using for our wine and cheese pairing for the next few episodes!</div> </div>

Cheers to Introverts (CLP-Ep. 17)
<p>This week we put away our party hats and social butterfly personalities and tip our glasses to that often-misunderstood and maligned tribe who represents about one third of all people … introverts!</p> <p>This episode's wine: Big House Pinot Evil Pinot Noir from California<br />This episode's cheese: Colby Jack</p> <p> </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1447815608292_16623">Emily and James explore how taking a bag of wine from a box of wine is like giving birth to a baby calf.<br /> <br />Emily tells us all about the Myers Briggs personality, the four characterizations within and profile and her self-diagnosis as an introverted, intuitive, thinking judgmental person — we’re totally shocked to learn Emily is judgmental!!<br />  <br />James questions the validity of the test—ever the cynic—and Emily praises the other INTJs — in fiction, most of who happen to by psychopathic murderous geniuses, which doesn’t really dissuade Emily from admiring them.<br /> <br />James talks about how introverts are demonized a bit, and the idea that intorverts are energized by solitary creative pursuits, and strained by social encounters and extroverts are energized by social encounters.<br /> <br />We learn about introverts need to sit quietly and process information and think and learn, and the exhausting exercise of socializing on introverts.<br /> <br />Emily’s surprised her daugheter doesn’t appear to be an introvert aften spending so many hours staring up at the ceiling fan, without interest in any other subject.<br /> <br />Children have the instinct for extroversion, until the world sets upon them and teacher them to fear other people’s judgments.<br /> <br />Emily tells us about ambiverts, who are estimated to be up to 2/3 of all people. They fall on the spectrum between introverts and extraverts, and they flip back and forth between the two worlds. But not Donald Trump, who we perceive as 100 percent extrovert.<br /> <br />Wine discounts everything we’ve said about the introvert.<br /> <br />Emily lets us know about the origins of ther maiden name, Peck, who liked to live on the peak of mountains and avoid socializing for several millennia, other than for procreating.<br /> <br />James goes off an a tangent about his love of Katharine Hepburn and Meryl Streep and how, the mispercetions people have because of his affinity for those fine actresses and their drunkenss—Katharine, not Meryl. Also, we love You Must Remember This!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1447815608292_16622">Can you be heterosexual and love Katharine Hepburn and the Jets?<br /> <br />James tells us about Susan Cain and her book and TED talk about the strength and value of introverts and society tries to subvert their instincts and their thoughtfulness.<br /> <br />Intorverts, she said, often give in to society’s pressure to be overly social and allow their instincts to be overruled. And all the great religious figures have found great wisdom in introversion and solitude.<br /> <br />We talk about the dangers of open office spaces — one of the many pitfall of gearing a world toward extroverts, and the perks of being an introvert, despite the push of the value extroverts.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1447815608292_17236">Resting bitch face sucks if you're also an introvert. But marketers and advertisers are trying to get into our psyche to get to introverts, especially when ads invade our personal spaces.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1447815608292_17237">Next time you see an ad on the door of a bathroom stall, know it's geared toward introverts. Also, the majority of us take our phones into the bathroom. Marketers, leave us alone!</p> <p>Another perk of being an introvert is having a close-knit group of friends, as opposed to a huge number of friends.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1447815608292_17240">Also, small talk sucks. Just, stop talking to introverts about the weather!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1447815608292_17239">And, James wants to end on himself by talking about narcissistic introverts. He also wants to be eaten by Hannibal Lecter, who is a loveable evil genius, in a way. James' fan fiction would be about Hannibal Lecter and Clarice turning into hobos.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_4_1447815608292_18135"><a id="yui_3_17_2_4_1447815608292_18450" href="http://mentalfloss.com/uk/movies/27139/the-hidden-meaning-of-the-silence-of-the-lambs-iconic-line" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://mentalfloss.com/uk/movies/27139/the-hidden-meaning-of-the-silence-of-the-lambs-iconic-line">Also, fava beans and Chianti would not be a good combination for someone like Hannibal Lecter.</a> Just sayin'.</p> <p>Visit our website at <a href="http://www.classylittlepodcast.com">www.classylittlepodcast.com</a> for show notes and extras!</p> <p>Cheers!</p>

Cheers to Coffee (CLP-Ep. 16)
<p>Get your controversial red Starbucks cups, dump out the PSL, and fill it up with wine as we delve into the history, science and fun facts about java, joe, dirt, mud, wakey juice, morning jolt or C8H10NN4O2!</p> <p> </p> <p>This episode's wine: Veijo Feo 2012 Carménère from Baeza Family Cellars in Chile<br />This episode's cheese: Tallegio</p> <p><br />James was especially excited about this topic, but not as excited as some fanatics. It's hard to believe there are people out there crazier than James, who grinds his own beans and uses a French press.</p> <p> </p> <p>We also question if we're actually old enough to drink coffee. James gives us some of the theories about its origin, in addition to a tour of coffee throughout the ages, from the penguins of Yemen to the Incest commercial in 2009.</p> <p> </p> <p>And, despite being ubiquitous in the '90s, as well as featured in "Friends," "Seinfeld" and "Frasier," coffeehouses were even more popular in 17th century Europe and were the hotbeds for news, philosophy and revolutions.</p> <p> </p> <p>And, even though we recorded this episode before the red cup "controversy" became the big news this week, we still made sure Starbucks and the Pumpkin Spice Latte were mentioned ... along with some grumbles from Emily. And, if you listen to Good Job, Brain!, one of our favorite trivia podcasts, you would already know the two-tailed mermaid on the coffee cup is called a Melusine.</p> <p> </p> <p>James somehow holds himself back from his usual rant about how our consumer-driven lives are the worst thing to happen to humanity. But, he doesn't hold back when it comes to criticizing 1950s commercials, in which wives are chastised by their husbands for making bad coffee.</p> <p> </p> <p>And, for those who like reading too much into the acting in commercials, James walks us through the questionable incestuous relationship depicted in this 2009 Folgers commercial.</p> <p> </p> <p>We don't want you to think all we talk about on this podcast is incest, even though we mentioned it before in our Cheers to Back to the Future episode. But it's weird how it keeps coming up. (Although Emily doesn't remember much about that episode -- Thanks, Chambong!)</p> <p> </p> <p>But, just remember these parting words from James: "Not all coffee is incestuous."<br />Go ahead, Tweet that quote so others wonder what you're listning to!<br />Special Thanks</p> <p> </p> <p>Special thanks to Adam Centamore for his book, "Tasting Wine & Cheese," which we used for this episode and we'll be using for our wine and cheese pairings for the next few episodes!</p> <p> </p> <p>Listen/subscribe/leave a review on <a href="http://www.classylittlepodcast.com/iTunes">iTunes</a>, Stitcher, Spreaker, Overcast.</p> <p>Visit our website at <a href="http://www.classylittlepodcast.com">www.classylittlepodcast.com</a> for show notes and extras!</p> <p> </p> <p>Cheers!</p>

We also sympathize with those who have to commute daily from King's Cross, especially if their trains are on Platforms 9 or 10.</div> <div> </div> </div> <div id="block-yui_3_17_2_4_1446595076629_32191" data-block-type="2"> <div id="yui_3_17_2_7_1446595076629_2428"> <p id="yui_3_17_2_1_1446610483920_21256">While we don't get into the book or movie, "Trainspotting," we do talk about those who trainspot as a hobby, known as railfans. We dive into the different types, from those who record different trains, to those who ride a particular train route, to those who explore abandoned train stations. We also look at the connection between children with autism and the fascination with trains.</p> <p> </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_1_1446610483920_21327">James talks about the psychology of train etiquette and the dynamic of ignoring the same people you see every day. (We didn't even acknowledge the fact that this may even be a Northeastern thing, because once you leave this area of the country, people are much friendlier.)</p> <p> </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_1_1446610483920_21335">James decides to throw a party for his anonymous train friends and talks about the social dynamics of train seating.

But, then again, he never gives up the chance to talk about his penis. Yes, somehow we work this tangent into train research.</p> <p> </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_1_1446610483920_21352">Emily gets the songs "Cocaine" and "Casey Jones" confused as James tells the story of the real Casey Jones -- not the be confused with Stacy Jones from the original "Shining Time Station."</p> <p> </p> </div> </div> <div id="block-yui_3_17_2_4_1446595076629_14764" data-block-type="2"> <div id="yui_3_17_2_7_1446595076629_2442"> <p id="yui_3_17_2_7_1446595076629_2441">Emily talks about <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ticket-to-ride-pocket/id471857988?mt=8" target="_blank">Ticket to Ride</a>, Wil Wheaton's <a href="http://geekandsundry.com/shows/tabletop/" target="_blank">Tabletop</a> web show, and James asks for FDA-approved hookers when we talk about how John Lennon may or may not have lovingly called the street women of Hamburg Tickets to Ride.</p> <p> </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_1_1446610483920_21360">Emily talks about <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ticket-to-ride-pocket/id471857988?mt=8" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ticket-to-ride-pocket/id471857988?mt=8">Ticket to Ride</a>, Wil Wheaton's <a href="http://geekandsundry.com/shows/tabletop/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://geekandsundry.com/shows/tabletop/">Tabletop</a> web show, and James asks for FDA-approved hookers when we talk about how John Lennon may or may not have lovingly called the street women of Hamburg Tickets to Ride.</p> <p> </p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_1_1446610483920_21398">Somehow, we get on the subject of the evolution of the poop train and the old Pace <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeovVoYSGdg" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeovVoYSGdg">salsa commercials</a>.

Cheers to Breakfast Cereal (CLP-Ep.14)
<p>This episode stays crunchy in milk and is part of a balanced breakfast! Grab your spoons and dig in to our celebration of breakfast cereal! Included in this episode are fun facts about mascots, the history and original purpose of corn flakes, and much more! It's grrrr-eat!</p> <p><em>This episode's wine: Maison Nicolas 2014 Chardonnay from France</em><br /><em>This episode's cheese: Goat cheese and pumpkin goat cheese (because James can't even!)</em><br /><br />We should have started this episode with a Mail Chimp or Mail Kimp commercial since this show is all about cereal! (The joke works better when it's said outloud, trust us, but we couldn't resist at least one Serial joke! I think the hashtag #sorrynotsorry applies.)</p> <p>James and Emily focus this week's episode on breakfast cereal, despite neither of them quite loving it now, nor were they spoiled with sugary cereals in their childhoods.</p> <p>Topics include the "oops, we fucked up" version of Lucky Charms, which Emily made anyway as a kid; our love of Cap'n Crunch (plus, his anatomically incorrect eyebrows); and how we're fans of Good Job, Brain! For more fun cereal facts, check out their Breakfast episode!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_48911">We talk about cereals that aren't around anymore, including cereals with direct tie-ins to TV shows and characters, including Mr. T cereal, which was featured in "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure." It's cool!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_48912">You might also remember the strawberry and banana cereal based on Urkel (not a hipster, just a nerd) from Family Matters, another show where going a little too far with obsession over a woman was OK back in the day, but now seems "rapey."</p> <p>Emily and Carlton from "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" are both broken-hearted over the Trix rabbit never getting some damn cereal, despite being a talking rabbit! If that wasn't bad enough, he's being replaced! Trix Rabbit, you are more than welcome to come and live with either one of us! We don't want to see you follow the path of other washed-up celebrities.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_71841">James got a chance to talk about his other favorite celebrity: Shaq. And he asks the immortal question, "Do you even know the plot of 'Kazaam?'"</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_71842">We talk about how John Harvey Kellogg devoted his life to deterring people from masturbating, which included inventing Corn Flakes. He was also a fan of enemas! Always a fun time at the Battle Creek Sanitarium! Also, never go to Taco Bell with James. Trust us on this.</p> <p>Emily introduces you to Thurl Ravenscroft, the voice of Tony the Tiger, but his voice has been featured in tons of animated movies, including being the uncredited singer of "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch." And she gets to talk about "Mary Poppins," which always makes her happy! And James reminisces about the time he thought a girl liked him, but it turned out she was a lesbian who enjoyed quoting the Frosted Flakes slogan.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_54017">James finds possibly the most racist cereal mascot, which you can always hold over your grandparents' heads when they say your generation is terrible.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_54018">No matter how many dirty looks Emily gives him, James cannot say "debut." Please feel free to write in and correct him. (Go ahead, it's fun to correct James!)</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_54066">Also, good job, Cheerios for celebrating different lifestyles in their <a id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_74301" href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/31/cheerios-commercial-racist-backlash_n_3363507.html" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/31/cheerios-commercial-racist-backlash_n_3363507.html">commercials</a>! We raise our glasses to you!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_54020">Also, check out where the eyes of mascots are looking next time you're going down the cereal aisle. James considers dropping Emily as his friend when he finds out she doesn't drink the cereal milk, until she promises to save her leftover milk to give to him. (Gift idea for James: leftover cereal milk!)</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_56443">Emily realizes that fiber cereal in yogurt makes her an adult. But then she disproves this when she fights with James over why Cap'n Crunch is perfectly qualified to be in a high-ranking position.</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_55798">And, because we love you, our lovely listeners, we did not eat cereal while recording this episode. But, to find cereal and wine combinations, check out our <a id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_74884" href="http://www.classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/pairingcerealwithwine" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.classylittlepodcast.com/show-notes/pairingcerealwithwine">blog post</a> in which Adam Centamore gives us his pairing recommendations!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_56442">And, we forgot to mention it in the show, but Kellogg's is the official supplier of breakfast cereal to the Queen!</p> <h2 id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_55790"><span style="font-size: 8pt;">Special Thanks</span></h2> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_55551"><span style="font-size: 8pt;">A big thanks to iMorpheus from <a id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_55598" href="https://itunes.apple.com/ua/podcast/death-by-horror-quirky-horror/id970275929?mt=2" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://itunes.apple.com/ua/podcast/death-by-horror-quirky-horror/id970275929?mt=2">Death by Horror</a> and Greg from <a id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_56107" href="http://www.debtshepherd.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.debtshepherd.com/">Debt Shepherd</a> for supporting us on our <a id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_55560" href="https://www.patreon.com/classypodcast" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://www.patreon.com/classypodcast">Patreon</a> page!</span></p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_55300">Also, thanks to Laura McClellan from <a id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_55302" href="http://theproductivewoman.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://theproductivewoman.com/">The Productive Woman</a> for giving us a shoutout on her show, and for giving Emily productivity tips so she has more time for wine and cheese!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_30883">Special thanks to <a id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_56626" href="https://twitter.com/100loves" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://twitter.com/100loves">Adam Centamore</a> for his book, "Tasting Wine & Cheese," which we used for this episode and we'll be using for our wine and cheese pairings for the next few episodes!</p> <p id="yui_3_17_2_3_1445988830985_30882" class="text-align-center">Cheers!</p> <p> </p>

Cheers to Back to the Future (CLP-Ep.13)

We took our show to Blab for a live recording of our show, in which we focused on this momentous day: Today, on Oct. 21, 2015, Doc, Marty and Jennifer arrive from 1985: Back to the Future Day!</p> <p>This episode's wine: Segura Viudas 2013 Cava<br />This episode's cheese: Gruyere Reserve Wheel (which we mention twice -- blame it on the Chambong!)</p> <p>Grab a <a href="http://www.chambong.co/">Chambong</a> of sparkling wine or even Pepsi Perfect, and stick us in your earbuds as you cruise on that Hoverboard we've all been waiting for! Unsure of what a Chambong is? We'll review it on the show, and hopefully convey why this needs to be in everyone's life!</p> <p>We'd like to thank our fellow-podcast friends for recording segments for us to play in this show! Nok from the <a href="https://www.facebook.com/geekyogurtpodcast?_rdr=p">Geek Yogurt Podcast</a>, iMorpheus from <a href="https://itunes.apple.com/ua/podcast/death-by-horror-quirky-horror/id970275929?mt=2">Death by Horror</a> and Nick from <a href="http://epicfilmguys.podbean.com/">Epic Film Guys</a>! We really appreciated hearing from them! Check them out!</p> <p>We recorded this episode using the super futuristic Blab.im, which, if you haven't checked it out yet, is an amazing platform for watching up to four people live or watching the replays. And it's free. All you need is a Twitter account to comment and give "props" 🙌, but even without logging into Twitter, you can still watch live Blabs! We even recorded our episode live through Blab, and they sent us a lovely email with the MP3 and video evidence of our Chambong-related antics, which you can watch above. PSA: Don't Blab and drive! It makes all the moms out there nervous ... and, if you insist on doing it, at least wear clean underwear!</p> <p><strong>BIG BOLD SPOILER ALERT!</strong> We talk about all three "Back to the Future" movies as if our listeners have already seen them. So, if you haven't seen them yet, stop what you're doing right now and watch them. Don't worry, we'll call your boss and explain the situation.</p> <p>We discuss how Ronald Reagan loved the movie, the many things "Back to the Future: Part 2" predicted correctly and some of the things the movie was wrong about.</p> <p>Emily proclaims her love throughout the episode for Biff, Thomas F. Wilson, and astronaut ice cream. And, after being mysteriously absent from the past few episodes, we manage to make a connection to HRH, the Queen!</p> <p>We suffer in our vests worn just for the occasion, and, although usually a Mets fan, Emily is making an exception this one year to root for the Cubs to win the World Series -- and James, rightfully so, chastises her.</p> <p>We talk about the role of Marty McFly before Michael J. Fox made it his own and, although a dedicated method actor and how much we respect him, how Eric Stoltz just wasn't right for the part.</p> <p>We ponder the age-old question of why Biff is such a likable villain, despite being "rapey," and we try our hardest not to pick apart the movies (with little success), and we also question Lorraine's reputation and wonder if there would ever be a Jerry Springer/Arthur Miller version in which George McFly questions Marty's paternity. This is also the only movie in which incest is humorous.</p> <p>Also, lesson learned, when someone calls you chicken, you Chambong it!</p> <p>Emily talks about the short-lived animated series and why people need to stop procreating with anyone whose names sounds like Biff Tannen. Come on, ladies, have some respect! Plus, the origins of the word, "butthead."</p> <p>We also hear from viewers in our Blab chatroom, including Doug, who suggested we watch Crispin Glover's music videos, which are nothing short of terrifyingly riveting. Thanks for the nightmares, Crispin!</p> <p>For the most part, we love these movies, despite a few questions we still have. And, aside from James' comments about Marty's instinct to fuck his mother, it's an all-around family favorite, sure to delight generations to come. James even finds a way to compare the third movie, which some have deemed the worst of the trilogy, to "Schindler's List."</p> <p>And Emily finds a clip of her favorite line, "THE LIBYANS!" and gives tips (which you shouldn't follow) about sanitizing drink ware.</p> <p>All this, plus tons more, in our "this is heavy" episode!</p> <p>Special thanks to Adam Centamore for his book, "Tasting Wine & Cheese," which we used for this episode and we'll be using for our wine and cheese pairings for the next few episodes!</p> <p>Check out "We Don't Need Roads: The Making of the Back to the Future Trilogy" and get this audiobook FREE by going to <a href="http://www.audibletrial.com/CLASSY">www.audibletrial.com/CLASSY</a></p> <p>Have a great Back to the Future Day!

Cheers to Wine Tasting (CLP-Ep. 10)
<h2 id="yui_3_17_2_1_1443368273784_116085">For our 10th episode, James and Emily leave the Classy Little Basement to head out to the <a href="http://www.downtownmilfordct.org/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.downtownmilfordct.org/">Downtown Milford Business Association</a>'s seventh annual Wine Trail, sponsored by <a href="http://winesandmoremilford.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://winesandmoremilford.com/">Wines and More!</a> Somehow, we fit more wines than usual into a shorter episode!</h2> <p>We find out different terms regarding wine, like "clippings," "master somm," and "oak-aged." We also get confirmation on a theory we already have: Pinot Noir is a good starter wine (and also the most awesome red, in our opinion). In addition, we learn about a new wine we had never heard of, Verdejo.</p> <p>James also finds some tips for the optimal conditions for wine tasting ... you know, when you actually want to appreciate the wine, not just drink it after a hard day at work. He also discusses his future plans to age jailhouse wine, and Emily talks about the latitude where wine thrives the best. Who knew that 8 a.m. geography class she was half-asleep for in college would come in handy?!</p> <p>Shoutout to <a href="https://twitter.com/wineesquire" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="https://twitter.com/wineesquire">@wineesquire</a> on twitter, who we've discussed trying to find a good Oregon wine.</p> <p>Also, if you're from Oregon, we've tried pronouncing your state, but we always feel we get it wrong. Please feel free to let us know the correct way. OR-reh-gon? OR-gahn? OR-gan?</p> <p>We also recommend you find a great wine store in your area so you can learn more about wine -- not just from us, who depend heavily on Google.</p> <p>And, we hope you catch our reference to "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" at the end!</p> <p>Tune in every #WineWednesday for a new episode!

Cheers to Ladies' Night (CLP-Ep. 09)

Kitty stepped up and is co-hosting with Emily on this very special episode dedicated to Ladies' Night.Our wine for this episode: Gato Negro 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, Chile (Boxed Wine!)<br />Our cheese for this episode: Somerdale Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese</p> <p>We discuss the health benefits of having ladies' nights and friends, despite the fact we're both proud introverts. We also go into a rendition of "The Golden Girls" theme song, and talk about how great the show is, sprinkling some fun facts about this ageless sitcom. And, we learn about Adam's (as in Adam and Eve) first wife, Lilith, who was quite the sassy broad! </p> <p>No episode is complete without a mention of the Queen! Plus, Kitty gives us the TOE-tal measurement of the Statue of Liberty's shoe, which we're sure she lies about anyway. We get into why Ladies' Night In is infinitely better than Ladies' Night Out. And, as women do when people are out of the room, we talk about James behind his back! And why you should NEVER share a Coke with James!</p> <p>And, we give a shout-out to Joanna Wilson Phillips (come on, can that last name be any cooler?!) from <a href="http://menucationkitchen.com/" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://menucationkitchen.com/">MenucationKitchen.com</a>, who left us a 5-star review on iTunes, and whom we talk with on Periscope and Twitter!

There's wine, cheese, dates, dresses, floppy hats, pastel shorts, Polo shirts and, oh yeah, horses!</p> <p>We find out the history of the "Sport of Kings" and how the game works, how Argentina plays a major role in polo, the fashion aspect of a polo match, the perks of being a polo club owner, and the origin of the Polo shirt.</p> <p>While we drink our wine, eat our cheese and discuss what we Googled before attending the posh event, we also make terrible (read: fantastic) puns,  Emily has an idea for a "better" mallet, our intense knowledge of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic," "Pretty Woman," qualities of a horse to look for in a relationship, Babe Ruth's STDs, the breeding of WASPs to walk in the grass in high heels, a Periscope suggestion of cloning Louie Anderson for polo purposes, James' curiosity about floppy hats, James' finally learns what pastels are, and the birth of a new word: "Afazing."</p> <p><a href="http://katch.me/Classy_Podcast/v/c8be183c-3188-352d-a417-1a1c814ccbb3" target="_blank" data-cke-saved-href="http://katch.me/Classy_Podcast/v/c8be183c-3188-352d-a417-1a1c814ccbb3">We also Periscoped stomping the divots and checking out the fashions.</a></p> <p>Tune in every other #WineWednesday for a new episode!
