Intro - Justin is going to be a mother.
05:44 - How do I respond to complainers? I often find myself at the receiving end of some sort of rant. People recounting bad customer service experiences, ways their friends have slighted them, and so on. What's the best way to react? Complaining is a pet peeve of mine, but I don't want to be rude. Do I agree with them? Stay neutral? I try to be noncommittal and let them vent, but I'm worried my annoyance shows through. What should I do? -- Complained Out in Carnation
10:58 - Travis' Pondering Corner - As I was going through the emails last night, we got an email from Robin, and Robin made an excellent point that we have a tendency to use phrases like 'man up' or 'nut up' or, you know, something along those lines.
My mom took my swag. how do i steal it back?
yeah like a month ago my mom caught me chiefing a cig. she then took all my snapbacks and proceeded to tell me that she took my swag. at first it seemed a little stupid, but now i no longer feel the urge to smoke cigs or wear bulls snapbacks. how do i steal the swag back?
20:02 - At my college, there is a girl I really like. I met her once at the beginning of the semester, but didn't get her name, and recently saw her in the library and approached her. Besides coming off a bit strong, I really like her. We got on well and I asked her if we could have coffee sometime, to which she agreed. She then added me on Facebook. When I check out her profile, though, it said she was interested in women, not men. Should I trust this and give up advances of romance, or ask her out and hope for the best? -- Confused Facebooker in Bundura

Do people in the Pokemon universe eat Pokemon?
Pokemon seem to be the only animals around in the world created by the show and games. Do the humans who live there eat Pokemon? Considering that they all can be caught and trained, they obviously have some sort of intelligence, so would eating them be in violation of some sort of ethical code?
The only way around this, I suppose, would be if everyone was vegetarian, but I don't see much evidence to support either side.
What do you think?
35:01 - MZ - Personal message from Robin. Personal message from Johann Sterner and Kajsa Lunde. Sponsored by Extreme Restraints. Advertisement for Dave Hill's Podcasting Incident.
42:26 - I often find myself flying alone on trips. The problem comes when using the restroom at the airport. As a solo flyer, my only option is to take my carry-on bags with me into the bathroom. But then what? I hate putting my bags on the bathroom floor, but I don't see any other choice. Help me out, brothers. What can I do?

Can my parents sue me for breaking the window?
I was playing cracker with my younger brother and I hit it and shattered the window. I'm 15.

In the Pokemon bit, Travis essentially invents Pokemon GO:
"I hope you're listening Pokemon Game developers: If you want to evolve your Pokemon, you have to make them eat another Pokemon of the same type"
