Carolyn gets a solo, Merrin gets racy, the Penguins get a Cup, and the Stars might make some trades -- it's Expansion Madness! We review Wonder Woman, Houston, and Tyler Seguin's new dog. Just who does Lindsay Lohan think she is, anyway?
We're back y'all! A two month hiatus means Carolyn & Merrin have to catch up on all the recent Stars news - Hitchcock hired, Bishop signed, and there's still more to come. Not to mention, there's like some big playoff or something. Gird that groinal region, it's the Fran Drescher of podcasts!
Are we done yet? Blue line questions, Nichushkin check ups, Sami the cat, Mass Effect, the USA Women's hockey strike, and rooting for the underdogs. Will Merrin survive her gut wound? Will Carolyn survive her romance novel?
[Volume Warning at the start]
It's the bye week, which means only one thing - time for a nasty head cold! Carolyn & Merrin break down the season's sadness, Jamie Benn: weatherman, trades, tacos, and talent shows. It's ok, you don't have to join our frat.
In this episode, Carolyn & Merrin discuss the Stars' dirty wins, the trade for yet another goalie, Cody Eakin's mustache, Ken Hitchcock's firing, how to stay sane in a stressful political climate, and why hockey is like Oregon Trail.
In a crazy busy week, Carolyn & Merrin take a break to talk Jim Nill: Femme Fatale, whether or not Lindy Ruff should be on the hot seat, pointless purple jerseys, if Patrick Sharp will be reunited with the Blackhawks, and can we ever fix the defense?
Is anything softer than Tyler Seguin? You tell us!
Happy New Year! It's DHH's third birthday and Carolyn and Merrin recount their wildly different NYE experiences. Also, the Stars' power play is awful, Sam Gagner is amazing, and Devan Dubnyk's Nana always knew he'd be a success. Plus, the moment you've all been waiting for -- the Dallas Stars Foundation Fancy Boys Calendar critique!
It's a Christmas Miracle! The Stars are turning things around! Probably! Goaltending, movie spoilers, Dr. Merrin diagnoses what the f*ck is wrong with the Central, Carolyn can't be trusted, and it all comes down to demons. Happy Holidays!
Note: Volume of the recording again seems to be unusually high.
A quarter of the season gone, and the Stars are primed for maximum sadness. That Pat, what a maroon! Merrin drops some All-Star truth bombs, Carolyn has a cold, Jamie Benn is keeping secrets, and Sen. Ted Cruz is... right? It's official. We live in #bizarroworld
