Joel bathes in potty-humor and Alan bleeds out of his head as they answer listener mail.  Then pre-sober post-carny Lucy-Liu-love’n Jake “Bourbon-Fingers” Armstrong stops by to discuss his rags-to-riches-to-rags tale of award-winning animation success, secrets of the human nasal-cavity, and how to cheat death.  The denouement will catharsisize your empathy.

On a Full Forum Super-Seven-Student Panelpalooza, Joel and Alan survey animation students who study animation at Boston’s extra-prestigious School of the Museum of Fine Arts about their likes, dislikes, and the future of future animation futures. During the course of the discourse, many fundamental life questions are questioned; what’s the best way to animate glitter raining down on a stripping cat?, would you really give up your right pinky for the abilities of a changeling?, how can one take a shower in the classroom?, and most importantly, can Hamburger Helper help you to help yourself?
