There was a time, not all that long ago, that a cable channel might consider running a three-to-four hour block of computer tech tips. That network was Tech TV and that show was The Screen Savers. Maybe it wasn’t actually that long, but in our minds, it was an endless stream of registry editing, configuration tweaking and RAM installing minutiae. Exquisite.
After our abysmal math performance in the recent Beverly Hills 90210 episode, listener muteKi suggested that we might need a refresher course in very basic arithmetic and submitted this episode of MathMan, a sketch from the educational PBS show Square One.
MathMan is a beleaguered Pac-Man clone who must use his short time in this world eating answers to math problems lest he be consumed by Mister Glitch. But what does this all have to do with LBJ and mid-tier 70s-era comedians?
Aaron Littleton hosts this week and casts a wide (math) net. John Hurst co-hosts and faces the uncomfortable suggestion that Animaniacs might not be very good.
Dragon Ball Z seems to be bubbling its way up a lot lately. Maybe it’s nostalgia, maybe it’s the new show, or maybe it has something to do with the radical sequel to Nathaniel Hawthorne’s magnum opus: The Scarlet Letter Z.

Are you ready for a show bold enough to feature teens? What if I told you they lived in Beverly Hills? Also what if they were white? And like everyone else in the show was white too. Plus, teens. Are you down? Good. Because I’m gonna blow your mind.
What if I told you all of this started because of Secret of Mana? Would you be further intrigued? Maybe…40% more interested? Then you’re going to be 130% ready for this week’s episode!
Aaron Littleton hosts this week and chooses the Beverly Hills 90210 theme song. John Hurst co-hosts while thinking about the Magna Carta to compensate for trying to do math in his head.
