Episode 45 welcomes in 2012, and the boys are back in town… or back on the air waves… or digital waves… whatever, we digress. Jonathan bellyaches about his bellyaches, and Ryan explains his holiday traditions involving the homeless, and as usual, it’s not what you think. Equine corn consumption, lice racing, and amputee jokes abound. Ryan discusses personal family crises, and plays the “I have a child” card. The guys have a consultation on consulting. Ryan and his wife give their daughter the “Best Christmas Ever”! Jonathan outlines the extravagant Christmas dinner he iron-chefed. Ryan updates us on his new job, and talks about the job security of his colleagues. “It’s the economy, stupid!” Old vs. Young, and modern day marketing of real estate. It’s more interesting than it sounds, we promise. Jonathan discusses his platform for breeding out racism, and the guys discuss potential and/or possible “New Years Resolutions”.  Also discussed is the size of the President’s balls. Ryan gives a brief, but effective explanation of S.O.P.A., and Jonathan points out some Republican hypocrisy, as he is want to do. Ryan lays out his plan for effective media operations. The guys nerd out for the first time this year, and a Geico theme closes out the show.

Former stand-up comedian, close friend of Jonathan, Twins fan, and coupon guru Amy J joins the party to school the Proletariat on the art of couponing. Tips, hints, and facts abound! We learn the realities of what will, and won’t, happen. HINT: You will likely never get 8 carts of groceries for $6. We talk customer rewards programs, store coupon policies, and searching for coupons online. We get some coupon book layout tips, then we learn some sample secrets. We get some Black Friday tips (only a week and half late… Thanks Jonathan!). Amy shares her favorite coupon websites. Then… Ryan’s thriftiness hits new lows. We finally say goodbye to Amy J, but she will be back! We jam out to some Weird Al over the break, and Act 2 begins with our “Word of the Weak”. This week… “taciturn”. Then the boys learn something new, and it changes their temperament. We put Episode 42 to bed, and tuck it in real nice. Share this episode with your friends nerds! The Proletariat must grow!

The guys get to it on Episode 41 with talk of fortune cookies, and ridding oneself of canines. Child rearing and financial splurges are discussed. Ryan needs Viagra for his trash cans. Stealing for the environment, and Jonathan gives some life rules and advice. Jonathan reviews the J. Edgar film from his “Son of a G-man” perspective, which leads into a socio-economic breakdown of the Twilight fanbase. Ryan reviews a hip-harp concert, and speaks about religious production value and holy concert lighting. Jonathan seeks help from the Proletariat on religious nomenclature. Anne Rice’s two cents are put in, and the FBI infiltrates the NOPD… in a good way. The guys discuss showers, and not the golden kind. Some interesting drug-related medical studies are mulled over, which leads to college stories, and an analysis of Sherlock Holmes’ substance abuse. Does weight loss equal penis growth? We wrap it up with talk of artificial sweeteners and a preview of Episode 42 with guest Amy J! This Week in Nerd History and that’s that for Episode 41. Give it a whirl!

Our guest Jason O'Brien (left), gets photobombed by Oliver Stone.

Episode 40 live and direct! Well, recorded live anyway. Wait, is there any other way to record? We digress. We get the show rolling, right of the bat, as we start with this week’s guest: filmmaker, film historian, and Academy Awards expert Jason O’Brien. Jason joins the show, and schools us on the recent shake-ups in this year’s Oscar production. He then delivers an accurate guess as to whom the new host will be (this show was recorded more than 24 hours before the Academy released the info). Good job, Jason! Now tell us who will win the SuperBowl this year, and give us an estimate as to the score! Kthnx. Moving on, we talk about Jason’s latest endeavor in independent filmmaking, a short called After The Torment. We also discuss Jason’s long-running, and highly recommended podcast “Oscar, Oscar“.  A show many of the film nerds in the Proletariat will enjoy. After we say goodbye to Jason, Ryan declares victory, and celebrates his soon to be canine-free status. Jonathan discusses his shitty week, and his propensity to break all things electronic. Is Mercury in retrograde? Ryan starts a discussion on taking pride in your work. Yes. Believe it. The guys then discuss the basics of graphic design, and the psychology of such. The guys polish off the episode with a rousing discussion of Jonathan’s increasing O.C.D. tendencies. Nerd up!

Tonight! We welcome long-awaited guest, Sexual Health Expert Erin Barnes. Erin joins the fun, and enlightens us on many topics. Erin provides care and education related to sexuality, pregnancy, STD’s, abortion, abuse, and relationships. She is also a Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner with a Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Care Center, responding to sexual assaults, and providing crisis counseling, medical care, and collecting forensic evidence. On top of that, she is a Clinician with a client-centered Women’s Clinic, working in the operating room, and doing ultrasound, recovery, and pregnancy assessment. Erin joins the talk and schools us on all sorts of great things including forensic sex toys (not what you think), and how C.S.I. is not like real life. Learn how a Canadian endured Hurricane Katrina! We talk setting career goals, and we get into some serious talk regarding sexual assault. We talk HPV, facts, treatment, and solutions. Panels are now recommending it for boys, whats the deal? Erin educates us on women’s health initiatives, and what the Proletariat can do. We congratulate Mississippi voters on rejecting Prop 26, the “Personhood” amendment. This leads to talk on religion, Geek Sex, and abortion. Though the three aren’t mutually exclusive. The mood lightens as Erin dishes on what she’s nerding on… Hint: Winter Is Coming. We talk cold weather and hot acting skills. We get back on the sex talk and discuss sexual kinks, forays, and origins. Where’s the line on sexual fetishes? Polygamy: Not just for Mormons anymore. Moving on: the new Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and Jonathan’s “Falling Down” style day. C-Spire customer service blows. Managerial decisions and delegations. Inflation hits office supplies… the joys of capitalism! Office Depot’s impending death. Then we put a bow on it!
