032: Her Life Is In Your Hands
Maybe a little too much penis talk, erection chambers, the various types of shmorgusborgii, pitched up looped dialogue, the joy of outsmarting a combination lock when you are eleven, crane moves and parallax, looping, the pain of Adam's Cafe and Shore Side Burgers, the Dude gets gentrified right outta there, and Adam leaves his dreams for another episode.

031: Man In Me, Part II
Brad and Adam are joined by a maker of films, pacifist handwriting, the inability to hear a connecting brown noise, the mystery of the first shot revealed, composite jobs, a brief history of the negative of the original pilot of Star Trek, the politics of Lebowski preservation, the online discussion of the physics of the theoretical lebowski planet, and identifying the ejaculatory moment.

030: Til It Goes Click
Stuporman, alternate Jesuses, Liam's eye flirts, throatmeats, possible tedium of couch gags, a trip down physical media memory lane, smart sharks and Star Wars spillover, deliberate cheese, saying goodbye to The Jesus, hippal areas, what's going down at the Cape Cod Playhouse in Hyannis, Jainism, being fully riveted, another -ism, yet another ism, the defenseless things, and nature's feedbag.

029: Yeah? Well, You Know... That's Just, Like, Uh... Your Opinion, Man
A Lindsay Lohan update, vacation malaise and the sock scourge, drawing lines in economic sand, the alternate Tobias Funke, triangles, snort-worthiness, all the important people, inaccurate Krokus namedropping, Jesus chortles, Liam's manmeat, and the inevitability of "cute results" in a base 10 number system.

028: Life Does Not Stop And Start At Your Convenience
We welcome special guest Steven to discuss: Pinkie takes a peek, shadow discrepancies, the flangey Dude voice, the differences between Karl Marx and Joseph Stalin, slow doorbell fingers, Ernie who works at Prosource, and questioning the essential nature of The Jesus going door to door.

027: That Creep Can Roll, Man
The guy who's not Liam points too, the re-doubled zelnicker astoundment, the flopped shot from last minute, Liam's poor stitching, the rare entertainment value of masturbatory self-indulgence, pink women and their MGDs, the codpiece, non-penile pants boners, the strange cut from the jesus's celebratory finger to the triumvirate, nice triple racks, the little blue yard toy, and an extra-special musical send off.

026: The Jesus
The invitingly watchable motions of The Jesus, delicate foot scrapes, the Dude's bull-like twin nostril smoke jets, the ins and outs of ring culture, details of women's socks, the careful conceit of non importance as evidenced by stranger interruptions, recentering yourself filmically, redder stripes, egregious licks, Jesus stitchings, Bespin small droid wranglers playing keepaway, and the Hallowedding and its familial implications. Also, Adam might wear stockings and Brad gets his Chev Chelios on.

025: Why Me, Man?
Cowards, weaklings, bums, the waffliness of diegesis, the perfection of narrative spaghetti, high frame rate cameras for catching high speed crabs, the landlord as originally scripted, Thurston's future return, the temporal anomalies of round robin bowling tournaments, a listener comment from Gordon Lightfoot, the fluidity of dates in Lebowski's filmic dream, disconfirmations, Brad's ignorance of movies with guns and/or mobsters, also an entire section talking about movies we've seen.

024: Mind If I Do A J?
How Brad hates jobs, high quality digital representations of high quality paper, 150% Brandt finger splaying, cogent pieces of cultural criticism in a classic 80s film, voyaging inside The Dude's head, the resolution of paper, the season dump, more on PS-Hoff's amazing body control as evidenced by his caterpillar lip, the nihilosity of the word "gather", the jumping of the J, the unlikelihood of the Titular Lebowski's mastery of "scale to fit", the oddly long Brandt reaction preamble, the lefthandedness of the crackle, and an in-depth breakdown of the opening title sequence of House of Cards.

023: We've Had Some Terrible News
Mo-Zurt, logical glossovers, a celebration of candelabras, the porn version of an old Jeff Bridges movie, a little dude in Tron, the strongly influential Babe Ruth of Japan, some interstates, the fallacy of the Prince symbol with a smiley face, Fargo's punctuated mundanity, duck
