MY FAVORITE MARTIAN: The Ballad of Old Tan Tiddie Man (With Josh Kurtz)

No Highway Option

Another dose of Christopher Lloyd comin' at ya! We said we wanted more of him last week, so now we have...so much more.  Joshua Kurtz and the boys crash land in the middle of a forgotten corner of Disney+ so they can check out the 1999 sci-fi buddy comedy MY FAVORITE MARTIAN. Quite possibly the only movie we'll ever discuss on this podcast that has sentient clothing, the threat of getting pooped on, magic gum and Wallace Shawn all at once. It's a movie that can be simultaneously described as "a surprisingly funny good time" and "the most visually disturbing thing I've seen in years", depending on who you ask. Join them as they answer such questions as: What are the specifics of form-altering gum? How do you drink a lava lamp? Can you pick up accents from school? How poorly has this movie aged in the problematic department? Old Tan Tiddie Man, what's his deal? among many others... THIS FRIDAY: THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN (Luke's Birthday Bonus!)

Reporters' Notebook 09.08.20: WYPR's Rachel Baye, Maryland Matter's Josh Kurtz


Today on Midday, it's another Reporters' Notebook edition, as Tom surveys some of the top local and regional news developments with two of the best journalists on the scene. WYPR State House report Rachel Baye joins Tom first to discuss Maryland Governor Larry Hogan's plans to move the state to so-called "Phase 3" reopening; how the governor's thinking on COVID-19 has evolved since the pandemic's onset in the spring; the sharp differences in the approach to pandemic reopenings being taken by Baltimore City and Ann Arundel counties, for example; and why a large number of Catholic school teachers say they are quitting. Then, Tom is joined by veteran local newsman Josh Kurtz. He's the co-founder and editor of Maryland Matters, the online news journal covering state politics and government. Among the stories Josh has been following: the resumption of eviction actions in Maryland; the decision by the State Elections Board to no longer require 2-person teams to count some ballots; and State Senate President Bill Ferguson's plan to limit the number of bills individual senators can sponsor.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
