Dan and Maureen are back after a month of dealing with life, and the new Says Who is here! What is new? Well, they’re back with guests and a SCHEDULE! And there's certainly been a lot to catch up on.
We’ve had the first battle over health care. The President pretended to drive a big truck and golfed thirteen times. And then, Russia! Maureen attempts to create an audio flowchart of events and issues the first Says Who Crafting Challenge: make your own conspiracy wall! Dan busts in with critical info he’s been keeping from Maureen and issues the second Says Who Crafting Challenge: let’s put a billboard outside of Paul Ryan’s grocery store!
Then we turn to our guest--musician and all-round good guy Ted Leo--to talk about how he stays creative inside this awful Trump headspace. Turns out, he likes to read some really relaxing books. Then he drops a bombshell of an Action Park story that brings everything full circle and Maureen loses it a little.
Says Who is back in town--bigger and better than ever. Let’s ride the slide together while we’re all still insured. Wheeeeeee!
Ted Leo has been playing music since the early 90s with a bunch of amazing bands, and has released nine records as a solo artist. He also collaborates on The Both with Aimee Mann. In addition, he just successfully Kickstarted his new record which will be out later this year. Ted does the work folks. Buy music.
Action Park, the New Jersey waterpark that Maureen and Ted talk about, boasts one of the more thorough Wikipedia entries about theme park safety you've ever seen, "Factors contributing to the park's safety record" along with the corresponding entry, "Fatalities"
