175 Reality TV with Lauren Lapkus

Isn't reality TV the worst? Lauren Lapkus, from Orange is the New Black, would disagree. What is the point of Reality TV? Is there anything redeemable about it? Or is it much deeper and more profound than people give it credit for? Can "Married at First Sight" be anything more than a guilty pleasure? Perhaps it's a social commentary.

174 Development with Katie Krentz

How do you develop a television show? Is it anything like how life develops you into who you are? Or is that just genetics? Or nurture? Or none of the above? We invite our good friend and development executive at Cartoon Network, Katie Krentz, into the hatch to talk all about this and her upcoming wedding. Plus an impression-off. Listen at earwolf.com

173 Austism on the Playground with Mark Kretzmann

We have discussed Autism before, but there are so many aspects to it, we decided to bring Mark Kretzmann, who is pursuing a PhD at UCLA, into the hatch to discuss research being done with children in social settings. How do kids with autism integrate into the group? Are there methods or procedures we can teach kids? Or do we just have to hope that they are nice?

172 Conspiracies with Bill Burr
