200 Advice with Molly Ringwald

We've mentioned it for weeks, and now it has finally happened -- our guest in the hatch this week is Molly Ringwald! Molly writes an advice column for The Guardian, sings in a jazz band, and still finds time to be your lifelong crush. Join us in the hatch for our 200th episode as we chat with one of our favorite people about hyphens, advice, pizza, love, and so much more. It's Molly Ringwald Day on Professor Blastoff. Listen Here.

199 OCD with Cy Amundson

Most people think OCD is a disorder that makes you check doorknobs over and over and organize everything meticulously, but what is it really? We wanted to know, so we invited our friend and comedian Cy Amundson into the hatch to talk about what it's like to live with OCD. We discuss the root of it, what the symptoms are, how to control them, and lots of other things. Join in at earwolf.com

198 Life and Fear with Joe Neyer

They say life is short. You are not guaranteed tomorrow. But what if you were diagnosed with Glioblastoma? This week we have one of the most compelling and inspiring episodes we've ever been lucky enough to be a part of.  Joe Neyer calls in from Ohio and tells us what it is like to live with a brain tumor. How he approaches each day, his outlook, his attitude -- it's incredible. We hope you'll listen and be equally inspired. earwolf.com

197 Narcissism With Greg Behrendt

This week we invited comedian, rocker, and author Greg Behrendt into the hatch to discuss his life, career, and what it means to think about yourself. How much is healthy? When is it a problem? How do you manage it, and is it always a bad thing? Join us as we talk about narcissism at earwolf.com

196 Addiction with Sean Jordan

We were all so saddened and confused by the loss of Harris Wittels. Addiction is something that so many people struggle with, but what exactly is it? How can we fight it so that we can keep our friends safe and healthy? We thought that talking about it might a good first step, and we invited Portland comedian Sean Jordan into the hatch to discuss drinking, his father, and beef chickens. Listen now at earwolf.com
