https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-atq9k-d1c041

If you like a drinking game, this is the episode that best suits one. LaToya reminds everyone that she’s a moody snob. Barry is excited about Gatsby but is disappointed with Star Trek’s dystopian attempts at utopia. The hosts argue over what’s more important, Kobe Bryant or Mr. Peanut. Yes, seriously, this is a real conversation. Plus, there’s the surprising end of the episode that you won’t want to miss.

It’s yet another day where neither host wants to do the show. However, since it’s therapy for them both, they put on a brave face and bring their B-game. Barry’s reading a book that LaToya’s interested in and LaToya commits a cardinal sin when her Christmas movie list doesn’t include what Barry feels is a required Christmas classic. They both plan on seeing the same movie next week. Separately, of course. As usual, Barry proves that he’s blacker than LaToya.

Barry describes, “It was brilliant, moving and full of the joy and pathos of humanity. You’ll never hear it, but trust us, it was beautiful.” This show was almost dubbed “The Lost Episode.” The hosts start the show early with the hopes of finishing early. However, 90 minutes into the show, LaToya’s iMac crashes, and both are worried that the perfection of those 90 minutes would be lost forever. Breathing a sigh of relief, “That’s why I love my Mac,” says LaToya, “All is not lost.”

It’s Thanksgiving, y’all, and what is there that’s better than a brand new In the Stacks episode! It’s all about entertainment and the gobble. Barry plans on having a low-key celebration while LaToya will be continuing her 15+ year tradition of celebrating Thanksgiving with some of her favorite family members. If you’ve somehow not yet seen Frozen II, you’re in the minority, and Barry suggests a few other podcasts for your listening pleasure.

Even with a well-planned show outline the hosts still meander into discussions around death, shacking up, and water hoses. Barry is excited that it’s “Gatsby” season and LaToya is looking forward to seeing Lizzie McGuire. First world problems abound as Barry is excited about a major accomplishment. And, despite their friendship of over a decade, Barry throws LaToya under the bus and makes her provide clarifying details of the first date weekend that she had with her now-husband of 7 years.

This week it seems that neither Barry or LaToya are watching the runtime clock for the episode making it the 3rd longest episode to date. LaToya informs Barry that the fans loved his raunchy closing of the last episode, but can he perform under pressure? Barry rethinks the BaToya rating scale. DragonCon 2019 has come and gone. Barry outsmarted a mosquito in a very surprising way. Nicknames go to a whole new “White Chocolate” level. Labor Day is a movie marathon day for LaToya and Barry’s the only one on Facebook Dating.

The hosts are exhausted. Barry’s started the new school year, and LaToya drank an energy drink several days ago that is still impacting her cognition. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is the fairy tale that Barry thinks you should see and they discuss why LaToya will likely choose Apple Music over Spotify. Like an old couple, they bicker back and forth. Who would have thought that Barry would be the one who wants attention while LaToya is the one who says he’s too clingy.

Barry gets a new hand-me-down headset from LaToya and he’s not happy. We get a Roxie update and LaToya has issues with USPS. The hosts go down the movie and television rabbit hole and LaToya admits to watching over 70 television shows. We’re excited by Disney+ but can’t decide how we feel about the Cats movie trailer. Oh, and there’s a brief discussion about God. It’s a little bit of an alphabet soup type of episode.
