Updated: Sep 27, 2019

Welcome to our Very First Episode! On our blog, we'll be posting the episode as well as some extras and goodies that we mention. Anytime you hear us say, "We'll put that up on the website," you can find whatever "that" is here. Buckle up--we've got quite the ride for you!

If you don't want any spoilers, listen to the episode first and then scroll down to get everything. Whatever order you decide to do this in, we won't judge. (Just like you won't judge us for the grammar in that sentence.)

But first, a quick reminder to subscribe to our podcast on your favourite player! Share, comment, rate, review--all of that stuff helps the podcast SO MUCH.

And here it is, ladies and gentlemen. Episode 1: Applesauce & Horsefeathers.

This week's topic is our name: Applesauce & Horsefeathers! Or is it pie? Either way, we hope you think it's the cat's pajamas. Now if you'll excuse us, we need to see a man about a pie-- errr, horse.

Christa went kind of crazy with stuff to put up on the blog for this episode. We can't quite remember the order in which we talked about these, but "random" is what this whole podcast is about, right? (Oh--and there is the "F Word" just below, as Justice Scalia might say. It's a great recipe, no matter how you feel about the word.)

Without further ado, here is everything (mostly)!

Delicious recipes for Horsefeather Applesauce and a Horsefeather cocktail:

Megan Malarkey and Ron Swanson:

(AKA Megan Mullalley and Nick Offerman)

Jenna Fischer's Book:

Here's a photo of Christa's great-grand uncle, Beverly C. Rule. He mostly went by Bev, but probably had a few other choice nicknames, accompanied by some fist-shaking. But look at that face! You gotta forgive a guy like that. (Links to his IMDb page.)

And the poem Christa mentioned, written with a bunch of 1920s slang. (Including--whaaat?--APPLESAUCE!)

Guess what?! Not only did we find an episode of the Barney Google cartoon, but it also features the song "Barney Google with the Goo-goo-googly Eyes." (How fun is that to say? So. Fun.)

Speaking of cartoons, here's one of Christa's favourites, funny papers-wise. She can't believe she forgot the name! It's GET FUZZY! (She also wants to note that these particular two have been on her fridge for over a decade.)

Ready for some fun clips? Here's The Brady Bunch and The Marx Brothers! Shwell!

Here's the old calling card/Christmas card that Christa found in an old wicker trunk:

The house is still there, but I don't think the current occupants would appreciate us posting their address.

And some pages from an old service record (also mentioned).

Cyril Roy Roberts Housden. What a name!

Good on you, Cyril. The Army loves a sober man.

By golly, I think we've got it all! Congratulations!!! You've survived the first episode AND the first blog post. You deserve a medal. That doesn't mean you're going to get one, mind.

Thanks for listening and reading (and watching)! We'll see you in two weeks when we discuss SOCIAL MEDIA. (Dun-dun-DUNNNN!)
