Brian kicks off the show by railing against neighborhood associations, on the heels of  Naperville resident Nick Thomas being banned from decorating his house for Halloween for the first time in 18 years by the Ashbury Homeowners Association board. Brian then talks about guns and how they relate to feeling powerful, before an accidental Rick Astley / Rob Zombie mashup de-rails the show.  Then his producer, Cody Gough, chimes in on the important topic of when it’s appropriate to delete photos of your ex, which leads into Brian discussing privacy on social media and what you can and can’t post. Then, a cautionary tale of phubbing and the implications of the fact that teenagers prefer texting over talking in person.  The show wraps up with Brian expressing his disgust over Burger King’s gross new bun, and Cody restoring the karmic balance of the fast food conversation by raving about his experience at the Taco Bell in Wicker Park—the first in the nation to serve alcohol.
