Alex and Mike answer a call from the Fanther hotline and other listener questions, only one of which has to do with The Thing’s thing. Alex wonders about the most ethical way to raise a child, which leads to a chat about bullies and bullying in this internet-age.

And don’t forget about the Live Ink Panthers Show, scheduled to take place at the MoCCA Arts Festival on April 10th, at 3:30PM. Come join us, won’t you?

I know every week we promise a jam-packed show, but this week we really have got a show literally packed with jam. First, some follow-up on last week’s discussion with standup comedian Adam Conover, including the audio of him performing Mike’s soon-to-be-classic “The Thing’s Thing” joke. Then, like a bird-of-prey, Owly cartoonist Andy Runton, swoops back into The Panther’s Lair to talk craft and what’s meaningful to him as a creator. After that, Alex has some news about sandwiches, and Mike asks the tough-questions when it comes to picking out the perfect song to sing at a Karaoke outing. What song could he possibly choose that would make it tough to look him in the eye the next day? Find out here.

And if all that wasn’t enough, there’s the announcement of a new Live Ink Panthers Show, scheduled to take place at the MoCCA Arts Festival on April 10th. So, tune in to hear some early details about that.

I know which answer Mike is hoping to hear…

Step right up and enter The Panther’s Lair to experience The Greatest Show on Earth! Alex has been to Austin, Texas for the STAPLE convention, so he tells us all about it; then Mike has been to the circus and he’s got lots to say about that – mostly stuff along the lines of “Do the Elephants really enjoy standing on a ball and being made to sit in a seat?” It’s sure to be Fun for the Whole Family!!

A tale as old as time… come listen to Mike and Alex inside The Panther’s Lair, discussing a potpourri of Hot Topics, including: the announcement that Alex will be a Special Guest at this year’s MoCCA Festival; the movie Beastly, which Alex has not seen; the TV Show Luther, which Alex also has not seen, and the movie The Running Man, which Alex saw, but can’t really remember all that well.
