Season 7, Episode 18: Rocket to the Future! Part One, chapter 6

Mar 25, 2019

Hopefully the listener has recovered from the devastating effect of not one, but two clip shows in a row detailing the adventures of the crew of the Vanguard, an Earth Space Force Rocket, in the space-age future year of 1992. Crazed galactic encyclopedia salesmen, Rocketmen from Planet B, venereal time warps, and even six month performance reviews have not been enough to staunch the valiant Vanguard crew. But now they're meeting up with the crew of the rocket Knausgaard, and each crew member has to deal with their far more competent counterpart. Will they survive a runaway meritocracy?

Season 7, Episode 17: Not Another "Clip Show" Clip Show

Season 7, Episode 16: The "Clip Show" Clip Show

Mar 16, 2019

Years ago, "Men in Charge" invited you into the space age future of 1991 with the legendary "Rocket to the Future," Part One. Tony and Kevin recap episodes 1 through 3 of this madcap space opera in preparation for a new adventure airing as Episode 18 of this season.

Season 7, Episode 15: Kid Gupta!

Mar 4, 2019

Kid Gupta, the itinerant Hindu god of the seventeenth rank who was the central antagonist of Men in Charge's famous and brilliant fourth season, returns to plague Tony and Kevin. 

Season 7, Episode 14: Eaux de Hose

Feb 27, 2019

Though a lot of competing shows wanted “Eaux de Hose” as an episode, it fell to Men in Charge to craft an episode around it.  “Eaux,” which in French means “eaux,” is what flows through hoses, and Tony and Kevin begin the show with stories about they had to drink from hoses and lead pipes when they were younger. Then it’s off to another adventure with presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner: exploring his man cave with German film documentarian Greta von Volkenstein-Gomez, who taunts him about his bowling trophies and Russian friends.

Season 7, Episode 13: My First Cult

Dec 16, 2018

Have you fond memories of your first cult? Was it Scientology? Libertarianism? Or perhaps a slavish devotion to the forces of Big Library? Kevin and Tony reminiscence about wearing hair shirts and being given pamphlets during particularly drunken Earth Day celebrations. They invite you to share your own First Cult story on your blog (which they'll never read). After the hosts get "de-programmed," it's time for "Wiltshire Girl's Academy for the Privileged," in which Deborah recalls her salad days of getting pushed, kicked and bullied at Wiltshire.

Season 7, Episode 12: All Women are Now On Report

Dec 9, 2018

Listener, you’ll be as incensed as Kevin and Tony were to learn that the opening of the show was taken over by the cruel banter of Liz and Neesha.  These young women used their special “star” status as cast members to deride and abuse Tony and Kevin for their weaknesses in personality and mind.  If our Men in Charge weren’t so easily intimidated, they’d strike back in some way, maybe.  Anyway, after running our boys through a gauntlet of ridicule, Neesha and Liz at last discuss today’s segments.

Season 7, Episode 11: Our Sons are Jackals

Dec 2, 2018

Tony and Kevin explain, laboriously, that while their sons—everyone’s sons—are indeed jackals, they make the valid point that in the new, Vichy America, being scavengers is the best way survive after the predator 1%-ers have had their way with the nation’s resources. Then, for the episode’s first adventure, Emily Wellingtonford, Canadian Mine Owner and Usurer, engages in treacherous negotiations with American tariff hounds, while her assistant, the elderly Miss Wepford, hauls a steamer trunk a long, long way by herself.

Season 7, Episode 10: It's Simple the Way We Explain It!

Nov 26, 2018

Kevin and Tony start the show by deriding—out of necessity—the Listener for not understanding Men in Charge because, as they say, “it’s simple the way we explain it.” So then what’s the problem? For the first segment, which our hosts explain, simply, we have “The Man’s Guide to Ethnic Restaurants,” those little United Nations buildings, with food. How should you conduct yourself at, say, a Mexican restaurant? Let a man explain. Next, a new sponsor, “Big Smoky and Dr. Bean’s Men’s Lingerie.” They’ll tell you what soft-’n-silkies to wear around the ol’ chuckwagon.

Season 7, Episode 9: The Case Against Arson

Nov 18, 2018

Advised by many of their most desperate listeners, Tony and Kevin try to figure out what the legal and moral case against arson might be. Urban slang, recent history and the universal desire not to get one's delicate fingers singed are all taken into account. Reluctantly turning to this episodes sketches, our nearly-diligent hosts first introduce another Bad Ted Talk. Annamarie Summonghoul, a lady pastor at the Third Reformed Church of Mira Sorvino, wants you to live your best life today. We know you've never heard that speech before, so we're glad you're getting it here.
