Men in Charge Season 10, Episode 26: Pox & Phlegm's Conference on Men

In their coverage of their own radio event, Jeff White, Blanche Whitney, Bobby Van Illa and Ash Ivory pontificate on the inherent greatness of men...mostly white men. Dr. Maisie McElroy, thirteen-year-old professor of sociology, tells us about how to avoid cooties. We hear from sponsors the NRA (now more thoughts and prayers than ever before!) and Plausible Denial Condoms (now in family packs!). The listener is enjoined to consider whether "Young Slavic Ladies" are right for them. And Craig Falsetto, midwestern leader for Men's Rights, tells us who's lining up to replace those who are lined up to replace us.

Kevin Decker, Professor of Philosophy, was left holding the bag when Tony Flinn recently retired from Eastern Washington University. That bag was full of cats. At first, he thought they were cute, but then they woke up and started mauling him. It turned out that the cats were mountain lion cubs, often referred to incorrectly as “cougars.” One had rabies. From his now-permanent hospital bed, Kevin writes for and co-produces “Men in Charge,” the title of which may or may not be ironic
Tony Flinn, known around the model railroad track in his basement as “Professor of English, Emeritus,” recently retired from Eastern Washington University to age in place, like an old car up on blocks in the barn, convenient for climbing behind the wheel and saying “Vroom! Vroom!” He and his co-host and co-producer, Kevin Decker, have been writing and performing in “Men in Charge” since probably 2014, or even earlier, depending on whether you’re using the Julian or Gregorian calendar.
