AJ & McCall: After Show 08/16/19

McCall is sick, and maybe it's AJ's fault, but is her voice bad enough to get her kicked out like Producer Butterz did to AJ once upon a time? Does anyone really try and avoid work for the benefit for everyone else? The Facebook radio group turns in to a bit of a break down of rap music, sick days on morning shows around the country and how would would managing a show with more people go? Back to being sick, if one is gone should both be gone? Who is normally sick in the building and who always gets sick?

AJ & McCall: After Show 08/15/19

This is end from McCall, don't punch yourself in the face. AJ got a new chair and we need to all be talking about it, though Producer Butterz is using it at the moment. Watch out for the chair-mottoman! Producer Butterz was with McCall during the scream-athon that was part of the Debate At 8. How would you deal with it? AJ went shopping and thought he got a decently weird selection of items, but it gets worse.

AJ & McCall: After Show 08/06/19

Would you buy a murder house? Would you buy land that was once the spot of a murder house? Could AJ, McCall or Producer Butterz just stay one night in a murder/haunted house? One of the creepiest things on the internet is pictures of abandoned places, and Producer Butterz watched a show recently about an abandoned theme park because it was built on an Native American burial ground. The key to a second date is sharing dessert, but McCall finds it appalling and doesn't think it's okay. She will never share a dessert.

Who in their right mind would think you could bring a rocket launcher home on an airplane? AJ ran in to another person who couldn't drive yesterday and is so annoyed. McCall is addicted to office supplies and Producer Butterz has a weakness for pens. The truth is, pens are valuable work commodities but what are the favorites? How would you deal with your family just inviting themselves to your house? Who's most likely to get bit by a gator AND another terrifyingly huge spider!

AJ & McCall: After Show 08/01/19

Is it Friday yet? You can almost hear the melted brains to start the After Show. When will Producer Butterz finally break this year? AJ is firmly in the camp that video games are a sport, but what about Producer Butterz? Definitely seems like there are a lot of compelling reasons. McCall led the way with how she'd spend three million dollars at 16, but what about you? Maybe she could take care of herself because she's the queen of accidental injuries.

AJ & McCall: After Show 07/31/19

What are the parameters for having to listen to a work spouse when it comes to complaining about sore body parts? Every day McCall hasn't something that hurts to tell AJ.

It's an After Show without AJ, but why is it that he's out? McCall have a theory as to why he bailed. Producer Butterz wants to know why McCall was late. What would you tattoo on your head for free things? New Guy Sheldon tries to find a way around it to get money. A mom is maaaadddd about childless kids going to Disneyland without kids, but why? What shows are you binge watching?

AJ & McCall: After Show 07/29/19

Would Producer Butterz rather see 'Zombie Tidal Wave' or 'Giraffe-quake'? One is real, gonna be terrible, and one McCall made up and AJ thinks they should try and make. BUGS! BUGS EVERYWHERE! McCall saw the Mormon Crickets this weekend and AJ's brother is down in Vegas where all the grasshoppers are. What is the most annoying bug to deal with? Snakes, scorpions or spiders; which is the worst?

AJ & McCall: After Show 07/26/19

McCall is glad it's Friday, but really she wants it to be the next one. Good luck with that. Have you ever left future you hanging? AJ is mad at past AJ for leaving everything to be done at the end of the week but McCall doesn't agree. Who does Producer Butterz think is the best smelling celebrity? McCall is the animal lover but her solution for a small Arkansas town with a rooster problem is a kick to the head, but where is the line for abuse to animals?

AJ & McCall: After Show 07/23/19

Doesn't it feel like Friday? Why hasn't the seagull gone and saved those Idaho cities that are overrun with bugs? McCall keeps collecting all the animals, new chicks and a field lion. Producer Butterz can weigh in on AJ's ex and the massive age gap that now exists between fiances. When it comes to life goals how does that even match up? And yes there are jokes throughout, but hey she's an ex for a reason.

We're being overwhelmed by the Disney remakes, but which are good? Producer Butterz saw Dumbo and eh. Lion King is this week and the internet has been talking about the Little Mermaid, so what's next? AJ finally saw A Star is Born, after Butterz ruined it, but could he watch it again. Butterz says no, but AJ & McCall definitely could...that is if McCall has seen the movie. Who watches scary movies? What are their favorites? Can you watch them alone?

AJ & McCall: After Show 07/17/19

A Texas family had a photo bomb that completely ruined a family photo that brings up a repressed memory for AJ. What's the latest viral trend and can Producer Butterz make heads or tails of it? How many people will actually show up to the Area 51 invasion? This leads to McCall playing with Google Maps and part of the world being discovered for everyone. Would you rather buy and island or a town, and apparently there are options in Utah.

AJ & McCall: After Show 07/15/19

It's Prime Day and everyone is browsing for things they probably don't need. AJ and Producer Butterz bow out pretty quick but McCall is thinking about adding another roomba. Also, as she gets close to finishing her remodel almost every one of her appliances has WiFi, but why? What in the heck does a refrigerator or a dishwasher need WiFi for? And uh oh, AJ gets Producer Butterz started on the disagreement between him and McCall over how to do the drying of clothes.

AJ & McCall: After Show 07/12/19

Producer Butterz was on the phone with McCall when her car hit 100,00 miles but he agrees that it's super sad. AJ's new thing is handing out sacks of bricks to anyone doing super dumb things, including this morning's bonus Florida Or Not story. Producer Butterz has a lot of experience, for some reason, when it comes to friend's being pregnant and dealing with a rough relationship; so what should Ms. X do after Mr. X said he felt trapped and is worried more kids would trap him more. Also, AJ has his first sack of bricks to hand out because of a friend's co-worker who potentially lied about spousal abuse. Anyone that lies about things that serious needs to be seriously punished. McCall's Musical Thoughts and bear country go hand-in-hand, but Area 51 needs to be more worried about the now almost one million people coming.

AJ & McCall: After Show 07/11/19

McCall manages to find her way for the After Show. Can you hear the tone that proves whether or not you're old or have good ears? Yesterday we were making fun of the 'Storm Area 51' Facebook Group and it's still getting stronger. AJ & McCall have a bunch of Facebook friends that said they'll be going to it as well. We're just in it for the memes. McCall gets to jump in on the parking lot anger Debate At 8 and all the crazy things people are doing in lots. Producer Butterz isn't here for all the people offended about all the Disney live action choices. McCall is almost done with her house and can't wait.

AJ & McCall: After Show 07/09/19

Is AJ's app idea something everyone agrees is needed? He also quickly gives McCall and Producer Butterz three strikes after they get interrupted with Spudnuts. McCall says she's straight sevens down all categories, maybe, but some silly test stories is what spawns from that comment. The Nickleback song 'Rock Star' was sung three different ways by AJ, McCall and Producer Butterz, including someone who thought it was "today's new Zune." which brings us back to 'How old are you?' Instant Messenger, Giga Pets, downloading music on not tally safe programs and all the other things that make mostly AJ and Producer Butterz feel nostalgic, but McCall has the oldest technology story.

AJ & McCall: After Show 07/08/19

AJ can't escape the dumb thing he said about deer and how they grown their horns. Somehow this turns in to a discussion of all the different materials they could put on guns. Does Producer Butterz buy AJ & McCall's hypothesis on how to win the lottery? AJ feels like he totally missed the chance to win a million dollars and McCall missed her chance to gamble too. What basic card game does Producer Butterz not know how to play? They caught the ice cream licker but now there's copycat criminals so maybe pull stuff from the back.

AJ & McCall: After Show 07/03/19

Everything has seemingly fallen apart ahead of the four day weekend, is this some kind of punishment? Is it a sign AJ shouldn't go to Canada? McCall is the only one that has gone axe throwing, and that's sad. Cold pizza for breakfast, yay or nay? Since no one has tried liver, should they all try it? Then Producer Butterz starts naming off all the weird foods he can think of to see if anyone has had them. The fun really starts when they get to Rocky Mountain Oysters because one of them has no idea what they are. Then the fun game 'What are 10 Things that Shouldn't Exist Anymore?'

AJ & McCall: After Show 07/02/19

AJ couldn't believe that McCall brought up the spam salad so Producer Butterz needs to break the tie. While AJ is disgusted he found out this morning that spam salad isn't the worse thing he could put on his tongue. Why is McCall hogging all the jerky? Where are the best fireworks? Where has, not AJ as we found out because he hasn't seen them in five years, everyone seen a firework show? When it comes to BBQ what's the meat of choice?

AJ & McCall: After Show 07/01/19

Can anyone believe it's July already? Producer Butterz put the brakes on the July discussion because he has never shot fireworks off in the street and AJ & McCall can't believe that. This weekend AJ was down at Love Loud and saw people leave before the headlining acts. If you bought tickets to the festival, more than likely to see the headlining acts, why would you bolt earlier? There was a lot of cool things that happened at Love Loud and AJ has become a bigger and bigger fan of music festivals. McCall of course is all about her roomba, so which side does Producer Butterz fall on? How long until McCall gets an army of robots?

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/28/19

AJ and Producer Butterz are flying without McCall during a very long work week. What's the longest amount of hours you've clocked in a week and can you get away for the holidays? That's one of the things AJ loves most about his job. McCall has been talking about the new social media app, VSCO, but will AJ ever end up getting it? There's a very special birthday to wish but it raises the question about retirement; would you keep working? Do you know someone who has to have the latest technology?

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/27/19

Good news everybody, there's now a 'safe to eat' cookie dough. Totally a myth, just like the parent lies from the Debate At 8. AJ feels proud of himself for a new dessert he invented but McCall says there is much better use of corn bread. Anyone ever have Fry Bread, because AJ had it for the first time in Montana and really enjoyed it. What's the best side item bread when you're out eating. In AJ's home town there are bunches of pizza places but very few of them do you really order pizza from. How would you rank ranch, Mexican food because Producer Butterz's rankings of Mexican food is completely different than AJ & McCall's. And someone is burnt out on salads.

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/26/19

Has Producer Butterz seen the pie chart that was on the resume, but the more pressing question is 'Is the VFX internship program cursed.' If it is then how much longer will AJ & McCall be around? And how did Kyle last almost ten years? Who knew Ikea sold food? And apparently is actually a worldwide restaurant chain...despite having just 423 stores. How does that add up to number six? Bear man, killer spiders, heavenly fish experiences and the uppity bird neighborhood, plenty of animals this morning and in the After Show.

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/25/19

What were the things that made you cool when you were in high school? Would Producer Butterz rather face the big spider or the cracked glass on a skyscraper? McCall says she absolutely would shoot a big spider. A question stuck in McCall's head is what foods can you not eat on a first date. AJ is still fuming about what McCall tried to do to trail mix and somehow Producer Butterz is just as frustrating.

AJ & McCall After Show 06/24/19

How would you deal with being trapped on an airplane? A woman on an Air Canada flight found herself sleeping all the way in to the airport hangar and was left on a plane. McCall and Producer Butterz don't think it's too big a deal nor understand why she would suffer from insomnia. After his car crash AJ totally gets having panic attacks and anxiety about the situation. Also, what did AJ experience while out of the country for being an American?

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/21/19

How in the heck is McCall going to celebrate a six year anniversary on a budget? Maybe she should bust out the ukulele once again and right a heart felt song. AJ got a text about Fourth of July, less than two weeks out, from the family member that always tries to come up with plans with impossibly short notice. Both AJ & McCall will be gone for Independence Day and AJ will be driving through Montana again, but he's upset with that state because the truck he hit has been stuck in a shop because the shop closed for 10 days for a hunting trip. Producer Butterz is having a problem with road signs and his neighbors, maybe he should start a Home Owner's Association. Also, what did everyone think of the company cake we had yesterday?

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/20/19

Today's Morning Show had a little Kansas Karma. After bashing on the Great Plain states for how much they stink to drive in, today's Florida Or Not teammate for AJ had just moved from Kansas. Producer Butterz came in and said he had plenty of dirt to spill on his sibling sneaking out. How strict were AJ, McCall and Producer Butterz's parents? How did the three of them get in trouble when it came to curfew?

Now that Ed Sheeran has released the full track list for Collaborations Project #6, how did AJ, McCall and Producer Butterz do with their guess? (Last week's Drop the Mic podcast they tried to guess the whole track list) What songs will be good, who are some of the lesser known artists on the album, it all gets broken down. Mr. Sheeran is of course a great song writer and Producer Butterz just watched this new show, Songland, that sounds awesome and everyone should check out.

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/18/19

A conversation about worst vegetables led to the revelation that APPARENTLY people hunt for asparagus according to McCall. This is news to AJ and Producer Butterz who both agree they probably wouldn't eat it. Also, on the subject of gross foods why is someone making chunky New England Clam Chowder Popsicles? There is no reason anyone needs this or thinks it's good. One thing leads to another on the food subject, from tuna melt to ribs, and then washing dishes turns to laundry. Little did you know McCall and Producer Butterz and are VERY SERIOUS about the order they do their laundry.

Mitch was in on the Morning Show today and allowed us to recap the 'how long a gap of silence from your friend before you text them?' but what is Producer Butterz's answer? This just unfold into a discussion about push notifications and how much AJ & McCall hate them. Has Producer Butterz heard the new 'Old Town Road' and what role has Tik Tok played in making some of these songs popular? The craziest thing from the Morning Show was the Airbnb nightmare, a tooth typewriter, but Producer Butterz and McCall talk about running their own still.

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/14/19

AJ & McCall have felt like this week has taken at least a month while Producer Butterz says it has been super quick. Is it the moon magic up its normal shenanigans again? So much new music came out today, will any of them being the song of the summer? Have we heard the song of the summer yet? Halsey, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran have albums all coming out, but which will be the best? And how the heck is Marshmello so many places?

Producer Butterz will soon have his house to himself so will he throw a re-housewarming party? He definitely has to throw a birthday party, which is coming up, but who of AJ, McCall and Producer Butterz knows the other's special day? America's favorite vegetable is broccoli, with corn and potatoes being an option, but what are the actual best and worst vegetables? Of course along the way are a few oxymorons and favorite foods, which leads us to McCall's new goal.

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/12/19

Broken bones made things pretty squeamish and cringey during the Debate At 8, especially for AJ who has never broken one but he has company since Producer Butterz hasn't broken a bone either. Is it dumb luck or have they just not been extreme enough in their activities? McCall makes no bones about how much she didn't enjoy high school, but would her teachers be surprised at how successful she has become? Are you in contact with any of your past teachers? None of AJ, McCall or Producer Butterz would go back for reunions, would you?

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/11/19

We're channeling our inner Kyles when it comes to energy drinks back in the day, though Producer Butterz was a very well behaved child apparently. Would AJ, McCall or Producer Butterz drink any of them still? What games did you play to pass the time as a kid, because AJ & McCall noticed there's a pretty common theme with them...violence. Slaps, sacks, punches, tackles all of those were involved in plenty of the kids games back in the day. During the Debate At 8 AJ & McCall went through plenty of ways to ruin weddings but have more to add to the list.

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/10/19

Will McCall really go through with the flip phone challenge? AJ can't hold back, why do they keep making shark movies?! Producer Butterz doesn't see the big deal but AJ & McCall totally agree that shark movies are lame and horror movies are at least a little different. Can we at least get a different monster, speaking of which, AJ & McCall share their favorite terrible 'scary movies.' Also, could the VFX staff make a better movie than some of the worst ones out there.

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/07/19

Ajay is nice enough to jump in on the After Show to tell us how it went subbing in for almost two weeks with AJ & McCall while they were each gone. Everyone shares their first on air nightmare stories, including Producer Butterz critiquing Ajay while he was subbing in on VFX. Also, there's a bit of a mystery surrounding a co-worker everyone is going to try and guess what the deal is.

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/06/19

What drinks do you put ice in? Because for AJ it's just a big contradiction with no real rhyme or reason to explain it. And the discussion of drinks got AJ started on sweet tea and what's right and what's garbage. McCall is still scratching her head as to why FBI classified 'Big Foot info' when it was just deer hair. What is the thing causing the VFX staff to want bunches of states to change their names forever?

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/05/19

Would you call in to work because of exhaustion? After graduations AJ & McCall are feeling it and Producer Butterz has been grinding and feeling it too. Could Producer Butterz tell the difference in a cake and Styrofoam covered in frosting? How long after getting back from a trip does it take for you to unpack and what do you wash? There's one major difference in the weather for the Indiana and Utah and McCall doesn't think it's that bad, but Producer Butterz has never dealt with humidity.

AJ & McCall: After Show 06/04/19

AJ is back and despite turning 30 AJ still doesn't know how to ride a bike and apparently knows nothing a kid should know. Is corn on the cob the best summer food? Who doesn't want to eat and get as much out of a steak as they can? Do you save the leftovers because AJ's roommate doesn't and it was appalling. How was your high school, did you like commencement? What happened to your tassel?
