Most likely because they are all 'Hangry", the family proves that they are not perfect by going after one another. Allergies, a dragonfly infestation, what it took to become a teacher in 1923 and a run on Popeye's chicken sandwiches. Smoking and vaping do not get the same amount of attention, according to Matthew, Jr.
Tune in as we discuss the current White Claw shortage, an artist who created a black hole, the MN Zoo monorail's current state, a golfer's hole-in-one disappointment, an Ikea hide-and-seek game and find out who takes the most naps in the family!
The family chats about Gabe's trip to DC w/ mom and dad, then it was off to Boston to meet with Matthew Jr and the girls. Boston is a great town! A Blaine man found what he thought was a scorpion.

The new trend by rappers is short concerts. Way too short, according to the Fam. New cell phone rules Aug. 1st spurs some discussion on what laws should be allowed. Mom finds some weird/fun things to do in Saint Paul. Gabe brings the story about the kids grabbing the sturgeon in Minnehaha Creek to the table.
It was terribly hot here and now Matthew gets the heat in Boston. Thank God for A/C. What does everyone like to do in the summer? A quick call from a Chandelier...Ummm...okay. When you hit fifty, your emails change a lot! The family is hurting quite a lot after sending off their dog Piper after a thirteen year run. RIP "Good Boy"
The Fam is all over the board today, starting with some listener feedback and emails. Then Gabe chimes in with some Area 51 news. A group on Facebook are planning on storming the Area 51 castle.
