The Test 73: Holy Days, Holidays, and Appliance Shopping

January 16, 2017

"Tis the season . . . or 'twas the season, and  there's always another holiday around the corner. Not only only does Stacey break format for this one, she creates a completely new format (and then promptly abandons it).

Dave and Cunningham bumble their way through religious traditions, holiday customs, and related materialism. Come and celebrate some good times with the gang. Maybe you'll even purchase an appliance!


The Test 72: Happy Apocalyptic New Year!

January 8, 2017

Happy New Year! If there's one thing certain about 2017, it's that we are one year closer to the end of days . . . the apocalypse is inevitable, we just don't know how or when. So you might as well hunker down with the gang from The Test: Stacey has a shitload of guns, Cunningham is in charge of the spiritual nonsense, and Dave is a font of useless information. A truly essential eschatalogical primer.


The Test 71: One For the Ladies (Kitchen Stuff)

December 22, 2016

Apparently America isn't ready for a female president yet, and so the women will have to head back to the kitchen for (at least) the next four years-- but this won't pose a problem for Stacey and Cunningham. Dave pitches them a meatball this week-- a test on culinary knowledge-- and they knock it out of the park.

In fact, they prove so formidable on this topic that the podcast breaks new ground: the ladies empirically prove the fallibility of God and the internet. Despite their comprehensive perspicacity, they are still plagued by those pesky number thingies: Stacey gets all sweaty doing a math problem, and Cunningham is duly impressed.


The Test 70: Random Drug Test!

December 12, 2016

Stacey administers a much needed random drug test. Though Dave and Cunningham pass with flying colors, beware . . . it's a long strange trip and someone might try to eat you face. 


The Test 69: Livin’ La Vida Cunningham

December 4, 2016

This week,Cunningham urges Dave and Stacey to get in touch with their inner-Latina. Dave learns that Cunningham doesn't speak as much Spanish as he thought, and Stacey speculates correctly about a tiny baby in a cake. Everyone learns something, and you will too . . . so give it a shot, keep score, and see if you're a supermalo estudiante de espanol. 


The Test 68: The Key Piece

November 27, 2016

This is the episode we recorded the day after the election-- we thought it would be good to capture some audio as close to the incident as possible-- and so be prepared: the gang isn't as chipper as usual. There is a good test buried amidst the shocked political ramblings, though, so dig in, enjoy the depression, and see if you can identify the key piece.


The Test 67: One for the Slacktivists

November 20, 2016

Despite her bronchial infection, Stacey executes a smart and topical quiz on political terms and issues . . . this one is short and sweet-- Terry's dream-- but, amidst the political jargon and the juvenile and canine intrusions, we still manage to cram in a few laughs . . . so give it a shot, keep score, and, if you're not careful, you just might learn something (even if you're a slacktivist . . . or a hacktivist or a cracktivist).


The Test 66: TV Theme Song Escapism

November 13, 2016

Though the gang is suffering from the post-election blues, Cunningham does her best to cheer us up with a brand new, totally mindless, completely entertaining TV Theme Song Quiz (which the ladies oddly refer to as a TV Theme Show quiz). So chill out, forget about the future, and see if you can identify the seven clips. We promise no one will grab your pussy.


The Test 65: Peppered

October 23, 2016

If you're going to listen to one episode of The Test, this is the one. Not only does it contain (according to Dave) the most brilliant question ever written in the history of podcasting, a complete culmination of everything that the gang has learned during the entirety of the show, but there is also a pepper-related mystery (solved) and a cunning trap, which the ladies fall into (and refuse to be extricated). You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll shoot mucous from your nose, and you might even learn something (about pepper-related topics).


The Test 64: Tattoo You, Me, and Everyone Else

October 12, 2016

Stacey opens a crazy can of worms this week, and the gang goes on a journey through time, space, and permanent body art. Cunningham reveals where they've got Jesus, and technology provides a real-time crisis that leads to a dramatic ending.

Play along, keep score, and if you're not careful, you just might get roofied and end up with a bad tattoo.
