In this week’s Halloween-themed episode, Greg and Patrick have fun talking about things in their academic jobs that scare them, from things that are a little scary to things that they find absolutely terrifying. Along the way they also discuss Mrs. Kopicky’s caramel popcorn balls, Wolf of Wall Street, Kenny T, forgetting you’ve told a story before, forgetting you’ve told a story before, recurring nightmares, bending but not breaking, the zeta of teaching, Royale with Cheese, necessary roughness, authoritative parenting, shotgunning Pixie Stix, feelings integers, and if ain’t Baroque.
