New hashtags for this episode: #kBomb
They respond to the theme song as it’s happening. Rory talks about how he loves the opening breath in the theme song. Daniel reads a couple of reviews. Dan talks about how he has a show the day after this drops, and that Rory might make an appearance #subjectToChange, but it depends if he has a basketball game that day. Dan talks about how he hasn’t seen Hoosiers again. They quickly promote the upcoming Red Clay Comedy Festival. They “go to the letters” and Daniel does a little spin. Dan makes a joke about Rory’s daughter actually being his daughter. They then talk about how they are going to get a discussion started about doing a Patreon. They encourage people to make their own merch. After the first letter Rory talks about how Pallers have a way of dropping in obscure hashtags into their conversations to let the guys know that they really are Pallers. This of course leads to a #saga chant. They discuss traffic in various cities, and it eventually morphs into a conversation about diet. Rory says that when you are stuck in traffic, that is the perfect time to stay hydrated, and that they wish nutritionists would just tell them what to eat or how to live. The only thing people seem to agree on is that we shouldn’t eat sugar. Rory says “you think I’m going to give up eating a DQ Blizzard? Get the fuck out of town.” They talk about eating Blizzards, watching Hoosiers and then eating cheesesteaks. They decide to make the entire episode about this one letter, because the letter itself is kind of a two-parter. They talk about how relationships just kind of “start” because desperately wanting it or trying to force it doesn’t make it work. DVK says “action is borne out of emotion.” Rory goes into a detailed description about developing love, and how people adjust their realities to meet someone else’s. They joke about “k bombing” someone, which is where a serious question is answered via text dismissively with “k.” They talk about how open communication about sex is something that is necessary for a successful relationship. Rory talks about how you don’t decide what turns you on, which is very similar to DVKs “you can’t control what moves your dick.” They go into a lengthy discussion of different kinds of sex that people are into, and how people have to come into agreement about things that people are mutually into. Rory jokes that this letter is going to some really strange places and makes a reference to Robert Frost’s “Two Roads Diverged” poem.
