During the theme song, Rory chimes in with “New Year, New You..September!” Says He and Dan go to their whiteboard every week and mark off each week that they stuck to their resolutions- Dan wanted to see Heart play “Crazy on You.” They discuss giving up things for Lent (not Lint), Dan gave up Popeye’s 3pc chicken tender meal several years ago, which leads them into talking about the new Popeye’s chicken sandwich, followed by a mini Rory rant about chicken sandwiches and their lack of nutritional value. Rory was handed a 1 of 2 post card at the recording of Dan’s live show, but then Dan lost the post card he was given, so they ask the writer to repeat the 2 of 2. Rory talks about upcoming show in Cleveland, and tells listeners not to ask him afterwards when he is coming to Cleveland. They have started receiving some merch submissions from listeners. Rory messes up the studio address again. First letter, writer tells a story about her Dad anonymously giving his shoes to a homeless man while he was out for a run in Manhattan. The writer wanted to remain anonymous, Rory calls her “Bill Thompson’s Daughter.” This is followed by them again asking listeners for a case, Dan states “All of you know where your keys are?” Rory says he’s going to start smoking cigarettes (being a detective). They joke they might be getting Ponters’d. A statement from the letter regarding her dad not being a “hero or a Democrat” sparks a mini rant from both, Dan says “Octavia Spencer Cortez” and Rory loses it. Rory tells a story about a time he went to the grocery store, sees a homeless guy outside, and ends up grabbing some items in the store to help the guy out, but upon exiting the store couldn’t find the guy, decides to give it to someone else, but upon seeing the other homeless people, didn’t bc he didn’t want to offend them. Rory talks about how happy he is with the new Tool album and talks about dropping money on several of their upcoming shows. Second Letter- writer talks about the playlist and a specific artist with a sketchy past that recently came to light, but doesn’t tell them who the artist is. The guys discuss Michael Jackson as an example.
