- Ep.48 "Megan's Habit"
Megan flies solo telling you all about her super cool habit that helps her do 5 things simultaneously! Wow! True, she made the list redundant but who's checking? Who's checking, anyways?

They also pick a new motto (what a time to be alive!).

- Ep.46 "Craft Fairs and How To Do Hard Things"
Gather 'round, listen to the saga and serendipitously surrender to the soporific and sage advice of the stupefying Megan.

- Ep.45 "Spring Cleaning"
First we have to go back to the flood. No, not that flood. The flood in Edwin's basement.
Dredging the bottom of the domicile, brought face to face with the good, the bad, and the ugly, of his boyhood; Edwin was at a loss of what to do with his soggy possessions. Enter Megan.
There is a saying that not all super heroes wear capes and that saying came into being because Megan exists (though you may doubt it!). A snazzy jumpsuit is all this paragon of organizational prowess requires.
Come for the harrowing story that ends in victory, stay for the philosophy that spring cleaning mind, body, and soul is part of our call to dominion.

- Ep.42 "Mary Poppins: Everything I Need to Know I Learned From..."
Practically perfect in everyway. Yes, this does encapsulate the essence of our eccentric Megan, but it is also true for Mary Poppins.
A new series breaks forth: "Everything I Need to Know I Learned From..." We look at Mary Poppins for the wise but strange advice that a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. Is there really an element of fun to every job?
Join us as we explore the value of the world of Mary Poppins and tuppence. Stay for the plural tense of animals and other such quackery.

- Ep.32 "Food at the Movies"
There are definitively 3 movies that encapsulates the soul and meaning of food. Today we are talking about two of those.
Looking at Brad Bird's 2007 film "Ratatouille" and Stanley Tucci's 1996 "Big Night" our heroes find themes such as, using your gifts, supporting gifted people, repairing relationships with food, and more. Between that and the drool inducing images of sumptuous feasts, these movies will have you laughing, crying, and begging for more.

Most of us have eaten a meal. Maybe even two. What is it that keeps us coming back for more? Is it merely to tank up the engine or is there more going on?
Our heroes take a gastronomical ambulatory perusal at food, going from fuel to feast but also feast to fuel. Apropos of the season, Megan and Edwin will tickle your taste buds and leave you confused at a higher level. Just like a proper holiday gathering.

- Ep.31 "A Drawing We Will Go"
Edwin and Megan complete another challenge, this time it was for drawing every day.
Is it a myth that you can't learn how to draw, or a fact that will plague our dynamic duo 'till the end of time? Can our heroes overcome the cuts and bruises of past failures? Is a hook a worthy enough item to draw, or is there only a finite number of laudable subjects? Edwin and Megan hope to inspire you to go from scribble to sgraffito.
This, and so, so, so, much more in this week's exciting episode.
