Mike Returns to Ryan Daly’s Cheers Cast!

Mike returns again to Ryan Daly‘s Cheers Cast, to dig into the eleventh episode of Cheers‘ third season, “Peterson Crusoe.”

Lovable barfly, Norm gets some terrifying medical news and falls into a deep existential slump. When that news quickly turns out to be merely a flaw in the X-ray machine, Norm’s new zest for life causes him to announce that he’s leaving Cheers forever, to live on a beach in the South Pacific. Chickening out on his dream at the last minute, Norm now has no idea how to let his friends at the bar know that he never left town and is currently subsisting on pretzels and beer nuts, living out of Sam’s office.

Fun Size Episode 40 – The Fucking C-Word

We sit down again with Tobiah Panshin to open up a bit about medical scares and Mike’s recent testicular cancer diagnosis and treatment. We dig into the heavy emotional weight that comes with getting scary news from a doctor. We also look at how the fictional depiction of cancer in popular media really doesn’t prepare you for the reality of even a highly treatable cancer.

Plus, we chat a little about the recent, strange anxiety about vaping, and how it compares to past moral panics like video games, rap music, Satanism, and Dungeons & Dragons.

Oh, and don’t vote for Joe Biden. He’s just awful.
