The Midnight Citizen 244: “True Fiction”

1:46:00 — Join Mike in the studio on a Saturday night, on the eve of his 40th birthday…

The Midnight Citizen 242: “The Private Lives of Television Characters”

1:34:19 — Join Mike in the studio on a Saturday night…

…where he wonders how much more intimate television can get? Will we soon see the characters watching Netflix on the world’s first 24-hour sitcom? Also, I’m in grave risk of getting the “Freshman 15”, and I learn that Bob Crane once did a television pilot where he starred as a 40-year-old college student. Am I in danger of going down his same path?

…where he attempts to hold the world’s first convention via telepathy, and recounts his first week back on campus as a full-time graduate student. They won’t let him save on rent by moving into a dorm. Also: why’s everybody so upset about student loan forgiveness?

The Midnight Citizen 240: “Backward Compatible”

1:41:16 — Join Mike in the studio on a Saturday night…

…where he mourns the passing of Summer 2022 while wishing the world were more backwards compatible – you know, like computer software in the 90s. Also, colleges nationwide encourage their students to withhold their urges…at least in the showers, and a toast to Salman Rushdie, who DID NOT DIE after the long-standing Fatwa on his life was nearly executed last week.

The Midnight Citizen 239: “Death, Taxes & Neighbors”

1:26:59 — Join Mike in the studio on a Saturday night…

…where he considers the differences between real schizophrenic neighbors and those zany ones of the sitcom dimension. Also: my old high school now doubles as a police precinct, and a toast to Anne Heche, one-time Janet Leigh doppelganger, whose late 90s relationship with Ellen Degeneres exposed prejudices within my church, which eventually led to me leaving religion.

The Midnight Citizen 238: “Adventures in the Health Insurance Marketplace”

1:26:42 — Join Mike in the studio on a Saturday night…

The Midnight Citizen 236: “Cartoon Graveyard”

1:51:56 — Join Mike in the studio on a Saturday night…

…where he wonders if the self-esteem movement of the 80s made him a millennial snowflake? Nope – he watched the sick entertainment of Jim Henson. Also, anti-antiwork, and VR’s last play. Will we all end up cartoons in a cartoon graveyard?
