ANNOUNCER: Hello, Smash Boom besties. We're going to be back with a new debate next week. Hooray!
But this week we want to share with you an episode of our sister podcast Forever Ago hosted by Joy Dolo. You may remember Joy from such debates as Bigfoot versus mermaids, mustard versus mayo, and bubblegum versus gummy bears. She's a star, a delight, and well a joy. All right, here's a bit of Forever Ago.
ASA: Hey, Joy.
Joy, you in here?
Oh, there you are. Listen, you will not believe what happened to me today. I--
Why are you resting your face against the microphone like it's a pillow? And why is there drool on your cheek? And why are you wearing a blue satin eye mask with the words quiet please embroidered on it? Hang on, are you asleep in the studio?
Uh-oh, I guess you forgot we were supposed to tape an episode today. Joy, time to wake up. Open those peepers. It's a beautiful day.
Wow, you're a deep sleeper. Let's try this.
Joy, wakey-wakey eggs and bakey.
JOY DOLO: Oh, I'm scared of the ponies.
Bedazzled goldfish, [YAWN] peanut butter baloney sandwich.
ASA: This is serious. OK, come on in, everybody.
And a one, and a two, and a three.
[MARCHING BAND MUSIC]
JOY DOLO: Hey, Asa. Is it time for marching band practice already?
ASA: Are you OK? You seem really tired.
JOY DOLO: I was just resting my eyes. I must have fallen asleep. I had a super busy weekend.
ASA: Joy, it's Wednesday.
JOY DOLO: I know. That's how busy it was. It was literally the most exciting, jam-packed, fun-filled glitter cannon rainbow unicorn weekend ever. I had a sleepover with 10 of my best friends and all their pets, made a triple-layer coconut crumb cheesecake with extra crumb, went whitewater rafting, judged a taco eating contest, [YAWN] and finished writing my memoir, A Joy to Behold, the Joy Dolo Story.
ASA: Whoa, no wonder you're exhausted.
Wait, what's that furry lump on your shoulder?
JOY DOLO: This is Kevin Bacon.
ASA: The actor?
JOY DOLO: No, Kevin Bacon, my pet Guinea pig.
I was supposed to take him last weekend to see that new coming-of-age teen drama, Are You There, God? It's Me, Marsupial. It's about a koala navigating the pressures of middle school. Kevin loves teen dramas.
But when I told him we didn't have time to see it, he was so disappointed. Have you ever seen a disappointed Guinea pig, Asa? It's not pretty. It's not pretty.
ASA: Joy maybe it's just me, but it sounds like you're trying to cram a little too much into the weekend. I mean, taco contest, Guinea pig movie dates? The weekend is only two days.
JOY DOLO: Wait, say that again.
ASA: You're trying to cram too much in.
JOY DOLO: No, no, no, the other part.
ASA: Guinea pig movie dates?
JOY DOLO: No, no, no, the other other part.
ASA: The weekend is only two days?
JOY DOLO: That's it. We have to figure out a way to make the weekend longer. Who says a weekend should only be two days anyway? Why not 3, or 4, or 6?
ASA: I would love a six-day weekend.
JOY DOLO: Yes. Think of all the sleepovers, and whitewater rafting, and coconut cream cheesecake we'd have time for. To the Forever Ago laboratory. But first, mind if we get lunch? I'm having the strangest craving for peanut butter baloney sandwiches.
Welcome to Forever Ago from APM studios. I'm Joy Dolo.
ASA: I'm Asa. And this is Kevin bacon, the Guinea pig.
JOY DOLO: Today, we're talking all about the weekend. And we're at the Forever Ago history laboratory to figure out a way to make it longer.
ASA: Um, Joy, this is a garden shed.
Man, it is so dusty in here.
Look, even Kevin Bacon's tiny nose is running from all the dust bunnies.
JOY DOLO: It looks like a garden shed, but check this out.
[BILLOW AND WHIRL]
ASA: Whoa, where did-- where did that keyboard come from?
JOY DOLO: Now, you just whisper the secret password into this hidden microphone. [CLEARS THROAT] Harry Styles solid gold toilet.
And voila, welcome to the Forever Ago history lab.
ASA: Wow, there's a whole other room back there. This is really rad. Look at all this fancy equipment. Wait, what's that tiny little mansion over there?
JOY DOLO: Oh, that's Kevin Bacon's Guinea pig villa. I'll just tuck him in there.
Who's a good piggy? Your mama's best little piggy. Yes you are.
ASA: Oh and check out these big cushy armchairs. It's like sitting on a marshmallow on a cloud on a pile of mashed potatoes.
JOY DOLO: Oh, yeah, these are my thinking chairs. I like to be extra comfy when I'm pondering big historical questions like today's where did the weekend come from?
ANNOUNCER: To dive into the history of the weekend with Joy, search for Forever Ago wherever you listen to Smash Boom Best. And they're going to be back with brand new episodes starting Wednesday, November 8, so you have time to catch up on the first three seasons until then. Again, search for Forever Ago. OK, see you next week. Bye.
