About The Show

A wide-eyed optimist tries to convince a couple of skeptics to get on board with their distinctive, sometimes downright unusual obsession. But really, it’s just an excuse for silliness, games, and surprise guests. Hosted by Ben Cassil, Thayer Frechette, and Geoff Kaufman.

Allison Gilbert (@allisonWynifred) is back today to convince you that the Friends characters Joey and Rachel would have made an ideal couple. Sure, most people wanted Ross and Rachel to end up together, but Allison is not most people! A Soap Opera star or a Paleontologist, what is better? We discuss what makes a good couple, the histories of Ross, Rachel, and Joey, and what friend we see ourselves as—including innovative new friend hybrid types. We also discuss whether perhaps Rachel would have been best off staying single in Paris as a fashion designer with her child, and how annoying Ross’s son Ben was. We also talk about how strangely close the Ross and Monica sibling relationship was and if it is akin to the Gyllenhalls. Finally, we run down a pro/con list of Ross and Joey’s attributes and scientifically decide who was a better suitor for Rachel. Is it Gunther? Listen to find out. 

This episode ends with a great segment of “Conspire Me,” Allison’s celebrity conspiracy theory roundup, complete with spooky music. She discusses the new Kardashian pregnancy in depth and Geoff has some hot takes.
