Alex M Stein is a our first (planned) return guest to the show. He's here with a wonderful collection of essays and stories, "No Mr Bond, I Expect Your Dreams to Die," which, he promises us, is "emotionally" true. He also brought 15 year-old homemade mead, which, we promises you, tastes as good as it sounds. James Gandolfini died and Sean got in trouble on Twitter. How hot will "The Heat" be? The Miami Heat have shitty fans, and Will plans to tell you all about it. What's the best way to handle an eight month erection?

Steven Brandon bring his Aussie wit and candy on the show this week. We discuss sitcoms, Australian and otherwise, comedy writing, and what it means to be a dirty immigrant. Man of Steel came out, so can we please stop discussing it. Sean has never seen Cheers, or Taxi, or Mary Tyler Moore, or American Idol… Will has a new friend of Twitter, could she be the next President of the USA. And Time Warner Cable doesn't want us to have nice things. Summer is here, so strip naked and worship the sun.

Nate Waggoner and Alicia Camden of the podcast "Invitation to Love" join us via a shaky Google Hangout for a bi-coastal show. Can ex-lovers really provide decent romantic advice to the seeking? How creepy is too creepy? Sean doesn't know either. "Man of Steel" crash lands on Earth - time to make wild speculations. "This is the End" threatens to destroy the Earth - time for even wilder speculations. Will has some tough words for the "geniuses" at the Apple Store. And we finish the episode off with a celebration of Mel Brooks and a lot of racist language. Like…a lot.

Tim Thompson, music video director and stop-motion animator, swoops in at the last second to save this episode from the deplorable fate it otherwise would have suffered. He reveals the secret of how he makes films on other people's dime while safely nestled in the comfort of his own home. If "The Purge" were real, who would we kill? Should there be a US version of the Eurovision contest? And Will is worried that his favorite (and most renowned) sex move might one day kill him. Also, Taco Bell attempts a hostile Taco Takeover of breakfast. Summer is here, and with it all those nightly smiles.

Mark Sikes comes bearing news about "Doomed: The Untold Story of Roger Corman's Fantastic Four" and the IndieGoGo campaign set up to help get it off the ground. Hear the story of how this Marvel superhero film has to this day never been theatrically released. The Bluths came back and we swear this will be the last time we talk Arrested Development for a while. Will can't get enough of Will Smith and his wiener kid - is nepotism alive and well in Hollywood? Lots of new summer music came out, hear Sean half-heartedly mention some bands he sometimes sort of listens to. Greeting cards are the worst, and yet, we all give and get them. No canned sentiment to be found on the newest episode of the WSP.
