Utah's Hottest Music!
The influencer strikes again! This time,somehow McCall got AJ's dad on board with something. Where would we be without McCall's hack to turn our 1's into 2's? AJ predicts love and a wacky injury for 2022 while McCall just thinks AJ should check his tires. It's not that mistakes happen at airlines, it's that they don't seem to care whatsoever about it. That being said, McCall is pretty sure AJ made a lady believe he was trying to steal for the Debate At 8. How quickly into a new year can you burn a sick day?
Hopefully no one had travel issues during the holidays, but AJ figured out that a lot of airline employees don't really care if you have a problem. Look no further then his future sister-in-law losing a bag and the airline saying "We have no idea." On the subject of that lost bad, AJ lets McCall decide if he convinced the lost baggage lady that he's a thief. There's also a little room for complaining about Christmas presents and debating how quickly you can burn a sick day.
What goals should be set for 2022 and what were AJ & McCall's favorite memories of 2021? We bet you didn't know that before it was known as Cache Valley it was known as Cows (it really wasn't). If we're going to improve in 2022 why not aim high? Would you rather tomorrow, no new knowledge, become a CEO or Senator? How long would it take to come crumbling down? How much can you save if you don't say goodbye at parties? How would one even do that for the Debate At 8?! You can find appreciation for having your job if you haven't been traded. All the votes and nominees lead us to the worst parker of 2021 in the conclusion of the 2021 tournament.
We're fully in the get together part of the year and you can save two years by not saying goodbye, but how? When can you really get out of saying goodbye when it comes to work, friends or family parties? AJ & McCall made it through another year NOT getting traded, a fun thought exercise that gives you a little appreciation.
In another ironic sense of manifestation, after talking about surviving without power it went out for AJ this weekend. Does anyone know if they actually make rear view mirrors so McCall could put one on her computer? Who wouldn't be using X-Ray constantly if they were one of the first people to discover it. AJ & McCall want to deliver a message of thank you and a message of love and strength ahead of the holidays for the Debate At 8. If you're going to make a list of safety tips for the holidays, you HAVE TO include the Home Alone option.
First off, we need to say thank you for all the contributions made for the food drives AJ & McCall have been part of and Cares for Christmas, while highlighting an awesome individual flying toys down to Kentucky. However, there also is a sucky part of this time of year. Toxic family, tough times, there will be another day and a new year and the journey will continue. Find something small to be happy/grateful for and you can make it.
Bad news for McCall, her new nephews are apparently the worst gift givers in the immediate family. Have you ever been intensively confident? Can you name all eight reindeer? Congratulations to Santa, whose property just went over a one million dollar value. AJ & McCall decide if the confessors for Cache Valley Secrets are on the naughty or nice list. People feel pressure because they'll be judged by company coming over...DUH! That's how you force yourself to actually clean up, though AJ & McCall say they don't check when they're guests...too much for the Debate At 8. Don't let the complaints about coworkers not cleaning up after themselves take away from the sincere thank you for cookies.
It's a bold choice to confess for Cache Valley Secrets right before Christmas week, but it is good to clear your conscience. AJ & McCall will judge if the confessors make the naughty or nice list. Mom was right, sort of, you do get judged by company coming over, though it does seem pretty obvious. Are AJ & McCall checking their host's places to see how clean it is?
AJ FINALLY figured out what he wants for Christmas, but is it too late to ask? Where would cheesecake fall for your likely Christmas desserts? Today's unnecessarily censored Christmas song also has a pretty bad misheard lyric...be careful! Apparently there's a rogue Grinch wandering around the UK destroying houses. Salads, pastas and rice are things you should NEVER put rice on, but people do. Try as he might, AJ can't convince McCall to keep ketchup off of Mexican food. What condiments do you hoard/possibly carry around with you for the Debate At 8? Fake trees can be quite injury dealing.
Why must people put ketchup on such weird things?! Rice? Salad? Pasta? Combos some people said they eat, though AJ can't move McCall off of ketchup on burritos despite almost no one doing it. There are other condiments out there. In fact, AJ & McCall confess to the condiments they horde and/or would carry around with them.
Is it possible a Christmas song could have 'punched' as a lyric? Would you rather have to rhyme everything you say or sing when you talk? Which would get more annoying faster? How in the world can someone trade from a bobby pin to a house? AJ is furious, though has his solution for the housing market. McCall thinks only 7% of people being loaned money ending in a fight is a little low for the Debate At 8. Why did our parents have SO MUCH frosting when we grew up?
AJ refuses to believe you can trade your way up from a bobby pin, or paperclip, to a house but one lady has done it. Wipe your hands of the housing market because all you need to do is start trading from something useless. If there was a chance doing something could end in a fight wouldn't you avoid it. There's a 50/50 shot lending money to someone will go bad, and 7% chance it'll end in a fight. McCall thinks that number is low, but how can it be possible in a world where you can trade your way to a house for the Debate At 8?!
Who hears that it's going to rain and says 'Sounds like taco weather!'?! Shoot your shot, we suppose, but perhaps don't ask McCall out for dinner if she is looking at your badly overdrawn account. Who knew AJ was SO BAD with his Christmas songs? Either the internet is continuing its cruel sense of humor, or the poll 'How long could you tolerate your house without power?' is not a good omen. Joke or not, is AJ a jerk for bringing Tupperware to the work Christmas party? Would McCall ever do that for the Debate At 8? Are AJ & McCall really the entertainment for the party?
The internet continues it's hilarious irony at AJ's expense. With not fun weather, and all the talk about apocalypse kits, how long do you think you could go without power? One of the bosses joked 'to bring Tupperware' to the Christmas party because there will be leftovers, but can you? McCall says no matter what, even if you're told you can, she will not do it. AJ says there's no dignified way to do it...BUT bacon wrapped shrimp!
While tipping may not be thought of as a holiday good deed, how about the story with immediate karma in it? Very rarely is AJ rendered speechless but McCall's hot chocolate addition gets him. How well do you know your Christmas songs? It's time for the annual game of 'Unnecessarily Censored Christmas Songs!' There are plenty of awkward responses you can say, but who in the heck says "Hope you sleep well." to "Hope you have a good weekend!"?! There is a big distinction in the types of chores you can ask to be done as presents, but mostly WHY AREN'T WAL-MART'S LAYOUTS THE SAME?! For the Debate At 8.
Taking part in a food drive, AJ nearly stumbled at a response from one grocery store patron. Who responds to "Hope you have a good weekend." with "Hope you sleep well." Can McCall make any sense of it. Are you allowed to ask for a chore to be done as a Christmas present. AJ determines there's a big distinction between them while McCall wishes someone would navigate the mess of Wal-Marts as a present to here.

Imagine writing your name on a ballot as a joke...and winning?! AJ & McCall have another small win for you, that has been ruled on legally, yet somehow McCall is thinking of bowling balls. We're now into the second round of the Park Narcs Tournament and one of AJ's favorites was already eliminated. Who wouldn't want to save time and money when it comes to Christmas shopping? Mass buying something AND re-gifting are both viable options, though McCall suggest loading up on sewing supplies for the Debate At 8. McCall says she can take 0 otters, while AJ says 3 or 4.
Who wouldn't want to save time or money when it comes to Christmas shopping. First, you can save time by buying a bunch of the same gift, and before you turn your nose up at it, if the gift is awesome no one will care that several people got it, AJ speaks from experience. You can save money but re-gifting. Obviously, there are some general guidelines but it totally is an options. Also, McCall has a solid idea for how to store up gifts for those acquaintances you're not sure what to get. AND she swears it's not sewing supplies!
Do we get to blame McCall for the cold weather? Who would have thought the AJ & McCall Show would be divided by bagles and that AJ was a monster! The life hack to cleaning up a room and FINALLY rearranging it is Christmas decorating! Suck it Producer Butterz, because we are getting a company Christmas party but how are we going to deal with being around coworkers in public? The average American gets four small wins a day, but it should be way more. It's all about your mindset for the Debate At 8. Isn't it a little crazy to use a pine air freshener to cover up your fake tree?
AJ & McCall are going to get a Christmas party after all, suck it Producer Butterz! Plenty has changed, how will they deal with it? The average American has four small wins a day, and if you don't think you do then it is probably your mindset. While it can seem pointless, the tiniest things can be a win and a challenge is issued.
The reaction to AJ & McCall's decorating was...blah. Of course McCall is to blame for the cold weather since she just keeps begging for the snow to go snowboarding, but would she rather be stuck in a ski lift or in an elevator? Apparently, AJ makes it harder on hair stylists with how he gets his haircut but he's not the only one arguing technicalities. Is it possible AJ & McCall put 'neighborhood pressure' on their coworkers when they decorated their studio? How is it possible for the 'non-Christmas' Christmas movies discussion to go smoother than the 'no doubter' Christmas discussion for the Debate At 8? Does having more than one Christmas tree mean you're rich?
If neighborhood peer pressure exists with mowing lawns and ranking leaves then it has to with Christmas decorations also, right? Does that mean AJ & McCall created studio neighbor peer pressure when they decorated theirs? McCall has the key to avoiding it. It was not straight forward trying to pick the top three no doubter Christmas movies, so what's going to happen when AJ & McCall discuss the non-Christmas Christmas movies?!
The brain melt is 100% true this time of year. AJ is CONVINCED one fast food restaurant is messing with its patrons by lying about how much they have available. It's better to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission, right? AJ & McCall are going to decorate the crap out of the studio and really didn't ask anyone. Classic McCall, she's asked to give her three no doubt, favorite Christmas movies and that proves too tall a task. Also, why haven't the elves that work for Santa gone to work for parents or other holidays for the Debate At 8? What's worse; trying to find the present hiding spot or trying to 'accidentally' tear the wrapping paper to see what it is?
There will be plenty of debate to be raged about what's a Christmas movie and what isn't, but how about starting with the top 3 no doubters? AJ thought this was easy, but McCall always has to push the boundaries. Santa has a real stranglehold on the holiday spy network, but couldn't other's use it? Couldn't parents, other holidays or...sadly workplaces contract out the elf?
Apparently, McCall's mulled wine didn't go EXACTLY to plan. What idiot would think they could full healthcare workers by using fake arms to avoid getting a shot? How much would it take for AJ or McCall to drink bologna seltzer? AJ has come around to McCall's side of buying less and less presents, but what about when it comes to family...you don't like? One listener is having an issue with a sister-in-law. How did you get your first Christmas decorations; did you inherit or buy them for the Debate At 8? Will anyone be watching their screen time for the holidays?
AJ & McCall are pretty set on their gift giving policies, but does it apply to family you don't like or don't like you? One listener has an issue with a sister-in-law, but does she actually have to buy a present for her? A friend shattered AJ's mind with a very simple question; did you inherit or buy your first set of Christmas decorations. For AJ, this feels like a level of adulthood not achieved while McCall went overboard.
The base question is; is the story from Florida or not? McCall has two dumb stories, both will crack jokes and then AJ will guess in the new edition of FoN. Story #1 - Homeowner burned down their house to smoke out a snake infestation Story #2 - Guy pulled a flamethrower on his neighbor over a parking dispute
Why in the hell would the government let debt collectors DM you?! McCall can't remember what day it is while AJ apparently had the Mandela Effect happen when it comes to Christmas songs. If our understanding of decorative towels stuck from all the scoldings, then decorations aren't meant to be played with. First, AJ thought it was the Mandela Effect, then he thought it was wrong but he actually wasn't wrong (completely) about the Christmas song. What did you believe for way too long? This is just the start of Cache Valley Secrets; the most delicious dog treats and worst birthday presents, for the Debate At 8. Has anyone ever ACTUALLY eat a prune?
AJ came in fully to prepared that he was wrong with the lyrics, but now he's not so sure. Is this the Mandela Effect when it comes to 'Here We Come a Wassailing'? Either way, parents need to make sure to send their kids out into the world with the right information like how to spell Santa Claus (for McCall) or correct info about skin. This is just the start of Cache Valley Secrets as the worst birthday gift ever, most delicious dog treat and a whole bevy of cheese puns are confessed.
Story #1 - Woman set a slot machine on fire after losing and then was shot by another woman Story #2 - Pizza guy was 'hanging out by himself' in a convenience store parking lot and claimed 'I didn't know I couldn't do that.' Story #3 - Police were carjacked while out investigating another carjacking
Is there a national and international pie day? While AJ & McCall both would love to stay in the Home Alone house (it's an Airbnb), McCall is concerned about travel and AJ says there's something missing to make him totally in. Would you rather get advice from 15 or 115-year-old you? McCall may make her teen energy drink problem worse while AJ would just be curious what the secret to long life was. Is road kill stew a deal breaker in a relationship? If not, not taking a proposal would definitely be as AJ & McCall try and navigate both for the Debate At 8. Chocolate is good, but the #1 gift for the person that has everything?
What would be worse; eating road kill stew or not having a proposal taken seriously? Apparently, a roadside deer made up a stew for one couple who is now concerned they're just too different to be together. AJ & McCall give a consensus no vote on having it, but think it's a healthy boundary that can be set. However, a lady proposing and continually hearing 'I want to do it right.' from her fiance while no planning gets done seems like it's not going to go well for the future of the relationship.
Story #1 - 64-year-old man at the beach was told the bathrooms were closed so he pulled out his machete and threatened the staff Story #2 - Guy claimed the big snake invited him over to his neighbor's house Story #3 - Guy caught speeding called the cops to report a robbery across town
There are definitely cars we've had bad experiences with and can't stand, but are they the psychopath ones? Are inflatable Christmas decorations tacky? How does one become a Professional Organizer? A friend suggested to AJ to help with his apocalypse planning, but he's not sure how one qualifies for that. Experience Gifts have caught on and are better if you have no thing you need, see AJ's family refusing to do money or gift cards, but what are cost effective ones? It's quite the experience to get snowed in, especially with 60 other people. Could you handle this 'extreme camping' for the Debate At 8? Does eight good deeds a month sound like a lot? I think it depends on how you define a good deed.
AJ has made no bones about his frustrations trying to come up with a Christmas list for family when he doesn't need/want anything, so what about an experience gift? The challenge is all AJ thinks of with experience gifts is travel, and that's not cost effective. What are cheaper ways to give an experience? Speaking of a story to tell, 61 people were snowed into a pub with a cover band in England. Could you handle this, let's call it, extreme camping?
Story #1 - A man with a Tesla face tattoo got drunk and flipped a minivan Story #2 - A man couldn't pay for his ED medication so he stole it and then refused to give it back when the pharmacy said they'd let him go Story #3 - A man robbed a video game store...with a clear plastic bag covering his head
Sometimes free still isn't good enough, at least for Producer Butterz. You can still get kidnapped as an adult and AJ & McCall reluctantly admit they've be lured to a stranger's with puppies before. Why in the world would you only participate in the holidays if you have to host? Not hosting is the best! AJ figured out what he wants to ask for when it comes to Christmas presents; help with an apocalypse kit. McCall says a ton of people have them in Utah, but how will AJ's family respond when he berates them to get one also for the Debate At 8. Is Nicholas Cage up to something again?
After inadvertently consuming a LOT of zombie content, AJ and his girlfriend are now all about putting together apocalypse kits. McCall led AJ 'hypothetically' down a rabbit hole for supplies and says the majority of Utah has some kind of kit of their own. Is she right? More importantly, how will AJ's family respond to him asking for survival supplies for Christmas AND insisting they get on board as well?
