"Time Crisis, back once again. The world is changing. The McRib is back, for the first time in eight years. We'll be talking McRibs, as well as a Sweet Chili Heat World Premiere of the new Mountain Brews EP. All that, plus friend of the show Hannah Fidell and Nick Robinson, the star of her new FX show A Teacher, swing by. This is Time Crisis."



  • Aaron Olson - musician, of Mountain Brews
  • Hannah Fidell - film and television director
  • Nick Robinson - actor


The Crew dig into the history of the McRib and the logistics behind creating the meat slurry sandwich. Aaron Olson joins to debut the new Mountain Brews EP, Raised in a Place, and each track gets a deep dive. Hanna Fidell stops by to talk about the asteroid-proof Oreo vault and talk Costco with Nick Robinson before the pair discuss their show A Teacher. The episode closes with some investigation into the McDonald's Filet-O-Fish and Hannah revealing that she is pregnant.
