HI HI HI WE'VE MISSED YOU and we know you've missed us too so let's jump right into #GreysAnatomy Season 2 Episode 19 by discussing: what the eff we've been doing for the last month; our episode summary (06:55); the sexual elephant in the room (11:55); unpacking the bizarre slut-shaming of Meredith Grey (17:40); an overdue Addison/Derek moment of zen (27:50); Denny's annoying machismo (33:55); CALLIE TORRES TIME (39:45); and our BITS (43:50) which include some stellar Song(s) of the Week and our esoteric Medical Fact of the Week (55:00) which is really just a conversation on karma.

Greetings #GreysAnatomy stans! It's the big one, the most watched episode in Grey's history: the Super Bowl episode(s). We recorded a DOUBLE episode so we could discuss Part I AND Part II so strap in for: our episode summary (03:58); Meredith's no good very bad day (07:00); depression as a character and protagonist (13:30); Burke's overdue redemption (31:25); dudes overcompensating all over the place (35:15); when sidekicks become self aware (51:40); Coach Taylor comes to Seattle Grace (58:50); and our BITS (1:20:00) including a ROBUST discussion of this week's music plus our explosive Medical Fact of the Week (1:37:45).

We got a little delayed this week thanks to high school Speech & Debate (YES REALLY) but we're BACK to discuss #GreysAnatomy Season 2, Episode 15. To jump ahead to our reflections on the Women's March, skip to the 56 minute mark. But first: our episode summary (02:38); Seattle Grace nurses on strike (04:00); Izzy's failed attempt at being a White Savior (11:30); Leisha Haley and Sydney Heron Appreciation Hour (22:10); the comforting Ya Ya Sisterhood of Grace Bickham (35:20); and our BITS including some impromptu reactions to photos of necrotizing fascitis (51:10); and ruminations on our experiences at the Women's March (56:37).

It's our first episode of the new year! We're back with our recap of Grey's Anatomy S2E13, "Begin the Begin." If you're interested in jumping to our Medical Fact of the Week (the relatively common practice of assigning gender to intersex newborns/infants), skip ahead to 44:20. Apologies for the abrupt end--we had a corrupt audio file and lost a lot of great material on The Ellen Pompeo twitterstorm of Late 2016.

We start out with some harsh words for R.E.M. fans before diving into our episode summary (02:40); is trout for breakfast sexy: y/n? (03:15); another Derek Shepherd betrayal (05:05); the compelling story of Bex, an intersex teen (08:45); Tréza's unpopular opinion: Denny sucks (22:13); and our BITS (38:35) which include a beautiful monologue by Bailey and our Medical Fact of the Week (44:20).

00:0000:00

In this special New Year's edition of Code Grey(s), we decide to look back on a miserable year and remind each other of the best things we saw, heard, read, and felt more generally. If you want to hear two cynical people do their best imitation of optimism, this is the podcast for you. Thanks to all our listeners and thanks especially to Asheville, NC; 22 A Million by Bon Iver; Jim Dale; Trazodone; The Lobster; Chance the Rapper; Octavia Butler; and the inimitable Lindy West.

What'd you love this year? What are YOU trying to look forward to in 2017? Email us: codegreys@gmail.com

Welcome to another episode of Code Grey(s)! This week we're no less pissed off but we do spend less time cocooned in our anger. Instead, we talk for far too long about: Cherie Jaffe, a character who is not even in this episode nor indeed this show; our episode summary (04:44); You get a quint! You get a quint! Everybody get's a quint! Plus how Addison torpedoes Izzy's future in Peds (08:14); how the second coming of cherie jaffe helps Cristina find a piece of her missing humanity (20:42; HOT TAKES on mint chocolate chip ice cream (23:15); is Izzy's rage-stroke over Meredith warranted? (35:50); and our BITS (41:30) including our disturbing Medical Fact of the Week: the widespread use and consequences of solitary confinement (53:51).

See you next week!

It is indeed much too much right now y'all. Join us for a surprisingly lengthy discussion of Grey's Anatomy Season 2 Episode 10--before we lapse into our feelings re: the US election. (Skip ahead to the 47:58 mark if you're just in it for the politics): we begin with a preview of our election segment because we have a lot of feelings to resolve (3:25) followed by our episode summary (7:55); on boners, erectile dysfunction, and the overall need to de-center the penis (09:00); the lie of shower sex (17:30); the possibility that this ep is an elaborate staging point for a Sex and the City prequel (21:30); shaming Meredith's slut-shamers (31:55); our BITS (42:22) including our Medical Fact of the Week: a post-mortem on the United States of America (47:58).

Thanks for your patience over the last few weeks--we'll see you next week for S2E11.
