Ross and Carrie Find the Source Family: Café Gratitude Edition
Ross and Carrie cough up too much money to attend a one-night dinner inspired by the famous Source Family, a hippie-spiritual commune headed by Jim Baker, who owned one of the first health food restaurants in the country, on LA's Sunset Strip. The group functionally dissolved after the death of Baker (AKA Father Yod) in 1975, but a 2012 documentary brought its memory back to life. Now, local vegan restaurant Café Gratitude, which claims inspiration from The Source Family, hosts its own event, honoring Father Yod and his followers... some of whom attend. Plus, we learn all about Café Gratitude's unofficial connection to the "personal growth" corporation Landmark International, and find out who Father Yod wouldn't vote for in 2020.

Ross and Carrie and The Gentleman Psychic: 2020 Visions Edition
Ross and Carrie continue their newfound tradition of going to a psychic to get personalized predictions for the upcoming year. After being wowed by the very dapper and mysterious Richard-Lael Lillard, also known as "The Gentleman Psychic," they make an evening appointment to visit his Victorian estate for readings and hot tea. The extremely elegant and singularly entertaining Lillard breaks out his tarot deck and offers his prognostications on everything from the upcoming presidential election, to Carrie's love life and friendships, to some dicey news for the Blocher family.  For pics and videos, follow us on Facebook!

Ross and Carrie and Sister Rocky: Failed Predictions Edition
