Weekly comedy nerd podcast covering TV, video games, pop culture, and science with a unique spin: hilarious fake commercials.
Joe is possibly being haunted... by the living. And to whom do we owe thanks for making sci-fi and fantasy budgets bigger? Do people remind you of people, and some people don't? That's basically a quotation from this show... Jesus...
We feel a little sorry for women actually named Karen. We also talk SPACE, in a surprising turn of events, followed by a robust discussion of prestidigitation and other forms of illusion.
Do COVID vaccines grant superpowers? We talk about lesser and greater X-Men—X-People, more accurately. We also try to find sources of income for broke superheroes. How are you broke? Try harder.
The disparity between violence and nudity in American television, Sean and Joe get surprise Star Wars-related presents from Mike, we address casting announcements for the Obi-Wan series, and we rank the Star Wars movies! Basically… let’s talk Star Wars! Again!
We talk about recasting, particularly in the case of Batwoman and Black Panther, the popularity of various superhero shows, and we finally delve into the Snyder Cut. Tensions are high, passions are burning, and words are slurring.
The merits and demerits of Justin Long and Ace Ventura are both discussed at much too much length before we quickly devolve into a frank and serious talk about Superman's jizz.
Heath Ledger: Sympathy Oscar, or performance of a lifetime? We also compare the travails of our favorite hobbits and address the hottest drugs in town: the COVID vaccines and WandaVision.
Joe and Sean scheme to torture Mike for having interests, and a lot of dicks get blasted before an earnest discussion about business etiquette and movie franchises.
Sounds from space! Or IS it space? Mike disagrees. Can a moon have a moon? On the entertainment front, Sean has opinions on Tenet, we have man crushes (men crush?) on Michael Sheen, and de-aging technology still sucks.
We talk about our college years, the heavily censored edition. We also discuss WandaVision, good shows, bad shows, and the value of ending a story on a high note.
Aphantasia is about 14% as real as fibromyalgia. Having a twin is either great or horrible, depending on whether you’re Sean. Also, the late-night Jimmys are either made of teflon or there’s some kind of anti-cancel conspiracy going on there. We get edgy this week.
Sean gets his first gaming computer and, unrelated, becomes an important piece of a salacious criminal investigation. We also talk about beer nearly as much as we drink it.
We investigate supernatural goings-on at Sean’s workplace via the testimony of one codename Madame Xanadu. Unrelated, we also discuss volcanoes and the unbearably slow rate of discovery in science.
The guys reminisce about being children of the ‘90s. What was the internet like during those early years? How did people get their fix of adult content? What the hell was Altavista? All answered.
Wayne’s World, pasties (the pies, pervert), an Indiana Jones video game, cheerleaders, marching band, John Philip Sousa, and, obviously, the sousaphone: AKA, the wearable tuba. We spend more time talking about tubas this week than any other podcast in history.
We ring in the New Year with a (literally) sober discussion about Among Us, Cyberpunk, failed video game launches, and jettisoning people from airlocks. Importantly, can you land a 747 in Greenland, and how much do spiders weigh? Ballpark.
Here’s a surprise: We talk about Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and video games! Darth Vader’s only vulnerability, the surprise game of the year: Hades, and then obviously we talk about… prostates?
Directors who learn from their mistakes, the elaborate and ridiculous politics of the Star Wars prequels, neckbeards, simps, and Uruk-hai! Oh my!
Endure the first Christmas single produced entirely by S.C. Keller, Biotic Warlord of Happy: "What Even Is Christmas Is to Me?" A Billboard Top 4,815 record. According to THIS IS SUPER DUPER REAL NEWS I PROMISE dot com
We discuss the art of language in fantasy and sci-fi (which is more interesting than it sounds), crappy local commercials and their perpetrators, animals that hate their owners, and of course [BABY YODA'S REAL NAME]! A lot of nonsense this week.
If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.
