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.
The guys talk Star Wars movies and TV, go into considerable detail discussing video games from 2015, dive once again into the pros and cons of recasting, and teach you all about the threat of WEREhouses.
Who is the Shockmaster? You’re welcome. We discuss the impending robot uprising, the Spielberg oft-overlooked gem Minority Report, and Sean tries to understand science yet again! Also, chinchillas are super soft and feel great on your FACE.
How did they mess up an open-world Avengers game? Also, what are the best depictions of aliens in film, who the hell is Captain N, what exactly is an MMO, and are space simulators actually fun? By Grabthar's Hammer, I sure hope you're a nerd for this one.
The staggering beauty of an ancient voice, degrading side quests, Steve Urkel’s dueling personas, and let’s get real: paleontologists make stuff up.
Turns out air dryers are not so clean, James Bond movies are not worth one billion dollars, rich people have strange problems, and no one is ever aboard the Enterprise. How about some warm sushi from my belly button?
That sad reality of an aging nerd, the cult classic game Night Trap, and working Loss Prevention at Best Buy! And Tim Robbins still sucks.
We discuss some dark stuff, from death, to Darkseid, to the apocalypse, all the way on down to Michael Jackson. Basically, the human condition is to be awful. This one will cheer you up!
What exactly is… stars? Sean learns science again, and Mike learns clown magic. Also, we discuss the revolutionary film technology used on The Mandalorian called The Volume! Sean, our resident actor, thinks it SUCKS.
The guys talk more about the Green Ranger's flute since anyone has since 1993. When not reminiscing over the two distinct Dragon Flute melodies, they discuss the next Bond, the legal power of a wink, and space colonization. So the usual
We talk a whole lot about that cray-cray astronaut who wore a diaper to drive hundreds of miles without stopping in order to commit a crime. And also some sports at the top, but mostly the astronaut.
