  • Episode 254 – Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2

    landscape_xlarge-2This week we take a look at the newest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2!  While hate to be an echo chamber, we end up being one as we talk about how much we enjoyed the film.  So if you hated the movie, this podcast will likely annoy the hell out of you.  Or it will convince you why you are wrong.  Either way, those of you who haven’t seen it yet will want to avoid this podcast because we spoil the shit out of it (TM).  We are Groot.


  • Episode 253 – Heartland Institute Bullshit

    whyscientists2dWebThis week, we are joined by bio anthropologist Greg Laden to talk about “Why Scientists Disagree About Global Warming,” a bullshit book distributed by the Heartland Institute to science teachers.  Being actually qualified to speak on the topic of climate change, Greg helps us unpack why the book is bullshit as well as why the Heartland Institute wasted money by distributing the book in the first place.  He also has a blog called “Greg Laden’s Blog” and he explains why it’s called that.


  • Episode 252 – Breath of the Wild

    zelda-breath-of-the-wild-walkthrough-guide-tips-4857-148829841233Hey – in case you haven’t heard, there is a new Nintendo console.  In case you also haven’t heard, a new Legend of Zelda title was released at the same time as the console.  All three of us have been playing Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild a lot.  So much, in fact, that it is hard to believe we’ve actually found enough time to record and post episodes of our podcast.  We actually did, though, and here’s an episode about Breath of the Wild.  Spoiler alert: it’s awesome. Also, we have the first listener responses to our newest batch of five questions!


  • Episode 251 – Shut up Betty, I’m Trying to Pray to Mecca

    14924-200This week our guest is Dave Meyers, who won a guest spot on our podcast through a generous donation to Fearless Comedy during Die Laughing.  Dave wanted to talk to us about his belief that it takes a lot of strength to have faith in god.  We don’t all agree but we had a really interesting conversation about our differences.  We then engage in mutual round of five questions because he brought some for us and we already had some for him.  There wasn’t enough time for all ten so we came up with a compromise.


  • Episode 250 – X-Men Fools Gold

    hero_5This week, we take a look at the controversy surrounding the recent X-Men: Gold #1 comic.  Muslim artist Ardian Syaf stirred up a lot of anger after including some arguably anti-semitic “easter eggs” in his drawings.  To understand what is going on, it helps to know that the messages were in support of a movement against recently ousted Jakarta governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama.  He was charged with blasphemy for criticizing the Koran (although it would appear he didn’t actually do that but we’ll get into that during the podcast).  We talk about the whole mess with our guest, Marvel super fan Mark Sherman.  Mark also becomes the first guest to answer our new five questions!

    For more, here’s an article from Bleeding Cool with several relevant links.

    Also interesting is this piece by G. Willow Wilson, who is also a Muslim.

    And hey – here’s one of the panels in question.

  • Episode 248 – Logan

    20161021_n_nerdistnews_logantrailer_1x1This week, we take a look at the latest installment in the X-movie franchise, Logan. This partial adaptation of the Old Man Logan storyline from the comics is reported to be Hugh Jackman’s final appearance as Wolverine and before you listen to the episode, we will warn you that we are going to spoil the shit out of the film. If you don’t want to know what happens, there are other fine episodes in which we don’t discuss this film and, as a result, we don’t spoil any of it.  Check those out.  After discussing our thoughts on the movie, we really for sure this time read off the last of the answers to our old five questions.  Next week, we debut a new five questions so you can look forward to that!


  • Episode 247 – Live Town Hall

    Town-Hall-Meeting-4This week’s episode was recorded live at Die Laughing 2017.  We invited our audience to ask us any question they wanted.  In addition to questions from the live audience, we fielded them from Twitter and Facebook.  Basically, we talked about anything and everything our listeners wanted to hear us talk about.  It was a lot of fun and pretty crazy.  We also gave special dispensation to Jeremy Stomberg for a late response to our five questions!


  • Episode 246 – No Sternum for Schumer

    6c5d8739cdf488daf970bc36c1a403fcOn this week’s episode, we take a look at Amy Schumer’s Leather Special on Netflix.  We all watched it and in spite of being fans of Schumer’s comedy, we all came away dissatisfied.  We use the special as a window into a conversation about comedic theory, which is something comedians won’t shut up about.  We also make a shocking announcement about our five questions!  What is the shocking announcement?  You’ll have to listen to find out!

    PS: Amy’s response to some of the negative reviews of her show is here.  We are all fans of her previous work so this response doesn’t really apply to us.  But it is interesting.
