  • Episode 171 – Five Answer Boners

    Big Spooky Promo ImageWe’ve had a lot of guests joining us over the last several weeks but it’s time for an episode with just the three of us.  We have three very quick geeky boners to cover before we move on to the important task of answering our new five questions.  The boners have a lot to do with theatrical stuff coming up (go see Big Spooky Radio Spookytime at the Twin Cities Horror Festival) but also video games.  All three of us power through the five answers and that means the next time we have a host only episode, we’ll start reading off your answers!  So send them in!

  • Episode 169 – Pope Francis

    130919_FG_PopeFrancisLiberal.jpg.CROP.article568-largeThe Pope was in the US last week and we got together with our friend Byron Miller to talk about the religious leader even atheists seem to love.  Francis may not be a bad guy but is he as liberal as he seems?  In our conversation about the pope, we talk about visits both Byron and Tim took to the Vatican and the amount of control the Pope has over the decisions of the Catholic Church.  Byron also gets a chance to answer our new five questions!

  • Episode 116 – Dark Dungeons

    0046_01This week, we sat down with Tony Miller and Ronn Bauman to watch “Dark Dungeons,” a faithful adaptation of a Chick Tract of the same name.  For those unaware, Chick Tracks are fundamentalist comic books and the makers of the film got permission to adapt this particular comic as long as they did not produce something satirical.  Instead, they produced something far more entertaining.  The four of us watched the film and then recorded a episode that started with our response to the film and then moved into our thoughts on religion, performing and, above all, gaming.  Our role playing pasts are laid bare for all to see!  We hope you have as much listening as we had recording.

    Correction:  on the closing stinger, Nick says that Dark Dungeons costs $2.50.  Actually, the extras cost $2.50.  The movie itself costs $5.00.  Sorry for the error.

  • Episode 112 – Don’t Stop Not Believin’

    Journey, Dont-Stop-Believing, 2013, davincis demonsThis week we gathered in the luxurious trailer studios to record an episode with our friend Eric Thompson.  Eric (like Tim) grew up in the Catholic Church and he takes us on an exploration of the difference between being devout and being bored.  We learn how Tim ditched church with the help of his Father (who had once been in school to be a Catholic priest), Eric’s Tattoo, and a lot of other interesting things.  Eric also has some good answers for our five questions.
