  • Episode 190 – Disney vs. Universal

    Epcot-Vs-Universal-620x330This week, frequent guest Matt Allex joins us and he brought his son along.  Along with Tim the three of them go through the process of explaining the plusses and minuses of going to either Walt Disney World or Universal Studios when they have only one day to spend in Orlando.  Things go pretty well for a while until Matt’s son says something about Splash Mountain that he can’t take back.  Really, kid?  That’s what you think?  Well too bad for you that someone else writes the intros for these episodes!

  • Episode 184 – Spoilers!

    filepicker-8w8n1fNFQ4iomLKdZRJ8_SpoilerThis episode, we talk about spoilers.  Don’t worry – we don’t spoil anything for you.  At least not much of anything.  Instead, we talk about the concept of spoilers and what the protocol should be around them.  When is it OK to stop worrying about spoiling something for someone?  And what constitutes a spoiler anyway?  Seriously – we do talk spoilers on a few recent movies and TV shows (including Game of Thrones and Star Wars) so if you don’t want us to spoil anything for you, we’ll catch you next week!

    We talk about John Kovalic’s spoiler blame game post so here’s a link!
