Episode 91: Prometheus, That's My Boy, The Summer of Ska tour

Chuck and Brad open the show with some SkyPunch and Senior Discount updates, then segue briefly into some movie news. They follow that by discussing the email from loyal listener Lou Perella. The meat of the podcasts focuses on two movies, the first of which is "Prometheus." Spoilers abound as the boys break down the plot of the movie, things they didn't understand, and things they really enjoyed.

Once they break down that science-fiction thriller, they switch gears and genres and talk about the Adam Sandler/Andy Samberg comedy "That's My Boy," a film which they saw in a sneak preview a few weeks back. They discuss some of the criticism the film has received and their opinion on that. After they discuss that, the boyz turn their attention to the recent concert featuring Reel Big Fish and Goldfinger (along with Suburban Legends and Big D & The Kids' Table). They hype next week's special "Brammies and Chammies 1997" podcast and sign off for the week. Web Couliers:

Episode 88: Comedy, podcasts, asexuality, and "Beefs With Brad"

Chuck and Brad open the podcast with a discussion of the Web Coulier listed below, which lead into a thorough discussion of comedians making movies. After that, Chuck offers a few Movie Driplets, and the boys talk about expectations for summer movies and the curious decision to move GI Joe to next summer to add 3-D effects. After that, Chuck brings up a "Beef With Brad," in which he takes umbrage at Brad writing that he considered purchasing an iPod to replace his broken Zune.

Chuck talks about a curious case from Japan involving a man who identifies as asexual who had his genitals removed and served them as a delicacy to paying customers. Brad is suitably disturbed. After a frank and rational discussion of cannibalism, Chuck brings up Marc Maron's WTF Podcast, and an article that summarizes the "typical" podcast. Chuck is unimpressed with the article. Episode 88 concludes with Brad relating a heretofore-unheard story in which he both embarrassed himself and demonstrates a form of snobbery.
