Episode 120: This Is The End, Man of Steel, Dan Soder, and Mick Foley

Episode 120 features the wonderful and multicolor-coiffed Cindy Montville joining Chuck and Brad! After some Senior Discount updates - including TWO show announcements! - and a discussion of the below Web Couliers, C&B dive into some live events they've recently attended. They discuss rising comedic star Dan Soder's set at Nick's Comedy Stop in Boston and review it thoroughly. Once that is done, the boyz can invite Cindy to join the discussion about recent movie "This Is The End." How do they feel about the comedic vehicle starring podcast fans James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, and Jonah Hill?
Once that is done, they talk about Mick Foley's recent show in Fairhaven, and how the Hardcore Legend/New York Times bestselling author is an entertaining storyteller in person. Brad laments not making more of an impression while in line for Mick's autograph. Finally, the three pals talk about the new Superman film "Man of Steel." (Note: Brad almost kills Chuck during this segment, I believe. Unintentionally.) They discuss the burdens of films that have to tell origin stories and how this movie raises the bar for fight scenes in superhero movies. A very fun podcast, brought to you by the good people at America Online.

Episode 118: E3 2013 - Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo

Episode 118 of the podcast features special guests Abe Correia and Wade Bernier. The four cool studs (not "drool duds" as detractors have called them) discuss the recent Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3). The four horsemen start by talking about Microsoft's press conference, discussing some of the Xbox One's announced features, and provide pros and cons for these features. They talk about the Xbox 360, and also some Microsoft exclusives.
From there, the conversation moves to Sony's press conference. Some brief discussion of PS3 releases, then they chat about the Playstation 4, and the advantages (and disadvantages) it displays compared to the Xbox One.
Once Sony is dissected, the four connect about the Nintendo announcement of upcoming games for the Wii U. They're all excited for the games you'd think they'd be excited for. The podcast closes with all four offering their thoughts on next-gen systems.

Episode 117: Chuck Staton's High School Journal and the new "Star Trek"

Episode 117 of the C&B PC (as the cool kids call it) opens with C and B (as the nerds call them) discussing the upcoming video game Payday 2, then segue into a discussion on purchasing games for systems that have already had their successors announced.
After that, some entertainment tidbits are covered. Fat Mike will be recording with Against Me! for an unnamed project! Wow! What do Brad and Chuck think about Dan Harmon's return to Community? And what did the boyz think of the new Star Trek movie?
Recently, Chuck found a journal he kept (by the side of the bed) during his senior year of high school and first year after he graduated. Stories he shares through the words of his 17 and 18-year-old self include the story of his first kiss, an almost-hookup, and his first....other experiences with girls. He shares some sad, sexy, and some sexy-yet-sad stories from that time period as well, all described with the grace and restraint of a teenager writing something that's not designed for public consumption. Enjoy!
