Episode 160: Perceptions of Chuck, Godzilla, and The Book of Mormon

Chuck and Brad are joined for this episode by local flame-headed caveman Brian Decoteaux. After some updates about Brad and Chuck, the three talk up next week's Live Podcast - for more information, please see the below Web Coulier. Chuck talks about his weekend, and this leads to an in-depth, revealing conversation about how Chuck feels he is perceived outside of his immediate social circle. He feels as though he is viewed as a villain and wonders why that is.
After that exercise in self-reflection, Brian and Chuck talk about the newly-released Godzilla movie. This review is actually spoiler-free! Finally, the three talk about their recent trip to see The Book of Mormon in Providence. This leads to a discussion about religion, motivation, and the ethical development of society as a whole. Typical Chuck and Brad Podcast stuff.

Episode 159: Music Videos, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and Our Top 30 Superhero Movies

This week's show begins with Brad grousing about something or other, then plugging his upcoming improv show. This leads to Brad and Chuck discussing the upcoming live podcast performance and how excited they are for it - link below. They then discuss the Web Coulier for the music video, which leads into a brief discussion about music videos and their place as art. Chuck then offers one tiny driplet of movie news before the guyzos change topics.
Their trip to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was this past weekend - how did they like it? What did they think about it? What were their opinions? Find out the answers to these and many other questions as they discuss the film, first going spoiler-free and then going spoiler-ful for more than the twelve minutes they promise.
A rare planned ranking exercise finds C&B chatting about their favorite superhero movies of the relatively recent past. Which films line up? Which films differ wildly? And what takes home the top spot for each of our heroes? Just...just listen to this week's episode. I'm trying to write a teaser that hints a little bit at the content without giving too much away. It's never an easy job, and honestly, I'm a little tired right now and can't figure anything clever out. - Brad

Episode 158: Chuck and Brad Catch Up & the Ska Goes Solo Weekend

Chuck and Brad start Episode 158 with some plugs for upcoming events, including the next Live Podcast (May 30, AS220 in Providence)! Woo! After that, they talk about the past month of their lives, both in terms of media experienced (a surprisingly small amount) and personal stories. Hear their feelings about The Raid 2 and Dear Mr. Watterson, Brad's relaxing trip to Indiana and Chuck's very similar trip to a strip club for a......*sigh*.....MILF contest.
That brings the boyz to last weekend and their experiences dealing with the Ska Goes Solo shows. Hear about some of the behind-the-scenes aspects of the interview with Chris from Less Than Jake! Marvel at the interactions with the mentally ill! And gasp as you hear about Brad's embarrassing moment at Sunday's show in Boston! From there, the guyz headed to Springfield, MA, to see comedian Aziz Ansari do an amazing set. The group then had some less-than-stellar restaurant experiences before the long trip home that ended the weekend.
