Episode 164: The Story of Glen and Short Handed Goal

Episode 164 of the Chuck and Brad Podcast finds the guys with another guest in studio - Glen Marshall, of local ska-punk band Short Handed Goal. After some promotion for the upcoming Guttermouth show (featuring both Senior Discount and Short Handed Goal on the undercard, along with several other awesome local bands), the guys talk a little bit about a listener email and share their thoughts on Wii U stuff. They also talk about the below Web Coulier and their sheer childlike wonder at the enduring popularity of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
From there, C&B turn their attention to G, and get the story of not only his band - Short Handed Goal - but also his history with music, his takes on songwriting, and a very special Chuck Staton moment from Glen's past. It's an action-packed hour or so on this week's episode - enjoy!

Episode 163: First Impressions, E3, and Chuck's New Philosophy

This week's episode starts with some lighthearted banter about the boyz' evening dinner plans and how they had to be adapted. From there, we hear about Brad's upcoming improv shows and Chuck/S*D's upcoming rock shows. Chuck then offers some Movie Driplets (TM pending) about the casting of Gambit, the director of Dr. Strange, and the new director for Ant-Man.
Brad and Chuck then discuss first impressions - how hard it is for Brad to make not only positive first impressions, but any first impressions at all. They talk about why that is, what it should be, and how changes can be made. They also joke about the first impressions people have of Chuck and talk about specific interactions that demonstrate certain aspects of Chuck's personality. (They are later joined by Podcast Pal Niki Holden who offers her take on meeting Brad for the first time.) From there, we hear what C&B have to say about the recent E3 event and the announcements by Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony - what games have the guys foaming at their shared mouth?
Chuck then tells Brad (and you, the podcast audience) about a change in his working situation, and how it is designed to inflict maximum enjoyment on him and everyone around him this summer.

Episode 162: A Million Ways to Die in the West, Days of Future Past, and a Review of the Live Podcast

The podcast opens with Chuck and Brad chatting and giving updates about their respective projects, then immediately segues into discussion about the new movie "A Million Ways to Die in the West." Is it worth seeing? Listen, and find out!
The guys move on to talk about another new movie - X-Men: Days of Future Past. While both Chuck and Brad both enjoyed that movie, they had some issues with continuity involving the other films in the X-Men franchise. However, Chuck and Brad love to focus on solutions (sometimes), and take it upon themselves to craft a storyline that resolves these continuity errors and ACTUALLY DO A GOOD JOB coming up with a plan that makes sense! You're welcome, Stan Lee.
At this point in the evening, Chuck and Brad talk a little bit about the live podcast and pilot premiere, then are joined by Wade Bernier and Tyler Cornell, two guests from the audience of the Live Podcast. They break down the show segment by segment and discuss how they each felt about each piece and how the show (as a whole) compared to the first live podcast. Get some behind-the-scenes scoop on what went in to making this comedy event happen!
