Episode 173: Oddball 2014 and Charitable Challenges

Local ragamuffin Brian Lau joins Chuck and Brad for the 173rd edition of the Chuck and Brad Podcast. The guys start out with a plug for a show featuring Podcast Pal Matt DiChiara and his band The Copacetics - see the Web Coulier below! Chuck brings up some movie and TV Driplets, including the theatrical re-release of Saw, and the possibility of a re-vamped Full House reunion show. More TV news follows, with information about the Zach Galifianakis show being picked up by FX. The last bit of news concerns Against Me! deciding to release a live album and other assorted media. Exciting!
Brad takes the reins next, talking about how he was hoping to start a viral sensation with the Bradley Nice Thing Challenge. It is not viral. They take a second to discuss their feelings on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge currently dominating your social media feed.
Finally, the three amigos talk about the Oddball Comedy Fest 2014. B Lau tells his hellish travel story simply to get to the venue, and all three talk about the cavalcade of comedians they consumed that evening - including a special surprise!
Also, Brad would like to note that the story in this episode (in which he tortures a mouse) is "beyond the statute of limitations". It is a sick, sad, day.

Episode 172: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Chuck's Relationship Views

The one hundred and seventy-second episode of A2D begins with updates about Brad's future improv plans and what Senior Discount is working on. Once the pleasantries are dispensed with, Chuck shares some exciting news about the upcoming film The Ring 3, the Lonely Island movie, and Kevin Smith's next project (which has Johnny Depp involved!). Following those movie driplets, Chuck and Brad review the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. What did they think of Michael Bay's involvement? Who else could have played the Shredder**? How was Will Arnett's performance? These important questions - and more! - are answered.
Following the discussion about CGI and stunts in movies that ends the previous section, Chuck gets personal and talks about relationships and his recent views on them. The boys discuss how they feel about dating and what it means to be single, to be in a relationship, and whether or not relationships are worth it. Some unflinching honesty from our two heroes this week.

** - It's Brad. And he calls himself "The Bradder."

Episode 171: "Now We Know What a Steak Fry Is."

Episode 171 finds Chuck and Brad joined by their celebrity doppelgangers, as Wade Bernier and Brian Decoteaux join them for some rousing discussions. C&B talk about their trip to a recent Against Me! show in Providence and talk about the energy of the evening. The discussion continues with talk about recent Marvel movie "Guardians of the Galaxy." Chuck talks about the "birthday show" that Senior Discount performed in, and about how the pod pals brought their recording set-up to allow Chuck's friends to record birthday wishes all night (to be posted at the end of this episode).
Chuck talks about his recent visit to Boston Comic-Con to visit Patrick and shop, and Brad talks about going to visit Patrick and resent crowds. The boys then fill in Wade and Brian on the recent show Chuck played with Kris Roe of The Ataris. Was Kris a good guy, or just another celebrity looking to make Brad feel bad?
Finally, Chuck and Brian talk about a disturbing night they had with forty middle-aged men and two strippers. It's pretty gross - even by our lax standards! This is one of the most sexually graphic podcast stories we've done. You've been warned!
Once that is out of the way, the podcast gives way to some more positivity, as the birthday wishes that were wished to Chuck at his birthday show are added on to the episode and shared with the world. Such sweet messages could only be meant for one man.
