Episode 182: Halloween 2014


Chuck and Brad are joined by Halloween "experts" Nic Hallenbeck and Brian Decoteaux for a spooky talk about the spookiest season of the year! After some chatter about upcoming events and the below Web Coulier, the guys break into topic number one - the animated special known as "Halloween Is Grinch Night." Is it good? How does it fit into the extended Grinch-verse? Hear the unbiased, uncensored review!
The second topic is brainstorming - costume ideas and treat ideas. And while Brad doesn't have many ideas, rest assured they are better than any of the ideas Chuck solicited from friend of the podcast Eric Macksoud.
Chuck then offers his Ultimate-As-Of-Now Halloween Playlist. A ton of songs from a ton of bands! The guys discuss the appropriateness of the songs mentioned and offer suggestions of their own. Listen soon and get in the Halloween "spirit!" (Even that is better than Macksoud's jokes.)

Episode 180: Nick Swardson, Salem, Gratitude, and Marvel News


After the updates from the Providence Improv community and Senior Discount, Chuck regales Brad with some movie driplets - a possible re-visit to the Saw franchise, as well as updates to The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and a Fraggle Rock movie. Chuck then relates a comical misunderstanding online involving one of our good friends and some salacious items on a Wish List.
Chuck and Brad recently went with some pals to see Nick Swardson do stand-up. What did the group think of the show? Chuck talks about some other festive Halloween things they've done recently, then talks about a trip to Salem, MA, and a conflagration with his girlfriend. Brad tells Chuck about his trip to a Jasper Fforde reading/signing, then about his visit to Q Commons, a motivational inspirational lecture series that led to Brad creating a gratitude journal he calls a "brad-itude journal." Chuck thoughtfully considers what he is grateful for from the previous few days and the guyz realize that being thankful for things is good.
Chuck also relates the tale of an online joke that was deleted and expresses his displeasure with the delete-er. A few more news items close out the podcast - Iron Man in Captain America 3? HBO Go for streaming only? And a Marvel Comics Mega-Event that sounds amazing! Wow! Give us a listen!
- Brad

Episode 179: "The Closure-cast" - Part 2


This is the second episode of our "Closure-Cast" two-parter, and features resident lady-boy, guest Mat Fairchild. Chuck and Brad open with the typical improv and Senior Discount show updates, and then dive immediately into the meat of the discussion; Chuck's "goodbye" to bachelor-hood. This is episode two of Chuck, Brad and Mat discussing Chuck's very intentional past two years of being single, before very recently getting into a serious relationship.
After they wrap up their thoughtful look at current dating, Chuck and Brad bring you three "Mini-Casts". These shorter episodes were recorded over the course of Chuck's single life, and provided an outlet for Chuck to talk about bizarre situations in his dating life. They were recorded when the stories occurred, to be release at a later date, to protect the guilty idiots of which the stories are about.
That later date is now. Eric Macksoud joins the party on a few of these very special tales, and the past two years of Chuck's single life are brought to a close.

As promised by Chuck during the episode, he has prepared a "Chuck-rospective" guide; he has prepared a list of previous episodes, for any listeners who'd like to hear some of the more interesting bachelor-hood-related stories recorded over the past two years. Here is his list:
