Episode 188: Comics Come Home, Big Hero 6, Louis CK, and The Room


Chuck and Brad kick off the week with some updates - Senior Discount has a show tomorrow, on Thanksgiving Eve! Check them out!
Recently, Chuck and Brad went with friends and family to the Comics Come Home benefit starring, among others, Denis Leary, Marc Maron, Jimmy Fallon, and Jim Gaffigan. What did the guys think of the experience? Who had the funniest set? Once they've answered those (and other) questions, Chuck relays the tale of his trip to his girlfriend's brother's wedding. He finds this night to be podcast-worthy based mostly on the food there. Appetizers ahoy!
The Jake Gyllenhall movie Nightcrawler came out and the guys discuss their thoughts on that, as well as the Disney 3D-animated movie Big Hero 6. In less-pleasing movie news, the guys also went to see Dumb and Dumber To. So they discuss that as well. Chuck tells Brad about his recent trip to a taping of The Jerry Springer Show.
More recently, C&B went to see Louis CK do standup in Boston in a pretty intimate venue. Was Louis on his game, or did having the comedy heavyweights Chuck and Brad in the house throw him off? (Spoiler alert: he was, and we did not.) After that, they headed to see a midnight showing of cult classic The Room, accompanied by a Q&A with Director/Actor Tommy Wiseau.
In more festive news, the guys recently celebrated Thanksgiving with friends, then came home to watch the most recent WWE PPV Survivor Series and its surprising ending. All this and more on episode 188!

Episode 187: Macksoud Tales, Chuck Ragan, and a Broken Guitar


Once again, Chuck and Brad are joined by Eric Macksoud, in his first appearance as a member of Senior Discount. After introducing the first Web Coulier about Jerry Seinfeld and Wale, conversation turns to the second, as the three idiots discuss NoFX lead singer's interaction with a fan. Chuck drops some movie news on the group, spilling the beans about the forthcoming film Geezer, starring, among others, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong.
Macksoud has some stories after that. He shamelessly brags about taking a young lady's virginity when he was in England, then relays the tale of the time he was in the "American Idol Experience" at Disney World. Macksoud is a weird dude.
Chuck and Brad try to run down the events of the past month, beginning with a Rob Zombie movie night. What did they think of House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects, and Lords of Salem? A brief mention of the trip to the Roger Williams Zoo Jack-o-Lantern spectacular, then an accounting of Chuck's trip to Brooklyn to see one of the Alkaline Trio discography shows.
Speaking of music, Chuck talks about his experience with Chuck Ragan when they played together at a recent show in West Warwick. Did Chuck Ragan demonstrate the good nature that matches his reputation?*
The music talk hits a sour........note......after that, as Chuck reveals the terrible truth about breaking Macksoud's guitar on the day of their very first show together. In fact, a lot of things went wrong at Senior Discount's show with Bad Larry. Find out about all of them!**
Also, we talk about Brad's to North Carolina, and Senior Discount's show in Boston. Whew!

Episode 186 - Our Florida Adventure - Part 3


Recently, Chuck and Brad went to Florida with some of their pals, and this part three of the three-part episode. Let's lay it on the line here - this week's series of episodes that are more for the superfans of the Chuck and Brad Podcast, as they are basically the audio equivalent of home movies. Not the most exciting, hilarious or erotic series of episodes - just the recording of a good vacation with some good friends. This final Florida podcast is the final section of that trip, covering a shopping day, night in Downtown Disney, a day at Hollywood Studios, Halloween night, and the final lazy day in town.
This episode was recorded while still on the trip, while still in the townhouse we rented in Florida. Chuck and Brad were joined on this journey (both literal and figurative) by podcast mainstay Patrick Dennis and newcomer Sarah Reynolds. Much fun is had at everyone's expense, but especially Lou Perella's expense, as we wasn't there to record with us.

Here are some "exciting" highlights: background information on planning our trip, some expressions of anxiety, the initial flight and associated trouble therewith, arrival in Florida, a surprising shopping expedition, meeting up with Lou, and a day in Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure. Also a gluttonous feast.

Episode 183: Paul and Nick in "Bad Larry Returns!"


Bad Larry returns! Back in April, Nick and Walt from Bad Larry came on the show to tell the story of Bad Larry.
THIS time, Nick returns, but with Bad Larry co-founder PAUL at his side, to tell some new stories from the history of the band. Why did Paul and Nick have a physical fight onstage? Why were the Bad Larry boys weary about getting too close to the antics of Senior Discount when we all first met? Does the entire local Rhode Island scene have a problem with Senior Discount consistently claiming to "co-headline" shows? And does Chuck give a shit?
Find out on the new episode!
- Chuck

P.S. Spoiler alert: The answer to one of those questions is "No." Take a guess which one.
