Episode 204: Bickering in Relationships, American Sniper Libel, the Joys of Filming, and Fixing Chappie


Episode 204 begins with Brad correctly introducing the podcast on the first try. After some Senior Discount and Brad updates, the guys talk about bickering in relationships and how that works and looks. From there, it's a brief discussion on anger and how the guys demonstrate that (with a stirring example from Chuck's home life). Chuck has Movie Driplets about Super Troopers 2 and a new Lego movie.
Podcast Pal Patrick Dennis wrote himself a letter a few years ago, and the guys take a somber look at the letter as they broadcast Patrick's private thoughts to the world. Also...what's up with the new Nintendo console? Chuck and Brad move on to a topic frequent listeners enjoy - their understanding of the law, as they discuss the libel case brought by Jesse Ventura against "American Sniper" Chris Kyle.
Happier topics include T-Mobile's announcement of Music Freedom, and the free music streaming offered by the carrier. Also, who are some of the characters in the new Mortal Kombat game? There's some speculation between C&B about which character will die in Avengers 2 before they move on to discussing their own filming project and the glee they are taking in it. Finally, Chuck and Brad debut a new segment called "Chuck and Brad fix..." and use that segment to discuss, spoil, and fix the movie "Chappie."

Episode 203: The Story of The Down and Outs


Episode 203 finds Chuck and Brad joined in the studio by Paul and Adam of local band The Down & Outs. After some Chuck and Brad Updates, the guys talk about the D&O's show this Sunday, then kick off some discussion of movie news. Kevin Smith has said they're going to be doing a Mallrats 2 - what do these four fine fellows think of that? From there, the conversation centers around the news that popular band Fishbone is crowdfunding their legal defense fund after being sued for 1.4 million dollars by a woman who was injured when Fishbone's singer stage-dove and landed on her. Hear the hot takes of three musicians and Brad's quiet breathing as the discussion heats up!
The interview of Paul and Adam starts there. The guys cover their background as individuals, musicians, their influences, the formation of the band, a riveting discussion about whether or not taking music lessons adds to the artistry and more! The current Providence music scene is discussed, and the world is warned about Chris from Less Than Jake, and the future of The Down and Outs is teased. A fun interview for all!

Episode 202: 50 Shades of Grey, Kingsman, and the Parks & Rec Finale


Episode 202 starts out with the traditional mix of nonsense and updates from Chuck and Brad, then they discuss the new Justin Bieber Roast promo (listed below in Web Couliers) and Justin Bieber in general. From there, they delve into some news, as Chuck shares Movie Driplets about Alien 5, an Indiana Jones fan film, Spider-Man's writer, the Walking Dead spin-off, HBO NOW, Tron 3, and more Ghostbusters news.
After movie driplets, Chuck spices things up with some Music Driplets. Wow! There's talk about Less Than Jake or possibly Laura Jane Grace doing entrance music for wrestler Sami Zayn, Tom Delonge's solo record, and moving the universal record release day to Fridays.
Once the driplets are done, C&B revisit an old familiar segment: 60-second reviews. They give brief, to-the-point reviews of the new Spongebob movie, SNL's 40th Anniversay Special, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, Foxcatcher, Mad Max, One Bad Choice, the new Aziz Ansari special, attending a Providence Bruins game, and the book The Martian. Brad talks a little about Far Cry 4, then Chuck boasts of completing Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, and finishing this season of Real World: Skeletons.
Brad and Chuck really dig into the Parks and Rec finale and discuss their thoughts on the finale and the show in general. Chuck gives his review (and plot synopsis) for the 50 Shades of Grey movie and does not seem enthused by the project - or its detractors! Chuck and Brad talk about an event they recently attended at Brad's church, then about the announcement of Rock Band 4. They also discuss seeing the movie Kingsman in a spoiler-free manner. They briefly talk about Brad's involvement in a "Roast" and tiptoe around feelings as they do. (If you listen, you can hear the I'm-tired-grumpiness creep in to my voice.)
