Episode 207: Reboot Culture, Guitar Hero Live, and Guilty Pleasures


Episode 207 features New Podcast Pal Nick Mendillo joining Chuck and Brad. The three talk about Nick's background in music and comedy before getting into the plugs for upcoming shows. They talk about the "feminism" Web Coulier below, which segues into a discussion about appropriate language. Speaking of appropriate, have you heard about the "Horny Mom" story from Georgia? Now you have!
Chuck's movie driplets this week include discussion about the Scream TV show, and the casting of Olivia Munn as Psylocke in "X-Men: Apocalypse." We also learn that Mick Foley is going to have a stand-up special produced for the WWE Network, and test the "Find My Phone" function in Google.
Nick brings a little science to the podcast as the guys talk about artificial intelligence. The topic is quickly dismissed, although Brad's robotic personality forces him to suck up to our future overlords a little. Chuck gives a quick review of the movie "Top Five," then Chuck and Brad talk about their trip to the Southcoast Toy & Comic-Con, then Marc Maron's recent appearance in Boston. Chuck talks about Senior Discount playing with Beebs and Her Moneymakers and the fun that was had during that show.
The three guys talk about the just-announced "Guitar Hero Live" game and music games in general. They forecast the game's (and peripheral's) popularity. Chuck talks about a dilemma he's been having with technology and seeks advice. The final topic the idea of "Guilty Pleasures." What do these three fellows like that society wants them to be ashamed of?
