Episode 265: The Story of Short-Handed Goal and Bears Bears Bears


We are joined this week by not one but TWO musicians from not one but TWO different bands! Ben Allard and Ryan O'Keefe of Short-Handed Goal and Bears Bears Bears stop by to chat! We talk about some movie news including John Carpenter's return to the Halloween series before diving into the interview proper. Which ska-punker started with the accordion? Which one got in the band because he owned a minivan? These answers and more on a shocking episode of the podcast!

Episode 264: A Discussion About Captain America: Civil War


We finally get to talk about Captain America: Civil War! And who better to talk about it with than our pal Justin Marra. After some project plugs, we talk about the emails we received this week (including a web coulier below). From there it's a natural progression to some movie driplets, including a possible Ocean's 11 remake and rumors about the Fantastic Four sequel. Chuck talks about a beloved local retailer closing, we talk about the newest Fat Wreck Chords comp, then we are legally bound to discuss the first successful penis transplant.
After that, it's a quick spoiler-free review of the movie, then we commence with an in-depth discussion on the film's strengths and perceived weaknesses. We even find time to define "insurgent." Also, there was no legal binding about the penis thing. Just so you know.

Episode 263: The Story of Brian Beaudoin


Another one of our world-famous interview episodes! This week features stand-up comic Brian Beaudoin joining us in the studio. After some quick show plugs, Chuck shares a movie driplet, Brad shares the misadventures of his car, then the interview begins. We talk with Brian about his start in comedy, the transition to booking, and our plans/goals for the future. Brian is open and funny and I think the fact that we had a genuinely good time is evident throughout the episode.

Episode 262: Memory Lane with Lou, Dana Carvey, and Being Evel


We are joined this week by esteemed chef and disesteemed human Lou Perella. After some quick Chuck and Brad updates, Lou presents a treasure trove of things he's found while cleaning out his old basement - tons of old WWF Magazines! Chuck then gives us all some movie driplets about the Wet Hot American Summer sequel, The Punisher series, Chuck Palahniuk's Snuff as a TV series, and a Puppet Master reboot. We also talk about Space Jam 2 starring Lebron James, as well as Jon Favreau directing another Marvel movie, and Seth McFarlane's next TV project.
Chuck then brings up the Civil War II storyline starting in Marvel comics and talks about some other Civil War stuff. We talk about the proper pronoun for a baby, a recent NoFX show, our trip to see Dana Carvey, and the recent WWE Payback show. Chuck then tells me and Lou all about the documentary Being Evel and how interesting the life of Evel Knievel was. Then the provider of this week's "Jurassic Snark" is none other than ol' Lou!
