Episode 307: Kong: Skull Island, Paige's Scandal, and New Dave Chapelle Specials

After our standard social media and upcoming show plugs (April 9 at the Comedy Connection), we discuss the below Web Couliers and try and figure out how to describe the action in Atomic Blonde as it relates to other movies. We do not succeed. After that, we talk about Henry Cavill being cast in Mission Impossible 6 via Instagram, an upcoming Amy Poehler/Nick Offerman project, Venom possibly getting an R rating, and a new Sarah Silverman show. Awesome! We also revel in the news of a new Goldfinger album, a Record Store Day exclusive from Against Me!, and a new Days N Daze album.
We dive into the scandal surrounding WWE Superstar Paige and her response. Chuck talks about his trip to see Lion King at the Providence Performing Arts Center, then a trip to see Bryan Callen and Stevie Blue Eyes do stand-up in Boston. We talk about actually eating Thai food at a restaurant in Barrington and discuss our appearance on 'Defend This,' our pal Keith Goward's podcast. We talk about seeing Anthony Jeselnik live (it was great), then talk about going to see Kong: Skull Island (uh...). Chuck tells me about the new Dave Chapelle specials that I haven't watched yet. We discuss Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them (which we have finally seen). Chuck talks a little bit about some video games, including "Dead Storm Pirates," a light-gun game for the PS3. Finally Chuck tells me about his recent trip to see Dan Soder do stand-up. Was he as good as when we saw him at Nick's Comedy Stop a few years back? Listen and find out!

Episode 306: The Story of Ten Cents Short

Let's talk to a young band, shall we? (SPOILER: WE SHALL!!!!!) We are joined this week by the guyz of Ten Cents Short, a Providence-based pop-punk band that doubles as four good human beings. Chuck and I talk with them about their journey toward bandship and some of the things they learned along the way. It's a super-fun conversation with Aaron, Austin, Dave, and John!

Episode 305: Wrestlemania Discussion and Predictions

I know, I know, this could be considered "304 Part Two," but due to a variety of conflating circumstances, it's now considered episode 305. DEAL WITH IT. We are once again joined by the guyzos from Sweet Babylon - Izzy, Lenny, and Kyle! This episode is all about the Grandaddy of them all - WRESTLEMANIA! There are five very different levels of excitement in the room for the annual WWE event and we explore the reasons for it as well as make predictions for matches and winners! Super fun time with the SB Boys!

Episode 304: The WBRU Rock Hunt, Spoiler-Free Logan Review, and We Meet The Autoblow

This week finds the dudes from Sweet Babylon hanging out with us - Izzy, Lenny, and Kyle! The plan was to talk about Logan and Wrestlemania, but we had so much fun we split this episode into two. Here in Part One we talk about the voting for the WBRU Rock Hunt, then offer our spoiler-free thoughts on "Logan." Finally, Chuck unboxes a mysterious package - did Chuck seriously score a free $200 sex toy known as the 'Autoblow?"

Episode 303: Our Ikea Nightmare, We the Kings, and Westworld

We are joined this week by the lovely and talented Gina Mastrostefano. Once we establish that, we start, as we should, with a story about Chuck in a Taco Bell bathroom. We examine the question "Should you knock before you enter a public restroom?" in exhausting detail. Speaking of exhausting, Chuck and I recently went to Ikea and the experience was not great. We share some other customer service stories, then go into Chuck's issues with Dish Network. Chuck and Gina tell me about the We the Kings concert from this past weekend, then briefly talk about Moana. Once that is done, we talk at length about the HBO show "Westworld" and go way way way into spoilers, so be warned!
