It’s October, so that means it’s Horror Month! In this episode we talk about all the new horror movies Gedge watched so far this month, and then veer off into our own personal spooky stories. We also talk a little about that new Guardians of the Galaxy 2 preview and do our best Jesse Ventura impressions.
Episode 2.9: End of Summer Round Up
Welcome back to the podcast! On this episode we recap the past month and catch everyone up on what we’ve been up to. Gedge had some new experiences, John crossed off some bucket list items, and Dana put up with the two of them.
Be sure to stay till the very end. We got a little jumpy and tried to end the show before we got to John’s favorite part of London.
Episode 2.8: Ghostheads, Trekkies, and Stranger Thingies
Welcome back! In this episode we cover a lot of ground including the new Netflix show Stranger Things (which may or may not have a cameo by a certain co-host), the new Ghostbusters movie, and the new Star Trek movie. We hit a lot of other stuff in the middle, and yell at each other a more than usual for some reason.
Also: Dungeons and Dragons! We rank the Conans! Comic Con recap!
Episode 2.2: The Art of Inspiration
Welcome back, loyal listeners. In this episode we tackle using existing characters and tropes to build new worlds and stories. This is mostly an excuse to talk about how much we like The Venture Brothers, but we manage to dig into some meaty topics.
Also, we dig into the new Ghostbusters trailer, Gedge gets to gush about The Dresden Files, and Dana talks about Tarantino.
Episode 15: Girl Fights!
We’re back from Thanksgiving break with a brand new podcast! We recap our Turkey Day highlights, catch up on Jessica Jones, and gush about the newest chapter of the Rocky saga, Creed. Plus, we get old and pretentious on some music, and talk about Gedge’s newly formed professional wrestling addiction.
Episode 10: Anniversary Horror Spectacular
Dana is back for our landmark 10th episode to discuss the Horror Masters. Can she hack it in this oppressive man’s world? Does she have the skills to communicate her ideas to the oppressive megalomaniac John?
Plus, Gedge talks about the horror movies he’s been watching, and we discuss their connections to masters of horror, from H.P. Lovecraft to Dario Argento.
Episode 9: Horror Fundamentals
It’s time to kickoff Horror Month with a whole podcast devoted to the big question: What is horror? In this super sized episode we go all the way back from Dante up to the present and look at different types of horror, why we like horror, what it all means, and why some people just plain get it wrong. There’s a lot to chew on here, so sit back, relax, and let the terror take you over.
Episode 7: The Phantom Moffat
It’s wife week on the podcast as Dana and Annie join us for a friendly discussion about Doctor Who, starting with the Doctor’s wife, River Song, and ending in a critique of the current state of Who. Is Moffat more J.J. Abrams or George Lucas? Is either one of those good? In addition, Gedge and Annie reveal the worst companion.
Also: Gedge watched the Guest, so we talk about Dan Stevens’ good looks. Plus: Kurt Russell! Weird ’80s horror movies!
Episode 5: Reference Materials
Even more reference materials to keep you in the loop!
Episode 3: Hipster Superheroes
We’re back for our third episode. I’m a little bit more awake in this one, and Gedge is as angry and clueless as always. In this one we catch up on last week’s news and answer the big question: can Kurt Russell still pull off Snake Plissken?
Also, we hate hipster millennial bullshit, but we love the new Batgirl comic. Listen to why we think it’s cool even though we’re not 16 year old girls. We also get around to answering a listener question.
