Snack Mixes

We can all agree that snack mixes are superior to singular snacks because they are more snacks at once. That's just math.

Spider-Man

Everybody's favorite half-boy/half-spider is back in theaters and we're talkin' about him! And not just the new movie, either (no spoilers until the end, with fair warning). We're also talking about the Spiderverse, and the 6000 other Spider-Man movies that came out in the last 20 years too.

Like the famous song says, "Take me out to the ballpark" and this week that's exactly what we're doing: we're taking you, the listener to the ballpark.

CBD, which is derived from dirty filthy drugs, is legal in the US and has somehow become the hottest new trend.

Sully (Episode 500)

It’s our 500th episode and what better way to celebrate than having two heroes (Tim and Tom) pay tribute to another hero, Captain Chesley Burnett “Sully” Sullenberger III, the US Airways pilot responsible for the Miracle on the Hudson 10 years ago this week after two goddamn birds tried to take everything away from him. While we have long admired Sully, neither of us had ever watched his movie despite it starring Tom Hanks, another longtime hero. Wow, four heroes in one show. We really pulled out all the stops for this one. We even had a few famous names call in to congratulate us, despite our insistence that we’re not heroes. Not compared to Sully at least. We’re probably heroes compared to a lot of other people though.

Dracula

As we conclude Halloween Month, we take a look at the original scary dude, Dracula. And even though you think doing research on Dracula would be fun and spooky, we learned the hard way that the original source material that introduces this guy who is undead, sucks blood and can turn into a bat and a wolf-thing, is actually kinda boring. Tom read Bram Stoker's original book and Tim watched the 1931 Bela Lugosi-starring movie (a totally fair division of work), so we have a lot to share.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
