Episode 25: Friends, Romans, Countrymen… WHERE’S THE JOKER?

, with special guest:

Xanadu Sq LogoThis week, we have DC Comics artist Christopher “Danger” Jones, Esq. back one more time, and we FINALLY ask him about the media thing he cares about most: the Batman. This bat-episode is filled with bat-ness!

If you need a bat-drink while you enjoy our bat-chat, we suggest an Angry Orchard Apple Ginger Hard Cider. We’re not sure if that’s something that Bruce Wayne would keep in his bat-fridge, but it does happen to be what we were bat-drinking back in May when we recorded this episode.

Full bat-notes behind the bat-cut!

Episode 24: Musical PTSD

, with special guest:

Windy's Skeptical FaceThis week, we talk to Fes Works from the Webcast Beacon Network! Our topic du jour is musicals… or, rather, how Windy loves musicals and how Fes… has issues with musicals.

Our choice of alcohol this week was Ravenswood Wines Chardonnay Vinter’s Blend 2012. And Fox Barrel Pacific Pear Cider. And New Glarus Moon Man beer. And rum.

Really, we were all just plain sauced. Y’all are enablers.

Anyway, show notes behind the cut!

Episode 23: Screaming Keeps the Face Supple

, with special guest:

Meghan Murphy is twisted and cute, just like her art. We like her.

This week, we talk to Meghan Murphy of Kawaii Not and Murphypop fame! She’s a big horror movie fan, so the three of us finally get down to professing our love of monsters, terror, and gore.

We unfortunately had some technical difficulties in recording this episode (translation: in a moment of desperation, we recorded it with a Rock Band microphone). We managed to clean up the audio pretty well, but you’ll hear some artifacts here and there. Sorry about that! We hope it’s not too bothersome.

Our unusual circumstances also meant that we did not have a formal booze pairing for this week. We did record during a party at a friend’s house, though, so please grab a random beer or cider — like we did — and enjoy!

Episode 22: Dysfunctional Is Still Functional

Xanadu Sq LogoThis week, Windy and Melissa make use of listener Ryan Alexander’s suggestion and talk about BOOZE MOVIES! (“Because meta,” writes Ryan.)

We, of course, did not do this episode sober. We found a bottle of wine with a sheep on it (Le Grand Noir Malbec) and enjoyed it very, very thoroughly.

This week, we are joined by erudite comedian Kelvin Hatle as we unravel our feelings about “probematic media”: movies and shows that are great except for that ooooooone super offensive part. We go a little long on this one and hit upon some not-very-nice subjects, so buckle up with a bottle of Penascal Temperanillo or The Gaucho Club Oak Cask Malbec… because we certainly did!

If we make your blood pressure rise too much with this week’s episode, we apologize and offer How Animals Eat Their Food as a palliative measure.
