Episode 162 – A Podcast About Airing Of Grievances Part 3

Yesssss, finally, we have come back around to the most cathartic of episodes! Our annual airing of grievances (part 3) has arrived and it’s our best one yet. Now that our lives aren’t completely dominated by a pandemic, we are reminded of all the other little stuff that used to (and still does) piss us off.  Some stuff has a way of really grinding our gears, and it’s something we are sure we share with you in some way. Blippi, skimping popcorn chicken, the gym, getting buried in candy (it’s worse than you would think), the Mandela Effect and Robert Kraft all show their pissy little faces with more on the sidelines as well.

Episode 161 – A Podcast About the Tourney at Harrenhal (ASOIAF)

Now that it has been awhile since the disastrous 8th season of Game of Thrones, we think it’s time to visit the subject again. Arguably, the event that kick started the events that we loved as fans for at least 5 seasons, The Tourney at Harrenhal! Shrouded in mystery during a time period of much calamity, the Tourney was one of the biggest butterfly effect events that occurred throughout fake history. Shadow alliances, attempts at a coup, marriage and love were all present and dialed up to 11. It’s most certainly poignant that it occurred at one of the most expensive castles ever built while hosting the best knights that have ever lived as the spark of Robert’s Rebellion is ready to explode and tear apart the realm. Also, who the F&%k is the Knight of the Laughing Tree?

Episode 160 – A Podcast About NBA Centers

The NBA Center position, once as pivotal to the game as quarterbacks in the NFL, has changed a lot over the years. The 5 spot has arguably changed more than any other position in the sport, which bodes well for us as we detail our five (but really six) fundamental somethings about our favorite Centers in NBA history. Not the best mind you, but our favorite. Trust us, our taste is impeccable! We touch on all aspects of the position as we make our choices, from unbelievable stats to game changing strategies.

Episode 159 – A Podcast About Harry Potter Movie Superlatives

The year is 2011. You stand around the water cooler talking about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Pt. 2 and naturally, the conversation stretches back to the Harry Potter catalogue. You argue with your colleague, what’s the best use of magic? What’s the best evil plan in the series? Best use of magic or Best (or worst) Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher? Now bring yourself back to the present because we’re here to hit you right in the nostalgia part of your brain as we hand out our patented made-up awards to the Harry Potter franchise! We even include The Fantastic Beasts franchise in our pool of choices as we award the best in a series full of highs as well as the worst, which, come on, there is some of that in here too. Would you reboot the franchise and how would you go about it?

Episode 158 – A Podcast About Tommy Oliver (Power Rangers)

My boy Tommy O, the one and only Green (White, Red x 2, and Black) Ranger out there. By one and only, we mean a cut above the rest, a leader, an enemy, and a friend by the name of Tommy Oliver! Often people’s favorite of all Power Rangers, he certainly has quite the background when it comes to development, with Jason David Frank bringing the character to screens near you. With an up and down history amongst fellow rangers and a storyline that spans all forms of media, we give Tommy our full attention as we try to decide which version is best and what makes Tommy such a great ranger. Age certainly hasn’t done JDF justice, but Tommy is timeless.

Episode 157 – A Podcast About Selective Listening – Grillz – Nelly, Paul Wall, Ali & Gipp

“Got the whole top diamond, and the bottom rose gold!” Or is the bottom row gold? It’s hard to tell sometimes what is meant by any particular lyric in any particular song, so Nick and Kalvin are here yet again to break down a song line by line in the latest entry to the Selective Listening song. We try to figure out which one of these rappers is the most talented, how many different ways they can say “diamonds are shiny,” and of course what was going on in each of their careers in late 2005 to bring us the anthem of a lifetime. Grillz was an instant classic and it was important for us to immortalize it again over 15 years later, so rob your local jewelry store and tell em to make you a grill (preferably while listening to this episode)!

Episode 156 – A Podcast About the Salem Witch Trials

Incantations. Spells. Grimoires. The Devil’s words. BS tests and the hangman’s noose. All things that today don’t mean much, but in 1692 they meant everything, especially during the epic (kind of) mythological time of the Salem Witch Trials! Blown out of proportion is an understatement, and Kalvin and Nick dive deep to abolish the blasphemers and confirm the truths. We bring our spectral evidence to the table and dissect this grim episode of American lore and the trials and tribulations many poor women and men of a Puritan community faced on the frontiers of Massachusetts. Yet another time where it’s easy to point fingers until the higher ups find themselves pointed out, and just as quickly as it flamed up, it fizzled out.

Episode 154 – A Podcast About Boxing Movie Superlatives

A film with sports as the catalyst of the story can be a good one. But it’s mostly a genre filled with cliche moments and feel good endings. One sport, however, holds up better than all others when it comes to film, and that’s boxing! So naturally it’s time for us to punch out a Boxing Movie Superlative episode! For a small list of decent boxing movies, most tend to hold up. Movies such as Rocky, of course, dominate the field when it comes to some of the best moments, opponents, and shouts of Adrian! While others tell a different story from a different point of view, one that tends to help the viewer take a walk in the protagonist’s shoes. Which fighters have the toughest of opponents? Or the dopest of cornermen? And overall, who is the best fighter, as in the character and the actor who plays them? We follow each award with our patented sucklatives, and we’re sure you’ll see what we see, even if Mickey has to cut ya!

In the fourth entry in our NBA positional series, Nick and Kalvin get into the thicc bois of the NBA, the Power Forwards! We discuss the past and present of the position and how it’s changed over the years. Grabbing rebounds, blocking shots, throwing down devastating dunks in games or dunk contests, and some of the most proficient trash talking you’ve ever heard, our favorite Power Forwards could do it all (except make a 3 pointer). After you listen to find out who our favorite PFs are, go back through our catalogue as for PGs, SGs, and SFs, and stay tuned for an upcoming episode on our favorite Centers.
