This week Kalvin and Nick are back to hand out some more made up awards while cruising Route 66 to something that stands as an icon of Americana, a right of passage, and often part of a bucket list: Road Trips. We all have our own experiences, but often the most epic, and inspirational, are those we see on the movie screen. We award some of the best of the bunch and share our own Road Trip stories, both good and bad and hope we inspire a road trip of your own. Gas up, get yourself a Monster, find the right tunes (or podcasts) and strap in while we hit the open road.
We’ve got a very special March Madness edition of A Podcast About Something this week. Kalvin is joined by Paul Elliott, the brains behind Seinfeld Madness (@seinfeldmadness on Twitter), as we walk through our One Shining Seinfeld Moment bracket. We took the most character defining moments from Jerry, Elaine, Kramer, and George and threw them into a bracket free-for-all hosted on bracketsninja.com. Each character has one branch of the bracket, and the Final Four will see each of their best moments going head-to-head to determine the One Shining Seinfeld Moment! Kalvin and Paul discuss our favorites moments, best matchups, potential upsets, and maybe even a sleeper or two in this episode to give some context to the moments that made the bracket. Follow the link below to vote for your favorite moments in Round 1 now! The bracket runs through April 8th with a new round starting every 3 days. Keep an eye on our twitter (@APASomething) for updates on the progress of the bracket.
B-Movies, Biceps and Bullets dominate our discussion this week as we look at some of the best to ever do it, true pioneers of a genre who flexed on the competition and won. Schwarzenegger, Stallone and Willis dominated the 80’s and 90’s and the characters brought to life by the Trinity of old all shared something in common. From head crushing biceps, witty iconic lines, and explosive action, usually tied together by the thinnest of plots, we fondly remember the meatheads of old who are still entertaining us to this day.
What’s the answer to life, the universe, and everything? We have an idea, so listen to us discuss it this week along with other topics as we hand out Life Advice! Good, bad, or just meh we look at a broad series of questions pulled from our Twitter feed over @APASomething as well as from Reddit and give our two cents. Our advice may not be the greatest, but who knows, you may be able to turn that 2 cents into 42. Now wouldn’t that be something?
This week Nick and Kalvin are joined by Karla from the Go Postal podcast to discuss obscure sports. We each pick a weird and wild sport and dive deep into it’s history and present. Karla brings in some of her signature style with BBBs from Sydney, Australia and the Olympics held there. To hear more from Karla, check out Go Postal and follow her on Twitter @GoPostalPodcast
Ssssssomebody stop me! This week Kalvin and Nick hand out some more made up awards to one of the best to ever do it, Jim Carrey. From his beginnings and meteoric rise to comedy fame to his slow decline, we look at a body of work that is still Smokin’, even when it leaves our pets heads falling off! Join us as we award some of ours and your favorites from the King of Characters ranging from the out there Lloyd to the downright weird Fire Marshall Bill. Say hello to Mr. Shickadance…err Satan, when you stop into Twitter and join the discussion @APASomething and for god sakes, LACES OUT!
It’s the N-O T-O R I-O-U-S! This week Kalvin and Nick take a hard look at a rivalry heard around the world, one that helped shape the 90’s for better or for worse (we’re not here to judge…. or are we?). East vs West, Bad Boy vs Death Row, Biggie vs Pac. From upbringing to death, flow to biopic we make an admittedly biased examination of two titans of the rap game and have a good time doing it. Whether you fall into one camp or another, everyone will find something to enjoy in this boisterous episode diving into the legacies of arguably two of the greatest to ever do it.
