Conspiracy theories have become a deep-seeded facet of not just American culture, but of cultures all over the world. This leads to some outrageous theories coming to light from the furthest corners of the human zeitgeist, and this week Kalvin and Nick are discussing some of the most ridiculous ones we could find! Is the government turning the frickin’ frogs gay? Are two famous 90s-00s heartthrobs actually the same person? We don’t know, but we fall deep into the rabbit hole as we aim to find answers!

Have you ever had a day where you felt like you just couldn’t catch a break and the world had it out for you? Or a day when you’re on fire (no not literally) and just can’t be stopped? Join Kalvin and Nick this week as we discuss some of the Unluckiest people in history and their no good, terrible, very bad days. On the flip side, we dive into a few of the luckiest, whether luck can be quantified, if the stuff is even real, and whether bad or good luck has played a part in our lives. Join us as we try to put our thumbs on just what goes into a bad day or series and how much ‘luck’ plays a part in it.
SPOILERS FOR THE RISE OF SKYWALKER!! You have been warned! Kalvin and Nick give individual reviews of the latest and maybe last entry in the Star Wars Skywalker Saga. Kalvin and Nick weren’t able to find time to record together during the week of Christmas, but we couldn’t leave you without content. First, Kalvin gives a full review of his experience with The Rise of Skywalker and how it fits within the sequel trilogy and the Star Wars universe as a whole. Then, Nick comes in with his review and thoughts on how it impacted his view on Star Wars. We agree on some things and disagree on others, but you’ll have to listen to the whole thing to find out why!
The Chosen One, Darth Vader, little orphan Annie, Anakin Skywalker. He goes by many names and this week Kalvin and Nick take a deep dive in to the problematic “Chosen One” of the Star Wars universe. We discuss his rise and fall and rise again, how the Jedi and Sith influenced his upbringing in the ways of the Force, and all of the important people that impacted his life. Join us as we try to figure out what make one of the most tragic and terrifying villains in all of cinema tick.
Welcome back to another installment in our Star Wars month with Star Wars Movie Superlatives! Best vehicles, movie, villains, and more dominate Kalvin and Nick’s discussion as we dive even further into this epic universe which finally receives our made-up awards! Who is the best hero in Star Wars? We have some feelings about that so listen in to find out!
The First Galactic Empire, also known as the Imperium (way cooler, we know), willed itself into reality at the behest of a mighty Sith Lord, Emperor Palpatine after nearly 25,000 years of the Republic’s existence. However, as with any intricate task like the scale of the epic overthrow of the Republic, it’s a little more nuanced than that, and this week, as part of Star Wars month, Kalvin and Nick dive deep into all things Galatic Empire! From how Palpatine rose to power to the inception, construction, and implementation of the mighty army that would lead it, its power structure as well as the multitude of things that had to go just right so the whole operation didn’t go up in smoke. A story of just how far one man has to go to change the galaxy to instill the ultimate Empire unfolds before us.
