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!

Episode 151 – A Podcast ABout Selective Listening – Rap God – Eminem

Are your arms long enough to (metaphorically) slap box with Eminem? Are anyone’s? This week Nick and Kalvin return to the Selective Listening series to break down one of the most dense rap songs ever and quickly realize that our arm’s are not long enough. It takes all of our combined power to cover every single word in this amazingly constructed track while Eminem is throwing lyrics at us at supersonic speed (JJ Fad). Take a journey with us through every single word in this Guinness World Record holding song as we break it down line by line to get to them bottom of what it really mean to be THE Rap God!

Episode 150 – A Podcast About Robin (DC Comics)

Holy bombastic, birds, Batman! The title gets a lot of hate, but you’ve got to put some respect on the name of Robin, the Boy Wonder! When the moniker is synonymous with the one and only Caped Crusader, and as the other half of the dynamic duo, being badass is a prerequisite! We’re here to break it down for the masses, from the creation of the character to the initial and beyond boy wonders who occupied the crimson carapaces and masks. The rises and falls, deaths and rebirths, horrible costumes, and some slightly better ones. Who best represented the identity of Robin? Hell, did Batman even need a Robin? What has he even done anyway, you may be asking, and that is why we’re here to fill you in!

The man, the Pop Culture icon, the legend; Kevin Smith is our subject of the day! He cut his teeth on a $27,000 indie movie and has progressed into a titan of Pop Culture.

With surprising star power and solid writing, Kevin Smith has built a universe of his own with some amazing characters like Jay and Silent Bob.
