86 Gargoyles – S1 Eps 11-13 with Shift

June 26, 2020Podcast

We finally did it! We finished our last chapter of our Gargoyles adventure. Boy am I gonna miss that loin cloth.

More importantly though, this week we are joined by a very special guest and friend, Shift, who shares some of his brilliance with us. This was recorded a couple weeks ago, just after the murder of George Floyd, and Shift is a Black man who shared his perspective not only on See You in the Funny Papers and what’s under Goliath’s loin cloth, but racial violence, protesting, and anti-racism work. Listen to him.

*Disclaimer: None of us are medical experts so do not take our thoughts on vinegar as fact.

85 Gargoyles – S1 Eps 9-10

May 11, 2020Podcast

‘Goyles! We’re talking about ‘Goyles again as all the superfans call Gargoyles. Just two episode recaps this week because it’s a Sunday on See You in the Funny Papers and Micah got excited. Also Jen brings it hard with a new educational segment about US History (see U.S. Constitution Article XIII(c)i). She also brings it hard with talk of gargoyle sex parts, so this one isn’t for the kiddies.


Note: Sorry about the background noise on this one. We had to deal with a rogue fan during our recording session. I wish I meant a crazed listener, but I don’t. It got very hot and toasty this week here at INST HQ and there was an air circulating type of fan that kept turning off and on and we couldn’t control it.

84 Gargoyles – S1 Eps 6-8

May 4, 2020Podcast

We’re back with more Gargoyles this week, in an episode that really shows our range. We cover everything from Gargoyle boners to the relationship between oppression and power, jen talks about water intake in Montana, and we are perpetual ding dongs throughout.

83 Gargoyles – The Remaining Awakenings

April 27, 2020Podcast

We continue awakening with the Gargoyles this week as we cover the episodes entitled Awakening, Part 3, Awakening, Part 4, and, you guessed it, Awakening, Part 5!

Micah describes a new and exciting comic as part of See You in the Funny Papers and we give explicit details on how to reach us by spelling out Micah’s contact info. I’d write it out here too, but that seems like overkill. Jen also talks about the food situation in Montana.

Finally, we had to bleep out a few words that discuss a product that may be coming to market soon. We hope it’s not too confusing. Please don’t ask us what the name is. We shan’t tell.

82 Gargoyles S1 Eps 1-2

April 20, 2020Podcast

Gargoyles! We watched some of it, but we didn’t really talk about it much. So if you got excited, we’re sorry. Gargoyles was a cartoon show on in 1994, but you wouldn’t know that from listening to this episode that is purportedly about said cartoon show.

Micah does his really dumb and long segment and Jen presents another letter from her school and then we run out of time to talk about the actual topic for the week. BUT! We plan to watch a lot of Gargoyles in the coming weeks and we promise we’ll talk about those sweet stone/statue/beasts a lot very soon.

81 Outbreak

April 13, 2020Podcast

Heeeeeeyyyyy. So, yeah, we decided to watch 1995’s Outbreak. Just now. Yes, that Outbreak. Because what better time to watch a movie about a terrifying pandemic than during an actual pandemic? We don’t dwell on gross details, but we get it if you’re not up for this topic right now.

Don’t worry though, we still do a See You in the Funny Papers, and we’re still complete dipshits throughout!

80 We Are Back

April 6, 2020Podcast

We’re back again! This time for keeps. For real? For a longer time–whatever, our hiatus is over. We’re back to making regular episodes. This is not a regular episode though. Making episodes regularly is what I meant.

Anyway, Jen reads a letter sent from Mission Mountain many years ago and Micah catches Jen up on the Great Blondie/Hi & Lois Controversy of 1994 during everyone’s favorite segment! Also, Jen solves time travel paradoxes.

79 Groundhog Day

February 2, 2020Podcast

It’s Groundhog Day! So obviously we watched Harold Ramis’ 1993 masterpiece “Groundhog Day” starring Bill Murray, Andie McDowell, and Chris Elliott FOUR TIMES! We watched it over and over and over just like Bill Murray lives the same day over and over and over. Get it? Get it‽

Sorry, we’re a little delirious. We recorded a bit between each viewing and do we uncover more nuance each time? Not really, but at least we repeat ourselves a lot. But it’s on purpose and totally meta. GET IT‽ 

Near the end things really get out of control and our children hijack our mics so we hope you enjoy that. And we give a shout out to a good podcast called “Any Album You Like” that also included repeated viewings of something. You should just listen to that podcast.

Sorry the edit is a little rough, but we had to get it out today because what if there is no tomorrow? There wasn’t one today!

78 Hottest Songs of ’94

December 16, 2019Podcast


It’s so. And murderer. It’s murderer.

This is the “Misheard Lyrics” episode of I Never Saw That. So feel free to to laugh at us. Also laugh with us though, because we laugh with each other a lot and we have a lot of fun talking about the top songs on Billboard’s Hot 100 at the end of 1994. We talk about four songs in this episode and didn’t hear the correct lyrics to at least two of them. So 50/50. We’ll take those odds!

Also, I talk SO all the time doesn’t make any goddamn sense so, whatever, slow is better. None of the other song we screwed up makes any sort of sense so “werdemup” works just as well if not better. WE FIXED YOUR SONGS LISA LOEB AND INI KAMOZE! YOU’RE WELCOME!!! Boyz, we can’t fix your shit. Sorry.

Thanks for listening!

77 Jen Solo: INST Travel Edition

November 21, 2019Podcast

This episode is technically an episode. It is not good but at least it’s short! It’s just Jen, talking about some stuff. Our travels, a little bit of Montana, and some Randy Quaid (Uncle Eddie) from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.

One thing Jen realized after listening to this is that if she would have lowered her voice just a little bit this could have been an ASMR episode! Feel free to listen to this one at bedtime!
