20 The Mask and Montana

May 21, 2018Podcast

This week we talk about “The Mask” starring Jim Carrey. It’s a terrible movie, so we spend a lot more time talking with our guest Sarah Fontana, who was with Jen at the “therapeutic boarding school,” about that experience. We talk about everything (except The Mask).

CW: discussion of abusive “therapy” methods, traumatic situations. But don’t worry, we also laugh a lot.

19 X Files Pilot

May 14, 2018Podcast

The truth is out there! Not in this episode of our podcast, but out there somewhere else. Also, if you want to believe, this may not be the best thing to listen to as Micah finally and definitively disproves the existence of vampires.

18 Dangerous Minds

May 7, 2018Podcast

Get yourself some tossed salad and scrambled eggs and join us as we explore one of Seattle’s most enduring cultural legacies: Frasier!

16 Batman ForNever

April 23, 2018Podcast

Oof, this movie. We spent some of our precious hours here on earth watching this flaming dumpster fire, so come join us for a precious hour of yours as we talk about the important things. Boners, and well mostly just boners. But you also get to hear Micah sing and Jen makes an ass of herself SEVERAL times. Plus we come up with the perfect metaphor for this group of Batman movies.

15 My So Called Life Episode 19

April 16, 2018Podcast

(MAKE SURE YOU LISTEN TO THE VERY END OF THIS EPISODE FOR A SPECIAL BONUS.)

We’ve heard it said that when one door closes another one opens, or like, a window opens or some shit?

The “My So Called Life” door has closed for I Never Saw That, and now we will jump out the newly opened window into the arms of the rest of the mid-1990s.

Aaanyhoo, the first half of this episode is a discussion of the finale episode itself, and the second half is a discussion of the show as a whole, during which we give time to each main character. This one is very special to us and we hope you’ll give it a listen, even though it’s our longest episode.

Man we love this show. And we love you if you’re reading this. And we love you if you listen to our little podcast. Now would be a great time to send suggestions of stuff you want us to talk about—movies, TV shows, music, books, video games, and any other pop culture you can think of—that was released between 1994–1996.

And take our survey, please. It’s anonymous and we appreciate the feedback.

14 Empire Records

April 9, 2018Podcast

We don’t feel the need to explain our art to you, Warren.

But we will anyway. This week we are celebrating Rex Manning Day with our friends James and Erin from Unabashedly Obsessed! They love this movie and shared their love with us!

We have questions, and perhaps some of them will be answered. Like, why should we care about AJ and Corey? Where’s the dog from the cover? Why don’t you just shove ’em up your ass? And why does Jen always say “as a TEEN” like that?

Damn the man. Save the empire.

13 My So Called Life Episodes 17 and 18

April 2, 2018Podcast

Tino’s got this thing going, and so do we. This is our penultimate My So Called Life episode. We have a lot of feelings about it. Shit gets intense for Rayanne and Angela’s friendship when Rayanne bones Jordan, but hey, at least Danielle gets to narrate an episode! Whoever that is.

This one’s a little longer than usual because we do some “housekeeping,” Micah gives Jen a surprise gift during the show, and Jen answers a listener question about Montana, which leads to the telling of one of her wildest Montana stories.

*Content Warning* Topics mentioned in this episode that may be upsetting to some listeners: teenage runaways, drunk driving, rape, murder.

12 My So Called Life Episodes 15 and 16

March 26, 2018Podcast

Jen cries again in this one! And you should too, because Rickie is homeless in these episodes and if that doesn’t make you cry you probably don’t have a heart.

As we near the end of My So Called Life and process our feelings about that, we tackle some of the big questions, like:

Why is Katimsky so fucking difficult for Jen to pronounce correctly?

Is this show actually about schizophrenia, or is it just that Micah’s a cynical asshole?

What’s going to happen with Graham and Hallie, and also who cares?

Has there ever been a more flawless mashup of “Vogue” and the Doc McStuffins theme song?

New Year’s resolutions are absurd. That’s not a question, just a statement I wanted to throw in.

Did you hang this teddy bear from the urinal?

IS it a wonderful life?
