Episode 25 - The Generations Game

Hello Randomers and Randomites. How times have changed wouldn't you say? Today on the Carnival, we discuss how much things have actually changed as the generations have progressed. Some good, some bad, some indifferent. Has technology aided or hindered us? And when will the robots actually conquer Earth? Keep an eye out and remember, get off my lawn! What'd we miss? Tweet, Instagram, Facebook or e-mail us and let us know! Once again, still sponsored by Opsitnick & Associates. Lawyers for...


Episode 24 - We Get Sporty

Hello again, Randomers and Randomites! We're putting a bow on all this holiday nonsense for the season... by talking about professional sports. It made sense to us. We just scratch the surface of sports, and discover a new idea for a future podcast. We know sports aren't everyone's cup of tea, but stay tuned after when we open gifts from our lovely sponsor, Opsitnick & Associates. We survived, so hopefully that means they're still happy with us. We hope you are too! How about that local...


Episode 23 - American Moondogs Live at The Carnival

Greetings once again, Randomers and Randomites. From the North by Northwest Music Festival here in snowy Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, we run across our old friends The American Moondogs. We sit down for an interview, but then the itch took them and they played us a few tunes right from our igludio (igloo studio). First is "Screendoor", followed by a cover of "Sixteen Days" by Ryan Adams. Then we got cold so we're playing you a third original track that's off their upcoming album,...


Episode 22 - The Best Of...

Merry New Year, Randomers and Randomites! We're closing out 2018 in odd fashion with talking about our "Best Of" in various categories. It may not be just 2018 since there may not have been some stuff that was truly the best, but we talk about things that we like the best. It's been a good start to this journey and thank you for sticking with us. Speaking of sticking with us, stay tuned at the end of the podcast for a song from an upcoming podcast guest, international recording artist...


Episode 21 - Santa's Sack

Merry Christmas Randomers and Randomites! We're here to appeal to Lord Santa to bring us some Christmas joy by digging deep into his sack... of questions, and answering them for his elves. It's a literal grab bag of different things that we make a vain attempt to answer so we can get presents. Stay tuned after the podcast for a jaunty little Christmas tune off the Los Straitjackets album 'Tis the Season for Los Straitjackets! entitled "Christmas in Las Vegas." May the joy of the season fill...


Episode 20 - Doctor Who and Some Time Travel

Hello Randomers and Randomites! Exterminate? Back from New Years Eve 2018 (stay tuned for what happened), and thanks to a British person in a phone booth, we have returned to the present and are joined once again by Suzi Willpower of Anonymous Willpower and a new friend to the Carnival and up-and-coming visual designer Marisa and we're here to pay homage to the being that returned us from the future, as well as the television phenomenon, Doctor Who. We go through the Doctors and give our...

Together, the five of us talk 80's/Classic metal, whatever you'd like to call it, and we...


Live Special #2 - First Friday at The Hungerford

Hello Randomers and Randomites. We may not know art, but we know what we like, so we popped in at First Friday at the Hungerford located at 1115 E. Main Street in downtown Rochester.

Episode 16 - British TV & Veterans Day

Hello Randomers and Randomites. This one is coming out a day early for random reasons, but also because it's Veterans Day. We start talking British TV shows, but then we're joined by our sponsor who gives us a new plug and talks about the accuracy of "Anatomy of a Murder." Then finally, in honor of Veterans Day, we're joined by a real-life World War II veteran. 94 years young, sharp as a tack and funny as hell. It's a special show with some special people, so please listen and thank a...


Episode 15 - Haunted Podcast with Teej Jenkins

Halloween may be over, but we're not completely done with the scary stuff. Joining us today is our friend Teej Jenkins, the creator of the video blogs "My Haunted Road Trip" and "World Hop With Teej." We met her at the Hamlin Scream Fest and wanted to talk more about her adventures, her process and any scary things she's run across. It was a great interview and who knows, you might be seeing us on location at a haunted place with her in the near future. By the way, she recorded this, so if...

It ends soon so get your donations in and check out his other movies, including Greetings From...
