In a very special short (Devori calls it a MiMi-sode), we find out Devori's been smoking weed, and that they both watched the KTMA episode Cosmic Princess!

SoL-Mates #30: Master Ninja 2 and Recognizing Toxic Relationships

Y'all - we have ninja fatigue this week. Maybe humans weren't meant to watch so much sub-par ninja fare in such a short time. We made it through somehow, but not entirely unscathed. Host segments: "Previously on Sol-Mates"; all chaff, no wheat; MiMi confesses; drenching The Master in faint praise; TV theme crimes; shitty Chekov's gun; PickleFace; Jeff's brazen canning lies; how we feel about improv; Max Keller is Alf; canning Joe Don Baker; no one listens to this podcast; smelling toast;...


SoL-Mates #29 Master Ninja I and Dos and Don'ts for Dating Dudes in Vans

We have only one thing to say to this week - and that's "ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-bwaaaaaaah." If you can't deduce this episode is about Master Ninja I from that, then you're probably listening to the wrong podcast. Or, it's just a terrible representation of Gypsy-singing. Probably the latter. But to be honest, you probably saw it in the episode title. Host segments: patchouli and self-loathing; say it, Joe; Jeff old-mansplains the Ninja Craze of the late 1900s; inside the mind of a van owner;...

Please like, share, rate,...


SoL-Mates #27 Operation Double 007 and Confronting Workplace Harrassment

What happens when a bunch of people who are siblings of other people sit down to watch a movie about the sibling of another person? Not much, actually. But we all agree that the fashions are swingin'! It's time for Neil Connery's tour-de-farce (pun intended) in Agent Double 007. Host segments: Devori explains academia; Neil Connery's sibling rivalry; brother from another cocktail; don't say Jeff doesn't have goals; Neil's dream; bland sixties rock; a fistful of Morricones; Jeff should STAY...


SoL-Mates #26: East Meets Watts and Interracial Couples

We venture into the Cinematic Titanic universe with our newest episode! What happens when you combine blaxsploitation films with the martial arts craze of the 70s? Well – in better hands this could have been a damn fine movie. Hear the Sol-Mates dodge casual racism with aplomb! Hear them grow palpably uncomfortable at times! Hear them shill Bill’s Beans because #buythosebeans! CW: some reference to the use of racial slurs on 70s/80s television/ableism Host segments: Bad...


SoL-Mates #25: The Incredible Melting Man and the Dangers of Geriatric Intercourse

Happy Valentine's Day, fellow SoL-Mates! Be...


Sol-Mates #24: Time of the Apes and Inter-Species Erotica

Sandy Frank! Sandy Frank! Boy this movie's weird! What even WAS the Time of the Apes? Was it like that Bill Medley song? There's unspeakable horrors under those ape masks, we tells ya.

This episode brought to you by the fine...


SoL-Mates #22: Bottle Episode

What happens when four friends-turned-podcast-hosts get stuck in a wine cellar together? While they're all definitely in the same place? And they have no choice but to drink wine and reminisce about the past season? And what happens when that original recording gets lost due to mysterious circumstances and they have to do it all again? That's right! It's a season finale "bottle episode," free of clips -- because we're not THAT unoriginal. Season 2 of Sol-Mates will start in two weeks with...


SoL-Mates #21: The Christmas That Almost Wasn't and The Least-Erotic Fanfiction

It's a very special Sol-Mates Holiday Episode! With no swears! No ribaldry...sort of. It's the perfect way to kill time with your family when you're trying not to kill your family!

SoL-Mates #20: The Crawling Hand and Peculiar College Mating Habits

Four friends. A divisive MST3K episode. Will their relationships remain intact? Will MiMi ever speak to any of them again? Probably. We just wanted to interject some actual drama into The Crawling Hand. Host Segments: Joe bones the intro; Devori ponders things; Kimbro Clothing Wish-List; In case you cared -- a history of space-suit films; beating a dead riff; weird ways to hate teens; what happens when a body rejects "Surfin' Bird"; the "Uncle Jimmy's" jokes write themselves; too soon?;...


SoL-Mates #19: The Giant Spider Invasion and Fun With Misogyny

It's our take on a Turkey Day favorite! There was merriment, and wine, so things got a little ribald. OK -- they got A LOT ribald. But that's probably to be expected when discussing a creature flick in which a whole town is getting down with itself. HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM SOL-MATES! Host Segments: That's right -- DOCTOR Devori Kimbro; Pervy Redneck Jewelers; Joe is a sweet, sweet, innocent boy; Jeff does some uncomfortable conjecturing; we talk way too much about the sexual exploits of...


Sol-Mates #17: Rifftrax Halloween and The Dangers of Pre-Marital Sex

Ch-ch-ch, ka-ka-ka. OK, OK -- we know that's technically Friday the 13th, but "dee-dee-DEE-dee-dee, doo-doo-DOO-doo-doo" doesn't translate as well. In this episode, we tackle a Rifftrax exploration of John Carpenter's holiday classic, Halloween! Host segments: Jeff pulls the ultimate power move; Halloween Starpower; Horny Teens be dying!; The "Rye" Girl; Annie: Horribly Incapable of Living; A stoned Final Girl; Laurie No-Follow-Through; Bot-Longing; Sibling Knife-alry; Halloween's...


SoL-Mates #16: Hobgoblins and Choosing the Right Trench Coat

This may be our favorite episode yet! Jeff got so jazzed about Devori's many, many excellent Stormin' Norman Schwarzkopf jokes that he legit grabbed the mic and that's why his audio is shitty for the last 1/2 of the episode. Theories abound this episode, and we want to know if you can survive the Hobgoblins! Host segments: Average Girls Tryna Be Sexy; Security Guard Fantasies; Time: How does it work?; Devori's Low-Budget Family Film; Nunchuck Robber and His Mom: A Film in One Act; A Kevin...


SoL-Mates #15.5: Killer Shrews Drunk Cut

We decided to see what the fuss was all about with the drinking in Killer Shrews. We we drank. And watched Killer Shrews. Jeff made a too-delicious rum-punch and here's the results. You should hear Joe will tell you when he starts our version (we watched a colorized version on YouTube, but any version will do). Enjoy!
