035 - What's at the Moon's Kaur?

Tangential is loving it’s 30’s and hopes it’s 40’s are just as fun. On the 35th installment of the show, Niki does something he rarely does — review a movie he enjoyed. Jules breaks down the social media poetry landscape and what art critics have to say about it. Somehow the conversation delves into neoliberalism. (It's wild.) Social media. What is social media? What is poetry. (That was a haiku, you’re welcome.)


034 - Rainbow Fish Deserved More

Hello faithful listeners. (Hopefully you are also faithful readers of this weekly blurb you can skim when you click/tap that microscopic carrot.) On the 34th episode of Tangential, Niki and Jules try to problem solve some of Google Sheets’ most frustrating issues. Niki discusses the similarities between Rainbow Fish and Karl Marx and Jules heartily nods her head (and soul) in agreement. Ever heard of eyelash mites? Well now you have. #dontblink #getitquestionmark...


033 - Every Day Is A Week Long

030 - I Am The Pretty Thing With Small Pox

This week, Nicholas decides that he wants to take y'all on a trip to SF. Whatever happened to predictability? Probably went to the same place that the men who delivered beverages for the lactose tolerant and the youths who threw printed media at your property went. Joined by some of his college buds, Niki digs deep into leotard lore. Before that Jules complains about fraudulent pasta and her #spooky movie recommendation of the week. Thanks for getting to Episode 30, friends!


029 - It's Like a Goose Down There

This week, Niki and Jules push technology to its furthest limits by attempting to record audio in three radically separate locations: Brooklyn, Windsor Hills, and, wait for it…The Valley. Join the duo in welcoming writer/journalist, Elly Belle to the mic. If you’re pumped to hear about vagina dentata, Cynthia Nixon’s breakfast go-to, and a video game that Niki claims is impossible to get motion sickness from, look no further than Episode 29 of Tangential.


028 - Why Hasn't Griffith Observatory Burned Down?

Have you started HBO’s new hit limited series, Sharp Objects? Well thanks to Jules and her long-winded segment on Muchausen Syndrome By Proxy, you don’t have to. Later in the show, you will have the unique experience of joining one man on his journey to musical enlightenment via BioWare’s Dragon Age. Plus, Niki and Jules introduce a brand-new closing segment that reveals the size of their consumer footprint.


027 - Ban Computers, imo

Life is like a hurricane here in Duck - burg. Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes it's a, duck - blur! Might solve a mystery, or rewrite hist'ry! DuckTales! Oo woo oo. Every day they're out there making! DuckTales! Oo woo oo. Tales of daring do bad and good luck tales! Whooh ooh. When it seems they're heading for the final curtain...Cool deduction never fails, that's for certain. The worst of messes become successes. Duck Tales! Whooh ooh. Every day they're out there making DuckTales! Whooh ooh....


026 - We're Goin' To WeWork Camp!

Los Angeles’ hottest podcast is Tangential. This episode has everything: Neopets, dead Orcas, gong therapy (which is that thing where two men in banana costumes slam gongs into the sides of your head like in a cartoon), a real IMAX screen, standup paddleboard yoga, fifteen screens playing The Digimon Movie, and Rainn Wilson doing gross things inside of a dinosaur’s mouth.


025 - I Promise Not To Eat Your Face

Twenty-five. We've made 25 of these dang things. Thanks for listening, y'all. This week, Niki and Jules talk about eating the rich, avocado festivals, coworking spaces, and iPhone jailbreaking. Las Vegas isn't even mentioned once this episode! So much personal growth has happened over the last few episodes.


024 - You Don't Trust Twitter?

On this (slightly late, sorry) episode of Tangential, Jules and Niki chat about the homes of America's most wealthy residents, tire recycling and the third High School Musical movie. Somehow they manage to mention Las Vegas again, which is funny considering how much they dislike it. This one's short, so if you average this week and last week's episodes out, it's like they were both normal length. You're welcome.


023 - The Internet as Spectacle

On the 23rd installment of Tangential, Niki and Jules cascade into tech and philosophy. Listen to Niki break down how you can track the exact whereabouts of America’s sweetheart, LeBron James, when he’s in the sky and roll your eyes as Jules reminisces about her studies in London. Bear with them as they tackle the idea of modernity and feel free to question whether either of them is college educated.


022 - Vegas, Bb

On the 22nd installment of Tangential, Niki and Jules burn the midnight oil before heading off to Sin City. Jules desperately scours the internet for a way to cover up an egg sized mosquito bite and Niki questions Elon Musk’s true intentions concerning world peace. Jules reveals her summer guilty pleasure and Niki delves into Konami’s Metal Gear lore.


021 - Cool for the Summer

We're back! On the the 21st episode of Tangential, Niki and Jules break in Summer 2k18 by talking about postgrad life before arguing about the practical purpose of Twitter. Later Niki gushes about his favorite NBC comedy and Jules talks about her vintage summer binge, Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Are you ready to listen to the duo spit into the mics weekly? Well they’re doing it anyway.


020 - GarageBand Sucks

Jules' audio for the last ~8 minutes of the episode died in a terrible passion so the end of this one's all over the place. We talk about movies and being tired because of school and travel. College is hard, y'all. If anyone wants to let Jules and I into their grad programs please email us.


019 - A Chat with Nailah

This one's all over the place. Our friend Nailah Hollis stops by to talk about ice cream, racist European holidays, and David Lynch.


018 - So They're Making a Frozen Musical...

On this installment of Tangential, Niki discusses the ongoing gentrification of Disney’s California Adventure as well as the new Frozen Broadway musical.

All this and a little less on the 18th episode of Tangential.


017 - Put the Olympics in Wakanda

Just like a white winged dove, we’ve made it to episode seventeen. On this episode Niki and Jules discuss the latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Netflix reboot of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Niki teaches Jules about Winter Olympic Sports and they proceeded to have a heated debate over which Olympic season is more dangerous. All this and a little less on this installment of Tangential.
