Episode 12 - Snoopy w/T. Robert Pigott

9/3/2018
More
At what point does "collection" become "compulsion?" Robby Pigott joins me in the WAIM studio to discuss Snoopy, which is interesting enough; but what if we also started to dissect pop culture and how we use it to create personal identities? Is it less meaningful because someone else created the thing that we use to self-identify? Can an arbitrary choice suddenly become a lifelong obsession? Why didn't Charles Schultz like the name "Peanuts"? All of this and more in this week's episode of...

Episode 4 - Twin Peaks w/Meghan Moroney

7/9/2018
More
Meghan Moroney joins me in the studio to talk about Twin Peaks. Not only do I get a full synopsis of all three seasons, but I learn how the original run basically created television as we now know it. Play along as Meghan names every major TV show from the last 25 years and deftly connects it back to some aspect of Twin Peaks. Basically, they were “Simpsons Did It!” before the Simpsons did it.

We talk about Pokemon, the Legend of Zelda, and attempt to say our names backwards (which is harder than you think). Then, if that weren’t enough, Shammers busts out his favorite toy and lays down some sick beats live on the mic. If you’ve never heard of Nerdcore, or knew that Orlando was a major hub for it, you need to listen to this...
