No 74: Lord Of The Rings

JRR Tolkien sat down and wrote a book. A big book. A really big book. And then he wrote another big book and a third big book. These series of books would change the fantasy genre for all time, bringing it to the fore front of pop culture. Today we learn where Tolkien would get his inspiration from, and also how to properly say Tolkien. And not only do we tackle the book, but we also talk about the Peter Jackson film trilogy, and the animated version of The Hobbit. Explicit Language thanks...


No 73: The Narration Of McDonalds

You deserve a break today. Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese. Ronald McDonald. Ba Ba Ba Ba Baaaaaaaa I'm loving it. McDonalds is as much a part of American Pop Culture as binge watching old Friends episodes on the couch in your underwear.

Explicit Language Featured Beer: Shmaltz Brewing Company's Terrans Unite IPL


No 67: Degrassi

If you attend school on this certain street in Canada, chances are that you will face all sorts of hardships, trials, and tribulations.

No 62: Urban Legends

Did Richard Gere put a hampster up his butt? Did he put it up someone else's butt? Did Rod Stewart go to the hospital for a stomach pumping?

No 59: Twilight Zone

It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.

It is an area which we call the Podcast 42 Zone. Featured Beer: Red Cypress Brewing's Spook Hill


No 58: Caddyshack

This movie was made on top of a party on top of a hurricane. We relive a brief history of the making of 1980's Caddyshack based on the book by Chris Nashawaty: Caddyshack A Cinderella Story.
