Project: CHALLENGED's good fortune with friendly visits continues as our buddy Rob flies all the way from California just to lend some respectability to our humble show. Our decimals got a little Dewey as Rob regaled us with tawdry tales of life behind the stacks: An office job not unlike most, except when your patrons are scrogging in the reference section. Reminiscing on pro wrestling starts out all Dude Love, but ends with the Iron Sheik selling autographs at a Chuck E. Cheese. Oh, and...

There's nothing better than being surrounded by old friends while mourning the loss of another: Doug, Eric, and comic-buff Carl pay their respects to the legendary Adam West. Carl explains the deft skill necessary to play a video game, train for a triathlon, and waterboard an albino simultaneously. DC demonstrates its reboot prowess with The Flintstones, while Universal follows the tired track to trainwreck with The Mummy. Eric spins a chilling campfire tale of broken servers and manual...

6/15/2017

Doug and Eric agree that E3 2017 wasn't mind-blowing, but there is still no bigger week in gaming news. We canvas the highlights from PS4, XBOX, and Nintendo as well as the EA, Bethesda and Ubisoft pressers. This episode has been rejected by Sony due to child safety concerns.

6/6/2017
More
SPOILER ALERT!!! Doug, Eric, and Tyler examine Wonder Woman, DC's latest (and certainly greatest) entry to their cinematic universe. This picture finally manages to capture what we love most about our DC characters, and is now worthy of being included in the dialog of great superhero movies alongside Marvel's. Do yourself a huge favor and see the movie before listening! The Challenged are Chugging: Uinta Brewing's Farmside Saison - 5.6% ABV, 14 IBU, 5.0 SRM: Eric & Doug 4/5 Jacob...

5/23/2017
More
Doug & Eric lead with acknowledgment of the tragic news of Chris Cornell, and the no-so-tragic complaints of our butt-hurt President.

Episode 10 - Starscream Wants Lettuce!

5/16/2017
More
Doug & Eric share the story of their first beer, and both hope they're too old to be grounded for it. Public service has never been a strong suit here, but the More You Know the less likely it is that Fisher Stevens will make off with knowledge of your undisclosed rollerblading fetish. Take advantage of the US sans FBI Director and copy every VHS tape you can find! (Especially the Deathstalker series) P:C debates the ethics of downloading copyrighted games and TV.

Episode 7 - Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride

4/12/2017
More
Doug and Eric devote an episode to the flurry of announcements and activity from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with a dash of Justice League and America Gods thrown in for good measure. Somehow the conversation devolves into a defense of Dane Cook, before we wax sentimental on comedy theory and the creative process. OBLIGATORY SPOILER ALERT!!!
