Then Isaac and Charles decide on the appropriate anti-Semitism warning sound for the show. Send in your own clips!

The Assassination of Isaac’s Acting Episode by the Coward Erik Escobar

1/11/2018

Inspired by a Reddit thread, Isaac has been planning an episode about great acting scenes in movies.

Touch Me! with Conner Habib

1/2/2018
More
Conner Habib is back on the podcast, this time to talk about the Weinstein Effect, and whether people are still able to touch and connect in the same ways that they did before.

12/26/2017
More
A brief followup to “The 8 Worst Podcast Voices on Gimlet Media” episode. Chris Callahan and Rachel Louie lend their opinions to an important question: does Charles have vocal fry?

Porn is Good For You! with Conner Habib

12/19/2017
More
This week’s guest is teacher, thinker, philosopher, podcaster, and gay porn star Conner Habib. Conner shares his background and talks about how he got into porn. Noted anti-porn crusader Isaac questions whether porn is bad for society and why it might be creating the much-discussed “Herbivore Men.” Other topics: Trump (of course), why you feel weird after an orgasm, Freud’s death drive, and what gay men like to watch, porn-wise. Also Charles embarrasses Isaac by reading from his emails....

Minisode: The Shadowbanning of Isaac Simpson

12/14/2017
More
Beloved journalist Isaac Simpson wrote a benign personal essay for Medium about his experience leaving social media (https://medium.com/@IsaacSimpson/how-leaving-social-media-affects-your-mind-c9e22df2c354). When he posted it to a tech subreddit, however, a bunch of commenters freaked out and Isaac’s article was removed without his knowledge. Charles and Isaac investigate! Reddit thread in question: https://www.reddit.com/r/tech/comments/7d7ac3/how_leaving_social_media_affected_my_mind/

Minisode: Apple is Screwing You

12/12/2017
More
Isaac and Charles discuss a New York Times article contending that planned obsolescence (the by-design eventual failure of a gadget) is not a real thing. Both disagree and cite their own phone experiences as proof. This leads to an argument over whether news orgs should insert fact-checking parentheticals into their headlines, as well as how Trump’s tweets are bad for the country, and if George Soros is too-often unfairly maligned as a dark controller of the left rather than just a liberal...

Southland Tales is a Masterpiece

12/5/2017
More
Audience favorite Evan Williams is back on this week to talk with Charles and Isaac about Richard Kelly’s Donnie Darko followup Southland Tales, which was released in the US ten years ago. Charles thinks the film is a flawed masterpiece, Isaac believes it’s an ego-driven failure, and Evan falls somewhere in between. Everyone attempts to explain the plot, to little avail. The big question: how does this movie exist? Isaac suggests it’s a filmmaker drunk on acclaim and power, Charles claims...

Is This the End of Great Men?

11/28/2017
More
Charles recently read the Walter Isaacson biography of Steve Jobs, and that becomes today’s jumping-off point for a conversation with Isaac and returning guest Dan D’Aprile about “great men” and whether what fuels them to achieve is also what powers their dark sides, as seen in countless recent examples like Weinstein, Louis CK, and so many others. Are great men so used to imposing their will on the field in which they excel that they begin applying it everywhere else in their lives? Do...

Episode 666: Elsa Toilet Wedding Prank

11/21/2017
More
Time for an #Elsagate investigation! Charles and Isaac are joined by Evan Williams and Dan D’Aprile for a dark trip down the rabbit hole that is #Elsagate, a broad description for a series of creepy and unsettling videos and cartoons showing up on YouTube, ostensibly aimed at children but featuring inappropriate imagery utilizing pop culture characters like Spider-Man and Elsa from Frozen. Theories abound regarding #Elsagate’s origins: is it pedo ring communication? Russian asymmetrical...

Episode 853: Guys We Cucked! featuring Sam Harris

11/16/2017
More
If you like self-indulgent, meta-babbling, this is the episode for you! Isaac and Charles beg for your podcast reviews and then discuss whether episode titles should contain their number. Also debated: what the description of the show should be (and what it shouldn’t be). Should there be a marketing plan? Charles pretentiously posits that Isaac is unable to hear what makes for a good episode because Charles has art school training. Isaac makes himself equally hateable by using the term...

Minisode: What is Evil?

11/14/2017
More
A short conversation between Isaac and Charles on the nature of evil, spurred by Sword & Scale’s infamous Episode 20! Should people be locked up just for thinking and expressing abhorrent thoughts?

Blade Runner 2049 is a Terrible Great Film

11/7/2017
More
*SPOILERS* Isaac and Charles do not agree on the new Blade Runner film. Isaac thinks it’s boring and doesn’t go anywhere, Charles thinks it’s visually stunning and faithfully follows the aesthetic of the first film. Both agree that whether you like the first movie will determine your feelings about the second. Isaac thinks his distaste for the film is rooted in his lack of interest in stories about whether AI characters have human feelings; Charles posits that the film is a mirror image of...

Pound Me Too!

10/31/2017
More
It’s #MeToo time! Rachel Louie comes on the show to discuss the social media phenomenon and its implications for the advancement of the rights of women. Isaac, Charles, and Rachel all agree as to its value but have some concerns about whether #MeToo will go the way of many social media “awareness” campaigns and simply turn into just another attention-seeking mechanism. The proper pronunciation of the word “ogling” is heatedly disputed and then everyone reluctantly listens to a clip from...

Isaac and Charles go on a listening tour of the various hosts of shows on Gimlet Media, the Ira Glass-inspired narrative podcast company where everyone has an annoying voice, as well as Glass-adjacent NPR podcasts. Isaac plays clips from Reply All, StartUp, Homecoming, Heavyweight, Missing Richard Simmons, S-Town, and the granddaddy of them all: This American Life. The term “whimper fry” is defined and Isaac and Charles alternate cringing at everyone’s ironic fake voices. Isaac believes...

Minisode: Flashmob Flashback

10/19/2017

An old Washington Post article on a “Pantsuit Power Flashmob” takes Isaac and Charles on a horrifying trip down memory lane. Here’s the opening: “It came together in about a week. First, the idea for a punchy, uplifting dance video that would tell a story about diversity, difference and communal support. Then, 170 dancers, a few hours of rehearsals–and pantsuits. Lots of pantsuits.” A bite-sized NAHF episode. Tell us if you want more content like this! We probably won’t listen. Article...
