SoL-Mates #14: Jack Frost and Arranged Marriages

This week's episode is more fragrant than a pile of lutefisk and as strong as a bracing shot of vodka. It's the Russo-Finnish Troika classic Jack Frost! Will Nastya wake up after touching Jack's death-staff? Will Marfushka get what's coming to her? What the hell was the deal with the pig sled? All these questions and more might be answered here, but mostly we talk about how metal Jack Frost is. Host segments: Ivan and Nastya -- like cream and OJ; Bargain Bin Fairy Tales; All our Grandmas are...

Sol-Mates Shorts: Hobbit Day Explained

We've known each other for a long time, y'all - and as Joe and Devori prepare to head west to celebrate Hobbit Day (one of our longest traditions as friends) we thought you might want to more know more about Hobbit Day! Or not! It's really up to you, we guess. But please listen to this short anyway.

SoL-Mates #13: Fugitive Alien and How To Lose a Girl in 10 Seconds

Oh boy! This episode is a doozy, but at least none of us were killed with a forklift -- just a few sake bombs. We take on an MST3K classic, Fugitive Alien, and try to figure out just what the hell is the deal with Japan. Also, Devori and Joe recap their exciting trip to Nashville to see the MST3K Live Tour! Host Segments: Joe temporarily forgets Devori; Kenifornians; Who's who on the Ken-enity?; KTMAlien; Crying in a Waffle House; Jeff, MiMi, and Devori's College Daze; Jeff old-mansplains...

SoL-Mates #12: Colossus and the Headhunters and Improper Uses of the Casting Couch

Stay bronze, Pony-boy. We're gliding into the end of our Summer of Pecs. The sun descends on yet another good, good Maciste boy. Well -- not a great Maciste. In fact, oofta - this was kind of a stinker. The Maciste Industrial Grind is kind of getting to us. Host Segments: Nummy Muffin Redux, The Norman Krasner of MST3K Episodes, Metal Maciste, MiMi Ruins Everything, An Audio Tour of Idaho State University Restrooms, Maciste Boot Camp, Peplum Fiction, The Ad Break Goes Off the Rails, A...

SoL-Mates #11: The Loves of Hercules and Responsible Rebounding

We're right in the middle of our Summer of Pecs, and just like the lovely ladies in the Loves of Hercules, we're obsessed. MiMi's obsessed over Herc's mental health, Devori's obsessed with M. Waverly, Jeff's obsessed with Jayne Mansfield's "assets," and as a result, Joe's obsessed with Audacity's "cut" tool. We apologize for scream-singing so much, too. But not really. Host Segments: Podcast Confessions, Dubious Mythology, Boy-Crazy Ladies of the Ancient World, Daianera O'Hara, Comparative...

SoL-Mates #10: Hercules Against the Moon Men and Regular Booby Trap Exams

Well, folks -- here it is! Our tenth episode! And believe it or not, we completely. Didn't. Remember. On top of that, we recorded this episode very late at night, and we were plagued with technical issues. But we still managed to talk about how orange Alan Steele is. Because we owe that to you -- our listeners. Host segments: Jeff's unique man-skirt problems, mommy-jacking the rebellion, "Son of a Preacher Man" = Jeff's Panama Invasion, Maciste Industrial Complex, The Science of Sandstorm,...

SoL-Mates #8: Cave Dwellers and Finding Love at the Ends of the Earth

We're only eight episodes in, and we've already discovered MST3K's dirty little secret -- a lot of mid-80s porn directors. Enjoy us trying to find things to say about one of our favorite episodes. Then, go play a rousing game of "Mila Pyuma!" in the pool. BTW, MiMi and Jeff manage to make their honeymoon sound super creepy. Host segments: Getting a Riff Fix, Passive-Aggressive Uncle Jimmy's, Jeff Old-Mansplains Non-Smoking Sections to Us, Conveniently Forgotten Incest, MiMi and Jeff's...

SoL-Mates #7: Zombie Nightmare and Pickin' Up Sleazy Chicks

Up front, we'll let you know that this episode is a pack of lies. We discussed the mystery of 8 inches of penis extensively, but Joe didn't think you needed to hear that and cut it out. The rest of the episode is pretty good, though. We discuss Zombie Nightmare with as much aplomb as you can without talking about 8 inches of penis. Also, we're interrupted by a teenager and goes about as well as you can imagine. Host segments: The tastiest zombie (cocktail), Jeff tells us the thing about...

SoL-Mates #6: Robot Holocaust and Scraping the Bottom of the Barrel

Oof. This was a tough one. But we endured. Host segments: FUCK that guy!, The Pleasure Chamber, Marble-Gargling Sluts, Do Robots Need Humans?, Gay Porn Directors and the Angry Dome

SoL-Mates #5: Hamlet and Dealing With Daddy Issues

To watch the MST3K Hamlet episode, or not to watch the MST3K Hamlet episode -- that was the question. And we did. So, that's the answer. In this episode we discuss how Pearl and Brain Guy managed to dupe Mike and the Bots into watching one of the worst versions of one of the greatest dramas ever. Devori tries not to get too pretentious, Jeff screams obscenities, MiMi does her best German accent, and Joe just tries to wrangle us all. Host Segments: We try prestige podcasting, Jeff Smith:...

SoL-Mates #4: Reptilicus and Seeing Other People

Sometimes, it's tough meeting new people. This was not the case for us with MST3K: The Return, however. Host segments: fears assuaged, duelling Reptilicii, Dirch Passer's School of Comedic Engineering, the Copehagen folk dancing scene, Joe and Jeff give horrible dating advice.

SoL-Mates #3: I Accuse My Parents and Improper Handling Of Feet

Will Jimmy pay for his crimes? Why does he lie so much? Where did all that booze come from? And, for the love of God, won't somebody think of the Truck Farmer? We're accusing everyone this time -- especially your parents. Host Segments: Judge IMDb, Dirty Alton Brown's Mixing Methods, Six Degrees of Jimmy, Sexy Joel, MST3K Marxism, What is the deal with Shirley?, Jimmy's Kampf, I Accuse My Mitchell!
