UNT 38: Bright

Critics and viewers are torn on this one. But weren’t. Not really. With polarising reviews, Netflix’s newest film has nevertheless succeeded in being one of the most watched movies in streaming service history. But is it any good? We attempted to answer that and many other questions on Episode 38, when we decided to reject the Dark Lord and watch the new movie Bright, starring everybody’s favourite Jersey Girl cameo: Will Smith. Oh, and Aussie Joel Edgerton is in this too, but if you’re...


DATES 19: Jack Link's Dried Breakfast Sausage

This week on the DATEScast, our snackologists turn our 14-part series, DATES with Craig, into a subscription snack box service. Get yours today. They also bravely venture into breakfast meat stick country with this week's snack, Jack Link's Dried Breakfast Sausage. With Applesauce. Is it a game changer for the morning or an abomination before God? And speaking of game changers, a variation could result in the biggest rating swing in DATES history. Wake up, wake up, wake's time to...


315: Let Braun Eat Cake

You can tell there’s anticipation in the air as we get closer to RAW’s 25th Anniversary and the Royal Rumble next week – we’ve got a big crew on board to talk about WWE this week! Plenty to run through, from the good (hooray for Ricochet and Candice LeRae!) … the bad (is Paige’s career over?) … and the ugly (Jey Uso’s DUI and Roman Reign’s PED past) – to solid action across the board with RAW, SmackDown, and even the new Mixed Match Challenge on Facebook Watch. Featuring: ‘The Beast from...


DATES 18: Super Mario Cereal

IT'S ME...MARIO!! This week on the DATEScast, our heroes use their extra lives to traverse the lost levels of Wal-Mart and bring back this week's hard to find snack, Super Mario Cereal. While they do reminisce on their time with Mario and Luigi fondly, our Super Snack Bros. subjectively decide this cereal's fate. Does it deliver the Saturday morning goodness we're all looking for? Or is our princess in another castle? Find out these answers and so much more on World 2-8 of Derek and Tim...


314: The Bálor Club is REEEEEAL

Well, we’re officially a full week into 2018 and Josh still can’t say “Mixed Match Challenge.” Featuring: ‘The Beast from the Middle East’ Darrell Johnson (@zazzumplop), Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag) and ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman). Music by The Black Furies, courtesy of Music Alley.


UNT: 37 Kevin Smith

UNT kicks off the New Year in style with Episode 37. That's right, 37... in a row. Since almost every one of our previous episodes has in some way managed to reference Kevin Smith, we thought it was about time we dedicated an entire show (on purpose) to the man behind Silent Bob. And this one is almost as long as those Hobbit movies about walking. Yoshi returns from the Transmissions Podcast and we welcome friend of the show and Greig's hetero life mate, Steve to join our all round...


CJAE 46: PCW ULTRA Anniversary 2K18!

Happy New Year, sailors! Settle in as Captain Jack (@JackHeartless) welcomes PCW ULTRA booker & member of WARBEAST, Josef (@CVLTofWARBEAST), for a special interview. No stone is left unturned, as they talk about Josef's time in the business, touring Puerto Rico and Japan, learning from Kevin Sullivan, his tenure as NWA World's Champion, and the way forward for PCW ULTRA. He goes into trajectories for production, storytelling, fostering homegrown talent, and bringing in the finest from...


313: Wrestle Kingdom 12

I’m not sure what’s motivating WWE to continue to put on quality television through the holiday season, but I certainly love it. Whether it’s increased pressure from shows like New Japan’s Wrestle Kingdom or (more likely) pressure from the highest stock prices $WWE has ever seen – it’s a blessing to the fanbase to be able to catch some solid shows as we begin an early start on the road to the Royal Rumble. Speaking of New Japan, though, we are recording this week’s show just moments before...


DATES 17: Marsha's Homemade Buckeyes

This week on the DATEScast, we continue our 14-part series DATES with Craig with a regional delicacy from the great state of Ohio, Marsha's Homemade Buckeyes. Our snackologists pick, eat and rate while investigating the homemade claims made on the packaging. Are these buckeyes actually made by Marsha after a long day of being a successful businesswoman and mother, or were they manufactured at the Cheesecake Factory? Featuring: Derek Montilla (@cap_kaveman) & Tim Agne (@timagne) Music by:...


DATES 16: Milano Slices Peppermint Cookies

Merry Snackmas to you and yours, Dateys! One of our favorite listeners Craig helps get our snackologists in the holiday spirit with a very special box of treats he sent in. So on this edition of DATES with Craig, Derek and Tim try one of the GOATS in the Christmas snack game, Pepperidge Farms' delightful seasonal cookie Peppermint Milano Slices. Find out if these ratings are real or if we're all just actually powering the Matrix with our dicks. Featuring: Derek Montilla (@cap_kaveman) &...


312: Weekend at Borgie's

I hate myself for having made the cover image for this episode. That said, Adam is in town for the holidays, and so we did one of those old-fashioned in-studio-only episodes! Screw you, Skype! Featuring: Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag), ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman), Bryan ‘Pipe Bomb’ Gregston (@guitarsalad), and ‘A Bomb’ Adam Hess (@ahess49). Music by The Black Furies, courtesy of Music Alley.


CJAE 45: Season's Beatings!

Captain Jack (@JackHeartless) & returning guest host David Hayes (@Davie06) aren't usually big on holiday spirit. the history of pro wrestling, one Christmas moment outshines all others before or since: The moment when "Rowdy" Roddy Piper beat the crap out of Bobby "The Brain" Heenan on Prime Time Wrestling for spilling the beans on national television about Santa Claus. Join us and watch along at, as we cover the Christmas Day '89 edition of Prime...


UNT 36: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Please hold for the Unfunny Nerd Tangent. We're a little tied up right now — getting fifty shades of Snoke in the supreme leader's red room. No, we can't put on a towel or something. Our nerd tangent began with The Force Awakens, plunged into a warm BACTA tank with Rogue One, and now we're milking the engorged space-walrus teat of Episode VIII. We won't name names, Greig, but somebody on the podcast is one of those fake fans who didn't think this movie was the greatest thing since sliced...


311: Clash of Champions 2017 Results

Have you ever made out on Rusev Day? Displayed a kiss that made the day? I say.. Play a track from your record collection . It’s your mix. Congratulations! Featuring: Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag) and ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman). Music by The Black Furies, courtesy of Music Alley.


CJAE 44: Blood, Sweat and Trophies!

This week, Captain Jack Heartless (@JackHeartless) is joined by Chris Damasceno (@BrasilianFury) from Strong Style Story podcast (@StrongStylStory) to talk about the week in New Japan…and what a week it was! New matches announced for WrestleKingdom 12, the official announcement that we, indeed, have a DOUBLE main event (sorry, Naito!), a new team winning the World Tag League, and the wild build to ALPHA VS. OMEGA kicking into high gear! Sponsored by Wrestling4Sale (@wrestling4sale)....


310: Night of Champions 2017 Preview

Yep! Yep! Yep! Despite the non-ending of RAW, it was another pretty fun show and a fun main event. Plenty of intrigue leads us to next week’s Lesnar appearance as we make our way through a pretty solid holiday season for WWE. Over on the blue brand, we’re gearing up for Night of Champions, as the KO/SZ(/DB???) vs Shane McMahon angle continues to build… Featuring: ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman), ‘The Beast from the Middle East’ Darrell Johnson (@zazzumplop), and ‘Super Jew’...


DATES 15: Prongles

What the hell are Prongles? Are they actually chips? Is it a card game? What are the makers of Cards Against Humanity up to with this Black Friday product that popped out of nowhere? On this episode of the DATEScast, our heroic snackologists have vowed to eat whatever is in this tube. Whether it's actually food or not. Once you pop, they're great. Featuring: Derek Montilla (@cap_kaveman) & Tim Agne (@timagne) Music by: Polly Hall & Andrew Barkan, and Prongles Inspired by: Mike and Tom Eat...


UNT 35: The Disaster Artist

Has everybody betray you? Are you fed up with this worl? It's no problem. James Franco has big Hollywood movie for you. In The Disaster Artist, Franco transforms into Tommy Wiseau, the enigmatic Frankenstein (or maybe vampire) behind The Room — the best worst movie ever made. How is this unlikely biopic doing with critics? Oh, high marks (you can blame Bryan for that one). So put on your tux, grab your favorite football, pour yourself a Scotchka and lube up your belly button because we're...


CJAE43: SoCal Indiemania!

This week, Captain Jack (@JackHeartless) is joined by @ShakeThemRopes co-host Jeff Hawkins (@Crapgame13) as they talk about the great independent shows that transpired in southern California back on December 1st. While Jeff attended a stellar outing from the ladies of RISE (@RISEdtwa), Jack was across town at PCW ULTRA (@PCWULTRA). They provide a full rundown of both shows, including meeting Stan Hansen, incurring the wrath of Madusa, a cage match in an American Legion hall, old-school...


309: The Woken Podcast

Jason Jordan, rising star. Matt Hardy, crazed genius. Samoa Joe, badass prize fighter. Yes, yes, and yes. Add an intriguing women’s faction and a roster of talent on 205 Live who are looking to make an even bigger presence felt in 2018 – and you’ve got a great recipe for good wrestling product on RAW. Over on the SmackDown side of things, KO and Sami Zayn are carrying the blue brand as we get closer to seeing Daniel Bryan make some moves… Featuring: Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage /...
