Happy Hanukkah! Rus & Pat are back, this time talking about holidays, religion, the winter solstice, art history, art school, and the mid-season finale of The Flash! At some point, we discuss fine art versus commercial art, how much of the fine art world is elitist bullshit, and how old masters like Michelangelo were actually commercial artists.
Lucky 13! This is a weird one. Topics range from television shows like The 100 and the latest episode of The Flash to gluten, bullies, vegans and vegetarians (Pat’s one of ’em), comedian Maurice LaMarche, and a brief exchange about the incredible illustrator Drew Struzan and the documentary about his career, Drew: The Man Behind the Poster. Be sure to check our All-Things-Geek page for related posts, videos, and links! And as always, we thank you for listening!
Maybe our most fun episode yet? We’ll let you decide, but we really enjoyed making this one! We start off talking about algebra, rocket science, and the amazing event this week of the European Space Agency landing a probe on a frickin’ comet! Then we get all paleontological and debate how the dinosaurs went extinct about 65 million years ago (possibly from a comet impact). After we recap our feelings on the latest episode of the fun new CW superhero show The Flash, we take on a listener suggestion and recast an existing movie, in this case The Expendables! After you listen, check out our movie poster on our All-Things-Geek page and let us know what you think of our choices. While you’re there, take a look at our other posts related to this episode and previous eps.
Right on the heels of episode 6, we’re live with Episode 7! Why record again so soon? So that we could discuss the movie schedule released yesterday from Marvel Studios for comicbook movies through 2019! We discuss upcoming superhero movies from Marvel, DC (Warner Bros.), Fox, and Sony. Actually getting to the topic of the day proves to be a challenge for us, however — once again — as we travel back to the ’70s to talk about childhood celebrity crushes, bad superhero shows, and Silver Spoons. For better or worse, this is our longest podcast yet, clocking in at 1 hour and 22 minutes, but there are plenty of spots to pause and resume listening later, so don’t be afraid to dive in!
Spoiler alert for Live, Die, Repeat: Edge of Tomorrow (and others).
Watch for a new podcast later this week!
