There’s nothing that three dudes in their twenties are more qualified to do than try to tackle the problems of a teenage girl. Ian, John and special guest Pat O’Rourke proved that over and over again while talking about the nineties high school drama My So-Called Life starring Claire Danes and Jared Leto. Guns, zits and Twilight only grace the surface of this special live episode recorded at The Bughouse Theater.
Pat is back in the Ozman Lofts! To celebrate both his return to Chicago and the Pitchfork Music Festival real life musician and pirate shanty extraordinaire Berry St. Pierre. His alter-ego PRPS! killed it this weekend, and he blew all the hipster kids minds my combining classics like YO HO HO and new favorites like MOLLY.
What’s crappening in this episode: CORRECTION: Jacksonville is in Duval County, 3 years in Chicago, Pluto, teachers are liars, things must be cheap in Iowa, state symbol draft, starting a zine, free milk, milkshake machine, lunch lady practical jokes, Comic-Con, Star Wars books, shout out to @supergeekmike
With Tell Me You Love Me, HBO dove genitals first into an exploration of love, commitment and intimacy through the lives of three couples and their shared therapist. The show only lasted ten episodes but the depictions of frustration and graphic sexuality will last a lifetime. Ian, John and special guest Maddie Byrne held nothing back on this one. Nothing. Warning: If we could put an MPAA rating on this episode, it would be NC-17.
Pat is still on the road, so he takes another listener call. Corey Brown, from Roscoe Village, calls in to tackle the stats and change the game for the Rockies from the Roscoe Village Under 12 Baseball League. Let’s just say, the manager sucks, the line-up needs to be changed, and all the best players were on baseball cards in the 80s.
We get into it early with Sam Mamaghani and Cam Johnson, who waste no time revealing some truly embarassing moments from their past. We see an underwear salesperson who is truly committed to ther job, a peculiar way to care for an ice rink, and we take your (dependebly ridiculous) Twitter suggestions!
James speaks to Jack Norris about the return of Blue Rose, Green Ronin’s new take on the original romantic fantasy RPG. We calk about changes to the setting, updates to AGE, and design goals for the new edition.
Pat is on the road, so he takes a call from his listeners. Or better put, he takes a call from his listener. James Quartz calls into the show with an offer that Pat can not refuse. He tries many times throughout the episode, but it just doesn’t work. This is the first listener call, but not the last! Hopefully the next call will be from a real fan. If they exist.
What’s crappening in this episode: Most flags are racist, Congressional Wikipedia Edits, Ted Cruz does The Simpsons, Bernie Sanders, Open Carry, military tattoos, Six Flags, making oil, Children of Men, Anthem, Frankenstein, cards and cakes, dildo flag, terminal velocity
Cavemen answers the age old question, “Can you take a 15 second joke and turn it into 13 half-hour episodes?”. Based on the popular Geico Insurance Ad-Campaign, this 2007 sit-com took a familiar format and gave it a beard, long hair, and deep eyebrows. Join Ian, John and special guest Tyler McGourty as they debate if this show has any merit whatsoever.
