Episode XCIX: Dr. StrangePod: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Deuce

We're back, and one step closer to the highly anticipated Episode 100, but first we bring you Episode 99, sans Dave. Not to fear though, Mike has support from Dr. Earl and Pinky.

On this episode Mike talks about his boredom at VeggieTales Live!, Dr. Earl acts like it's no big deal to ski at Breckenridge, CO, and Pinky nods and smiles at the two old dudes talking about stuff that old dudes talk about.

Producer Tommy brings in a very special drink from Wally World called Mistic. We, of course, make Pinky try the Carrot Orange flavor.

Mike brings us a new music from the "Yeah Yeah Yeahs," and without Dave there is no palate cleanser, so Mike prevails in bringing the listener the best music on a podcast recorded on a Wednesday night from a basement off the 280 corridor.

We have a listener-fueled "Dying with Dr. Earl" with some very hard-hitting medical questions for the Good Doctor.

A new movie game Mike calls "You're Quite the Character" is introduced, and based upon Dr. Earl's wisdom (not his age) he dominates young Pinky.

We wrap up the show with a Big 3 discussion on our most anticipated summer movies, and, of course, Dr. Earl has to mention some random Terrence Malick film.

Be sure to join us next week for Episode 100. We are having tons of guests, including a very special guest from out of town.

Episode XCVIII: Pod & Podderer: When Mikey Met d$

It's another step closer to silencing the critics who said we'd never make it to 100... or those who never said we'd make it to 10.  That includes Hurricane Rhett, who joins us tonight for our 98th journey into the airwaves of eternal podcastial lore and love.

We kick it off by answering the age ol' question... can you still poke on Facebook?  d$ finds out.  We hear another word from our sponsor, and we begin our regaling of sordid tales of StadiumFest and if Switchfoot ducked the Jesus word... what is the name of that Christian clown guy?!.... more trips to the zoo for Mikey and the family... K-Mart's brilliant, edgy ad (and whether we've ever heard the words "edgy", "brilliant" and "K-Mart" in concurrent usage in a sentence... the difference in bike helmets and storm helmets... and McDonald's customer service problem.

Mikey has some band that sounds like a mexican Lisa Loeb... d$ has not one, but TWO palet cleansers... and we dive into the Final Four of the Awesome Bracket...

Movies discussed tonight include "The Place Beyond the Pines"... "Green Lantern" (!)... "American Loser"... "Django Unchained"... "The Campaign"... and the possibility of Dr. Earl's favorite movie getting a sequel... that's right, the Terrance Malick/Method Man collaboration of a possible second "How High" movie.

Our Big Three gives us our favorite TV Finales of All Time, including thoughts on BSG... Lost... 24... Wonder Years and more...

Plus, we dig on Disney's plans for more and more Star Wars... the prospect of the Justice League movie... the upcoming Superman film and its lack of kryptonite... the love of The Clone Wars... more rants on Facebook moms... Psy's new cut... Ryan Gosling and ninjas...

And of course... Demi Lovato

Plus?   Seagal Watch

Episode XCVI: No Pods Barred

It's a host-filled episode once again, as the boys decide to shed the burden of silly rants... goofy diagnoses... and dumb junior ideals.  Mikey and d$ own the mics again, daring anyone to stop their steam train of average intelligence and wholesome mediocrity!

I don't even know what any of that means...

Topics include GI Joe Retaliation, and a performance by RZA that should be nominated for a Razzie like, tomorrow... The Rock's arm butter... feeding homeless people over Easter... dieting... Mikey's former heart surgery diet (even though he's never come close to heart surgery)... some dude named Todd English... watching guys puke after drinking 18 year old Crystal Pepsi... and the pros and cons of Del Taco coming to Birmingham soon...

Mike's Music Minute serves up some vintage crappery, including Thom Yorke and Atoms For Peace.  He's a creep. He's a weirdo.  What's he doing here?  He don't belong here.  He don't belong here.

The WWE takes centerstage as the guys discuss their favorite wrestling matches of all time, including Shawn Michaels taking on Razor Ramon... Hulk vs. Ultimate Warrior... Andre the Giant agreeing to put Hulk Hogan "Over" in WrestleMania III... the joy of the Elimination Chamber... and the very first Clash of the Champions, featuring Sting vs Ric Flair (notably, the last match ever on WCW Nitro in September of 2000)

Other news includes "Finding Dory", the new Pixar sequal to "Finding Nemo"... the Hall of Iron Man Armor at Disneyland... Lex Luthor making an appearance in "Man of Steel"... Will Arnett in Michael Bay's TMNT... Wooderson in "Interstellar"... Fast 6... and the closing of Lucas Arts.  Sad day.

The 2nd Round of The Big Bracket is complete, as Mikey & d$ discuss surprises like Metallica over Pearl Jam and The Shawshank Redemption over Optimus Prime... tough battles like The WWE taking on The Walking Dead... and big Sweet Sixteen battles, like the aforementioned Shawshank Redemption vs. The Empire Strikes Back--and which is more awesome.

And what show would be complete without Demi?  Not ours.
