Seriously Felicity | Drawing the Line, Part 1

Kristi and I talk about an extra serious episode of Felicity that's all about drawing boundaries. Some of them are fun, like Noel's trying to set boundaries on what Felicity can complain to him about. Others are much more somber.

AfterLUNCH | Trendy Movies - Höllenküche

To quote David St. Hubbins and Nigel Tufnel, "It's such a fine line between stupid and clever." In this episode, Rob and I are joined by Sue London and Jeff Somogyi to test that line by workshopping a movie based on whatever was trending on Twitter at the time.

My buddy Dan Taylor and I have worked on a few different podcasts together and our latest collaboration is a lucha libre cinema show called Luchador Gringo and el Mayo. We're basically exploring and learning about lucha libre movies together (though he's way ahead of me on the curve) starting with the classic Santo and Blue Demon vs. the Monsters. Available wherever you like to listen to podcasts.

AfterLUNCH | Godzilla vs. Kong (2021)

Rob and I welcome some new voices to AfterLUNCH to talk about Legendary Entertainment's MonsterVerse and drill deep into the Hollow Earth and the current Godzilla vs. Kong film. Joining the panel are a trio of giant monster super-fans: Sophie (a long-time friend of mine who lives in the UK), Corinna Bechko (who not only writes cool comics like The Expanse and Smithsonian Dig It: Dinosaurs & Other Prehistoric Creatures, but also has a background in zoology and worked professionally with both giant lizards and primates), and David May (my son and frequent podcast partner).

AfterLUNCH | After Dinner Lounge, Apr 2021 (Jughead's Hat)

Rob, Evan, Pax, and I gather for another after dinner conversation sparked by what we've been listening to, reading, watching, and thinking about. Discussions start from the following topics, but meander:
  • Podcasts like The Classic Tales, Writers/Blockbusters, Judge John Hodgman, and The History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps.
  • The poetry of Emily Dickinson and Langston Hughes
  • Books like The Exploits of Arsène Lupin by Maurice Leblanc, the Darth Bane trilogy by Drew Karpyshyn, and Marvel Classic Novels - X-Men and the Avengers: The Gamma Quest Omnibus by Greg Cox.
  • Comics like the Thor Eternals saga, A Silent Voice, Vol. 1 by Yoshitoki Ōima, and Star Trek:Year Five.
  • Movies like April Fool's Day, A Star is Born, and Godzilla vs Kong.
  • TV series like Lovecraft Country, Bleak House, Resident Alien, and The Haunting of Hill House.
  • And real talk about wedding rings, racism, pets, and staying young.

AfterLUNCH | Making Muppet Movies

Rob and I steal a popular Twitter meme with the help of both fresh and familiar voices. My college pal Faith Regn makes her podcast debut alongside our good friend Kay and the Muppetational return of Carlin Trammel! Our sensational, inspirational, celebrational panel creates five new Muppet movies by picking existing non-Muppet films, keeping one or two human actors, and replacing the rest of the cast with Muppets. Tune in for new Muppet capers and mysteries and maybe even some Muppets in space.
