For months, Brent Hand of Hysteria 51 fame has been requesting to be a judge on an episode of Dueling Decades. The guys love having him as a contestant so much that they were reluctant to pull the trigger on Brent sitting on the other side of the bench. Well, they finally came to their senses and decided to give Brent a crack at swinging the gavel. And since Hysteria 51 covers all things unexplained, they figured it would probably be most fitting to focus the entire episode around the genre of - The Unexplained! So you may hear about ghosts, missing persons, the occult, demons, aliens, slashers, and whatever else they could fit within the unexplained! Our first contestant this week hails from the great white north, Joe Findlay of Miscast Commentary brought whatever unexplained oddities from 1995 that he could unearth. Mancrush is back, minus his favorite shirt that is. After getting shutout for the first time ever, that shirt ended up becoming a pile of ash! Mancrush is out for blood this week, with the unexplained of 1988. Rounding out the competition, Marc James once again had to dig way back into the 70s to conjure up the unexplained of 1977! While none of them will ever be Robert Stack, they try their best to be! Brent uses his Hysteria 51 experience to decide which decade takes this unexplained battle royale, and it comes right down to the wire. In this episode, you just may hear about demonic dolls, clairvoyants that couldn't see their own deaths, Mancrush sees a UFO, the best fight scene in cinematic history, Tobe Hooper brings an origin story to syndication, a 32-year-old sealed package is unveiled LIVE, a board game no one will remember, Joe mystifies with some bootleg Harry Potter, vanishing TV anchors, a transmission that will make you go wow, movies that put Mancrush to sleep, a criminal with a limp, classic science fiction, Richard Dreyfuss just can't catch a break, a soundtrack with a lot of yelling, a song that you might not expect is about aliens, and which toy movie fits this episode's narrative better?

Perfect celebrity guest judge material and Samm sure didn't disappoint when the gavel was in hand!

Bill and Ted Face the Music comes out in a few days, but today these gents will face the music from a couple of Princesses!

Diane Franklin and Kimberley Kates, the REAL Princesses are here! These sisters of 15th century English royalty are in for more time travel, as they judge this "weak" experience between mid-late August 1972, 1985, and 1992! First up, Mike Ranger is back to kick things new school with a triumphant August of 1992. Marc James also climbs into the phonebooth and dials us all the way back to August 1972!

Marc James is a Spin Doctors superfan, and nothing was going to hold him back from being on this episode of Dueling Decades, not even when his Internet lines get cut!

Two hours before our recording with Chris Barron, Marc's Internet lines got cut in a crazy construction snafu, then Mancrush's network card took a dump 30 minutes before call time!

A few weeks back we had professional Wrestler RJ City on the show as guest judge and he dazzled us with his knowledge behind the bench. However, being that the episode was all about wrestling, he felt typecast! In spite of that, we invited him back to judge the "week experience", and he didn't disappoint! Our old friend Beau Becraft is back, and he brought the best of the last week of June 1998 to the party. After a week off from competition, Marc James is back in the fold, and he's got a first-rate week from the end of June 1988. Their final opponent is a man that's been left off the victor's stand for nearly a month, Mancrush looks to finally get off the schneid with the finest he can muster with the last week of June 1978. Will this one be close, or will we see a landslide?  RJ starts the episode off with a special message for our oldest fan, David Moble. Davy boy has been singing our praises for years, and we wanted to share with him how much his loyalty means to us. From there, the competition is as stiff as a lariat from Big Van Vader! In this episode, you might find sexual swing music, the end of prank phone calls, some guy named Coper, sweaty nether regions, Moble's preferred operating system, JLo in a trunk, Hugh Hefner has an auction, Eddie Murphy's extended Universe, potential spoilers from a 1978 classic, an homage to Ben Vereen, hot foreign music, ways to ruin a classic film, immovable rubber toys, men's fashion, smelly math teachers, and how is Beau connected to RJ City's first sexual conquest? All this and more on this episode of Dueling Decades!  Do you agree with RJ's rulings? Play at home and judge for yourself!

This episode was extra special to all of us on Dueling Decades because, like many of you, we spent our formative teen years watching Rhonda Shear on USA's UP All Night! Not only was Rhonda amazing, but she also introduced us to a whole new world of movies that we might never have seen. Had it not been for Rhonda and UP All Night, we might've never found the love for B-Movies that we have today! Our parents also thank Rhonda for being a free babysitter on Friday & Saturday nights as we sat there until the wee hours of the morning watching Reform School Girls and Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death, much appreciated! Sit back, relax, and re-live some of the best B-Movies had to offer. Brent Hand from Hysteria 51 is back and brought the very best of B-Movies from 1993, Mancrush delivers with B-Movies of 1991, and Mike Ranger of the Video Rangers completes the competition with B-Movies of 1988!     There is a ton of B-Movie madness in this episode, and lots of Rhonda stories to satisfy! In this episode, you might find stories about monsters, bad wigs, creepy ex-boyfriends, Rhonda's first episode on UP All Night, cannibals playing instruments, schlinging schlongs, B-Movie mockery, slithery tentacles, Cannon Films, the man responsible for the death of the B-Movie industry, stars that should never get naked, killer clowns, top-secret projects by the government, Gilbert Gottfried, zombies, lack of sleep, lingerie, foot fetishes, Mel Brooks is a good guy, destroyed master tapes, killer bimbos, entrepreneurship, all of our listener & Facebook questions for Rhonda answered, and what sitcom star got Rhonda fired and is a mega douche?      Do you agree with Rhonda's rulings?

Dueling Decades returns with another nostalgic clash!  Legendary comedic actor Michael Winslow steps behind the bench to judge this fantastic episode you have to hear to believe!  Marc James is bad company as he brings the best of June of 1974.  This week Mancrush goes crazy with June of 1984!  The host of the Miscast Commentary Podcast, Joe Findlay returns to the show with June of 1994, brother!   Micheal sounds off about his great film career, from working with Mel Brooks to Rowdy Roddy Piper.  We get the inside scoop on the making of Gremlins and hear what it was like voicing one of the iconic characters.  Joe tells us how long it took to download an Aerosmith song in 1994. Mancrush finds genes from extinct animals as Marc James uncovers the birth of the Seahawks.   Michael tells us how he landed the role of Jones in Police Acadamy and if Rick Moranis is really as cool as everyone says!  Mancrush makes us wonder what happens when you leave Gizmo out in the Purple Rain. Marc James takes a trip to Chinatown and The Juice is loose!   We have a little bit of everything in this one and you never know who is going to show up!  Michael invites some friends over to help him with his judgments.  Red Fox, Pat Morita, Hulk Hogan, Ice T, Snoop Dogg, and even his old friends Cheech and Chong make a joint appearance on this one.  We explore the longevity of music and the reality of reaction videos and was Chuck Norris really supposed to be in The Karate Kid?  Do you agree with Michael’s rulings?

It's been a while since we talked about wrestling with someone who cares! The Honorable David Schultz turned his nose up at every wrestling selection we brought to the table, so it was time we found the right Judge for the case! Professional wrestler RJ City answered the call, and he must have been fresh off his morning coffee in his underwear because this guy is a walking encyclopedia of ALL things; not just wrestling! When he's not tag-teaming with David Arquette, RJ must be reading anything he can get his hands on, because he literally knew about everything we threw at him! Beau Becraft joins us this week, and he's happy as a schoolboy on pizza day to be back with all the wrestling accolades of 1995! His first opponent Mancrush is still reeling from defeat and looks to right the ship with wrestling of 1989. Rounding out our contestants for this week, Marc James prepares to dismantle the competition with wrestling of 1981.  RJ City is ready to deliver a "Knee Arthur" to anyone who steps out of line, but did we give him a reason to? There are so many deep dives in this episode! RJ's thoughts on signing with a major organization, cobb salads, the return of the Mongolian Stretcher match, the birth of real wrestling competition, empty arenas, The Oak Ridge Boys, David Moble loves baklava hausen, 5 Star matches, Hall of Famers, rubber toys that don't belong to Mom, Vince McMahon stranded on a roof, the best linebacker to ever live, horrible movies, good movies, horrible TV shows that paved the way for a new world order, local bands that suck, 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon that's beyond belief, Lewis Arquette is super fly, Ox Baker is everywhere, grabbing cake, the WWE's most successful movie, arcade games, Snake Plissken is the coolest name ever, The Wrestling Boot Band hurts our ears, a legitimate wrestle war, wrestling is "fake", and just what does RJ City think about Kayfabe in the year 2020?

We're also excited to welcome back Hysteria 51's Brent Hand! Being the gentleman that he is, Brent brought the very worst of June 1999 along with him. Brent's first opponent is coming off some tough defeats as of late, and he's armed with a plate of turd sandwiches from June 1976, it's Mancrush! But wait, there's more! Marc James is back to make this contest complete, with some disgusting, flat non-alcoholic beer from June 1983. Thanks, Marc!     When Jamie's not chilling at Usher's house, he likes to sit back, and reminisce about the days of old!

Welcome back to another episode of Dueling Decades! For the first time, the mighty 80s goes to war with the 70s, and the 60s! In order to go back that deep, we needed someone with a great deal of expertise, and we snagged the right guy for the job! This time around we brought in television star Butch Patrick of The Munsters! Eddie Munster himself steps behind the bench to adjudicate this wild "week experience" battle between 1966, 1977, and 1982! Butch is sharp as a tack, he's a literal encyclopedia of pop culture, and he's prepared to drop some knowledge on everyone. Marc drew May 8th through the 14th of 1966, Mancrush duels with the same week in 1977, and our third competitor this week is our pal Drew Zakmin who brings the best of May 9th through the 15th, 1982. There is so much packed into this episode! Butch shares lots of stories from the past, iconic performances, movies that lack explanation, lack of screens, a car developer to the stars, Butch's first concert with older women, douchebag record labels, a media mogul's first time, Cosby at Hugh's house, Rob Zombie's favorite show, wild coincidences, dudes on yachts, getting on MTV in the 80s, outrageous contracts, a new summer league emerges, not incestual lesbian sisters, a show comes to an end, another iconic show is canceled, Marc's weird album collection, Juice goes to college, and who partied in Butch's bus? That, and so much more! Do you agree with Butch's rulings? Play at home and judge for yourself!
