I start things off by honoring a fallen member of the Spider-Man creative team, Tom Lyle. Once I finally get my act together (no tears, just procrastination), what I thought was going to be a brief topic about Creed II turned into a whole dissection of the November 2018 sequel to the Ryan Coogler 2015 film. Viktor was robbed. This episode was brought to you by Song Association courtesy of Terrell Grice's YouTube channel.--- Support this podcast:
Very early when I created Hyphen Nation, I knew I wanted to talk about my love for The Devil Wears Prada. I think Marcus and I even talked about it way back on Episode #34. Almost 4 years later, I sat down with the newest member of the 5-Time Guest Club, Angel Conley. We give you a running commentary on this 2004 film starring Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, and Stanley Tucci from start to finish, so have your play button ready! Or just listen wherever.

I'm late! That's only because I wrapped this episode of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST roughly 12 hours ago, drove home to Morgantown, spent the evening with my family, and then started editing. I'm going to pass out as soon as I finish typing this. My father, Daniel Conley, returns to the show for the first time in 2 years! And we talk a whole lot of sports. The debate on which athletes are truly great is... well, debated. A lively discussion about professional wrestling is had. And we play a game where I name a professional athlete and Dad gives me the first things that come to mind. And I lost my podcast. It happens.

On this edition of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST, I may have had the greatest chicken sandwich of all time... but the verdict is still out. My first experience with the Popeye's spicy chicken sandwich is detailed. And I just fart around for the rest of the episode making animal sounds. All jokes aside, CM Punk is now a Fox Sports employee appearing on FS1's WWE Backstage. What does all this mean? I hash out the what ifs and if the Second City Saint will actually get back into the squared circle.

On this episode of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST:Previously on It's Like A Podcast Or Whatever: It's episode 96 on the road to 100 and it's a doozy. This time, Handsome Bane called in the Boss of the Hyphen Podcast Group, B. Hyphen himself along with his semi regular co-host and CFO of the HPG, THE Marc Rob(inson). The two of them have been tasked with the Herculean job of answering one question; Which album is better, Childish Gambino's "Because the Internet" or Kendrick Lamar's "Good Kid, Mad City". But rather than take each song from the two projects, they decide to take the top 5 MOMENTS from each and weigh them against one another. Will the music be all that matters? Or will sequencing, storyline or even marketing be the deciding factor? In the end, you will be asked to listen to each case and make a subjective and informed decision. Put your thinking caps on because it doubles as a swim cap as we take this deep dive into two albums that set the bar really high in the early 2010s.

As the Cleveland Browns wrapped up a win against their division rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night, all hell broke lose. Mason Rudolph didn't take too kindly to Myles Garrett's late game tackle after he had gotten rid of the ball, so he lashed out at the Browns' star DE. Garrett then ripped the QB's helmet off and when Rudolph continued to provoke him... Myles Garrett smashed the helmet into Rudolph's head. Within you'll hear my thoughts before the suspensions were announced.In other sports news, Carmelo Anthony has a job in the NBA again!

After a battle with depression and procrastination, THE WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST returns! As the anniversaries turn, so do the ages of two of my favorite projects, which just so happened to turn 25 this year. I spend the first half of the episode covering August 1994's II by Boyz II Men and then cap things off with an in-depth look at TLC's November 1994 opus, CrazySexyCool. This episode was brought to you by Pitch Perfect, interrupted lunches and segments, and Straw-Ber-Ritas. I regret nothing.--- Support this podcast:
So, look. The other day, Miles Amadeus Prower of A Podcast Called Fresh hits me and tells me he's gonna send me a clip of an all-new I, Black Man Podcast segment for THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST and I'm all for it. But I thought I would post it on Sunday's episode. I wake up to an email from Maps Wednesday morning with the segment but I already mixed down this episode. So again, I was looking at Sunday's episode. But somehow, some way, Maps' clip from IBMP is on this episode and I can't remove it. I don't know what happened.After Maps' segment, I talk about my participation in my first ever Extra Life gaming marathon for the Children's Miracle Network with some family and then I review Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil, which turns into a recap of the first Maleficent film. Those fairies who aren't Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather are the worst. This episode was brought you by Monstalung Soundvizion and Warriors @ Rockets.--- Support this podcast:
I went to bed after I finished recording Episode #129 with Lam and I woke up to the news that beloved actor and comedian John Witherspoon passed away at 77. So as THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST returns to just regular old me-centric episodes, I spend the first half of this episode eulogizing the man we affectionately knew as Pops. I then move on to an Oakland Raiders midseason report as my beloved football team is doing better than expected at the halfway point.

This episode contains the very last episode to complete the first ever event month here on THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREAT PODCAST, a little ditty I like to call GUEST MONTH. Nine episodes; eight guests, and returning for the 6th time, we have Michael Lamerique! Lam agreed to join me as we covered the film career of Kevin Smith, including (but not limited to): Clerks! Mallrats! Dogma! Clerks II! Zack and Miri Make A Porno! And other key films directed by Smith. But then, we also spent a ton of time talking about movies unrelated to Kevin Smith, Chris Rocks's film career, Justin Long's filmography, South Park, and oh yeah... Lam even broke y'all off with a Jesus Is King review. There is a few minutes of missing audio in the Kanye section; our apologies. This episode was brought to you by Community, Kobe on Ridiculousness, and this popcorn I'm about to make.Sidebar: Jay & Silent Bob Reboot is touring nationwide and is the driving force for this episode.

Journey with me to a cold February day 12 years ago, when I was home on Pennsylvania Avenue and my friend Ed Brown was still in visiting for the weekend. In this only episode of the Hyphen & Easy Podcast (or THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST, Hyphen Nation), Ed and I discuss the 2007 All-Star Saturday night festivities! What we did that weekend! Our thoughts after checking out Ghost Rider as well as how excited we were for some of the trailers that came before our main feature! We talk about the 2007 Daytona 500 as it was happening (sorry for the dip in audio quality here, my actual recording didn't have the full audio from this segment)! NFL 2007 offseason news and some college basketball! And then we finish with a little WWE talk! PLUS: Marcus Robinson made an impromptu appearance in Morgantown this past Sunday and against all odds, we (+ Anthony) recorded 8 minutes of audio fire at the local Sonic.

Without further delay, THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST returns! On this trip, I recruited my old friend from the corner of Lake Erie (or Buffalo, NY), Erik Fromme. We discuss how we met, how we both came into comic book fanfiction and our former sites Marvel & DC Anthology, Erik's time writing his character Anthony Drake, his idea for a Star Trek series, his contribution to our friend Derrick Ferguson's new book Dillon: The Odd Jobs, and wrap things up talking about NXT and the problems with WWE's main roster shows.

When I was younger, I was a part of a radio show on WVU's college radio station called the Urban Diner. During that time, I paired up with a gentleman and together, we created The Hyphen & Kwames Show, the most powerful, mythical, and awesome radio show that there ever was. Then, as suddenly as it started, my co-host Kwame Amponsem moved away, and I was alone. ANYWAY, after mentioning very early on when I started this podcast that I wanted to have Kwame as a guest, I FINALLY made it happen. We talked about how he ended up at U92, how he started playing the bass and how he's a well-traveled musician, we talked about our old radio show, and we rounded it all off with how he got into stand up comedy. I was pretty much a crying laughing emoji (but apparently the correct name of the emoji is the Face With Tears of Joy emoji) the whole time.

Fresh off a new episode of Browns In Our Blood, Anthony Sellers joins me on THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST to talk about El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie! Join us as we ride with Jesse Pinkman as his story picks up where the final episode of Breaking Bad ended. Spoilers galore, wild theories, a lot of reminiscing, and even though I'm not proud of it, we had to talk Jesse Plemons (he was fantastic in this movie).  This episode is brought to you by the Rick Ross episode of Pull Up and the return of Morgantown being Little Seattle.--- Support this podcast:
Very soon, the decade of the 2010s will be coming to an end. Almost lost without a MCU movie to cover, Marcus went into Thought Father mode and came up with a doozy of an episode. Each of us brought our 5 favorite music projects of the '10s to the table as well as 10 honorable mentions. My list stopped at 30 projects... Marcus was at 95 by the time we started recording this episode. Who has what where? Some of our choices may surprise you.

Let me tell you: there's nothing like booking a guest for THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST and picking out a time and a date... and then letting yourself forget all about it. Despite my best efforts, I was able to call in the host of HPG's Catch The Show and The Underground Monster, EG (that's @catcherofshows on the social meedz) to talk about the big night in professional wrestling this past Wednesday. And wouldn't you know it... EG caught the fricking show! So we spend a lot of time on All Elite Wrestling's debut show Dynamite and then do a quick recap on a pretty eventful episode of NXT.

So you know what else Jay-Z does besides make conspicuous deals with Roger Goodell and the NFL? He makes music! Well... he used to pretty regularly.

On this edition of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST, strange things are afoot! I had a close encounter of the bird kind while waking up over IG videos. After I recovered from that, I find out that Mario Kart Tour isn't just for iOS but it's available for #TeamAndroid people like myself! This leads to my Mario Kart origin story and why I never hesitate to call myself a Mario Kart KIng. To finish everything off, I tell the sad story of how I lost the Sega Genesis I was supposed to get for Christmas in 1994.

On this episode of the BARACK OBAMA WORLD’S GREATEST PODCAST, I’m announcing the Emmy winners… days late. Shut up, this was recorded on Monday. From there, I transition into a lengthy discussion about HΘMΣCΘMING losing out on all 6 of its nominations at the Creative Arts Emmys. And while all that Emmy talk is happening, I detail a strange series of events that was taking place inside of the parking lot I was located at. No one seems to care I'm recording the BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST. I live in WV though, maybe I should called it Donald approved?
