Description

Two idiots and their much more intelligent guests take on classic TV (mostly the Andy Griffith Show) to see the weird messages they broadcast into American homes, and assess what holds up and what caused permanent damage to the psyche of an entire generation.

Join hosts Marty Schneider and Dan Ludwig as they descend into the madness of Boomer television, and occasionally break down their own childhood television addictions.

New episodes bi-weekly on Thursday mornings!

So listen, you're probably gonna want to read this before listening: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_AristocratsAnd uhhhhhh otherwise, I think we're good. Good times. See you next episode everyone.
Welcome to our mid-season break, kinda. We're spending half the episode discussing a truly bizarre news piece about Mt. Airy, NC, and then the other half talking about an episode I've already forgotten. Also we go in hard on those punks at NPR. About time someone put them in their place.Watch the CBS News segment on Mt Airy here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZme-GsKv_gMarty on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SchneidRemarksDan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/theluddsSUPPORT BREAKING MAYBERRY ON PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/breakingmayberryMusic by Max Ludwig: twitter.com/sleeptalkyFollow Breaking Mayberry on Twitter: twitter.com/BreakMayberry, Facebook facebook.com/BreakingMayberry or email us at breakingmayberry@gmail.com
Dating and relationship expert Harris "Dr. Nerdlove" O'Malley stops by to watch this awful My-Fair-Lady-pastiche redeeming one of Mayberry's most unredeemable characters - Ernest T. Bass.Marty asks important questions, Harris tries to answer them, and Dan explains why the Vietnam war was a great time to be an old dirtbag.More of Dr. Nerdlove: https://www.doctornerdlove.com/Marty on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SchneidRemarksDan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/theluddsSUPPORT BREAKING MAYBERRY ON PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/breakingmayberryMusic by Max Ludwig: twitter.com/sleeptalkyFollow Breaking Mayberry on Twitter: twitter.com/BreakMayberry, Facebook facebook.com/BreakingMayberry or email us at breakingmayberry@gmail.com
Okay, yeah, we've seen enough here, John Whedon suuuuuuuuuccccckkks. And also, surprise surprise, isn't a very good writer! As in, can't write in character and can't stay consistent for an entire episode! We hate him! He's the worst!Also in this episode: Marty is comically mistaken for someone else (again), Dan explains AG's descent into authority-loving, and Sheriff Andy Taylor makes a man fully homeless for... basically no reason! This show is full of sociopaths!Marty on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SchneidRemarksDan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/theluddsSUPPORT BREAKING MAYBERRY ON PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/breakingmayberryMusic by Max Ludwig: twitter.com/sleeptalkyFollow Breaking Mayberry on Twitter: twitter.com/BreakMayberry, Facebook facebook.com/BreakingMayberry or email us at breakingmayberry@gmail.com
Honestly, for a show hosted by two dudes, we really don't make that many dick jokes, right? Well, that's gonna change!But beyond the ball jokes, we're also talking about Season 04, Episode 05, "Barney's Side Car" which is one of the most ridiculously militaristic/fascist scenes ever put to television, to the point where it accidentally becomes a good abolitionist argument. Things gets wild in this one, we won't lie.Marty on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SchneidRemarksDan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/theluddsSUPPORT BREAKING MAYBERRY ON PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/breakingmayberryMusic by Max Ludwig: twitter.com/sleeptalkyFollow Breaking Mayberry on Twitter: twitter.com/BreakMayberry, Facebook facebook.com/BreakingMayberry or email us at breakingmayberry@gmail.com
Pretty sure Sheriff Andy Taylor doesn't actually even like his kid and literally doesn't care if his son knows he's alive. It's a pair of absolutely demented episodes this week, where we encounter a mine rescue that could only have gone worse if Elon Musk had been alive, and learn that Andy can be a great Dad... to other children.Also, Dan reaches out into the paranormal, Marty makes life moves, and we bring back everyone's favorite and most accessible bit - Writing Critic Batman!Marty on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SchneidRemarksDan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/theluddsSUPPORT BREAKING MAYBERRY ON PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/breakingmayberryMusic by Max Ludwig: twitter.com/sleeptalkyFollow Breaking Mayberry on Twitter: twitter.com/BreakMayberry, Facebook facebook.com/BreakingMayberry or email us at breakingmayberry@gmail.com
This episode of Andy Griffith is like a shitty version of The Ring: It doesn't kill you if you watch it, it just makes you a slightly worse person.Grant from Chip & Ironicus (and other things) stops by to stare into a half-hour of pure evit with us.

We finally did it, we finally went full Marxist on the Andy Griffith Show. We didn't MEAN to do it but it was bound to happen eventually. Also in this episode, Marty is an unwilling participant in childhood trauma, and everyone sadly waves to a bunch of money.Marty on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SchneidRemarksDan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/theluddsSUPPORT BREAKING MAYBERRY ON PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/breakingmayberryMusic by Max Ludwig: twitter.com/sleeptalkyFollow Breaking Mayberry on Twitter: twitter.com/BreakMayberry, Facebook facebook.com/BreakingMayberry or email us at breakingmayberry@gmail.com
Look, everything happens so damn much all the the time these days. I mean, we talk about goddamn Shrimp Guy in this episode and like, you don't care about Shrimp Guy anymore. That was barely a blip on the cultural landscape. But when we recorded this, that was relevant.In this episode, we meet the Darlings again. And also Darkseid. Marty sings in this one. Kidnapping is shown to be not a big deal. I'm so tired.Marty on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SchneidRemarksDan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/theluddsSUPPORT BREAKING MAYBERRY ON PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/breakingmayberryMusic by Max Ludwig: twitter.com/sleeptalkyFollow Breaking Mayberry on Twitter: twitter.com/BreakMayberry, Facebook facebook.com/BreakingMayberry or email us at breakingmayberry@gmail.com
The Ghouls Next Door make an appearance to talk about monsters, houses, and Monster House. We dissect the haunted urban legends of our childhood, find the manliest men we can, and Marty fails miserably to get a single question asked.Also we talk about Andy Griffith Show Season 4, Episode 5 "The Haunted House"Listen to Gabe and Kat at: https://www.theghoulsnextdoor.com/Marty on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SchneidRemarksDan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/theluddsSUPPORT BREAKING MAYBERRY ON PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/breakingmayberryMusic by Max Ludwig: twitter.com/sleeptalkyFollow Breaking Mayberry on Twitter: twitter.com/BreakMayberry, Facebook facebook.com/BreakingMayberry or email us at breakingmayberry@gmail.com
Listen, Ernest T. Bass is back and that means this is all just.... chaos. And where there isn't chaos, there's... basically the opposite of television. Dan plans a ghost movie and Marty writes a supervillain origin.Season 02, Episode 3 "Ernest T Bass Joins the Military" and Episode 4 "The Sermon For Today."

It's an extremely bird-heavy Season Premiere as we talk about "Opie The Birdman", one of the most influential and critically acclaimed episodes of TV ever made!...So of course we spend most of our time talking about Pierce Brosnan, Winnie-the-Pooh, and airsoft guns instead.It's good to be back with Season 04, Episode 01, "Opie the Birdman" (and also The Simpsons Season 10 Episode 03 "Bart the Mother" and The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh Season 01 Episode 04 "Find Her, Keep Her.")Marty on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SchneidRemarksDan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/theluddsSUPPORT BREAKING MAYBERRY ON PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/breakingmayberryMusic by Max Ludwig: twitter.com/sleeptalkyFollow Breaking Mayberry on Twitter: twitter.com/BreakMayberry, Facebook facebook.com/BreakingMayberry or email us at breakingmayberry@gmail.com
Scenes from an upcoming, extremely bird-heavy episode of Breaking Mayberry.
Death wears an ascot in our Season 3 finale as Andy Griffith play not one, but two different rich sociopaths! Marty and Dan accidentally stumble across a pair of 1974 made-for-TV movies featuring Andy Griffith as a snarling killer.Join us as we meet a disillusioned former child evangelist, have sympathy for meme stars, watch 90's basic-cable ads, and read through psychotic-killer Andy's high school journals.It's "Pray For the Wildcats" and "Savages"!
To be clear, this episode is 100---- er, 99% original material, it just might seem... familiar.But listen, enough about the Andy Griffith Show, have you ever seen the movie HEAT?(Here's the Libertarians-get-attacked-by-bears article Marty talks about: https://newrepublic.com/article/159662/libertarian-walks-into-bear-book-review-free-town-project)Marty on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SchneidRemarksDan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/theluddsSUPPORT BREAKING MAYBERRY ON PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/breakingmayberryMusic by Max Ludwig: twitter.com/sleeptalkyFollow Breaking Mayberry on Twitter: twitter.com/BreakMayberry, Facebook facebook.com/BreakingMayberry or email us at breakingmayberry@gmail.com
The angriest Marty has been at The Andy Griffith Show, and the Andy Griffith Show fandom, in a very long time. Meet Ernest T. Bass, the most disgusting fucking TV character known to man.Marty on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SchneidRemarksDan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/theluddsSUPPORT BREAKING MAYBERRY ON PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/breakingmayberryMusic by Max Ludwig: twitter.com/sleeptalkyFollow Breaking Mayberry on Twitter: twitter.com/BreakMayberry, Facebook facebook.com/BreakingMayberry or email us at breakingmayberry@gmail.com
I hope you like the episodes where we just talk about weird Philadelphia shit, because it takes us a full 20 minutes to get to the Andy Griffith Show in this one, and when we do, we get distracted almost immediately!In this episode, we meet Vent Guy, eulogize 300 reindeer, and take a strong stance on the subject of dogs being struck by lightning: We're against it.Marty on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SchneidRemarksDan on Twitter: https://twitter.com/theluddsSUPPORT BREAKING MAYBERRY ON PATREON: https://www.patreon.com/breakingmayberryMusic by Max Ludwig: twitter.com/sleeptalkyFollow Breaking Mayberry on Twitter: twitter.com/BreakMayberry, Facebook facebook.com/BreakingMayberry or email us at breakingmayberry@gmail.com
