It's the first garagecast, with Ted banished to his garage for the duration of the show. As we meander through a discussion of current events and sitting through long movies, Darin realizes that his movie viewing habits are evolving as he ages. We also revisit recent events in The Walking Dead and Black Mirror, and discuss Trending Topic, In Memoriam and Weird Science segments. Finally, a farewell to Darin's dead car and mini stories by Ted!
This episode is the post-Avengers:Endgame episode, with a brief spoiler-free review, and a discussion of Darin's attempts to avoid spoilers and the resulting bet between the hosts. We also cover evolving opinions regarding useless celebrities, and have In Memoriam and Asian Domination segments. Plus, the brand new Follow-Up segment includes a discussion of the recent Sri Lankan bombings and talk of sacrifice for the greater good. If all that wasn't enough, we close the show with dueling stories of Darin's trip to Disney and Ted's trip to Fort Lauderdale.
Recorded before the release of the Mueller report, this episode has the hosts discussing the Attorney General's 4-page non-summary. But while everyone is now talking about the redacted Mueller report, we discuss the secret unredacted version! Also, Darin recounts his recent and not-so-recent trips to the smoky mountains of Tennessee, and we test out our new temporary Listener Prime! Plus, Trending Topic, In Memoriam and Weird Science segments, and a vasectomy update Did we mention the glitter?
Amidst an ongoing show-related crisis, this episode includes a discussion of movie and TV topics, including the decline of the new Golden Age of TV and Fox News viewers. Plus, we introduce a new Trending Topic segment to shamelessly attract new listeners, and Ted closes things out with a story of a difficult train ride.
Back after a 2 month hiatus, it's our long-awaited recap of news from 2018! Plus, we catch up on current events in our lives, including Ted's strange illness and Darin's encounter with a unique food item. Also, a little cemetery humor!
It's our long-delayed post-election episode, recorded in late November but unpublished until now due to circumstances beyond our control. We also explore our respective Thanksgiving adventures in New Jersey and at EPCOT, and have In Memoriam, Weird Science, and Asian Domination segments. We wrap things up with a report on Ted's vasectomy.
It's right before Halloween, and we briefly take a serious tone as we try to get our heads around all of the mass shootings, but quickly return to the comedy for our new Asian Domination segment. We close things out with a long discussion of cleaning an ailing mother-in-law's house, which leads to a joke repeat, as well as our new Manilow Rants segment.
In this episode, we discuss the Kavanaugh chaos and Ted's washing machine woes, and Darin has a mid-podcast snack. Plus, a Baby Update, an historical In Memoriam, and a clip from the Bush Country podcast.
Episode 22: Two K's are OK

This episode has Darin's long-delayed review of The Orville, plus a hilarious recounting of Ted's trip to Ocean City, MD. Also, Lightning Round, In Memoriam, and Tin Foil Hat segments. Most significantly, embarrassing details emerge from secret recordings of the hosts.
Back from an extended paternity leave, we discuss Darin's boycott of the Miami Dolphins, as well as Ted's pending vasectomy. We introduce the Weird Science segment via a discussion of beef jerky mania, and have a lively In Memoriam debate. We close things out with childbirth stories!

I was going to suggest using something like Discord to have a more seamless chat and possible record and include your listener(s). However, maybe something like this would allow you to both stream/record/and include a future fan base: https://obsproject.com/

Another comment; since you record and post at different days/times, please say the date and time of the recording at the beginning so the listener can put some context in mind about your conversations vs when it was recorded/posted.

I forget what the question was to me about commenting; but I think i don't understand how this works; you keep saying "on air". I was under the impression you were not "on the air" and you were recording this then posting it. I think i side with Darin on this...discuss it on the air and / or on the comments. I'm down with all immersive. Sorry Ted...POINT for Darin.

In Switzerland all males are required to own and be trained on rifles. They don't have the problems we have. It's not guns, it's lack of training and stricter laws. Getting rid of guns is the wrong idea.

The second amendment is not antiquated; as a staunch Democrat, and seeing the shit heap we are in now, we should all have guns...the two things Democrats are stupid about are 1)guns and 2)vaccinations. The local police departments would not use their own force against their communities. There are closer ties between them. People are linked more closely in communities. Even if that did happen, there are more guns and people in towns and cities than ALL the cops. Democrats need to lay off the banning of guns. Heavier laws to obtain, sure.

LOL lots of comments here LOL...first, as you know i have been listening to this as I'm falling asleep for the night; and at some point in this one, someone banged on the table or something...it sounded like someone knocking at my door...so i got up half asleep and grabbed my gun to answer my door...it wasn't until i went back and listened again, that i figure out one of you woke me up

Ok, so I've been listening to these before I go to sleep and falling asleep about an hour into a show. I started listening to Episode 20 then fell asleep sometime thereafter. I was woken up to the sound of Ted moaning; Being woken up to the beginning of this one, Ted moaning, is deeply disturbing.

Richard Mitosis I trust you are replaying the episode to hear the parts you missed after falling asleep. We usually end the show with a funny story.
