In this episode we cover all the latest impeachment news, and we make predictions about future presidential scandals in an effort to keep up with the insane news cycle. Also, we propose creative ways for Dolphins fans to stay interested in the midst of a tanking NFL season. Plus, we're overflowing with segments this episode, including Asian Domination, Sad Science, Discontinued Foods, In Memoriam, Pod Post, and the Trending Topic! Finally, stories about a trip to Disney's Galaxy's Edge and culinary pioneering!
Recorded at the end of August and delayed due to illness, this episode features a discussion of Spider-Man leaving the MCU and other news from Disney's D23 Expo. There's also a current events lightning round that leads into Darin's tirades regarding the Lawrence O'Donnell retraction scandal and James Comey's election involvement. Plus, In Memoriam and Sad Science segments, and we end with an extended Treding Topic related to Hurricane Dorian.
This post-Mueller-testimony episode begins with a discussion of the "disgusting rat-infested mess" known as Maryland's 7th district, AKA where Ted lives, and then meanders through discussions of white privilege and presidential racism. Also, a story about the BRAT diet takes a dark turn, we check online to see if Darin was a victim of the Equifax data breach, and we highlight a wedding that Darin and Ted both attended. Plus, a long In Memoriam segment, along with the new Awkward Celebrity Encounter segment. We end with a quick story about driving with a sleeping child, and a super-fast Trending Topic segment.
From the Democratic debates to the border crisis, politics take center stage in this episode! We also discuss the major SCOTUS rulings, leading to a radical proposal to reshape the electoral map. Plus, In Memoriam and Trending Topic segments, and lots of stories about trips to the movies intertwined throughout the episode. Finally, we close with Darin's strange car noise and Ted's preparation for a weekend by himself.
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.

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.
