Episodes

  • X-Men, Killer Queen and Blizzard

    November 12th, 2019  |  36 mins 10 secs

    First and Foremost, Tom has premiered his new film, we want to submit it for Oscar Consideration. After all this, Tom tells us all about Killer Queen Black on the Switch, we talk a little bit about how awful China is (probably banned in China now) and how shitty Blizzard is which makes it hard to be excited about new games from. Jon then tells us how amazing the Jonathan Hickman run of X-men is.

  • Paul Rudd Math

    November 5th, 2019  |  34 mins 26 secs
    hbo, netflix, tv

    Do you call it a TV show even if its only ever streamed? is it a series? just a show? Does it matter? Oh we also talk about Paul Rudd in Living With Yourself, Watchmen, His Dark Materials and more

  • BSPC Classic: Anything for Batman

    October 30th, 2019  |  16 mins 6 secs

    We're sorry. Life has gotten the better of us all. We will be back with new episodes very soon but for now enjoy another deep cut featuring Jon: This week, the crew assembles to lightly talk video games, and then give you a very special episode 100. Thank you for everything and to everyone that has been listening, this has and will continue to be an amazing journey.

  • BSPC Classic: That Thing With The Sheet

    October 15th, 2019  |  36 mins 15 secs

  • Joy Cons for Humans

    October 8th, 2019  |  28 mins 1 sec

    Tom picked up some rad human sized Joy Cons for his switch, he tells you all about em! Should Hori make more?! Probably. Tyson and John finally got around to watching Carnival Row, do they agree with Tom? FIND OUT THIS WEEK!

  • Untitled Goose Game

    October 2nd, 2019  |  38 mins 44 secs

    Tom played Untitled Goose Game, it's wonderful and we love it, so we talk about it. THEEEEEEN, Tyson explains his love for Mario Kart World Tour.

  • Styx to Blasphemy

    September 24th, 2019  |  31 mins 35 secs

    Settle into the Grand Illusion that is this weeks episode. Tyson would really like to talk about Titans but the rest of us are Renegades, Babe. Come Sail away with us as we talk streaming services and the golden age of content. Tom has made Blasphemous his lady, its been rocking his paradise.

  • Gator Clips to Super Nintendo Adapter

    September 17th, 2019  |  30 mins 34 secs

    We're loving the SNES on Switch. Super Mario World is the best Mario game even though Tyson doesn't know the Secret Exits, but we really really want N64 on the Switch. At the end of the day though....Gene Simmons is a bastard.

  • Weezin'

    September 10th, 2019  |  29 mins 8 secs

    We have a fairly lengthy discussion about Weezer, like a longer than should have been discussion about Weezer. Eventually though, we talk Celeste, The Terror, and The Righteous Gemstones.

  • Ghostbustin' Rumors

    September 3rd, 2019  |  37 mins 12 secs
    fandom, geeks, ghostbusters, movies, rumors, television

    The A Team assembles this week. Rebecca, Lucas, and Tom talk about new Ghostbusters rumors, why fandoms should be better to each other, and you know, the usual nonsense ensues.

  • On-Demand Ass Poundings

    August 20th, 2019  |  15 mins 33 secs

    Everyone pounding these boys in the ass. Sleep study pounding them in the ass. Nerve study pounding them in the ass. Thomas at EVO pounding ass.

  • Spider-Man Begin Again

    August 13th, 2019  |  39 mins 25 secs
  • Dora, Hobbs, Shaw, Quentin & The Boys

    August 6th, 2019  |  41 mins 3 secs

    From Dora the Explorer to Rick Rubin and Johnny Cash in 12 minutes. Somehow we parlay that into The Boys and how Seth Rogen is somehow bringing us a ton of great television. You even get a little audio tour of Jon's Sanctum Supreme. It's pretty great.

  • The May Queen

    July 30th, 2019  |  19 mins 2 secs

    Have you ever had someone say to you, "Hey watch this video!" and you just really do not care. We do the verbal version of that to Tyson only with the movie Midsommar. We talk about the whole thing and he is mad about it the entire time.

  • Happy Birthday Jon

    July 23rd, 2019  |  24 mins 15 secs

    It's Jon's birthday and we all just put ourselves into a food coma. We decide to put him on the spot, one of his least favorite things, and make him tell us stories about previous birthdays. We also do Lucas' least favorite thing and refuse to let Jon finish his story in a timely manner. Oh, and Rebecca and Tom went and saw CRAWL, baby gators and lots of chomps.
