  • 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.

  • E3 2019 and Harry Potter Go

    July 1st, 2019  |  36 mins 23 secs

    Tom is super duper not into Harry Potter Go, Tyson however is all about it. He loves it so much. Nintendo had the best E3 conference of the whole show. Tom used to not even like Nintendo! Jon doesn't care about anything that isn't Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3. Also, where you at Rocksteady?

  • Bandwidth Caps

    June 25th, 2019  |  29 mins 26 secs

    Tyson got depressed watching Chernobyl (weird right???) but that c**ksucker loved Deadwood. While Rebecca loved Black Mirror the rest of us were pretty much not into it. Also Nick doesn't pirate things because BANDWIDTH!!! Dont you touch that wifi!

  • Google Effing Stadia

    June 18th, 2019  |  36 mins 51 secs
