“We’re back! Unplugged! Well, we forgot mic cables, so we’re using an ambient stereo mic, but we missed you, so here you go.” -BPCP The Boys open the show telling you everything you never wanted to know about Tarmac. The Internet is trying to make us dumber. iTunes Reviews dovetail nicely into The New Zoo Review, Buster and Me, The Bloodhound Gang, Weekly Reader, 321 Contact, and Mathnet…all those learnin’ shows.  Whiskey Tasting Time! Old Forester 1870 Signature Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky is on the menu today. When did we decide that owls were smart? They work at night. You don't pull third shift because you're a genius. Timely TV review of Manimal (Which neither Steve Ausburne nor Casey Willams has seen) cross-over episodes with Night Man and Auto Man are discussed, then dream cross-overs of Manimal/CHiPs, Dukes of Hazzard/CHiPs, Knight Rider/CHiPs, basically anything and CHiPs although…GI Joe/Transformers would be awesome and way better than those crappy Michael Bay movies. Steve hasn’t seen Westworld and Casey hasn’t seen the movie so naturally they talk about both. They somehow make Passover funny and Mötley Crüe closes it out.  

So let it be written…

The Boys open the show with some timely Facts of Life talk which of course dovetails into Happy Days. The career of Ted McGinley is explored. Steve Ausburne nails a Wordsworth from Heathcliff impression. Casey Williams counters with a Fonzie. The first ever bad iTunes review is read. Whiskey Tasting Time! Big Bottom Small Batch Barlow Trail American Blended Whiskey is on the menu. Zippo tricks! Vaping would be so cool if it wasn’t for the people who vape, Mamba vs Now and Laters. Why it’s hard to talk about Scott Baio anymore. If you don’t stay tuned for Steve’s Rabbit Breeding story, you are a straight buster. Taco Bell used to be cheap, like spare change cheap. Like free cheap.

The Boys open the show confounded by how the Brits can’t seem to spell. Casey Williams dropped his son off at the mall to “hang out” which inspires a nostalgic trip to the mall from the 90’s. Aladdin’s Castle, Mrs. Fields, Copeland’s Sports, International Imports, and Hot Dog On A Stick are all remembered fondly. Whiskey tasting time! Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage 2008 is on the menu today. Remember Dirt clod fights in vacant lots? That’s what we need today. The NBA All Star Weekend Slam Dunk contest is broken down. Casey just got a DeLonghi Maestro Super Automatic Espresso Maker that changed his life. Don’t tune out because you’re going to want to here Steve Ausburne’s touching Nike Air Jordan story, as well as a trip down Saturday Morning PSA memory lane. From the Mormons, The Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints, Hanker for a hunka cheese, and remember, don’t drown your food, our teacher said to never tell a lie...

Even the small ones...

(NSFW) Live from SF Sketchfest with special guest Chad Opitz! The boys open the show with a shameless plea for a Goorin Brothers sponsorship. It just makes sense right? Casey Williams already doesn’t like the new ChiPs movie. A new darker, grittier ALF film is pitched. Steve Ausburne and Chad get into some video store classics. The career of Robert Picardo is explored. Whiskey tasting time! Four Roses Small Batch is on the menu today. Chad tells us about a party he went to at Yanni's vacation home. A timely movie review of Monster Squad. Tom Nunan is discussed. Fabulous prizes are given out. Clash of the Titans still holds up (Not the crappy new one) and Chad closes the whole thing out with an impassioned melodic plea to take Adele for burritos and tea.

The Boys open the show with some hot Knight Rider talk. KITT should have been a character on Mask. Casey Williams went to school with the son of Jack Blades from Night Ranger. Remember the Nintendo Game & Watch? Better voice actor: William Daniels or Peter Cullen? Whiskey Tasting Time! Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is on the menu today. Wild Turkey fans tune in! The classic film, “They Live” is re-imagined. The career of John Carpenter is explored. Steve does a timely review of Splash starring Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah. There’s also a preview of a future episode dedicated entirely to Punny Porn Names.

Links on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless, in a world of criminals who operate above the law...

Jan 19, 2017

The Boys open the show with a discussion about correcting people when they mispronounce your name. This is mostly because Casey Williams accidentally mispronounced Steve Ausburne's name at the top of the show and tried to make it sound like it was intentional. Or was it?  A lengthy Social Media discussion ensues. Donald Trump is discussed without making it political somehow. There's talk of Amazon and iTunes Reviews, why? Because we want some! Review us on iTunes. Whiskey Tasting Time! Waitsburg Bourbon Whiskey from OOLA Distillery in Washington is on the menu today. Noah’s Ark is actually a pretty horrific story. Did you watch M*A*S*H? Neither did Steve or Casey! Wanna hear two 40 year old dudes talk about skateboarding & video games? Then this is the podcast for you! A timely review of Lethal Weapon 2 wraps up the show.

Jan 8, 2017

The Boys open the show with some timely Perfect Strangers discussion Casey Williams gets heightsick (New Word!) What are we going to do with Star Wars now that Carrie Fisher is gone? The ending of Lost is spoiled. Whiskey Tasting Time! Steve Ausburne breaks out some Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve  15yr and a whole lot of Garth Brooks. This leads to a whole Country Music discussion that probably goes on too long, but hey! Charlie Daniels! New Year's Eve is recapped, and there's some talk about watches for no reason at all.

I'm just an ol' podcast junkie...
