    Episode 75 – Cuz My Beeper Kept Beepin’

    Episode 75 – Cuz My Beeper Kept Beepin’

    Looking for good writing in a Dan Brown book is a lot like looking for a sock in a bedroom the size of Texas while sewage spews forth out of a crystal decanter. And this section of DIGITAL FORTRESS is no exception. As the book theoretically reaches the stage where it will have a point, … Continue reading "Episode 75 – Cuz My Beeper Kept Beepin’"

    Episode 74 – Chapters! We Got Yer Chapters!

    Episode 74 – Chapters! We Got Yer Chapters!

    Victor Hugo just texted Dan Brown, “Dude, back it down on the chapters, man! It’s not a contest.” Tolstoy throws in a, “Yeah, cut it out, man.” Yes, the sparse words continue to spill out on the increasing number of pages of Dan Brown’s “Digital Fortress” so Conor and Mike can only counter it with … Continue reading "Episode 74 – Chapters! We Got Yer Chapters!"

    Episode 73 – Enter Halite

    Episode 73 – Enter Halite

    This episode begins with the introduction of possibly the greatest character in the history of the podcast (apologies to Bleriana, Jack Star, and the Robot Pimp) Greg Hale. He enters like a bull, in all his ogling, olive oil swigging, convicted murderer glory. From there we’ll move on to international intrigue, tired stereotypes, Idiot Switch … Continue reading "Episode 73 – Enter Halite"

    Ep 72 – Bobby Digital in Stereo

    Man, so much to talk about and so so much is talked about!!* Highlights: A withered naked old woman struggles with a bedpan. The smell of urine is in the air. Are the two things connected? You’ll have to listen to find out. All of our heroes (or are they heroes [SFX tension sting]?) chuckle … Continue reading "Ep 72 – Bobby Digital in Stereo"

    Ep 71 – If “Bizarre Foods” Went Horny

    Ep 71 – If “Bizarre Foods” Went Horny

    A straightforward Dan Brown thriller, if by straightforward you mean vastly underpaid Georgetown professors sticking their heads into drinking fountains and forcing their strange dietary habits on unwitting squash partners. We also hear from some experts on language and cryptography (and general human behavior, for that matter) about the many many things Mr. Brown gets … Continue reading "Ep 71 – If “Bizarre Foods” Went Horny"

oootts ,

The podcast that will be known as the battle of 372 pages.

I somehow find myself driving my car; this particular car has four wheels with black tires; and laughing uncontrollably at this classic podcast. I grin from ear to ear while exchanging insults with the person in the car next to me.. oh a squirrel. Then I pull out the toy robot from my pocket and throw it onto the ground and yell out a spell in Japanese, but the toy breaks into 372 pieces, like a book I recently read, that book had 372 pages and it was a book.

Awesome podcast guys!! Well done. I hope cline writes more so that you guys keep going. See you on the flipped flip.
