When two people come together, be it as friends, lovers or family, we all have different things we find enjoyment in. Often times, these things that bring us joy can keep us separate as well. In the spirit on inclusiveness, Rachel and Nate share their pop-culture interests and discuss them in a podcast format for your enjoyment! Hopefully, we’ll all come away with a better understanding of both the THINGS and the PEOPLE we love!
The Final Episode
Well, folks, this is it. We had a long ride, but the end of the road rapidly approaches. In this episode, we talk some about The Mandalorian and Star Trek Discovery. Aside from that, we just chat. This is our final episode of the Playing Hooky Podcast. We appreciate everyone who listened, gave feedback, and shared our episodes. We’ll still be around on Two D Ten. In the meantime, thanks for listening and we’ll talk to you later.
Akira New Years
Hello all! We’re bringing you a special New Years’ episode of Playing Hooky just to share in the love. In this episode, we chat about a movie that neither of us had seen, Akira! Check it out and enjoy the podcast. Let us know what other classic anime we should check out.
A Christmas Carol and Lethal Weapon
Hey all! Happy holidays, whatever you celebrate. This week, we took a look at two Christmas movies - A Christmas Carol from 1951 and Lethal Weapon. Is that a Christmas movie? I say YES. We are also a little bit more surly and angry in this episode, so I hope nobody is too incredibly offended. Take it with a grain of salt and enjoy your days; however you choose.
This week, we sat down to talk about Battletech. Our buddy, Fang, sent us a Bottleneck box with full rules, mechs, fiction, and more. Check it out, and let us know if you’ve ever played Mech Warrior, Battletech, or any other miniature war game.
Street Trash & Monsters Inc.
Happy Thanksgiving, all. We hope you’re well. We are a day (and a night) late due to the holiday, but we’re here all the same. This week, we were unable to review our original two films, Dutch & The Crucible, because Dutch is impossible to find. Instead, we watched Street Trash and Monsters Inc. Don’t worry, it’s totally the same thing.
Episode 48 - Cycle of the Werewolf & The Giver
Hey, all you fantastic human-type people! Life is pretty wild right now, so you should take a break and listen to a podcast. Luckily, that’s what this is! Rachel and Nate did some reading this episode and got together to talk about the books! Plus, there’s ranting in this episode, too!
In case the title didn’t give it away, we read Cycle of the Werewolf by Stephen King and The Giver by Lois Lowry.
Cycle of the Werewolf follows the cycle of the moon and the werewolf who kills under it. The Giver is a story set in a Utopian/Dystopian future!
