    Episode 237: 2020 Prediction Party

    Whether you call it clairvoyance, fortune telling, or ESPN, Baconsale is peering deep into the upcoming year and predicting pop culture occurrences for 2020. Jacob has a pretty bleak outlook of the future—and things do get a little dark as we talk about untimely demises, filthy dragons, and the blood of innocents—but Kent and Joel also prognosticate about healthy fast food options, TV show reboots and THREE TYPES of sporting events (#ChiefLife)! Plus, we end the episode talking about films we want to flop and our most anticipated movies of the year.
    The relative position of the planets and the stars indicate that you should press play.

    BaconBit: Bad Boys for Life Review

    BaconBit: Bad Boys for Life Review

    Woo! It’s been 17 years since the last Bad Boys movie, but without Michael Bay at the helm, will Bad Boys for Life still feel the same? Kent has seen the movie and is ready to tell us all about it. There won’t be any spoilers, but Kent will let us know why he’s unhappy with the name (Joel will try and come up with a better one), and we’ll also look at how these three movies have done at the box office and with audiences.

    Ride or die, it’s time for a BaconBit review! Woo!

    Episode 236: Best & Worst Movies of 2019-ish

    We’re back, baby! And we’re starting our sixth season of Baconsale with a recap of our favorite films of the past year. Kent selects movies that were released in 2019 and Joel picks ones he watched for the first time in 2019. Along the way, we find out what makes Kent smile (HINT: it has something to do with alligators), we discover that Joel can’t do a North Korean accent, and we learn how many cough drops Jacob can consume in a single episode.

    BaconBit: The Rise of Skywalker & Cats Review

    BaconBit: The Rise of Skywalker & Cats Review

    Memory, all alone in the dark side. I can dream of the old films. They were beautiful then. I remember the time I knew what Skywalkers were. Will the saga live again? Our season may have ended, but we couldn’t leave you hanging when two of the most anticipated movies of the year were released. So, on this BaconBit, Kent & Joel are going to review both Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker and Cats. We watched them on the same day, so comparisons are inevitable. But will this final chapter in the sequel right the wrongs Baconsale found in The Last Jedi? And will we ever figure out what “Jellicle” means? Press play to find out.

    And don’t worry, the first part of this BaconBit is spoiler-free, so even if you haven’t seen either movie, you can still listen!

    Episode 235: Season Five for Fighting

    Episode 235: Season Five for Fighting

    After an entire year of talking about pop culture topics, it’s time for Baconsale to talk about talking about pop culture topics. We’re looking back at the past season and giving you behind-the-scenes peeks into how this podcast is made. Topics include how Kent makes cover art (more nostril!), tournament matches we regret, learning to play Dungeons & Dragons, recording with Weezer, the surprise popularity of soda pop, and why pumpkin spice stressed Jacob out and almost killed Joel. And while Kent, Joel, and Jacob may not agree on their choices, we do all agree that we’re grateful for you, the listener.
    Press play to hear how we wrap up the fifth season of Baconsale!

    BaconBit: Decade Dance—Christmas Edition

    BaconBit: Decade Dance—Christmas Edition

    It’s beginning to look a lot like a decade dance! Baconsale has already looked at horror films, action flicks, comedies, and dramas made in the past 10 years, but now it’s time for us to briefly talk about whether or not any good Christmas movies were released between 2010 and 2019. Kent and Joel have picked their top three and they’re ready to (kind of) recommend them to you. However, we also invoke the name of an ancient evil…one that we haven’t spoken of for a long, long time.

    Press play to get into the holiday spirit with Baconsale!

Great guys

Great guys and a great podcast. I’m not a member of the “geek culture”, but I love the humor and am always thoroughly entertained.

Such a fun listen

Whether you agree with them or not, listening to these three give their take on various pop culture topics should be part of your weekly ritual. Who would ever think that rating French fries or cereal would be so entertaining? I love that they clearly put a lot of time and preparation into each episode. It isn’t just an hour of random chatting. They have done work and research and the show is better because of it. You will surely learn something new from every show. It might be something that you never really cared to know, but it will definitely be an “ah ha” experience.

Fun for the whole family (friendly)
