    Podcast of the Living ... Dead?

    In this episode, the Guys have an especially scary treat in store for you. And no, it's not that Jay is once again MIA.
    Geeks of the Week include news about Spiderman 3, Wonder Woman 84, Lord of the Rings, The Expanse, and of course, Captain Janeway.
    And then...get ready. Robbie and Art are here to chew bubble gum and .... talk scary movies, and they're all out of bubble gum.
    The Guys are joined by horror movie aficionado, Brittany "the Boss" Goss, who shares her favorite horror movies and thoughts on just what makes a good scary flick. Robbie and Art share some of their favorites as well, so check it out and see if we're frighteningly close or off in some phantom dimension when it comes to your own selections.

    EXTRA: Jay Strikes Back...with croissants

    EXTRA: Jay Strikes Back...with croissants

    The Jayster takes over the studio and dives into one of his passions- food.  Specifically how to prepare and cook it.
    Jay’s geek-dom when it comes to all things food is fully manifested in an interview with T.J. Manna, a local baker-cook-pastry chef: in other words, a full-on food nerd.  
    They talk baking of all sorts, with a special focus on how many days it takes to make a croissant.  A real one, anyway.  Join us for this special episode in the Jay Culinary Multiverse (TM), and be sure to stick around for the speed round.

    Party On! 80's Movies Forever

    Party On! 80's Movies Forever

    Back in the 80’s, when Guys (and Gals) of a Certain Age were being molded and shaped for the future (i.e., NOW), did you ever watch a movie and think, “This is just like my life.”  
    You know, movies like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Mystic Pizza, or War Games?  Maybe not.  Maybe we just wished they were.  Meanwhile, we aged, the actors aged, and now we are left to wonder (perhaps because the Guys have too much time to think), where would those characters be now?  Are the Goonies still friends?  Did they spend all their treasure in one place?  
    Sometimes we get to find out…or we will when theaters fully reopen…with Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Cobra Kai, Top Gun: Maverick, and most importantly, Bill & Ted Face the Music.  
    This week Jay and Art imagine what life might look like for the folks from St. Elmo’s Fire and the Princess Bride, and Robbie…well, Robbie didn’t quite get the memo, but has lots to say about Mad Men.  And since it’s his studio, they let him.

    Give Me That Old Time...Radio?

    Give Me That Old Time...Radio?

    Once again the Guys are without Jay for this podcast. Rumor has it, he's auditioning for a podcast musical.
    Robbie and Art soldier on without him, dispensing Geeks of the Week knowledge on the new WandaVision trailer, a possible Spinal Tap sequel, and an old CRT television set that wipes out WiFi in Wales — or at least a small village there.
    The second half finds the Guys going back to a time before CRT television to the Golden Age of radio dramas, with Art mentioning some of his favorite series and shows in a well-researched segment that may or may not have been decided on moments before the mics went live. 
     
    There's no special decoder ring for listening, fellows and girls, but tune in all the same.

    Triumph of a Nerd (Science Fair)

    Triumph of a Nerd (Science Fair)

    If the Guys ever showed their full geek status, it's in this episode all about science fairs. 
    Art converts wine to wind, Jay gets back to nature with a side of gas, but Robbie - Robbie took science fairs seriously. He may not have been cool, but his project definitely was. He started in third grade and truth be told, is probably still working on it. 
    Geeks of the Week range from Pod-Way musicals, a table read with a blast from the past, and at last we find out who will play She-Hulk. And that's a relief: one day they may need a good green lawyer.  Break out that volcano in your attic and reminisce with the Guys.

    In a Podcast...Movie Trailers

    In a Podcast...Movie Trailers

    In a world where Guys of a Certain age are free to record podcasts on any topic they choose, 2 out of 3 guys choose to talk...movie trailers.
    The non-stop action begins with a Geek of the Week segment that finds Art and Robbie remembering the late Diana Riggs of the Avengers (the other ones) and looking forward to the upcoming Disney series, Kenobi.
    The roller coaster thrill ride continues with a look a the new Dune trailer, a history of trailers, and personal recollections of memorable trailers. You won't want to miss this episode, coming soon (well, now) to your favorite podcast platform.

Good stuff

A solid podcast with just the right amount of tech talk, good stories, and commentary. Your podcast was recommended by Phil Valentine on his podcast.

Face for radio

You all definitely have voices for radio! What a fun podcast. Great to walk down memory lane with y’all.

I can relate

There's so much here that hits home for me. I love the stroll down Memory Lane. I don't think they've talked about it yet, but I wonder if these guys had Sunrise Theater on their local TV station. It was horror movies early on Saturday mornings. Cut my teeth on some of the classic horror flicks.
