    E081: 2020 Holiday Interruptiganza!

    Happy Everything and join us for two tales in this special holiday episode! First, we travel to the convert the wild pagans away from the evil lure of Thor (but those abs!) in "A Legend of Saint Boniface". Then, it's a trip to jolly old England for the Dickensian "A Christmas Fairy". Whether it contains fairies is questionable, whether you will hear a parade of dodgy accents is not! Be excellent to each other and have a happy new year!

    E079: The Dude Ranch

    E079: The Dude Ranch

    Pack up your cowboy hat and your best beans, we're heading to "The Dude Ranch"! Straight from a 1936 issue of Western Story Magazine comes a tale of- well, more like an advice column of thrills, packing tips, and a surprising level of detail about the dark, damp secrets of Hidden Valley Ranch. Bring the kids!
    This episode includes a promo for The Story Song Podcast, an excellent listen that everyone should subscribe to. Every episode they discuss a different narrative song, like "Jolene" by Dolly Parton or "Regulate" by Warren G. featuring Nate Dogg (two personal faves), in all its glory.

    E078: The Whispering Ether

    E078: The Whispering Ether

    What is "The Whispering Ether"? Is it a goth zine from the 90s? Is it the name of the letter column of a goth zine from the 90s? No, it's the creation of a mad scientist )who is much better at monologuing than scientisting) that allows him to read the minds of at least two people: A safecracker sent to steal his secrets and the leader of a European country to be named later. From the June, 1926 issue of Amazing Stories comes a tale of super-science that will astound you! Plus we discuss ghosts, Marconi, Tik Tok celebs, pirates, man parts, radio parts, buffoonery, charcuterie, cartoonery, and much, much more.

    E077: Like a Stick

    E077: Like a Stick

    In this episode we peruse the pulse-pounding pugilistic parable "Like a Stick"! Punched straight from the Fall, 1949 issue of Fight Stories magazine (motto: "Our Name is a Spoiler for our Stories!"), "Like a Stick" is the tale of an unlikely prizefighter with an even unlikelier physique. That's right: He's really a kangaroo! Okay, he's just skinny, sigh...

    E076: Terran Treachery Trips Luna LIVE!

    E076: Terran Treachery Trips Luna LIVE!

    Recorded live at the 2020 Livestream for the Cure charity podcasting marathon, it's "Terran Treachery Trips Luna" from the January, 1952 issue of Fantastic Adventures magazine! This almost alliterative tale of lunar diamond madness has spacesuits and flare guns and wagons with tongues and proves the moon truly is a harsh mistress (but not the fun kind).
    NOTE ON SOUND: This was a live telethon so some of the theme music is a little low in the mix (don't worry, it's only the music). You will also hear occasional loud noises announcing donations throughout the segment. Sorry about that but we love to help raise money for cancer research! 
    You will also sometimes hear Nick from the Epic Film Guys podcast, who, along with some other great podcasters, created the entire event and raised over $15,000 for the Cancer Research Institute. It's a terrific org, a fantastic event, and he's a pretty swell dude. Listen to Epic Film Guys wherever you listen to podcasts or learn more at http://www.epicfilmguys.com/.

Simply PERFECT!

I love listening- and re-listening- to episodes of this show. Alan and Rob are just hilarious and the comedy of the interruptions is just amazing every time. I don't know how they manage to make it this funny this consistently, but I absolutely adore this show. Even on a re-binge I still laughed out loud numerous times.

It’s a little bit funny, these jokes told in stride

It’s no joke this show is amazing taking sometimes very bland stories and synthesizing one he🏒🏒 of a podcast. If your just reading this... well you could already be listening.

The Review That Usually Ends

One of the greatest reviews I can give: if you want to know what Mystery Science Theatre 3000 would be like in podcast form, listen to this.
The stories are usually not good, but the running commentary is great. I have actually laughed out loud. And to be honest, I do feel pretty good about myself when I get the more obscure references.
