    The Vectrex

    The Vectrex

    When it launched in 1982, the revolutionary Vectrex game system was set to make its mark with amazing, never-before-seen-at-home vector graphics. On this episode, we discuss this largely forgotten classic console, and gush about why we still love (and play!) it to this very day. Should you give it a listen? You bet your Asteroids!

    Predator

    Predator

    Suit up and GET TO DA CHOPPAH! for an in-depth look at Predator, a near-perfect blend of over-the-top action, sci-fi, and horror. We love this movie every bit as much today as we did when it first landed in theaters back in the summer of '87, and we're breaking down everything from its amazing musical score to behind-the-scenes evolution of the iconic alien creature itself. Welcome to the jungle, baby!

Ahh the memories

Brings back great memories of going to grade school with you two! Thanks for the trip down memory lane! Such a fantastic time to grow up.

Podcast gold

I have a rather long commute everyday and have found this podcast a hidden gem. Part silly banter between the hosts, part intellectual discussion on the subjects, and 100% nostaligic. You wont be disappointed.
