    This week is our 50th Episode. It’s been quite a journey so far, and we’re looking forward to the next 50. For this episode Nate and Ryan gathered eight additional people who had previously appeared on the podcast at one point or another, trapped them in a room and asked them to talk about two things. First, Ryan asked them to tell him about some of their favorite comedy stories. Then, shortly thereafter the group discussed abridgments, cultural touchstones, getting involved in a land war in Asia, and of course, a MLT or mutton, lettuce, and tomato in the classic tale of true love and high adventure, The Princess Bride. With special guests: Nash Bridges, Scott Ponzani, Zach Smoker, Keith Kelleth, Angie Hall, Jamie Matsuoka, Nate Gibson, Terence Van Dam

    Welcome back to the Wild West. The land of cowboys, shootouts and dentistry. This week, Nate finally reveals a bit (a tiny bit) about the project he’s been working on. Ryan talks about games - both video and board. Then looking back on their own pasts, they decide to talk about music they listened to when the were just a mite younger. After a snack time of regret, they move on to their main media of the day. During that discussion, they talk about A and B plots, humor being a group effort, unbelievable love stories and jokes from another time in their discussion of The Shakiest Gun in the West starring Don Knotts.

    Still Trying to Make Something Good Happen

    Recorded September 4, 2021
    Summer is officially over. Nate was (un)aware that the Olympics happened. Ryan thinks about his flight, his quarantine, and his return. They also both are reminded that 0 is equal to nothing.

    For his game corner, Ryan talks about his not so honorable Samurai lifestyle in Ghost of Tsushima and as a period of reflection, the two think back on examples of great animated movies. After a chunky drink and an apple cinnamon KitKat they turn their attention to the main media of the day.

    In it, they discuss curses, talking boars, morally gray characters, and giant blobs of death as they focus on Princess Mononoke.

    Fully vaccinated! Nate and Ryan celebrate their fully vaccinated status with a couple of small (masked) trips with their respective families. Then Nate talks about his struggle to organize his photos and Ryan talks about a game with creatures that are part bug and part snack — Bugsnax. After reminiscing about some of their most influential teachers and drinking a honey lemon cider with Mint Chocolate KitKats they turned their attention to the main media of the day, in which they talk about acceptance, being the odd kids, and getting emotions right in their discussion of Bridge to Terabithia.
