On Now We Know, Kevin Werkheiser and Chris Tognotti return to resonant, haunting, farcical, or otherwise impactful entertainment obsessions of their youths, through the jaundiced eyes of adulthood.

Kevin and Chris go long on 1989's The Wizard, starring the likes of Fred Savage, Christian Slater, Luke Edwards, Beau Bridges, and the inimitable Jenny Lewis. Join for a magical road trip through the deserts, casinos, and Universal backlot tours of America, culminating in a video game showdown to shake the heavens—complete with the reveal of the new hotness, Super Mario Bros. 3.
Rock & Rule
Join Kevin and Chris on a trip into the annals of Canadian animation with Rock and Rule, a 1983 sci-fi dystopian flick featuring the vocal talents of Debbie Harry, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, and Don Francks as deranged super rocker/demonic summoner Mok. This was Canada's first-ever English language animated feature, produced by Nelvana—you know, they of the stately polar bear—and it hauled in a whopping... $30,000 at the box office. Did it deserve better? Time to find out!
Iron Chef (Japan)
No matter the season—whether it's hot szechuan soup weather, or time for a smooth, chilled pineapple pudding—it's always a good time for Kevin and Chris to dip back into the original Iron Chef series, which aired in Japan from 1993 through 1999, and was brought stateside via an iconic dub. Join the guys as they look back at a trio of epic clashes featuring mighty chefs iron Chen Kenichi, Hiroyuki Sakai, and Roksaburo Michiba.

DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp
Shabooey! If you know, you know. Kevin and Chris looks back at the ill-fated DuckTales movie, featuring Scrooge, Webby and the boys, Launchpad (barely), and Rip Taylor as, surely, Disney's number one animated genie.
A Great Show, with Great Hosts
I stumbled onto this show when I listened to their episode about Transformers: The Movie…which I daresay is just about the best, most earnest, & most entertaining review of that particular film I’ve ever encountered. Impressed with the quality of that episode, I kept listening, and haven’t been disappointed yet.
Kevin somehow found the only person drier than him on the planet and its made for some exceptional chemistry!
Nice to hear some real vocabulary in a review podcast.
Also cant say enough how the calm cadence is reassuring considering the nostalgic nature of the content.
Yall are absolutely killing it! Especially love the guest host eps!

A fun, nostalgic ride!
Kevin and Chris are my type of nerds! Great pod!
