Dave Pisani, Barry Kay and Tod Pleasant have teamed up to create the Regular Joes Podcast, a show that will focus on various aspects of the things they love most, movies, toys, sci-fi, tv shows, comics, collecting, and much more. Each episode will feature subjects such as the cool vehicles and props from classic movies and tv show, the movie you would want to have with you if you were stranded on a desert island as well as new or notable items the guys have added to their varied collections. Special celebrity guests will stop by from time-to-time to provide their input as well. There's no end to the useless stuff they know, but don’t call them Geeks, they're just Regular Joes!
Episode 393: Fedora Dreams
As the world slowly inches toward normalcy one by one the displaced priorities of our recently paused lives begin to reassert themselves. For the Regular Joes nothing says normal quite like pouring over several hundred pages of props up for auction. Most are unobtainable, many others are impractical, but that doesn’t really curb the deeply rooted desire to possess a tangible piece of cinematic or television history. This time around it’s the upcoming Prop Store Auction that triggers the internal rationalizing process which so often does not end well. For this episode Barry Dave and Tod are joined by prop aficionado Brian Mix, who’s own wish list is already quite long. Brian also catches the Joes up on some of his recent adventures. Who knew actually getting out of the house could be so much fun. There’s also the usual random topics, because well, random happens. Thanks for Listening!
Episode 392: e-LOKI-ution
With their Anniversary odyssey of cinematic enumeration behind them the Regular Joes are back in the saddle. This week they waited to record until they had all seen the first episode of Disney+/Marvel Studios Loki. So, if WandaVision was weird and intriguing, and Falcon and the Winter Soldier fell somewhat shy of expectations, the third time should be the charm . . . like a magic charm? Work with me here. At first glance Loki is everything we expected and seemingly more. Turns out the eons old Norse god of mischief may have room for personal growth after all. And of course, because you missed it, there’s the usual Random Topics and a Round of What’s in the Box. SPOILER Dave buys more tools and Barry buys more Star Wars action figures. Come on people, it’s been eight years, it’s not like you shouldn’t see these things coming. Thanks for Listening!
Episode 391: 8 Years, 100 Movies Pt. 2
To the total surprise of no one who listened to last week’s episode, this week the Regular Joes complete their top 100 favorite films of all time counting down from 50 to the highly contentious number one. Seriously people, Loki doesn’t start on Disney+ for another few days so what else do you have to do. To follow along with the Joes you can see the 50 to 01 slide show at RegularJoes.com To check out the video version of the podcast go to Thanks for Listening . . . or watching!
Episode 390: 8 Years, 100 Movies
This week the regular Joes Barry Dave and Tod , and the Irregular Joes, Derryl and Brian get together to nominate, aggregate and calculate the definitive list of their top 100 favorite films. On any given day it’s hard getting all five of these guys to agree. But this isn’t just any day, or any episode, it also marks the eighth anniversary of the Regular Joes Podcast. So sit back, pour yourself a delicious, and possibly elaborate, beverage, and learn in real time along with the Regular Joes (expect for Tabulator in Chief Derryl) just which films make the cut. For beverage suggestions check out the Joes themed drink recipes at RegularJoes.com. And check out the first ever video version of the podcast on YouTube, search Regular Joes Podcast. Thanks for Listening!
Episode 389: What's in the Boxes?
With all the stuff the Regular Joe’s buy you would probably expect a lot of duplication (or is it triplication) between their respective collections. It doesn’t really happen all that often. This week everyone got a long awaited package and everyone was extremely happy with what they got. Honestly when you take a superb figure like Hot Toys Star Wars Mandalorian then you throw in, not one, but two, baby Grogos how can you go wrong. Really you can’t. After that there was a lot of talking, and then, just like for the previous 8 years and 388 episodes pretty soon an hour had gone by. Some where along the way they squeezed in some Random Topics and a round of What’s in the Box, where shockingly, Dave had a tool, Tod had a book, and Barry had a Star Wars prop. No, this isn’t a rerun. Tune in next week for our eighth anniversary episode including the first part of our Desert Island DVD Deluxe Edition Regular Joes One Hundred Favorite Films Countdown. Thanks for listening!
Episode 388: You Should Read the Comic
Whenever Tod sets his hopes really, really, high, they are usually crushed. Ok, except for maybe The Martian, Daredevil, and almost every Marvel movie after Iron Man 2. Anyway, it seems like a prerequisite for actually enjoying Netflix’s superhero family drama Jupiter’s Legacy is having no familiarity with the source material. Next up it’s the newest entry in the pantheon of Disney/Star Wars properties shepherded by Dave Filoni (Clone Wars, The Mandalorian etc.). When you put “Bad” in the title you kind of set yourself up to a standard. Is The Bad Batch “great” no, not really. Is it “bad” no it is definitely not bad. In an oddly unanimous opinion, all three hosts (including Barry) think the Bad Batch is “good” with room for improvement. Listen in to find out exactly why. There is also a round of What’s in The Box, the Usual Random topics, and a brief tribute to our favorite 1980’s era car hood surfing redhead. Thanks for listening!
Great pop culture podcast!
Tod, Dave, and Barry (The Regular Joes) are fun to listen to as they discuss and dissect the popular arts including movies, TV, and toys. They keep a fun meta-perspective while also diving into the details for an all-around fan immersion. Tod does a great job bringing a comic book perspective, an unfortunately small media that has the potential to produce greatness (keep it up). Beware though - their recommendations from collectibles to flashlights to life-changing electronics can be expensive and habit-forming. Keep up the great work fellas.
One Stop Geek Shop!
Full Disclosure: These dudes are my friends. So I may be biased. Except that they became friends due to the shared interests we all share, so really, every episode they're speaking my language, and therefore if you're here looking for a podcast about all things Pop Culture, movies, tv, comics, toys, etc, then they're speaking your language too.
This is a highly entertaining show where Dave, Barry and Tod (and sometimes others) discuss in great detail the coolest new stuff, including entertainment news, reviews of new shows, old shows, movies that are getting great buzz, and verdicts on whether or not they deserve it.
What's in the Box? They talk about items they bought recently.
What's on the Bench? They talk about projects they are currently working on, because as knowledgable as the three are, they are also hugely talented in their own right, creating items, model kits, painting, prop replicas, all manner of creative endeavors.
Really, what more can you want? One a day? Yeah, well that's not gonna happen. So we're happy enough with one a week.
THE Source for EVERYTHING you like
This podcast encompasses everything in geek culture. The personalities of the three hosts drive the show, while the content makes it a “must listen.” If you like comics, movies, toys, collecting, super heroes, and TV shows, you need to give this a listen.
