Smash Fiction is a debate-style comedy podcast in which a rotating cast of nerds argue on behalf of their chosen fictional characters. Only one can win!

    Cage Match 2022 - H. I. McDunnough vs Doug Chesnic vs Nick Cage vs The Janitor (feat. Hub & Kris Newton)

    Cage Match 2022 - H. I. McDunnough vs Doug Chesnic vs Nick Cage vs The Janitor (feat. Hub & Kris Newton)

    The eighth annual Cagematch arrives in your podcatcher as the legends foretold! 

    Cagemas is a time for family, a time for self-reflection, and a time for watching an ill-advised amount of Nicholas Cage movies in an artificially compressed amount of time. To honor this spirit, Kit got us all to explore the whimsical version of Arizona that is Raising Arizona and H.I. McDunnough's nebulously Southern accent. MeganBob asked what a job is really worth and to quietly consider whether or not Shirley MacLaine can get it with Guarding Tess. Claire dragged us into the topsy-turvy meta-narrative of The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (and if you haven't had the chance yet to say nouveau shamanic acting, do yourself a favor and say it, just as a little treat.) And finally, Smash Fiction cousin, Kris Newton,  busted in with Willy's Wonderland bringing us a character that's all efficiency, no chat, and possessed with the most devoted relationship to pinball yet committed to film. 

    Our other Smash Fiction cousin, Hub, presides over the madness as we throw mashed potatoes at each other and kick each other under the table. But deep down, the true spirit of Cagemas is celebrating the perpetual kaleidoscope of strangeness that is the career of Nic Cage and sharing in that strangeness together. So, come on in, pull up a seat, and feel the warm glow of Cagemas love!

    Cage Match 2021 - Johnny Collins vs. Robin Feld vs. Hero vs. Seth

    Cage Match 2021 - Johnny Collins vs. Robin Feld vs. Hero vs. Seth

    Merry Cagemas, gentle listeners, and welcome to the seventh annual Cage Match, presented by the largely (but not entirely) defunct Smash Fiction podcast! Four Nicolas Cage characters are set to do battle for the title of World Heavyweight Cage, and these particular Cages are among the most wretched and tragic in the notoriously eccentric actor's oeuvre!
    Has Kit finally found a Cage worthy of their strange devotion in the form of Johnny from Zandalee? Is Miles' somehow even more nihilistic interpretation of Pig enough to turn a chef into a champion? Can Claire actually remember what happened in Prisoners of the Ghostland? And will MeganBob fall from grace in defense of Seth from City of Angels, or soar to new heights on gilded wings? Or, you know, just start shipping everyone?
    Special guest judge Kris Newton presides as the SmashFic crew comes together once again to celebrate friendship, good cheer, and of course, b******t. Cage bless us, every one!

Binge-worthy

Extraordinary League is absolutely captivating! I have fallen in love with the story and the characters... And the Battle Ladle

Brian Richird Curtis Russell ,

This is a fun podcast to listen to

I extremely enjoy this show specially the league, ship wrecked, vs and the collaboratory. I do have a couple of wishes can they finally rollpay an eventual sene with stitch being skeletal cause no gas addressed the fact he had gotten cursed by that coin, also stitch is now immune to drowning in the water when its nighttime. Also skeletal trex mount

Scimmy(the one and only) ,

TL;DR; It’s awesome!!!

Let me just tell you, these guys (gals and non-binary pals) rock! They do something they enjoy, they don’t take themselves too seriously (on air at least), and they are super interactive with the fans. Do you wanna hear your name in every episode? Then you could probably have it said 5 times if you played your cards right! What began as a people’s court version of ‘who would win in a fight’ has grown into an excellent and massively complex continuity of challenges that somehow all manages to make sense. Even if you don’t agree with their verdict, you can see why it was ruled a certain way, and you have names of who to blame for their lack luster job of advocating, so you could write them and let them know all the things they did wrong (don’t do that you jerk it was a joke)!

But wait, there’s more! You thought the vs continuity was complex, wait till you try and follow extraordinary league! A very well told story where the players continuously try and break the GM by riding, throwing, portaling, or undressing to meet the challenges. Did you ever wonder what would happen if your players put on a real musical with actual songs...wonder no longer, for not only is there singing regularly, but there is a musical episode (just like Buffy!)!

And that is not all! Instead of letting themselves go stale or forcing topics, they took their strengths and expanded to new things that, guess what, are just as fun! What would happen if your favorite characters were on a dating show...find out, what if Godzilla was basically in every type of movie...find out, what if we replaced the core characters in LotR with random other characters in the general archetype...find out! To quote my favorite actual play podcast “they’re havin fun” and it shows. Come have fun too!
