Join us as we explore vintage episodes of SNL, analyzing the show and the bizarre pop culture ephemera that surrounded it. Tangents are had. Jokes are made.
Episode 123: Bronson Pinchot/Paul Young (Feb. 14, 1987)
It's Valentine's Day over at the ol' SNL factory and that means we gotta break out the big guns. Not only do we get a host way out of his depth with Bronson Pinchot and the middling musical stylings of a one Paul Young but we've also got model Paulina Porizkova in tow and of course, because it's S12, a little smattering of Buster Poindexter as well. It don't add to much at all so thankfully, we've got a live copy from Hawaii to give us a little bit of something to dive into.
Episode 122: Jon Hamm/Michael Buble (Jan. 30, 2010)
What's this? William Ham and Eddie Ham appearing on the show to discuss an episode hosted by Jon Hamm?! That certainly sounds whimsical indeed! Join us as we struggle to sort the present from the past with an episode that is good but is also kinda bad and misses a few key moments and we rant and rave. It's fun!
Episode 121: Sam Rockwell/Halsey (Jan. 13, 2018)
We're back for the first episode of 2024 and finally getting around to one that we've had on the back burner for awhile now. Yes, we did slightly cover this one all the way back at the birth of the show on an early Off Week but now we're digging full bore into one of our favorite modern SNL outings! Get ready for fun, adventure and bracing Tim Cicali monologues!
Off Week 52: Z-Axis & Wild, Wild South
It's time to go deeper, weirder and more esoteric than we've ever gone before: we're going local. Charlotte, NC to be specific. Join us as we uncover the sweaty, disturbing mysteries of public access perennial, Z-Axis and Wild Wild South, the birthplace of Charlotte's own disgraced local legend, Unknown Hinson.
Episode 120: Martin Short/Paul McCartney (Dec. 15, 2012)
As the wise Beach Boys once said, "Christmas comes this time each year" and following those sage words, we've decided this would be the best time to drop our Christmas episode! Jon Schneider is back aboard the ship to discuss Martin Short's cameo packed S38 outing as we hack it up about canonical vs. non-canonical moments, tearing ass, fateful bus trips and much more!
Episode 119: The Smothers Brothers/Laura Branigan (Dec. 4, 1982)
It's the Smother Brothers! Hosting SNL during the Ebersol era! Now that's some cozy, down-home holiday fun if I do say so myself. William Ham joins us as we break down the history of the mighty Brothers and how it runs up against a cancelled SNL special, live commercials tell the tale of the pre-crash video game market, more Airplane 2 discussion than you'd expect and more!
Dey dem Chemistry Boyz
One thing many new podcasts try to generate is chemistry that comes across (or acrosst) natural, whereas this AWESOME and EPIC display of friendship, does just that on this pod!
Love these guys, and love how conflicted they are usual by the time the rate the ep.
Been listening from the start, took a few years off and now I’m BACK binging; do yourself a favor, (if you love sketch comedy and friendship), give ‘em a shot!
Person who got banned on their discord
Boooooooooooooooooo! SNL is awesome
Ride or Die SNL fans may find some of the critiques to be harsh; but these guys take a thoughtful and respectful approach to de-constructing your favorite sketches and cast members. It’s very Norm of them, to continue castigating Norm, at a time when it’s in very poor taste ;-)
