Live from Chickentown, Kevin and Kornflake sip nasty black coffee and talk about silly & geeky things. Frequent subjects include: Saturday morning cartoons, Dr. Demento-style funny music, TV and movies of the 1970s and 1980s, comic books, classic video games, and, uh, chickens. (We like chickens.) Also lots of convention talk, as we regularly attend DragonCon, MarsCon, and many other nerdy gatherings. We're frightened and confused. Join us!

    The Weird Al Game Part 1 - No Mercy

    The Weird Al Game Part 1 - No Mercy

    We've had "Weird Al" Yankovic on our minds lately, probably because Kevin just participated in an American Sci-Fi Classics panel all about Al. (Check it out! We have a YouTube link just for you.) So we just invented The Weird Al Game, in which Kevin and Kornflake try to guess each other's favorite Weird Al songs. This week we're covering Al's first seven albums. Does Kornflake want a new duck? Will Kevin visit the biggest ball of twine in Minnesota? Join us as we dare to be stupid. (Admittedly, that's business as usual around here...) Also: Kornflake is celebrating Ice Cream For Breakfast Day, because apparently she loves rocky road.

    Arisia 2023 - Let Them Eat Ants

    Arisia 2023 - Let Them Eat Ants

    We are back from Arisia, Boston's annual convention of science fiction, fantasy, and general geekery. So here's our full report, including Kevin's comic book panels (on comic book memoirs and the history of Image Comics), the Mayor of Chickentown's Age and Fandom panel, and our pal Kevin Cafferty's Year in TV and Year in Star Wars panels! Also: The Post Meridian Radio Players with another fine genderswap Star Trek show! (We are big fans of Captain Jane T. Kirk.) The Geeky Belly Dance Show! The Masquerade! Our favorite costumes! (Our favorite costumes involved lobsters and anteaters, of course.) And Kevin runs around Boston like a maniac, finds the new MLK "Embrace" sculpture, and helps out the tourists at Cheers. Plus: Stargirl talk on Earth Station One, and National Whatever Day, because nothing is going to break Kornflake's stride.

    Stay Put, Mr. Chicken Man

    Stay Put, Mr. Chicken Man

    This weekend we are at Arisia, one of our favorite local fantasy and science fiction conventions. If you drop everything and run screaming towards Boston RIGHT NOW, you may be able to catch Kevin moderating a panel about Image Comics. (Bring your mint condition CGC-slabbed Walking Dead #1. We'll sign it and ruin it.) And yes, we have goofy badge ribbons for you. Watch for our full report on Arisia next week. But meanwhile this week: A "Chickens in the News" story about man vs. chicken vs. garage, devil tales (and Drake's Devil Dogs) on the Earth Station One podcast, and Happy Birthday to Ronnie Milsap, who made some early 80s country pop songs that we actually liked.
    If it's not too late, find us at Arisia!

    Memorial Show Part 2 - Remember My Name

    Memorial Show Part 2 - Remember My Name

    Let's wrap up our annual two-part memorial show, because we just can't take it anymore. This week's list includes: a couple of animation legends (Jules Bass and Paul Coker Jr.), a couple more 80s comedy stars (Judy Tenuta and Gallagher), beloved television actors (Nichelle Nichols and Tony Dow), beloved singers (Olivia Newton John and Irene Cara), another Goodfellas star, another Sesame Street star, another Gorgeous Lady of Wrestling, the voice of Batman, the creator of The Monkees, the evil guy from Tron, a Pointer sister, and many more. As usual, we recommend that you have a strong beverage standing by. Just be sure to cover it when the watermelons start flying.

    Memorial Show Part 1 - No Time-Traveling Dead People

    Memorial Show Part 1 - No Time-Traveling Dead People

    Our annual two-part memorial show begins here, as we recall the pop culture legends we lost in the first half of 2022. Including: actors (Sidney Poitier, Sally Kellerman, William Hurt, Ray Liotta), musicians (Ronnie Spector, Meat Loaf, Vangelis), comedians (Bob Saget, Louie Anderson, Gilbert Gottfried), artists (Neal Adams, George Pérez), a Gorgeous Lady of Wrestling, the moms from Seinfeld, the guy who made "Convoy," and many more. So join us, and bring a beverage. (Maybe garnish it with an orange slice. For Gilbert.)

    Cheers and Chickens

    Cheers and Chickens

    Last show of the year! So it's a quick one, as we look back on another goofy year of Flopcasting, including our 2022 Flopcast guests (all four of them), our strict cupcake and lobster roll diet program, and our ongoing obsession with Canadian PSAs. Plus: Happy Birthday to Ted Danson! Part 2 of our holiday podcast crossover with But First, Let's Talk Nerdy! (Warning: May contain Sponge Awareness music.) One last Electra Woman and Dyna Girl review on The Batcave Podcast! (Yes, it's the bizarre Markie Post pilot.) And A Very Pac-Man Christmas with the DragonCon American Sci-Fi Classics Track! (Also A Very Manimal Christmas and A Very Turbo Teen Christmas. Someone probably should have stopped us.) And finally... our New Year's Resolutions. Sort of. See you in 2023, nerds.

No, YOU love The Flopcast!

National Whatever Day is my favorite segment, but they're all delightfully random and great.
(Also I might be a bit biased.)
Can't believe this podcast has been going strong with weekly episodes for nearly TEN YEARS now.
That's a whole decade of goofing off.
That's dedication!
Kevin, Kornflake, and that amazing Mayor of Chickentown they've got there all absolutely RULE!

Never Fails to Entertain

Hello. How do you do? I am fine. As are Kevin and Kornflake. Their discussion of geeky throwbacks, sf cons, comedy music, and other miscellany never fail to entertain. (Or at least confound.) And they'll save your goose! (No, no. Wait. That's not right. Ah.) They'll give you Chickens in the News! And that, surely, is the true meaning of Christmas. Or something.

Silly and Smart

You know stuff? Like weird stuff? Like how many episodes do Young Dan’l Boone there were? This is your podcast.
