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!

    Flopcast 426: Lilith Fair FlopFight Part 1 - Coffee Manicure

    The 2020s have been, uh, less than delightful so far. So let's go back to the 1990s, and back to the Lilith Fair, for another ridiculous FlopFight tournament! We're randomly drawing the names of Lilith Fair performers, and debating how they would fare in various stupid competitions. It's stuff like, could Suzanne Vega defeat Fiona Apple in a staring contest? Would Tracy Chapman be a better breakdancer than Bonnie Raitt? These are the important questions, people. And this is just part one. For more crazy Lilith action, join us next week, when our final FlopFight champion shall arrive in the arms of the angel, far away from here. Also this week: A drive-in stand up comedy show, a Beck song lyrics quiz, and an inflatable chicken (for indoor use only).

    Flopcast 425: How to Be a Better Nerd

    Flopcast 425: How to Be a Better Nerd

    Longtime friends of the Flopcast Brittany and Martha are back this week, as we officially announce that their podcast But First, Let's Talk Nerdy is now part of the ESO Network! We catch up on life in Las Vegas during the pandemic (Kevin escaped just in time), some of their recent nerdy show topics (like Sailor Moon, Cowboy Bebop, Riverdale, and James Bond), and the art of podcasting while tipsy (they need a sponsorship deal with White Claw). Be sure to check out But First, Let's Talk Nerdy, and welcome Brittany and Martha to our weird little ESO family! Also: We recommend online shows from Speak Up and Niki Luparelli, we still love Atari 2600 Asteroids, we remember comic book writer Denny O'Neil, and we're seriously considering watching Caddyshack II. Please, somebody stop us.

    Flopcast 424: Kornflake Loves the 90s

    Flopcast 424: Kornflake Loves the 90s

    Last week Kevin listed his ten favorite albums from the 1980s, year by ridiculous year. So this week it's Kornflake's turn, with an album list from the 1990s! (You may not remember the 90s very well. You were so goofed up on Crystal Pepsi back then.) It's a fun mix of alt-rock, pop, boy bands, and maybe even a little rap and hair metal. (But alas, no Spacehog...) Also: Happy Birthday to a classic TV mom (from Lassie AND Lost in Space), Kornflake is drinking something that isn't coffee, Kevin keeps running into Herbie the Love Bug, and Rhode Island wants outdoor strip clubs. Kids, the world isn't getting less weird anytime soon.

    Flopcast 423: Lobster Avalanche

    By request, Kevin lists a favorite album for each year of the 1980s, and Kornflake provides expert (?) commentary along the way. (Several Australian acts made the list. Not just Air Supply.) Also: We're dancing on the ceiling with clay heads in honor of Lionel Richie's birthday, Kevin finally leaves the house (wearing a chicken mask) for the reopening of Rubber Chicken Comics, we're back in Classic Sci-Fi Court, and Kornflake has weird coffee and a lobster avalanche. It was not a normal week. We don't have those anymore.

    Flopcast 422: What Do We Do?

    This is a short one, kids, because this seemed like a week for the Flopcast to mostly shut up. The plan is to get back to our usual silliness next time. Meanwhile, pay attention. Be careful. Get to work.

    Flopcast 421: NBC Saturday Morning 1980 - We Got Godzooky

    Flopcast 421: NBC Saturday Morning 1980 - We Got Godzooky

    It's our third and final show covering Saturday morning TV from four decades ago, and we've arrived at NBC. The network offered an odd cartoon lineup in 1980, consisting almost entirely of reruns! Even Godzilla and his tricky pal Godzooky were in reruns at this point, along with Hong Kong Phooey, Daffy Duck, Jonny Quest, and more. Hanna Barbera's only new series was The Flintstone Comedy Show, a crazy revamp co-starring Captain Caveman, The Shmoo, and monster family The Frankenstones! Meanwhile Filmation supplied reruns of Batman (and Bat-Mite!) along with some long-forgotten heroes (Superstretch and Microwoman, anyone?) that eventually landed the studio in court for copyright infringement. But that didn't matter to the kids in 1980; we just chomped our Lucky Charms and watched it all... Also this week: Just in time for National Nail Polish Day, Kornflake has a nail polish quiz that somehow involves Woonsocket, Rhode Island. And skinks. Of course.

Cheerful, positive, and saxophone harmony opening

I love the Flopcast so much I'm willing to struggle with iTunes, as someone who doesn't own an Apple device. Every time I hear their opening, I get happy. After a few words, their music intro starts with what I admit is my favorite musical instrument class, represented by a saxophone. After a few seconds, a second saxophone joins in, harmonizing in a higher range, and I bliss out. I hope you do, too.

They did take one episode to be sad about deadly racism (yet again), and I love them for that, too. But they see their role as cheering us up during difficult times.

They have a fun and funny take on pop culture, media, local and national events and people, and they do play around with their chicken theme. I never thought of Boston, Mass, as "Chicken Town," before. I still don't get it, but it's fun anyway.

Please give them a listen. I think you'll enjoy them.

Fun podcast with good host chemistry

Kevin and Cornflake have great chemistry, funny banter, and talk about fun pop culture deitrus from decades past. This is a fun listen. My only suggestion for improvement would be for the team to up the quality of their microphones.

Finally caught up on the Nerdist....

Now that the Nerdist podcast is not nearly as prolific with their output, I caught up on all of those podcasts, and now I am catching up on the Flopcast. I had listened to some of the episodes over the years when I had time, and now am starting over from the beginning. I'm up to episode 86 now, I especially enjoyed the schoolhouse rocks discussions, they were quite fun, and went over some that I did not know about and inspired me to look up on youtube. Thanks Kevin and Kornflake!
