    Eric Origins- Episode 1: Animalympics! (Part 1)

    HAAAAAAAAAAPPY Wait... what's going on? WEDNESDAY, EVERYONE!

    Resurrected from too loud headphone audio, pieced together painstakingly together with chicken wire and cello-tape, powered almost entirely on soft pretzels, and Oreo milkshakes... IT’S HERE!

    THIS WEEK! Guest Host NightTrain357 likes a butt; Guest Host Lorin gets caught out of his shell; Dale gives a life lesson; and Eric has some continent issues as the Quartet ‘Quickly’ Quip through a Quandary of Quaint, and Questionable Quotes, avoiding Quarrel and Quiche alike…

    We embark on a journey through the dark foggy places of Eric’s Childhood, and explore the “Wait, what?” and “But, why?” that makes the co-host… um, unique. OPC Presents to you: Animalympics! A 1980 film which begins it’s tale being found on Beta Cassette in an old parent’s basement Eons ago. How well does a 40 year old piece of abandoned US animation hold up? You should watch it, and join us for the conversation. For all the obvious places you know we will go, and for the little surprise turns and stops along the way. Wanna have a peek into a window of what made Eric what Eric is? Are you brave enough? Heh. let’s find out, then. ;) (psst, hey… thanks for sticking around, and being patient. Really happy you’re here right now.) SO, ANYWAY!

    Has Dale started the War? Did Lorin uncover a secret unspoken lineage? Will NightTrain overcome size requirement hang-ups? Just how many butts has Eric *been* watching?!

    Find out the answers to these questions, and MORE on the FIRST part of this Two part Special Series!

    Eric Origns: Animalympics Couch Fire- Live Listen party Teaser

    Eric Origns: Animalympics Couch Fire- Live Listen party Teaser

    Hey, All! Not a Monday, but have a thing!

    It's been a year, and everything's been hard, schedule lined up, so I threw a mini party for Dale, & to share a movie from my childhood. (Socially distant, all gear out in the yard complete with projector screen, and fire. lol)

    It was a much needed night. 

    A LOT of the audio was lost, but I was able to recover/reconstruct some of it for this teaser, and possibly enough for a "listen along track" so you can feel like you're on the couch with us watching.

    Stay tuned for the "Listen along" track, I'm going to continue to piece together what I can, and send it along.

    Hang in there. It's hard. It's ok. 
    Be safe. Hugs and High fives, later.

    Sorry no episode this week.

    Sorry no episode this week.

    Hey all, Eric here. Sorry, no episode this week. Been a rough one with scheduling, more technical issues, and life things / stresses got in the way. I know you all can understand that things have a little bit more difficult to manage at times like this. We’re trying. It’s hard. I know it’s also hard for you. So, I’m going to try to do more, when I can, to try to keep the flow going. May not be an episode, but we’ll hang out. Keep an eye on our Patreon & FB pages for live streams, and videos.
       Things are scary out there, but we’re going to get through it together. Please be safe. Wash your hands, avoid touching your face, spread hope, not viruses, Save summer.

Best TF podcast ever!!!

I have been listening to this since the beginning of their prime series; Dale and Eric have used the best formula for a podcast. This is the only Transformers podcast (that I’m aware of)that caters to the fans of the cartoons. Love it!
