    You Don't Deserve Quidditch!

    You Don't Deserve Quidditch!

    Did you see Crimes of Grindelwald? Of course you didn't! No one did. If anything it makes you miss the days of Harry Potter and all of his fun Quidditch times ... a dumb sport designed to kill everyone that plays it. So much of the Wizarding World is terrible, but we'll use examples from the NFL, Fifa, and science to explain the downsides of the only sport anyone at Hogwarts gives a darn about.

    You Don't Deserve The Batmobile!

    You Don't Deserve The Batmobile!

    Grappling hooks, ejector seats, a jet engine ... the Batmobile has it all. Which is exactly why you don't deserve it. The effort to build and maintain such a vehicle a is way beyond what any of us can handle, not to mention the insane insurance premiums you'd need to fight crime in your own personal tank. Also, why does no one appreciate Alfred? He's British and he knows how to make soup!

    You Don't Deserve Jet Packs!

    You Don't Deserve Jet Packs!

    The Rainey bros are back with a new episode all about jet packs ... or to be more accurate rocket packs. Do you remember the Rocketeer? Think that was a fun movie? Do you? Well it's a movie that encouraged thousands of us to want a piece of sci fi technology that none of us deserve. There are so many ways to die in horrible gruesome ways, and we'll go over all of them for your listening pleasure.

    You Don't Deserve The Death Star (with guest host Ken Napzok)

    You Don't Deserve The Death Star (with guest host Ken Napzok)

    That's no moon ... it's a new podcast episode. As David needed some time off we invited Ken Napzok to join us for a discussion of the downsides of the Death Star. If you don;t know his podcasts, he's basically an expert on all things Star Wars and just an all around great guy. With his knowledge of Star Wars lore and Michael's pretend knowledge of science, this episode will convince you that there are better ways to run a military than creating an orbital battle station capable of destroying planets. And consider the amount of whiskey that was consumed during the recording of this podcast, we should all be thankful there aren't more random tangents in this episode.

    You Don't Deserve Force Fields!

    You Don't Deserve Force Fields!

    With so much out there in the universe trying to kill you, you'd think Force Fields would be a great solution. You'd be wrong (sorry to be so harsh, but it's kind of the theme of this show). We discuss the various ways scientists are trying to develop force fields, the advantages of blowing things up strategically, and Michael's PERFECT French accent.

I mean I like it

I am biased, but that being said I still think this podcast can be pretty darn entertaining at times.
