Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? (w/ Gregg Gethard)

Join Scott and his very special guest, Gregg Gethard, as they discuss Gregg's amazing experience being a contestant on the geography-based PBS game show "Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?"! Listen as Gregg talks all about this surreal event from his childhood, including almost seeing someone get injured on the way to the show, how badly he wanted to beat his competition, his frequent microphone issues, how he got caught cheating, the story behind his terrible knock-knock joke, meeting award-winning actress Lynne Thigpen, the reason why he knew the exact location of Burkina Faso, and what ended up happening to his prizes. He'll also talk about how he handles the internet comments, some of his hilariously infamous standup sets, and most importantly, how this one day he spent on a game show set as a kid ended up being one of the defining moments of his life. Do it Rockapella!

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Pilot, Part 2

Join Scott and Kevin as they continue into the future and review the second part of the pilot for the highly anticipated series about a group of individuals with special abilities assembled by a time traveler from the 22nd century to stop a despotic ruler from conquering the world: DC's Legends of Tomorrow! Listen as they discuss the many issues with Hawkman and Hawkgirl's memories, the logical flaws of the "Amon dagger", the coincidences in the story surrounding alpha particles, their problems with the climactic fight, and much more! Should disruptions in the timeline happen instantaneously? Do the "Back To The Future" rules of time travel apply here? Where were the 1970's incarnations of the "Hawk-couple", and why have they neglected their son? They talk about it! So choose to fish instead of cutting bait, listen to the show, and set an alarm clock in case you pass out! 

And look for our review of Part One in last weeks episode!

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Pilot, Part 1

Join Scott and Kevin as they review the first part of the pilot for the highly anticipated series about a group of individuals with special abilities assembled by a time traveler from the 22nd century to stop a despotic ruler from conquering the world: DC's Legends of Tomorrow! Listen as they discuss, in detail, the characters in this show from their mostly golden and silver age origins in the pages of DC Comics, to their live action debuts in the various shows of the "Arrowverse". They'll talk about the troubles of trying to tell a good time travel story, what characters they liked and disliked, and the interesting acting choices by Wentworth Miller. So grab a timeship, set a course for this episode, and enjoy the show. Oh, and try not to disrupt the timeline! (Just kidding! Very few things actually bother the timeline, it seems.) 

And look for our review of Part Two in next weeks episode!

BONUS EPISODE: Oscillating Fan For Your Home

Join Scott and Hamish as they take a ridiculously close look at the Netflix original video that is taking the world by (wind?) storm: Oscillating Fan For Your Home! Listen as they breakdown every little detail, including the window, the sunglasses, the books, the exciting glass of ice water, and, of course, the fan itself. They'll discuss the video's possible therapeutic properties as a sleep or relaxation aid, its possibility of being a facet of a larger story the camera is facing away from, and how it holds up as a piece of experimental art. They'll speculate, scrutinize, and propose "fan" theories that'll make your head spin...like, you know,...a fan.
