PCP Episode 087: Body Building

3 Oct

I…I don’t…I don’t even…You know what? We like to make fun of each other for the purpose of a good time. There’s nothing wrong with that if it’s sincerely all in fun. So, when Audie said he wanted to do an episode on body building, we thought “why not?” As usual, we get some of the best comedy possible out acting like immature idiots. However, surprisingly, it’s also quite informative. Very informative in fat. You may actually learn quite a bit about physical fitness. Either that, or you’ll get abs from laughing so hard at us give Audie a hard time.

PCP Episode 083: Scooby-Doo

6 Sep

Scooby…Dooby..Doo…where are you? We’ve got some work to do now. After all, it’s not so easy to rundown a franchise that has existed for over 40 years. Yes, it’s the heartwarming, yet seldom funny antics of Mystery Inc this week as we discuss the many series, movies, a predecessor to memes and have a remarkably challenging debate on whether or not reefer was an intended aspect of the original show. Just gonna point out that the word “dooby” was in the freaking theme song!

PCP Episode 081: Steven Spielberg

22 Aug

He’s…made…so…many,,,movies. We were so excited about the idea of doing this episode, but this many hasn’t not taken a break since he didn’t have money. You know the man’s name and so many of the movies, TV shows and even games that he’s made. Why feign a description. Jaws, Close Encounters, Indiana Jones, ET, The Color Purple, Hook, Jurassic Park, Schindler’s List, Amistad, Saving Private Ryan…the list does in fact go on. Listen, laugh, learn and may we all bask in the arguably the most impressive resume in Hollywood.

PCP Episode 078: Avatar

28 Jun

Honourrrrrrrrrrr! That’s the name of the game folks. With the first season for The Legend of Korra completed, we couldn’t think of a better time [soon] to discuss one of the best television series out there: Avatar: The Last Airbender. We’re doing it all today as we discuss our favorite characters from the original series, rundown the series, express our feelings on the pile of santorum that the movie was and The Legend of Korra. It’s a lot to talk about, but if you watched this show as religiously as some of us did, you know why. Grab some cabbages and foam at the mouth with us

PCP Episode 077: The Simpsons

7 Jun

Over 500 episodes and the Duff just keeps on flowing. Yes, we decided to pull the nostalgia card for our first full episode back. The Simpson…what more needs to be said? They’ve already done everything that you can come up with for a plot at this point. We rundown the history of the show, the cast, some of favorite characters and reminisce about some of the most memorable episodes in the show’s heralded history. Release the hounds for what is bound to be our worst..episode…ever.

PCP Overdose: Spare Parts

15 May

In lieu of a proper Weekly Dose, we’ve pulled out this gem that we’ve been saving for a rainy day. What’s it about? Well, basically we take time stroll down memory lane and recount our most infamous injuries. Apparently, some of us are pretty damaged. This one is a shorty, but a goodie.

PCP Episode 070: Joss Whedon

19 Apr

Hello fellow disciples of Whedonism. As you may very well know, we’re excited about a little movie called Avengers that’s coming up. As such, we’re gonna spend some time preparing for it. We’re starting things off with another chapter in our spotlight series; this time for geek icon Joss Whedon. We talk his collective works in television, film and comics here before we completely forget that it’s not an episode about The Avengers movie.

PCP Overdose: Biff Hardpeck

12 Apr

After the success of last weeks Overdose episode, we’ve decided to to being it back. The title makes sense if you listen, but is funny regardless. This episode brings the return of Carrolbot (from HR?) to the crew. We discuss a lot here. The change in game difficulty over the years, argue whether games are art (some of our replies may surprise you), we define what a “backpacker” is, the “old people complaining about young music” story, music sampling, white liberal guilt, Game Change and so much more! So much more that we have to push back 069 another week. It’s turning into a running joke, we know, but it’s one we can all revel in. Join us as we play the “Which ___ Cast Member Are You?” game.

PCP’s Weekly Dose: Wrestlemania XXVIII Review

10 Apr

You may have noticed a lack of Pop Culture Podcast last week. Well, this is why. The crew gathered for a sort of team-building exercise. Okay, it was more of a “bromantic evening” really. Now that the dust has settled and the we’ve hosed down Marcus, it’s as good a time to discuss what happened. We gathered around, ate pizza, watched grown men sit on each other and it all was well. Here’s our review of Wrestlemania 28.

PCP Overdose: Odinsleep

28 Mar

Of course, we wouldn’t leave you guys hanging so we’re here to shoot the breeze and talk about…anything. The name of game here is laughs as we talk about everything under the sun.

Yes, more (and it’s funny too)! We guarantee, be it by trolling or rolling, you will laugh. Fight off the #Odinsleep and listen to this episode!
