Episode 104 - STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI


This is not going to go the way you think! Ok, maybe it will--certain things are to be expected when you gather a bunch of Star Wars fanatics to discuss the film that many believe ranks among the franchise's best. Still, there's no lack of passionate opinions in this sprawling crossover episode featuring all your favorite podcasters from Reopening the Wormhole and Marvel Star Wars Explorers.

We're joined by Sam Stovold, Jack Stovold, Kevin Young, and Brian Rudloff as they weigh in on the chemistry of Rey and Kylo Ren, the many misfortunes of General Hux, and THE SACRED JEDI TEXTS! And how about those achingly adorable porgs, huh?

Fair warning to all you spacers: this is our longest episode ever, but nothing else would do for the weirdest, jokiest, and most divisive installment of the Star Wars saga to date. Godspeed, you rebels.

Episode 103 - MEMORABLE TOY COMMERCIALS


All work and no play makes Cam and Eric dull boys, so we're looking back at a bunch of our most memorable playthings in this well-deserved commercial break. Whether they showcased one of our prized possessions or gave us a tantalizing glimpse of a coveted item, these extremely effective ads stuck in our heads well past childhood.

In this 30-second-spot barrage, we revisit fads like POGs and virtual pets, submit dispatches from the Nerf wars, and vehemently dispute the nomenclature of Socker (Sock 'Em?) Boppers. This episode is more fun than a pillow fight!
