Episode 2.11 – Why would you premiere a movie anywhere but Lubbock?

It’s Chasing Mimi’s tribute to the silver screen. In this episode Ryan and Martin are joined by Sports Illustrated’s Lindsay Schnell, who is as passionate as we are about kids sports movies, a genre that is woefully underrepresented in today’s film industry.

Among the topics discussed are:

- Air Bud, seriously, the plot of Air Bud

- How terrible dads are in these movies

- Girls being awesome at sports

- Joshua Jackson

- Enchanted Game Gears

So strap yourselves in, grab some popcorn and enjoy. We’d like to thank the Academy and all of you.

Episode 2.10 – A Bagel Bites Marriage

We’ve missed a couple of episodes due to the dumb idea of moving to new places to live, but we’re making it up to you by talking to certified TV commercials expert Erik Malinowski, author of this fantastic piece on Tom Emanski’s timeless entry in the genre.

Commercials we discuss include:
– Crossfire and Lite Brite
– Muzzy
– Action Park

And this horrorscape.

Advertising is so weird.

Episode 2.9 – Behold the mighty TETHERBAR

After a bye week to prepare for our next guest, we were well rested and ready to talk about gym and recess with none other than Bleacher Report’s Adam Kramer (the indomitable @KegsNEggs). While Adam is still riding his hot streak from tetherball and dreaming of future stardom, Ryan compares foursquare to life and Martin tries to explain what the heck Dr. Dodgeball is.

Join us and have fun because fun is good.

Episode 2.8 – There are two kinds of SimCity players in this world

As we prepare for all things Freedom and America, Internet friend Bobby Big Wheel stops by to talk about computer games, the only way we could trick our parents into thinking we were doing something educational as kids while we were really conquering nations with the click of a mouse. Some all-star names are covered like SimCity, as well as some lesser known hits like Amazon Trail.

In the end we laughed, we cried, and we remembered what it was like to be kids in front of a computer screen trying to figure out whether to build roads or a new power plant when we really should’ve been kicking soccer balls instead.

Episode 2.7 – And the Grammy goes to … Adult Chocolate Milk

This week’s episode features a subject that is near and dear to our hearts: 90s R&B. We welcome Lauren Brownlow from Fox Sports Carolinas to help us remember the good times.  In our exploration of all things sensual and double entendre, we break down Ginuwine’s Pony video, the albums that got us into the genre (soundtracks included), who we’d like to have perform if we had $1,000 and more.

There’s also a brief introduction to Adult Chocolate Milk, which Martin has volunteered to try at some point soon for some inexplicable reason.

Episode 2.6 – Giant Puppets Riding Foxes Into Battle

Ryan and Martin talk to Lana Berry, who ruins basically every TV show Nickelodeon and the Disney Channel put out in the 90s. She also thinks foxes are much, much larger than they are, and now Martin’s not going to sleep well for months. Thanks a LOT, Lana.

Episode 2.5 – The Tale of Enterprise Village

In the spirit of, well, the show that got us here, this week is devoted to school trips. While none of us took a whale watching expedition in the name of education, we did some other fun stuff. Here to help us reflect is MLB.com’s Matthew Leach, who brought our Florida contingent into frightening quorum levels. We discuss trips to Florida destinations, Tampa: the social media manager of cities, as well as Enterprise Village. You’ll just have to listen to find out what the heck that is.

Follow Matt on Twitter because he is great and listen in whatever manner you feel most comfortable to our fair podcast. Godspeed.
