17: Ip Man’s in This Movie!

16: Not an Anakin, Not Yet a Vader

When we’re not talking about Star Wars on a podcast, we’re talking about Star Wars amongst ourselves, or just thinking about Star Wars. At long last, some very nice people started making more Star Wars movies. We like to talk about those too.

13: It’s All in the Manual

PK, Andy, and Sean slouched into stiff-backed wooden chairs around a small, unpretentious table. The table was adorned with an electronic microphone in shades of black and silver, attended by a little black cord that wended its way out of sight to where a grim laptop waited expectantly. PK cleared his throat, a faint breath of dinner on his lips, to announce the idea, an an idea that had burrowed into his mind over the course of a hundred sleepless nights. An idea that had taken root in his psyche and burned until he could keep silent no longer. An idea that would change everything.

“Today,” he said, “today, we’re here to talk about minimalist storytelling.”

10: Tragic Warpasts Tied to War

Called out of retirement to stave off nuclear armageddon once again, our heroes decide to waste time talking about one of their favorite video game franchises: Metal Gear Solid. There are only 18 hours left until the deadline, so we’ll have to focus on the big questions: Can love bloom on the battlefield? Is anybody not a clone? And what’s the most delicious animal?
