Episode 20: Betdie (Fall)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 20: Betdie (Fall)

Hey everyone! Erin’s audio is weird in the intro because we had to record a super-timely NCC over the phone, but we promise it’s just that one little bit, it gets better.

We like fall, and now it is technically fall (thanks, Autumn Equinox!), and we’re going to talk about fall. Bonus appearance by Torg the Dog, who is fickle and thinks James is a loser until James is holding a pizza roll, at which point he thinks James is the best person ever. Also, that weird buzzing sound you hear early on in the episode? That’s Torg snoring and there was no way to edit around it.

Thanks to Jamie Chahine for our theme song, “Did You Guys Know There Was A Ladder Down Here?”

Episode 19: James and Erin Write A Movie (How To Make Friends and Resurrect Your Pets)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 19: James and Erin Write A Movie (How To Make Friends and Resurrect Your Pets)

Hey everyone! It’s been a while since we wrote a movie, and boy do we have a good one this time. It’s a coming-of-age story about bubbles and chinchillas, and Derek is back and he’s doing it, guys!

Special thanks to Emily R. for our title, and to Jamie Chahine for our theme song, “Did You Guys Know There Was A Ladder Down Here?”

Episode 18: Fandon Brandon ((Mostly) John Hughes Movies)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 18: Fandon Brandon ((Mostly) John Hughes Movies)

Hey, everyone! (Not everybody. Everyone.) This week we planned to talk about 80s movies, but then that pretty much turned into just John Hughes movies, and then we talked about some other movies that are not John Hughes movies, nor are they 80s movies. Because of course we do. Also, we talk about boobs a lot.

As a special bonus, we get to hear (very briefly) from BOTH of the Kristens in James’s life!

As always, epic thanks go out to Jamie Chahine for our epically amazing theme songs, “Did You Guys Know There Was A Ladder Down Here?”

Episode 17: Canned Tuna Fish and Kirsty Swanson (Britney Spears(?), Music, and (Two Specific) Stephen King Books)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 17: Canned Tuna Fish and Kirsty Swanson (Britney Spears(?), Music, and (Two Specific) Stephen King Books)

Hey everyone! James and Erin have finally figured out what their most marketable skill as podcasters is, and it’s “getting off on tangents not remotely related to the topic they’ve chosen to discuss”. For example, today’s talking points are: Kristy Swanson vs. Kirsty Swanson; canned tuna fish; and music (specifically, Britney Spears music). The topic they are SUPPOSED to be talking about (and eventually get around to) is “Books They Are Currently Reading; Specifically, The Two Stephen King Books They Are Currently Reading.” Enjoy! (Spoiler Warning: There’s discussion of “Rose Madder” and “The Gunslinger”, with some minor spoilers, mostly of the latter.

Thank you as always to Jamie Chahine for our most excellent theme song, “Did You Guys Know There Was A Ladder Down Here?”

Episode 16: Not About Harry Potter! (…much.) (Tabletop Games)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 16: Not About Harry Potter! (…much.) (Tabletop Games)

Hey everyone! We barely talk about Harry Potter in this episode! And there are NO Cursed Child spoilers this week, so you’re safe!

This time, we delve shallowly (because, you know, time constraints and stuff) into two games we really super love: Magic: The Gathering and Dungeons and Dragons. One of us has never played Magic and the other has never played D&D, so this is sort of an old-school “you talk, then I talk” format. (Which we tried in the first episode and it ended up being just Erin talking and we never got to talk about James’s love of Magic. But now we do!)

Thanks as always to the ever-wonderful Jamie Chahine for our theme song, “Did You Guys Know There Was a Ladder Down Here?”
