Episode 127: THanksgiving 2, Week 1: Hi Again, Caitlin! (“The Green Mile”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 127: THanksgiving 2, Week 1: Hi Again, Caitlin! (“The Green Mile”)

Hey, everyone! Who here likes a nice clean segue? I hope you all do, because boy do we have one for you. We transition this week from All Hallows’ Steve into THanksgiving 2: Electric Hanksaloo (the jury is still out on which of us came up with that, but we both agree it is a bad name and we don’t know why we’re still using it), and we are joined once again by friend of the podcast and former guest Caitlin Kunkel to talk about The Green Mile, that unique piece of media that straddles the fence between Stephen King’s yard and Tom Hanks’s yard so beautifully.

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 119: Hi, Raeanna! (Neopets, “Sister Act 2: Back In the Habit”, and “Clue”)

Hey, everyone! This week is our final week of Auguest, and we are closing out the month with our first solo guest, the lovely and talented Raeanna from Mount Olympus University! We start out by learning about a thing we don’t know anything about, then move on to talk about a couple of movies James knows quite a bit about and Erin has only seen once before. (Spoiler: They’re good movies, Brent.)

Episode 118: Hi, Kyle and Conner! (James and Erin [and Kyle and Conner] Don’t Actually Really Write a Movie, Thank Goodness)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 118: Hi, Kyle and Conner! (James and Erin [and Kyle and Conner] Don’t Actually Really Write a Movie, Thank Goodness)

Hey, everyone! It’s week 3 of Auguest and this time we are joined by our favorite dusty bois, Kyle and Conner from The M Word.

We had a plan for this episode. We planned to have them help us write a movie. But the best laid plans of Erin and James quickly get derailed sometimes when we realize that just every single title submission we got sounds like a porn title, and things just really went off the rails from there.

The bad news is that we didn’t actually really do an in-depth write-a-movie this week. The good news is that we didn’t actually do an in-depth write-a-movie this week.

Episode 117: Hi, Matt and Chris! (“Airborne”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 117: Hi, Matt and Chris! (“Airborne”)

Hey, everyone! We are back for another week of Auguest, and this time we are joined by Matt and Chris Yule of Finish It!, a completionist’s interactive fiction podcast. If you aren’t listening to their show, you really, really should be.

Bust out your Rollerblade-brand inline skates, because we are talking about 1993’s “Airborne”, starring a very young Seth Green and Jack Black. At the time of the recording, we thought you could only stream it on YouTube, but it turns out you can also stream it on Amazon…or just buy the DVD (with our affiliate link, there), because you will want to own this movie because it is very good.

Thank you to Matt and Chris Yule for letting us blatantly steal their on-air game idea, and to Matt for letting me use his theme music for it, which is one of my favorite jingles from Finish It!

Episode 116: Hi, Jen and Micah! (“Now and Then”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 116: Hi, Jen and Micah! (“Now and Then”)

Hey, everyone! Welcome to the first OFFICIAL episode of Auguest! This week we are joined by Jen and Micah from I Never Saw That to talk about 1995’s Now and Then, which is one of Erin’s favorite movies from her tween years. Hop on your bike, grab a pop, tape your boobs down (wait, what?), and make a pact with us that if you haven’t seen this movie, you will try to get your hands on a copy.

Episode 112: Hi, Bill! (Stuff We Like [But Didn’t Expect To])

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 112: Hi, Bill! (Stuff We Like [But Didn’t Expect To])

Hey, everyone! This week we are joined by Bill from The Great Albums podcast, to chat about things we really like that we didn’t initially expect to like. Topics include music, books, music, TV, music, and of course music.

We recorded this one a little bit ago so we don’t mention the 2PodsADay campaign we are participating in this month, but you should go check out their Twitter and see if your new favorite podcast is waiting for you to discover it!

Episode 108: Hi Again, Lucy! (“13 Reasons Why” Season 2)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 108: Hi Again, Lucy! (“13 Reasons Why” Season 2)

Hey, everyone! Netflix’s “13 Reasons Why” is back for its second season, which means our dear friend Lucy is back with us to discuss it. It’s a longer episode than normal, but that’s because this season is just so complicated and has so many layers and also we spent a good 15 minutes discussing how really terrible poor Kate Walsh’s wig is.

Trigger warnings in this episode for sexual assault, rape, suicide, self-harm, drug use, and gun violence. Also, just, like, so many spoilers.

Episode 103: Hi, Caitlin! (90% Stephen King, 10% Book Deals)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 103: Hi, Caitlin! (90% Stephen King, 10% Book Deals)

Hey, everyone! This week, we had the chance to sit down with the most excellent Caitlin Kunkel, co-founder of The Belladonna, a comedy and satire website consisting entirely of pieces written by women and other marginalized genders. It’s very, very good, and you should definitely go check it out.

But that’s not really what we talked to Caitlin about. Mostly we talked about Stephen King, because if there is someone out there who matches (and maybe even surpasses!) us in our unabashed obsession with Stephen King, it’s Caitlin. Spoilers for “The Stand” happen. Also for “Misery”.

We also talked about the book deal she recently landed, which is a really interesting conversation and she claims to only know enough about book publishing to fill 10% of an episode, but I think she was selling herself short, because she knows at least enough to fill 11% of an episode.

Episode 79: Hi, Lucy! (Again!) (“Bosom Buddies”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 79: Hi, Lucy! (Again!) (“Bosom Buddies”)

Hey, everyone! This week we are in cahoots once again with the marvelous Lucy from the currently-comatose Midpoint Podcast. We have blatantly stolen the premise of her show and watched the middle episode of the THanks show “Bosom Buddies”, and it was not quite what we expected. Join us for a rousing discussion of guacamole wigs, sexy juggling, and a whole lot of really charming THanks moments.

Episode 65: Hi, Allie and Adam! (“American Psycho 2: All American Girl”)

Hey, everyone! This week we sat down with Allie and Adam from So That’s How It Ends to watch American Psycho 2: All American Girl (which was a CINEMATIC MASTERPIECE and EVERYONE should go watch it immediately) and completely steal their format!

Episode 56: Hi, Marc! (Again!) (OCD and Potpourri)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 56: Hi, Marc! (Again!) (OCD and Potpourri)

Hey, everyone! We sat down with Our Friend Marc again for a long and lovely conversation about obsessive-compulsive disorder and how it affects one’s approach to pop culture and fandom. We hit on a lot of topics during this chat, but in the end Marc ties it all up for us.

Episode 53: Hi, Mary! (Whisk[e]y Business)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 53: Hi, Mary! (Whisk[e]y Business)

Hey, everyone! We deviate a bit from our standard fare this week as we are joined by Mary from Hungry Hungry Hip Girls, who guides Erin through a whisk(e)y tasting and James through a whisk(e)y smelling, as James rightfully decided that drinking a bunch of whiskey at 9 pm on a Wednesday was maybe not the best idea. Additional talking points include apples vs. tomatoes, and some bizarre anime porn thing Mary stumbled upon.

Episode 52: Hi, Andy! (Comics)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 52: Hi, Andy! (Comics)

Hey, everyone! This week we are joined by longtime friend of James and the show, Andy! Hi, Andy! Andy graciously invited us into his home to talk comics and Torg memes, and to let Erin pet his cats, Olive and Feta, who are very soft and very, very fat (i.e., the best kind of cats).

Episode 49: Hi, Lucy! (13 Reasons Why)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 49: Hi, Lucy! (13 Reasons Why)

Hey, everyone! This week, the amazing Lucy from Midpoint Podcast joins us to discuss the current Netflix phenomenon “13 Reasons Why”. There will be spoilers. Trigger warning: This episode discusses teen suicide and sexual assault, so if that’s not something you’re up for listening to, we understand and will be back next week with something a little lighter.

Episode 47: Hi, Nar! (Sherlock)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 47: Hi, Nar! (Sherlock)

Hey, everyone! This week we have a special guest, Papa Narwhals from Pokemon Go Radio! Erin has been listening to his show for some time now and tweeting at him incessantly until he responds, and she’s like a stray kitten–he gave her attention and now he can’t get rid of her. Nar joins us this week to discuss BBC’s Sherlock (be prepared for spoilers), but not until after we get him onboard the Stephen King train.

Thanks as always to Jamie Chahine for our theme song, “Did You Guys Know There Was A Ladder Down Here?”, and to Emily Kardamis (@corruptedgem) for our logo. You can find Nar on twitter @pgr_papanarwhal.

Episode 10: Hi, Marc! (Movies, Collections, and Bad Dates)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 10: Hi, Marc! (Movies, Collections, and Bad Dates)

It’s a long one but a good one! James’s Friend Marc joins us for a lively discussion of movies, things we’ve collected in our lives, and our worst/most awkward dates. (Erin feels it important to note that at the time of this writing, Marc has still not rated or reviewed us on iTunes.)

Today the “F” stands for Failure (specifically Marc’s, to post a review) and the review buzzword is “engage”.
