Episode 132: Our Lawyers Made Us Change The Name Of This Episode So We Wouldn’t Get Sued (Fall Out Boy)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 132: Our Lawyers Made Us Change The Name Of This Episode So We Wouldn’t Get Sued (Fall Out Boy)

Hey, everyone! We’re back to our normal length for an episode this week as we discuss…music? Yep, you read that right. Fair warning, this episode is mostly James offering up facts and insightful opinions while Erin just screams “I LOVE FALL OUT BOY” into the microphone a whole bunch. (But she really does just super love Fall Out Boy.)

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 43: Erin Plays Matchmaker; James Likes Charts (Music Charts And Fire Emblem)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 43: Erin Plays Matchmaker; James Likes Charts (Music Charts And Fire Emblem)

Hey, everyone! First up: we’re still having audio issues so there’s some static and weird cuts in this episode; also, Erin’s dog tries to sabotage us by walking through the cords halfway through the episode. We apologize and will hopefully have all the sound stuff fixed by next week, even if it means going back to the old Blue Snowball mic instead of our new fancy individual mics. Thanks for your patience as we figure out what the hell we’re doing with sound.

This week we have a mixed episode for you. Erin gushes about video game romances, and James gushes about his love of charts and spreadsheets and countdowns. We’re all just full of love this week, folks! Except for our sound equipment. No love for our sound equipment. It can all just…fade away.

Episode 41: Slideshow (Recapping Lost Episodes)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 41: Slideshow (Recapping Lost Episodes)

Hey, everyone! We’ve had some audio issues lately, and have lost a couple of really good episodes, so this week we go back and briefly recap those. Think of it like a slideshow, snippets of all the episodes you’ll never get to hear because technology hates us.

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 on Twitter) for our most excellent logo.

Episode 31: 2 Tangential 4 Television (Outtakes)

Episode 31: 2 Tangential 4 Television (Outtakes 2)

Hey, everyone! As you know, we talk a lot, and sometimes we get off on tangents that we decide don’t really fit in with the main episode, but we still like the chat and don’t want to totally toss it. And thus, our outtakes episodes are born.

Rescued from the cutting room floor: casting a “Somewhere In Time” remake; Erin dreams the first half of Cloud Atlas, starring Lance Bass and Anna Kendrick; Theo Rossi is super great; pop-punk, pop-PUNK, and POP-punk; what does a Snorlax feel like?; baby naming.

Episode 21: B-I-N-G-ObGyn (Outtakes)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 21: B-I-N-G-ObGyn (Outtakes)

Hey everyone! Erin has been in Scotland for the past week so we weren’t able to record a brand-new episode for you, but that’s okay, because we still put together an episode for you! It’s shorter than usual and is made up of stuff we had to cut from other episodes to keep them from going too obscenely long. Or stuff that was so not relevant to the topic at hand and was easy to cut, so we did. Or, in one case, the only good parts of an otherwise not-very-good episode, which was when we learned that trying to record while in a car doesn’t really work for us. Apologies for the audio on those parts, cars are noisy. (Also apologies again for Erin’s weird intro audio, recording separately is not as awesome as recording together.)

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.

Episode 11: Nunabashedly Obsessed (“Hamilton” and “RENT”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 11: Nunabashedly Obsessed (“Hamilton” and “RENT”)

Hey, everyone! Today we celebrate James’s birthday, and tackle the hard-hitting questions on everyone’s mind: How does Periscope work? How Does “Hamilton” compare to “RENT”? Just how smart IS Lin-Manuel Miranda? Was Alexander Hamilton the Kanye West of his time? Is waxing your ears a good idea, or a bad one?

Today’s review buzzword is “nun”, as James’s autocorrect seems to think he’s more into “Sister Act” than he actually is.

Episode 8: The Fan Edition (Musical Numbers in Movies)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 8: The Fan Edition (Musical Numbers in Movies)

Hey everyone, and welcome to another episode of Unabashedly Obsessed. This week, we discuss one of James’s favorite things ever–musical performances in movies, not to be confused with movies that are musicals. Under discussion are That Thing You Do!, Pitch Perfect (1 and 2), Crossroads, and Empire Records. If you haven’t seen Crossroads, get on Netflix and watch it RIGHT NOW because Erin says to.

Episode 6B: Monkey Whistle (Teen Music)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 6B: Monkey Whistle (Teen Music)

In the second and final (?) installment of the Monkey Whistle series, we discuss music that makes us feel like adolescents again. Boy bands, pop punk, and…yeah, that’s all we’ve got.
