The Yellowjackets reunite at Lottie’s Wellness Retreat Center, but there’s no wellness to be found. As each woman goes about her “therapy” in the present, the show takes us back to the 90s to show us why they need therapy. Misty is a lovesick murderer. Shauna has had enough of Lottie. And everyone gets suspicious about Crystal’s disappearance.
Appearances (and disappearances) can be deceiving. Do you know how many episodes Tuco Salamanca appears in on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul? For a character with so little screen time, he leaves a lasting impression. Join Pete and Courtney as they say goodbye to Tuco and hello to Don Hector in their discussion of “Grilled.”
Lunchtime! Are you a fan of vintage things? A.Ron chats about some vinyl store finds and favorite albums. Jim also went shopping for vinyl, but it’s the vinyl figure kind. Get an update on A.Ron’s archery tourney adventures. And have you heard about the June 23rd Bald Move meetup? Get the inside scoop right here!
Since its release, The Matrix trilogy has influenced both entertainment and pop culture. The unconventional legacy is peppered with action, iconic characters, and that amazing 90s cyber grunge aesthetic. But above all the spectacle are the questions about human existence, free will, control, and order. Tune in to hear A.Ron and Jim’s conflicting takes.
Tyrion’s relationship with Cersei is . . . complicated. John and David are back to discuss Tyrion, Cersei, the pyromancers, and more. Historian Iain MacInnis explains the practices of hostage giving.
Is all the misfortune a direct result of the girls unknowingly dumping their waste on a sacred site? Is there a thermal vent in the forest that makes a natural crock pot? Why does it seem like there’s a source of energy coming out of the ground? As some theories get scratched off of the list, A.Ron presents a new one. It’s called “The Human Turducken”, and you should listen to find out what he’s talking about.
It’s not a great movie, but it’s a great time! Is it legal? Does it make sense? Isn’t this just Karate Kid 1? How many Bonsai trees must suffer before Daniel and Mr. Miyagi repair their relationship? These are the important questions Jim and A.Ron ask each other. It’s a laugh out loud movie, and a laugh out loud podcast.
Thanks Becky for commissioning this podcast. Happy Birthday, Norm!
We left it up to listeners to guide us to the most improved THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO episode ever, and what can I say? They rolled a natural 20 and crushed the skill check. The show writers had a lot of thoughts on Dungeons and Dragons, Satanic Panics, the Youth and Their Vidya Games. A lot of hilariously wrong thoughts, but in the best, most entertaining way possible. Grab your giant sand dial, don your best fez, and be sure to draw your destiny card because it’s time to enter the dark, sinister, literally underground world of Wizards and Warlocks!
This episode of Off the Clock features some quick thoughts on the action-comedy Polite Society followed by an introductory look at the new Apple+ sci-fi show; Silo. And finally Jim and A.Ron have a continuation of coverage for Ted Lasso and Mrs. Davis.
In the wilderness, Shauna’s baby woes ended in the simplest way, but it’s sure to cause a schism between Lottie’s followers and the non-believers. In the present, the team is back together at Lottie’s cult (ahem) wellness center. Did the mysterious darkness bring them together? Or has it been inside of them all along? And what weirdness does Matt have going on downstairs?
