Episode 17: A Charlie Brown Bloody Christmas

Episode 17: A Charlie Brown Bloody Christmas

To help alleviate our guilt at our long delay, this Adventure is a special bonus double-sized issue! It’s totally planned that way and not at all because Jet Wolf couldn’t shut up about things. (By the way, Mike was not in fact in a tunnel while we were recording, he just doesn’t know how to set up a microphone. I find it amusing that I did not notice a problem, despite proudly proclaiming in our first segment that I had graduated to wearing headphones to monitor sound levels. It’s basically just failtastic across the board.)

  • Continuing our theme of hating on holidays, Nikki is completely unprepared for Christmas. Mike couldn’t care less. The conversation takes a dark turn as an axe murder appears to be loose in our house, and then somehow it becomes all about Star Trek for a while.
    [00:00:40 – 00:23:27]
  • The rest of the podcast is movie time, and first on the chopping block is Skyfall. As a lifelong Bond fan, Nikki has THOUGHTS and FEELINGS and you need to hear all about them. (PS: She is not pleased.) [SPOILERS all up in this.]
    [00:23:35 – 01:09:08]
  • In contrast is Wreck-It Ralph and guess what? WE LIKED IT. Come hear the rare segment where we are enthusiastic. The world really is going to end on Friday, isn’t it? [SPOILERS, though mostly on the mild side.]
    [01:09:15 – 01:43:45]
  • This week’s Final Round is kind of lackluster on both sides, but Nikki sneaks in a couple of bonus questions and Mike manages to get pissy!

Episode 4: Surprise! Jedis Kinda Suck.

Episode 4: Surprise! Jedis Kinda Suck.

Despite seeing each other every single day, Jet Wolf & Ultrace somehow manage to enthuse over a dozen different topics this week. It’s one long geeky chat and YOU’RE INVITED. Not to the actual chat. That happened already. But to listen to the past. And pretend. BYOB.

Among (many) other things we discuss:

  • The triumphant (kinda?) return of Community.
  • Spider-Man, the state of the X-Men, Daredevil and how Mike will fight Mark Waid to the death.
  • We’ve just started playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, and what begins as a discussion about its place in the world of MMOs somehow becomes Nikki talking about how much she hates Jedi.
  • Wasteland 2 is coming and Mike is stoked. He tells you why you should be too, and then Nikki gets all cynical about Kickstarter because of course she does.
  • The Final Round, where a statement is made that I guarantee you never, ever expected anyone to utter.
