In this our 148th episode of the Braingasm podcast we talk about stardom, both old and new.
We began as we do every week with Ben enjoying it thoroughly and Cesca protesting the whole way through.
After that we talked about how weird it is to have fans and how we cope with it (hint: not well). Cesca told stories about some of the fan encounters that she had on previous ventures. Ben talked about why he prefers to have random fans, and not people he knows listen to the show. All that good stuff.
After that we talked about some of the most classic stars of yesteryear. We talked about James Dean and Marlon Brando’s Chester and Spike-esque relationship. How Ben has never really gotten into Elvis. How celebrities could get away with anything back in the day.
This was a fun, jaunty episode. Much lighter than our more recent outings. Enjoy.
In this our 147th episode of the Braingasm Podcast we give you a helping handful of infotainment.
We began as we do every week with Ben telling Cesca that he pushed the wrong button, and nothing would be recorded this week.
After that we talked about tattoos, tattooing, some of the history of tattoos, tat-well you get the gist. Special shout out to the Stuff You Should Know podcast for providing the actual information for tonight’s conversation.
After that we got really cerebral, and talked about how your memory is actual an evil gnome that lives in your head and is lying to you at almost every moment of the day. In all seriousness we did get a bit heady (a-thank you), but we kept it fun and light and, dare I say, mind-blowing.
Finally we talked about the ghost of Braingasm past and Braingasm future. We shared a clip from one of our favourite episodes of yesteryear, and Cesca teased her exciting new side project. Now with 100% less Ben (but he still gets half, check your contract). We also gave some advice for people thinking of starting a podcast of their own.
We have so many new and exciting developments leading up to 150. There’s almost not enough show to cram them all in. WEEEEEE!
In this our 146th episode of the Braingasm podcast we explore the phenomenon of death by discussing all of the gnarly stuff that happens to your body once you can’t fight back.
We began as we do every week by talking about the newest innovation, the Filofax Jr. Which can be yours for only 3 easy payments of $97.99!
After that we talked about the impending release of Weird Al’s new album, and Cesca told the story of her electric 4th of July.
After that we dove deep into the past to talk about a game that deals with the even deeper past. We pulled LA Noire off of the shelf and dusted it for prints…and because it was covered in dust.
After that we got to the topic at hand. We moved beyond the white light to talk about everything that happens to you after your soul ceases to sublet your internal organs. Cesca reveals more of her past as a funeral director, Ben and Cesca share their plans for how they want to be buried/entombed, and Ben talks to his children in the future. It’s all very confusing.
This was a weird and morbid episode, but I hope that you enjoyed it. Remember to tell the people in your life that you love them.
In this our 145th episode of the Braingasm Podcast we talk about pens, Robin Thicke, and Cesca’s secret origin.
We began as we do every week by talking about stuff and/or things.
After that we talked about the World Cup, and America’s brief interest in it. We also talked about the most recent shit sandwich season of The Boondocks.
From there we transitioned to a lengthy conversation about pens…yes, you heard that right. We talked about the fine worlds of fine points, we got on the ball with ball points, and…more pen puns coming. We also talked about a cool podcast all about pens called the Pen Addict.
After that we talked briefly about Robin Thicke and his recent contro-crazy before Cesca dropped a bomb on Ben talking about her father. It was a very interesting and candid conversation about a very complicated relationship. Worth a listen no matter what.
That’s all folks. I hope that you have enjoyed this very Cesca-centric episode as much as we did.
