In this fakely festive episode of the Braingasm Podcast we enjoy a meal of insightful conversation.
We began as we do every week with Ben and Cesca being prepared to definitively state the correct episode number.
After that we talked about how American Thanksgiving is NOT the true Thanksgiving. We provide undeniable evidence that the Canadian version is in fact the true turkey day. Adjust your calendars accordingly.
After that we talked about our least favourite things people do at concerts/sporting events. We flatten the wave, deflate the concert beach ball, and knock crowd surfing right off its board. WORD PLAY!
After that Ben discusses his progress towards being less of an unhealthy piece of s***. We talk about running, dieting, all the stuff you want to hear while listening to a podcast at your desk.
We then moved onto some TV talk. The second season of Arrow has shot one straight and true into Ben’s heart. And OBVIOUSLY we talked about the recent Doctor Who 50th anniversary special. Ben hadn’t seen it so there is no worry about spoilers.
This was our regeneration episode. Enjoy your fake turkey, fake stuffing, fake family, and fake football (ROUGH RIDERS = GREY CUP CHAMPS). We’ll see you all when you are significantly fatter.
In this our southern fried 117th episode of the Braingasm Podcast we find out that the killer was us along.
We began as we do every week by collapsing from exhaustion 3 minutes in.
After that Ben talked about his strange work habits, Cesca talked about modern TIbetan art, and a bunch of other stuff.
After that they discussed Walking Dead and how Ben may or may not start watching it again.
FInally the two ranted on their favorite topic: stupid people on the Internet. This week that conversation took the form of a discussion of the console war, and the misogyny many women face from the video game community…in a funny way, we promise.
They concluded with a brief discussion of the increasing length of the Christmas season.
This was a very scatterbrained episode. We had ups, downs, sides of fries, all of that good stuff. Enjoy in good health and merry christmas
In this our wicked dark 116th episode of the Braingasm Podcast we travel through time and relative dimensions in space.
We began as we do every week by absolutely butchering the Boston accent.
After that Cesca had some good news about her status regarding graduation from college and Ben talked about a new direction he has taken with his stand up.
Following that we checked in on Walking Dead to see if it has gotten bad yet (“It’s gonna happen” - Ben, screaming from across the room). We also discussed our feelings about the “Talking ______” series of shows, and why we’d never have Marilyn Manson as a guest on Braingasm.
After that it was all Doctor Who all the time and relative dimension in space! Ben checked in on his progress and the two had an in depth discussion about the episodes that he had watched. We spent most of the time discussing the three part finale of series 3. If you’ve seen it, then you’ll know why (it’s really really good). As with all of our Doctor Discussions be advised that SPOILERS ABOUND. If you are not caught up with the series then absolutely do not listen to this part of the show.
Very fun episode, greatest apologies for last week. Fun times ahead as always in Braingasm-land!
In this spooky 115th episode of the Braingasm Podcast we get all spooky in honour of Halloween.
We began as we do every week with Ben describing ideas for terrible episodes that we will never do…or will we (MUAHAHAHAHA)
After that we took some time to discuss the death of rock legend Lou Reed.
After that we talked about a bunch of spooky topics including Cesca’s basement ghost, Ben’s spooky Dagobah tree of a walk, local serial killers, you get the idea.
After that we talked about horror movies. We talked a little bit about movies themselves but the conversation was more of a meta discussion of the nature of horror movies themselves. We did mention and discuss some of our favourites so if you’re looking for something to watch this Halloween, take notes.
Finally we talked about The Simpsons. We started off by confessing our love of Tapped Out, and then we discussed the current Treehouse of Horror update as well as beloved previous updates, We also talked about the Treehouse of Horror episodes themselves, hence the episode title.
All in all, a perfectly macabre hour of podcasting. Happy Halloween folks.
In this our 114th episode of the Braingasm Podcast we got the episode number correct!
We began as we do every week by getting the episode number right (very proud of us).
After that Cesca attempted to explain the plot of American Horror Story. I say attempted because try as she might I have a hard time imagining that anyone could sum up a season of that show and retain their sanity. SPOILERS if you care about AHS season 1 spoilers for some reason.
After that Ben took another bite out of Cesca’s belief that the Walking Dead is good. They talked about the most recent episode, pigglet-cide, how it’s possible to coexist with decaying bodies without suffering from every disease imaginable, and villain songs. SPOILERS if you haven’t seen the newest episode.
Finally, Ben travelled ahead in time from 2006 to 2007…in his binge watching of Doctor Who. He watched episodes 2.8-3.6 so be warned of SPOILERS for every episode up to and including 3.6. We talked about the episodes themselves, general feelings about the series as a whole, why the new companion is infinitely better than Rose, and much much more.
