The tradition is back, Lonestarinos. Join Ben and Alex as they take a break from all the garbage to talk about things that are not garbage: things like SXSW, Beirut, Chase Iron Eyes, trail mix, Sekiro, Happy as Lazzaro, life without booze, and the Democratic field. Eclectic and joyful as ever. Brought to you by jokes.
Finance, fitness, podcasts, cooking, social media… kissing? Mock shaving? Games that aren’t games? This week, Ben and Alex dip into the underbelly of low-rated, non-rated, and, shall we say, PG-13 rated apps available on the App Store (not Google Play, because we’re not that hip).
Some are adorable. Some are mighty and fearsome. Some are… useless, racist, and/or look like Harvey Weinstein? This week, join Ben and special guest Harrison Bryan as they figure out which Pokemon you should not “travel across the land, searching far and wide” for. Brought to you by electric fly swatters. Shout outs to the “Who’s That Pokemon” podcast!
It’s our 20th episode!! Let’s celebrate by talking about the finer things, such as Muse, Zelda, Charlie Kaufman, Name of the Wind, Maximum Fun, The Love Below, and… each other (awww). Parting the Curtain™: This episode was recorded the day LeBron James went to Los Angeles. Brought to you by GoGurt (not really, though).
Chekhov. Shaw. Miller. Churchill. Stoppard. Nottage. Baker. Jeff from accounting. Join BFA-holding experts Alex and Ben as they explore the Lone Star world of youth audition monologues that are written by God-knows-who and posted on the internet. Trigger warning: episode contains dramatic readings of material that addresses what it’s like to be a “typical teen” who “doesn’t want to chill with [their] cousin anymore” and/or needs to be “fully committed to figure skating.”
