Episode 161: Hulu and Screw

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

So you say you have too much free time? Well worry no longer! Geek Salad had returned with some great suggestions to while away an afternoon or two or ten binge-watching some streaming TV shows with episode 161: Hulu and Screw. If you think streaming services are only for catching reruns of The A-Team, then prepare for a lot of knowledge to be coming your way.

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine as they list off some of their favorite shows which are available for streaming online somewhere and are eminently bingeable. Sure, there are the well-known ones like the Marvel series and Stranger Things, but the gang goes more into some shows that are great, but maybe are not as familiar as they should be. Never fear, though, for reruns of former shows do also make their appearances.

Episode 157: Two and a Half Meningitis

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

 We all have TV shows that we absolutely love and go back episode after episode to follow along with the story and characters. However, we all also know of a show that we truly loved, but found it getting stale, dull, and/or just plain stupid the longer it remained on the air. In honor of those shows that refused to quit even after the writing did, Geek Salad presents episode 157: Two and a Half Menengitis.

Join Andy, Joe, and Mike as they discuss some of their favorite shows which slowly, or rapidly, devolved into some of their least favorite shows when they refused to end. Did ER really need to go 7 seasons after losing Anthony Edwards? Is Family Guy still on the air? And Heroes was only heroic for the first season of a 4 season run.

Episode 155: Playbill and Rent’s Excellent Adventure

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

Please refrain from flash photography and make yourself comfortable…Geek Salad is going Broadway with our gala musical episode (disclaimer: outside of a couple of random parts here and there, nobody actually breaks out into song).

 

With the help of guests Matt Jones (i.e.; professional actor type) and Autumn (aka: “Mrs Andy”), as well as a MASSIVE swell of social media feedback, Andy, Mike, Katherine, and Joe cover many different eras and genres of musicals.  While the discussion focuses on the typical Broadway show, the gang does talk about movie musicals, as well as sending Mike and Joe out to Thunderdome to discuss the TV (Stunt) Musical…

 

Due to the length of the discussion, we’ve put together playlists of much of the music discussed on the show.  You can download the Spotify Playlist here

Or check out the YouTube Playlist here

Episode 153: Huked on Fonicks Wrked 4 We

Friday, December 1st, 2017

Honestly, who reads books these days? I thought books ceased to exist once you leave school. Well, apparently not, because the Geek Salad crew is getting all edumacated and literatical as they discuss some of their favorite books, book series, and authors in Geek Salad episode 153: Huked on Fonicks Wrked 4 We.

And if you don't understand the joke for that title, look up the commercials for Hooked on Phonics... or at least listen to Brian Regan's first comedy album.

And before you go thinking that we're just a bunch of weirdos (which we are anyway) for reading books, we got a TON of listener feedback for this episode, so we're obviously not the only one. So whether you've got a letter of admission to Hogwarts, are hiding from the dozen more monsters Stephen King wrote about this year, or just chilling the the Fremen of Dune, pull up a comfy chair and enjoy this latest episode before tackling the latest adventure in Tortall.

Episode 152: MU-TH-UR is a Bitch!

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

In space, no one can hear you scream….that goes double if you’re watching any of the “Alien” movies past 1986’s “Aliens.” 

 

So to celebrate Geek Salad’s 10th Annual Halloween show, Mike, Katherine, Joe, and Andy sit down to discuss the horror that is the “Alien” movie series.

 

From Ridley Scott’s tense 1979 entry into the series, to the clunky schlock-fests in the “Alien vs. Predator” series, and back to Scott’s navel-gazing into the prequels, we’ve got you covered!

Episode 139 (Side A): Joshua Tree 2: The Destruction of Bruno

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

1987….The year that yielded some of the best music of the entire decade.  So why does the Top of the Charts look and sound like it was frozen in a time capsule from 1961?  Andy, Mike, Katherine, and Joe try to discover the answer in Geek Salad’s Episode 139:  Joshua Tree 2:  The Destruction of Bruno, where they attempt to break through the notable singles of the year. 

 

While there were some timely stalwarts of 80’s music; Madonna, Bon Jovi, U2, etc…the pop charts were littered with the likes of Lisa Lisa, Billy Vera (who wrote the breakup song to end all breakup songs for “Family Ties”), and Gregory (who?) Abbott…

 

…also, Mike will be hearing Kenny G’s “Songbird” for the first time, so be nice to him…!!!

Episode 137: Kristmas Karol by Edmund Welles (the Well-Known Dutch Author)

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

It's Holiday time once again, which also means that it is once again time for Geek Salad to present their annual Holiday episode. This time, they cover Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and the revenge of Tiny Tim in Geek Salad episode 137: Kristmas Karol by Edmund Welles (the Well-Known Dutch Author).

Ever since it was first published in 1843, hardly any story in history has had as many adaptations as Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. While there have been a number of well-done faithful adaptations, and quite a few fun and different takes on it as well, there have also been more than a few versions that bring out the Scrooge in us. So join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Autumn as they experience both the highs and the lows.

They are also accompanied by three spirits: Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, and Mulled Wine.
