Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery….but what happens when the imitation surpasses the original?  Well, the team at Geek Salad is going to try to answer that as they discuss the cover songs they feel surpassed the originals!

 

Joining Mike, Katherine, Joe, and Andy for this installment is onetime co-hose of the show Jim (and his son Nicholas, who is keeping us on Language Filter throughout the show) as they talk about some great covers from Metallica, Pearl Jam, Rascal Flatts, Foo Fighters, and Disturbed, among others.  They will also fight tooth and nail over the age old question about if there are actually any good Beatles covers out there….

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 159: Who is Sally and Why Does She Like Mexico?

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018

Out of all the filmmakers of the past 50 years, perhaps of all time, few have been as popular nor seminal as Steven Spielberg. To celebrate the life and films of a man often considered one of the greatest directors of all time, Geek Salad discusses all things Spielberg in episode 159: Who is Sally and Why Does She Like Mexico?

Join Andy, Joe, and Mike as they discuss the many highs (Jaws, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park) and relatively few but still very lows (1941, Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones) of Steven Spielberg. From his TV movie, Duel, all the way to Andy and Mike's *very* differing reviews of Ready Player One. They will delve deep and try and discover the identity of Sally!

A Discussion of the Partnership Between Steven Spielberg and John Williams

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

It started out as an exclusive for our YouTube channel, but something happened along the way.  This means that our Podbean (and Podcast) faithful also get Mike and Andy's quick discussion about a professional relationship that has lasted well over 40 years....the teaming of Steven Speilberg and John Williams.

In a prelude to the upcoming discussion about the movies of Speilberg, Andy and Mike count down a few of their favorite themes from a very deep well of options!

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 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 151: Nintendon’t!

Saturday, October 14th, 2017

Video game technology has certainly come a long way since its beginnings, and along that path, there have also been a large number of missteps. So break out your Atari Jaguars and Nintendo Virtual Boys as Geek Salad breaks down some video game fails in Episode 151: Nintendon't!

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine along with special guest Other Joe, Katherine's husband, and a triumphant return by original co-host, Mike C. They are pulling out all the stops to remember all the games and systems that brought us pain and misery through the years. Whether it was hours upon hours of dying in the original NES game of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles simply because my favorite turtle is Raphael, or trying to work out what kinds of drugs the designer of the Nokia N-Gage was on, they tackle the most memorable failures.

Episode 149: Duck Boobs and Bat Nipples

Saturday, September 2nd, 2017

We truly live in a golden age of Comic Book movies.  Much like the second golden age of comics in the early 1980’s, the Nerd Generation has never had such an embarrassment of riches….

 

….however, these are not the movies we’re discussing this week. We’ve again taken the votes of the Geek Salad listening audience and compiled the Top 15 Worst Comic Book Based movies of all time!  Join Joe, Andy, and Mike as they count down the head-scratchingly awful, the “How could they possibly continue to get Fantastic Four wrong???”, and Joe’s all but giving up on the DCEU…at least it’s getting harder for him to defend it!

 

Also, special thanks to David McLain, who lends his voice to discuss his choices for the mediocre movies of the genre!   Do him a solid and check out his book, The Time Traveler’s Resort and Museum, which is available to purchase at Amazon!

Episode 147: Such Heroic Nonsense!

Monday, July 10th, 2017

Back in 1984, kids had lost interest in most of the toy lines of the day.  Then, Hasbro released the Transformers line, and kids now had toys that could be cars, trucks, jets, and guns, as well as kick-ass robots! Now the Geek Salad team of Joe, Andy, and Mike discuss the toy line, as well as the multiple cartoon and comic book series and the 1986 animated movie.

 

Then, they’ll put their film school nerd caps on to discuss everything wrong with the dumpster fire that is the Michael Bay Transformers series.  It’s at this point that Andy will go off on proper character motivation and action sequencing while Joe and Mike bang their heads against the coffee table trying to figure out how, in God’s name, you can screw up the Dinobots!!!!

Episode 146: Boombox Barbecue

Monday, June 26th, 2017

Ahh, summer! Kids are out of school, adults are still at work being resentful of summer vacation, and people generally want to be outside and go on trips or just relax by the pool. On those hot summer weekends, when you're firing up the grill and need some tunes for entertainment, what are some of the best songs to crank the boombox to? Well worry no longer, for the Geek Salad crew is here to give some entries to their summer playlists with Geek Salad episode 146: Boombox Barbecue!

Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine all have very different ideas about what makes a great summer playlist, so even if one song doesn't work for you, there is sure to be a better one around the corner. Who will have the most eclectic mix? Who's playlist was primarily picked by their daughter? If you've been listening for any length of time, you probably already know the answers. But if not, then let the burgers sizzle and enjoy Boombox Barbecue! And even if you know the answers, go ahead and enjoy anyway, because... what the hell? And be sure to stick around after the conversation as Andy, Mike, and Joe give their review of Wonder Woman.
