Episode 195: PlayStation 2 - Electric Boogaloo (part 1)

Sunday, June 7th, 2020

Twenty years ago one of the most popular gaming consoles of all time was released. Over it's 13 years of production (Seriously!), thousands of games were released which kept us going back to that dual-shock controller again and again. To discuss some of their favorites, Geek Salad has returned with episode 195: PlayStation 2 - Electric Boogaloo. However, as the discussion ended up being quite extensive, this episode ended up being split into two parts.

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, Katherine, Todd, and Katherine's husband Joe, as they go over the Facebook and Twitter feedback on this topic. Turns out lots of people had favorite games from this system. From classic titles like Jak & Daxter to more obscure titles like Psychonauts, see what some of our friends and family said were their favorites. Then come back for part 2 where they discuss some of their own lists of favorite games.

Episode 193: Bryson and the Beast

Thursday, April 23rd, 2020

 It's 1991 and you've just enjoyed seeing the Disney classic, Beauty and the Beast. As the credits begin to scroll and you're getting ready to leave, suddenly you hear the song, "Beauty and the Beast", sung by Angela Lansbury in the film, however, this version is being sung by Peabo Bryson and Celine Dion. No, your ears are not playing a trick on you, that actually is a pop version of the beautiful song from the film. Disney did this to have a version of the song more amenable to being played on the radio. And they would continue to do this for fifteen animated movie songs from 1991 all the way to 2019 (and possibly beyond). Discussing these songs, for good or for ill, is the Geek Salad crew with episode 193: Bryson and the Beast.

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, Katherine, and increasingly regular guest Todd, as they go over all 15 songs and decide whether they were an upgrade to the film version, a downgrade, or just... whatever. Did Peabo really deserve to win two Grammy awards for his versions? And which song do the whole crew agree is just awful beyond measure? Listen in and find out.

Episode 191: There’s a Horse Loose in a Hospital

Tuesday, March 10th, 2020

Stand-up comedy can be truly groan and cringe-worthy when done badly. However, when done well, it can soar to the very heights of hilarity! To honor some of their favorite stand-up comedians, and to dishonor some of the worst, Geek Salad is back with episode 191: There's a Horse Loose in a Hospital.

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine, along with returning guest, former host Jim, as they deal with good comedians, bad comedians, and audio issues. Andy, Mike, and Jim had previously covered this topic back in episode 69, but will Mike find a way to bring up Mitch Hedberg despite covering him previously? Will Larry the Cable Guy end up on the best or worst list? And will Andy and Mike have to record a new ending to the episode? Listen and find out!

Episode 189: Into the Ani-Verse (Part 1)

Sunday, February 2nd, 2020

The year 2010 began a decade of some truly great animated movies. Obviously, Disney tends to dominate when it comes to animated films, but the other studios had their own share of excellent animation. So, to honor this positive trend, Geek Salad has decided to count down the top 20 animated films from 2010-2019 in episode 189: Into the Ani-Verse.

With a topic this big, the crew went a bit long (surprise, surprise), so it has been split into two parts. Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine, as well as recurring guest Todd, as they go over #20-#11 of the list. How many of the films do you think will be Disney? And what non-Disney films do you think might have snuck onto the list?

Episode 185: Are You Afraid of the Dark Shadows

Sunday, October 27th, 2019

Horror and suspense aren't restricted to just the movie screen. Throughout the years, there have been a fair number of TV shows which have tried to scare, or at least unnerve, their audience. Geek Salad is spending this year's Halloween episode by going over some of the more spooky additions to television history with episode 185: Are You Afraid of the Dark Shadows.

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, Katherine, and returning guest host, Todd, in the darker side of television programming. From "Twilight Zone" to "Are You Afraid of the Dark", from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" to "Stranger Things", they cover some of the creepier offerings to be shown on the small screen. And, of course, there will absolutely be some truly terrible puns by the Crypt Keeper.

Episode 184: The Royal Society for Putting Things on Top of Other Things

Tuesday, September 24th, 2019

50 years ago, five British comedy writers and one American animator joined forces to unleash upon the world one of the greatest comedy troupes of all time, Monty Python. To honor this legacy, Geek Salad is looking back at their favorite sketches from the show that put this group on the map, "Monty Python's Flying Circus", in episode 184: The Royal Society for Putting Things on Top of Other Things.

Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine load a huge collection of their favorite sketches into the wheel of comedy (or a free app on Andy's phone) and randomly go down the list, discussing and laughing through them all. Can anyone truly expect the Spanish Inquisition? Have you ever pined for the fjords? And what is the best method of defending yourself against a banana-wielding foe? Listen in and find out!

Episode 182: Be Excellent to Batarangs (part 1)

Wednesday, August 7th, 2019

The year 1989 ended up being one hell of a year for movies. From Tim Burton's first Batman film to Ghostbusters II, this year really gave us some true gems, as well as some lesser but still memorable hits. And here to go through some of those films is Geek Salad with episode 182: Be Excellent to Batarangs (part 1).

Join Andy, Mike, and Joe as they go overlong in discussing this banner year for films. So overlong, that the episode had to be split up into two parts. Here in part 1, the crew goes over what films were the highest grossing domestic releases for the year. They answer such questions as "Wait, numbers 3 and 4 are what now? Really?" and "Just how many of these top 10 films had Rick Moranis in them?"

Episode 177: Reboots Are Made For Walking

Wednesday, April 17th, 2019

Over the last couple years, there seems to have been an up-tick in the number of rebooted TV series popping up, especially in the area of animation. While there have certainly been a few missteps, lately, the quality really seems to be improving overall. With that in mind, what are some shows from your youth that you think could be given a quality reboot treatment? This is the question that the Geek Salad crew discuss in episode 177: Reboots Are Made For Walking.

Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine as they each talk about 5 childhood properties that they would love to be given a five-star reboot treatment. Animation and live-action shows, certainly, but you a video game might show up in the hopes of giving it the Netflix's Castlevania treatment. Also, Joe and Mike finally get an excuse to talk more about anime than any previous episode!
