24. LIVE from CaveCon Part 2

SPECIAL GUESTS: Josh Roberts (The Comic Cave, Cavecon), Ming Chen (Comic Book Men, I Sell Comics) Here's the REST of our live podcast from CaveCon 2018. This one is shorter and is mostly about two great interviews. One of our guests is from TV. Which one? Who's to say? Also...we recorded this on International Podcast Day! So that's pretty cool! Josh Roberts talks logistics of running a convention! Ming Chen talks sleazy Springfield, MO strip bars! He also shares his beautiful vision of the future of podcasts. Also I think there's something about cosplay turf wars in there. Music by moreofthat.bandcamp.com ...

36. Bible Hero Samson with Ass Jawbone and Philistine-Murdering Action

The Arnett brothers (Josh and Jon) are back and you know what that means--time to discuss RELIGION and CHRISTIAN TOYS! It's way funnier and less traumatic this time, I promise. Warning though: Josh is drunk as SHIT throughout. We all discuss our megachurch woes, and the bible action figure=selling church giftshop. Adam gets a Mezco Gomez (minus middle finger) and Blake gets his Billie Eilish grail. We crack the Haslab Conspiracy WIDE open. Everyone gets HORNY horny. Blake explains Taylor Boxes, the new cardboard collectible all Swifties should know about. We try to play "OUR MILLION DOLLAR TOY IDEA" -- a new game in which Blake invents Slime Bags and the gang brainstorms REAL Fortnite for kids! PLUS much much more. Just listen, please. Please rate, review, and subscribe. Theme song by More of That (everywhere you stream music) CUT HIS MIC! ...

35. 1 Man, 1 Muppet, 4 Life

Hey it's somewhere near our two-year anniversary of the podcast and we forgot to mention that--but have a cool new episode anyway! This time we visit Blake's Blockbuster Zone, a hot new movie podcast-within-a-podcast. Some great summer films about toys out there y'all. Warning: TOY STORY 4 TOYLERS. Also... Review of Worthy Captain America. Hasbro crowdfunded Cookie Monster and other life-size muppets. Speaking of muppets, are they a "huge turn-off"? Conan O'Brien "legally" marries his Funko Pop!s. Which toy would you marry? GLOW IN THE DARK figures! Including MOTU's Scareglow, Swamp Thing, Ghostbusters, Homer Simpson, and more! Mini Brands Chase Pez. WHAT WAS YOUR WOODY? Crash Test Dummies and Boom, My Forever Pal. Blake surprises Adam with an insane purchase of Funko's DC Primal Age Batcave and figures to boot. Or is it Savage World? Hard to say. Don't toy shop drunk. And finally, BLAKE BUYS A TOY LIVE ON AIR! ...
