Waifu Wars 001: Misaka vs Louise

February 16, 2018

Welcome to Waifu Wars! It's a YouTube series where me and Sirancho interview REAL ANIME NERDS and help them find the two-dimensional love of their lives. You can watch the video here.

In our first episode, which was actually made months ago but fuck it, we meet "Chuck." He's a real-life meme, as the commander of "Fort Waifu."

He loves two different fictional girls – Louise something, and Misaka something. I know nothing about them, and he seems creepily into their panties. Let's listen!

Science Friction 012: Bernie for Beastiality

October 5, 2017

THIS WEEK'S MISSION:

It's our first ever "sorry this audio is so fucked up" episode!

Short version: I was very drunk on delicious alcohol sent to me by listener Oscar from Birmingham, and did everything wrong. 

Longer version: the gain on my mic was turned up 2x. I saw my waveform as way bigger than everyone else's, but I thought, "You're a big fucking loudmouth, I'm sure this is nothing."

And boy, was it something!

Anyway: I'm sorry and I'll do better next week. Also: a listener asked for an Animorphs round, and I found a way to do one despite knowing nothing about the Animorphs. 

Got something YOU want covered on the show? Tweet it to me, @asterios! I always wanna learn more stuff – or in this case, not learn.

Science Friction 010: Husbando Pillow

August 24, 2017

 

THIS WEEK'S MISSION:

WHAT is a Husbando Pillow and WHY does Crystal Beth want one? You gotta listen to find out, which I guess you're already kinda doing if you're reading this, so hello! 

This week's mission: THE TRIAL OF RICK AND MORTY SEASON 3! Is it amazing, shitty, or more of the same? Our guests play judge, jury and executor, Judge Dredd style! Also, much like Judge Dredd, it would be better if Karl Urban was there.

AND: We play another new game, "BEST OR THE WORST," where our panelists discuss their favorite and least-favorite entries in the MCU! But first, I have to teach these fucking clowns what the MCU is. Can you believe these people?

June 1, 2017

 THIS WEEK'S MISSION:

We got some jokes about Earth: Final Conflict in this one!

Science Friction 003: What’s The Deal With Blade Runner?

May 18, 2017

 THIS WEEK'S MISSION:

The best movie in any trilogy is the third one! Return Of The Jedi had those adorable Ewoks! The Matrix Revolutions had even MORE exposition! And Back To The Future 3 had a scene where Marty McFly was hung from a tree...EXACTLY WHAT WE WANT TO SEE IN A BACK TO THE FUTURE MOVIE!

So is it any shock that our third episode is our best episode yet? In this week's adventure, Claudia Cogan, Eric Larnick, Pete the Retailer and I talk about the TV show Jeopardy for twenty minutes to figure out what we can steal from it. Then we talk about sci-fi, I guess? Whatever, just listen!
