Fairly Epic [Popcorn Corner, The D-Pad, Freestyle]

Episode 4

Podcasts are hard to make apparently, so this episode is super late but we've got a new segment and some really fun stuff. This month's episode features: Popcorn Corner, The D-Pad, and Freestyle.

Popcorn Corner ( 9:53 ) - Euan and Spanky use this segment to talk about movies of all sorts; old and new. This month we discuss the ever-topical Looney Tunes: Back In Action.

The D-Pad ( 48:55 ) - Video games! We recorded our thoughts for E3 and they're completely irrelevant now but hey, everything we talk about is irrelevant so we stuck it in anyway!

Freestyle ( 1:53:29 ) - "The Generic Podcast Segment". Euan and Spanky usually do a pretty good job of having a purpose for their segments. Spanky usually ignores it and talks about Kingdom Hearts. This segment is specifically designed to have no purpose, so they can't possibly get sidetracked (that doesn't mean they won't try, though).

Angelic Mr. Bean [Diplomatic Deception, Stream Crossers, Popcorn Corner]

Episode 3

Trying some new things this month, also a lot of movie talk. This month's episode features: Diplomatic Deception, Stream Crossers and Popcorn Corner.

Diplomatic Deception ( 4:20 ) - It's our quiz-show style game where we try to bamboozle the other host with facts (or lies) about our home countries. This month we played with the formula a bit to see what directions we could take the show in the future.

Stream Crossers ( 42:20 ) - Our first edition of Stream Crossers in which we pitch crossovers! This time we see Mr. Bean as an ever-evolving final boss style of deity as well as Kingdom Hearts, already known for being a crossover series, making a crossover appearance with a childrens show which also likes to dive into crossovers. It's crossover-ception?!

Popcorn Corner ( 1:10:18 ) - Euan and Spanky use this segment to talk about movies of all sorts; old and new. We did a double feature this time around, enjoy our discussions of Pacific Rim Uprising and Ready Player One.

Cartoons and Heartbreak [The D-Pad, Cartoon Crunch, Popcorn Corner]

Episode 2

In this episode there is laughter, there is loss, and there is heartbeak. This month's episode features: The D-Pad, Cartoon Crunch, and Popcorn Corner.

The D-Pad ( 4:18 ) - "Video games are bad!" exclaims Spanky. Yep, this segment is about video games, a thing which Spanky has experience with but generally doesn't like except Paper Mario for the Nintendo 64, which is the only good game (don't take Spanky too seriously, he's silly). This episode's game is Life Is Strange and Life is Strange: Before the Storm.

Cartoon Crunch ( 55:42 ) - Cartoons! Pretty simple, this segment is just us talking about a cartoon or maybe several cartoons. This month we're discussing Craig of the Creek.

Popcorn Corner ( 1:25:56 ) - Euan and Spanky use this segment to talk about movies of all sorts; old and new. This is the segment where heartbreak happens. We discuss Avengers: Infinity War.
