The Running Man (1987) w. Joel Taras

Ep. 87

The 2019-set movies keep coming with the Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle The Running Man (1987). Joel Taras is here to talk about it!

We discuss how close we are to having a national deathmatch gameshow in our own timeline, because we’re really not that far off. Also lots of sweet Arnie-isms, quaint 80’s technology, and how – once again – scifi from the late 80’s really hit the nail on the head when it comes to assuming we’d be in a dystopia by now.

CW: sexual violence – Because it’s an 80’s action movie, there’s 2 scenes in particular that revolve around (the threat of) assault that we discuss.

54 – Chef’s Table: Nancy Silverton

We return to Chef’s Table to see what Nancy Silverton is all about; apparently it’s doing a whole lot of different things. We explore bread-making obsessions, coaxing flavour out of ingredients, and grilled cheese nights!

Plus we provide some channel updates right at the top of the episode, so don’t miss that.

TV Series: Episode 17

Mikael is not here this week so it’s up to Tessa, Brayden, and Jarred to wade into the next episode in the Animorphs TV Series: “Not My Problem.” Incidentally, this is also the thought going through Mikael’s head.

Get ready for some more Ellimist tomfoolery as Jake jumps back in time to a world where he never became an Animorph. Get ready for some bad twists!

53 – The Founder (2016)

We watched 2016’s The Founder and now we’re talking about it!

Sophie & Mitch go back to a ‘simpler’ time, when a man like Ray Kroc could get away with pretty much anything – including swindling a pair of burger bros out of a multi-billion dollar business, while still keeping their namesake. We talk about this, deliciously shot burgers, and protagonist sympathies & so much more.

TV Series: Episode 16

We’re back for more punishment as we dig into Episode 16 of the Animorphs TV Series: “Tobias.” Ironically, this episode is not just about Tobias, despite the title.

We delve into some classic bullying, some asinine Andalite antics, and some depressing teenage realities as we try to make sense of this seemingly pointless episode.

84 – Cosplay w. Ashley ‘Acey’ Redwine

Ashley ‘Acey’ Redwine is here to tell us all about cosplay!

What is cosplay, how does one go about choosing a character to go as, and how do you create those lovely toys? We run through Acey’s cosplay history to see what challenges she overcame and which ones became personal favourites.

52 – Food on the Go (2017)

Sophie & Mitch go over a delightful little documentary about Italian food: Food on the Go (E il cibo va) (2017).

How does food travel and how does it change when it does? What happens to Italian cooking and techniques when they immigrate to the United States or to Argentina? All of these questions are at play in this week’s episode.

TV Series: Episodes 14 and 15

It’s with heavy hearts that we once again revisit the Animorphs television series, picking up where we left off at episodes 14 and 15 titled “The Leader.” Once again, we’ve brought Jarred along for the ride and this time we force him to do all the summarizing so we don’t have to relive this any more than we have to.

Stay tuned for discussion about something being so hot it feels cold (or vice versa?), Marco’s mom being Janice from Friends, and how useless Cassie and Rachel are at jumping tiny gaps.

51 – Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Heat

We conclude our adventure with Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat – appropriately enough – with an episode all about Heat.

Samin travels back to her roots in Berkeley, California to re-learn the lessons cooking with open flames teach. We look into oven science, cook with moms, and have people draw why we’re in the kitchen.

50 – Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Acid

Finally on track with the titling in Netflix’s Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. Episode 3 is all about Acid

We’re visiting the Yucatan in order to see all the different things to use acid for. With a wide variety of citrus, a surprising type of honey, and a few other acidic ingredients, Samin Nosrat shows off how all of this balances your food.
