The Flopcast exclusive 007 for patreon

Live from Chickentown, Kevin and Kornflake sip nasty black coffee and talk about silly & geeky things.

Frequent subjects include: Saturday morning cartoons, Dr. Demento-style funny music, TV and movies of the 1970s and 1980s, comic books, classic video games, and, uh, chickens. (We like chickens.) There’s also lots of convention talk, as we regularly attend DragonCon, MarsCon, and other nerdy gatherings. We’re frightened and confused. Join us!

Flopcast 476: Yoink!

Flopcast episode 476! For the first time in a billion years, we have actual live human guests at Chickentown Studios! (Remember talking to people not on Zoom? Yeah, it’s weird.) Brittany and Martha are here, from our sister podcast But First, Let’s Talk Nerdy! We’re celebrating their first year of podcasting

Flopcast 475: The Backs of Life 4 – Jo’s Cousin

Yes, we’re still examining every “backdoor pilot” episode of The Facts of Life, and we’ve arrived at “Jo’s Cousin,” which features, you know, Jo’s cousin. She’s 14-year-old aspiring mechanic Terry, played by the star of Kornflake’s beloved Anne of Green Gables! We also meet Terry’s angry father (you know him from Soap and Battlestar Galactica),

Flopcast 474: The Two Words Are… Naked Skating

Flopcast episode 474! We’d been meaning to do a roller-skating-themed show for years, and it’s finally here, in convenient Top 4 ½ List format! We’re listing our favorite roller-skating scenes and characters from movies and TV of the last half century. Plenty of skating humans, of course, but also some

Flopcast 473: Muffins for Heatmiser

Flopcast episode 473! As a follow-up to our recent look at the Boston music scene of the 80s, let’s move on to the 90s! And let’s also move slightly south, to Rhode Island! (State motto: We’re tiny, but we’re also quite odd.) Another special guest is here too: filmmaker (It’s

Flopcast 472: Not Fit For Human Listening

Flopcast episode 472! If you were a 70s/80s kid who wanted to know what was really going on, you ordered Dynamite magazine through your school book club. Today we’re flipping through the December 1979 issue of Dynamite, with Steve Martin on the cover. And hey, Steve’s first (and come on, best) movie The Jerk premiered

Flopcast 471: The Flop of Boston

Flopcast episode 471! Happy Anniversary to us! (If you can hear Barney Rubble singing, our work is done.) We’ve been Flopcasting for nine long silly years, and we’re celebrating with a special guest: Earth Station One co-host (and Tiki Zombie writer/publisher) Mike Gordon! Mike is from Massachusetts just like us, so we

Flopcast 470: The Backs of Life 3 – The Academy

Flopcast episode 470! Our ongoing analysis of every “backdoor pilot” episode of The Facts of Life continues, and we’re creeping back to March 1982. “Pac-Man Fever” was on the radio, Porky’s ruled the box office, and our Facts of Life girls met the boys at Stone Academy. The plan was to launch a spinoff series set

Flopcast 469: Brannock or Panic

Flopcast episode 469! Time for some bike talk, because spring is here, and we’ve taken to the mean streets of Chickentown on our shiny new bikes, like Kevin Bacon in Quicksilver and Nicole Kidman in BMX Bandits. We’re not quite as accessorized as Pee Wee Herman, but hopefully we’ll find some goofy license

Flopcast 468: Love Boat FlopFight Part 2 – Bunny Boats

Flopcast episode 468! Time to wrap up our latest exciting and stupid FlopFight tournament! Only one member of the Love Boat cast shall survive! Your classic Love Boat crew is here, of course, including Isaac the bartender, Julie the cruise director, and Gopher the… whatever it is that Gopher does. A few lesser known

Flopcast 467: Love Boat FlopFight Part 1 – Mermaid Mummies

Flopcast episode 467! Come aboard, we’re expecting you for a Love Boat edition of our ridiculous tournament, the FlopFight! And we’re joined by a special guest who knows a thing or two about ridiculous tournaments: DragonCon American Sci-Fi Classics Track Director Joe Crowe! With Joe on board, we’ll figure out which Pacific

Flopcast 466: Still Preoccupied With 1985

Flopcast episode 466! It’s another “66” episode, which always reminds us of V66, Boston’s late great 1980s music video channel. (You’ve all seen the documentary Life on the V, right? RIGHT?) This time we decided to party like it’s 1985 and watch a bunch of music videos from the V66 era.

Flopcast 465: Here’s Johnny and Johnny and Johnny

Flopcast episode 465! For no good reason, the name “Johnny” is the subject of our latest Top 4 ½ List. (Has it been a slow week around here? What do you think?) We have characters named Johnny from movies, TV, songs, and even more goofy DC comic books. There might
