Flopcast episode 199! This week we’re talking with novelist (The Perfect Comeback of Caroline Jacobs), storyteller (The Moth), and podcaster (Boy vs. Girl) Matthew Dicks! Matthew and Kevin grew up in the same tiny town, rode the same stupid school bus, and were the only non-girl flute players in the
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 episode 198! Because we tend to get everything wrong, we have some corrections from a previous Flopcast, mostly involving astronauts and Monkees; a recent benefit show by Dar Williams and Catie Curtis turned wonderfully Schoolhouse Rock-ish; the Fitchburg Art Museum has an amazing new exhibit by our friends from
Flopcast episode 197! Kevin and Kornflake celebrate 75 years of the King of Atlantis, the guy in the scaly orange shirt (perhaps not the fanciest of superhero costumes), Aquaman! Yes, Aquaman has been talking to the fish since 1941, he’s a founding member of the Justice League of America, and
SCIFI NEWS FOR THIS WEEK IS BACK WITH A VENGEANCE!!! Right as I was going to record my show, there was news about a new Battlestar Galactica movie for the big screen. Being a BSG fan, I had to throw in my two cents on the matter.
Flopcast episode 196! Kevin and Kornflake check out the new MarsCon Dementia Track fundraiser album, and you should too. (Warning: Contains goofy songs by The Sponge Awareness Foundation, and lobster songs by Kornflake!) Also: Astronaut Cady Coleman has a space flute, we have mixed feelings about a new ninth planet
Flopcast episode 195! Kevin and Kornflake are full of excuses this week, because somebody decided “excuses” should be the subject of this week’s Top 4 ½ List. (We won’t name any names, except for the name “Kornflake.”) Some of our favorite excuses come from Steve Martin, Marcia Brady, the Blues
Flopcast episode 194! After a three year absence, Kevin and Kornflake went creeping back to Arisia! (A science fiction convention on the Boston waterfront in mid-January… this is how we eliminate the weaker nerds from the pack.) Kornflake was there on Saturday, and enjoyed a game of Munchkin, a Princess
Flopcast episode 193! We have a quick show for you this week, because we’re sleepy, and Kornflake keeps spilling the coffee. In our “Chickens in the News” segment: It has been suggested that in order to sustain the human population, we should shrink everyone down to the size of chickens.
Flopcast episode 192! It’s time for a Flopcast-style look back at those we lost in 2015. The Mayor of Chickentown joins Kevin and Kornflake as we recall some of our favorite recently-departed actors, musicians, writers, artists… and maybe even the guy who invented plastic pink flamingos. Including: Stars from The

Flopcast episode 190! It’s our final Flopcast of 2015! Almost time to flop over and relax! We celebrate with the return of Kornflake’s regular National Whatever Day segment, in which we learn why paper snowflakes can be disgusting. (You’re welcome!) Then Kevin reports on last month’s Super Megafest convention, featuring
Flopcast episode 189! Happy Holidays from The Flopcast, where we hide our toys inside rubber chickens, so the Burgermeister won’t find them. This week Ed joins us again, to talk about yet another pre-Sponge Awareness Foundation project: his goofy 1989 college band, Wet Paint! We look back on this short-lived
