Flopcast episode 406! Remember when we made all the Rankin/Bass holiday cartoon characters compete in a bizarre tournament of our own design? Wasn’t that fun? And stupid?

Flopcast 404: Movies With the Mayor

Flopcast episode 404! It’s Oscar season, and we don’t care about the Oscars, but it’s an excuse for the Mayor of Chickentown to drop by and talk about the movies. However, we’re not really looking at the movies themselves; instead we’re discussing the experience of going to movie theaters. (It’s

Flopcast 403: Arisia 2020 – Space Trains and Beaks

Flopcast episode 403! Live from the horrifyingly cold mid-January Boston waterfront, it’s our annual report on our favorite local science fiction/fantasy convention, Arisia!

Flopcast 402: Memorial Show Part 2 – Squirrels in Space

Flopcast episode 402! Okay, let’s wrap up our tribute to the pop culture legends we lost in 2019. (We’ve been drinking so many shots in their memory that we’re almost out of coffee. And that frightens us.) Part 2 includes more movie stars (Peter Fonda, Sid Haig, Danny Aiello), sitcom

Two Girls, One Mars – Rusted Robot Podcast 275

Pure silliness this week as brother Robin fills in for a sick Josh. We are talking all the latest in pop culture, including some topics we rarely, if ever, touch upon. Star Trek Picard and the connection to the latest Short Trek “Children of Mars” in which we learn about

Flopcast 400: It’s 2020! Krazbit!

Yes yes yes, it’s our 400th episode! To celebrate, we’re drinking lots of black coffee. (Hey, it worked for the first 399 shows.) We’re also reviewing how we spent the stupid holidays, including a couple of festive movies (Knives Out and the new Star Wars, which needed more Bea Arthur), a couple

Flopcast episode 399! As we creep up on the end of 2019, Kevin and Kornflake relax and look back on the whole stupid year. We review our Flopcast segments (Capes or Apes!) and guests (Train Talk with Ed!), as well as concerts (Taylor Dayne! TAYLOR DAYNE!), conventions (hey, Arisia returns

Flopcast 398: Rankin/Bass Christmas Tournament Part 2 – Big Clumsy Snow Hands

Flopcast episode 398! Last week was Part 1 of our bizarre Rankin/Bass tournament, in which characters like Rudolph, Snow Miser, and Burgermeister Meisterburger competed in events like breakdancing and air hockey. The results were surprising, to say the least. This week, eight more Rankin/Bass characters are randomly drawn to do

Flopcast 397: Rankin/Bass Christmas Tournament Part 1 – Breakdancing Bumble

Flopcast episode 397! Kevin and Kornflake are taking their obsession with classic Rankin/Bass Christmas cartoons to a ridiculous new level, tournament-style. We’re randomly fishing names of Rankin/Bass characters out of reindeer-shaped coffee mugs, and determining who would win in various silly events. Who would make a better Lyft driver, Santa

Flopcast 396: Turkeyed Out

Flopcast episode 396!

Plus: Happy Birthday to Jakob Dylan of the Wallflowers, a
