Actual weather. We got it. Or at least, we had it ’cause it’s humid in the studio today! During this episode, we talked about my attempt to chase the remnants of Hurricane Dolores as the storm blew thru the central coast. We talked about my recent birthday celebration as well as our recent anniversary “celebration.” Then we covered Jen’s broken iMac and how we’re trying to use social media to get Apple to fix it. We responded to some listener feedback and then we finished up the show with a news article about electricity-generating water pipes.
We’re back! And our sound quality might be a little off because one of our microphone mounts broke. But we’re makin’ pods, anyway! During the show, we talked about Independence Day vs. Canadia Day. We talked about the different paper shredder classifications (Hello Kitty, wombat class, scimitar class) and why our home looked like it was being inhabited by paper hoarders. We also covered the recent Supreme Court cases that made historic decisions about health care and marriage equality.
The recording of this episode made podcasting history! We broadcasted the show live via Periscope using our audio rig, thus making us the first podcast ever to stream via Periscope with high-quality audio. During the show, we talked about the ongoing California drought and whether or not it’d be a good idea to get out now before the Droughtpocalypse happens. Next, Jen opened some birthday boxes sent to us by Tiggr. We read a little bit of listener feedback and then finished off the show with a news item about politicians who get smacked down for improperly using songs.
This podcast could be a real life changer! During the show, we talked about all of the fun stuff we did for Jen’s birthday. Including cake, cupcakes, dead animals, Greek dancers and more! I told the story of how a dream I had where a vision of my dad pretty much told me to buy a lotto ticket. So, I bought the ticket and we checked it against the winning numbers on air. Then, we wrapped up the show with a news item about racism-fueled Google Maps hacking.
After taking last week off, we’re back! And we’re introducing what is certain to be the next Internet craze: #cheesefryclub! Just upload a cheese fries photo to your favorite social net and use the #cheesefryclub hashtag and BOOM! You’re in! Jen related the story of her recent medical appointments and why she’s mad (again) at doctors. I told the story of my visit to an eye doctor’s office that was nearly impossible to find. We gave an update on our financial situation and talked about our newest Amazon wish list. We thanked Gmail for keeping us from being infected by an e-mail virus. Then, we finished off the show with a news item about how Captain Kirk is going to save California from the drought.
On this episode of Hyper Nonsense, everything’s gone wild! We talked about my solo quest to the Bed Bath & Beyond to find a kitchen scale and the aftermath that happened at Buffalo Wild Wings (they’re an Official Sponsor of Going Wild!). We made a callback to a previous episode, giving an update on our mission to find RC Cola. (In related news, Jen is obsessed with Canadia Dry ginger ale.) Then, we covered a strange web link that was (apparently) sent via text to e-mail from a mysterious source. We went over some listener feedback and finished out the show with a news article about some homeless guys who tried to sail to freedom in a stolen boat.
We thought about doing today’s show with a live audio stream. But that didn’t happen because all of the available streaming options kinda suck. Oh, well. Maybe next time. During the show, we gave an update on the whole Podcasts.com thing. Also, we talked about the game Ingress. Then, I gave my idea about how all bus stops should be turned into full-service cafes with free wi-fi. We went over some listener feedback (including a voicemail!). Next, we read a pair of local news items about a crazy guy who claimed that the Virgin Mary told him to eat his own feces (in court). Then, we wrapped things up with Jen telling us about her adventures in dishwashing.
We’re back in the studio for a “normal” episode of Hyper Nonsense. Jen’s even here, too! On this show we talked about a sketchy “new” podcasting website and why Jen is on a mission to take it down. We talked about a weird experience we had in which another podcast played a clip from one of our episodes. We sang a special song about cats. We talked about a surprise Neil Young concert we got to attend. Then, we read over some listener feedback and we finished the show with a news item about a drug-buying robotic art installation.
It’s an entirely different kind of Hyper Nonsense episode. This week, we recorded in the car on our way to Sycamore Mineral Springs resort in Avila Beach, CA. Then, we recorded some more from our hotel suite at the resort. We talked about how we decided to take this short trip to see if it might help with Jen’s ongoing allergy-driven sickness.
Jen’s not here this week. But don’t fret as we’ve got a special guest who was upgraded to guest cohost. It’s Colin from the Ourobouros Podcast! In this episode, we talked about Colin’s review and analysis of 50 Shades of Grey. Then, we put the video for Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” thru the Bechdel Test. We also discussed the current Marvel movie franchise and we finished out the show with some relaxing vibes courtesy of the Daleks.
