026: The Lost Episode with Special Guest jon madsen

Going for Zero

Jon is back to discuss advertising, net neutrality, WWII, competition, and TV shows (Is Stranger Things overrated? A bit, but that's ok.) Note: A sizable portion of this episode was cut due to tone deafness. Links: A Night at the Garden - 20,000 Nazi's gathered at the Garden in NYC in 1939. It's an incredible video. Ben Thompson on Net Neutrality - Never believe what you read on the Twitter. Also his follow up piece replying to feedback from his first article. Non-profit of the week: charitywater.org

021: Two Songs with Special Guest Jon Madsen

Going for Zero

Jon and Rhett review 2 songs. This takes an hour and a half.  The idea was to pick 1 song each and do a deep dive on that song. The first 15 minutes is just small talk. At the 17 minute mark, Jon introduces Rhett's song of choice (hint: it came out in 1997). At the 51 minute mark, Rhett introduces Jon's song of choice (hint: it came out in 1990, but is definitely and 80's song). Link of the week is the Make A Wish Foundation

015: The 2017 Oscar Preview with Jon Madsen

Going for Zero

Every year, Jon hosts the best Oscar party with an accompanying game. Listen to his picks for each category (of course he picks a Star Trek movie to win one) and his tentative foods for each best picture nominee. There is also some rapid fire TV talk. 0 min - Jon's comic book 7 min - Star Trek talk (because of course) 16 min - The Oscar Game! 25 min - Jon's picks 54 min - In memorium: who will be last? 1:09 min - TV rapid fire: Black Mirror, Riverdale, GoT, Veep, and Jon gives up TV for lent 1:16 min - Trump and Russia (because overshadower) Donation of the week is the Red Cross. The flooding in the Bay Area is trivial compared to other parts of the world.

011: Airing of Grievances with Special Guest Jon Madsen

Going for Zero

Jon is back to air out his end of year grievances. Grievances include (but not limited to): parking garages, The Bachelor (aka the modern day gladiators), Shish kabobs, Christmas movies, the Russian complaint department, tribalism, people complaining about comic book movies, and work. This was a fun one, even in Rhett's weakened condition (head colds suck). Good cause for this episode: The Family Giving Tree. I've seen the work they have done first hand and it's amazing.

008: We Are Not Kingmen with Special Guest Jon Madsen

Going for Zero

Jon and Rhett talk about the 2016 US Presidential election and try to make sense of what just happened and what can be learned from it. That's pretty much the entire episode (although they talk about robots at the end and why Rhett should watch Black Mirror).

Rhett calls Jon to talk about the new podcast and explains where he got the name. Many tangents follow. Hilarity ensues. Sponsored by squaresp... just kidding.
