The Wizard of Oz! With Jenny Brezinski, Ela Darling and Wes Weitzenhoffer

bad sloth

When I decided to do an episode solely on one film there really was no discussion with the other munchkins in my brain as to what that film would be. The Wizard of Oz stands the test of time in both its story and its music but what happened behind the scenes could be a movie on its own. Joining me in the land of Oz are Jenny Brezinski, Ela Darling, and Wes Weitzenhoffer. We go into our own theories on the meaning of the film as well as reveal some fun facts that may make you appreciate the movie a little more. Plus it wouldn't be bad sloth if we didn't get off topic here and there:  Ela Darling fills us in on what a "Comic-con orgy" is; we dissect the wreck that is Oz the Great and Powerful; and we get into a heated debate on whether kids films from the 80's are more creative and darker than the films of today. Oh, and Wes talks about Dorothy's menstruation, so you have that to look forward to.

Geeketeria #1 With Ela Darling, Steve Moulton and Wes Weitzenhoffer

bad sloth

Welcome to the first ever Geeketeria episode of the "Geekie Award" winning bad sloth podcast! Geeketeria episodes are all geek talk, no Wikipedia, and now with 100% more porn stars then ever before! The "Bones" of porn, Ela Darling, bares her inner geek and fingerblasts the porn star stereotype by showing off her big brain. Steve Moulton, fresh off his inspiring role as "Pepperjack" in Sharknado, fingerblasts the actor stereotype by having valid opinions. And a Geeketeria episode wouldn't feel complete without Wes Weitzenhoffer, who fingerblasts. Inside you'll find less offensive material about Comic-Con, film, TV, new game consoles, and I reveal how you can buy actual props from films like E.T., Star Wars and even Pee Wee Herman's bicycle! Nerdgasms galore!

Time Travel! With Dave Ross and Wes Weitzenhoffer

bad sloth

Wikipedia Brown was murdered! The 25th century podcast bad sloth emerged from a worm hole and took over its identity right in time for the Time Travel episode. Dave Ross, borrowed from Nerdist podcast Sex Nerd Sandra, joins us for the geekiest episode ever. So geeky that it encroaches on nerd territory and melds itself into some form of gerd, which we then had to euthanize. "What does Oedipus have to do with time travel," asked no one ever. To answer that we have Wes Weitzenhoffer back on the show! Drink a shot every time Wes says, "whatever happened, happened," and you'll be dead of alcohol poisoning toot sweet. Listen to us confuse ourselves into a time loop; add a little Quantum Leap, Back to the Future, Looper and Time Cop talk; then mix with a pinch of Wes showing his pure hatred for Chloe Moretz and you have an episode half worth listening to!
