Rank #2: M is for the Matrix

Podcast cover
Read more
Red Pill anyone?

In the first episode of 2018 Mike & Rob take a drunken stumble down the rabbit hole and explore the dark, dystopian alternate reality that is the Matrix. With a whole new "thing" we're starting for this year, fear not, the usual level of ribald silliness and your favourite segments are still there.

So what are you waiting for? Give it a listen - we guarantee its more interesting and entertaining than both of the matrix sequels combined!

Rank #3: K is for Karate Kid

Podcast cover

Wax on, wax off! After a shocker of a poll, Mike & Rob suit up and head to the dojo (pub) to discuss the seminal, martial arts coming of age movie Karate Kid. With the usual plot dissection, some superb karatriva and one star reviews from Donald Trump, it only remains to be seen if Mike will sweep the leg and if Rob will ever work out how to get all this wax off!

Rank #4: D is for Databases

ALL YOUR DATABASE ARE BELONG TO US! Join Mike & Rob as they skip lightly through the depths of the database. From early efforts through to hipster NoSQL via some crazy stats, very poor maths skills, even worse fish puns, and the inevitable bag o d#cks.

Recorded al fresco at the Cock & Bottle it may seem like a meandering mess but there is a point … honest … if only we could remember it.

Geo all the things!

It's about time the tech segment escaped our humble atmosphere and made it to outerspace. And with that in mind join us for an orbital tour of all things geo. GPS, Geo Caching, Geo Fencing, Geo Cities ... er ... yes. Anyway, give it a listen, it really is out of this world!

Rank #6: I is for Indiana Jones

Podcast cover
Read more
I was always going to be an Indy movie. Trouble is, all three* are so good we simply couldn't choose between them! So we didn't and instead introduce a near feature length, extended episode in which Mike dons his fedora, Rob grabs his bullwhip (not a euphemism) and they set off across the globe in search of fortune and glory ... and beer.

* Yes there are technically four movies but Rob refuses to acknowledge Crystal Skull as anything other than a bad dream. We've tried talking to him about it but he refuses, muttering something about "the sanctity of original trilogies" and "f#cking George Lucas"

Rank #8: B is for Blade Runner

Podcast cover
Read more
This month, we’re talking about a film beloved by both Mike & Rob – Blade Runner. Recorded in a tiny corridor of a pub, we get deep into the underlying meanings of the movie, discuss the risks of product placement in “near future” scenarios, celebrate the sheer multitude of versions and resort to name calling to describe those who haven’t seen it yet.

Oh and we promise not to do another Ridley Scott next month … honest.

Rank #9: M is for Magnetic Storage Media

Podcast cover

Let's get it out of the way, there are a lot of "floppy" jokes in this episode.

But then there's also a lot of stuff on just how computers store data, from the drum to the modern drive. Mike gets quizzed on a range of real of fake storage terms in Disk or D*ck and Rob tries valiantly not to lose it completely when discussing micro floppies (he fails).

In another classic case of "it's more interesting than it sounds ... honest" Mike and Rob crack their knuckles and hunt peck their way through a  surprisingly detailed look at the world of keyboards.  From the humble typewriter, to the modern day of mind reading data entry (with a surprising number of w*nking jokes) join us as we literally run down A - Z of computer data entry.

Rank #11: E is for Emoji

Just what is the plural of Emoji … Emojis, Emojie? Who knows, and who cares.

In this months tech segment, Rob tells Mike way more about Emoji than anyone would care to admit to knowing. Pictograms, Purple Egg Plants and Poop all feature, along with a healthy dose of innuendo, more than enough to put a smiley on your face.

Rank #12: J is for James Bond - Part 1

Podcast cover
Read more
We couldn't not do James Bond when we got to J but perhaps we could have not done it in a cocktail bar.

A double feature this month as Mike and Rob don black tie, shake up a martini and stare down the barrel of 24 films! Split over two halves with three bonds per half, we include Amazon 1 Star reviews and, in place of the dedicated tech segment, a review of each Bond's gadgets.

In this first half, we cover Connery, Lazenby, and Moore. In the second, Dalton, Brosnan and Craig. All the while sipping martini's, vespas and pretty much anything else JB is purported to have drunk.

It's long, it gets messy, but it's pretty damn funny!

Rank #13: F is for Face Off

Podcast cover
Read more
It’s a modern day classic, John Woo, Nicolas Cage, John Travolta, some other people. 20 years old and it’s barely aged (a lot like Cage tbh).

Mike takes great delight in dissecting this particular piece of 90’s action awesomeness, although he does have a strange obsession with working out just how far the “swap” went. It’s fast, it’s frantic, it’s funny… it’s Face Off!

Rank #14: F is for the Future (According to Rob)

Podcast cover
Read more
Ok so we may have been a little ambitious here. Attempts to explain the future (all of it) after a few beers resulted in ... something.

Starting with the Industrial Revolution, Rob takes Mike on a magical meandering ride through the present and into the great beyond. Expect the usual level of confusion, confoundment and crass combobulation.

Rank #16: N is for Naked Gun

Podcast cover
Read more
It's a classic comedy but is there more to 1988's Naked Gun than just puns and slapstick? Mike & Rob hit the mean streets in search of some answers and along the way find some one star reviews par excellence, some sequels that are just sub par and come to an agreement on just where this Zucker brothers films sits in the general scale of things.

Rank #17: H is for Hackers

As requested by our producer, we couldn't not cover Hackers when we got to the H episodes. Beloved by many (including all of the WDAWKT team) this piece of pure 90's nonsense proves itself to be a bit better than Mike thought it was going to be... high praise indeed!

Of course there are some who don't like it - 1* Reviews has them covered but for the rest we'd suggest you grab your pager, strap on your 'blades, and prepare to HACK THE PLANET!

Rank #18: H is for Hacking

Podcast cover

Firstly, this is a long episode - sorry about that but we couldn't possibly fit the entire topic of Hacking in to anything under an hour.

Join Mike & Rob as they explore the murky underworld of computer security through the history of phreaking, hacking and modern cyber warfare. Reviewing some notable hacks in recent years and casting a thought to what could possibly be next. Will Mike put on his white hat? Or will the dark side prove too tempting? You'll have to listen to find out!

Podcast cover

Welcome back! Spring has finally sprung here in Jersey and so we invite you to join us, Rob & Mike, on our first (dry) alfresco recording of the movie segment of We’re Drunk & We Know Things!

This month’s movie is Casablanca so listen in for 45 mins of insightful review, comedic commentary, occasional swearing, some little people and a lot of spoilers … for a movie that was made in 1942 so if you haven’t seen it yet you’ve only got yourself to blame.
