Murder on the Heads Up Express
Things get spooky as our bi-hosts attempt to earn their stripes after learning of a murder on the Heads Up Express. Join our stallions as they show off their knowledge of the animal kingdom with more zebra facts than there are zebras in Madagascar. Hear tales of real people living out the actual plots of not great movies. Then we continue 2017’s mission to help Jeff understand wizards by watching Hocus Pocus. We bring back a fan favorite segment: Jeff, Movie Summarizer because Sean only saw less than five minutes of an indeterminable part of the movie. After that, prepare your ears as we discuss Candy Corn. Some say, “love conquers all,” but only Sean can conquer love. Things are said about gingerbread men that can’t be taken back and then worse things are said about Taco Bell. So listen, if you dare. Talking pointsHoofing it, Death Becomes Segment, stallions, Racing Stripes, Madagascar, Hocus Fuckus, Buttus Pocus, morality czar, the pit, on the border of food, On Blast with Sean

Get your DSL ready as we tackle the big issues like; what kind of internet access do astronauts have? If a tweet is posted on your behalf is it still yours? How much does Jeff know about Kim Kardashian West? We also tackle the final "film" in the Harry Potter series The Deathly Hallows Part 2. Harry Potter assembles a crew Danny Ocean style to break into a bank and they spend less time on it then they spend wandering in the wood in the previous movie. We ponder what an appropriate funeral would be for a house elf and what kind of magic their bones may contain. We also Skor some sweet candy. Talking Points:E.T. Tweet Home; Famously Blackberry; Blame the Old Wand Seller; Tough Guy on the Fly; "Lupin, Quote Thyself"; Hagrid Is Here Too!; Wormtail's Waifu; Cry 'Em Out

Harry Potter and the Dolph Lundgren of Romance
Wizard Year 2017 continues with Harry Potter 2: Snake Stuff. Is Harry Potter actually Lord Voldemort, a la Fight Club? Does Hagrid try to get Harry Potter killed? Just what kind of judicial system do these wizards have, anyway? The threads of Dumbledore’s plot are becoming more tangled, but we sort it out for you. Come along for a magical train ride, if some stupid elf doesn’t lock you out. Elves – always jerks. (And, in keeping with Bret and Jeff’s obsession with the love lives of pre-teens, they pitch a new podcast, Potter After Dark. Buncha pervos in this one, dawwwwgs.)

Harry Potter Begins
2017 is the Year of the Wizard, everyone knows that. Yeah, you didn't ask for it, but that's how magic works. Most of this year we're going to be getting into some eldritch magics, examining the questions we all must face at one point or another: what does it mean to be a wizard? We're starting off with some deceptively labeled "children's entertainment" in the form of Harry Potter and Sorcerer's Stone (the film). Did you know Hagrid labors under an enchantment of mind-control? That Harry Potter is a loaded gun, ready to unload at the slightest provocation? That the Houses of the school are a dystopian method of societal control? We get into some quidditch nonsense too. Join us for some arcanum obscura while we expose the dark designs behind every action in Hogwart's hallowed halls. Welcome to wizard middle school. Hope you have life insurance.

Our first guest: photographer and professional bodybuilder Bret Woodard! We treat him to some good old Massachusetts hospitality - we taunt and mock him and generally treat him poorly. I hope you like sound effects, because Bret teaches Jeff how to edit, and he also takes on the disabled. Don't worry, we get to some solid advice in this one too - how do you know your Facebook post is good? What makes a nerd? Also there's a list of parks Jeff once visited, which of course is riveting. Don't forget to stay tuned for AuntWatch 2016.
