Rank #1: Black Holes

Podcast cover
Read more

In this month's deep dive, we're heading over the event horizon of one of the weirdest celestial phenomena known to humankind, the BlackHole.

From the early theoretical roots to the first ever photo of an actual black hole, we manage to make it through nearly an hour of deep scientific debate without making too many "hole" jokes and without losing Mike!

This month on We're Drunk & We Know Things, we're reaching for the stars as we blast off and float through the epic wonder that is, Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. From concept through to delivery, with a load of science and some of the most well-funded corn ever we hope you can join us as we wriggle down the wormhole of mega sci-fi and make an inordinate amount of black hole puns.

Off the back of our first animated film episode, we're taking the deep dive into the world of cel animation! Mike & Rob roll up their sleeves, grab some cellulose and try not to blow themselves up as they explore the history, techniques and key players in the world of hand drawn animation. From the zoetrope to modern CGI cel shading with a healthy dose of Disney (obvs), we hope you'll join us on our 24fps adventure.

It's finally happened... we're talkin' 'bout SkyNet! Hot on the heels of our T2 extravaganza we've got our first deep dive of the new season and it's time for Mike and Rob to search for some intelligence in the podcast, Artificial in this case which seemed our best hope. 

So come with us on a journey through humankind's search for and quest to create artificial thought ... despite the fact that computers weren't really good enough for most of the time!

We’re back! No more alphabet, no more poll, just an epic movie to launch our second season: Terminator 2: Judgement Day!

Rank #6: Z is for Zip

Podcast cover
Read more
It's not how big it is ... er yeah. So rounding out the alphabet and we're talking Zip files and other compression algos in this month's rather technical tech segment.

Including a brief history, an almost certainly incorrect break down of how compression works and a lot of trolls (of the patent variety) it's a nice enough way to end the season. And let's face it, it's the only tech thing beginning with Z of any note.

Rank #7: Z is for Zodiac

Podcast cover
Read more
Late 1960's San Francisco and there's a serial killer on the loose! That's right, we've decided to end on a rather dark note as we slide into the obsession filled, decade spanning epic that is, David Fincher's Zodiac.

Of course it's based on a true story but this doesn't stop Mike & Rob bringing their own version of inanity and slight degrees of fanboism to this sprawling review of all 157 minutes of this modern classic.

Rank #8: Y is for social networks of YesterYear

Podcast cover

Tenuous? Yes but this was easily the best of a bad bunch. And if you have ever wondered what happened to the guy who founded MySpace, wether Bebo is still a thing or why it is that Facebook is just so damn popular then this is the episode for you.

From the early 90s through to the upcoming wave of anti-social networks Rob and Mike skip merrily through a land of tribalism, hate speech, fake news and cat gifs ... so, you know, the internet.

Rank #9: V is for V for Vendetta

Ooh there's trouble brewing in dystopian, facist London! And there's trouble brewing between Rob & Mike! This month we’re donning our Guy Fawkes masks and remember remembering the joy that is 2005’s V for Vendetta. Spoiler alert, Mike doesn’t like it cos it’s based on a comic book that changed his life or some such.

Rank #10: O is for Oceans Eleven

"The 14000 block of Las Vegas Boulevard. Otherwise known as the Bellagio, the Mirage, the M.G.M. Grand. Together, they're the three most profitable casinos in Las Vegas... And we're going to rob it."

That's right, we back for O and that means we're running the long con and discussing Ocean's Eleven (the 2001 edition). Join us as we pull of a Boesky, a Jim Brown, a Miss Daisy, two Jethros and a Leon Spinks, not to mention the biggest Ella Fitzgerald ever! Oh and we discover an amazing fact about Andy Garcia, Mike's deep loathing for Julia Roberts (which can only be hiding his even deeper obsession), and everything you've come to expect from a classic WDAWKT film segment.

Rank #11: O is for Onion Routing

Podcast cover

It's official, Mike & Rob really know their onions! Or they should after this month's tech segment which is all about Onion Routing (aka TOR) and the dark web.

Containing considerably less paranoia than you'd expect (possibly because we've become desensitised over the last 14 months) we explore the history of this project, privacy concerns, the Silk Road, social impact and the unbelievable discovery that Mike has never seen The Princess Bride!

A movie that requires no introduction and didn't really need a podcast, this month, Mike and Rob try to avoid things that go bump in the night and take a tour round New York with the Ghostbusters! Expect the usual sillyness, 1 Star reviews and a mass of misty nostalgia.
