Sauce Packet: Star Trek Discovery


As we consume bad movies for Film Frown, palate cleansers are very useful. Paul and Chris get together to discuss the latest incarnation of Star Trek in a short episode we like to call a Sauce Packet! SPOILERS AHEAD! In other words, don’t engage unless you are out of star dock.

Pumpkin Town


What in the name of Zork? Long story fake, Paul found a genie and got his dream of being turned into a computer. Unfortunately, it was an evil genie so Paul was not turned into a gorgeous Macbook, instead he’s an Apple IIe. Join Daniel J. Hogan, Arturo Vergara, and co-host Chris as they abuse computer Paul by loading up a text adventure game that forces him to say “I do not understand ____,” over and over. Also, stick around for the bodacious surfer, brah.

Thanks for choosing to examine our Halloween special. Be sure to send love to our guests who helped make this possible, Arturo and Dan. Thanks again to our rad patrons! Their spooky support helped us get the Pumpkin Town game and some fun sound effects! You can give here.

Thor's Skillet


Our conversation with Stump Kitchen was one of those chats where we lose track of time. Guest Alexis and the hosts were sad to see the time was up. That just means we’ll have to have Alexis back or convince her to watch a bad movie for Film Frown. This episode revolves around producing the cooking show, dealing with mental health, eating a pre-dinner when you’re making risotto, sweat pant shopping and stump squeezing.

Subscribe to Stump Kitchen and support our incredible new friend Alexis. Chris tried those peanut butter cups, and yeah, throw money at the Stump Kitchen Patreon because, delicious! Follow her on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. The one stop link is Thanks for listening! You rock! Oh, and let’s find Alexis a gluten-free vegan hot dog!
