War and Beast: Bonus Episode 12: They were like "Bah Ram You"

One of my favorite things about War and Beast is when Greg uses a random joke that I thought may have fallen flat as the episode title.  I don't follow many rules with my joke telling, but I do try to avoid repeating myself if I think people didn't hear me.  There's nothing worse than someone repeating a joke that you didn't laugh at, because it wasn't funny.  This is even more true with podcasting, since the majority of people listening to the podcast weren't there to laugh at it in the first place.

Anyway, the G1 movie is a really interesting artifact.  It has a lot of elements that are expanded on in Beast Wars and I assume beyond.  Still, it feels a little bit dated watching it now.

My copy of Beast Machines came in the mail today, and I'm excited to dive into it!

Waiting Here for Everyman - 8 - Sam Vestey

On each episode of the show, I interview regular people about the music in their life.  When I asked Sam Vestey if he would like to be on the podcast, he said he was interested, but wasn't sure if he'd be a good fit since he does not consider himself a musician.  He is, however, an actor with a rich and diverse background in musical theater.  This led to a great interview with some terrific insights.

War and Beast - Bonus 11 - The Complete Works of William Slaykspeare

We were going to do a bonus episode on The Last Knight this week, but that didn't work out...  Our format doesn't work very well for movies in general, and it really doesn't work with an extra host, poor organization, and aggressively different opinions on the subject matter.  That's all I'll say about that.

Instead, we reviewed Season 2, episode 6 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer titled "Halloween."  Every time I revisit a classic Buffy episode, it makes me want to re-watch the full series. I usually make it about 3 or 4 episodes before I get distracted, but I definitely enjoy those episodes.  Anyway, I don't have much else to say about this, except that it's also making me want to do another rogue bonus episode in the next few weeks.  Maybe a Doctor Who episode for some reason?  Who's with me?

Waiting Here for Everyman - 7 - Tony Casa

On each episode of the show, I interview a regular person about the music in their life. This week, the episode is a little different. I had two guests, Tony Casa, lead singer of a band called Zoo Trippin’, and his friend Alex Thomas. In the interest of full disclosure, I did not realize that Alex was not a part of Zoo Trippin’ when he asked if he could be on Tony’s episode. This breakdown in communication led to a weird episode. I’ve done my best to edit it down to something worth listening to, but there are some weird and abrupt edits. I hope you enjoy the episode. Check out Zoo Trippin' at All music (besides the theme). is off of Zoo Trippin's most recent album, Purple, available on itunes and spotify.
