The Internuts Podcast! Episode 15 – Candle in the Wind

If you are reading this hastily written podcast synopsis it means that the Mayans were wrong and the world continues to exist (at least until the iPhones become sentient)!  What a relief!  What better way to celebrate your continued residence upon this mortal coil then by listening to an amiable comedy podcast!  Join Thelma Weinstein, Jim Conrad, writer/comedian Glen Tickle, and myself as we reminisce upon holidays past in a “splendidly appointed” Vermont cabin.  Will some surprise guests drop by?!?  Will anyone have a baby while recording the show?!?  Will there be an astounding number of ocean puns?!?  Listen to find out!  Happy Holidays, my dear internet friends!  I’ll meet you again in 2013!

Thank you to all my guests, both recent and over the course of 2012.  Thank you to Kevin MacLeod for composing our wonderful theme music and performing the Christmas tunes used in this episode.  Thank you to She and Him for allowing the use of their songs from A Very She and Him Christmas.  Finally, make sure to look for friend of the show Beth Beverly on AMC’s Immortalized coming in February.  That’s the last shameless plug of the calendar year!  Huzzah!!!  

UPDATE: Since recording the show, Jim and his lovely wife welcomed a happy and healthy baby to the Conrad family! Congrats, you crazy kids!

The Internuts Podcast! Episode 13 - The First Annual First Anniversary Spectacular!

It’s a celebration, bitches!  September 22nd marked the 1 year anniversary of The Internuts Podcast!  In our first year we’ve released 12 monthly episodes (not counting bonus episodes OR our sister podcast, TV Craps!).  That’s 12 hours of pure listening pleasure!  Do you know what else was 12 hours long?  The first season of M*A*S*H.  That’s right…mathematically, this show is as good as M*A*S*H.  Suck it, Alan Alda!  To illustrate just how long 12 hours is: you can get in your car in New York City, hit play on episode one, and you won’t hear silence until you reach Detroit.  Try it for yourself!*


To commemorate this special occasion, I’ve compiled a clip show that features some of my very favorite moments from the first year of the show.  If some of the clips are new to you, take some time to browse our back catalog of episodes.  Subscribe to the show through iTunes and leave us a review.  Tell a friend to listen. The Internuts Podcast is also down with youth culture because we have a Twitter account now!  Follow @InternutsChris to get updates, learn about guests, and say hello!

Making this show isn’t easy.  Each month I book guests, search out awful things on the internet, talk with record companies, and whittle down hours and hours of rambling audio.  I would like to thank my amazingly patient girlfriend for sharing me with a laptop computer for the past year.  I couldn’t have done it without you, babycakes!  Thank you to Kevin MacLeod for composing our various theme songs. Thank you to The Wayside Shakeup, Crooked Still, and Lettuce for sharing their music on the show.  I’d also like to thank all of my friends (old and new) who appeared on the podcast.  Without brilliantly funny guests like you I would be talking to myself each month like a lunatic.  Finally, THANK YOU LISTENERS!  I can’t believe how many people listen to this show.  It’s absolutely crazy but I’m not complaining.  You guys are the best.  Please keep listening and tell your friends!  There will be no new podcasts in October while I celebrate this milestone by lying on the couch for a full month and not recording any of the words I say.  Check back in November for brand new episodes of TV Craps! and The Internuts Podcast!  Enjoy the fall weather, friends, and thank you for listening!

TV Craps! Episode 2 - The Insider/Dogs in the City

Hi Gang!  Well, it's that time again.  What time, you ask?  PAY ATTENTION!  It's time for Thelma and I to watch an hour of television and report our findings to YOU!  Today we were tasked with watching The Insider and Dogs in the City on CBS.  Needless to say, we get distracted fairly quickly and spend most of the time talking about The Newsroom, True Blood, and Wes Anderson movies.  Surprisingly, I don't think this episode features any big spoilers unless you are super invested in True Blood.*  So grab a snack, kick back on the couch, and listen to TV Craps! with Chris and Thelma!

*If you are super invested in True Blood you should rethink YOUR WHOLE SITUATION.

The Internuts Podcast! Episode 10 - The Crossed Swords of Living Wizards!

It’s hard to believe, Internuts, but the Dog Days of Summer are upon us.  It seems like just yesterday we were enjoying the Otter Hours of Winter and the Marmot Minutes of Spring.  Thankfully The Internuts Podcast! has been specially formulated to be enjoyed in an air conditioned environment.  Don’t try to listen to this shit outside.  It’s hot out there, playa.  Join Jo Pincushion, Tony DiGerolamo, Karl Whitman and myself as we learn the best ways to beat the heat this summer.  Also, we talk about zombies.

Note: There are a few issues with sound quality on this episode.  We record using Skype and, dependable as it is, audio hiccups do occur.  Despite my best efforts the guests occasionally sound like Carol Anne from Poltergeist.  Please accept my deepest apologies. 

Talking points include: sitting down at concerts, sad summer Santas, CBF, Bon-O, lava monster propaganda, bold Batman opinions, stuff coming at your face, Camelbaks full of White Zin, pieces of meat, Mitt Romney's The Stand, rodent troubles, Peep Trap, believing Smash Mouth, girl farts, pickling The Beast...sexually, Mighty Morphin *White Power* Rangers, breastaurants, The Greatest Story Ever Told, and America's favorite: The Internuts Fan Fiction Corner!

Jo Pincushion is a writer, actor, blogger, singer, podcaster, and all-around busy young lady.  You can check out some of Jo’s work at GeekadelphiaGuySpeed, and Things Women Want.  You can follow Jo on TwitterFacebook, Tumblr or find out more from her website

Tony DiGerolamo is a comic book writer, screenwriter and web-presence-haver.  Tony writes for Bart Simpson and Simpsons Comics, both released by Bongo.  He has also written for Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher and Space Ghost Coast to Coast.  Tony wrote the comics Jersey DevilThe Travelers, and The Fix.  Tony is the creator of the webcomic Super Frat and the co-creator of The Webcomic Factory.  Tony has his own Wikipedia entry which I am impressed by.

Karl Whitman is a dear friend of mine but he has accomplished very little with his life.  He doesn’t even have a Wikipedia entry.  He should be ashamed of himself.

Last but not least, I’d like to give a special thank you to The Wayside Shakeup for allowing me to feature some of their music this month.  Look them up on Facebook and YouTube and follow them on Twitter.

I'll seeya back here for TV Craps! on July 15th and another episode of The Internuts Podcast! on the 31st!  Stay frosty, friends!
