Episode 30: The Mandela Effect

For this podcast episode, Morgan takes Tom through the bizarre phenomenon of The Mandela Effect, where many people have shared memories of something that never happened.

We cover various mindmelts from C3PO’s leg to ‘Stop the Pigeon’ to ‘Kazaam’ to ‘The Berenstain Bears’, all of which confused the hell out of us.

Includes a tribute to the late Sir Roger Moore.

Episode 29: Lost – The Unanswered Questions

A very disgruntled Tom takes Morgan through one of his all-time favourite TV shows: Lost, marking 7 years since it ended on May 23.

Though, you wouldn’t know it by how angry he sounds when discussing all the big questions that were never properly answered, from The Numbers to The Smoke Monster. Meanwhile, Morgan shows off his impressive Matthew Fox and Joseph Fiennes impressions. Now, where’s that DHARMA beer?

WARNING: Contains HUGE spoilers for the whole of Lost.

Episode 26: Keanu Reeves Special

No way. No way! Something a little bit different this time as Tom and Morgan look back at the career of an underrated geek hero of cinema: Mr Keanu Reeves.

We delve into the man himself, his history, his music, his not-so well received performances and in particular, these six iconic movies in Keanu’s filmography:

  • Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure / Bogus Journey
  • Point Break
  • Speed
  • The Matrix
  • Constantine
  • John Wick

Episode 25: Festive Fright Fest (Christmas Horror Movies)

Ho ho HORROR. As we missed the deadline for our own Halloween special, we’ve combined it with Christmas for a collection of the best and worst of a very particular kind of horror film: the Christmas horror.

Morgan and Tom teach each other about: Silent Night Deadly Night, Jack Frost, Black Christmas and Treevenge – and discover that the Christmas horror genre is anything but festive. Garbage Day!

There was only one episode we could for instalment number 24, and it’s our second espionage ep in a row: JACK BAUER’S 24.

And as it’s been so long since our last episode (our bad), it’s a bumper edition as we trawl through all 9 seasons (plus a mini movie and the game) of Jack’s mental adventures, nukes, moles and haughty English politicians.

NOTE: This episode was recorded before Donald Trump’s election victory.

Beer choice: Jack of Clubs
