Jake and Tom Conquer the World (tv & film)

Jake is away this week so he can celebrate his 40th birthday.  So Tom decided to break out the big guns:
Joining him once again for this episode is Matt from the dearly departed "Couch Party" podcast, as well as the legendary Ranty Bastard, former host of the greatly missed "Retail Rant".

Today, the guys are delving deep into the internet and are settling the stupidest debates the can find. 

"How stupid?", you ask? 

They're stupid enough to wonder if a hot dog is a sandwich.  They ponder the idea of cereal being a soup.  They even try to figure out whether a baby can be considered a vegan if they're fed breast milk.

Y'see...?  It really does get that stupid.

But it was also a helluva lotta fun.  So hit the play button & get ready to laugh at three supposedly grown men as they argue the merits of proper toilet paper etiquette.

This is a pretty fun episode -

After a brief roundup of geek news & Jake's rebuttal on an episode he had to miss, the guys continue their series of odd chats.

In this one, the guys imagine a conversation held between their current selves, as well as their teenage & elderly doppelgangers. 

How would these various versions of themselves get along?  What would they warn their younger selves about?  What technology would they give them hints about?  And more importantly, who would get slapped first?

Jake is outta town this week, so Tom has recruited his good friends from the dearly departed Couch Party Podcast to help him out!

Listen in as Tom, Matt & HAB recount the hedonistic days of their youth, before diving into the latest geek headlines.  Topics covered include whether or not the "Star Wars" franchise is in crisis mode and if Kathleen Kennedy should removed as the head of Lucasfilm, who the hell thinks a Morbius movie is a good idea and can Sony's "Spider-Verse" be saved at this point, and is DC's streaming service gonna be another letdown, and can these old men deal with today's comic book stores?

And, of course, since this is a full blown Couch Party reunion, the show just wouldn't be complete without a look into America's own Thunderdome, as the guys go over bizarre headlines from HAB's adopted homeland of Florida!

Taking the ball from last week and running with it, Jake and Tom are having another edition of their "Campfire Chats".  Only this time, they brought in friend of the show & all-around great guy Nick Haskins, host of the amazing movie podcast, "Epic Film Guys" and the audio culinary tour de force, "RestauRant"

This week, the discussion is centering around something that most of have most likely thought of before: What if certain celebrities didn't die when they did?  

So listen in as Jake, Tom, Nick (and special guest Randy from the world famous, "Miserable Retail Slave" podcast) sort through their favorite what if scenarios involving dearly departed legends from the world of entertainment.

Jake and Tom decided to try something a little different this week.  Instead of their usual topics which center around the world of comics, movies, television and whatnot, they decided to engage in a series of what they like to call "campfire chats". 

We've all been there.  We get together with our friends, drinks are being passed around, and we let the conversation take us where it may

Some of this chart are pretty standard for this podcast, such as the dangers of Disney becoming too big of a company, or if the world really needs this many "Star Wars" movies.  Other subjects, well...  They're kinda oddball, but they're still a lotta  fun.

"How oddball", you ask?  Well, the guys go on to debate such topics as what kind of real world effects teleportation would have, and whether or not film and television actors are becoming an obsolete profession.

Like we said, it's kind of an oddball show, but the guys had a lotta fun recording it!  In fact, if you wanna suggest topics of your own, feel free to submit them to drunkendorkpodcast@gmail.com

Jake and Tom are kinda winging it this week, and have decided to do a little bit of housecleaning with some of the subjects they've been meaning to talk about.

This includes a brief review of the Star Wars spinoff, "Solo", an even briefer review of "Deadpool 2", the most recent behind the scenes shakeups at the DCEU, what they're hoping for out of "Wonder Woman: 1984", "Green Lantern Corps" "Blackhawk", the individual "Joker" movies, as well as the recent rumors about DC's streaming service.  Plus, Jake gives his opinions on the end of "Legion", the beginning of "Cloak and Dagger", Andrew Lincoln pulling the escape hatch from the "Walking Dead", and why no one should care about the upcoming "Spawn" movie!

Unfortunately, due to a family emergency, there will be no new episode of Jake and Tom this week.

But that doesn't mean there's nothing for their loyal listeners to hear, as the guys polish off another episode of "PodFix Presents: Wizard Rewind"!

Listen in and journey back with the guys to the distant year of 2005.  It was a time when DC Comics was announcing the start of their "52" and "All-Star" projects, utilizing the talents of creators like Frank Miller, Jim Lee, Grant Morrison, and Frank Quietly.  The hottest show on television, "Lost", was finally arriving on DVD.  There were rumblings of beloved director Joss Whedon taking on a "Wonder Woman" movie, "V For Vendetta" was storming the box office.  And the morality of superheroes was being called into question.

Have you ever experienced one of those things that you didn't know how much you wanted it until you had it in your hands?

Jake and Tom had just such an experience with the show, "Cobra Kai".  Being children of the 80's & 90's, they of course grew up with the saga of Daniel Larusso, and so they were naturally a little hesitant to see the story continue after almost 30 years.  As such, they brought in the friends, Peter (host of the excellent "Podstalgic") to discuss what they wanted from s show showing Johnny Lawrence's side of the story.

 

Flash forward almost two months, and the guys reconvened to discuss what has surprisingly turned out to be one of their favorite new shows of the year.  Listen in to find out what they thought of where the classic characters have wound up, what they think of the the new characters, and why Coors Banquet is such an awful beer.

And for more extensive coverage of Cobra Kai, head over & listen to TV Ate My Brain for Peter & Tom's in depth analysis of each individual episode, interviews with members of the show's cast, and much more!

Once again, Jake and Tom were fortunate enough to cover the Motor City Comic Con, located in Novi, Michigan.  It was there that they bumped into fellow Geeks Worldwide alum Chris Scott, co-host of the podcast, "Watching the Multiverse"!

Welcome to the 100th Episode of Jake and Tom Conquer the World!

Believe me when I say that the guys are just as surprised as you are that they've managed to make it this far, but here they are!  And to mark the occasion, they've decided to not only look back on the previous 99 shows, but they brought in the big guns by interviewing one of their favorite comic book artists, superstar Darick Robertson!

Listen in as the guys find out Darick's work process when it comes to collaborating with writers, how he got through the controversy surrounding his book, "The Boys", what it felt like to have his drawings come to life in the adaptation of "Happy", what we can expect to see on the small screen, as well as his upcoming projects in comic books!

Be sure to support Darick by purchasing his work wherever you find your favorite comic book retailers.  And, as always, help Jake and Tom in their quest for world domination by rating them highly on iTunes, sharing their stuff on social media, and by telling your Android using friends to listen to them via the Amazing and FREE Couch Party App, available exclusively at the Google Play Store!
