Jake and Tom Conquer the World

Feeling contemplative (and more than a little inebriated), Jake and Tom sit down with their old chums Matt & HAB (formerly of the dearly departed podcast "Couch Party") to look back and talk about all of the technological changes they've experienced in their lifetimes. 

What follows is a fun and often times frustrating look back at the tech of their youths, in which the guys begin to wonder whether or not old school arcade games were nothing more than a scam designed to snatch as many quarters from little kids as possible, and how the cell phone was replaced by the Bluetooth as the douchebag weapon of choice. 

Along the way, the guys ask themselves what may have been lost by acquiring this new tech.  Have we somehow managed to get dumber as a result of having all of the world's information at our fingertips?  Should we be worried about our phones "spying" on us?  And what are we gonna have to deal with when "deep fakes" become more commonplace?

Somewhere in all of this, Jake and Tom get into an argument about one region of Michigan's dialect versus another, the guys look back fondly on the skills of "bar kids", and HAB regales us with the legend of Potato-Top Thompson.

While they might not mention it as much as the other stuff they geek out to, deep down, Jake and Tom love Star Trek.  So it was with great anticipation that they sat down to watch the first three episodes of the latest entry in the franchise: Picard!

Jake and Tom have done a lotta different types of shows through the years.  But in all that time, they've never done one devoted almost entirely to two of their favorite subjects: Red Meat and Beer!

Tom was lucky enough to get hooked up with a sampler pack of handmade beef jerky, courtesy of the local artisans at Twizted Jerky, and so he and Jake decided to review it live and on air!  So listen in as your two favorite drunken dorks give you their thoughts on it while also sampling from Tom's collection of cellar aged beer.  Along the way, the guys discuss the series finale of "Arrow", talk about Jake's new hobby of brewing his own mead, and Tom learns the hard way that Carolina Reapers aren't for the faint of heart.

Now that the dust has settled on the release of "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker", the internet has come through with the inevitable release of details of the troubled making of the film.

Listen in as Jake and Tom sit down for what their friend Roe calls a "ramble-cast" as they discuss the loose details of what Colin Trevarrow had originally planned for the film, the setbacks in the "Obi-Wan" series, and what's rumored to be coming soon for the franchise far, far away.
