 RiaW #418 - Sleepless in Seattle | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:18:11

I was a finalist at the Seattle International Comedy Competition, so during the last couple days he gathered the other four finalists and they watched Sleepless in Seattle! It was incredibly fun. These guys are so funny, and this was the most time we'd spent all month just hanging out. And I think you'll really like the results.

 RiaW #417 - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Secret of the Ooze | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:17:30

#Podcrawl is back! It's our annual show where we team up with two of our favorite podcasts to review a trilogy of movies together. This year, we're watching the 90s rubber-suited Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies. It's a super fun episode. And be sure to check out our partner shows: TBTL w/ Luke Burbank - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Flophouse - Turtles in Time

 RiaW #416: We Are Your Friends w/ The Worst Idea of All Time | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:16:14

This week, we sat down with Tim Batt and Guy Montgomery from The Worst Idea of All Time to 2015 Zac Efron picture We Are Your Friends. Tim and Guy have seen it 57 times, which seems unpleasant. We Are Your Friends is about a young Zac Efron, a charming but bland LA disc jockey trying to make it big by writing a single successful song. Along the way he ruins some lives, Squirrel dies for no reason, and he wears very large headphones even when exercising.

 RiaW #415 - Savage Lovecast review w/ Myq Kaplan | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:16:45

As we continue to celebrate #Crossovember by chatting with our favorite podcasters, we're also breaking new ground on the show. We asked comedian Myq Kaplan what he wanted to talk about and he said his favorite podcast (besides ours and his), Savage Lovecast. And even though we've never talked about a podcast besides our own, we decided it would be great fun. And it was!

 RiaW #414: Pump Up The Volume (1990) - Crossovember | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:06:31

All month we're hanging out with our favorite podcasters. To start out, we sat down with Greg and Sarah from Funemployment Radio about Pump Up The Volume, the movie about a young Christian Slater hosting a pirate radio show that really touches people. It was the anthem to Funemployment's early days which, like ours, were over 8 years ago. Happy #Crossovember, everybody! Check out Greg & Sarah live every weekday.

 RiaW #413: Fraggle Rock #TheRocktober | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:16:42

In the early 80s but with a heavy 70s hangover, Jim Henson and Home Box Office produced a kids show unlike any other. People live in the garage, Fraggles live in the wall, Doozers live among the Fraggles, and Gorgs outside the rocks. And somehow, they're all dumb. Most of us don't have a big childhood dedication to Fraggle Rock but we welcomed first time guest, comedian Phoebe Bottoms, who trained with Jim Henson as a Muppeteer! For real!

 RiaW #412 - Moana (2016) #TheRocktober | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:15:05

If you don't like The Rock as a singing, dancing demigod, go fish. Because that's what we've got in this absolutely delightful Disney animated film. And the movie was so much fun we packed our show with FIVE HOSTS and if that isn't enough, a special guest appearance for Ezra's son, AKA the reason Ezra has seen this film hundreds of times. This is easily one of the most fun episodes we've ever done. Golly, I love #TheRocktober.

 RiaW #411 - Journey 2: The Mysterious Island #THEROCKTOBER | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:01:45

Everybody who reads Jules Verne assumes that he's not a brilliant science fiction writer but rather just an adequate journalist. He merely wrote down in excruciating detail a world that exists just off the cost of Palau. Well, at least that's what Peeta from Hunger Games and his grandfather Michael Caine assume, which is what leads them to a Mysterious Island along with Peeta's new stepfather The Rock. They go on a deeply boring adventure.

 RiaW #410 - The Epic Journey of Dwayne Johnson #TheRocktober FIXED | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:26:46

Listen up you roody poo candy ass. Here's the truth: brand new co-host Anthony Lopez loves wrestling. While the rest of the team has literally never seen a match. So what else could we do to kick-off #TheRocktober but to learn about our man Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's early career and have Anthony explain wrestling to us.

 RiaW #409: Country Strong (2010) - SPONSTEMBER | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:26:59

We're strong. Sure, we're not rap strong or pop punk strong, but we're strong. But then this movie shook us to our very core. Nah, that's not really true. But if Country Strong means putting up with a sloppy plot, lackluster acting, and some of the worst fake guitar playing in movie history, than we are weak. Fortunately we assembled a panel with plenty of musical experience to tackle this dissonant movie, including music industry veterans.

 RiaW #408: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - SPONSTEMBER | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:28:15

Read it and Weep is a good podcast about books, movies, and TV hosted by Alex Falcone. Each week, we discuss something from pop culture with an emphasis on blockbusters, failures, and nostalgia.

 RiaW #407 - Surf's Up 2: WaveMania SPONSTEMBER | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:20:37

The moderately successful Surf's Up, part of the wave of CGI penguin movies, didn't earn a full sequel. But it did well enough to ern a straight-to-video sequel without replacements for the major voice talent and with a new group of... wrestlers? Yep, WWE superstars John Cena, Undertaker, Triple H, and Paige got animated up as a positive crew of surfing penguins as well. It's weird. And it's not a good movie, but can returning guest Steven Wilber's excitement about it win us over? We'll see when we HANG 5.

 RiaW #406: Exit to Eden (1994) SPONSTEMBER | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:10:54

For the first time in a year we opened up sponsorships so that you, the loyal listener, could pick what we have to consume and boy you picked some interesting ones. Starting with Paul from New Jersey's pick of Exit to Eden. It's the film adaptation of the Anne Rice BDSM novel except in the movie, they added a buddy cop story around the BDSM novel for no apparent reason. But it came out in 1994 (the year of movies) and that makes us like it. Actually, it's weirdness made us like it to. And the butts.

 RiaW #405 - Yuri on Ice WET MONTH | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:18:41

Read it and Weep is a good podcast about books, movies, and TV hosted by Alex Falcone. Each week, we discuss something from pop culture with an emphasis on blockbusters, failures, and nostalgia.

 RiaW #404: The Hunt for Red October (1990) WET MONTH | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:24:22

It's Red October season and every vessel in the Russian navy has a tag. That's because capitalism is the best and like a person with a full sandwich punch card, the United States is about to get a free sub. The Hunt for Red October is a really good submarine movie with an incredible cast. And we two people with parents who worked on submarines here to talk about it. It's a rare fully positive episode of the show. GET WET STAY WET, unless you're in very deep water and then stay inside.
