Read it and Weep
Summary: Read it and Weep is a good podcast about bad books, movies, and TV. Each week 2.5 comedians and a guest make fun of things like Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, Dear John by Nicholas Sparks, Going Rogue by Sarah Palin, and anything Keanu Reeves has been in.
#AniMAY comes to an end with the high-concept show about an alternate-dimension Satan transported into teenage work drama in Tokyo. Thanks for the fun month and we'll see you in #WelcomeToTheJunegle!
After 300+ episodes it's finally time for us to return to the topic of British reality TV love stories. We've got Chris and Tanya back for this very special episode! Let's talk love and hats! Thanks to our newest Meat Buddy, Dick from Manchester!

#AniMAY keeps rolling along with one of the most respected of all time, Cowboy Bebop. A group of space bounty hunters with lots of skills and no luck. It's a fun show and I'm finally watching it after 15 years of people pestering me about it. Recorded live at Helium Comedy Club in Portland, OR. Thanks to the Baroness Von Moneybags for becoming a Meat Buddy!
We're kicking off #AniMAY with some nerd girls in an apartment. It's Princess Jellyfish, based on the Manga of the same name. And I... don't know how I feel about it. But it's something! Thanks to Jazz, our newest Meat Buddy. You got this, Jazz!
We're closing out #Spacepril AKA #CaperilCaneveral with the wackiest James Bond movie, Moonraker. Watch as he launches into space to fight space Nazis! Bonus: we discuss a pigeon for almost half this episode. Mentioned on this episode The real heroes at the Pigeon Movie Database.
We put five annoying, overrated kids movies up for a Meat Buddy vote and they made us watch the 2015 prequel/spinoff of Despicable Me, Minions. We had to watch 90 minutes of gibberish from walking, talking, merchandise opportunities. And almost none of us enjoyed it. Episode is sponsored by The Children's Garden in Portland, OR. They have STEM-themed summer camps for 5 to 9 year olds enrolling now. Sign up and mention this podcast and they'll waiver registration fees. thechildrensgarden.com
This is it! The episode where I get to talk about my field trip to the Kennedy Space Center to watch a NASA/SpaceX launch. It's great. I brought on first-time guest Scott Hanselman who I met at the launch to share stories (and throw a bit of shade). We also talk about one of my favorite movies from my childhood, the low-tech science fiction film Gattaca. Listen now or GIVE ME YOUR NUMBER.
We're kicking off #Spacepril with the movie we had to watch because we lost a bet, Mac and Me. That's right it's Paul Rudd's favorite movie about a little alien whose face is a butt. Mentioned on this episode Shane is at Cap City Comedy Club in Austin TX this week. See his other upcoming dates. Amy has a new podcast about religion called Who's Your God.
We closed out #MarchBadness with the 1996 horror film starring a pre-Star Trek Shatner speaking the invented language Esperanto. It's really more #MarchWeirdness, but we work with what we've got. Thanks to Rev Lauren for sponsoring! And thanks to all our sponsors from this last round. It's been amazing. See you in #Spacepril!
After 250 episodes, we've finally been forced to go back and read the second part of this terrible book series about conspiracies, and 1970s racism. Fuck you, David, for making us do this. The 3rd installment will cost any sponsor $1,000.
It's time for #MarchBadness! We're going back to our roots of terrible stuff, starting with Fateful Findings, the 2013 film written/directed/starring/catered by Neil Breen, the David Lynch of bad movies. It's truly a magical day!
As promised, before we start #MarchBadness, we're doing one more episode about the best things last year. Well, this is about the TV show celebrating the best things last year. **Caution, this episode contains mild Black Panther spoilers in the second half.**
To close out #SmushMonth, we're smushing all 9 of this year's Best Picture Nominees into one huge conversation featuring three panelists who actually know things about movies!
This Disney sports movie will grab you by your knuckle pucks and make your spirit flying vee. Or maybe it won't. But either way, it'll force you to talk about hockey and the Olympics.
