Ep18: The Mid-Majors of Summer 2008 / Where's Graham?

Pull the emergency brake, gang: The KtS Podcast is about to fly off the rails! This week, we wind down Summer 2008 retrospective with a look at the Mid-Majors (Kung-Fu Panda, The Incredible Hulk, Wanted, and everybody's favorite Will Smith movie, Hancock)!

Along the way, we debate the pseudo-science of predicting blockbusters and busts, talk about a movie contest you can't enter, and somehow manage to lose Graham for half the episode.

Dad or grad, friend, or foe, atheist or Jedi--you don't wanna miss this paean to professional podcasting!

Ep17: The Flops of Summer, 2008 / Sell Everything!

This episode is all kinds of jacked-up, and I'm not even talking about the subject matter!

As me, Matt, and Graham continue our march towards silly-season at the movies (which kicks off with next week's Iron Man 3), we wax psychotic about 2008's biggest summer flops: Meet Dave, The Love Guru, The Happening, and Speed Racer.

Oh, and my life-and-death struggle with technology rages on. Yay!

Click, Speed Racer! Click!


Row, Row, Row Your Boat Gently Through the Basement

Hey, Everyone! Floodmageddon 2013 prevented us from recording a new podcast yesterday. But we'll be back next week with a look at 2008's summer flops.

Stay dry 'til then, and take care.


Ep16: 2008 Summer Blockbuster Retrospective

It's April, Everyone! Prepare to be showered by new episodes of the KtS Podcast!

That's right, I said "epsiodes". Today kicks off a multi-part retrospective of 2008's big summer movies by me, Matt, and Graham. Thrill to our slobbering adoration of Iron Man, our shrugging respect for Wall-E, and our amnesiac struggles to remember much of anything about Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull!

If that's not enough, stay tuned for our ultra-geeky dissection of that year's biggest movie, The Dark Knight!

And be sure to join us next week, when we'll dive into the mega-flops of the 2008 popcorn season. It should be quite The Happening!

Ep15: Oddly Great and Powerful with Matt and Graham!

Welcome to Wonderland, kids!

(Sorry, I meant to say "Oz"!)

This week's episode finds your host even more fatigued than usual, but hopeful for the future. It also marks the first of (hopefully many) roundtables with guests Matt Lazar and Graham Sher!

Join us for a discussion about Oz the Great and Powerful, the Disney-fication of blockbusters in general, and an exploration of the "Sloppy Tandoori"!

As always, we appreciate your tuning in. Feel free to spread the word on iTunes, your favorite message boards, or during your daily stroll through the prison yard!
