This week on the Spoiler Show, we had a few technical issues resulting from trying to use an iPad as a recording device. Please note, this is not a good idea. We also had as a guest Daniel Cunningham, Marcus’ little brother, who regaled us with tales of politicians and other famous people, as well as the secret history behind Marcus’ name. http://spoilershow.podomatic.com/entry/2012-09-23T08_59_48-07_00 In this week’s SELL ME ON IT, I sold the world on […]

This week Marcus and I are joined by Edmonton comedy luminary Craig Sherburne, who regales us with tales of the comedy game, and grills us on our previous episodes! This wide ranging discussion touches on topics like zombies, overly affectionate pet ownership, how to use social media to promote yourself, and more! http://spoilershow.podomatic.com/entry/2012-09-07T06_54_21-07_00 A quick note, Rob Delaney is totally a touring comedian, and I’m just ignorant. In my defense, his feed does not often […]

Hey there, this week Marcus and I turn our critical eyes towards Objectivism, and tell you why it’s dumb! Spurred on by a certain extent to Republican VP nominee Paul Ryan’s adherence to this wacko pseudo-philosophy, we’ve decided to throw caution to the wind and get as much hate mail as humanly possible. Download it right here, or check out The Spoiler Show on itunes. I don’t think we really spoil too much this week, […]

Hey there, sports fans! Are you ready for some football? No? Good, because this week on The Spoiler Show, we’re talking Olympics, as podcast stalwart Marcus takes us behind the scenes of this massive event. We talk about Olympic history, what activities don’t get medals anymore, which ones shouldn’t (cough, equestrian events, cough), and what exactly the original Olympic games would have looked like. SPOILER ALERT: there’s a bit of naked wrestling, (but not on […]

This week, Marcus and I are joined again by Jeff Turner, who attempts to regale us with what it was like to live in Japan in the recent past. This is made a little bit more difficult by the fact that we recorded this episode right after attending a party thrown by the doctors who live down the street. On a related note, this episode is also semi-brought to you by Cave Creek Chili Beer, […]

The Spoiler Show Episode 9 – The Newsroom and the Empire of Illusion

Are you ready to learn? This week, Marcus and myself examined thematic links between Chris Hedges’ 2009 jeremiad against the current state of North American society, Empire of Illusion, and Aaron Sorkin’s ongoing polemic against the current state of television news, The Newsroom. There’s some pretty heavy topics in this episode, as we are dealing with the ongoing collapse of the Western world, but I think it’s pretty entertaining as well. The Spoiler Show Episode […]

Well hello there, friends out in Radioland! It’s time for The Spoiler Show! This week, Marcus and I attempted to talk about what we’re enjoying in the current TV universe, but instead got sidetracked (whaaa?) into a discussion of two TV shows where the universe is routinely saved, namely Star Trek and Doctor Who. We both remembered how long Star Trek has been a part of our lives, and also got into a spirited little […]
