Sloth skin smoking jacket? Say THAT 20 times fast! Welcome back everyone. As we mention in the intro this is another episode of GSi after-dark: Evening Edition. Listen close to your instructions on how to listen to this episode and the dress code. At long last I have seen the new Captain America movie so…

With episode 100 behind us we move on to episode 101, which I consider to be “well into our 100’s.” Thanks everyone for all the great feedback on Episode 100. We enjoyed reading all of the comments. Now we hope to back on a more regular schedule. By the time you read this and hear…

HAPPY 100!!!! We’ve been talking about it so long it’s hard to believe that it’s finally here – Episode 100. As we’ve mentioned before the idea for Jason and I to do a podcast together was born out of an interview, and aside conversation at SDCC 2010, and from there it has grown into “the…

We’re still on a weekly schedule, just not back on Mondays yet. We need a 8 day week so we can catch up and get back on track. I think I’m gonna make some calls about that. I’m having a love affair with these new retro toys. Between Funko’s ReAction, what Zica is doing and…

I’ll bet you thought we weren’t back on track and were going to have another skip week, didn’t you? Boy were you wrong! Sure we’re a few days late from our regular Monday posting, but that was just out of our respect for Dr. King and not because we were busy and stuff. But we…

Ok. The holidays are over, we had our fun, but now it’s time to get back to work! We had a nice little break these past few weeks to visit with family. I darn near froze to death out in the mid-west and the “polar vortex” and Jason had his mom in town. We hope…

Ok… it’s not really a mid-season break. We’re both such jet-setters, traveling the globe that it was a little hard to connect for a few weeks there, but we’re back with an all new episode of pop culture discussion. We had to come back THIS week, after all on THIS day (Dec 12th) two years…

Welcome back everyone. We hope you all had lovely Halloweens where ever and how ever you spent your All Hallows Eve. Mine was great. We even dressed up the dog again this year so it was a family affair. Now we slide on into November. A time of next generation game consoles, Black Fridays and…

Ninety episodes. That just doesn’t seem possible. And the saddest part is in all that time, all these episodes, all these hours… we’re still not any better at this than when we started. 🙂 But here we are once again on a Monday with an all new hour of geek speak for you all with…

We missed another week and it’s all Jason’s fault. It’s ok. I’m not being a jerk. He said we can blame it all in him, so that’s what we’re gonna do! But we’re gonna let that slide because he has a great excuse. If you listened last episode you know he was in Chicago meeting…

Hey everybody… it’s not Monday, but still here’s a new episode for the week. Sorry this one it a bit late. The in-laws have been in town all week and we’ve been doing wall-to-wall “touristy” things to show them Los Angeles, our fair city. Also it’s my lovely bride that cuts together all the episodes…

We are still basking in the afterglow of SDCC 2013. This year’s con was terrific, but just nuts! Jason and I weren’t able to connect at the show at all this year, much less record an episode, but as soon as we got back home to real life we put together this episode for you…

toyfare scan This is another jumbo episode clocking in at 1 hour 45 minutes. We actually debated splitting this episode and doing one regular episode and a bonus episode just talking about “Man of Steel,” but ultimately decided to just keep it all together as it would almost be impossible to separate the two, as our thoughts…
