This we we do something a little different as we play “Podcast – The Tournament”. Marc hosts his version of a trivia show and is joined by contestants and fellow podcast hosts Mike, Eric, Stephen, and Bryan (through Bryan falls victim to Skype quickly). Listen in, play along, and ask yourself: Are you smarter than a podcaster?
It’s Thanksgiving so this week we’re doing something a little different. Get to know us a little better as we reveal to you, and each other, 5 things we’ve never shared before. After we talk about ourselves, we get to talk about each other as we take turns telling our “Favorite Things” about each other.
This week, we look at the fall movies designated by the film industry (and Entertainment Weekly) as Oscar favorites. The only problem is we haven’t heard of most of these movies so we take turns guessing the plots based only on the titles and who’s in them. Which feature film is NOT about 3 brothers molted by a priest? You’ll have to listen to find out. We’ve also got a plethora of “Favorite Things” including How I Met Your Dad, Almost Human, Anchorman 2, Hollywood Babble-On and more!
Do you have a Favorite Thing of the week? Leave us a voicemail and let us know 855-CRH-LINE
This week we start by celebrating our neighbors to the north where everyone’s polite, healthcare is free, and politicians are too honest. After that we learn how not to handle your relationship if you want it to last and Marc takes on the evil empire known as Comcast. Finally, it’s “Favorite Things” featuring a bit from Conan O’Brien and a new app called QuizUp.
On this episode, Marc fantasizes about enrolling in a new superhero school, Mike rages over HR, and then the discussion turns to porn and strippers as Joanna reminds Marc about the story behind a particular magic marker. Warning – that last part is pretty gross.
It’s a packed show this week. Marc brings us a story of a depressed man in China loses a piece of himself, Joanna finds signs with stories to tell and we’re joined by Jeff Boss who gives a a fantastic interview full of insight, mystery, and intrigue. Who is Jeff Boss? He’s run for office more times than you can imagine and he’s got one hell of a message. After that it’s “Favorite Things” which include a new game called Pudding Monsters, crazy Flyers fans vs. Pat Sajak, and Batman: Arkham Origins.
After our conversation about “third-party” candidates in Ep 51, we’ve dedicated almost an entire episode to the issue. First we’re joined by WeBeGeeks co-host Eric Karnes (@necrofamicim) for what we thought would be a debate but turned out to be a great discussion about the electoral system and how it could be better. After that NJ gubernatorial candidate Steve Welzer (@WelzerForGov) joins us to talk about The Green Party, his beliefs and what he’ll do to make the great state of New Jersey even greater. Of course, it wouldn’t be CRH without “Favorite Things”. Eric rejoins us as we talk The Goldbergs, Pokemon, American Horror Story, ESPN, and How I Met Your Mother. It’s a jam packed show and already one of our favorites.
This week Mike and Joanna got for the “Green Party”, Marc has strange dream, and Glee celebrates the death of Cory Montieth. After that it’s Favorite Things featuring Marc getting punked by Directioners, Joanna’s favorite new food spot, and Mike brings us Cards Against Humanity. This episode is brought to you by Joanna’s bottle of wine, which she put away throughout the show — like a champ!
It’s our 50th episode!! We begin with Joanna selling her house and then a SUPERSIZED portion of Favorite Things. Mike’s reviews GTA, Marc wants a Bat-Dad, and Joanna sings along to a Breaking Bad Musical. All that plus special guest Girls Are Geeks blogger, Rosalind joins us for her favorite things including Legos and Dr. Who. Special apologies to Mike from We Be Geeks who joined us as well, but there was a technical malfunction and the call was lost.
This week the gang is back together and dishing out more unsolicited advice. What do you do about your overbearing parents? How do you handle those pesky in-laws or coming clean to your significant other? We offer valuable life lessons because we are people helpers.
On this episode, Joanna and Mike take a week off, leaving Marc to geek out with Eric and Mike from the We Be Geeks podcast for a Bat-filled hour. Afleck is Batman, Cranston may be Luthor, Spader is Ultron, Finkel is Einhorn?!?!? (Note- we do not mention Ace Ventura at all, but I couldn’t help myself) We DO discuss a new “Joker” strain of marijuana and “Favorite Things” includes Booty Bin, Airplane Repo, and Amy Schumer’s new DVD.
Take a trip back in time as we explore a list how well men had it in the 50′s, and sexual euphemisms from the 1800′s. Also favorite things include Alton Brown’s newest show, Muppets, and real people reacting to fake Onion news.
In one of our favorite episodes to date, we’re joined by special guests Colin Cosell and Paul Olsen of the SNM Network. Besides making us laugh for an hour, Colin gives us an insightful and inspiring look in to chasing your dreams.
Marc accidentally deleted the first half of this show, but the second half is still jam packed with Mike vs. intersections, a whole bunch of favorite things, and the triumphant return of Jesse and the Rippers!
On our packed 40th episode we start with a victory for “The People”. Then we move on to Paula Deen, how NOT to pick up girls, the world’s worst daughter, and favorite things which include a spoiler free review of Man of Steel.
Happy Easter! This week Marc gets the shaft from his town, we go loco for the new Dorito’s taco, play urinal games, ask who stole our cheese, and review the stories of The Bible, much to Joanna’s dismay.
Part 2 to this super-sized CRH recaps Marc’s month of insanity, and explores tipping etiquette. Then we geek out over “The Epic History of Every Day Things” and a whole lot more. We’ve got a month to make up for, so enjoy.
This week we rejoice in the return of hockey, lament over some of history’s oddest deaths, Joanna shares the story of how she met Mike, and Marc finds a poll where people choose the lesser of two evils. You’ll be shocked at what America prefers to Congress.
It’s the first show of 2013 and we start the year with Joanna’s tales of drinking alone and Mike accidentally killing his car. Then it’s favorite things and the return of Bane who, apparently, has a potty mouth.
It’s the CRH year end extravaganza! This week, we take a look back at our most favorite, favorite things of 2012. And since we are on vacation, we’ve even got a special guest host, who we now realize, may not like us all that much. Next time we’ll do a much better job at vetting our substitutes.
This week Marc and Mike start by arguing over baseball, much to Joanna’s chagrin. We then get geeky over our favorite TV shows both past and present; hit up our favorite things which include a 12 year old “enforcer” and a certain Twitter takeover. Finally, we close the show with Mike’s least favorite thing which gets all of us fired up!
This week we discuss why it’s best not to be anyone’s neigbor in Belize and a debate about our least favorite holiday songs leads me to a million dollar idea. I attempt to redeem the holiday spirit with my favorite thing and then Marc’s favorite thing features all that is wrong with humanity today. Thanks, Howie Mandel.
In this week’s episode Marc and I have to agree to disagree a lot. We start off with a discussion of a promising new job prospect for Mike and then discuss Hollywood’s most overpaid actors/actresses which gives us a chance to debate the enigma that is Nicholas Cage. Finally, a double dose of Marc’s favorite things allows us to revisit a beloved sitcom of our childhood and challenge each other to a duel. In the end it’s all a matter of taste in that some of us (me) have it and some of us (people other than me) do not.
In a truly random episode, Marc and I discuss the death of innocence thanks to Elmo-gate, luckily my favorite thing this week provides a glimmer of hope for The Muppets thanks to Cee-Lo, one of the Muppetiest men in showbiz. We end the show fantasizing about a big lottery win and what that would mean for both ourselves and the podcast. Spoiler alert: It involves monkeys.
This week we learn that when it comes to scoring with the ladies it’s good to be the general, as long as you don’t use e-mail. Marc geeks out about Survivor and I talk about the new MTV show Catfish which has captured my heart. Internet dating only works if you actually start physically dating at some point people! This episode is so good it should last you for a couple of weeks while we’re off for Thanksgiving. Sorry, folks, I have a turkey to brine and Marc works in retail, ’nuff said.
Talk about your crazy random happenstances how about a hurricane/nor-easter hybrid followed by a freak snow storm? Our hearts go out to all those so royally screwed by mother nature these past few weeks and Marc and I are here for you with the funny…if you have power and a working Internet connection. There was also this national election thingy that happened apparently and Marc and I had some less than orthodox ways of deciding who got our vote for the local school boards. So before you have a meltdown as epic as Karl Rove, download, listen and laugh your cares away.
In this week’s episode, we discuss the ups and downs of living on your own and we play a round of what did Joanna hurt herself on this week. Later a discussion of our favorite things winds up with us getting political. Well, about as seriously political as anything involving Donald Trump can get. Posting from the edge of Hurricane Sandy, note the dedication!
In this week’s episode, we vent, a lot. Sorry for the hiatus but after the trials and tribulations of moving into my first apartment I’ve learned two things 1. Nothing ever goes the way you plan and 2. CABLEVISION’s OPTIMUM SUCKS! So listen in as we discuss the art of seduction as demonstrated by cable companies to get you to assume the position and just what happens once you do. We then wonder why it seems that more and more people lacking in basic interpersonal skills are taking jobs in customer service. This episode will make you face palm so hard you’ll leave a mark.
This week we get personal with some revelations regarding some of our more awkward behavior during bouts of boredom. A discussion of our favorite things for the week includes topics such as How I Met Your Mother, why some things are funnier in a tv show than real life, and the infomercial product with which I’m currently obsessed. We end with a look at the gift that keeps on giving: celebrity meltdowns.
In this week’s episode Marc and I chime in on the rash of celebrity DUIs as well as the continuing Lohan family saga. We later discuss the legitimacy of reboots vs. remakes and attempt to set some ground rules. We also agree that some movies are just sacred and should not be touched, though we may not necessarily agree which ones those are (i.e. me=Willy Wonka, Marc=Robocop).
This week we start off with a talk about the fabulous people watching at Pepboys and my discovery of a frightening new hairstyle I can only hope spreads like wildfire. We move on to our favorite things for the week which include a sign that the future is now and Marc trying to sell me on watching The X Factor. Finally, we debate the greatest high school movies of all time and why most of mine include Christian Slater and most of Marc’s include a cast member of Dawson’s Creek.
In this week’s podcast, we discuss all the joys that September brings: school, football, and new TV! A journey into the mindset of the class of 2016 (according to Beloit at least) ultimately leaves us feeling old. Later, Marc and I take a look at the new fall tv lineup, which shows we can’t wait to see and which shows we wish we could have heard pitched to television executives. Plus, our favorite things of the week!
WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT! This week’s podcast is not your granny’s podcast. Please do not gather the children round the old iPod for this one. We start off with Marc getting punked at work and move into our favorite things from the week. This leads to a discussion of cockfighting and strippers. Yes, that’s right, cockfighting and strippers. We then end with a real life fairy tale, to cleanse the palate. This episode just has to be heard to be believed.
This week Marc and I reveal a bit too much about some guilty pleasures, mainly Marc’s fondness of the Twinkles and my addiction to Dance Moms. We also pitch a cast for a Celebrity Survivor that includes B listers both young and old. Most importantly we launch a brand new segment “Favorite Things” complete with theme song!
In this week’s episode, we discover how none of us ever really leave high school while discussing the navigating the cultural wilderness at a new job. Later, we continue with a discussion of some less than scrupulous actions taken while in our youth. Hopefully, the statutes of limitation hold up, if not this podcast was for entertainment purposes only. Any and all stories are fictitious and anything resembling actual persons or events is entirely coincidental.
In our TENTH episode we breakdown the 2012 Summer Olympics in all its majesty. Marc offers suggestions to liven up the coverage of the games from a very heterosexual male point of view. I, on the other hand, attempt to defend the enigma that is Ryan Lochte. We start off however with a very joyous announcement from yours truly.
In this week’s episode, I finally get to geek out about one of my favorite subjects, cheese. We learn just how deep my love for the dairy runs. Other topics include road trips, making friends through somewhat questionable means, and which of the 7 engineering wonders of the modern world Marc despises.
In this episode Marc and I question the educational value of programs on The Learning Channel (TLC) as we explore the phenomenon that is Honey Boo Boo. We predict the next celebrity sex tape scandal and learn of my strange attraction to a certain advertising mascot.
On a very special episode of Crazy Random Happenstance Marc and I welcome a friend of ours, Rob Poole, to debate the finer points of the long awaited The Dark Knight Rises. We touch on themes such as populism, class warfare, and Anne Hathaway in leather. Plus, we all take a turn imitating Christian Bale. Thanks to Rob for taking the time to attempt to bring a touch of culture to the CRH world, hope to have you back again soon.
This week Marc geeks out over the new Spiderman and defends his love of Dawson Creek. We also discuss rebooting The Breakfast Club and I try to save Marc from the dark side that is the church of scientology. This episode is dedicated to my father, Louis Barbuscio, who passed this week. His laughter was as infectious as it was constant and he made me the lover of the funny that I am today.
In this week’s episode the crazy randomness continues as we start off with a story from our high school days, then proudly take up the sword in defense of Aaron Sorkin (Marc’s ultimate man-crush), and end up performing Mad Men-esque pitches for some of Time Magazine’s Worst Inventions. So light yourself a Lucky throw the baby in a cage and enjoy!
In this week’s episode Marc and I discuss a wide variety of disorderly conduct. We learn that Marc is the last person who should judge anyone else’s driving habits, the Jersey Shore kids influence on our local legal system, and why on any given Sunday you could arrest the entire female population of Elizabeth, NJ. There are some stupid laws on the books in NJ, and we’re not just talking about being forbidden to pump your own gas.
In our third episode, Marc and I discuss a variety of celebrity related nonsense. We take sides in this decade’s ultimate Cold War: Christian Bale vs. Leonardo DiCaprio, marvel at the wonder that is Mike Tyson, and debate whether females are funny or Adam Carolla is just still not over high school. We start off, however, with me defending my right to multitask even when driving. Silly, cell phone law.
In our second episode, Marc and I discuss the finer points of the beloved 80s T.V. series the A-Team, as we try to determine if it stands the test of time. Other highlights include bionic abilities and something that was never covered in the classic novel 101 things to do with a Dead Cat.
We’ve been featured at girlsaregeeks.com! Be nice to people in high school, kids, you just never know when that’s going to come back to you. Subscribe to it while you’re there as I will be letting my geek flag unfurl there in the future!
Here is our first ever episode! Discussion highlights include why marshmallows are best roasted on wooden utensils, just how truly mighty a sword a pen can be, and why the Red Roof Inn will never sponsor this podcast not to mention superhero lifestyle choices and Marc’s suggestion for the greatest sports movie of all time which appears no where in ESPN’s list. Hope you all have as much fun listening as we did making it and stay tuned for more!
Marc and I spent all day this past Sunday being hilarious . . . and 75% of that was actually captured digitally! Yay! Our first ever podcast will be coming soon but bare with me as I get this site up and running.
