Has it really been TEN episodes of this fabulous podcasting adventure? Yep.
Travis brings Indiana Jones Mad Libs and it turns out that Mad Libs are still tons of fun, Kevin brings a futuristic super suit (NBD) and cartoonist—and creator of the CPP logo!—Ben Horak brings some horrifying photos of the inside of his mouth. Our faith in mankind is fully restored.
Episode 9: Comedy “CD” and plastic burger, Star Wars figurines, old timey toy gun
Spesh guest Wilfred Padua brings an old comedy “CD” and a toy hamburger thingy. Kevin brings some unsurprising and yet still really cool tiny Star Wars figurines and Travis brings an old plastic Tommy gun with a secret past. Dreams are fulfilled, promises kept.
Episode 8: Crappy old 70’s books that Travis was named after, Seahawks Huddle doll, a friggin GUN
Kevin goes off brand and brings an item from the world of sports. Travis brings a stack of namesake 70’s Travis McGee books and special guest Dan Carroll brings a friggin honest to god real GUN. So basically he wins.
Episode 7: Pop-its, Garbage Pail Kids, The Early Works of Bettina McKelvey
Kevin brings a bunch of disgusting Garbage Pail Kids cards/stickers and we’re all super shocked and appalled. Travis brings Pop-its and we fill the garage with the sound of adorable little explosions. Spesh guest Bettina McKelvey brings some classic works of fiction authored by a younger Bettina McKelvey. Everybody grows and learns.
Episode 6: Bouncy ball, Cap’n Crunch VHS, another fucking ALF
The wonderful Allison Lizotte stops by with a Cap’n Crunch-themed indie movie VHS, Kevin brings another goddamn Alf and Travis brings a bouncy ball with personal significance. Nothing is ever the same again. And yet we are all the better for it in the end.
Episode 5: Groo Comics, self-made basketball card, a Playdude
Local political comedy rabble rouser Brett Hamil stops by with an old Basketball card he made of himself when he was a kid. It’s actually quite endearing. Kevin brings some dorky comic books and Travis brings a super cool, manly Playboy magazine.
Our old friend and showbiz co-worker Emmett Montgomery comes by with a very specific AND INTERESTING pair of glasses. Kevin brings a puppet of some personal significance and Travis shows off some ancient, haunted dolls. We’re a real band of kooks for sure!
Our old pal (old in the sense that we’ve known him for a long time, not that he’s an old man, though that’s true also) Derek Sheen came by with a CD containing his father’s criminal file! Then he tells us some harrowing stories relating to that subject matter. Travis brings a gross, overworked prop hand and Kevin is a nerd. Did somebody say “Podcasting dynamite?” Oh right, it was me!
This one’s a wicked literary, as Kevin, Travis and spesh guest El Sanchez share a Madballs joke book, an ancient–and super creepy–children’s reader and a…let’s say problematic cheesy 80’s romance novel, respectively. Plus El fills us in on the recent developments in their life–spoiler, it’s rhymes with “bregnancy”!
Episode 1: Alf Dolls and Ancient Racist Comedy Book
Your intrepid hosts kick off the ‘cast with a two-hander! Kevin–shocking nobody–brought his old Alf puppets. Travis brought a joke book from the 1920’s that might actually shock somebody because comedy from the past was awful. Enjoy!
