Hyper Nonsense is (finally) back! And Jen’s on the show, too! Tho, she didn’t necessarily get to talk much. We started the show by reading about a new sleep medication Shawn is taking. Sleep eating. Sleepwalking. Sleep motorcycling? They’re all coming. Then, Shawn recapped his recent trip to Podcast Movement in Anaheim (which he has many thoughts/feelings about). Jen is participating in Inktober. That’s a thing where art nerds draw stuff and put those drawings on the ‘net. We finished out the show with a thank-you to our former Patreon backers, as we’ve decided to close our Patreon account. (Don’t worry. The show isn’t ending.)
Hyper Nonsense is back! And in an attempt to make things even more complicated, Shawn attempted to stream the show live over Facebook Live Audio. (And yes, it is another sad, depressing, solo show. Sorry?) Shawn is going to the upcoming Podcast Movement conference in Anaheim! He is excited about it, but also dealing with the usual levels of anxiety and dread that go along with leaving the house. In a previous episode, Shawn talked about how he and Jen are considering donating their old car to charity. Shawn gives an update on that situation, and shares his feelings about being car-free (definitely not care-free). Shawn talks about his quest to be known by name at ever pizza parlor in town. And more!
It’s time for the semi-annual Hyper Nonsense Apple Cast! Nathan joins the show via Skype. He and Shawn talk about all of the latest Apple-related stuff, including news, podcasts/websites, and what Apple products they’re both using these days.
Hyper Nonsense has returned! In this episode, Shawn talks about the issues that had to be overcome with the Hyper Nonsense website, which is part of the reason why there hasn’t been an episode in awhile. Jen is absent due to a recent heatwave that has found her going into vampires mode and sleeping all day long. Shawn has some thoughts about the newish play review rule in major league baseball. Also, Shawn and Jen are considering going car-free, as Jen’s car is old and they’re too financially poor to get a new one.
Squeaking in just barely by the end of the month, we’re back! It’s time for a new episode of Hyper Nonsense. With a special guest! All the way from London, England. It’s Rowley from the DarkCompass podcast! During the show, we reminisced about the ye olde days of podcasting yore. We learned how Rowley sources music for his heavy metal-focused podcast. We took the opportunity to ask our non-American guest what the people of the UK think of current events in America (Trump!). Rowley then gave us an education on the nature of Brexit in the UK, and what that may mean for the future. Finally, we wrapped up the show with news items about flamethrower weed abatement (spoiler: the house gets burned down) and the latest trend in fight clubs: Chuck E. Cheese’s.
We’re sick. But, probably for different reasons. Still, we wanted to get a show out before the end of the month. During this episode, we talked about why we’re sick. We discussed the new business we started, as well as what it’s been like to be self-employed the last couple years. We talked about an audiobook we recently produced. Then, we finished out the show by opening a mystery box that was recently sent to our post office box.
Hyper Nonsense is back! And just in time for Christmas. Speaking of which, Jen is the proud owner of a shiny new (refurb’d) iMac. We talk about that, as well as the recent closure of MacSuperstore here in San Luis Obispo. We revisit a Hyper Nonsense holiday tradition (choo choo!) and discover that, not only is there a Peppermint Choo Choo, but there’s also a Peppermint Engineer. We contemplate a moral conundrum in which I buy a guy a bus pass. We go over some long overdue listener feedback, and then we finish out the show with our thoughts on the movie Rogue One. (Warning: Spoilers.)
We’re back with a brand new podcast, recorded completely in studio! With microphones and soundboards and everything! We talked about the Cubs amazing World Series victory as well as the Fox TV announcers’ anti-Cubs bias (including Joe Buck’s massive mancrushes on Clayton Kershaw and Cory Kluber). We have an inevitable discussion on the recent presidential election and its aftermath. Jen explained why she deleted her Twitter account and we finished out the show with a news article about a unique World Series bet.
We got us a podcast episode this month, against all the odds. Apologies in advance for the sound quality in the beginning of this episode. It does improve (mostly) later on in the show. We’re watching the 2016 World Series because the Chicago Cubs are in it for the first time in 71 years. It’s like a miracle explosion of amazingness. I talked about recent experiences with Papa John’s and Taco Bell after not eating at those places in years. (Also, I’m fat.) Then we played some audio from a new podcast project called Perpetual Pizza Machine Podcast: Podcast Edition. There, we went over some of Jen’s best Apple productivity hacks, we ask who’d win in a fight: Donald Trump’s hair or a black hole? And more!
