Trying to Make Something in a Chaotic World

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.

Totally Totaled

Rowley DarkCompass AwardSqueaking 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.

Sickcast

hn0066 artworkWe’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.

Peppermint Engineer

hn0065 artworkHyper 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.)

Apocalypse Signs

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.

Perpetual Pizza Machine

Perpetual Pizza Machine artWe 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!

You’ve Been Ducked!

We’re back! Well, one of us is. Yes, it’s a solo show. Yes, I’m sorry. On this episode, I talked about all the reasons why Jen’s not on the show. I gave an update on my ongoing problems with sciatica and why I’m now taking Norco. I gave our first ever Pokemon Go update (complete with music). I talked about our new audio mixer and the testing I’ve done with Facebook Live. And more!

Pokemon SLO

It’s been way too long since our last episode but we’re back! During this show, we talked about my 40th birthday and why I think I’d be a difficult to person to live with. We talked about our wedding anniversary and the exciting stuff we did, including seeing the new Ghostbusters movie and using a coupon to have dinner at a local cafe. We played a listener voicemail message. Then, we finished out the show with an article about things turning 35 years old in 2016. Pac-Man Fever. Catch it!

Weeds, Joints, and Propaganda

This should’ve been our second episode for the month of June, but who’s counting? In this podcast, we talked about Jen’s weed obsession. Then, we recounted how we’ve regressed even further into California hippiedom, as we’ve started shopping at the local co-op. Also, I now know what it’s like to be a rhino at the zoo during feeding time. I also know what it’s like to be a public underwear stalker (?). New segment: Jen’s Pile o’ Political Propaganda. Then, we read some listener feedback. And more!

Suck It, Neil Young!

Matt Sams artWe’re back with another undeniably exciting episode of Hyper Nonsense! Jen’s not here this time around but that’s OK ’cause we’ve got special guest Matt Sams! This is Matt’s second time being on Hyper Nonsense. Last time we talked to him, he was in the midst of his first 365-song (recording one new song every day) project. 2016 is a leap year and Matt is taking advantage of the extra day to challenge himself with a 366-song project. We talked about the project, as well as Matt’s recent experience opening for the Smashing Pumpkins. And more!
