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.
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!
We’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!
It’s time for a highly caffeinated new episode of Hyper Nonsense! We’re peanut-butter-cup-rogue-planet truthers and we hope you are, too. In this episode, we talked about why we’ve given up on recycling. I give some HUGE thanks to TIggr for gifting me an MLB.TV subscription so I can watch the Chicago Cubs games. It’s really rekindled my love of baseball. We talked about receiving our ballots for the upcoming California primary election, which led to a discussion about who will win the election. We got ur Super Delegates right here, gurl! We recap the staggering results of our most recent highly-interactive listener poll. Then, we finish the show out with some #MillennialBooks hilarity.
We’ve got an exciting episode for you! Not only are we Starbuckin’ it, but we have our first-ever guest for this iteration of our ongoing pod project. It’s Matt Sams, also known as Somnistatic. Matt has undertaken an ambitious song-a-day project for the year 2014. He’s recording a new song every day and releasing it online. As of this recording, Matt is on song number 239. He’s just about 75% of the way there and he hasn’t missed one day! During the interview, we discuss Matt’s songwriting inspiration/process. We talk about marketing and “making it” as a creative person in the Internet age. We meander thru a couple fun digressions and we play a couple of Matt’s songs.
