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!
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 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!
In this episode, we learn about how the joints in Jen’s body can predict the weather. Speaking of which, it’s rained here for the first time in six months! We’v got stories about how people gleefully reacted to the rain (on Halloween no less). One of our neighbors got a new house and the whole teardown/buildup of that is making us sick! We introduce an exciting new segment called Uterus Talk. In the inaugural edition of Uterus Talk, Jen recounts her adventures in trying to make an appointment with Planned Parenthood. We respond to some listener feedback. Then, we round out the show with a news article about a woman who received the wrong sperm.
We’re as live as we wanna be on our latest pod! Find out what our loud neighbors are now doing loudly. We have an update on Jen’s claim for disability benefits. We’re going thru some legal things right now that we’re not talking about. Hear about Jen’s most recent adventures in Sleepy Boos Land. Some lucky person went on a fancy clothes and fine fragrances shopping spree with our debit card. Hear my review of the iPhone 6 Plus. We read some listener feedback (including iTunes reviews!). We covered a news article about how Joan Rivers is endorsing the new iPhone from the other side. And more!
Meh. It’s a low-energy kinda day. But we gotta make some pods. You’re welcome and we’re sorry. We’ve got an update on the errant tuna can that magically rolled behind our stove. We recount the story of when we rescued and released a wild bat. We played a sound clip from a recent episode that proves we’re time travelers. Or that the concept of decades really confuses us. Hear the exciting story of our new blender! Our listeners attempted to rescue us from the desert island we’ve been trapped on by sending in some hilarious feedback. We cover a story about a local woman who tried to get friendly with a giraffe and more!
We’ve still got “leftover” stories from our Las Vegas trip, including mean people on airplanes. Flight attendants with special airplane-healing powers and crazy coffee-drink customers. We received an odd solicitation in the mail from the ‘California Compliance Center?” Pretty sure that’s not legit. We’ll be eating well in August thanks to a gift card we got last year but didn’t redeem until now. Tho, it was unclear at first if the gift card was still valid. Jen read a post from the site Bubblews that was hilarious, but it probably wasn’t meant to be. And more!
We’re not live but we’re also not dead. We’re un-live and we’re preparing for an exciting trip to Las Vegas! But we decided to make a pod before we leave. Tech problems, we got ’em (again). Apple’s conspiracy against us continues! We have now soundproofed our closet so we can use it as a vocal booth. We recently celebrated my birthday, which included a nice dinner and airplanes. We responded to some listener comments. Jen wants to see shipping containers and pretty lights in Vegas. I want to go to the mob museum. Nobody wants to see Carrot Top or Criss Angel: Mindfreak.
We’ve done it! Yes, it’s true. We’ve successfully doubled the number of episodes we’ve produced so far. In honor of this milestone, we’ve decided to end the show. Just kidding! How could we quit now? We’ve got listeners leaving us comments, tweets, even calling us at home in the middle of the night! We’ve got new audio gear and we’re happy to tell you about it, even if we do have “more money than sense” in buying all of this stuff. We also discovered that the Australian prime minister has apparently been listening to our pods for years. Star Wars references! We got those, too. And daring helicopter-based escapes from Canadian prisons.
