A Podcast About Franchise Killer Movie Superlatives (Finale Month)
Have you ever had a movie franchise that appealed to you crash and burn? Something that had 1, 2, or even 3 good outings before the world was treated to a hot pile of garbage that brought it to a swift and unsatisfying end? Sadly, us too, and it’s much more common than we thought! For our final outing in our Movie Superlatives franchise we had to hand out our five fundamental somethings on Movies that killed their respective franchises! Who was the best hero in a death knell movie? What was the best cliffhanger that left us wanting more with nothing to show for it? What’s the best reboot or franchise? We dive into the superlatives and sucklatives of all things franchise killing with some answers that may surprise (No MCU stanning here!) if you enjoy the superlatives series, check out our numerous past episodes covering pretty much every type of movie. Stick around until the end to hear what we will be working on next, and don’t forget to let us know what you think on Twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast! ---------Check out more about SOMETHING--------- Youtube Twitter Merch APodcastAboutSomething.com (full episode transcript available) Keep up with all the news on Kalvin's next podcast The Magic Number is 3...

A Podcast About Selective Listening - My Heart Will Go On - Celine Dion (Finale Month)
Whoa boy do we have an excellent choice for our final, that’s right final, episode in our Selective Listening series! My Heart Will Go On by the great Celine Dion is the star of our show this time around. You may ask yourself why that sounds so familiar, and it’s because it was one of the most popular soundtracks to one of the most popular films of all time from Titanic. Did a family member of yours regale you with this beautiful tune? What exactly does it mean? Throw in a little twist regarding how each line relates to this podcast and this episode will make you feel like the King of the World! Our hearts will go on after the show ends, but will yours?

A Podcast About The MCU (Remix) (Finale Month)
Welcome to the first episode of our Finale Month! We wanted to kick off Finale Month in the same place we started this podcast with a remixed version of the MCU! The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a force to be reckoned with, both monetarily and popularly, but it had to start somewhere and some might say an eternity ago in the ancient year of 2008 with a “washed up” actor and a C-level comic book character at the proverbial chrome helm. We lay out the 5 fundamental somethings of the MCU, including who are the best heroes, villains, shows and movies as well as what the future holds and where we got our start! If you were a hero in the MCU who would you be? Let us know on Twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast.

A Podcast About Airing Of Grievances Part 3
Yesssss, finally, we have come back around to the most cathartic of episodes! Our annual airing of grievances (part 3) has arrived and it’s our best one yet. Now that our lives aren’t completely dominated by a pandemic, we are reminded of all the other little stuff that used to (and still does) piss us off.  Some stuff has a way of really grinding our gears, and it’s something we are sure we share with you in some way. Blippi, skimping popcorn chicken, the gym, getting buried in candy (it’s worse than you would think), the Mandela Effect and Robert Kraft all show their pissy little faces with more on the sidelines as well. Join us on Twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast and air some of your grievances!

A Podcast About the Tourney at Harrenhal (ASOIAF)
Now that it has been awhile since the disastrous 8th season of Game of Thrones, we think it’s time to visit the subject again. Arguably, the event that kick started the events that we loved as fans for at least 5 seasons, The Tourney at Harrenhal! Shrouded in mystery during a time period of much calamity, the Tourney was one of the biggest butterfly effect events that occurred throughout fake history. Shadow alliances, attempts at a coup, marriage and love were all present and dialed up to 11. It’s most certainly poignant that it occurred at one of the most expensive castles ever built while hosting the best knights that have ever lived as the spark of Robert’s Rebellion is ready to explode and tear apart the realm. Also, who the F&%k is the Knight of the Laughing Tree?

A Podcast About Harry Potter Movie Superlatives
The year is 2011. You stand around the water cooler talking about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Pt. 2 and naturally, the conversation stretches back to the Harry Potter catalogue. You argue with your colleague, what’s the best use of magic? What’s the best evil plan in the series? Best use of magic or Best (or worst) Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher? Now bring yourself back to the present because we’re here to hit you right in the nostalgia part of your brain as we hand out our patented made-up awards to the Harry Potter franchise! We even include The Fantastic Beasts franchise in our pool of choices as we award the best in a series full of highs as well as the worst, which, come on, there is some of that in here too.

A Podcast About Tommy Oliver (Power Rangers)
My boy Tommy O, the one and only Green (White, Red x 2, and Black) Ranger out there. By one and only, we mean a cut above the rest, a leader, an enemy, and a friend by the name of Tommy Oliver! Often people’s favorite of all Power Rangers, he certainly has quite the background when it comes to development, with Jason David Frank bringing the character to screens near you. With an up and down history amongst fellow rangers and a story-line that spans all forms of media, we give Tommy our full attention as we try to decide which version is best and what makes Tommy such a great ranger. Age certainly hasn’t done JDF justice, but Tommy is timeless. Check out the links below for everything else from A Podcast About Something!

A Podcast About Selective Listening - Grillz - Nelly, Paul Wall, Ali & Gipp
"Got the whole top diamond, and the bottom rose gold!" Or is the bottom row gold? It's hard to tell sometimes what is meant by any particular lyric in any particular song, so Nick and Kalvin are here yet again to break down a song line by line in the latest entry to the Selective Listening song. We try to figure out which one of these rappers is the most talented, how many different ways they can say "diamonds are shiny," and of course what was going on in each of their careers in late 2005 to bring us the anthem of a lifetime. Grillz was an instant classic and it was important for us to immortalize it again over 15 years later, so rob your local jewelry store and tell em to make you a grill (preferably while listening to this episode)! Let us know on twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast your favorite memories of Grillz or which verse you thought was the best! ---------Check out more about SOMETHING--------- Youtube Twitter Merch APodcastAboutSomething.com (full episode transcript available) Keep up with all the news on Kalvin's next podcast @Magic3TVPod

A Podcast About the Salem Witch Trials
Incantations. Spells. Grimoires. The Devil’s words. BS tests and the hangman’s noose. All things that today don’t mean much, but in 1692 they meant everything, especially during the epic (kind of) mythological time of the Salem Witch Trials! Blown out of proportion is an understatement, and Kalvin and Nick dive deep to abolish the blasphemers and confirm the truths. We bring our spectral evidence to the table and dissect this grim episode of American lore and the trials and tribulations many poor women and men of a Puritan community faced on the frontiers of Massachusetts. Yet another time where it’s easy to point fingers until the higher ups find themselves pointed out, and just as quickly as it flamed up, it fizzled out.

A Podcast About Boxing Movie Superlatives
A film with sports as the catalyst of the story can be a good one. But it’s mostly a genre filled with cliche moments and feel good endings. One sport, however, holds up better than all others when it comes to film, and that’s boxing! So naturally it’s time for us to punch out a Boxing Movie Superlative episode! For a small list of decent boxing movies, most tend to hold up. Movies such as Rocky, of course, dominate the field when it comes to some of the best moments, opponents, and shouts of Adrian! While others tell a different story from a different point of view, one that tends to help the viewer take a walk in the protagonist's shoes. Which fighters have the toughest of opponents? Or the dopest of cornermen? And overall, who is the best fighter, as in the character and the actor who plays them? We follow each award with our patented sucklatives, and we’re sure you’ll see what we see, even if Mickey has to cut ya! Check out the links below for some other awesome Superlative episodes brought to you by A Podcast About Something, and let us know on Twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast what you think about Boxing Movies.

Are your arms long enough to (metaphorically) slap box with Eminem? Are anyone's? This week Nick and Kalvin return to the Selective Listening series to break down one of the most dense rap songs ever and quickly realize that our arm's are not long enough. It takes all of our combined power to cover every single word in this amazingly constructed track while Eminem is throwing lyrics at us at supersonic speed (JJ Fad). Take a journey with us through every single word in this Guinness World Record holding song as we break it down line by line to get to them bottom of what it really mean to be THE Rap God!

We’re here to break it down for the masses, from the creation of the character to the initial and beyond boy wonders who occupied the crimson carapaces and masks. The rises and falls, deaths and rebirths, horrible costumes, and some slightly better ones. Who best represented the identity of Robin? Hell, did Batman even need a Robin?

With surprising star power and solid writing, Kevin Smith has built a universe of his own with some amazing characters like Jay and Silent Bob.

You’ve pushed yourself through a rough work week and are surprised with the unexpected, a Beach Day. Of course, with a beach day comes Beach Games, and the caveat to this trip is that those beach games could land you a new job! Sound awful? We agree, but luckily you won’t have to live through something like that, because the members of one of the greatest shows on earth did it for you already. The Office, Season 3, Episode 23 finds our characters subjected to yet another scheme by the world’s best boss (self proclaimed), Michael Scott, and now they must fight for their lives (figuratively) in the new Regional Manager sweepstakes. Who finds themselves paired together during the egg on a spoon contest? Who shoves the most hot dogs down their gullet? A sumo suit anyone? If that sounded insane, it’s because it is! Would you tolerate or enjoy a beach day with your work colleagues? Would you walk across a pit of hot coals to prove a point before confessing your love in front of everyone?

NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA BATMAN!!! Holy air bat pods listeners, if you couldn’t tell this week's episode is all about the one, the only, Batman. Specifically the live action iterations! With a timeline stretching back to the 40’s there have been numerous depictions of the caped crusader and his gadgets on the big screen, but it’s truly been a mixed bag when it comes to results. With such a rich history of crime fighting, tech, and villains, it’s a near impossible task to string it all together. That’s why we’re here; to award the ones that did it right, and shit on the ones who did it wrong. Who has the coolest toys (gadgets) or the best suiting up scene? We even give out awards to the best Batman, and even the man behind the cowl, Bruce Wayne. The sweetest ride and of course best costume round out our picks for this month's movie superlatives.

That’s right, what you came to GoT (Game of Thrones) for in the first place; the motherfu*$%ng dragons! We take a deep dive into one of the most interesting aspects of the world itself, and most definitely the most interesting creatures to inhabit the world of A Song of Ice and Fire. But how did they come to be? How did someone even get close enough to tame the first one, considering they aren’t puppies? What made the people who rode dragons so special? We provide our theories and more including the history of dragons, the biggest and baddest of all, the riders who, well, rode them, and where the hell they ended up. With the keen ability at waging war, the history is bloody, full of intense moments that shifted the power dichotomy fifty times over. From humble beginnings to power unattainable to the regular peasant, to the descent that led to extinction (kind of), we cover it all!

But 2020 was lax on new releases because reasons, so we are taking this opportunity to look to the future! Some movies try to hang their hats on bringing forth a truly visually appealing future timeline, with none of the substance behind it. While others just throw stuff at you so fast you can’t comprehend it all. Some things, however, certainly stick whether it’s the visual appeal, or the practicality of the future. We’re eschewing the near future for the far-reaching stuff this week as we dive into Future Movie Superlatives! Queue the awards ceremony for the best vehicle, best future to live in (it’s a sparse pool, trust us), the best piece of tech, Best A.I., and of course we dive into some problems that could only sprout up in the future! We don’t neglect the downsides too, with surprises around every corner as we rub our futuristic crystal computer converter, releasing the power light of truth (movies) to reveal futures that range from dreary to bright, and believable to uncanny. Strap in and don’t touch that warp jump drive, but be sure to release the valve of all things A Podcast About Something at the links below!

A Podcast About A Presidential Roast
Presidential fatigue is real, similar to the way the world felt about Justin Bieber, Pamela Anderson, or Flava Flav. So, naturally, the way to move past those feelings is to roast the position, the accolades, the ups, and the downs, as well as the man himself. That’s right, Kalvin and Nick are here to Roast the (former) Presidents of the United States. No, not the most recent one (although we still take a few shots), but some of his predecessors who may boast a nose of epic proportions or an attempted BDM that didn’t quite pan out leading to premature death! We round robbin through the 10s, ’20s, ’30s, and ’40s of presidential eras, putting our own unique spin on what four different presidents brought to the table, and the crumbs they may have left behind. If you could roast any president in real-time, who would it be? Let us know on Twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast who you would pick and check out the links below for more A Podcast About Something if you’re in the mood for a little something, nothing, anything, and above all, everything.  ---------Check out more about SOMETHING--------- Youtube Twitter Merch APodcastAboutSomething.com (full episode transcript available)

A Podcast About Real Life Heists
The ultimate heist, the big score, it's a thing of wonder. The thought has most likely crossed your mind, like how to heist those cookies or 150 million dollars from 3 casinos without breaking a sweat. Whether it’s a feasible heist you’re after, or something entirely bombastic, we've got you covered on this week’s episode all about Real Life Heists! Kalvin and Nick each drop two of our favorites and what makes them so great. The ins and outs, the big hang-ups, the big breaks, and the big scores! Some heists are absolutely explosive in their planning, and somehow they don’t all get caught. We let you know where they went wrong, or where they managed to get it right, the minute details that gave them away, or the momentary lapse in judgment that left them free men (or women,) for a little while at least! Could you handle the anxiety of pulling off a big score?

A Podcast About TV Fan Theories
TV fan theories, the natural aftermath of a particularly explosive idea, tragic death, terrible twist, and much more. Good television is meant to get us as fans talking, and discussion breeds ideas. Some can be completely out of left field, while others are entirely plausible. So plausible, in fact, a creator may come out and admit the theory is valid (or at least hint heavily that it is). The few times we as fans actually get the opportunity to influence our favorite shows. If you’re a fan of this show you’ll understand exactly where we’re coming from, and hopefully your interest is piqued! Kalvin and Nick are back with some expertly curated fan theories! Reveling in the minutiae of it, we present two picks each of the best fan theories ever brought forth to the front page of the internet (reddit) or crammed into a cracked.com article. With evidence to support our claims and hours of thought behind our picks we lay it out for you! What’s in the Krabby Pattys? How the hell did a house sponge start talkin? We promise they aren’t all Spongebob (Daredevil, Arrested Development, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles also make appearances), but they’ll all make you wonder. Let us know your favorite fan theories on Twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast!

A Podcast About Christmas Adjacent Movie Superlatives
As we come off of the holliest, jolliest time of year, when every other movie that has the word ‘Christmas’ is branded as a classic, we like to sidestep the mistletoe for something a little different. Some movies like to shoehorn in the holiday, while others do it in a way that leaves some mystery in the air. Do all movies that have Christmas in them fall into the Christmas category? Hell no they don’t! We’re here to give you the skinny on some of the dopest Chirstmas adjacent movies! They may take place around, or feature Christmas, but don’t you dare call it a Christmas movie! Who brings the best fight to the table during the season, but for a completely different reason, outside of shopaholic Christmas induced rage? Who throws the best party, or has the best use of a fake Santa? We toe the white and red line with our picks, some coming dangerously close to actual Christmas movie territory, and argue bitterly over the classification! Stick around for the polar opposite sucklative awards with some honorable mentions in between. Feel free to argue with us on Twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast on whether or not Die Hard is a Christmas movie!

A Podcast About the NFL in the Time of COVID
Oh what a time to be alive! While a majority of options out and about that used to entertain the masses have been taken off the table, the good ole American past time of sports has remained front and center. Now more than ever the entertainment the NFL provides is essential to some people and provides thousands of jobs and massive amounts of revenue. They, however, are not immune to the effects of Covid-19, and Kalvin and Nick are here for it! What have they done to keep the players playing? The coaches coaching? How has the experience been different for fans such as ourselves, and the teams who play the games? Have they figured it out, or is it the false sense of security that has bitten so many other organizations in the ass? We’re gonna break it down, and then provide our amazingly valuable insight into where the divisions stand, who the dark horse teams are, and our pick for who will not only be in the Super Bowl, but win it! Let us know which team will win the chip’ in this year of pandemics on Twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast.

A Podcast About Fatherhood
Those with their dad card (or soon to be) please stand up, this one’s for you! Fatherhood is a big deal, with no exact science behind it, tons of trials and tribulations, lots of poop, weird adventures and so on. We reflect on the nitty gritty of our own fatherhood, whether we were prepared, and how those around us tried to prepare us. Now that we’re seasoned veterans, we try to impart what little wisdom we’ve gained over the years on you, the listeners, and whether those books you’re thinking of buying are worth a damn! We end with stories that hit you in the feels, wise words, and puns only a dad could deliver.

A Podcast About Teen Movie Superlatives
Being a teenager is a rite of passage we all share; an awkward phase in our lives where we grapple with the oddity that is ourselves and the preconception of what the world is supposed to be like. Like every other aspect of life, being a teenager in high school has been blown up and put on the big screen time and time again. Some do it well, bringing to life an idea of the high school experience meant to wow the watcher and fantasize about the experience. Others are straight garbage and miss the point completely (there were no 35 year olds in my high school)! For this month’s superlatives, we dive into high school/teenage movies and which big-screen adaptations get them right or wrong. Who attends the best high school or has the best friend group? Which puppy-dog young love couple is the best? Which parents rock, or suck? We bring you compelling awards for every aspect of cinematic high schools as well as awards for those who do it the worst. Lastly, we aim to answer whether the experience in these movies was a reflection of real-life or utter crap.

A Podcast About Rap Beefs Part 2
Round 2, Fight! We’re back with another round of Rap Beefs, and somehow it’s even better than the first! The genre is overflowing with upstart youngins’ and heart-broken bumkins aiming for the top, stepping on whoever’s toes without paying the proper dues. These are rampant factors in the ancient art of beefing, and damn rappers tend to be some of the best in the business. With the vocal vehicle to do so, a following, and cash to burn, some rappers, like the ones we feature, put some heart into their beefs, and we the people are all the better for it! Covering a series of 4 of the most intense and problematic incidents in the industry (mostly) we figure out exactly how they began, the insults that were traded and the consequences of said beefs.

A Podcast About TV Villains
The medium of television has given us some of the best examples of villains of all time. Whether it is the long-form content, in depth world building, build up, or larger cast, there seems to be a notable gap between the majority of villains who appear on film versus those on television, outside of a select few. You may ask yourself, “who is the best,” and dear listener, Kalvin and Nick are here to settle that debate! Bringing a super scientific tracking method (thanks to Kalvin) we dive in and rate some of the best TV Villains and what makes them so memorable! We dissect what makes a good villain, from the mystery factor to the connection to the protagonist, or whether their mean asses deserve any sympathy or not. Assigning a rating of 1-50, we lay out our evidence before giving a rating, and at the end we settle once and for all, at least for us, who is the best villain. Are there any ‘perfect’ villains? Let us know what you think on Twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast, and listen in and find out on this week’s episode all about TV Villains.

Just in time for one of the biggest elections of our lifetime Kalvin and Nick are here to break down the process in which one votes, how their vote is counted, and what it means when you cast your ballot like you’ve never heard before.

Welcome to primetime podcasting…..b!+#h!

A Podcast About The Pensieve (Harry Potter)
The Pensieve is one of the few objects of immense power within the world of Harry Potter to not have a full-fledged history behind it. Well, Kalvin and Nick came to the conclusion that this couldn’t stand, so we decided to dive into the Pensieve and figure it out for ourselves! Throughout the story of the Boy Who Lived, the Pensieve was incredibly significant just a few times, but when it did come into play you knew something was going down. With little to no background we set our eye on this shallow bowl (don’t s*%t in it), the memory capabilities it holds, how and if it would be useful in the real world, and whether or not you want John Madden or Mike Tyson to narrate your memories. Would you get lost in the past? What memories would be worth saving? Do you share the thing?! Let us know if you’d use a Pensieve and what you would use it for on Twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast and receive a shoutout on the next episode!

These are unique times we live in, and out of necessity, we as a society have had to adapt, including the players in the NBA and the organization as a whole. The NBA Bubble is just that, an adaptation by the NBA to protect the bottom line and Kalvin and Nick are here to talk all about it! With a shortened season and mainlined playoff system, tensions are high, and with contempt for the bubble growing we wanted to find out if it has all even been worth it, where it stands among other major sports bubbles, who the darlings (and the dunces) of the bubble have been, and how the rest of the season will play out. We also predict who will win the ‘chip and we’re dying to know your pick to take the crown of the 2020 NBA Bubble season on Twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast!

A Podcast About Video Game Movie Superlatives
Video game adaptations have a long and storied history of being, to out it lightly, completely terrible. Don't fear though, Kalvin and Nick are here this week dig through the bargain bin full of failed Video Game movie franchises to find some semblance of something good. We give our best shot at giving out our patented Movie Superlatives for categories like Best Character Adaptation, Best Final Boss, and more as we search for light in the darkness. We also discuss why it's so hard to get Video Game movies right. Is it an issue with storytelling or are video game fans' expectations just too unrealistic to meet?

A Podcast About Crazy Nature
There is an unsettling realization that many human beings make at some point in their lives, and that is nature is f*&#$ng “metal” and we don’t stand much of a chance! Kalvin and Nick are diving into the most “metal” animals, plants, and places nature has to offer (in our opinions). Whether the places are the most inhospitable, or the animals will take your arm off in a heartbeat thanks to an evolutionary trait, or even ‘rocket’ theirs at you, we cover all aspects of why nature can be just so f&*$^@#ng “metal” and what we think about it. We take it one step further and rate just how “metal” they are with thanks to the “metal” meter loaned out by @HMPopcornpod! Have you run into an incredibly “metal” animal, place, or plant and lived to tell the tale? Let us know on Twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast!

A Podcast About Dunder Mifflin's Management (The Office)
Dunder Mifflin is undoubtedly one of the least successful fictional companies to have ever existed, but it may have one of the most diverse and entertaining management structures in all of television. If you hadn’t guessed, Kalvin and Nick return to one of our favorite universes to delve into one of the most fascinating facets of Dunder Mifflin, The Management Structure and those who hold management positions! We analyze the personality, work history, management style, employability, and more of each employee that could call him or herself manager during The Office’s run. From the fluid and serious CFO, David Wallace all the way down to the man who only held the Regional Manager position for an hour, Kevin Malone. How did a wunderkind like Ryan fall so hard? Or how did powerhouse woman Jan claw near the top? We’re here to give you the rundown you never knew you needed of the who’s who of Dunder Mifflin.

A Podcast About Selective Listening - Loser - Beck
I’m a loser babbbbyyyy so why don’t you kill meeeeee. Everyone knows the line, whether it’s from the standard ‘rock’ station in your car or the background of a movie. You may have thought while the artist waxes poetic about wax and termites, “wtf is this jabroni talking about”?” Well you're in luck as Kalvin and Nick dissect Loser by Beck, line by line, in this edition of Selective Listening! Painfully random but tongue in cheek sums up this stalwart of the 90s and we aim to figure out just what the hell fueled this Norwegian(???) drug induced nonsense! Can we take it at face value? Or is there more hiding under the forced irony of each line? We aim to find out, while also establishing if we even like the song and how it maintains popularity today. If you like this song let us know why on Twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast, and while you're at it let us know what you think the message of this song from the folk/flunk/rap/buttrock ‘legend’ that is Beck is.

Kalvin and Nick cast their votes, along with a healthy dose of our friends from Twitter, for Disney Movie awards broken down into five categories! Disney movies all share some themes in common like love stories, villains, helpful sidekicks, adventurous plots, and more. Of course it makes the decisions a little tougher with such a range of great animated films to choose from.

A Podcast About The Jejune Institute/Dispatches From Elsewhere
Welcome to the Jejune Institute, a purveyor of divine nonchalance as well as many other oddities and the mortal enemy of the Elsewhere Society. Will you, like countless others (including Kalvin and Nick), fall down the rabbit hole of this Alternate Reality Game that popped up from elsewhere in San Francisco in 2008 and disappeared in 2011 after inducting 10,000 people? Is it a cult, or something more. We dive into the Institute, a 2013 documentary based on the 2008 Alternate Reality Game and the inspiration for AMC’s Dispatches from Elsewhere, and what made it so enthralling that people became “indoctrinated” and some even forgot where the game ends and reality begins. The evil Octavio Coleman, Esq and the exuberant Commander 14 will guide the search for Eva, a mysterious missing girl, as we decode The Dispatches from Elsewhere.

We wind our way through the long history that comprises the Classic Monster scene, from the monster of Frankenstein to the Creature of the Black Lagoon and what makes them so endearing. With dozens of iterations, which ones are the best or most lethal? How did they come to be? And most importantly, how do you stop them? We dive into these subjects and more; while also establishing the thread that connects them all and the primal motivation that drives them forward.

A Podcast About the Malice at the Palace
“Oh my God he’s going into the stands!!” Some of the most famous words ever spoken during a sports brawl (or really just sports in general), leading to one of the most infamous brawls in sports history: The Malice at the Palace. At a time when the NBA was a little more hard-nosed and fights were more common, the nation was shocked on the evening of November 19th, 2004 when a certain someone threw a cup of beer at a player, and the rest, as they say, is history. This week Kalvin and Nick are back to discuss an epic moment in sports history that had reverberations that spread throughout the rest of the NBA and continue to affect the game today. We dive into the twists and turns of an infamous series of events that spanned only a few minutes, but to the players and fans, both present and at home felt like an eternity. Harsh punishments were handed out, punches were thrown, players were doused in beer, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Don’t forget to stay tuned for a bonus preview episode of the 2020 NBA All-Star contest on the heels of this episode, and while you’re at it join the discussion on Twitter @APASomething and @alone_podcast and let us know what you think about the Malice at the Palace, and if you remember where you were when history was made!

A Podcast About George Costanza's Engagement (Seinfeld) with The Thunk Tank Podcast (Part 2)
I'm joined by Joe and Luke from the Thunk Tank Podcast to discuss George Costanza's Engagement in Seinfeld. In this 2-part mega episode we dive DEEEEEEEEEEP into the season 7 story arc while George was engaged to Susan Biddle Ross. We start by talking about when we started watching Seinfeld and why we still love the show after almost 30 years. We discuss why this was such a terrible idea for George and the many exit ramps to the relationship George could have and should have taken. We dive, probably, deeper than anyone else ever has into the psyche of George and why he does the things he does and how it effects the people around him. In this episode, I finally unveil the Costanza Theory on getting engaged and what you should do if you're planning on getting engaged as well as a theory on why Jerry didn't kill Miss Rhode Island's doves. We had a great and long discussion of the entire relationship so much so that we had to split it into two parts so it's easier to consume. At the end of part 2, we have a trivia challenge to see who knows more about nothing. For more from the Thunk Tankers listen to their weekly podcast and follow them on twitter @thunktankers. 2 Minute Iso at the end of Part 2 on the Luke Cage Netflix series.
