Ep 33: The Thing (1982), with C.J. Tuor
We hope all you Hsweeties weren't scared away by last week's first horror-themed episode, because this week we're talking about a REAL horror movie: the 1982 seminal classic John Carpenter's The Thing. And since your hosts are such weenies, we decided to bring in a scary movie pinch hitter for this week's episode! Chicago's own multi-hyphenate comedy man and Jackbox Games's own writer, C.J. Tuor! We discuss all things The Thing on this episode. Well, some things The Thing. But more importantly, in the spirit of The Thing and of the new Jackbox Party Pack 6, C.J. introduces a hidden identity hidden game that is sure to keep you listenerds on the edge of your seats. That is assuming you listen to your podcasts sitting down all the time. Along the way, Mike does his best to NOT use Star Wars terms and Josiah discovers he's maybe not as afraid of scary movies as he thought he was.  You can catch our pal C.J. performing in a bunch of different places in Chicago including the Annoyance Theatre and at Second City. Don't forget to check out his handiwork on the new Jackbox Party Pack 6 as well from Jackbox Games! You can find all these projects and others at his twitter @Cjtuor.

Ep 32: Cabin in the Woods
Well Hsweeties and listenerds, fall is in the air. Feel that crisp chill in the air, get rid of those summer candles, and bust out your medium jacket. But wait...what's that?? Our idyllic fall day is being interrupted by...s-s-s-s-SCARY STUFF. That's right folks, get comfortable, because we're doing another theme month. But don't get TOO comfortable, because the theme this month is all spooky subjects, all the time. We're kicking this month off with the only scary movie that Mike and Josiah had both seen. Of course it had to be Cabin in the Woods. In what may be our most cohesive episode with the least tangents yet, we talk about everything from Wendy's to tripophobia to the Monster Mash to another sure to be classic installment of These Are Riddles, this time written by Mike himself.

Ep 31: Green Day
Mike and Josiah came up with a very funny joke about the Green Day song Wake Me Up When September Ends and they decided to do a whole episode based on it. It's very cool and great and original and no one else has ever made the joke. Don't look it up. Anyway, September is ending, and we're here to wake up Billie Joe Armstrong by figuring out how Star Wars his dang upstart punk band is. We somehow talk more about the song Ocean Avenue by Yellowcard than any actual Green Day song in this episode, but hey, that's HSWII for you. Josiah also debuts a new game called These Are Riddles and it might be his worst yet.  If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com.

Ep 30: Pumpkin Spice Lattes
Today is the autumnal equinox, and to celebrate the change of seasons, this week we're reviewing everyone's favorite seasonal beverage, pumpkin spice lattes! Part pumpkin, part spice, ALL latte, the PSL is a mainstay of fall all over the world. Well, maybe not the world, but definitely the U.S. Do they have PSLs in other countries? Do other countries like pumpkin flavored things as much as Americans do? These are the questions I am asking right now and that we do not cover on the podcast. But we do get into our coffee journeys, weird parts of the X-Men universe, and of course, Mike debuts a new trivia game that will surely have you listenerds yelling at your iPods and Zunes while you play along.  If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com.

Well Hsweeties, Josiah is finally a real Star Wars fan now. He finally saw Solo: A Star Wars Story. And it was fine. That’s right, we’re back to Star Wars on today’s episode and it is CHOCK full of HSWII goodness.

Ep 28: Moving
Programming note! This episode was originally intended to come out the first week of September, but Josiah goofed it up and posted them out of order. Oh well! Welcome back Listenerds! We are finally making good on our promise, nay, our mission, nay OUR PURPOSE to review anything and everything, so we're taking a step away from traditional media and a step towards concepts. This week, we're determining how Star Wars is moving? Like, the idea of moving apartments or houses, etc. We also take a trip to the Wendy's corner and talk about all the new Star Wars news we got at that Disney expo thing, whatever it's called. I refuse to look it up. And we go through our top 3 most moving episodes from Star Wars. Get it? Moving??  If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com.

Ep 27: Jurassic Park
Well, Shark Month is officially over and we're back to your regularly scheduled HSWII programming. Or at least, as regular as this show gets. We're looking at yet another Spielberg movie that pioneered new visual effects and launched a blockbuster franchise, Jurassic Park! This episode gets a little scattershot, which just means we cover a lot of ground! Mike debuts a new game, Dern, and we discover a new segment of the podcast called The Taylor Swift Pinecone sponsored by Rhymezone.com. And we will be reaching out to Rhymezone.com to see if we can actually get that sponsorship, don't worry. If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com.

Ep 26: Shark Month Finale
Well Hsweeties and Listenerds, we've come to the end of Shark Month, or Mark, as it were. We know, we know. We're as sad as you are. Which is to say, probably not that sad. But we had some fun along the way! We had some laughs! And there's more laughs and fun to be had!  We couldn't fit all the shark-related things in one month, so for this finale episode, we're doing some IISW (is it Star Wars?) assessments on 8 more shark things.  Stay tuned to the very end for a sure to be hit game, Marry Shark Marry, and enjoy Josiah getting progressively more upset at Mike for all the dumb shark movies he's now going to have to watch.   If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com.

Ep 25: Jaws
Welcome back Hsweeties and Listenerds! We are knee-deep in Shark Month, or Mark, as it were! (Apologies to all actual people named Mark.) We're reviewing the OG shark movie this week! Jaws! Which neither Mike nor Josiah had seen before they watched it for this episode. You might be asking yourself, did these boys live under a rock their whole lives? How have they not seen so many very important and good movies? And you'd be right in asking those questions! But maybe turn those questions back onto yourself for once. An unexamined life is not worth living, after all. We talk a lot about how good and weird a movie Jaws is in this episode, do a fan cast of a modern remake of Jaws, and Mike brings back an old game, Stranger Things, but in this case, it's called Stranger Things or Jaws, but don't worry, it's still a Star Wars trivia game.

Ep 24: Sharknado
Welcome to week two of Shark Month listenerds! Or as we call it here in the industry, Mark! We can't get enough sharks over here at A Good Podcast Studios. So of course we HAD to do the most important shark movie, arguably and regrettably, of the last decade: Sharknado! Mike and Josiah dig deep into the weird world of The Asylum film studio and emerge stinky and dirty from the filth of the masses. This episode is a little shorter than usual because we lost a bit of audio during recording, but don't worry, you just missed out on a typical blistering hot HSWII take and Josiah complaining about people on the Internet. So pretty par for the course. If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com. Or hit us up on Instagram and Twitter @howstarwarsisit.

Ep 23: Shark Tank, with Caitlyn Cerza
(Just a quick heads up, Josiah's audio sounds a little rough for the first 20 minutes of the episode because his computer was being a punk, so we had to use the backup Skype recording. Everything after that is the usual quality though!) Uh-oh, Hsweeties! The summer is coming to a close, and you know what that means! That's right, it's Shark Week! Or rather, it WAS Shark Week. Now it's Shark MONTH. We're kicking off a whole month of shark-themed episodes because it's our podcast, and we do whatever makes us laugh.  And speaking of stuff that makes us laugh, we have the amazing and hilarious Chicago actor, artist, and all-around awesome gal Caitlyn Cerza on the podcast today! Mike is also her boyfriend! Nice! Mike and Caitlyn are experts on the tv show that is the most quintessential of all shark media, Shark Tank. We also take a trip to the Wendy's Corner, the Alaska Corner, and even discover a new corner, the Musical Corner! Mike, of course, debuts a new game, and we talk a lot about the Backstreet Boys and Desperate Housewives. If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com.

Ep 22: The Matrix
(Hey Hsweeties?? It's me, Josiah. The Matrix is a good movie! It's a good dang movie! Dang! If only it wasn't illegal for me to have seen this movie when it came out! If only I wouldn't have gone to jail for seeing it before I was 17! I missed out on liking this movie for so many years! Ugh! Dang!) Mike is in The One: A Matrix Parody Musical in Chicago at The Den Theatre, and we've been hyping it up for weeks, so we're celebrating the opening of the show by finally reviewing The Matrix! Josiah had never seen it, and he watched it just for this episode! We talked a lot about how The Matrix is a cool and good movie. We dip into some metaphysics so, yeah, we like to party. And Mike finally put on his reporter hat and made his way into the field for some real hard hitting interviews with the cast of The One.

Ep 21: Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones
After an exhausting summer of blockbusters, we are finally returning to our core competency. That's right Hsweeties. We're back with a real, genuine Star War! This episode is a little longer than usual just because we had WAY too much fun talking about the wild and wacky weirdness that is Attack of the Clones. Mike hits us with some fun Star Wars facts and trivia, as always, (my personal favorite was the tidbit about a cameo by a certain ridiculously famous boy band) and Josiah debuts a fun twist on Who's That Quotemon? called Attack of the Whose That Clonemon? A little wordy? No! It's perfect! Back off! If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com. Or hit us up on Instagram and Twitter @howstarwarsisit.

Ep 20: Lion King
Well. We finally did it. We finally did the dang thing. We've been talking smack about the new "live action" Lion King for TOO long. It was finally time to put up or shut up. And when have you known us to ever shut up?? In this episode, Josiah debuts a sure to be fan favorite new game, Truth or Lion, and there are also some EXTREMELY hot takes in this episode, especially if you're a fan of the new Lion King, Beyonce, or Wolf Creek Lodge, so buyer beware. Also we recorded this before the new Lion King was released in theaters, and early reviews are proving our suspicions that the movie is bad to be correct. So take that all of our HATERS.

Ep 19: Stranger Things
Just now when I was typing this I was like, wait, is Stranger Things a Shakespeare reference from Hamlet?? Turns out no, the quote is "There are more things in heaven and earth..." not stranger things, so we are good folks, we are good. I would have been very ashamed if I didn't realize the title of this show was a Shakespeare reference until JUST now. Anyway, this episode is about Stranger Things! What a fun show. We don't remember why we like it, but that seems to be a recurring theme with us. About half of this ep is the fun new game that Josiah invented, creatively titled Stranger Things. But it's a fun one, I promise! And don't worry folks, there's no spoilers in this episode. We recorded it before season 3 of Stranger Things dropped. So you are free to listen, unafraid of being spoiled! If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com. Or hit us up on Instagram and Twitter @howstarwarsisit.

Ep 18: Spider-Man 2
🎵Josiah and Mike, Josiah and Mike Do whatever podcasters like Make a show, any size Actually it's an hour, sorry about the lies Look out! Here come Josiah and Mike🎵 Yes, thank you, I think this podcasting parody of the Spider-Man theme song is my best work as well. We're talking about Spider-Man 2 this week in conjunction with the newest second Spider-Man film. Man. It's pretty wild that there are essentially three Spider-Man 2's now. That's two many. Too many. Sorry. Anyway, we get into this really good movie this week and give it an official rating on the HSWII scale. We talk about Jesus, we talk about Templeton the rat from Charlotte's Web, and Mike debuts a great new version of Who's That Quotemon? specifically tailored for all your Spider-Man wants and desires.  If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com.

Ep 17: Toy Story
Gosh, this episode gets real cute Hsweeties. It just gets real cute. Apparently one of Mike's favorite movies is Toy Story! Isn't that cute?? He can like, quote the whole thing. And he pretty much does. There's a new Toy Story movie coming out, and we get pretty nostalgic about the original Toy Story this episode, and nostalgic about other things, including our childhood toys and using our imaginations! Mike also introduces a new game, but I don't remember if it had a name. I don't think it did. Let's name it right here. We can say something dumb and pretend Mike come up with it and make him look like a real ding dong. How about...No Doy, What's This Toy? Yeah, that's pretty dumb. Wow Mike, come up with better names for things, geez. If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com. Or hit us up on Instagram and Twitter @howstarwarsisit.

Ep 16: Men in Black
We are continuing to ride the sweet wave of summer blockbuster releases as inspiration for episode topics! There's a new Men in Black movie! It looks fun and cool. So we decided to revisit the original Men in Black (which Mike watched for the first time for this episode!) to determine once and for all how Star Wars it is. This episode has everything!  A list of all the Will Smith movies! A list of all the Jedi Masters and their Padawans! Of course a new game, called Will Will Smith...? A great pitch for a new Star Wars animated series starring Sith lords as high schoolers! A way to make the periodic table of the elements fun and memorable! I would say it's ground breaking, but I won't, and you'll understand why after you listen to the episode. If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com.

Ep 15: X-Men 3: The Last Stand
Hey there Hsweeties! Another X-Men movie came out this last weekend, and boy howdy, sure sounds like it was a real clunker, huh? A real stinker, wasn't it? A big ol' box office bomb. Well don't worry! We're not talking about that one. We're talking about the ORIGINAL X-Men cinematic stinker! X-Men: The Last Stand, aka X3 gets an official HSWII scale rating this week, but not before we get another Alaska update from Josiah to learn some important moose facts and get a new game from Mike where he shares some of the strangest X-Men storylines to date. All this and more on this week's HSWII! If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com. Or hit us up on Instagram and Twitter @howstarwarsisit.

Ep 14: Veggie Tales, with Allie Gospel
Don't worry baby kids, no spoilers this week! And since we talked about the sex and violence filled Game of Thrones last week, we thought we'd get a bit more wholesome this week with the educational Christian children's cartoon, Veggie Tales. And we have our second guest! Chicago performer and improviser and all around funny and great gal, Allie Gospel! Also yes, she and Mike are siblings.  So how Star Wars is Veggie Tales? We take a meandering route to the answer, including stops along the way to discuss the comedic genius that is Silly Songs with Larry, to play Mike's sure to be classic game "Poe, Poe, or Po?", and we get a little hung up discussing the female Veggie Tales characters, in particular Esther and her overtly feminine proportions. It's just...it's a lot. If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com. Or hit us up on Instagram and Twitter @howstarwarsisit.

*SPOILERS* Ep 13: Game of Thrones *SPOILERS*
*SPOILERS* HARK AND HEAR, YE PODCAST LISTENERS, FOR THIS BE SPOILER TERRITORY. TURN BACK, GO NO FURTHER, LEST YE BE SPOILED FOR ETERNITY! *SPOILERS* Hey Hsweeties, we've got spoilers in this episode for Game of Thrones, specifically the finale from last week! So tread carefully! Welcome to our most requested episode topic! Game of Thrones! Mike has watched every episode. Josiah has watched one episode, more specifically, the finale. So that's probably enough to rate it on the HSWII Scale, right?? We discuss the show as a whole, the finale in particular, and play a fun new game IIGOT (Is It Game of Thrones) where Josiah makes blanket statement assumptions about the show (having only seen the finale) and Mike tells him if he's correct or not. It's a fun time! Also, just a peek behind the curtain, I, Josiah, write these episode descriptions, and I don't remember enough about Game of Thrones to put any more specifics here. So...sorry about that. If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com. Or hit us up on Instagram and Twitter @howstarwarsisit.

Ep 12: Aladdin
Quick heads up, the audio quality on Mike's end is a little funky and not up to our normal standards, however we decided to release it anyway .We think we know why it messed up, so it'll hopefully be fixed in the future. Sorry all! It was our first time recording remotely. Because- Josiah is in Alaska! What! That's wild. We drop some Alaska facts on you this episode, and dip into some nostalgia with the 1992 animated classic Aladdin. The new live action adaptation is coming out this week, so we figured we'd determine once and for all how Star Wars the original is. We also finally gave a name to our hot takes about CGI, so enjoy a rousing segment of CGWhy? where we discuss the disturbing blue CGI characters that have been on everyone's minds recently: Genie, Sonic, and Watto.

We're probably the first podcast to have the idea to have a guest!  We're rating Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith this week. Our guest and prequel expert Michael DeLaney joins us to discuss the incredibly weird logic of the prequels, to give us a fan and friend perspective on our own podcast, and to bring us a new game that we didn't name because naming things is sometimes hard!

So we thought we'd give you a little more of that HSWII flavor you know and love to celebrate the only holiday that is based on a pun from a movie franchise and is also not a real holiday.  Mike and Josiah have this episode stuffed to the gills with games, segments, and even some fun characters?? What?? This is unprecedented! Enjoy this diversion from our usual formula, and May the Fourth be with you! If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com.

Ep 8: Avengers: Infinity War
We are, somewhat mercifully for our sanity, coming to the end of Aprilvengers month! In this episode, we ostensibly talk about Infinity War, but really analyze how Star Wars the Marvel Cinematic Universe is as a whole. We also talk about the movie Clue a bunch! And we pull a Nick Fury and draft Star Wars characters into our ideal Avengers team. It's a wild ride y'all. Just a heads up, we can't stress this enough, next week's episode will be covering Avengers: Endgame. There will be spoilers! Don't listen to that episode until you've seen the movie!

Ep 7: Captain America: Civil War (and Celebration!)
Happy Celebration True Hiswiities! I don't remember how I spelled that last time, so I'm just going to roll with it.  We're coming to you LIVE from Chicago during Star Wars Celebration! To clarify, we were not recording live AT Celebration but we WERE recording live in Chicago. And Mike got to go to Celebration for a few hours and to some cool meet ups! So. Still pretty cool.  We're rounding the corner of Aprilvengers month and discussing Civil War this week. Join us as we gaze into the ouroboros that is Marvel copying Star Wars and then Disney buying everything only for Star Wars to then start copying Marvel. It's maddening. We barely make it through this episode. However, we take some time and lighten the mood with a new sure to be fan favorite game, Civil War or Civil War? and also we recorded a bonus segment about Celebration and our reactions to the Episode IX trailer that dropped! The audio is not great, because it was recorded last minute on our phones, so apologies in advance for that. If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com.

Ep 6: Avengers: Age of Ultron
*That one Jimmy Fallon SNL character voice that Mike does* And we're baaack! Aprilvengers month is going STRONG. We are covering our collective least favorite movie in the Avengers franchise, Age of Ultron. But just because we don't like it, doesn't mean it ain't Star Wars! Please join us as we talk a liiiiittle bit about Age of Ultron and a lot of bit about how tired Age of Ultron makes us. Also stay tuned until the end for our new sexy hit game, Ship It! aka Millennium Falcon Pennywise! If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com.

Ep 5: The Avengers
We're finally dipping our toe outside the incredibly comfortable pool of Star Wars movies! But fear not, True Hswiities, we're not going too far! We're staying in the house of mouse and doing a big ol' cannonball into the Marvel cinematic universe! In celebration of Avengers: Endgame coming out at the end of April, we are dubbing this month Aprilvengers Month here at HSWII! We're kicking off week one by examining the 2012 flick The Avengers, the culmination of years and years of teases and crossovers by Marvel Studios, and finally putting to rest the age old question: How Star Wars Is It? But don't worry, we still manage to discuss how much we love parents, Mike's brush with viral Youtube fame, and somewhat inexplicably, Wendy's again. We just love Wendy's I guess.  If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com. Or hit us up on Instagram and Twitter @howstarwarsisit.

Ep 4: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
Yeah, you know what time it is. It's time to talk about how Star Wars Rogue One is and to somehow get lost along the way talking about Adam Sandler's friendships and Christian rock music. What else have you come to expect from How Star Wars Is It?, the ONLY podcast brave enough to examine all of pop culture and evaluate it on the one scale that truly matters. Also shout out to the cool folks we met at C2E2 this past weekend! Especially to those of you who took a card and followed us on social media! Y'all are the MOST Star Wars of them all.

Ep 3: Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens
Against all odds, it's time for another episode of How Star Wars Is It? We bring things into the modern era this week and talk about Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens! We actually like the movie, unlike some killjoys. But that's not important. What's important is how STAR WARS it is. What's also important is apparently how movies have too high frame rates these days, how Charmander has to wait FOREVER to learn a good fire move, and how big Chewbacca's penis might be. You know! A classic HSWII episode. If you have any comments or suggestions, you can email us at agoodpodcast@gmail.com. Or hit us up on Instagram and Twitter @howstarwarsisit.
