You’re on your lunch break and we're on ours, so let's spend it together! Landon Sheetz and Joey Loboda, two people you’ve never met, are the creators of Call In Mockery (a TV show you’ve never seen). Now, they present to you an audio show you’ve never heard of...UNTIL NOW. Each week, they discuss their eclectic lunch palettes, as well as pop culture, talk to guests, compare interdimensional hypotheses, and write podcast bios in the 3rd person. Join us, um, I mean JOIN "THEM”, won’t you?
This episode title does not represent your reaction to this episode, as you will surely be laughing! Landon and Joey talk shop about comedians stealing jokes, Joey rails against late night comedy shows, and they both do perfect Johnny Carson impressions - to name only a few of the many, obviously connected talking points covered in this fine episode of your favorite podcast about eating lunch with your friends, Lunch Break!
The Guys are back to tear down the problematic sensationalization and false deification of Celebrity that is the Oscars, as well as talk about a lady that farted in a store and a guy that fell out of a chair. These are our enlightened stinkers! Er-- enlightened thinkers!
AT LAST, MY BOY...
Let us be every voice you've ever heard inside your head as Joey Loboda and special guest Joey Hoffman team up to destroy Landon's childlike admiration for the epic conclusion to the Skywalker/Star Wars Saga.
Actually, Landon does well to school the 2 Joeyz on the greater mythical implications this finale has for the series as a whole and how exactly this 9th entry admirably attempts the nearly impossible task of wrapping up a 40+ year saga as well as play as an interesting synthesis of the ideas at work in the Disney Sequel Trilogy. It is a lively, divisive discussion where 3 dudes raise their voices about fake stuff that doesn't matter! If this episode description is any indication, there are a lot of complex and complicated feelings about this one!
Yes, the movie came out a long time ago at this point. Yes, everyone has talked about it way too much at this point...
But don't you want these three (straight white male) perspectives?
Landon and Joey crack open the big box o' presidential candidates and root around to see which ones Spark Joy and which ones Yuck Their Yum. By the end, they will OFFICIALLY ENDORSE A CANDIDATE, as is tradition for big time media players. Not sure who you're voting for? This is your comprehensive guide to who the candidates are and what they'll do for you!
Joey and Landon try a very special Oreo flavor, then Joey sings 76 Trombones, then they talk about Joker, then they talk about toothpaste, then they do the Game of Thrones theme song, then they talk about Tyler Perry, then........ (not necessarily in that order).
Landon and Joey sit down to COMPLETELY DECIMATE the opening monologue from the 2020 Golden Globes. Is it already too late to be weighing in on this non-story? Of course! But here it is anyway, you cheeky little mates, you!
Landon and Joey ring in the New Year with a delectable Australian treat! They talk about all the movies and shows they saw over holiday break (including some thoughts on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker), how the holidays went for them (and for Ashton and Mila), and make some very important resolutions for the year.
Hark! A little gift from the secret podcast vault!
3 years ago, Landon and Joey put out a pilot episode that was also a Christmas special of their podcast Not Good Not Bad. So for Christmas this year, Landon and Joey proudly give you the gift of time travel: listen to some dated jokes, a couple of Christmas classics (or, soon-to-be classics), and some really good (bad) impressions!
Happy Holidays, to you and yours (your what?!! Always a weird thing to say)
Joey and Landon try Almond Milk Nog, Hot Cocoa Hershey's Kisses, and not to completely run the show into the ground. 2 out of 3 ain't bad! They also talk about the No Time To Die trailer, Star Wars marketing, and Landon's cracked ribs.

How is that for a tantalizing title!!!! But really, Joey and Landon eat Lays chips and talk about Silicon Valley, a documentary about New York accents, tea lattes, and BelVita breakfast biscuits. So, ya know... sexy!
Joey, Landon, and a very special guest sit down to try the new Holiday Coca-Cola Flavors: Cinnamon Coke and Winter Spiced Cranberry! They also try Trader Joe's World Famous Jingle Jangle. Does it live up to the hype? Does the constant drinking, eating, and belching become way too disturbing to listen to? Find out!
Joey and Landon ponder new names for the show, whether they should rate the snacks they eat, and whether a pipe is always just a pipe or sometimes maybe more... they also chat with Lori, Meg's Dad(s?), and Foghorn Leghorn. Lastly but not leastly, they end the show with a brand new game show!
The Guys get back in the groove after a week off! They try the new Butterfinger, Landon defends Signs and most of "M. Night" Shyamalan's oeuvre, and Joey is visited by a Weather Expert named Al! And their censor button is broken so there might be some swears! Sorry!
The Guys take the Ballroom stage at the Hotel Ottumwa for the 10th Annual Halloweenapalooza in Ottumwa, IA. They treat their audience to a slideshow of their spooky night in the hotel room (great for a podcast!), review an Ottumwa local favorite snack live on stage, unleash an impossibly original and unprecedented battle between a couple of horror's scariest spooksters, tell some scary stories, and - with the help of a special audience member - break the story for their brand new Scariest Movie Ever that they are writing for a Big Movie Studio!
Post-live show, Joey and Landon discuss their great triumph on stage this past weekend, and the food they ate before going on that big stage. They also talk postal flubs from online merchants and overall just kind of chill out after their huge, successful(!) weekend.
Joey and Landon sit down to taste test and review some various pumpkin and candy corn flavored treats in time for your Allhalloween celebrations with a couple of off-mic guests. But have no fear (ok, have a little fear - it is Allhalloween after all!), the guys do end up telling a scary story... that may or may not take place in a bathroom! And, as ever, they talk about much, much more than that.
Landon and Joey will be performing a LIVE episode of Lunch Break at the 10th Annual Halloweenapalooza in Ottumwa, IA on October 11th at 9 PM. Join them, and see all of the great shows and events at this year's Halloweenapalooza, by getting tickets at halloweenapalooza.wixsite.com.
Landon and Joey get ready for their terrifying foray into the 10th Annual Halloweenapalooza by telling some scary stories from their real, true lives. If these excite you even a little, you'll die to hear the ones they haven't told! Also they eat Pumpkin Spice Milano Cookies and talk about some movies Joey has watched recently. But mostly, THEY TERRIFY YOU WITH THEIR STORIES!!!!
Joey and Landon crack the case on the 2019 Mystery Oreo flavor! They also yuck it up to the Roast of Alec Baldwin and Joey tells the story of how he - just this past weekend - found out what Weird Al is all about while at a wedding.
Joey and Landon try the new Maple Creme Oreos, breakdown the state of stand-up comedy (because no one has talked about that before!), and Joey tells a story about someone peeing - another great episode!
See Lunch Break LIVE Oct. 11, 2019 in Ottumwa, IA at the 10th Annual HALLOWEENAPALOOZA:
This week, the guys do away with the formalities of a recording session and a planned episode of the HIT PODCAST Lunch Break and instead present to you the pilot episode of their original podcast, Not Good Not Bad, which was recorded in 2016. If you are at all intrigued to see from where the patented Lunch Break humor arose, look no further. Was it best to keep this locked away in the NGNB vault? Did they really want to put this out instead of an episode or were they just too busy to get around to recording a new one? UP TO YOU, DEAR LISTENER!
Landon and Joey (yes, Joey! Not someone else!) talk about some stuff that might sound familiar, honestly. But when Landon and Joey - yes, Joey!!! - talk, there's always something funny going on!
First they talk about lunch, then stuff they've watched, then it's story time... you know how it goes. Then, Landon and JOEY(!) are abruptly interrupted by a surprise visit from someone who definitely was not supposed to see Landon and Joey (the real, living Joey) recording!
The Guys have a snack, talk an Amazing documentary that Landon found (having no prior knowledge of it at all!), listen to some clips from the World's Funniest Comedian and the MTV Video Music Awards, and of course... Joey regales you, kind listener, with another distressing story!
This week, The Guys discuss passionately and eloquently the disturbing and idiotic hypocrisy of gun worship culture in America for over 15 straight minutes. Then, they decide to cut all of that. SO actually, this week The Guys talk Chuck E. Cheese, Kevin James, and Joey tells a harrowing story about a flat tire!
There comes a time in every podcast feed that the hosts must discuss one of the most important film franchises of our time: Rush Hour. This is that time for the brave boys of Lunch Break. Also, they talk turkey (really!) and the Amazon Original "The Boys." And try a very special treat! Wow, what an episode!!!
You all thought we were done? HA! This episode proves that not only are we NOT DONE, we're at the TOP of our podcasting abilities these days! Landon sells out by reading an ad, the Guy's swap hazelnut stories whilst trying a new yum-yum, then they try to figure out if "Into The Spiderverse-Man" should be cancelled! Uncle Prowler is coming...you've been warned!
Also, please check out our new podcast "Grand Moff Talkin'" if you like us and/or Star Wars. Thanks.

It's Landon's last day in the office! The Guys celebrate (mourn????) the big send-off with a REAL LUNCH FOR ONCE! Will Joey and Landon be forced to clock back in from their Lunch Break permanently? Is this the premature pruning of a budding friendship barely in it's infancy? Or will the Guys overcome their geological rejiggering and face Lunch Break stronger than ever? One thing is for sure: if you have misophonia, you'll be pissed at this episode!
BONUS!! Stick around at the end for the INTRO of the Guy's NEW limited-series podcast, debuting in August!

It's back to business as usual this week! No guests, no movie reviews, just some good ol' fashioned lunch on this here break. The Guys try a famil- er, FAN SUBMITTED snack that is supposed to taste bad. Will it actually taste bad? Or just be good, and therefore not that interesting? They also head to the 80s to dive into the strange things happening on season 3 of Stranger Things. No spoilers! So come with us, throw on your Walkman, and enter the small room in the back of Blockbuster, where all your favorite movies were kept! Also, a guest or two actually do stop by. Sorry :)

Marvel says GOOD-BYE to Phase 3 of the MCU with an epilogue film worthy of a very special episode of Lunch Break! Landon and Joey discuss the triumph, heartbreak, and HAPPY-ness ;) of the web-slinging hero we all know as...........Night Monkey
Landon and Joey welcome Landon’s brother (and fellow podcaster) onto the show for a special cross-promotional episode that will surely entice both of our audiences to say “Joey and Landon should be arrested.” The guys all try a special wedding snack and then get down to business: after last week’s Toy Story 4 review episode, they give their thoughts on Collider.com’s Definitive Pixar Movie Ranking List. Surely they agree with the whole thing! Layne co-hosts the podcast “and so we meet again” with his wife, Anna. You can find their show wherever you listen to Lunch Break, and keep an eye out for their upcoming episode with Landon and Joey! Go ahead and rate us on iTunes while it still exists.

Toy Story is the single most important film franchise of our lifetime. If you agree with that: join us. If you don't: join us and be converted to the truth. Toy Story 4 is out now! Go see it! Then listen to us break it aaaallll down!
OJ on Twitter! Cuba's a handful! The Tonight Show with Trevor Noah! Landon yells at Keanu Reeves! Mole Asses! But most importantly: the Guys write National Lampoon's Studies Abroad!

People usually say, "Don't listen to haters, ignore the internet trolls!" but Landon and Joey are no strangers to criticism! That's why they decided to meet with two of Lunch Break's most vocal critics in person for a raw discussion on how the show sucks and what they can do to make it more bearable. How did they get these two anti-Lunchers to appear on mic? Because they are Landon's wife, Kelsey, and Joey's brother, Michael, of course!
The Guys discuss a potential fight! And E3! But don't forget the snacks and movies! Or do! I'm trying to be less controlling! A Not Good Not Bad Production, brought to you by the Prescribed Films Podcast Network
Lunch time once again! This week the guys have some fun discussing alleged actions that took place at an alleged place they allegedly worked! Then, they discuss what they've been watching and attend the 1st Annual Future Roasts!
Do you like movies? I sure hope so. After trying a new liquid elixir, Landon and Joey discuss the recent controversy over the newest actor to be yelled at for signing on to don Batman’s cowl, and then yell at each other during a game of “Who Would Play Me in the Story of My Life?” Oh, they also get interrupted 800 times!

You wanted it, everybody. You all wanted it. This week, Joey and Landon strip themselves of their ever present "performer masks" and give you an episode devoid of characters. The very characters upon which they built their empire are not good enough for you, apparently! Maybe they talk about life, or love, or true cinema, or maybe how the pursuit of happiness is nothing but a carrot on a stick. The point is: they get real and raw, no holds barred. It's like Marc Maron snorted creatine and then interviewed Joe Rogan. Is that what you wanted? BECAUSE THAT'S. WHAT. THIS. IS. LIKE.
It's the beginning of May, which means we just crested the proverbial hump on the proverbial road toward the proverbial holiday know as HALLOWEEN! So dim the lights, grab a cuppa (our British fans get it!), and listen in as Landon and Joey weave some of the darkest tails of terror found in the darkest, most disgusting place in the world: the Internet. Don't say we didn't warn you!
It may seem like summer is just arriving, but we all know that Winter Is Here!! Landon and Joey are ecstatic to be joined on this special episode by YouTube celebrity, and noted Game of Thrones mega-fan, ANDY TINKIN to discuss what Season 8 of the hit show means to each of them before recreating that sure-to-be iconic Winterfell scene from last week’s episode! All that, right after Landon feels the need to relay some medical horror stories on a show that people listen to while they’re eating lunch! And we wonder why we haven’t meshed with any sponsors yet! Enjoy!
It's the big one, folks! After the breakout success of the Guys' "Us" bonus episode, they return to the well for a film 11 years in the making, AVENGERS: ENDGAME. Joey and Landon join their guest, Other Joey, for a Friday night screening of the movie then record this episode directly after at 1 AM. First, a spoiler-free review, then after that anything goes! It's a delirious journey through three brains which have been turned to mush over the previous 3 hours as they try to come to come to terms with what they just saw and how to even begin podcasting about it. Do they do a good job? Or will the follow-up episode be filled with apologies and corrections? Join in on the conversation! Email firstname.lastname@example.org, or post on our Facebook or Instagram to weigh in! We will continue this conversation on another episode after we have slept and had time to reflect on how stupid we sound. Leave a review on iTunes or whatever! I'm going to bed now.
Landon and Joey “VIEW” the tape of a hot controversy (just listen, you’ll get the stupid joke) then they prepare for their special Avengers: Endgame episode by helping Kevin Feige and the Marvel crew create the new official Avengers theme song!
How much content can someone shove into 30 minutes? BEHOLD, THE MASTERS! A huge thank you to Post Malone and Zane Lowe for stopping by to talking musicianship and influences! Afterwards, the Guys try a brand-new snack, trade unbelievable basketball stories, get patriotic, then launch into a game of "Sound Effects". Will the episode go smoothly? Listen and find out!
Will the Guys stop getting interrupted long enough to finish recording this episode before it's supposed to come out? Please tell us they were at least able to get through one of their famous segments! PLEASE!
Sure we talk snacks and movies, but what you'll really want to stay for is the guys PLAYING MUSIC in their newest segment! The fun songs start right after Landon and Joey almost decide to liquidate their friendship during a big fight. Who was in the right? I'm on Joey's side! And Joey definitely didn't write this episode description. Enjoy!
Yeah, this ep has spoilers, ok? "Us" has taken the nation by storm and it's time for the Guys to break it down and try to make sense of it all. Will they succeed? Will they join the soulless shadows below? Or will people say “Why do we care what two guys we went to high school with think about a movie?” Sounds juicy!
Hello! Enjoy your lunch break with us as we discuss trends in snack food, explain that movies exist AND that they can be good OR bad, then play a round of Landon’s brand new game: Nogans. If you listen to the episode, you’ll even hear how that word is pronounced!
Look, we've gotten a few more listens than we expected to have on our first few episodes, so this one goes out to that person! As a way to say thank you, and make people sick of our podcast even faster, we say "PISH-POSH" to the one-per-week rule today and give you our BONUS GIRL SCOUT COOKIES EPISODE! Landon and Joey use their hard-earned lunch break to test a few of these renowned treats, but what starts as a lighthearted discussion quickly devolves into an uncovering of the darkest conspiracies of America's collective psyche. "Part Serial, part stupid, with guest appearances by Steve Aoki and Bill Maher, THIS is Lunch Break springing forth from it's cocoon with newfound pertinency for our modern times." - Girls' Life Magazine
A Not Good Not Bad Production, 2019
Welcome back! This week we perfectly re-enact one of the greatest scenes in film history, explain to parents why children are so frightened of Momo, and discuss the ramifications of Heinz pre-mixing our mayonnaise and mustard for us. We talk mouth snacks? Yeh. We talk brain snacks? Yup. But YOU’LL be the one who’s stuffed when we serve up our newest segment, “Stella Artose”, and give you a masterclass in crafting a commercial fit for our modern world!
Grab one of those weird protein bars made out of cricket powder and pop in your earbuds, cuz it’s Lunch Break! The guys snack, talk to Craig T. Nelson and John C. Reilly, discuss the power of the storyboard, completely fix horror movies, tell Jokes for Blokes, and do some more stuff. Listen! Please!
Welcome to Lunch Break! The inaugural episode kicks off with Joey and Landon discussing what's on their lunch plates, what content they've been snacking on lately, and chat with some high-profile guests like Gilbert Gottfried, plus much more! Why should you care? Not for me to say, old chum. Take a load off on your lunch break by spending it with us!
This is it, folks: the big trailer for Lunch Break is here! You're on your lunch break and we're on ours, so let's spend it together! Landon Sheetz and Joey Loboda, the creators of Call In Mockery (a TV show you’ve never seen), now present to you an audio show you’ve never heard of...UNTIL NOW. The trailer explains it all. Join us, won’t you?
