Episode 10: Video Games That Broke Your Heart

We have a connection with video games that goes beyond entertainment. The best video games can forge a deep emotional connection with us that lasts a lifetime. Sometimes, this also means that video games can break your heart.

Episode 9: Fictional Sports Teams

Whether or not you’re a fan of the sports ball teams such as the foot ball or the base ball or the hockey ball, there’s a good chance that you’re a fan of sports movies. At their best, they showcase the ability of a group of teammates to band together and overcome obstacles to win the championship. At their worst, Joey from “Friends” makes a chimpanzee look like John Houseman.

Join non-sports fan Jeff as he probes the best fictional sports teams with Michael and Sports Jeopardy! Champion Richard. Buckle up your jockstraps and get ready for a home run dunk touchdown thing!

So join Michael, Richard and Jeff as we go…in search of…the Mt. Rushmore of Wonders of the World.

Episode 6: Imaginary Features of Your Future Imaginary Home

For as long as Man has sought shelter, so too has Man sought to make his shelter more comfortable. But where prehistoric man’s comforts involved finding softer moss for a bed, today’s people demand the latest in luxury, extravagance and random junk.

Episode 3: Non-Bond Spies

Sit back, grab a martini and listen to our latest edition of the Mt. Rushmore podcast. But HEYHEYHEY don’t shake it! You’re watering it down! Grrr…

This week, we take a look at spies who may have a better understanding of mixology than 007 does. Michael and Richard argue about what makes a spy a spy, while Jeff wishes he could take a deep undercover mission in Siberia rather than dealing with this.

Addendum to Episode 2: How to eat Cap’n Crunch

I do not advise eating Cap’n Crunch. It shreds the roof of your mouth with its sharp edges and then it burrows into your pulpy flesh like some sort of sand beetle.

Episode 2: Kids Cereals

Nothing says being a kid more than waking up on Saturday morning, pouring yourself a big bowl of nutritionally-questionable cereal and watching some nutritionally-questionable cartoons. And nothing says the Mt. Rushmore Podcast more than Richard and Michael arguing over the Mt. Rushmore of Kids Cereals. Meanwhile, Jeff is thoroughly disgusted by a shocking revelation that will make us the targets of BIG MILK.
