How many of the Wonders of the World were built by aliens? Probably a lot of them! We’re debating the Mt. Rushmore of the Wonders of the World – whether they are man-made or natural, ancient or modern, fictional or real. And SPOILER ALERT – the actual Mt. Rushmore didn’t make either of our lists.
So join Michael, Richard and Jeff as we go…in search of…the Mt. Rushmore of Wonders of the World.

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.

When it comes to wrestling, bad guys get to have all of the fun. They get to insult the crowd, cheat, ignore the refs and generally play by their own rules.

Some artists only need one album to create a lasting legacy. In this edition of the Mt. Rushmore Podcast, Michael and Richard present Jeff with their choices for the Mt. Rushmore of One and Done Albums – great albums by bands that only put out one album. WARNING: expect a heavy dose of grunge talk.

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.

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.
However, if you’re into that sort of thing, here is a romanticized description of this awful, awful cereal from Neal Stephenson’s ‘Cryptonomicon’.
Excerpt from ‘Cryptonomicon’
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.
What better way to kick off the Mt. Rushmore Podcast with a debate on the Mt. Rushmore of Fictional Presidents? Jeff moderates as Richard and Michael debate the merits of the heroic, idiotic and sometimes evil men who lead us (the fictional ones, of course).
Michael Winfield and Richard Manfredi argue. A lot. About everything. But mostly about the Mt Rushmores of Life: the four things that best represent any particular category. It could be sports, music, films, cereal or months of the year – there’s a good chance that Michael and Richard have a strong opinion on whose Mt Rushmore is the best.
To save their friendship, they’ve turned to the most reasonable person they know – Jeff Hopkins. Jeff is serving as judge and jury as he moderates their “discussions” on the merits of their Mt Rushmore of Anything and then rules on whose was best.
(NOTE: Jeff’s decisions are final and binding, in accordance with the US Fair Podcast Act of 2010.)
