I Saw That Years AGo - Steven Seagal is Marked for Death

http://istya.libsyn.com/ep-309-marke...

Also for anyone here that listens to the show regularly - unexpected family commitments mean I won't to record regularly for a while. I'm going to try to snatch time with Martyn where I can, but my schedule is going to be unpredictable and I'm not sure for how long.

We're definitely going to keep on recording as it's so much fun for both of us, but you'll just have to wait to be surprised by when a show goes up rather than looking forward to it at a regular time. I'm not sure what's happening with Patreon and all that sort of stuff - I think Martyn is going to be in charge of figuring out how that works.

This will be show our last for a little bit, so enjoy it and don't forget to visit the more than 300 other shows we've done on our website in the meantime. (And stay subscribed to our feed and whatnot so you know when new shows are up.)

I Saw That Years Ago - Robert Redford's looking for... THE HOT ROCK. With special guest Jason Lenzi from Plaid Stallions

Jason is one of the funniest guests we have had on. He's made TV shows, done voiceovers and even started his own toy company, creating products for Star Trek and more. He's also one-half of Pod Stallions, the podcast of the fantastic Plaid Stallions retro toy and nostalgia site. I think this is longest show we've ever put up, as there was so much to talk and laugh about.

Please share this as much as you can with as many people as you can. Life is really taking up all my time at the moment. I'm not able to share the show in as many places as it deserves to be heard.

A new podcast coming soon from Marketplace callled How We Survive looks interesting and is hosted by Molly Wood who I’ve loved listening to since the Buzz Out Loud days.

I enjoy the Mindscape podcast most weeks, but last week's episode was particularly entertaining!

C. Thi Nguyen on Games, Art, Values, and Agency

They go into questions like what makes a game a game, why we play games, and how they bleed into real life. Not just about video games but I was pleasantly surprised by how well these 2 non-experts seem to "get" video games and their appeal.

I Saw That Years Ago - David McCallum and Joanna Lumley are fighting the elements in... SAPPHIRE AND STEEL

We've gone way back for this one. It's a deeply weird cult TV show from the late 1970s. Of course in this case 'cult' (probably) means that it was never that popular and most people don't remember it.

I think we recorded this in August, which shows how hard it's been getting together to do the shows. Nevertheless we're still recording when we're able, so I hope our absence has made your hearts grow fonder. We're slowly-slowly building up a backlog of episodes to release.

Is anyone else annoyed about Spotify taking over everything? Several of my podcasts are moving to be Spotify exclusive and it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

It's not that I'm morally opposed - yeah, Joe Rogan is a dipsh*t but if I boycotted media companies that associated with dipsh*ts my TV would never turn on.

It's just the idea of having to use an app that I already despise using just to listen to an audio file. I honestly can't be bothered to make the move.

I pay for Spotify and I still refuse to listen to podcasts there. Partly because I don't like new model of exclusive content but mainly because the UI is garbage for managing podcasts.

I wrote to Gimlet to tell them I am not following Heavyweight to Spotify and hope the staff cashed out when they went exclusive. It's been one my fave podcasts but I won't be listening on Spotify.

A bit, yeh. But then again there are too many podcasts. Cutting away the ones that go exclusive opens up the mental bandwidth to try new stuff.

It's a culling. For me it reads like a net positive.

Fans of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia might want to check out The Always Sunny podcast.

It's Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, & Rob McElhenney supposedly doing an episode-by-episode breakdown, but it's actually them spending maybe five minutes talking about an episode and the rest telling behind the scene stories and revealing how the sausage was made. So far the eppies have been a pretty tight 30 min or so with not a lot of faff or fluff.

The MMT Podcast says its first three episodes are a good intro to Modern Monetary Theory. I am only part of the way through the first, but I do like the hosts' style and chemistry so far. Found this through an episode of The Bad Faith podcast.

The popular science writer Mary Roach is the guest on episode 721 of Jordan, Jesse, Go, and she is possibly the funniest and most charming guest ever, and she's not even a professional comedian. Just the best, love her.

Eliza Skinner was also on recently and she is always terrific.

Mary Roach has a very dry sense of humor and it suits her subjects really well. Probably one of my favorite authors. Her curiosity is a fun journey.

Absolutely! I have read 3 of hers so far, and Fuzz has shipped (a gift for the Boss). The podcast is great.

I Saw That Years Ago - Robin Williams joins... THE DEAD POETS SOCIETY

Martyn had covid in January and it knocked him for six. Thankfully he's vaccinated and boosted otherwise I think it would have been far worse.

We did the first half of this before he fell ill and managed to finish it while he was trying to get better. He's still recovering, but we're hoping to try to record more regularly depending on how he's feeling.

Did anyone listen to the Trojan Horse Affair? Episode one didn't grab me. Racist islamaphobes are racist to islamic educators in the UK. How surprising.

They're playing up the whole "who wrote the letter?" as some big mystery a la Serial. Is it worth finishing the series?

I enjoyed it. They answer who wrote the letter by Ep. 2. And then it’s more racism, Islamaphopia, and idiot politicians

The Guardian had a piece that criticised the quality of journalism on the show. I've not listened to the podcast, so I don't know accurate it is. I only know what you two are talking about because it reminded me of the article. Seemed appropriate to share it.

I unironically love this movie. Looking forward to your pod.

I rewatched it a few weeks ago. I think it deserved to get a sequel. But then again the Ron Perlman Hellboy also deserved another sequel.

Talking of Hellboy, I didn't mind the latest Hellboy film. I don't think the lead actor was a better Hellboy than Perlman, but the movie was fun and had its moments.

I saw it for free and felt ripped off.
