Ep 62: Sinister Turtlenecks (S3E15)

| 0 comments

When a butthole in space expels a version of the Enterprise from the past, the crew we've come to know are changed in ways no one can perceive - except for Guinan. In this alternate reality, the Klingons are eating the Federation for breakfast, and Captain Picard has to decide whether or not to send the visiting ship back to its own time. Could Worf be a "secret old"? Shouldn't Yar be due for a promotion by now? Is Ben's dog okay? It's the episode with no logic in it at all!

There was a ton of pro-wrestling that happened this week. It was intense, exciting and exhausting and now the leaders of the Nation of Conversation are ready to talk about all of the things they enjoyed most. From TakeOver to SummerSlam to the Universal Championship, this extended episode is a tribute to the Biggest Party of the Summer.

Hal will explain why Brock Lesnar needs to make major changes if he wants to continue to interest Hal as a regular part of the WWE roster.

Mike will explain how he personally knows the violin player who played Shinsuke Nakamura's music at Brooklyn... and why he has some twitter beef with him.

Danielle will talk about the first thing that the WWE has made that felt like it was made just for her.

All that, and a lot more is coming up on this special episode of Tights and Fights.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford, and Mike Eagle.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximumfun.org

The Three Count

Danielle put over the latest episode of WWE 24, "Women's Evolution"

Ep. 47. The Eleventh Hour - Chapter Seven

| 0 comments

With a fairly rowdy loop behind them, our heroes come face-to-face with divinity, and try their darndest not to make complete asses of themselves. With the Big Clock winding down and their prize in sight, can Tres Horny Boys save the day -- or, at least, one of the days? Merle goes deity shopping. Magnus takes a Chance. Taako lends a hand.

TS249: Dog Attacks, Media Coverage, Sexualizing Athletes, Guest Michelle Collins

Throwing Shade

The dogs have turned on us! This week Erin is nursing a dog bite and all Bryan has is a joke to comfort her...friendship. Also the media coverage of the Rio Olympics has been a colossal disaster for the LGBTQ community and women. They're implying that gay men only watch the Olympics for the hot bods, and relentlessly remind us that women are vaginas first and athletes second. Plus comedian and TSPOD's new BFF Michelle Collins is here to talk about the trials and tribulations of shopping for shoes, Bachelor in Paradise and her favorite restaurant chains.
