Hello Buddies! Welcome to the Bunker! Enjoy the first from our MARATHON 5 EPISODE RECORDING DAY! This was a good one to start with folks, you're gonna love it! In Would You Rather, human but stupid mutants or animalistic mutants with a pack mentality? We try out a kid's 5-in-1 survival tool in the newly named Unboxalypse segment! You sent in your Q's and we give you some A's in this week's Audience Q&A! Also, you could attend this year's "Walker Stalker" cruise! We are joined this week by the amazing Lucky Yates (Archer, Good Eats) and it's amazingly fun! Enjoy and don't forget to share!

Ep 61: I Hate Manure (S3E14)

| 0 comments

When Riker gets accused of murder, Picard fights his first officer’s extradition the only way he knows how: by putting together a few days of holodeck Rashomon. The situation gets dire when radiation starts turning the ship into Swiss cheese. Why doesn’t Data compare Picard’s art style to potato Jesus? Is there any explosion Chief O’Brien can’t pull an away team out of? Is Riker secretly a total madman? It’s an episode in which our grievances with certain other Star Trek podcasts are laid to bed, and then inflamed anew.

Wil Wheaton

Among the 250+ topics we've received over the last one and a half years, there are always some that don't warrant a full episode. When that happens, Mark and Hal clean the slate with a multi-topic extravaganza. Helping them out this time is actor/nerd icon Wil Wheaton, who waxes poetic on everything from theme park ruffians to the popcorn eating style he shares with Hal.

Going to Dragon Con? So is Hal! Here's where you can find him.

Sarah Paulson on playing Marcia Clark, being a working actor, and kissing Josh Hartnett

Actress Sarah Paulson is best known for playing numerous characters on American Horror Story and Marcia Clark on The People v. O.J., but her acting career started long before either of those roles. She began working as an actor right out of high school and eventually landed roles in movies and TV shows like Law and Order, Serenity, and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

Sarah sits down with Jesse to talk about working on The People v. O.J., her first big acting job, and dealing with the ups and downs that come with being a working actor.
