This week, Hal, Danielle and Mike are joined by Meghan Sullivan, formerly from IGN! They'll breakdown the news from NXT: TakeOver Brooklyn 4 and SummerSlam.

Ep. 105: The 2018 NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 4 and SummerSlam Special w/ Meghan Sullivan

This week, the team is joined by Meghan Sullivan! She’s a 12-year alumna of IGN, the internet’s biggest video-game website. Most of her coworkers there weren’t big wrestling fans, but she joins Hal, Danielle and Mike to let her mark flag fly.

NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 4

For the third consecutive time, Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano headlined TakeOver. This time it was a last man standing match for the NXT championship. Mike was there live and he can confirm that there was a pocket of the audience chanting “Johnny Loser” in the aftermath of the match. So is it time to give this feud time to breath?

Plus, we’ll highlight the other big matches of the show, including two title changes and why we’re so nervous for some of the brand’s MVP’s to be moved up to the main roster.

SummerSlam

It’s WWE’s second biggest show of the year, and the reviews have actually been great, both from the internet and from the team.

Roman Reigns is now the Universal Champion after beating Brock Lesnar (fifth time’s the charm!). But where does this leave Money in the Bank holder Braun Strowman, especially now that the Shield is back together and ready to run roughshod on WWE once again?

Plus, what other title changes did the group think made a lot of sense? And just what was it about this show that led to so many great matches throughout the card, in spite of some slightly wonky finishes?

All that… and why Meghan and Danielle are ready for Samoa Joe to forever refer to himself as Daddy.

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

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

You can keep up with Meghan on Instagram and on Twitch!

Unbreakable

This week, we could not be more excited to have the director of the new film Like Father, Lauren Miller Rogen! Like Father stars Kristen Bell and Kelsey Grammer as an estranged daughter/father who accidentally end up taking a honeymoon cruise together after Bell's character is left jilted at the altar. The movie that Lauren chose to talk about this week is M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable. Lauren discusses the effect this film had on her when she was in film school and how it recently resurfaced in her life with the release of the trailer for its sequel, Glass. She elaborates on the process of shooting a movie on a cruise ship - from clothing choices to working with the parrot donning captain. Plus she discusses what it was like directing Kelsey Grammer and allowing him the opportunity to play a character that he does not normally get to play.

You can see Like Father on Netflix now.

And if you haven't seen it yet, go watch Unbreakable

One Bad Mother, Episode 268: The Things We’ll Do To Get Them To Do What We Want Them To Do...Wait, What?

One Bad Mother

Biz and Theresa realize maybe we have never left “the forest” and that the forest has been tricking us this whole time into believing it's a nice place! We look at the sometimes insane and always exhausting techniques that we implement in order to get our kids to do things. As we jump though hoops everyday to get our kids to function, we can't help but wonder, "Is this just my life now?" and “Is it ever going to get better?” Well shit, maybe it won’t. Also on this happy show, Biz has a worst first and Theresa doesn’t do mornings.

EP48: Tiffany Gouché on Destiny's Child's "The Writing's On the Wall" (1999)

The Album: Destiny's Child: The Writing's on The Wall (1999)

She sings about love and about longing. Hometown heroine and triple threat (singer/songwriter/producer) Tiffany Gouché (Inglewood, CA) sang her way into our playlists with silky smooth vocals and a production style that reminds us of R&B’s glory days in the 90s, mixed with the eclectic futuristic sound LA music has come to be known for.

She was, therefore, the perfect person to talk Destiny’s child platinum smash heatrock “The Writing’s On The Wall”.

We revisited an album that was full of anthems, an album that Tiffany experienced on cassette tape! Tiffany spoke to us about the layers of inspiration she got from this album as well as what made “Writing’s On The Wall” classic 90s R&B.
