IC 14: A Year in Review

A spoiler-free preview of Star Wars The Last Jedi (AKA Michael and Randolf make a bunch of guesses about the movie), and an episode reviewing the year that was 2017. We look at Reddit novelty accounts gone by, what’s happened in podcasting, and our favorite games of the past year. We also replace Good Internet, Bad Internet with a superlative Best Internet, Worst Internet. We hope you all enjoy and we’ll see you in 2018!

Please note that we do discuss current American politics in this episode starting around 50:10 for about 15 minutes.

IC #10: The Dumbest Story of 2017

This episode features possibly the dumbest story of the year, the McDonald’s Rick and Morty Szechuan sauce debacle. Michael and Randolf also talk about how online communities celebrate Halloween and the games we’re interested in right now. In Good Internet, Bad Internet they discuss a $100 hamburger in the middle of nowhere, some hard truths about cruise ships, and a very, very good dog.
