The "Rundown Til Sundown" is a prestiege movie podcast where hosts Jim and Sammy Hanson talk about new movies.

Now, if you're thinking to yourself, "wait a minute, self, Gumbiecat already has a pretty good movie review podcast", you're right... but this isn't about reviews, it's about PREviews.  

As in, movies we're ABOUT to see.

Literally, about to see.  Like, we're at the drive in, waiting for the movies to start, killing time. 

It's a special birthday surprise for Sammy, as she and Jim are joined this episode by their cohost from Raising The Next Generation, Jacque (Jim's wife, Sammy's mom) on their way to see The Nut Job 2 and The Emoji Movie.  

Talking points this episode:

  • Why has Jacque seen The Nut Job when neither of the others have
  • Teaching your child about racism via squirrels
  • How much money it takes to sneak into Sir Ian McKellan's bedroom and secretly move everything into the middle of a field without waking him.

Back by popular demand, we resume Raising the Next Generation with where Star Trek TNG began... Encounter at Farpoint.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right?  If so, we flatter the holy crap out of the McElroy Brothers and their hit podcast My Brother, My Brother, and Me in this week's episode.

Recorded last year after the announcement of the incoming McElroy babies (who were born in the fall of 2016), several teams of podcasters and fans combined to create podcast... fanart... filler... something, in the hopes of giving something back to the McElroys for all the years of good good goofs.

Most of these projects didn't get very far... but ours did.  So join us, now, as we travel back in time to that one time when Jim Hanson, Jon Baley, and Tristan Morris all took their turn pretending to be the hosts of My Brother, My Brother, and Me.

Episode 005: Armored Sentai Viewranger - Let's Tenshin!!!

Viewranger Logo.png

Armored Sentai Viewranger aims to tell the brave men and women of the Power Rangers fandom who have taken it upon themselves to explore a lost and forgotten corner of Power Rangers/Sentai mythos and raise the profile of shows previously unavailable in the US to that of their more more famous brothers and sisters.

Join Viewranger Green (Jim) and Yellow (Kat) as we explore the very first episode of Dairanger - here - and marvel at how... good and bad it looks, all at the same time.

Backstory:
In the 1990s, Saban found huge success in bringing a Japanese action series, Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger, to the US as Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.  

Zyuranger, like all Sentai shows in Japan, only lasted for a single year before being replaced by a new series... Gosei Sentai Dairanger.  However, in the US, after the year's worth of footage was used up, Saban opted to make all-new Zyuranger footage rather than adapt most of the Dairanger footage, leaving this footage unseen in the United States.

In 2015, Shout Factory negotiated a deal with Toei to bring Dairanger to the US legally for the first time ever.  The episodes are now available for free on their website and various streaming platforms.

Do you have what it takes to pick up the mantle and also become... a Viewranger?  Only one way to find out.  Join us and see!

 

 

Episode 004: Rundown Til Sundown

Episode 004: Rundown Til Sundown

The "Rundown Til Sundown" is a movie podcast where hosts Jim and Sammy Hanson talk about new movies.

Now, if you're thinking to yourself, "wait a minute, self, Gumbiecat already has a pretty good movie review podcast", you're right... but this isn't about reviews, it's about PREviews.  

As in, movies we're ABOUT to see.

Literally, about to see.  Like, we're at the drive in, waiting for the movies to start, killing time. 

Since both hosts bring their own expertise into this week's movies - Transformers: The Last Night for Jim and Captain Underpants for Sammy - they try to explain (and justify) their respective movie franchises to one another.  And since both of these are adaptations of different source material, talking points include the difference between Adaptation Decay and Adaptation Distillation, and how to get around hypnosis superhero curses.

Episode 003: Tragic Missile (pilot)

Episode 003: Tragic Missile (pilot)

In a time of ancient gods, warlords and kings, a land in turmoil cried out for a hero.

Instead, it got these assholes.

This week, RPG is joined by an actual RPG in the form of the cast of Tragic Missile, the live-play D&D podcast that Jon Baley (also of Gumbiecat Network fame) is putting together and that Jim is a part of.  

After a bit of info about who our players are (because we don't normally get to cover that too much in-podcast), we dive head-long into the pilot episode of Tragic Missile, as our "heroes" try to navigate a simple, basic quest without killing themselves - or each other - in the process.

If you enjoy today's episode, revel in the fact that Tragic Missile is a real actual podcast (and not one of Jim's ephemeral phantom podcast ghosts) and will be premiering in it's own slot on the GumbieCat Network shortly.  Once it goes officially live, we'll be sure to tell you about it.

Episode 001: Answer or Else

Episode 001: Answer or Else

RPG 001 Logo.png

For the inaugural episode of Random Podcast Generator, join Jim as he offers up one of his own probably-abandoned projects - the pilot episode of a high-concept combination of podcast and gameshow called Answer or Else.  

The players - friends of the show and regular victims of Jim's whims MIke Dellheim and Russ Hannula - must navigate their way through a maze of questions from Jim's own brain.  Questions that are too hard, too easy, or too stupid to answer without seriously doubting yourself.  But you have to answer... it's in the title.  You have to... well, you know.

If you have an idea for a one-shot podcast, or have recorded such a beast yourself, and would like to sacrifice it to the podcast gods, you can contact us on twitter or drop us an email podcastbad@gmail.com and one of our dedicated curators will see if you've got what it takes.
