GWC #338: Villains We Love, Part 2: The Monarch

In this episode, we continue our Villains we Love to Love arc with the Venture Brothers‘ outrageously-costumed, insecure, high-voiced swinger and villain extraordinaire: the Monarch. We examine the Monarch’s unusual upbringing, creativity, and desperation to live the 1960s supervillain life, and the startlingly realistic, humble lives of the henchmen. We sneak a glimpse into Chuck’s […]


GWC #335: “B” Movie Arc, Part 2: Total Recall

We continue our “B” movie arc with the epically cheesy 1990 sci-fi flick Total Recall and realize that Arnold’s mechanical acting is ideal for a robot or a comic straight man but less convincing in Recall‘s mind-frak thriller landscape. We discuss the evolution of profanity in movies from the 80s to now, marvel at the fact that Recall‘s […]


Earth’s First Generation Ship?

And we run down the week in geek, including the only food truck to complete the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs and the sad […]


GWC #247: Narnia, Part II

We continue our Narnia exploration with a look at Prince Caspian. We take some awesome listener calls. And we run down the week in geek, including Mars Needs Moms, Stephen King’s take on Let Me In, Christian Bale’s possible last Batman flick, the Buffy re-boot, sweet holiday episodes of Eureka, Warehouse 13, and Dr. Who, […]


Voyages Via VASIMR®

A Conception of a VASIMR® Powered Lunar Tug Spaceship. I’d have to take a poll to be sure, but judging from the reaction to last year’s five week GWC Cosmos podcast arc I’d bet that a good percentage of GWCers are interested in space travel, space colonization, or just simple weekend sightseeing camping trips around […]
