Late to the Party? No Worries? There’s plenty of parties! (An Agent Palmer Rant)

Recently I watched The Matrix for the first time. Yes, in 2019 I watched 1999’s The Matrix for the first time. Twenty years is a long time to be late to the party on something but I shouldn’t be vilified for not being a part of it, I should be welcomed to the party.

As I write this, I don’t know what the reaction will be, because I sat down with Bill on The Wicked Theory Podcast to discuss my first reactions to this twenty-year-old film, and that episode has not yet dropped.

The End of an Era: Dark Angels & Pretty Freaks Podcast Takes a Break

Dark Angels and Pretty Freaks Podcast

Every Sunday morning for the past, I can’t remember how long, I have woken up, made some coffee, and listened to my friends Annaleis and Neil for a fresh episode of their couples podcast Dark Angels & Pretty Freaks.

Sometimes, it was more like mid-morning or afternoon, but always on a Sunday. It hasn’t been going on for the entire run of their show, but it has been going on for at least a few years now. Long enough to have become a tradition, a habit, something you can count on. But my Sundays are going to be different.

A Roast and a Toast to Bill Sweeney and 200 Episodes of The Wicked Theory Podcast

This past week The Wicked Theory Podcast celebrated its 200th Episode with the Roast of William Sweeney, Esq. And after a night of laughs and looking back, Bill dropped a bomb about changes coming to the show.

And while I am on the inside, I don’t want to speculate about the future of the show, I want to take this opportunity to say some very nice things about The Wicked Theory Podcast, but more specifically it’s host with the most, Bill Sweeney.

Marc Maron and Brendan McDonald WTF Podcast 1000 Episodes

It took Marc Maron and his producer Brendan McDonald 3,478 days to amass 1,000 episodes of one of the most revered interview podcasts. That’s more than the twice a week release schedule that is now the norm for WTF with Marc Maron. Broken down that’s nine years, six months, and ten days, and more importantly, that’s 1,000 episodes of one of the mediums original pillars.

It’s easy to get caught up in the math.

D&D on TV

D&D on TV, Dragon, human, person and dice by Clint Bustrillos on UnSplash

Is it finally safe to come out of the basement? It seems that way. Let me roll a D20 here… A 14… Yeah, that’s affirmative, thieves, clerics, barbarians and their Masters are out of the dungeons and now they’re on TV. Well, not cable, but streaming services and podcasts, which are still on your TV!

Role-playing games have come a long way from the stereotypical cellars filled with carbonated beverages, salted snacks, and enough candy to give anyone instant diabetes.
