Ep. #85: “Too many Samurai swords for one show!”

Ep. #85: "Too many Samurai swords for one show!"

Finally, the moment came that we all had been waiting for! On our show this time we had the Aussie steward of Japan's mightiest munchies: Kyle "The Confectionery Vampire" of Tokyo Munchies! It was a blast talking with Aussie Kyle about his life in Tokyo. And this time we were in full force! The whole Critical Crew was here and it got CRAZY. So settle in for some funny crap with this one! And go check out Tokyo Munchies!!! Proudly a sponsor and friend of the Critical Five.

Special shout out to our friend on Instagram, the talented artist @the.one.n.only.hector who sent us an awesome package with 2 prints of his original works of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and a Mexican Day of the Dead Pikachu! Thanks for the awesome stuff bro! You can also find him on Facebook and YouTube. Let him know that we sent you his way, then maybe he'll do something special for ya if you buy something *wink*

Ep. #83: “The Critical Legend of Mikalyn: Our Epic Conclusion”

Finishing up our awesome interview with Mikalyn Hay, we talked a little about comic cons, superheroes, and where Mikalyn fits into the nerdiverse personally. And we got to hear an embarrasing tidbit about a recent performance! We also learned more about her school, and learned what her favorite animal is (AND a related career aspiration that she had shattered as a child)!

We hope everyone has enjoyed getting to know Mikalyn as much we have. This was a super fun show to record and produce. We are very grateful to Mikalyn for being willing to enter the madness that is Critical Thinking Podcast. Also a big thanks to her parents, Mike and Maureen for being awesome! And a special thank you to Jim Catalano for introducing us!

Ep. #82: “Mikalyn Hay is HAYting on us! (but not really!)”

We have a huge treat for everybody this time: Canadian keyboardist and singing sensation, Mikalyn Hay, joined us for a ridiculously fun interview! We were all extremely impressed with this wunderkind of a Canuck. At only 15 years old (going on 16 next month), she has the maturity and wisdom of someone many times her age. But she is also a ton of fun to talk to and was well able to keep up with us! Time flew by and we ended up having so much fun that we decided to split this episode up into a part 1 and 2.
Throughout this installment you will hear a few of her songs and some sound samples as well. She also sang something live for us over the Skype which is an original song of hers not currently out there on the interwebs!
Yes, we did also talk about the geeky stuff we all know and love. We got to find out that she's a nerd just like us! And particularly, a really big fan of a certain, popular book series... Listen in to find out more!

Ep. #81: “The Men in the Well; Or, There’s some Hell on dem Wheels”

Oops! We had some technical difficulties with the Podbean where the audio didn't upload right. Sorry about that folks... But it's up now!

This episode we had the amazing Anson Mount and Branan Edgens, the dynamic duo of The Well Podast on as guests! Both of these guys have awesome careers in TV and movies (just look them up in in IMDB) but the thing they're really excited about is the podcast they've been doing together! It's a really awesome thing that you should definitely check out. We had a great time with these two very intelligent and talented guys who also turned out to be really humble and fun to hang out with. Check out their podcast and you will definitely catch the same vibe you got from them during our interview!

Because we had such a good interview, we didn't want to cut anything short. So there will be a part 2 coming out with what we covered for our regular show before the interview, so stay tuned for that!

Ep. #80: “My Little Critical Thinking Podcast”

So we pulled another Rick, Shawn, and Josh episode... Which of course means that we made sure to throw in some friendly jabs at Kyle and Miguel for not making it! We had our fellow podcasters - The Cinema Psychos Show - on with us to talk shop about movies and all kinds of random stuff. We really had a blast with Brian, John, and Laine! They're all involved in indie film making, and so they bring a really fresh take on movies. Really smart and witty people with a smooth balance between crude and sophisticated. They were wonderful guests and this interview made for a very entertaining show!

You can check them out at their website CinemaPsychosShow.com And of course you can get to them on iTunes and just about everywhere else you find podcasts.

Ep. #79: “Self-help v. Professional Stupid”

Once again, we got the Kyle back in the Houuuuuuse! And in an unlikely mashup, we had Maxwell Ivey (Aka. The Blind Blogger) on our podcast to talk box office numbers, movie news, and share a little with us about himself. As an entrepreneur, author, life coach, and online business teacher, and personal development podcaster, one might've thought an interview on our podcast would be out of place for Max. But he swung with the best of 'em and kept up with all our wacky hijinks! He's a great, inspirational guy in the self-help and personal development space, and you can check him out at the TheBlindBlogger.net or on YouTube on his channel Maxwell Ivey.

By the way, if you direct message me (Shawn, the editor) on instagram with the name of one of the faces of personal development gurus I stole for the cover picture on this episode, I'll give you kudos on the next show!

Hope y'all enjoy!

2. Marrowbone
3. Bent

Ep. #77: “Throwback to the Three”

This time we did things reminscent of the beginning of the podcast. Because Miguel was unable to make it (and neither could Josh) Rick and I were going to have to go it alone for an interview... But the internet died!!! So Kyle jumped in with us and we did a spontaneous episode getting reaquainted together. We also reviewed Assassin's Creed: Origins and Bloodborne. And in the midst of all the rest of our BSing we also got onto the subject of our childhood crushes. We each gave our "90s MILF of the Week". No trailers this time- but tune in for some great fun! We know that you will have a blast with the return of the All-Original Kyleness!

Ep. #76: “Bingo-Bongo! Canadians Have Landed!”

This was an absolute treat! We had the hillarious duo from Canada, the Podcouple - Shawn's good instagram buddies - join us for a rip-roaring time of hillarity! You'll be able to tell from the very beginning that these two are awesome and whole bunch of fun! We wen't over a lot of trailers together and then picked their brains a bit about their life and podcasting. So get ready for these crazy Canuchs! They're quick on the draw and always ready to blast away with wit and hysterical commentary!
