Ep. #108: “Rock ain’t dead and the Irises are Red”

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving this week! We definitely did! Kicking back out there into the world just before Monday and work begins, we've got a fresh episode we recorded just before we got overrun by turkeys. This time we got an interview for y'all with an extremely talented local H-Town band, Red Iris! We had a blast with Zeek, Oscar and Emily talking about old school rock n' roll, what has inspired their music careers, origins of the band, and their personal interests in the Nerdiverse. Check out this episode to get to hear some awesome tunes and find out about this great local band!

Credit to Red Iris for our interview intro song sampled from their song "Under Cover of Night" (℗ 2017 Red Iris Records), the outro song taken from their song "Drowning" (℗ 2018 Red Iris Records), and the interim songs "Emma's Song" and "Moon Light" (℗ 2017 Red Iris Records) all of which can be found on iTunes and at RedIrisMusic.com

Ep. #107: “We Are The Champions with Manilyn”

We have another great interview for you guys with our very sweet and talented guest from the Philippines, Manilyn! We had the pleasure of being her first interviewers in her career as a recording artist. She held up well under the pressure of our "highly intellectual" battery of questions... Or rather, she managed to survive the insanity of our antics and buffoonery! Manilyn had no problem keeping up with us and we're sure you'll find her as charming and pleasant to the ears as we did. She has a great talent as a singer-songwriter and we are definitely excited for the big things that will coming from her in the near future!

Credit to Manilyn for our interview intro song taken from her song "Braingasmic" (℗ 2018 Maniana Records), the outro song taken from her song "Familiar Stranger" (℗ 2018 Exia Recordings), and the interim song samples "Familiar Stranger" and "Save You One More Time" (℗ 2018 Daz B Productions) all of which can be found on iTunes

Ep. #106: “The Lost Episode”

Bringing you a special recording from 3 weeks ago. This is a short one but a good one. It was an experimental attempt at censoring. And it consequently came out pretty hilarious! We give you some round table stories from that weekend and box office numbers for the first week of October with all of our salty commentary. Try this for a drinking game: take a drink every time you hear a censored word. Or maybe don't...you'll probably pass out before you finish the episode depending on what you're swigging! We hope you enjoy it!

Ep. #102: “The boys are back in town”

The three most wicked desperadoes of the Critical Five rode into town... Bringing you another full CTP show featuring tails from the road, box office numbers, trailers, and movie news. That's right: the Good (Rick), the Bad (Shawn), and the Ugly (Miguel) were all present in the studio and got wackier by the minute. Though we were still absent our beloved mechanic-in-chief, the Pretty (Kyle), and our tech-lord, the Mad (Josh), we still had a blast together and made y'all a show full of sarcasm, banter, and hilarious stories reminiscent of our classic shows. There's no Clint Eastwood in this story... And Lizzy might actually be a bit more on the chubby side now after all of those commercial-break Ding-Dongs... But nevertheless, the boys are back in town!
