New episodes every Wednesday!

Old Kid Brooks

January 29, 2014

It’s my (Stephen’s) Birthday! So, of course, we’re playing trivia. Actually I’m reading the trivia questions while Pat & Rob struggle to happen upon a correct answer. Happy Birthday to me. This is another “special” podcast in that it’s one of those short ones. It’s an artifact of my hosting company, I only have so much space per month so every 4th episode… you get this. You’re welcome.

Sidenote: This Saturday, Feb 1st at 10pm ET on the LIVE section of this website we will be doing a special one-night only LIVE podcast during the Annie Awards ceremony. Anyone who has ever watched them knows what an unpredictable night it can be so you should absolutely join us. We have a chat room where you can interact with us and everything… almost like we planned it! You can RSVP on the Facebook event page too if you like.

Panzerfaust Tank Fist

January 22, 2014

Behold in the intro, the strangest sounding burp in the world… courtesy of Rob (who else?)! This week we talk about John K working for Miley Cyrus, Alan Becker blowing up the internet, and just about everything else under the sun. This episode could easily be called “tangents” because we are ALL over the place. Pat is a bit sick again (rapidly becoming a theme on the podcast) but toughed it out for your benefit. Still, it was a lot of fun to record! Have enjoyment with the words we have uttered.

Good at Fighting Dragon Ballz

January 15, 2014

In this episode we discuss The Simpsons honoring Miyazaki, Michel Gagne’s new movie, a couple new trailers, another “trick” competition to scheme animators to work for free and Meryl Streep’s character attack of someone long since dead at an award show for someone completely different sitting right there in the audience. It’s been a weird week. We also find out that PAT IS A RAPPER. Learn something new every day.

Apple Dave

January 8, 2014

For the first podcast of 2014 we talk “Frozen”s success, Rob’s new animated short, and a lot of death. One passing that hit us was that of “Apple Dave” (mistakenly called “Apple Dan” on ep1). It hit us hard. Hit us right in the podcast. But never fear… we’re still as dumb and likable as ever! Let us lift your spirits and get your year started off with a few laughs and some actual sincerity (for 0.4 seconds). Happy 2014!!

Tahn Tahng

December 21, 2013

Pat is sick. The kind of sick that puts you in the fetal position. So Rob & I take this podcast solo and we do a terrible job. The kind of terrible job that circles back around to awesome “Sharknado” style. In this episode we talk about Netflix and what it means to the industry, Ron & John’s new film, and of course… princesses. Rob & I also try our hand at being radio show DJs. We are bad. The kind of bad that you can only get at a high school radio class. Enjoy! (=

Mint Glue

December 11, 2013

We’re back from Thanksgiving break with a new podcast! In it we announce the winner of the “Find the Zombie in the Podcastimation” game, talk about holiday animation related stuffs and some sad end of the year layoffs. But it’s all ok because we bash “Family Guy” for pretty much every decision they make and talk about porn being spliced into Disney movies, Tyler Durden style. Also, we really have to pee. Hope you like it (the podcast, not the pee)!

Andrew Kaiko Interview

November 24, 2013

This week’s episode is a special 20min interview with animator Andrew Kaiko about his process of creating a short, inspiration, ideas on style, and of course his brand new short “Norm & Cory!” He has a great traditional style and a wonderful sense for color (which we also discuss in the interview) as you can see in his short embedded within this blog post. I encourage all of you to watch it first. Andrew was also kind enough to provide some images to share as reference to the topics we discuss which you can also see inside matched with a time-stamp indicating the relevant moment in the podcast. Thank you for the conversation, Andrew!

Gorilla Boxing

November 20, 2013

This episode we preview the interview I had with Andrew Kaiko about his new animated short “Norm & Cory”, as well as a guessing game, a discussion about about sexy Disney men and a rundown of the major animation stories of the week! Rob & I have been working on our “secret” project (which we announce on the podcast) as well as two separate animated shorts which come out this week… but that also means we’re tired. Very tired. So a fun drinking game to play in this podcast would be whenever someone makes a gigantic, embarrassing mistake while trying to say something relevant… drink!
