Interview: Derrick K.

Let’s be honest, our podcasts are not competitors, so we love having Derrick on a show other than Challenge Mania. Word of warning, this was quite late in the night and many drinks were had, leading to some distraction and some nonsense. Challenged Superfan Kelly interrupts this episode to give Derrick a foot massage which certainly didn’t help the distraction issues. Derrick was super cool, very outgoing and we’re thrilled to have this fan-favorite on the show.

The Midnight Drive-In: Red & Blue Ruin

We were feeling too good about ourselves so we decided to bring the mood down a bit by watching the 2008 Jack Ketchum adaptation RED and then the 2013 Jeremy Sauliner movie Blue Ruin.  We also discuss the cancellation of Roseanne, pooping in Tim Hortons, and films such as Split Image, Murder Party, Flash Gordon, Dune, The Starman TV show, and a bit of Solo.

Interview: Jordan Wiseley

Thanks to Jordan for taking time out of his evening during the Challenge Throwdown event to talk to us about horror movies, his production company, his motorcycles and more. Unfortunately Tori D. wasn’t able to join him on this trip, or we could’ve helped figure out if that relationship has staying power. During the interview we definitely sort out why he and Laurel didn’t work out. We’re a podcast, but we’re also relationship counselors apparently. Some people insist their partners fold instead of crinkle.

Graveyard Duck Episode 30 – The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

We once again take the show portable and take a look at The Legend of Zelda for Game Boy. For one of us, this is was a first time play through. For the other, this is the first replay since the games release in 1993? How does the game hold up in 2018? Well…we’ll tell you.

On Location: The Challenge Throwdown in Yorkville

We’re taking a short break from interviews for this episode, where we sat down with other fans of The Challenge at the Throwdown for the Cause event in Yorkville. This is Kelly’s first live appearance on the show, so give her a hand! Also joining us is her husband Dan, Zach, and Derrick (but not THAT Derrick) who all tell stories about meeting the cast and try to stay coherent after several drinks. We also take some time to talk to Josh, the man behind the events, and get a little insight into the cast and what it takes to organize these events. Stay tuned, we still have interviews coming up with Melinda, Darrell, Derrick, Jordan and Nicole.

Champs Vs. Stars: Go Deep Or Go Home

We’re back with a look at what happens when people stop being friends and start learning to swim.  This episode we learn about the twist that the Miz left us on at the end of the last episode and we learn who can swim and who can’t.

Interview: Tori Hall and Ashley Kelsey

More interviews from the Challenge Throwdown for the Cause event in Yorkville! This time we sat down with Tori Hall and Ashley Kelsey. Ashley was the captain for Hillary’s volleyball team, so you could say we’re all basically best friends now. We ask a little about the Challenge, but also play a fun game of “would you rather?” and learn more about the Challengers in life after The Challenge.

The Midnight Drive-In: The Last Starfighter & Starman

We take to the stars this week to talk about 2 sci fi movies from 1984 that have STAR in the title.  First up is The Last Starfighter.  How good at you at video games?  It could land you a wicked job Starfighter.  Then after that we watch Jeff Bridges phone home in the John Carpenter alien film Starman.  All this and we find out some interesting facts about dating Noah.

Interview: Laurel Stucky

Thanks to Laurel for sitting down with us in Yorkville Illinois to answer some questions about The Challenge, but more importantly the shows she watches on Netflix. Forensic Files for life. We also touch on her episode of Fear Factor and her one elimination loss against the terrible Camila.

Interview: Cohutta

We were lucky enough to sit down and chat with Cohutta at the Challenge Throwdown for the Cause event in Yorkville, Illinois. We talked about many topics, from toilet paper to cell phones to careers and his cousin Jill. He also shares some of that deep southern wisdom and charm with us.

Graveyard Duck Episode 29 – Arkista’s Ring

We’ve decided to dig into a more obscure title this week with the late NES release, Arkista’s Ring. Is it worthy of being called a hidden gem, or was this one better left forgotten? Listen to find out.

The Midnight Drive-In: Dead Alive & Ed And His Dead Mother

We missed Mother’s Day by a week and then randomly decided to do two movies about dead mothers.  We’re on the ball.  Anyway we talk about the Peter Jackson classic Dead Alive (aka Braindead) and the Steve Buscemi comedy Ed And His Dead Mother.  There is a small discussion about the state of the Star Wars Universe, Deadpool 2, and a non-recommend from Doug.

Champs vs Pros: Fire in the Butt, Ice in the Heart

Yeah, it’s another sausage fest up in here. We have a special guest, Zach, for this bite-sized podcast without notes that we go over out of order. We almost got Tori to watch us live, but I guess we failed. Wes is struggling to maintain his place in the house, the Stars are learning how to play the game a little faster than we expected, and we spend a lot of time talking about our trip to meet some Challengers next month in Yorkville.

The Midnight Drive-In: Demons & Rawhead Rex

This week we’re teaming up two movies that I have once again forgotten why.  But we mention it in the episode.  First up is the Argento/Luci joint Demons.  After that we talk some Rawhead Rex.  During the show we also find out Noah’s hatred for a 90’s horror franchise, talk the upcoming THE PREDATOR, and read a lot of long ass emails.

Champs vs Stars: Face Off Gloves On

No girls allowed! It’s just the men of Challenged tonight, and you know what that means. A short show, no notes, no prep work and lots of distractions. We talk Tori, Ashley, Aneesa and the drama involved with all of them. Wes tries and fails to start an alliance. Tony Time embarasses us all. We end on a bunch of drama that leads nowhere and accomplishes nothing. A typical Challenge episode.

The Midnight Drive-In: Malibu Express & Hard Ticket To Hawaii

In week two of letting Noah pick movies we have Malibu Express and Hard Ticket To Hawaii.  There lots of talk about boobs, rocket launchers, and snakes.  Listen in as Doug’s soul withers and Noah laughs at his misfortune!  Also a few pieces of feedback but we’re pretty light on other movies this week.  It’s a quick one.

Graveyard Duck Episode 28 – Soldier Blade

We’re back for more Shoot-em-ups with one of the best that the TurboGrafx 16 has to offer, Soldier Blade.

Also, be sure to check our EXMosquito and his incredible 1-life Hard mode play through.

Champs vs Stars: Rainbows and Storm Clouds

It’s a very special episode of Challenged with Hill’s first time hosting and a special appearance by a 5-year-old fighting bedtime. We may be distracted, but I think we do a stellar job of covering the Champs and Stars divisions and the game-within-a-game of this season. Who can trust these crazy Champs with all their shenanigans?

The Midnight Drive-In: Dr. Strange & Doctor Mordrid

Since these comic book movies are all the rage we figured we would talk about some comic book related films.  First up is the 1978 TV movie Dr. Strange.  Lots of mustaches in this one.  After that it’s time for Full Moon’s Doctor Mordrid starring Jeffrey Combs.  Let’s face it it’s really just a Doctor Strange rip off.  But it does have a skeleton fight.  After all that we talk about Fargo, Lost In Space, Spider-Man 2, Puppet Master, Sub Species, Black Lightning, Death Race 2050, Ash vs. Evil Dead, Ruby, and the Roger Corman Fantastic Four.

Geek Nerdery Podcast: Avengers Infinity War

I’m joined by my cohosts from The Midnight Drive-In Doug and Noah to break down the culmination of 10 years of work from Marvel Studios Avengers Infinity War!  Did it live up to the hype?  Find out.  Also this review is very spoilery so we advise not listening without seeing the movie first.
