Episode 19: Podcastin’ In The Wind

Steve’s Version of Beck’s The Information

Episode 19 is upon us!  And relatively near the actual recording date!  In this episode we watched season three’s episode 13, Bendin’ In The Wind.  This led to natural discussions about Beck, the VW Bus, measuring various scents, and the merits of Bend-Aid.  Hope you enjoy!

The Face of Mars?

After an unplanned 4 month hiatus, Mike & Steve are back with more Futurama commentary!  Once you’ve heard it, you can’t un-hear it!  In episode 18, we take a look at the Episode 10 of Season 3, “Where the Buggalo Roam”.  Topics of discussion include the tallest volcano in the solar system, the Face of Mars, and the Crying Indian.  Confused?  Well listening to the episode might not help in that matter.  But listen anyway!

Episode 17 – Make It So

After a lengthy hiatus, Mike & Steve are back with Futurama Pedia!  Actually, this episode was recorded wayyy back in July, we just have been too busy to get it released until now.  The good news is that Episode 18 is also recorded and around the corner!  In this episode, Mike & Steve discuss 31st Century Fox, and try out Bachelor Chow (Now With Flavour!).  PS – our episode wasn’t really sponsored by Beau’s…but it was influenced by it!

Episode 15: Love & Rocket

Our sincerest of apologies for the length of time in between our last podcast.  We actually recorded this BEFORE Valentine’s Day, and intended to release it ON Valentine’s Day (or shortly thereafter), but we were set upon a rash of technical issues (read: we were busy / lazy / take your pick).  In this episode of Futurama Pedia, Mike & Steve discuss the episode Love and Rocket, conversation hearts, and the deeper meaning of the seminal classic “Daisy Bell (A Bicycle Built for Two)”.

Episode 14: Fun on a Bun

We waited three months before recording (well, it felt like three months) an Oktoberfest episode, and here we are!  Mike and Steve watched “Fun On a Bun” (S7E08) and talked about Oktoberfest (naturally), the Wilhelm Scream, and other random bits of trivia.  Definitely one of our shortest episodes of late – but that just makes it easier for you to listen and move on to the next episode!

Episode 13: Joyeux Noëx

Mike and Steve are finally back together for another podcast – the last one for 2012!  What a fitting time to cover off the Season 2 episode, “Xmas Story”.  Tons of great discussion points including The Gift of the Magi, the origins of Santa Claus, and episode highlights!

Episode 12: Unused Clips from Episode 11

Mike is out of the country (on a secret spy mission, maybe?), but that hasn’t stopped Steve from pulling previously unheard audio from Episode 11 and making a brand new episode!  Sit down, re-watch “War is the H-Word”, and listen to Episode 11 again, and enjoy some of the funnier discussions that had to be cut out of the last episode of Futurama Pedia!

Episode 9: Don’t Lick It

Mike and Steve FINALLY watch a Season 6 episode – chosen by rolling a pair of dice!  The selected episode was the eighth episode of season 6, “Yo Leela Leela”.  Minimal audio clips from the episode in this one, as our viewing copy was on Blu-Ray, and Steve’s computer doesn’t have a Blu-Ray player with which to capture audio.  Nevertheless, it was a good time had by all!
