Episode 97 - Technology (Just Because We Can, Does It Mean We Should?)

January 26, 2019

The gang is all back, and the only podcast on the Internet returns! On this episode, Bryan Kane PhD brings an interesting inquiry to the table. CES just happened, and he's been diving into all of the new tech coming out of the Las Vegas trade show. On top of that, we've all been watching Westworld. What better time to talk about technology, computers, and robots (both the sex kind and the terminator kind). Bryan asks us how we feel about all of this, and we explore the question of just because we have the ability to create something, does it mean we should? This gets us into a discussion about smart devices, Alexa, and so much more.

Episode 95 - New Year’s Eve Conversation Pt 2: Top Tens, Politics, and a Long Introspective on Religion (w/Jim Pederson)

January 19, 2019

Welcome back fans. Once again, I apologize for the audio and formatting issues in this episode. We did something a little different on New Year's Even this year, and recorded something that was more of a conversation than a podcast episode. That being said, on this episode of the Internet's only podcast, we're discussing more of our top tens, including video games and books. Then we're joined by the Big Jim himself to talk about politics and religion, and where he sees both of these things going in 2019. So buckle up and prepare to be offended. We're also once again joined by Justin Pederson and his wife Chelsea Pederson.

On this episode, we're joined by Justin Pederson and his wife Chelsea Pederson to discuss our highs and lows of 2018. We talk about movies, events, video games, music, and more.

Merry Christmas everybody! We're back with our second annual Christmas episode. We just got back from Las Vegas and we're doing some recap on our trip, as well as talking about Christmas movies. We dive into what makes up a Christmas movie. After all, every year, people argue about whether or not Die Hard is a Christmas move, and other people make fun of them for arguing about it. How edgy and cool. We talk about some of our favorite Christmas movies like National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Elf, Jingle All the Way, A Muppet Christmas Carol, and so many others.

Episode 91 - What Is Art, and Can We Still Experience It?

December 19, 2018

Art is art, so they say. On this episode of the Internet's only podcast, Josh asks the guys two important questions: What is art? And do we still have the ability to experience it? After speaking with somebody about a rap song versus a Thrice song, Josh is convinced that people can no longer experience good art because we no longer have the mental capacity for it. The guys argue this, to everybody art is different. Is this true? We dive into it. Can we be objective about art? Are our minds open to experiencing it? What about vulnerability? We talk about all of this and more on this episode of Topicocalypse.
