Indy Car and NASCAR are back on the track (not without some controversy), NFL, MLB, and NHL are talking about how their return is going to look. Nobody is sure what's happening with the NBA, but things are happening. Also . . . football is back . . . and not the American kind. We're talking about all of this and more on this action-packed episode of Topicocalypse.

Episode 129 - Yawehism vs Universal God

June 22, 2020

On this episode of the Internet's only podcast, I'm sitting down with my brother to talk about some religious things that I did not know about. Justin schools me on the ida of Yawehism vs a Universal God. How do our learned and inherited perceptions of God change the way we look at spirituality? What does all of this mean? Find out on this episode of Topicocalypse.

Topicocalypse One Shot - The Big O Episode 1 (Review): Roger the Negotiator

June 18, 2020

The one shot episodes are back! Or perhaps it'll be more than one if I end up reviewing the entire series, but on this episode of Topicocalypse, we're doing things a little different. Instead of four (sometimes five) idiots sitting around a table talking about things they may or may not know anything about, I will be reviewing an episode of an anime series that is very near and dear to my heart . . . The Big O.

I’ve been taking some time lately, to go back and watch the anime series I grew up with. As a novel writer, going back to my inspirations has been the key to “reawakening” my creativity, especially in these hectic times, where just stepping out your front door is like going on a walk with sorrow and depression. That being said, the noir-like world of The Big O has been a welcome distraction from the strange and terrible things going on in our society. Turning on the box-set blu ray instead of the news has proven to be the best thing I’ve done in the past few weeks.

I hope you enjoy!

What's up fans? Welcome back to another episode of Topicocalypse, the only podcast on the internet. There's a lot of strange things going on in the world today, and we want you to know that we are here for your listening pleasure. 

On this episode, we are diving into the concept of individualism vs collectivism in the era of COVID-19. Has the concept of the individual really been set aside for this virus?

All of this and more on this episode of Topicocalypse.

Topicocalypse Presents: What About This (Episode 1): Objective Beauty

May 20, 2020

What's up podcast lovers. We're back, and we're doing things a little different today. Instead of listening to four idiots talk about things they may or may not know anything about, we're going to play a podcast belonging to some friends of ours.

Welcome to the What About This Podcast! On the first episode ever, Travis, Ryan, Keith and Kyle consider whether there is such thing as objective beauty. Together, we discuss how we judge beauty, where our ideas of beauty might come from, if taste is the same thing as beauty, and the differences between subjectivity, objectivity, and relativity.

We hope you enjoy!

What's up everybody? Welcome back to Topicocalypse . . . the only podcast on the internet, especially during quarantine. Nobody else is making podcasts. Weird right? If you're feeling like you're drowning in coronavirus news, we have a nice distraction for you. Brett has put together a list of the best films (in his opinion) to come out of the '90s, and we certainly do love movies here on Topicocalypse. We're talking about everything from Arnold's run in the Terminator to Sylvester's Demolition Man, The Matrix, Bad Boys, Rush Hour, and so many more great films. The '90s was an amazing time to be alive!
