Gobbledygeek episode 199, “#TurtleGate (feat. Nathan Burdette),” is available for listening or download right here, and on iTunes here.
For the first time in a very long time, Paul and AJ are joined by On the Rocks co-host (and AJ’s cousin) Nathan Burdette. This time, there’s no main topic; the boys have a hodgepodge of recent pop culture developments to discuss, including Paul and AJ’s fundamental disagreement over whether this episode actually has a main topic. Exciting! The gang gets started talking about the new claims that Jack the Ripper has been unmasked, before AJ proffers a public apology to Anna Kendrick. Then they take a gander at trade show art of the Vision as he appears in The Avengers: Age of Ultron. This leads to two larger subjects: the new documentary Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the ill-advised #GamerGate.
Next: here it is, ladies and gentlemen. We’ve hit the magic number 200. That’s right, two hundred episodes of Paul and AJ blathering on about nothing in particular. To celebrate, we’ve invited our good friend Greg Sahadachny of The Debatable Podcast to take the reins, interviewing the boys about life, the universe, and everything.
