Hello, Birmingham! Live from the Alabama Phoenix Festival, it’s Gobbledygeek! Paul and AJ returned to APF 2014 to host a series of panels about everything from summer movies to Orphan Black, and while they were there, they thought it’d be neat to record a live podcast. Joining them in the hot seat is Gobbledy-stalwart Kenn Edwards; in the audience, frequent guests/loved ones/freaks of nature Eric Sipple, Joseph Lewis, and Pam Smith. The gang talks to the crowd–including a man dressed as Casey Jones and two teenaged Bronies–about how the con’s going, why they enjoy the sense of community it provides, and that awful-looking Ninja Turtles movie.

Next: Paul and AJ return to their boring, excitement-free home lives to discuss the original Japanese Godzilla. And I guess they’ll mention the new one too.

The long and winding road of the Gobbledy-Book Club has led us here, through factories and caves and cellars, to the final two chapters of J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst’s S. Paul and AJ host an all-star jam band reunion of their co-readers: Paul’s better half Pam Smith, whom we have to thank for just about everything; The Debatable Podcast host and Ukrainian royal Greg Sahadachny; and Kenn Edwards of So Let’s Get to the Point and Project Batman, who might just be recording your entire existence as a podcast. Believe it or not, the show is (mostly) able to contain all five of them as they get to the important business of discussing the conclusions of both Ship of Theseus and the Jen/Eric marginalia, the importance of endings, and the open-ended nature of many of the tale’s mysteries (sound familiar, Lost fans?). Plus, the gang says goodbye to the late, great Harold Ramis.

Next: the boys are on their own again to pay tribute to the work of Harold Ramis. They’ll be watching MeatballsStripesGhostbusters, and Groundhog Day.
