E032: Jupiter Napoleon

Don’t forget to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts/iTunes Right over here!

First off we’d like to thank everyone who listened to our Live show on May 19th as part of Livestream for the Cure. We raised over $300 for cancer research and had loads of fun! We’ll be putting out a recording of the show as a future special episode, special thanks to the Epic Film Guys podcast for having us and raising over $5,000!

This week’s tale is from the December, 1950 issue of Out of This World Adventures magazine and, boy howdy, is it pulpy sci-fi fun! Jupiter Napoleon has rayguns (with an even dumber name), a femme fatale, evil alien warlords, just about everything you could ever want (unless you’re looking for story about Victorian-era coal miners, I guess it doesn’t have that). It’s a quick listen and if you like Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, or basically life we think you’ll get a kick out of it. Plus you’ll get a free name for any commenting system for life! Jupiter Napoleon: Human of Action!

So join us in the Great Jovian War for some space opera laughs! Oh, and the cover. Please check out the cover on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, it’s worth following us just for the cover!

E031: High Explosives

Don’t forget to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts/iTunes Right over here!

We start with a quick reminder of our upcoming LIVE episode as part of the Livestream for the Cure online telethon on May 18-20. We will be doing a live interrupted tale reading with all kinds of games and your donations for cancer research during our time will actually dictate how we read our story! So join us at 4:30 EDT on Saturday, May 19th for our LIVE SHOW!

We then read a tale from a 1921 issue of Adventure magazine about two great things that go great together: Prohibiition and nitroglycerin. High Explosives will transport you to Colorado’s oil country and introduce you to the great character find of 1921, the Shooter! A superhero who fends of bootleggers with his- wait, I’m getting an update. Oh, okay: The Shooter is just the nickname for the guy who throws nitro down a rundown oil well in the hopes that a big explosion will result in more big oil. Still, he’s got a Batmobile of sorts (an old, beat-up wagon) and a sidekick (a mangy dog), and a costume (well, a lot of dust). But he does run into some bootleggers and joins up with coppers to fight crime! 

Come join us east bound and down for some old adventure with a car chase, shooting, and explosions! Plus hooch. Sweet, sweet hooch.

E030: The Piper from Bhutan

This week, Alan and Rob take a moment to thank the Brit Pod Scene show for having us guest on the second episode of their podcast. Special shout-out to the Theme Park Film and Rough Giraffe podcasts for making it happen and for both being our favo(u)rite Brits!

We also discuss our upcoming LIVE episode as part of the Livestream for the Cure online telethon on May 18-20. We will be doing a live interrupted tale reading with all kinds of games and your donations for cancer research during our time will actually dictate how we read our story! So join us at 4:30 EDT on Saturday, May 19th for our LIVE SHOW!

Now onto “The Piper from Bhutan”, a tale of murder, mystic pipes (the kind you play, not the fun kind), and really bad science! Straight from Weird Tales magazine, it dares to answer the question “what if you could kind of vaguely, sorta, maybe, barely cause the dead to come to life and how would this affect your university enrollment?” If you’re a fan of crime or supernatural stories this one has you covered and if you’re not you can just sit back and marvel at Alan’s Ghost Whisperer references and uncovering of the deadly secrets of Toastmasters International

E029: The Man Who Could Work Miracles

Welcome to a special Super-Sized Sci-Fi Spectacular episode with a Tale from HG Wells!

Don’t forget to rate and review us on Apple Podcasts/iTunes Right over here.

In this episode, Rob embarrasses himself at the airport (as usual) and we read a tale from a titan of science fiction, the inventor of the idea of time travel as we know it, the man who predicted Martians could be killed by the common cold (it’s actually HPV, but who wants to give them that?), the one and only HG Wells! The Man Who Could Work Miracles one is a story straight from the Twilight Zone, and we can only assume Wells actually invented a time machine, traveled forward 60-odd years, and came back so he could claim it as his own idea. Let’s see Jules Verne do that!

Anyhoo, to honor Mr. Wells, this episode is a bit longer than most, but you’ll not only receive a delightful parable of a man given the powers of a god, you’ll also get to hear us potentially alienate our British listenership (wih love!) and continue our random beef with places in Florida in the hopes of starting something (we’re willing to trade if anyone lives in Tucson, Detroit, or Binghamton, however). Plus the usual nonsense, jokes about walking sticks, and BIBO! Don’t know about Bibo? One doesn’t really know Bibo, one only experiences Bibo. Bring Bibo into your life, today. To gaze at Bibo is to gaze into the infinite.
