Binary System Podcast #107 – Thor: Ragnarok and Stranger Things season 2

This is the second of two episodes we actually recorded last week (because time is weird) just to make sure the holiday travel time didn’t throw off our oh-so-carefully-prepared schedule (and if you believe we’re that organized we’ve got a bridge we can sell ya too. ANYWAY.) This week we’re talking about two things we’ve both finally seen: Thor Ragnarok and Stranger Things Season 2. (Fair warning, we’re gonna spoil all the things.)

And because we never did learn to focus, we also get into Twin Peaks and writing book reviews when the authors are going to actually read them.

Binary System Podcast #106 – WTNV #119 “eGemony Part 3: “A Story of Love and Horror”

Yep, it’s definitely not our imagination: these titles are getting longer.

Balancing out that extra-long title is a short podcast this week as the twins recap an episode of Welcome To Night Vale where…nothing happens. Well okay, things happen, but we get the idea that the things that happen aren’t quite the earth-shattering story-resolving things that Cecil thinks they are.

Binary System Podcast #105 – WTNV #118 “eGemony Part 2: The Cave Lands”

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! To celebrate, here’s a podcast where we don’t mention Thanksgiving EVEN ONE TIME.

Yes, all right, we forgot this episode drops on Thanksgiving. But we are grateful for a lot of things, in addition to family and friends and happiness and health: for a Night Vale episode that did this folding-in-on-itself thing with the plot, for Neil Gaiman and American Gods, for Thor Ragnarok and Tom Hiddleston, for Twin Peaks, Let the Right One In, Stranger Things, and for you because you read this whole description. You rock.

Binary System Podcast #103 – Blair Witch 2016 and WTNV #117 recap

This week we’re throwing the format out the window! That’s right, instead of recapping Welcome to Night Vale and then talking about a movie, we’re talking about a movie first! Then the recap! Madness! Total chaos!

Ahem. Anyway. Listen in as we look at the 2016 Blair Witch sequel (which isn’t nearly as bad as you think) and then recap Welcome To Night Vale #116 “eGemony, Part 1: Canadian Club.” Which absolutely does not star Hugh Jackman.

Binary System Podcast #102 – Wonder Woman and Blade Runner 2049

The Binary Podcast team may not see the latest blockbusters on opening night. Or opening week. Or the week after that…

Okay, so maybe it takes us a while to get around to things. But we make up for it with almost an hour of fangirling.

Listen in as we spoil all the things and talk about Wonder Woman and Blade Runner 2049. Sure we discuss Amazon warriors and angsty replicants, but then we wander down tangents like American Horror Story, San Diego versus Los Angeles when it comes to the “Who’s Going To Turn Into A Garbage Dump First?” question, CGI super jumps, eating bugs voluntarily, and existentialism regarding existence after death and pragmatism versus faith. No, really, we do. But we also talk about pretty superheroes having sex, so there’s a balance.
