Baconsale Episode 164: Taking Time to Talk Trilogies

Today on Baconsale we’re talking film trilogies, and we’ll be breaking the episode into three distinct sections:

Part 1 – Movies that didn’t really need a sequel, but somehow became a trilogy.
Part 2 – Sequels that were better than the original film.
Part 3 – Third movies in a trilogy that killed the franchise—at least for a while.

Kent and Joel have agreed on a trio of choices for each section and are ready to debate, discuss and share random facts about their picks in triplicate.

Count to three and press play. It’s time for Baconsale!

Baconsale Episode 163: Man Crush Monday

Hey girl, we know you like it when Kent, Joel and Jacob are a little uncomfortable, which is why Baconsale is dedicating an entire episode to man crushes. Why? We’re not sure. It was Kent’s idea. But it was also Kent’s idea to invite Lindsay, our special guest, onto the show. She’s here to add some female perspective and to pick winners for categories such as Classically Handsome, Best Chris, Hottest Athlete, Silver Fox, Best Smile, Guy Next Door and Sexiest “Sexiest Man Alive.”

So grab some cocoa butter, oil up those abs and press play to hear us discuss dapper dudes.

BaconBit: Ant-Man and the Wasp Review

Now that the dust has settled from Avengers: Infinity War, it’s time for Baconsale to talk about Marvel’s next installment: Ant-Man and the Wasp. Last time Ant-Man was on the big screen, it wasn’t exactly beloved by Kent, Joel and Jacob, but will this sequel (and Paul Rudd’s charm) win them over? Even if you haven’t seen the movie yet, you can still listen to the first eight minutes—they’re spoiler free.

Grow up (or shrink down) and press play! It’s time to enter the quantum realm of movie reviews!

Baconsale Episode 162: Ask Baconsale

Ever heard the phrase “the inmates are running the asylum”? Well, that’s what we’re doing on this episode of Baconsale. We’ve handed over the reins to you, the listener, and we’re answering questions that you submitted. This means we’ll be talking about conspiracy theories, our favorite books, which Muppet we’d be, switching bodies with each other, memes, a potential mascot for the podcast, Godzilla vs. King Kong, our most embarrassing moments on the show and so much more.

Baconsale Episode 161: The Mount Rushmores of Summer Blockbusters

Imagine that they’re going to build a national monument to the biggest summer blockbusters of all time—which four films do you think should be represented? Baconsale is ready to debate this issue and come to a consensus on which fictional characters should literally (and yet figuratively) be set in stone. And, as an added bonus, Kent, Joel and Jacob are each going to sculpt personal monuments in the mountains behind their homes of four other summer movies that mean something special to them.

Grab your chisels & hammers and press play, because it’s time to chip away at another outlandish topic on Baconsale!

Baconsale Episode 160: The Boys of Summer Songs

You know what the cure for the summertime blues is? Baconsale! Today we’re discussing (and sometimes singing) the biggest summer tunes from 1960 to 2017. Kent and Joel have each picked their favorite & least favorite hits from each decade, along with an alternate #1 song of their choice—based on Billboard data, personal preference and imaginary Jeep rides with the boys.

Press play to enjoy the sounds of summer and to hear how many times Joel references “Weird Al” Yankovic.

Grab some gillyweed, because Baconsale is doing a deep dive into the Harry Potter film franchise! Jacob has come up with more than 100 ridiculously specific questions about The Prisoner of Azkaban (we’re talking “How many crows are there in Hagrid’s pumpkin patch?” kind of stuff) and Kent & Joel are going head-to-head to see who can remember more from their multiple viewings. And with two chile verde burritos on the line, the stakes have never been higher!

But before you start to Scream, [Your Name], you should know that this isn’t a Freaky (Friday) Halloween episode. We’ve also included beloved classics like Harry Potter, Back to the Future and Encino Man, as well as box office phenomenons like the Twilight Saga and I Am Number Four.
