Baconsale Episode 91:Baconsale-Approved Movie Theater Etiquette

It’s time to kick off your shoes and enjoy our latest episode. Well, maybe you’d better keep your shoes on, because we’re talking about movie theater (theatre?) etiquette. We discuss cell phones, we debate about loud talking and we chat about bringing noisy little kids to R-rated horror films. We also argue about your suggestions regarding stinky food, bathroom breaks, candy wrappers, PDAs and more basic guidelines for going to the movies.

So whether you go to the Cinemark, the Megaplex, AMC or Regal Cinemas, press play and let us teach you some lessons on basic human decency at the movie theatre (theater?)!

Baconsale Episode 90: 2017 Prediction Extravaganza

Let’s leave 2016 behind us, shall we? It’s time for Baconsale to look into the future and talk about what we’re excited for (and what we’re dreading) in the year 2017. During this episode, we recap our predictions from last year, and then we discuss which movies we’re excited to see this year. We also predict celebrity deaths, TV shows that will be rebooted and the sexiest man alive. Plus, Jacob and Joel do their best to get Kent to Hulk out and be the villain, and we have a lively debate about the sound Wolverine’s claws.

Press play and see what this new year has to offer you!

Baconsale Episode 89: Best & Worst Movies of 2016-ish

We’ve recovered from the Amish incident in our last show, and we’re ready to begin Baconsale season three! And, once again, we’re starting off the new season with our best and worst movie picks from last year. Kent picks movies that were released in 2016, and Joel picks movies that he watched for the first time during the past year, which may or may not include films actually released in 2016. It’s fun for the whole family (except when Kent is talking about The Neon Demon) on this episode of Baconsale!

Baconsale Episode 88: Season Two Legit to Quit

As the year comes to a close, it’s time to take a quick look back at our second season of Baconsale. We talk about some guests we’d like to have back on, some shows we’d like to redo and some of our favorite moments of this season (like when we met Kate Beckinsale — remember that? We sure do!). Plus, we offer up some behind-the-scenes insights into creating our podcast.

WARNING: It gets a little warm and fuzzy at times. However, after the kind of year 2016 has been, we think we could all use something a little warm and fuzzy, don’t you?

Press play and enjoy our season finale of Baconsale!

BaconBit: Rogue One Review

This is a rebellion isn’t it? We rebel. And we’re also ready to review Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Will this spin-off of the franchise set between the prequels and the sequels win the hearts of Kent, Joel and Jacob? Or will Baconsale want to charge up the Death Star and obliterate the tale of Jyn Erso? There’s only one way to find out (or two, if you count Kent’s review on Radio Ronin) — click play now!

The first 11 minutes are SPOILER-FREE! We even reigned Kent in with his plot descriptions for that part.

Baconsale Episode 87: Christmas Showdown – Die Hard vs. Lethal Weapon

On this week’s episode, Baconsale takes on two of the greatest 80s action flicks of all time: Lethal Weapon and Die Hard. However, we’re not discussing which film is better. Instead, Kent and Joel are debating which movie is more Christmas-y. They’ve each picked a side, they’ve done their research and they’ve taken notes on all of the Christmas music, all of the Christmas decorations, all of the Christmas themes and all of the cocaine the looks like snow. Kent gets a little mainstream, Joel gets a little emotional and now it’s time for you to have yourself a merry little podcast.

Baconsale Episode 86: Toy Stories

We don’t want to grow up, we are Toys R Us kids! And in this episode we’re talking about our favorite toys, trinkets, playthings and, yes, even dolls from our childhood. Kent and Joel have created a list of their top five favorite gifts they received in the 80s and 90s, as well as the presents they wish Santa had given them — while Jacob’s mind is blown that there were things other than sticks and rocks for children to play with back then.

So whether you played with Barbie, G.I. Joe, My Little Pony, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, press play to enjoy this nostalgic episode of Baconsale!

Baconsale Episode 85: Star Wars vs. Lord of the Rings (with Brandon Mull)

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Baconsale decided to take on one of the biggest sci-fi/fantasy debates ever: Star Wars versus Lord of the Rings. However, we knew that we couldn’t bear the burden of this geek culture topic alone, so we formed a fellowship with Brandon Mull, New York Times bestselling author of the Fablehaven, Beyonders, and Five Kingdoms book series. Together, we will host a series of mini-battles, such as box office numbers, critical reception, acting, musical scores and even the attractiveness of the cast for both franchises. We will declare a winner for each round, and then, in the end, we will declare an ultimate winner between the science fiction blockbuster and the ambitious adaptations of J. R. R. Tolkien’s novels.

It’s time to press play, leave the Shire, join the rebellion against the Galactic Empire and listen to this latest episode of Baconsale.

Baconsale Episode 84: We Ate Everything at McDonald’s

Ba-da ba ba *burp*, we’re lovin’ it?

Yes, it’s true — Baconsale has taken on the task of eating every single item on the McDonald’s menu. Our fast-food quest took us a few months, and lightened our wallets while expanding our waistlines, but we’re finally ready to rank and categorize all of the breakfast, lunch and dinner selections from the world’s most popular, most profitable and most controversial restaurant chain. So whether you love McD’s or hate it, you can enjoy our comedic breakdown of such favorites as the famous McDonald’s French fries, the Big Mac, the Egg McMuffin, the Chicken McNuggets and the elusive McRib.

Thank you for being a listener of Baconsale, you can now press play and pick up your supersized episode at the second window!
