Good evening. And welcome to another episode of Baconsale Presents. Tonight, we are here to present to you horrific tales of Sabotage, mistaken identity and Murder! from one of the most Notorious filmmakers of our time, Alfred Hitchcock. I Confess that Kent and Joel went a little Psycho and watched all 53 of the iconic director’s films, and they’re now ready to give their recommendations, along with some Suspicious history about the Master of Suspense.
Without a Shadow of a Doubt, you should get over your Stage Fright and press play!

h3ll0, hum4n5. On this episode of Baconsale, we’re talking about our favorite robots, cyborgs, androids and all forms of fictional artificial intelligence from movies & television. This category show came from the CPU of Ryan Ferrin, who is also our guest on this show. Interface with us as we select picks for such categories as best in a fight, most impressive A.I., mech suit we’d like to wear, and most likely to take over the earth.
From the lakes of Minnesota, to the hills of Tennessee, across the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea, there’s a film set in every American state, and it’s time for Baconsale to say which one is the best representation of the land and the people it comes from. And just to make sure we don’t get lost on this road trip, we’re only giving ourselves one minute per debate. After all, we have 50 of these states to get through.

Snap! Crackle! Pop! Baconsale is diving back into the bowl to rank “non-sugary” cereals—the type that you could actually convince your mother to buy when you were a kid. And as we tier each high-fiber, all-natural, whole-grain part of a balanced breakfast, we’ll offer you two scoops full of interesting facts, such as the real reason Corn Flakes were created, what shape Cheerios are, the dark past of Wheat Chex, and who was crazy enough to invent Grape Nuts.

After a mediocre cinematic summer, Baconsale is looking to the movies of this September, October, November and December to save 2018. However, in a bizarre reversal of roles, Kent ends up picking mainstream sequels to reboots of spin-offs while Joel chooses the hipster films. Join us as we go deeper than Aquaman to let you know what’s coming to theaters near you this year.

Hold the pickles, hold the lettuce, menu quests they don’t upset us! Well, maybe they do. Because now that we’ve eaten every single item on the Burger King menu, we’ve got a few things to say about the fast food monarch. We’ll discuss random restaurant franchise facts in this Whopper of an episode, and then we’ll pick winners & losers for such categories as best breakfast, guilty pleasure, biggest surprise and worst value menu item. We don’t always agree, but that just makes things more interesting.
Don’t be a subservient chicken, press play and have it your way!
On this episode, Baconsale takes on one of the most controversial topics it has ever done: parenting. We’ve brought our good friend Abe Yospe back to share his award-winning parental tweets and offer some advice to the new father, Jacob. Along the way we’ll tell funny stories about our kids and talk about what it’s like being a dad. Plus, Joel finally makes good on our promise to our first patrons to immortalize them in song.
Are you interested? Hi, interested. I’m dad! Now press play!
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recently announced the creation of a new category to honor Black Panther—uh, we mean to honor “achievement in popular film.” However, this popularity contest at the Academy Awards is not sitting well with Baconsale, so Kent, Joel and Jacob have decided to rant about it. But it’s not all doom and gloom. We also offer up some potential solutions for the Oscars, as their TV ratings tumble and they flounder around for a fix.

What’s up, guys? Today Baconsale is gonna be talking about YouTube, and how it’s more than just a platform for sharing funny cat videos. In fact, some people watch YouTube channels more than regular TV channels these days, and some YouTubers make a darn good living creating original content for the site. Kent and Joel are each ready to share a list of five channels they subscribe to in order to get you started on the path of ultimate “internetainment.”
To survive a war, you gotta become war, and Baconsale is finishing our battle of action heroes with some of the toughest characters around—some of whom could be registered as lethal weapons. And this bracket features some epic match-ups such as John McClane vs. Luke Hobbs, Paul Kersey vs. Ellen Ripley, and James Bond vs. Ethan Hunt. In the end, we will declare who is the toughest of them all.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to press play.
