Baconsale Episode 120: Millennial-Approved Dating Etiquette

After Baconsale’s last dating etiquette show, our friend Paige asked to come on the show in order to give a fresh, female, millennial perspective on courtship in the modern world. So here she is! And she brought along her friend Jordyn (and Courtney and Amelia) to discuss how dates have changed since Joel and Jacob were last in the game, as well as some tips for Kent to help him improve his game and not get murder-kidnapped.

So, whether you’re a man, a woman or “Bent Bunn” himself, press play and enjoy our latest episode!

Baconsale Episode 116: Best Westerns

Well, howdy there, pardner! Baconsale is ready to rustle up a discussion about some of our favorite Western movies. However, Kent and Joel aren’t as well-versed in the world of cowboys, Indians, sheriffs, settlers, gamblers, bandits and bandanas (much to Jacob’s delight), so they’re also going to discuss the gaps in their knowledge and talk about the iconic Westerns they haven’t seen.

So get your John Wayne impersonation ready and saddle up your horses. It’s time to listen to the latest episode of Baconsale!

Baconsale Episode 105: Baconsale-Approved Dating Etiquette

Hey, are you busy right now? Because…we were wondering…if…uh…you wanted to listen to our podcast sometime?

Now that Kent is single and entering the dating world once again, it’s time for Baconsale to talk about proper date etiquette. We’ve gathered courting do’s and don’ts from both guys and girls as well as horror stories from you, the listener. Along the way, we discuss topics such as the Joel’s theme dates, Kent’s creeping pinky and Jacob’s mom.

We’ll see you on the doorstep at the end!

Baconsale Episode 104: 2017 Summer Movie Preview

In a world where every movie seems to be a remake, a reboot or a sequel, three men will do their best to guide you through the cinematic minefield. Baconsale has created their lists of which films they’re most excited for during the summer of 2017, as well as the movies they want to bomb. Joel admits some mistakes he’s made in the past, Jacob references “growly pants,” and Kent banishes both of them from movie screenings.

Hurry and press play! The summer movie season is almost upon us!

Baconsale Episode 101: Documentary Starter Kit

And here we have Baconsale in its natural habitat: talking about movies. Not just any movies, though. They seem to be discussing documentaries. Kent, the critic of this species, has joined with Joel, the dominant comedian, to create a list of 10 non-fiction films that will help people understand that the word “documentary” does not necessarily mean that the movie will be boring or dry. In fact, they seem to have piqued the interest of a nearby creature named Jacob – a reluctant observer.

Let’s listen and see what happens.

Baconsale Episode 96: Hipster Flick Picks

Have you heard of this podcast called Baconsale? It’s this cool, out-of-the-way podcast not many people know about. Anyway, Kent, Joel and Jacob — totally obscure guys — are the hosts and, in this episode, they’re discussing films you’ve probably never heard of. Well, they’re hoping you’ve never heard of them, because they’re each recommending four films to you. Why four? Because three and five are so mainstream.

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 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 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 82: Fictional Political Discourse

The time has come for us to discuss politics…in our own Baconsale way, that is. And since we don’t know that much about actual politicians, Kent and Joel are each campaigning for fictional characters they picked from film and television. They’ve grouped these candidates into two groups: best president, best vice president and best first lady as well as the worst president, worst vice president and worst first lady. Not gonna lie, it gets pretty geeky at times.

Also, you can rest assured that during this episode we will not even mention the names of certain real-life presidential candidates that we’re all tired of hearing about lately. We swore an oath.

Get your ballot ready, step into the listening booth and get ready to vote for your favorites!
