Baconsale Episode 156: TV Seasons of Love

In every television series a peak is created: one season in all the show, a chosen one. It alone can wield the strength and skill to fully entertain Kent, Joel and the ever-coughing Jacob. Baconsale is talking TV today, and we’re picking our favorite seasons of 20 popular TV shows, including Friends, Game of Thrones, The Simpsons, Battlestar Galactica, Arrested Development, Breaking Bad, Seinfeld, Saved by the Bell, The Office and The X-Files.

So dig through your couch cushions, find the remote control, and press play!

Baconsale Episode 154: Baconsale-Approved Office Etiquette

Uh-oh! Looks like somebody’s got a case of the Mondays! Don’t worry, Baconsale is here to get you through the workday with our office etiquette show! Jacob, Joel and Sprinkles are ready to give the final ruling on things like cooking fish in the break room microwave, sitting on people’s desks and “private” cubicle conversations. We’ll also tackle broader topics like dating in the workplace and how work acquaintances can become real friends. In fact, the greatest weakness of this episode is that we work too hard, we care too much, and we’re too invested in this podcast.

Now put in your headphones so you don’t disturb your coworkers and press play!

Baconsale Episode 153: PS1 I Love You

Listen in your world as we podcast in ours, because today we’re talking about the original PlayStation console. Kent and Joel have created a list of their favorite PS1 games and are going to do their best not to geek out too much—although there are times when things get emotional. Join us as we explore with Lara Croft, fly high with Spyro the Dragon and try to not get frustrated with Crash Bandicoot.

What are you waiting for? Press play…station.

Baconsale Episode 146: Lord of the Fries

Would you like fries with that? We don’t. At least, not for a while, because for this episode we have eaten crinkle-cut, curly, shoestring and waffle fries from 22 different fast food restaurants, including McDonald’s, In-N-Out Burger, Arby’s and Chick-fil-A. Then we created a French fry matrix to scientifically compare each deep-fried & salted potato side, and are now ready to present to you our official Baconsale rankings.

Press play to hear how Jacob tried to sabotage our scoring, what kind of gross comparisons Kent can come up with for the fries he doesn’t like, and Joel’s history lesson on who invented fry sauce.

Baconsale Episode 141: Guilty Films Have Got No Rhythm

When it comes to others’ taste in film, Baconsale has no problem criticizing the choices some people make. But now it’s time to open up, make ourselves vulnerable and divulge our favorite guilty pleasure movies. Kent, Joel and Jacob each present five flicks they’re ashamed to love. . .and then proceed to mock each other relentlessly.

Press play and listen as we discuss box office bombs we adore, critical failures we find fascinating and cinematic duds we dutifully defend.

Baconsale Episode 138: Best & Worst Movies of 2017-ish

Kent, Jacob and the real Joel are back to kick off season four of Baconsale! And, as per tradition, we’re starting this year by discussing our favorite and least favorite films that were released (or that we watched) in 2017. Kent displays his seething hatred of Marvel movies, whereas Joel actually has some current picks this time. Oh, and Jacob may have picked up on some Oscar buzz in the process.

Baconsale Episode 136: The 12 Days of Geekmas

Great lords a-leaping! Baconsale is making their Christmas wish list and it’s full of some pretty geeky stuff. We’ve selected 12 of our favorite gadgets & gifts from famous movies or television shows, from Star Trek (Yes! Joel knows Star Trek things!) to Harry Potter. Hopefully we made the nice list and Santa will make our holiday dreams comes true—even though Jacob just wants to shoot things with a ray gun.
