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.

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.

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.

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.
