Kang-Celled

Kang-Celled

It is factual that mobile gaming is still gaming, and this week we’re playing with words in a whole new light as Rich and I trade mobile word games live! Marvel fatigue also continues to be real, and a not-so-gentle reminder that iMessage is just better, and your faith is just not strong enough.

The Wonder of Mankind's Discovery

The Wonder of Mankind's Discovery

Is Star Trek too silly? Does watching old people on TV suck? Are drugs bad for you? And how many emails are too many? Rich and I attempt to answer these questions, but mostly have discovered that coffee is probably the answer to all questions, and if it isn’t, keep drinking boys and girls!

Covering Star Trek Discovery, For All Mankind, Super Mario Wonder and More!

What Lucky Men

What Lucky Men

After I traversed a nearly unhealthy amount of the Northeast this week, it’s time to settle down in front of a microphone and talk about portable gaming. Rich regales us with a Legion of where handheld gaming can Go given enough sweat equity and kitchen sink. And rich people towns have been measured and found wanting! (Lenovo Legion Go Review)

One Funky Awakening in Philly (The Continental, The Changeling, Alan Wake 2)

One Funky Awakening in Philly (The Continental, The Changeling, Alan Wake 2)

In the spirit of Halloween (the original one, not the retail store), we’ve reanimated Rich over a dose of Nyquil and spooky Eagles green to get a quick and dirty podcast about a few things we’ve been watching and experiencing this past week.  Join us as we chat about assassins, baby stealers and scary writers, and maybe just a touch too much football.

Kill ‘Em With Kindness (Meta Quest 3, Talk To Me, PS5 Slim)

Kill ‘Em With Kindness (Meta Quest 3, Talk To Me, PS5 Slim)

After a brief and unexpected hiatus from the airwaves, we have returned to your weekly experience, dear listeners!  Our journey this week takes us through a pair of puzzle (and sometimes puzzling) games, a horror movie with Those Damned Kids in it, and a PS5 price increase, all leading to some commentary on Meta’s new VR/AR headset. 

Oct 22, 202301:28:10
Who wrote Doug Burgum? (Republican Debate, The Continental, No One Will Save You)

Who wrote Doug Burgum? (Republican Debate, The Continental, No One Will Save You)

There is little question that our world would be a fair bit better if it were filled with all assassins, all aliens or all pirates, but instead we have too many politicians. Rich and I discuss The Continental, No One Will Save You, and One Piece on our media consumption tour, and take some time to meander about the 2nd Republican Debates, as well as a few moments on the WGA strike victory.

Copilot Week (Microsoft Leaks, Tokyo Games Showcase, Surface and Copilot Announcements)

Copilot Week (Microsoft Leaks, Tokyo Games Showcase, Surface and Copilot Announcements)

It is with great pains that I bring you the news of the week, gentle listenership – we're talking about Microsoft stuff for a whole damned hour! Our topics du jour include a mammoth leak of pending plans for the Xbox division, a few notable announcements from the Tokyo Games Showcase, the Surface-but-totally-AI event in NYC this week, and a quick mention of ActiBlizzard fun.

Titanium Tapping - "Apple's Wanderlust Event 2023"

Titanium Tapping - "Apple's Wanderlust Event 2023"

While we did not take a break from watching television and movies this week, our ever-objective gaze was cast primarily on the Apple Wanderlust press event for 2023, where we were reminded that people wearing smartwatches are alive because of it, that tapping is the new swiping, and that a customizable button is as new and fresh as a USB-C port. Oh and Mother Nature is Octavia Spencer for five minutes.

"Mariah Carey vs. Free Jazz" - Beau is Afraid and Starfield Early Review

"Mariah Carey vs. Free Jazz" - Beau is Afraid and Starfield Early Review

It’s a double header of engrossing (or just grossing)content, as Rich and I discuss Beau Is Afraid along with this week’s full
release of Bethesda’s Starfield. We also briefly pause to give our reviews of soccer weather, Jackson Pollock paintings,
and John Wick 4’s law enforcement problem, most of which are topics we are quite qualified to discuss!







Sep 09, 202301:08:48
"Tree Monkeys on Nitrous Oxide" - Starfield, Bramble and Hijack

"Tree Monkeys on Nitrous Oxide" - Starfield, Bramble and Hijack

Well met, Star Travelers!  We take to the cosmos this week on a path towards this week’s early access release of Starfield.  I spend a few moments exploring Nordic mythology in my review of Bramble: The Mountain King, and we stare dreamily into Idris Elba’s eyes while appreciating the romp that is Hijack.  And we’ve finally answered the question: are they gay? 

Sep 02, 202301:30:55
Is it CG?

Is it CG?

Back in the land of proper professional audio, Rich and I relish in the extraordinary headroom and high fidelity of good gear to bring you this week’s episode. We take a few moments to chat about Avatar 2, stop off in Cologne, Germany for Gamescom 2023, and express rage and disappointment at Sony stealing another of Microsoft’s moves.
Aug 26, 202301:16:06
Gute Vorzeichen

Gute Vorzeichen

Another week of jam-packed schedules and alternative methods of recording is in store for us all, but Rich and I managed to bring it all together! With precious little media consumption time this week, I managed to eek out a viewing of Sisu, and Rich dances with angels and titans. Also, as my son said so many years ago, “Texas is damned hot.”

MySomerville Network

MySomerville Network

May it always be said that we are here for the work!  Rich is in the field this week and recording amidst technical hurdles to bring you the best in podcasting entertainment!  We continue a bit of Star Trek Discovery banter, and explore which is more WTF: Somerville or The Black Tower. 

Aug 10, 202301:06:19
Indictment, Insurrection & Isaacs

Indictment, Insurrection & Isaacs

It's a week of Discovery here on the Interscription pod, full of learnings on the inner workings of our political systems in the United States, Cintra and Nilfgard. I finally crack into Star Trek Discovery, and a week of completed seasons of shows are discussed, culminating in a pine-e promise to watch the Barbie Movie before we reconvene.
Aug 05, 202301:52:47
Live In The Studio

Live In The Studio

This week’s particular stretch of podcast road is done LIVE and IN PERSON, with Rich and I winging it on bellies full of burger and brew.  Topics include just how zany Strange New Worlds can get, and a staggeringly deep dive on the form factors available to us on the new crop of foldable phones introduced at this year’s Samsung Unpacked 2023.

Jason AIdean

Jason AIdean

“I don’t WANT to play anymore”, so sayeth your favorite podcast hosts. Today’s spirited interchange of ideas whisks us through being engaged in all the wrong places through social media. We thankfully stop our rambling train at the station to discuss AI and its diabolical implications on artists, and a small visit to some games I’ve been playing to pass the time until the robots come.
Jul 21, 202301:27:09
Rat Tale

Rat Tale

A lawyer's work is never done, and this has never been more true for our beer-enjoying on-staff legal representative, Rich.  We delve into the totally-not-final ruling of Judge Corley on the FTC v. Microsoft PI hearing, and I bid adieu to a tale of a plague, while holding up the coffee end of The Dehydration Duo.

Jul 14, 202301:21:24
A Mischief of Clones

A Mischief of Clones

Rats! Another week, another Twitter competitor enters the chat here in the tech world. In a short-by-explosive episode, Rich and I tackle the multitude of potential usurpers to Elon's new 44 billion dollar toy, as well as a moment or two on stealth games and the inquisition.

Jul 08, 202301:04:18
Assessing Wrath

Assessing Wrath

It would be a fine time for Rich and I to escape to the virtual world amidst the second round of smokey skies this year, and a freshly damaged roof situation.  Stay awhile as Rich discusses the stunning scale of Norse mythology in Asgard’s Wrath, and I chat a bit about how gross medieval rats are.  Too, this week would not be complete without not-so-quick stop in court to see how fair and balanced the FTC is being in the Microsoft-ABK merger proceedings.

Jun 30, 202301:42:50
Civic of Duty

Civic of Duty

This week is dominated by a round table (if a table of two can be round?) conversation on the highlights of the Xbox Games Showcase earlier this month.  We also are provided with expert legal analysis on the extremely current and shockingly exciting developments in the Microsoft ABK merger, but not before Rich and I share very different experiences in connected online games.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!

A Chorus of Portability

A Chorus of Portability

One of our shortest and sweetest episodes yet, we navigate a brief by fun tour of Asus' new portable handheld the ROG Ally, with a small stop at sci-fi ship shooter Chorus, and round it out with a celebration death knell for spinning platter hard drives

Thirty Four Ninety Nine

Thirty Four Ninety Nine

June brings with it a great many tech shows and season finales, so Rich and I are here to bring you our thoughts of those very things! Listen this week as I refuse anything but a gold star for Barry, wade through the sea of animation that comprises Across The Spiderverse, and then engage in a lengthy discussion on Apple’s WWDC announcements, with a special focus on Vision Pro spatial computing aspirations. Thanks for staying on this road with us!
Jun 09, 202302:00:08
It Was Always Tom

It Was Always Tom

It’s a death-defying episode of media and tech review this week, with a full segment dedicated to the world’s favorite Max show, the Succession Finale, and another dedicated towards escaping this world for the one Zuckerberg promises us with a VR overview and quick review for a noob to the meta quest pro. And a tease at a second podcast that we cooked up on the fly about making furniture!
Thanks for staying on this road with us!

Jun 02, 202301:35:32
Project What?

Project What?

In a rather uncharacteristic move for we the stewards of your consumable content, Rich and I spend the majority of this week’s episode discussing Sony’s Playstation Showcase for 2023. We cover the highs and lows of the announced games and the lows of the announced hardware. Oh, and a quick stop on why Nate sucks.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!

47 Cents & A Lollipop

47 Cents & A Lollipop

Another week has come and gone with Rich and I discussing the world of pop music, among other well-informed topics by your favorite podcasting duo. Enjoy a tailored episode of gaming reviews while Rich swiftly delivers his thoughts on Ghostwire: Tokyo and a staggering 15 minutes of Redfall. We also strike at
the bloody heart of the WGA negotiations, and whether their opposition will shake them off at the bargaining table.
Thanks for staying on this road with us!

Flatpack with Lips

Flatpack with Lips

Soaring through the AI-generated minds at Google, we spend our time parsing this week’s I/O conference, dreaming of a world where devices are flexible and priced fairly.  A quick stop in handheld PC gaming is also on our docket this week, discussing the Asus ROG Ally announcement, the future of Windows handhelds, and Rich Tripping the Tokyo Fantastic.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!  


May 12, 202301:32:37
This Week's Bloodbath

This Week's Bloodbath

It’s been a pretty terrifically tough week for Microsoft with the one-two punch of the UK’s CMA ruling, and a less-than-charitable reception for Redfall in the press. Fear not, though, as Phil Spencer takes to the virtual airwaves with pragmatism and humility, while giving us a strong foundation to discuss Microsoft’s current position in the gaming universe this week.

YellowSmokingJacket

Nuns with complicated relationship dynamics?  A Steam Deck with an extra helping of Win and juice?  Legal kung-fu?  Allow us to be your age-appropriate elected officials as we navigate the labyrinthine world of tech rumors, tech competition, and a small thing called The Presidency.

14 Top Exes, Needed Two...Why?

14 Top Exes, Needed Two...Why?

Cath Crowley said, “If you don’t want a generation of robots, fund the arts!”  Rich and I are here to answer all of the world’s questions when robots are the ones making art, and what might be left for us poor meatbags and our dwindling supply of horses.  Speaking of Beef, we speak further on the completed season, and take a moment to praise Barry, the best television ever, according to your favorite two robots.

FPS to the Max

FPS to the Max

If you’re feeling a little bit emotionally askew, allow us to prop you up while we electrify you with the thoughtful discussion on movies and shows we’ve experienced this last week.  As always, we want to increase engagement, enhance retention, strengthen performance and optimize monetization in our sitting room of media exploration.

Thanks for STANDING on this road with us!

The Liberals Won

The Liberals Won

Pull up an expensive and well-intentioned virtue seat here at the Interscription podcast, gentle listeners!  As half the world celebrates a resounding success for Tuesday, we concentrate on a great many items, new and evergreen, including our Life’s True Potential as Podcasters, shows that are and are not Half Bad, and whether any of us have grooved hard enough today.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!

Tween Riker

Tween Riker

Back at this for our Season 2 Premiere episode, Rich and I find out that Internet is a utility, Star Trek CAN be great again, and Donald Glover is generally never wrong.  I take fleeting moment to praise a small slice of Succession, we replace Extrapolation on our watchlist, and we even take the time to be grumpy old men about advertising on paid services.

Thanks for staying on this road with us! 


Mar 31, 202301:31:00
Year One

Year One

To the surprise and delight of all (or at least, your humble podcast hosts), we have arrived at a full year of weekly podcasts!  Rich and I reflect on the journey thus far, and the road not yet traveled.  We also chat on a couple of Oscar contenders, a masterful McEvoy performance, and sex-crazed Russian refrigerators.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!  All Year Long!

Legal Right To Skeet

Legal Right To Skeet

This week’s podcast was truly a miraculous deliverance, intentioned with ideas and musings on the content we love and love to share. Come with us on our detour towards how vile copyright can be to the consumption and preservation of art, and my subsequent incongruent by-the-numbers assessment of The Last of Us against its groundswell of support by the Playstation faithful. Perhaps Tom Petty said it best when he shared, “As we celebrate mediocrity, all the boys upstairs want to see. How much you'll pay for what you used to get for free.”

Crockets

Crockets

By the skin of our teeth we crossed this week’s finish line of the podcast race, dear listeners! While I struggle through a temporary podcasting workstation this week, discussions of two totally current TV shows have indeed occurred. We also lament some delayed games for 2023, while simultaneously praising Rich’s near clairvoyant power to forsee Starfield’s new later release

Thanks for staying on this road with us!

FUND IT

FUND IT

It’s as fine a week as any to welcome our robot overlords! We have a totally non-AI-powered podcast for you, fine listeners, tackling a good Star Wars game from yore, and a pair of movies now fully digested by the both of us for proper commentary. There’s even a pour-out for the Nevers sequel movie that only exists in our heads and...in Bing’s datacenters now, I guess.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!

Nevermania

Nevermania

Who knew that lawyering could be both fun AND informative? Your loyal podcasting team here at Interscription, that’s who! A fond farewell is bid to our Victorian X-women in our review of Part 2 of The Nevers, a touch of controversy (always good for flavor) is in discussion around The Last of Us, and we dive a bit into Microsoft’s ongoing stratagems to acquire ABK.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!

All 'Cels Are Bad

All 'Cels Are Bad

We have arrived in an alternate dimension where I am talking about football for longer than the sport deserves! Please send help (and properly accessible copies of The Nevers) as we find more things to complain about, like technology not listening to us, and how upsells in productivity software is hella lame.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!

Starfield in Israel

Starfield in Israel

 What better time than now for us to inspect the State of OUR Union here at Interscription, a place where politics, mushrooms, Nazis and cel-shading get equal air time! This week’s haul is rife with connection, with relationships, and with 8’s across the board. Join our week in review on shows current and less-so, and even a rhythm-filled Rush of Hi-Fidelity in our nod of gaming.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!

There’s Always Problems With The Humans

There’s Always Problems With The Humans

It was Nicholas Johnson who said, “A viewer who skips the advertising is the moral equivalent of a shoplifter.” Steal away an hour of your time with us as we waywardly wind through a myriad of topics, ranging from how to advertise to people in this new world, a couple of dystopian shows to be hopeful for, and a chat around the lawful use of our precious Netflix accounts.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!

The Rush of Hi Fidelity

The Rush of Hi Fidelity

Rich rides to the rescue this week to carry most of the talking while I am on the mend and full of throat lozenges and vitamin C.  We take some time to chat on the topic of digital wellness, beat up Servant for the subpar repeating mess that it is, and take a walk through the announcements from Microsoft’s Xbox Developer Direct show.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!

Your Hoodie is In My Carbon Footprint

Your Hoodie is In My Carbon Footprint

Just in under the wire, Rich and I get a Friday recording prepared for you, gentle listeners! Journey with us as we offer some caught-up thoughts on Gangs of London, and the pokey genius of Servant’s first season. We make a stop at Microsoft fumbling the ball on a couple of optics, and the frustrations around air travel under less than comfortable circumstances.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!

Stay-At-Home Cookies

Stay-At-Home Cookies

CES came and went, and much to our chagrin, only one flying car was announced! Come on this 2023 journey with us while we explore the poor choices of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association during the Golden Globes, whether or not we’re destined to be relegated to our homesteads for all time, and whether coconut belongs on anything, let alone cookies.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!

Frank West of Dead

Frank West of Dead

Ringing in the New Year with quality podcasting content is a two-player game, and Rich and I are up to the task! The winter break, coupled with a healthy dose of not being healthy, has given way to some much needed media catchup. Join us as we chat about shows and games old and new, and remind the audience that Netflix can break our collective hearts as well.

We talk about Gangs of London, Favorite shows of 2022, A First season take on the Halo show, Slow Horses, and games, including West of Dead, Neon White, Dysmantle and revisiting Jedi Fallen Order in Storyteller mode.

The Future is Now

Where has the time gone? And what were the best and most entertaining ways we spent that time? I finish this year out solo, tissues and cough drops at the ready to share my favorite 2022 experiences in games, movies and TV shows, as well as my predictions for the same in 2023. Have the best and most rewarding 2023, and...

Family Matters

Family Matters

The FTC is continuing to spread holiday cheer to all those who might congregate a bit too closely this time of year, gifting a $520 Million fine to Epic Games. Rich and I spill more than a few words on family safety for online gaming, and stumble headlong into the Internet of Things and the new Matter standard. Happy holidays to all, and...

Raised by Neverworld

Raised by Neverworld

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the stream, HBO Max and Warnermedia have decided to execute some popular and beloved properties, leaving us to navigate more ethically murky streaming waters if we want to experience their content. A detour back into the FTC complaint towards Microsoft’s pending acquisition is in order, and we wrap with a quick rundown of some TV and gaming stops for our past week.

God of aWards

God of aWards

The Game Awards are here, brimming with world premiere trailers, celebrity surprises, and, in a totally surprising upset, approximately 412 wins for God of War: Ragnarok.  Rich and I wind through our impressions of the reveals, as well as a brief bit catching up on all of the recent Activision-Blizzard-King acquisition news.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!

A SMPTE of The Sickness

A SMPTE of The Sickness

Welcome To Interscription

We have returned from the US Thanksgiving holiday filled with cheer, football, pie and stories about bigger TVs. This week has us tackling Rich’s completed thoughts on Deathloop, a great pitch to me on getting around to Andor finally, and some nods to this month in gaming history.

Thanks for staying on this road with us!

Zombie. By the Cranberries.

Zombie. By the Cranberries.

As the slide into Thanksgiving in America here in 2022 is in full effect, we reflect on the only right way to cranberry, why pie and steak are basically the same, and yes, TV shows and movies too. George Miller’s newest movie, the shambling end of The Walking Dead, and Rich People Doing Stuff At Hotels are our targets this week, along with finding sweatpants to accommodate our lust for desserts. Happy Turkey Day!
