Where are they going? What does it mean for The Big Time Podcast? Are we overreacting with so many questions? And most importantly... why in the world is this episode called "Hashtag - Trail Of Underpants?" All these questions (or most of them) are answered in a VERY "special" episode.
We bounce from topic to topic and are more scattered than ever this week, as Kevin and Ernie talk about the Harry Potter game of Quidditch being played in real life. Kevin teaches a class on card counting and also talks about his issues with math.
This week the gang sits down to discuss their past filmed efforts, which are available for you to watch on YouTube. Hear stories that include: Encounters with the police (while wearing costumes), a strange and disturbing discovery in a graveyard, and hear what happens when a flying harness breaks while in use! All this, and we still had time to do another round of bad celebrity impressions!
This week Kevin actually manages to get in a word or two in as we conclude our special two-part Valentine’s Day celebration with more talk of love, loss… and psycho break-ups.
It’s the “month of love” so Kevin and Bryan offer their thoughts and perspectives about love and loss for Valentine’s Day. Bryan tries to de-throne Kevin in the “talks too much” department talking about all his “feelings.” He talks so much that we had to split this into two parts. So cuddle up, stay warm and get ready to open your heart (but not in a by-pass kind of way) for part one of this “special” two-part episode.
This week Kevin’s under attack after some “verbal feedback” on the show is given. Also, a new segment wherein the boys do their “best” impressions of celebrities and try to recite famous movie monologues. Seriously, its like the arctic everywhere you go these days… so what else do you have to do besides listen?
The original gameshow episode has been recovered from the great beyond!
Special note about this episode
As some of you may remember, the original run of The BigTime Podcast was 36 episodes. In 2015, the podcast took a two year hiatus and all episodes were removed from our hosting site. At some point during the break, the hard drive storing all of the original episodes crashed. When the podcast returned in 2017, we started where the show left off at episode 37, but we only had recovered a few of the original episodes which left many new listeners wondering, "Where are episodes 1-36?".
So now you know! And knowing is half the battle!
We are working to recover all of the original episodes and will continue to upload them as they become available.
The original episode description is below.
This week, Kevin and Ernie face off in a special game show where one lucky listener could win a $20 Target gift card. Note: Portions of this episode not affecting the outcome of the game were HEAVILY edited. In other words there’s some REALLY long pauses between questions and answers so we just tightened things up so there’s not so much dead air.
This week, special guest co-host Rob Whitt rejoins Bryan to conclude the conversation on Man Of Steel and other Superman related topics. In addition, thoughts are offered as to how DC Comics can improve their "New 52" lineup. We kept it clean last time, so don't be too surprised if there's at least one little bit of profanity in this weeks show. Again, special thanks to Jeff McDonough for The Big Time Podcast theme... We really need to hire an announcer and get some professional credits for this show so we don't have to keep addressing oversights from the actual show in the show notes.
Here it is, returned to the delight of the masses. The most popular episode in Big Time history returns. We never knew what sparked the popularity of this particular episode, but here it is again as Bryan and Kevin conclude their interviews of each other and the most shocking secret is revealed... or you know, profanity is uttered... whatever.
