Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

It finally happened. Robert Bacon is on this podcast. Sorry everybody. But he did pick a great movie to reminisce about. The movie that propelled Jim Carrey to stardom. The movie that made every 8th grader in 1994 hilarious: ACE VENTURA: PET DETECTIVE.

Remakes begin at 47mins: Laura cranks up the 007 Style; Rob sets it in 1985 with a new cast; and Bacon incorporates the Chicago Bears for Ace Ventura 3.

100th Episode! Street Fighter!

100 Episode! Holy Cow! We did it. We made it to 100 episodes. 

The very first remake was Super Mario Bros, so we figured for the 100th we do another failed video game adaptation: STREET FIGHTER.

This was recorded back in May featuring Josiah Jenkins, Josh Segovia, Geoff Crump, Morgan Lord, Peyton Brown, James Dugan, Kelly McGuigan, Jon Silver and a special Murdoch Minute with Jeff Murdoch. 

A big thanks to all our past guests and a special bigger thanks to all the listeners. We truly appreciate it. Enjoy!
