Rated “A” for Awesome!

The PodwitsThe boys are cookin’ and steamin’ this morning! They first jump into their love for Preservation Hall in New Orleans, which leads into a very spirited discussion of their love of all things Jazz. They chat about their favorite jazz musicians, jazz albums, and even give off-the-cuff 5 jazz picks for anyone wanting to get into the genre. Dion waxes for his love of Frank Sinatra and breaks down the theory of the ‘concept album‘ and Frank’s connection, and after briefly touching on the history of how Blues legends learned how to play down in the Delta, Brian then presents the philosophical (or rhetorical) question of the old school musicians who learned to play in the smoky clubs or backwoods juke joints, versus the modern-day musicians who instead now learn their trade academically, in schools and universities- is there a difference in heart and feeling? And did the bitterness we saw in the 1960’s-70’s from some Blues icons toward the British-invasion white-bands justified? We’re improvin’ it all the way home in this brand new edition of the Podwits Podcast!

Side-CastsJ. Blake and Dion Baia are back for another exciting installment of the Podwits Side Cast! This week the boys have picked 10 live albums that they feel are great and  *must* listens for anyone unfamiliar with them. The boys have managed to narrow it down to 5 each, and try to surprise each other as to what is on each list and why they think each album has a place on said lists. So come on down and see which picks the boys decided on and see if you know them all, on this week’s edition of the Podwits Side Cast.

The PodwitsThe boys get into some pretty heady, philosophical debates this week, concerning the right of the fan towards art. Starting with the cancellation of various TV shows they’ve known and loved, Dion and Brian segue into the idea of continuing a franchise’s life through new material, be it either penned by fans or officially sanctioned by the creators; is that ok? The topic of responsiblity of an artist to the fan is weighed- be it in movies, television, print or music, and what then of the responsiblity of the fan to an artist? Hmmm…. It’s a fun ride this week on another exciting and educating edition of the Podwits podcast!


Idris Elba will reprise his role as Luther.

William Goldman wrote The Princess Bride. Brian was almost there…

The PodwitsBrian once again fancies himself a Bond villain, and tries to distract those meddling Podwit kids with talk of clever marketing and despotic Brooklyn movie theaters! Dion’s full of fun facts about advertising legend Jerry Della Femina and how advertising price discounts can be illegal in Denmark! J. tells us all about how his time living in East Flatbush turned him into a heartless killer! Shenanigans abound on this all new Podwits Podcast!

Here’s one of the Famous Grouse commercials Dion was talking about:

The PodwitsHold onto your hats and masks ladies and germs!  This week’s Podcast has a very special look into the mind of the man behind the man behind the man behind the man behind the man behind the all work and no play make Gooshie a dull boy…kjdlsf,kjnsdfam,vsiu

Sorry about that.  Anyway… It’s the one and only J. Marcus Voorhees on this week’s cast!  He’s here to spill the beans about his dinners with Mr. K and to express his joys and sorrows over the recent Halloween season.  Oh and did you hear about the big news this week?  A very special TV show is finally making it to a home theater near you after decades of seclusion!

It’s a spooky edition of the Podwits Podcast that you’ll have to hear to believe!

The PodwitsWell what else can be said about this week’s all new installment of The Podwits Podcast except that it is EPIC

We hear how J. Marcus and Dion first met Brian on the Coney Island boardwalk; Beer connoisseur Brian lambasts Guinness’ new Blonde Lager and praises this week’s choice drink; Dion vents about the news that Operation Board Game creator Joe Spinello cannot afford surgery he now needs; and what is the best way to get Brian and J. to finally agree about something? Well, to get them to tag team against Dion on his salty feelings over the new Marvel Phase 3 plans that were announced earlier this week. So jump into the Podwits’ Delorean DMC-12 Station wagon (yes, station wagon) and come enjoy the further adventures with the boys as they travel all over time and space from the days of Vaudeville, all the way to 2020, where the last DC Comics franchise movie is slated to drop. Plus an all NEW edition of the Borgninian Moment! Come have a listen! #PodwitsBeer #DionisWrong #SpoilersBad

UPDATE: Hasbro plans to buy creator Spinello’s prototype game with the hopes that will cover his medical costs.

Night of the Podwits!Dion and Brian are letting it all hang out this week! Dion’s been reading the classic Fu Manchu mysteries written a century ago by Sax Rohmer (real name: Arthur Henry Ward), and that’s got him and Brian biting into a heavy topic: could ol’ Fu, or other culturally problematic old heroes like Charlie Chan or Mr. Moto, have a place in the entertainment world of today? Find out what the Podwits think, plus the (kinda hilarious) meaning of our cryptic episode title, in this all-new podcast! #PodwitsTailoring

The black member of the Young Allies, whose name completely eluded Brian during this podcast, was Whitewash Jones.

Side-CastsWith the success of their last Halloween themed Side Cast and posting on Saturday Night Movie Sleepovers where J.Blake and Dion Baia recommend some horror films they both feel may have fallen through the cracks or have been overlooked, the boys meet back at the Podwits studios to record a quick cast about the zombie genre. With the record-breaking premiere of Season 5 of The Walking Dead, they chat about some Living Dead films they think be have been forgotten and clutch for fans of the genre. Come take a listen to this speedy, ‘commuter cast‘ the boys did on the fly for another installment of The Podwits Side Cast!
