The Podwits themselves are god-knows-where, celebrating whatever bizarre holidays that get celebrated ’round this time of year in Podwits-land. It’s probably best we don’t ask too many questions about that. But while they’re away, here for your holiday listening enjoyment is one of our favorite podcasts from the past, our second cartoon special from February […]

Watching ‘Man Of Steel’ – The Dilemma

Posted: December 29, 2013 by J. Marcus in Uncategorized

Hello there!  J. Marcus here.  So, my friends did the best thing possible and got me “Man Of Steel” for Christmas.  This means I finally get to see it, and bring my critique to the world. Before I can do that, though, I’m left with the question of… Can I be unbiased?  I have professed […]

(After watching the horrible 2013 Muppet Special entitled Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular, I wanted to republish an article that ran on Podwits.com in 2011 about one of the best Christmas Specials of all time, the 1987 A Muppet Family Christmas. This may have been the last great thing Mr. Henson put out before […]

The Podwits are sailing to new heights, literally this week. Dion single-handedly recasts Man of Steel as a Hammer Film, going as far as getting Peter Lorre on loan from Roger Corman, while Brian lets us in on his waning interest in Season 4 of The Walking Dead and its colossal mid-season finale. It’s a literal laugh-out-loud edition of […]

Dion and contributor J. Blake are back for what is probably their BIGGEST (and LONGEST) Side Cast yet! After an extended intro of probably the duo’s worst college drinking story, they ease into the Christmas Spirit by way of Whittier Alaska, the Krampus (Saint Nick‘s long-lost brother), and the posthumously released Phil Hartman animated Christmas movie. Nothing is off […]

Last week, I shared one of my favorite new British Christmas adverts I saw while home in Leeds, Yorkshire. The Marks & Spencers Christmas ad “Believe in Magic & Sparkle”, was a perfect example of the short little vignettes that English audiences have come to love in the Christmas season.

The cold weather is seeping into the Podwits’ bones, as the boys do their best impression of grumpy old men. They’ve decided that the Lady Gaga & The Muppets Holiday Spectacular, the iPotty and MTV all basically add up to the impending end of Western civilization as we know it. Whether you agree with ’em […]

On a recent trip back home to Leeds, I was excited to see the start of the yearly roll out of the new Christmas adverts. It has become somewhat of a loving tradition which never really seemed to take off here in the States, much like our other custom of the highly-anticipated “Christmas Episode” of our favorite […]

This week, the lights are on, the tape is rolling and the Podwits are back in an all-new podcast!  In this brand-new episode, J and Dion tackle the perceptions of time!  (No kidding!)  The boys also take a musical interlude into the wonderful world of film and television soundtracks.  Finally the masters of podcasting tackle […]

Please Stand By

Hello everyone.  My name is Gooshie.  I am the technical director for The Podwits.  Long-time listeners are probably surprised to see me writing in English.  As it turns out, English is my first language.  I honestly think The Podwits just pretend they don’t understand me so that they can ignore me. At any rate, I’m […]
