This week’s Podwits Podcast find the boys hitting every nuance of the emotional spectrum. They are thrilled as J. Marcus relays his reaction to the recent Simpsons/Family Guy crossover episode; they are stunned and appalled over the breaking news regarding actor Stephen Collins; and they reminisce on word that the era of Saturday morning cartoons has […]

This week Dion and J. jump right into it! The boys discuss Quentin Tarantino’s dismay over the leaking of his new script, The Hateful Eight; the James Bond 50th anniversary Box Set and it’s extras; the exciting news that the 1966 Batman TV series will FINALLY get a proper DVD release; and a dissection of J’s Side Cast with […]

Sadly, the latter has not been as rewarding and fruitful in the world of the Muppets since Mr. Henson’s passing. Who or what is to blame? That is a debate for another day. […]

Who would of known. I don’t know why it has taken until 2011 for this to come out, but rumor on the street  is the classic Muppet song “Mahna Mahna” is from a  1968 Italian porn film entitled Sweden: Heaven and Hell. Huh.
