Episode 90: The Taffy Pulling Is Interesting

Happy Friday!

In minute 90, we find out that a million pieces of something take a long to put together. Grandpa Joe makes an awful (but funny) dad joke. Mike appears to be conscious during the transportation process, which leads to a discussion about the transportation process in the Star Trek universe. Mike is now so small he can fit into his mother’s purse, and Mike is unhappy about it, and trying to let his mother know it. We finish by discussing the flexibility of small children

Episode 88: Everything Always Comes Back to Nickelback

It’s a brand new week! Thanks for starting it with us!

In minute 88, Mike Teevee is interrupting Willy Wonka, and explains television poorly. Wonka explains how he created Wonkavision…poorly. Also, we realize how much of this scene is lost in translation with today’s television technology. Jason explains his version of 4K to David. We briefly discuss video formats, and why formats end up being adopted. Jason makes a Star Trek reference that completely goes over David’s head. Wonka gives us another literary quote, and we talk Lewis Carroll’s gifts to the literary canon.

Episode 85: It’s Pretty, It’s So Pretty

Happy Labor Day (to our US listeners)!

In minute 85, the Oompa Loompas finish their song, and we move on to a new room. Wonka has a treat for us, because, apparently, he’s going into…motorsports? That’s weird. Anyway, we learn a few things right away about the Wonkamobile, specifically what it’s powered by. Jason and David spend some time talking about the different sodas that are used to power the Wonkamobile, specifically which ones don’t appear to be real, which ones appear to be generic names, and which ones are specific brands. We also talk about the habits of rabbits, as well as John Keats’ poem, Endymion. There are also numerous digressions in this episode.
