Episode 102: Louisville Arcade Expo recap

This week Kyle and Ryan breakdown their wild weekend at the Louisville Arcade Expo a yearly pilgrimage to play arcade games and meet good friends they don’t get to see very often. this episode has lots of little snippets but the highlight is the step by step recap of Ryans blackout episode that he doesn’t remember. SO join us this week as we recap and bridge the gap!

Episode 101: Black Panther

We here at Experience Grind Podcast are all about pushing boundaries and going against the status quo, some would even say we have taken steps to “Bridge the Gap” if you will so we bravely bring you the episode you’ve been waiting for with baited breath “Two nerdy white guys drunkenly talk about Black Panther”
We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we did watching it and recording it.

Also yes this is late it was supposed to come out on Friday but we forgot to upload it before we left on vacation to the Louisville Arcade Expo. Spoiler alert the next episode will be about Louisville Arcade Expo.

Episode 100: A Look Back

Today is a day that will live in historical records for eternity, Experience Grind has reached 100 episodes! (Although it’s actually episode 121…Holy Crap I just looked that up, that’s a lot)

Kyle & Ryan site down and take a moment to reflect on where the show has come from and where they want it to go. They tackle things like their favorite and least favorite episodes and dream together about who would be a dream guest. Also help us get one of them tweet at Kevin Smith and tell him you want to hear him on our show!

Last of course thank you to you guys that listen we still don’t know why you do but we appreciate that you do.

Cheers! to another 100 episodes!

Episode 99: Monster Hunter World

 

Boy oh boy do we hope you like tangent episodes because this one is chock full of em! We talk about monsters from our childhood, real life monsters and a lot of very thinly related things. We also do talk about Monster Hunter World and what it contains within and if we like it or not…eventually we do.

We are now 1 episode away from #100 and we still don’t know what to do to celebrate it. Lets be honest, probably nothing.

Episode 98: The Cloverfield Paradox

This week Kyle & Ryan have come together to give you their opinions of the brand new NetFlix release “The Cloverfield Paradox” (a J.J. Abrams joint) they talk about this new trend of adapting pre-existing screenplay/movies and turning them into something new. They also talk about letting people down or being a disappointment (They are unrelated to the movie, or are they?….)
Anyways thanks for listening get your t-shirt orders in if you want one!

Norm Macdonald getting his own Netflix talkshow?

Rumors are coming out that Norm Macdonald is in talks to have his own talk show on Netflix similar to David Letterman and Chelsea Handler. I am very excited at this news as Norm has been one of my favorite comedians ever since I first saw him on  Weekend Update. I was a young boy but really enjoyed his dry, cutting humor. I remember my mother telling me when he was fired from SNL and how sad I was.

Norm eschews most normal interview trappings and tries to have an honest but humorous conversation with the people he interviews on his podcast “Norm Macdonald LIVE”. He peppers jokes in constantly while speaking and sometimes purposefully tries to trip up his guests.

Norm has been known as your favorite comedians favorite comedian but seems to have mostly flown under the radar from most main stream appreciations, the man has a wit that is cutting and an almost unrivaled understanding of timing watch for his example how he has fun on the Conan show and saves a pretty mediocre and boring interview.

I look very forward to this news and hope for my selfish sake it comes true.

-Kyle

Episode 97: Big Trouble in Little China

This week sees the return of a previous guest that Kyle & Ryan enjoy immensely. Alex from Chicago returns and he brought a lot of booze with him. He also watched the wrong movie (He watched “Big Trouble” from a few episodes ago) so they spend part of this episode talking about that movie again. #Russellfest continues on and they do eventually discuss the title episode albeit briefly. A revisit is probably do to give this one justice. Thanks for listening we hope you enjoy Alex as much as we did.

Episode 96: Final Fantasy IX

So let’s get the cat out of the bag, Kyle & Ryan don’t like Final Fantasy 9. That said they only hate this game for a short time, while also discussing a lot of classic RPG’s and lesser known hits and spend some time breaking down Michael Bay Transformer movies for some reason. It is a really fun an interesting episode but if you Love Final Fantasy 9 it’s going to make you mad. Spoiler Warning I guess…

Episode 95: 2017 Movies 2.0 The Remixening

The boys are finally prepared to leave 2017 in the past…after this episode. Kyle & Ryan sit down one more time to go a little further in depth with the movies they didn’t get a chance to with Sound Engineer Andry (sometimes that guy has a way of dominating the conversation *shrug) They also talk a lot about fetishes and the kind of things Kevin Spacey is into…sexually. They might have coined a new kink, listen and find out!

Episode 94: Movies of 2017

Kyle & Ryan are joined again by the great episode guest and frequent discussion tangent driver Sound Engineer Andry to discuss the movies of 2017, they hit on the movies they like and that they don’t like and for some reason spend a lot of time on Netflix *shrug* as always the epsiode is full of discussion but sometimes not on the intended topic. There is a nice etymology of the word “cool” so we hope you enjoy that and the rest of this episode.

Episode 93: Video Games Year in Review 2017

For the first episode of our annual best of Kyle & Ryan try to cram in talking about as many games as possible. They have switched the format up this year instead of a “Top5” list they have instead opted to only list their #1 and then also discuss the other games they really liked and the ones that they didn’t like that much either. It is a classic EG episode with tangents, foul language and maybe some off color jokes. We can’t wait for you to hear it.
