Gob Bluth (Andy) vs. Kevin Smith (James) at NPR
Holy friggin' moly, strap in for the longest, most dramatic, action packed episode of Battlecast yet. It's Arrested Development's Master Illusionist, Gob Bluth, battling multi-talented media maven, Kevin Smith, through the NPR airwaves. You'll see some familiar faces and some not so much. On top of all of this madness, rapper/comedian/writer for Epic Rap Battles of History... ZACH SHERWIN features as a guest cameo. Oh so much fun.

Warning: Yes, "stupider" is a word. And no, James doesn't know how to rules.

Enter Battlecast....half stupid podcast and half humanitarian super-being. Oh yeah, and we make fun of Popes.

Warning: Andy would like some what?

The boys (as girls) take a lovely stroll through the internet in this week's edition of Battlecast.

All your favorite websites become home to this brutal beatdown: Reddit, 4chan, Autoblog, and for a fleeting moment of pure joy, Space Jam's original 1996 page.

Warning: We're terrible people.

 Wyle E. Coyote (Dan) vs. Zack Morris (James) Downton Abbey.

This week, two icons of your childhood go head to head in a castle from a show that only pretentious jerks appreciate. Kidding. Downton Abbey is probably fine. Probably. Will it be the coyote with the entire catalogue of Acme products at his clawed fingertips or the upper class high-school enigma with the inexplicable power to stop time? Who knows....? Not you obviously.

Warning: Poor Dan.

Nathan Drake (Jay Huerto) vs. Dick Butt (Andy) at Jumanji.


We roll things out this season with a special guest... the incredibly talented and dear, dear, dear friend of the show's, Jay Huerto. More importantly, yes, we are definitely filing a class-action lawsuit against Andy for the character he chose. This week, we stroll through uncharted territory with Nathan Drake and Dick Butt in the Jumanji Mansion. P.S. sorry our audio gets fucked a few times - new mixer growing-pains.

Warning: Dick butt.

Records reset to zero after last episode.

Season 2 of Battlecast is over... Comic-Con is over... equally miserable facts of life... BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! The second penta-annual Futurama Space-TWO-cuLRRR is here with all four of us sclum-bags battling for our right to remind everyone about having won for a few weeks. Dust off your brain-slug and fasten your Finglongers, it's gonna be a wild ride.

We're not going to lie and say that this is a good episode. We will, however, lie and say that it's a decent episode.


Dan, Andy, and Dave tool around Comic Con forcing cosplayers to fight each other. Also a guy playing drums on a streetlight gave Dan a few shots of the Fireball in his pants. Also we saw Donal Logue. Also Andy can't speak English.


Thanks to Jeff Rector, San Diego's Zombee, and The Pod Brother for chatting with us.


Warning: We know this episode is meandering and unlistenable... but you never know when a certain Futurama Space-TWO-cuLRRR may come out. This week. Ok, you do know.
