Episode 30: Two Baldwins Deep (ft. Giovanni Colantonio)

The 1993 film Super Mario Bros is notorious for 1) being very bad, and 2) inadvertently creating a sub-genre of crappy movie adaptations of popular video games. So this week, we’re finally going to right this wrong and re-shoot the Mario Bros movie the right way. Problem is, we don’t actually create new concepts, we just steal from the likes of Wes Anderson, Martin Scorsese, and...the dudes from Super Troopers. Thank God we brought in guest expert Giovanni Colantonio to help pen this masterpiece.

You can listen to more of Giovanni talking about video games on Left Trigger Right Trigger, or check out Fullmetal Bazinga, an improvised science-fiction audio drama based on the final season of the Big Bang Theory!

A trainer’s first Pokemon is arguably the most important impact on how their fighting style develops and more importantly how they grow as a trainer and as a person. So naturally, the Pokemon that best map onto our personalities are a goopy snot dragon, a swole fish with large calves, and a metallic pangolin walled off from emotions. Fortunately, Tom Zalatnai from Up for Discussion and Blasting Off Again stopped by to remind us that there is good in the world, and that a Pokemon can be used to improve society and are not just for Instagram fan pages.

You can check out Tom’s work and other shows on the Upford Network at upfordnetwork.com.

We’ve also all had that moment one-hit-KO-ing Erika’s Vileplume where we think we can do better. This week, Debate This! asks the question, “What would your Pokemon Gym do differently?”
