It’s a holiday special for a special holiday! In the last episode of season two, Fern and Jamie unwrap their love for all things Christmas. Personal holiday traditions, and favorite and not-so-favorite movies, TV specials, and music. Then on to their own Christmas lists – cool gift ideas and what they’d like from Santa this year. Thanks to a devoted listener, the last snacky snack of the year was Hawaii-made cookies. So delicious, or as they say in the islands, so “ono”!
Our intrepid podcasters were on the road for this episode, so naturally they chatted about roadtrips. In the lush, green city of Hilo on the island of Hawaii (aka The Big Island), Fernando and Jamie shared their roadtrip experiences, tips, and celebrities we’d want along for the ride. Then, they put actor Chevy Chase on the stand for a thoughtful round of Talent or No Talent. When on the road, you have to sample something from the region, so they sampled organic walnut date rolls from a local health food store.
This episode is all about the precarious world of dating. In this episode, our podcasters dredged up their personal dating stories and shared dating don’ts, and of course, dating movies and music. Then, it was time for Prime Picks, where they share and recommend what they’re watching these days. The snacky snack they tried was matcha (green tea) flavored Oreos.
In tribute to their podcast’s second home, Fern and Jamie donned their parkas to talk about the Great White North – their personal stories about Canada, plus favorite entertainers and movies. Then, they put the spotlight on actor Ryan Reynolds for a round of Talent or No Talent. The snacky snack they tasted reminded them of a frozen tundra – chocolate mint Kit Kat.
It was a dark and stormy episode with Fern and Jamie, in which our podcasters shared their own Halloween traditions, fave costumes, candy, movies, and more. Then it was a hair-raising Who Would Win match between Dracula and Pennywise the clown. In a fitting end, the snacky snack this time was Kit Kat Dark. Muwahahahaha!
With alcohol wipes in hand, Fern and Jamie get into it about germs, including personal germ stories, germ myths, and of course, germy movies! Then they pick one of the most famous germophobes, Howie Mandel, and determine if he has Talent or No Talent. After that, the gloves are off for a taste test of kyo matcha flavored Oreo chocolate.
In the immortal words of Doc Brown: “Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.” In this episode, Fern and Jamie leap into the world of time travel. Is time travel possible? Who would you want to meet from the past or future? And of course, fave time travel movies and TV. Then our podcasters easily answer the question of Talent or No Talent in an homage to actor Christopher Lloyd. This time, they sample Kyoho Grape Kit Kat from Japan.
The youngsters have all returned to school, which made our podcasters reminisce about their own angst-ridden years at the old HS. They shared their best and worst high school movie picks, and more. Then they pitted two high school movie nerds of different generations against each other in another rousing Who Would Win match. The snacky snack they sampled this time was strawberry milkshake creme Oreos!
These days, you can’t swing an MGM lion without hitting a film franchise. Fernando and Jamie reveal their favorites, and the ones that should never have gone beyond one. Then it’s a fun Who Would Win match between a beloved monster and the king of film franchises. For the taste test, our podcasters sampled banana Kit Kat.
Welcome to season two! Episode one’s topic is something everyone has in their kitchen: MUGS! Hate ‘em, love ‘em. Are they practical or just aesthetic? We then shared some “Prime Picks” - shows that have captured our attention during our break. Our highly anticipated snacky snack was Wasabi Doritos!
For our season one finale, what better way to celebrate than with a splash of glitz? For once, what happened in Vegas didn’t stay there, because our podcasters shared their LV memories, faves, and more. Then Fern and Jamie flipped through the cast of the Ocean’s Eleven (2001) movie in a session of Talent or No Talent. Their snacky snack to taste this time was (of course) Hershey’s Gold.
Come on down! In this episode, our podcasters talked (actually, they argued a lot) about game shows – some history, the decades, faves, and more. Then in another Who Would Win session, they pitted two giants of game show host-dom against each other. The taste test this time was an expired (but still good) carton of matcha potato snacks from Japan.
We hope you packed your shades for this episode, because Fernando and Jamie give you the insider’s list of island attractions you shouldn’t miss when you visit Hawaii. Plus, some etiquette and tips to follow while you’re here. Then it’s the battle of the “Hawaii boys” in Who Would Win. Our taste test this time is an intriguing combo snack from Japan.
They may be lesser characters, but are no less essential to our favorite TV shows or movies. They’re called sidekicks, and our podcasters trade jabs at faves and the ones that they’d rather kill off in the first five minutes of the storyline. Then they put one of the quintessential sidekicks - Batman’s Robin - on the stand for another round of “Talent or No Talent.” And for the taste test, they thought it was high time to bust out another boozy chocolate bar.
In this episode, Fernando and Jamie talk about child actors – which ones we want to hug to death, and which ones need a time-out. Then keeping with the child actor theme, we face off in another “Who Would Win” debate – the Battle of the Karate Kids. And before we signed off, we sampled a hot chili potato snack from Japan called “Karamucho.” Cold beer would have been perfect with it!
Smear your nostrils with Vicks, because our podcasters ponder the joys of public restrooms in this episode. Then, in the “Prime Picks” segment, they share their current TV faves – it may be something new, or a never-watched oldie. The snacky snack they chose for this taste test was sweet Jalapeno beef jerky. Perfect after a traumatic experience in a public bathroom!
Fernando and Jamie talk about the golden age of Saturday morning cartoons and afterschool kids’ shows. Then they single out a goateed cartoon character for another rousing debate of Talent or No Talent. Rounding out the episode is a sampling of an exotic snack from the Philippines.
Who will be accused next? Who indeed? Fern and Jamie offer their fake predictions. Next, it’s a battle of fictional characters – Tony the Tiger vs Foghorn Leghorn. Followed with a taste test of another intriguing Kit Kat - wasabi flavor.
Sprinkle us on a pizza and enjoy all our cheesy goodness! Fave childhood pizza parlors, trends, pet peeves, and more. And what’s a tasty chaser after pizza? Samples of brandy-filled chocolate, of course!
