Episode 103 - Sitcom Comedy

It’s a sad week for series finales and Chad is living in his feelings. Both YOU’RE THE WORST and CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND are leaving the airwaves for good. Meanwhile, JORDAN PEELE brings his new TWILIGHT ZONE to CBS ALL ACCESS and it’s passable but a slog. Then, Chad covers ONE DAY AT A TIME possibly getting revived on another streaming network; the DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE saving Netflix from the Oscars; and the WRITERS GUILD OF AMERICA’s fight against their agents.

Episode 102 - The Apple Cartel

Podcasting never felt so good. Except for all the sniffles. Chad is stung up by spring allergies but not even a stuffy nose can stop him. Except when it hinders his sleep. Then he's stopped. This week's topics include the TONIGHT SHOW shooting an entire episode with the Samsung Galaxy S10+; YOUTUBE exiting the premium TV game; and a lengthy discussion about APPLE's foray into subscription streaming, news and gaming services. Also, neti pots don't work. I hate them.

Episode 101 - One Cancellation at a Time

Fresh off of finally doing some work on a set, Chad takes to the mic to discuss topics no one cares about. These include HULU's PEN15 and SHRILL -- two obscenely funny shows about women working their way to power. One is about two 30 year olds playing teenage versions of themselves while the other is about a fat female writer struggling to fit in to a skinny world. Also on the docket: GOOGLE FIBER bowing out of a city it started in; LILY SINGH getting a late night show on NBC; SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE being accused of stealing two sketches; NETFLIX cancelling the greatest show on the platform -- ONE DAY AT A TIME -- and the reason behind all of the recent cancellations of shows with three seasons. Boy, is it a doozy.
