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 100 - Let's Rethink That

Chad returns to the futon for this: a very special episode of The Constitutionals EPISODE 100! Yes. There are 100 of these things — each worse than the last. But Chad’s trying really hard, he promises. Before he gets to the topics, our host talks about a sudden death in his friend circle. Then he talks about COMEDY CENTRAL’s new YouTube channel; ANNAPURNA PICTURES losing money on every movie it put out in 2018 except for one; the reselling of digital music; SPOTIFY’s big issue with royalty increases and the streamer’s antitrust case in the EU against APPLE.

Episode 98 - Periods R Good

As Dr. Dre once rapped, Chad has "been in the lab with a pen and a pad!" Except everything said on this show is completely made up! Not the news parts, those are real. Chad skims over the OSCARS and mostly craps on "Green Book;" DESUS & MERO's new Showtime show (also titled "Desus & Mero" like their Viceland show); high priced APPLE recognizing its high prices; and working as a mom in the broadcast news!

Episode 90 - Thank You For Much

Chad begins 2019 by giving the gift of bonus episode of The Constitutionals (or regular episode if he was able to get the last one out on time. He covers so many topics like MICKEY MOUSE becoming part of the public domain; ROKU's streaming service sounding like APPLE's; and NETFLIX no longer selling subscriptions via iTUNES. Plus way more. Too much more? Yeah, that sounds right. Chad missed doing this show.
