Episode 180: Rise

Episode 180 is about various things “rising” and loosely follows the story of an army of robots that rise up and attempt to take down the human race.  Brent and Rob also record this episode in a studio building frequented by the likes of Beyonce, Puff Daddy, and Robin Thicke, so an LMH thanks and salute to those guys for breaking things in for the Chiki Chiki Boyz.  Full track listing below.

  1. GabeCube would have been a good studio Gabe name.

  2. Oh schnip, a Double Dragon reunion! Looks like the boys will be cleaning out the streets tonight on my ipod! Slurpee goooood! -Slick Vic

  3. Are you guys going to do a best of/year in review for October?

    1. One of my favorite things to look forward to in October!!! It would be awesome to round up all the best moments of the year too, like in "Final Podcast In Review".

  4. Oh man, the Switch's setlist killed it this episode. One of the best commutes to work I've had all summer. And I totally agree: Genesis music is a summer thing.

    Also, I've known for a long time that my preferred conversation stance is standing shoulder-to-shoulder with someone, facing the same stuff and discussing outward in a kind of united camaraderie -- but I hadn't thought about the possible roots it has in co-op video gaming until you guys made the connection. Really interesting!

  5. lol brent tried making the f-zero joke about mute city like 3 times and rob wasnt getting it. Always look forward to new episodes guys!
