Black Ops Episode 19 – Whoa: Keanu Reeves in Theory and Practice [CLIP]

In a discussion recorded back in November, now exclusive to our Patreon supporters, we try to decide in real-time if Terminator: Dark Fate warrants being covered on Podcasta la Vista, Baby! or not.

We talk a bit about our coming post-Arnold future and drop a couple hints at a replacement series. And we mention at least one shelved podcast series idea that we decided to not do.

Is it time for Star Wars, among other franchises, to go away for a while? We talk a bit how major media companies keep trying to recreate the success of lightning-in-a-bottle books and movies to diminishing results.

Podcasta la Vista, Baby! Episode 3 – Hercules in New York

hercules-in-new-york

“It’s tremendous! It’s stupendous!! It’s FUN!!!”*

We’re back with a dive into a mythic time — in more ways than one — with Ask an Atheist‘s Sam Mulvey to test our endurance against the herculean labor of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s first starring role, in 1969’s Hercules in New York!

Bored of his idyllic life on Mount Olympus, Greek demigod Hercules provokes his father Zeus into sending him to modern day Earth. There, he beats up longshoremen and bullies college athletes. He eventually becomes a successful professional wrestler, and battles both the machinations of the gods and gangsters alike.

Podcasta la Vista, Baby! goes Bimonthly in May!

smile

Starting in April, our spin-off show, Podcasta la Vista, Baby! will go from a quarterly celebration of the cinematic legend of Arnold Schwarzenegger to a meaty, double-barrelled bimonthly experience!

That means every year, you will get 50% more muscles, 50% more explosions, and 50% more absurd macho bullshit, starting with Arnie’s first starring role in Hercules in New York in May!

How does this affect our main program, Radio vs. the Martians!, you might ask? Our panel episodes will move to a bimonthly basis as well, giving us even more time to write, schedule and gorge ourselves on delicious (and not-so-delicious) popular culture to make our panel episodes even better and more ambitious than ever!

But fret not, loyal listener! We will still have monthly installments of our Fun Size episodes to pick up the slack and keep you abreast of all of our non-Arnold related tirades and fan gushing!

Great things are on the way, folks!
