The Toy Department – Episode 12

In Episode 12, Derek Madden and¬†Matt Kolsky talk Peak/Prestige TV straight-up for about 45 minutes. We could list all the damn shows they talk about, but there are no spoilers and that seems like an awful lot of listing to do, so probably best to just dive in and listen to the whole thing ūüôā

In Episode 11, Derek Madden and¬†Matt Kolsky¬†get right into the thick of things with a Kanye West deep dive… All jokes aside, there’s a lot to get into with¬†Mr. West – from his music to his internet behavior, he is nothing if not interest-worthy!

The Toy Department – Episode 10

In Episode 10, Derek Madden and¬†Matt Kolsky start with¬†a quick post-Super Bowl debrief –¬†did Kolsky survive? How did his dumplings turn out? (that’s a literal question) Then it’s the Great Coldplay Debate (9:00) as¬†the gentlemen stake out their positions and duke it out. After probably too much of that (though not as much as existed on the¬†original recording) the topic shifts to¬†movie talk with a breakdown of the Oscar-nominated Spotlight (33:50),¬†followed by a brief¬†discussion of the Grammy’s and¬†other assorted music stuff¬†(42:00). Finally, a strong close¬†where a purported tease to next week turns into a short conversation about JJ Redick’s new podcast (46:30).

The Toy Department – Episode 9

In Episode 9, Derek Madden and¬†Matt Kolsky open with a little breakdown of the media madness surrounding the Super Bowl – mostly because Kolsky is stranded in a sea of Super Shenanigans… Then it’s a discussion of the great new TV series The People vs. OJ Simpson, and the success of FX¬†in general (5:30) plus a¬†minute or two about another new FX show, Zach Galifianakis’ Baskets. Of course today’s pod also includes a long Super Bowl Prop Bets segment (25:00) – you’re covered if you want to bet on earthquakes or whether Peyton Manning retires immediately after the game. Make sure you listen for your homework assignment(s) and stay tuned for the exciting tease ahead to next week’s episode!!
