The Toy Department – Episode 6

In Episode 6, Derek Madden and Matt Kolsky open with a brief discussion of football’s move to Los Angeles, before transitioning into a discussion of the life of the great David Bowie (6:30). Then transition into a long movie talk based around today’s announcement of Oscar nominations (14:45) that addresses the lack of diversity in nominees, among other things. Then it’s back to sports (32:30) for a discussion of the Bengals’ meltdown (or was it a meltdown??) at the end of their playoff loss to Pittsburgh and other postseason football issues. Then a minute or two on Sean Penn’s El Chapo interview ties things up at the end.

The Toy Department – Episode 4

In Episode 4 of The Toy Department, Derek Madden and Matt Kolsky dive back into Star Wars – this time actually having seen the newest installment in the franchise, thereby producing a more substantive conversation 🙂 Then things get a little dark when they move into the not-so-toy department topic of the fact that R. Kelly continues to have a career despite rampant allegations of sexual misconduct (18:05) which leads to some talk about celebrity criminals in general, but levity returns (around 31:45) with a discussion of Steve Harvey’s amazing Miss Universe Pageant gaffe. Then there’s a little bit of general football discussion (41:45) before Madden commits to the project of getting Kolsky committed to watching Premier League soccer (46:05)… Then it’s Happy Holidays and goodbye til next week (or is it next year??)!!

The Toy Department – Episode 1

In Episode 1 of The Toy Department, Derek Madden and Matt Kolsky begin by delving into one of the great debates of the last month or so on the internet: is a hot dog a sandwich?? Then there’s some movie talk (around 17:00), mostly about the new film Creed, then a turn into TV (around 22:45) and after a quick Star Wars detour it’s on to music!(around 37:30)! After a bit of discussion surrounding a potential Guns-N-Roses reunion, and band reunions in general, there’s a strong finish with some sports talk – specifically about the apparent demise of cherished athletic superstars (starting around 49:30). And by the way, make sure you stick around ’til the end for some outtake action…
