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!!

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…
