    Syndicated - Orange is the New Black 

    You've been sentenced to listen to yet another episode of Syndicated, the TV podcast for the lapsed viewer here on Crosstawk.  In this episode, Neal, Nathan and Andy sit down and chat about the first season of Orange is the New Black, the critically acclaimed dramedy from Weeds creator Jenji Kohan.

    After you're done listening to the episode, why not send us an email at syndicatedpodcast@gmail.com or maybe tweet at us @SyndicatedPod?  We'd love to hear from you!  

    And don't forget that Syndicated now has a dedicated RSS feed for those of you who like that kind of thing. You can subscribe using the link above or by searching for Syndicated in iTunes or whatever else you use to listen to podcasts with.  I recommend Downcast for iOS, personally.

    Box Office Poison: Episode 109

    Hi, folks, and welcome back to another episode of BOP! This time, Stan, Mike and Jon couldn’t make it, so we enlisted our good buddy and fellow Crosstawk host, Zach Miller, to join us. Zach’s an expert on all things dino, which is appropriate, because we kick the show off with a big discussion on Jurassic World before getting into films like Inside Out, Me & Earl & The Dying Girl and Dope.

    Then, in the second segment, Jonny and Karl discuss our pick for Movie of the Month: Bonnie and Clyde. Was the 1967 counterculture film a hit with us, or did we leave it bleeding out on the highway? You’ll have to listen in to find out! 

    Next episode will feature Post Office Poison, so please send your comments, questions and concerns to us via email (crosstawk@gmail.com), Twitter (@crosstawk) or in the comments section on the site. Thanks for listening - we’ll see you in two weeks!

    A Thousand Words - Episode 8: The Swing

    After a much-needed vacation, the gang is back with a painting so famous, you might actually recognize it! Stan didn't, but what he doesn't know could fill all the books. This week's target is The Swing by actual 18th century artist, Jean- Honoré Fragonard.

    In this episode the crew is so scandalized by the subject matter, they suggest an alternate way to promote abstinence. And, in what is turning out to be a recurring bit, cast the painting with just the right actors.

    Box Office Poison: Episode 107

    Hello everyone, and welcome to a very speical episode of Box Office Poison, recorded during Cross-Con 2015 in Nashville, TN. The guys all got together and recorded this side by side, giving you super-fresh reviews of Tomorrowland, Mad Max: Fury Road and more before getting into some special-edition listener mail concerning the nature of being offended, gut-busting laughter and movie trailers. And to keep this monster under two hours, there's even a lightning-quick review of the Movie of the Month, The Good the Bad the Weird.

    Be sure to listen in next month when the group discusses Bonnie & Clyde. And if you have any comments, questions or concerns for BOP, please let us know via email (crosstawk@gmail.com), Twitter (@crosstawk) and in the comments section on the website.

    Thanks for listening!

    A Thousand Words - Episode 7: Friday Night Drama

    As part of the CrossCon deluge, we bring to you this special episode of A Thousand Words. Broken in two parts, this is a recording of the live broadcast of A Thousand Words on Jessica's radio show Friday Night Drama featured on WRFN (http://www.radiofreenashville.org/).

    In the first part, the crew discuss the origin of A Thousand Words, their favorite artists, and personal history with art. But mostly, they just goof around.

    In part 2, they get into the meat and potatoes by discussing Annie Leibovitz's Where Wonderland is Your Destiny which features Beyonce Knowles, Oliver Platt, and Lyle Lovett. Along the way, they discuss computer repair, Brazilian waxes, and heroine addiction throughout history.

    We're taking a break from our standard format to cover a single episode; the May 17, 2015 series finale of Mad Men: "Person to Person".

    Andy, Luke, and Nathan are joined by Kelly to talk about our thoughts, theories, and reactions to the episode, the final episode of one of our favorite shows of all time.

    Rough Draught: Beyond the Pale Ale

     

    We're coming right up on Memorial Day, which means it's time for the crew of Box Office Poison to meet up for our annual "Cross Con," in which we drink, we eat and we generally go a little nuts while keeping the mic on for your listening pleasure. And to continue last year's tradition, we've held the episode of Rough Draught for a full year, now debuting it just before we get together and record the next episode.
    This time, we grabbed mostly beers brewed in the Midwest, which was appropriate, since we were all in Chicago to enjoy the City of Broad Shoulders. This included:
    - 5 Rabbit Huitzi
    - Solemn Oath Wreckage Master
    - Deschutes Class of '88
    - Lagunitas Sucks (Brown Shugga Replacement Ale)
    - Revolution Deep Woods Series: Straight Jacket Barleywine
    Have a question for us to answer on the next episode of Rough Draught? Let us know via email (crosstawk@gmail.com), Twitter (@crosstawk) or in the comments section on the site. After all, you'll only have to wait a year!
    Thanks for listening!

    Don't miss this episode, or you'll answer to the KGB.
