Today’s Filmographers episode is a mini episode, a retrospective look back at what Katie and Lenny have watched so far, plus a very fun game! They’ll be back next month with another actor’s filmography, but until then enjoy this mini episode!
Eric McAdams may not know much about architecture, but he knows a waste of time and effort when he see one. This week on Big Time Whoopsies, Eric takes architecture student (and returning guest) Maggie on a journey to France to see an architectural marvel… and a gigantic waste of the French military’s resources.
I dare you to find a weirder episode of a podcast than this one. Tom talks about the sexual politics of video games while Liam let’s his friend host a gameshow about pornography called Cumming Soon. Don’t worry, it’s fun. And only a little bit gross.
Thanks again for sticking with us, sorry about taking the week off but we needed it.
Music in this episode is Spanish Flea by Herb Alpert.

We’re back with news, fish men and pleads for you to call your congressman to keep the net neutral. Dear god please contact your representatives. For the love of the internet PLEASE keep the net neutral. We thank you and ones and zeros thank you.
It’s been a long week for us. We recorded this a day after our gas got shut off. Consider this our mental health week episode. Take care of yourself this week.
The crypt extends deeper than you could have possibly imagined, and sounds of Carrie fade as you continue forward. The speech of a hundred different podcasts echo hollow off the walls, resonating in coffin and bone. It overwhelms you. The auditory assault drives you to panic, and you scrabble forward, desperately. Right as your head feels like it will crumple under the volume, the conversations cease. The empty darkness – once a source of terror – now comforts you. And then, you hear a voice – not outside, not from the black maw that just blasted you, but from within your own mind. It says, “would you like some ice cream, doc?”
This podcast uses the ending theme from Creepshow II, and De Natura No. 1, De Natura No. 2, The Awakening of Jacob, and It’s All Forgotten Now (Ray Noble & Al Bowlly) from The Shining.
Big Time Whoopsies is back and this week Eric is bringing magic, intrigue, and crime to his friend Anna Mei. It’s the Affair of the Diamond Necklace, a chapter of French history that sounds like it’s full of scintillating, sophisticated drama but is really just a story about a rich guy being stupid, which is what most stories seem to be about, in the end.
PS: It’s pronounced “Geeg.” The second G is kinda soft, in that weird French way.
DISCLAIMER: Due to tiredness and holiday exhaustion, we mistakenly thought this was our 69th episode. Upon further reflection, it is our 68th. We joke about it and didn’t realize until later. Oh well!
We totally fucked up. I’ll be the first to admit it. We’re better than this and we’re sorry. Today, on the 69th episode of Media Majors, we forget to talk about anything horny. I know, I know. That’s not the podcast you signed up for and that’s not the podcast that we want to put it out, but it’s where we are. Next week, we will rectify this tragic error, but today we conclude our look at ratings. Liam talks about the glory days of Pre Code Hollywood while Tom concludes his two parter about the ESRB.

It’s another week of hollywood sexual harassment, head scratching small news and good old fashion flat earther bashing on this here episode of Sunday Morning Hangover Cure. Why don’t you let us gab away your turkey related woes as we laugh away the news of the holiday week.
For today’s wholesome and hearty Media Majors, take a big bowl mix in one part corporate greed with two parts political intrusiveness, set to a boil and you’ve got two piping hot stories about rating systems! Liam vents about the Nielsen System and how it’s destroying everything good in television while Tom talks about the origins of the ESRB, the group that determines video game ratings.
