Episode 36: IT’S A WORK OF FICTION! or The Seinfeldian Melee

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

Alright, 'Combies! We're about to do something a little bit different. This time... it's a show about nothing. The boys are just hanging out and shooting the shit without any real aim or topic. Yeah, you'll see how long that lasts! They talk about the current "Captain America/Hydra" conspiracy, social conventions and more shit we maybe shouldn't talk about but are really going to talk a lot about. This is a show you'll not want to miss, 'Combies, because this is the show where we finally earn the monnicker of "Howard Stern for Geeks". So come on down and watch the magic! The awkward and periodically dark magic.

And as usual, for context...
DBZA - Start at 6:17Scanners = Mind Blown! and, after the implied context, The Engineer and his feet!

As always, enjoy and make sure the kiddies are out of the room. This is an 18+ podcast.  ;)

Episode 34: Incivility from the Dawn of Justice

Saturday, May 7th, 2016

The Hideout's getting shaken up this week, 'Combies! Paul and Drew from episode 33 have officially been inducted into the Honeycomb Hideout. Let's see how quickly they regret the experience! This time around, Joe, Mark, Paul and Drew are diving head first into the Dawn of Justice, Hardcore Henry and whatever other insanity that comes about (and you know there will be many). Beware, listeners, there be a great many spoilers in this episode so if you haven't seen either Hardcore Henry or Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, you may want to hold off on listening to this one until you have seen them. So come on down and trip out with you boys!

And of course, what would an episode of the Hideout with Mark be without an image barrage? And remember, they're sequenced in order so you can follow along as we suffer through them.

Episode 29: ACTUAL Shapes and Sizes

Monday, August 17th, 2015

Alright, 'Combies! After a bit of a hiatus and a lot of kitbashing, we're back to discuss yet another controversial topic: the female anatomy and how it's conveyed in the media! But to cover our bases, we actually have a woman on the show to help rein us in a bit (if that's possible). Artist Katie Hodges joins Joe, Mark and Nik in the Hideout to talk about this very controversial and yet extremely important issue in regards to art and media. So come on down and see where this particular rabbit hole leads!

And for those playing the home game, to follow along with the discussion, here are the relevant articles in the order they are discussed:
