Episode 51: The Trope-a-Dope

Saturday, February 17th, 2018

Alright, 'Combies! After our recent milestone (see the last episode), we decided to take a bit easy for this episode and moved our natural analysis towards something a bit broader. Looking over the broad spectrum of fictional media, for this episode, we're looking at tropes. That's right, tropes; cliches and concepts that we've seen pop up in book after book, movie after movie, etc. There's a lot of them out there, so ya' boys decided to address the ones that we like and the ones that we loathe. Also, get ready to learn some interesting stuff about our esteemed host. It's a hoot this time around, so come on down and let's get into it!

 And don't forget, 'Combies, you can also find The Honeycomb Hideout on iTunes for the Apple-users in our audience!

For references to what we discuss this episode: Super Saiyan Satan, Gwendoline Christie stands above her castmates, The OC: Mmmm whatcha say, and of course, Feels Goodman:D

Episode 49 Part 1: Keep your hands to yourself!

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

Alright, 'Combies! Your boys have returned with some things to say. There's some heavy stuff going on out in the world and we're discussing it. We've got a lot of news lately about sexual harassment and assault of both men and women in show business going on and, while it's been happening for a long time, it's not being kept so quiet anymore. People are speaking out and against some surprising names. And the fun doesn't stop there! There's also been another kind of assault but this one is on a piece of America's soul; an attack on the internet. There's an attempt to repeal Net Neutraility and you can bet we have a lot to say about that too. So come on down as your boys get REAL deep with it this time around. But that's not all... It is a two-parter, afrer all.  So get ready for the next one later on this week!
