Episode 38 - How the Gibbs Stole Christmas

The Gibbs brothers are back , and they know what you've thinking. They also know when you're sleeping and when you're awake, but that's a whole different story. "Duncan and Malcolm! Why isn't there more Christmas content in January?" The brothers have you covered thanks to a ticking time bomb and cloning experiment gone wrong.

Items this week: the amnesiac crystal ball, and the universal snow globe.

Episode 36 - Beerly Beloved

We were going to use the Hans Gruber quote about Alexander weeping for there were no more worlds to conquer. But when we actually looked it up, it turns out the original quote is from Plutarch, and Alexander wept because there were infinite worlds and he hadn't even conquered one. We couldn't decide which one was more fitting, so now you get this much worse explanation.

Items this week: the tipsy glass, the chr - oh no - graph, and the pearl of procrastination.

Episode 35 - Redux

Xenia is the the Greek concept of hospitality. It was both a moral contract for both hosts and guests that promised protection and rights, as well as an actual ritual involving the exchange of gifts and favors followed by a communal meal. However, both Duncan and Malcolm prefer Xena: Warrior Princess.

Items this week: the whiteboard of deathstiny, the plague doctor's mask, and the sharpie eraser.

Episode 32 - Do Not Feed the Animals

Episode 30 - Sob Stories

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for podcast content, I can tell you I don't have ideas. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, podcast naming skills I have acquired over a very long career. Podcast naming skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my podcast go unnamed now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will name the shit out of your podcast. (Other titles: Cry Like a Host, Bawlers, Watch It and Weep, Prepare to Cry, Good Mourning, and Duncan and Malcolm Awesome Show, Great Sob! are just off the top of my head.)

Episode 29 - Game Boys Advanced

We know what your question is. "How long were you guys sitting on that episode title?" To which, Wii'd like to plead the fifth. We really Nintendon't want to talk about it. The answer is actually pretty Famicomplicated... Someone please put us out of our misery.

Episode 27 - Tempest in a Teacup

A wise scholar once said, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it." That same scholar also thought you could reverse the miles off of an odometer though. You know, I'm starting to think my John Hughes doomsday cult is never going to take off...

Episode 23 - Ahoy!

The reports of our deaths have been greatly exaggerated. Well, okay, exaggerated might not be the best word...

Welcome back to Appraised by Media where thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work.

Episode 22 - More Weight

Episode 20 - I Know Why The Caged Bird Goofs

Duncan and Malcolm ain't seen the sunshine since they don't know when. This week sees the duo stuck in Gideon Gadzooks' Gulag on New Corsica island. Maybe it's all the time spent in solitary, slow motion confinement - or maybe they finally lost it - but time keeps dragging on.
