BaconBit: The Listener Speaks!

September 1, 2017

The Reverse Listener sent out a survey with some of our biggest debate topics and arguments, and he finally let us see the results. So we’re going to talk about who you, the listener, think would survive the zombie apocalypse, who is the best Disney princess, who should have won the Hopper vs. Prince John battle and more!

Press play and see what we had to say about what you had to say!


Episode 121: Time After Time Travel

August 28, 2017

Great Scott! Baconsale is discussing time travel with our good friend Emily! We've each come to the table with some of our favorite time-traveling movies and TV shows and we try to put each of them into one of three categories: fixed, dynamic and multiverse. The discussion starts out a little science-y, and then it gets pretty geeky, but we do our best to be excellent to each other and we hope you enjoy it!

Isn't it about time that you pressed play?


Episode 120: Millennial-Approved Dating Etiquette

August 21, 2017

After Baconsale's last dating etiquette show, our friend Paige asked to come on the show in order to give a fresh, female, millennial perspective on courtship in the modern world. So here she is! And she brought along her friend Jordyn (and Courtney and Amelia) to discuss how dates have changed since Joel and Jacob were last in the game, as well as some tips for Kent to help him improve his game and not get murder-kidnapped.

So, whether you're a man, a woman or "Bent Bunn" himself, press play and enjoy our latest episode!


Episode 119: Farmed & Dangerous

August 14, 2017

Old McBaconsale had a podcast. E-I-E-I-O! And on this show, they have some guests! E-I-E-I-O! With a Lara here and a Jacob there. Here a Kent, there a Joel, and a silent Erin. Old McBaconsale had a podcast. E-I-E-I-O! This week we're hanging out with the ladies from the Life on the Rocks, Please podcast and Joel and Kent compete in a quiz all about farming and farm animals. If you think the premise sounds strange, you should listen to the actual episode!

Quit horsing around and press play!


Episode 118: Phantom vs. Les Mis

August 7, 2017

Think of us. Think of us fondly as we debate plays. We've brought along our special guest, Brittney, to pit The Phantom of the Opera against Les Misérables. At the end of the day/episode we'll declare which musical is best by discussing such categories as best characters, catchiest song and greatest (biggest?) legacy. Joel goes full theatre geek, Kent becomes everyone's favorite mutant uncle and all we ask of you is to listen to the music of the night and to play along.

Who are we? Who are we? We're Baconsaaaaaaaaaaale!


Episode 117: Ranking Non-Disney Animated (Tiergully: The Last Rankforest)

July 31, 2017

Somewhere out there, beneath the pale moonlight, someone's ranking movies and tiering them tonight. And in this episode, Baconsale is discussing the animated features that didn't come from Disney. These are films from Don Bluth Productions, DreamWorks Animation, Illumination Entertainment, 20th Century Fox, Sony and more. Joel can't stop singing, Kent can't stop making out during boring movies and Jacob puts the whole show in alphabetical order.

Press play and see if we think everything is awesome!


Episode 116: Best Westerns

July 24, 2017

Well, howdy there, pardner! Baconsale is ready to rustle up a discussion about some of our favorite Western movies. However, Kent and Joel aren't as well-versed in the world of cowboys, Indians, sheriffs, settlers, gamblers, bandits and bandanas (much to Jacob's delight), so they're also going to discuss the gaps in their knowledge and talk about the iconic Westerns they haven't seen.

So get your John Wayne impersonation ready and saddle up your horses. It's time to listen to the latest episode of Baconsale!


BaconBit: Dunkirk Review

July 21, 2017

Oh. Apparently Christopher Nolan directed another film, it seems? I guess we'll review it. Seriously, though, Kent has been waiting to review this movie since it was first announced two years ago. He's been so excited, he legally changed his name to "Kent Dunkirk." But will Nolan's latest project live up to his high expectations? And if Joel's opinion differs, will Kent murder him on the spot?

Press play and find out! The first 16 minutes are spoiler-free!


Episode 115: Cable, IMAX, Erase - The Revenge

July 17, 2017

Picking favorite movies is like picking favorite children for Baconsale, which is why we're playing another round of Cable, IMAX, Erase. In case you didn't hear the first episode, Jacob will present three movies and Kent and Joel will have to decide which movie they'll watch on repeat on TV, which movie they'll see once on the big screen and which one they'll delete from history. It basically turns into Joel and Kent torturing each other (SPOILER ALERT: Kent does eventually erase Batman v. Superman).

Hurry and press play because we may have ticked off John Wick, so this could be our last episode…


Episode 114: Spidey vs Spidey vs Spidey

July 10, 2017

Now that three different actors have played Spider-Man in the last 15 years, it's time for Baconsale to discuss who is the most amazing: Tom Holland, Andrew Garfield or Tobey Maguire (a.k.a. Jerry Maguire). We'll debate who portrayed Peter Parker properly, which franchise featured the most fearsome foe and what movie moment made us the most misty-eyed.

Now that we've got all of that alliteration out of our system, press play and enjoy this episode!
