BaconBit: And the 2022 Oscar Winners Are…

BaconBit: And the 2022 Oscar Winners Are…

March 31, 2022
The Academy Awards have been hit hard with low ratings lately, which has been quite a blow to Hollywood’s ego. However, this year’s Oscars clapped back and scored the second-lowest viewership ever! They think they deserve a pat on the back (or face), but we’re going to critique how the ceremony went, even when things went out of whack. Joel, Kent, and Zack are going to attack their predictions from the past and punch up this dry BaconBit with a little bit of humor and some smack talk. We’re going to strike every award category and announce each winner, along with the winner among Baconsale hosts, and the winner of our 94th Academy Award listener ballot bash.

Episode 345: The Song of Songs! (Tournament Finals)

March 28, 2022
Don’t Stop Believin’ that this Baconsale episode is going to be a Thriller, because we’re going to finish our quest to find the One song to rule them all. And while some of this music gives us Good Vibrations and makes us want to be a Dancing Queen, other tunes are barely Livin’ on a Prayer and will sink Like a Stone and take the Stairway to Heaven. What a Wonderful World it is, listener, because of the song submissions you gave us. We couldn’t have done this tournament With or Without You.

Episode 344: 2022 Oscar Predictions

Episode 344: 2022 Oscar Predictions

March 21, 2022
In order to salvage their continually plummeting ratings, the Academy Awards asked three quasi-famous hosts to help people care about the films that no one has seen and the ceremony no one is watching. Unfortunately, Joel, Kent & Zack were busy recording this episode, so the Oscars will have to settle for less. Nevertheless, we’re going to continue our tradition of making predictions for the Academy Award winners on this episode of Baconsale. Listen as Kent tries to not follow his heart, Joel scours the web to find answers, and Zack plays the odds in Vegas.

Everybody Wants to Rule the World, but Baconsale just wants to determine the best song in the world.

Episode 342: Cars

Episode 342: Cars

March 7, 2022
Listener, start your engines! We’re gearing up to talk about cars on this episode of Baconsale. Unfortunately, Kent & Joel know as much about cars as they do sports, but Zack is a motorhead, and we are joined by our automotive enthusiast friends, Adam & Rachel. We’ll each be picking answers for such categories as our first vehicles, the best car for a date, the one we’d buy if money were no object, and the vehicle we would want in a zombie apocalypse. It’s a humbling episode, especially as Joel and Kent are trying to understand horsepower, engine liters, and displacement, but we hope you enjoy the ride as much as we did.

BaconBit: The Batman Review

BaconBit: The Batman Review

March 4, 2022
Fear is a tool. And it seems that Matt Reeves is utilizing that tool as much as possible with his version of The Batman. But does this film lean too much into the dark & brooding tone? And will Baconsale ever see Robert Pattinson as the World’s Greatest Detective instead of just a sparkling vampire? Listen as we give our review of The Batman and deftly avoid spoilers for the first part of this BaconBit. However, once we descend into spoiler territory, watch out... because we are vengeance!

Episode 341: Holy Rogues Ranking, Batman!

February 28, 2022
It’s a wild night in Gotham City! Twenty-four of Batman’s most notorious foes are on the loose. And every time the Caped Crusader drops them off on the steps of Arkham Asylum, it’s up to the three guards (Joel, Kent & Zack) to decide which level of security each one of these villains needs for their holding cell. Listen as we do our best to keep Kent away from the clutches of Catwoman, try to stop Man-Bat from messing with Zack’s hair, and safely detain the Joker during Joel’s many lunch breaks.

Episode 340: Team JK vs. Sports

Episode 340: Team JK vs. Sports

February 21, 2022
For years, Kent and Joel have downplayed their knowledge of sports and sports-related trivia. But Zack is suspicious that they actually know more than they let on. Therefore, on this episode of Baconsale, Zack is going to quiz the other two on basic sports knowledge, but this time it’s going to be with Joel’s & Kent’s powers combined as Team JK. If they win, they get a sport trophy. However, if they lose, they’ll have to do a choreographed cheer on social media, so the stakes have never been higher.

BaconBit: The Book of Boba Fett Review

BaconBit: The Book of Boba Fett Review

February 18, 2022
Some of us at Baconsale haven’t really understood the hype behind the character Boba Fett since he was knocked into the Sarlacc pit by a blind guy with a stick, but will this new Disney Plus series change our minds? Joel, Kent, and Zack have watched all seven episodes and they’re ready to review it for you on this BaconBit. If you haven’t watched it yet, don’t worry, the first part is spoiler free. After a clear warning, we’ll dive into all sorts of spoilers as well as other Star Wars lore like the books and The Clone Wars series.

Episode 339: When a Man STILL Loves Love Songs

February 14, 2022
Baconsale would do anything for love, it seems, because we’re back for a third round of love songs! You’d think that by this point we’d be scraping the bottom of the romantic music barrel, but even we were surprised to discover how many amazing tunes we still hadn’t talked about. Listen as we pick answers for categories such as Most Emotional, How You Feel After That First Kiss, Best Power Ballad, and Favorite Foreign Language Love Song. There is so much love in the room on this episode…that is, until Kent brings the room down with his hipster picks. Nevertheless, you should still check out our playlist at Baconsale.com.
