Tier on! If you were suddenly given a superpower, what would you do with it? In this episode, Baconsale is tiering some of the most famous superpowers from movies, TV and comic books. And as we rank such powers as teleportation, flight, shape-shifting and super breath, we learn that Joel is a scaredy cat, and Kent would turn into a supervillain even with a tier 3 ability.
Feel that? That's us using telekinesis to get you to press that play button.

Let's get down to business! It's time for Baconsale to talk about (and sing about) Disney music. For this episode, we have created a list of categories such as best villain song, most irritating song, saddest song and song that is better than the movie. After some reflection, Kent and Joel must go the distance and pick a winner for each one. Meanwhile, Jacob must be feeling the love tonight because he is very generous with his point giving.
Want to play along? Be our guest! Press play and become part of our world. However, if we don't pick the Disney song you would have picked, just let it go.

The war ain't over yet! After battling among themselves, Sam, Spencer and newly crowned Listener Adrienne are now ready to take on Joel and Kent. Jacob has created a quiz that will test the pop culture knowledge (and the patience) of everyone in the room, but there can only be one winner. And with Taco Bell gift cards on the line, the stakes have literally never been higher!

Okay, listener, it's time to crown the new Listener! We're celebrating our 150th episode by bringing on three highly competitive contestants (Sam, Adrienne & Spencer) and having them duke it out in a battle of trivial pop culture facts and random Baconsale trivia. Sam has held the title for the last year, but will he be able to survive 10 rounds of questions created by Jacob, the Reverse Listener (praise shim!), Joel and Kent?
Listen and play along as we discuss Star Wars, band names, My Little Pony, death and out-of-context quotes on our 3rd anniversary episode of Baconsale!

We've given Kate Beckinsale (Bacon number of 2) a lot of love on our show, but now it's time for us to give our podcast's other namesake, Kevin Bacon, time to shine. Kent and Joel (Bacon number of 3) are each going to talk about their least favorite Kevin Bacon movies. Then they're going to combine their powers and give you a list of Baconsale-approved Bacon films. Plus, as an added bonus, we even play a game of Baconsale live on this episode.

Video game adaptations don't have a good track record, but can this latest Tomb Raider film break the stereotype? Kent and Joel saw it, and they're ready to give their review.

Would you like fries with that? We don't. At least, not for a while, because for this episode we have eaten crinkle-cut, curly, shoestring and waffle fries from 22 different fast food restaurants, including McDonald's, In-N-Out Burger, Arby's and Chick-fil-A. Then we created a French fry matrix to scientifically compare each deep-fried & salted potato side, and are now ready to present to you our official Baconsale rankings.
Press play to hear how Jacob tried to sabotage our scoring, what kind of gross comparisons Kent can come up with for the fries he doesn't like, and Joel's history lesson on who invented fry sauce.

What? Two BaconBit episodes in one week? We must love you, listener. OR...Kent and Joel really, really wanted to talk about the new A Wrinkle in Time movie. But why? Did they feel like it was a beautiful adaptation of a beloved novel finally brought to the silver screen? Or did they find this film to be a huge mess of color, CGI and close-ups that is doomed to fail? Only Giant Space Oprah knows for sure.
