  • Flame On :: Episode 251 :: A Rainbow Wave of Gambit Goodness

    Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture.

    It’s always a risky gambit when it comes to picking the best pop culture to chat about, but the boys of Flame ON! are back to bring you their picks of things you should pay attention to during these fall months! Checkmate!

    It’s November, everyone and while it may have felt like 14 years have passed since March 2020, we’re here to let you know that it has in fact been 84 years since March! OK, well maybe it hasn’t been that long, but there has been so much going on and we’re ready to share some pop culture with you. Before we dive into their favorites for this month, we discuss the election and congratulate President-Elect Biden and chat about the closure of the iconic Parliament House (along with Hamburger Mary’s Chicago and the Atlanta Eagle). From there, we discuss The Queen’s Gambit from Netflix (while making some really bad Gambit/Rogue/X-Men jokes), Owl House on Disney+, and the second season of The Mandalorian. We also dive into how the internet has seemingly turned on Baby Yoda in the wake of Egg-Gate! To close out the show we share our choices for what is giving us life in the 1-UPs segment!

  • Nerdy Show :: David Byrne Shares True Stories From “True Stories”

    The Nerdy Show Network’s flagship podcast is a polymath polymorph gestalt entity of all known geek knowledge.

    In this archival interview from 2018, Cap speaks with Talking Heads’ David Byrne about the Criterion Collection re-release of his 1986 film, True Stories and the first ever edition of that film’s complete soundtrack. The film was Byrne’s directorial debut and as it plainly puts it right at the start is “about a bunch of people in Virgil, Texas.”

    The film is part zany, slice of life comedy, part anthropological study – processed through the music of Talking Heads and projected through a loving, art house lens. Cap and Byrne discuss how this remarkable portrait of 80s America came together and other unexpected art. (more…)
