EPIC PIEcast

  1. EPIC PIEcast :: Episode 59 :: Knockout

    It’s EPIC PIEcast! Party with Nelson Lugo and Schaffer the Darklord as they dust off every corner of pop culture for discussion, debate, and deconstruction with all the snark and witty banter that they can muster.

    This month, EPIC PIECAST stages a comeback though we ask that you please not describe it as such. Tower of power NELSON LUGO details his progress as a padawan DJ before maniac psycho SCHAFFER THE DARKLORD reports on his 9th trip to SXSW and the future of nerdcore hip-hop. Will Lugo cancel a guest if they are outed as a garbage person? Will Schaffer gamble the reveal of his most embarrassing work on Wrestlemania predictions? Will the jammy go “blaw?” We knock out answers to these questions and take this itty-bitty world by storm in this month’s episode. (more…)

  2. EPIC PIEcast :: Episode 58 :: Wakanda Forver

    It’s EPIC PIEcast! Party with Nelson Lugo and Schaffer the Darklord as they dust off every corner of pop culture for discussion, debate, and deconstruction with all the snark and witty banter that they can muster.

    What did we do on our January vacation? Well! Nelson Lugo spent January expanding his horizons and exploring Denmark, while Schaffer the Darklord attended a WWE show and thought about death. Fun! But now that we’re back to the same ol’ nerd podcast game, the boys leap claws-first into Wakanda and share their thoughts just minutes following a screening of Black Panther.

    How did Lugo find utopia in a convenience store chain? How did Schaffer get tricked into playing an RPG? How long do we have to wait for a Nakia spin-off film? Shout these questions into the abyss and brace thyself for the cold silence that responds in this month’s episode. (more…)

  3. EPIC PIEcast :: Episode 57 :: The Good, the Bad and the Ugh

    It’s EPIC PIEcast! Party with Nelson Lugo and Schaffer the Darklord as they dust off every corner of pop culture for discussion, debate, and deconstruction with all the snark and witty banter that they can muster.

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, but for real, IT WAS THE WORST OF TIMES. This month on the EPIC PIEcast, Lugo and Schaffer look back on 2017 – a year that roared in like a lion and blorted out like a Porg – as they unpack and then furiously re-pack the year’s highs and lows before stuffing them deep into the rental storage units of their minds forever. From hurricanes to lawsuits, the boys scavenge the debris field for silver linings in this month’s episode.

    Auld lang syne, listener. (more…)

    This month, the boys struggle with talking. SCHAFFER THE DARKLORD doesn’t want to talk because he’s hoarse from screaming into the abyss for weeks. NELSON LUGO can’t talk because [REDACTED]. As a solution for their compromised voices, the former airs a prerecorded segment in which he sits down with chiptune/indie rock troubadours Shael Riley and Ty Guenley to discuss and dissect their new collaborative album: Schaffer, Riley, and the Double Ice Backfire – Hold Person.

    Did Schaffer know what these songs were about when he was writing lyrics? Did Lugo really [REDACTED]? Is…that…the…Apple of Livid Silence?! These questions and more will be [REDACTED] in this month’s episode. (more…)

  5. EPIC PIEcast :: Episode 55 :: Uncut

    It’s EPIC PIEcast! Party with Nelson Lugo and Schaffer the Darklord as they dust off every corner of pop culture for discussion, debate, and deconstruction with all the snark and witty banter that they can muster.

    HELLO PARTY PEOPLES! [Lugo: we can’t open episode description like this.] Schaffer has decided to not lift a single solitary finger to edit this podcast in anyway shape or form to prove a point to Lugo. Hell, he’s not even going to edit these show notes. Lugo, on the other hand, doesn’t care at all except to tell you that Were back at it with another heapn helpn serving of PIEcast goodness. This moth we catch up with rap tour shenanigans, Red Room Fundraisers, and [Schaffer: we need a third thjng here]. How many lives does a video game Schaffer get? Is Lugo a flaming trash fire? [Schaffer: write a third dumb question here]. None of these will be answered with all the curmudgeonly snark two Middle Ages guys can muster. [Lugo: this draft is terrible, but I’m not fixin it so send it in if you want I don’t care.] (more…)

    It’s EPIC PIEcast! Party with Nelson Lugo and Schaffer the Darklord as they dust off every corner of pop culture for discussion, debate, and deconstruction with all the snark and witty banter that they can muster.

    Newly-minted wrestling superfan Schaffer the Darklord continues his campaign to pull co-host Nelson Lugo down into Suplex City! Thrill as Schaffer challenges the modern era WWE noob to make SummerSlam predictions based on superstars’ ring entrances alone. Later, Schaffer’s confidence in the entertainment value of this program plummets to new depths, inspiring the boys to conduct “market research” via on-air telephone calls to listeners (and non-listeners) for feedback.

    Is our baby ugly? Does this show need more murder? Hello? Is this thing on? These questions will all be interrupted by Self-Doubt’s entrance music. (more…)

    Absinthe aficionado and aspiring DJ, Nelson Lugo, reunites with Schaffer the Darklord to rant about recent controversies and speculate on a grim hypothetical scenario. Later, these angry a-holes are joined by comedy music duo Sam & Bill who perform live in Studio #6C and discuss their evolving methods for antagonizing audiences. What are Lugo’s feelings on the rubber chicken? Under what circumstances would Schaffer abandon his co-host? What bit made Sam & Bill’s performance at a NYC comedy club their last?

    Nobody asked these questions in this month’s episode. (more…)

  9. EPIC PIEcast :: Episode 51 :: Back From the Future

    It’s EPIC PIEcast! Party with Nelson Lugo and Schaffer the Darklord as they dust off every corner of pop culture for discussion, debate, and deconstruction with all the snark and witty banter that they can muster.

    In December 2016, EPIC PIEcast celebrated the release of its 50th episode by going on hiatus, while the show’s hosts embarked on an excellent adventure through time. Today, in April 2017, DOC EMMETT LUGO and MARTY McSCHAFFER have arrived at their time machine’s coordinates: FOUR MONTHS INTO THE FUTURE! Now the boys must scramble to catch up on a quarter year’s worth of pop culture news and horrifying political developments in this bewildering future world.

    Has Lugo’s enthusiasm for Batman been compromised? Is Schaffer marking out for professional wrestling? Have our heroes landed in the darkest timeline? These questions will be asked as our time-traveling tramps struggle to make sense of strange new realities in this month’s episode. (more…)

  10. EPIC PIEcast :: Episode 50 :: Worst of Times

    piecast reduxIt’s EPIC PIEcast! Party with Nelson Lugo and Schaffer the Darklord as they dust off every corner of pop culture for discussion, debate, and deconstruction with all the snark and witty banter that they can muster.

    This month, Lugo and Schaffer look back on the 21st century’s worst year yet and revisit its darkest sulfur-scented lows: from celebrity deaths, to the presidential election, to everything DC Comics splattered on the big screen. But things aren’t entirely gloom & meh in studio 6C as the boys also unpack their highlights of 2016, including a giddy dissection of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

    Will Schaffer’s sad devotion to his ancient robot buddy help him conjure up his lost data tapes? Will Lugo’s allegiance to some damn fool idealistic crusade turn him into an underworld extremist? Will 2017 suck as much as it’s prequel did? Well, that’s the thing about the future: nobody knows. Auld lang syne, loyal listener. Auld lang syne. (more…)
