    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?

    Newly-minted wrestling superfan Schaffer the Darklord continues his campaign to pull co-host Nelson Lugo down into Suplex City!

    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…)

    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…)

    This month on the EPIC PIEcast, Lugo and Schaffer celebrate the end of the 2016 presidential election by gazing slack-jawed in horrified disbelief at the results.

    Later, the boys look for hope in the future when Dr. David Putrino, Ph.D. drops by to discuss his lab’s use of cutting edge technology like mobile apps, virtual reality and robots to treat various physical and mental health conditions. What’s got Lugo frightened? What’s got Schaffer angry? OH MY GOD, IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING?! Two of these questions will be answered as we face both terrifying and inspiring new realities in this month’s episode. (more…)

    This month Schaffer geeks out over Marvel’s Luke Cage and Alex Trebek’s insult to nerdcore hip-hop while Lugo suffers an unfamiliar artistic crisis. Later, actor Leslie Hendrix (Gotham, Law & Order) drops by to dish on her role as a Batman villain and her 19-year “part-time job” as a television medical examiner. Does Schaffer sleep on all of his collaborations? Is Lugo a music video producer now? Did fate land Hendrix her gig as the face of a shadowy cabal? We could answer these questions, but instead we suggest you just listen to this month’s episode. (more…)

    This month, a looming deadline, a canceled guest, and a tardy co-host leave Schaffer no choice but to go it alone as he attempts to fill half the show with every bad idea he can muster. When Lugo finally arrives, the boys take note of how accurately two new Netflix series represent their respective childhood environments.

    What’s got Schaffer angry? Where the fuck [has Lugo] been? Is anyone there? These questions will literally be asked out loud in this month’s episode. (more…)

    As lifelong Bat-fans, Nelson Lugo and Schaffer the Darklord have been salivating for the seemingly endless smorgasbord of Dark Knight goodies that DC Comics and Warner Bros have been cooking up all year. However, after greedily gobbling up Suicide Squad, Killing Joke and Rebirth for this month’s episode of EPIC PIEcast, our co-hosts find themselves with stomachaches. Later, LA-based rapper Coolzey makes a tour pit stop at Studio #6C for a one-on-one chit-chat with Schaffer about life on the road and the thrill of challenging audience expectations. How many LL Cool J lyrics can Lugo recite? Where did Schaffer bomb the hardest? Did Coolzey know about the gun in the van? These questions will appear in the show notes of this month’s episode.
