EPIC PIEcast

  1. EPIC PIEcast :: Episode 62 :: Lux Alptraum Handles the Truth

    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, Schaffer takes a break from producing burlesque wrestling promo videos to catch up with Nelson who reminds him why they started this podcast years ago. (That reason is Batman.) Later, former Fleshbot editor LUX ALPTRAUM drops by to discuss her upcoming book Faking It: The Lies Women Tell About Sex–And the Truths They Reveal.

    Why are women held to impossible expectations of honesty by men who will not accept their truths? Which trick has Lugo given a fresh spin? Has Schaffer died and gone to MTA heaven? Though these questions will be posed, your ability to handle the truth remains to be seen in this month’s episode. (more…)

  2. EPIC PIEcast :: Episode 61 :: Raging With That L.E.X.

    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 your rapidly aging co-grumps celebrate the kickoff of summer movie season with a painstakingly thorough analysis of May’s biggest releases, before they jump ship to get to the good stuff. The “good stuff” in question is an interview with Oakland-based rapper Lex the Lexicon Artist who drops by Studio #6C to dish on her new full-length album Raging Ego and walk us through the impressive musical history that led her to becoming 2018’s hottest new nerdcore act.

    Is Schaffer’s favorite summer “movie” really 5 hours long? Is Lugo really the bigger fan of fantasy space opera? Is there anything Lex CAN’T do?! Nobody asks these questions in this month’s episode. (more…)

  3. EPIC PIEcast :: Episode 60 :: Payback

    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 this rousing round of Piecasting, Nelson books a burlesque gig where people don’t hate him, and Schaffer follows up on his Wrestlemania predictions (see Episode 59) before both boys dig into their long-neglected mail bag. Does Lugo really want to launch a second podcast? Will Schaffer have to make good on last month’s embarrassing wager? Do our fans just want to listen to us watch television? The answers to these questions are found within.

    So just listen; it’s only 83 minutes. You’ve got plenty of time in this month’s episode. (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.

    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…)

    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…)

    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…)

    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…)

    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…)
