The World’s Greatest Online Magazine Presents The Half-Baked Podcast: 08. Abject Despair

Hey, gang. There's not much fun Twins talk, so Daneeka's Ghost came back to discuss the Wild before they go into the playoffs. We all know how this will end, but we wanted to keep things as bright and shiny as possible.

We unfortunately did not have the constitution to keep up the rosiness when we did actually get to the Twins, but it needed to be discussed anyway. So we did, and that was... yeah.

Music is always good though, and here are the video's we discussed:

The World’s Greatest Online Magazine Podcast The Half-Baked Podcast: 05. At Year’s End

Hey, gang. In an effort to contain all of the bad stuff inside of 2020, we rushed to get this out in time. Some topics include:

  • A sacred ceremony to rename this as the "Half-Baked Podcast" from whoever it was that suggested it (it was Beau; NBB found our current round of sponsors).
  • A look at some of the recent moves in the MLB.
  • The Twins blockbuster signing of Hansel Robles.
  • What to do with Jorge Polanco.
  • Other moves and free agents we'd like to see like the see the Twins go after up the middle and in the rotation.
  • A quick round of congrats to the "Final Fantasy" winners.

CHA-CHING!

The World’s Greatest Online Magazine Podcast: 04. One Two Three…

We did the thing again. This was recorded on Monday night. Topics include:

  • Is a chili bread bowl a sandwich (featuring hungry joe misusing the word "posit")?
  • A rundown of this years Hall of Fame ballot.
  • A random movie review to fill a little time (SPOILERS)

Here is the Seth Stohs article we discussed.

03. The Wuuuuuhhhh-GOMP!

Hey, gang, we made another podcast. We're sorry.

Topics include the 2020 postseason, a little brief Twins news, the KBO playoffs, some "new" faces in the AL Central, highlights on recent videos, a thorough trashing of PBJs (DK abstained), and an exhaustive breakdown of the Vikings and Gophers football programs.

The Duck Duck Gray Ducks On The Pondcast

Okay, so, here's another one we did. Kind of. You see, someone screwed everything up and completely lost the second half of what recorded. Lost topics include more season wrap-up as well as a look towards next year. We'll pick that up again next time after I quintuple check how to make sure I whoever doesn't screw everything up next time.

Also, I'll need to figure out how to embed in the page. Here's the link for now.

(eschapp: there is an add media button on the edit post page)

World’s Greatest Online… Podcasf?

We're going to have a to think of a better name...

Anyway, so DK, Nibbish, and myself made this thing. I assure you, it's appropriately half-baked. We recorded on Monday but I'm just getting it out now for several reasons which include trying to figure out how to make a podcast.

I'm going to attempt to get this on the usual podcast platforms, but I wanted to get this out here as such an amazing discussion with scorching hot takes needs to get out to the masses as soon as possible.

The videos DK and I discuss are Tree In Orange:

And Styx's Renegade:

And we had a special guest pop in and discuss STAMPED: Racism, Antiracism, and You by Ibram X. Kendi and Jason Reynolds.

Summer Mix 2020

Okay, we might as well officially release this to the unwashed masses. Also, let's put this up to push Tommy off the front page for Rhu_Ru's sake.

Anyway, here are some things I said at the pre-release (which I've edited):

Some quick notes:

    • We had a lot of submitters, and a lot of you chose longer songs. After that, there were a lot of other songs that should be on there, so the mix ran a little long.
    • As such, for several reasons it just made more sense to split it into two parts. Each has a theme of sorts.
    • Downloadable files are available (first link). I know at least in iTunes, if you use the "Song Info" option on each track, go to sorting, and select "Remember playback position", it makes it more manageable to skip around the longer tracks.

Have at it. 2020 is a weird year, and this is appropriately a weird mix. I like it though.

Sadly, I haven't gotten around to breaking it into songs as promised. HOWEVER, to ease consumption a bit, I had the idea to release it as a podcast. This way you can walk around with it but don't need to worry about getting it into your library (though that's still an option).

I'm going to try to get this on more platforms but here is where the Summer Mix is available for now:
