About this Episode

This week the guys are joined by friends of the show Rusty McClintock (Comedian | RCF Exteriors & Remodeling) and Ken Carlson (Artist, Director, and General Artistic Badass)! They catch up with a chat about Justin's new house projects from RCF, Ken's recap from Crypticon 2024, pet ownership, video game hangups, exercise problems, and more!

02:30 - The gang enthusiastically welcomes back Rusty and Ken to catch up on the latest happenings in their lives. Justin can’t help but gush over the incredible renovation work RCF Exteriors has done on his home and the Brass Kraken Studios. The conversation then shifts to the joys and challenges of handyman work, highlighting Justin's playful aversion to DIY projects.

22:00 - Ken reveals that he recently watched Thelma & Louise for the first time. The gang dives into a lively discussion about the movie before branching out to chat about various other films and TV shows, including the live airings of the FOX sitcom ROC.

33:00 - The conversation shifts to video games, debating whether looking up tips online counts as 'cheating.' They then take a nostalgic dive into retro games and the experience of playing them with emulators.

53:00 - The gang explores the concept of 'smash rooms' and the cathartic process of getting rid of trash, leading Justin to share his unique 'Donate-Trash-Smash' method. They circle back to more gaming discussions before wrapping up with a talk about upcoming projects and where listeners can find them!

Thanks again to Ken and Rusty for the lively chat and a fantastic time at the Union Club!
