If it's crap ... We'll tell you
In this our 97th episode of the show we talk about some endings and new beginnings!
We began as we do every week by revealing that Cesca has been dead the whole time.
After that Cesca discussed her parting of ways with the roller derby team, and Ben announced his new comedy show that is starting up on June 4th (Squee).

In this third instalment of Cargasm we are joined by the elder statesman of Niagara Comedy, Jeff Stroop. This is part one of what will have to be a two part conversation which I consider Niagara Comedy: A People’s History.
This is a recording of the drive back from historic Club 54 in Burlington (home of the longest running stand up comedy show in television history). This was Ben’s first and Jeff’s hundred and first time performing there.…Continue

In this our 85th episode of the show we are having a fireside chat with Melissa (@melissacocetta).
We began as we do every week by spoiling our thoughts about the movie that they are about to spend the next hour and a half discussing.
As you may have guessed this entire episode is devoted to a discussion of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. It was going to be a Braingasm Reviews but the discussion went into too many different…

In this our 84th episode of the Braingasm Podcast we do another sit down comedian conversation with one of my favourite people in the world, Tom Benjamin (@rottentommy).
We began as we do every week with Ben getting mad at the guest for having a better voice than him.

In this better late than never 83rd episode of the Braingasm Podcast we are at full host strength and we are joined by a master Denic McElwaine (@den1981).
We began as we do every week with an out of nowhere recording and no preface. It ended up producing a good segment so it was worth it.
After that we BSed around for a while before finally moving into What’s Been Filling Our Voids. Cesca got an extra life by seeing Wreck-It Ralph.…Continue

In this shaken not stirred instalment of the wildly popular and father to many Braingasm Reviews series Ben, Jordan (@jowoco), and Zack (@Z_h_) reviewed the beloved latest entry in the James Bond film series, Skyfall.
In keeping with tradition they broke the discussion down to a spoiler free first segment and a spoiler ridden second segment. If you haven't seen the movie I would highly recommend that you not spy on the second…Continue

In this our 81st episode of the Braingasm Podcast we are joined by three comedians in the no particular order: Clifford Myers (@Cliffalus ), Jeff Stroop and Brenda Lennie!
We began as we do every week by disparaging people named "Robbie" from our lofty positions sitting on the ground in a parking lot outside of a bar in Hamilton in the middle of the night...on a Wednesday.
This was a super cool episode for me and I have to say,…Continue

This episode is an hour and a quarter conversation between Ben and Alex that covers topics as wild and varied as their views of show business, why…

This is a very…Continue

I posted this earlier but allow me to elaborate. Cesca and I have decided to participate in this year's Extra Life charity video game marathon. We were drafted in the 3rd round by team Spillio (captained by the lovely Caitlin Turner) so all of your donations go to show people that Braingasm fans and Spill fans at large are the best and most awesomest community on the Internet (no pressure).

We began as we do every week with Jordan proclaiming his hatred of science in favour of his beloved religion.
After that we had an intensely entertaining BSing section which lasted right up until we moved on into What's Been…Continue

Ben and Melissa (@melissacocetta) sit down and review the new Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass movie
Safety Not Guaranteed about a magazine intern who gets the story of a lifetime, writing about a man who is looking in the classifieds for a partner to travel back in time with. I know it sounds kind of out there but trust me it’s a really good movie.
