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).
After that we gave an already out of date update on the Braingasm Summer Movie Wager!
Then we broke…Continue

In this our 87th episode of the Braingasm podcast we are flying solo once again.
We began as we do every week with Ben complaining about the audio quality and abruptly pausing the record to fix it.
After that we did a bit of BS-ing. Cesca gave a status update about her new humble abode and Ben told the story of his first ever comedy show. It’s a good story and the effect that it had on Ben is obvious in the way he tells…Continue

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.
After that we got right to the business of conversation. Topics discussed ranged from: Tom’s drastically different on stage and off stage personae, his bad luck with…Continue

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
Hey gang. I’m so happy to release the much anticipated and eagerly awaited episode 80 with very special guest Brian Brushwood. Yes, THE Brian Brushwood(@shwood). Boo ya indeed.
This was an entire episode of Void Filling goodness but for the beginning. We actually began as we do every week by voting for Mitt Romney.

In this our 78th episode of the Braingasm Podcast we are Cesca less and Ben heavy but don’t hold that against us. We were joined by locally and soon to be globally legendary Magician/Comedian Alex Kazam (Add him on facebook).

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…

In this our 77th episode (alliteration yay!) of the Braingasm Podcast we are joined by the black Wesley Snipes, Shakyl (@the_gaming_king).
We began as we do every week with Ben getting paranoid that someone is going to steal the podcast’s name.
After that we BSed for a while about Breaking Bad, Breaking Bad haters, and other non-Breaking Bad topics as well.

We began as we do every week with a brief description of SPIKE BOX!
After that we got into a good ol' fashioned Bs-athon which ended up taking up the entire first half of the show. This only ever happens because the conversation is just too damn fun to call to a close. Topics discussed include: Grantland's…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).

This is the first half of the live Broadcast that Jordan Cobb and Ben did to prepare for the live episode 73.
This part begins with some very irreverent Breaking Bad talk followed by some similarly irreverent BS-ing before we got down and dirty with a thorough, and highly entertaining discussion of the new HBO drama series The Newsroom.
Look for part two where we break down…Continue
