Episode 86 with Max Temkin of Cards Against Humanity
We had a blast this week with Max Temkin, one of the creators of Cards Against Humanity. He read us some cards from the cutting room floor and explained the nuts and bolts of developing the game. Be sure to subscribe on iTunes or your favorite podcast syndicator!
Double the writers, double the fun—Nikki Stowers and Jason Walther, both writers for The Charlie Visconage Show, are here to play round two of Fact or Factoid and reminisce about halcyon roller rink days…
No Steven this week, but Philistine Phounding Phather Chris Gessner Gess-hosts, with Jeff Hughes joining the crew. Charlie runs the episode with his own DMV’s Finest: Fact or Fiction and Tagline Pitch, but it’s Jeff who steals the show with the story of discovering (at 42!) his long-lost brother. And no, it’s not Alfonso Ribeiro.
Charlie Nox is back sans Charlie V. We talk to her about dating with cancer, living like a gypsy, and how she’s going to create an art installation collecting all of the unsolicited dick pics she’s received.
It’s not all (just mostly) about the Dark Knight on this week’s Philistine Radio. We’ve got a Bat Chat bonus segment at the end, plus Ali’s audio Bat Diary about seeing all three of the Nolan trilogy in a row. Plus we learn about Christian pop star Lowell Lundstrom and Ali gets hit on in a totally sweet way by a mime.
Jack Slattery is the Funniest College Student in D.C. and the rightful heir to a year’s supply of Popchips. He’s here this week to talk about his upcoming legal case against Popchips, Ali’s imminent nine-hour Batman experience, and womb veils.
David Reilly of Humourisms.com returns for a triumphant discussion of his D&D character “Slick William,” Project X: Cavan, and how he spent his last Fourth of July watching fireworks in NYC with a Captain American mask and a dozen patriotic Dunkin Donuts.
This week, we were pumped to have Shane Houghton, writer for Reed Gunther, the Peanuts reboot, and an upcoming Bart Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror issue! We interviewed him about getting a publisher for Reed Gunther, creating the latest generation of Peanuts, and the life of a reality TV show editor.
We had an awesome time this week with Mary-Alice Farina of DC 365 and District Karaoke. Ali explains how she used to wait on D.C. “Mayor for Life” Marion Barry, Charlie uses his go-to “foppish villain” Cesar Romero, and we all talk a lot about poop.
This week is 100% Steven-free…sorry, Steven fans! Instead, Melanie Curtin of Vixen on the Loose and AskRomeo.com joins us from Maui to chat about Ali’s bank boyfriend, the dangers of denim condoms, and the very real scourge of female drug cartels!
Shit gets serious this week, with Mo Arora reporting in from the Philistine Radio Quebec Desk about the ongoing protests in that city. But don’t worry, it’s not all bad—you also get to hear Charlie’s Skrillex remix of “Rock Around the Clock.”
