After an unintentional hiatus (it always seems to happen around the beginning of the year) The Workshop returns. This episode we had to record using the magic of voice over IP since we couldn’t be in the same studio. But we fought through scheduling conflicts and turned down million dollar contracts just so we could bring our podcast back to you, dear listener.
This episode is packed with all the wonderful meandering of two friends catching up and incidentally recording their conversation to put on the internet. It’s what we do. Share and enjoy!
The superhero movies just keep on coming, but this one’s pretty special.
For the record, Miles Morales first appeared in comics in 2011 – not 2003 as I mistakenly estimated – so he’s an even newer character than I was thinking.

Of course we had to talk about Christmas. I don’t think we did last year. Join us for a discussion of Christmas movies and specials and stick around until the end when we concept the greatest Christmas special (sadly) never made!
We’re all over the place on this episode. It’s just like old times. It’s like a time loop! You could say we wander to and far, but only if you’re a person who uses strange, nonstandard phrases instead of standard ones.
I was way on in my reckoning of episodes. I really thought we were in the mid-40s, but no. We’re just barely over the hill as a podcast. Still, episode 50 is in sight and that’s loaded with significance thanks to our base 10 numbering system and nothing else.
It’s been a while! Join us for a discussion of The Meg, bad shark movies, good shark movies, and what makes a good “fun” movie as opposed to a lame one.
The Meg Directed by: Jon Turteltaub Screenplay by: Dean Georgaris, Jon Hoeber, Erich Hoeber Starring: Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, and Cliff Curtis Music by: Harry Gregson-Williams Cinematography: Tom Stern Studio: Warner Bros. Pictures
