Battling a ghost in the machine, the Buddies are joined by special guest and fellow board game geek Joshua Lippincott. Drinks are shared, pizza is ordered, and then things get really, really deep. This, THIS, is the danger of having Josh Lippincott on your podcast!
Also: The moral correctness of dick pics in the modern age! Diagnostic troubleshooting in everyday life! Millennials!
The Buddies drink Mike’s Hendrick’s Gin “health tonics” as they submit themselves to the ultimate test of marital trust: They gave each of their wives $20 and told them to buy the weirdest food they could find, and then the Buddies agreed to eat a little of everything.
No guarantees on Mike n’ S’mike’s continued survival here, folks!
Plus: The Hu’watch 2 looks like poo! Legion love! And Jello!
The Buddies put on their crystal pyramid hats and channel their inner New-Age spiritualists as they review Netflix’s love-it-or-hate-it phenomenon, The OA. S’mike assembles a true gentleman’s cocktail to drunkenly align the Buddies’ awareness with the ley lines.
Tons of spoilers in this one, so watch the OA (or try to, at least) before listening!
Also: Erica makes a corrective appearance! S’mike does an interpretive dance! And Mike explains the ultimate OA sketch that SNL should do!
On a very special after-school episode of Buddies In Space, S’mike gets bullied by Mike’s two-year-old son. Sticks and stones break his bones, and names hurt S’mike deeply…
To ease S’mike’s pain, Mike whips up a tasty maple syrup and pot still whiskey Old Fashioned, and the Buddies recount their New Year’s Eve lameness, their day of board gaming and they finally discuss That Thing In Rogue One That Mike Didn’t Want To Discuss Right After The Movie Came Out.
Also: New board game reviews! The OA! Humorous contextual phrasing!
The Buddies cast their final pod of 2016 while knocking back extra-strength sake “Man Cans,” left over from S’mike’s latest Sake Meet Up. Mike loses his $#!^ over Rogue One, discussing it’s may virtues with as few spoilers as possible.
The Buddies then turn their attention to episodic television and each makes a case either for or against it, based on how Netflix has turned the TV industry on its head. Intelligent stuff is said, but who is right? You be the judge!
Also: Misbehaving video game cameras! Mean children! New Year’s resolutions! And buddiness…
In this Christmas episode, the Buddies sip a holiday-themed interpretation of the classic rum punch as S’mike helps Mike unbox his latest Firefly-themed Cargo Crate from Loot Crate. Mike doesn’t know what’s in it, which S’mike uses to torment his compatriot.
Also… Tales from Opry Land! Near-matricide! The scariest roller coaster experience ever! The innate horrors of urban decay! Oh, and and comedy, too!
Btw, the sheer genius of this episode’s title will only become evident if you listen to the episode. Or if you know virtually anything about Firefly.
