Coffee With Jeff #173: The Tabor Saga

30 mins - Published Sun, Mar 24, 2019.

It sounds like a story from film or television. A man and wife go out west during the gold rush and end up becoming the richest couple in the west. Another, much younger, beauty enters the picture and the rich old man divorces his wife for the pretty young thing. They live an extravagant lifestyle – and then they lose everything.

This is the story of the Tabors who made fortune in silver in the late 1880. I have the story on the 173rd episode of Sunday Morning Coffee with Jeff.


Who's Who #147: The Girl in the Fireplace

56 mins - Published Thu, Mar 21, 2019.

With a title like The Girl in the Fireplace a “double-the title”, we figured this episode could be about anything, so long as there was a girl in a fireplace at some point. What we found was that this episode was just about the best we’ve seen in a long long time.


Movieing On #320: The Blue Lagoon (1980)

56 mins - Published Tue, Mar 19, 2019.

In July of 1980, Roger Ebert felt he had seen enough movies to qualify his review for The Blue Lagoon by stating that “”The Blue Lagoon is the dumbest movie of the year”, and in this week’s episode, the gang find it quite hard to argue against that assessment – and to his observation that, quote, “every third shot in this movie seems to be showing a parrot’s reaction to something”.


Pint Notes #85: Best of the Second Half of 2018

1 hour 10 mins - Published Tue, Mar 19, 2019.

It’s a new year, and another year of music for Pint Notes and its hosts, Rebecca Ruiz and Josh Wodarz.

But first, there’s unfinished business. Mainly the “Things We Loved From the Second Half of 2018” episode that has been languishing in the vaults. (more…)

Geekdays #832: Week Starting March 4th

15 mins - Published Thu, Mar 7, 2019.


The MMOsketeers #232: I Like Bear Butts

1 hour 34 mins - Published Wed, May 16, 2018.

… and I cannot lie that this episode is really late.


Gordon's Gun Closet #22: Pirate Guns

30 mins - Published Thu, Sep 21, 2017.

It was Talk Like a Pirate Day this week here in the USA. ‘Tis a silly day, but we thought that since the latest episode of The History Files (#90) was also about pirates, we’d better do a companion show here at the gun closet. Special thanks to friend of the show Jim Wingren for indulging my request for a children’s show type stinger at the top of the episode.


The History Files #90: Pirates

48 mins - Published Fri, Sep 8, 2017.

We’re back… and we brought pirates! Actually, that’s probably not such a great idea, what with all the stealing and pillaging and slow-matches in the beard and buckets of burning sulphur. Of course that’s only if we brought Edward Teach, but you get the idea. This episode was recorded live in front of a very groggy audience on a Sunday morning at the Brass Screw Confederacy Steampunk festival in Pt. Townsend, Washington on June 11, 2017. We had a great time revelling in all the pirate stuff and hope you enjoy our little presentation.

Take Five #52: Fridge

13 mins - Published Tue, May 16, 2017.

There’s something very final about refrigerators, wouldn’t you say?

What's in a Name? #7: Bowler Hat

14 mins - Published Thu, May 4, 2017.

Famously worn by the likes of Charlie Chaplin, and Bat Masterson, the bowler is a hat with pizzazz. It was also worn by super action guy John Steed. It’s too bad James Bond didn’t also customarily wear one; this being episode 007 and all.


Nothing Important Happened Today #35: Other Countries are Mostly the Same but Also Different

39 mins - Published Wed, Mar 29, 2017.

Petter and Breki are globetrotters extraordinaire, and this week they recount the many experiences they’ve had in foreign lands. Hint: It’s pretty much what the title says.

The now infamous bathtub-scene is in the montage that starts in Vlog #40 around 33 minutes in.


Retrograde #77: Christmas Special 2016

1 hour 29 mins - Published Sat, Dec 24, 2016.

Christmas comes a little early as The Retrograde team are back for another Christmas romp. Host Jack Marshall is joined by his usual happy elves of Anthony Hobday, James Mcfadyen, and Lysanne Skinner aka Lysanne Fisher.

So sit back, grab some eggnog, a few mince pies, light the fire, and get ready for a bumper packed Christmas Retrograde Special!

We Need To Talk #37: Apple 2016 September Keynote

1 hour 10 mins - Published Wed, Sep 7, 2016.

Apple has taken the time to announce the new iPhone 7, so it’s obvious what happens next: Breki sits down with Jon to talk about it.


The Kingston Legacy #21: Pokemon Go Away

55 mins - Published Thu, Jul 14, 2016.

Robert Algeo and Josh Wodarz tackle most important issue of the day – Pokemon Go! Yes, yes, it’s another thing about Pokemon Go, but you know, with our irreverent spin on things. By irreverent, we mean Robert making fun of it and Josh laughing. Yep, that’s how we roll. (more…)
