Daily mediocrity since 2003 from Portland, Oregon.

Today's show is one of the most pop-culture intensive shows that's happened in quite awhile, and you know it's gonna get insightful with David Walker in the box. People are complaining about remakes/reboots again, what with the news of Dirty Dancing getting a makeover soon. Is it automatically a negative, …
Burritos and Whiskey. Biohazard Suits & Flutes. Johnny 5 is Alive whether you want him to be or not, and RC cars save lives. These are but a few of the stories and subjects that are weaved throughout today's nerderriffic show with Aaron Duran and Ryan Fleming. Aaron's history as …
Mike Russell and special guest Indigo Kelleigh (founder of Stumptown Comics Fest, author of Ellie Connelly) have an insightful chat about webcomics, why anyone would do such a thing, and how we wound up in what seems to be the epicenter of a quiet little media revolution. How Podcasting and …
Big Jim Willig had an adventure in Salem, OR last night. This is not necessarily a good thing, for Jim. For hilarious schadenfreudian purposes, its' a GREAT thing for us. Also great? Byron Beck, especially when there's a cavalcade of celebrities milling about town, like Muhammad Ali, Charles Barkley, David …
Courtenay Hameister has been challenged on this day. Not only does she have to make magic out of mediocrity once again, but she has to a) open the show with a discussion about video games, and then b) follow that discussion up with a look into a failed relationship with …
David Walker is once again ladling big bowlfuls of wisdom into your ears today, on a wide variety of topics. The biggest one, of course, is Brian Michael Bendis' decision to make Miles Morales the newest Spider-Man, and why his race isn't another example of the sort of quota-filling pandering …
Ryan Fleming of DigitalTrends, and Aaron Duran of Geek in the City are in the unfortunate position of being in the room when both Cort and Fatboy's brains stop working correctly. So while Ryan tries to educate the people on anti-troll cybertrickery by Lulzsec, NASA's plans to sink the International …

Mike Russell is your pop-culture travel guide through the minefield of mediocrity that is Cort and Fatboy. Topics include - his latest Sabretooth Vampire comics, his continued trips into insanity via cross-country running, cool people listened to our show once and thought it was okay, The Ark of the Covenant …
Byron Beck. Big Jim Willig. Known for taking this mound of mediocrity and making it into a mountain of WTF. One one side of that mountain? A discussion on the nature of Ambition, and whether Portland is a dangerous, unhealthy place for someone who harbor that drive. Why does ambition …
Courtenay Hameister makes magic out of mediocrity once again, getting in on the Raiders of the Lost Ark talk by discussing how Indy's relationship with Marion is so much more different, and so much better than most action movie "relationships," and somehow that veers into a discussion about both the …

David Walker is back from San Diego, and as per usual - he's got a lot on his mind. The warmup: A discussion on the impact that only a theatrical screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark can have on a young mind. That leads into whether grown-up geeks are …

Aaron Duran and Ryan Fleming arrive to make sense of the nerdly pop-culture aftermath of the weekend, and there's no shortage of detritus to discuss. The DC Reboot and David Wu seem to be sharing similar downward spirals, The best Spy Hunter secret weapon is REVEALED, along with Cort's inability …

Mike Russell. The Man. The Mind. The guy who knows things Fatboy doesn't know, like stuff about how to reset a cat's P-Ram. Seriously. And while the show starts with a discussion about kitties (which is probably not what you came for) it rolls into topics that you're probably more …
We THOUGHT Byron was gonna be gone for the day, and so Big Jim Willig brought in his friend Don Frost to talk about the Portland comedy scene, the bubble that may or may not exist much less be bursting anytime soon, and the evolution of Sweaters from prehistoric times …
Courtenay Hameister doesn't just have a bone to pick, she has a whole damned skeleton. it's not an easy job, taking the rough, lumpy clay of cortandfatboy and molding it into a pretty, relevant, functional lamp, or vase, or ashtray or something. Today's topics? Why a series of ads featuring …

David Walker is off to Comic-Con to find glory, fame and a wife. He leaves Cort and Fats alone on the very same day that the world goes just a slight touch crazy, what with Parliamentary proceedings being interrupted via Pie-Fight. Of course, they go the only place a discussion …

Ryan Fleming gets a solo shot, as Aaron Duran has to count comics at his Comics Store. So what does Fleming do with all that extra talk time? He helps Cort and Fats bury the needle on their nerdometer. A long rambly discussion breaks out about the following subjects: The …

Mike Russell is a runner. When he's not reviewing movies and being a cartooning genius, he secures his sneakers to his fleet feet and conquers the road. I bring this up because he grabs Cort and Fats hands and performs the conversational equivalent of that - the ground covered in …
Day One of the catalyst for this week's shift in scheduling and guest shuffling: Byron Beck and Big Jim Willig are joined in unholy conversational matrimony starting today and continuing forevermore. Is it everything that you could have hoped and dreamed a permanent joining of these two titans of talk …
Up-front warning: This is probably the weirdest episode we've ever done with Courtenay Hameister. Cort and Fats are tired as hell from a successful Geek Trivia, and Courtenay has been on a juice fast for the past week, so everyone is loopy as hell, and that allows for all sorts …
