Life hangs in the balance on Earth. We face the judgement of Carl Sagan and his secret cabal of barely grounded characters.
The sole criteria of the judgement: the Scattered Podcast.
Sorry that we are all doomed, but you will have to listen to part 2 to find out how.
Movie trailers: Love them or hate them, we can watch a bunch of them in a short period of time.
Also; Ray likes meerkats, Nate is disgusted by the idea of scurvy ridden pirates and Erik receives word that a stranger’s family member has passed away during the show. Not sure whose. We express our deepest condolences.
If anything, watch The Dark Tower trailer, and form an opinion that isn’t terrible.
Its the Erik and Ray show! They get their own theme and they get their own episode to meander around in. They take an online quiz and figure out something deep about themselves.
They talk about ecosystems, we think.
They definitely talk about Klingon foreheads at least.
We talk about what makes movies truly great: the music. We also wonder why Will Smith didn’t make a sweet concussion song to the titular movie Concussion and get the song started if he needs it. There is also speculation about Santa’s not just kissing mom’s, but elude to more torrid affairs (boning).
Its the 45th sequel to the original Scattered Podcast, and we don’t improve on brand recognition. Erik ‘Hawt Breff’ Taylor gets upset at stuff. Raymond will finish a thought if Erik lets him. Nate retells the perfect description of Prometheus, giving it the time travel plot it needs.
We get political, again-ish? We talk technology and poverty, which go hand in hand when those who need ax to grind against those in poverty who are trying to be in a modern world.
We also get into March Madness/The Bachelor by conceptualizing a contest of voting each of us off the podcast one at a time till we are all gone. Maybe we will come back after getting voted off?
Nate describes his trauma surrounding Meet the Parents. Erik sounds douchey, again! Randy ducks out early because of his loser tendencies. Ray doesn’t think about death every goddamnit minute of the day, just every OTHER minute of the day, so like half day of death thinking.
Warning: We do talk some air travel related disasters, terrible things and if that is what you don’t want to hear, you can hear the first half of the episode without any of that stuff.
