Minisode – State of the podcast (no, we aren’t quitting *eyeroll*)

I’m sure this sign gets passed a lot on the highway of life.

Ever have one of those periods of time where you can’t get anything done because of your job?  This has been one of those times for us here at the What If Podcast.  Our job is physically demanding a lot of the time, and with the weather as it’s been, it’s doubly so.  We apologize for not having an episode on schedule, and we aren’t trying to make an excuse, but in the real world, work comes before play.  We’d love to be able to do this podcast full-time, but right now that isn’t happening so we need to have something to cover bills and late-night-post-recording-fast-food excursions.  We’ll be back in a bit with a full episode for ya. Stay tuned!

Episode 28 – Interview with Jon Gries…and something about lasers..but JON GRIES!

This is what real talent looks like.

You may know him as Lazlo Hollyfield in Real Genius, Det. Tony Montoya in Running Scared, Ronnie Wingate in Get Shorty, Uncle Rico in Napoleon Dynamite, or Casey in the Taken franchise and more recently as Dr. Roberts on Dream Corp, LLC. on Adult Swim; the greeat Jon Gries has been a consummate ‘that guy’ character actor on the big and small screen for nearly 40 years.  We had the fantastic opportunity to talk with him about his role in Real Genius, specifically what his thoughts were if the lasers in the movie were real.

Caution, your imminent vaporization via laser is about to begin!

 

We hope you enjoy this special episode!

Episode 27 – 2017 Year in Review!!

2017- “Why are you running!?”

2017 will go down in history as a very bad year for everyone… except the ultra-rich.

In this episode, we give a brief (yeah, it’s nearly three hours long, but that was skipping a lot of what happened.) rundown of the things that shaped this 365-day-long waterboarding session on the world.
