Kenn Edwards invites AJ Wiley (of podcasts Gobbledygeek/The Avatar Returns) and director Joseph William Lewis (Nowheresville, upcoming motion picture A/V) back on the show for the final episode of 2015, bringing the trio together for the first time on record since the final episode of their former project, Smoke Gets In Your Ears: A Mad Men Podcast. This episode gets deep as the gang dive deep into the inherent frustrations and subsequent psychosis brought on by the life of the hungry artist in the modern era, habitual practices and lack thereof, dealing with society politically in the current social climate, and much more. It's a good one! Strap in, enjoy! Follow @TheKennEdwards, @ToastedSchizo, & @UnpluggedCrazy.

Kenn Edwards invites Project Batman co-creator Vincent Ottobre back on the show to geek out and revel in their utter excitement of the imminent release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens! Fears, expectations, anticipations, proclamations, hypotheticalization, interstellar planetary invasion, and guaranteed brain stimulation, all in one entertaining conversation! But this isn't the end! This is only the prequel, to the actual episode that we're all looking forward to being able to have: in just a day or so, the duo returns to discuss their thoughts, feelings, and general reactions to the most anticipated movie of perhaps their entire lives. Until then, enjoy this episode! The Force is strong with this one.

Kenn Edwards gathers comedians Winston Hodges, TJ Ferguson, Paige Campbell, and Tom Wagoner for a discussion intended to focus on the ethics of "covering" other comedians' material that quickly branches into an array of various topics, from the meanings and differences in personal belief structures to other more common subjects like relationships and TV shows. Five comedians in a room will never not make for an extremely satisfying two hours. Dig in, friends.

In an episode designed to be shared by regular podcast listeners with the uninitiated, Kenn Edwards convinces anyone new to podcasts why they exist as much as for them as they are for anyone and everyone else, outlines all the reasons he finds them important, and responds to many comments from those who insists they can't get into podcasts.

Kenn Edwards is joined by AJ Wiley & Paul Smith (hosts of the Gobbledygeek podcast) for a debate based on their own personal insights on two of the biggest issues facing our current state of media consumption: spoilers/spoilerphobia and file-sharing/torrents. Every side is represented in basics to extremes, and the conversation ranges from objective relevance to lofty beliefs on the subjective finer definitions of art vs. artist. This is a debate that'll go down in SLGTTP history - stop reading and start enjoying it!

SPOILER ALERT: PLEASE WATCH THE JOKE BEFORE LISTENING TO THIS EPISODE OF THIS PODCAST!!!
Paul Smith (one half of the famed Gobbledygeek podcast) returns to the podcast to discuss a myriad of (important and/or pointless - you decide!!) subjects, not the least of which ARE: life (on and offline, in the real and virtual world), (the struggle for self-)love, and airbending else... that is to say - they really go all in on analyzing (and over-alalyzing) the strengths, weaknesses, merits, and legacy of the now renowned and universally acclaimed Nickelodeon animated series, Avatar: The Last Airbender & The Legend of Korra. IT'S WEIRD AND GOOD. Enjoy it, future listener (or re-listener-again-er!!!) of this!! I HAVE NO DOUBTS ABOUT THE FACT THAT YOU WILL! :D ! :D ! :D !
