Hello all! We drawing closer to officially unveiling our new podcast next month, and we celebrate that, the recent eclipse, and the joys of updating Windows in our final teaser episode. We look forward to joining you on a regular basis soon!

Cheers,

JLo, Nick, and Shawn

Hello kids, long time no pod. We are not quite ready to re-launch our podcast full time under our new name, Not Gonna Lie to You, but we wanted to give you a little taste of our new format. Be aware that there's going to be a little more salty language in the podcast going forward, so fair warning.

JLo was chomping at the bit to talk about Edgar Wright's fantastic new film, Baby Driver, so we got together to record a glowing review. It's a total blast, and you should definitely go see it this week when it comes out.

Enjoy this sneak preview, and we're looking forward to bringing you our new podcast in the very near future!

Cheers!

JLo, Nick, and Shawn

2 years ago today, the Mundanity Podcast was unleashed upon an unprepared and unsuspecting world, so happy anniversary to us! We celebrate by welcoming back Voice of the Listener and pretty much official third chair Nick Parrucci to discuss the upcoming Star Wars Celebration Orlando, the fantastic first season of LEGION, catch up with some of our other favorite shows, and complain about the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer. (#Spoilermuch?) 

We thank you even more than usual for putting up with us for two years! Much love to you all...

Jim and Shawn (and Nick)

In retrospect, my friends, when you willingly turn the keys of the podcast over to Voice of the Listener and professional provocateur, Mr. Nick Parrucci, you really shouldn't be surprised when he comes up with ideas like "hey, why don't you guys take the Proust Questionnaire", but here we are, surprised nonetheless. We transport you back to the fashionable salons of 19th Century Paris with talk of literature, favorite virtues, heavily edited curse words, haute cuisine, and Peter Cetera. It's a wild, wild ride, so thanks for coming along with us.

Cheers, and thanks for listening!

On this episode of the podcast, we attempt to answer the age old question, "Can you make OSCAR picks if you haven't actually seen any of the movies nominated?" We answer that with an emphatic "Yes, we can!" In fact, we would argue that our analysis is all that much more impressive because of that fact.

By popular demand we welcome back third chair and voice of the listener Nick Parrucci to help us forecast the Academy Award winners, as well as name our all-time "Roll in Vegas Squad," in honor of Mr. Parrucci's impending triumphant return to Sin City next month.

As always, we appreciate you listening!

We are joined by a very special guest for this episode, as longtime voice of the (infrequent) listener, Mr. Nick Parrucci reprises his role as third chair this week. Things start of on a light note, as we draft our all-time "squad" to fight an unknown evil, and of course delve into a little Star Wars talk. You know, the usual stuff for about the first 55 minutes. After that, however, things get a little political, as we break from the mold to discuss "fake news", the current state of politics, and Donald Trump. (Spoiler: if you are die hard fan of 45, you might want to sit this one out.)

Cheer, and thanks for listening!

Welcome back to the Mundanity podcast, and this one is chock full of spoilers. We talk the (series?) finale of Sherlock, episodes of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Flash, and spend way too much time trying to glean anything we can from the reveal of the Star Wars Episode VIII title (The Last Jedi). Plus, Shawn's adventures in grooming!

Cheers, and thanks for listening!

Greetings all! It's a birthday episode of the Mundanity Podcast, as this one was recorded on the 25th* anniversary of Jim being forced upon an unsuspecting world. To celebrate, we discuss movies that we'd love to see on the big screen, Episode 2 of Sherlock (The Lying Detective), the season premiere of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and hipster foods.

Cheers, and thanks for listening!

Jim and Shawn

Update: It's confirmed! Jim does own original theatrical versions of the Star Wars trilogy on DVD. The fact that he stumbled upon these blindly is in now way making Shawn grind his teeth in anger at this very moment.

Greetings and happy 2017 from the Mundanity podcast! Now that Shawn has managed to free himself from the mountain of pops and toys that he received over Christmas, we are back after our holiday hiatus with our review of the terrific Rogue One, and some remembrances of the great Carrie Fisher. We also take a look at the first episode of season 4 of Sherlock, as well as talk briefly about the Doctor Who Christmas special. Spoilers abound for all three of these, so consider yourself well and truly warned.

Thanks for listening!

I'm not going to lie to you (ding!), we recorded this podcast right after Thanksgiving, and I nearly forgot about it thanks to an untimely illness and the general holiday hustle and bustle. This pod though tackles one of the great existential questions of our time, though: Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? It's a heated discussion as Shawn and I debate this most important of all holiday issues.

We also chat about our favorite holiday traditions, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and made some predictions about Rogue One (no spoilers, we don't say whether they came true or not!).

Wishing you all a festival holiday and new year! Thanks for listening!

Jim and Shawn
