It’s been a long time since we’ve done a guest-less Countdown podcast (although, we miss our buddy Bill from ZOS Films), but today we decided to end that streak. The guys of Dating Ourselves Podcast are covering some of their favorite Adult Cartoons… that being animated TV
We would like to remind everyone: Don’t go chasing waterfalls. That’s right, the Dating Ourselves Podcast boys are talking this week about the famous 1990s R&B girl group TLC. Don’t miss a second of Paul expressing his adoration of Sally Jessy Raphael, Brian talking about Grammys compilation CDs, and Adam visiting the guys’ childhood roller rink.
We took the month of June off, and felt we could make up for it by coming up with the longest episode title we’ve had so far. But, it’s a fitting title, as Adam leads us in a discussion of the Nickelodeon teen horror TV series, Are You Afraid of the Dark? Avoid nightmarish, sleepless nights as Brian talks about The Stig, Adam sells us on Letterkenny, and Paul talks about M. Night Shyamalan’s surprising source of inspiration.
It’s about time we covered one of the original Bad Boys of Saturday Night Live. On this episode, the Dating Ourselves Podcast guys are once again joined by Daniel of BC to discuss one of the funniest people alive: Chris Rock. Don’t touch that dial as Brian reminisces about Dr. Katz, Adam gets hungry, Paul shares his guilty pleasure, and Dan introduces us to a new game: Did You Yell It at the Toddler or the Dog?
A little something extra for the stay at home blues! This week on Dating Ourselves, Brian has some fun to share. Using a mix of found footage of our greatest hits and misses, Brian has composed another fabulous blooper episode! Tune in next week for our regularly scheduled programming.
Definitely one of our most requested topics, the Dating Ourselves Podcast guys finally get around to discussing the plushy goodness of Ty Beanie Babies. Stay tuned as Paul shares stories of his AOL CD battle scars, Brian describes his initial association with Jerry Garcia, guest host Dan (in a strange turn of events) becomes Adam’s boss, all while he can’t quite figure out why anyone would ever mean to text the word “ducking”.
It’s been a bit since the Dating Ourselves Podcast boys have talked about a sci-fi or action flick, so why not talk about both?! That’s right, we’re going totally all in on Total Recall, the 1990 Paul Verhoeven film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sharon Stone, Michael Ironsides and more! Check it out as Adam chats about The Jackal, Brian sympathizes with Goose’s wardrobe in the Top Guy volleyball montage, and Paul puts the image of a fight between Michael Ironside and Kurtwood Smith in our minds.
While Paul is boldly going where no man has gone before, Brian and Adam decide to have a chat about some of their concert experiences. Travel down memory lane with these guys, as Adam shares his surprising worldview he holds on Creed (even in 2020), and Brian recalls an uncharacteristically sentimental PSA at a Mudvayne show, and they both commiserate about the band Throwdown.
This is our final answer, Regis; the Dating Ourselves Podcast guys probably the most beloved prime-time gameshow of the 1990s: Who Wants to Be a Millionaire! Listen on as Brian mentions President George Clinton, Adam shares his passion for the career of Justin Guarini, and Paul reminds us that not everyone understands how a compass works.
Last time was our soft opening of Dating Ourselves 2020 (does that make this episode our hard opening then?… let’s not think about that too much!), and this episode we are visiting some of the major US sports franchises that were added as expansion teams during our time period of 1980-2005, or the teams that are no longer with us today. Listen on as Brian does his (very bad) Northern New Jersey accent impression, Paul shares with us who his inner monologue sounds like, and Adam gives his two cents on Dave Matthews Band.
