Episode 23 Food Memories, and the Ashley Madison Phenomenon

November 2nd, 2016


So a couple of months ago the three of us sat around the old "Recording Studio" aka Terry's kitchen table and started rambling for about 4 hours. It felt good for us to just sit back and be "The Rant Pack" again. No special guests (unless you count us for riding in on the short bus),  just 3 guys, a mic, a few farts, and some good old fashioned shit talking! We talked about food and how it can bring back memories, both good and bad, while Rudy got made fun of for how he pronounces certain words. Somehow we got on the topic of the Ashley Madison scandal, and Terry did his best David Letterman impersonation with a very...."INTERESTING" Top 10. Get ready for some laughs!

Episode 22 “Comic Guru” TJ Shevlin is back for more!!!

October 18th, 2016


You ever listen to an interview that is so perfect that you don't know what to do with yourself? Well when Rudy was editing this episode with the very charismatic TJ Shevlin from the San Diego Comic Book Gallery, he started talking to himself and this is a direct quote. "Hey Self, this episode is perfect and if you cut anything from it you are not only messing with said perfection, you would also be doing a huge disservice to your audience." That being said this is a longer episode than we usually put out, but since we delve into some pretty serious topics we think you'll enjoy it! We talk about Suicide Squad, Batman V Superman, and the all new animated movie The Killing Joke in the only way we know letting someone smarter do it!
