But are the culture wars largely phoney - and can we find a solution to the serious issues society is facing? From state-sanctioned hostile action to social media algorithms, party politics and innate tribal instincts, Alfred Landecker Foundation fellow and journalist Cat Neilan explores what is holding us back from making common ground. In partnership wit ...
 
Crazy Christians on the Sunset Strip is the Studio 60 rewatch podcast nobody asked for, hosted by comedy-industry-adjacent media titans Dan Neilan and Tim Sampson. Each week, they're joined by a guest as they suffer through Aaron Sorkin's failed attempt to depict the behind-the-scenes drama of a faux-SNL-type show from the mid-2000s. It's as bad as it sounds. The show, not the podcast. The podcast is good.

We're going way way back this week to the WWII era of the Billboard charts because our old pal James Dorsey has some more toot-toot-tooting to share with us. This time around, it's another song from a movie no one has ever heard of. We used to be a country damnit!By Number One With A Bullet
 
Metagaming is all about the game that exists within (and without) the game - it's everything that's not written in the rules.

Before we get meta, we talk about Rum & Pirates, Box One, Shamans, and C…
 
For their first episode back in many weeks, Andrew and Dan take a trip down the charts to discuss a song that never reached the coveted number one spot, and perhaps rightly so!

It's easy to get caught up in the cult of the new, but there are so many amazing games that came out before we were even in the hobby.

And stick around for even more special appearances after the show! Befor…
 
There are many ways that we can accidentally contribute to gatekeeping in the hobby - pushing those who want to embrace it away. Whether it's to those outside, or even, bizarrely, to those already in, we break down the subtle (and unsubtle) ways we do it, whether or not we mean to. Before we find the keymaster, we talk about San Marco, Gloomhaven: …
