The Charlton Heston impression Brad refers to in the Comedian episode is the opening line of this YouTube clip. Moses (Charlton Heston) is confronting Pharaoh Ramses II / Ozymandias (Yul Brynner) and is about to show the power of God for the first time to the gathered Egyptians.

Episode 19 – Tony Stark

This week we delve into Tony Stark, specifically the Ironman films and The Avengers. We go through his motivations, his style, and his personal philosophy. We also discuss how Tony Stark sees the role of Ironman in the world and how this compares to other heroes. Over the course of the episode, we make direct comparisons to Howard Roark, Captain Kirk, Lando, Kid Anakin, Thor and Batman. Eventually this all leads to a discussion of our differing thoughts on The Avengers film. Lots of spoilers from the movie are included.

Breakfast with Brad and Doug – 5/10/2012

As Brad enjoys his post-getting a Master’s bliss, he managed to get up at 9:30 to join Doug for some podcasting. After some nasal-voiced introductions, Brad recounts a prank he and some friends pulled the last night. This somehow leads to a discussion of Snakes on a Plane. After that, Brad and Doug talk about why bad movies do so well overseas markets. Doug brings up a fun and interesting conversation from this week’s Game of Thrones (there’s not any spoilers in here besides that three particular characters are in a room together, and the interactions with two of them). Then we jump into talking about Tony Stark in the main podcast.

As we get ready to chat about Darth Revan (well we decide to talk about him near the end), we have a few quick discussions. First, we discuss Brad’s wrapping of of grad school and how Doug has finished Clash of Kings so we had some fun dissecting that. We touch on the general awesomeness of Iain Glen and his new fancy blue scarf. This leads to a discussion comparing Shakespeare’s Histories(8 plays total) to The Song of Ice and Fire series. We talk about our pending Avenger’s nerdgasm, and Brad’s new Netflix obsession, Burn Notice. This leads to Doug bringing up the Worf Effect he loves so much, and eventually we wind up discussing the ad’s in the New York Subway.
