In the pilot episode of Love Is…, Cassie and Justin debate the merits of Myths and Origins to decide whether cold hard scientific data or the stories we tell get us closer to what love, ultimately, is. Join them for laughs, some stone cold truths, and maybe a couple of Dad jokes. Love is here. Let’s get into it.

“Families can be hard but they are so worth fighting for.”

Stop us if you heard this before: A movie about an unlikely group of people saving the world from killer robots. You’d think with the amount of times this type of movie has been done before that there would be no way to tell us this movie in a fresh exciting way. Well we were wrong! This week on Talkin’ Tuong join Tuong and Overlord Robot A.I. Meghan Murphy as they talk about the latest movie from the minds behind Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse and The Lego Movie – The Mitchells vs. The Machines!

Oh you thought we were done ranking first names? We have barely begun…
We’ve done Ryans, we’ve done Chrises, it was only a matter of time until we reached a point to ranking the glorious name that is…Steve! This week join Tuong La and Stupendous Steve Experts Desiree Connors Warmington, Geoff McBride, and Leslie Cserepy as we spend a (very) long time arguing and ranking Top 5 Steves! 

A brand new podcast all about love!
In love, looking for love, done with love, don’t even know what the hell it is? Same. Join us, your hosts Cassie & Justin, as we navigate our own personal love stories while searching for meaning in the wide, undiscovered world of love. From rom-coms to marriage from its origins to where it’s headed, we do the legwork to define love for all. Full of humor, storytelling, special guests, and even science we get to the bottom of what love is, how to find it, and how to fall in love with anyone(?).

“Get over here!”

A good movie adaptation of a video game is really hard to come by since…well ever. From stinkers like 1993’s Super Mario Bros. to Resident Evil to even the new Monster Hunter movie, Hollywood struggles to capture what makes these games so special in the first place. So join Tuong La and Earth Realm’s Champion Katie Pagnucco (Improv College) as they discuss if the new Mortal Kombat movie is a “Flawless Victory” or gets put in the ever growing pantheon of bad video game movies.

If there’s one Disney movie you’ve never seen, it’s probably The Black Cauldron, and it’s worth a watch to understand why. This film has got it all: magic pigs; inconsistent accents; sacrificial sidekicks; glowing orbs that have nothing to do with the plot. Tune in as the Dummies unpack this head-scratcher of a story and take a deep dive into one of Disney’s greatest unsung heroes: Gurgi.

“On your left…”

Hey look we all love Captain America in the P0dCavern (at least Tuong really does) so was it a surprise that we’d be talking about this show? So join Tuong and Evil Captain America Taylor Fleming as they do a series review of Disney’s second MCU show – The Falcon and the Winter Soldier!

Tell us when…

Look, we’ve done a ton of food episodes on Ranked but we have often glossed over the unsung hero that are condiments. Condiments can make or break a food by giving it that little extra zing that you were missing. It can also turn a random assortment of green leafs into a helluva tasty salad or a dry piece of chicken into a mouth watering delight. So join Tuong and The Sonar Network/That’s How I Remember It ‘s Michael Mongiardi, Raul Delgado, and John Richardson as they give you a nice heaping dollop of fun in the form of Top 5 Condiments!
