“Yessss my master” *kneels down cowering*

Fictional villains often seem to have unlimited resources to fund their evil plans. Even though we, the audience, are taught to despise these villains, sometimes it’s hard to resist their wealth of cash, their nefarious moral compass, or their smarmy accent. It’s times like these when we wonder “What would it be like to work for this villain?”. Would they treat me well? What’s the benefits package like? Will I die horribly? These are the questions we ask on this week’s Ranked as Tuong La and Underling Candidates Taylor Fleming, Alex Toth, and Josef Addleman rank the Top 5 Best Villains to Work For!

Which fictional villain would you be a minion for? Let us know that and more ideas for Top 5 lists at ranked@podcavern.com!

Ground Rules

  • If could be rationalized as the villain in that world it counts
  • Anti-heroes count
  • They don’t have to be evil to the core
  • Measuring the chance of dying while we work for them. Also job stability, retirement, pension, your co-workers, etc.
  • We can work for them at any capacity that makes sense in that universe.
  • The position you are hired for has to be plausible
  • If it’s a different species than you can be a “minion class” of that world and species

“I used to be with it, but they changed what it was”

Summer is finally coming to a close and responsibilities of being an adult are starting to set in. But remember our “glory days” of our youth when we didn’t have a care in the world? When did we go from wild partying every weekend to going to bed at a reasonable hour, on a Saturday night, just so we can have early morning brunch with our parents the next day? This week Tuong La and “Super Mature” special guests James Beattie, Lindsay Gordon, and Laura Gordon age themselves and talk about the Top 5 Ways to Feel Like A Grown Ass Adult!

What ways make YOU feel like a grown ass adult? Email your thoughts and new Top 5 ideas here  – – > ranked@podcavern.com
