The world may have put Broadway on hold for the rest of the 2020, but the silver lining is we got Lin Manuel Miranda’s groundbreaking musical on the home screen a year early! This week on Talkin’ Tuong, join Tuong and special guest Nivala Maharaj as they don’t throw away their shot to talk about the smash hit and global phenomenon – Hamilton (now streaming on Disney Plus)!

It’s-a-me, Mario!

Mario is arguably the most iconic video game character of all time. Over the last couple decades, this pudgy little high-jumping Italian plumber has shaped the hearts and minds of gamers across the world and has consistently pushed the boundaries of what video games could be. From platforming, to party games, to karting around, to playing every conceivable sport – this one character has found ways to Nintendo-charm its way to being one of the all time greats of pop culture! So join Tuong La and Ninten-Nerds Alex Toth, Brian Costa, and Dan Foerster as they eat a power-up mushroom and storm their way through Bowser’s castle while ranking a Top 5 Super Mario games list!

On this week’s Punch Up there’s no guest!? That’s right there’s no one joining Leslie and Angus in the PodCavern so they can relax and let their hair down. This week we see Mario and Luigi seek to find who put kale in their fridge, Georgie goes back for his boat (keen eared listeners might hear some kind of easter egg) and The Hardy Boys quit solving mysteries and live a normal life.

DADDY IS BACK IN THE BUILDING! Tuong has found his way back from god knows where to Punch Up some scenes with Leslie and Angus. Join us as try to figure out the chain of command, Wolverine goes on a quest to make himself clean, and we find out once and for all who is the real faker!
