The AudioShocker Podcast Network is officially retired! From October 2, 2007 to April 9, 2014 we released nearly 800 podcasts covering comics, movies, TV, video games, and tons of other fun weird shit.

All of our episodes and blog posts are still available. But there’s really no point in emailing the AudioShocker because we’re not producing any new content!

You can tweet us instead: @nealrs, @nickmarino, @mooncalfe1, @kayliesaurusrex, @workshop13, @kenny_riot, @79semifinalist, @oraculardream, @imaginetending

AudioShocker Podcast #245 – Real Shit

AudioShocker Podcast

Neal Shyam and Nick Marino

Justique Woolridge

Show Notes:
It’s the end. The final episode. After six and a half years of honest conversation, weird jokes, technical problems, and eating noises, we’ve decided to hang up our filth-soaked hand towel and retire the AudioShocker.

On this, our 788th podcast (recorded live in Neal’s Brooklyn apartment!), we talk about whatever the hell we wanna talk about. That means goofy NSFW stories and a little bit of AudioShocker nostalgia.

Nick also shares a personal recap of the 2014 MoCCA Arts Fest, with shoutouts to AudioShocker listeners and exhibitors Doug DeRocher and Delia Gable.

Finally, Justique delivers a live disclaimer over the end theme, and we play listener messages from Carrie Howarth and Michael a.k.a. dreadnaut.

A Pony Tale screencaps by Kaylie and Nick, plus Nick’s ALF screencaps

Show Notes:

See those wicked doodles up there? THOSE ARE THE WINNERS OF OUR ALF FANART CONTEST! In that order. Nick will contact you regarding your prizes.

We kick off our last Kaylie and Nick episode with some animation conversation about cheesy 80s and 90s American shows like The Shnookums and Meat Funny Cartoon Show, She-Ra, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, ThunderCats, Rugrats, and more.

We briefly discuss the final episode of ALF, though frankly there isn’t a lot to say about it. ALF says goodbye to the Tanners, tries to meet up with his friends from Melmac, and gets confronted by the Alien Task Force. THE END.

After ALF, we dig into something that generates far more conversation…

A Pony Tale is another confusing, padded mess from David DeCoteau. It’s a series of nature montages that’ve been extended into a full film thanks to a subplot about a girl, her horse Horatio, a financially troubled ranch, an evil land developer, a lucky horseshoe, and some serious head bashing.

Finally, we wrap things up by reliving some of our favorite moments from the past year of Kaylie and Nick podcasts. Thanks for coming along for the ride!

Also, shout out to Shut Up And Dance, who really know how to put together a classy album cover.

Allegheny Teen Center Reading Program #27 – …

Allegheny Teen Center Reading Program

Hank Andrews-McZewski and Nick Marino

Show Notes:

On the night of March 31st, 2014, the life of Hank “300” Andrews-McZewski was snuffed out after a tense standoff with Allegheny County authorities. Deeply saddened by the cancellation of the Allegheny Teen Center’s long-standing Reading Program, Hank barricaded himself inside of his beloved Teen Center and was shot to death by police officers who mistakenly believed he was holding hostages.

This podcast contains the last words of Hank 300, a passionate individual who refused to let the at-risk teens of the Alleghenies go without literature for their burgeoning minds. Never one to play it safe and pander to Teen Center parents, Hank continually pushed those around him by discussing provocative and thoughtful books that challenged the bland standards of the status quo.

Animatic Attack #11 – Beaver Knights

Animatic Attack

Fawndolyn Valentine, Justique Woolridge, and Nick Marino

Fawn’s Jack and the Cuckoo Clock Heart screencaps

Show Notes:

Fawn delivers a report about her special assignment to see Jack and the Cuckoo Clock Heart at the New York Int’l Children’s Film Festival. Long story short, she loved this French animated film.

After Nick talks about his failed attempt to score an advance review copy of Guardian of the Highlands (a.k.a. Scotland’s Sir Billi), we review The Critic. Justique wishes she could watch a higlight reel instead of the full episodes and Nick feels meh about it but Fawn finds that she still loves the show after nearly 20 years.

Finally, we wrap up our last episode of Animatic Attack with some sentimental shoutouts to the animation, characters, themes, humans, and other shit that made this series possible.
