Henry’s back from vacation to cover as much ground as possible, so we gotta talk about this chess scandal. Vibrating anal bead computers? Boom, we’re there. With a vengeance. Did Niemann cheat in his defeat of Magnus Carlsen? That’s a question. Let’s explore. Also, James Earl Jones sells his voice for legs like in The Little Mermaid and John has a lot of Don’t Worry, Darling thoughts, all right here on Zero Credit(s).
Yes, it’s true. The Queen died. I know, I know, you’ve already moved past that fact and here we are dredging up the long forgotten past, but it’s true and we must face it. The Queen is dead. Luckily, we don’t really want to talk about it because we’re Americans and all, but the fact of the matter is the Queen died. And we must talk about it. For like. A minute. What else do we talk about? It would be improper to say in the face of the light that is the Queen’s death, so you’ll just have to find out by listening to Zero Credit(s).
You’ve asked for it and it’s finally, finally here: the Zero Credit(s) Supplemental Reading of the Spideredman who refuses to go home. What insights and tricks of the trade did the ZC Boys pick up on upon this rewatch of the final movie in the Spider-Man Home trilogy? You’ll just have to find out by listening, fams. All of our opinions and a couple of facts (and more) are right here, on Zero Credit(s).
It’s August 31st and you know what that means. That’s right, it’s officially fall. Gone are the hot 100+ degree days of summer and here are the [checks thermometer] 99 degree days of the fall season. Pumpkin spice is in the air as are so many cloves. And this fall, it seems a certain President of the United States is on a tear – finally doing some of the things he should have been doing the entire time. That and John explores the cultural phenomenon of “quiet quitting.” It’s all right here, on Zero Credit(s).
Henry is basically recovered and John is solidly back from Vermont, so it’s time to get back to work. Boy, are things upsetting. We tackle the big media merger that is the acquisition of Warner Media by Discovery, a move that honestly shouldn’t be too upsetting, but of course it is because CEOs are involved. Then, we pivot to the world of finance as GameStop, the once-upon-a-time errant knight is back again with a hairbrained scheme that seems more malicious than cool, which is to say, uncool. We’ve got that plus some extra, right here, on Zero Credit(s).
The Zero Credit(s) boys are mostly back this week with tales of their harrowing adventures through sickness and health. Henry’s sorta here after surviving covid (we edited out his coughs, to be sure), and John’s back from being in a different state, the state being Vermont. Not a lot of examining the zeitgeist in this one, folks. We’ll get back to the ole grind in a minute, but for now, let’s go over what happens when one has covid and when one visits Vermont. All, right here, on Zero Credit(s).
This episode was recorded last week – before Henry came down with Covid and John ran away to Vermont. So if things feel a little dated, at least you now know why. Henry’s been doing much better, by the way, and John’s still in Vermont. Regardless, let’s talk about Guy Fieri and his love of the band Rage Against the Machine. We also have some private jet discussion as well as a little update on a local alleged hitman hirer. All right here, on Zero Credit(s).
It’s the sensation that’s sweeping the nation: unimaginable wealth the likes of which the average person will never see in their life time. That’s right, it’s Mega Millions time! John’s been swept up along with everyone else in the country (where it is legal to gamble), and he’s dreaming big of what he’s gonna do with all his winnings when they eventually come to hi– and he lost. Whoops. Uh, this is awkward. Did…you guys hear about the chess playing robot that broke a child’s finger? No? Okay, uh, that’s what this episode is about then. Right here, on Zero Credit(s).
Wait, why are you leaving? This is a factual thing and I can prove it using the best logical of all – factual logic. That’s right, Henry’s back onto his insane theories of connecting everything happening today together in order to find the truth of what’s going on in the world today. No one can hide from his keen eye and questionable intelligence. So come on, join John for the ride, cause just like him, you are powerless to stop this conspiracy train from derailing all over the truth. Right here, on Zero Credit(s).
In 2011, a small company had a vision – to trick the elderly and confused into finding their movie in the bargin bin at the checkout of the local gas station and think it is one of the best action movies of all time (Fast Five). That company is The Asylum and the movie they made is 200 mph, a thrilling movie with “fast and the furious like” action that we had the unfortunate pleasure to uncover, and boy is it unfortunate. From terrible CGI to baffling plot and setting choices, this movie is a lot to take in, so let us take it in for you. Spoilers abound so do yourself a favor and watch this movie before listening to us tear it apart (out of love…for the genre).
