Episode 186: Attack and Dethrone All Abusers



It’s pretty simple. Anyone who abuses anyone else should be held to the highest scrutiny available to us, the general public. That tends to be the “court of public opinion” and the highest scrutiny lately tends to be cancellation. That may seem cruel, especially since facts can come out later to muddy the waters of what happened, but we’re not investigators and we’re not attorneys. Our duties don’t lie in protecting those presumed innocent until proven guilty; that’s the court system’s job. Our duties lie in supporting those without power to the extent that may see justice rendered onto someone with power. It’s an uphill battle and it takes a lot of bravery to stand in the face of societal norms and fight that power differential. I know some people like saying “but it’s really the court’s job to render who is guilty and what is right and true,” but the court system in America has served the rich, powerful, and able way too much in recent days (Brock Turner, for example) for that to be true any more. It may seem harsh to cancel people on the whims of what could be called “mob mentality,” but for some, this is the only chance they have at seeing justice. It’s not always possible to show the receipts and have evidence that proves one thing one way or another. Sometimes, all these victims have is their words. So it’s time to start listening.

Also Nightwing is like, a decent hero. I mean he’s okay. He’s fine. He’s not great.


Episode 185: The ZC Patron Saint of Twitter Fights



It’s an all out Twitter Smackdown tonight on Zero Credit(s), and the patron saint himself is stepping into the ring to reign down some well deserved justice. Ron Perlman is just a master at the sport, and it’s an honor and a privilege to watch him work. Then we jump down the conspiracy hole for way, way too long and realize the truth about the culture wars being waged in this country. Did Zack Synder create COVID-19 to be able to recut his movie? Not entirely sure. Who knows. All I know is BEASTWARS KICKED ASS.


Episode 184: The Dragons of Hatsune Miku



The legends speak of the impossible – dragons have returned to the world and Hatsune Miku, the mother of dragons, is their master. Luckily, she’s across the world and can’t threaten us here, but it will only be a matter of time until she crosses the sea and tries to claim what she believes is rightfully hers. Luckily, John has a new fitness beer to give him the buff buzz he needs in order to withstand the fiery breath of the wraith of Quibi – and he’s dead. It’s up to Henry now to try and stand up to the likes of JK Rowling’s weird stance against transpeople – and he’s dead too. Wow, dragons are like…tough. I guess no one can stop Hatsune Miku. It’s all here, this week on Zero Credit(s)!


Episode 183: Black Lives Matter



No jokes, no bits, no funny business. This episode is a collection of information to support Black Lives Matter and be on the right side of history. After much debate, Henry and John thought this was the best way to utilize the platform and help through their voices behind the cause. Please listen for how you can help.


Episode 182: Release the SnyderAyerButthole Cut



Look, here’s the deal creators. We’re fans, and that means we’re entitled to the work you create to be done in a certain way. Our way. You have no say in this matter. *Cocks gun* It’s just the way the world works, creators. Us fans, well, we’ve got certain…means, to get what we want. You’re nothing without us. You don’t release the Synder Cut? Well. That’s a mighty fine DVD of Justine League you have there. It would be a shame if…no one bought it. Yeah, we’d do that. We wouldn’t buy your creation if you don’t curtail to our demands. Now let’s get this straight, Tom Hooper. You get back in that fucking editing room and you put buttholes on all those Cats. Or else, well, you don’t want to know what we’ll do. You ever heard of Twitter? Yeah, I thought so. We’ll hashtag all over the damn place. You want that on your head, Hooper? Now let’s get that weird teethed version of Sonic back in the movie.


Episode 181: Personal Deters aka Dinga Dinga Dinga



John has returned from Venezuela, but he is not out of trouble yet as the FBI are holding Henry’s dead dog hostage. Will Make-a-Wish kid, Allison, be able to turn the tides of the interrogation, or will it all turn out to be cube sketches in the end? Find out, this week, on Zero Credit(s).


Episode 180: Where in the World is JohndeJohn DeJohngo?



John is missing. We can’t find him. Luckily, someone did, and by someone, we mean a country’s government did. They’re keeping him safe for now, but who knows how long they’ll keep him alive. It’s up to you, the fams, to locate him by solving a bunch of geographic puzzles and history clues. So get to it, fams. Go find John. He’s in a red trench coat, a red hat, long flowing black hair, and he might be a woman. You know, as a disguise. Also, Hamilton on Disney+ on July 3rd and more Mandalorian talk!


Episode 179: Wife Check



John has gone missing. He’s not sick or anything, so don’t worry. He’s just not here. So to fill the J-shaped void of John, Henry’s wife, and also her own person, Jamie steps up to the couch to discuss what’s currently happening in the Henry and Jamie household. Mostly, it’s watching TV. But what kinds of TV?! A new Star Wars movie directed and co-written by Taika Waititi? Well, no cause it’s not out yet. How about some riveting round-table discussions of the Mandalorian on Disney+? Not really, because round tables are dumb. Well then certainly the Disney singalong and Stephen Sondheim concert? Technically only Jamie watched that and she has a lot of thoughts on it. Well, then what did you watch, huh? You’ll have to listen to find out on this special quarantine edition of Zero Credit(s).

Episode 178: Quibi or Not Quibi



Hello there, Quibidiots, it’s your boys Henry and John coming straight to you with the latest Quibinfo-dump. We’ve got all the fresh takes on all your favorite Quibi Shows, like Michael Peña Makes Pizza, Chevy Chase’s Credit Check, and Judge Teigan. Hold on to your Quibutts, cause it just gets more Quibigreat. We got Daniel Craig and Felicia Day Talk About Their Cats, Sam Rami’s 50 States of Fright, and Charlie Day’s Day, where Charlie Day just talks about his day. We’re going to cover all of these shows and more, because Quibi is the streaming platform of the futur– and my phone just died. So I guess we can’t watch the latest episode of Justin Roiland Sitting in a Room with No Microphone. Damn. Okay, I’m going to plug my phone in and then I guess we can keep going, but until then, Henry and John can discuss something unimportant like the impact of opening state economies too early or something.


Episode 177: John’s Alcohol Journey



What should have been a simple task has become an ordeal and now it’s all here for you to listen to, Fams. John simply wanted to tell Henry of the drinking he has done in the past couple of days, but what happens? The ole Henry derailment train pulls into the station. Wait. A derailment train? Wouldn’t that, like, destroy whatever rail is in front of it? So it would derail itself? How would it even reach the station? No idea.

John mentions an artist in this episode and then never says who they are, so we’re going to give a little shout out to Alex Schafer here in the description. Go check out his work!
