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).
John returns to the podcast to help Henry get to the bottom of this new Avatar movie only to crack open the largest well kept secret in Hollywood: James Cameron’s secret agenda that he’s been carrying out over the length of his career. Not much more needs to be said, but John does introduce the concept of GentleMinioning only for it to get banned by theaters the very same day. This is an all-timer, folks, if you only listen to one episode of Zero Credit(s) this summer, make it this one, right here on Zero Credit(s).
John is away for business this week, so Henry has tapped deep into the Zero Credit(s) reserves to scrounge up a guest. Friend of the show Jeff (@Gifsaidwrong) is here to bring us cheer. What delightfully fun topics does Jeff have for us during this very awful, no good, pretty bad time? There’s only one way to find out, and that’s by listening to Zero Credit(s).
