It’s African dust season here in Texas, and it has laid low 50% of the podcast, but you know that won’t break their stride. In the final install of their much-beloved and mucho-belated World Kup Korner, Henry and John reveal the ultimate winner and infinite loser of the Game of Foot Champions. John then poses one of the greatest philosophical hypothetics of our time: “why won’t a Japanese person finish a cigarette?” And the answer, it may surprise you, is ASTONISHINGLY BANAL. Henry then destroys all of our traditional notions of what men truly prefer with the help of The Transformed Wife, and your views on debt, promiscuity, and tattooedness will never be the same. Get ready to blow it all up, this week on Zero Credit(s)!
Henry’s back from the mountain with some very secretive cosmic secrets to share that just might reveal a conspiracy that goes all the way to the top (of Colorado). How many times have you noticed John Denver’s Country Roads (Take Me Home) in media? Maybe a little. . .too much? Hmmm. John then steers us unto a much more serious matter about things we encounter every single ding dong day of our gosh darn lives, man. And that’s streaming services. Sounds like there’s a new one in town curtailed by the one and only auteur film director Nicolas Winding Refn , whom we all know personally and love. Take it or live it, fams. Oh and happy Fourth of July, you American listeners, you. Independence is just a big enough thing to celebrate that it almost just barely fails to eclipse all of the injustices and anti-freedoms that our country is performing on an hourly if not even more frequent basis. It’s a mixed back of snacks, filled with centers that will both uplift and depress you, but at least there’s still the World Cup to discuss for one more week. Will John’s team of Croatia beat Henry’s team of Englan–what’s that? Oh, Croatia won? Huh. Well. Find out the thrilling conclusion of the World Cup Corner, next week, after it already happens!
The World Cup of Soccer Games for Futbol Enthusiasts™ is continuing to kick off strong as we enter the end of the group stages and move on the the Group of 16. John is seriously upset about his poor choices of backing Peru and so he continues to make bad choices and backs Iceland. Both of which are eliminated on the same day. He then decides to go “all in” and back Germany, his favorite team. Let’s hope John’s pick carries him through the entire tournament to the covetous gold medal trophy. (Post-Recording-Script: Germany was eliminated from the tournament the next day). In non-sports news, Westworld wrapped it’s season two this past Sunday and Henry’s got all the hard hitting answers for those MiNd BlOwInG questions the season left us with. Are any of us actually in control of our destiny? Can any of us be so bold as to proclaim that? No one knows. What we do know is that the boys put on their flippers and snorkels for a good ole fashioned, family homemade, ranch style with a colonial twist DEEP DIVE into the third Austin Powers movie Goldmember. What hath post-post-post sequel film making wrought? We have what we like to call “it all” in this episode and we’re up to sharing it with you, now, on Zero Credit(s).
