Episode 58: INTERMISSION (A Dog’s Porpoise)


(source: http://www.idw.org/dolphinfacts.htm)

Can Stephen accurately re-tell a story he himself heard on a different podcast, over five years ago? Will the other host ever introduce himself? Does either host know anything about porpoises? Expect answers this week (and apologies next week), on Check, Please!

Following in the trend of hyper-relevant pop culture commentary, Will presents: Skyrim The Episode. Stephen’s there too, but he mostly wanted to talk about Morrowind. A very special videogame episode!

Episode 56: INTERMISSION (Batman & Will Return)

Never more now than ever before has the Dark Knight been so relevant, so we spend roughly half this episode’s nearly hour-long runtime talking at cross-purposes about a Dark Knight Rises sequel starring Kevin James! We also talk about a bunch of other nerd stuff, and briefly touch on the topic of the podcast itself. Will Stephen’s mysterious headache evolve into anything beyond a passing mention? Tune in, and find out!

Episode 51: It’s A Gas

Well, we’re back with another episode where Will doesn’t really continue his coup despite only having a very limited amount of episodes before the end, but we -do- spend a lot of time talking about which Batman characters have gas! Also, another idea for a movie is given unto the world. Recorded on our actual technical anniversary! Happy birthday unto us.

We round off the first year of the podcast in style, by talking a lot about a TV show we’ve never seen and acting as kind of a spiritual successor to an episode we did six months ago! Will death come as promised to Check Please Island? Will our heroes finally remember how to make a podcast? Find out!

Episode 49: “Change”

A bold new vision for Check Please Island is put forth, and also we finally did another ad! Did Will deliberately “sabotage” an interesting premise for conversation that Stephen brought up just to do the “Ignition” joke again? Decide for yourself, as our two rusty podcast hosts (One of whom is a robot, I can’t remember if we brought that up?) navigate their way through the shadows of a new episode.
