CAPE 196: The 2021 Half-In-The-Bag Holiday Spectacular!

Chris is joined by Andrew, Jack, Ming Chen and Mike Zapcic for a holiday-oriented finale which has very little holiday talk. The guys discuss the lack of excitement around this year’s Black Friday, share early album purchases, roast everyone who was invited but didn’t show up, and spend an inordinate amount of time discussing one of teenage Mike’s early girlfriends.

Happy Holidays and Happy 2022 to all!

CAPE 195: Uninstalling Andrew

Andrew returns to join Chris and Christian for the second to last show of 2021.  Andrew talks about finishing his year as head of his Freemason lodge, Chris apologizes to a certain Midwestern state, and all three talk the third Boondock Saints film, question younger generations’ fashion choices, and share their common experience of receiving increasingly bad service.

CAPE 194: From The Archive – Volume 2

Chris opens up the CAPE archive once again to present you with another an hour of Patreon exclusive audio and a never-before-released debate in Volume 2 of the From The Archive series.  PreShow bits with guests including Doc Coyle, ZouZou Mansour and Mike Zapcic play alongside nonsense from the usual crew of Chris, Andrew, Ryan, Jack and Christian in another episode of hilarity.

CAPE 193: The Return Of Loudmouth and The Big Kahuna

Chris and Christian team up yet again to spend this episode defending Iron Man 3, identifying Christian’s godfather, spitballing ideas for a new classic monster universe, sharing an appreciation for vinyl and other physical media, revealing small details about Clerks III, and explaining the death and resurrection of Christian’s upcoming holiday album.

CAPE 192: Da Tree Tenors

Chris is joined by Ryan, Jack, Christian and returning guest Mike Zapcic.  The guys pitch a Ray Liotta Christmas album, explain the origin of Chris’ Tony Danza impression, and debate the worst candies.  Mike also shares tales of Catholic school trouble-making, Ryan tells Mike the story of the first time they met, and everyone roasts Ming Chen by mercilessly impersonating him.

CAPE 191: From Jersey To Bad Wolves with Doc Coyle

Chris talks one-on-one with Doc Coyle: guitarist formerly of God Forbid and currently of Bad Wolves.  The two Jersians weigh in on the existence of Central Jersey, recount the local music scene in the late 90s and early 2000s, and share their excitement for the return of live music.  Doc also talks about on the legacy of God Forbid, the importance of representation, opening for Metallica, touring with OzzFest, the new Bad Wolves album Dear Monsters and the origin of his podcast The Ex-Man with Doc Coyle.

CAPE 190: Be Happy Or Be Right with ZouZou Mansour

Chris talks one-on-one with ZouZou Mansour, the heart and voice of Soraia.  The two discuss staying sane and engaged during last year’s quarantine, how performances look versus how they feel, and the importance of showing up for your ambitions everyday.  Zou Zou also shares her experiences of writing songs with Jon Bon Jovi and Steve Van Zandt, how the band’s first tour of Sweden came about, and Chris subjects her to a round of CAPE This Or That.

CAPE 189: May Contain Whiskey

Chris kicks off this week’s show with some announcements about the rest of the year, because there isn’t a whole lot of 2021 left. Then he opens up the archive to bring you two episodes of a whiskey tasting show which he and Andrew did back in May, along with Adam Reich in his CAPE debut. These never-before-released chats will boost both your liquor knowledge and happiness.

CAPE 188: Someone’s Ideal White Boy

The gang returns to A Shared Universe PodcaStudio as Chris, Ryan, Jack and Christian talk a lot about movies – terrible movies that are actually great, jokes they didn’t get as kids but now understand as adults, and why there aren’t too many memorable films these days.  Chris also digs into his return to the delivery app workforce, his parents’ recent change of heart and an incident at a restaurant that left him feeling old.

CAPE 187: FortyCast

This week is Chris’ 40th birthday, so he does a solo show to speak candidly about the turbulence of his 30s – the rise and fall of The Only Podcast That Matters, his difficult six year stint in Los Angeles, and getting to a point when he was ready to give up his creative pursuits – only to have so much come about in his 39th year in a way which gives perspective to all those experiences.  It’s a story (and an episode) 10 years in the making!
