CAPE 161: Imagine Jet Li Pulling A Quarter From Behind Your Ear

Jeff Schnitzer sits in on the show so he and Chris can dive into how they will return to the outside world after being spoiled by grocery delivery and in-store pickup.  The duo discusses Coming 2 America, superior and inferior sequels, and how edited-for-TV movies misled them as young viewers.  Jeff also makes a surprising revelation about what he watches after his family goes to bed.


CAPE 160: I Need A Better One with Pete Murano

What does the title mean?  Listen to find out!  Chris welcomes back guitarist and cousin Pete Murano from Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue.  The two chat about their extensive family tree along with predictions for the return of live music, how it has felt to be off the road for an entire year, cooking for Instagram, 2021’s very unique Mardi Gras, and what happens behind the scenes on late night talk shows.


CAPE 158: I Can’t Eat Pedals with Sean Johnson

YouTuber and guitar gearhead Sean Johnson returns to CAPE for his third appearance to catch us all up on his evolution during the last year.  He and Chris discuss how virtual conventions don’t cut it, the ways 2020 re-prioritized Sean’s review videos, why Uncle Buck is the best John Hughes movie, and how teen shows don’t go as deep as they used to.  Plus, Quarantine This or That continues!

Check out Sean on YouTube!


CAPE 157: 52 Weeks Later

Since we’re approaching a full year since the pandemic and lockdown began, Chris looks at where we are today compared to last year, including how quarantine kickstarted the return of CAPE.  He gives a brief history of the show for those of you who have come along since 2020, plus he details future plans for the show’s Patreon and gives a quick review of the new Spongebob movie.


CAPE 156: Building The Universe with Ming Chen

At long last, Chris chats one-on-one with Ming Chen, star of AMC’s Comic Book Men and co-owner of A Shared Universe PodcaStudio.  In this lengthy episode, they do a deep dive into how Ming connected to Kevin Smith and became part of the View Askew crew, the events which led him to become a Jersey transplant, and how the Comic Book Men TV series came to be.  The two also share their perspectives on living in Los Angeles and celebrate the ways podcasting has opened up new worlds for them.  Ming is also the first victim of CAPE’s all-new Quarantine This or That!


CAPE 154: When Ornithology Goes Wrong

After chasing Andrew off the show with some ill-fated jokes at his expense, Chris follows up on his critter invasion from last summer.  He also finally shares some fan mail with Andrew and Jack, rants about the need for the recently passed stimulus, and the three rightfully tear apart the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame for this year’s nominees and snubs.


CAPE 153: Snowed In

Despite a massive snow storm pummeling the East Coast, the show must go on!  Aside from pondering the sudden disappearance of Jack, Chris and Andrew introduce the world to yet another “Chris” who’s also an engineer.  Criss Madd joins in on the conversation to talk about his band Serious Matters and how the pandemic has affected their plans.   He also makes the other two feel like they’re aging too quickly simply by being young, and the three bond over surviving the New Jersey winters.

Oh, and Andrew’s other show can be viewed here.
