CAPE 199: Steeped In Heat

Joe Rogan!  Spotify!  Dave Chappelle!  Cancel culture!  Performative outrage!  Chris, Andrew, Ryan and Christian ponder what all the anger is about as they attack and/or try to understand the problems with modern madness.

CAPE 198: Throw Your Notes Out

Andrew and Ryan join Chris and Christian in their 2022 debut. Chris is compelled to give further explanation for the show’s long hiatus and gets derailed along the way (of course), leading to conversations about celebrity encounters, the origin story of a long-gestating group space opera, what ways Christian should produce one of his films, and the importance of committing to the bit.

CAPE 197: A Burnt Condom Filled With Gasoline

To kick off CAPE in 2022, Chris is joined by Ming Chen, Christian Cordes and Mike Zapcic for all manner of hilarity.  They dig into (what will hopefully be the last discussion about) the infamous Oscar slap, how a man claimed he used to be Chris, the time Mike took on a fast food giant, people from your past showing up in your life again, and Ming’s unique relationship with a Midwestern liquor.

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.
