Things are gonna get topical! Andrew Rizzitello returns to debate Chris about the press coverage of the president’s remarks about the military, and where their biases and beliefs land on the issue. Thankfully, after a semi-serious discussion, the guys talk about fun stuff like OnlyFans, sex work, getting paid and things that are far less cringe-worthy than news media and politics.
Chris and Jack reconvene to recap the high and low of their Friday hangout. First, they review Bill and Ted Face The Music and talk about what the franchise has meant to them. The guys then celebrate the career and impact of Chadwick Boseman, from his portrayals of real life icons to headlining one of the biggest superhero films ever.
Chris returns with another solo show to rant while being unencumbered by guests or a co-host. He shares the relief of a week long break from social media, takes a closer look at the reopening of movie theaters, and adds more observations (and frustrations) about the ongoing pandemic and the anti-mask attitude taken up by the selfish and entitled among us.
Chris is joined by Andrew and Sherrie to chat about all sorts of musical subjects. Chris shares his unpopular opinion about Jimi Hendrix, Sherrie and Andrew talk musician biopics, and everyone debates superior cover versions of songs as well as the best covers of all time.
Chris and Jack are finally in the same room together as they recap basically all the movie news there is these days. In addition to pining for a time when they could go to a movie theater to see a summer blockbuster, the boys share their enthusiasm for Bill and Ted Face The Music, give their opinions on the VOD release of Disney’s Mulan, and predict the fate of other tent-pole features and when we can expect to see movie theaters reopen in the United States.
Chris and Jack are once again joined by Ryan Taggart for a discussion about their collecting habits as well as fandom in general.

Jeff Schnitzer joins Chris in his CAPE debut where they cover all manner of topics, including their frustrations with the continuing pandemic.

The “Triple O” threat of Chris Aballo, Jack DeFranco and Andrew Rizzitello descends upon your ears to bring them 81 minutes of happiness. The boys reminisce about the early days of The Only Podcast That Matters, discuss the genius and influence of Howard Stern, and how they all became SiriusXM subscribers. Then it’s on to the main topic of the episode, which is how the DNA magic of Ancestry has taught them a surprising amount about their ethnic backgrounds compared to what they grew up believing.
Chris and Jack are joined by Cory Noyes to talk about his recent bariatric sleeve surgery, including all the work that led up to the procedure as well as everything he’s done in the last few months to continue his weight loss journey. Chris and Jack also bemoan their weight gain and lack of activity (again), and Chris closes out the show by sharing the story of two harrowing incidents he experienced.
Chris and fan favorite Dan Hemphill reunite for a look back at high school and how they can’t fathom that 20 years have passed since their graduation.
