CAPE 150: Chris and Jack’s 2020 Picks

In what is hopefully the last time anyone talks about 2020 for a while, Chris and Jack break down their favorite movies and TV shows from last year, along with a few to avoid.  Being them, they don’t just rattle off a list, they discuss their picks at length!  Plus, Jack recommends a few wrestling documentaries and Chris shouts out some albums which brightened up an otherwise dark year.


CAPE 149: WTF84

Chris is joined by Jack and Christian to have a spoiler-filled discussion about Wonder Woman 1984, two weeks after the rest of the internet shared their opinions.  Christian didn’t actually see the movie so enjoy his reactions as the boys share their thoughts.  There really isn’t much else to say without getting into spoiler territory so we’ll just stop the description here and encourage you to press play.


CAPE 148: …And A Happy New Year

2021 has finally arrived so Chris puts 2020 in the rear-view mirror with the help of Andrew, Ryan and Jack.  First, Chris announces the launch of the show’s Patreon page and breaks down those details, followed by a variety of topics including how the guys spent their Christmas and New Year’s Eve, the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine, news stories which deserved more attention, and celebrities we lost in 2020.  Happy New Year to all!


CAPE: The Quarantine Questionnaire Collection

To round out the year that was 2020, Chris has compiled all the segments featuring The Quarantine Questionnaire, a selection of questions meant to give insight into the personalities of this year’s guests (with some rude and inappropriate questions peppered in as well) and to make the ongoing pandemic a little more fun.


CAPE: The Best Of 2020

2020 has been mostly awful but at least CAPE has been here to give your week a bit of levity.  This collection gathers the year’s best stuff, from Chris’ one-on-one chats on surviving the pandemic to the many reunions of the crew from The Only Podcast That Matters to the latest episodes from A Shared Universe PodcaStudio.  Longtime listeners can revisit many highlights from this year’s run or this compilation can serve as a new fan’s primer for the world of CAPE.  Thanks for subscribing, following, liking and sharing!


CAPE 147: The 2020 Half-In-The-Bag Holiday Spectacular!

Pour a drink of your favorite holiday spirit!  Chris, Andrew and Ryan are joined by engineer Christian Cordes and special guests Ming Chen and Mike Zapcic, owners of A Shared Universe PodcaStudio and stars of AMC’s Comic Book Men.  As the drinks begin to flow, so do the stories of run-ins with the law, toys of Christmas past, best gifts they’ve ever received, mysteriously missing snacks and what the holidays are like now that kids are in the picture.  There’s also an incredible pitch for a new series, live interaction with fans during the livestream, a holiday toast and a spontaneous finale that’ll leave you buzzing.  Happy Holidays to all!


CAPE 146: Service Trees

Chris is back with Andrew and Ryan to continue the holiday lunacy.  Ryan has his house invaded by raccoons, struggles with hanging his Christmas lights and rallies for his own palm trees.  Andrew resists sugary drinks while Chris shares his concerns with setting up his parents’ new tablet, and they all pile on to words that make some women uncomfortable.

CAPE 145: Fisting Turkeys

After the bliss of eating leftovers and shopping deep discounts has worn off, Chris, Ryan and Andrew return to talk about their families’ Thanksgiving traditions. Then they’ll take your mind off this past weekend by diving into the rise of ASMR, what we can learn from a dominatrix, and George Clooney’s million dollar surprise.


CAPE 144: The Black Friday Bonus Episode!

Whether you’re up early to go shopping for deals or still in a food stupor after over-stuffing yourself yesterday, Chris and Jack are giving you this bonus show to help make this awkward Black Friday a bit better.  The guys share tales of their perilous years in retail along with how they used to be lured in DVD deals during the busiest weekend of the holiday shopping season.  There’s also a dash of Ryan to flavor this surprise episode.  Chris also makes some announcements about the next few weeks of shows, making this a pretty important extra helping of CAPE.
