Chris, Andrew and Ming congregate to talk about booze and so much more. Chris follows up on his recent trend of bad service, Andrew shares stories of men’s ignorance about the female anatomy, and all three guys design their ultimate bar.
CHRIS ABALLO’S PODCAST EXPERIMENT
Chris and Ryan return to Zoom as fluctuating weather forces the show to skip the studio this week. As they venture back out into a semi-normal world, the boys talk about their unusually short day at the boardwalk, Chris describes a car accident that nearly canceled April’s live show as well as his returns to New York City and concert-going, and Ryan finally goes to the movies by himself.
Chris talks one-on-one with Mike Zapcic about basically everything you’d expect: how he ended up working at Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, run-ins with various celebrities at conventions, how “Comic Book Men” came to be, and a lot of Ming Chen mockery. Chris also clarifies Mike’s side of a story told on an early SModcast episode and revitalizes This Or That with Mike as his latest victim.
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!
