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.
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.
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!
