The Question, Episode 76 – Spoilers, Sweetie

After about a month’s hiatus, we are back with Episode 76! In this episode, we discuss our travels, our triumphs, our woes, and diabetes. We then launch into a discussion on what makes a spoiler, in an episode that is, ironically, CHOCK FULL OF SPOILERS (depending on your perspective of course). Films & TV shows discussed in this episode: Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Sixth Sense, the Crying Game, Captain America: Winter Soldier, Agents of SHIELD, the Empire Strikes Back, the Simpsons, and Braveheart. The play the Book of Mormon also gets discussed in a way Melissa deems “spoiler-ish,” though Sean does not..

In our next episode, we will be looking at movie-watching hypocrisy by examining the question, “WHY ARE WE SELECTIVE IN OUR SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF?” In other words… why do we dismiss most action films as being bullshit because they lack “realism,” and yet embrace films like Die Hard that are every bit as unrealistic? Or, why do we condemn the “nuclear fridge” in Indiana Jones 4, but turn a blind eye to other ridiculous premises in the franchise (life raft parachutes, anyone?)? How do we justify this?

As always, we look forward to hearing your thoughts! You can e-mail us at thequestionpodcast (at) gmail (dot) com, or you can leave us a message on The Question Line at (347) 9ASKUS9 ( (347) 927-5879 ). Please have any feedback in by Sunday, May 25th at 10pm EDT (roughly Monday May 26th at 3am UK time) to guarantee your place in the discussion.

MICROBOBS 01 – Oh My Godzilla

godzilla1 copy

In what was intended to be the first of a new strand - Microbobs - that brings short, quick casts between the main show, Mr Jim Moon completely fails in that objective and talks for roughly a hour and a half about the new Legendary Pictures version of Toho’s classic monster Godzilla, directed by Gareth Edwards. This monster-sized ‘cast comes complete with a potted history of the Big G, a lengthy spoiler-free review, and a spoiler-tastic closing section for all who have seen the movie already.

The Question, Episode 75 – So Long, Farewell, Aufwiedersehen, Now Leave

In Episode 75, we discuss an uncomfortable true story of equine love, consider a Kickstarter to fund a musical of a classic Patrick Swayze film (no, NOT Dirty Dancing), and tackle the question of how to nicely tell company to leave when they’ve overstayed their welcome.

We will be away for the next two weeks, but will be returning to record on Saturday, May 17th (or possibly, that Sunday, the 18th… you know how we do). When we return, we will be returning to the topic of spoilers by asking, quite simply: What, EXACTLY, is a Spoiler? Considering we already did an episode on spoilers, and where the responsibility lies on social media (Episode 9), you would have thought we would have defined exactly what a spoiler is. Perhaps we did, but recent memes and social media discussions have made it seem as if the definition of “the spoiler” is expanding. So, we’d love to know what, exactly, you consider to be a spoiler (and how do we stop or avoid them)?

As always, we look forward to hearing your thoughts! You can e-mail us at thequestionpodcast (at) gmail (dot) com, or you can leave us a message on The Question Line at (347) 9ASKUS9 ( (347) 927-5879 ).

The Question, Episode 74 – Digital Lies

In Episode 74, we talk about little white lies and how modern technology limits our ability to tell them (and whether that’s a good or bad thing). Despite this being one of the shortest episodes we’ve done, we manage to discuss a second helping of literary serendipity, poor transit choices, and self-induced musical sadness, along with a listener submitted What Do You Think of That, and of course… this week’s Question.

Next week, we look at the art of hosting, and ask an important social etiquette question. If you’ve had guests over on more than one occasion, you’ve no doubt run into the situation where a guest (or group of guests) simply doesn’t know when to leave. Whether they don’t pick up on your cues, or fail to recognize that everyone else has called it a night, they simply manage to overstay their welcome. Because they may be a friend, or even a relative, the art of telling them to hit the road can be a tricky one. So, in our next episode, we’d like to know, What is the nicest way to tell company to leave?

You can send e-mail to thequestionpodcast (at) gmail (dot) com, or you can leave us a message on The Question Line at (347) 9ASKUS9 ( (347) 927-5879 ). Details for our Twitter and Facebook Group are on the Contact Page. We look forward to your feedback!
