Join the Schmanelists at the Tuscon Sci-Fi convention TusCon—dedicated fans of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. This episode is has the team discussing the eternal geek hypothetical: Who would win? It’s Chewbacca vs. Sweetums, Captain America and Mr. Rogers (in a ‘nice-off’) and many more, including Kate’s very, very dark joke about Abraham Lincoln.
What our Schmanelist panel do with a windfalls of various size? Caveat: It must be wildly irresponsible. $500, $1,000, $100,000, a million … and one billion dollars. Music studios with dungeons, dragons, and assault with a delicious weapon … sometimes at the same time. Featuring some high-quality cackles, and mechanical poop sounds.
Three schmanelists who are also improv performers deliver their take on musicals. There’s a surprising amount of murder for an episode where Steve mostly stays quiet, David breaks into song on a regular basis, and a critique of Daniel Radcliffe’s butt. (Spoiler: It’s pretty great.)
Life in our solar system is real! And the schmanelists detail the tiny whales, cannibalistic crustaceans, and naked space hamsters that inhabit each planet. Also, some frantic Google searches to remember our 5th grade science classes. We are “non-experts” after all…
Join us for hypothetical hilarity as three schmanelists are asked somewhat silly What If questions. Sometimes we get serious. And occasionally Rachel the Moderator gets horrified. (And then she might shoot someone with a Nerf gun. We all have our ways of coping.)
We also learn something mildly educational every podcast! And when we don’t know something, Shawn gets to look it up for us. You can check out his homework on each episode’s blog post.
You can submit What If questions of your own with our Contact form. We reserve the right to choose or ignore them as we please. Especially since we’re trying to keep this clean. Cleaner than under your couch, at any rate.
