Episode 50 of Upon Further Review has arrived!

At long last (and we hope this lasts long!), we are proud to present Episode 50 of Upon Further Review! Since this is a special show for us, we thought it only appropriate to take a special approach to it–and since this is show fifty, what would be more appropriate than to review fifty things? In thirty minutes?

Crazy, you say? Impossible, you suggest? Then it’s time you learn of the power (and insanity) of The Reviewers! In this show we review six colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple), six red meats (beef, lamb, venison, pork, ostrich, buffalo), nine different kinds of foods (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Thai, Ethiopian, Mexican, Italian, Irish), six pop stars (Britney Spears, Pink, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan), eight items suggested by listener “Classic Chris” (video game arcades, reality shows, Celebreality, Kathy Griffin, Clue The Movie, Aeon Flux,, Ronald Reagan), twelve games (Blue Moon, Bohnanza, Rack-O, Hoopla, Murder To Go, Cranium, Loot, Shakespeare the Bard Game, Lord of the Rings Trivia Game, Civilization the Board Game, Cribbage, Are You A Werewolf), two miscellaneous items (What Should I Do With My Life and Cirque du Soleil’s Wintuk), and one very, very important item, which gets the highest rating we’ve ever given–and you’ll just have to listen to see what it is!

We are incredibly grateful to all of the people in our ever-growing listener base for sticking with us and telling friends about the show, and look forward to many episodes to come. Special thanks to Drum Intellected for recording the intro to the show (and unsolicited!). As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”); the remaining music in this episode is provided by Top Johnny! (“Kick It We Are The Masters TJs ClubHouse REMIX,” “Surrender Let It Go TJs ClubHouse REMIX”).


Episode 50 in development!

Hi all–we just wanted to let everyone know that we are currently preparing Episode 50 of UFR, and it looks to be a doozy. We’ll have it posted sometime next week–please be patient, and we’ll try to make the show worth the wait!

Best to everyone,


Episode 49 of Upon Further Review!

This week we talk babies, baseball players and brazen skeptics (well, actually humanists, but we wanted another “b”) in Episode 49 of Upon Further Review! In this episode we make a special announcement (you’ll just have to hear it for yourselves!) before moving on to the main portion of the show: first, we look at the power of infant registries with our take on Babies ‘R Us; second, we celebrate the power of America’s national pastime as we review the World Series; and finally, we examine the origins of the universe (sort of) with our review of the Humanist Network News Audio podcast. As always, we’re grateful for your ideas and suggestions–and as always, we ask that you please spread the word about the show! (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)
