Episode 60 of Upon Further Review!

We’re back after a long layoff (trip to Seattle, baby, the dog ate our homework, etc.) and ready to go as we review four items in Episode 60 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we welcome back guest star Russ as we take a look at four things: first, we hit a winner (we hope) with our review of Wimbledon; second, we shake our head at suburbia as we take a look at The KunstlerCast; third, we go searching (and finding) along with the fine people at Volcanicast; and finally, we wrap up the show with our look at the life and career of George Carlin.  As always, we appreciate your continued support, and as always, we ask that you continue to 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”).)

Episode 59 of Upon Further Review!

Once again we’re back with clothing stores, compelling candidates and crazy Brits (just kidding, they’re not that crazy!) in Episode 59 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we thank everyone for continuing to tune in, and address Greg’s guilty conscience about the recent release schedule, before getting into the main part of the show: first, we channel our inner geek with our look at the Jinx Clothing Company; second, we consider the audacity of actually liking a political candidate as we review Barack Obama; and finally, we discover the connection between independent music and organized chaos with our review of The Waiting Room podcast.  As always, we appreciate your suggestions and ideas, and as always, we ask that you continue to tell everyone about the show!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

Episode 57 of Upon Further Review!

After a bit of a hiatus (hey, take your complaints up with our newborn!), we’re back with a look at bottled water, cartoon mice and Dickensian stories (not quite the ABCs, but we’ll take it!) in Episode 57 of Upon Further Review! In this episode we thank our loyal listeners for their patience during our absence before getting into the meat of the show: first, we look at how buying water can make everyone thirsty with our review of bottled water; second, we step into some magic with our review of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom; and finally, we step into the past (or at least the past’s stories!) with our review of Mister Ron’s Basement. As always, we appreciate your continued support of the show, and as always, we ask that you continue to spread the word to others!

We’ve returned once again, and it’s time to ring in the new year with Episode 53 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we shock the world in revealing our New Year’s resolutions (okay, it’s not that shocking, but it is revealing!) and warn iWin of our displeasure with their latest action before moving on to the heart of the show:  first, we ask how big a scam artist you have to be to get in trouble for it with our review of vanity presses; second, we hook up our bounty hunter gear and blast off as we look at the Nintendo Wii game Metroid Prime III:  Corruption; and finally, we get all hip and musical (so to speak) with our take on The Stuart Bedasso Show podcast.  As always, we really appreciate your ideas and comments, and as always, we hope you’ll spread the word so others can join the smartest group of listeners on the Internet!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)
