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, www.manager-tool.com, 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 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”).)

Episode 46 of Upon Further Review!

This week we take on rockers, secret agents and obsessive dog walkers (we’re nothing if not diverse!) in Episode 46 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we call out Ikea for some possibly naughty behavior before getting into the meat of the show: first, we sit down for a meeting with the Boss as we review Bruce Springsteen and his album Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J.; second, we go underground with our review of The Bourne Ultimatum; and finally, we question how OCD one can be as we look at Amanda Banana: The Obsessive Dogwalker Video Podcast.  As always, we appreciate your suggestions and ideas for future review topics, and ask that you keep them coming–and yourself listening!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)

One more for the iTunes crowd…

We’ve finally managed to get a Quicktime version of our Norway film for all of you fine iTunes people…it is sizeable (about 200 megs), so if you’ve already seen the film or would rather download it later, feel free to cancel this download from your feed.  (But don’t unsubscribe…we’ve got lots of the normal sized material yet to come!  :) )  We hope this helps.

Episode 42 of Upon Further Review!

This week we celebrate the birth of a nation–at least, if you consider food, fireworks and celebrity fun part of a birthday party the way we do–in Episode 42 of Upon Further Review!  In this episode we welcome some new listeners to the fold before getting down to business:  first, we chow down with our review of the hot dog; second, we ooh and ah as we look at the art and science of fireworks; and finally, we shake our heads and laugh at ourselves with our review of VH1’s Best Week Ever.  As always, we appreciate everyone’s feedback, ideas, and suggestions…and hope you’ll let everyone else know where they can give the same!  (As usual, podsafe intro music is provided by Sharif (“You’re My Girl”), outro by David Henderson (“We Gotta Go”).)
