Hyphen Nation - Episode #13: Lemonade Is A Popular Drink And It Still Is

Hyphen Nation - Episode #13: Lemonade Is A Popular Drink And It Still Is - Episode #13: Lemonade Is A Popular Drink And It Still Is

Back to back episodes? What fresh new world is this? Did the comic line reboot itself? Did Marty make the wrong move back in alternate 1985? Is anything we know actually the truth or is everything a crazy shamble of a lie? Anyway, Hyphen Nation is back and there’s lemonade to be discussed. I spend a huge chunk of time explaining why I had to go Anti-Beyoncé after the release of her new album… Lemonade. What a dumb title. I’ll tell you one thing… in the episode. After that I discuss Game 5 of the NBA Western Conference Finals and tonight’s Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals. I spend a little time reminiscing on my Shoe Dept. retail days and then try to explain cicadas for those of us not going through it. I even got a couple recommendations in there. So join the Anti-Beyoncé brigade (or #TeamHov), there’s only a few days left to hate Beyoncé for making music!

Hyphen Nation - Episode #12: When Jessica Met Wade That One Time In Seattle

It’s raining in Morgantown again but that’s no reason not to record the next exciting episode of Hyphen Nation! Back on my solo steez, I decide to go ahead and tell the tale I was planning to write for my Jessica Jones/Deadpool series that didn’t happen at Marvel 2000 because I don’t make time for writing anymore. I take the time to address the new Captain America controversy over at the house that Stan and Jack built, then I get into a little bit of why I “no longer” buy individual issues (other than Spider-Gwen and Archie). I had a great show topic… that I forgot to write down, so instead I go with my previous topic of why these kids like all this bad music… only to realize that someone 10 years older than me when I was in my 20s probably hated my music too… yeah, I got lost too. I spend a little time discussing how important Game 5 is for Stephen Curry and the Warriors tonight and then I wrap up my recommending and reviewing Drake’s newest album Views. Always good to get some work done, even if I don’t feel like the episode is one of my best. You can always listen to the episodes with Errick again if you want...

Hyphen Nation - Episode #11: Spoiler Spoiler Spoiler (Costarring Errick Greenlee)

I start the episode by myself, where I try to compare Shawn Michaels and Kanye West. Then I called Errick Greenlee on Skype, where we had a short conversation about our daughters and families off podcast, then we get down to business. But what I thought would be more fantasy booking turned into an all out discussion of Captain America: Civil War, which we both saw on its opening weekend.

This episode's cover image is brought to you via Errick's favorite Captain America speech, (which he feels was delivered badly by the film) which originally appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #537 for those Spider-Man haters out there. I wouldn't call this an all-inclusive review of the film but we get to a lot of it. In case you didn't notice, this episode is full of spoilers.
