“That’s the Josh talking.”

It’s JKP’s 175th episode sort-of spectacular! Pour yourself a bottle of ‘Josh’ while Brandon, Eric, Zack, Josh, Harrison and Tom discuss Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the Nintendo news trifecta of Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS and the out-of-nowhere localization for Tomodachi Life. Then get ready to learn about Steven Universe and Patrick Rothfuss’s The Name of the Wind before we get to the real meat of this week’s special episode– lister emails and, making a bold return to the show, listener voicemails!

That’s right, JKPeers– voicemails are back.

To celebrate our 175th episode, we’re opening the floodgates back up and inviting you, our listening audience, to call in and leave a personal question, comment or criticism to be shared and addressed during the next podcast. Just call 714-340-5425, sit through the ringing and leave a message after the beep.


I know a lot of you newer listeners are upset that you missed this feature in year one of the show, so let’s give it another shot; if all goes well, maybe we’ll keep this open long-term. I can’t promise that we’ll respond to all of them, but I’m pretty sure we’ll get something special out of this one way or another.

Go nuts, you goofballs. (And rest in peace, Ultimate Warrior.)

Plus, as always: listener emails!

“I’m drinking and I’m new here.”

This week’s show finds Brandon, Eric, Josh and friend of the show/special guest Cody paying tribute to the late, great Harold Ramis. Things get nice and weird after that with a shift the possibly-secretly-being-considered sequel to Space Jam and comic artist John Campbell’s Marxist Kickstarter “meltdown.” Then, after the break, Brandon praises Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Josh revisits Dust: an Elysian Tail and Cody spreads some backroom gossip on Valve’s super secret VR headgear.

“See, now you’re drinking the Kool-Aid but you’re chuggin’ it through your butt.”

Then, after the break, the gang discusses the online phenomenon that is “Twitch Plays Pokemon” and the seemingly impossible-to-hate Lego Movie before letting Josh finally hold court in response to the sheer tungsten-scrotum’d audacity of Nintendo’s recent investors meeting. Plus, listener emails!
