Episode XV: Back Into The Somewhat Mediocre Swing Of Things

In This Super Sized episode Brad accidentally makes a date with two girls on the same night and wackiness ensues, meanwhile Ben and Tony have an argument and decide to divide the studio in half down the middle. Kevin Smith Guest Stars.

Also, no Kevin Smith.

Episode X, We Reach Ten Shows In A Spirit Of Reverence and Humility

EPISODE TEN! Can you believe it? We can’t. When Fat Robot Radio launched upon the world so many months ago, who knew it would explode into the world wide super-phenomenon that it has become? Way bigger than that movie about aircraft dwelling reptiles, and rightly so, as this week Brad, Ben, and Tony bring you the sort of high impact, thrill a minute, blockbusting entertainment you’ve come to expect from a low quality, poorly produced podcast of no distinction. Especially one that is distributed for free on the Internet. ENJOY!

Episode VII, We Begin To Learn Impressive New Roman Numerals

This week marks the last episode for a few weeks, and it couldn’t be more explosive. Yes, true, Brad, Ben, and Tony babble on and on about the usual pop culture trivialities, but the real fun gets started in the second half of the show when the boys are joined by THIS WEEK’S VERY SPECIAL GUEST! Tantalized? I hope so.
