  • 535. How Would We Impress Shania Twain?

    48:06
    Smart guys, good looking guys, guys with little machines - these things do not impress famous Canadian-Italian Shania Twain but maybe the three biggest knuckleheads in podcasting can figure out what (or who) will impress Shania Twain. Could it be a himbo? Or a loathed toad of a man? And does it change anything if Shania stubbed her toe at the start of the song? A lengthy discussion about doodads and contraptions is had and make sure you all marvel at the inventions Duscher, this generations greatest inventor, comes up with. Arise Sir Wife, it’s time to get our floppy rocket into outer space.Links to everything in our linktr.ee including our terrible merch, social media garbage and where to become a subscriber to Bad Brain Boys+
  • 534. Could You Survive Being a Yes Man?

    59:37
    Can you believe it? Three drinks! Joel Duscher has not one, not two, but three of the same goddamn drink that he’s going to slurp down during the duration of this episode. He has truely gone maniac mode for this episode celebrating the 2008 Jim Carrey classic, Yes Man. From trips to Hawaii to seeing Biblically accurate angels, the boys are opening themselves up to the universe and seeing what it provides. It’s mostly a little cake with our morning coffee and getting into massive debt before devolving into a bit about living in the sewers, eating rats and mocking the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for being stinky. At one point we were a pop culture podcast, when did it change? Head on over to our YouTube channel to let us know and while you’re there you can see if JD slurps down those three delicious cans of passionfruit flavoured Mt Franklin sparkling water.Links to everything in our linktr.ee including our terrible merch, social media garbage and where to become a subscriber to Bad Brain Boys+
  • 533. What Would We Do if We Had the Powers of Madame Web?

    59:52
    Oh me oh my, we can't wait for the upcoming and soon to be mega hit Madame Web in theatres the week we 100% recorded this episode! You can just imagine the reviews "Sony, you've done it again!" - the New York Times probably. "I can't believe this bed you made is so fresh, clean and not shat in!" - Film Fancier Weekly we presume. "The way they used the natural and inate precog abilites of a spider was both inspired and creative" - The Age we guess. "10 thumbs. This is our film of the year" - IGN. To celebrate such a landmark occasion of film hitting new heights, the boys have decided to have one of their famous thinks and try to imagine a wolrd where they too had the awesome powers of Madame Web. From catching spaghetti to helping out with lunch based choice paralysis to impressing our fellow party goers with our sweet number guessing trick, we use these powers to the max for the sweet reward of "oh yeah," and "yeah, that was pretty cool I guess? I'm gonna go chat to my friend Steve now. Steve!". No stone is left unturned when discussing emotional time travel, splitting yourself into four lads and then sending those lads off into the time! JD becomes confusingly immortal, Jackson pitches the world's first 80-tuplet show and Zammit makes himself a little statue for destroying everyone's little machine. Stay to the end for a wild take from Jackson, remember our YouTube channel has comments turned ON!Links to everything in our linktr.ee including our terrible merch, social media garbage and where to become a subscriber to Bad Brain Boys+
  • 532. Which Fairytale Curse Could You Just Body?

    49:12
    Everyone says hey, don't anger that witch or maybe you shouldn't wish upon a monkey paw but we're here to tell you that you have nothing to worry about! Piss off that witch! What they gonna do? Curse you? It's not even that bad! Sure, Disney will often go on and on about how being cursed is bad and it's often the major plot of all their animated films, but is it? Jackson believes he could just body being a toad and live out his best life, JD reckons being cursed to be a genie isn't so bad and Zammit just wants to live his best ape life. Listen in as we discuss what manner of beast a toad with the ability of human speech would look like, come across the man with the plan who hates genies and make one of the best cases that ignorance truely is bliss you'll ever hear.Links to everything in our linktr.ee including our terrible merch, social media garbage and where to become a subscriber to Bad Brain Boys+
  • 531. How Would You Use an Ape to Solve a Crime?

    48:05
    It's a strange day on the force as it's B.Y.O.A. (bring your own ape) to help solve the untimely death of the commissioners son. It looks like foul play but we have Mr Bojangles, the former smoking circus chimp, to help us with the case! From assisting in advanced interrogation techniques, to grooming us during a stake out, to helping prove we're not no cop in highly stressful undercover situations, there's not a single crime an ape wouldn't be useful. Listen in as the boys truely ape out and learn about some of yesteryears favourite ape based tv shows. Jackson believes his orangutang has a process, Zammit wishes he was a baboon boy and JD firmly believes apes has no moral conscience. It's good cop bad ape down at the cop factory, so let's all be glad apes don't have a gun.Links to everything in our linktr.ee including our terrible merch, social media garbage and where to become a subscriber to Bad Brain Boys+
  • 530. How Would You Use Flubber To Cheat?

    01:02:18
    It's 1997, a wacky and mad mannered scientist has created some kind of hilarious and maybe sentient goo! This goo is dubbed flying flubber by another of this scientists creation, a robot called Weebo. We do not go into the implications of that robot, the fact that it can love or that it kinda gave birth. That's not the purview of this episode. What is the purview is that this mad scientist uses flubber to help a basketball team cheat at basketball and we want to know what else we can use flubber to cheat with! From a terrible day at the races to a terrible day for one pizza delivery man, the worst brains in podcasting attempt to use this incredible scientific discovery to cheat their way to the top.Links to everything in our linktr.ee including our terrible merch, social media garbage and where to become a subscriber to Bad Brain Boys+
  • 529. Could You Handle Seeing Two Dogs Eat Spaghetti à la Lady and the Tramp?

    01:02:00
    Your favourite boys cannot believe their eyes! Did they just see two dogs on a date? A full on romantic evening? Slurping up spaghetti with human lips?? Surely not! But if they did, how will this affect their world view or will it simply wash over them like spaghetti off a duck's back? Listen in dear listener as Jackson regals us with an interrupted retelling of Lady and the Tramp while the Joels have a lot of beaver questions and horrible stories to tell. We recommend skipping from about 25:41 to about 34:35.

  • 528. How Would You Improve the Public Image of the Green Goblin?

    52:16
    Norman has a problem and no, it's not Goblin Madness, it's his public perspection. The good people of New York percieve him as a pumpkin throwing, skeleton creating lunatic and we here at Plumbing the Death Star want that to change! Join us on this journey of goblin-discovery as we attempt to fine tune Osborn's theme, embrace the military industrial complex and make promises to the voting public that we 100% can keep. Just remember everything we've said. We meant all of it.Links to everything in our linktr.ee including our terrible merch, social media garbage and where to become a subscriber to Bad Brain Boys+
  • 527. How Would You Market the Neuralyzer from Men in Black 1 to 3?

    49:59
    It's that time again where the marketing geniueses that are Plumbing the Death Star have to spin their wheels to sell a fictional product! This time they've gotten their grubby little hands on Men in Black's infamous neuralyzer. Sure it can wipe minds and probably shouldn't be used by anyone let alone the general public but let's see how they do! JD wants to speedrun therapy, Zammit forgets we can't talk to cats and Jackson spends too much time getting his mind wiped. After listening to this, you should go and listen to every episode of Plumbing the Death Star. Again. For the first time (please note, for anyone under 30 this is a reference to that MiB commercial I vaguely remember).Links to everything in our linktr.ee including our terrible merch, social media garbage and where to become a subscriber to Bad Brain Boys+
