What exactly is The Fluxcast? The Fluxcast might be about video games why not, right? Isn’t every podcast about video games nowadays? It’s a major form of media and a viable example of how we all enjoy wasting our free time. In fact the hosts of this show consume media in the same way you probably do and love to discuss it for your amusement. So does that mean this show is about everything and anything? You could assume as much but we like to think of it as friends across both sides of the pond just chatting. With the occasional euphemism misunderstood by one another due to geographic locations it makes for a fun time. We do love a good e-mail when they’re sent to firstname.lastname@example.org though. Feel free to write in!
Aren’t puns great? This episode James and Paul put on their game critic hats and try and review the latest game they have both purchased Forza Horizon 3. Spoiler alert, it’s very pretty. We also learn that we do not have a one track brain this episode and end up getting a little distracted.
Unfortunately, we are not live from the red carpet at the 89th Academy Awards, speaking to the actors and actresses that have been nominated to win one of these prestigious awards as we have not yet hit the big time. This week we try and present an in depth category by category breakdown of the upcoming Oscars, but very quickly realize that we did not watch nearly enough films this year so some categories get the short end of the stick.
Prepare for the most muted birthday celebrations you have ever heard! James, Paul and Thomas are all back together to celebrate turning the grand old age of one. In traditional FluxCast style the birthday celebrations last for all of about a minute before it is brushed under the rug for slightly more macabre topics. Macabre in this episode means death and more specifically Thomas’ death and even more specifically how if you can come up with a creative enough method of murder for Thomas then no charges will get pressed against you. It’s not all doom and gloom though, that would just make for a terrible birthday!
Ladies and gentlemen, boy and girls. You are all cordially invited to the Second Annual Fluxies. This exclusive event is equivalent to the Oscars and movies, the Tonys and theatre or the AMAs and music. Actually in all honestly this event is probably better suited being compared to the Razzies. But we digress, this episode is our homage to 2016 where we will be handing out awards to what we consider the best video games, films and television series of the year. So sit back, relax and prepare to enjoy the Second Annual Fluxies.
The terrific twosome, and the podcast as a whole, return. Excitement this week is high as, like Ross and Rachel, Paul and James are back together. Prepare for a deep dive on all things Canada, which in this case means the NHL, snow, discount PayPal and why it shall henceforth be known as England Lite. If that doesn’t get those ears opening we also discuss Japanese rugby teams, the one place you discuss the offside rule and Paul almost maybe gets us sued? We don’t know on that one though. Come at us lawyers!
Here’s Fluxy! Translation your hosts return after another long and entirely unexplainable absence. To make up for this absence the hosts, well Paul, have something special for you in the form of not one but two special guests. Ladies, gentleman and esteemed listeners please put your hands together for the “Idea Chucker” of Ninja Pancake Mog and the soon to be host of “How to fuck it” Totes. Together this ragtag group cover anything you could possibly think of, if your thoughts involve Nicolas Cage, the Texas State Fair and American cereal that is. Meth is just all natural.
Brace yourself for the most high octane potato talk that you may have ever heard. Your hosts are sending out a love letter to the humble carbohydrate and discussing the best preparations possible. Wondering what potato you should be eating in the summer? How about in the winter? Well look no further than this episode. Your hosts and the super special guest, the one the only Mr DJ from the G.N.A. Podcast, will break down all any and all potato based questions you may have. Ireland this is the episode for you! It’s not all starch though, a whole host of other topics are covered as well but they shall remain a surprise for your ears.
