Shenanigans Episode 72: Young Danny Trejo and the MySpace Herpes

March 22nd, 2019

We're back at it this week with more NSFW antics. We had the best of intentions to be on our best behavior, but that didn't last through the intros. It looks like the Marines were trying to do their part to help with the USC scandal, and imaginary friends are causing problems all over the place. MySpace accidentally deleted everything and no one noticed. Meanwhile, we learn of the futility of arguing with a 7-year-old.

Cast: Craig, Rich, Walden, Vinnie, Uncle Buck

Shenanigans Episode 71: Beware the Ides of March & Other Fine Print

March 15th, 2019

If there ever was a Shenanigans episode that was NSFW, this is the one. It's all because of some bourbon, and it just goes downhill from there. This week, we talk about angry hipsters, anti-vaccers, and reading the fine print. It's been decided that the Martians will be paying for a new "space wall" to help block some of the sun and we debate what the best DC-Marvel crossover movie could be.

Cast: Craig, Howie, Walden, Rich, Vinnie

Shenanigans Rewound: Back Where It All Begins

March 13th, 2019

Wednesday used to be George's day for publishing his articles. Today, I went deep into the Vaults for the very first episode of Shenanigans from way back in January 2016. I spent some time editing this episode to take out some background buzz and clear up the vocals. It's not perfect, but it is way better than what I had to start. This was  the first time we got together to put together a podcast. It all started with our daily Google chat that morphed into this podcast. We talk about everything, including George's cancer diagnosis. 

Cast: George, Scott, Craig

Running Time: 84 minutes


Shenanigans Episode 70: Hey George! What’s Next?

March 8th, 2019

Between recording this week's episode and posting it, we lost our co-founder, George, to cancer. We will carry on Shenanigans in his spirit, and we will all miss his wit, eye rolls, and infectious laughter. 

The Sandlot is making a comeback and so are cassettes. Why? We're not sure. Rich and Craig talk about their worst McDonald's experience from Sunday. Oh, the things they can make out of chocolate these days! And Rich pokes the bear with bad grammar and watches Craig lose his mind.

Cast: Craig, Rich, Walden, Vinnie

Shenanigans Episode 69: The Many Twists & Turns of Shenanigans

March 1st, 2019

We had high hopes of Gronk dropping by for a visit to our 69th episode. Alas, it was not to be. We did learn that while Rich is not our moral center, he does keep us focused. This show is all over the place. We start talking about one thing and go way off on tangents. With Howie, of course there is a lot of TV talk, including a fancy new Golden Girls themed cruise. Light sabre dueling is now a thing and grapes become flaming balls of plasma in your microwave, but don't try it at home.

Cast: Craig, Howie, Walden

Shenanigans Episode 68: Is This a SNAFU or a FUBAR?

February 21st, 2019

Yes, Valentines Day is over, but we found some naughty valentines from Disney. And some guy decided to sell himself to those lonely women for the holiday. He even had an a la carte selection of what options were available. Speaking of dating life, if you are a cattle farmer and have a lonely cow or two, there's a new love app for your cows and bulls. We get educated on the difference between a FUBAR, a SNAFU, and some other colorful metaphors for bad things taking place.

Cast: Craig, Rich, Vinnie, Miss Scarlett

Running Time: 90 Minutes


Shenanigans Episode 67: The Goop That Laid the Jaded Egg

February 15th, 2019

This week we start off with a little local baseball history that Craig thought George would find interesting. He didn't until after the show. Instead we end up on a long talk about sports, much to Rich's chagrin. So, we talk about movies, where Howie is the king. Coming soon to Netflix: Goop. We can't believe it either. And since it was just Valentine's Day, we discuss some special gifts you could get for your loved ones.

Cast: Craig, George, Howie, Rich, Vinnie, Charlie

Running Time: 67 minutes


Shenanigans Episode 66: Super Couponing Bowl LIII

February 7th, 2019

We start of and end this week's episode by talking about one of the worst Super Bowls in recent memory. There wasn't much we liked, from the commercials to the game to the halftime show. We did think that Gronk should have been named the MVP of the Super Bowl. Bridezilla is on the loose again, this time forking over $100 for a polygraph machine to test her bridal party. Meanwhile, a dude in India is suing his parents for giving birth to him without his consent. Seriously, we can't make this up. We have a lot of William Shatner news, and Craig and Rich regale us with their attempts at outdoor winter activities.

Cast: Craig, Rich, Walden, Vinnie

Running Time: 97 minutes


Shenanigans Episode 65: Clinging to Your Wienermobile

February 1st, 2019

The fearsome foursome is back this week. In a holdover from last week's episode when there were a lot of personal stories, we talk about being in the Boy Scouts and causing trouble as teens. Who do you think was the biggest hell raiser in high school? We talk about farts. A lot. Where do all the farts go on airplanes, and will you soon be able to track your own fart production through an app on your smartphone? There are new, groundbreaking techniques for flu prevention. And if you're looking for a new job, maybe you can drive the wienermobile.

Cast: Craig, Rich, Walden, Vinnie

Running Time: 80 Minutes


Shenanigans Episode 64: Our Daring Duo Saves the Day

January 25th, 2019

This is the show that almost wasn't. We've never done a show with only two hosts. However, with last minute cancellations, Rich and Craig were determined that the show must go on. This isn't your typical Shenanigans. There are a lot more personal stories here, although we do hit upon some of the wacky news that we've found. Do you remember your first car? Your first apartment? When you bought your house? 

Cast: Craig, Rich

Running Time 56 minutes
