Episode 52: Ben is Ready

He’s ready guys! Ben is ready! He is so ready! Ready doesn’t even begin to describe it! A slow couple weeks has gone by for Ben and Doba but that’s not gonna stop them from making a sub par show about it. It’s been awhile since we’ve had just the hosts on the show, so they decided to go ahead and not have a guest this week. Yeah, uh… sorry Moses? OH WELL MAYBE NEXT TIME.

Not to mention we have a special  announcement about this year’s 24 Hour Cast! Tune in to find out about it!

This week’s big topics include the 24 Hour Cast, Supercar, Zach Galifianakis, Steam Powered Giraffe, DayZ Hardcore, ProJared, Game Grumps, Desert Bus for Hope 6, Doctor Who, Ping Pong, Malcolm in the Middle, Mad Men, One Piece, Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Professor Layton & The Miracle Mask, Journey, Visual Novels, Project M, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Doba’s new job, Merry Gear Solid 2, and Hostess closing.

GUEST APPEARANCES: N/A

ENDING SONG: Thrift Shop ~ Macklemore

EASTER EGG(S): Christmas Talk/Ben’s Ready

Episode 51: [UNSPECIFIED DETROIT EVENT]

We just got back from our vacation in Detroit, Michigan for the second year in a row! What a place for a vacation, eh? We were there once again for [UNSPECIFIED DETROIT EVENT], and this year the amount of SMYN Network peoples joining us DOUBLED. Of course [UNSPECIFIED DETROIT EVENT] went about how you’d expect, nobody recognized us or came to our panel AGAIN (wait we had a panel when was this) because we totally had one (we most certainly did not), so it was obviously a total bummer!

Except it wasn’t! [UNSPECIFIED DETROIT EVENT] was a blast once again! We can probably get a bit of a post about our experience somewhere but we got to meet people like Doug Walker, Linkara, TeamFourStar, and LittleKuriboh, we got to see Steam Powered Giraffe live in concert, and even attended panels lead by two of our fellow Network shows (Show Me Your News! and WTF Pokemon!?)! Not to mention the best part being sharing the best hotel room ever with Darkurai and Peofun1, both of whom have probably been on the show more than any other guests in RTM history. So we figured, let’s have them on again!

This week’s big topics include Youmacon (of course), mash-ups, Steam Powered Giraffe, more Youmacon, Once Upon A Time, Pom Poko, Only Yesterday, Alfred Hitchcock, Nightmare on Elm Street, Red VS Blue, Wreck-It Ralph, more Youmacon, Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Professor Layton & The Miracle Mask, Mount & Blade, more Youmacon, Halo 4, and even more god damned Youmacon.

WE LIKED YOUMACON, OKAY?

GUEST APPEARANCES: Darkurai (of Darkurai’s Happy Let’s Play Fun Time) and Peofun1

ENDING SONG: Jordan ~ Buckethead

Oh, and on our way home from Detroit Ben and I started thinking about some other cons we might be able to attend in coming years! We’re honestly looking for ones we wouldn’t have to fly out to, we’d prefer one that would give us an average length road trip.

So if you want RTM to come to your local convention (protip: you don’t) then help us out and shoot us some suggestions. We’d love to hear them.
