Episode 50: Still Going…!?

Here, today, is the release of Read The Manual’s 50th episode.

Almost two years of podcasting. Almost two years of being “The Podcast About Stuff!”

… why did nobody stop us when they had the chance?

As Doba and Ben go on to record their 50th episode they find themselves in a situation that requires them not only to face their past selves but also revisit the horror that was Read The Manual Episode 1.

As the two fight very possible odds (there’s not really all that fighting) and face deadly situations (there’s actually none of those, either), join them for what shall be known as a great milestone in absolutely nobody’s minds!

With guest appearances by Charmy (of the SSX Ubercast), Darkurai (of Darkurai’s Happy Let’s Play Funtime), KindKing01, and Youko (of multiple SMYN Network shows), this is an episode we say you’ll never forget, but we’re pretty sure you will almost instantly.

ENDING SONG: Here’s To You ~ Ennio Morricone/Harry Gregson-Williams

Also, next episode takes place at YOUMACON! We’ll be there, will you? If we have fans there besides the ones staying in our room, please tell us! … PLEASE! OH GOD TELL US SOMEBODY LISTENS TO THESE AAAAAAAAAAA

Episode 49: Sorry, You Cut Out

Named after the most uttered phrase of this episode, come listen to the one sided conversations of RTM as we’re joined by one of the writers of Sonic F and My Little Pony: Camaraderie is Supernatural, as well as the host of the upcoming fellow Network show N64Ever. Cyberlink420 is our guest this episode, and he brings with him a day of bad internet for reasons unknown. Not to mention Doba’s sick, Cyberlink’s more sick, and Ben happens the be the only healthy contributor this week.

We’re still not sure how that happened.

This week’s big topics include Canterlot Gardens, the Glory Gospel Choir, Royksopp, T-Pain, Double Dragon Neon, Dan VS, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The FP and why it’s the best movie ever, Boardwalk Empire, Doctor Who, Hanna, Wilfred, Gilmore Girls, DBZ Kai, MOTHER (Earthbound Zero), MOTHER 3, Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, the upcoming Sonic R grudge match between Cyberlink and Ben, Ape Escape, Sonic Adventure 2, F.E.A.R., Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Saint’s Row The Third, and Pokemon White 2.

ENDING SONG: Tricky Tricky ~ Royksopp

EASTER EGG(S): None this week, sorry

Next episode is our 50th episode AND the ending of RTM Season 2! WHO’S EXCITED? … NOBODY? OKAY THEN!

Episode 48: What Organization?

At last, their quest came to fruition and the dreaded/loved Super and Tony were finally brought to the mediocre lands of Read the Manual! Come watch as any type of organization we once might have had disappears into the wind like Dorothy’s house in a tornado and HOW DARE YOU MAKE AN OZ JOKE AT ME YOU BASTARD.

Episode 47: WTF Kansas!?

On this week’s RTM Youko and Swordhunter take time away from their busy schedule of not pointing out the flaws in Pokemon episodes anymore to come and talk to us about random crap! However, the major twist comes when Youko keeps dropping despite his internet being perfectly fine. So, in true Read the Manual tradition, we have nothing to blame but Kansas itself. God damnit Kansas…

Episode 46: BUT WILL SHE LOVE ME!?

We originally planned to have two guests this episode but it seems that’s really hard when you’ve got family weddings and family birthdays and family crap all weekend. So this week we’re joined by the air, the sounds of Doba’s garage door, and some dogs barking from down the street. No doubt some of the best guests we’ve ever had, I mean seriously. Not like we wanted Super and Tony. Nope, definitely not. Nope. NOPE.

This week’s big topics include Shaolin Jazz, Lazy Town, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, To Boldly Flee, Louie, Cheers, A Monster in Paris, Gravity Falls, Rhythm Thief, Persona 3, Persona 4: Arena, Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, Ty The Tasmanian Tiger, Super Mario 64, Super Mario RPG, the only English Final Fantasy II NES Cartridge ever made is sold for crazy amounts of money, new Splinter Cell game, Nintendo Power going out of print, Hyrule Historia kicks 50 Shades of Grey’s ass, Kingdom Hearts stuff, and the Persona 3 movie.
