Read the Manual & the SMYN Network: The Year in Review

OOPS there’s no full RTM this week. Doba was painfully busy editing Red Carpet, helping with GOTY, and hosting the 24 Hour Cast. So that happened. That all happened. That all happened and it all happened at once.

Instead, take this bit that ended up being WAY too long for the GOTY. It’s RTM and the hosts of the other Network shows talking about their years in music, movies, and games. Think of it as a mini RTM and we’ll see you next cycle with RTM 55.

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 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.

This week’s big topics include They Might Be Giants, To Boldly Flees, Dead Space movie, Batman: Gotham Knight, Alien, The Office, Adventure Time, Dragonball/Dragonball Z, Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori, Boardwalk Empire, Mario games, Louie, Between Two Ferns, Back to the Future, Donkey Kong Country 3, Psychonauts, and Animal Crossing.

GUEST APPEARANCES: Super and Tony (of Show Me Your News!)

ENDING SONG: The Statue Made Me High ~ They Might Be Giants
