In this mega-length podcast, the gang (comprised here of Chris, Beau, Jenny, Richard, JC, Randy, Cat and Harris) got together to give you the lists you’ve been asking for…what was the best of EVERYTHING in 2015. Well, maybe not everything. But a lot.

Part one of the podcast covers TV. We watched a LOT of TV this year. And if you want more of this, may I suggest you head over to Randy’s TV Dudes podcast episode on the subject as well.


Part two deals with comic books and we’ve got a bunch of great suggestions for you there as well. A token effort was put forward towards videogames but honestly, we acknowledge we’re far from prolific enough players to really judge. May we steer you towards Jeff’s  Rage Select podcast for the best video game reviews out there?


Part three is movies. And we really do range all over the place on this one. To top it all off, the songs you hear on the breaks and at the beginning and end of the podcast were some of the songs our crew told me were the best songs of the year to boot. So you can go check ’em out for yourself they were:


1- SOB by Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats from their self-titled album
2-Moaning Lisa Smile by Wolf Alice from the album My Love is Cool
3-Stressed Out by Twenty One Pilots from the album Blurryface
4-Raising the Skate by Speedy Ortiz from the album Foil Deer


In addition to these, the crew also recommends these songs:


A New Wave by Sleater Kinney
Get Away by Chvrches
Chateau Lobby #4 by Father John Misty
Crystal by Of Monsters and Men
I’m a Ruin and Froot by Marina and the Diamonds
Pricks of Brightness by Ratatat
Exes and Ohs by Elle King
Chlorine and Wine by Baroness
Addition by No Devotion
Lonely Daze by Kate Tempest
Sparks by Beach House
Baby When I Close My Eyes by Sweet Spirit
Hello by Adele


And please, if you’re going to buy any of these singles, videogames, tv shows, movies, comics or ANYTHING you heard us talk about on this podcast, do it through one of our Amazon.com links as we get a nice little kickback from the good folks over there.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
