Joining us this episode is long-time Sigler fan Aaron Singerman, the CEO of RedCon1, and fitness blogger Arielle Singerman. Aaron talks about his own struggles with addiction, and how Scott’s podcast was one element of his recovery.

EARTHCORE Q&A Part 1

The FDØ and ARealGirl get down to the nitty gritty of your questions. So many questions! We talk about EARTHCORE, of course, but also questions about GFL, THE CRYPT, MOUNT FITZ ROY (of course), and more.

EARTHCORE Episode #40

Patrick O’Doyle is badly wounded, but Bertha Lybrand is in even worse shape. Her KoolSuit has failed and she’s dying of heat exposure. They just came across Angus Kool, who is tied up with copper wire after being tortured by Kayla Meyers. He is helpless, at O’Doyle’s mercy. Kayla is farther down in the tunnels, in the ancient tracking down Connell Kirkland, who is carrying her bullet in his leg. Kayla needs to finish him off before she tracks down Veronica Reeves. Veronica is inside the ship, about to lower a bomb deep into the earth … a bomb that will kill everyone.

My Bloody Valentine

StorySmack Episode #46

Happy Valentine’s Day Junkies! We’re doing our best to stay on-brand and still celebrate love. You know, like the love of a great 80s slasher flick!

Scott & A sat down this week to watch this 1981 horror … classic. It comes out pretty early on in the 80s slasher heyday, and it’s full of all that goodness: goofy plot devices, loads of teenagers sinnin’, plenty of gore and lots and lots of violence. All with great set design, some solid bloody prop work, and the world’s best dog actor.

The Storytelling Drama of Combat Sports

StorySmack Episode #44

“But fights aren’t stories,” you say? WRONG-O, FISH-BREATH! Companies like the UFC are exceptional storytellers, creating tales with live performers and unwritten endings. A discusses her initial dismissal and disdain for combat sports, and how she’s come to change her mind. Scott talks about how getting punch in the mouth can lead one to discovering proper, civilized behavior. They both use UFC Fight Night 143 to discuss how these real-life storylines play out, with all the drama, violence, sacrifice and the built-in “Hero’s Journey” path.

Groundhog Day

StorySmack Episode #45

Groundhog Day on Groundhog Day? Are we in a time loop? Scott and A become gods (but not the god) as they discuss this 1993 classic, and the hordes of rodent-like movies “inspired” by it.

SpiderMan: Into the Spiderverse

StorySmack Episode #43

Scott and A take a look at the Golden Globe-winning film that could have long-term ramifications on superhero storytelling. When a film so successfully brings a comic to life as a comic, what does that mean for big-budget live-action superhero films? Are the days of live flicks doomed?

EARTHCORE Episode #31

Connell, Veronica, Mack, Lybrand, Sanji and  O’Doyle are under attack, trapped on a ledge. On one side, a sheer cliff and certain death. On the other, a crawling army of monsters, steadly closing in. But there is a way out — Angus Kool and Randy Wright just dropped down from a place higher up the cliff face. Can they get Connell and the others off the ledge before it’s too late?

EARTHCORE Episode #29

Connell, O’Doyle, Lybrand and the others just endured a grueling, savage fight for life against the original occupants of the picture cavern. Deep in another part of the tunnell complex, Angus Kool and Randy Wright were dissecting a silverbug, trying to learn what technological secrets might be inside. And up on the surface, Kayla Meyers is ready to parlay the unimaginable discovery of the Funeral Mountain horrors into a shot at redemption, a shot at getting back her position in the National Security Agency. Will she once again represent the USA?
