A Fan’s Guide to “Picking Favorites”: Episode 14, The Call In Episode (with YOU)

Separator

By Shannon Fox, @shannonfox

Guys… we’re gonna need a bigger boat.  Er, post? Er, website?  Listen, I was trying to be funny and it just fell off of the rails completely, can I just get a sympathy laugh around here?  GOOD LORD.

Welcome to your weekly recap of the “Picking Favorites” podcast, except this is the SUPER-SIZED version because our face-smooshingly awesome hosts took a bunch of calls and there’s a lot of choices to go over.  So maybe grab a snack or something.  Or a caffeinated beverage.  Or maybe even an alcoholic beverage, like I did when I heard how many topics/choices I would have to recap in this episode.  *twitch*

You can download this week’s episode on iTunes or Soundcloud.

This Week’s Special Guest:

THE FANS!

This week, the guys took calls from us, their faithful listeners.  And there was much rejoicing.

With that being said, to the folks that picked favorites with the guys, if I spell your name incorrectly PLEASE let me know and also don’t hate me forever, ‘kay?

Random Notes from Shannon’s Brain

  • Listen, I may give Razzle a hard time about mentioning Edge of Tomorrow in pretty much every episode, but I think I made up for it by putting a very nice picture of Taylor Swift in this recap.  So maybe we’re even? Shush, Razzle, you know I heart your face.
  • This week’s “Hey, You’re Awesome” Award goes to… THE FANS!  Because we’re awesome.  C’mon.  Go on with your bad selves.
  • Not that I was looking for a reason to include this or anything because I may be ACTUALLY DYING OF EXCITEMENT ABOUT IT, but since it was mentioned… ZAC’S GONNA BE IN THE HEROES REBOOT!
  • How does KENTUCKY, one of the nicest guys around, like GASTON, the douchiest douche of all time, as his favorite Disney character??
  • Guys, I really miss Tyler.  I am in a state of Canadian-Puppy-Withdrawal.
  • Not only does there CLEARLY need to be a musical episode of the podcast, but there also needs to be a “Talk in a Different Accent” episode.  Am I right?

That’s it for this week’s recap!  Remember to subscribe to and rate the podcast on iTunes, and send your favorites to @thenerdmachine on Twitter with the hashtag “#PickingFavorites”.

    WOW, Shannon … well done for capturing all that. This was a great episode!

    Ditto what Jayne said! Are your fingers in traction, Shannon?

    A HUGE thank you to Zac for reminding me about the faboo film “Amelie” and my crush on Audrey Tautou…and that I OWN THAT DVD AND THAT I NEED TO WATCH IT AGAIN!!!

    I love that the fans threw out some love for “Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D”.

    Oh, and guys, if you get a female from “Firefly” to guest on the show, please, please, please have it be Morena Baccarin. (Please?)

    favourite part of this fan guide is definitely “Random notes from Shannon’s brain” section! i agree with so many of them!
    definitely need Kentucky to elaborate on why Gaston is his favourite.
    the talking in a different accent and singing was hilarious!
    the rapid fire without research shows who they really are, and how (pop/nerd) cultured they are. and thats what made this particular episode highly entertaining.
    along with a female Firefly guest, Alan Tudyk would be another amazing guest to have! or have Marvel guests. Tom Hiddleston, Joss Whedon or James Gunn would be pretty fantastic too!
