Continuing the trend of Bryan barely managing to scrape together a co-host, Zachary joins our intrepid leader to talk about video games and stuff! (Though mostly video games.) Bryan decides to test the extent of Zachary’s gaming cred by seeing just how many of 2019’s hottest hits he can name. (Spoiler: He loses because he didn’t know Two Worlds 3.)
Surprise! We can do weekly episodes after all!
This is the episode that very nearly didn’t happen, but inspired by a sleepless night of examining his own brain, Cameron sent Bryan a message and asked if he wanted to talk about memory and music and stuff. Bryan said “cool man”, and a true classic was born.
As we wait for the full group to gather around and officially ring in the New Year (which may indeed take until February), we still managed to spend some time on the cherished tradition, What’s Up With the Whales.
It may not be a flashy episode, it may not even be an entertaining episode, but we valued it, and so should you!
Stephen and Bryan ring out the holiday season with a number of wonderful new traditions, such as:
Making sleigh-bell sounds
Speaking only through carols
The Lyrical Miracle
And at least two more!
DISCLAIMER: Stephen was very tired and sitting in the warm sunlight so he almost fell asleep numerous times.
After Cameron miraculously transforms from a whale into a human being, Bryan joins him in celebrating his good fortune by talking about things and recording it all.
Like a fine wine, it’s best experienced by swallowing it. And it’s made of grapes.
One day, a Stephen was walking through the forest when he came upon a Bryan. The Bryan said:
“Wanna do a pod-cast?”
The Bryan was suspiciously cheerful about this notion, but the Stephen played along, because he did not like conflict.
However, the Stephen did not realize he would be doing the pod-cast with a Cameron. The Cameron ate the Stephen and laughed and laughed and laughed. The Bryan smiled and asked the Stephen if he was having a good day.
What truly makes an episode of Disembodied Voices? Is it the quartet of Zachary, Stephen, Cameron, and Bryan? Is it talking over each other in an attempt to tell funny funny jokes? Is it talking about video games for slightly too long?
By any of these definitions, this qualifies, so I guess we don’t need to worry about it after all! :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
From Fraiser to the 1953 Iranian coup d’etat, no one outside of a creatively minded conspiracy theorist can say Stephen’s interests fit together. But neither does this podcast!
Stephen, Cameron, and Bryan are in good spirits, which means they discard sense of order and cohesion to instead talk about their lives and maybe a little bit of Destiny. It’s a good time and listening to it will make you a good person, we promise.
What began as a joking prompt for Stephen to recite his semi-encyclopedic knowledge about Frasier Crane became an actually interesting 45-minute long discussion about sitcoms, cynicism, and reliving the past.
We also talked a little about Frasier Crane.
Cammy Ron and Benjo are buddy cops in the making as they share a guffaw or three and kick back a glass of good times. Whether they end up on the path to marital bliss or a rude awakening all comes down to how they answer a bunch of questions. Bet you super fo sho didn't see that one coming.
Brr-yan and Benjo are buddy cops in the making as they share a guffaw or three and kick back a glass of good times. Whether they end up on the path to marital bliss or a rude awakening all comes down to how they answer a bunch of questions. Bet you super didn't see that one coming.
Stevey and Benjo are buddy cops in the making as they share a guffaw or three and kick back a glass of good times. Whether they end up on the path to marital bliss or a rude awakening all comes down to how they answer a bunch of questions. Bet you didn't see that one coming.
Bryan's sudden disappearance halfway through the episode forces Cameron into a seat of power he was neither expecting, nor prepared for. Join Cameron Nutter, Stephen Kelly, Zachary Walton, and that one fish guy in a gripping coming of age story that will leave critics stunned, and audiences even stunneder.
Also we talk about video games.
The whole Pod-cast crew is back together, although unforeseen circumstances mean Bryan and Cameron have to take on most of the conversational workload. AS USUAL.
Fortunately their metaphorical quiver of metaphorical talking arrows is metaphorically full, so prepare to be entertained by means of getting shot repeatedly. The usual conversation topics of concerts, Heroes, and whether Cameron can ever use a calendar do indeed come up, but we also leave the reservation and explore the wild hinterlands of Cameron's potential future as a mime, which is perhaps the most overlooked topic to date.
E3 has come and gone, and all the Whales are Whales crew can think about is not video games. Well, except for Zachary, Cameron and Stephen - they have video games on the mind and they're writing about them on the padded walls they call interior decoration.
On this week's Unnamed Video Games Podcast, the aforementioned Whales are Whales members go through all the big games announced at E3 and provide some hot takes. Does Zachary actually care about any of the games announced? (Spoilers: Yes!) Is Cameron going to play Anthem? (Spoilers: Probably!) Is Stephen excited for Team Sonic Racing? (Spoilers: Definitely!) Be sure to listen all the way to the end to hear Ben's exciting opinion on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
