Episode Ten - Three Guys Walk Into a Bar...

 Welcome to Live from the ManCave!!! We've been saying it for months, but today we finally did it. We finally went and brought someone creepier than ourselves on the Internet. And BOY do things just go downhill from there.

In this episode, CraigMakk desperately explains the truth behind why R.M.S.P. ("real men see plays"); Jest tries to prove that he is most definitely NOT Mexican; and third mic Jon from proves that older married guys can still have hot moms. Seriously, his mom is hot. Go on, Google her....we'll wait.

Throughout it all you'll learn how women need to repair after childbirth, how Christmas and acid leads to near-death experiences, and why Eddie Murphy ruins everything. Oh, and don't expect to learn anything from Jon at all, because we never let him finish a sentence. But boy, do we get drunk. So sit back, grab a beer, and welcome to "Live from the ManCave!!!"

Beer of the Show: The Bruery's Mischief, a dry, hoppy Belgian Ale that will get you wrecked just like us.

Episode Eight - George Washington Carver: Valentine Hunter

Welcome to "Live from the ManCave!!!" As you probably (don't) know, the even episodes are our regular old episodes, with all the knee-slapping humor and witty banter you've come to know and love. At least that's what we say when we're crying ourselves to sleep at night. I mean partying and sleeping with random women!! Yeah, that's more like it.

In this episode, CraigMakk explains how much he hates men with girl's names, Jest proves that his favorite show on television is the commercial break, and the guys profess their man-love for the Giants in an overly drunk, and possibly creepy, fashion.

Episode 7 - Bonus Features

In Episode Seven, we unveil our newest invention: the ManCave MovieNight! This wonderful creation allows us to focus an entire episode on our World-Famous "Watch That Shit!" segment, essentially becoming a full "spoilercast". This will allow you to control how you spoil movies for yourself. Or go back and watch the movies and catch up on the MovieNights without getting behind on our even MORE World-Famous LFtMC Episodes! Or just skip them because you don't care. Whatever, we don't care, as long as you subscribe to our show. If we learned anything from Nielsen ratings, it's that if you stick your head in the sand and pretend you don't worry about changes likes "the Internet" and "people's tastes" and "watching habits," you can stay in business forever.

So anyway, in this episode we do a spoiler-free review of Chronicle for you, in case you want to see that in the theater. We also get pretty spoil-heavy on "Horrible Bosses" and "The Adjustment Bureau," so make sure you've either seen them or don't care. Because we'll spoil it. We'll do it. Seriously, we don't care. We're crazy like that.

Lucky for you, there's not a whole lot you need to know for this brand-new episode, the ManCave MovieNight. So simply enjoy some Abita S.O.S. Pilsner, and let us know what you think at!

Episode Six - Pop Bottles

Welcome to "Live from the ManCave!!!" and welcome to 2012! We decided to hold our very own New Year's Party in the ManCave....we don't care when the year actually started. We're all supposed to die this year anyway, so does it really matter??

 In this episode, CraigMakk makes a bunch of Resolutions that involve a whole lot of work for other people (and none for himself), and Serious Jest explains why the DEA should give up the War on Drugs and instead turn their sights on The Matrix. Then prepare to be wowed by the pomp and circumstance of our very First Annual ManCave Awards! Listen in as CraigMakk & Serious Jest host a very professional awards show with their good friend, Mr. Announcer Voice Guy. BOY, do those guys love Rampage Jackson.

Throughout it all, you'll learn about a bunch of shows and movies you may have never seen, get a better understanding of SOPA/PIPA than you ever wanted, spoil the shit out of two movies you've never heard of called "Quicksand" and "Rare Exports", and listen to the guys get drunk while arguing over the finer points of elves' rights. So sit back, grab a drink, and welcome to "Live from the ManCave!!!"

Episode Six - Bonus Features

In Episode Six, we ring in the New Year ManCave-style! First off, we do a bunch of ManCave Resolutions while drinking the official "ManCave Champagne of the Show," called Zardetto Prosecco. It's pretty terrible. Please, don't blame us. Blame Tim. He sucks at his job.

Next, we kick off our first-ever "ManCave Awards Show!" If you like the lead-in song, here's some more info. They are called Karmin, and you can follow them on Twitter at @KarminMusic. They have a bunch of songs and links you can check out. Let us know what you think at

He really does love him.

Now back to the Awards Show. As you will see, we  circle back to many of our Award-winners with some well-placed clips for your enjoyment. One of those clips is an incredible remix of Charlie Sheen's interview, which you can find a link to here and even download for free. We also cannot recommend Wilfred enough. How awesome does this look?

(App) 79 mins 
(R) 84 mins
Our Movie Review segment includes a full-spoiler discussion on "Quicksand" and "Rare Exports", which is probably the first time you've ever heard of either. For your information, "Quicksand" is a 1950 film noir, and "Rare Exports" is a brand new Christmas classic. Check them out first, then listen to our review and discussion in Episode Six. 

Let us know what you think at Seriously, we want to know!

You can join the fight here.
Oh, and for the high-brow intelligent types among our listeners, to find out more about SOPA and PIPA, as well as the multinational ACTA, take a look here. Are we right to be afraid? We think so. But maybe we're just paranoid drunks. It's very possible.

Episode Five - The Christmas Party

Welcome to "Live from the ManCave!!!" This time around we actually have a legitimate Christmas-themed episode. We figured now that all your decorations are down and the tree is in the garbage, we can help you with those post-holiday blues by celebrating with your favorite podcast like it never ended! And to think you say we never gave you anything...

In this episode, things start out great as CraigMakk discusses some insane and potentially deadly family holiday parties from Christmas' past; Serious Jest does his best to prove that he's not cheap with regards to gift-giving, he's just frugal and more about the thought than the gift (i.e. cheap); and even Chewie makes a couple of key yet suspect appearances from his company holiday party!

Then things quickly go to hell (or is it heaven?), as Jest preaches his most inner beliefs about spotlights from heaven, the meaning of love conquering all, and why God doesn't have to play by his own rules....all while INCREDIBLY inebriated from SoCoEeNo (you'll have to listen to know what that means).

Throughout all the insanity, you will have heard about a bunch of great gifts to give or receive, the ManCave's favorite Christmas movies of all time, and some of the best holiday beers on the planet...all while teaching you the all-new "ManCave Drinking Game!" See, that's why you listen! So sit back, grab a (holiday) drink, and welcome to "Live from the ManCave!!!"

Beer of the Show: Noel Baladin, an Italian Christmas Ale, and apparently Jest's favorite beer ever.
