What’s up, everybody!

We’re nearing EP020! I’m super happy we’re still pushing out content and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Spoiler: Shaun hasn’t quit The EZPZ Podcast because of Fallout 4 just yet.

**We send our love out to those in Paris that have been affected by the tragedy last week. ❤ ❤ ❤ Stay strong!

0:00 – 11:32

We start out the cast chatting about the atrocious tragedy in Paris. Dan’s car completely broke down in parking lot. Which sparked a conversation about calling tow trucks and locksmiths.

11:33 – 23:52

Shaun discussed his awful customer experience with GameStop regarding his Pip By edition of Fallout 4 that they cancelled. He vowed to never shop there again. The lemon heads chat about Fallout 4 and some awesome moments Shaun has had in the game already.

23:53 – 33:26

Finding Dory’s first trailer has dropped. We chat about how great the trailer was not spoiling much of the movie and dove into how so many trailers nowadays spoil movies. Theater etiquette and escaping social media and your phone buzzing rounded out the conversation.

33:27 – 43:52

“Topic of the Show” time! There a large sector of the Internet that raised hell with Starbuck’s 2015 holiday cup. It’s just red and has no Christmas artwork.  Topic of the Show is #TotS. Let’s get the HASHTAG going!

43:53 – 57:51

Last week, Shia watched Shia in a movie theater and live streamed the entire thing. Will Shia La Beouf become our generations Gary Busey? We shall see… we capped out the episode with some music discussion including Apple Music, Foxing’s Dealer, Justin Bieber’s new album, Purpose. Shaun defended J-Beebs a bit.

57:52 – 58:35

That’s a wrap! Thanks for checking out the show. Ian Dunshee will be here next week for EP019. Get hyped, people

What’s up, everybody! Halloween is done and over, so we’re back on track… sort of. This episode is a bit late because Dan has had some crazy car troubles, which you can hear about in EP018. Look for that soon. Other than that, let’s dive right in.

0:00 – 12:53

We started off the show chatting about our favorite fast-food and junk foods. Casey’s pizza, Chipotle’s freshness Vs Panchero’s burrito goo. Let’s just say it has been a bad week for our diets…

Price Chopper has officially killed off Dahl’s and renovated many of their stores. The Canadian-based corporation doesn’t necessarily have the best prices. But their ad is pretty decent. We put Walmart on blast because…Walmart.

Shaun briefly chatted about his experience at the Des Moines marketing conference called #Market515, which hosted the marketing mastermind behind Hy-Vee, Nathan T. Wright. The lemon heads got into just how great Target is as a store, too.

12:54 – 30:48

WWE superstar Seth Rollins tore his MCL and ACL at a house show in Dublin. With the injury, he was forced to relinquish the world heavy weight championship belt. We got into some chitter-chatter about the WWE as a production company, which includes movies and music, too.

Movies like See No Evil and Oculus sparked a late conversation on horror movies. The Evil Dead remake is one of da best while we are all lukewarm on It Follows.

30:49 – 56:53

#RIPSethRollins title reign and #RIP2MyYouth, which is The Neighbourhood’s lead single for their new album, Wiped Out! We got into a conversation about some seasonal nostalgia we get from music, new-new from Stray From the Path, Sam Gellaitry and Mr. Carmack’s new-new and more.

Shaun shared that he hasn’t listened to much music lately and has been obsessing over the release of Fallout 4. Also, he announced the new video game YouTube series of “Let’s Plays” we’re calling The EZPZ Plays with Fallout 4 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time being the first two titles. Check out The EZPZ YouTube channel to see some gameplay of each game in GLORIOUS HD 1080p 60FPS.

Some are hyped on the new Star Wars and some aren’t so much. We do have hope in it since JJ Abrams is directing.

56:54 – 59:33

Thank you so much for listening to The EZPZ Podcast. We do this for you and only you, yes, I mean you reading this right now.

EP016

Well, this was a doozy, but at least we’re staying on track. After a week off, we got back behind the mics. We want you to know that our New Year’s resolution is to make sure to upload an episode a week. We recorded this episode right after Halloween, so we were a bit….um… tired. Halloween is always a blast! Lots of fun was had, food was eaten, drinks were drunk and costumes were worn this year…accept for #StealthModeDan, who didn’t wear a costume either Friday or Saturday. Oh, Dan…

0:00  – 7:22

We kick it off with Shaun’s awful experience at Wynnsong Theater in Johnston this past week when he went to see his Steve Jobs with his father.

7:23 – 21:25

#StealthModeDan Reviews! a new segment we want to bring to the show every episode. This week, Dan reviews the new coffee shop in Des Moines called Sidebar. Then we get into Nick and Shaun’s experience at 515 Alive presents FREAK OUT! and how Nick got screwed over in the costume contest.

21:26 – 27:49

Police brutality hit the news again with director Quentin Tarantino expressing his support of “the victims”. Police groups in New York City announced how they are going to boycott his future projects. We fall into the Tarantino lemon-hole and chat about his movies, including the new film due out on Christmas day, Hateful Eight.

27:50 – 33:16

Dan has a Des Moines hack for you all in the war against parking meters. Dan has an update on his quest for a successful Tinder relationship and shocker, it doesn’t go well… Poor, Dan.

33:17 – 39:14

#DicksUp or #DicksDown, you be the judge! We ended the show by discussing some music and a little about our Halloween nights!

39:14 – 40:04

Outro. And yes, it was all Dan’s idea. 😛

What’s up, everybody! EP015 is in the books. We were privileged enough to have one of Shaun’s good friends on as a special guest, Daniyel Turner.

Daniyel Turner was back in town for a wedding, so we got him on the show. He currently lives in Oakland, California and works as the social media manager for an electric scooter and bicycle company called GenZe.

We went pretty deep down the lemon hole in this episode on some stuff. I wouldn’t say we got all existential and such, but we almost did. Daniyel and Dan are both talented musicians but they approach playing music in different ways.

#StealthModeDan got into a three-car accident but it wasn’t his fault, so he was obviously a bit heated and had to let out some steam.

Daniyel Turner went to Columbia College of Arts in Chicago. Since Nick and I just took a road trip there for the Armor For Sleep show, we chatted about Chicago and pizza.

Dan also took a road trip recently to Iowa City to see Ian and his other friend, Bryan. He caught some of CHVRCHES’ free show on the University of Iowa’s campus. In true Des Moines fashion, everyone had an opinion on Iowa City and spoke about some bad and good memories while in the college town.

Dan wanted to ask Daniyel Turner how he defined success. We went down that lemon hole and had one of the best conversations we ever had! We got into keeping your word, staying accountable, and not just talking about doing things but actually doing things.

Dan showed us a video of a young, white, drill time rapper that has been blowing up this past summer: Slim Jesus. We discuss his lyrical topics which like Nick said, we all have heard this all before but better. At least most of us learned what it means to co-sign an artist, thanks to Daniyel.

Dan gave us a brief review of Bryson Tiller and Wavves’ newest albums. Which got us into discussing a bunch of other artists and bands in true EZPZ fashion.

We really love having guests on the show. Send us an email if you want to be on the show and we’ll get you on! Thanks for listening! That wraps episode 015 of The EZPZ Podcast.

The EZPZ Podcast Special EP003: Armor For Sleep

SEP003

Nick and Shaun went to the Armor For Sleep 10-Year Anniversary Tour for What To Do When You Are Dead! This tour got announced in late June and they snagged tickets on day one because well, it’s Armor For Sleep. Nick hadn’t seen them before this and after the fun road trip they took to see Title Fight in March, they knew they had to record the fun moments for this road trip.

DISCLAIMER: This special episode was recorded in Shaun’s Mazda 3 on an iPhone 6 during the drive home from Chicago, so the audio isn’t the best. It was great seeing the band back in action. We discussed our fun road antics, our fast food choice, “The Great Shaun Mix-up” and the show itself.

Again, we are sorry for the audio quality, this was recorded on an iPhone 6 and is more of a way to capture the memory of two best friends road-tripping to see a band that means so much to them.

The EZPZ Podcast EP014: PSL Season

EP014 plain

This episode was recorded under the influence of fun and well, we’ll be honest, copious amounts of wine. We got behind the mic on a Friday night after Shaun got off work. It is a little more rowdy and rambunctious than our usual episode. Send your hate mail to @ShaunSJohnson. Please enjoy EP014: PSL Season!

0:00 – 10:14 — Introduction. #StealthModeDan’s patented weekly recap segment kicks off the show. His sister, Liz (@ESTORIE), had an art show in the East Village with the DSM Girl Gang and Dan went and shares his thoughts about it. He got Tacopacalypse after the art show and reported back that the food chain still hasn’t built a ramp. Shaun discusses how he recently moved. The Lift is hosting a poetry reading event on the fourth Monday. Dan attended it and had a good time going to it.

10:15 – 20:38 — Dan kicks off the second quarter of the show for what seems to be a weekly Tinder update. He finally had a good match! The lemon heads discuss Snapchat and how the discover page is so cool. Nick and his fiancé, Shayna, have been on the meal-prep game lately.

20:29 – 38:13 — National Coffee Day came and went. The lemon heads chat about their need of coffee and caffeine as they age. What comes with fall? Pumpkin Spice Lattes or PSLs to the kids out there.

38:14 – 51:38 — Tony Hawk Glitch Skater 5 came out this week. It made waves in the media for how many glitches and bugs are in the retail game. The game clocks in at 4GBs with a day one update of 8GBs. A national day/week that actually matters, Suicide Awareness Week, happened and the lemon heads chat some ways to relieve stress and depression. The boys end the show with the music they are jamming to right now.

*Editor’s note: Blu-rays are actually 25GBs, not 50GBs.

51:39 – 52:45 — Conclusion! Thank you for listening. Our show is free for everyone, so introduce the show to a friend for us!
