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

The EZPZ Podcast EP011: World Wide Chill

What’s up, everybody! This week we have a very special episode of The EZPZ Podcast with co-host Ian Dunshee! You have probably heard about Ian before in some of #StealthModeDan’s stories. Ian is Dan’s best friend and brings a level-headed viewpoint to the table of lemon heads. The episode dives right into how Dan and Ian met, which included a really funny and sweet story of despising one another in study hall to sharing a stage in a high school pop-punk band. After discussing their small band, Shaun asked the table what they thought about Des Moines’ own, House of Bricks, shutting down somewhat recently. Some shared how they were happy and some shared that they will miss seeing small acts before they explode into big acts.

Ian is Dan’s best friend but until this summer, they had not see each other in over a year. Ian shared that he had been in Martinique, which is part of the Caribbean, studying archaeology. On the island of Martinique, he shared about how he was the reason people “tchip” in the streets. Ian discussed other things that were different about the culture in Martinique. He said that the music and party scene could not be more different than in the states.

Music Interlude: “It’s Carnival” by Destra

Dan gave us the mathematical lowdown on how biking is faster than walking. He started using the Des Moines Bcycle when out and about downtown which is a bicycle rental service. He gave the service two thumbs up and thinks people in Des Moines should use it more often. Ian just got back from RAGBRAI this last week and discussed how awesome of an experience it was for him. He got to see Cheap Trick and hang out with a bunch of fellow cyclists across the country. Ian wanted to make sure listeners do not think that to be a part of RABGRAI, you have to be a master cyclist.

Music Interlude: “Surrender” by Cheap Trick

Dan had another anxiety attack this past week. The anxiety/panic attack lead to a freaky occurrence at work between him and a customer. The lemon heads start talking about their own ghost stories. Dan goofed on Shaun for “not believing” in ghosts or paranormal activity. The stories shared by the lemon heads included a weirdo that claimed he “smelled something” while Ian was cooking in the community kitchen, stories about a high school friend of Ian and Dan’s who always had ghostly experiences and and Nick seeing a white figure standing at the door across the hall as a kid.

Music Interlude: “Ghostbusters” (Theme Song) by Ray Parker, Jr.

The Meek Mill and Drake drama really beefed up this week with Drake finally retaliating on OVO Sound Radio. The lemon heads discussed how they were happy Drake finally had a response after staying silent all week. Drake’s response was in the form of a track called “Charged Up”. All three hosts of the show thought Drake completely demolished Meek with this track. Ian thought the whole situation was about as mature as schoolyard fights, which the co-hosts could not exactly deny.

Music Interlude: “Charged Up” by Drake

Shaun wanted to discuss the incident at a concert in New Zealand, Earl Sweatshirt punched a fan that stormed the stage, tried to hug him and possibly take his mic. He wanted to ask the other lemon heads and Ian if he boys discussed how they think that it is pretty dumb that fans think they can storm the stage. It is one thing if the fan wants to crowd surf and stage dive, but that was not the case at an Earl Sweatshirt show in New Zealand. The lemon heads and Ian came to a consensus that they believe fan should not be storming the stage, period. This can create an unsafe environment for not only the artist and security but also fans. Security needs to be upped for certain acts and in this case security dropped the ball.

Music Interlude: “Wool” by Earl Sweatshirt

That’s a wrap! This was a very fun episode to record. What did you agree or disagree with in the show? Is there a host that you love, hate or love to hate?
