Dorking Out Episode 54: The Baby Driver Goes To Twin Peaks Edition

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s Dorking Out, we talk about Edgar Wright’s “Baby Driver.” We’re so excited to talk about a movie that isn’t a super hero movie. It isn’t a franchise-building, cinematic universe installment. It isn’t animated. It’s just a kick-ass heist movie. Mike Richman, host of the political podcast NorCal News Now joins us.

Dorking Out Episode 53: The 40th Anniversary of Dorking Out Edition

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s very special episode, we revisit 40 years of Dorking Out for our one-year anniversary.

Wait, what?

That’s right. We’ve been recording test shows for the past 40 years to make sure all the bugs were worked out, and this time last year we realized we finally nailed it. So, while we have been recording the show for 40 years, it wasn’t official until last year.

So, to celebrate our first-year anniversary, we’re sharing with you our most memorable and most embarrassing moments from the past 40 years of shows, including a review of “Star Wars,” the arguments that got so heated one of quit, and the soap opera-drama that comes with creating a weekly show.

Dorking Out Episode 50: The Wonder Woman Edition

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, we review “Wonder Woman” with some very special guests: Laura, Chris’s better half, and Margo D. from Book vs. Movie. There was a lot riding on the success of “Wonder Woman.” Would audiences come out to see a female superhero movie? Would the DC Universe finally make a good movie that rivals Marvel’s long-running and critically acclaimed franchise? “Wonder Woman” made more than $100 million at the box office, but is it good? We talk about that.

In our second second, Chris and Sonia talk about the recent controversies surrounding comedians Kathy Griffin and Bill Maher. How far is too far when it comes to comedy?

And finally, we end our show with what we’re dorking out about this week, including the return of Sonia’s other podcast, Old Movies, New Beer, and Chris’s recent Emmy win.
