The Bastardcast vs. Hollywood Truthiness

This week on The Bastarcast, Jeremy and Jason ponder Gangnam cosplay style, the plausibility of both warp drive and another Indiana Jones movie, and what a new PS3 model means for next generation consoles.

After HEADLINES, Jason plays an excerpt of his interview with Parks and Rec star Nick Offerman and then — on a thoroughly unrelated note — the boys take on the long and illustrious history of actors bashing their former projects (hat tip to Pajiba and writer Josh Kurp for inspiring the conversation).

Coming out of THE MAIN EVENT, Jason talks about stealing his living room and filling it with lightsabers while Jeremy is convinced that he is the center of the verse and destined to take on a horde of other hims in DIRTY NERDY CONFESSIONS.

The Bastardcast,  officially Gotham Style!


When I was little, my mom told me story about how there was a news cast on the radio about aliens invading earth, and sending the people of earth into a frenzy. Well this BADASS news is for all of us who missed Orsen Welles Punking America, by playing War of the Worlds as a real broadcast. Hold onto your bottled water and batteries, I can’t wait to see how many red necks still fall for this…Again.

Tomorrow, the H.G. Wells book will be read again on air — to promote the Zac Efron movie ‘Me and Orson Welles.’
The broadcast begins at 8PM on Oct. 30 — which is exactly 71 years and one minute after the first time the legendary actor pulled the stunt that led Americans to believe aliens were invading.

I’m not sure what channel or if its syndicated cross country, but if you can take a listen or find some info, comment below.
