Welcome to the minute-by-minute podcast devoted to The Incredibles, the 2004 Disney-Pixar film about a family with superpowers. Tim is a high school teacher living in the Southeast. His online writings are mostly about movies and can be found here, at Seeing Things Secondhand. Matt is a grad student and teacher based in the Great… Read More Jawn Voyage – The Incredibles, Minute by Minute
Matt and I return, adding another unnecessary element to the title of the podcast (it’s possibly the B&B B&B Suite now, which is punny and dumb and relates back to the punny, dumb stuff we do), but more importantly biting off more than we can chew. Both of us burrowed back into our little musical… Read More Baumann and Burch, Episode 32: The Kirk, Spock, and McCoy of 2000s Alt-Rock
Matt and I finally get down to business to complete a band draft, an idea that’s been near to our heart but far from our podcast for some time now. Taking the helm of four bands apiece – with names from many styles, from Wu-Tang to pirates – we create a positive festival chock full… Read More Baumann and Burch, Episode 28: The Spicy and the Honeys
It’s another edition of the B&B B&B, but based on the number of topics we give airtime to, it’s more like three. In our first segment, we discuss TV: The Book, the marvelous Sepinwall/Zoller Seitz joint which gives an authoritative and super readable rundown of great American television. Matt: I was pleasantly surprised by where… Read More Baumann and Burch, Episode 26: British Miniseries and the Worth of Clive Owen
In honor of our twenty-fifth episode, we’ve decided to talk about a famous thing with the number “30” in it. Since 30 for 30s are universally popular, we’ve decided to return to sports and talk about some topics – overwhelmingly, as we’ve found out, from our childhoods – which deserve some press. In this episode,… Read More Baumann and Burch, Episode 25: B&B Presents 25 for 25
There’s almost too much to talk about in this latest installation of a series on Top 100s in music, but we give our level best to a host of topics, like: what happened to rock music? what happened to rap and hip-hop? where are the white women at? Join us as we take a long… Read More Baumann and Burch, Episode 20: How Purple Light Killed Music
Josh returns, covered in glory, to the podcast as we dip into Harry Potter. In this installment, the B&B B&B runs through its favorite Harry Potter novels. We talk about the universality of Ron Weasley, draft real life athletes to be Quidditch stars, discuss the pedagogy of Hogwarts teachers, get deep into our feelings about… Read More Baumann and Burch, Episode 19: Podcast Yes!
In the sudden tradition that we’ve come across, we’ve made a Top 100 Disney Songs list that you can see below. We bring back Josh to talk Disney with us, and we spare no thought for scope of this audio feast: we discuss whether Disney’s rollicking tunes or its introspective ballads are its most indicative… Read More Baumann and Burch, Episode 18: Jiminy Brisket
Matt and I dip back into music and Top 100 lists for this podcast, in which we talk about the most quintessentially ’80s songs. Find out what Toto’s “Africa” and Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long” have in common, why Matt loves The Outfield’s “Your Love” so much, learn about the magic of hair metal, and… Read More Baumann and Burch, Episode 14: Private Karaoke
In this episode – our tenth! – Matt and I talk about a pair of our favorite books. Matt talks about how Anil’s Ghost literally changed the trajectory of his life, making some stops along the way for discussions of epistemology; I make it my life’s podcast’s work to bend the allusions in A Prayer… Read More Baumann and Burch, Episode 10: Isn’t It Pretty to Think So?
