Wikicast 020 - Tecmo Super Bowl II: Special Edition

January 13, 2018

If you've ever wondered which one of us has the bigger penis, the answer is confirmed in this podcast. Also featuring: sports, retro games, merch discussion, and a mystery unboxing.

ALSO WE LAUNCHED A PATREON LOL. For just $1 a month (the price of a can of coke or something) you can help the show massively by 1) helping us pay for hosting, 2) keep Wikipedia afloat, 3) help us make more content for you, and 4) pledge your allegience to #TeamCat or #TeamDog. We're not asking for much, but if you can help us make the podcast grow and get better and better it would be massively appreciated. Hopefully not just by us, but also by our audience too! So really you're helping yourself. Why are you still reading this? GO TO DAT LINK

Wikicast 019 - Cook & Becker

January 6, 2018

Never again. Fan fiction is never going to be the same again. We're back in the new year, featuring a fat Simon, an art dealer, a nasal feudal system, and a royal cover-up...

It was extremely windy in the UK when we filmed this, sorry if some wind noise creeps in every now and again!

Wikicast 015 - Eudoxus (Martian crater)

The geology of Mars, oral traditions, reviewing Blade Runner: 2049, and guest-starring a particularly cash-strapped housemate.... it's the Wikicast! Now in record-breaking length! Also featuring the finale of the Case of the Deleted Pixels!

Wikicast 014 - Hymn Sing

October 28, 2017

Yes, we couldn't quite believe that we got this article either. But don't fear - we don't actually talk about music that much! In this episode Simon has a complete breakdown, we talk about films, scaring kids, and a rather saucy fan fiction has Dan serving Simon coq au vin... minus the vin.
