Stolendroids Podcast

Bringing you the latest in geek-culture and technology news

Stolendroids Podcast is a three-time finalist for Best Tech Podcast of the Year. Listen as they bring the latest news from the world of technology and all things geek-culture.

The World Is Upside Down

Season 2, Ep. 389

The big news this week is something that Jake from Movies That Make Us predicted mere hours after Spider-Man left the MCU: Disney/Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures have made up, at least for now. Spider-Man is officially back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but did he ever really leave? Sure, it was announced that he was out, but since no movies were made, was he really gone? It’s kind of like if Kevin Feige is in charge of a Star Wars movie, does Kathleen Kennedy matter? Maybe Samuel L. Jackson will be able to answer these questions once he becomes the voice of Alexa later this year.

Crisis on Infinite Podcasts Part 2

Season 2, Ep. 388

Remember how in the 70s, 80s, and even into the 90s every now and then your favorite television show would do "a very special episode?" They usually contained either a brief message from the cast or a title card reading either "Viewer Discretion Advised" or "Parental Discretion Advised" to let viewers know that the episode might be controversial or upsetting. Thankfully, in this "very special episode" of Stolendroids Podcast, we're no more controversial or upsetting than usual. You also don't want to pass this episode over since it's part two of "Crisis on Infinite Podcasts." (To be honest, we like how "very special episode" sounds.) And even though we don't have anyone becoming addicted to caffeine pills, getting drunk from vanilla extract, or using a fake ID to get a job serving beer brewed by warlocks, this is indeed a very special episode.

In the second part of "Crisis on Infinite Podcasts," the hosts from Movies That Make Us and Stolendroids Podcast join forces in a crossover of epic proportions to welcome Cutscenes and Cupcakes! They've been around for a while, but in case you're unfamiliar with them, Cutscenes and Cupcakes is the only podcast where three ladies, each of whom have differing levels of gaming experience, discuss video games and then compare them to desserts.

And even though we try to keep things on topic, you know that we're going to fail miserably. We do manage to discuss piracy, video games, and more random topics though so enjoy the chaos and be entertained.

If you missed part one of "Crisis on Infinite Podcasts," listen to it on Movies That Make Us. The adventure concludes in part three on Cutscenes and Cupcakes this Wednesday!

Welcome to the family, ladies!


The Millennium Tesla

Season 2, Ep. 387

Do you remember that feeling you had as a child when you would get a new toy and you couldn't wait to play with it? That pretty much sums up Collin in this episode as he takes every opportunity to test his new mixer. He is like a kid in a candy store. Full of gummy bears. Also, he has gummy bears and a knife. Don't even think about trying to take them.

Despite Collin's distractions, we discuss a new conspiracy at Rotten Tomatoes to make Joker a box office failure. We think that there may be something else at play though. 

And since we're talking about DC movies, in hindsight, Zack Snyder's Big Bang (a.k.a. Justice League) with the DC Universe wasn't the rousing success that everyone had hoped for. Warner Bros. will likely have more success though now that they've signed J.J. Abrams to an exclusive deal. And even though we don't know for sure that he'll be working with their DC properties, it's a safe assumption that he'll at least be involved in some capacity. And if he is, you know it's going to be way more successful than MoviePass, right?

Gummy Bear Stabbing

Season 2, Ep. 385

We all have our favorite snack. For Zohner, lately, it's been Blue Bell Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Dough ice cream. Collin? He loves gummy bears. In fact, he loves them so much that if you come between him and his gummy bears, you're likely to lose an appendage. That's some serious snack love there.

But you know what else we love? Star Wars. And the footage that came out of Disney's D23 Expo was great. So is the final trailer for Joker. We discuss both on this week's episode. We also discuss a serious iOS hack that basically exposed everyone's everything for about two years (you iPhone users want to be aware of this) and a Foxit Reader data breach affecting more than 500 million users. #hackzohner is not in effect for those of you keeping track at home.
