Episode 96 – Batbloke Vs. Superguy

The epic battle of heroes has come to The Question in Episode 96 as we pit the Caped Crusader against the Man of Steel. We asked simply: Who’s better, Batman or Superman? Our listeners explored the question from varied and unexpected angles, and the discussion took a few surprising turns!

We had a tea report, despite not having tea, a What Do You Think of That, and we selected the winner of our Batman vs Superman giveaway! An exciting episode indeed!

Our next episode, tentatively scheduled for recording on April 30, will ask the Question: Why do we let spoiled fans with a sense of entitlement get to us? We’ll be joined LIVE in The Question Podcast studio by guest host Andy Poulastides! Please have your feedback to us by 12pm EST on April 30 for inclusion in the episode!

Episode 95 – Stranger Enrager

Episode 95 is here, wherein Melissa and Sean spend the Easter holiday talking smack on strangers, while answering the Question: “What’s something you see a stranger do that makes you immediately dislike them?”

There is also talk of tea, the appearance of real-life Nazi fem(inist) bot, and a pasta-induced giggle fit.

Recording of Episode 96 is currently scheduled for Sunday, April 10. We’re requesting your feedback by Noon, EST on the Question: “Who is better – Batman or Superman?” We’re not looking at who would beat whom in a fight (although that can certainly be taken into consideration as part of your feedback!) but, looking at both characters on the whole, who do you feel is a better superhero, and why?

We’re also going to have a giveaway tied into this episode, so if you want some fun, free, geeky loot, make sure to get your feedback into us!

Episode 94 – Behind the Mask

In Episode 94, Melissa and a guest co-host debate the positive or negative worth of the world’s most infamous hacktivist group by asking, “Is Anonymous a force for good?”

But first, our hosts drink tea, express delusions of grandeur, and perhaps inadvertently start a culture war.

In our next episode, we will be taking a look at the snap judgments we all make by asking, “What’s something you see a stranger do that makes you immediately dislike them?”

We are tentatively scheduled to record on Sunday March 27th (yes, Easter Sunday – a perfect time to judge books by covers and shit on strangers), so for now please have any feedback in by noon EST on that date.

Episode 93 – That’s Just Criminal

In Episode 93, we uncover the social media behaviors that grind everyone’s gears by asking, “What are the three biggest ‘crimes’ people regularly commit on social media?”

Warning: this episode contains copious amounts of swearing and rambling, along with the crushing of souls. Oh, and then there’s more swearing.

We also find time in this episode to take on another devious 3 questions from Lee Medcalf, which leads to some infighting that threatens any possible future of our hosts signing up for Starfleet together.

Confused? You won’t be after this episode of The Question Podcast.

Next week, we tackle more serious ground as we discuss everyone’s favorite Hacktivist group and ask: Is ANONYMOUS a force for good? We’ll be recording on Sunday, Feb 28, so please have your feedback to us by noon, EST for inclusion!

Episode 92 – The Next Big Thing

In Episode 92, we examine some of the entertainment properties (and pork products) that should command everyone’s attention by asking the question, “What should we all be ‘geeking out’ over?”

But first, we discuss tea, David Bowie, and the world’s most selfish heavy metal band. We also take a moment to give a special dedication to a fallen friend and listener.

In our next episode (scheduled to be recorded on Sunday, January 31st), we want to find out what social media habits, practices, and general behavior really grinds your gears by asking, “What are the three biggest ‘crimes’ people regularly commit on social media?”

Episode 91 – Big Fat Deal

In Episode 91, we cut to the heart of the body positivity movement by asking, “Is it OK to be fat?”

Before diving in to the topic and hearing from our listeners, we face the gauntlet that is Three Questions, with three diabolical queries submitted by the master of cringe-worthy, potentially shame-inducing, introspective inquiry himself, Mr. Lee Medcalf.

In our next episode (scheduled to be recorded on Sunday, January 17th), we seek out the next big thing, or what should be, by asking “What should we all be geeking out over?” (In other words, what movies, TV shows, books, comics, apps, etc are you REALLY into and think we all need to get on board with?).

Let us know your thoughts at thequestionpodcast (at) gmail (dot) com, or visit our Contact page for details on our Twitter and Facebook Group. However you reach out to us, we want to hear from you! The deadline for feedback is noon (EST) on Sunday, January 17th.

Episode 90 – Back To School

After 9 months away, this baby is back, dropping a brand new episode on you out of the blue. We have some help in this return episode from some amazing students in the Czech Republic, who have sent us questions via their teacher (and loyal Questioneer), Leigh Newton.

After discussing some of the reasons for our time away, shamelessly apologizing for the stops-and-starts, and laying out our plans for the podcast going forward, we dive into the questions put before us (and even give the kids a little bit of homework!).

We will return after the New Year, recording the weekend of January 3rd, when we will tackle the subject of fat shaming and body positivity by asking simply, “Is it OK to be Fat?”

We’d love to hear your thoughts!

Episode 89 – Getting To Know You

Good things come in small packages, and Episode 89 is (we hope!) no exception! Our What Do You Think of That article takes us to familiar territory, and we wax poetic about our new coffee maker, then we discuss this week’s Question: If you were allowed only one question to determine the character of a person, what question would you ask them, and why?

Next week, our Question is: Does culture drive technology, or does technology drive culture?

Episode 88 – #You’re Fired

Episode 88 is a hodgepodge of tangents! We discuss ill-tempered badgers, new phones, and a break in the weather and that’s all before we get to our Question – Should people be subject to discipline by their employers because of their social media activity?
Next week, we dig deep and ask a philosophical Question: If you were allowed only one question to determine the character of a person, what question would you ask them, and why?

Question 87 – Slave to Success

Episode 87 – This episode of the Question was recorded before a live studio audience of interrupting cats. Ok, maybe “audience” is being generous. But we switched things up and recorded in a new location just to test things out. Is it a success or a failure? And will you judge us for it? Take a listen as we discuss this week’s Question: Is it fair to hold artists to the standard of their previous successes?

Next week, our Question will look at how social media impacts our working lives, and whether or not it really should. We ask: Should people be subject to discipline by their employers because of their social media activity?
