PODCAST: Mike & Billy - Episode 007 (12/27/12)

The show gets started with some Christmas talk and how neither guy has an "Uncle Eddie" relative, which leads into a conversation on how unrealistically Holiday Movies portray every family as beyond-full-blown dysfunctional.

During the Christmas break Mike attempted to create the perfect eggnog.

Mike and Billy discuss how ridiculous it is that Scary Movie 5 and The Haunted House are not only being made and coming out pretty close to each other, but are basically the same exact movie.

Why do the "rich & famous" drunk drive? Both agree the first order of business when they strike it rich is hiring a full-time driver.

The topic of how 24 hour news coverage is brought up... how it's basically what has created the huge market for reality TV, and is responsible for desensitizing us to things like "death videos."  During the reality TV talk, it's brought up that Mike was almost cast in a reality show called, "America's Biggest Asshole." But it was abandoned by SpikeTV due to legal issues.

There may be a "Intern Search" on The Mike & Billy Show in the near future... and don't forget to download the Spreaker app on your Android or iPhone so you can take us everywhere.  We highly recommend "toilet listening."

PODCAST: Mike & Billy - Episode 006 (12/20/12)

Episode #6 gets going with Mike & Billy making light of the technical difficulties they had run into earlier in the evening, which produced another of the infamous "lost shows"... once they're settled in the guys get into some of their upcoming Christmas plans, and Mike's attempt to surprise his finacé with a Christmas tree.

Mike recently took his car in for an oil change and ran into that all too familiar scenario... where the mechanic tries to use the fear of total destruction on Mike to get an up-sell on some repairs. This leads to discussing "Do It Yourself" instructional videos on YouTube.

We learn that Billy wants to have some kids just to pull a Kardashian and exploit his children for fame and fortune... and the guys come up with an idea for a ridiculous reality show, involving Snooki living INSIDE Khloe Kardashian for a week.

Mike and Billy talk a little bit about the tragic shooting in Newtown, CT... but Mike is having a really hard time expressing his feelings in a public setting. They also discuss the pros & cons of social media in when it comes to incidents like this, and how it affects "real life" situations in general.

After some brief WWE and Back To The Future talk, they come to the conclusion that John F. Kennedy should be on some form of US Currency. (A.D.D. - gotta love it)

and they wrap up with some thoughts on Ben Affleck's political aspirations... and Mike proclaims he wants to run for Emperor (or Sultan, he can't decide) of Massachusetts.

We hope you enjoy Episode #6 of The Mike & Billy Show... Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

PODCAST: Mike & Billy - Episode 005 (12/11/12)

Episode #5 of The Mike & Billy Show gets off and running with Billy telling us about the car accident he was in the night before.  The heavy traffic that he was in was mostly due to the Monday Night Football game, at Gillette Stadium, between the Patriots & Texans... this gets the guys talking about Fantasy Football and the NHL Lockout.

Mike's desire to get a DeLorean working to go back in time and put a stop to Gary Bettman (NHL Commissioner) brings up the conversation about Mattel releasing the Hoverboards from Back To The Future Part II, just in time for the Christmas season.

The song takes a serious turn as the guys talk about a news story out of Pennsylvania, involving two of "the worst parents EVER" as Mike put it.

To cleanse themselves after the last topic and to go out on a much lighter note.  Without worrying about the smoothness of his segueing, Mike shifts gears with the grace of a throat punch.

Mike & Billy wrap up the show discussing the topic of British comedy TV shows, "Peep Show" in particular, and how there should be an option with American cable companies so you can receive networks from other countries.

All that and more of the usual A.D.D. shenanigans, on Episode #5 of The Mike & Billy Show!

PODCAST: Mike & Billy - Episode 004 (12/5/12)

Episode #4 starts in the middle of a conversation about wrestling and movies... Mike & Billy had been talking about the WWE, which lead to a discussion about the movie Ready To Rumble. This had been going on for about 30 minutes when then decided to hit record and officially start the show.

They finish the conversation about the awfulness that was Ready To Rumble, and move on to the awesomeness that is Bill Murray. The newest in the long list of shenanigans that Bill has pulled, is calling Harold Ramis at 3am to tell him that he would do Ghostbusters 3. This takes us down the long and winding road of movies... from AMC editing Smokey and the Bandit for TV, the unnecessary sequels for National Lampoon's Vacation and A Christmas Story, the pile of garbage that is Charles Grodin's body of work (except for Midnight Run), 20 years of Quentin Tarantino, Jonah Hill possibly ruining at least part of Django Unchained, which somehow gets us to talking about the show Dave's Old Porn and Mike tweeting with Adult Film Legend - Vanessa del Rio.

The reason the Show was off last week was because Mike took a vacation down to Walt Disney World. Well while down there, Mike got engaged! He fills us in on the romantic proposal, right in front of Cinderella's Castle, as well as his antics while "Drinking 'round the World" in EPCOT, and getting tweets from THEE Roseanne.

All that and much, much more on Episode #4 of The Mike & Billy Show!
