Episode 91- Yeah Right

Episode 91- Yeah Right

January 9, 2022

Alright folks, we are back with another voluptuous little potato of a show for you today. Join us as we recount the skateboarding revival of the early 2000’s that swept the Midwest like a swifter wet jet. In doing so, we realize how many of our current interest and passions were first discovered, in some link, through skating. How much did Baker 3, MTV’s line-up of Jackass and Viva La Bam, Fuse TV, and the movie Grind ultimately shape our lives in small-town Kentucky? Well, that’s for you to listen to and find out.

You’d also really be doing us a solid if you checked out a few things of ours. Namely, our Facebook, twitter, and Instagram pages @theobscurecurio

There’s also of course where you can support the show, get exclusive content, and soon- receive shoutouts on the podcast, YouTube videos, and future short film projects. AND you can do this for just a dollar a month.

Episode 90- Look Inside This Bucket

January 5, 2022

Folks, I would be lying to ya if I said this episode wasn’t an absolute gobstopper. Most notably, we didn’t talk about nerd movies or mma once for pretty much the entire episode. Joey was in real rare form, and we had what I believe was one hell of a time. Such a good time, in fact, that I think you’ll have an equally good time just by listening to it. Hell, its worth a shot, isn’t it?

Whether you’re into hollow earth or swallow girth, super spirituality, or sea-faring maladies, this one’s got something for you. I sure hope you enjoy and go tell all you’re little friends to check it out. We sure would appreciate it.

On today’s episode, Joey and I discuss the making of our short film, Passing (written and directed by recent podcast guest Michael Ashcraft)- which as of the release of this episode is complete.

Check out the Discord for an exclusive private screening tonight, Sunday December 19th at 11:00pm Eastern.

Wampus also gives his full review of Spider-Man: No Way Home, which does have spoilers so heads up- that takes places from roughly 30 minutes into the show until about 48 minutes into the show if you want to skip that part.

Of course we also talk about the results of UFC 269, predictive programming, milkfish, the multiverse, the good lord, and how to tell if someone has Gone Fishin’.

Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @theobscurecurio

And by Golly, I sure hope you enjoy the show. Discord, Merch, Full Podcast Downloads, and More:

Episode 86- Mount Touchmore

December 11, 2021

As some of you may be aware- southwestern Kentucky, as well as parts of Missouri and Kansas were hit by a record-breaking tornado early this morning, Saturday December 11th. In Kentucky alone there are officially upwards of 50 casualties, with close to 100 expected to be confirmed. It was a real tragedy that was largely unexpected and unfortunately unafforded. So, if you have it both in your hearts and in your wallets to help even in a small way- I encourage you to donate to the Western KY Red Cross- who will be leading the way in cleanup and relief. They are taking donations through their Facebook page:


Okay folks, I have a great show for yous guys today. Wampus and I are live and in raw action- discussing tonight’s UFC 269 Oliveira Vs Poirier, our potential Mount Rushmore of MMA, Alien Invasion, The Singularity, Pop Tarts, Top Parts, and More. I sure hope you enjoy it.
