Welcome to the home of The Kid-Free Weekend!  We're Jeff & Jennifer, and when the kids are away, we really do play!  We watch a lot of movies and tv, play video and board games, do some light cosplay, and then we podcast about our many favorite things.

It's the December holiday season, and that means it's STAR WARS TIME!  This year, Disney has gifted us Rogue One, a Star Wars tale designed to thrill the detail-oriented super-nerd in all of us... or almost all of us.  Between Jeff and Jennifer, one of them loved this movie, while the other was underwhelmed.  Lots to discuss and debate, but one thing that no one can argue:

BEST

VADER

EVER!!!!

Jeff & Jennifer had a quiet, kid-free Thanksgiving, but did their best to ease the pain by dorking out on the Xbox (Rock Band; Skyrim), trying out Jackbox and the HTC Vive with some friends, and watching one of 2016's top-ranked scary movies:  Hush.

This week we are joined by author and ultra-movie-nerd Kevin Smokler! Mr. Smokler just released his new book, Brat Pack America: A Love Letter to 80s Teen Movies, and he generously agreed to sit down with us to talk about John Hughes films, other beloved 80s movies, modern 80s nostalgia, and the dark, awful truth behind Gremlins.

Brat Pack America is available at bookstores nationwide and Amazon in both paperback and Kindle formats.
Be sure to look Kevin up on Twitter, kevinsmokler.com, or sign up for his newsletter - he's got a lot of great stuff worth reading!

This week, Jeff & Jennifer take a break from pop-culture nonsense to talk about election nonsense.  Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 White House race, and now Jeff is scared for every other race out there.  How did Trump win?  Are minorities and Muslims going to be OK?  They take on politics, economics, Black Lives Matter, and more!

Covering Stan Lee's Los Angeles Comic Con 2016, we discuss what we learned at the Stranger Things Panel featuring Shannon Purser, the actress who played Barb on the show.

Later, we take a question from that panel to THE designer of The Demogorgon monster, Aaron Sims.  From the Aaron Sims Creative booth on the floor of the exhibit hall, Mr. Sims was nice enough to talk with us about some of the concepts and requirements that went into the design of this terrifying creature.

Visit Aaron Sims Creative on the internet to learn more about his many amazing creations!  You can find the company on their homepage, Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram.

Jeff and Jennifer briefly reflect on ONE YEAR OF PODCASTING... and then - as Jeff turns 40 - it's back to the nerdy world when they talk a little bit of Stranger Things (no spoilers), a little more about Luke Cage (almost no spoilers), and a whole lot of Suicide Squad!

A few months ago - in an effort to help Jennifer with her health - Jeff planned out a spa day... of a sort.  This was a special kind of spa where you stick a tube in your butt and let the world's cares just wash away.  Yep, they got colonics!  And yep, it took a LONG time for them to be ready to talk about the experience, but here it is!
