Checked Out Episode 216- Cosby's Puddin' Pop and Governor Christie's Belly on Trump

R&B Singer, Marquis Allen, sits in with the boys to discuss Cosby and Trump. What can we say about Bill Cosby that hasn't already been said? Having grown up in the 80's and knowing Bill as "Doctor Huxtable", it is difficult to believe all of the allegations leveled against him within the last year. But, as "Newman" said in Oliver Stone's "JFK", "There's a lot of smoke there, but  some fire." And it seems the winds are changing direction and blowing more of that smoke away, revealing just how big and hot those flames really are. (We don't mean rape is hot. We mean, the heat is on the man.) Still, with all the horror and creepiness of these stories, the boys manage to make fun of it and attempt their best Cosby impersonations. Of course, they fail miserably. Donald Trump is winning fans Left and Right. While many don't agree with his politics (what little we know of them at this point) many of those same people find

Checked Out Episode 215- The Marquis Allen Interview

R&B sensation, Marquis Allen, stops by the studio for an in-depth interview with Matt and the boys and THIS TIME you'll get to replay it! Marquis tells us about his life growing up in North Carolina where the Klan lurked behind every tree; how women throw themselves at him and how church girls are easy. That's just the tip of the iceberg! Marquis shares a lot more with us in this full-show interview. Ladies, you DON'T want to miss this one!

Checked Out Ep 213- Driving a Tesla and Caitlyn Jenner on the ESPYs

Hey! There're no audio problems this time. Yippee! In this episode Matt tells the boys about his experience driving a Tesla. If you haven't done so yourself, make friends with someone who has one and take it for a spin. Who cares about saving the environment? Those things are a blast and THAT is why we should all get them. Now go play the lottery so you can afford it. The boys get into the big news of the last week, namely, Bruce  Caitlyn Jenner's [stomach] moving sermon at the ESPY Awards. Have you ever wondered why women get so much plastic surgery that they can't move their lips? We do too. Oh, but, don't think you'll find an answer to that question in this episode. Nah. We just mock it... and the speech. There was supposed to be a second topic, but the Tesla conversation went too long. So, sorry.

Checked Out Shorts 03- Cracker Barrell

Are you fascinated by Cracker Barrell? Of course you are. Who isn't? We briefly discuss it in this Checked Out Short. Music Credits "Exhilarate" Kevin MacLeod ( Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 Check out this episode!

Checked Out Shorts 02- "Rebel Yell"

We record everything from the moment we sit down to the moment we get up to leave for the night. We feel that the best stuff comes out when we're not actually doing the show. So, from time-to-time we will upload these little shorts taken from what we called "pre-show banter". In this clip, Pete discovers that Rebel Wilson, the most annoying and obnoxious and unfunny comedic actress out there, is a phony. Check out this episode!

Checked Out Episode 211- Welcome to the Show, Czig Meister Brewing Co.

*** A word to the wise: this show should be listened to in headphones or speakers of better quality than the one on your phone. Due to a technical problem, this episode was recorded (accidentally) on one microphone...the one built into the laptop we record on. However, the show must go on and this one especially because we interview our first sponsor, Matt Czigler, founder of Czig Meister Brewing Company in Hackettstown, NJ. Matt's a very cool guy (naturally...I mean, it comes with the name for God's sake) and he sure knows his beer. Matt (Josephs), Pete and Jimmy the Italian sure are enjoying familiarizing themselves with Czig Meister's beer too. Keep up with Czigmeister online!

Checked Out Episode 210- Hollywood Reboots, Gay Marriage & the Confederate Flag

The boys have finally, actually , reached double digits in Season 2 of Checked Out in this episode. To celebrate, they unceremoniously discuss Hollywood reboots. Pete throws out movies titles from a list of 31 films that are currently being rebooted  ---ugh, am I the only one who hates that word in this context?-- and Matt and Jimmy the Italian react to the thought of so many classics being ruined for the new generation; and we discover one of Matt's other phobias. Then, in a very special segment, the boys tackle the complex issue of the recently legalized gay marriage and the convtroversial Confederate Flag. Mary from Illinois, you may get bored. But for the rest of you with minds, we think you will enjoy this laid-back episode of checked out. Related Articles Music Credits "Exhilarate", "Matt's Blues", "Motherlode", "Organic
