  • Episode 221!

    We are joined this week by the lovely and talented Jon Stark of the Arts and Crass podcast which you can find on iTunes and Stitcher.  Jon also has a one man show called The Insufferable Spiteness of Beaver at the Bryant Lake Bowl February 5th, 6th, 12th, & 13th. Follow the link to order tickets online. We talk about all kinds of nerdy cartoon stuff this week, comedy, and things to do with your ashes after you’re dead.

    Speaking of comedy, you can find the clip of Bill Young’s “Dinner at SuperAmerica” bit Jena was referring to here. (I tried to embed it, but the player wasn’t working right when I did.

    Oh yeah! Speaking of Stitcher, we’re on that now. For all you youngsters.

  • Episode 220!

    This week Matt is back and no one cares! We’re also joined by Jennifer of the Poly in the Cities podcast. We dork out for a while then get into how ethical non-monogamy works. Turns out, we couldn’t cover it all in one episode. I guess that’s prolly why Jennifer and her co-hosts do a whole podcast about it.

    Matt will be a guest on Poly in the Cities on Friday the 30th of January. If you have a question you would like answered while Matt is a guest on their show, you can email matt@aonpodcast.com with it, or go the the Poly in the Cities website and use their anonymous question submission form.

  • Episode 219!

    Sorry for the delay in releasing this episode. You can blame Matt for being a little bitch and having a migraine.

    So, friend of the show Pedantic Eric stopped by this week. What did they talk about? Did they replace Matt? Who knows? You’ll have to listen and find out!

  • Episode 218!

    Charles Knutson joins us this week for a delightful conversation that asks the hard hitting questions like, who would you choose to replace Bill Murray in Groundhog’s Day to change the tone of the movie? Also, how much fun does an ARG/Ingress/assassins-style game set in the Minneapolis skyways sound like? Right? We also answer one of the toughest Fast Five questions yet.

  • Episode 214!

    The lovely and talented Levi Weinhagen joins us this week for a delightful discussion of nachos, parenting, and grief as related to computer loss.

    Thats fun Levi

    Levi also tells us about his podcast Pratfalls of Parenting (turns out he hasn’t got all the answers yet). and his new show That’s Fun! which features co-host Jen Scott and takes place monthly at Honey!

    Scott is here to talk about music. His band Orkestar Bez Ime [or-KESS-tar behz EE-meh]–(“orchestra without a name” in Bulgarian) has a new release you can find on their Bandcamp page.

    Orkestar Bez Ime. OBI if you're nasty.

    Scott tells us about playing folk music from the other side of the planet, traveling to learn from the real deal, and the important difference between “gypsy” and “Roma”.

    Of course, being us, we also spend a good deal of time talking about glasses, local student protests related to Ferguson, and grammar before we get to that.

  • Episode 211!

    This week we are joined by James of Vault 404 and the Awfulcopter podcast!


    James, being an experienced podcaster himself, helps us get right to the important bits, such as, lady bits. We spend a fair amount of time talking about vaginal health this episode, then follow it up with an excellent hot dog eating story. I know, I know, it sounds like a joke. It might be.

    Oh, as promised, here’s the two images of overly sexualized fighting game characters we talk about in this weeks Fast Five:


  • Episode 210!

    This week, we’re joined by Derek Phillips. Derek is, simply put, the best. You’ll be able to tell when you listen to the episode. We talk about dancing, drinking, pot lucking and (in response to an email question from a listener) coming out. Also, mystery packages from Canada!

    As promised, here’s a video to help explain what the hell Morris Dancing is:

    Makes perfect sense now, doesn’t it?

  • Episode 206!

    Hey folks, this week we sit down with longtime listener, friend, and recently certified SCUBA diver Steffen. Steffen deserves mad respect for recording late with us, tackling what is prolly the coolest Fast Five yet, and not dying underwater. Take a listen.

  • Episode 205!

    It’s another scotch month here at AoN, you have been warned.

    We’re joined this episode by return guest Cetius Scotchbringer! We talk about lots of stuff like:
