Minisode 3: What If you cheated death? Woke up in the morgue?

In this Minisode we explore what would happen if you “cheated death” ….throwing a wrench in the hands of fate …If you somehow managed to escape your expiration date if if even for a small bit of time.

We also run promos for the What Were They Thinking? Podcast and the Most Okayest Podcast

As always much love goes to Zombie Hyperdrive for allowing us to use “Red Eyes” as our intro/outro music.

Episode 29: What if you could choose the when and how of your death?

I don’t care how you get here…but you WILL come to me.

When Death comes to claim most of us, the setting is usually envisioned as a peaceful one, though possibly wrought with feelings of sadness, loss or regret from those around during that time… but what if you could choose the time and method of your demise?  We’re talking about how we wanna shed our mortal coils this episode, as well as some famous folk who might’ve called it correctly, so grab a drink, and get comfy as we discuss.

We have promos for Hysteria 51 and The Most Okayest Podcast this time around, show them some love and let them know you heard their promo on our show!

As always big ups to Zombie Hyperdrive for our rad intro/outro music!

Minisode – State of the podcast (no, we aren’t quitting *eyeroll*)

I’m sure this sign gets passed a lot on the highway of life.

Ever have one of those periods of time where you can’t get anything done because of your job?  This has been one of those times for us here at the What If Podcast.  Our job is physically demanding a lot of the time, and with the weather as it’s been, it’s doubly so.  We apologize for not having an episode on schedule, and we aren’t trying to make an excuse, but in the real world, work comes before play.  We’d love to be able to do this podcast full-time, but right now that isn’t happening so we need to have something to cover bills and late-night-post-recording-fast-food excursions.  We’ll be back in a bit with a full episode for ya. Stay tuned!

Episode 28 – Interview with Jon Gries…and something about lasers..but JON GRIES!

This is what real talent looks like.

You may know him as Lazlo Hollyfield in Real Genius, Det. Tony Montoya in Running Scared, Ronnie Wingate in Get Shorty, Uncle Rico in Napoleon Dynamite, or Casey in the Taken franchise and more recently as Dr. Roberts on Dream Corp, LLC. on Adult Swim; the greeat Jon Gries has been a consummate ‘that guy’ character actor on the big and small screen for nearly 40 years.  We had the fantastic opportunity to talk with him about his role in Real Genius, specifically what his thoughts were if the lasers in the movie were real.

Caution, your imminent vaporization via laser is about to begin!

 

We hope you enjoy this special episode!

Episode 27 – 2017 Year in Review!!

2017- “Why are you running!?”

2017 will go down in history as a very bad year for everyone… except the ultra-rich.

In this episode, we give a brief (yeah, it’s nearly three hours long, but that was skipping a lot of what happened.) rundown of the things that shaped this 365-day-long waterboarding session on the world.

Episode 26 with UDPC Podcast – What if you survived a Nuclear Attack?

Episode 25: What if computers were never created?

No computers, eh? Then where will we find porn?

For our 25th episode we explore whether it would be better without computers, had they never been invented back in the 1930s and 40s.  We also announce our 2017 fundraiser for Toys for Tots.

Episode 24 : What if the Joker has super sanity?

“Oh, the irony! Me, flying out from the darkness–like a bat. You know what I love about the darkness, Batman? I can see my reflection in it. My face is the face of the deep. And it goes on forever. What do you see? Do you see your reflection? Is that why you sit in the darkness? Answer me! When you stare at the darkness, does it stare back at you?” –The Joker, Gotham City Sirens, Vol. 1 #24

In this episode we  delve into the possibility that the Joker has “Super-Sanity”.  Are his actions that of a homicidal and psychopathic criminal mastermind or an enlightened individual, an agent of chaos bathed in the deep abyss of nihilism? Tune into this episode… Same What If time … Same What If Podcast!

Episode 23: What if Lincoln and Kennedy survived their assassination attempts?

“Four score” and all that
“Ask not what your country…”etc.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When we hear the name Lincoln or Kennedy, we think of what are perhaps the two most influential leaders this country has had.  We are also reminded of their tragic fate; but what if they survived those morbid ordeals?  In this episode, we are joined by one half of The Recasting Couch Podcast, Mike, as we discuss what might’ve happened if these two paragons of American leadership dodged the proverbial (and literal) bullet.

 

-Editor’s Note-

Don’t worry, the audio gets better around the 17 minute mark.

Episode 22: Reddit Hypotheticals

In this off the cuff episode we make whiskey out of lemons…Plainly put, the plans for our crossover episode unexpectedly fell apart. It happens from time to time and that’s just life. Regardless we decided to toss our pennies into the Reddit well to see which hypotheticals it would bear. We encounter a range of half serious but mostly funny possibilities. Definitely a NSFW episode so enjoy at your own leisure…
