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!
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.
We hope you enjoy this special episode!
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.

With the very real threat of nuclear annihilation over childish tweets between two very problematic leaders making headlines; we sat down with the guys from the UDPC Podcast to wax about the implications of that and what would happen in the aftermath…If you survived.

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.
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!
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.
Don’t worry, the audio gets better around the 17 minute mark.
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…
When we are young, we’re taught that Satan is the ultimate form of evil, a wicked boogeyman who would rather steal your soul and damn you to eternal torment in hell than give you the time of day…but what if he were given the proverbial ‘shaft’ by a jealous god who knew he was making more sense than ‘Him’ and feared an uprising? On this episode we explore the idea that Satan could merely be religion’s biggest scapegoat, a catch-all excuse for all its shortcomings.
This episode, we’re talking with The Make Me a Fan Podcast! We’re doing their format, and we try to make them a fan of taxing churches. We talk a little about if churches should be taxed, which churches should be, whether it’s an overreach of government, and how that could be helpful, or a bane to churches. Enjoy!
