Ep. 162: Back in the Villa!
The pandemic drags on, but we've had enough. Zoom fatigue and lack of life fatigue has reached its limit and we decided it was time to get back into the outdoor studio, so we're 6 feet apart in the Villa Papagna and life sort of feels right again. Some old fashioned Cheesesteak & Chowder is on tap with chit chat about the return of sports, some people who need to get their ass back on track and the future dark lord between the pipes for the Bruins... Darth Vladar.

Ep. 161: Tomdemic
A full-blown Tomdemic has broken out with the news that Tom Brady will be leaving the Pats. We discuss in full, along with some commiserating over the shutdown of the sports world. BAD AUDIO ALERT: due to coronavirus quarantining, we sound like we are underwater, since we were forced to scramble and record from some JV call recording app on our iphones. Apologies in advance...

Ep. 160: New Year, New Material, NFL Playoff Rants
We decided to finish off the year with some old school Cheesesteak & Chowder. There's a dash of hijinks, a pinch of chicanery, a full scoop of Anthony's high hopes for his 9-7 Eagles, and a bowlful of Jason's panic over his "doomed" 12-4 Patriots, as we prepare for the NFL Playoffs. Cheers!

Ep. 159: Palooza-gate
It's been a while since we bitched about our sports teams, so we're throwing it back to the O.G. C&C to open the show. That parlays into some fresh takes on the problems with officiating and instant replay (7:20). Then it's the return of America's favorite game - "Who Sucks More?" - and this week features movie sequels and a deluxe edition of "-paloozas, -gates, and -gasms" (23:05). Anthony then dives us into a little street name knowledge clouding among highways, freeways, boulevards, and more (35:40). We do a quick take on how much money we won't be wasting on Disney+ and other new streaming services (41:53). Finally, we wrap up with a brand new bracket showdown game that pits Flo, Mayhem, and all the cheesiest Insurance commercial mascots against each other, leaving C&C to judge the best and the worst (48:04).

Ep. 157: Char-Colgate & Eddie Money Tribute
It's a Mix Tape Mafia and Cheesesteak & Chowder crossover episode with our Eddie Money (RIP) tribute and an extended "New Music Monday". We take some issue and theorize the genesis of the new Charcoal toothpaste trend that's sweeping the shelves. And with the recent discovery of Celebrity Amazon Shops, we start planning the items for the ultimate C&C Amazon shop. And speaking of Amazon, Alexa Quivers 2.0 makers her return to the studio, sitting in the producer's chair and offering zero help...

It's the debut of our new "Shit We Missed" segment as we revisit some undiscussed nuggets from the Top Gun podcast (3:40). We discuss some upcoming fall wedding predicaments and play a wedding-themed version of America's favorite game, "Who Sucks More?" (9:30). Anthony digs into a "Shit we care too much about" rant on resetting his coffee-machine clock after power outages. (18:45). We discuss the news of the upcoming real-life Field of Dreams and apply our expertise in "If We Ran It" (20:15). We discuss and debate who we'd most like to run into driving the drink cart on a golf course (25:35). Jason asks why the notary public is still in my life? (30:25) which launches a magnificent new C&C business idea... the Ubery Public. We then dive into some new rules regarding restaurant signs on freeway exits (34:25). Jason revisits the Banana Splits to discuss the new upcoming movie that turns the splits into murderers (41:34). Finally, Jason calls out his dog Biscuit to "Get Your Ass back on Track" for her crazy peeing tactics (45:33).

Ep. 155: Top Gun mega-pod!!
We celebrate, dissect, and critique one of our favorite summer movies from our youth - Top Gun!! It's a cheesy, glorious romp through Miramar... C&C style!! We'll dig into the best call signs, the Mt. Rushmore of one-liners, and bring in the Mix Tape Mafia to discuss the best and worst tunes from the Top Gun soundtrack. Of course, some movie elements end up victims of "Why are you still in my life?" We speculate about what we've seen in the trailer for the 2020 Top Gun: Maverick sequel, and toss out our own suggestions in a special "If We Ran It." And gobs and gobs more... So strap into your silver doves, oil up your volleyball abs, and get ready to crash and burn in a great ball of fire!

Ep. 153: OJ Tweets & Panera Power Moves
The Juice is 72, out of the clink, and tweeting from the links. We play a new game called "OJ Did It" where we try to guess if a tweet is a (blood) red herring or an actual tweet from OJ. Jason calls out Panera for its bread bowl soups and we dig into the mail bag to read an interesting "potentially authentic email" that reflects the powerful influence of the C&C universe.

Ep. 152: Paisopoly with Jimmies
Lots of ice cream talk this episode - fresh off some recent trips to New England, Jason dives into the Jimmies vs. Sprinkles debate and why are Dippin' Dots still in my life? We play a game of Paisopoly... sifting through some of the promotionally branded monopoly games out there and trying to guess what the Boardwalk and Park Place properties are for each of them.

We pull some summer sci-fi movie franchises into America's favorite game of "Who Sucks More?" and call in the grammar police on short notice. Anthony calls out The Fast & the Furious and asks "why are they still in my life?" and we offer up some good sports takes and suggestions. Also... we wrap up with a quick rundown of our US Open fantasy draft.

Ep. 147: Shit we care way too much about
We dive into some NHL and NBA playoff debates and wonder if it's good or bad that the refs swallow their whistles in OT or that seeding and home ice means zilch in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Our new segment "shit we care way too much about" debuts and we realize we could pretty much call the entire podcast that. But hey, that's what we're here for...

Ep. 138: Whalers, Near Beer, & 2019
We kick things off with some live podding from the PNC Arena where we took in the debut of the Hurricanes "throwback" Hartford Whalers sweaters, complete with "Brass Bonanza" pumping over the PA as they threw down with Jason's Boston Bruins. Later in the summit lodge, interim producer @theHunterGames brings us some eerily familiar beer in Pappy's Products and we discuss a few wraps to 2018 and upcoming thoughts for 2019.

Ep. 135: Halloween, Hall & Oates, and Red Sox Gloating!!

We also premiere the first behind the curtain test run of the C&C video feed. Cheers!

Ep. 129: Vlad P. in the CCCP, Smirnoff, Stroganoff, and bad TV.
We dig into the gmail bag this week in the long-awaited return of "potentially authentic emails" including one from loyal listener Vlad P. in the CCCP (8:02). Reese's gets a call out this week (12:22) and we discuss surprise parties and gender reveal parties in this week's "Why R U Still in My Life?" (18:35). We bring you another edition of our fall TV pitch sessions - C&C style (27:09) where we run through a list of upcoming new TV shows by title, and try to predict what the premise should be. Then we dip into an offshoot game of "Revive, Remake, Reject" where Jason gives Anthony a variety of old TV shows and he has to guess if they are getting "Revived" with the old cast, "Remade" with a new cast, or if they are "Rejects" aka, Jason's red herrings. Enjoy the TV theme songs in this segment as well. And last but not least, be sure to stay to the end when we throw it to our Russian correspondents in the field, Smirnoff & Stroganoff (1:00:06) who give us a live Pappy's Products review of the new "budweiser blends" orange and grapefruit beverages, live from the links.

Ep. 120: Bean Bag Studios
It's our first episode from Pappy's new pad, aka "Bean Bag Studios," with genuine imported live concert hall reverb. We reflect on the death of the Olympics, whether or not teams should be called "Worlds Champions" and one of Jason's favorite bands gets called out for an atrocious album that nobody knew about. AND... we present our C&C movie towns Mt. Rushmore - i.e. the best flicks set in Boston and Philly respectively... with a twist!

Happy Podtoberfest! We debut our new game, "Who Sucks More?" in this epicsode, as well as a Mt. Rushmore of our respective sports guilty pleasures.

Ep. 93: Smirnoff & Stroganoff
We kick things off with our thoughts on April Fool's Day and quickly learn that our studio sidekick "Alexa" is going to be salty throughout the evening. Have you ever wondered what flavors make up the unique taste of Dr. Pepper? (8:27). We crack open the secret 23-flavor formula.
