Episode 57 - The End To Trilogy (But Wait! It Get's Worse)


Greetings, citizens! First and foremost we're sorry you didn't get this episode much earlier. We recorded it on Sunday. Folks...this episode was a BITCH to put up. From technical difficulties while recording, to file problems, to computer problems...it was like it didn't want to be put out. Nevertheless, here it is. The last in the trilogy of Steve's "hangups". We wanted to call it "The Babadook Series" (you'll hear why), but that would be false advertising to any new listeners. That's just a small part of this episode though.

Here are just a few things we discuss:

  • Attention Deficit Order's introduction of "Duck Butter" to us.
  • Jason Mamoa vs Lenny Kravitz: whose got worse Duck Butter
  • The coolness factor of Billy Dee Williams
  • Listener mail / voicemail
  • The joy of kegeling
  • Catching "The Babadook"
  • Wedding songs
  • The Billy Joel concert fiasco
  • The fantastic weekend of Johnny Bucks
  • The podcast family
  • Steve's definition of a "quickie"

 And there's plenty more. Seriously.

 So for now, sit back, press "play" and enjoy the ridiculousness that is Heroes of Noise Episode 57.

Episode 56 - Saving Lives, Oral Cancer Fallout, and The Not Buying It Quiz


Greeting Citizens! We're back with what we want you to think of as a prelude to this weekend's show. At the last minute we decided to give you 2 shows this week. We're treating this one like a pregame and recording the big show this Saturday. Cool? Cool!

So for those of you that have been around, you know how it goes. Here come the tangents. When the show starts out we learn Dan can save your life and he tells you how you can save one too. We learn that apple cider vinegar does not feel good shooting through your nostrils and this inspires more health related information.

Listener feedback gets us back into last week's discussion about whether oral sex by itself gives you throat cancer (Spoilers: NOT the case). However, Steve's requesting documentation from future partners and drawing a line in the sand with the whole thing.

We cap things off with a quiz and see if Dan's buying it. How does he do? That's for you to find out. So that's it. Push "play", have fun, and we'll talk to you this weekend. We hope you enjoy Episode 56. 🤘🏽✊🏾


Help us be victorious. Please vote for Heroes of Noise in the

My Rode Cast Competition

Episode 55 - Child's Play , Ma , Aladdin, Pen15, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Trigger Warning


Greetings Citizens! Welcome to the big show! Episode 55 is here for your listening pleasure.

This week Steve is back in action but Dan has caught the bug unfortunately. That doesn't stop us from having plenty to talk about.

Right off the bat we want to let you know that this episode is a WHOLE LOT of random conversation for the first 70 min. You've Been Warned.

The topics include a man killing a mountain lion with his bare hands, Valentine's Day,  Dan got his Coheed and Cambria / Mastodon tickets, Brushes with celebrity and the possible reactions they might induce, and throat cancer from oral sex (Sorry). 

We eventually work our way into discussing our watches for the week which include the Childs Play, Ma, Frozen 2, and Aladdintrailers. Dan has watched Pen15on Hulu, the 35th Anniversary of Nightmare on Elm Streetat the cinema, Steve gives a mea culpa about Russian doll, and we both have some ...well, let's just say some words about Killer Mike's Trigger Warningon Netflix.

It's time to press "play" folks. But before you do...  

Please do us a huge solid and vote for Heroes of Noise in the My Rode Cast Competition here.

Help your boys get a win. We'd really appreciate it. Thank you in advance!

SEASON 3 FINALE!! S3E10 - " The Light Above"


Ladies and Gentlemen of The Congregation....

We are already done with Season 3 of PREACHER. Seriously, it just flew by. On our S3 finale, we go in depth on Episode 10 "The Light Above". SPOILERS: This episode crushed it. But not without a cost. We say goodbye to some people that put in legendary performances.

We at The Word want to let you know that we're not going away any time soon. We're just changing hats. If you like what we've been doing and want to keep listening, there's a simple solution: Subscribe to our other podcast Heroes of Noise. (Show info below).

S3E09 - " Schwanzkopf"


People?... We're all the way to the end. 1 more episode left. Where fit the time go? On the penultimate episode of The Word S3E09 "Schwanzkopf" we put in work. We warn you: We were on one when we hit "Record" this week. This episode is a long one, but we don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. But there may have been a gas leak, because we go all over the place. Truth be told, this may be one of our favorite episodes of The Word just because we had a blast recording it. If you've been around for a while, we just get on that "Steve and Dan Bullshit" like we do on Heroes of Noise

(our other podcast, if you're new. Oh and welcome! Where ya been?).

Heads up that we're pre recording the finale this weekend on Sunday afternoon. We'd love to hear from all of you one last time this season. Make sure to leave us a voicemail or email so we don't miss you all too much. Let us know how we did this season. What did you like? What didn't you like?

Greeting Citizens! Dan Here. Steve is taking a well-deserved week off so since we couldn't bring you a regular episode, we thought we'd make up for it in a big way:

These guys were so great to chat with. Very friendly and they had a ton to say about Video Palace. I'm happy to report that with the exception of a few veryminor details, this is a non-spoiler interview so feel safe to dive right in. 

We'll be back next week with a regular show. But for now, pop those earbuds in, push "play" and sit back and enjoy this exclusive interview, courtesy of ya boys.
