Recent Heroes of Noise Episodes

Episode 81 - Sony, Disney, & Spider-Man, Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark, The Kitchen, Long Shot


Greeting Citizens!

Did you miss us? Probably not.as much as we missed recording a Heroes Of Noise Episode. Anytime we have a lapse in recording we always tend to have a great time recording the next episode and this was no exception. Only thing is that Steve had a power outage and lost his vocal track to we had to start over and lost some time. This show is just a bit shorter then our normal show because of that. not by much..but it is definitely shorter.

It's been too long so we won't waste your time with too much to read here.

On this episode we talk about the Spider-Man's future as he's no longer shared by Sony. We have a discussion about timeless music lyrics vs today's lyrics. This causes Dan to introduce you to Ambjaay's "Uno" for some reason (apologies in advance). Plus we read an iTunes review and chat about other random topics.

We also have a few movies to talk about. We've both seen Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark and Long Shot, and Dan's seen The Kitchen. We give you our thoughts on all 3 films. 

Ok folks. We're done with describing what's on this episode. It's more of a "listen and enjoy" kind of thing.

Have at it.


Episode 80 - TOOL Fear Inoculum, Aladdin, Hobbs and Shaw, and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood


Greeting Citizens, and welcome to the very late Episode 80.

We almost didn't put the show out this week due to a corrupt file. But after a little (ok, a lot) of work we're back in business. This week Dan talks about TOOL's first new music in 13 years. That comes in the form of their single "Fear Inoculum". Their album of the same name drops on August 30th. Dan also got the new Regal Unlimited pass and used it to see Aladdin, Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw, as well as Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Steve also saw the latter and shares his thoughts on the 9th Tarantino film.

We'll keep it short this week as we are quite tardy. We hop you enjoy the episode and we'll talk to you again later this week when we drop Episode 81 as well as the lattes episode of The Word: The Unofficial PREACHER Podcast.



Episode 79 - The Noise Talks The Boys


Greetings to the Heroes of Noise Community for the second time this week.  Welcome to Episode 79. We brought a friend a long for this one in the form of one Johnny Bucks.

This week we devote an entire episode to the adaptation of Garth Ennis' The Boys, which was recently released on Amazon Prime Video. This show was tailor made for us and we seriously could go on and on about it. However, we decided to keep this to mostly non-spoilers so that the people that haven't seen it yet, or perhaps the ones that are swayed by this podcast will go in fresh. There are a couple moments where we do get into spoilers but we do give you warning so you can jump ahead if you want to.

We quickly found that one episode is not nearly enough time to talk about all of the things we wanted to. Outside of spoilers, there's just so many things we want to directly compare to the comic, then there's theories and predictions, etc. Needless to say we will be addressing all of this on future episodes.

We hope you enjoy the conversation that we had about this amazing new show. So much to the point that you feel compelled to watch it. Warning: It's not for everyone.

That said, it's time to do your thing and put us in your ears now. We'll talk to everyone next week when we drop our 80th episode (we're getting close to 100. how's that for some impressive math?).

Ok everyone, dig in. 🤘🏽✊🏾

Episode 78- Steve Steps Into The 36 Chambers


Greeting Citizens! Welcome to Episode 78.

This week we spend the first half of the show catching up with each other and answering listener mail. Of course this goes all over the place because it's us.

The second half finds us closing out our Wu-Tang Clan discussions as Steve does a deep dive into their classic debut album Enter The Wu-Tang 36 chambers. If you're not familiar with Wu-Tang by now, this is the one that'll get you up to speed. 

We love doing these music podcasts so expect more of them from time to time. We're keeping the notes short and sweet this time around.

Time to push play and maybe learn a thing or two. We'll be back next week with our regular show.

We hope you enjoy.🤘🏽✊🏾

Episode 77 - Midsommar, Holey Moley, House Rewatch, IntoThe Dark: Culture Shock, Perpetual Grace LTD


Ladies and Gentlemen of the podcast community, we are back to give you your second serving of Heroes of Noise for the week.

Welcome to Episode 77!

This week we 100% winged the episode and damn it if we didn't have a good time doing so. We start this week's show out with our final verdict on fireworks. Firework fans: sorry to disappoint you. Speaking of explosives, Dan recalls and odd kid that he went to school with which brings up an unexpected result. Get ready for The Legend of Fisto. Steve's Wu Tang Clan research has brought the intro to Method Man to his attention. This brings on a conversation about homoerotic threats (you'll see).  We round out our pre movie talk with a whiteboard thought about lifeguard lessons that should be applied.

 As far as what we've been watching, Dan has seen Midsommar and makes damn sure he convinces Steve to do the same. He's also been watching Holey Moley on Hulu (also ABC), Into The Dark: Culture Shock (Hulu), Steve's in the middle of a House rewatch, and they both  give their first opinions on Perpetual Grace LTD (Now on Epix).

There's a lot packed into this shorter episode of Heroes of Noise but we think you'll be satisfied. When it comes down to it, isn't 5 hours of us in a week's time too much as it is?

Enough with the pleasantries people. It's time to push "play" and dig it.

Episode 76 - Stranger Things 3, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Avatar Rewatch, and Diving Into Euphoria


Greeting Citizens!

Your friendly neighborhood Heroes of Noise are back. Albeit a little late, but back nonetheless. Obviously we're late with the show so we knew we had to bring it this week. Helping us bring it is Quinton Taylor Roberts, host of The Reel Zodiac podcast. He's a great guy with a great voice and he also happens to be a total professional. 

This week on Episode 76 we sit down with Quinton to discuss life, love, relationships, and of course what we've been watching this week. Before we get to that we read an iTunes review that's attached to a funny coincidence. We then spend some time answering listener mail and this turns into yet another music conversation where we try to come to an agreement on who has the most recognizable opening riff.

When we finally get down to business we start out with the third season of Stranger Things which Quinton and Dan have watched in it's entirety. We've all seen Spider-Man: Far From Home and spend some time going showing love to the latest release from the MCU.  Speaking of the MCU, Avengers:Endgame has still not beat Avatar. Because Dan had such harsh words about it last week he decided to give it it's first rewatch and Quinton did the same. Does Avatar hold up? Has Dan changed his mind? you'll have to listen to find out. LastlySteve has begun watching Euphoria and Dan and Quinton are all to eager to rave about HBO's latest hit. 

We want to thank Quinton for joining us this week. We also want to thank all of you for your patience as well as your awesome support you give us every week. We hope you enjoy this extra long episode of Heroes of Noise.

Let's begin.🤘🏽✊🏾

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.

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
