BROK HOLLIDAY’S REVIEW

This was another episode I wasn’t too sure of at first because it was so incredibly dark. Now, I think its amazing and it shows how the original team venture including Jonas were fucking terrible people.

Episode #263 – Bad Times At The El Royale

This week on the podcast the gang has some Bad Times at the El Royale, by which we mean they had a good time because this movie was pretty great. Lot of fun visual imagery and a lot of interesting twists and turns, with a fantastic acting turn from Jeff Bridges. Justin Thiele joins us to talk about the stylish romp from Drew Goddard.

3.06: Dr. Quymn, Medicine Woman

This week on the show Bryan Dressel, Graham “Pineapple” Mason, and Nicholas “Starfruit” Friedemann enter the lull of season three, which continues next week as well. There’s some funny stuff to be had in this evergreen episode, but coming off of some really strong episodes it’s a bit of a letdown. Ayyy! Enjoy!

BROK HOLLIDAY’S REVIEW

When I first saw this episode I hated it. I really felt like it was a low point for season 3. After watching it again and being a much more mature person I have grown to like the episode. Many have childhood dramas that can handicap us as adults and keep us from happiness. That’s what this episode is about. Maybe it’s not a blueprint to overcoming those dramas but it’s definitely there to help us identify them.

Episode #262 – The Predator (2018)

This week on the podcast we have a bit of a Predator problem. Namely, that the new Predator movie is called THE PREDATOR. You’d think after enough of these movies they would want to reduce the confusion, not add to it. Anyway, this movie is a bit of a mess so we brought in friend of the show Erik Steffens to help us figure out what worked and what didn’t.

BROK HOLLIDAY’S REVIEW

This episode is one of the funniest but also super dark at the same time. This episode makes me wonder if the creators of Rick and Mitty got any inspiration from the character of Dr.Venture.

Introducing Demon Dayz: An Actual Play Podcast

A Tabletop RPG podcast from ATH Network with a focus on fiends.

We’re excited to announce Demon Dayz, an Actual Play podcast whose goal is to focus on the oft-overlooked devilish and demonic characters found in tabletop games such as Dungeons & Dragons, Shadowrun, and any other game system that can support a group of “horned bastards” creating mischief wherever they go.

If you’re familiar with and enjoy shows like Critical Role, The Adventure Zone, Friends at the Table, High Rollers, and Sirens of the Realm from Maze Arcana, you’ll be right at home here. The first campaign will use Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition and future campaigns will switch systems (and possibly Dungeon Masters) to shake up the storytelling and offer a different authorial voice. Some campaigns will be lengthy epics spanning years, while others might be as short as a one-shot. Some stories might feature the tried-and-true, while others could skew heavily experimental. Demon Dayz will be a storytelling playground, and we couldn’t be more excited to share this journey with you all.

The first few episodes of our new show will appear in the main After the Hype feed to introduce you to the characters and setting and give you a feel for what to expect. After that the show will break out into its own podcast feed. Along with each episode we’ll have an “enhanced” version on our YouTube channel with character stats, story and fan art, and anything fun we can think of to add to the experience.

We’ll have more specific information in the coming weeks such as cast and character reveals, campaign synopsis, and more. You can find all that information over on the show’s twitter page, as well as any other teasers that come up. In the meantime, we’ll leave you with this thematic teaser trailer to get HYPE.


3.04: Home Is Where the Hate Is

The new year has arrived, and with it come more episodes of your favorite podcast of all time. Well, it’s Bryan’s favorite podcast of all time. Well…..ALL his podcasts are his favorite. Join him, Graham “Pineapple” Mason, and Nick “Raspberry” Friedemann this week as they take on the next episode in the third season: Home is Where The Hate Is.

BROK HOLLIDAY’S REVIEW

This is a very solid episode, more plot driven then most which slows it down a bit. I personally love the writing of episodes like this but I can understand if a casual viewer isn’t into it.

Ignore your family and hang out with us!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us over at the ATH Network of podcasts! We know you’re probably opening gifts or feasting with family but forget all of that and come join us for two Christmas-themed podcasts as well as an article from our friend and main contributor Matt Dykes.


AFTER THE HYPE EP. 261 – FEEL GOOD CHRISTMAS MOVIES BATTLE

Twas the day that was Christmas and all through your earbuds came the sounds of epic battle. That’s right, you wonderful holiday people! We watched a bunch of “feel good” Christmas movies and argued pleasantly for over an hour about which one was best.

Go to the episode post here, or just listen below

Beat that, loved ones!


VENTURE BROS: A VERY VENTURE CHRISTMAS

Nothing says holiday celebration like hanging out with friends talking about the greatest animated show of all time and its…uh…well…not very good holiday special. At least there’s fun banter between Bryan Dressel, Nick “Sugar Cookie” Friedemann, and Graham “Bah-Humbug” Mason.

You can listen to the episode below or go to the episode post with all them fancy shownotes and pictures

Suck it, family time!


ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS MOVIES – BY MATT DYKES

And then we’ve got a new article from our friend and contributor Matt Dykes about alternative Christmas movies to watch when you’ve burned through all the best “feel good” Christmas movies like The Mistle-Tones, My Santa, 12 Dates of Christmas, A Cinderella Christmas, or Married By Christmas.

It’s quite the fun read and I’d advise you to check it out here.


See? Aren’t you glad you spent your holiday with us instead? We laughed, we cried, we battled, and we discussed a disappointing Christmas Special to the greatest animated show of all time. It was truly an epic day that changed all of our lives. Now you’re ready to go out there and face 2019 like a champ!
