It was a dark and stormy night, and Kent, Joel and, Jacob are hunkered down in the Baconcave, ready to bring you horrifying true crime stories to end this Halloween season. Beware, the tales we share may be a bit too intense for children, but we’ll still try to keep things as family friendly as we can…while discussing murder. Along the way, [INSERT…
 
Two years after The Haunting of Hill House terrified Kent and Joel, Netflix has released the second story in this eerie anthology, The Haunting of Bly Manor. But will this sequel series be as scary as we supposed? We’ll keep the first part of this review spoiler-free, so even if you haven’t seen it yet, you can still listen to this BaconBit. After …
 
Attention, earthlings! You are not alone in this universe. Baconsale is here to talk to you about aliens, visitors from another planet, invaders from outer space, little green men, Greys, Reptilians, Nordics, or whatever else you want to call them. After briefly sharing their personal beliefs and stories about extra-terrestrial encounters, Kent, Jo…
 
On this episode of Baconsale, we’re making The Descent into horror once again with a new Decade Dance. This time, our Final Destination is a list of the ten best scary movies released between 2000 and 2009, brought to you by Shaun of the Dead. And as we go Behind the Mask on these freaky flicks, we see Signs that Zack has actually seen (Saw?) one o…
 
Joel’s a big fan of scary movies, and he wants his children to appreciate them, as well, so he’s created a four-phase training program to introduce his offspring to the horror genre. It’s not just for kids, though. This evolving spreadsheet of 80 frightening films could be for anyone who wants to dip their toes into the spooky swimming pool. Kent w…
 
Cryptids are animals whose existence has not yet been proven. And it’s time for Baconsale to put some of these mythical creatures into hypothetical fights where only one of them will be left standing. Our friend Nicole, a cryptid enthusiast, is here to teach us about the folklore behind each contender and help decide who would win in such epic matc…
 
If you were able to pick a soundtrack to represent various times in your life, which songs would you pick? That’s the question we’re answering on this episode of Baconsale. Kent, Joel, Zack, and Jacob are all going to select music for things like their high school experience, their dating lives, their earliest childhood memories, and even their far…
 
Jacob has taken a break from his busy schedule and his chalupas to join us in the Baconcave with the ultimate Jacob Twist: he’s stepping down as a regular host of Baconsale. This news is a little sad, yes, but it’s also kind of expected, right? It’s not all melancholy and infinite sadness, though. Jacob is going to give his skewed version of the hi…
 
The last time Mats was here, he had us watch a bunch of TV shows he enjoyed. Now it’s time for Baconsale to turn the tables on him. Kent and Joel have selected ten films for Mats to watch. These are not all best picture winners, these aren’t the highest-grossing films of all time, they may not even be our personal favorites, but we have chosen them…
 
Let’s get down to business to discuss Mulan. Disney had made another live-action remake of a 90s animated classic and decided to make this one a little more realistic. Or did they? Kent and Joel have watched the movie and are ready to share their opinions. We keep things spoiler-free for the first part of this BaconBit, but after that we’ll let you…
 
It's not who you are underneath, it's what you do that defines you. And Christopher Nolan has done some very good films. Therefore, it’s finally time for Kent to go full fanboy as we discuss his favorite director’s movies and rank them from eleven to one. Are you watching closely? Because along the way, we point out any and all Michael Caine appear…
 
Whoa! Did Baconsale just combine two trippy time travel movies into one BaconBit? Yes way, dude! First, we’re going to review the third installment in the Bill & Ted universe, Bill & Ted Face the Music, a reboot long awaited by some. But will it be a most excellent return, or will it be totally bogus? We will also be discussing Christopher Nolan’s …
 
Kent and Joel have been acquaintances for a long time (8 years & one-and-a-half months, to be precise), but how well do they really know each other? Well, their podcasting relationship is going to be put to the test during The Podlywed Game! Woo-boo! Zack has created a series of questions with help from you, the listener, that are designed to cause…
 
Believe it or not, we’re talking on air about the theme songs you hear on the TV! We had so much fun discussing the greatest music on television last time, that we’ve decided to do it again, and, much to Kent’s dismay, we can’t use any songs that any of us used on the last show. On this episode of Baconsale, we’re picking answers for such categorie…
 
Kids watch the darndest things, and the hosts of Baconsale were once children with questionable tastes in movies. Therefore, on this episode, Kent, Joel, and Zack are all bringing a lesser-known childhood favorite to the table for the others to critique. We even got Jacob to submit a film for this discussion. Our choices are kind of strange—in fact…
 
Look, we’re not perfect here at Baconsale. And despite many listener believing that we’ve watched every movie and TV series ever, it’s simply not true. So on this episode, we’re acknowledging the gaps in our pop culture knowledge and admitting to popular films and television shows that we have not seen. This isn’t easy for us, and these painful con…
 
We couldn’t fit all of these morning beverages into our breakfast food tiering show, so we decided to take another ridiculous dive into liquid refreshment and rank popular drink choices such as orange juice, milk, coffee, energy drinks, hot chocolate, tomato juice, and more on this BaconBit. As we do so, we learn that grapefruit juice can kill you,…
 
Breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day. But let’s face it, some breakfast meals are more important than others. So, on this episode of Baconsale, we’re ranking popular morning dishes, from bacon and the incredible, edible egg to fruit and fancy yogurt. We’ll also talk about the history of these dishes, which may include some ridiculous …
 
We’re modern-day warriors with a mean, mean stride and today's episode is a mean, mean ride. Our guest and working man, Ryan, is joining us to gush about his favorite band, Rush. Zack is already a big fan of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart, but Kent and Joel are relatively new to their music—however, they prepared for this show by listening…
 
Sidekicks. You give them an inch, they swim all over you. And on this episode of Baconsale, we’re going to finish what we started and allow the secondary protagonists & antagonists of popular Disney movies duke it out in a no-holds-barred battle to the death. We don’t always agree, and it isn’t pretty when some beloved animated characters meet a te…
 
Heroes & villains have all the fun, so Baconsale felt that it was time for Disney sidekicks & henchmen to get the spotlight. We’ve created a tournament-style bracket with animated characters you love (Kronk, Sebastian, Tinkerbell) and some that you’ll barely remember (Wiggins, Morph, Helga Sinclair) and we’re pitting them against each other in a ba…
 
You say a podcast review of this play is a little too late. You’ve sighed as you’ve seen us give C’s to fun scenes and movies that you’ve liked. Please don’t fuss. Remember the play is expensive to see on the stage. Now it’s on Disney Plus. And thus Baconsale must discuss Hamilton. No take backs, from all three—our reviews are out for all to see. N…
 
Where’s the beef? Well, it’s in Kent’s, Joel’s, and Jacob’s bellies, because Baconsale has completed another menu quest! Despite a global pandemic, we managed to eat every single item at Wendy’s and we’re ready to talk about the best & worst offerings the world's third-largest hamburger fast-food chain has to offer. We’ll also discuss Dave Thomas, …
 
Atteeeeeention! Now, I want you to remember that no podcast ever won by doing only one episode about war movies. They won by doing two episodes about war movies. On this episode of Baconsale, Kent and Joel are building more monuments for some of their favorite war films—this time focusing on World War I and World War II. From the assassination of A…
 
Sparkly vampires, shirtless werewolves, vacant stares, clumsy dialogue. We know what this is...and we’re going to say it…out loud. Twilight. But don’t expect the full force of our criticism to be unleashed, because on this episode of Baconsale our task is to defend Stephenie Meyer’s popular books and their film adaptations. It’s not going to be eas…
 
We’re Baconsale and we’re criminal masterminds. Well…maybe we are. We’re not quite certain, actually. But we are certain that Disney just released a film adaptation of Artemis Fowl, and we’re going to review it. None of us have read the book series, so we watched this movie without any expectations. We have a lot to say about it now. And even if yo…
 
Surfin’ may be the only life, the only way for some, but for the three landlocked members of Baconsale, The Beach Boys was their closest connection to catchin’ waves, cool cars, and sunny beaches. So on this episode, we’re pickin' up good vibrations by discussing the best and worst songs this classic American rock band has given us during their fiv…
 
Come on down! You’re the next listener on the Baconsale podcast!

We’re picking answers for 15 different categories, such as Best Host, Most Recognizable Theme Song, Show You Think You’d Do Well On, and Needs a Come…
 
Water. Earth. Fire. Air. Long ago, the four members of Baconsale lived in ignorance of a popular Nickelodeon TV series. Then, everything changed when Joel’s coworkers suggested he watch it. Only Joel watched Avatar: The Last Airbender at first, then he recommended it to Kent and it began to spread. But when the world needed this show the most, it v…
 
Gooooooooood morning, listener! There are many war movies out there. So many. Too many to choose from, in fact, so we’ve strategically narrowed down the field a bit. On this episode of Baconsale, Kent and Joel are each selecting four war films that don’t deal with the World Wars to put on their personal monument, following which we’ll decide which …
 
Kent hoped. Kent dreamed. Kent retweeted. And finally, this DC fanboy’s dream has come true, because Zack Snyder’s Justice League is coming to the small screen! HBO Max is releasing the Snyder Cut next year, 2021, and Kent could not be happier. Well, he would have been a little happier if Henry Cavill had announced Man of Steel 2, but he’s still pr…
 
Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, select, start. There. Now you have 30 lives to listen to this episode of Baconsale! Today we’re taking things back to our childhood, when we would spend hours playing video games on the original Nintendo Entertainment System on our big 22-inch screen TVs. We’ve picked a dozen categories such as Do…
 
We’re not quite sure how Kent talked us into doing this, but for this BaconBit we’re reviewing the 2020 remake of a 1997 PlayStation game that was the seventh installment in the series. Kent was very passionate about Final Fantasy 7 back then, and he seems to share the same passion now—even though the new remake changes some things that fans of the…
 
Have you ever enjoyed a movie that you never wanted to watch again? Kent, Joel, and Zack have! Whether it be because they were too long, too dark, too experimental, or too perfect, we’re talking about films that we’re glad we saw, but don’t have a desire to revisit. We’ll do our best to keep things light and fluffy, despite the grim subject matter …
 
Imagine Kent and Joel are on a school field, with a bunch of bad animated feature films standing in front of them. They must choose their team, one by one, and then present their final list to Zack, who has to decide which group of movies he’ll be watching for the rest of his life. That’s the premise of this episode. Watch as we try to defend medio…
 
Now that Chris Hemsworth is taking a break from being Thor (and taking a break from arm day, according to Zack), Baconsale is here to give our review of his latest movie, Extraction. But is this straight-to-Netflix action flick as good as the ones they release in theaters? We’ll let you know. And don’t worry about the overly complicated plot, we’re…
 
Are you ready for a life-changing experience that will change your life forever? Four years ago, Baconsale presented a list of people, places, and things that we felt were overrated. Everyone in the world agreed it was the best show we’d ever done…UNTIL NOW! Buckle your brain belts, because once again, we’re talking about overhyped stuff. Our range…

You think playing Risk makes people angry? Just wait until Kent, Joel, or …
 
The Internet Movie Database (IMDb) is a wonderful resource for any movie-lover, but some of the user-submitted content on that site is a little strange. Therefore, on this episode of Baconsale, we’re introducing a new game (that’s going to sweep the nation!) where Kent, Joel, and Zack try to identify movies based solely on descriptions from the IMD…
 
Just because something is awful doesn’t mean we hate it. Today Baconsale is scraping the bottom of the barrel to search for movies we enjoy among the lowest-rated flicks on Rotten Tomatoes. Kent has to defend one of his all-time favorite films, Joel is apparently obsessed with Dana Carvey, and our good friend Zack, who is stepping in for Jacob toda…
 
Hey, all you cool cats and kittens! Hollywood may have stopped releasing feature films in theaters, but Netflix is bigger than ever with their latest seven-episode documentary, Tiger King.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a trio of men in possession of a good idea, must be in want of a podcast episode. Therefore, Kent, Joel, and Jacob are ready to talk, without pride or prejudice, about film adaptations of books. Joining us on this episode is Drew, an avid reader and patron of Baconsale. We’re discussing which pieces of l…
