Welcome to the Anniversary Show! This week on Myopia: Defend your Childhood, we learned that a silly podcast can last for two years. We watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, maybe we should have stopped after one.
The Cigar Nerds Podcast Episode 49: Face Huggers. Some times you just need a hug, and that’s ok. Unless its from an Alien Face Hugger. This week we return to LV-426 to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Sci-Fi classic Aliens.

Flopcast episode 220! This week we’ve secretly replaced our regular coffee with Hi-C Ecto Cooler, because it’s time to check out the new Ghostbusters movie! Kevin recalls his favorite cover version of the Ghostbusters theme, by that legendary band, the Happy Hamsters. Meanwhile, thanks to our friends at the Kyle and Luke Talk About Toons podcast, Kornflake has become an actual Ghostbuster, and is already busting ghost lobsters. We also get hit by mysterious articles of clothing during Strip Zeppelin, a burlesque show featuring Niki Luparelli and the Gold Diggers, the Lipstick Criminals, and an elf. And we recommend new music from Richie Ramone (the third Ramones drummer, between Marky and, uh, Marky) and Moon Hooch (because we just can’t get enough crazy saxophones). Plus: If you’d like to learn how to talk to a rabid weasel in an elevator, we just might have you covered.
Sontar Ha! Mike, Mike, Jen, Mary and special guest Michael Falkner transmat down from the station to a far-in-the-future Earth and an all-too-familiar villain, while trying to keep disagreeable noises to a minimum.

It’s now three years into the USS Enterprise’s five-year mission, and the crew is beginning to feel a little…strained. They have encountered numerous wonders in their journey through the stars, experienced thrilling adventures, and witnessed the awe-inspiring beauty of deep space. However, they’ve also learned that space can be as cold and lonely as it is fascinating, and when you are venturing this far from home into the uncharted vastness of the universe, it is all too easy to get lost — both literally and figuratively.
The beginning of “Star Trek: Beyond” finds Captain James T. Kirk feeling both lost and lonely. He is now a year older than his father lived to be, and he is questioning his own purpose in Starfleet. His father joined Starfleet because he believed in the mission; Kirk just joined on a dare. He wonders what he is really accomplishing, and if his work really means anything. It takes a dangerous mission that strands the Enterprise crew on a hostile world — and the resurrection of some ghosts from Starfleet’s past — to remind Captain Kirk why it’s important to keep boldly going where no one has gone before.

This week Josh welcomes J. Patrick (The Adam and Jp Show) back and tests his knowledge of collecting and toys. Was there ever a CSI Crime Scene Kit marketed to kids?

Max Allan Collins
Hard Case Crime
This is one series we came in late on, not having been aware of Max Collins’ hitman Quarry until Hard Case Crime convinced him to bring the character out of mothballs for one more tale; “The Last Quarry” in 2015. We were hooked instantly and obviously not alone in our appreciation as the publisher continued releasing new Quarry tales. By this time Collins had long since established himself as one of the premier mystery writers in the country. This was due in large part to his historical Nathan Heller crime novels and his posthumous collaborations with late Mickey Spillane in which Collins completed many unfinished Mike Hammer mysteries.
