The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour Spectacular, Episode 6: Re-Opening the X-Files

The truth is still out there, and The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour Spectacular is all over the return of The X-Files in pursuit of it. Glenn & Scott welcome special guest Andy Halleen to the podcast to talk about some of their favorite episodes & moments over the course of The X-Files‘ long run, the way that the first two episodes of the new miniseries reintroduce both the larger mythology and case-of-the-week styles of the series, Gillian Anderson having to hold out for equal pay, the relationship between real-world conspiracy theories and TV conspiracy theories, and AD Skinner’s stalled career.

The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour Spectacular, Episode 5: Despair on the Eve of Iowa

With the long hard slog of the US presidential campaign slogging along, The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour Spectacular is back with a despairing and at times contemptuous look at all of the people who for some reason are still running for President on the eve of the Iowa caucus. Then, considering the ascendancy of Donald Trump, Glenn & Scott contemplate other WWE Hall of Famers who might make better Presidents of the United States. Finally, there’s a brief look at the 2016 US Senate race in Connecticut and the idea of Linda McMahon joining the fray once again.

The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour Spectacular, Episode 4: Didn’t We Already Talk About Star Wars?

In a blockbuster new episode of The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour Spectacular, Glenn & Scott are joined by special guest and friend of the show Alanna Kelly to dive just a little deeper into Star Wars: The Force Awakens than the last episode did. The three discuss their histories of Star Wars fandom and expectations going into Episode VII before getting into the marketing of this new movie as a return to the old and beloved tropes of Star Wars, as well as the development of the new characters, including their motivations and costuming (are you on #TeamCape?). Glenn accidentally winds up engaging in a little more prequel apologia than expected, Scott shares a story about an Empire Strikes Back bootleg video tape, and hosts & guest alike desperately try to remember Alfred Molina’s name.

After the break, Glenn, Scott, and Alanna examine the aesthetic construction of The Force Awakens, the Star Wars universe’s newfound diversity, and how this film fits in JJ Abrams’ career. The show closes with a new segment on various other media the participants have been consuming lately, including Another Round and extensive discussions about the recent Sherlock special and season two of the Serial podcast.
