Syndication

On an all-new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan joined forces with the denizens of The Jungle Book to maintain the Disney domination on the box office, including another milestone for the Marvel team. This week's competition involve some upset fowl with a porcine grudge and a slingshot, another comedic look at collegiate life, and a 1970s detective procedural. Do they have a chance at stopping the march of Mouse House?

 

Add in dirty old men and witches on disk, a biopic and a CG fantasy adventure on streaming, and the complete adventures of a fan-favorite warrior princess on TV, and you have a new edition of The Weekly Podioplex, only on The Chronic Rift Network.

Podcast Promos

 

Cyborgs: A Bionic Podcast 

The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman were two of the most influential television programs of the 70's.  During the height of their popularity, Steve Austin (Lee Majors) and Jaime Sommers (Lindsay Wagner) would battle Fembots, Bigfoot, Venus Death Probes, deadly duplicates, foreign spies, and bitter cold to protect the United States' interests through the O.S.I. Every other Sunday, hosts John S. Drew and Paul K. Bisson talk about one episode from either series in depth with another fan of the series.  The podcast looks at the episodes, the pilot movies, and the reunion movies covering them from synopsis to review to a look at the mythology of both series.
