Seeing all the Oscar nominated moves is never easy so we decided to bring in some outside help who has seen them for our Oscar Preview. That help came in the form of Andrew Johnson from www.inreeldeep.com. Unfortunately after recording the episode we realized we had some technical difficulties where Sasso and Dubya’s audio disappeared so this became the ECB equivalent of Garfield Minus Garfield. Fortunately Christian and Andrew handled the bulk of the conversation so while the end result may be a bit awkward, most of the actual content remains.
It’s 2015 and ECB is embracing new technologies such as the internet…and Skype. Yep, we did another Skype-cast and this one doesn’t sound like it was recording from inside a riding mower. As part of ECB’s new “lean and mean” branding I’ll wrap up this episode description and get on with the timestamps.
00:00 – 17:08 #Trending: Super Bowl/Deflategate
17:09 – 24:10 #Trending: The Return of The X-Files?
24:11 – TV: Togetherness/Justified/Always Sunny/Broad City
Like an oasis in the desert that is the ECB podcast feed the Core Four returns to The Seana for one last time in 2014. Join us for our traditional end of the year wrap-up where we discuss things we have already talked about in the past as well as our traditional throwing around of segment ideas that we will likely never get to. All that and the much-anticipated return of Pucks with Powers this week, on ECB.

00:00 – 14:59 Intro/Holiday Wrap-up/Pucks with Powers
The Core Four is not immune to World Cup Fever and neither are our guests so we felt it was a great time to bring back our friend Philyodaddy to preview the world’s most popular sporting event. In addition to a long discussion about the beautiful game we did some more Likes/Dislikes and previewed the two newest beernovations, Coors Light Summer Brew and Miller Fortune.
00:00 – 03:40 Intro

(N.B. Episode 53 was mislabeled as Episode 54, this is the real Episode 54 continuing the long tradition of illogical ECB episode numbering)
(N.B. 2: we did not record a reaction to the Game of Thrones board game, hopefully we will have one for you at a later date)
