1:04:04 – At last we are back with the conclusion of our BIG podcast meetup which recently took place on the streets of Chicago. Smidge is joined by Manny The Mailman (of Special Delivery) and Miles Tidal (of Static Radio) as they take refuge from some harsh Spring Windy City weather… but may just find themselves in an establishment which is (or at least once was) located in one of the most dangerous parts of Chi-Town! Yes…the good times and exciting conversation continues with topics which range from stories of late night celebrity run-ins, to certain podcast-related adventures, to just what the heck this episode title actually means! Laced with plenty of nostalgia & pop culture talk… this show is one not to be missed! So why don’t you just dive right in and enjoy Part #2 of this meeting of the (podcast) minds! Cheers!

1:08:18 – Has 2017 seemed just a little quiet so far for the podcast? Fear not… you may just need earplugs for this one! We crank those guitar amps up (yeah, yeah…definitely past “11”) & bring the show back in full swing as we dedicate this episode to the band behind the podcast! Yes, for this one we pay tribute to the legacy of The Gunk U.K.. Hear from friends, podcast peers, ex-roadies, punk rock mail carriers, pub owners, disgruntled recording engineers, and (of course) the band themselves as we take you on a wild journey into the world of The Gunk U.K.! The full story is disclosed about the band who dared to shun the establishment and take what was rightfully theirs: a good pint of ale at the pub for their sweaty performance! There is also the hint that for the proper listening expeience, you should play this episode at 45 RPM (& at that max volume)! And to top everything off…we take you on a seasonal adventure, give you a stellar concert review, and throw in all the great music to boot! What more could you possibly want from a podcast? Cheers!

A special note should be made that you may hear a companion episode to this one on Static Radio right here. Also, please share the love and listen to some of our favorite podcasts at: Onsug, Static Radio, & Insignificast!

 – The crypt has opened once again as the scarefest for the podcast returns for a big 2016 outing!  This time Smidge decided to dedicate the show entirely to one of his favorite network of podcasters. That’s right… it’s a Halloween to Onsug!

So for this ghouls night out we have invited as many of the great Onsug hosts to participate as possible. That being said, we received “seven” amazing contributions!

So, as is Halloween tradition for Gunkcast, we bring you all the tricks (or shall we say treats): creepy tales from our stalwart contributors, hair-raising comedy, more conspiracy freak outs, & a review to die for! Oh… and of course a rocking soundtrack to boot (featuring musical contributions from the likes of Letter Seventeen, Jimbo, CurmudgeonThe Gunk U.K.The Warp Zone, & Albert Gyorfi)!

33:35 – We are finally back from winter hibernation with a normal show. Wait… is there ever such a thing as a normal show for Gunkcast? You’ll just have to tune in to figure that out for yourselves! We won’t say too much here, but this one could actually be the biggest game changer for the podcast to date (as somebody is MIA & somebody steps in to take the show back)!

Some key highlights for this one: Shout-outs to Doc from Insignificast & Jimbo from Onsug. Contributing to a show for Jimbo. A St. Patrick’s Day flashback adventure. Our 2016 Grateful Dead & general 60’s conspiracy rant (featuring a special guest)! R.I.P. David Bowie. Winter/Spring movie & TV review roundup. Oh… and a hint to stick around later for some possible Easter Eggs!

Also featured are some great musical contributions from Jimbo, A.O.D., & our own house band Curmudgeon! We hope you enjoy our BIG return to form for 2016… cheers!

1:08:55 – “The Farce is strong in the Gunkcast family. Byron has it. Smidge has it. Hell, just about all of the Space Trek cast have it! You have that power too…!” Oh sorry, wrong show (you ask)? But of course this is the right show! And with those immortal words our special guest intro announcer (courtesy of Bad Reboot Productions) kicks off our biggest episode to date! But let’s leave the rest of that bit for your actual listening pleasure & carry on with what we planned here. So… A long time ago at a high school not too far away, Byron & a couple of his friends dreamt up an insane comedy cable access show called Those Guys. This spawned a skit called Space Trek, which has been revived for an exclusive audio mini-series of episodes here on Gunkcast. So please join Byron & his full ensemble cast of talent now for the BIG wrap up. That’s right… the grand finale which has been so hyped & promised for so very long that many thought it simply was never going to happen. Yes, this finale has gotten so BIG that we decided we needed to bring it all to a close in the BIGGEST way we know how… obviously by making it three shows in one! (Wait…what)?

But we’re not going to spoil this for you. You’ll just have to dive right in with us as the fuse(box) is lit to an explosive intro where we flashback through The Farce to the untold tale of how this whole adventure began! Yes, find out just how one final load of laundry set the chain of events in motion which led to our entire epic six part saga! Then join Byron & his co-host Dave Ryan in the studio as they talk all things Trek & set up the final part of our journey which reaches it’s action packed conclusion here. And just when you think this can’t get any better, we also hint that there may be an after-show party which features a few more surprises (as well as another kicking tune from one of our main house bands.. Curmudgeon)!

As we close out our Captain’s Log, we would like to humbly thank everyone who contributed to our shenanigans over the last several years of making this audio journey for Gunkcast (yes, you are all given ceremonious credit in this one)! The little skit we started as part of our cable access show back in high school has now reached the grand conclusion it deserves & we are ready for a final beam up! Cheers….!

Here it is folks… the last of our “revisited” series of episodes before our BIG grand finale for Space Trek! For this one we feature an all new very ‘special (delivery)’ style intro which kicks off one of the wildest rollicking adventures ever to be found on Gunkcast! Yes this one brings the whole Space Trek series to a fever pitch packed with more action, more thrills, more insane comedy, and (oh yes)…definitely more explosions! Simply put, this one has it all! Also being remixed & remastered for your audio pleasure truly takes the whole thing to “11″ (hey that’s one louder… isn’t it?)! Again, thanks for tuning in for our revisited series of Space Trek! We hope you enjoyed reliving all the lunacy with us! —–Byron

So last time we left our fans waiting for answers in the aftermath of yet another huge episode cliffhanger ending. What was to become of Captain Jerk, Stones M’Boy, Sock, Checkout, Snotty, & the rest of the crew of the Starship Arrow when it was revealed that imminent disaster was about to strike as they prepared to beam up from the Island of Impossible Moss (after the big showdown with the villainous Double-J Raygun)? Well finally we are back with the long awaited answer…or shall we say “answers!” Yes, this time we are giving you (our dedicated listeners) the choice to make as to what the outcome of this most perilous situation could be! So what are you waiting for? Join us now for the 5th installment of a most epic sci-fi comedy adventure mini-series (brought to you by the eccentric minds behind the original Those Guys)! Remember, the success of the mission this time relies on your decision!

And just when you think this episode can’t get any better, you may want to also tune in for a classic track from one of our main Gunkcast house bands… Curmudgeon. Yes, this one truly has it all folks!

Some years ago Byron was on a camping trip with his family & had a mishap while collecting firewood one night. He did not realize until too late that one of the logs he had picked up was covered with poison ivy vines! But perhaps what was most startling was that the resulting outbreak on Byron’s left arm seemed to VERY closely resemble a certain classic sci-fi series logo! Yes…he fancied it to be the “trek stigmata!” This is the true & bizarre tale of the event that influenced this very episode title & which we are revealing now for this special revisited edition (at least for the “show notes” since Byron didn’t remember to tell it during the actual recording)!

So this next Space Trek ‘revisited’ episode for Gunkcast boasts another stellar new intro by an eminent podcast voice of the Onsug community (as well as possibly debuting another “hideous” new super villain)! Then after the main show, be sure to stick around for a special bonus behind the scenes segment which we are dubbing “Talking Trek” (featuring a couple old friends who may just happen to be Space Trek cast members & podcast legends themselves)! Note that we are nearing the end of the countdown to our BIG Trek finale… so dive right in now & enjoy reliving all the lunacy with us! Thanks again for listening! —–Byron

At the end of Space Trek III we left you with a huge cliffhanger which has since caused much wild fan speculation & rumors buzzing around the web. The source of all this could be summed up with one simple question: “Who shot the Doc?” Well actually you should know who shot the Doc if you listened! But the bigger question is what do our heroes do now as the villainous Double-J Raygun (who is attempting to reboot the entire franchise) threatens to put an imminent end to them all on the Island of Impossible Moss? How can they overcome the odds weighing against them here & still recover the (unattended) Starship Arrow which has floated off into space? And just what does something possibly located on a certain starship captain’s gluteus maximus have anything to do with all this? Find out all these answers & much more in this explosive continuation of the series! Fasten your seatbelts… this one’s a real rollercoaster ride!

To note, while you tune in for this next chapter of our crazy sci-fi comedy adventure (from the eccentric minds behind the original Those Guys), also listen for a pretty kickin’ tune from The Gunk U.K. which soundtracks this one…cheers!

The next in our “revisited” series of Space Trek episodes is here (leading up to the forthcoming Part #6)! As we have stated previously, we really strived to make these shows extra special by loading them with all sorts of bonus goodies! So in this 3rd part, we have another stellar new intro (can the rumors be true that it features the BIG MAN himself?)! Also there are hints of a new hidden ending which may further reveal Byron & his Those Guys crew’s original high school shenanigans! Of course remixing & remastering this whole thing is just the icing on the cake. Again, we hope you enjoy reliving all the lunacy with us! -—–Byron

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far… (oops… sorry, wrong show). A long time ago at a high school not too far away, Byron & a couple of his friends dreamt up an insane comedy cable access show called Those Guys. This spawned a skit called Space Trek, which has now been revived for an exclusive audio mini-series of episodes here on Gunkcast. Join Byron & a full ensemble cast of talent for the biggest, most action packed (& quite possibly the most lunatic) installment of our Space Trek series yet!

Follow Dr. Leroy Stones M’Boy, Sock, Checkout, Snotty, & the rest of the crew of the Starship Arrow as they continue on their adventure which has guided them through time & space to rescue the missing Captain Jerk. While The Doc (piloting his TARGIT) attempts to hold off the hideous fleet of warships known as the Minions Of J (dispatched by the sinister Double-J Raygun himself), M’Boy & his crew now find themselves stranded on the Island of Impossible Moss as a result of a tiny slight detail they overlooked when they beamed down. But they soon discover they may not be alone on this strange & mysterious island… and the real rollercoaster ride starts here! Trust us, this 3rd part of the series has it all! And if you are wondering just how the U.K. vs. the U.S. shoe size fits into all of this, you’ll just have to tune in & hear it for yourselves…cheers!
