We explain why the universe is slowly becoming a disordered slob and we find out what Quentin thinks of his new life as just another cog in the corporate death machine of tool sales. Find out why you can’t fight entropy and how to know if you’re Pam from The Office.
We find out if Quentin is going to be America’s Next Top Tool Salesman when he reveals whether or not he got the job he applied for. Then we discuss relationship shipping in various fiction and real life (which we find out might be the same thing during our discussion of solipsism).
It’s the building blocks of life vs. the best part of mouths. Learn facts about teeth and cells, as well as erroneous, sarcastic, and generally confusing “facts” about those things as well (as per usual).
In this edition of The Sarcast, we learn about the ocean from Quentin, who is an ocean expert after having heard of Jaws and having watched Free Willy more than once. Find out some ocean facts like how high in sodium it is. Then, I talk about how I’m now living up to my full recluse potential. Plus, our thoughts on the pudding scene in this week’s Walking Dead episode. Plus plus, our thoughts on the new characters on Girls in this week’s episode of that show.
We discuss disabilities, including all the different varietals of disabilities. Find out what is offensive when talking about people with disabilities and whether or not disabilities are all just socially constructed. Also, things to do in parks like swinging on swings, spinning in circles, and looking at porn while you eat Oreos.
The one hundred and third episode where this time we tackle the topics of Super Bowl and regrets. Find out why Quentin was in the hospital for one Super Bowl and find out what episode of this show that I (Chris) regret recording.
We talk about how we found out we were in The A.V. Club and how we’re enjoying our new found fame and fortune. It’s possible that this conversation goes on for too long. Then there are topics involving what things from life we regret and what coffee is coffee coffee coffee, blah blah blah, etc. you get the picture.
“Touted as “the only show hosted by a 24-year-old virgin and a real-life hermit,” The Sarcast is nothing if not exactly what it claims to be. Essentially the audible diary of Portlanders/longtime buddies Chris Gonzalez (the hermit) and Quentin Trujillo (the virgin), it’s a weekly look at anything and everything filtered through the pair’s soft-spoken self-deprecation and nerdy sensibilities. Gonzalez and Trujillo come into each episode with their own topics (ranging from cannibalism to Ben Affleck) and the conversation loosely flows from there. Much in the same vein as bare-bones bromantic podcasts like Uhh Yeah Dude, The Sarcast relies entirely on the listeners’ relationship with its two hosts—both awkwardly likable and often preoccupied with finding jobs and “fly honeys,” all while still living with their parents.
Although occasionally joined by guests like often edited-out friend David and real-life girl Betty, Gonzalez and Trujillo reside in their own world where no secret is too personal to share with each other and the small but devoted audience. In fact, things recently took a quasi-melodramatic turn as Trujillo—a bit of a second fiddle to the slightly more suave Gonzalez—began dating a female fan that Gonzalez also liked. Although only time will tell whether bromance will emerge triumphant over romance, it’s assured that every detail will be over-shared in future episodes. [TK]“
In this episode, we do very episode-like things to make this one of the most episodic episodes to ever be episoded. Hear us explain why memory is a fickle whore, why polyamory isn’t the same as swinging, and why polygamy should be legal. Also, much more in this inexplicably long episode.
