It’s hosted by Sandler fans; Robert Bacon, Marie Maloney, and Caleb George who are disappointed and disillusioned with his current string of terrible films. Each week they watch an Adam Sandler or Adam Sandler adjacent movie together to discuss and rank the movies.
- Is My Crazy Showing- We are a mental health comedy show. We use humor as a coping skill while tackling a variety of subjects. Ya gotta laugh!
- The Broadcast Basement- Beer. Fatherhood. Fun. We are “30 Minutes Of Good” from Chicago’s South Side and the flagship program of a network that also has the highly downloaded White Sox Podcast “Sox In The Basement”, local show “The EP Podcast” and the very entertaining “Me and The Priest” show.
- The Happy Corner- Two comedians interviewing local artists with various silly segments. ie: Broke Hacks, where were your friends, what’d you do for that D or P
- Please Make This- Please Make This is a podcast where Hobert Thompson, Spencer Blair, Laura Petro, and a guest writer, come up with, and then write scenes from, a movie that Hollywood needs to make. Then, actors come in and do a table read of the scenes to bring the movies to life!
- Freak of the Week- A completely made up call in show about completely made up creatures and phenomena.
- CinemaSlayers- We review and discuss different movie and tv related topics.
- Oz 9- To offload a bunch of not-spaceworthy ships, Gated Galaxies has loaded up pods of sleeping rich people, crews of ex-cons who couldn’t fly a balsa-wood-and-rubber-band airplane, and shot them into space. The Oz 9 is one of these ships, and its hopeless, hapless, helpless crew careens from one disaster to the next near-miss, to more bad judgement.
Memoriam Development is a collective of creators in the Chicago suburbs gathered together in order to make great original content for stage, screen, and pod. Founded in 2016, Memoriam hit the ground running with its first project, Surial, a podcast parody of the hit podcast Serial. It was shortly followed thereafter by its first theatrical production, Oh My Gods, a play that questioned what the gods would be like if they were just like us.
