Head Of The Cast

Follow Bill and a rotating cast of characters as they help each other make sense of pop culture, film, television, technology, video games, and the weird and sometimes wonderful goings-on in Bill's rather chaotic head.

The Podcasts

Bill is ill, yo! Which isn't as awesome as it sounds. What is awesome is that the show is almost entirely listener voicemail driven. After Bill gets a bit serious about television exploiting today's youth, Jim From Canada calls in to talk superhero movies. Gutter Monk wonders what Bill thinks about Mike Tyson. All that in this jam packed Head of the Cast!

Head of The Cast Episode 22: 3 Year Itch

A fateful call from the ominous Gutter Monk to Lothgar sends the dastardly demon on a shame quest to revive the Head of the Cast. After using gross out porn to bully Bill back in front of the mic, the HEADquarters gets juiced up and the show takes off.

Bill gives a brief rundown of where he has been for the previous 3 years and discusses why he's decided to return to the internet airwaves.

Gutter Monk calls in with a question about Nintendo games and piracy. What's Nintendo's deal, anyway?

Bill shares David Harbour's SAG Award acceptance speech. 

Bill wraps up the show and announces that future shows will be released on a bi-weekly schedule.

Bill explains the two week absence of the show before welcoming Effie back into the 2nd Chair. Effie accuses Bill of hating any music made afer 1994 when Bill talks about the 2014 Grammys. Bill plays a little Lorde (oh Lord!) performance and a few minutes of a Cyrus cover song by one of America's most beloved hedgehogs. Gutter Monk wants to know if the actions of the artist taints the art itself. A new caller makes Bill open up about his dislike of anime and JRPGs. Bill gets a semi-disturbing voicemail from a caller he never expected to hear from on the show. Gutter Monk shows us where the media went wrong when the real "news" is halted for some unmentionable un-"news". Bill closes out the show with an audio tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman.

In the first proper podcast of 2014, Bill welcomes Effie to the 2nd Chair before marveling at the chilly wizardry that is the weather in the Chicagoland area. Bill discusses how he describes podcasting to people. Gutter Monk chimes in with his love for James Brown and his displeasure with texters. Gutter Monk gave Bill the idea to have a unemployed James Brown star in a very musical edition of Imagination Theatre. Since the Packers aren't going to the Super Bowl, Wisconsin is using all of that extra game time snacking cheese to treat their roadways. A girl in India is burned with boiling water after unfriending a creepy guy which begs the question: has social networking officially taken the lead over REAL life?
