The Hard Drive Podcast
Hard Drive
Video game comedy website Hard Drive deserves a podcast. Two of its co-creators, Jeremy Kaplowitz and Mark Roebuck, are fulfilling that need.
The Passion of the Crust
Mark and Jeremy write and perform an original episode of 1989's The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! that parodies the 2004 Mel Gibson film The Passion of the Christ - a movie that neither of them ever cares to actually see. They write the entire episode live on the podcast with no ideas beforehand! Head to ... if you want to read along with the script while listening.

Evil Dead II
Groovy! Mark and Jeremy chat over one of their favorite movies ever, Evil Dead II! They talk horror movies, scary films, and motion pictures within the "horror" genre. It's a real fun one, and I recommend listening alongside Evil Dead II, if anything just because it's been a while and you should watch it again, right?

Reptiles in the Rose Garden w/ Chloe Dykstra
Chloe Dykstra joins the podcast to watch an incredibly timely episode of The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 featuring George HW and Barbara Bush! Mario wears a frog suit and there's a whole insane frog song. Some other stuff happens too, but we end up going on some really long tangents to discover more lore about Bob Forward, Patrick Dempsey, and mysterious staircases in the woods.

Ask Us Anything!
It's a mailbag episode! Mark and Jeremy field questions from listeners, discuss how far is too far in satire, what their favorite Nicolas Cage movies are, do some Fuck/Marry/Kills, and a whole lot more.

INT. MARIO AND LUIGI'S APARTMENT
Mark and Jeremy sit down to pen the great American screenplay... a live action segment of 1989's The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! in which Mario and Luigi meet a really bad parody of Mad Max! I can't imagine you're awfully surprised by this, but things get silly! There's a lot of terrible Australian lingo and Luigi finds himself once again covered in blood.

Sneaky Lying Cheating Giant Ninja Koopas
WARNING: NOAM CHOMSKY DOES NOT APPEAR IN THIS EPISODE. Hey paisanos! Mark and Jeremy embark on a quest to, every now and then, watch an episode of 1990's The Adventures of Mario 3 and this is episode one! Mario and Luigi have been replaced by similar-sounding clones, koopa's got kids now, and there's a sad parrot who just wants to live in a cage.

Twitch Plays Hard Drive
Andy Holt and Kevin Flynn join the podcast to help write a brand new Hard Drive article live on Twitch with the help of viewers! The resulting piece is, no surprise, very stupid and funny and filmed with goofy characters from out of left field. Finally, proof that Hard Drive articles are best written by committee!

Batman (1966)
Holy podcasting, paisanos! Mark and Jeremy perform a live commentary of the 1966 Batman film, a movie that they both unironically love very much. Somehow, however, they managed to to record this episode right when YouTube shut down for a while, causing some confusion in the middle. Luckily, you don't really need to watch along with them if you don't want to — this episode is mostly just a fun discussion of why the '60s Batman just absolutely fuckin rules.

A Sausage Link to the Past
Hard Drive editors Mark and Jeremy write and perform an original episode of 1989's The Super Mario Bros. Super Show! in which Mario and his friends head to Hyrule Kingdom and run into Link and Zelda! The entirety of the script was written live on the podcast with no ideas beforehand and it gets incredibly silly. Head to thehardtimes.net/harddrive/a-sausage-link-to-the-past/ if you want to read along with the script while listening!
