The Untenable Podcast, Mix Tape Snippet 1: The Mars Dolta

The one with the spaces between.

This week’s episode is another mixtape – sorta- and is based out of necessity and inability to record this week. This week’s blast from the past is from Untenable Podcast, Episode 18: Of Wormholes and Spoilers , in which Mike and Jay unpack some of the different contextual and existential issues that arose from their viewings of Interstellar.


The Untenable Podcast, Episode 119: Back to the Sunken Place

The one where the boys retract their healing factors.

In this week’s SPOILERIFIC episode, Mike and Jay return from Spring Break and talk Logan, Get Out, Zelda, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and Horizon Zero Dawn.

The Untenable Podcast, Mixtape #6: SPRING BREAK IN THE USA

The one with two hosts on Spring Break.

This week’s episode is another Mixtape because Mike and Jay are gonna party during SPRING BREAK. Actually, no. Both are on Spring Break, but both have commitments preventing them from recording new content; however, the next episode should be chock full of gaming and movie talk from the both of them. SPRING BREAK FOREVER!
