In this episode, we deviate from our normal routine, and ask a few age-old "what if" questions:  What if... we each had 10 million dollars, what would we do and how would we spend it?  What if... we could travel back in time, where would we go and what would we do?  What if... we had no financial obligations and we could do whatever we wanted, without having to worry about getting paid? What would be our dream jobs?  

Finally, another fun episode!

We're finally back!  First up, a new twist on the Washington Redskins team name controversy, this time with Congressional disdain; we also talk about the new "N-word rule" in the NFL, the meaning of the name Oklahoma, and other nonsense.  Next, a wrap-up for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, South Korea's skater doesn't win gold, but Russia does?  And why were the US and Canada men's hockey teams placed in the same bracket?  Mike and Carl know.  Finally, we finish up with anecdotes about the good we've done for animals as "vets".  All of this, and a whole lot more in EPICsode 20.

We've created a poll so we can get your take on the Redskins team name.  Follow the link and let us know what you think.

We test the "Six Degrees of Separation" theory in the first segment: a Super Bowl recap (Mike was wrong, Carl was right); Shaun White drops the Slopestyle event, along with two athletes who were injured so badly on the course they had to drop from the Olympics; phone hackers, stray dogs, Americans who are boycotting the Olympics, and Carl's solution for starving children; the future of music, the digital age, our tastes in music, iconic band images; and finally, we review Voxer for iPhone and Android, a push-to-talk app that Mike tries to sell to Carl, Mike plays the "good brother" card, and Carl defends his use of the fax machine, again.


Special thanks to @donwrangler for the suggested topic, the future of music!

This week’s movie review, The Avengers, starring a bunch of awesomeness.  Mike and Carl both hate Samuel L. Jackson, but Carl loves the Black Widow, and… Mike loves Dora?  Stoney Tark is Iron Man, and Jew Hackman is Wolverine, but Hawkeye's hand-eye coordination is lame, and heli-carriers can’t be real.  Our first ever gear review, the CRKT M16-Z series pocket knife.  Superman vs. Batman casting update: the creator of Facebook  as Lex Luthor and Simba’s Uncle Scar as Alfred.  John Malkovich and Leo di Caprio get added to Mike’s list of actors he hates.  DC’s revolving door for movie roles.  And we finish up with our Super Bowl picks, which are a bit after the fact because Carl is lazy and didn’t get this episode out on Sunday like he was supposed to.

Our first ever movie review! We discuss the recently released film, "Lone Survivor".  You are advised now to skip this segment if you a) haven't watched the movie yet, or b) have not read the account given on the actual mission, because we spoil it like no one's business.  After that, Mike rages over Senator De Leone's ludicrous comments about his supposed "ghost guns" and pretty much debunks the Senator's argument in just a few short minutes. Carl rants about Justin Cyrus, or Miley Bieber, or whatever his/her name is. We finish up with a "weather report" from Mike!

In this episode: we discuss performance enhancing drug use in Major League Baseball, Carl takes a stance for steroid use and wants EVERY player to juice up, while Mike is against PEDs entirely.  Finally, we disagree on something!  Then we move on to net neutrality and what the recent Circuit Court decision might mean for all of us, Mike explains how ISPs handle bandwidth and potential prioritization of traffic, and Carl rails against tiered pricing (for no reason).

Mike and Carl go off again.  This time it's all about people (stupid people, in Mike's words).  In this episode, we have ridiculous warning labels and the people who are responsible for them; winter, and the people who ruin it for everyone; and we finish up with the geek versus the hater, people who love technology and the anti-fanboys who hate them for it.

Christmas! We discuss the meaning, our family traditions, and some of the irritations.  Then, it's all about the zombie apocalypse! Mike can't wait for the apocalypse and Carl gives full details of his impending ruthlessness; then the discussion turns to strategies, firearms, bug-out plans, fortifications, and more.

Innocent until prove guilty... or is it? A man is almost arrested and subsequently banned for life from Walmart; Carl's trip to Target; knockout game retaliation, a "player" goes up against an opponent that fights back (video here), the bystanders' reactions, and people's ridiculous comments about the incident; and finally, left behind and locked in, a forgotten passenger, and Mike reminisces about a scene from The Shawshank Redemption.

The death of a 'star', how much press should we give a celebrity's death? Wage strikes, putting pressure on a higher minimum wage. Mariah Kang, is she an inspiration or an irritation?  And we finish up with Carl & Mike's man-crush on Noah Galloway.

This episode's all about bad people.  Locker room hazing: The Richie Incognito/Jonathan Martin/Miami Dolphins/NFL mess.  Picking on easy targets? Teens "play a game" where they punch the unsuspecting, until the unsuspecting are armed and retaliate.  Finally, offensive video games you've (hopefully) never heard of, but of course, we bring them up.  And, as always, Carl gets sidetracked.  Repeatedly.

Mike talks about his trip to Honduras: the less fortunate, the crazy drivers, and the bland food.  And then, the rules of the road, why do some people get so confused behind the wheel? Four way stops, the right-of-way, turn signals, you know, all those impossible rules to follow! And finally, a couple of Halloween costumes that go beyond tasteless and cross over into the realm of "What the hell were you thinking?"  Carl tries to decide if someone should be fired for being an idiot, while Mike tries to play Devil's advocate as usual.

The Washington Redskins team name controversy and what we think about it.  It’s a phone, it’s a tablet, it’s… a phablet?  How many devices do we need?  Kindle/eBook Readers versus iPad/Android tablets.  And finally, our topic suggestion from Twitter:  Who would win in a fight, Mike or Carl?

A special shout out to The Amish Baby Machine Podcast for their tweet suggesting that Mike and Carl should get in a fight and see who would win.  Thanks Dags and Jeff, you made our day!

Professional athletes, their pay, and their "contributions" to society; Mike doesn't watch sports; Carl proves he's a hypocrite, and Mike plays Devil's advocate as always; Mike doesn't watch sports; the Olympics and the professional athletes who work to compete in them; and a debate worth our time, cats versus dogs; and finally, Mike DOESN"T. WATCH. SPORTS. Oh the humanity!

Carl is back; we touch on the Affordable Care Act... or Obamacare... or whatever you want to call it.  Sorry folks, America is closed, but Congress has it made.  And finally, free services, namely Gmail and Facebook, and the people who whine about them.

We have a special guest in Carl's absence and we talk about the TSA and the economic value of hybrid vehicles.  Mike expresses a little Bro-Mance and has difficult time refraining from hitting the desk; THUD THUD....thank you, Mike. Finally, we can't help but talk just a bit about motorcycles.

Mike's audio sucks for the first few minutes; women in the military & law enforcement, bad attitudes go a long way, and angry female cops; Carl's wife is more hardcore than he is; Starbuck's says "please don't do that"; Mike & Carl love guns AND coffee; and finally, a sponsor for our podcast? Seriously?

We talk about coffee, it's delicious goodness, it's health benefits, and Mike uses the word 'plethora'; concealed carry permits in Iowa... for the blind? Mike makes a useless analogy, Carl may very well be wrong about Ohio, and Mike is wrong as usual.  All of this and more!

Mac vs. PC, the age old debate, with a side of Android vs. iPhone. Fluoride, do we really need it in our drinking water? And finally, tech tips, antivirus options for Windows, is it needed on a Mac? All of this and more, on this week's episode of the Two Bored Vets podcast.

This is the Labor Day weekend edition and our second episode of TBV.  We give an update on the murder of Delbert "Shorty" Belton; a quick recap on last week's conversation on motorcycles; an intense conversation about Marvel vs. DC, in which Mike sort of loses it over Ben Affleck as the next Batman; finally, we finish up with Mike and Carl reminiscing about how they met, and Carl rambles on about the National Guard for what seems like forever. 

WARNING: Carl's knowledge of DC Comics' story lines is debatable, at best. Take it with a grain of salt and enjoy the show anyway.

Motorcycles, Delbert "Shorty" Belton, Star Wars vs. Star Trek?  Yep, we crammed all that into a 30 minute show.  Listen here!
