Fear of a Dork Planet ep 18 What We Do in the Shallows


Erik and Annie chum the waters of shark week and discuss Everything is Teeth, the failures of Benchley’s Jaws novel, Spielberg’s masterpiece, and ruminate over this summer’s fishiest film, The Shallows. We even go so far as to pitch next year’s best shark movies before Corporate America can get their greasey mitts on ’em. Look out Sharknado, Fear of a Dork Planet is gonna get’cha.

EP 86 Sorting the Phonies

“Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You’re by no means alone on that score, you’ll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You’ll learn from them—if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It’s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry.” – J.D. Salinger


New York City is a mystical Eden of cool. Everyone dreams of one day walking its urine scented alleyways and lulled to sleep in the dulcet tones of car horns and street talk. Crocodile Dundee crossed the globe to get there. The Muppets took Manhattan by storm. The Gremlins selected the City to reproduce. King Kong claimed it as his and a poorly though out Godzilla attempted to hatch its brood in Madison Square Garden. It’s the city that never sleeps and home to all our fictional dreams. And, chiseled into high school curriculum across the country, the quintessential New York novel perfectly captures that monster of adolescence that lives in every cynical jab or sarcastic quip. We are all a little bit broken. We are all a little bit wounded. We are all nursing hidden wounds. We are all a little bit  Holden Caulfield.

They Might Be Giants – New York CIty

THIS WEEK on FoaDP! The dog did not eat our podcast, nor is Erik pregnant. We’ve been chillin’ with villains cool as Bob Dylan. We’re passing out cardinal sins to ALL the pilgrims! We got helium honeys and Down Undah Dudettes. We ain’t scared o’ no goats, or ghosts, or Glowstick puke. And with God as our witness, we shall never vote for a cranky Oompah Loompa!
