The boys have long held that The Goonies is a bad movie. And for their entire lives people have been telling them they are wrong. So for their encore commentary they sit down to watch Richard Donner's 1985 treasure hunt "classic" to prove once and for all that they were right... You're welcome.

(Movie begins at 16:50)

Also, make sure to check out our bonus commentary for Cyndi Lauper's music video "The Goonies 'R' Good Enough" over on our website! Part 1 of the video can be found here, and part 2 here.

As always, we'd like to thank Laura Hammond of the webcomic XP for our show's art, Bensound.com for our outro music, everyone who contributed to the making of The Goonies, and you the listener for sticking with us! If you like what you hear, there's a whole back catalogue over on the site! Follow us for updates on our next grand adventure, Quantum Leap of Faith!

Having exhausted every good idea over the course of the first 99 episodes (and the 27-ish commentary episodes, the Star Wars miniseries, the Fast and the Furious miniseries, the pilot for their next venture, and some other random sidesteps), the boys are left with only the show itself to talk about. So enjoy this very special, very narcissistic, totally not requested Behind the Music-style episode.

As always, we'd like to thank Laura Hammond of the webcomic XP for our show's art, Bensound.com for our outro music, everyone who contributed to this week's (or any week's!) episode, and you the listener for sticking with us!

See you soon!

Hey, folks!

 

So… we’re ending the show.

 

Now… don’t riot just yet. We’ve got some more words. And some good news at the end. So stick with us!

 

We started this show back in April of 2015 when both our lives were radically different. We’ve had a blast chatting into these mics for close to three years now, and have been honored to have you along for the ride (we honestly could not have made this without you). But as we have approached the arbitrary landmark that is Episode 100 and as our lives have grown bloated with work and other adult bothers, it has become increasingly clear to us that it’s time to move on to other projects. We’ve grown a lot, and we’ve laughed a lot, and honestly we’re surprised we’ve made it this far (or that we actually did it at all). But life is hectic… and we’re basically out of ideas. So The Worst Adults I Know podcast will be coming to an end.



By the end of February we’ll mostly have things wrapped up. We’ll be doing another three-ish episodes and a commentary, at least. We’re going to be doing one last mailbag episode this week, so if you have any questions and topics you’ve been dying for us to address, speak now or forever hold your peace.

 

Couple of Things:

 

  • The main podcast feed will remain up as far as we know. In some fashion. Because it would be a shame if our eight days-worth of recordings vanished from the Internet.
  • If you’re a Patreon contributor, we’re cutting off billing at the end of February. So no need to do that yourself. If you are still awaiting tier rewards, they’ll come your way. (It’s a little unclear right now if all the hours of bonus stuff will stay up there or not, but we’ll find a new home for it if not.)
  • The final commentary will be The Goonies. Because you’re welcome.
  • You haven’t heard the last of us! See below! Immediately!

 

Don’t worry, we’re not done with podcasting. We wouldn’t just leave you high and dry with the other million or so podcasts you could be listening to instead of us… No! We’re much too vain for that. We need you. And we need you to keep putting our dumb voices in your beautiful ears. So keep your eyes on the socials for the release of Quantum Leap of Faith, our would-be fancast where we will be watching through the entirety of the television program Quantum Leap. It’s going to be fun whether you are a fan of the show or not. We promise.

 

So that’s that. The show’s ending, but from its ashes will rise a Scott Bakula-shaped phoenix… So NBD. As Adam likes to say, “It’s been real. It’s been fun. It’s been real fun.” And the fun is only just beginning.

 

Smell you Sunday, suckers.

 

With love,

Adam and Matthew,

the worst adults you know

The boys were minding their own business - just eating candy bars and gossiping about that old factory on the edge of town - when BAM! Golden ticket! Now they'll have to square off against a psychopathic candy mogul for your attention... because they're watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory!

(Movie begins at 11:24.)

We're all getting older, but the boys are at that stage where they're starting to notice it. And they don't like it. This week they implant magnets in their hands, correct their terrible posture, disguise themselves to escape youths, allow themselves feel (finally), and explain away their inability to be up to date on hip lingo... all in an attempt to stave off the inevitable.

Talking Points:

  • New America is at war! (00:00)
  • Tennis balls and internets! (06:56)
  • Brain slugs! (10:10)
  • Hand upgrades! (13:52)
  • Overexertion! (20:42)
  • Learning to feel! (26:11)
  • Dress the part! (32:20)
  • Outdated lingo! (38:39)
  • You're so fragile! (43:04)
  • New diet! (55:15)
  • Imposter signal! (59:00)

No one has ever praised the boys for their interior design choices. And rightly so. So it should come as no surprise that their attempts to improve their living spaces in this hour lead to battling mutants, showering with houseplants, ruining a dorm, and rebooting Home Improvement. Bob Vila would be so proud.

Talking Points:

  • A Taylor Family reunion! (00:00)
  • Wood 2: Hyperwood! (05:56)
  • Lose a wall, gain a speakeasy! (14:17)
  • How to hang? (20:49)
  • House plants: fake v. dead! (29:18)
  • Water woes! (37:30)
  • Shock therapy! (46:43)
  • Light up your life! (48:42)
  • Adam's bed sheet soap box! (56:58)

And remember: Safety third!

Jan 7, 2018

Remember 2017? Adam doesn't. This week finds the boys grasping for ANYTHING to talk about from last year... and failing spectacularly as they try to hype 2018.

Also, Matthew got a dog!

Talking Points:

  • Inverting the Earth! (00:00)
  • New Year's Baby vs. Nazis vs. the Disney Vault! (5:15)
  • Future toilet terror! (11:12)
  • The (fake) root of all fake news! (14:15)
  • Newborn celebrities! (18:50)
  • Fun Time Larry! (25:30)
  • Au naturale fashion! (28:43)
  • The best movie of 2017! (34:18)
  • In Thanos we trust! (40:15)
  • Moviepass: Matthew's downfall! (44:28)
  • A dog named Stilts?! (46:40)
  • Big ups! (56:08)
