Happy New Year! How do our heroes top the "modest proposal" of marriage from last week (if you haven't heard it yet, check out episode 152 in our archives on iTunes)? They feature a discussion of the hottest Broadway show on the planet; that's how. George is joined by none other than his wife, Connie, to talk about seeing the play that took the world by storm in 2016 - Hamilton.
And speaking about the proposal from last week, we offer some extra content that was not included in that episode to spotlight the happy couple, Rob and Amy, yet again. It's a nice way to put a cap on 2016 and start 2017 with a much needed positive vibe.
If we have whet your appetite about Hamilton, please do not forget the original Broadway cast recording is available via Amazon (that's where George got it) and we ask that you use the Amazon link at www.georgeandtony.com when making that and all your future online purchases.
We're young, scrappy, and hungry and we're not throwing away our shot!

A Modest Proposal
Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa!
After appearing on the show in episode 127 (check our archives at www.georgeandtony.com), Rob Shade, the man who designed the logo for Buzz Burbank News and Comment (www.buzzburbank.libsyn.com) right here on the RELM Network (www.relmnetwork.com), makes his triumphant return to the boiler room studio along with his girlfriend, Amy Fredericks. Amy is an astronomer and naturally questions about the stars come up, along with discussions about their mutual love of DisneyLand and how they embrace geek culture.
Do not miss the last third of the show where something extra special happens. Let's just say Rob and Amy exited the studio as different people compared to when they entered. While we can't say this is a first for podcasts, it can't occur very often.
Happy New Year!

Due to holiday preparations and festive events, our heroes only had time to record a condensed, stocking stuffer sized version of their landmark 150th episode. Hey, it's better than coal!
Tony gives his spoiler-free review of Doctor Strange. George tells us a little bit about Paper Girls, published by Image Comics, and a lot about his current guilty TV pleasures. Plus, he tells a story about his father and the late, great Don Calfa. Editor's Note: George made a mistake regarding Mr. Calfa's filmography - he appeared in Return of the Living Dead, not Night of the Living Dead.
Please use the Amazon link at www.georgeandtony.com for all your holiday shopping needs. All George and Tony want for Christmas are more five star reviews on iTunes and for you to share their links on your social media pages. Thank you and Happy Holidays!

You Dropped A Bomb On Me
We swear we had no intention of spending almost the entire episode talking about the results of the 2016 Presidential election but what did we think would happen when we recorded the day after Election Day?

All this plus Tony has a big announcement and we hear some exciting news about NOVA Con, Northern Virginia's premiere comic book and gaming convention taking place July 28-30, 2017 at the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner, VA.
