    Great stuff. I liked the pitch for Colony Talk. First thing that came to mind for me was a talk show set in the first Moon/Mars colony; with each episode featuring a different colonist.

    My suggestion for a future pitch is one me and my friends throw around every once in a while:
    "Strip Club Justice"
    Certainly won't taint the pitch by describing what we've came up with; besides, I doubt you guys will stray too far.

    The question is, is this for an animal themed game show involving dam building? Or does this show need to be shown on a premium channel?

    Future eps will be video format, yes?
    I was thinking it would be kind of cool to watch you guys coming up with the titles in the moment, then pitching, rather than coming in already prepared with a list.  Gotta do your pitches on the fly, no prep!  :)
    I like this though... .loving all of the extra premium content.  And I would totally watch all of these shows.  Colony Talk would be a good follow up show to Game of Thrones.

    The bad news is we have four episodes already recorded, and we didn't do video. But, I'm willing to do video in the future.

    We do pitch on the fly, we just pregenerste a list of a few because sometimes the random generator spits out gibberish or bullshit. But we could record that process, too. Whatever floats ya'lls boat!

  • Fear Reunited is a show about people who have spent years in therapy getting over there irrational fears. Once they have succeeded and begun to live an ordinary healthy life without the fear, the show takes it upon itself to once again firmly establish that fear again in them by systematically terrorizing them with whatever their fear is (ex: spiders). Thus, fear (once lost) reunited.

    Yeah, I realized after I did a second listen that it was in the moment.  Sorry 'bout that!

    I feel like "The Slow Skater" could totally be aka The Life and Times of Tonya Harding.

    "The Weakest Beaver" could just be a backwoods, way hick, trashy game-show version of The Bachelor.  Every week the contestants are put through various challenges such as pig callin', beer shotgunnin', and roadkill gatherin'.   That last one actually comes in handy, as the contestants also have to cook their favorite critter "jus' the way mama 'n 'dem always done".  Every week, finalists are presented not with a rose, but with a beaver pelt. You really don't want to know who wins this show, trust me.
  • Feels like Rick and Morty's Interdimensional Cable might of had an influence on this new bit, love it
  • @A_Ron_Hubbard, are you familiar w Adam Carolla's pitch of "Pediph-Isle" on Simmons' podcast? Epic shit! Very excited for this pod.

    Fear Reunited: ten contestants are placed alone in a pitch dark room one by one, while Peaches and Herb's "Reunited" is piped in and on repeat. The idea is to see how long they can stand it before pressing the panic button and escaping the room. The person who lasts the longest wins $$$ and a lifetime supply of Riunite. Hosted by Joe Rogan.
  • A_RON,

    Is there going to be an actual podcast feed for this new show?

    Thanks,
    Brian from Maryland

    "The Jefferson's Starship" (I know it's too obvious, but I was trying to think of fun titles and it made me laugh/I'd watch the shit out of that)

  • If you guys need more ways to generate pitches you could always go through random podcast or TV episode titles that you haven't seen and pitch those. Here's a couple from Harmontown episodes A Ron skipped:
    Sleepy Canyoneer
    Pakisnap!
    Blood on the Corn

    Haha, the least dangerous game made me laugh out loud.  I have a feeling it would star Paul Giamatti.

    Just to chime in about the live vs recorded discussion that was on the last lunch. I agree with Jim, not everything should be live. Unless the segment demands a live format, imo editing always makes stuff better.

    Just watch James Rolfe'a YouTube channel (the AVGN). The actual content he makes is great, but a ton of the live stuff they do (which is mostly playing old games they don't remember and have nothing to say about) is almost unwatchable.
  • Fear Reunited is a hidden camera show where we take stars from 90s slasher flicks and scare the hell out of them. We can have the full cast of Friday the 13th visit a horror campsite, the Scream cast gets locked in a Movie theatre etc.

  • Haven't listened to the podcast yet but there are a ton of movie title generators online. here is one. http://moviebooknamegenerator.blogspot.my/

    "The Slow Cat"
    Animated film about a cat who thinks he is a turtle. Continually rejected by other turtles he goes through trials and tribulations until he finallly excepts that he is a cat. The climax is that he must race another cat to win the heart of the greatest pussy on the planet and he wins through being slow and cautious. things he learned as a turtle. 

    "Making it like a Talker"
    Leo DiCaprio goes to capital hill as a lobbyist for a pharmaceutical giant. He sees the dirty underbelly of the US political system and all of the BS that goes on there.
