It only took 103 episodes, but Pete and Bill finally convinced a pro wrestler to stop by. Pretty Peter Avalon, star of Championship Wrestling From Hollywood and PWG, previously "Norv Fernum" of TNA, joins us to talk about the life of a professional wrestler, a bit of how the sausage is made and how exactly you end up getting thrown into a heating duct. You can follow PPA on Twitter here, on Facebook here, on Instagram here and you can find his webstore here.

It's official! The third annual Doritos Locos Tacos Throwdown will take place on Saturday, September 27. We give you all the information you'll probably need about the annual, weird contest that we're not sure why we still run. After that, it's time to talk about. Pop music! Why isn't Jessie J more popular? Just who IS Shellback, anyway? Will Maroon 5 ever write another song? These and other questions will be answered!

What's the Las Vegas Greyhound station like? How to you properly store a yard-garita souvenir cup? How will babes know that it was a cool story and that now it's time for refreshments? Thankfully, Pete spent the entire weekend in Las Vegas, flying solo, so here's here to give us all the answers. This, plus Bill finally "clears the air" on vaping. (Vape joke.)

Hello everyone and welcome to the unbelievable 100th episode of Scientific Podcast Goes Boink! We're amazed and delighted we've made it this far. To celebrate, we did something we've been meaning to do for two years: read the children's book version of Colton Burpo's amazing tale, "Heaven is for Real." Our friend Brandon Stroud of With Leather was kind enough to stop by and help us out. It was a blast. Give it a listen and check the links below to read along!

Peter and Bill sat down this week with Ryan Penagos, Executive Editorial Director at and master of all things Internet. We talked some more about Guardians of the Galaxy, about how crossover events work, about love of comic books and ruining childhoods, about gender- and race-swapping beloved characters and the nerd rage that follows, about how to break into the comic book industry and about tacos. Heck, we even talked Gay Batman!

Pete and Bill have seen a movie! Guardians of the Galaxy is out and everyone is talking about it. Well, Pete and Bill are talking about it, at least. This podcast is half spoiler-free and half spoiler-heavy, so you have been warned. If you haven't seen the movie yet, please go see it. It's well worth your time. ROCKETS SHOOTING MACHINE GUNS.

Pete and Bill sit down to discuss some important business. The third annual #DoLoThroDo is just a handful of weeks away. We remind you to prepare your bodies appropriately. Other pressing matters concern the new Lana Del Rey album (and naturally the question of authenticity) and pondering the nature of RiFF RAFF, who is remarkably self-actualized for a non-deity. Come join us. For the night is dark, and full of tacos.

Pete and Bill settle in for a nice chat. Pete consumes some adult beverages and they talk about a comedy show, some problems with race and wrestling, whether the Rock is a black man (yes) and what the heck is the deal with the Insane Clown Posse (they're fun).

It is Bill's birthday, so he and Pete are obligated to talk about that for a while. The conversation moves on to the Garfield/Nermal dichotomy, before getting down to the important business that is #LilKimWeek. Be warned: adult language and topics herein.
