Episode #141 – Watch Mickey Mouse Or Die!

In the past nearly-4-months since our last episode, the country got safe enough for people to travel again, so this episode has segments recorded when Luke visited Carrie and Alexann in June, when Carrie and Alexann visited Luke in July, when Carrie visited Luke again in August, and Carrie joined Luke online via Zoom for the “What’s Luke Plugging Now?” segment, which because of that ended up being 45 minutes long. It’s the first time “What’s Luke Plugging Now?” was so long that I felt the need to put a song break in the middle of it.

Things discussed in this episode include:
– Alexann’s epic Animal Crossing prank she played on Luke
– Carrie giving Luke the “Colbert Questionnaire”
– Luke’s dream coming true of playing Transformers with Alexann
– Interactions with kittens, lizards, and groundhogs, but no peacocks or parrots
– And MC Bat Commander vs. the Drunken Cowboy at the Orange County Fair!

This episode features comedy & music tracks by Adam Sandler, Insane Ian, Richard Cheese, TV’s Kyle, Tony Goldmark, Art Paul Schlosser, Worm Quartet, Adventure Time, Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), the great Luke Ski, The Lonely Island, The Aquabats!, Mr.B The Gentleman Rhymer, Murs featuring Humpty Hump & Shock G, Puffy AmiYumi, Teen Titans Go!, Knuckleheadz, Mighty Magiswords, Steven Universe, and Flight Of The Conchords.

Episode #140 – Not Comical Enough

After 7 months away, Luke & Carrie’s Bad Rapport has returned, is fully vaccinated, and is hugging you awkwardly for much longer than you’re comfortable with. In this episode Carrie talks about her new favorite show “A Late Show with Stephen Colbert”, and her new hobby of Geocashing. Luke also talks about things but frankly I can’t remember what they were. Also the “What’s Luke Plugging Now?” segment lasts about 18 minutes, so there’s that.

This episode is jam packed with comedy & music tracks by Professor Elemental & Mister Frisbee, Lin-Manuel Miranda & Emily Blunt, Mega Ran, The Aquabats, Adam Sandler, Knuckleheadz, TV’s Kyle, Epic Rap Battles of History, Bad Lip Reading, Devo Spice, The Lonely Island featuring Natalie Portman, Tony Goldmark, Dan Bull, brentalfloss, Starbomb, Worm Quartet, Sarah Silverman & Gal Gadot, Stephen Colbert, Schaffer The Darklord / The Department of Darkness, Jake Dewar, Whitney Avalon, Art Paul Schlosser, Flat 29, Power Salad, Steven Universe cast, Richard Cheese, Michael William Hunter, MC Lars, Robbie Ellis, Ninja Sex Party, & Insane Ian.

Episode #139 – It’s Gonna Work!

It’s been 6 months and 9 days since our last episode, which is 127 years in ‘2020’ time. Everything is horrible and sucks and the world is coming to an end. So is posting a new episode of Bad Rapport going to make things better or worse? Let’s find out, shall we?

The episode starts with a surprise appearance from Jace McClain of Nuclear Bubble Wrap and Needlejuice records, because when I went to share the Zoom link with Carrie, I accidentally clicked on Jace’s FB messenger icon and didn’t notice. Following that, Luke talks about his commission work, and Carrie talks about her Mom’s move into her, Josh, & Alexann’s house in the Chicago area, which also included Sasha, the wonderful doggo who is seen in the podcast’s image. Later on, we do a review of the awesome and hilarious new animated sci-fi show “Star Trek: Lower Decks”.

This episode features comedy & music tracks by Bob E. Kelly, Devo Spice, Insane Ian, the great Luke Ski, Marc With a C, Richard Cheese, Seana Huizenga, Public Enemy, Epic Rap Battles of History, Brak, Misha D., The Aquabats, Worm Quartet, Steven Universe, Scooter Picnic, Brentalfloss, Robbie Ellis, Patton Oswalt and the “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” Cast, Mighty Magiswords, Schäffer the Darklord, Matt Griffo, Radioactive Chicken Heads, and Coco.

We got some more comedy songs for the Covid-19 Quarantine, for the 2020 Election, and 2 sets at the end of the show for Halloween, so get your laugh on and party like there’s no tomorrow, because there probably isn’t. But just in case there is, VOTE like the lives of everyone you love depends on it.

Episode #138 – Jason Bateman From Silver Spoons

A podcast two decades in the making!… Meaning that we started recording it in one decade, and finished it another decade. Also, you will think that it lasts a decade, but it’s actually just over 4 hours in length.

In this episode we start off on New Year’s Eve talking about our holiday experiences and reviewing Season 8 of “Letterkenny”. Then we ship ahead to April Fools Day, where the only fools are anyone who chooses to go out into the world for non-essential reasons during the international Covid-19 pandemic self-isolation quarantine. We also in a couple segments are joined by some guests from our sister podcasts, “Blasted Bill” Putt from “The Pod Of Destiny”, and Kevin Eldridge of “The Flopcast”, as well as Bill’s friend Clark and his digital cat.

This episode features comedy & music tracks by the great Luke Ski, Hamilton, Devo Spice featuring Blythe Renay, Jodie Whitaker, Carrie Dahlby, MC Bat Commander, The Aquabats!, Cosmik, Green Jelly, Coco, Kornflake, Mighty Magiswords, Pinkfong, “Weird Al” Yankovic, TV’s Kyle, The Library Bards, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Richard Cheese, Rachel Bloom, Schaffer The Darklord, the Spongebob Musical, Bad Lip Reading, and Daddyphatsnaps featuring Bonecage.

Episode #136 – Old & Dumb

Well. 10 months, 13 days. That is the new record for the longest we have gone between posting proper episodes of “Luke & Carrie’s Bad Rapport”. My goal was to have this episode posted before Halloween, but instead it is being posted on (in my time zone) November 5th, Guy Fawkes Day. And not knowing it would turn out that way led to me not including the Epic Rap Battle with Guy Fawkes, nor any V for Vendetta references. *exasperated Luke sigh* But I did (upon popular demand) make a couple of our comedy music / track sets filled with all “Halloween” appropriate music, for those of you still getting your spooky fall groove on.

In this episode, we read your comments, Luke tells us a “True Tale” of something that happened to him during a recent Ride-Share Shift, and Carrie talks about getting to teach voice lessons to little kiddos for a “Frozen” Jr. Musical. We also review two new-to-recent-history comedy TV shows we have discovered and totally love, “What We Do In The Shadows” (hence the pic of Carrie dressed as the vampire Nadja from the show), and “Letterkenny” (hence Luke photoshopped as hockey player Reilly from the show). Nadja is old, Reilly is dumb. Get it?

This almost 4-hour-long episode is a pretty even split between the talking parts and the comedy music / other tracks parts. The latter of which features tracks by: “Weird Al” Yankovic, Steven Universe, The Book Of Life, Twisted Sister, featuring Mark Metcalf, SpongeBob Squarepants The Musical, Patton Oswalt, Barack Obama, Boy Meets Robot, Bernie Mac, The Aquabats!, Tony Goldmark, mc chris, TV’s Kyle featuring Lindzilla, Epic Rap Battles Of History, Schaffer The Darklord, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton, Seth MacFarlane, The Lonely Island, Tammy Faye Starlite, Mr. Dooves, the great Luke Ski, Mighty Magiswords, Carrie Dahlby, Devo Spice, Creative Mind Frame a.k.a. 1-UP, Bonnie Gordon, Insane Ian, LEX the Lexicon Artist, Norma Tanega, Mikey Mason, Will Smith, Laila Berzins, Matt Griffo, & Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, featuring Rachel Bloom and Santino Fontana.

We hope and intend to put out our next episode just before Christmas, but it might have to wait until after New Year’s Eve, we’ll see. In any case, we hope to put out episodes on a more regular basis, perhaps every 3 to 4 months, and try to keep them in the realm of lengths of somewhere between just under 2 hours, to an upper limit of 3 hours. It’ll depend on how gabby we get, and how much cool comedy music & tracks we have to play for you guys.

Thanks to all 35 of you for hanging in there with us, and we hope you have an enjoyable rest-of-whatever-this-decade-is-called.
