It’s getting hot in herre…

Do you feel that? Sun is out, Ray-Bans are on, and summer is in full swing! What better way to groove out to the nicest time of the year than to listen to some tunes while you’re hanging out the cottage, cruising down the highway with your windows down, or laying down in your 10ft sandcastle on a beach. Join Tuong La and Saucy Summertime Lovers Adam Jasim, Ryan Hueglin, and Laura Gordon as they rank the Top 5 best summer songs of ALL TIME!

What’s your favorite summertime jams? Let us know in the comments/ email us at ranked@podcavern.com

Ground Rules

  • songs must invoke the spirit of summer rather than a multi-purpose song that is good at all times of the year
  • nostalgia can be a factor
  • has good vibes and makes you happy/content (ie relaxing, reminds of you of the beach, water)
  • we are talking about ALL TIME songs
  • doesn’t actually have to have the word “summer” in the song

Check out our post-podcast Spotify curated playlist of hot summer singles courtesy of Ryan Hueglin!

We all know real life sucks.

From the dawn of human kind, we’ve always envied the fictional worlds that we see in movies, books, TV, and video games. We all have had a moment where we thought “Woah, I want to play broom soccer-dodgeball in the sky”, or “Damn, I really want to punch that orc in the kisser” or even “BEAM ME UP SCOTTY!” Well today Tuong La and daydreamers Justin Godelie, Shannon Godelie, and Dan Foerster have a chance to live out their fantasies and rank the best Top 5 Fictional Worlds to Live In!

Did we miss anything? What are your favorite fictional worlds that you’d want to live in? Let us know that and more top 5 ideas here  – – > ranked@podcavern.com

Ground Rules

  • Fictional worlds can be from any media ie: books,tv, movies, film, comics, etc.
  • You will have the knowledge of what you have now when you get transported to that world. ie: if you know a lot about Harry Potter then you know what you know now of Harry Potter
  • A “world” can include the entire galaxy of that particular fiction. Ie: You don’t need to nominate a specific planet in Star Wars..just say you want to live in the star wars universe
  • You can live in this world in a specific point in time ie: post evil overlord reign
  • You will be transported to this world as the closest thing as a “starter class”. ie: starter wizard, starter jedi, etc.

This week’s episode is all singing, dancing, and showstoppin’ ragtime fun! Join Tuong and Jazz Hand Experts Axandre Lemours, Ali Harris, and Nicole Milne as they tap-dance their way into our hearts and rank the top 5 best musical films!

Did we miss anything? Email us your favorite musical films and new top 5 ideas to ranked@podcavern.com!

Ground Rules

  • Music is integral to the story, they don’t have to necessarily have to be sung out loud, but it has to be key to the movie’
  • Doesn’t need to be necessarily be classified as your traditional musical
  • Just because it has a great soundtrack doesn’t mean it qualifies. The music itself needs to play a keypart in the movie. (ie: if the movie is stripped out of this film would it still work?)
  • If a theater production of the musical was filmed then that does not count (ie: Shrek, Newsies)
  • If it is a movie adaptation of a musical it counts
