When you wish upon a star… you notice some pretty weird stuff that you missed as a kid. Listen along this week as we watch everyone’s favorite puppet become a real boy – and talk about how Pinocchio is both exactly how we remembered it, and infinitely more terrifying.

Comb back your mullets and perms because this week we are going back to the 80’s!

In many ways, the 80’s were a much simpler time. A time where fashion was colorfully neon and bold, where people loved to actually go out to the movies and go dancing, and a time where random slang words were ‘gnarly’ and ‘hella’ plentiful. Music was particularly ‘bitchin’ during this time because it gave rise to some of the best karaoke songs and, not to mention, music videos that has ever existed. From whiny guitars to synth drums to dancing in a skin-tight outfit while dramatically belting out lyrics that put today’s songs to shame – 80’s music had it it all. This week join Tuong La and Tubular guests Axandre Lemours, Victoria Luloff, and Colleen Wang as they ‘totally’ come up with a ‘rad’ Top 5 80’s Songs List!

Come under our musical mistletoe this Christmas!

It’s that time of the year again for the Ranked Christmas/Holiday special! It’s also that time of the year where you cannot escape the magic of holiday music everywhere you go! While many (MANY) artists have put out their own renditions of holiday classics and originals, only some songs have stood the test of time and found a special way in our hearts (and playlists) year to year. Join Tuong La and his band of Merry Elves James Beattie. Kierstyn Beattie, and Laura Gordon as they jingle all the way to come up with a list of the Top 5 Christmas Songs!

Summer Loving, Summer Dreaming, Summer Ranking

We’re finally almost here! Summer is upon us and we could not be more excited to finally enjoy all the joys that this season brings us. So get off your beach butts & grab your limed-up Coronas and join Tuong La and Rays of Sunshine Evelyn Barbr, Hayley Kellett, and Jesse Bergen as they cap off our quartet of seasons episodes and rank a list of the Top 5 Best Things about Summer!

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows.

Can you feel it? The snow is melting, the temperature is starting to rise, and the world around us is starting to come alive! That’s right Spring is here and is ready for some ranking! This week join Tuong La and Little Rays of Sunshine Justin Godelie, Shannon Godelie, and Laura Gordon as they plant their seeds in the PodCavern (don’t be gross) and grow a Top 5 Best Things about Spring list!

On Talkin’ Tuong’s Half Birthday, Tuong invites PodCavern Regular Taylor Fleming to join him to talk about some of the hits from October including Venom, Daredevil Season 3, and A Star is Born.

…also we are at it again with another bonus topic which is the new Halloween movie!

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!

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
