Deathcakes Podcast -



The 80s and 90s: We lived it, and now we're dragging you back!


  • The DCP Appendix: I Pity The Ghoul!!

    30/10/2020 Duração: 01h31min

    Jay and illy take the podcast back to its storytelling roots in this episode, as they reminisce about trick-or-treating through Jay's hometown, their best and worst costumes and of course, the candy haul!   They also take a moment to pay tribute to a close friend of the family and his home, which was their Halloween "Home Base" for many years.

  • Cycle 1-1: Tooned In

    04/09/2020 Duração: 01h46min

    Deathcakes re-establishes its presence in 2020 by going back to one of the pillars of its past: cartoons!   By the mid-90s though, Saturday morning blocks were all but gone, partly due to the inception of Turner Broadcasting's new cable offering known as Cartoon Network.  Jay and illy are back to guide you through their memory of its beginnings, to its eventual, indelible mark on American pop culture. Intro Music: "The Breakfast Club" by Z-Trip (feat. Murs) / Background Music: "Old School" by DangerDoom / Outro Music: "Back To The Lab Again" by Prince Paul (feat. Wordsworth) 

  • DCP x KOTF - Return To Shaolin Graffiti: The Hulu Version [Wu-Tang: An American Saga]

    22/11/2019 Duração: 01h41min

    When Jay, illy and Ghost (then known as Rokmore, in a special guest spot) linked up in an early episode of Deathcakes to talk Wu-Tang, they had no idea at the time that the Keepers of the Funk podcast and the advent of No Jibba-Jabba FM were on the horizon.  They certainly didn't predict Wu-Tang: An American Saga to hit Hulu!  Now that all three scenarios have come to pass, the three hosts join up yet again in search of some Shaolin graffiti and to weigh in on the docu-drama (spoiler alert: they LOVE it!) Outro Music: "Wu-Tang: 7th Chamber Pt. II"

    10/10/2019 Duração: 02h32min

    With Stranger Things 3 having been available for months now (seriously, anyone who was gonna watch, has seen it!), the guys freely discuss the series.  This, of course, breaks the Deathcakes 80's-90's mandate... or does it?? Intro Music: "Stranger" and Outro Music: "Lucas", by Mega-Ran --

    03/07/2019 Duração: 02h10min

    Summoned by Mr. T, their Spiritual Advisor, Jay and illy have been awakened from suspended animation to challenge the toughest competitors citywide, for the fate of the children.  And these are no ordinary children.  These are the kids who make up the Center, and must claim their rightful place in the world of recreational sports, if only Jay and illy can free the Center from bankruptcy... nah, wait..  that's the plot of Altered Beast, and "The Toughest Man In The World".  Scratch that.  The guys talk Sega Genesis, and before anyone says anything, this was actually recorded months before the announcement of the Genesis Mini console!

    **EDITORS NOTE: This episode was recorded weeks before Roseanne 2018 was canceled!

Outro Music: "Golden Girls" by Adam Vida (fka A-1) --

  • Episode 56 - Friday Night Heights

    20/05/2018 Duração: 02h08min

    Nowadays, you wouldn't want your TV show to air on a Friday night at all; no one would watch it. But back in the day, networks were still wise to steer clear of Friday nights, for fear of walking into ABC's ratings buzzsaw, the granddaddy of all branded programming blocks: TGIF! From its prehistory, to its heights, to its eventual decline and even some of its more obscure, forgotten offerings, Jay and illy chronicle their memories of it all. Music by DJ DN3 -- / Outro Music: "Days Go By" by Adam Vida (fka A-1) --  

  • Episode 55 - Ad-Nauseum

    19/03/2018 Duração: 02h11min

    Television commercials. As a kid, these were probably the most reviled parts of your viewing experience, interrupting your favorite shows at the best parts... but damn if those ads and jingles didn't stick with you! Jay and illy have incorporated them into DCP since the podcast's inception, but this time they put the focus squarely on retro commercials and the way they instantly trigger nostalgia. Intro/Outro Music: "I Love The 90's" by 1UP --

  • Episode 54 - "Ya Know What... FUCK IT!" [Gremlins 2: The New Batch]

    06/12/2017 Duração: 02h33min

    With Gremlins 2, out went the dark comedic tone of the original movie... right along with any sense of convention and reservations! One can only imagine what the discussions in those production meetings may have sounded like, but it's clear that the response to any and all suggestions was the same across the board: "Ya know what... FUCK IT!" Music by DJ Tee --

  • Episode 53 - "...I Don't Know, Man." [Gremlins]

    29/10/2017 Duração: 02h18min

    "So... exactly what is a mogwai?  If you should happen to get one as a pet, what are you supposed to feed it?  Speaking of feeding, what about those three rules about not feeding after midnight, or getting it wet, or keeping it away from bright light; what keeps these things from happening to mogwais in the wild?  But let's just get down to brass tacks: when the gremlin infestation happens, why are two teenagers the only people in town trying to put an end to it?  And in the grand scheme of things, whose fault is all this, REALLY?" "...I don't know, man." Intro/Outro Music: "Oh My God" by A Tribe Called Quest / Background Music by DJ Tee --   

  • Episode 52 - Milkier Cereal-er!

    27/10/2017 Duração: 01h35min

    So many cereals and toons in Episode 51... that story is over, but their rhyme ain't done! MORE reminiscing of Saturday Morning lineups of yesteryear, MORE cereal discussion, MORE probing into the curious links between breakfast cereals and the war on drugs, and... well... just... MORE, in Episode 52!   Intro Music: "Games and Cartoons" by Sammus -- / Background Music by DJ Tee -- / Outro Music: "Cereal Killer" by Geto Boys  

  • Episode 51.5 - Cartoon Intros 8: Syndicated Inc.

    08/10/2017 Duração: 33min

    Saturday morning cartoons - and after-school toons, to a lesser extent - are the heart and soul of Deathcakes, but what about the programming that aired on Sunday and weekday mornings? illy brings Jay along for a quick list of theme music from that lesser-remembered and often strange lineup of syndicated shows. Intro/Outro Music: "Syndicated Inc.", by Weird Al Yankovic / Background Music: "Double Dragons", by Fat Tony & Tom Cruz --

  • Episode 51 - Milky Cereal, Baby!

    23/09/2017 Duração: 02h08min

    Deathcakes goes back to its roots, to the very heart and soul of the Podcast: Saturday Morning Cartoons. But while Jay and illy are here to dig deeper into the seemingly endless lineup of 80s and 90s toons, they are soon sidetracked by another morning mainstay in the form of old school breakfast cereals, and the shadowy Ice Cream Jones! Intro Music: "Games and Cartoons" by Sammus -- / Background Music by DJ Tee --
