    017 - Put the Olympics in Wakanda

    Just like a white winged dove, we’ve made it to episode seventeen. On this episode Niki and Jules discuss the latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the Netflix reboot of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Niki teaches Jules about Winter Olympic Sports and they proceeded to have a heated debate over which Olympic season is more dangerous. All this and a little less on this installment of Tangential.

    016 - Fellow of the Pod

    On this episode of Tangential, Niki and Jules decide to go back to the popcorning method and bounce some delightful kernels around. Such unsalted, zero-trans fat carbs include job security in Drumpf's America, horror as a genre, and résumé building. Niki throws us all for a loop by starting a movie corner of his own and Jules' hits him with some trivia. All this and a little less on the sixteenth episode of Tangential.

    015 - Super Bowl 52 Post Show Roundup

    This Super Bowl Sunday, Jules and Niki delve into the  deep and tremendously rich lores of Lord of the Rings and Girl Scout cookies respectively. Later, Jules recommends some stellar medieval poetry and Niki breaks into a story about an unexpected, inherently dangerous visitor. All this and a little less on the fifteenth episode of Tangential.

    014 - Amy Pascal's DropMix

    On this installment of Tangential, Niki discusses the geopolitical environment that envelops Blizzard Entertainment’s team-based multiplayer online first-person shooter video game, Overwatch. Jules gives you a debriefing on entry level film and television jobs in Los Angeles whilst bowing down to Hollywood newcomer, Liz Hannah. Also, what’s the deal with MoviePass’ new restrictions? All this and a little less on the fourteenth episode of Tangential.

    013 - Thirteen Episodes? Damn.

    We're back after a school + winter break related hiatus! Thanks for sticking with us, and for new listeners, welcome to Tangential!

    This is the second episode where we've asked Lin to not sue us. Jules got back into In The Heights last week, and has made it a personal mission to learn the lyrics to "Sunrise". After a pit stop to examine the career path of one James Cameron, Niki talks about cartoons for a bit, with Cartoon Network's We Bare Bears taken up the majority of his TV time as of late.

    On this minisode of Tangential, your hosts figure out how to successfully podcast long-distance! In the spirit of Halloween, Niki and Jules break down America’s holiday hierarchy #spooky. Jules starts her own cinema corner, while Niki gives you an inside look into one of the most exciting upcoming Nintendo projects—Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. All this and more on the twelfth episode of Tangential.

    011 - Skinny Scarves Are Cool, Mo

    This week on Tangential, Niki and Jules contemplate a new theme song and as a result Niki breaks out his brand new ukulele. Are you still reading? Niki then mourns the future of the USMNT which perfectly segues into Jules recalling the most metal book of Homer’s Odyssey. In fact, the entirety of last week, Jules was on a literary kick. Probably because the prodigal daughter has returned to university and has spent the bulk of her time in the comfort of the English Reading Room. Don’t worry, Niki will surely keep you awake by dropping some sweet The Last Jedi exclusives.

    010 - Moving and Shaking

    On this week’s episode, Jules experiences an earthquake in real time while Niki flirts with the iPhone X because he’s a jet-setting, Gogo Wifi finessing, supermodel millionaire. Take the time to email us, people. We’re lonely.

    009 - Was Malcolm Even In The Middle?

    On the ninth episode of Tangential, Niki and Jules decided to celebrate NYFW by talking about their personal ~style icons of 2017!!~ Niki fanboys out about the highly anticipated release of Destiny 2 and Jules breaks down her obsession with Netflix’s megalomaniacal horse man. Jules proceeds to promenade down sitcom memory lane. First stop: Muniz. Is he alive? Did Cody Banks retire? Was Malcolm really in the middle? Yes. No. Maybe. I don’t know. Can you repeat the question?

    008 - We Are Never, Ever, Ever Saying Yes to the Dress. Like, Ever.

    Niki went back to college without Jules. It was really rude but we guess not every university willingly complies with the ridiculous, stress-inducing bullshit known as the quarter system. So what does this mean for you? How will you enjoy the (undisputed) voices of our generation each and every week if the owner’s of these voices aren’t even in the same county? Don’t worry. We. Got. You.

    On this minisode of Tangential, Niki and Jules discuss the most controversial, self-proclaimed invertebrate in America— Taylor Alison Swift (former friend of Abigail). For all you Pong and Tetris lovers, Niki talks about something called "PAX Wrestling", and Jules gets into some NCAA drama. All this and a little less than usual on Tangential’s first ever minisode!

    007 - Tangential Update: August 26, 2017

    Jules and Niki are heading off to school, so we're updating you on where the show will go while we're away! (Don't worry, it's not going far!)

    006 - Planes, Trains, and Queso...mobiles?

    Did you miss us? On the sixth episode of Tangential, Jules gives a long-winded apology for not recording an episode last week. (TLDL— she’s a trash human being.) Then, Niki channels his inner Diane Sawyer and gives us the distressing truth behind everyone's favorite trader, Joe. Want an Ebert-esque analysis on Chipotle's newest gimmick that will get customers to forget about e. coli? Of course you do. All this and more on the most wholesome (read: unwholesome) podcast to have graced Stitcher.

    005 - All Niki Ever Wanted Was to Go to Camp Rock

    On the fifth episode of Tangential, Niki and Jules attempt to introduce a political segment and show off their accent capacities. Additionally, Nicholas shares some hot takes on Broadway's flops and hits and Jules rolls her eyes accordingly. You can actually hear the eye rolling.

    004 - All Julianna Ever Wanted Was to Go to Camp Walden

    On the fourth episode of Tangential, Niki and Jules welcome a special guest, Nailah Hollis. Listen to the three "friends" have an almost-succinct chinwag discussing Dunkirk, Kid Cuisine, and an overwhelming amount of murder.

    Trigger Warning: The following podcast contains discussions about murder cases, rape, and kidnapping.

    003 - Huey, Dinklage, and Louie

    On this episode of Tangential, Niki and Jules delve into the flash computer games of their youth and give you a breakdown of the summer’s hottest blockbusters. The highly anticipated Season 7 premiere of HBO’s mega-hit, Game of Thrones, came out last Sunday—Niki regrettably opts to talk about Rachel Lindsay’s “Hometowns” episode instead.

    002 - The Dream of the 90's is Alive in Burbank

    Have you ever wondered what it'd be like if you got halfway through recording an episode of your new podcast before deciding to scrap it and start over? We were too, so we did that this week, and ended up talking about Jeff Bezos' Prime Day, record players, and Demi Moore, while skirting the boundaries of US Fair Use law. (pls don't sue, Lin)
