Welcome!

This is the website for Chatz: A Television Podcast, a slow-binge, first-watch TV podcast hosted by two best friends who just want to hang out every week. We hope you decide to hang out with us too!

The Seasons!

Rather than restrict ourselves to one show or genre, we like to mix it up to experience a variety of TV's cult-classic offerings. You can scroll through the list below to see the show's we've covered!

1/1

Season 12 -
PeaksChatz (A Twin Peaks Podcast)

That cult classic TV show you like has come back in style in this season of Chatz! Your hosts return to Twin Peaks for an overdue re-watch, followed by a return to Twin Peaks: The Return with help from their friend Ryan.

Season 11 - MiniseriesChatz Volume II

In our second season of miniseries coverage, the ChatzKidz enlist the help of longtime friend Omens to watch Vanity Fair, and then explore two shows that examine pandemics from very different tonal points of view: Angels in America and The Stand.

Season 10 - SunsetChatz (A Studio 60 Podcast)

Start the countdown clock as Allen and Magellan enlist the help of Six Dettmar to dive once more into the Sorkin-verse! We examine his relationship history, problems with Big Media, and...unique take on sketch comedy.

Season 09 - Better Off Chatz (A Better Off Ted Podcast)

The business world makes its way to Chatz! Join Allen, Magellan, and several of their friends for discussions about office antics, 2009 romance plots, capitalism and the fascinating sci-fi underpinnings of this cult classic series.

You can listen to the first episode here.

 

Season 08C - ChatzAdams (A John Adams Podcast)

The ChatzKidz take a look at another part of American history...white men! While the subjects of this HBO drama have been discussed to death, nobody can deny the incredible performances of Giamatti and Linney at its core.

 

You can listen to the first episode here. 

Season 08B - RootsChatz (A Roots Podcast)

Continuing the academic tone of Chatz: Summer School, we watch the 1970s miniseries event, Roots (as well as it's sequel, Roots: The Next Generations and its 2016 remake). Join us as we learn, critique, and grow.

Season 08A - Chatz & Prejudice (A Pride & Prejudice Podcast)

In our eighth season, we mix up the typical Chatz formula and do a multi-series sequence informally known as Chatz: Summer School, where we watch three historical or literary miniseries. Firth up, Pride & Prejudice!

 

You can listen to the first episode here. 

Season 07 - PrisonerChatz (A Prisoner Podcast)

Swing back to the groovy, classy, nuclear-war-anxious 1960s with the series that's a spy show but actually a socio-political manifesto but actually an entertainment memoir but actually a slapstick comedy, The Prisoner.

 

You can listen to the first episode here. 

Season 06 - Chatzylon 5 (A Babylon 5 Podcast)

Chatzylon 5 took us to a neutral space station in the middle of nowhere to debate philosophy, religion, science, existentialism, and the encroaching threat of fascism. Someday, we will find our dancing shoes...

 

You can listen to the first episode here. 

Season 05 - DaisyChatz (A Pushing Daisies Podcast)

Romance, fantasy, mystery, and pie abound in DaisyChatz, where we wax poetic about this oft-forgotten gem of a series. Whether you love love, or technicolor noir, or just gifs of Lee Pace smirking, this is the show for you.

 

You can listen to the first episode here. 

Season 04 - The ChatzRoom (A Newsroom Podcast)

The first Chatz show that we love to hate and hate to love, Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom is a beautiful mess of good intentions and ivory tower miopia. Ultimately, we can fold our arms and say: we did the podcast.

 

You can listen to the first episode here. 

Season 03 - The Last ChatzBender (An Avatar Podcast)

Our first foray into animated television, the ChatzKidz tackle the classic story of a boy with elemental magic powers who overcomes a painful past to save the world and win Katara's heart. (We're all talking about Zuko, right?)

 

You can listen to the first episode here. 

Season 02 - FreaksChatz (A Freaks & Geeks Podcast)

The ChatzKidz take a trip down memory lane with the help of cult-classic Freaks & Geeks, baring their geeky bona fides and sharing their thoughts on rock n' roll, drugs n' alcohol, dungeons n' dragons, and academic decathlon.

 

You can listen to the first episode here. 

Season 01 - ScapeChatz (A Farscape Podcast)

In our flagship season, The ChatzKidz eat pizza, make friends with a puppet, buy better microphones, and watch Farscape. To this day, it remains one of the shows closest to our hearts. If you haven't seen it yet - what the frell!
