Hello and welcome to Culturally Irrelevant! The podcast where four college friends share and discuss the unseen, unplayed, unread, and all around overlooked in movies, video games, comic books, and whatever else their nerdy minds can think up.
Before we start our audio journey... let's take it back to the very beginning.
Less than a week ago Dane, the host, was visiting his old college town in southern Minnesota. He and the other cogs in this machine, Tyler, Ben, and Josh, were sitting around talking nerdy per usual. Eventually they got on the topic of podcasts and how they've all had a desire to start one, which quickly led to discussing what they would do if they had one of their own.
What happened next was a slippery slope of events that brought them here today.
Within the latter half of that day they had their title card photoshoot and the website's first draft drawn up. Less than 24 hours later the pilot episode was recorded. All done quickly but done right since Dane had to drive back to WI the next day.
The first episode will be roughly an hour long and will exclusively discuss the recent Best Picture winner, Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance.) This format will not be the standard, but a good, improvised format they thought would get the show off an running.
From here on out everyone will bring their own item that is considered overlook, underappreciated, or off the beaten path. These items will range from something like Birdman, which was heard of but few have seen, to the far more obscure where none of the co-hosts have heard of it outside of the presenter.
In order to keep the surprise and spark of conversation alive no one will share their item with the co-hosts until time of recording.
But we don't want to leave the audience entirely in the dark. With each episode we will provide hints in the description of what to expect, and occasionally have themed episodes as well as special episodes reminiscent of our pilot where we discussed one topic for the whole hour.
