Nothing But Static's Dan and Chris are embarking on a weekly trip into the world of Steven Universe.

Each week Dan will attempt to educate Chris by making him watch an episode and then discuss it for your amusement. Welcome to Steven University.
 
Remember the cartoons you loved as a kid? Do you, like us, remember mid-2000s Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network with a mix of fondness and terror – or, if you don’t, do you want to know what the fuss was about? Join Mary, David, and Ben as we revisit the cartoons that shaped us in an episode-by-episode deep dive, as well as the Internet fan culture as it was then and is now. How do these nostalgic shows hold up? What do we think of them now, as not kids but sad adults? How has the zeitgeist an ...
 
Very few things have been as influential on modern comedy as Adult Swim. Join your hosts Matthew Jay and Steve Yurko as they find out why by going all the way back to the very beginning to discuss every single show ever aired on the network year by year, season by season.

We've reached the midpoint of season two, and with that, the midpoint of the whole show! This is a good time for us to take a little break from internet radio silliness (more on that in the episode), but first, here's Mary, David, and Jess talking owls and Kongsonas (also in the episode, obviously). === As mentioned above, Super Nuclear Group will …
 
I'm super sorry for the lateness of putting this on the main feed - I hadn't realized I hadn't scheduled it while I was waiting for the summary to come in. Thank you for your patience and look forward to The Library soon! === Welcome to Bitter Work (fun fact: that's what "kung fu" actually means!), an episode that's mostly about Sokka being stuck i…
 
Ah, the chase: a cartoon tradition. Tom chases Jerry, Sylvester chases Tweety, and in tonight's presentation, the Gaang is chased by a bunch of girls. Which I guess makes this more like the Avatar version of A Hard Day's Night (ask your grandma, zoomer). Our friend Gabe is here to bring the funny while Ben is away. Join us as we discuss such questi…
 
Time for Zuko Alone, Avatar's cowboy episode! In lieu of Ben, we're joined once again by Quinn! (And no, we didn't eat Ben when we were all stranded on that raft in the middle of the ocean, no matter what the federales say.) Prepare for advanced Jaden Smith discussion, stinky piles o' poo, and the startling revelation that in the Avatar universe, b…
 
It's finally time for the episode everyone and their dog wanted to be on. Wait a minute... is CatDog an Avatar animal? Holy shit, I just thought of that literally right now. Nickelodeon Cinematic Universe confirmed! Anyway, Toph is in this one. Our friend (and very first fan!) Dianna joins us to talk about Toph and why she's an excellent example of…
 
Hey... u up, winky face emoji? It's the horniest-ever episode of The Avatar Recycle, featuring Avatar Kyoshi and her enormous feet! The fandom has long called Avatar Day one of the worst episodes of the show, second only to The Great Divide. But is it really as bad as all that? Join the usual gang of idiots (plus Jess!) as we investigate! Enjoy suc…
 
Welcome back to The Avatar Recycle! Jess joins us yet again as we venture into fantasy Florida to meet some more smelly hippies and Toph, who is presumably also smelly. Topics include cholera, a five-pound bag of Swedish Fish, man's ever-evolving quest to communicate with spinach, and the time Jess's dad found a dead body and poked it with a stick.…
 
In this episode, the still-incomplete Gaang literally rolls around in raw sewage. (You can do that figuratively by listening to our podcast.) And on that note, who's ready for a lot of jokes about plagues and contagion? Like, jeez, read the room, 2006. Am I right? This episode also introduces us to Mai and Ty Lee, and just the many many ways Azula …
 
In this episode, we have two special treats for you: a new guest (welcome, Sigma!) and a link to a cool picture of a dragon we found on DeviantArt. Also? A SPECTACULAR episode. Let's call that treat number three. So many things that give us joy are here. Unwashed hippies. Unsupervised uncles. Unrestrained summer (spring) fun. Unwieldy teenage kissi…
 
It's another episode of The Avatar Recycle! Our hosts have managed to tear themselves away from the ongoing collapse of civilization to babble about magic cartoon teenagers for another couple of hours. This time, it's The Avatar State! Where is it, and why doesn't it have representation in Congress? We're introduced to Azula, who is still an incred…
 
It's the first season break, and you know what that means: statistics (oh boy)! Join us as we once again consider the SNA, read some Avatar comics, and talk about Shrek. Jess is here, so you know this one's a keeper. === Click here to see the pacu, the herbivorous piranha! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pacu Click here for Avatar The Last Airbender:…
 
It's the season one finale, and Avatar has officially come into its own, like a caterpillar tadpole coming out of its cocoon as a beautiful butterfrog. That's good news, provided that you like hearing three ostensible adults freak out about cartoons. We cover all the bases: Zuko's gradual de-villainization, Ben realizing that the Undertale meme ske…
 
Good news, everyone! We heard your complaint about there not being enough year-end holidays and have magnanimously decided that December 8th is Super Nuclear Day. You may curry favor with our traditional mascots, the Super Alpaca and Gnuclear Gnome, by supporting us on Patreon. Good fortune is sure to follow. In this episode, Katara does some badas…
 
Apologies for the wait, everyone! Moving and life got in the way but we are BACK! Welcome back to The Avatar Recycle, the show where we talk about our cats and then, if we have time, Avatar. In this episode, Mary moves down the street, Ben moves across the country, and David stays right the fuck where he is, because in an ever-changing world, it's …
 
Donald Trump slowly shrinks and transforms into a corn cob. Ben's mother humiliates him in front of the host of Nickelodeon's Slime Time Live. David crushes his own mother's dreams of being a showbiz mom. Mary roasts her dad's exceptionally dadly qualities. And on Avatar, some kid has to cope with the fact that his dad is in bed with the fantasy re…
 
We have a very special Halloween treat on the podcast as we present the in-house Cartoon Network audio commentary with Larry Morris, Casper Kelly, Ashley Kohler, and Steve Patrick recorded back in 2000. Larry Morris was kind enough to share this rare gem with the show which features a neat peek into the past with the creators invlved with putting t…
 
Happy Halloween, everyone! On this installment of the podcast I am very excited to be welcoming Ashley Kohler and returning friend-of-the-show, Casper Kelly, on to the podcast to talk about another classic Cartoon Network Scooby parody, Night of the Living Doo, as well as some great stories and remembrances of their time working at the studio!! Nig…
 
This time it is David who will not be with us for this one, and Jess who will rise to the occasion and take his place as we take on a SURPRISINGLY intense ATLA episode! All the more so for Mary, because she never saw it the first time round. What does that mean for you all? A whole lot of well deserved slamming on Heart of Darkness, the secrets of …
 
On this edition of APNSD! Extra I have the distinct pleasure of presenting five different versions of the theme song for the latest iteration of the franchise, Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?, from original demo to the final version that appears before every episode of the series. Also, as an added bonus, I am welcoming to the podcast a very special gues…
 
This episode is all about trust, in the sense that it betrayed ours by being kinda crappy and on-the-nose, as well as having uncomfortable sexual undertones. And speaking of that, watch us revive old Homestuck memes you hoped to never see again! (At least Sokka gets to be smart in this one.) The Super Nuclear Group would also like to remind our fel…
 
On this installment of the podcast, the conclusion to my conversation with David Poe and Vivek Maddala! The two musicians join me as we continue to take a deep dive into the crafting of the theme song for the latest iteration of the Mystery Gang, Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?, and taking a digression or two along the way. Music: "Confessions" and "Haun…
 
This is one of those cartoon episodes that tries to be about faith vs. empiricism, but in a way that doesn't piss off any homeschool moms and/or the ACLU. Surprisingly, it doesn't suck, and in fact taught us a very valuable lesson. It taught us what platypuses eat. (It's pebbles and small mollusks, apparently.) Join us as we discuss our favorite fl…
 
On this installment of the podcast, I sit down for a quick conversation with the talented and darkly comic, Maxwell Atoms. Max is the writer, director, and producer of, Happy Halloween, Scooby-Doo!, the latest direct-to-video Scooby-Doo movie, and shares a few of his behind-the-scenes experiences of putting this project together. Music: "Look at Us…
 
David Poe and Vivek Maddala join me on the podcast to have a fun and meandering chat about music, Saturday morning cartoons, and crafting the theme song for the latest iteration of the Mystery Gang, Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? Music: "Joy" (David Poe) "Ball of Fire (Excerpt)" (Vivek Maddala) Like us on Facebook Subscribe for free on Apple Podcasts Ch…
 
In this episode, the role of Ben is played by our good friend Jess, but don't worry, we're definitely not classing up the joint! Much merriment is had discussing the rare and elusive Sugondese frogs. (Would you suck on them? Tell us in the comments!) We also discover that the crazy old people of the Avatar universe are a lot less racist than ours. …
 
This episode involves Aang and Iroh telling heartbreaking stories of past trauma whilst they and their friends huddle around a campfire. Celebrate the occasion by listening to three nerds talk about My Big Fat Greek Wedding whilst hunched over their computers. Be warned: this episode contains more vagina references and discussion than the average S…
 
Ah yes, here we are. One of the Famously Bad episodes of Avatar, which means it would be a low average in any other show. Even as we try not to judge it by its reputation and/or memes, we still find it... condescending? A bit tone deaf? Paints centrists as the real victims? We're not quite sure what they're actually trying to say here. But it's oka…
 
First and foremost I have to deeply DEEPLY apologize for the lateness of this episode, I had it and it was up on Patreon and I just straight up forgot to put it on the main feed. ._. Thank you all for your patience! === Welcome to the Secret Tunnel, the Rec Room-alike where we take a break from painstakingly recapping a show in order to talk about …
