How Rude! The Full House Podcast

Lou Leonardo related to this week's episode of 'Full House' in a way he could have never expected, and the story he tells is truly one for the ages. Join us we discuss "Happy New Year", in which poor Joey is pressured to find a date and winds up "falling in love" with the first woman who happens to enjoy rollerblading. We were running on a low laptop charge this time around, so unfortunately the episode does wrap up pretty quickly. That said, we did discuss Lou's catch phrases after recording, and they were "Yahtzee!" and "At the end of the day ..." The former was from childhood and inspired by Lou's fun-loving Italian Uncle, and the latter is an adult's way of sorting through the bullshit so as to focus on what's important. You may have troubles, you may have woes, but at the end of the day, whaddya got? Ya got great friends like Lou! This is a fantastic episode. This is a fantastic podcast! Give a us a five star review, won't you? Happy New Year 1991! XOXO

Steven King has portrayed Jesus, lorded over his own Mother, and found himself in one of Hollywood's seedier corners after a particularly disastrous taping of 'Deal or No Deal'. We're gonna unpack all of that but today's main objective is a calm, rational discussion of "Danny in Charge", in which the Tanner patriarch totally drops the ball while Joey and Jesse are off fucking animals somewhere in the woods. It's a mash-up of forgettable plots that had us longing for the creative risks of "Secret Admirer", if that tells you anything. Thank you, Steven, for being our Rude Dude for the week, and may the Lord bless and keep you! XOXO

Molly Jones may be a little confused as to the chronology of the Austin Powers films but that doesn't mean we love her any less! Molly is a wonder and we were so happy to have her in the studio for this, a stirring discussion of 'Secret Admirer'. Rusty is back and he's determined to destroy the Tanner clan, this time by way of sexual confusion. But what Rusty could never predict ... is that he could fall in love in the process. Oh love, how you play with our minds! We shall learn all about Molly's lifetime infatuation with backwards caps and why Comet loves hamburgers, so kick back and relax, mate. It's time to start the show! P.S. NO AUDIO ISSUES! Oh God, I can breathe again. You have no idea how badly that was driving me (Jon) up a wall. Love you! XOXO

Chris Johnson is an adorable Gooby who has enough catch phrases to fill a large sack. He's simply the best! Join us as we wade through the muck and mire that is "Terror in Tanner Town", a bracing look at one little boy's descent into madness. Rusty isn't here for your comedy or your pot roast or your basic as fuck love. Rusty knows what makes this world move and it's chaos, baby. Pure, unbridled chaos. We'll also learn why a magic cat who controls the cast with marionette strings would make for a better viewing experience, as well as Brandon's history with the Playmobil corporation. Strap in and hold on to your hats because this shit is gonna get fantastic! XOXO

FAIR WARNING: The audio for this podcast includes a large amount of crackle, due to us possibly picking up some random feedback while recording. On the plus side, it has been filtered through GarageBand's Cool Jazz Combo setting, so said crackle isn't nearly as distracting as it was upon first detection. 

Our second marathon session means the return of a beloved Rude Dude and this time around it's none other than Kristin Ramsey! Kristin may have pulled a muscle in her back but she was bound and determined to watch three crummy episodes of 'Full House' for your amusement. Those three episodes: Viva Las Vegas (in which Joey opens for Wayne Newton), Shape Up (in which DJ stops eating for three days), and One Last Kiss (in which Jesse cheats on Becky). You ready for it? You ready for Party Teddy? Let's go! XOXO

You may think you've consumed all of your Halloween confectionary but look again! Peer into your spooky plastic pumpkin and I'm sure you'll find this, a delicious bit of podcasting for your oh so hungry ears. It's a supplemental episode this time around, which means your hosts are on their tummies once more to bring you their thoughts on an early John Stamos credit. 'Never Too Young to Die' is a fevered mash-up of the James Bond and Mad Max aesthetics, which means it makes little to no sense and features some of the worst music you're likely to find. That said, it does star Gene Simmons as a "bizarre" villain along with a thoroughly bummed George Lazenby, so there's definitely a few worthwhile elements. Wanna hear about Brandon's bachelor lifestyle? Wanna hear Jon's audition for the role of Ragnar in the forthcoming stage production of NTYTD? Then stop munching on those chocolate leftovers and start consuming a real treat!

Peter Kim is disgusted by parents who kiss their children on the mouth and that is just one of the many reasons why he fits right in with the Rude Dude crowd. Peter is on hand to help us dissect "A Pinch for a Pinch", in which Jesse's Mutually Assured Destruction theory of parenting leads to Michelle discovering a lust for petty violence. You cut me? I cut you. Two go in. NONE COME OUT. Speaking of coming out, Peter was a very sassy, very gay teenager who held his evangelical beliefs close to the chest, but you'll hear all about that soon enough. Peter is amazing. Start listening now! Also, stick around for a short addendum in which you'll hear all about our plans for the next episode as well as our forthcoming trip to NYC. That's right, the Rude Dudes are headed for the Big Red Apple, baby! XOXO

Liz Larrimore may have been a know-it-all as a child but she grew up to have the kind of discerning eye that can identify a douchebag. One such douchebag: Dave Coulier, who "performed" for her college freshman orientation. Liz sat down with us to discuss Mr. Coulier as well as "Good News, Bad News", another episode in which Kimmy and DJ work together and everyone else suffers as a result. On a similar note, Becky and Danny co-host a terrible TV show and no amount of rebranding is going to change that. Do you notice the audio ping-pong tick-tack? Look, we've invested in a new mic and it shouldn't be a problem in the future. Can you not spare a bit of mercy for your favorite Rude Dudes? Must you be such harsh masters, my lords? Love you! XOXO

WARNING: This episode features a fair amount of hammering in the background (not a ton but a fair amount) and there's a bit of audio clickety-clack as well (but again, just a bit, so stay calm). With that said, please welcome our latest honorary Rude Dude, Carlos Luna! Aside from having a fantastic surname, Carlos is an avid fan of the sitcom and has many a theory about the world in which the characters live. Join us as we JFK the shit out of "Slumber Party", in which a bunch of horrible little girls and their mothers refuse to consider anyone who may not have a mother. Seriously, fuck the Honeybees and their bullshit mind games, some kids don't have a Mom! There's a lot of storytelling clutter on the side, including Jesse's makeover for Michelle and a boring as fuck yard sale, but we'll unpack all of that. We'll also unpack Carlos' latchkey kid status and his time as a Blockbuster thief, so strap in, kids! XOXO
