Sunnyside Podcast Show

Sunnyside Podcast Show

Every week, PJ, Scott and Ron will regale you with what's being going on in their lives, as they chat about family life, the movies, politics, mental health, social issues and the apparent difficulty in supplying an adequate stool sample. Whether we're dealing with the thorny subject of what we'd like our funerals to be like, doing a deep dive into living in a cult or attempting to solve racism in Northern Ireland, you can be sure we'll find a way to approach the subject with gusto!

    Mostly Balls

    We're dry this week. So we just winged it and, what do you know, we still came up with some AWARD NOMINATED content for you. School days. Chinos. Bodily... dryness. We've got it all.

    We're back after a week off (cough Ron cough) and PJ has been to New York for NYCC. We chat about A Matter of Life & Death because Scott can't stick to the plan, and realise that it should defnitely have been a Classic.

  23. Thumb 1538698260 artwork

    Egg Banjo

    Gah, another late night upload. Never fear, I've some details. This week we talk about our weight loss progress, our Classic - The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp - and we also chat about perceptions of race, because that's what everyone wants to hear 3 tragically white guys talk about.

  24. Thumb 1538094941 artwork

    Oh Mandy!

    Not much in the way of show notes this week (Ron made the grave error of sending PJ a blank audio file to review, and then promptly forgot what night it was, nearly forgetting to upload this at all), but we do chat about travelling, more parental worries, the Nic Cage 'movie' Mandy, and a few other bits and pieces.

  25. Thumb 1537484310 artwork

    The Body Wants What It Wants

    Bit of a longer one this week. ANOTHER NEW FEATURE! We're all three of us trying to lose weight, so why not have a long discussion about our self-image and also how we're going about trying to shift the pounds. Then we chat about The Deer Hunter for a bit. But really, it's mostly body talk.

  29. Thumb 1535064621 artwork


    We mostly just listen to PJ reading from his diary, which leads us down a rabbit hole of intersecting anecdotes. You'd think this show could have some sort of a central theme, but it's rapidly becoming clear it doesn't.

  30. Thumb 1534454679 artwork

    Full Muppet Jacket

    A palate cleanser, if you will. We chat about our times on the stage, and have a wonderful volley of media chats that segueway beautifully from one topic to the next. Classic chat is Harvey (1950) and as usual some Picks of the Week.

  31. Thumb 1533850414 artwork

    He Ain't Heavy

    We got heavy this week, with chat about mental health and the trials of raising a kid with autism. Goes without saying, but if you need to chat to anyone about these issues, we're probably the last people you should talk to! But there are a couple of good links in the show notes who are far more qualified. Look after yourselves.

  32. Thumb 1533249345 artwork

    Oh, and Ron knows he got it wrong when he said it was Universal who were releasing the Godzilla movie. He KNOWS it. Don't @ him. Please.


  34. Thumb 1532005914 artwork

    Hot Women Whispering

    Ron and Scott explain ASMR to a cynical PJ, who thinks it's best applied for screaming at unsuspecting listeners. PJ explains his Friday Fix-Up project, and as usual there's a Pick of the Week. Also, a new feature, with the obligatory custom Ron theme music.

    Big Submarine Ones

    Oh boy. This week we go hard, as the rappers say. Ron's fallen deep into the well of Batman Animated Figures. The team outline their most solemn medical experiences, and we discus the recent release of Solo: A Star Wars Story.
