Hosts Brad Hennigan and Cliff Bumgardner are your digital guides to all things Internet, geek, and pop-culture on this podcast which their moms call, “Pretty funny, if you’re into that sort of thing.”
This week the guys do something a little different as they play an incredibly hard movie challenge! A random web generator names an actor, and we have to go back and forth naming movies that actor has been in. Get one wrong or hesitate and you're out! It's way harder (and more interesting to listen to) than it sounds, promise.
Special thanks to the Picnic Posse who make the show possible via their support on Patreon. If you want to help us in our quest to make the Internet a little bit funnier, go to Patreon.com/InternetPicnic

It's all NEWS to us as this week the guys sit down to talk about what's been happening in a huge week for pop-culture, including Robert Pattinson's casting as Batman (and who should play his villains), the series finale of Game of Thrones, and the passing of the Internet's favorite feline: Grumpy Cat.
This week the guys take a one-way trip to Spoiler Town as they talk Avengers: Endgame, recapping their favorite moments, the best scenes, and more! Who lives, who dies, who tells your story...
