This week the guys travel from Oxford, England to the trash cans of the rich and famous! After a horrendous week of setbacks, the IP crew finally got together long-distance to talk about the new Twilight Zone show and regale the saga of Britains favorite shark!
In this special preview episode of the Patreon-exclusive bonus show, Internet Picnic: Offline, the guys look at the Internet's past and future – exploring their embarrassing Myspace pages, venturing into the heated battles of #BagelGate, and visiting the online garbage market that is Wish.com.

This week, an age-old question is finally answered... What did Cliff's Myspace page look like? Oh, and we talk about Jack the Ripper, too. Plus: A huge announcement, Batman's birthday, Brad's Walking Dead review, and more!
Kenny Biddle used to believe in ghosts. Now he's a skeptic, traveling the country investigating paranormal claims through the lens of science and writing about his findings online – and this week he's in the Internet Picnic studio! Join the guys for an in-depth chat about Kenny's work and what made him turn from believer to skeptic.
This week the guys are LIVE from the floor of NC Comicon: Raleigh 2019! They sat down during a packed weekend of panels and geekery to talk James Gunn's rehiring to the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, Nic Cage's most iconic roles, and Nathan Pyle's Strange Planet webcomic.
Internet Picnic is back! At last the new season you've all been waiting for has arrived... Well, the one without dragons anyway. This week the guys talk about Alex Trebek's heartbreaking announcement on Jeopardy, a Star Wars heist unlike any the galaxy has ever seen, and what happens when a million bloodthirsty bats are unleashed on Austin, Texas. Yeah, really.
This is it: The episode people will point to for the next twenty years and say, "Gah, remember when Internet Picnic was good?!" And the masses will answer, "No..." Nonetheless! This week the guys talk about art criticism through the horn-rimmed lenses of one of the greatest (or most disappointing, depending on who you ask) bands of all time: Weezer! Plus: Brad tells a story about how Netflix's NARCOS has invaded his wife's brain, and Cliff announces a brief Internet Picnic hiatus.
This week, Cliff actually watched something! A review of The Haunting of Hill House leads to a discussion of Netflix, Bandersnatch, and the future of storytelling in the streaming age. Plus: Did Netflix steal our Space Force idea?! (Spoilers: Probably not.) Other topics include M. Night Shyamalan puns and Carl Jung's The Red Book (yes, really).
This week the guys talk funny about talkin' funny! They dive into discussion on the craft of crackin' jokes -- including their favorite comedians, bits, the power of comedy and whether or not stand-up is in a new golden age.
This week the guys go into the fray once more as they take you back to NC Comicon: Bull City 2018 with this exclusive panel! Ever wondered how comics get made – or wanted to make them yourself?
