Ben, Matt, Daniel, Koby




Award Show



Great Season 2 summary.


0:11 Ben leaves Daniel and Koby out of the intro

2:50 Everybody that listens knows that Ben De Bono has always kind of been kind of the brains behind the technology here at The Sci-Fi Christian. Well, just 'the brains behind The Sci-Fi Christian'.

Matt prepared envelopes with the award winners. But he didn't seal them because he hates licking envelopes.

27:58 Let's go to the next category, which is Awkward Moment of the Year. But! This actually tied with Funniest Moment of the Year. These were all write-in votes. So, Koby, I think you're up, which, this is actually perfect for Awkward Moment.
35:25 Daniel reads the nominees for the "Lack of Follow Through" award Number 2: Matt's promise that he would have guest hosts during 2012. Well, he had you two.
36:24 Ben reads Koby's bio from the website 'Koby Radcliffe is known for two loves in life, cats (and cat accessories) and an undying dediction to the John Carter franchise. When not balling string or darning socks, Koby often enjoys knitting, playing bridge and re-reading the Twilight saga. Koby attends seminary at Bethel University.' Bethel probably wants you to take that last part off.
37:45 Ben says he might restart the Game of Thrones video reviews since they were the most requested thing they didn't do in 2012. Maybe I'll take it over with my own cohost. Yeah, you should do that. I'd be totally fine with that. Hey, guess what? You should start your own podcast and never come back. Oh, guess what? ...I got nothin'.

Matt says 2013 will be the Year of the Guest Host.

Francisco Ruiz does the second Reject or Resurrect on The Fifth Element. It's a resurrect.

56:08 Alright, who's up for the next opening? It's me. You? OK, perfect again: Worst Episode!

Koby and Ben think Matt should stop doing time loops.

1:06:14 Matt and Koby read from Facebook Koby and Daniel's debate: Is Batman a superhero?

1:06:28 Koby reads his own comments on Facebook Do you consider Iron Man a superhero? I do and here's why: I do not consider Tony Stark a superhero, but I do Iron Man. I need to separate Iron Man...I need to separate...why, my comments don't make any sense!
1:15:44 I just have one question, Ben: why is Daniel not taking your spot more than me? I don't say anything (usually) of relevance.

Max and Mike are now lead writers.

1:45:00 Daniel and Koby, The Sci-Fi Christian may have died without you two, so thank you for being here for me. Take that, Ben. You take a nice moment, man, a nice moment... You're the equivalent of life support as opposed to good, natural breathing.
