Plumbing the Death Star

Plumbing the Death Star

United Kingdom

In which we ask the important questions in pop culture and dissect fictional universes. Because seriously, who deals with super weapon sanitation and imperial employee agreements? If you’re looking for serious discussions, this isn't the podcast you're looking for and we are so sorry about that joke. New episode every Monday!

How Would You Survive in Skyrim if You Weren't the Main Character? (Feat. Adam)  

In which our heroes stop eating souls, give the finger to the Greybeards, and become an NPC as we ask the important questions like how would you survive in Skyrim as not the main character. We talk about the invulnerability of beggars, take refuge in a dress shop, and die anyway as Alduin eats the world. Adam hitches himself to the main character, Jackson chooses poorly every time, and Zammit just asks a lot of questions. So find the least occupied corner of Skyrim, hunker down, and do your very best not to get caught up in someone else’s destiny. It's harder than it sounds.

How Would You Survive in Skyrim? (Feat. Adam)  

In which our heroes embrace their draconic heritage, kill a dragon with a great axe, and then drink to absorb its delicious soul as we ask how would you survive Skyrim? We try to avoid our heroic destiny, put all our skill points into sneak and archery, and exploit the system to make ourselves very powerful. Jackson outright refuses to do good, Adam makes a potion to improve his smithing and smiths a dagger to improve his potions, and Zammit just wants to sit the main villain down and share a sneaky beer. So sit back and enjoy the ballad of Jackson, Zammit and Adam, who solved a lot of problems but then went into hiding because they couldn’t be bothered solving any more.

What Did We Think of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? (feat. Adam and Ryder)  

In which our heroes really do not want to stay up later than they absolutely have to so they're doing all this as fast as they can. Jackson has issues with the ending, Joel will have to do all the editing, Adam downs half a bottle of schnapps and Ryder just fucking loved those Beasts.

What Do We Think Is Going To Happen In Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? (Feat. Adam)  

In which our heroes wonder what is going to happen in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them? We usually write longer ones but we're running late for our movie. LOOTCRATE! Shit. Gotta spruik that! lootcrate.com/letmedie. Perfect. Got it one! And as always you can follow along on twitter with #letmedie. We did it boys!

If Australia Had a Wizarding School How Would it Function? (Feat. Adam)  

In which our heroes grab a wand, throw on a cloak and head into their own backyard as they ask if Australia were to have a Wizarding School, how would it function? Join the two Plumbing boys who aren't Duscher and special guest Adam as they explore how being a wizard but also hot would work, give themselves horrific but also appropriate magic names and ignore winter. Jackson has the hiccups, Adam never watches football and Zammit is just sick of having his lack of knowledge exposed. It's a magical, but uniquely Australian time where those without magic are definitely, 100% officially called muggos. Just ask JK. Want to help us build the Wattlebush Academy?

Which Fictional Universe Has the Worst Moral Message? (Feat. Follow)  

In which our heroes consume all of pop culture, sit alone in their rooms and then use this knowledge to make real life decisions while asking Which Fictional Universe Has the Worst Moral Message? Join the Plumbing boys as they battle through constant interruptions from Zoe taking selfies, constant interruptions from Adam sneezing and constant interruptions from Follow (may he rest in peace) knocking everything off our recording desk. Jackson reveals how close to anime he can get without getting a blood nose, Zammit is angry we wasted money on sending a man to space and Duscher just wants to make everyone get out their phones literally the moment the episode starts. Today's episode is a real exercise in professionalism and we bloody nail it, so let's have a moment of silence to celebrate the unwavering motivation of the boys. We did it.

Cars What?!  

In which our heroes rev their engines, lick their lips, and melt their brains in confusion and fear as we ask Cars! What? We try to explain cars as bugs, attempt to explain the Car Pope, and try to comprehend the logistics of hollowing out a plane. Zammit goes into too much detail about Car Hitler, Jackson thinks cars bone like wolves, and Duscher just doesn’t want anyone to worry. So go to the infosphere to get your career, milk a tractor for its mystery milk, and grow a baby car in your trunk. Its a confusing, terrifying world, and we come to basically no conclusions. Help.

Which Fictional Universe Offers the Worst Education? LIVE from Sydney!  

In which our heroes drove for 9 hours, checked into an Air B&B from hell and did a live show in Sydney while asking which fictional Universe Has the worst education system? It's a wild ride where the boys discuss the logistics of an education solely by booping, investigate school ruses within ruses and just wish Jackson would stop publicly supporting genocide. Zammit can't figure out if Cyclops is alive or dead, Duscher doesn't want to shoot his dog and Jackson just can't help himself. Brace yourselves as the boys realise that no such thing as a perfect education, while almost simultaneously realising that nothing will ever stop Jackson's burping rampage. Nothing.

What Do the Public Know About the Avengers Initiative? (Feat. Mr SundayMovies)  

In which our heroes look out their windows, see a whole lot of super heroics occurring, but struggle to make out terribly much as we ask what does the general public know about the Avengers? We confuse Thor with a Buff Nan, spend most of the time hiding under things, and lose count of how many Iron Men there are. James wants to move to the country, Duscher recalls the day the Hulks came, Zammit intends to give his children powers at whatever the cost, and Jackson just tries to describe the events of Avengers to the rest of the gang as they hide under a car. So prepare yourself for another confusing super hero event, do your best to make out whats going on amidst the colour and light, and then call your insurance company about the Hulk. Hopefully they can do something about whats going on. Want to help us afford Hulk insurance?

If You Were a Superman Villain What Would Your Gimmick Be? (Feat. Mr SundayMovies)  

In which our heroes pick up a comic, flick through the pages and decide to give this Superman fella the business while asking if we were a Superman villain, what would our gimmick be? Straight off the bat we discuss evil wizards, the keys to hassling Superman and the in and outs of Lex Luthor's land deals. Jackson has a complex plan to put Superman back in a TV, Zammit remembers that the Irredeemable comic is super good, Duscher tries to argue the logistics of a sentient tornado and James just wants everyone to remember that Pa Kent is a bad bloke. Join us as we all realise very quickly why Superman villains are all the same and if there is one take away lesson from today's episode it's that you should never trust a dog.

Which One of the Plumbing Boys Would Best Be Consumed by the Symbiote?  

In which our heroes fuse with an alien, become a goo monster, and give Spiderman the business as we ask which Plumbing Boy would make the best symbiote? We wonder why Spiderman doesn’t just carry a bell with him at all times, try to figure out which symbiotes are alive and cops, and explain hospices. Zammit struggles to find a crime worth eating someone for, Duscher learns how to smell the dying, and Jackson just flips the script and ruins the symbiotes life. So get in touch with your dark side, learn to eat human beings, and then eventually go to space. Also watch Roseanne. Want to help put a dvd copy of Roseanne season 1 in every house?

How Hard is it to Grow up in the Pokémon Universe? (Feat. Mr Sunday Movies)  

In which our heroes turn ten, get a magic animal from a professor, and leave home forever as they ask how do people grow up in the Pokémon world? We discuss gym economy, shake our heads at islands only available by swimming, and catch god. Jackson’s favourite pokémon is 165 souls, Zammit keeps calling a machop a machomp, Duscher elaborates on the Pokemon War, and James just can’t deal with any of it. So open your pokédex, aim it directly at the embodiment of time, and have an uncomfortable religious awakening. Gotta catch em all! And by them we sometimes mean deities.

How Would You Survive in a Fantasy World? (Feat. Adam)

We estimate how many adventurers there are in the world, leave the township of Thrupence to found the town of Fourpence and make a chaotic neutral rogue our sheriff.

What Alignment is a Baby? (Feat. Adam)  

In which our heroes try and figure out right from wrong, try to understand the difference between lawful and chaotic and if some things can be born evil while wondering what alignment is a baby. We look at dragons being jerks from birth, see what can change alignment and realise D&D doesn’t cover mental illness. Adam is our resident expert, Zammit attempts to work out when murder is okay and Jackson just wants to build the perfect utopia. It ranges on the morality spectrum as we work out just how long it takes to gain an alignment in Dungeons and Dragons. Want to help identify who is a jerk and who isn’t?

How Does a Centaur Work? (Feat. Adam)  

In which our heroes attempt true beauty, combine man with horse and gallop off into the sunset as we ask how can a centaur possibly work. We solve the question two minutes in, get disgusted about horse/centaur births and create an 'us versus them' dichotomy in a medieval society almost instantaneously. Jackson assumes the man part is all muscle, Adam gets onto his knees to get into the headspace of a centaur and Zammit just wants to know how they pick stuff up off the ground. So join the gang as they combine with beast to truely understand the majesty of nature. Want to learn about giraffes today?

How Entertaining Would the Hunger Games be to Watch?  

In which our heroes get chosen as tributes, enter the games, and then start a revolution as we ask would the Hunger Games be entertaining? We discuss other forms of entertainment in the Capitol, laugh at Peeta’s rock throwing abilities, and do the Katniss whistle. Duscher knows the names of all the character, Zammit has a learning experience, and Jackson just falls asleep in the lake but doesn’t drown. So set off the canons, watch the games at gunpoint, and bleed out of your mouth a little. Viva la boring revolution. Want to keep Jackson full of ham?

How Would You Use the Suicide Squad? (Feat. Mr Sunday Movies)  

In which our heroes worry about an evil superman, gather the worst of the worst, and get them to do our dirty work as we ask: what would you do with the Suicide Squad. We calculate Harley’s age, describe South American geography, and talk some shit about Twister. Zammit makes the Suicide Squad mow lawns, Duscher over-explains nearly everything, James valiantly defends the film, and Jackson just wants to send the Skwad into lava. So get some bombs in your necks, weep for economically destroyed Australia, and think of a better use for the Suicide Squad then dying when Superman punches their brains out.

How Would You Survive A Groundhog Day?  

In which our heroes are a rude journalist, go to a small snowy town, and piss off a magic groundhog as we ask the question how would you survive a Groundhog Day. We discuss the different ways to eat a nan, wonder why Bill Murray didn't become an inhuman monster, and inevitably turn to cannibalism. Zammit attempts to sleep with an entire town, Jackson does terrible things to his genitals, and Duscher just wants to get nuked. It's an infinite nightmare that doesn't end until Groundhog tells Mrs Groundhog he's sorry for being a dickhead. Want to help Jackson learn how to build a blimp quickly?

Why Does the Toothfairy Collect Teeth?  

In which our heroes present bloody molars to their parents, get a good night of sleep and awake to gold coins while questioning why the Tooth Fairy collects teeth. Join us as we encounter humanity’s magical foes, politely ask them not to kill our kids and find ourselves in a succession of conflicts with the Fey/Fay/Fae. Jackson contemplates the applications of a tooth stockpile, Zammit tries to negotiate a fair peace treaty and Duscher just wants to satisfyingly deliver film synopses. Prepare yourself for the War of Teeth as we draw back the curtain on a (disg)race of creatures hiding under the guise of a single entity to rob us of precious enamel. Well, scrap enamel. And in exchange for gold. And under the cover of darkness, presumably out of fear. Hmm. We may be the bad guys here. Troubling. Want to help ignite the war of teeth? Head to http://www.patreon.com/sanspantsradio and for as little as $1 a month, we can finally get those fairy bastards.
