Fear Solve This #2

Seal vs. Tippi Hedren

Since Fear The Walking Dead started back up this past weekend, it only makes sense to touch bases with the European spinoff of everyone’s favorite problem solving panel show. That’s right, Aaron Fever returns with Fear Solve This.

In the captain’s chair is Aaron and he welcomes guests Kevin Handy, Neil O’Rourke, Jessica Keith and Jay Petrone. Collectively they do battle with problems large, small and mildly silly ranging from cold (or not) weather to hot yoga. Also, advice on where to hide your nuclear codes.

Okay, yes, it’s a second series.

    Solve This: Episode 1.4

    And now for something that is pretty much old hat, considering it’s the final episode of the first series. But the gist is thus:

    It’s Solve This, the improvisational panel show and podcast that is already getting that older podcast paunch that it will need to spend lots of time on a treadmill to lose. It’s been an every-Tuesday thing for four weeks. A panel of four problem-smacking experts smack problems for the amusement of civilization.

    *Please note: the beginning of the episode might sound a bit wonky. With help from Dr. Boutelle, this was remedied later on.

    Joining me for this episode are, in alphabetical order:

  • Jon Boutelle, president and CWTFO of The Unique Geek
  • Ryam Patrick Eros, actor and purveyor of improv
  • J.J. Hawkins, host of Mars Needs Podcasts
  • Aaron Poole, former host of Cabin Fever, blogger and keeper of vocabulary

    Solve This: Episode 1.2

    And now for something significantly less different than the last time I said it was completely different. But because we are nailing down the format, it has its own nooks and crannies and other unique bits. But for the most part, it’s this:
