This episode is part of a series in which I will be interviewing candidates running in the June 2021 primary for this City Council seat.

L. Joy Williams doesn't rest much. Running on four hours' sleep each night, she dons an array of hats during the day, moving at a breakneck pace to empower more Americans to engage with the political process. I'm grateful she made time to drop by "Strong Reception" to talk with me about increasing voting access in New York, as well as to provide he…
 
Welcome to the first-ever bonus episode of Strong Reception! I couldn't resist putting out this short "extra track." There are just too many smile-inducing moments contained in this unplanned 20-minute convo between myself and Renée Graham, associate editor and opinion columnist at the Boston Globe. After recording our "In Memoriam" episode last mo…
 
As 2020 draws to a close, I am joined by Boston Globe columnist Renée Graham to discuss some of the music legends we lost this year. Renée is an award-winning journalist and among the most fun conversation partners I've had on the subject of music. It's her second time on the show (See Episode 3) and I'm so excited to have her back. She and I each …
 
In this music history episode of "Strong Reception," I am joined by two special guests as we dive into the rich history of the song "Just a Gigolo" and its unlikely sibling tune, "I Ain't Got Nobody." Fellow music nerd Philip Emeott and I walk through the surprisingly complex journey "Just a Gigolo" took from the dance halls of 1920s Vienna to the …
 
If you're like me, you have judges on your ballot this November — in addition to that whole "electing a president who might not want more people to die" thing. Also if you're like me, you hate having to vote for judges you know nothing about, who don't run campaigns, who are nominated by party insiders, and are sometimes running on three or four pa…
 
On September 29, 100,000 New Yorkers (myself among them) received misprinted absentee ballots that had someone else's name on the return envelopes. The gaffe was the result of a multimillion-dollar error from a third-party vendor (way to go, Phoenix Graphics), but it's still not a great look for the New York City Board of Elections, which has a his…
 
Renee Graham is a renowned music and arts journalist who has been writing for the Boston Globe for thirty years. Her remarkable ability to speak on the cultural and social movements of the last fifty years has made her a highly sought-after documentary guest, and you can hear her expert commentary in Netflix's "The Two Killings of Sam Cooke," and i…
 
Fugees. Flack. Lieberman? The wonderfully talented yet woefully unheralded singer-songwriter Lori Lieberman explains how she conceived, co-wrote and was the first to record the '70s (and '90s) classic "Killing Me Softly With His Song" — without ever getting a songwriting credit, and while under the thumb of a domineering management team that tried …
 
In this episode of Strong Reception, I talk to Brooklyn activist, carpenter and entrepreneur Sandy Nurse, who recently ran to fill the empty seat in New York's 37th City Council District during the height of New York's COVID-19 crisis. Nurse's campaign was just starting to gather momentum — even collecting some high-powered endorsements from folks …
 
Get ready for some situations, and maybe even some comedy, as we drop the first episode in our "S(t)einfeld Stinkers" series! This time Jason Alexander goes from lovably enraged loser George Costanza to a third rate Tony Robbins named Bob Patterson. The ep we watched, "Naked Bob," deals with his serious confidence issues regarding his downtown regi…
 
Mike and Morgan each give you their top 5 shows to stream on Netflix and Hulu! It's a scary time for us all, let's try to make the best of it by staying inside and watching some good TV shows! We'll be back to bad tv next time, but some positivity felt right for this week. Stay safe Baddies! List of shows:GLOW - Netflix Arrested Development - Netfl…
 
Good golly, it's our two year podiversary!! We celebrate by finally having our hilarious and talented friend, comedian/actor/podcaster Nick Aragon (F*ck This Place podcast, @instaragon) on the show!! And what a treat of a show we had for him! (shout-out to Josh Hollis of Predict-o-Cast for the recommendation!!) In a world full of shows based on pop…
 
There can only be one... spinoff of a TV show... spun off from a movie... But that means there's definitely at least three... Right?? Truthfully we don't know anything about the Highlander series, and watching this brief side quest didn't help us out at all. I think it involves swords, kicking stuff, and maybe stealing diamonds? On the plus side, M…
 
Paging Dr. Reception! It’s the return of Good Reception! We take a look at the massive hit medical drama/mystery/comedy House (or House, M.D., it was unclear what the official title was). Will this House our new home, or will we be “bringing down the House??” We had never seen even a single episode of this seminal series starring the world’s grumpi…
 
Things get hairy this week as we take a silver-handled stab at the mid-season transformation of 1990's She-Wolf of London, Love and Curses! That's right, after 14 episodes, this lady-werewolf show was moved to Los Angeles, retooled and even given a new name! ...And then was cancelled after 6 episodes. Our friend, and talented actor, Lucia Towers jo…
 
If there's one thing that kids love, it's serious, high-concept science fiction, right?! Well somebody must have thought so, because the 1994 semi-hit film, turned beloved series, Stargate, got the animated treatment in 2002! But make sure your kids are all caught up with the SG universe because this baby ain't gonna hold your hand with exposition.…
 
Merry KITTsmas everyone!! This holiday season we watched the somewhat Christmas-y episode "Silent Knght" of the 1982 classic Knight Rider! Everyone is here: Raw Hoff, Mr. Feeny, problematic terminology, Santa with a machine gun, bank robbing clowns, jumping cars, killer corn tractors, and, who could forget, the Worst Uncle Ever! It's our first time…
 
Happy Thanksgiving! Sorry we’re late! Josh makes his return to the podcast to watch another one of the Worst Shows of 2019!! This time it’s the unhelpfully titled CW series, Pandora! Critics and audiences have made their opinions known, Pandora stinks! (Despite this it has been inexplicably renewed for a second season!?) Anyway it’s 3:00am on Thank…
 
You're stranded on a desert island and all you can bring is this Netflix original series... I bet you still couldn't finish all seven episodes! We watched the critical bashing post The I-Land beginning our coverage of the worst TV of 2019! Seriously, this one nearly broke Morgan. I wasn't sure she would make it through the whole thing. If not for t…
 
Did you know that “P.I.” stands for Paranormal Investigator? Well, that’s because it doesn’t, but ghosts are abound (or are they??) in this episode of the seminal 80s classic, Magnum P.I.!! We were both shamefully unfamiliar with the mega-hit show and thought it would be fun to close out the Halloween season with a spooky episode of a cheesy 80s st…
 
It's that time of year again! We're back with a new episode for the purveyors of the best Halloween Horror content on the internet, #AllTheHorror!! This year we're counting down our top ten segments from The Simpson's yearly horror anthology episodes, Treehouse of Horror! We cover all the murder and mayhem. Every laugh, gasp, and splat of this clas…
 
Kick or Treat, baddies!! The Halloween season is upon us again, and you know what that means! A whole month of Horror shows and Halloween specials! We start with a very spooky episode of Walker, Texas Ranger called "The Children of Halloween!" That's right, Chuck Norris straight up karate chops evil between the butt-cheeks! Plus there's plenty of r…
 
We're back!! And so is Jenna Elfman! That's right, it's an all new Elfman on the Shelf! This time she's taking her lovable quirks all the way to White House in the politically inept 2012 NBC comedy, 1600 Penn! Now the Elfster is playing second fiddle to America's favorite singing snowman, Josh Gad! The votes are in, and viewers elected... to change…
 
Don't call it a rerun! We celebrate 10,000 downloads with a special edition re-release of one of our favorite early episodes! Already heard it? Well, there's some all new content bookending it! We'll be back next week with a new episode but hopefully this flashback will tide you over until then. This week we watch the bay... and the skies!! It's th…
 
We Have The Power!!! The power to watch really bad 90s cartoon reboots that is! It's everyone's favorite muscle bound sword-swinger, He-Man! But not quite like you remember him. That's right, just a few years after Masters of the Universe, in 1990, He-Man was rebooted, lamer, and tamer than ever! Remember Skeletor, the awesome, ripped skeleton-man …
 
The world has been clamoring for another Small Reception, and you know that we never disappoint! ...Okay, so nobody actually asked for it, but we didn't have time to do full episode this week, and it's better than nothing right?? We talk about Mike's two true loves: Carly Rae Jepsen and WWE wrestling, Morgan's many new soda-based jobs, our favorite…
 
We dish out the hot goss on the sexiest episode of Bad Reception yet! That's right it's episode 69 and you know what that means: obligatory innuendos and plenty of us saying, "nice." Get ready for a buttload of gasps, slaps, and stabs in the back, it's the 2009 reboot of Melrose Place.We're joined by our good friend, and fan of the show, Tara!! Mor…
 
We're getting too old for this dogsh*t! This week we're joined by our pal Ben Hunter to watch one of the most notoriously bad TV shows of all time, the gritty crime drama turned goofy fantasy sitcom, Poochinski! Nothing can prepare you for this unbelievably silly premise that concerns grumpy cop Peter Boyle, a lovable bulldog, brutal murder and... …
 
In a change of pace, this week we took listener questions from Twitter and answered them live on the air! Why? Because we were three days late and didn't have enough time to do a real episode?? NO! And frankly that kind of attitude is not welcome in the Bad Reception Recording Bungalow™️. It's because we love our fans and want to know what you want…
 
It's the return of The Cox! We're back with another installment of "Friends Before Friends" and it turns out that way before she was Monica Gellar, Courtney Cox was getting her telekinesis on in the super 80s (and surprisingly meta) action comedy, Misfits of Science!! This show is absolutely chock full of cheesy jokes, awesome tunez, stunnin' shade…
 
Do you love political minutia and hate entertainment? Do you like Veep but wish it was devoid of humor? Have you always thought 24 should "just drop the whole action thing already!?" Oh boy, do we have a show for you! In a desperate attempt to find anything relevant to currently popular TV show, Stranger Things, we watched the 2014 David Harbour st…
 
Happy Independence... Week!? We celebrate America by taking a look at what it does best: taking something from dumb old England and making it way better!! ::guitar solo:: In 1992 NBC took a crack at remaking the cult BBC sci-fi comedy hit Red Dwarf, hoping to find the next big American sitcom. Even though it never aired, and never even got a second…
 
Hey all your Bad Reception superfans, this one's for you!! We were late this week and instead of just another boring old episode, we thought we'd give you about 40 minutes of us just bullshitting and trying to come up with random questions about the shows we've watched so far. It's totally not a filler episode. And I'm sure new listeners will get a…
 
Something’s fishy this week as we watch the 2006 pilot for what would have been The CW’s Aquaman! That’s right, everyone’s favorite superhero punchline, the whale whisperer himself, Aquaman, was star of his very own TV show… For one episode anyway. Also this show has A LOT to do with the Bermuda triangle. Not really sure what that's all about. Josh…
 
We celebrate the return of Morgan(!) with a brand new show whose single episode cancellation has the internet buzzing and fans rioting, it’s the DC Universe original series, Swamp Thing! This is the first time we’ve done a show that’s still currently airing, but with all the controversy surrounding it’s ludicrously quick termination, we had to find…
 
I've heard of daddy issues, but this is ridiculous! This week we watched as the lady anti-Christ turned against her old man (aka, Satan!), in 2005's super soapy, Good vs Evil drama, Point Pleasant! It may have only lasted 8 episodes but Mike is still pining over the loss of this obscure Fox failure, co-created by former Buffy showrunner Marti Noxon…
 
Hold on to your joysticks (and internal organs!), this week we watched the television adaptation of the most notorious video game of the 90s, Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm! Brent from Home Video Hustle is back to fill in for Morgan, and he brings his ridiculously detailed knowledge of all things Kombat! No character is too obscure, no back …
 
Holy Cats! What do you get when you mix feline cyborgs, ancient Japanese warriors, and the most delicious food on the planet?? The 1990 animated import, Samurai Pizza Cats! It’s a veritable fancy feast of puns, guns, parody, and hilarity, and almost certainly the only show to feature robot cats being launched out of a gun-shaped pizzeria! Morgan is…
 
Crime is a computer virus… She’s the cure! We watched the absolutely ridiculous, ultra-90s cyber-police procedural, Mann & Machine! From the creator of Law and Order comes the classic story of a grumpy butthole police detective who hates robots but is forced to team up with a beautiful and acrobatic android who has a pre-school education and a love…
