A Good-Bad Wiki about a Good Podcast about Bad Movies[]

­[O]ur references to past episodes and our in-jokes have become so thick now that at times I'm sure it's impossible to comprehend for new listeners.

The Flop House (est. 2007) is a fortnightly[2] audio podcast about movie flops[3], despite officially being about what people think about Topeka[4]. On the appointed day,[5] the trio musters at the Flop House Studios,[6] watches a movie, and then records an episode—the most recent of which is Episode 424: Baby Geniuses.
This acclaimed podcast is hosted by professional comedy writers Dan McCoy and Elliott Kalan (each of whom work worked at The Daily Show) along with "equally funny"[7] barkeep Stuart Wellington. Collectively, they are known to mankind as The Original Peaches.
The trio usually confine themselves to major-studio films advertised and released within the past year or so, which tends to keep things current.[8] Check out the movie titles in the episode list.
Because the guys are close friends and their corpus spans an entire decade, their podcast is rife with inside jokes and callbacks—hence the challenge facing new listeners yearning to catch up.
To that end, this Wiki presently contains 1,029 articles. (Although, to be fair, this impressive-sounding figure does include 256 stubs.)
