Is Amazon the New Sears? (Podcast)

Rick and Rick Is Amazon the New Sears
A recent article in The Atlantic postulates that the history of Sears Roebuck & Company predicts nearly everything Amazon is doing.

It's a fascinating and apt notion when you look at the evolution of first Sears and now everyone's favorite online retailer.

Rick Mathieson and Rick Wootten discuss the similarities and how a retailer once deemed too big to fail got disrupted by another—and wonder about what's ultimately in store (pardon the pun) for Amazon.

'Star Trek: Discovery'—Where No Streaming App Has Gone Before? (Podcast)


Why create a blockbuster new show and then hide it away where nobody will ever watch it?

Rick Mathieson and Rick Wootten assess the first episode of "Star Trek: Discovery," the first new show developed for CBS All Access, a kind of Netflix dedicated exclusively to CBS properties.

It must have seemed like a great idea at the time—create a show with a built in, hardcore fan base to draw new viewers to this new app. But is it enough to pull in the Ricktators, both lifelong Trek fans?

The first episode is solid, the 15-episode first season surely enjoyable, and a second season has already been greenlit.

Yet the Ricks have yet to watch another episode.

See what they have to say about the show and the legacy of Trek. Then let us know your own thoughts about "Star Trek: Discovery" and CBS All access.

Stop the Insanity: Peak Pumpkin Spice is Here (Podcast)

Rick & Rick—Peak Pumpkin Spice
What hath Starbucks spawned?

The ever-popular coffeehouse chain scores a seasonal hit with its Pumpkin Spice Lattes and now every brand and its mother has to have its own pumpkin spice something. Anything. It doesn't even seem to matter what it is.

Rick Mathieson and Rick Wootten aren't having any of it. And when they audit some of the ridiculous products brands are offering this year just to jump on the pumpkin spice bandwagon, you're not going to believe what they found. But fair warning: Its not for sensitive stomachs.
