The BEEFY BOYS (Not to be confused with the group BEEFY BOYS) is the official podcast and weekly stream of The WIDEVERSE that chronicles news relevant to the community as well as happenings with members of WIDEVERSE themselves.
The COMMIECAST was The WIDEVERSE's first foray into the world of podcasting, and while successful, had no staying power due to a myriad of reasons ranging from lack of enthusiam to poor coordination on recording and editing. It died after 4 episodes and a video special and the concept was largely forgotten for several years. After the Color Coup, the Bimmercast was proposed by members of BMW, to serve as a successor to the COMMIECAST. Initial plans surfaced after the Bimmers trolling of Jim Lockwood in December of 2017, going as far as to have community members produce bumper music. However, the project never saw the light of day.
In 2022, The BEEFY BOYS podcast launched, incorporating many of The Bimmercasts proposed elements as well as the ad hoc nature of The COMMIECAST.
The first season of The BEEFY BOYS was envisioned to cover both politics and popular culture, although usually focusing mostly on the former. This began to change towards the end of Season 1 as the hosts, mostly Taylor, grew weary of discussing the same issues ad naseum and giving such a platform to things they hate instead of things that were enjoyed like video games and anime. Most political and internet drama was moved to AFTER DARK.
The SIRLOIN STREAM: 90/10 Edition
Due to scheduling conflicts and continuing internet issues, The BEEF STREAM went into a short hiatus starting on September 1st, 2022 with a stripped down version (Less fat, thus sirloin) of the show streaming exclusively on Shing.tv on Monday nights at 10CST. The show continued throughout the month until October 3rd, where the show went into a full hiatus until December.
With a new day picked around Prudes schedule and the installation of fiber to Taylor's office, the show was finally allowed to return on December 3rd, 2022.
The BEEF STREAM: After Dark
Constrained by the content limitations of Twitch, the crew opted to move certain controversial segments to a second stream immediately following the show on Friday nights to Shing.tv, a streaming website owned by members of Nicecrew.digital and friends of BB.W. The show debuted on May 27th and ran until the hiatus in September. Due to continuing scheduling problems, AFTER DARK has yet to make a return.
This Week In Food
Most shows, mostly starting in Season 2, begin with the hosts discussing things they ate or cooked during the week. Frequently features Taylor talking about restaraunts hes tried or one of the boys trying something interesting they found at the grocery store like Warheads soda.
The Snake Pit
Debuting as part of the AFTER DARK stream on June 10th, The Snake Pit was originally envisioned as its own full fledged show to highlight notable Fediverse drama, but was later reduced to just a segment.
The Snake Pits most controversial episode came on July 8th as part of the Nonce of Poast Debacle.
With every new anime season, the lads review the previous seasons anime and scour through MyAnimeList in search of the next seasons bangers and darkhorses. Especially exceptional animes get standalone reviews, usually written and hosted by Taylor.
