Well, here we are. The end of the road. Whadya think? Think any of us’ll be as lucky as the Skull Base crew to meet our makers before we die? Well, shit. Now that we’re done, I can say with a smile…I’d do it all again. Took a while to get it out there, but it’s pretty satisfying now that it all’s said and done. Hell, maybe we’ll even get to do a season four some day. Hopefully a little sooner than this ‘un took, but…aw shucks, I’m ramblin’ again. We’ll see y’all down the dusty trail, and hail Bae God Trump. Sorry to be right about that one.
What the huh now? The intrepidly stupid Skull Base crew go back to the present past. Listen on, brave listener, and hear crews past and present bicker and argue, Campbell, Ramble, and Antioch get more evil, and most of season one, episode six again. And who even is the mystery person at the end?! Put on your attention hats and try to keep it all straight, and prepare to swap it out for your headfuck hat. If you’ve got one.
First Jesus, and now Lincoln?! Well, okay, that’s actually a lot better for a number of very good reasons. Still though. The Skull Base Quantum-Leaps-but-just-through-time again, this…. TIME…. to when President Lincoln met his maker. Will they prevent his assassination? Is that why they’re there? Do they even know who Lincoln is? Isn’t there a B story involving Constable Prime hiring an intergalactic and inter….TIME…. bounty hunter? Why haven’t I even mentioned that Socrates is in this episode too, does he like, not count? Stop asking so many fucking questions. There’s the play button. Use it.
The future. The year 200x. Evidently, it’s made up of asinine teenaged girl people and mostly just bullshit everywhere. See, the Ultimate Smartness done blowed up the world. Not many folk left, and what folk is left, well, they’re pretty vapid and r-word-ed, frankly. I wonder who rules the world now? Probably somebody – or something – outwardly racist. Look, the future sucks, that’s the point, alright?
Jesus Christ. Sorry about that, man. Overlord Skull Bludgeon takes on the main man’s role after accidentally parking the time jumping Skull Base right on top of Golgotha’s most famous death-by-torture hillock. Doom Cock can’t even handle how that goes. Others are there and they say and do stuff too. They’re mostly girls though, and Chad Bingo, who frankly has a hard enough time pulling his weight in the crew, am I right? Only one way to find out.
Intrepid listener! We’ve been trapped in a bullshit time loop, and we’ve finally escaped to share our exploits with you, as a podcast. We know this now. We know who you are, and are mostly disappointed with how you look. This is the first part, where we fuck around on time and don’t stop anything bad from happening (because we’re ‘villains’, remember?) but we do make more bad things happen (again, villains). Does it even go anywhere? Does anything even matter? Well, better get listening, I guess.
The season finale is here! Campbell is triumphant; the Ultimate Smartness has come to Earth to spread her Ultimate Loveness while the Skull Base crew races to do…something? about it. A baby is made, a head explodes, and mostly everyone just stands around and argues. Hey, it’s a podcast, what the hell do you want from us?
The gang, having recently reacquired the titular Skull Base from the clutches of Campbell and Antioch Blooddare, have just received an invitation to a party, where they are the guests of honor. And, what the huh? All the super villains from the Dammerung/Cleveland blowing up thing from Season One are there? Don’t those guys hate our guys? I guess we’ll just to listen to figure this whole thing out.
Dwayne is stuck in an elevator with two members of the documentary crew that was filming the Skull Base for a 77 part expose. They are creeps with the uncanny ability to play clips from past episodes to justify their weird sentences. Get all caught up on half of the Skull Base lore with part
one two of our clip show!
When last we left our not-heroes, a battle between not-good and the other guys was about to erupt. But we forgot to give you Campbell’s back story, so we did that instead. Who is Ultimor? What’s that stank in the broom closet? If Guard #2 had the balls to defect, just what in the hell is up with Guard #1, you know? If Chad doesn’t want to be here, why did he invite himself along in the first place? There are many questions, and frankly, I can only think of one way to get answers.
The Skull Base crew head over to local watering hole and all-around useful area The Windup Space to wreak havoc with their masterful karaoke skills.

Bonus: Overlord Skull Bludgeon sings Hazy Shade of Winter at the end. Party.
This is it, Base Heads! The Skull Base crew finally gets their shit together to take back, well, the Skull Base.

And a mole within the Skull Base is revealed! Who is it?! Why would I tell you who it is here? That would be stupid.
Dwayne is stuck in an elevator with two members of the documentary crew that was filming the Skull Base for a 77 part expose. They are creeps with the uncanny ability to play clips from past episodes to justify their weird sentences. Get all caught up on half of the Skull Base lore with part one of our clip show!
Just how and why in the hell is Antioch Blooddare alive, huh?! Who the hell knows! Wait, maybe the narrator knows. He’s omnipotent, right? Let’s all listen to what he has to say…
Oh, also Doom Cock’s intervention happens. Feelings are felt. It’s the kind of uplifting, spiritual high drama you expect from an episode of Meanwhile.
The next thrilling chapter of Hollywood Kerfluffle continues. Will IAMNINJA accept the hit on Stereo Tyler, even when it comes from Stereotype himself? Will Adrian Zmed convince IAMNINJA that Grease 2 was superior to the original? Why would you even ask that?
What has happened to the Skull Base? As everyone’s lives are pretty much garbage now, Dr. Melfa and Honey Killworthy reconnect to bring the team back together to solve this mystery. Meanwhile, X and Dwayne attend a dreaded high school drinking party, which obviously ends in violence. We are here to entertain you, after all. PLUS! The return of a fan favorite long thought dead and buried. All of this, and maybe something else as well, in episode two of season two of Meanwhile, at the Skull Base!
Mr. Tyler has it all. A smash hit television show. A car. A human face and body that is totally not rubber and latex concealing a particularly racist automaton’s metal husk. And yet…is he happy? The answer will be at the end of the episode, so make sure you listen to the whole thing.
Last season saw the fall of the Skull Base. Will we see our not-at-all-heroes reborn in its ashes? Who is left, and what will be entertaining about them? See where the chips fell in the fallout of Cleveland, and also where XSV-15 eats her school lunches. Everything old is slightly different again in season two of Meanwhile, at the Skull Base!

Who will survive, and what will we left our podcast? NO ONE KNOWS.
A new segment approaches! Here’s our first episode of Talking Base, or is it Covering the Bases? Who cares. Anyway, we let the mic run after our last session and this is what it picked up. Get a clue on how Skull Base came together, what you need to do to be the next Dr. Melfa, and just how drunk we can get after an episode recording (spoilers: a lot. A lot drunk).

Dwayne and Stereotype join IAMNINJA on the least clandestine ninja mission of all. OSB delivers his favorite TV monologue of all time. PLOT, people. It’s important.
Overlord Skull Bludgeon assembles a crack team of interns in our newest minisode. Who has the courage, the wherewithal, the totally-not-killed-then-brought-back-to-life-to-star-in-a-crappy-TV-showness to lead this motley menagerie of mundane misfits? The answer may make you uncomfortable.
Our insidious crew attends a super villain trade show to peddle their evil wares and perhaps purchase some eviller ones. Doom Cock runs into a college frie-well, non-victim, OSB gets pissy with a rival bad guy, and Stereotype make us all feel bad about laughter.
