Tell 'Em Steve Dave Bonus Podcasts

Tell 'Em Steve-Dave! is a weekly podcast that is released Fridays on the SModcast Podcast Network. It is hosted by View Askew Productions regulars and close friends of Kevin Smith; Bryan Johnson, Walt Flanagan, as well as Brian Quinn. They are also joined regularly by Ming Chen, who works on the many View Askew websites.[1] On occasion, the group has also been joined by Sunday Jeff, who works the Sunday shift at Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash. Jeff was also a host on the podcast Puck Nuts. Johnson played Steve-Dave and Flanagan played Fanboy who yelled "Tell 'em, Steve-Dave!" in Mallrats and Clerks: The Animated Series.

As of January 2015 they have released 233 episodes of the podcast, as well as 13 bonus podcasts which can be purchased on their bandcamp page. Included is one of the podcasts which is a bonus Puck Nuts episode which the hosts also appear on as well as the Tell 'Em Steve-Dave! X-Mas podcasts which can be found as single episodes or yearly bundles.

The podcast is recorded at Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash in Red Bank, New Jersey.

History[edit]

The podcast was originally started by Johnson, Flanagan, with Quinn working the audio. The podcast discusses its own history in numerous episodes available at the SModCo website.

The show influenced the creation of the 2012 AMC TV reality show Comic Book Men. The show is set in the Stash and the cast includes Walt, Bryan, Ming, Mike, and Kevin. A producer on Smith's film Red State knew someone at AMC and talked to Smith about doing a TV show. Smith had the idea of a comic store version of Pawn Stars. The network liked it and the search for a suitable store began. An AMC producer heard the TESD podcast, and this eventually led to the show being set in the Secret Stash store itself.[2] Johnson can be seen wearing a TESD shirt during many episodes of the show. His arm tattoo also features a zombified picture of his niece wearing a TESD shirt.[3]

Additional & occasional episodes[edit]

Tell 'Em Steve-Dave! Overkill[edit]

Sixteen episodes were made exclusively for Zune in 2011. A seventeenth episode was recorded but never released. As of January 2013, all Overkill episodes including an intro/retrospective and the seventeenth unreleased episode are available for purchase from their bandcamp.[4]

Space Monkeys[edit]

Brian Quinn and Bryan Johnson created the sub-podcast Space Monkeys as a companion to Tell 'Em Steve-Dave! to talk about the hot button issues that Walter Flanagan would rather not touch on. They completed a sold out tour of three English cities in 2011 as well as a show in Los Angeles in January of 2012 with special guest Iain Morris and Sal Vulcano of the Tenderloins filling in for Bryan.[5]

Tell 'Em Steve-Dave! X-Mas[edit]

Starting in 2011, an additional episode was released featuring Ming and Sunday Jeff on Black Friday discussing various childhood Christmas stories as well as playing Christmastime games. Now a yearly tradition, episodes are released on Black Friday and can be purchased on their bandcamp.[6][7][8][9] Fan favourite "Git - em Steve Dave" is now a mainstay of the Xmas special due to increasingly high demand from the listeners, and fans of the "Git-em" brand.
