Welcome to The Pilots and Petards Podcast. Where we have nothing to do with planes, jets, or any aircrafts, and potentially everything to do with the first episodes of filmic series and or TV shows. Find us at our website or on your podcast app!

Know your Shakespeare, and hoist your petards with us each week as we cast judgement on a pilot episode and determine if that pilot is… to be hoisted, or not to be hoisted: that is the question.

For those of us more dumber than Drew, petard is a real word. Petards are explosive devices traditionally used to blow up doors or walls. Consult your local dictionary for further investigation. Even Jimbo had to look up petard, and he loved Hamlet.

For those who also overlooked it in Hamlet, “Hoist with his own petar,” is a phrase from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. It refers to one’s own plot or device intended for another that ends up self destructive, as poor Rosencrantz and Guildenstern learned all too well. We have modified the phrase to be more inclusive, “Hoist with your own petard.”

We’re going to decide whether these pilots are awesome and deserve a watch or rewatch of the proceeding series. Or we are going to hoist these pilots on their own petards. Meaning, a hoisted pilot is self destructive in its goal of convincing a viewer to keep watching it.

Cheat Sheet:
  • Petard = bomb
  • Hoist a pilot = bad
  • Not to hoist a pilot = good

This is straight up anchoring. Why lie?


But if you got this type of change to throw around, you can have a serious impact on our show!



Goals
$0 of $20 per month
This podcast currently costs us about $20 a month to run, not counting the hours of prep and work to maintain and produce episodes each week.

When we reach $100 per month, we will reinvest that income into the show so we can: produce higher quality episodes; expand our audience; and attract interesting guests to contribute to the Pilots and Petards experience.
