The Culture Vultures Lexicon

Over time, many shows have stock references emerge which may be familiar callbacks to regular listeners, but head-scratchers for newcomers. To help you not get too lost when hanging with the Culture Vultures, here's a handy dandy guide to frequently repeated phrases. If there's anything you're still confused about, drop us a line and we'll add it.

Hermione - Pseudonym for Dirk's girlfriend. The meowing Otto frequently does when she's mentioned refers to Dirk's "confession" that Hermione was actually his neighbor's cat whom he stole.

Fortress of Dirkitude - Dirk's ridiculously large collection of physical DVDs and Blu-rays from Otto remarking that he had so many he could build an addition to his home.

McHatin - The original co-host of Culture Vultures for 20 of the first 21 episodes. His departure has been explained variously as alluding to possible CIA actions to overthrow governments and that he's distributing Bibles in El Salvador.  (Which is Spanish for The Salvador.)

Reese Witherspoon/Diamanda Galas/etc. - Pseudonyms for WhiteDogg (real name!), owner of Raw Radio X who engineered the first four shows and has occasionally appeared in early episodes.

Bob "I'm Gonna Kill Somebody" Koski - The "third most-Cultural Vulture"; designated backup co-host and all around cool frood. He saw Straight Outta Compton and we've decided he is now a gangsta pimp.

#GamerGate - The consumers revolt against corruption in the videogame and mainstream press which has been falsely characterized as a hate movement by the media. Several episodes have had substantial segments covering this and can be found here.

Otto's Hanger/Superbuddy Clubhouse - Otto's basement - don't call it a "man cave!" - where we've produced the show since episode #45 after ceasing live broadcasts from the RRX studio.

J.Law/She Who Is Not Named - Jennifer Lawrence (duh) before and after her reign and subsequent exile as the Official Girlfriend of the Culture Vultures.

Official Girlfriend of the Culture Vulture - A woman whose unique blend of beauty, talent and most importantly, fun public persona makes her someone we'd love to hang out with. There is a top slot ("THE Official...") and currently two standard Girlfriends. As of July 21, 2017: THE OGotCV is Krysten Ritter; Emma Stone and Taylor Swift are just OGotCVs.
