Hello again and welcome back to the show. In this weeks episode we do something completely different. We are doing a debate class exercise of defending different things. Can you, on the spot, put together a defending argument for say...wild fires? What about for driving a gas guzzling SUV? We try our best at defending some morally reprehensible things in this weeks episode and we did not enjoy doing it (Tyler especially).
There are few things so quintessentially American as a road trip. Apple pie, explosions, over eating are all staples of American life, but no American experience can be so amazing and terrible as a long car rides in a confined space with family or friends. There is freedom in that. There is trauma in that. There are stories in that. These are some of our stories (and by some I mean very little because one of the hosts decided, as a means of moral boosting, that we should all share a 4Loko and things got sloppy)
We're down but not out! Just so you're not left without us for too long, we chopped and screwed some lost episodes to make a shorter, bite-sized version of our show. They say, "kill your darlings" but we canibalized ours to cut out all the filler to leave you with the shinning parts of bad episodes.
Everyone has a movie idea kicking around in their head. Well we have ideas for television shows. Several ideas to be exact and in todays episode we let the world in on them. Some are dumb, some are interesting, some should never be made...ever. Enjoy the trip into our imagination and know that if one of our shows finds it's way onto t.v. we will demand money for our ideas!
Hind sight is 20/20 and it is easy to question and ridicule the fads of our childhood. But some trends arise that are so perplexing and dumb that, as soon as we see them, we have to ask ourselves, "Y tho?". This episode is dedicated to current trends that we don't need time to realize they are stupid.

The "my dad could beat up your dad" debate is small potatoes compared to this weeks episode of theoretical slobber knockers. We throw out hypothetical fights that we'd like to see and decide who would come out victorious. Some are silly, some are personal, and some are downright weird. Nothing is held back when it's no holds barred!
The heroes journey would be boring if it were not for a truly evil villain. Batman would be a man in black spandex, growling at people if it weren't for the Joker. This episode is about our favorite villains in television, film, and anywhere else evil men triumph.
No one knows why a song becomes a hit more than another. Yes, music and melody play a part but there is that intangible, undefinable thing that makes them memorable-- even if the artist/group fades into obscurity. This episode is all about the one hit wonders that stuck with us and the rest the America as that one great song from a forgotten artist.
Hollywood typically tends to go for the sure thing. Remakes are an easy way to prey on peoples' nostalgia while lowering the financial risk by using an already established title. HEY HOLLYWOOD! Here are some movies we think deserve a remake. Pay attention big wig fat cats and get on it. *Spoiler alerts for "Waterworld"*
All hail the Lizard People! Along with the help of ancient aliens and false flag operations we can now fully embrace our digital nanny Alexa as our overlords (we tried to put as many conspiracies in there before our brain started to break). This week we run down our lists for our favorite conspiracy theories. Surprisingly, there were no duplicates. Which goes to show you how many there are out there.
"New Coke" Conspiracy
Coka-Cola's "New Coke" was made to bait-and-switch high fructose corn syrup in for actual sugar, as a means to save money.
