Episode 2A Redux: “The Walking Douche”

SHOW NOTES EPISODE 2A REDUX: “The Walking Douche”

hipster-zombie-costume-1

In the “Best Of” (using those words a bit loosely huh?) Episode Host Dave Bledsoe discusses the rising tide of douchebags slowly consuming New York City.  No word on whether or not he considers himself as the problem or solution.  Along the way we look at the Bank Branch Event Horizon, where it is no longer possible to building anything BUT bank branches.  We also mourn the loss of weird in the world and then lament the lot of the angry drunk old man at the bar.  (Hint: That would be Dave).

Promotional consideration is by Re-Run everything old is new again with Re-Run.  We open with web series that never existed as far as we can tell and close with Jim Croce.

Hypnostate provides the music in our opening credits.

Episode 39 Redux: Veteran of a 1000 Christmas Wars

SHOW NOTES EPISODE 39 REDUX:
“Veteran of a Thousand Christmas Wars”

In this week’s non-specific cultural seasonal tradition of your choice show, Host Dave Bledsoe is visited by three ghosts: The Ghost of Christmas Cash, the Ghost of Christmas Credit and the Ghost of Collections Agencies, to teach him the meaning of hating Christmas.

Along the way we also wonder why there is Christmas in Eternia, ask why we stop killing each other just the one day of year and learn why Dave is not allowed to return to the Republic of South Korea.  (Hint:  It’s alcohol related.)  We are our grievances over the length of the Season, learn to love fossilized feces and to loath the Chrisma-Nazi.

We hope you enjoy this Christmas Classic, that is what we are calling this rather than rerun because Dave was too lazy to write fresh content. On the up side, there are ZERO Trump mentions in this show! So, get off his ass, he is flying to the West Coast to a Socialist Lesbian Atheist Commune Post Solstice Sharing Circle on Christmas Eve!  We hope you and yours don’t try to kill each other this weekend.

Promotional consideration provided by Karl Kringle’s Discount Elf Hut.  We open the show with Bad Santa and close with Blue Oyster Cult.

Episode 90: “What’s So Civil About War Anyway?”

SHOW NOTES EPISODE 90 “What’s So Civil About War Anyway?”


This week Host Dave Bledsoe takes us all back to school as the nation’s electors give it the old college try and finally end this god awful election once and for all. Get ready for another pointless history lesson, and some really mediocre Disney musicals featuring Buddy Ebsen!

Along the way we learn about Richard Mentor Johnson and the Octoroon Julia Chinn.  We theorize on the potential ramifications of an Electoral College upset at the last moment.  (Hint:  Think Disastrous) There are some cutting remarks about the hit Broadway play Hamilton AND the actual Alexander Hamilton.  (Buy One Get One Free!).

We postulate on what the Second American Civil War might look like, comparing and contrast to other popular Civil Wars in recent history.  There WILL be a quiz on the material at the end of the podcast which will count for 30% of your grade.  We suggest taking notes.

Then we wrap with really depressing analogies to fatal diseases and the agony of chemotherapy.  (You can assume this is not a “happy” show).  But then we bring it all back with the War on Saturnalia!

Promotional consideration for this week’s show by Tom’s Town Criers, keeping a pointless institution alive far past the point it outlived usefulness!  We open the show with George Carlin and close with, you guessed it, Guns and Roses.

Citations Need: Not the Mentor we needed, but the Mentor we deserved, 97% Percent Crazy, The inspiration for every Cranberries song ever written, Flirting with Disaster.

Episode 89: You Can’t Fix Stupid

SHOW NOTES EPISODE 89: “YOU CAN’T FIX STUPID”

batboy_lead-1050x656

This week Host Dave Bledsoe takes on Big Dictionary in his never ending quest to have Bloosnargl accepted as an actual word.  (Bloosnargl (n): The overwhelming feeling of relief and joy after taking a really big dump.  –Dave exited the men’s room with a spring in his step and feeling all bloosnargl.)  He also takes issue with the idea of “Post Truth” being Oxford’s word of the year, since it’s a bullshit term and the idea is ripped off from Colbert.

Along the way we learn about the history of fake news in America, and how it gave us the truth about Jefferson going black and not coming back.  We also get a Latin lesson no one asked for and learn the the truth about Bat Boy. (Hint:  Think Elvis).  There is a stunning revelation about Dave regarding the duration of his belief in Santa Claus.  (Awkward!)  Conspiracies are debunked, feelings are hurt and apologies are not given.  Except to Santa who finally did show up with that Millennium Falcon we’d been asking for.

Promotional consideration this week provided by Gut Check, who wants you to know there is nothing you can’t do if you don’t accept the truth!  We open the show with Rust Cohle and close with Frank Zappa.

Citations Need: Check your Callender Jefferson!, a MUCH better podcast, Alcuin of York was a Yasss Queen.

Episode 88: “Something For the Ladies”

stephanie_marshall_mezzo_performance-1-1024x684

SHOW NOTES EPISODE #88:  “SOMETHING FOR THE LADIES”

This week Host Dave Bledsoe steps into the uncomfortable shoes of women in Trumpmerica and finds that even though they are painful and sexist, these 4” Stiletto heels make his legs look amazing.  On a slightly less disturbing topic, the show dives into the ideas the incoming administration might have for making America great again for women.  (Hint: They are only great for dudes.)   

We discuss abortion rights (Gone) contraception (Yeah Right) sexual harassment (All lies) and rape culture (made up) and how they will be handled.  We meet the men who will be helping all you ladies understand the complexities of your own bodies and minds, including a new spokesman (none of that spokesperson business here!) that will reach out to the youth of America!  Along the way we meet the new Twitter Czar, a position that we made up but will almost certainly exist shortly!  Finally, we discuss Ivanka’s plan to help the visually unappealing reach full employment!

Promotional consideration for this week’s show is provided by Mansplainer, explaining that you really don’t know the thing you clearly think you know!  We open the show with George Carlin’s simple explanation of the GOP’s plan for women and close the show with Liz Phair.  

Citations Needed: There’s gotta be some kind of punishment, Names you may know.
