This week Host Dave Bledsoe asks the listeners to please stand clear of the closing doors, there is a podcast directly behind this one. On the show this week we take a look at the broke ass, no good, very bad, pee smelling New York City Subway System. (Don’t worry we make it relevant to you Middle America!) If you’ve never experienced a crowded mass transit man vigorously masturbating to you, you will now!
Along the way we learn the history of why the United States doesn’t give a damn about Mass Transit (Hint: You might be in the reason right now). We determine once and for all who is in charge of making the trains run on time in New York City. (He is Italian, but no Mussolini) Also within, everything you thought you knew about the Interstate is probably wrong. (Originally, no cars allowed!) Finally, we give you the car owning American every reason to question your decision to own and car and a little taste of an average trip on the Subway. (Trigger Warning for anyone who drives or rides the subway.)
Our Sponsor this week in New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who wants you to know this shit ain’t on him! We open the show with Elaine Benes as Every New Yorker and close with Youtuber Timothy Dennis’ cover of “Steel Rail Blues”. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4CU1p3o9S4)
This week Host Dave Bledsoe has his manager reach out to contacts in Germany hoping to set up a meeting about some compromising material he has on Angela Merkel, only discover he has no manager. On the show this week, we discuss how a music promoter, a shitty Russian Pop Star and a lawyer named we think Natasha Fatale somehow managed to fuck Hillary Clinton out of the White House. This story is so stupid it has to be true.
Along the way we talk about how dumb you have to be to admit to a federal crime on Twitter. (Donald Jr Dumb) We relive the Dumpster Age of Television in USA Network Prime Time Crime Dramas of the mid-90’s. (Don’t even lie, you WATCHED them!) We once for all do away with the notion that Don Jr is the Fredo of the Trump Family. (We know it was you Tiffany, you broke our hearts!) And in the Wayback we head to 1805 and the King of Mexico, who was neither a Mexican, nor a King. Most importantly, we define what the fuck treason IS and implore people to stop using it incorrectly. (Hint: No one has committed Treason since 1945!)
Our Sponsor this week is Vlad’s Talent Booking, Ve Haf Starz! Are good! Make with good song and maybe kompromat, who know? We open the wwith show Don Jr’s admissions interview at Wharton and close with the Baba Yaga’s rendition of Nataliya’s trip home. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqFK3WeLySA&feature=youtu.be)
Episode 117: All We Have to Fear Is the Tweet Itself
This week Host Dave Bledsoe gets body slammed by the truth when he learns that wrestling is still a thing apparently. On the show this week, we tackle the Trump’s Twitter War with the Media and wonder what the hell is wrong with America. (Hint: Both suck.) Along the way we dive into the credibility gap between our Fourth Estate and the American public and wonder how we got here. (Hint: Wolf Blitzer) We also threaten to reveal the identity of that one guy on Twitter who keeps pointing out typos in the show notes. (WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE “TOM”!)
We hit the Wayback Machine for a trip to 1952 and see how a drunken loudmouth used the media to ascend to power and how the media used a drunken loudmouth for ratings. We reveal the truth about the REAL hero of the McCarthy Era and how a Senator slapped him in a Dupont Circle bar. (Honestly, this sort of things happens a LOT in DuPont Circle, at least in Dave’s experience.) We also offer a sincere suggestion to CNN to solve their credibility problems and give America face of truth and integrity. (Hint: He told us about the dangers of Role Playing Games in the 80’s. And it’s NOT Pat Robertson)
Our sponsor this week is Easy Eddie’s Journalism Academy, skip the school and get the scoop! We open the show with the honesty of Stephen Glass and close with Joshua and the Note Ninja’s fabric softening cover of on Henley (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFB2xblO2R)
This week Host Dave Bledsoe asks the doctor to give him news, only find out he has bad case of loving you. (The prognosis is not good.) On the show this week we FINALLY do the health care episode we’ve been trying avoid like a Republican Congressman in his district. Like his constituents, it leaves us even more pissed off than when we started.
Along the way we learn the history of medicine in America, like how many chickens it would cost for a syphilis treatment (three but no promises it works) and the best places to die on the streets of your town. (Near the pizza parlor, trash pickup will cart off your body). We also discover the rather disturbing backstory of Mr. Peabody and Sherman–no really, we are not cool with this, it’s kind of sick. We also talk about LBJ’s dick, which you are required to do each time your bring up LBJ in a historical context, why do you think they wait so late in High School to teach you about VietNam? We explain exactly why your insurance sucks and learn long after their demise exactly what the hell an HMO was supposed to be. (They financed trips to golf clubs for doctors.) We look at who suffers under the Senate Tax Cut Bill masquerading has a health care. (That would be YOU, unless you are rich, then you will do GREAT!) Finally we close with what you can do to help. (Die quickly)
Our sponsor this week is Shitshurance, we cover your shit. We open the show with Chris Rock explaining insurance and close with Len Rozamus (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfYd8TFo1qU) covering Jackson Brown’s ophthalmological opus.
