Episode 199: “Howard’s End”

Episode 199: “Howard’s End”

This week Host Dave Bledsoe just want a simple cup of damn coffee, is that too much to ask? (Apparently so) On the show this week, we wonder if it is too much to ask if Howard Schultz could take his ass back to ruining Seattle instead of all America.  (Turns out, he can’t)

Along the way we look into the history of Mr Crappy Coffee Man and why he thinks he should be President. (He’s delusional)  We examine America’s reactions to another rich white dude with no business being President running to be President.  (Turns out, not enthused.)  Then we dive into the psyche of the wealthy that drives them to be such pricks.  (Because they can.) Finally, we determine what it will take for Howard to take the hint and finally abandon his nonsense ideas.  (We must wait for the Stars to Be Right!)

Our Sponsor this week is Regular Ass Coffee, when you just want a cup of DAMN COFFEE.  We open the show with the OTHER famous Schultz and close with Rachael Sage assigning blame.

Episode 198: I Saw A White Face, and They’re All Painted Black

Show Notes Episode 198: “I See A White Face, and They’re All Painted Black”

This week Host Dave Bledsoe digs into his own history of cultural appropriation stubbornly continues to do his “Uncle Murray” impression.  (Mel Brooks should sue his ass!)  On the show this week, we take a look at the long and embarrassing history of White People being just the Whitest of people.  (Honestly, White People!)

We open with a long talk about what the hell people are thinking in Virginia, and we mean that honestly does anyone know what is going on down there things seem a bit tense? We then dive headlong into the murky waters of why some black people thought it would be a good idea to paint their face black for their “art”.  (Because they are White.)  Then we take a fast tour through ALL the things stolen from Black folks by White folks and why they stole them.  (Because, again, White People.)  We ask some tough questions about WHY White people have such a blind spot to their ongoing cultural looting and why they get so upset about being called out over it.  (You guessed it: because they are White people.)  Finally, we look at how we can we can shake white people from their privilege and complacency so this sad tradition dies with this generation.  (Pinkface at White People Parties, the parties where fun isn’t allowed.)

Our Sponsor this week is Flightless Bird Shoe Polish who want to remind you their product is MEANT TO BE USED ON SHOES NOT YOUR FACE!  We open the show with hands down the most offensive movie we’ve seen since Birth of a Nation and we close with Spinning Jenny explaining their portal color palette.

Episode 197: Will the Real Roger Stone Please Stand Up?

Show Notes Episode 197: “Will the Real Roger Stone Please Stand Up?”

This week Host Dave Bledsoe reveals what his friends in high school REALLY thought about him. (The ones that really existed anyway.)  On the show this week we FINALLY get to talk about Roger Stone, who this week FINALLY got his turn in the barrel.

Along the way we discover the dark underworld of GOP politics and how their nefarious tactics got so many criminal incompetents elected!  (It’s not big secret, they just threw a lot of money around.)  We devote the bulk of the show to the life and times of Nixon loving swinger Roger Stone, who would like you to believe he’s been at the center of every political scandal, dirty trick and nefarious double since Julius Caesar got shivved on the Senate floor!  (Or WAS he?  Roger, Jules was DEFINITELY shanked!)  We go on to chart Roger’s stunning rise and amusing fall from grace and his long relationship with the Orange Hate.  We learn how more than anyone else, Roger Stone is why Individual-1’s fat ass squats behind the Resolute Desk. (This alone should land Roger in jail!)  Finally, we examine Roger’s legal trouble and wonder how such a two bit huckster fits into le’Affair Rus. (The word “patsy” springs to mind.)

Our Sponsor this week is Black, Manafort, Stone and Kelly, who want you to know there is no deed so dark they won’t represent you.  If the check clears. We open with Roger in his own words and close with Laurier LaChance asking if we’ve seen white people before.  (We have)

Episode 195: Pardon This Trash Heap

Show Notes Episode 195: “Pardon This Trash Heap”

This week Host Dave Bledsoe decides to tidy up and organize the studio by finally collecting all the empty Jameson bottles and use the recycling cash for more Jameson. (Seriously, this is a HUGE amount of recycling cash!)  On the show this week we examine the latest craze sweeping the nation:  throwing out all of your useless crap so you can buy MORE useless crap! (God Bless America!)

Along the way we meet Marie Kondo, whose philosophy of organizing has inspired America to flood Goodwill with old tshirts and skid marked underwear.  We learn the secrets Marie uses to track down and destroy the dark spirits which lurk in our closets. (Look out Chuck Norris!)  We learn that Dave’s Mom was practicing KondoMari long before Marie was born because there was NO WAY they were taking ALL of these Star Wars figures to GUAM!  Half of them don’t even have heads! (Don’t ask what happened to the heads, you will be happier not knowing!)  Then we take a surprising detour into Eastern religious philosophy and how they shape not only aesthetics but history AND why Western Religions makes us all such greedy assholes!  (Turns out God DOES want you to have all those pairs of shoes!)  Finally we close with a piece of poetry by Dave favorite poet.  (Surprisingly, it was NOT written on a bathroom stall in the Port Authority.  Though, we guess, it COULD be?)

Our Sponsor this week is Your High School Yearbooks, who want you to know despite not being touched or even seen for at least twenty years, they can STILL spark joy, so please don’t thrown them out! We open the show with how to KonMari your family and close with Superchuck who ask your forgiveness for the mess.

Episode 194: When the Walls Come Tumblin’ Down

Show Notes Episode 194: “When the Walls Coming Tumblin’ Down”

This week Host Dave Bledsoe learns there IS a lot of difference between a bridge and a wall, when John Cameron Mitchell threatens to sue him for performing Hedwig songs at karaoke. (Talk about Hedwig’s lament!)  On the show this week, we talk how every government shutdown is stupid, but a Trump shutdown is stupid in it’s own way.

Along the way we learn about the history of shutting down the government and who is always responsibly.  (Hint:  They contain the letter G,O, &P).  We detail exactly HOW we got to where we are right now in this shut down.  (A few thousand very dumb people in just the right states voted for a moron.) We get to go inside the mind of the President (it’s smaller than even we thought) and understand WHY he is so adamant he gets his little wall.  (Turns out, he is a racist old gasbag!  Who knew?!)  Finally, if all else fails, Dave has a solution not just for the shutdown but a win/win for both Trump supporters and Rational Thinking Americans!  (It involves a Wall!)

Our Sponsor this week is Wally the Wall Guy, from East Berlin to Johnson City, Wally the Wall Guy!  We open the show Individual-1 claiming credit where it is due, and close with Comfort Zone’s gut renovation project.

Episode 193: “The Race Is On”

Show Notes Episode 193: “The Race Is On”

This week Host Dave Bledsoe feels tears welling up cold and deep on the inside when he discovers he’s caught his testicles in his zipper.  Again. On the show this week we examine the early contenders for the Democratic nomination in 2020. (We know, too soon.)

Along the way, we break down the pros and cons of the top seven polling potentials and award each a highly scientific rating on their chances based on Dave’s Maternal Grandmother’s sophisticated Granny Contingent Possibility Scale.  (Suck it Nate Silver and Nate Cohen!)  We look into their qualifications and their drawbacks in a purely objective and not at all fanboy fashion. (Although, if Beto would LIKE us to join his campaign in a media role, we would not turn it down.)  Finally, we address the implausibility and impossibility of making ANY predictions about 2020 this far out, with the looming specter of Nancy Pelosi being President by the time we get to that election.  (There is a non-zero chance!)

Our Sponsor this week is Predicto-O-Polls, polling the future with as much accuracy and reliability as polls today.  We open the show with Skroob Administration and close with JB 5nDime singing about the state of the race.

Episode 192: Reeling In the Year (Recapping 2018)

Show Notes Episode 192: Reeling In the Year (2018 Recapped)

This week Host Dave Bledsoe just phones it in really.  (He is barely even trying.)   Which is why you are getting a stupid clip show.  It shows you, our valued listener that we we care just enough to do the very least.  So, enjoy this year in review as we look back in loathing, disgust and horror on the year that was 2018 in one low rated podcast.

Happy New Year.  We guess.

Our Sponsor this week is 1975, you may think 2018 was BAD, but it’s got nothing on 1974,  We open with some computer generated voice, which is more pathetic that someone made a video like this or that we used it as a show intro.  (Smart money is on us)  and we close with the Backroom Band Reeling in the Year.

Episode 191: “Christmas Eve, In the Drunk Tank”

Show Notes Episode 191: “Christmas Eve In the Drunk Tank”

This week Host Dave Bledsoe lays out his holiday plans, he hears the Tombs has some killer eggnog made with lighter fluid.  On the Show this week, we are talking Christmas Songs, the bad, the awful and the excruciatingly terrible! (This should be fun!)

Along the way we learn some dubious information about the origins of music, or least the origins of the earworm.  Then we remind you that Dave is a terrible human being and you shouldn’t take ANYTHING he says all that seriously. (Except when he says he is a terrible person, believe THAT!)  Pushing forward we examine the three kinds of Christmas Songs based on the purely subjective standard of hearing them eight millions times in four months while working at a Walmart during the Christmas Season.  (Now starting in June!) Finally, we wrap up with the Worst. Christmas. Song. Ever. (And the competition is stiff for the title!)

Our Sponsor this week is our season favorite Karl Kringles Discount Elf Hut!  We open with the Church of Satan and close with the Chewing on Tinfoil cover of the only GOOD Christmas song! (Also, sorry about the thing that you will soon find out about!)

Episode 190: “Every Step You Take, Every Move You Make”

Show Notes Episode 190: “Every Step You Take, Every Move You Make”

This week Host Dave Bledsoe takes control of his personal data only to find he is so boring no one is even interested in buying it. On the show this week, we dig in to how your life is up for sale and what you can do about it!  (Turns out, not one damn thing.  Spoiler Alert.)

Along the way we learn how once upon a time, everyone was pretending to be someone else on the Internet,  (Cybersex was the dirty new frontier!)  and when we all decided to get REAL about privacy online.  (Right about the time the RIAA started suing people for using Napster.)  We learn how Google and Facebook are tracking your every move, even when you are on the toilet.  (They are also tracking your colon health via your bathroom fart sounds!)  From there we learn about the illusion of privacy and how the Global Organization of Source Shared Information Pool was collecting it all along!  Finally, we tell you how to truly tune out, turn off and poop in a bucket!

Our Sponsor this week is  The One Ring, the Facebook app to rule them all.  We open the show with Congress embarrassing themselves as usual and close with Hose Grass explaining how online data collection really works!
