Welcome back to No Bad Ideas, the show where we take bad ideas from the real world and try to turn them into good stories (and the points don't matter). This week, Gabriel takes Zach and Sarah on a wild journey to the seedy world of San Antonio aquarium heists. What is the most dangerous thing you could try to steal? And what is the most ridiculous way you could steal it? Plus illegal exotic pet farms, Oceans 11 as a pun now, and the place where everything good was stolen from somewhere...

Welcome back, everyone! New year, same old set up: we find some bad ideas, and then bang our heads together until we've figured out how to turn them into a good story. This week, Sarah infects Gabriel and Zach with the idea behind a truly (and thankfully) one-of-a-kind museum. Plus, much more ado, chaotic agents, and the closest you're going to get to death without actually dying.

Grab your smart phones, boot up your Instagram filters, and get ready for a rom-tragi-com, No Bad Ideas style!

Our first really Not Safe For Work episode, so beware of listening out loud at work. Zach takes Gabriel and Sarah to the world of theater with 100% the poetic irony and pretentiousness you expect, and at least 50% more genitals than you expect. Plus, totally BS fire safety laws, tortured metaphors, and costumes you shouldn't think about too much. Links: Today's Bad Idea™:...

No, you read that right. This week on No Bad Ideas, we tackle a new twist on an old sport that is so, so unnecessarily dangerous, that... we just had to try to turn it into a story.

This week, Sarah throws Gabriel and Zach a curveball with weirdness from the world of sports. The madness metastasizes quickly into unwieldily pranks and conspiracies involving - among many, many other things - so many drones bearing catfish that the sun gets blotted out of the sky in downtown Nashville.

Episode 1: To Death Ray Or Not To Death Ray

No Bad Ideas is the creation of Gabriel Urbina, Sarah Shachat, and Zach Valenti, three writer and artist-types who, in order to stay fresh creatively, have an excuse to hang out with each other once a week, and check in on what they're working on, take a terrible idea they found on the Internet each week and turn it into a compelling narrative. Or as close as they can get in 30 minutes. If you're someone trying to be creative yourself or even if you just appreciate a good story, you'll enjoy...
