90: r/outoftheloop, Gritty is the Peoples' Mascot, and Goblin Slayer reminds us that we still don't get anime

Well hello casual listeners of DYR, how nice to see you again. At this point, our inconsistency is getting comical. People say that the path to success is built by leaning into your strengths, and I think it's safe to say that our strengths lie in designing schedules that transcend convenience, and creating episodes that are virtually impossible for u/itsyerdad to edit in a timely manner. So, here we are, at our best, revisiting one of our favorite evergreen subreddits r/outoftheloop, where...

Hey guys. Obligatory apology for again not posting this podcast on time. But if it makes you feel any better, u/dogboobes is back from Tanzania to talk to us about the civil liberties of robots! We've been meaning to talk about this sub for a long time, but with Houston trying to ban sexbot brothels, and California banning bots that try to be humans, it's a better time than ever to stand up for our half-sentient brothers and sisters of steel. r/botsrights is a cross between sarcastic...

88: r/tulpas pt. 2 with u/ShinyuuWolfy, fake weather news, and u/myfreeday dresses his son up as a pack of cigarettes for halloween

9/21/2018
More
First of all, apologies for a slightly belated episode posting. Let's be honest, we use the term "weekly" very loosely. That said if there was ever a reason for us taking longer than usual to post a new episode, an interview with both a tulpa and their possibly Austrian host is a pretty good reason as far as we're concerned. In episode 87, we dug into the perplexing world of r/tulpas, a community dedicated to coming up with imaginary best friends for adults. This description definitely does...

87: r/tulpas, Paul Flart, and meat spin nostalgia

8/31/2018
More
Hey listeners, we're not above saying that we all get lonely sometimes. We all have tendencies to sulk in the $400/month studio apartment of our mind and wish that we could calm our existential anxiety by just having someone to watch King of the Hill reruns with. But sometimes, that someone just isn't there. Which, amongst other philosophically more important reasons is why Tulpas exist. A Tulpa is the ancient mystical concept of creating a sentient being through mental or spiritual...

8/20/2018

You’ve probably heard a lot about QAnon lately. To some, the QAnon movement is a mystifying right-wing conspiracy led by Floridian baby boomers who would fall on the sword for president Trump to help reveal the ring of Barrack Hussein Obama pedo-pizza loving Deep Staters. To others, it’s basically also that but with aliens involved somehow. And to some, it’s Trump’s team of personal journalists. Either way, it’s a really complicated and confusing political movement built on a group of people...

7/30/2018

Oh how the mighty have...gotten into unnecessary Twitter feuds and called some dude a pedo because he saved some kids from drowning first. To some, Elon Musk is the a real life Batman/Iron Man, building an empire on life-changing technological innovations for the future we all imagine is possible. To others, he's a really annoying capitalist, masquerading as a do-gooder with a quirky creative girlfriend and an weird need to fit in with nerd culture that he clearly transcends. It's hard to...

84: r/finlandconspiracy pt.2, Poe's Law, and u/myfreeday is an Oreo bandit

7/24/2018
More
This week's Internet was overwrought with stories of Putin and Trump's bizarre meeting of the minds in Helsinki, most notably Don's amazing response to the question of whether or not Russia intervened in the election. BUT, was all of this tomfoolery one big slight of hand distraction from the truth, that the home of the meeting "Helsinki, Finland" ISN'T ACTUALLY A REAL PLACE? Wake up sheeple, the Japanese-Russian fishing trade is sweeping the truth right under your normie-noses, and we're...

83: r/ANormalDayInRussia, Post-World Cup Conspiracy Theories, and the Finland Conspiracy pt. 1

7/17/2018
More
When the World Cup final happens, the whole Internet talks about it. So, using the World Cup final as an excuse, u/myfreeday leads us into the world of football conspiracy theories, which then segues into a conversation about Russia's hilariously overt tampering of ordinary laws, which then obviously led to a conversation about the broad weirdness of Russia in general by way of r/anormaldayinrussia. Plus, Papa John has been ousted from his pepperoni throne, and part 1 of r/finlandconspiracy....

82: r/askoldpeople, corn memes temporarily on the rise, and RIP Toys "R" Us

7/10/2018
More
At this point, it's a well-documented part of the DYR brand for u/itsyerdad to hate elders. So, u/dogboobes makes a valiant, and ultimately successful effort to sway his totally rational bias by leading an empathy-packed episode investigating r/askoldpeople; a sub designed to let the youth of today converse with people who have lived through VCRs and ham radios. Sometimes nostalgic, sometimes thoughtful, sometimes sad, and sometimes just goddamn adorable, r/askoldpeople is certainly a part...

81: r/whitepeopletwitter, Unpacking Permit Patty, La Croix, San Fran's Povery line, and Childish Gambino's Possible Thievery

7/2/2018
More
According to the Internet, the Bay Area has an a less-than-elite strike force of middle-aged white woman enforcing laws that don't really need enforced. First, it was BBQ Becky with her totalitarian grip on lakeshore grill doctrine. Now, we have Permit Patty, and her particularly firm interpretation of sidewalk vendor regulation. While both instances were racially charged, they were also cartoonish examples of peak whiteness at work. So, with this episode, we are taking a look at...

80: r/history (kindof) but mostly just Japanese Internment Camps, and Stalk Market Volume 1

6/22/2018
More
Listen. Sometimes, the internet just can't stop talking about politics, and this is one of those weeks. Since we are technically a podcast about the Internet, we thought it was important that we took the time to recognize the elephant in the room, or rather the infant elephant in the border cage. However, instead of just going straight into the belly of the beast, we've decided to discuss an analogous part of American history and dig into Japanese Internment camps by way of a few posts from...

79: r/TheChurchOfRogers, u/itsyerdad Explains Why He Didn't Vote, and Melania's New Nose

6/11/2018
More
For nearly 40 years, America's greatest neighbor, Fred Rogers, taught all of us how to not be buttheads to other people. He was undeniably one of, if not the most kind-hearted person to ever grace our television screens, and in the age of extreme moral ambiguity, his Mr. Rogers is sorely missed. So, with the release of the recent film "Won't You Be My Neighbor?", we take a look at r/TheChurchofRogers, a subreddit dedicated to the moral teachings and ideas of one of the world's greatest role...

78: r/treasure, Ohio's Greatest Fugitive Pirate, and The Government Wants Your Coins

6/4/2018
More
Evidently, 17 billion dollars of lost treasure was recently found off the coast of Columbia, which flies in the face of our assumptions that treasure hunting is some lost art left to the plot lines of Johnny Depp films. However, apparently that 17 billion with a B is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all the cashsishe still lost in the world, so we decided to take a look at r/treasure to get a glimpse into the world of modern treasure hunters. In doing so, we basically discover...

77: r/darkfuturology, Lil Miquela AKA Lil MiQuaaludes, and the Instagram Uncanny Valley

5/15/2018
More
Lately, an Instagram celebrity named Lil' Miquela (pronounced Lil MiQuaaludes) has been in the news quite a bit, and for good reason. Lil' Miquela, despite her insanely lifelike language, posture, and perspective, is not real. Not like "Timmy Thick sociological study" not real, but computer generated not real. Despite this, she's become a fashion icon, Instagram celebrity, advocate, and now pop star, begging the obvious question of whether or not we're fully prepared for the kind of...

5/7/2018
More
There's been a lot of hate towards Kanye over the past few weeks, and for good reason. If you take what he's saying at face value, he announced two new records a few weeks ago, then immediately became an outspoken supporter of Donald J, evidently thinks slavery is a choice, and has generally just caused a broadly annoying stir. However over the past week, Internet sleuths have started tying together some of the cryptic clues in his unorthodox behavior, and have made a convincing argument...

4/30/2018

This was a big week for emotionally disturbed, incel-leaning serial killers. First, some cheeto-fingered Canadian who tried to start his virgin revolution up in Toronto, but instead just sold his private parts to the most dangerous people in the Canadian prison system, the equivalent to jaywalkers in the United States. However, a much bigger story broke on Reddit as a 30 year manhunt came to a close, and the East Area Rapist was finally identified to the glee of r/unresolvedmysteries. In...

4/25/2018

With all the suin' going on these days, it's a great time to be a lawyer. But not everyone has the Skrilla to afford the services of the greats legal minds of today, ie the Texas Law Hawk. Fortunately, r/legaladvice is a great resource for those of us who feel like we could be embroiled in a precarious legal situation, without a clear path out. Or, in our case, a great sub to investigate true stories of the depravity and hatred amongst us. r/legaladvise is a rare and special sub whose...

4/16/2018

Welcome back, us. We've been away for a few weeks, but we're back and ready to fall into a deep, legal, opiate-induced euphoria with all of you sweet listeners. As is well documented on this podcast, we here at DYR (and when I say we, I mean u/dogboobes) have a certain fascination with strange substances, particularly if they help numb the waking reality of this alien simulation we call life. This week, we've decided to take a journey into the latest "drug" craze, Kratom, before our nation's...

3/27/2018

Obviously we all know that everything is a lie and the world is an alien hologram that we're making decisions in against our will, but this week pretty much removed any reasonable doubt. Not only did Cambridge Analytica's involvement in the 2016 elections prove to all of us that we're basically just human excel spreadsheets, but the world's most confusing and alluring low-bro Internet personality, Timmy Thick, was revealed to be none other than a Harvard social study all along. Or was he?...

3/12/2018
More
Now that u/itsyerdad is over his chest cold, we finally get to do the episode we've been teasing for the better half of the month, r/fragsplits. Somewhat like the Reddit Secret Santa, r/fragsplits turns the digital world of Reddit physical by creating a community where different users buy super expensive niche perfumes, then send tiny 10ml to 25ml bottles to "splitees" eager to try these exotic niche perfumes at a much more reasonable quantity and price. As anyone who regularly listens to...
