Smog On The Nog

Comedy Podcasts >

A weekly podcast with two brothers, Brandon and Jordon, that solely focus on Smoggin each other’s Nog. It’s an endless pursuit of that feeling when you ponder a novel concept, or think about an idea so complex or nuanced that you can’t take a side...or you can take both sides. Or just general confusion and bewilderment. What smogs your nog, doesn’t necessarily smog mine. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try though.
