Happy holidays and a merry new year! It's 2019 betches, which means we got so many changes coming up (like, one, actually). Dan and I take a look back on our year of podcasting, highlighting the best and worst stories.
We finally move out of China . . . to Russia! We talk about the heroic deeds of a badass lady tank driver, as well as cannibal island courtesy of the Soviet Union. Then we go even further back to the first EDM festival, and my second story is a slight followup to an earlier one about how much I hate call center scams.
Dan's most definitely a Chinese sleeper cell. He just cannot stop talking about the damn place. Thankfully I bring balance to the world of the Odcast, talking about Kenyan marathoners and zebra assassins. Dan finishes us off with the ultimate tale of pettiness.
It's an Odcast first. We're a day late releasing an episode! Pop out the champagne! This week we cover some heavy topics about transgender kids, speciesism, and assisted suicide. Don't worry, though, Dan made sure to bring in some good news about saving the Great Barrier Reef.
Terrible, terrible week for humanity. We've got the Idiot Riddler trying to extort an animal sanctuary, a mother who thinks she's got the social clout to make up names, and vegans feeding their cats spinach. Thankfully, there's a sliver of good as a scientist helps crack down on turtle egg poaching.
We've got three people in the studio this week. Joining us is a tinier, weaker version of me aka my sister. We tackle how much Bill Maher sucks, the stupidity of a missionary in the North Sentinel Island, and loot boxes. Hot stuff this week, folks, so tune in!
This week we tackle the importance of artificial meat lumps for the environment, kids with ODD stealing cars, airline workers being stupid, and Bill Gates's crusade against poor poop sanitation. Also, Dan introduces the world to Ghost Chet.
We finally kick the habit. We're done cussing for good! FOREVER! Tune in as we talk about the origins of Baphomet, Japan's royal bloodline dying out, paraplegics walking again, and the controversial Apu getting the ax.
It's almost time. The moon and stars are aligning on All Hallow's Eve, and the ritual is prepared to summon the Beast, the Dark One, the ONE D! This episode we go over the weird circumstances surrounding the Amityville haunting and the history of some beloved Halloween traditions.
We can never stay out of East Asia, so this week we brought in Kim Jong-un impersonators and China's plan to create a Bond villain-esque moon beam light. Don't worry, though, we ground the episode with Tony the Tiger's assault from furries and poops in SF (again).
I finally brought in a problem that really hits Dan hard: trick or treat curfews. Dan brings us the Witcher and a genuine reason to talk about New Zealand. I close us out with people using stupid animals for emotional support.
It's time to take a trip back--way back--to see if the news was better back in your grandpappy's day. And boy does it not disappoint. We've got the greatest gang of ladies to ever exist, a failed attempt at a hippo farm, killin' emus, and a political "expert's" opinion on Hitler.
There is a rooster, his name is Murray, and he tried his hardest to ruin everything. Other than that, I got some uplifting* news about a fig tree and exonerating the innocent. Dan's finally back and comes in hot with cannibalism and Telltale Games being an SDD.
This is the last special guest episode before the prodigal son returns, and boy is it a doozy. We cover the Waffle House Index, the tyranny of seagulls, Mayan Game of Thrones, and cleaning up the ocean. All this, and Jesus somehow sneaks his way in, too!
It's the episode where my wife finally gets to weigh in on the hot topics of the week. Tune in and get our hot takes on civil forfeiture, being paid to go on vacation, stopping kids from drinking coffee, and the questionable efficacy of probiotics.
This is the first of three episodes with a guest cohost because Dan's off to the land of giant robots! In this episode we got sex boxes, Verizon being shitty (as usual), replacing city lights with mutant light up trees, and the frustration of losing crinkle-cut fries.
This is Dan's last episode before he goes off to Japan forever (jk)! So, I make sure to give him really fun and light topics like racism and God! Don't worry, though, we make sure to bring in some nice stories like stopping suicide and stopping kids from eating dinner.
