Completely Seriously

Culture

In the pre-Avatar, post 9/11 world of the early 2000s, three friends met in the single hallway of their tiny Texas Christian highschool. Mark Dolph, Jose Treviño and Joseph Richardson immediately hit it off over their shared love for the lowbrow, the highbrow and the mediumbrow. Later, Marisa Treviño– yes relation– made their tripod into a quadropod. Since then, few have consumed and discussed random popular culture with as much rage and gusto. They decided to turn these weekly discussions into a podcast. Whether they’re inane or insane, bitchy or bewitchy, these four will always be Completely Seriously.
