Topic was suggested by Heather. Also, this week we are sponsored by SeatGiant.com. Featured Beer: Marathon's 26.2 Brew


No 89: Friends

Friends was about...well Friends, but beautiful friends in beautiful apartments, and one with a monkey. At least for the first season. The thing that made the show work was the chemistry between the six actors which seemed like they were real Friends in real life. It was often criticized as a Seinfeld ripoff, yet managed to stay in the top 10 shows of it's entire 10 year run. Listen as we learn more about the show. Also, this week we are sponsored by SeatGiant.com. Featured Beer: Sierra...

The godfather's of American punk rock with their two minute - three cord songs take over an ailing music scene of the '70s.

No 82: Stephen King

Let's talk about the master of horror, Stephen King. We are pretty sure he has close to a thousand books written...but who is counting?! Certainty not us because we threw out the number a thousand first. King has become the center of what horror and the fantastical world of imagination can produce. King is a pop culture icon. Most of his works have been turned into movies and most of his movies have been turned into late night, popcorn rentals to scare the wits out of your preteen step...


No 81: Riddle Me This

Riddles are fun! OK, maybe they are not so fun...but they are frustrating...and that's something. Right?

No 78: Creepypasta Theater

What is a creepypasta? Well we are glad you asked. Creepypastas are short horror stories and memes that have been written by the internet to be shared around the internet. They are often brief paranormal stories intended to scare you.

Today we find the best creepypastas, and by best, we mean worst...
