Episode 33: S#!t Flavored Night Guard

WI return! Josh starts with another edition of “Ads Suck!”. Is chichier a word? Lance can't even spell it... First question is about limits to owner generosity.

Second question puts Josh and Lance in the witness protection program as we try and determine why someone...


Episode 25: Brain Injuries Aren't Funny

More WI! Josh interrupts Lance's moving explanation of his Wednesday night fun to bitch about a commercial on PBA. It may explain why Lance laughs when he does...
