Legalizing Marijuana

We talked about the PROS and CONS of legalizing it and it's a hot topic but no matter what side of the coin you fall on, it's a big issue that gets clouded by so many things and in this episode we make it clear that we're talking about the average user that uses it...


Catch Up & Preview

We took a break over the Summer...we needed it. We'd been going hard for over a year and it was time to step away...

What the Fetish?

Have you heard about the latest fetish? We hadn't heard of it either so we had to investigate and of about it. We started the show talking about it. Then we moved on to some of the oldies that many people engage in. For some people it's a psychological NEED when it comes to fetish play. This show is really just the tip of the iceberg of what floats people's boats. But it's all good, right? Listen and let us know if there's a new one we haven't heard about by visiting our...

Gun Control

In the wake of the Las Vegas shooting and because we like to tackle the tough topics, we decided to have an honest discussion about gun laws.
