15. Hallelujah! It’s Raining Blood!
Bonobo societies, Monster Mashes for the 90s, the Jokester of Dark Knight fame, and little juggalinos—it’s all a part of Cameron and Nathan’s discussion of Riddle Box, Insane Clown Posse’s third album! Join us as we wind the crank and see what kinds of songs play, and as we answer the big questions—like, is ICP the spiritual heir to French poet Charles Baudelaire? Probably not, but maybe!

14. The Ol' Flush 'n' Flesh
Nathan and Cameron listen to ICP’s second album, Cameron invents old-time ICP music, George Washington’s teeth fall out, and Theo has a juggalo birthday. It’s all part of the kooky karnival fun of The Ringmaster! The Ringmaster, Insane Clown Posse’s second album, is a big step up musically from The Carnival of Carnage. It has less misogyny, though there’s still a non-zero amount. It probably could’ve been shorter, though. Listen along to The Ringmaster on Spotify. Learnin'...
13. Crasscinating—Just Not on This Album
Well, here we are… the first Insane Clown Posse album! It’s… not great. We have a hard time maintaining enthusiasm (or staying awake) through the sheer misogyny and arrhythmic rapping. There are a few bright(er) spots, but overall, we’re left wondering: did we make a mistake in picking ICP? Also, will Cameron quit the podcast because Nathan used the word "Crasscinating" for the title of this episode? Learnin’ Links Leck mich im Arschalmost ICPAndy Kaufman, famed wrestlerTracie...
12. Go Tell It on the Merkin: A Very Garf Xmas
Merry Christmas, everyone! It's a very special heartwarming episode dedicated to Garf's very special Christmas album Beyond the Season.

Bonus #1: I See Pee
Say it with us, in a real real spoooOOOOoooky voice: "I WANNA PLAY A GAME." That's right! It's time to choose the artist we investigate after Garf, and what better way than with a horrifying, flesh-rending, gruesome carnival of carnage? Just call Nathan "Jigsaw," baby, cuz it's about to get all Saw up in here. Learnin' Links: Wu Tang Clan Name GeneratorYacht rockMeat Loaf's impressive filmographyR.

11. Bouzouki Joseph
Garth's very last album forever: 2016's Gunslinger. We wish we could say it's a triumphant return to form… but it's more of a flaccid, bland return to form. At least it's not horribly offensive? This is our shortest episode ever! There isn't much to chew on here. Though we do manage to talk about more interesting things than these songs, like a movie that Cameron mysteriously calls Bang Bang Driver.

10. Feeble Little Throw of a Tiny Little Bone
Garth makes a not-at-all triumphant return after 13 years of hiatus with his album Man Against Machine. And boy does it stink to high heaven. Not only did Garf not appear to learn anything in his time away, it seems like he regressed in some important ways. For instance, it appears he's spent the better part of a decade in "the friendzone." We expected better from you, Garf.

9. DJ Dead Dad
Garth Brooks didn't want to make this album. But he did. Because his record label made him do it. After the Great Gaines Failure of 1999, Garth wanted to hide under a rock and retire until 2014. But his word is bond, and so is his contract with Capitol Records to print money. Even for all that, though, it's not even that bad. There are many Garf albums that are worse or more objectionable.

8. Anno Gaines
Today’s the day! Human soul patch Chris Gaines gets his day in the sun as Garth Brooks dons a wig and a smoldering, sexy, cheeks-sucked-in face for his best rockstar playacting. Pucker up your pair of kissable ellipses, because this bad boy is going to soft-rock your whole world. The Garf/Gaines pair is a real Jekyll/Hyde situation… but in the end, it turns out Chris Gaines is actually a lot less fun than we thought he would be. Oh, well. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Learnin’ Links: To blaveBill Clinton...
