096 – The Entire Country Would Become The Damn Joker

Play

Folks, we may be stuck at Pokémon HOME for the foreseeable future but you can’t deny that soon we’ll be Pokémon Laughing All The Way To The Polls! Join Sara, Val, Matt and the triumphantly returning Caroline for a definitely not pre-recorded livestream because they have all definitely still been alive for the past week. The celebs are at it again, animal crossing stonks are the only ones that matter anymore, and most importantly we reveal the official ice cream of the show. Also they talk about Joe Stories and him being dead a lot but they never say “Joe”st Stories so this is just me punching it up in post. Enjoy!

Featuring: Caroline, Matt, Sara, Val

Can we get some Fs in the chat for the bevy of presidential hopefuls who suspended their campaigns last week? Can we ask ourselves which other adjectives can be used to describe a Tuesday? Can we abolish a country that’s really just three mining companies in a trenchcoat? We’ll take your lack of response as a yes.

011 – King of the Beach by Wavves (8.4)

Play

Content warning for drug usage, but you probably already knew that if you’re listening to an episode about Wavves.

We’re back with the ultimate statement of skateboard-surfer-stoner-slacker culture, King of the Beach by Wavves. We talk about such things as owning two copies of the same album, horses with no shoes, convertible balloons, and Dananananaykroyd. We don’t know what business Nathan Williams is in nowadays, but I’m sure it’s a valuable contribution to society.
