We’re back! After an unplanned hiatus of scheduling snafus, computer kerfuffles, and disease downers, we’re coming in hot with the first in our miniseries on pirates, which is sure to be a fun time without any gruesome or upsetting…oh…oh no. It’s the Harpe Brothers. Steve Vanderploeg is here. Just…content warning for violence, sexual assault, and violence against children. God, history sucks. I’m aware that there are a few audio errors this episode (and new filler theme music). I’m getting a new computer soon, but for now we’re just having to make do and we appreciate your patience. We love he ..read more

CONTENT WARNING: This episode deals with the violence of the Holocaust. We don’t go into graphic detail, but it also can’t be avoided.

Special guest Bridget Callahan joins us, and helps us remember that we are still technically a comedy podcast! Zach, Bridget, and Brian want you to help fight fascism with whatever tools you have (also it’s very late at night and I’m mad so this is in ..read more

Brian opens this episode with an appeal for you to support your local abortion fund. If you’re looking for one, Cobalt is near and dear to our hearts, or you can support the National Network here. There’s like 7 minutes of sad preamble to this episode about Roe, so be prepared for that. We’re back and, y’all, this one is one of our biggest episodes ever! Steve Vanderploeg and a very special surprise guest help us talk about L. Ron Hubbard! Due to computer issues, Brian had to record on a laptop in his kitchen and not the studio, so his audio is a little off, which we hope is not too noticeable ..read more
