Episode 103 - Information Dictation
The cliche that high school will be the "best years of your life" is a cruel farce that has been debunked left and right, yet it still persists. Those years are unquestionably important and formative, but ask anyone (especially teenagers) about their high school experience and most will tell you that shit is pretty rough. Nathan's run through the gantlet certainly fits that description.

Episode 102 - Horse Trample, WY
According to population data from 2016, the ratio of people to horses in the United States at that time was 46:1.

Tonight we're going to get a little bit steamy with a look into the sexual awakening of your hosts.

Episode 99 - Fallout Dan
As we discussed in Episode 88, most kids have a shoplifting phase at some point when they're growing up. Some get stung right away and give up, others run with it until they fly too close to the sun. Our friend Dan and his schoolmates in Evanston found the third path.

Episode 98 - On Becoming a God in Western Oregon
The human mind is truly a wonder to behold. Capable of incredible feats of logic and creativity, as well as ludicrous flights of fancy. But it's also terribly fragile, and it's a tragic cliche that sometimes those who burn the brightest also crash the hardest. Matthew tells the story of one of his friends who might have flown too close to the sun.

Episode 97 - We Don't Give A Cluck
At first glance, playing a show on a commercial chicken farm doesn't sound like an ideal choice of venue. But when you're first starting out, any place with a stage and a PA system is a step above playing shows in backyards and basements. Sometimes you just gotta go where the people are, even if it's Tom Brown's Poultry Farm.

Episode 94 - Fresh Tracks
Hating winter weather as a grown-up is understandable, especially in the northern latitudes. With ice storms, atmospheric rivers, polar vortexes and other awesome sounding meteorological jargon, living in the winter presents some grim challenges. But all that doom and gloom aside, there are moments in the winter that have their own unique magic, and today we'd like to celebrate those times.

Episode 93 - Rustea Appletini
It's not every day one finds a team of coworkers that they get along with outside of work, let alone people one considers family. Once in a great while, that perfect storm comes along and it's amazing while it lasts. It really only takes one person to fuck it up though.

Episode 92 - Cut Your Own Switch
The average person's knowledge of gambling strategy can be boiled down to the iconic chorus of noted sage and rotisserie king Kenny Rogers' timeless epic: You've got to know when to hold 'em Know when to fold 'em Know when to walk away And know when to run But today's guest is not your average person. Our friend Jesse knows a thing or two about card games and strategy, and he decided to put his knowledge to the test with his crack team of fellow nerds on the blackjack table in Vegas.

Episode 91 - Dear Ol' Dad

Episode 90 - Antiwork Part 2
In 1930, John Maynard Keynes predicted that by 2001, technology would have advanced enough to reduce the work week to 15 hours in developed nations. There's every reason to believe he was right, but it didn't happen. Rather than freeing the populace from work, the free market has instead created pointless jobs that diminish our labor, damage our self esteem and keep people locked in poverty.

Episode 89 - Antiwork Part 1
Work is bullshit. The notion that everyone needs to be employed in order to justify their reason to exist is categorically false, a lie perpetuated by capitalist dogma. The truth is, our employers need our labor far more than we need them. Right now there's a lot of people who are taking their power back from shitty jobs, and we salute this movement.

Episode 88 - The Art of the Steal
Most kids at some time or another choose to test the boundaries of our theft laws. Some get caught right away and learn their lesson early, while others may have allegedly gone on a minor crime spree. Either way, once you get clipped for using your five-finger discount, the good times always come crashing to a halt. The consequences, however, can vary wildly. In the juvenile justice system of 1990s Bend Oregon, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: The police, who ostensibly investigate crime, and peer jurors, a panel of shitty kids who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories.

By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes. -Vi Satanism, witchcraft, occult. These mysterious, often misunderstood terms inspire powerful feelings in humans.
