Episode 35 – One More Day for Johnny
The last episode of the year is here! JB and Buzz weigh in on some headlines from the week, read your emails, and reflect on the ride that’s been The Sh*t Show.

Warning: This week’s episode is not recommended for children or horses. Buzz really loves The Great on Hulu. JB talks to a psychic who talked to Joe Biden’s dogs. We examine Rudy Giuliani’s public farts. Lou Holtz has the Medal of Freedom and JB has his neck brace. Will the Tiger King be pardoned? Cher saved the world’s loneliest elephant and airlines are banning support animals (cue The Movie Man’s story). Don’t call us – unless you write chicken haikus.

Episode 33 – For Entertaining, Not Complaining
JB sees an ad in the radio trades and gets his airchecks ready to go, plus puts his Misinformation Line skills to work. Mike Tyson is back and ripped, a tow truck driver refuses to help a Biden supporter, a kid busts his mom for drunk driving, and Wolfgang Van Halen pays tribute to his dad. A call to a listener with one arm and no legs should make us all stop complaining! Speaking of complaints, JB responds to comments about the live stream. Buzz wants to bring back the “sombrero of snacks.” And it’s not Thanksgiving without calls to the Butterball Turkey Hotline, scenes and stories from JB’s movie “Thanksgiving Day,” and Patti LaBelle’s sweet potato pie!

Episode 22 – Salute to Super Dave
A salute to Super Dave: Actor and comedian Bob Einstein, aka Super Dave Osborne and Marty Funkhouser on Curb Your Enthusiasm, was one of our all-time favorite guests. He passed away while we were gone and we never got to pay proper tribute, so this episode is our salute to Super Dave! He called in whenever he felt like it and would jump into the conversation with whoever we had on, from Norm Macdonald, Bobby Goldsboro, a turkey calling champion, and others. He talks about his appearances on Curb and tells many jokes you’ll want to remember.
