EPISODE #19-- Alex and James, still braving Long Beach's worst day of rain EVER, are back at it with the news. Because nobody can stop journalism. We delve into chickn nugget crime, Switzerland's strict citizenship standards, black market donuts, and how much monkeys love deer. It gets a little blue, folks. I also had a good Richard Marcinko joke here that I didn't use. Sorry. Thanks to our sources at The LA Times, The Local, Vice, The Guardian, and the BBC. Thanks to Sej Joosten for our show art. Support real journalism. Thanks to X for our theme song "The World's a Mess." Thanks to Sef Joosten for our show art.

EPISODE #18-- Alex and James dive deep into topics that are actually topical. Namely: When is it right to punch Nazis? Answer: Always. Also, while Mr Spicer and his cabal of dinguses wage war on the free press, we delve into the dark worlds of Norway's reindeer games (ie: slaughters), hermits 4 hire, the King of Britain's parking tickets, and the fact that our POTUS is accidentally quoting The Purge. What a time to be alive. Thanks to the Guardian, the LA Times, Atlas Obscura, The Local, and the AV Club for our stories. Support real journalism. Thanks to X for our theme song "The World's a Mess."

EPISODE #17-- Our episode starts out a bit ranty. Sorry about that. That's what you get for bringing Satan into the mix. And Florida. Besides that, the boys delve into a case of stolen gold, a horse that's high on meth, and a real "rum deal" between Cuba and the Czech Republic. Alex and James also get into LA traffic, the proper use of a goat, and the best/worst traffic jam stories that we know. It's a doozy. Hold your babies close. Thanks our sources at Palm Beach Sun Sentinel, Vice, BBC, Guardian, and La Times. Thanks to Sef Joosten for our show art. You can follow him at http://spexdoodles.tumblr.com/.

EPISODE #16-- Once again: We're back. James and Alex tackle the issues of the day starting with what happens when somebody gets high on meth and gets on an electric shopping cart in a Wal-Mart. We then talk about Andrew WK, Gundam, and more importantly the Vatican's new McDonald's, Australians rampaging on Christmas day, and the ongoing madness of Rodrigo Duterte.

EPISODE #15-- Alex and James are back and instantly launch into DEATH THREAT WATCH 2016 (we have a really bad production schedule). After that, it's a white hot show about ramen for fogeys, reindeer driven pizza, Pennsylvania pizza potshots, improper use of mustard, and the ongoing war on beavers. We got it all. Thanks to Sef Joosten for our art. Thanks to our sources at the Guardian, Grape, WPVI Action News 6, the Washington Post, Time Magazine, and KFOR. Theme song is "World's a Mess" by X from "Under the Big Black Sun." #Pizzagate #NoNoOtherPizzaGate #Japan #Pennsylvania #Pizzasmoosh #Tardigrade #Beavers
