EPISODE #24-- Due to the fast moving nature of the news, we've decided to dedicate an entire episode to the strange and terrible death of Kim Jong-Nam, the Billy Carter to Kim Jong-Un's Jimmy Carter. We also dedicated it to proving that we don't know JACK DIDDLY about the greater Korean area. But, again: We're learning. This is a weird one. It's a dark one. It's the North Korea one. Thanks to Sef Joosten for our show art. Our theme music is "The World's a Mess (It's In My Kiss)" by X. Thanks to our sources at the Guardian, BBC, Vice, Netflix, and CBS News.

EPISODE #23-- James and Alex cannot be stopped by broken computers, floods, hangovers, or even stairs! We're an unstoppable news team and we are bringing hot scoops of info to your gullet. OPEN UP. Today we discuss feces, falcons, fear (of stairs), and getting wicked high at church. We also delve into Sean Spicer, when it's okay to make fun of bad people, and that you should probably watch Riverdale (now on the CW).

EPISODE #22-- We told you that we'd get over our technical errors! But here we are, back and ready to eff some ess up!
