EPISODE #38-- Alex and James fail to get their schedule together once more, but like the less than entirely punctual phoenix, we have risen from the ashes! Today we rap about wild boars attacking ISIS, how British people can't handle avocados, a teacher making meth, and a controversial program in India to stop domestic abuse that will probably just make it worse. We also rap about U2, Dan Fogler, griefing teens in Red Dead Redemption, and weddings. Thanks to Sef Joosten for our show art. Our theme music is "The World's a Mess (It's In My Kiss)" by X.
