EPISODE #43-- We get into it in a family-friendly way this week. Nothing an advertising algorithm can object to. Today Alex and James get into it about bros making an alligator chug, a bad idea for murder in Africa, a singing criminal, and unsolicited cocaine for pennies on the dollar. They also talk about why America sucks, why birds suck, and why bringing back movies from thirty years ago also sucks. Everything sucks. 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 Munchies, LA Times, BBC, WMUR, and Vice.

EPISODE #40-- James and Alex return with an episode that is actually audible! It's exciting! Today on World's a Mess we discuss Russian Orthodox wizards blessing computers, Mormon statue heists, the case of Truck V. Bunny Ranch, and the "Big Penis Defense." Let's see if the filters pick that one up. We also chat about Huell Howser, local insect culture, what Trump acolyte matches what GI Joe villain, and what makes serial killers just so darn attractive? Thanks to Sef Joosten for our show art.  Our theme music is "The World's a Mess (It's In My Kiss)" by X.

EPISODE #39-- I'm not going to lie to you: This is the worst episode that we've ever recorded. Not because of content, but because of the technical side of this. We don't know what we're doing. Some good stories, though, such as: Sean Spicer getting left at home, a Florida man trying to neck a rattlesnake, a truck plowing into an unfortunately named company, Neil Armstrong's stolen moon bag, and the clowns-- They're back and they're out for blood. We talk about other stuff. Allegedly. I can barely hear most of this episode. Thanks to Sef Joosten for our show art. Thanks to Andy Kneis for our them "Sean Spicer Road." Our theme music is "The World's a Mess (It's In My Kiss)" by X. Thanks to our sources at AV Club, CNN, Associated Press, NY Daily News, Vice, and Denver ABC7.
