EPISODE #50-- Don't expect anything special for our Silver Anniversary show, because we consider every episode to be special. Also, we forgot and didn't plan ahead. Anyways, today we get into it about an unfortunately named donor of, uh, genetic material, some escaped pigs, and a follow up on the Fyre Festival. We also get into it about Amber Alerts, dumb late-stage capitalism, and the pod dog. Also, CORRECTION: The lawyer I talk about at the end of the episode is not Alan Dershowitz. I am thinking about William Kunstler. Totally different people. Plus, Alex's Music Corner! 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 #49-- We're back again this week, bringing you the news that you crave. Today we talk about Hobby Lobby getting caught with its hand in the crypt, selling pancake mix instead of coke, grandma grounding a jet, and the return of Canuck the Crow! We also get into it about Pomona, the origin of drugs in America, the stupidity and the malice of the prison-industrial complex, and when is it okay to make fun of other cultures (probably never, but if you do, make sure that you're consistent about it).

EPISODE #45-- James and Alex start with a harrowing account of driving gone wrong, and then get into the real news: The News. On today's episode they rap about a Mormon cultist brought to justice, a man's flaming underoos, and an avocado. . . WITH A BULLET! They also talk about how creepy religious cloisters are (and listen to James fail to name exactly which one that he's talking about), what's the matter with cops today, and the works of Abe Vigoda. They also cut out a story about that Millwall guy, because apparently he's, surprise, surprise, a racist jerk. Thanks to Sef Joosten for our show art.  Our theme music is "The World's a Mess (It's In My Kiss)" by X.
