EPISODE #56-- Sorry for the delay, but we're back with more news that has nothing to do with the real world, because man, it is a goshdarned mess out there. Today we tackle Bon Jovi or however you spell that avoiding Chris Christie, a bear murdering a bunch of dumb sheep, and a pilot who maybe watched Twelve O'Clock High too many times and learned the wrong lesson. Follow James on twitter @kislingtwits and Alex @giraffetermath.

EPISODE #55-- We're doing it. Irrelevantly, irreverently doing it. This episode is a bit longer, but we had a lot of fun making it. So sue us. We hit on: Cryptocurrency, Magic: The Gathering: The Stabbening, high octane full-leather coffee, and smuggling cobras. Don't do any of this. And other junk. Follow James on twitter @kislingtwits and Alex @giraffetermath.

EPISODE #53-- Today Alex and James rap philosophical about news that doesn't involve horrible Nazis marching in the heartland of America! Instead we talk about a plane shut down by a fart, an 86 year old that still runs the jewels, drug smuggling, and weird snake collectors. We also talk about bad towns in California, Sterlin Hayden, Poirot, and Killadelphia. Follow James on twitter @kislingtwits and Alex @giraffetermath.

EPISODE #51-- News isn't always fun, especially when it involves Earth's favorite would-be mermaid. Beyond that Alex and James report on a couple in Batman couple being shot by the police, "slime eels," more bad news about dumb drug dealers, and NASA V. THE MARTIANS. Are you man/woman/nonbinary/agender/other enough to handle it? Of course you are!
