Arizona and Kansas pass new segregation bills against gay couples and Ukraine is exploding, which means everyone gets to pretend like they know things about Ukraine. Logan joins me to talk about all this plus Space Jam 2.
Bill Nye the Science Guy debated a derpy creationist and while it was funny, it probably helped save his derpy creationist museum. Good old science man Tinz is back to help me figure out just how easy it is for dumb people to become scientists. We also talk about the new villain on Jeopardy and reflect on Super Bowl XLVIII.
Rashawn Scott is here this week to talk about SNL’s newest cast member Sasheer Zamata and what it’s like to be a black female comedian in a sketch/improv world dominated by goof-ass white guys. We also talk politics, why white people don’t get to say the n word, and much more!

Mike Norris returns for the last podcast of the year! We talk affluenza, Christmas, Pope Francis, Chris Christie, the arrest of an Indian diplomat, and why we’re thankful for our shitty new budget.
Episode Breakdown: (Runtime: 35 minutes)
0:00 Affluenza. It’s not a disease, it’s observable reality.

17:00 Now that’s how ya pope!
22:30 Diplomat fight time with India.
24:35 Chris Christie may have used a traffic jam on a bridge for a political revenge, which might seem petty if it’s not tickling the cockles of your corrupt Chicago heart.
It’s been a hell of a year, gang. Thanks to everyone who has listened and helped me try to make sense of this world. Expect regular new episodes onward into 2014.

If only Vengeful Hipster Villainry were just the sweet-ass name of me and Mike Haverty’s two person band. Sadly, it’s a pretty apt description of reality right now. Healthcare.gov rolled out to a sucky start, which means Republicans had a productive couple of weeks bitching and not passing laws, not unlike hipsters hating on something they briefly loved back in the 90′s. Except instead of get fired from their jobs, they get handed bags of casg. We also pay our respects to Paul Walker, who died at the age of 40 and received a traditional Internet funeral.
At one point in the podcast I reference a book whose title I can’t remember. It is Do Not Ask What Good We Do. You can click that link to buy it, but you probably don’t want to read it because it’ll anger your brain.
Episode Breakdown: (Runtime: 40 minutes)
0:00: Repealing Obamacare Chapter 60,000: Websites can never be fixed
19:32 Filibuster? More like Fili-nuh, sir
31:08 RIP Paul WalkEverybody get ready to make some shitty jokes!
Mike Haverty drops by and we discover that men’s rights activists are pretty funny when you strip away all the sadness, Russell Brand didn’t start a revolution last month, and the Internet hates Bitstrips. Like…really really hates Bitstrips.
Episode Breakdown: (Runtime: 36 minutes)
0:00 Men’s rights activists hate feminists because they’re too sensitive to direct their frustrations at other men.
14:53 Russell Brand didn’t start a revolution. Why voting for “Big Ole Veiny Dick” is more effective than not voting at all.
23:30 Bitstrips are almost as bad as the Holocaust. At least according to my Facebook newsfeed.
America’s batshit crazy girlfriend thinks the country is about to break up with her, so now the government is shut down. Mike Norris joins me to talk about what could make the hurting stop. We also discuss spoiler etiquette on Facebook post-Breaking Bad finale.
Episode Breakdown: (Runtime: 37 minutes)
0:00 The shutdown is as funny as it is terrifying
14:13 The Republicans win their battles by becoming Walter White
25:08 I want to openly talk about Breaking Bad without spoiling it for everyone. Get working on it, Facebook.
Tinz stopped by this week to talk about why Buzzfeed is simultaneously garbage and the future of the Internet. This week’s episode is brought to you by various terrible companies that sponsor podcasts.
Don’t laugh. Somebody’s gotta pay to keep the lights on.
