    #156: Espresso

    Did you order the listener submitted riddles? Well, order up! Here are your sides- two people on a deserted island, and a swan EXPLODING. We hope you like Sharper Image and biting into a Kit Kat without breaking it first because we talk about it a lot. WARNING-JPC had some espresso before this episode so maybe mentally prepare for that.

    #155: Eat at Tootie Poots!

    Sit down and enjoy the menu at Tootie Poots! We have some tantalizing appetizers including Adal's short stories, JPC's F9 review and Erin's drive to LA! For our entree's we have some delicious President heckling, some children doing a very mature Phantom of the Opera production and a biblical take on debt! For dessert? You're on your own. Buy a f*cking cookie at Walgreens or something I don't know. We can't provide EVERYTHING #WiddleWednesday

    #154: Beer Up The Bank Tube

    On today's ep, we tackle the question that has been dangling over our head for the last 3 years. Who is the "Hey" in "Hey Riddle Riddle"? And you're going to flip when it's revealed. All that plus we've got a brand new smash hit musical, a dinner to die for, a meteorologist in the midst of a kink-wave, a brand new spin-off podcast, fun on the family farm, and a regularly scheduled doctor visit. If you're into episode where we sing, this one is for you! Happy #WiddleWednesday

Maybe improv isn’t bad?

So the premise is that they do improv scenes based on riddles. How does this work? Well, if Barry B. Benson from The Bee Movie is to be believed then the flight of a bee defies all known laws of aviation and yet bees can still fly. This is the closest I can get to an apt metaphor, I guess.

Great podcast!

This is such a great podcast! It is the number one reason for laughing by myself on the bus like a crazy person! Plus sometimes they do riddles!

Chrisviadc ,

Current Favorite Podcast!

I’ve been a listener from the start, and I’ll frequently stop whatever I’m listening to when a new episode comes out. It’s funny, imaginative and pretty loose now as all the best puzzies and riddies are solved, it’s well worth checking out!
