    178 - Colin Quinn is WILD!

    178 - Colin Quinn is WILD!

    Happy Thanksgiving Cuzzies! The great Colin Quinn is in the studio!!! What are the guys talking about today? History of music, Ancient Greece, Thanksgiving? No! The boys are going to talk about Colin’s new book he wrote during quarantine called, OVERSTATED: A Coast To Coast Roast of the 50 States. Yanni and Chris read and listened to his book and ask Colin questions about his book. But he wasn’t ready for all these questions. 

    Did you know that the Electoral College was invented in Connecticut? Did you know that Rhode Island’s technical name is Rhode Island and Providence Plantations! We are the United States of America, not united people of America! Louisiana and Delaware are ON NOTICE for being shady! 

    Colin is also here to plug his new HBO Max special/documentary COLIN QUINN & FRIENDS: A PARKING LOT COMEDY SHOW where Chris also was apart of. Do you think he bombed?!

    The boys have a great time, even stop to eat some New York pizza that might not have been 10/10. LISTEN AND SHARE WITH YOUR CUZZIES

    177 - The Uncomfortable Truth About Gandhi

    177 - The Uncomfortable Truth About Gandhi

    The guys are back in the studio and it’s another episode of going wild. New game show idea: Hyenas talk and people bet if certain things they say are true or not. What do you think Cuz? We love it!




    This episode is about Gandhi and there are a few UNCOMFORTABLE truths about this Cuzzie. One of the most peaceful guys around, Ghandi was a civil rights leader from Porbandar, India. After living in South Africa and experiencing apartheid, Ghandi returned to India to gain independence from British rule.

    The kid liked to walk around half naked and promote the revolutionary idea that you can fight for something in a peaceful way. As you may know Gandhi was jailed for organizing protests, boycotting courts and more. He would even protest by refusing to eat for days. He famously protested the British salt tax and embarked on a month long walk to the Arabian Sea with thousands of people. And won! What a guy! But he also did some not good things. For example Gandhi believed in practicing celibacy and would “test” out his ability to refrain from lustful urges with young girls. GA-ROSSS! Listen to the full ep and hear how WILD he was and Gandhi’s enemies were too!

    176 - Joey Diaz is WILD!

    Joey Coco Diaz is finally on the East Coast, where he belongs

    We do things a bit differently here on this side of the country and he’s a happy kid. Recorded a day before Election Day, Joey shares with Chris Distefano and Yannis Pappas that he can’t vote. Make no mistake, Joey and Chrissy D bleed east coast Cuzzies with their accents!

    Joey is so happy to be back on the East Coast and shares his true feelings about his time in Los Angeles. He knows that Comedy Central and Quibi are done, they’re saying the same thing over and over again. According to Coco, they lost their credibility, sleeping on Chrissy D, Yanni P, Tim Dillons, and others!

    Being that Joey is a Cuban kid, he suggested talking about the Cuban Missile Crisis. He doesn’t know much but asks the boys to teach him about the day the Cold War almost turned into a Nuclear War!! WILD.

    Joey will be back soon in the studio to talk about history and how it’s like being on the East Coast. Excuse the Wifi, Hyenas, AND Joey D’s internet went out at the same time, crazy Cuz!

    175 - The Electoral College is WILD!

    175 - The Electoral College is WILD!

    It’s an F&B History Hyenas Halloween! The guys are late with celebrating but, hey they’re wild, just like the things they say in today's episode! Recorded a day before Election Day, Chris Distefano and Yannis Pappas discuss the Electoral College and how we are the only country that votes this way.

    Chris is dressed up like Colonial Chrissy and Yannis is a Hyena fan, our guy Richie G! What’s going to happen, are we going to get sold to China like Chris says or get 4 more years of Donny T?! It is Biden vs. Trump and baby it's hard to say right now who is going to win!




    It’s hard to say because people are just horrible! They need celebrities to get naked in order to vote?! I mean come on people what are we doing?! But really, what are we doing? Should we still have the electoral college? It’s a system created in the 1700s and people have been trying to get rid of it as it is based on slavery. How do we fix this? Be like Elsa and just let it go? Should we have a popular vote? Politics are hard to understand, but the boys try their hardest to break it down! But let's be real DON'T EXPECT TOO MUCH HISTORY CUZ THEY GO FULL HYENA!

    174 - History of the Comanches w Shane Gillis!

    174 - History of the Comanches w Shane Gillis!

    As Yannis Pappas is waiting for Beba Pappas to come into the world, we have the great Shane Gillis on as a guest host! Boys get straight into cars and how that the only dope thing about Christopher Columbus was that he rode into the Americas with wooden ships. Named after ladies that definitely did not have any fumare! Guys are talking Native Americans again and if we think that the holiday should be renamed to Indigenous Peoples’ Day brought to you by Christopher Columbus. Thoughts Cuzzies?

    Shane just finished a book from Joe Rogan’s reading list and came through to discuss badass Native Americans: The Comanche. The Comanche were from the Great Plains, which is considered Colorado, Kansas Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico today. They were some vicious dope horsemen that did some brutal things. In fairness, the settlers did try to take their land, so many raidings from the Indians and the new settlers that became the Plains Indian war starting in the 1850s. One of the most WILDEST stories was from Cynthia Ann Parker, a settler who was kidnapped in 1836, at age 10, by the Comanche war band. She lived with the Comanche people for 25 years learning the Comanche ways and forgetting English altogether. What is even WILDER what happens when her white family raids her tribe 25 years later? Be sure to listen to that story Cuz!!

    Chris Distefano tells Shane that he just got back from Salem, Massachusetts and he feels that things in 2020 are beginning to mirror what is happening during the witch hunts of the 17th century. For example who is going to be canceled next? They give props to Bill Burr’s monologue on SNL and that it was hilarious. He was doing what he does best, just tell jokes.

    Another great episode from da boys! Leaves you wondering: will you vote? Which way? Does it matter? Nothing matters. The only thing that matters right now is that you go to patreon.com/bayridgeboys and check out the WILD shit going on over there.
