    Green Beer

    A man steals a flask of liquid luck from a leprechaun, which ends up making its way into some beer, turning it green. Drinking the green beer gives you temporary good luck.

What they don't yet know is there's a price to pay: When the good luck runs out, the pendulum swings in the other direction causing you an equal amount of bad luck.

My go-to podcast! Worth every enjoyable second to listen!

Witty, thought-provoking, and just plain good goofery

Basically the best thing for artists who need to get out of a creative rut. Good goof-off fun for the non-artists too.

A Royal Romp!

These cheeky folks are a breath of fresh air in a world of stale crime sleuth podcasts. Keep up the great work, team!!!
