Don't Wreck Yourself is a weekly podcast about finding truth on the internet. On each episode, we assess a claim wrecking the internet, answer questions nobody asked us, and keep you from ruining your life with bad information choices.
The Gordian Forget Me Not
On this week's episode, Matt and Ryan celebrate a minor production milestone: six months of podcasting. Then they help the desperate souls of Reddit by tackling their most challenging r/nostupidquestions question yet in which the asker would like to become less stupid. Then they plug into a Black Mirroresque story out of the UK that is too graphic and horrible to describe with any level of anatomical precision. They turn their attention to the font of very much not stupid questions again, but this time the question asker is inquiring about what happens when you put a grenade in a microwave, and we answer the question because we don't think anyone is smart enough to decode what we want. Finally, and possibly forever, they discuss meme reports about QR codes going up on Japanese gravestones.
Cannibalism and the Art of McFlurry Repair
This episode has it all, a cool place for fat bears to hang out and dine in luxury, aliens eating factory farmed humans, humans eating humans because vaccines don't come in pills, and a guy who literally blew the literal lid off of the conspiracy around why so many McDonald's locations can't keep their McFlurry machines working.
Lawyers, Bats, and Other Inflatable Rats
In this Episode, Ryan forces Matt to describe a recent stint of misfortune for your entertainment, then Matt brings up a user correction of a fact that Ryan misremembered in a clear retaliation. Then Matt walks us through a question from Reddit's now infamous r/nostupidquestions regarding how bat babies get born. Well, when a Batwoman loves a Batman very much... Then Ryan raises issues with career advice from the internet. Matt then goes on to talk about Scabby, the ubiquitous labor union mascot that pops up outside non-union job sites. Finally, the guys return to Reddit to figure out who alive today will be remembered in 500 years.
Tick Talk With Shakin' Shaner
In this episode, Matt and Ryan are joined by Shakin' Shaner from the What's Shakin' With Shaner Podcast, a geek centric podcast that dips its toes into the strange and absurd. Ryan opens up the discussion by attacking Matt and Shane's conclusions from Matt's guest spot on Episode 11 of What's Shakin' With Shaner. Then they discuss a geologist's theory that the Great Sphynx at Giza is actually about 5,000 years older than everyone thinks, before moving on to an r/nostupidquestions topic that seeks to know how the government would deal with a real life Joker committing acts of terror, giving Shane the chance to flex his nerd muscles by introducing The Comics Code Authority, a very real life governing body that DID deal with the Joker, Batman, and every mutant or alien who ever slipped their underwear over a pair of tights. Finally, they discuss an image circulating on reddit that shows a tick that seems to have a tick... which segues into a conspiracy theory regarding a mysterious government facility on Plum Island.
Abracadabra! Urine a Baby Race!
The guys delve into a user question about a common idiom with deep anti-Francophone roots, then they dispel some myth around the magical ability of careless witches. After that, they discuss the health risk and environmental concerns surrounding roadside bottles of pee (don't worry, they tell you how to get rid of it too). Finally, they cross the finish line with a passionate discussion of the sometimes underground sport of baby racing. Spoiler: it's only illegal if you race for slips.
The Vampire Mines of Arizona
On this week's episodes, Matt and Ryan uncover everything the government doesn't want you to know about Xanax addicted, Ketamine peddling, Yakuza tattoo artist furries fighting the Islamic State in the streets of Lima Peru. If we're being honest, it's mostly stuff the government doesn't care if you know... but you'll learn all the same. Then they issue a declaration on a query posted to Reddit's AITA forum that strips away layers of deception, dances around the issue, and ultimately grinds out some solid relationship advice for all the a-holes out there. Then they weigh in on a question of sexual attraction, and finally round out the episode discussing a political crusade against alleged vampire dens in America's Arizoniest state.
