Two brothers getting baked and solving the world's problems
Highpocracy 2021 - There Are No Laws in Space
We're back, baby. After a brief hiatus brought on by a minor case of international judicial intervention, we've returned to the studio to solve problems and drop truth bombs once more. From space, this time. It'll all make sense soon, we promise.
This episode, we solve a bumper crop of problems, including the ongoing threat of thermonuclear war, how to get away with deicide, and Hollywood's underappreciated role in keeping us all safe at night.
Plus, we say goodbye to an old friend.
Highpocracy On the Road: Audition
Money corrupts. That's just a fact. But you know what money can't corrupt? Public radio. Because they don't have any.
We're teaming American Public Radio to bring you the freshest, harshest, most incisive solutions to systemic problems the world has ever seen. We power through the importance of providing schools with steady access to natural gas, how your utility company can protect you for bears, and why it's absolutely vital that every American keep an emergency supply of eel porn.
Plus: we visit one really s****y fountain.
Highpocracy On the Road: Tested
The world turns on its axis, the seasons shift around us, and the days grow short. Autumn has come upon us, bringing with it crisp morning air, golden leaves, and absolutely nothing spooky whatsoever.
To celebrate, we're going on a charming drive through the scenic backwoods of West Virginia, where nothing life-threatening or untoward ever befalls anyone. To pass the time, we tackle the issues of Waldo-hunting robots, getting along with your own doppelganger, and why theme parks _really_ don't want you to ride roller coasters while pregnant. And again, nothing horrifying or dangerous happens to us in this episode. That would just be unpleasant.
Plus: we give you the low-down on an undiscovered gem of an attraction that's sure to be a scream for the whole family.
Highpocracy On the Road: Discovered
Everyone knows there's only one place to go when you want to make it big in the problem solving industry. That city of shattered dreams, the jagged maw in the sunken face of our nation's democracy, the Big Turnip itself: Washington D.C.! We're here, we've got big ideas, and we're not leaving until we've found some shadowy bigshots to implant our ideas into like those gross slug things from the kids books where they all learn to turn into animals and do war crimes real good.
To demonstrate our incredible problem-solving prowess, we tackle the big issues: the Philly Phanatic's capacity for murder, mysterious Canadian poop rain, and the shameful under-appreciation of rat performance art.
Plus: we visit DC's scenic Southwest Duck Pond, and boy is it something! It is literally something.
Highpocracy on The Road: Hunters
We've made it down to the Florida Everglades, hot on the trail of the Sunshine State's most engimatic problem — the mysterious, belligerent, and seemingly superhuman Florida Man. Although let down by some substandard weed (hot tip: never score in Carolina), we still muster enough creativity to critique society's old-fashioned ideas about names, tackle the hot-button issue of finger gun control, and work through the logistics of fighting literally everyone at a Chili's.
Plus: we visit the Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp and graciously explain to the gathered psychics why their entire lifestyle is an moral affront that must be stopped.
Highpocracy On the Road: Identity
Highpocracy is dead! Long live Highpocracy... on the road!
It's a brand new season, and there's a whole country of problems out there just waiting to be solved! We're hitting the road in our dearly disowned brother's car to try and track down the worst offenders, and you're all invited along for the journey. You'll laugh, we'll cry, and we'll probably all learn a bit about each other along the way.
For our first stop, we visit the historic Jerseyland theme park to seek our literal fortunes. With the "help" of Jerseyland's Zarthos the Magnificent, we delve into whether racist dogs should be allowed to run for office, why old people hate cosplay, and whether camels are morally obligated to abuse botox.
Plus: we appreciate the erotically patriotic statuary of Atlantic City in our very first Local Strains segment.
Love the goofs
You do you, bros
Listened to a few episodes. New podcasts are always tough I feel like. Happy to see two guys taking the time to be productive at something they’re passionate about. That said, here’s some feedback, take or leave it! I get you guys are getting high, but I feel like there’s a lot of downtime in the podcast or like there’s a delay between when each of you are talking a lot of the time, even with keeping in mind that life moves slower with Mary Jane. Maybe try cutting some in post? Along with that, I feel like you describe what you are going to do for like an abnormally long time before doing it lol, almost as if you are trying to think of what you want to say or how you want to say it? Maybe cut some of that as well. It would let you get to more issues per episode. Keep it up! I’ll stay subscribed for now. I LOVE the super “whatever” attitude in regards to a schedule of when new episodes come out lol. It’s always a surprise.
