"Well, it's supposed to be a podcast about amazing stories that lift your spirits... but I think Jack and Kent get drunk before every episode, so I never know exactly how it's going to turn out. It's a little like crap-herding. You know?" ~The Operator

Each episode - three amazing stories. From the weird wizards at 11:59 Media, join The Operator, Jack Luna, and Kent Chungus for their never-daily podcast. The Op tries to keep everything moving in a straight line. But like a drunk chimp, things always seem to go off the rails. They may be imperfect, but they fit perfectly with each other.

Hugs. ❤️

    Can you handle two guys? Telling two great stories? Well, sit back, relax, and take it all in.
    Kent drags us through some terrible people to bring us to a bright and shining example of a great people. And The Op finds a story with so many twists that it makes scoliosis blush.
    Hugs. ❤️

    To Beach Their Own • Un-gifted Program

    The never-daily podcast is back!
    In this episode, Kent and The Op take a whirlwind, worldwide tour, where the whirlwinds leave us dead in the water, and stuck with unwanted baggage. And in true 11:59 Media fashion, we ham-fistedly discuss skin color, road rage, and pizza as a diet. If you love chickens, you'll love this episode.
    Hugs. 🫀

    Steven • Life Preserver • A Poor Kid

    Thugs and drugs apparently rhyme with hugs... so Jack talks at length about them. Inventing a new element to the podcast dubbed "needing a hug."

    In an oddly-unplanned move, we each tell stories about kids. Some are lost, some are moist, and some never seem to grow up. Hugs. ❤️

After listening to some of the other programs, this is some good banter. A lot different then the other podcasts. TCK actually is my fav and dark topic is great but they can all cause nightmares. So a nice break.

Are you finished with the Hugs podcast?

Imagine having a podcast that garners a 4.9 rating on thousands of reviews and you still can’t find a solution to produce it regularly. Smh. Love Op’s content but hate his inability to solve this.

dbjll ,

I want to LOVE this but….

It feels like Op acts like he’s such a great person that is against things like swearing (I know it’s and act) and is a church going all for great things like “hugs” kinda guy, but then does nothing but trash talk Jack who is as real as they come. listening to 911 Calls from day one, and following his productions since, he doesn’t seem so “huggable” when I hear him bad mouth Jack every other episode. Starting to come off self righteous… makes me want to black ball all 11:59, but I LOVE TCK SO much!! Wish TCK would go weekly. Stopped listening to 911 calls a LONG time ago bc the first 30 mins is Op going on and on and on then you get maybe 30 mins of actual content. Op needs to check his ego, he’s brilliant at producing cool content but needs to get over himself.
