    Happy December, Riddiots! We are kicking off the season right with the invention of a brand new seasonal character that we are sure to forget. Not only that, but we've got an awkward interaction at a front door, an unprepared student giving a report, a cocktail at a fancy bar, an IT professional fit for a queen, the unintentional invention of an existing property, and a kid embarrassed of their parent's profession. It's the first #WiddleWednesday of December!

    #175: Answer in French

    Happy day before Thanksgiving, everybody! We know you’re probably in transit to see some people you haven’t seen in awhile and you might be nervous. But don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Adal and JPC have advice for any situation you might run into this weekend. The Clew Crew also does some listener submitted riddles and reinvents some classic literature. We probably make it worse-but we won't say! (we make it worse) Ok! Well. See you later! Bye!

    #174: It's Doorpy!!!

    We get a little slap happy this episode and go on a deep dive of trying to figure out what the best combination of animals would be (accidentally inventing Pokemon along the way). There's also eyeball powers, a kitty doorman and we finally love riddles so much we marry them! Keep that bus at 55 mph and get ready to flex that brain! It's Hey Riddle Riddle! #WiddleWednesday

    #173: On Our Erin's Birthday?

    Today is the day, folks! Our very own Erin Keif (professionally known as Sharon Beef) is turning the big 3-0! And how are we celebrating her? Well, it's a riddle podcast so we'll probably be doing that. Is it a great birthday? No. But this is the real world. It's filthy and it's awful and every day is riddles (which we love) and that's just how it is. Oh, and we've got a lost cause who just might pull through, a quest to find the right words, a corpse with some unfinished business and the greatest prank in the history of the show! Hold onto your butts, it's #WiddleWednesday

    #172: The Riddle Floor

    It wouldn’t be Wednesday without some Riddles! This week we have riddles submitted by listeners, a chess funeral, and the return of Pretzel Jesus and JP Riddles. The crew crew also gets stuck on an elevator for 5 whole minutes. Then Erin remembers the date of a historical event and WILL NOT LET IT GO. Stick around for a conman barber and an incompetent sommelier. Have a great week!
