I don’t know what idiots rated this less than five stars, but I do know they are idiots.

The most important podcast…

is probably not this one, but if you don’t listen to it then you are doing yourself a disservice, and disservicing yourself just isn’t cool. So do yourself a favor, open up your ear holes and your people soul, and fall into a world created by a mysterious mustachioed man as he kills his friends over and over again in the name of comedic horror. This podcast proves that the bonds of mutual employment and dealing with nonstop crazy situations can often be hilarious and fatal at the same time. So if you’re someone who watches too many crime shows and listens to serial killer podcasts to go to sleep, then consider this podcast because boy howdy do things get bloody. Have a good time, and remember, the safe word is bubblegum tree.
