8 episodes

Comedians Andrew Mercado and Justin Marquez experiment with the podcast form by recording in unconventional places, but their tinkering soon goes awry when every single attempt at an episode is foiled as they are thrust into a near-death situation that threatens their livelihoods. Don’t worry, though. It’s not real. This is actually a narrative podcast. There’s discussions about religion, psychedelics, and the paranormal, among other philosophical and weird topics, and every single conversation is punctuated with a dire threat looming in the background. In other words, this podcast flies off the rails at every turn. It’s goofy, it’s completely insane, and you might learn something in the midst of the chaos.

    Episode 8: The Spiritual Exodus (or an Excuse to Take Mushrooms in the Desert) Part 2

    Andrew and Justin continue their journey through the desert as they become stranded and answer some tough existential questions from comedian April Lotshaw. Join them for a conclusion to the story that serves as less of a spiritual exodus and more of a possible spiritual expiration as both characters wonder if the dangers of their mind will kill them. Sounds scary, but it’s actually pretty wacky. Please send help!

    Episode 7: The Spiritual Exodus (or an Excuse to Take Mushrooms in the Desert)

    Andrew and Justin venture out into the desert for what Justin calls a spiritual exodus, which basically means they find a place to take mushrooms. As they talk about evolution, both characters get lost and find guest April Lotshaw making bacon and revealing foreboding secrets of their minds. But one question pervades the entire episode: How much of this is real?

    Episode 5: Almost Dying Hard

    Episode 5: Almost Dying Hard

    Andrew and Justin are somehow invited to the same holiday party by two separate people, so they decide to record a podcast in the elevator. And again, although it seems safe, a terrorist group takes over the building and shuts down the power, so the duo is forced to find an alternate route out of the building. It sounds familiar? Really? This is an entirely original storyline. Tune in to see if Justin and Andrew make any progress and watch for the second part next week! Also, subscribe and rate us! Thank you.
