Why not grab your coffee (or something stronger) and pull up a chair?

SAYS WHO: it's not a podcast—it's a coping strategy.

Heathcliff! It’s me!

Maureen was such a fan of the Worst Idea Of All Time podcast that she stumbled backward into the same concept, but here, each season lasts four years.

It’s more of an ill-advised blood pact than it is either a podcast or a coping strategy.

We live in the basement of a burned down Arby’s, and these are our preachers.

We like the preachers, and they choose to keep us warm.

It’s Simply The Best...

...podcast ever. If you can breath normally at the end of it, you weren’t paying attention. See you tomorrow!
