    Episode #138 - What's the most perfect thing about Maddox?

    This is it, our farewell episode! And it’s our biggest episode to date, with tons of guests and callers, including some surprise guests! This show has been an immense pleasure to create over the years, but like all good things, it must come to an end. This has been an amazing experience that has let me meet hundreds of fascinating people from all walks of life, from rocket scientists to professional wrestlers, I have deep gratitude for everyone involved.

    My sincere thanks to everyone involved, and if I forget any names, it’s not intentional. Thank you to my long-time friends and co-hosts, Ron Babcock and Rucka Rucka Ali. Ron has been an incredible friend over the years and has genuinely improved my life in countless non-trivial ways. I can’t thank Ron enough for his support on and off the podcast, his good character, candor, jokes, empathy and deodorant. My sincere thanks to Ron for being a great co-host and a great friend. And speaking of great friends and co-hosts, thank you to Rucka Rucka Ali, who makes it back for this final episode. Rucka is a powerhouse of reason, principal and intellect, as well as a genuinely good person. Rucka has also improved my life in significant, non-trivial ways, from encouraging me to work harder, to challenging my world views. He’s supported me on and off the air and I couldn’t be more grateful for his friendship and ball-busting. Rucka rides hard because he cares and I’m proud to call him my friend. I couldn’t have asked for two better people to work with.

    Thank you to Mikey Bolts, audio engineer and all-around good guy! I love Mikey and so do you. I’m humbled by his talent. And speaking of talent, thank you to Taylor Nikolai, whose presence and friendship has been genuinely enriching in my life. Taylor is just an incredibly kind, sincere and forthright person who has also improved my life in countless ways. Thank you to Dreadmere, Kirk Wilcox, Zack Waldman, Therapist Kelli, Bradley Laborman, Robert Benfer, Christina Hepburn, Jesse PS, Lord Matthew, Mike D, Michael Capes, John Morrison, Jon Schnepp, Smart Mark, Sean Jacobson, Jesse Bias, and so many more.

    Ron Babcock’s (http://twitter.com/ronbabcock) final tip this week is to keep a $20 in your car at all times, and I couldn’t agree more. Also quick update: the deodorant works! I texted Ron the morning this episode came out to tell him that I would 100% use this exclusively if I had an applicator. It’s worth trying!

    Episode #135 - Are fans too entitled? With TJ Peters, Kirk Wilcox

    Episode #135 - Are fans too entitled? With TJ Peters, Kirk Wilcox

    Debate starts at: 3:54. Are fans too entitled? TJ Peters joins Kirk Wilcox for the debate this week. With the conclusion of Game of Thrones and the uproar over the new Sonic design, it begs the question: are fans too entitled? How much can we expect our creators to cater to our demands? The answer is ZERO. But some people on this show don’t agree, and those people have names that don’t start with ’M' and end in ‘addox.’ Plus I inadvertently unveil my new Daddox shirt, and we go down the bizarre world of Space Jam mashups at the tail end of this episode. Plus tons of voicemail shitting on us this week (number is: 1-562-584-7853 if you want to call in). Watch the video version here at Madcast Media Network YouTube channel

    Episode #137 - WHAT'S THE GOOFIEST, DUMBASS REGIONAL FOOD?

    Episode #137 - WHAT'S THE GOOFIEST, DUMBASS REGIONAL FOOD?

    Debate starts at: 18:05. What’s the goofiest, dumbass regional food? Photographer and writer Igor joins Kirk Wilcox, Ron and I for the debate. Ron brings in a sleeper hit from the mid-west: the Juicy Lucy. Part diarrhea, part second base, it’s a sandwich that will impress nobody. Igor’s pick is an all-time Philly classic: the cheesesteak sandwich. Though I’d go a step further and say that the cheese isn’t the worst part of the meal, it’s the mediocrity. Kirk goes hard on Chinese food and Gyros and I bring in a s****y Utah condiment: “fry sauce,” which isn’t a thing. Watch the video version here at Madcast Media Network YouTube channel

    Ron Babcock’s tip this week is fulfilling the promise of last week’s tip: make your own deodorant! Ron made me some that doesn’t have shards of broken glass in it this time. The verdict? Tune in next week to find out.

    Episode #136 - Is universal basic income for pinko commie dipshits?

    Episode #136 - Is universal basic income for pinko commie dipshits?

    Debate starts at: 6:31. Is universal basic income for pinko commie dipshits? First-time guest Brad joins Kirk Wilcox, Ron and I for the debate about “Universal Basic Income” (UBI). The theory is that as technology progresses and replaces traditional jobs for humans (self-checkout cashiers, automated fast food cooks, kiosks, etc), unemployment would go up and traditional jobs would become obsolete. So some politicians have proposed a basic income level that every citizen would get every month. Beyond your UBI, you’d be able to work, but your income would be taxed at 50%. Good idea? Bad idea? Kirk had an interesting idea: pass UBI but eliminate all other government programs (universal healthcare, etc). Watch the video version here at Madcast Media Network YouTube channel

    Ron Babcock’s tip this week: make your own deodorant! Ron made me some, but it was conspicuously laced with broken glass. Nothing stops the sweat like scar tissue!

    Episode #134 - What's the corniest, dipshit wish? With Bradley Laborman

    Episode #134 - What's the corniest, dipshit wish? With Bradley Laborman

    Debate starts at: 5:03. What’s the corniest, dipshit wish? Bradley Laborman joins us for the debate this week. Ron and Bradley team up in a tag-team duo that I describe as “simple.” These guys shit all over me for wanting to be immortal just because I might end up like some weird bisexual vampire, as one does when they become immortal. Plus I simmer down the problem with waffles to its essence: 10% of the bites have 90% of the butter. Watch the video version here at Madcast Media Network YouTube channel

    Ron Babcock’s tip this week is: use lemon instead of salt, you idiots. Stop grabbing for the salt shaker every time your food arrives at the table. Just calm down. Leave a comment or voicemail about the tips if you try them (1-562-584-7853).

    Episode #133 - What's the most garbage breakfast food? Captain Dirk, Kirk Wilcox

    Episode #133 - What's the most garbage breakfast food? Captain Dirk, Kirk Wilcox

    Debate starts at: 7:07. What’s the most garbage breakfast food? Our own Captain Dirk joins Kirk Wilcox for the debate this week about the stupid shit we shovel in our mouths the first thing in the morning. Ron has a problem with cold lumps in his mouth, and while I didn’t get a chance to offer some warm lumps for him on the air, the offer still stands. Dirk is an amazing talent from Madcast Media who does the Super Arrogant Bros podcast. It’s rare to hear a podcast of such high caliber, especially anything gaming related. Give it a listen.

    Ron Babcock has a great tip for people who want to dispatch of bugs individually in their apartment: a vacuum cleaner. I have to admit, it makes you feel like a badass. Leave a comment or voicemail about the tips if you try them (1-562-584-7853).
