Bad news is easy to come by. Sometimes it feels like we're drowning in it. But on The Bright Side, our hosts believe that in every tragedy we can also find hope. The Bright Side with Kevin and Jason is a podcast that explores some of humanity's biggest blunders, then digs deep to find out what good we can find in the situations. Join Kevin Held and Jason T. Gaffney as they discover the redemption in our missteps.
#79 – Those Who Slay Together Stay Together
This one is for all the lovers. Well, the criminally sick ones, anyway, which we're assuming make up the majority of our listeners. In 1991, Ray and Faye Copeland became the oldest couple ever to be sentenced to death in the United States, having been convicted of murdering at least 5 men at their Missouri farm. If you're looking for a love story to keep you warm as winter approaches, go turn on the Hallmark Channel. If you want a grisly account of a serial-killer couple, stay tuned.
#78 – Keep Your Nose Clean
Cleanliness is next to godliness. Especially if your dismembered remains are found in a carwash. This week, the guys give the undercarriage of life a once-over, exploring the time, all too recently, that half of a man's face was discovered on the floor of a Montana carwash. You know, so you can escape the gory details of current events.

#77 – Boo, You Whore!
It's Halloween! The one day when it's perfectly acceptable to take candy from strangers! This year, Halloween will of course be a more sedate affair, since we can all agree that 2020 itself has been scarier than anything October alone can throw at us. Nonetheless, the guys are celebrating the holiday by exploring the spooky, kooky history of the grand tradition of haunted houses. Make sure all the lights are off for this one, and don't ever, ever listen alone.
#76 – Who Ordered the Extra-Large Sausage?
You've all been such great listeners, that today we are rewarding you with everyone's favorite activity--a pizza party! Come on a drive-along as the guys explore the frenzied, unsurprisingly sexy, and surprisingly dangerous world of pizza delivery. This week's episode is everything a great pizza should be: hot, fresh, steamy, and cheesy! Enjoy it right when it arrives, or later, because cold podcast is still good podcast!
#75 – Priscilla, Queen of the Coalmine Bathroom
Last week, the guys visited with some of the world's stupidest criminals; this week, they'll teach you how to become one! Of course, to be a stupid criminal, first you need a stupid law to break. That's why this week's episode is a deep dive into some of the weirdest laws still on the books, from how to properly handle a frog who died in a jumping contest, to exactly how much toilet paper you need to have on hand to operate a coal mine. Please enjoy responsibly.

I discovered these guys via a rather circuitous route, first an audible romance novel, then a rom/com and finally this very podcast. Jason and Kevin are hilarious and I am so happy they are back! Talk about a bright spot in 2020.
Please Do A Podcast Every Day!
Seriously, I need the laughs! You two get funnier and your podcast gets tighter every episode. Becuase I am old (for real Kevin, not Jason's version of 'old') many of the topics are things I am familiar with or remember vaguely from the news. But you guys are full of details that I never new. It is amazing how absurd humans are, right? I can tell you really like each other and that makes the whole thing even better!
