    Ep. #225 - What If You Blasted Bigfoot?

    There were some mighty strange bigfoot encounters in the Pacific Northwest in 1924. Albert Ostman got kidnapped by a family of bigfeet, then tried to kill one with chewing tobacco. Fred Beck shot a bigfoot that tried to break into his cabin, but it just disappeared back to another dimension. 

    Next week will be the last episode of What If? Thank you all so much for listening, supporting us, and goofing off with us for the last four years. We've had an absolute blast and it wouldn't have been possible without y'all. We love you! 

    If you'd like to send us an email or voicemail, do it before 4/13/21, and we'll probably read/play it on the show.

    Ep. #224 - What If You Made Faces At Your Face?

    Eric Mayson stops by to talk about the wonderful world of industrial musicals. From the 1950s through the 1980s, many American companies, including McDonalds, GM, Ford, Miller, Shell, and RCA, produced high-budget musicals about their products. They were never meant for public consumption, but a few have leaked out over the years.

Get to it

Interesting subjects, but have to fast forward through 5-10 mins of painful, totally useless bar babel at every intro. Please just get to the story and quit wasting the minutes of my life with your irrelevant stories.
