Candy store owners dog.

This pod truly is totally rad . Love the members and guests and audience member. They have amazing unique personalities and are very funny. July you need to talk to charmie man to dog. I know he’s put you in a weird position but maybe you could work things out. He might be going through something that is underlying, something he hasn’t talked to you about and is taking his frustrations out by stealing your wife from you. I hope everything works out for you man. Awesome podcast

Totally Ra(mshackle)

Never before have I encountered a podcast with so many people who have no business talking to one another. There’s July, an adult man and candy store owner who also serves as professional audience member, there’s Janine who is somehow both 16 and 14 and serves as band leader, though Alyssa clearly wishes that was her job. There’s Miranda, Alyssa’s intern and resident expert of Dawson’s Creek, who’s not in many episodes but when she is, you’ll know. There’s Ben, an unemployed 37-year old who’s never kissed his wife and serves as Alyssa’s side kick. And then there’s Alyssa, a 16 year old zealot for Christ and aspiring comedian/actress/singer/Christian wife who’s had crushes on every guest they’ve ever had. She has a borderline antagonistic relationship with at least 50% of her co-hosts and manages to turn most of her guests further against god than they were when they started. This show emotionally terrorizes political candidates, co-hosts, guests, and listeners alike and should probably be shut down by child protective services. 5 stars.
