    Hey there country girls and guy, and welcome back to another episode of Useless. This week, Nora and I cover two topics that hit near and dear to our special, country fried, useless hearts. Nora tackles Corn, the midwest special and popular star in many horror movies, and Kevin is doing his best to appease our soon to be rulers of the planet, crows. It's a darn tootin throwdown this week, so tip your hat, dosie-do to your sittin' chair, and buckle up for another Yeehaw filled Useless episode!

    Welcome back to your "regularly scheduled" podcast! This is the second week we have stayed on schedule, so we are basically professionals. This week, Nora and Kevin got to sit back, relax, and let friend of the pod do all the work! Our good friend, Tyler Fugitt, participates in a not so professional interview, and then blows our minds talking about secret mysterious radio broadcasts. Sit back, tune in, and enjoy! 

    Thank you Katie for editing this week, we appreciate you so much 3.

    Gaslight, Gatekeep(er), Girlboss

    Hey there boss babes, and welcome back to another episode of Useless, where you can be your OWN stay at home CEO. All it takes is an initial investment of $300, your first born child, and annoying everyone you went to highschool with to join your pyramid scheme xoxo. Nora and Kevin had a BLAST this week, covering the illustrious Rockin Roller Coast, Cedar Point, as well as a secret ~mystery theme~ (I promise Kevin will reveal it by the end of the episode!). Buckle those seatbelts, hold on tight, and start your own "small" "business" as we take you on another Useless journey! Also, we would like to OFFICIALLY welcome Katie to the show, working as our editor and assisting us with various aspects of the pod!! You'll meet her in future episodes, but everyone give a big shoutout to the reason the pod is able to continue!!!

    God Save The Podcast

    We're back baby! Did you miss us? Just like Taylor Swift, Useless went media dark as we had an impromptu hiatus, but we are back and better as we enter our Reputation Era. This week pour yourself a spot of tea, because this is a LONG one! As Americans, we have noticed a large cultural phenomenon centered around the royal family, so who better than a couple of Useless Experts to do a deep dive on England's Illustrious history of royalty?! (Any UK listeners out there I am so sorry, and feel free to send any and all corrections to our email).

    American Horror Story: Wonka Train

    Hey everyone! Welcome back to Useless! This week we celebrate one of the best holidays, Aprils fools! Nora and Kevin have been feeling a little under the weather, so sorry if our audio sounds a little.... different than normal! For this episode, Kevin discusses Snowpiercer and it's ties to a beloved cult classic, while Nora tells a tale of all the haunted movie sets you can fathom. You've heard of christmas in July, now get ready for Halloween in April!

    Thank you to our dear friends Katelyn and Ben for helping us participate in our April fools episode! Not only did this give them the much needed permission to fully roast us, but it gave Kevin and Nora a much needed respite from recording, as Kevin is drowning in school and Nora is currently moving back to Ohio!!

    How to Plan a Con in 30 Days

    Hey everyone! Welcome back to Useless! This week we really can't CONtain our enjoyment as we CONvey our thoughts on TanaCon and DashCon. With Tana failing to CONsult anyone to help her, and the ball pit being an area of CONcern, we ask ourselves "What Went Wrong?". Yet as we CONtinue to talk about these things, it's still difficult to CONvey why either of these CONventions even happened! (ok, I'm done now, I promise).

    If you like what we do and wanna be on the show, record a short intro and send it in! You can do this either through our email or through the link at the bottom of the description! This week's fan intro is from supporter, friend, and Wanna-Be Bedtime Meditation Voice Over Actress, Julia Button (@Julia_button on Twitter)

Pure Insanity

I have never felt more joy than hearing the chaotic banter between Kevin and Nora. Hyperbolics aside, this podcast will keep listening in due to the well-threaded combination of the intriguing/forgotten/zanzy topics, the modern millennial antics of our two hosts, and the frequent side-tangents that themselves could have been episodes. Highly recommended

A fantastic podcast for anyone that loves factual shows

If you are a fan of shows such as Defunctland or Internet Historian, this is the show for you. Nora and Kevin are the perfect podcast pair in that their energetic personalities, good nature and genuine love for their fun facts accentuate their real-life friendship. On top of that, they always prepare a deliciously extensive amount of fun facts, recommendations, and fun reactions to whatever it is they’re speaking of. Plus, the variations of the topics always keep the episode interesting and never leave the viewer a shred of enough time to zone out, something I had trouble with on other fact-based audio shows since the topics often remained the same. Really, if you have a craving for shows that deep-dive into topics— whatever that may be, as Useless ranges from dolphins to the royal family— come and check it out! Funny, energetic, and altogether extremely well-done. Definitely looking forward to more episodes!

Kevin talks at Nora while Nora takes it

This podcast is a React Video where Nora is very enthusiastic about show-and-tell and Kevin just kinda screams. 5 stars
