    Episode 35 – Your Favorite Coaster (expedition) Sucks

    This week Ben and Zach battle the boredom of quarantine as a coaster enthusiast by digging into the coaster content archives and found a classic to provide commentary on. If you’ve heard the show you know we love TPR, we just have a funny way of showing it, so we decided to “review” the TPR coaster expedition volume 1. Don’t have a copy to watch along? No problem, download or stream it for free right here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0k4n0klxo2bsqfn/coaster_expedition_vol_1.mp4?dl=0

Doctor Oz is questionable

Doctor Oz may be a brain surgeon, but he's endorsed so much quackery that it makes your wonder: did he perform surgery on himself and remove his own brain?

Awesome show!

This podcast is great. I’m 34 years old and up until August 2019 I had never ridden a roller coaster out of a crazy phobia I had of them. My wife and kids eventually talked me into some smaller ones at our home park, Carowinds. It took a few rides over several visits and a trip to Disney World in November, but I’m hooked now and can’t get enough. Just got back from Universal Studios and loved The Hulk! Still haven’t been on Fury 325 yet so that’s my next one once Carowinds opens. Keep up the awesome work with the podcast!
