Mike Hale and Jesse Farrar comb through the crowdfunding dumpster to tell you what projects are worth supporting with your hard-earned dollar. So far, it's been absolutely nothing, but whether it's a social media website for dogs, a toilet brush that reminds you to drink more water, or 5,000 offensive card games, maybe something will eventually be good!

    Episode 357: Beauty and the Feast

    What more could be said about Episode 357 that hasn’t already been said…Well, for one thing, I suppose we must note that Webster’s Dictionary defines Episode 357 as “The Episode that takes place in between Episodes 356 and 358.” Interestingly, this Episode would go on to become one of the many episodes of YKS released for public consumption in the year 2024. Well if that doesn’t beat all! But what made this episode of YKS so remarkable? An inscrutable lifestyle brand? A stupid f*****g sculpture? An actual fascist militia fundraising on the stupid spinning top and board game website? Whatever the case, it certainly has gone down in history as one of the things you can hear on your phone. Which you can start doing…now! Now that you’ve read the description of the episode which you always do first. Thanks.

    Episode 356: Circus World After Dark

    Episode 356: Circus World After Dark

    Are you ready to challenge your understanding of wealth building and market dynamics? Imagine for a moment, what if everything you thought you knew about markets was wrong? Well honestly, it probably f*****g is. I’m so stupid I thought a baggage service that took my bags from the airport and delivered them to me later was good. I thought a stair-vacuuming robot was worth several million dollars. I even thought there should be a paintball gun attached to a security camera that shot anyone who walked near my house. But of course, I was wrong. And that’s why I’ll never become The Market Genius. Will you? Listen to this episode to find out!

    YKS Premium – with 750 hours of exclusive, ad-free content available, there has to be at least a few good ones, right? Well, our thousands of satisfied customers can’t possibly be wrong! Or dead with credit card numbers still functioning. There’s no way, right? That would be insane. Anyway there is a ton of stuff there that’s good to hear. I think this week we may even get an update on our of old favorite “jokey” sites…It’s JokeBlogger if you don’t remember.

    Episode 355: It’s McHappy Day

    Episode 355: It’s McHappy Day

    We're a Christian Youtube channel that creates nursery rhymes! Just kidding. We’re a comedy show that you can listen to when you are sweeping up the floor or folding a towel and going “ah crap that looks stupid” and then folding it a different way. But really, at the end of the day, does it matter what the towels look like when they’re just gonna get dragged all over your butt and stuff anyway? Something to think about. Perhaps while listening to a show!

    On today’s show – ah, there’s that word again – we have an item that can both style AND color your hair at the same time, an app that lets you review someone as just like a person, and probably one of the craziest things I have ever seen to boot! Sounds like quite the “show”! And yet, you have to “hear” it. This crazy language of English…it always finds a way to entertain. And so, I hope, do we. Don’t email us if we don’t, though.

    Episode 354: 6 Nights at Crazy’s

    Episode 354: 6 Nights at Crazy’s

    Oh! Hey! Good morning! Afternoon! Evening! Night! I hope you’re having fun listening to the show! That’s annoying, huh? Sorry. I thought it might be kind of cool to start off the episode description with a kind of singsong chant. But you hated it. And now you’re mad. I’ll just have to make it up to you with a cool! Classic! Ep of the show! When will I stop chanting, I bet you’d like to know!!

    On this week’s episode of the show we got a way to track your dog’s heart rate, a device that helps you carry six beers (what would you even call that??) and a cock ring. That’s it, really. It’s just a cock ring. And you know what that thing’s all about. But we’re willing to tell you even more. And we don’t chant about it. On an all-new episode of YKS!

    Episode 353: Eighteen Moths

    Episode 353: Eighteen Moths

    This is going to be a short description today because the delivery guy came to the house at 6am and startled my dog, who went crazy and woke me up. I didn’t ask for the thing to be here that early but that’s okay. I should know better than to order stuff. Or have a dog or go to sleep or any of that stuff. I look stupid now. And I feel quite stupid as well. But, I do have my item. And I love it.

    On this episode we got a nice way to mangle your hands that doesn’t even require your hands to do it, a doorbell so stupid not even I want it, and a mind-reading guy inventing a card game. There’s 3 other ones also, which makes sense if you’ve paid attention to the show at all. Although it is my understanding that many of you use it as a sleep aid, so, nevermind. Wake up asshole it’s a package!!

    YKS Premium – It’s basically what we’re doing every time you knock on the door and we say “Go away! Leave us alone! We’re not doing anything!” Last week we went to a Simpsons pop-up and had a normal amount of fun at it. And who knows what we’ll get up to next! Maybe another kind of pop-up!

    Episode 352: Laptop in Car! Laptop in car!

    Episode 352: Laptop in Car! Laptop in car!

    Elegance in your palm! Elegance in your palm! We all crave it, and we’d all do anything to have it…but would we spend $28? Perhaps not. On today’s show we answer that question and many others, up to and including, “Laptop in car?” and “Why do they call it oven when you of in the cold food of out hot eat the food”! Plus, JF takes his rightful L. What a pathetic excuse for a man. Let’s light his ass up, by listening to today’s episode!

    Need more of that YKS shit in ya life? I recommend subscribing to YKS Premium! I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t good, and I would absolutely lie to you in a heartbeat, but luckily at this time I don’t have to. The show is just that damn good. Last week we had on the great Howell Dawdy, and even though it seems like between this voicemail and the the premium episode that we are becoming dangerously Howell-obsessed, they were recorded like a month apart so it’s totally normal! Howell shows off some of his collection of freaks, which we love to see, and I daresay we even learn a little along the way. But that’s just Howell’s way.

A podcast that’s good

It’s a podcast that’s good. I forget their names but they came up with a good idea, they are funny and interesting and relatable and just, it’s a podcast, you should listen, OK?

Hats off to this funny guy

Jesse Farrar and his AI generated co-pilot “Mike Hale” weave you through the complicated thread of scams and buffoonery that make up the online platform known as “Kickstarter.”

To my two beautiful and accomplished sons, Mike and JF: You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go. Love, Your Dad
