Episode 64: “Love the Way You Lie”:
This week Host Dave Bledsoe is done with your bullshit and is here with a big ass shovel and bucket, ready to start scooping. We take a look at the lies the bind, the things we keep telling ourselves as though we really believe them.
We want to tell you this is a fun, happy little show with lots of jokes and lighthearted ribbing, but that would be a lie. It’s angry, bleak and disheartening–kind of like you when you found out the truth about Santa Claus. Like Elvis Costello’s mirror he’s going to tell you things he loves you too much to say any other time. Unlike Elvis Presley’s mirror, it will not make you think sequined jumpsuits are a good idea.
Along the way we discover the horror of naked bathroom selfies, why 80’s pop music is the purest form of wistful nostalgia, the scientific principle behind the Gun Event Horizon and explain the logical fallacy of the customer ever being right. This is not a show to listen to if you enjoy blissful ignorance.
Promotional consideration is brought to you by Earl’s Elite Excrement Expeditors, Earl’s We Get Shit Done! We open the show with the actual words of actual Trump supporters from Buzzfeed’s “No One Knows Anything” Podcast, truer words have never been spoken, we close with really–Eminem and Rihanna can we DO that?
