Your Kickstarter Sucks

A podcast about terrible ideas

Useless robots, minimalist shoes, and "offensive" card games up to the friggin' Pope's stinky eyeballs! (Ewww!) That's crowdfunding in a nutshell, but it's also our modern world - a vast creativity desert, populated almo

Episode 172: Kick It Under The Fridge

Too Many Doggos? Is there EVEN such a thing? Well, some Fun Haters around the web think so. Let's get em!! We will be spending as little time as possible on Reddit-like terminology such as that, and as much time as we can possibly justify on why I'm right that all chain pizza is scientifically indistinguishable. Plus, we've got the next generation of Ice Cube Technology, a thing seemingly designed for fast food guys to review shit in their car, and a movie that manages to be so stupid that it's not even funny to watch. And finally, the return of an old friend. If you're used to falling asleep to the show or not listening all the way through because it's too boring, or leaving it on for your dogs while you're at work, change it up this time and catch the whole thing. I wouldn't lie to you. I swear to god, you gotta believe me! Music for YKS is courtesy of the Hell Yeah Babies, Craig Dickman, Howell Dawdy, and Mark Brendle. Additional research by Zeke Golvin. YKS is edited by Producer Dan. Exec Producer PBostrom.There are a lot of podcasts out there but they all seem to record indoors. What's up with that? Well comedians Andrew Michaan and Cole Hersch have figured out a different way to do it: Outside. Check out their show Podcast But Outside to see why the way we're doing it ay YKS (indoors, not even close to each other, barely paying attention) is a relic of the past. And if some indoors podcasting is still ok with you, we have had a great month of YKS Premium over on the Patreon feed. Come join us before Miketober is all finished up and you'll get to hear up to 5 episodes worth of classic Mike Movie riffs with some great guests. This offer also extends well into the future so there's really no urgency whatsoever. We're not gonna delete the episodes. But what if we did?

Episode 171: King Kong Vs. America

That's how we do it in Margaritaville, son -- a normal thing to say that I have said and will say moving forward as well. On today's show we've got a Donald Trump doll that looks like a....what???? Plus a new type of headgear, an app just for pasta, a device for making your dog's kibble look even less appetizing than normal, and of course, a stupid card game made by unfunny dorks. And that's pretty much it! Doesn't seem like it would take that long to read 6 things but by God it does. So sit back and relax, tell Alexa to play "some of my favorite boys", and enjoy the show.Music for YKS is courtesy of the Hell Yeah Babies, Craig Dickman, Howell Dawdy, and Mark Brendle.

Episode 170: Slippy Slide Ride Down Tube Canyon

It's time to sue Mike, everyone! He loves sandwiches and it's time to take him to the cleaners, woodshed, and poor house. On today's show we've got a new frontier in tea drinking completely SMASHED, your notions of the wisdom of staying strapped on the beach DESTROYED, and best of all we've got America finally BROUGHT together at last by pictures of, what else, feet. It's a hell of an episode featuring nothing to get mad at us about, so there's no need to try. I'd suggest simply sitting back, relaxing, and vibing!

It's the opposite of Jesseuary in every way: the movies are creepy, classic, and even watched by everyone appearing on the show! Coming up this week we've got The Dead Zone with our friend Mark Brendle, and next week I believe we'll be doing Return of the Living Dead with Matt Christman. Pretty cool!

Episode 167: Sprrrip! Record Scratch!

Hey everybody have you seen my balls they're big and salty and brown! Ohhh Chef! We miss ya pal. Rest in Peace. And of course our friend Ruth Bader Ginsburg has got to do some resting as well. Got a big show today gang, so don't forget to listen to the whole thing, front to back. And hell, when you're done, spin it back for another go. The campaigns on this episode are all over the place....we've got some politics campaigns that really miss the mark, some really crappy vaporware tech, and a couple of people that mean well but whom we thoroughly destroy anyway! That's it, that's the show, and hopefully it will put a big smile on your face in these crazy, crazy times.

Episode 166: Is This Your Handwriting?

Well folks, the freaking Hell Earth is on fire once again, we have a knockoff Cheeto in the White House, and on top of that, my damn Cowboys and Bucs lost! Is there truly no respite for the weary....is there no balm in Gilead??? Well, no. Not like I'm gonna move to Gilead anyway. Instead I'll be here with you all, talking about a children's book (for adults), an app that will disrupt the economy (as soon as it makes sense), and a joke product (hell, unless you wanna buy it!).
