Your Kickstarter Sucks


Episode 205: Mindscape Origins

Now just what in the hell was Christopher Nolan smoking when he came up with this one! I don't know, but keep it the hell away from me! On today's show we've got the gene-altering project destined to keep humanity around for centuries to come (cool!), a beer-drinking gag gift sent forward into the future by about 40 years (wow!), and a movie dedicated to rehabilitating the public image of cops (finally!). Plus whatever else we talked about to take up the other 90 minutes of the show. I assume it's pretty good.Music for YKS is courtesy of Howell Dawdy, Craig Dickman, and Mark Brendle.

Episode 204: Better With Bacon

It's another YKS and my heart is full of Thanksgiving! On today's show we're talking about the REAL message of Seinfeld, whether the murder hornets are the last thing we need/were on our bingo card, and if we all had the same fun little magic kits when we were kids (sounds like we didn't!) Plus, shitting into a graboid's mouth, a stupid Reddit scam that actually won't work somehow, and the future of Rock 'n' Roll. If that ain't enough for ya then maybe the rest of the show parts I didn't mention will be. There's a lot in there!Music for YKS is courtesy of Howell Dawdy, Craig Dickman, and Mark Brendle. Additional research by Zeke Golvin. YKS is edited by Producer Dan.For more YKS, check out the Patreon! Now with video! This week on YKS Premium...well, I'm just gonna tell ya up front. It's a nasty one. We recorded a commentary track for IndieGoGo independent film darling, The Dip Run. It's a heartwarming tale about a bunch of disgusting Proud Boys who drive cross country in an RV to pick up a load of dip. We probably bit off more than we could "chew" on this one, to be honest. These guys are dicks. But their movie sucks, too, so check that out on Friday. This week's show is sponsored by BetterHelp. For 10% off your first month, go to A million people are already doing it.

Episode 202: Got Mail?

Episode 202! They said it couldn't be done. On this week's show we're talking about eating freakin BUGS, why you don't see ol' Bigfoot around anymore, the unpredictable demise of Crackle, and so much more there's no way I could fit it into this description. I also do an approximately 5 minute monologue about exercise during which you may be able to hear Mike walking out of his office and down the street. This is one of those episodes that you just straight up listen to and enjoy yourself in the moment, ok? It ain't goin in the museum. No shame in that! It's normal to do this!For more YKS, check out the YKS Premium Patreon. This month, we're debuting YKS-Vision(TM), the name for our video podcasts I didn't clear with Mike in advance of writing this blurb. For $8/month, our Squeeze Louise patrons are getting extra bonus episodes every month AND accompanying video put together by visionary director Producer Dan. This week we welcome back "King of the Scams" Chris James to talk about all of this crap you see around nowadays, his latest victories in the ongoing Prank Wars, and his show's debut on Means (Mean?) TV, all in glorious 24 frames per second. Today's YKS is sponsored by BetterHelp. If I were in charge of BetterHelp, my idea for a slogan would be "BetterHelp: What's your problem?" Needless to say, I'm not in charge of BetterHelp or anything else really, and their slogan is something else. They probably don't have one. But if you'd like to try their professional, confidential counseling service, check it out at and use code YKS for 10% off your first month. And maybe if there's a slogan submission box, try the thing I said.

Episode 201: Mike vs. The Mole People

I need an always-on camera in my shower....right now! And I need it to be called something really stupid, like The Cherdle! On today's YKS, we're finding out if nanotechnology is real, dealing with being notorious overachievers, the best ways to kill a horse, and, of course, the untimely demise of The Ron Burgundy Show. Mike set me up with some bad ones on this ep, gang, so sorry for that in advance. Hey remember HARAMBE???Music for YKS is courtesy of Howell Dawdy, Craig Dickman, and Mark Brendle. Additional research by Zeke Golvin. YKS is edited by Producer Dan. Exec Producer PBostrom.YKS Premium is still, despite our many haters and enemies, going strong. My advice to you, if you enjoy the program, but care only a small amount about the Kickstarter aspect, and wish you could hear more from Mike and myself about movies, and whackin' off, and eatin' snacks, occasionally with guests, would be to check us out on Patreon. That's where we "hang out" and "chill", and it's really goin' off! This week we've got the first ever JokeBlogger Top 10 x Real or Fake crossover showdown. What the hell could that be? Only one way to find out (with several options/ways to choose...)Today's episode of the show is sponsored by NordVPN. Unlock your damn streaming sites with NordVPN. They're too locked up and it's time to knock some sense into 'em. Me personally I like to use NordVPN to test whether my Plex server is working outside of my home network, which it often isn't! Nobody makes it easier than NordVPN to see if someone in India can see my open ports. Check em out for yourself at and use promo code YKS for a wheel of a deal.This week's show is also sponsored by Manscaped. These guys are shaving pubes in 3021, gang. The new LawnMower 4.0 has so much tech on it I think it was probably made by a legally distinct analog of Tony Stark. Also by the way, you heard about it here first on YKS News: We Report, You Enjoy. Check out the new (possibly granted by aliens?) tech on the LawnMower 4.0 at and use promo code YKS. This will help us, and your balls, and your wallet, with 20% off and free shipping.

Episode 199: Birds in the House

Gather round folks, it's time to hear The Amazing JF read from a list of common household groceries. Please have your pen and paper ready for this one! On today's show we find out whether or not DB's got bars, and also I have some notes referring to the following: "what's going on", "weird thing, 2 minutes", and "ether stank". I need to start taking better notes during the show so I remember what to write about in here. Hopefully some of that makes sense or seems interesting, because I'm not sure the 3-D tattooing preview application or the suppressing student loan utilization projects are download-juicers. So strap on a Bottcoola, cause this might be a slog. Music for YKS is courtesy of Howell Dawdy, Craig Dickman, and Mark Brendle. Additional research by Zeke Golvin. YKS is edited by Producer Dan.

Sick of uncomfortable waiting rooms? The folks are BetterHelp were. That's why they developed the most comfortable waiting room of all time.

If you want to try out the most comfortable waiting room of all time, you'll have to try the bottom of the ocean. That's where they buried it!

Episode 197: Hellshrimpers TV

Hey man, make like Justin Bieber and play the hits! On today's show we're joined by a very special guest: Mecha Don Cheadle. MDC tells us all about stomping around Neo-Nashville, battling his fiercest enemies from Planet Munch, and what a crazy year we've all had. Oh oh oh oh oh I've got the moves like Jim Carrey! Start the damn episode! None of that shit I said was real! Music for YKS is courtesy of Howell Dawdy, Craig Dickman, and Mark Brendle. Additional research by Zeke Golvin. YKS is edited by Producer Dan. Exec Producer PBostrom.For more YKS, check out YKS Premium on Patreon. We got some great shit coming up this month: Sean and Hayes from Hollywood Handbook, our friend Tom from ChapoFYM, and I bet we will even have a third idea at some point. No ads, discounted merch and more, all over there at the thing I said before. This episode of YKS is brought to you by Manscaped. Got Bush? Talking about pubes here, gang. Take that mons pubis behind the woodshed and go wild on it with the Lawnmower 3.0. You could pay 20% more and cover your own shipping if you want, but I wouldn't recommend it. Probably would make more sense to use promo code YKS at, and keep that 20% + shipping money in the ol' back pocket there. Also sponsoring today's show: NordVPN. Quite simply, you ain't gonna find a better Virtual Private Network anywhere on God's green earth. Go to Mars if you want, but don't come crying to me and NordVPN when it ain't any better up there neither. Meantime, use promo code YKS at for a mega discount on a 2 year deal.
