Episode 195: Harold and Kumar Get the Vaccine
Now this is the episode that makes you say "Well it's Episode 195 of the podcast." That's right gang, it really is. On today's YKS we're taking a deep dive on Da Vinky's Pencil, the bourgeois way we treat scraps of bar soap, and the pitfalls of trying to make a Quentin Tarantino movie when you're even dumber than he is. Plus: what are the most played items on JF and DB's Plex servers? This is content that, for some reason, you won't want to miss. Oh and by the way...Happy FREAKIN Easter!!!

And next week we got a great guest: Lil Mookie B!
Episode 194: Ring Ring...It's Funny!
How do I display my collectibles??? Oh God! Help me! Don't I deserve help? That's what we're talking about this week, folks: who deserves help and who doesn't. So far we've got Funky Pop Guys and that's pretty much it. We're also introducing each other to the Svanki, inventing ethical consumption under capitalism with one weird trick, and helping out the poor folks who love pretending they're that really bad guy from a long time ago. You know who I'm talking about. Not good. Music for YKS is courtesy of Howell Dawdy, Craig Dickman, and Mark Brendle. Additional research by Zeke Golvin. YKS is edited by Producer Dan.

Episode 193: You Go Poly
Looks like somebody's got a case of the Mondays! Hey lemme get one haha. On today's show of Your Kickstarter Sucks (The Official Your Kickstarter Sucks Podcast), it's time to have some scary dreams about protecting our friends from inappropriate and unsupervised power tool usage, figure out what to do if your yoda gets a little too hairy, and experience the visceral pain of playing board games with your kids. Plus, we've got a visit from our old friend Eric Cartman, and his big butt and the butt stinks.

Episode 192: The Ghost of Spencer Gifts
OooooOOOOOoooooOOO! I'm the Ghost of Spencer Gifts! I'm rattling some glow in the dark plastic chains, and rubbing a hard plastic "personal back massager" very inexpertly onto the attic floor! I've been cursed to walk this low traffic corner of the local mall for 100 years as punishment for stealing a KoRn poster in 1998! I died when I swallowed some of the goop inside the display-only lava lamps. Alright that was fun. On today's show we've got the best food bowl for your Pampered Pet, a game for people who can laugh at plumber's butt cracks (everyone???), and a coat to protect us from negative energies. Finally! Now if you will excuse me, I have a plastic cup with a pot leaf and the phrase "Dealer's Choice" on it to knock off the top shelf. 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.Today's show is sponsored by Oxygen. Sick of all the fees and crapola you get from the classic big banks? I actually really am. One of them I'm using has a super messed up app. I had to use the iPad version and zoom in on the text box while pressing one key at a time to sign in. Very annoying! And I didn't get any rewards for doing it! Well Oxygen is different. You get the good app, you get the rewards at the store, the gas station, and food delivery, and you get virtual debit cards as well. Now that's nice. Download the Oxygen app on the App Store or Google Play, drop in two hundred bucks, and get $25 back. There's no such thing as a free lunch? Well there is now!

This week on YKS Premium: Bloody Marys with Tim Kalpakis!
Episode 191: The DumpStore
Today on the program we're figuring out what type of sitcom can never be "canceled" (one that's never made), the reason Magic: The Gathering cards aren't treated the same as gold and other precious metals (because they're dorky little cards) and why it's so darn cheap to go on vacation to world class resorts (they're fake). And so much more they won't even let me write it in this damn descripsht! Tough word to abbreviate there but I did my best. And that's all anyone can ask of me, forever and ever! Bye bye!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 is sponsored by the fine folks at Manscaped. Oh my lord, it's March Manness already? Who ya got in your bracket? I think Joe Biden's gonna go All The Way! Alright enough bullcrap. Check out Manscaped.com and use promo code YKS at check out to snag 20% off and free shipping. I tell you what, you might think I'm bullshitting you but I got the Manscaped cologne and it's better the cologne I was using before. They did a good job with it. You're gonna like the way you smell, I guarantee it. And ya can't forget about HelloFresh. Seriously, I can't! Believe me, I've tried. They're stuck in my dang head all day long. When am I gonna get another box of precisely-portioned, healthy and delicious ingredients dropped on my doorstep? Best thing for me to do would probably be to go to HelloFresh.com/yourkickstartersucks12 and use code yourkickstartersucks12 to get 12 free meals and free shipping. They make good food! And check out the YKS Premium Patreon please. Thank you.
Episode 190: We're Not Political
We've all been there. Sitting around in our early-30s (or late-30s, depending on which guy it is), trying to decide if we're going to be James Bond or Ross from Friends. Some of us are still deciding! And it's ok to take lots and lots of time to do that. I really believe this! On today's show, Jesse gets electrocuted through the computer screen, Mike abandons a bit, and there's an absolutely wild, you-have-to-hear-it LIVE scramble to turn the 5-pack into the 6-pack we all know and love. Plus we got fake doctors, fake soundbars, fake COVID-19 cures.....and TWINS!! Music for YKS is courtesy of Howell Dawdy, Craig Dickman, and Mark Brendle. Additional research by Zeke Golvin.

Episode 189: It's A Woman Thing
Ohhhh folks! It's another episode of YKS. They keep doing these things so hopefully you'll keep listening to 'em. On today's show, we are in our Juice Groove trying to figure out what's the deal with cutting boards Jerry Seinfeld voice, enjoying objects d'art instead of watching the Idiot Box, and celebrating our Queen Nancy Pelosi with a bizarre gift that not even that nasty old wretch could enjoy. I figure, hey, unless you're a big time surgeon slicing people open and putting all kinds of stuff in there, you can probably listen to the show while you work. And you know, honestly, even those guys gotta take smoke breaks sometimes so get them in here too. It's fun for the whole family (minus the kids, grandparents, most parents, people who like church, board game guys, crypto currency investors, and the normal serotonin having crew. So basically just for dogs.) It's YKS: The Show For Dogs. 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 is sponsored by BetterHelp. Go to BetterHelp.com/YKS to see why 1,500,000 people are going on there to get professional counseling services. Hey I'll save you some time. One reason is they don't have those stinking magazines you get at the in-person counseling office. Yuck! Who wants to read that junk? Not me. I'll stick to never reading anything for basically my entire adult life, thank you very much. It's 10% off at BetterHelp.com/YKS, so that's basically where I'd go if I were you. And we're also brought to you by the folks over at HelloFresh. Let me tell you something about HelloFresh, brother. There ain't no better way to get simple, fresh meal kits delivered to your house. Oh, and it's good for the environment, oh and it's healthy, oh and...and..and...somebody stop me, I'm going crazy for HelloFresh! Anyhow the food is good, and you know because I ate it (I only eat good food). Give 'em a whirl at HelloFresh.com/yourkickstartersucks10 and use the promo code yourkickstartersucks10 for 10 free meals and free shipping.Last but not least, folks, we've got the YKS Premium Patreon feed. If you've ever wanted to get on there and see what happens when Mike and JF let their hair down, there's no better time to do it than right now. We're getting close to the thrilling conclusion of Jessuary 2021, an event unlike any other. Come and see what the likes of Jon Gabrus, Sarah Squirm, and renowned pilot hero Sully Sullenberger have to say about some of Jesse's favorite dumb guy flicks.**Certain guests cut for time
Episode 188: Jessuary Year 2 Episode 3: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen with Jon Gabrus
All the characters from all the different works of literature come together with everything for a HUGE MOVIE! We're joined by one of the only guys on the planet who loves ridiculous movies as much as JF does, Jon Gabrus, to discuss when podcast guys are your actual friends, not reading too many books ever, and how bad it feels when some guy builds 8 boats if all you ever built was 1 boat.

Go to BetterHelp.com/YKS to find a professional, affordable counselor you can talk to over the computer. 1.5M people are already on there talking to counselors on the computer. Hell if you put that on TV it'd be some high ratings. Obviously they aren't going to do that, due to it would violate privacy. TV is kind of bad now anyway. I'm over it! And if you liked this episode of Jessuary, we've got even more available on the YKS Premium Patreon. This Friday, Sarah Squirm returns to review the Jeff Bridges/Ryan Reynolds dead buddy dead-em-up, R.I.P.D.! Here's a preview: Sarah hated it!
