Your Kickstarter Sucks


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.

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.

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.

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.
