Episode 180: YKS Premium S12E3: Miketober Episode 3: The Dead Zone with Mark Brendle: The YKS Cut

Hey gang, it's the YKS boys' annual week off, so we're bringing some YKS Premium content out of the vault for your enjoyment. If you haven't heard this classic ep yet, you are in for a treat. And if you have, well, it's still a treat! Plus, feel free enjoy the brand new intro at the beginning. Or not! Either way, our friend Mark Brendle joins us to talk about The Dead Zone, a very weird little movie from the twisted mind of Stephen King that has, dare I say, become very relevant in the last couple of months. It's a great choice by Brendle and I think we learn a lot as well as having a good time. Short of hanging out with Neil deGrasse Tyson, I don't think you'd find a better way to combine those two things than this episode. Happy hall of days every one, and we will be back with some 100% new shit next week. Cheers,

This week over at the YKS Premium Patreon, we're taking the day off from all-new, instant-classic content. But we will be re-releasing the Squeeze Louise tier Miketober ep with Bakkoon and Simon Barrett, on They Live, along with another cute little intro. (And Squeeze Louise heads, don't worry, the end of year mailbag is coming soon). Thanks everybody for supporting the show and keeping me out of the Google Docs Resume Template hell I was in for a while. We hope you have enjoyed at least some of the stuff we're doing. And more fun shit to come I assume!

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!!!

Kong, checking out some Kickstarters that didn't make it to the big show on In The Cut, and reading more of that weird Tarantino fan's bizarre and disgusting tribute script. 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.

Plus, we've got a visit from our old friend Eric Cartman, and his big butt and the butt stinks.
