Your Kickstarter Sucks


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,

Truth, Dare, or Spoon! Oh my god, I guess I'll go with SPOON! Hahaha. Oh sick there's mayonnaise in here...Yuckeroo! I can't wait til my 39th birthday tomorrow haha.

Also on today's show we've got the debut of 3 new characters: Mr. Food, Flip Flop Farrar, and The Michael Jordan of Coins. Probably couldn't find that many characters in Kanji, the adopted logographic Chinese characters that are used in the Japanese writing system. We also have an update on a stupid fuckin thing that squirts goo into your banana. So that's something to look forward to. Alright I'll see ya in there gang.

Episode 186: Remote Daddy and Dirty Dawg

Covid-19 sucks so bad....I really want to put my crap on it. No, I'm serious. I want to wipe my butt with Covid-19!! Yeah!! I'm going to do this. I think I'll do it. And I'll tell other people to help me do put my butt on Covid-19. Sick of this guy! We presume that is the thought process responsible for bringing "Fuck Covid Toilet Paper" to the world, but hell I don't know, I just read the stuff. I barely wipe my ass with any of the products we make fun of on here. Anyway also this week we have a new thing to make video chatting even more lame and annoying, an app for stopping fake restaurant reviews with the power of QR codes, and a way to keep hold of the GOD damn remote, which should be in the same spot every time. Why the fuck is it over there! Fuck! 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.It's a big week, and I mean a BIG WEEK on the YKS Premium Patreon, folks! It's the start of Jesseuary Year 2, and we're kicking it off with a big, destructive monster who, despite his frightening outward appearance, is actually a gentle giant whom I love very much. I'm talking about Godzilla. Makes sense. And the guest is our friend Dan O'Sullivan who, come to think of it, I'm quite fond of as well. Join us for this kickoff mega episode on 2019's King of the Monsters and stick around all month long for some more great Jesse Movies and guests.
