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 BetterHelp.com/yks and use code YKS for 10% off your first month. And maybe if there's a slogan submission box, try the thing I said.

Hold on to your butt, Mike, cause we're crankin this thing up to 79.8 gigawatts and going back in time! Or forward in time. Whatever the hell that movie is about, I couldn't honestly tell you.

Alright you all, listen up. And I really mean listen! Because I reckon that's what the show is all about. Today we're doing 6 Kickstarters...sike! Who cares! On this week's episode we're figuring out The Perfect Age, revisiting (apparently) some Tweets from Tattooine, and talking about all the things I personally haven't done. That takes up most of the show, of course, but we do have time to touch on what makes a shelf a shelf, ruining the value of our precious Pokemon cards, and helping grampy choke down his one medicine every day. Sounds like a real snooze but I promise it's fine. Seriously!Music for YKS is courtesy of Howell Dawdy, Craig Dickman, Mr. Baloney, and Mark Brendle. Additional research by Zeke Golvin.
