Episode 215: The Rappin' Monsters

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!

Episode 228: Crap and Pee Bags

We all crap and pee, sure. But what then? What then, I ask you?!?! Well there's an app for that, and oh yeah, the app is a bag. On today's show, Mike and JF are OFFICIALLY back on their bullshit, unless you don't like that kind of stuff, in which case it could not be any further from the truth. But! What they do have, whether you like it or not, is some ribald humor, informative discussion on various topics, and a friendship that will stand the test of time. Plus the crap and pee bags thing from the title of the episode. Check it out, gang, and if you don't love it, you can always listen to it anyway. Not everything is gonna be your favorite. Time to grow up! Want more YKS? Wow! Sorry to hear that? May I ask why not? Oh okay, yeah, I understand. Well, with all that being said, and by the way, I could not agree with you more, these guys are real scumbags. But with all that being said, they do offer weekly bonus episodes and more at the YKS Premium Patreon page. Obviously you won't be taking advantage of their awesome annual subscription discount, or seeing any video content or anything like that. But, as crazy as this sounds, thousands of people are enjoying this stuff every month, and it even makes for a great gift this holiday season. Yeah, really demented stuff. Sad, actually. But that's America for you. Today's episode of YKS is sponsored by BetterHelp. "I get by with a little help from my friends" - Unknown.
