Episode 217: American Friend John Hamburger

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. On today's YKS, we're imagining a world where all the Proud Boys are safely under the ocean, playing some erotic games, and, oh my god, sharing memes finally. Fuck yes! We can finally share memes! I've had all these memes here just sitting around and I...wow. This is big. Okay, you're gonna wanna tune into this one. For the lols! That's a meme I just shared! Oh god I'm gonna blow!!!

Also sponsoring this week's show: HelloFresh! Now I'll be honest with ya, folks. I consider myself a seafood fan, but I can't recall ever trying the species of catadromous fish that Australis Aquaculture once called the "It" Fish...until HelloFresh stepped in. "Open up!" they said. And open I did. What a meal. What a delight. A whole new fish, in my mouth, and I look cool for being ahead of the curve? Are you kidding me? Where do I sign up? Here, I'll tell ya: HelloFresh.com/yourkickstartersucks14 is the place to go, and yourkickstartersucks14 is the code to use for 14 free meals and free shipping. What will YOU try next?

Want more YKS? Well the only place you're gonna get it, unless you kick down my fuckin' door and force me to riff like crazy, which is a CRIME brother, and I've got a bunch of Home Alone traps set up too so don't try it, is to sign up for YKS Premium over on Patreon. We've got a big month coming up, as you may well know, but I'll be damned if we ain't still pumpin' out good shit every week leading up to it anyway. This past week we looked at another half dozen or so projects you can force us to buy, and oh yeah...it's all on video!!! Check it out now and binge every single second of the past 4 years until it's scary movie time and "you know what"...

Episode 223: But His Emails!

In a world...where a man needed every email he'd ever sent, and his friends thought he was crazy...a hero emerged...and it was the man, from before. The one with the emails...Coming soon to whatever the funniest streaming service to say would be...it's The Email Genius. On today's show, we're talking about why I'm so great, how I'm great, why I'm the best, etc. Plus Mike goes Poop Cop Mode and we listen to some Chap Hop! Oh and the projects are like, a porno guy and a shoe and a towel. Not that great but that's why we did all the other stuff. We knew it sucked! That's why we were funny this time!Music for YKS is courtesy of Howell Dawdy, Craig Dickman, Mr. Baloney, and Mark Brendle. Additional research by Zeke Golvin. YKS is edited by Producer Dan. Executive Producer lola butt.Miketober continues over at YKS Premium and this week we're doing The Stuff (1985)!

Who better to discuss the horror of junk food consumption than our friends The Doughboys! That's right, Nick Wiger and Mike Mitchell join us this Friday for The Stuff, only on YKS Premium!YKS is sponsored by Manscaped.

Mike was the guy doing backflips in the server room, while I sat down the block in a very normal looking work van filled to the brim with computers and wires and stuff.

Do it for Mikey!Also sponsoring this week's episode is HelloFresh. Ding-dong! It's time to get organized! Just to get you started, how about a big box full of classic autumn vegetables, such as...pumpkin, maybe? And crust? Pumpkin and crust...now there's a perfect union! Hell, they've got my vote! Anyway to tell you the truth I didn't get a pumpkin. I got normal stuff like, fish and whatnot, which was also good. But maybe you'll get a pumpkin. At any rate, what I do is basically take the stuff out of the box and cook it. What you do with it after that is up to you but I suggest eating the food. I'll leave the rest to your imagination...Try it for yourself today at HelloFresh.com/YKS14 and you're gonna wanna use that promo code as well, YKS14 for 14 free meals and free shipping! Wow-ee I can't wait to eat my pumpkin!

Episode 222: Bat in the Cave

e.g., On this award-winning show, we dive deep into the psyches of the world's cereal killers. Does Snap make Crackle Pop? And is Tony really that grrreat after all? All this, and more, from Cereal<--- That's the suggested text for the description box of this episode, so now you can make an informed decision as to whether my descriptions are good or not. I don't have an opinion either way. I'm just sitting here doing my thing. On today's show, we've got not one but TWO top tens for a total of top twenty, a 21 beep salute for our fallen smoke alarms, and also something called Trevr Huntr, I think. Plus, Mike fucks me over on the 6-pack once again. All this, and more, from Cereal. Just kidding.Music for YKS is courtesy of Howell Dawdy, Craig Dickman, Mr. Baloney, and Mark Brendle.

Episode 221: New Crypto Scam Just Dropped

Monday morning...Guess it's time to pour a cup of java, head to "my office" to drop some stink off, and tune in to the best podcast known to man. And after I'm done with whatever that is, I'll be listening to YKS, the show for which these next few paragraphs should serve as the description!On today's show we're talking about the wild world of wrasslin' (with apologies to all our friends who love it), possibly renaming Green Knight to reflect how nothing happens in it (Stink Night?), and an Mike's intense love affair with the scroll wheel. Plus, we're blowing away the poopoos with compressed air, sleeping at the hospital in a pine box, and narrating a dog jumping on a fence to millions of adoring fans. It's just THAT kinda day on YKS, folks, and if you don't think that's miracle shit, then it's not for you and very little is!Music for YKS is courtesy of Howell Dawdy, Craig Dickman, Mr. Baloney, and Mark Brendle.
