Your Kickstarter Sucks

Episode 234: The Bedsheet's Wife's Hitman's Bodyguard

On this week's YKS, we attempt to reconstruct what the show was about despite apparently throwing away the show notes, or maybe never even writing anything down in the first place. Oh wait. That's what I'm doing right NOW!!! Well if you go back and look at the sheet we write out before recording, it looks like we revisited the perfect work-from-home Kickstarter with fresh eyes, which I thought was a smart angle for this. And then we do 6 Kickstarters of course. There's a nasty game for nerds on there, there's a Trump thing, a scam, and a useless niche product designed by a space alien. Plus, we decide what kind of store we would be if we were going to be a store. Dollars to donuts there's some good riffs in here too...but don't take my word for it. Listen to my words! Of it! (By downloading the show now.)

For more YKS, head on over to the YKS Premium Patreon. That's basically where we do all kinds of crazy cool stuff and go nutty with it. Also there's no ads, which is a great thing or a bad thing depending on who you ask. Probably the more important thing is the hundreds of hours of bonus content and dozens (so far!) of video episodes which will just damn fall into your damn lap once you fork over the cash. Wow...listening stuff and now seeing stuff as well...YKS Premium is truly a feast for the senses!


This week's YKS is sponsored by Manscaped. Help your penis look better for Valentime's Day with Manscaped. Get 20% off plus free shipping when you use our code YKS 20. When you do that, you're supporting the show and your penis. So imagine the meme from Predator with the two guy shaking hands, and one of them says Penis and the other one says YKS and then in the middle it says Support. Or maybe it says YKS20. Whichever you want. Just send me the meme and I'll look at it and let you know.


Listen to your favorite podcast and cook up tasty, easy-to-prep meals! That's what it says on the website for HelloFresh when you click on it. And hell, I'm inclined to agree. The only thing that would make it better is getting up to 15 free meals and 2 free gifts. But you already know that since I'm there, it's actually gonna be 16 free meals and 3 free gifts with the code yourkickstartersucks16. Wow! I made them offer the deal!


Well if you know me, you know I'm always thinking about my gut health. But I hate munching big handful of vit of mins. Drinking some good tasting green water though? Yeah I can handle that. And so can you, probably, with Athletic Greens. Get a year's supply of Vitamin D and 5 travel packs at AthleticGreens.com/YKS.


Finally, YKS is sponsored -- and joined in the Coupon Code Wars -- by Honey. Between the money they saved me on my latest jersey purchase, and my love for a recently in the public domain cartoon bear, there's just no one else I trust in the coupon code field more than Honey. Check 'em out at JoinHoney.com/YKS, save some cash, and buy yourself a nice red shirt with no shorts underneath. They can't stop ya!

Episode 249: He Admit it!

Whether you’re driving in the car, folding your laundry at home, or simply falling asleep and hoping there’s not a super loud fart noise piped into the mix from totally out of nowhere, there’s no better podcast airing its 249th episode today than Your Kickstarter Sucks. On today’s program we lament the passing of Midwest Elvis, 86 our friend Mike Hale, and prove once and for all what the shape of Earth actually is.I think I forgot to say that David sent that Kickstarter in, and I can’t really go back and add that into the show, but I wanted to say it here in case David reads the episode descriptions. The problem is that we are using a dark mode extension for Google Docs and it makes basically all the colors but white hard to read. And I put “From David” in a red text, but it showed up really dark red. So that is my bad on that one David and oh yeah by the way, the earth is flat so I shouldn’t have done the Kickstarter anyway.

Episode 248: From Karen to Brandon

Oh my god…That’s what you’ll be saying when you hear this week’s episode of YKS, which is so full of awesome content I almost decided to rename it The Awesome Content Show. That’s right, I almost unilaterally made the decision to change the name of the show I do as a full time(ish) job from something identifiable, descriptive, and established (if a little mean) to “The Awesome Content Show”, an honorific perhaps only as blasé as it is inscrutable! Just playing. But keep in mind I could change the name of this show at any fuckin’ time I want. On today’s show, we’re talkin melty clocks, rich guys reinventing the bus, and the ethics of using a marinade on your chicken. Plus we spill the tea on what it’s like being live show superstars, after our recent standing ovation (maybe? Couldn’t bear to look straight ahead) at Zanies with the Doughboys.
