Your Kickstarter Sucks


Episode 244: Dog Health Revolution

“He ate the whole wheel of cheese. I’m not even mad.” - Unknown

Remember Sarah Palin? What was THAT all about, huh? She’s not in this episode at all really but I just saw something that reminded me of her and thought maybe you’d get a kick out of remembering her for a second as well. But if not, no worries, because you’re about to listen to about 90 minutes of pure nonsense from 2-3 bozos with barely anything going on. Today’s episode, for instance, features a Bitcoin wallet which is just a credit card, an idea that actually makes pizza bad somehow, and, incredibly, a Donald Trump RPG. That’s right folks, it’s episode 244, and that’s what’s going on. But that’s Monday for ya. Enjoy!

YKS Premium: The only way to become a guaranteed genius. Trying out some new marketing techniques on these plugs. First up: an inscrutable lie! Hey but in all seriousness gang, the overall experience of YKS Premium is banging, and there’s always more coming down the big stinky pipe. This week, we’ve got our much-ballyhooed mailbag dropping for our Squeeze Louise supporters, and that’s IN ADDITION to a Premium episode concept to be named later. Last week we previewed the Oscars with our friend Dan O’Sullivan…how’d we do? (smirk)

A good tasting and good for you drink, now that’s nothing to shake a stick at. So put down the stick! And get your year supply of Vitamin D and 5 free travel packs at

Outer - Outdoor furniture has a tough job. It’s gotta feel good when I sit on it, and also not freak out if it gets rained on. Well Outer has perfected that combination of traits, plus their stuff is modular as the day is long. And you’ll wish the day WAS longer when you’re sitting outside on your Outer furniture. Get a massive $300 off your order when you use the code YKS300 at!

BetterHelp - “Takin’ Care of Business, every day, oh yeah!” That’s what I’m thinking when I’m doing stuff around the house, taking care of the kiddos and pets, and helping my wife do whatever. And by the time the song stops, I ain’t got no time for my own self. Sad! But the folks at BetterHelp wanna help with that bit of relatable malaise, and you can try them right now with 10% off your first month at

Episode 251: Constitution 2

Great news, everyone! We just found out we’ve been renewed for another 250 episodes! To celebrate, we’ve decided to bring back some of the classic YKS things you all loved so much, with a fun “Next 250 Episodes” twist. This week, you’ll enjoy a stupid piece of bathroom tech, some rebadged bulk dropshipped electronics, and a weird guy with ideas about how he could run the country. But THIS time, we will sound approximately 5 years older. And that’s just a taste of what we have in store for you all this time around. So if that sounds like the ride of a lifetime, slap that motherfuckin play button and let’s fast forward to our 40s baby!

Episode 250: Cousin Jabba / Jimmy John’s Locker

Two Hundred Fifty episodes. Now that's what I call a very significant milestone. Even though some of the episodes were reruns from YKS Premium. Oh yeah, and there are hundreds of YKS Premium episodes too. So is this really 250, when it's actually like 482? Yep. That's what the number says, so that's what it is.On today's 250th episode, which is the number that it is, we're dealing with our 3 Foes, cooking toxins, and Mike's Little Freakout Pile. Plus we got a cool book for kids...who like motorcycles, a guy doing some 2007 style YouTube, and yet another porch package device...with a twist! And a very special anniversary edition of Real or Fake. Music for YKS is courtesy of Howell Dawdy, Craig Dickman, Mr. Baloney, and Mark Brendle. Additional research by Zeke Golvin.

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.
