Your Kickstarter Sucks


Episode 257: YKS AI

Of all the universes in all the multiverses, THIS is the one you chose to portal us to?! The one with a brand new YKS dropping, and it’s about a bunch of crazy Kickstarters and stuff!? You better know what you’re doing, because if we don’t retrieve the Cube of Crowdfundium by the time Brendle’s Song plays…well, let’s just say you better hold on to your board games, buster! On today’s show, ah yes, it says right here in the scrolls, there was a really weird thing about car keys, a psycho copsucker app, oh my, and yes, this is the exact date they discussed the guy gluing a lighter to his cell phone! It’s just as was foretold…now hurry, back to The Webby. We might just have enough hyperfuel to bounce to the next cryptoworld…

After an episode like this, they should really consider not doing any more of the show. And yet! The Adventures of YKS continue over at, where a nominal fee can secure you 5 bonus episodes, including weekly video, per month! W@W! L@@K!

This week’s episode of the program is brought to you by these fine ads. I mean sponsors. 

  • Factor –  Food. There ain’t nothing like it. I just wish it would cook itself. Well perhaps in some far off future, where we exchange space credits for nutritional films. For now, I suppose we will have to be satisfied with the healthful, convenient, and affordable offerings of Factor. Not a bad consolation if you ask me. Get $120 off with code yks120 at right now! Don’t wait until future times!

  • Backbone – Backbone is basically a magic wand that turns your phone into a gaming console. And you really don’t even need to know that much magic. I guess a little couldn’t hurt. Like the rabbit trick is good. Where in the hell…anyway, right now you can get an absolute boatload of free months – including Apple Arcade, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and more – with your purchase of a Backbone at

  • Honey – Now sure, we’ve doled out some great coupon codes here in this episode description. But what if you don’t have it handy? Well ok can you go get it? Ok. You can’t. Fine. That’s where Honey comes in. Honey: it’s free, and it helps you find coupon codes because that's where the coupon codes live. Download it!

  • Diet Smoke – Sometimes (or maybe even all the time if you’re certain guys) the straight up full strength ganja out there might just have you saying “that’s tewwww spicey for me!” That’s where Diet Smoke comes in. Its Delta-8 gummies are sort of the, what was it, the bears with the different preferences? It’s the middle one. And that’s exactly what the doctor (some, maybe, in certain states, purely metaphorically?) ordered. Get 20% off – IN PERPETUITY!! –  with code YKS20 at
