Or, look before you leap, and refer to our handy, time-coded contents list:
03:00– People hear things all the time. That’s why there are chemical restraints. And religion. Demon texts Catholic priest that exorcised him. Social media and the ethereal world.
10:00– Fooz gets creepy reminiscing about Buttercup from The Princess Bride. Hypotheses on the nature of sexuality by three theoretically sexual beings. And have you heard of a Samoan celebrity named Cindy? Miss Too-Soon. A discussion of Adam Sandler putatively least shitty movies leads to a discussion about underage high school boys hooking up with their lady-teachers. Patrick reveals he had a crush on a teacher named Miss Too-Soon.
22:00–Jesus, The Original Hipster. On Reza Aslan taking down the “prosperity gospel” trend in the US, which seems to be used to rationalize a lopsided economic system marked by grotesque income disparity. You said it, man. Nobody fucks with the Jesus.
28:00–Miss Too-Soon, Part 2, and how the young aren’t really people until they’re at least 40. But then we all end up shitting into a diaper, anyway.
33:00– Welfare to Workfare, with Reality TV.
40:00– Christian music. Heavy Metal band Stryper was not Christian. And it wasn’t good metal, either. There’s also Christian hip hop. Egad. Does the Catholic Church have a feast day for the Roman soldier who nailed Jesus to the Cross?
46:00– Snoop, METHOD, LL Cool J. Lots of name-droppings here, but they all have smooth delivery, voices. Fooz and Patrick do Gin and Juice.
YOU MADE IT TO ONE HOUR. Good for you.
01:00:00– Sex, marriage, divorce. Sometimes you’d rather just go to sleep than have sex. Sexy music. Fooz and Patrick singing a Boys II Men ditty is the best form of birth control.
01:10:00– Wrestling, the WWE on steroids, and Fooz’s comedy wrestling league. Just talking out loud.
01:20:00– DUDE. It’s ok to be white. And in America, Arabs are the new black people. Fooz on Arabic hippity hop. AND IT HAD TO HAPPEN: a conversation about The Big Lebowski.
01:27:00–Soap operas, and doing extra work on Shortland Street sucks. And Fooz’s cameo on Power Rangers.
01:30:00–Super-nice comedians are probably hiding something horrible.
01:33:00–Lorde, have mercy. Will Lorde follow the familiar route of some early budding superstars? Or will she steer clear of the 27-Club? Our first installment of I Totally Called That.
01:40:00–Medical marijuana, marijuana legalisation, and the insane War on Drugs. And nobody dances well drunk.
