1:03:15 | May 11th, 2017

Collecting vinyl records might just be the biggest waste of time and space possible... next to collecting cassette tapes, I guess? They collect dust, they get warped, you have to play 'em on a record player. Vinyl was a level of hipsterdom that we ne...Show More

Apparently people camp for fun. Do mosquitoes, ticks, dirt, and rain sound fun though? I mean like, not to a total weirdo. Because we know weirdos like dirt and ticks. WE KNOW. Camping, or as we like to call it, pretending to live outside for a fews ...Show More

1:02:13 | Mar 23rd, 2017

Opera has been lost on us basically our entire lives. Opera is something to parody, to make fun of, to look at from afar and say "That seems very boring and strange." So why on earth is it so popular for some people? They have whole big fancy buildin...Show More

The Bachelor Season 21 just came to a close this week in perfect timing with our episode about it! But wow, what a horrible idea for a show. If we are being honest, we can see why people would want to watch it but the ethics behind it are... question...Show More

NoFap or No Fap or No Fapping or whatever the hell the boys on the 'net are calling it, is a non-masturbation movement. Is it religious? Is it just for men? Is it dumb? Probably. Don't people need to like, have an orgasm regularly? Isn't that what we...Show More

1:04:59 | Mar 2nd, 2017

Anime may have been a much bigger subject than we bargained for, we admit it. There are so many different aspects and facets to anime! But a lot of them are really boring, unoriginal, and often sexist. Anime is also really weird but we can't pretend ...Show More

Death, Diabetes, and Squalor. This show has turned into a real sad doozy, huh? But we had to do it. This topic is too weird and who on earth "likes" squalor? Well I guess Sam West does. Sam West is a mythical and cool man who we've known and worked w...Show More

55:46 | Feb 16th, 2017

Diabetes is an epidemic in the US. Many people have died or lost limbs to the disease. We don't know what else to say because our understanding of diabetes is pretty limited. But we were pretty sure that it was generally thought of as BAD. Someone th...Show More

Ayahuasca SCARES US. For all we know it is basically throwing yourself into a black hole of your own consciousness that there is no guarantee that you'll ever come back from. It's a scary tea that South American people are probably fine doing but us ...Show More

58:33 | Jan 12th, 2017

Mixed martial arts is a classic example of something we do NOT LIKE. Meryl Streep was damn right they ain't "ARTS!" We've watched a clip or two of it, and it flat-out scares and disturbs us. A no-holds barred fight between two people couldn't be a wo...Show More

52:38 | Jan 5th, 2017

Does anyone really need the Royal Family around anymore? I mean, they are just here to look at at this point. We could really just replace them all with mannequins. Mannequin versions of Kate and William and Elizabeth and George and whoever else coul...Show More

We'll admit it, concerts were pretty cool. WERE. The older we get, the more we can't stand-a the concerts-a! So many people, especially tall ones, standing directly in your line of view, eardrum damage, expensive drinks. The list goes on. But D'Arcy ...Show More

1:02:33 | Dec 22nd, 2016

Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah everyone! And in the spirit of the holidays, our topic today is "being annoying." Why would we do a show on "being annoying" you ask? The only reason I can think of is because our guest today is such a close friend ...Show More

Malls are dying. They are basically catacombs at this point! Lost, forgotten, enormous catacombs! Are they good for anything other than remembering how much you hate going to the mall? Jeffrey Max seems to think so. Jeffrey Max is one of our comedy h...Show More

Pranks are not fun for anyone but the prankster. They're mean, they're misleading, and they are basically lying! Why would you prank someone unless you were secretly a slightly evil person? Carol Kolb, are you evil? On the show today, we have Carol K...Show More

1:08:46 | Dec 1st, 2016

I can’t believe we’re doing an episode on football. Football is a repugnant sport filled with head injuries, clacking of helmets, and brain damage. Did we mention a lot of these guys end up killing themselves? Okay, well it’s not totally fair to focu...Show More

Happy Thanksgiving Make Me Liker's! And on such a beautiful day of American thanks, what could be a better topic than good old-fashioned pessimism? Speaking of pessimism, this episode was recorded two days before the election. Isn't that fun? God, we...Show More

1:06:22 | Nov 17th, 2016

Ever wonder what The Bog of Eternal Stench from the Labyrinth movie was based off of? New York City in the summer time. We can't prove that since Jim Henson is dead, but we're willing to bet, that's about right. In addition to being the smelliest pla...Show More

52:42 | Nov 10th, 2016

Being bald seems scary. You're exposed. Anyone can just place their grubby fingers on your naked scalp. Also, losing your hair feels like dying. A sign that your virility is sapped. All the good stuff is over. But honestly, being bald isn't something...Show More

1:10:44 | Nov 3rd, 2016

Fraternities and sororities are only ever in the news because of some horrible hazing mishap that led to someone's death or eternal mental scarring. So what are they good for? A bunch of dudes getting together to drink beer and sexually assault women...Show More

What can you say about white men? They’ve entered an age of deplorability. They’re a lost cause. They took terrible advantage of their power for too long and now… it’s over guys. Your day in the sun has passed. Winter is coming… for white men. As the...Show More

Just the simple thought of the idea of cats makes one's chest start to seize, eyes water, and throat tickle. That's just our starting point with cats. And then there's that flippant attitude, that needlessness, that absolute independence that seeming...Show More

Magic is so stupid. It’s a sham and a hoax and only super sad and desperate people make a living doing it! That was really harsh. Sorry, I’ll backpedal a little bit. Magic is just like, not our thing. It’s some people’s thing! Like Avery Monsen for i...Show More

Casual Sex is a filthy, low-life activity, are we right? If you’re going to have sex, you need to get serious about it and you should probably get dressed up for it. A little bowtie, some perfume, run a comb through your hair… anything but just showi...Show More

57:06 | Sep 15th, 2016

Like most of the things we talk about on this show, Disneyland is overrated. As children, we were led to believe falsely that it was the happiest (and therefore BEST) place on earth. So not true, guys. If you count the number of times you hear a chil...Show More

40:04 | Sep 8th, 2016

Puns are the seagulls of comedy... or the pigeons. We're talking low-hanging, plentiful fruit here, folks. Lots of people sling 'em and the biggest response we can muster is a "you got me" or a long, exasperated groan. But some people don't believe t...Show More

46:32 | Sep 1st, 2016

Parties are one of the most overrated things in history. The word itself has such fun and positive connotations. It's supposed to be something awesome and exciting but then you get there and it's like "Why am I here? Why am I not at home cuddling wit...Show More

58:37 | Aug 25th, 2016

Pro wrestling is what I (Kelly) would describe as "a background weirdness" in life. It's waaaaay back there in the reality of my mind. It exists, but I'm not sure why. What we DO know is that there are plenty of negative aspects. Lives are ruined (wa...Show More

1:06:46 | Aug 18th, 2016

When I say the word "Shakespeare," what emotion washes over you? For us, it's a strong, dull boredom sort of wash. Not a great wash. Our whole lives Shakespeare is forced down our throats as if it's the be-all-end-all in prose and poetry and plays bu...Show More

59:44 | Aug 11th, 2016

So it’s 2016 and the Summer Olympics are happening. BIG WHOOP. Guess who’s not watching them? Dan and Kelly, that’s who because they’re boring. How are we supposed to care about a buncha obscure sports and a buncha random athletes we’ve never seen be...Show More

Oh my gosh CARS ARE HORRIBLE. Truly the devil’s machines, they contribute to the deaths of tens of thousands of people every year! Even with seatbelts and shit like that, 32,675 people were still killed in 2014 alone in car accidents. Now that I’ve g...Show More

53:39 | Jul 21st, 2016

Musicals are a washed up genre. Musicals are too long and too expensive! Musicals are usually completely unnecessary!! We could go on, but maybe you should just listen to the podcast, huh? Paul F. Tompkins has a thing or two to say about 'em. Paul F....Show More

Fashion. As David Bowie so famously wrote in his song of the same name: "Oh bop, fashion it's loud and tasteless and I've heard it before." Oh bop indeed, guys. We don't like fashion. The industry, the pressure, the starving tall people! It's a big l...Show More

Teenagers. Who on earth likes teenagers? Their own parents don't even like them! At the ripe ages of 31 and 33, Dan and Kelly are at a pivotal time in their lives where they are childless, but still old and curmudgeonly. Here to try and change all th...Show More

Going to bed early is fantastic, am I right? I mean, I know it's hard to do, but like, it's the best. Some people think staying up late is awesome though. Sure, the idea of it is cool, but like, what's the point? We need to go to bed, people! Well, P...Show More
