Ep 10 - Are You Not Entertained? Try Turning It Off and On Again
Charles Bronson once said that, "Audiences like to see the bad guys get their comeuppance". After, quite possibly, the weakest podcast to date we're fairly confident that our largest studio audience yet got what we deserved. And while SK, Shantwon and newest producer, Squidge McSqueezy arrive at the bomb shelter unprepared, we're pretty sure it was the audience's fault.
After going around the room to remind each person who they are, the gang struggles to make a paltry sample of emails sound entertaining. The nethermost point might have been reached with our latest edition of animal obituaries.
This week the majority of your time will be squandered listening to the troupe rail about the latest insipid what-to-do-in-the-city list authored by another androgynous, vintage, bib & tuck master of liberal arts. In fact, if it weren't for Babette's momentary rant about racism in Chinatown, we might have never taken a break for another lackluster commercial for Bridal Fitness Coach.
The last portion of the podcast focuses on what SK would do with just three days in San Francisco. Can you say binge-watch Sid & Marty Krofft? There are a few more thinly veiled advertisements for SK Morton's Lousy San Francisco Walking Tour (Like that) and then Babette finally convinces SK that Downton Abbey might not be a bad locale for a pasty vacation away from hipsters, UFOs and cross-fitters.
Not unlike Sha-na-na, This podcast was recorded in front of a live studio audience. There were no survivors.
