Episode 9: Baygasm

Friday, July 8th, 2011

 On today’s show Nate and I start with taking some time to cover our little bet, and what little chance I have to avoid seeing “Smurfs 3D.” If I am able, however, to avoid that fate worse than death, it’ll be thanks to that charming visage to the left and the fact that he is, in fact, a magic lamp that, when rubbed correctly, will produce a near-constant stream of pure money.
