The Best Debate In The Universe - Episode #12
August 22nd, 2016
Big announcement this week: the first new show to join the Madcast Media Network is PodAwful with Jesse P-S. It's been a long-time coming and we'll soon be hosting The Best Debate in the Universe and PodAwful on Madcast Media:
Recently the New York branch of the improv and comedy theater, Upright Citizens Brigade, banned comedian Aaron Glaser because he was accused of rape by several women. Many notable comedians have weighed in on the decision, including Kurt Metzger, a former writer for "Inside Amy Schumer." The controversy reached a boiling point this week and we discuss the reasons why sexual assault victims don't always go to the police. This was a great debate and one of my personal favorite shows.
Deputy moderator Rucka Ali is back and has a new reaction-to-reaction YouTube series where he reacts to people reacting to his own videos. Plus more "Armenian" callers, Tourettes Russian, Sean's Italian in-laws and Persistent Lumbergh.
We wrap the show up with the Olympic pole-vaulter, Hiroki Ogita, whose penis may have bumped the pole during his vault. Plus the FEC wants to disqualify candidates like Deez Nuts in the future.
And here's the video of the pole-vaulter himself:
The voicemail number is: 1-562-58-I-RULE (1-562-584-7853).
