The Best Debate In The Universe - Episode #49
May 15th, 2017
Who is the biggest douchebag in the universe? And why is it U2's Bono? Jesse P-S joins us this week for our first-ever BAG-OFF. We learn in this episode that Jesse has met Bill Nye in person not once, but twice, as well as U2's Bono and even Merriam Webster. Jesse's story of meeting Bill Nye may be one of the most incredible celebrity encounters we've ever heard. Mikey Bolts brings in the man with tbe biggest forehead in the universe, Payton Manning, and Rucka brings in the notorious Gandhi. I round out the debate with a special blend of douche, U2's Bono, who's known first for being a douchebag and second as a musician.
We also got some awesome fan-art from Kisara Vera. This was her interpretation of my Gandhi argument this episode:
A note about the audio quality on this episode: I rarely pull back the curtains, but this episode was delayed because it was edited together using mix-down tracks that we usually only use for backups. Unfortunately, none of the mixdown tracks had all of the data we needed, so this episode was painstakingly combined using 8 different audio tracks + video (details below). The video won't always sync up to the audio, so this episode's video feed won't be made public, but you can watch it here. A lot of people have expressed interest in paying for weekly video feeds, so that may be coming in the future. Until then, enjoy:

And for those interested, here's a look at what goes into making the sausage for this show. The episode edits are usually not this complex. In spite of all the technical difficulties, the episode still sounds pretty decent:
And here's the jerkoff "running" a marathon in a gorilla suit. I want to reissue The Alphabet of Manliness with this guy getting punched on the cover:
