The Best Debate in the Universe - Michelle Carter, the girl who was at the center of a coerced suicide case has finally been judged as guilty of manslaughter. The ACLU has decried the ruling as having a potentially chilling effect on free speech. So the debate this week is: IS SHE GUILTY OR IS IT FREE SPEECH?
Monday June 19th 2017
Is Michelle Carter guilty of manslaughter or is it free speech? We have the famous or infamous (depending on who you ask), Joey Salads joining us for the debate this week. You may know Joey from some of his controversial videos on YouTube and his interview with Ethan Klein from h3h3 Productions.
Here is one of Joey's pranks where he has his friend pose as a bloody body in a suitcase:
And here's our own Jesse P-S from PodAwful doing his best Joey as Johnny Sandwiches:

We finally wrap up the episode with a guy who had a 29 lb poop, and a new diet to infuriate everyone except me, because I encourage it: "breatharianism."
The voicemail number is: 1-562-58-I-RULE (1-562-584-7853).
NY Times - Michelle Carter found guilty
LiveScience - Man's 29 lb poop removed
NY Post - Breatharian couple annoys everyone.
