The Best Debate in the Universe - There are a lot of shtity cults in the world, but on this week's episode, we decide which one's the shittiest, and why is it Steampunk? The debate this week: WHAT'S THE WORST CULT?
Monday August 21st 2017
What's the worst cult? Debate starts at 22:36. We're joined by professional Rugby player, Nick Mardi and model/actress Sarah Lea. They brought in the "Heaven's Gate Cult" as the worst, but they didn't foresee that I'd bring in a cult that has killed far more people with the permanent birth control that is Steampunk. Rucka brings in the Alt-right, but do they wear goggles? Who would you rather spend 5 minutes in an elevator with? It's a toss-up for me. Watch the video version here at Madcast Media Network YouTube channel:
Here are Nick and Sarah's Instagram accounts:
And here's Sarah's:
We also received another awesome care package from super-fan JIM. He sent us a follow-up to last week's package and actually included paper plates this time, calling Rucka's bluff.
And speaking of Rucka he brought the heat with the alt-right this week, and the debate delved into Antifa vs White Supremacist territory. Who wins? You, the listener. Mikey Bolts was sitting on a broken chair all episode that finally gave out near the end. See if you can tell when it happens on video (audio-only listeners probably won't be able to tell due to my masterful editing).
Also, a big you're-welcome to everyone who pre-ordered my book: F*CK WHALES: Petty Essays from a Brilliant Mind. The countdown has begun. October 17. Clear your year. Clear your life:
We round out the episode with a story about a man giving CPR to his pet tortoise. Here's an idea: maybe don't leave a tortoise unsupervised in your back yard if there's a pond? They're supposedly just like babies. I also learned that tortoises aren't water proof. Whatever, I am. And we also talk about a total badass who takes a nail to the chest and gets annoyed that he has to take time off work.
