The Best Debate In The Universe - Episode #86
January 29th, 2018
While a lot of websites that rhyme with "sludge feed" reminisce fondly about the 90s, it's also the decade that gave us Kid Rock, shitty sitcoms and Dave Matthews Band. So the debate this week is: WHAT SUCKED MOST ABOUT THE 90s?
Sonic Boom writer and story editor, Alan Denton and fan favorite Caitlin Hall joins us this week to debate what sucked most about the 90s. Caitlin very craftily avoids mentioning boy bands when she criticizes the music of the decade, only to have me take a big dump on the "bad boys" of the 90s. Alan brings in a forgotten relic: America Online, and we learn that they employed child labor to keep the service running. Rucka's long-shot pick is flannel, which everyone seems to think is awesome and for lumberjacks, which is only something you'd know if you jack lumber like I do. Watch the video version here at Madcast Media Network YouTube channel:
Rucka unintentionally spawned a mini-debate near the end of this episode that was almost as long as the regular debate: is $300 a good reward for saving someone's life? He seems to think it's worse than $15 for saving a dog's life. This was almost the second debate question this week, but we ran out of voting options so chime in below. Also if anyone listening knows about the incident Rucka is talking about in Michigan, please let me know. I want to track these people down.
And here's the new bonus episode:
Also, a big you're-welcome to everyone who ordered my book: F*CK WHALES: Petty Essays from a Brilliant Mind:
Finally we round out the episode with an article from Cosmo where a woman makes a mold of her husband's penis and then talks about it (and shows it) in the magazine. I hate everything about this. Link below (NSFW).
