Thanks to Rachel having to go and nearly die, this episode took a little longer to come out than expected. But once again, she and the “disgraced” Edwin Oslan are back to discuss the topics of the day, along with make jokes at the expense of minorities, women, people who are on the “spectrum”, and people of non-normative sexual orientations. They’re also joined by Ben Arzate, author of the short story collection The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Saying Goodbye and the novel The Story of the Y, which will be out soon. You can check out Ben’s blog and purchase his writings here.

Over the course of this nearly two hour abortion, we discuss Ben’s writings, why Rachel has a hyphenated last name, what’s wrong with modern psychology, Rachel’s recent near death experience, the healthcare issue, Trump’s white house fast food feast, Janeane Garofalo’s “beyond the pale” defense of Louis C.K., and some other stuff about some other shit. And, of course, we make jokes at the expense of minorities, women, people who are on the “spectrum”, and people of non-normative sexual orientations.

For Sounds of Marshabaloosh, I said, “fuck the man!” and played the totally copyrighted “Tribulation” by death/thrash metal band Possessed, because I saw them recently, and, well, “fuck the man!”

As usual, the song at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles, and Rachel did the amazing artwork.

Listen to it on youtube, as well!
