News And Politics Podcasts
We are friends of over 20 years and we go through the news, looking for the strange stories. We laugh at those stories, and travel down a strange, funny path from there. Each episode, we do a top 5 list as well as cover weird news, strange crime, geek stuff, current events, or anything else that we feel like that week. Podcast is released every Monday.
