Well the announcement has been made this is one of the 3 final episodes of this season’s podcast. Alex and John drink apple pucker and chat about eating silverware and having sex with dogs all while John does funny voices. Hear all of Alex’s big news and be fascinated by this total and complete show that even includes a guest interview! That is correct this episode has an interview! John talks with comedians Joel Fragomeni, from JoelRadio.net, and Harry “The Bat outta Hell” Artin. Joel thinks he has figured out why David Carradine died and how Balloon Boy disproves all UFO sightings. Harry just wants to pull the teeth out of a squirrel. After the interview is, of course, Waiting for Soup wherein Alex and John discuss some of the best movies you can watch during this Halloween season. It’s a long show clocking in at just over 2 hours but at least we’re giving you something to listen to as The Oddist starts to vanish into the ether. Happy Halloween.
Just when you thought the show had vanished into the ether. You were wrong! Although the shows aren’t posted as lickity-split as they once were here is a jam-packed 44 minute episode with everything you love. What do you love? Octoberfest, Old People, Sara Jean, Kayne West, laughter and stories. Find out about Sara Jean’s love of the “lazy river” and her encounters with cranky old people. Hear SJ sing songs about Father Abraham? The basement is filled with flies and creepy crawlers and if feeding the world means taking more tax money from John…then do it. Soda cans and swords, cheaters wearing signs and a story that lets John and Sara Jean take an imagination trip. If you didn’t love The Oddist before, you will now.
John and Alex tried to record a show after they recorded episode 15, thinking that John would get his act together and record episode 16 with Sara Jean. Of course that didn’t happen…but it will! So this is this is 17 as 16. Don’t expect anything fantastic as it is also the shortest episode of The Oddist ever. Coming in at just over 15 minutes you’ll thank whatever deity you might that it is not any longer than that. If you listen to episode 15 and John and Alex sound drunk…wait until you hear this slurring, babbling mess. Although John thinks it is “Pretty Good!” Hopefully the stories of Kenny Tessel, Fat smugglers and diapers will keep you coming back for the next REAL episode with Sara Jean.
Alcohol is a hell of a thing. John and Alex celebrate The Woodward Dream Cruise by not going to it and getting wasted while recording. Although John reveals the possibility of his becoming a television star if you listen underneath the drunken slurring of his words you find the pain and sadness of acceptance at parental mortality. Alex reviews the movie District 9 and brings us up to date on all the latest news involving glued penises, cat porn, grooming pubic hair, and dead bodies. The truth comes out about John’s dating status and during what is sure to be remembered as the worst shot ever consumed on the show, Elijah Craig Whiskey and Apple Pucker, it takes eleven seconds for our hosts to recover. If you don’t remember this show after listening to it no one will be mad at you because no one remembers recording it.
There have been many episodes, of The Oddist, that were recorded drunk and they sound drunk. This episode was recorded sober but it sounds like the conversations people have when they are stoned out of their minds. It’s good that Douglas Adams is mentioned because John and Sara Jean talk about life, the universe and everything…literally and demons, giant cows, goat kings, helicopter prison escapes and John’s baldness. What was Sara Jean in her past life? You’ll find out. What is Sara Jean’s big announcement? You’ll find out. You’ll also find out how the movie “Knowing” ends as John tries to save everyone 2 hours by spoiling an already terrible film. None of this show is right or wrong, good or bad because those are human created concepts dude…whoa, that is deep.
Since this is episode 13 The Oddist is officially half over for this season. John and Alex discuss prison penis tattoos, squirrels in shirts, the sex life of “furries”, and fist fights. Is John’s drinking becoming a problem? How do you get kicked out of a casino? Find out! A silly little episode that is everything you want from The Oddist. This is the perfect background noise for when you are home alone trying to figure out why you are home alone. Someone doesn’t make it for the “Waiting for Soup” portion of the show…Alex or John? Place your bets!
