This is it! The halfway point of no return! The first meeting of co-hosts! Listen to the excitement of Alex and Sara Jean trying to hold the show together while John slurs words and makes little to no sense. News stories are read, sounds are combined an iPod Nano is given away in the most confusing of manners. The silliest of shows but still containing, what could have been, startling stories of suicide and battery attacks if John would have been coherent enough to string a rational thought together. If you’ve never experienced someone who is in the “I love you guys” stage of drunkenness then enjoy this laugh packed show.
As soon as the Jim Beam shots are consumed John and Alex find themselves in a world of fire baths, bra prices and prostitutes. It also seems that Jim Beam is an actual truth serum. Find out if it was John or Alex that kissed a boy and which one of them only had a crush on a boy. Dirty refrigerators and a penis being bitten off are the last hope for humanity as John discusses the time he was dead. Waiting for soup is the usual trainwreck and John didn’t know that Alex was “fake” drinking at the bar. Alex believes this show really “tests” the listeners.
What was supposed to be a nice short show turned into one of the longest episodes in the history of The Oddist. Alex and John weigh themselves, discuss shopping and what happens when you “break” an erection. For the first time on The Oddist there are two guests, brothers none the less, who review films, talk of tanning and police training and one even admits for the first time he may actually be in a relationship. Check out the extra eight minutes of this show on www.iheartalking.com when people phone the show, as requested, and John messes the whole thing up.
I made a choice to not do an interview on this season premiere episode so that the audience could focus on the first of the new co-hosts Alex! News is read, Drinks are drinked and a new mini-segment that Alex calls “Waiting for soup” and I call “the sandwich.” A short little season opener to get everyone warmed up. It gets a little nerdy but that is mostly because John and Alex are nerds. Thanks for listening and welcome back!
