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.
Sara Jean and John have some fun with the settings on the mixing board while discussing forbidden beats, old graduates and drunk animals. Somehow our hosts solve a mystery while Sara Jean tries to recruit women for a version of “The Dating Game” with John as the prize. John also pulls together an interview! Is he shy? Is he tempered? Well he is Corey Hall comedian, movie reviewer and fellow podcaster…or is he? Corey also admits to peeing his pants because he hates the cold? People should be jealous of John because his “boob” is a “neck”. Also, somehow this episode contains a spoiler for the movie “My Sister’s Keeper”.
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.
Sara Jean returns just in time for her birthday! A perfectly timed and executed show filled with presents, candy, sexy mannequins, and toilet snakes. Find out why John never wants to turn 51 years old and if Sara Jean would ever pull a gun on her sisters. Here are some tips: Don’t pee in Old Faithful and if you don’t want to be on The Oddist then don’t leave a drunk message on our answering machine because we will play it. A concerned letter from a listener creates questions about the show but everything works out because the “happy birthday” song in korean is cute.
