Episode Nineteen – America!

Released | Recorded

Happy 4th of July!

In honor of Independence Day and the country of our youth, we dedicate an entire episode to America! For this super-sized, All-American show, we’re joined by fellow patriots Dan Stern (Night Show Berlin), Zach Anner (YouTube & Oprah Winfrey Network), and musician Blake Worrell (Puppetmastaz). Fulfilling our manifest destiny, we explore turd floaters, American high school curriculum, electric toilet seats, drinkin’ beers in floaty pools, revisiting the deepest well in the world, the social media postings of American AND German hero David Hasselhoff, and much, much more. Also, thanks to CraftBud, our corporate overlords for this episode!

We now have merch! You can get a snazzy t-shirt or tote bag with our faces on it and support the show with your purchase! The perfect gift for yourself or a loved one (or an enemy?): http://piffle.tictail.com
