The Butt Plug Railgun

Tuesday Feb 20, 2024

Tuesday Feb 20, 2024

Ryan takes to the streets with Cap to patrol the internet in search of questions and topics in need of vigilante illumination. Ryan provides an update on the state of the show, before they dive into the hows and whens of doing the gritty at a funeral, taking breastmilk baths, before ruling on whether there is a connection between Impossible Meat and Planned Parenthood. TW: This episode does feature discussion of abortion and cannibalism, but that's the price of exploring the MAGA web I guess. Finally, Cap dives into whether a viral image on the internet faithfully recounts an occurrence of a butt plug railgun.

In this wild episode Matt and Ryan discuss deeply personal healthcare stories, tease a whale milk topic that you heard last week, and generally conduct themselves like over-caffeinated class clowns. But in the process they help an r/nostupidquestions asker embrace their inner Mandolorian. Then they weigh the pharmacological benefits of hotboxing crustaceans, before discussing how to make the humans of today the sentient crabs of tomorrow. Find the show on all social media platforms @wreckyourpodFind Ryan on Instagram but not on Twitter @foodicide

The Taylor Swift Lifestyle

Tuesday Oct 03, 2023

Tuesday Oct 03, 2023

Ryan invites Ian Mauldin to dust off his microphone to talk about all of the internet's hottest topics from several weeks ago! First they throw a wet blanket on Burning Man, before discussing the impact the Taylor Swift Lifestyle can have on a relationship. Then they discuss whether a human being like you and me suffering from lactose intolerance can safely pop a big old rubber whale nipple in our mouth and suckle. Is it cetacean good or is it cetacean bad like this joke?

Ryan and Cap shoot the breeze about Sci-Fi, seeking to know what Sci-Fi is and whether it can tell us anything about ourselves. They also make some fart noises and go on some pretty gnarly tangents.

Dispatches From the Cola Wars

Tuesday Jul 18, 2023

Tuesday Jul 18, 2023

Yes,  there's a heat wave, but there's nothing more refreshing than rubbing a cool new episode against your earballs. Ryan and Matt start off by taking on an r/AskReddit question about the soundtrack in Hell, before taking on a hellishly tumultuous family feud pitting two golden children against their jealous siblings in the Case of the Stolen In-laws which comes to us courteous of r/AmItheAsshole. Then they take a dip into a purported image of Presidential loser Donald Trump rescuing cats from dangerous flood waters found on Facebook. Then they wrap up the episode with a pair of insane topics that prove that capitalism can make even the softest drinks go hard with death squads and naval armadas.

Happy Halloween! For the second annual Don't Spook Yourself Halloween spectacular, Ryan is joined by the incredibly spooky Catie Stroud and absolutely kooky Cap from Shrimp and Crits.

Then they delve into the darkest innermost reaches of the human soul when they answer a cry for help on r/AmItheAsshole dealing with a radio famous monstrous goat sucker. Then they discuss some junior grade suckers being scammed by a post from r/UnethicalLifeProTips. Then they hop onto a vintage meme showcasing the fight against monstrously large grasshoppers in the American west. Finally, our trio of Halloween experts stir the cauldron by helping a user from r/NoStupidQuestion dress themself for the biggest spooky day of the year.Also, we've hidden some weird treats throughout the episode.

A Classic from the Archives, one of Ryan's personal favorites because Matt is totally on top of his game!__________________________On this week's episode, Matt and Ryan celebrate a minor production milestone: six months of podcasting. Then they help the desperate souls of Reddit by tackling their most challenging r/nostupidquestions question yet in which the asker would like to become less stupid. Then they plug into a Black Mirroresque story out of the UK that is too graphic and horrible to describe with any level of anatomical precision. They turn their attention to the font of very much not stupid questions again, but this time the question asker is inquiring about what happens when you put a grenade in a microwave, and we answer the question because we don't think anyone is smart enough to decode what we want. Finally, and possibly forever, they discuss meme reports about QR codes going up on Japanese gravestones.__________________________

Ryan is joined by Ian, world renowned podcast editor and table top RPG personality to discuss the topics Wrecking the Internet. They start off with a topic from r/RandomThoughts about the films we see that haunt our very souls. Then they dig into a topic from r/ELI5 (Explain it Like I'm 5) asking some pretty hard, and frankly disturbing questions about Tug of War safety. Then they way into a pair of topics r/AmITheAsshole which have two Redditors asking the internet if they were jerks to disabled strangers...

Mr. Ed is My Work Husband

Tuesday May 30, 2023

Tuesday May 30, 2023

Ryan and Matt take on a lot of work topics in this episode! They start off discussing a fated golf game in which a junior partner at a financial firm publicly spanks rootin' tootin' Texas oil tycoon, costing his company a key customer, and his boss wants to know how to handle it. Then they discuss an incident in which an employee's dissatisfaction gets back to a boss, creating a delicate situation. Then they tackle Elon Musk's egalitarian take on Work from Home, which, like Matt's microphone in this episode, sucks ass. By the way, Matt's microphone in this episode was a backup model with poor sound quality. We apologize for that, but we won't apologize for rounding out the episode discussing whether a new worker on a horse farm is going to have to engage in some quid pro quo with his equine employers.

Sunday May 21, 2023

Ryan and Cap reunite for some pretty questionable questions. First they answer a question from r/TooAfraidToAsk that will change the way you look at genitals. Then, speaking of things people lie about the size of, Ryan and Cap swap fishing stories as they analyze a portrait of gargantuan tuna. Then they wade into another ocean life related question, as they discuss a family's psychopathic ritual crustacean murders... no really. Then they discuss the bathroom etiquette of the dildos you live with and the dildos of the dildos you live with... it's like a Russian doll, but dildos, like a Russian doll painted to look like Vladimir Putin, the biggest dildo in Russia.

The Dork Side of the Moon

Sunday Mar 19, 2023

Sunday Mar 19, 2023

Ryan, Matt, and Monica eat their protein pills and put their helmets on before launching into a slew of Moon related topics. First they establish the facts about when exactly it's 4:20 on the Moon. Then they educate some fellow podcasters about the geological history of the Moon and also, sorta, dinosaurs. Then they tuck into a delicious topic, the literal breakfast of champions: the "traditional" astronaut breakfast of steak and eggs. Then they dive into the blackest hole in the universe, r/AmITheAsshole, with a question about whether or not it's okay to opt out of your high school bully's cancer fundraiser.

No Time for Balls, Dr. Jones

Monday Mar 06, 2023

Monday Mar 06, 2023

Ryan and CJ analyze a viral video from Facebook purporting to show the death of an Indiana Jones stunt performer. Then they provide an exceptional value to folks online looking for the cheapest possible legal opinion by weighing in free of charge on a question by someone considering a lawsuit against their neighbor for beekeeping. Then they settle a question posed by a TikTok user who wants to know which sportscar is most likely to get pulled coming out of the parking lot of a bar. Then they try to break down the science of a penis moving at a scientifically unlikely velocity.

Matt returns for an episode to help break Ryan from a news cycle that will not die not matter how many Executive Branch officials have to get raided by the thugs of Joe Biden's crooked FBI (that's a joke, but seriously, you're great FBI, no notes this time.) Matt opens up the show by spinning a tale of deceit, lust, intemperance, and a lovely Delta Airlines customer service representative named after a snack icon Little Debbie (I assume). Then they go on to discuss a final, yes FINAL Groundhog's Day themed question shared by listener Diana, followed by a second topic  from Diana about a snow plow naming contest. Finally, Matt and Ryan offer some commentary on the discourse surrounding recently lost Chinese spy balloons.
