Every episode we blast anyone who gets in our way. We bring critical thinking, skepticism, and irreverence to any topic that makes the news, makes it big, or makes us mad. Itís skeptical, itís political and there is no welcome mat.

I fucking love this podcast. Just came across it and already obscenely hooked. If I didn't think the hosts were probably ugly black guys, I would stalk them and have their man-babies without them knowingcrazy ass bunny-boiler style. That's how absurdly awesome this podcast is. If I had friends, I would want them to be like Tom and Cecil (what the fuck kind of name is Cecil?).

By far the funniest show I have listened to. Stand aside Colbert... :)
