Ep #57: “Weeeeeee’re back! Hooah! Never zig when you should zag”

Hey hey, er bodayyyy! We back for mo madness after being stuck stir crazy with no podcasty for a month! We're all so glad to be back in the saddle again. The Critical Four are reunited by the power of witty sarcasm, dumb jokes, and Little Caesers' pizza! Hear about our experiences of Harvey's soggy, unwelcome visit to Houston. No box office this time. I'd like to give a good explanation, but there's only a stupid one: we forgot! Sorry, we're out of practice. Next time, there will be a box office... We promise.

Ep #56: “Harvey done lost our minds for us… But now we can float better!”

So we got REEEEEALLY late on this one... Apologies for the lateness from the chief producer's desk (Shawn). We got dumped on by Harvey (so very rude) and had a lot of other unforseen misadventures. But we're back atcha with another regular episode of the same good stuff! El Kyle was too tuckered out from work so we let him rest this time. So us other blokes made up for his absense with ridiculous amounts of madness. This episode starts out with us pinballing all over each other with witty banter, twisted rebuttals, and the half-awake nonsense of minds melted into comedic insanity!
