The Rabblecast

Week in and week out, we do our best to bring different topics of discussion to the show. Current event stories, celebrity deaths, movies/TV, and few other things here and there. We really never know how the show will unfold with each episode.

This week's show is a great example. Jokes, riffs, personal moments, and a little bit of news all coalesce into our latest offering to you, the listening audience. We even managed to slip another "Horrible Events in History" segment(The Upstairs Lounge Arson Attack) in after a few weeks of going without one.
