Support the show on Patreon Field NotesThis week we're all in "the studio" together and we get personal as we reflect on our flop eras and social media regrets. Football is gay, and so are couches. GETTR fails to get 'r done, and we wrap it all up by watching some videos of parrots just doing stuff, as well as listener voicemails of course.Join the Thought Cops Deputy PatrolSupport the show on Patreon Join the Thought Cops Discord!

Case File 174 with Ian Erickson

Thought Cops

Now stepping up to the plate, Ian Erickson of Punching Up is back on Thought Cops for round two. Frick, now I'm confusing my sports metaphors. Support the show on Patreon Field NotesWe start the episode by cutting into each other, and it turns out that we were all cake. The whole time. Overrated joke, sure, but if we have to keep dredging on throughout this stupid ass culture war go ahead and stick our heads in the oven, because fuck it. This week we have an update on the Harper's "Cancel Culture" Letter (turns out they cancelled someone who signed it), blue checkmarks went to the Twitter version of a gulag, Taco Bell turns old menu items into cake, Goya Beans turns into a can of cake, and Cake Computers tells cakesumers not to put cake on their caketop camera, or else it will cake your cakecake. Cake.Join the Thought Cops Deputy PatrolSupport the show on Patreon Click here to buy Thought Cops shirts, hoodies, stickers, and mugs.

Thought Cops

Do the thing, this week we have Ian Erickson of Punching Up on Thought Cops. He does the thing. iTunes: Listen, subscribe, leave a review Support the show on Patreon Field NotesSPOILER ALERT. We put all the things we talk about in the episode IN THIS POST. Lurkers beware. This week, we challenge Justin Bieber and Tom Cruise to a pizza roll eating contest, and NEITHER of them take us up on it. Bad news for clown frogs everywhere, the "honk honk" meme got banned on Facebook. Also though, it didn't. Looks like FAKE NEWS is a... REAL PROBLEM! Also, hold off paying off your student loans until you're at the end of your life (65), because if you do, it will only cost you TEN DOLLARS. Looks like instead of food, my generation will be eating the old. Click here to buy Thought Cops t-shirts and mugs. Click here to buy some Thought Cops stickers.

Neighborly Dicks (w/ Ian Erickson)

Please Make This

Tim and Jim have never really gotten along. Neighbors since the births of their sons, they’ve felt a competitive spirit between them that has, over the years, started to erode their sanity. On the eve of their sons joint 21st birthdays their competition reaches a fever pitch, with both men spending and scheming to make sure their respective party is the most memorable 21st. As the parties devolve into a chaotic night of high-end electronics, fancy liquor, and famous bands, will Jim and Tim learn anything? Or will they just keep being Neighborly Dicks?
