    Dan, when are you gonna have podcast merch??? I can’t wait to buy some!!

    1. admin says:

      Done! First t-shirt is now for sale. The store is open! Thank you.

  2. Pete Sciarrino says:

    Great episode today Dan. I’m glad to hear you talking about Assad and how horribly the refugees have it right now. People are so blinded here in the west and it’s good to hear more people talking about it. Here is an interesting video that I found a while ago talking about our part and other superpowers involved in the war over seas.

      Thanks Pete! Really glad you liked it. Fascinating stuff. I could’ve kept researching for months on that one. Thanks for posting the video link! Keep on sucking.

    Loved todays show really changed my view on the whole thing and now i get a clearer picture of whats going on over there. Keep em comin :D. P.s turns out shaq is a flat earther too because of an audio clip that came out.

    1. admin says:

      Thanks Chris! I appreciate the feedback. And yeah, Shaq believes the nonsense too. WTF?

    God damnit dan

    First off, I love the show and thought this one did well to put some redneck dipshits to get pretty upset. I live in Springfield Missouri and I know that most the people here are close minded and dumb as shit who definitely hump on trump and look very narrow minded at the Muslim and Islam situation so thank you for making this so I can let some people listen and learn a little bit. Keep on going with this and one thing you could look into is the conspiracy theory about the Springfield underground and other underground tunnels which I’m pretty sure is related to the illuminati, even the lizard maybe too haha

    1. admin says:

      Haha. Thank you. And thanks for the topic tip about the Springfield Underground. I’ll put that on the list. Damn space lizards! Keep on sucking.

    Love the suck man!!!!! Really brightens my day in dreary northwest pa.

    1. admin says:

      Thank you so much Andy! It gets pretty dreary in Northern Idaho as well. I get it!

  6. Rob B says:

    I found you on Pandora then the link brought me here. So addicted, intellectual curiosity is the best way to describe what this podcast is. The topics are awesome, can’t wait to see what the next topic is. Thanks for all your hard work

    1. admin says:

      Thank you Rob! Glad you’re as curious about all of this as I am.

    I’ve commented on other episodes a few times in the past but this one was by far my favorite. I think the message and takeaways you had from your research is so critical and essential for the American population to hear. To stereotype one whole group as evil based on the acts of a few is incredibly ignorant, and unfortunately that is what far too many Americans do. We will look back on this time that we refused refugees and it will be compared to those countries that did not accept Jews who were fleeing from Nazi Germany. I agree that turning our backs on people in need based off prejudice and racism will only lead to more harm for the world as a whole. Love this shit man. You’re the tits and this podcast is the shit. Keep on keeping on.

    1. admin says:

      Wow Mike! What a great message. Feedback like that keeps me pumped out about this podcast. I really appreciate it. I learned a lot researching that one and I think you’re right – history will not look kindly on those who turned their back to these people.

  8. Kenny Wheeler says:

    Damn Dan that was a good one! I sure didn’t know most of that info about muslims. I wish more people would understand that they’re not bad people just because of where they were born or how they look…keep up the great work my brotha! PS I’m gonna write a song called “Satan Loves Boners” so thanks for that. Also this form is almost impossible to see on an iPhone…

    1. admin says:

      Sorry about the form Kenny – keep trying to have it tweaked. Eventually I’ll build a whole new website. Please send me that song if you write it – Satan Loves Boners sounds like a solid track. Thanks for liking the show!

    Ok you win. After months of listening to your pandora station (and subsequently pissing myself from laughter) i finally gave in and checked out the isis timesuck, and I fucking g love it. Being a military man myself, it’s nice to know the history of who we have been fighting for so long, beyond theiron fascination with the fornication of goats.
    ANYWAYS, now I’very started at episode one and have been working my way up navy killing time during game my 12 hour night shifts. I think a timesuck on the Vatican would be cool, or David Rockefeller and his family of money hoarders. Keep up the great work, and never stop sucking!

    1. admin says:

      Yes! Thanks McCabe. I appreciate the feedback and am so glad you like it. Good topics too – adding them to the list!

  10. Brad Leffert says:

    hey Dan, love your podcast, (Muhammad preached against having more than 4 wives, as you cannot EQUALLY split your affection). I have a topic idea for ya, Toxic Charity. When people go on missionary trips, and build schools and hospitals, they leave the buildings, but no people to staff them. The trips make the missionary feel better, but do nothing long term. I find it intriguing, and would love to hear your take on it

    1. admin says:

      Thanks Brad! Great topic suggestion. I’d never heard of that. Love the “Toxic Charity” title. Sounds like an episode of Vice – love that show. Adding it to the list!

  11. Rob B says:

    I had to listen to this episode twice so much information. Thanks for helping me and hopefully so many more people to begin to understand what Isis actually is. I by no means condone what they are doing. There are other lines of thinking that the U.S.and it’s allies were crucial in the rise of of Isis. when Bush part two toppled Saddam’s government. There could be an Isis take two podcast. I really appreciate the hard work you have been doing. Please keep it going sucking hard huge fan of all your work.

    So, I’m looking at Google earth and I can’t find a second sun while looking at Russia! Need sucking help!

      Haha. You can only see it when you close your eyes!
