1999 Commercial Break
Manage episode 299322466 series 2642720
Here's the YouTube video we're talking about. Thanks to Daves Archives for posting that.
Rob and Joe talk soft core poisons like the internet and television. Sure, these things are causing our souls to slowly deteriorate, but is that so bad? Like, really, what were our souls going to do otherwise? Were they going to frolic in a meadow or play electric guitar? Were they going to recognize themselves in the souls of others? Could there REALLY have been anything more gratifying to our souls than to laugh along to South Park so that Mike Ditka and Ben Stein could sell us things? Spoiler alert: Rob and Joe, as usual, don't know.
Note: This was recorded for a Patreon we decided not to launch. That's why it has a different kind of focus. But now we do have a Patreon:
