Episode 68 - The Art of the Public Freak Out

September 15, 2019

Join us this week as we discuss the art of the public freak out. The internet is filled with countless videos of people freaking out in public, and we analyze some of our favorites–including the infamous bagel boss freak out that went viral a few months ago. Yes, these situations can be sad when you consider what led people to loose it in public, but we can’t deny how hilarious and ridiculous they are too. So we thought it a perfectly thunky topic to discuss over some beers. Dive on in the tank!

Episode 54 - 2020 Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang

May 23, 2019

Have you heard of Andrew Yang? Chances are you have not, even though he is probably the smartest person who is running for president. In his own words, “the opposite of Donald Trump is an Asian guy who likes math.” We are all really impressed with Andrew Yang, and we wanted to help get the word out about his existence. In this episode, we talk about politics in general as it relates to the 2020 election and specifically Yang’s policies. He is most well known for his Freedom Dividend, which is a universal basic income of $1000 for every American citizen. Come jump in the tank with us and explore this really interesting presidential candidate.
