Think the world’s gone crazy? So do we! Join us this week as we deep dive into the madness that is the U.S. President Donald Trump’s declaration of a National “Emergency”.

January 6, 2019

In this episode of the Thunk Tank Podcast, Johnny splinters off and sits down with jazz trumpeter and friend of the podcast Charlie Humphrey. They drink some delicious beer as usual and dive deep into the works of Dan Harmon, especially the shows Community and Rick and Morty. Dan Harmon’s writing, besides being hilarious, is often about deep topics such as death, nihilism, and finding meaning in life. If you’re already a fan of these shows then you should enjoy listening. And if you don’t know these amazing shows, then start watching them tonight please. Maybe this conversation will convince you to check them out. Hope you enjoy!

Episode 37- 2018 Year in Review

December 28, 2018

Well 2018 was a pretty weird year so there was way too much to talk about. We covered a range of 2018 topics including the creepy magic of Santa, the porn star banging by President Trump, and the possibility that our simulation overlords are turning up the weirdness just to mess with us.

We also talked about some of the weirdest news stories of 2018, including China’s plan to build an artificial moon (aka space mirror) and the discovery that crows sometimes try to mate with their dead friends. We hope you survived 2018, thanks for listening, and Happy New Year to all!!
