West x Midwest
A couple pieces of shit on the internet.
Episode 45 (12.19.13): West X Midwest's End of the Year Holiday Spectacular!

One for all, all together! For the second time this year, the boys are in the same city to record the holiday episode of West X Midwest. Gifts are exchanged, resolutions are made and holiday cheer is spread like a stick of butter in your arteries. Topics include diet tips for the new year, fried meat and naked family hot tubs. Also discussed: moobs (man boobs), wacky Christmas traditions from around the globe and Rob's overt sexism.

Later the boys play a special holiday edition of Mad Libs and the big boss man, executive producer Ed Grabow drops in to make sure everything is on the up and up. Will he continue to allow this poor excuse of a podcast to exist or is he going to pull the plug?

Happy holidays to you and yours from West X Midwest. See youse next year!

A bunch of random fools on Google+ actually joined the boys Monday night as they recorded live! You should too.

This week, Chuck and Aral put their producer Rob on the spot begging him to let them crash at his new house...will he let them? Aral talks about his trip to the St. Louis Arch, the boys talk JFK as well as taking selfies. They also discuss how you can get a free subway train ticket in Russia, Walmart holiday food drives and a mog - a man who acts like a dog. He's his own best friend.

In the second half of the episode, the boys welcome the beautiful and talented Rochelle Clark, from the music duo The Potter's Field. She graces the show with an acoustic version of their song "Ghosts".

Episode 35 (10/7/13): "I had a McGrope, dude.  It's delicious!"

The leaves are falling, the goverment's shut down, and the boys are still hanging out.  It must be October in America.  This week Chuck is personally affected by the shut down, Aral gets a free vibrator, and the boys discuss how much is too much weed, what happens when you treat your car like private property, the awkward relationship they have with "King of the Hill," and having sex with tarantulas.  Listen as this week's guest, actress and comedienne Kellie Stonebrook throws her voice (we swear!) and does some fun celebrity impressions...and maybe does a dead on imitation of on of the hosts. Check out more about Kellie's (and Teddy Cuddles') storytelling business, Fairy Dust Theatre.
