Ep. 57 - Video Gamesplaining, Level 1

You wake up in a small room with plenty of breakable vases. ""Professor Oak needs to see you, someone from the next room via a text bubble on the screen. Damn, looks like you're in a video game. Luckily, your Earth Ambassadors know all about that shiz. They even have ideas about the future of video games, and of course they have some lucritive virtual reality boardgame ideas.

Episode 56: Sausage Minority Report

Everyone’s grilling hotdogs and burgers this week, and they’re doing so while making things blow up. It's the perfect time to talk about Independence Day and freedom. Your Earth Ambassadors talk about their favorite freedoms and recommend the blending of a few choice holidays. Also, Jacob has an idea to stop hoomans from taking their freedom too far. And no, it is not butt stuff.

Episode 55: Captain Butt-Balls

Hoist the sails and fling the ditty bags. We’re on a booty hunt, and that's what pirates do best. Of course, not all pirates are created equal. Some are totally chill and some are total dick wads, pardon my pirate speak, but what could be better than sailing the open seas looking for booty? Watch your poop deck, this one might get dirty.

Episode 54: The Deep Dirty

This week, Aaron takes a trip to the deep, deep, dirty South to talk to another real-life Mississippian. Jacob is the odd hooman out as these two friends teach him how to dodge southern hospitality, explain the social awkwardness of institutional racism, and let the aliens know why “Missippi” is the best place on Earth to study fat people.
