League of Extraordinary Front-Men: Episode 97 – Kevin James Frear: Caravan of Douche (11/26/17)

For 97 episodes I’ve been writing witty show descriptions that no-one really ever reads. Sure, it seems trivial, but I put a lot of effort into each one infusing humor into these that goes unappreciated and turns out to be for my own entertainment. I could literally write anything here and no one will ever know. Here it goes: I’ve been secretly inserting subliminal messages into the podcast in order to manipulate my co-hosts to do my bidding. So far it only seems to be affecting AJ’s cat (see picture below), who during this podcast, literally stepped on Scotty’s dick. If I can perfect the hidden messages to affect humans, then the possibilities are endless. I know none of them will read this, so this secret is safe with me. Host Question: What are you most thankful of in the world of geekdom? Odd Comic and Live Show and Tell. Nerd News: Comics and some other stuff.
