Happy All-Star Weekend, Utah. The entire world has decided to focus its attention on our snowy, mountainous state to watch a bunch of guys who generally wouldn't want to be caught dead here. In this episode Greg and Jordan are joined by Tom Sexton (@TomSexton) from the Trillbillies podcast to discuss the game, why Jazz Owner Ryan Smith is getting way too into it, and finally we also discuss a bit about how Utah has a senator who calls himself "based" on twitter.
Your favorite loverboys are back with a fresh ep off the pod press! In this one, we catch up on the Super Bowl, talk about the upcoming NBA All Star game here in the city, and review all of the amazing things our legislature is doing to fight this water crisis. Don't worry, they're doing a lot. I promise. They really are. Definitely.
We cover the insane catastrophe in East Palestine, OH, the SEC investigating The Church, and the scheme's our local politicians have been up to when it comes to "dealing with the homeless situation."
And finally, we recap those weird Jesus ads from the Super Bowl and dig into the people behind 'em. Not good.

This week, we're back and we've brought in our dear friend, Mark Agee, as reinforcements. We start things off with our thoughts on the return of The Delta Center, the Millers' continued legacy, and more.
In the Hell Lines this week, Greg takes us through what's been going on, including the Utah legislature reining their terror upon vulnerable people, "George Santos" and his love for dogs, and other lovely stuff.
And finally, the boys reminisce about one of our favorite trends: conservatives cancelling miscellaneous foods, appliances, and sneakers in the name of defending this great country. And, of course, cover the dangers of becoming too attracted to spherical candy.

And keep rockin' in the free world, friends.
Here is a Bonus! Jordan is joined by his wife Elise to discuss education and how it is being affected by the Utah Legislative session. We focus on the voucher system from HB 215: How it cuts funds, only benefits the rich and privileged, and does nothing to support rural students, disabled students, or multi-lingual students.
We then go on to discuss Todd Weiler's SB 100 on school's policies regarding gender identification, and how it makes for unsafe and uncomfortable environments in schools.
We close out with a discussion on Jordan Teuscher's HB 241, an strictly anti-union bill designed to starve public unions of money and kill their ability to operate at all in the organizations they serve.
All in all, a really horrific legislative session.
The boys took a night off to sit our asses down and listen to our friends help us finally pass the Bechdel Test for the first time in the pod's history, Madison (@madison_tayt), Suz (@TheSuzannahLee), and Ivy (@CelebrityGus)
In this episode they discuss:
It's time to talk about the year that was: 2022. We lived it. We loved it. And the boys enlisted the help of Brian and Josh from The Worst of All Possible Worlds to talk through all the big moments from the year gone by. And at the end, we give out the coveted, honorary awards to the year's biggest freaks. 2023 -- onward and upward.
(Sorry if the audio gets a lil weird toward the end. I had to edit in our backup audio lol)

Happy holidays, bozos. We had a lot to catch up on together... In this ep, we talk about an exciting local NFT export, Rocky declaring for mayor, and our upcoming Street Fight Radio appearance. Then, Greg takes us through his Hell Lines™ that include a local cookie company using child labor, OUR making a comeback, SBF's arrest, and more!
And finally, we talk through the recent waves of mass layoffs taking place across the tech industry, but hitting hard specifically in Utah... just in time for the holidays. We need a complete and total shutdown of economists until we can figure out what the hell is going on.

On the ep, the boys catch up on what we've been up to as a pod and talk about Joe Biden scabbing, Kanye's extended nazi media tour, Elon's brain chips, and more. We also talk about a good op-ed and reporting out of the SL Trib about the water situation and how we can't keep pretending like alfalfa isn't draining our state dry.
And finally, Jordan teaches us about what's been going on with the state prison being moved. Turns out that real estate developers have really bungled the whole thing, leaving extremely unsafe conditions at the new expensive prison, including a massive mosquito problem. Who would've guessed?
Here's some reporting on the prison topic from Paighten Harkins.
Outro song by SLCHC band Spent.

We're back! And it's a fun and not depressing one. The boys are joined by our friends Sean and Joey from the excellent Roundball Rock podcast. We cover quite a bit in this ep, including a recap of the Brandon Midterms, Elon's captaincy of the Twitter Titanic, and more.
Then, Jordan gives us one of his famous history lessons and covers the incredible journey of the Utah Jazz, which includes playing in comically awful arenas with floor nets, consequential involvement by a Saudi arms-dealer, Larry Miller making The Church proud, all leading up to Talen Horton-Tucker dunking on the Lakers in 2022.
Go check out Roundball Rock wherever fine podcasts are served. And go support Joey and Sean. They're cool and funny and I (Kyle) like them. Can't speak for Jordan or Greg.

The boys are back. It's November. A new month with new possibilities.
Greg updates us on his new career path! Catch him at a very special second-iteration of a very special conference definitely taking place next year.
In this ep, we catch up on what's being going on lately and buddy, there's a lot. We talk about racist Utah teenagers wearing some of the most racist costumes we've ever seen, Lula's extremely important victory over perennial covid-haver Jair Bolsonaro, The Church scheming in the outback, Saudis draining the American West, and more.
We're planning on live-streaming during the evening of next Tuesday's midterm elections. Catch us on twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/bympod
