WWAP 029: western spaghetti
Everybody huddle up, it's time for More Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. We're chilling bones up in this one, chattering about such classic fear objects as spiders, darkness, water, and so forth. Oh, and you know that the Ouijia went and got up in the mix.
Some things that got cut out of this one: Terrace House burger date, Complete Caveman Exterminator Reversion Syndrome (cockroach attacks), Space Ghost Coast to Coast, etc.
2 more spooky episodes to go this season, friends!

Topics include: DEAD KEROPPI - SUCCUBUS COSTUME - PARANORMAL KINK - HAUNTED WATER WORKS
WWAP 027: Overchering
Let's see, what'd we talk about up in this one? Definitely talked about the volatile organic compounds that create the flavors we experience when eating fruits and vegetables. We talked about air stink (then and now), and Cher, and Madonna. We talk about how Bill & Ted might approach the whole Kill Hitler scenario, and we learn about cheerleading. We turn Kid in King Arthur's Court into a way of life. Oh, and we finally pin down where Chad at.

WWAP 025: Law & order: D&D
Soo, up in this one we're playing Dungeons & Dragons again for the ... second time? Third time? Something like that. Anyway, we're playing a stripped-down homebrew version of 5e D&D wherein our players take on the roles of young investigators working on their first big case. Listen along as they unravel this MAGICAL WHODUNNIT.
Good luck to you, Gumshoe!
Nom de pause
We have foregone the usual musical stingers and fun sound effects with this episode and we're bringing it to you raw and real. Instead we've got recordings of other people. People who can pronounce some of the strange non-English words we're discussing up in this one. That's right, this week we're talking about words we don't have in our language; words from places we're unfamiliar with, that describe concepts we are familiar with. We also brush up on our African geography, talk about how kites are made, and invent some new words of our own. All in all it's a fine time. Totally enriching
Alt. titles: COCK-A-DOODLE-BOOSH, French Stuff
WWAP 023: HYPNOPEDIA
After scouring the internet we have still found no copy of the audio from "Are We There Yet?: Songs for Tiny Travelers” by the Muppets. It was a Jim Henson joint from way back in ’89 and it’s just, like, gone.
Up in this one we highlight some small businesses on the tiny, isolated, cedar-shingled island paradise we call Nantucket. We’re talkin’ TUCK LIFE, we’re talking about THE HUB, we’re talking about HY-LINE CRUISES and we’re talking’ about MIACOMET GOLF COURSE. That’s right, y’all. We’re talking Whale Blood/Juice Blends, Kenny Fisher quotes, and the origins of our fox chant.
Oh, and we invent a new kind of cider.
WWAP 022: BIG WAVES // HIGHLY EROTIC
Happy Labor Day weekend, y'all! Time to put on our polyester pants and burn some food outside together. One last chance to relax before we have to pack away our propane tanks and white shoes until next summer.
Up in this one we talk about Gilmore Girls, and recall some of our most cherished summertime memories. Later on things get HIGHLY EROTIC
Alt. titles: Whole Lotta Gnar, Big Hypnotist, Broken Half-Open, Tubing All The Time, All My Dudes, Ghost Radio, Why Not Eat A Guinea Pig? and All So Salty
WWAP 021: Kelvin & kelvin
Up in this one we discuss the Dano-Norwegian concept of Hygge with Friend Of The Show Emily Hammerberg.
Joining us on this adventure are a couple of Average American Teenagers. You know the type; always watching old episodes of Cheers, talking about how great Dean Martin was, flossing disrespectfully at passers-by. Teenager stuff.
Later on, we debate the efficiency of a dog-based measurements for air temperature, but we forget to check the indexes. Folks, you've always got to check the indexes,
Cut your neck off, cake baby.
WWAP 020: huzzahs
Hey, we're hitting those double-double digits with this one, and you know what that means: time to check a couple boxes off on our List of Discoveries. Oh, and let's not forget that it's Hot Ball pre-season y'all, and Mr. Steal Your Grill has been sighted around the neighborhood.
Up in this one we talk about Cheer AGAIN, and demonstrate the Show Don't Tell approach re: stupidity/sweetness. We talk about Katrina Johnson's Ross Perrot, reference Gen-13, and give thanks to Michael Schenk for incepting our daily bread.
Proselytization or prostitution? You decide!
WWAP 019: Spoiled Milk
The Krakken awakes and awaits you beneath. Say "Elder Scrolls" out loud to yourself in a baby voice. Consider the French lycanthrope potion if you get hungry.
Up in this one we talk Mario and his whole thing. We also talk about Oblivion and Skyrim and ESO: Enriching Southern Optimizations Edition. Later we learn about drug-addled jungle-prowling murdercats. Later on we try again in front of a live studio audience, meet a troll wearing clothes who left its BDE at home.
Oh and you know we bringing the thunderstorm baby
WWAP #018: rigged electronics
This episode kicks off the unofficial second season of WWAP. We're in a different room, we've upgraded our equipment, and we've recruited a new co-host: Tully, a dog possessed by evil spirits bent on ruining podcasts.
In many way our new set-up is ... bad. Not good. Worse than before. On the other hand, our old first season tech didn't afford us the opportunity to travel to strange new worlds like outer space or whatever. They didn't drop us into the laps of strange farmers, or introduce us to any mole crittles.
Up in this one we learn about the secret tunnels winding underneath the surface of our world. We find out about the powerful magic fumes that linger deep within the core of our hollow earth. We're reminded how gunk spreads. Then we talk technology regarding a Confederate T-Rex.
Finally, we hum songs bad, chat about apps, and discuss fonts with Swiss watch designer Max Helvetica.
WWAP #017: Wolf Juice
Production hit a bit of a bottleneck last week and so we're dropping two eps on y'all this Friday to catch up on our release schedule. Slippery slopes and all that. This miracle does come at a small cost to our word count though, so this episode synopsis is about to take on a very flash card lightning round kind of feel:
UP IN THIS EPISODE we talk about She-wolves, Mixology, Sex Tapes, Neil Degrasse Tyson, obscure 90's boy/girl bands AND SO MUCH MORE
We are also joined this week by Sarah Connor, a real pirate, a space dinosaur, and a shy Parisian house cat named Toulouse. You're gonna love it!
WWAP #016: Hello sweden
So this is the episode we didn't ship on time. But this shit don't expire, y'know? You're not gonna get an ear infection from listening to week-old podcasts. Ask any doctor.
We spend a good deal of this week's ep talking about what we think happens when you die -- which is a pretty fun and funny premise for a "comedy" podcast, no doubt. We talk about about marshmallows and some of the heinous shit that people have been doing with them lately. We dip into magic a bit. We talk about what Macaulay Culkin does when he's Home Alone
Finally, we discuss the best little country on the planet. Hello Sweden!
WWAP #015: the one where they all watch tv
This one is real special y’all. Not only do we all get to kick back and watch some TV together, be we’ve got a special guest also! This week we’re joined by our friend and yours LAURIE MURRAY. We’re also visited by the cast of Community, The X-Files, and Happy Endings (kind of). Later on we talk Law & Order SVU for a hot second. Oh, and The New Girl comes up a bit toward the end.
So if you like TV, or podcasts about TV, or TV recaps or whatever: this I guess is the episode for you. And if not? I dunno, probably not really up your alley honestly.
We’ll see you next week when we return to our regularly scheduled program.
WWAP #014: Id4
Soo, this week the United States commemorated its Rebellion against The Empire for the 242nd time -- but that's not what we're here to celebrate. Today, we celebrate our second month online. Or our eighth week online. However you want to count it. We're celebrating ourselves and our stick-to-itiveness, which is theoretically an American value. So, yeah. We're patriots basically.
Up in this one we dig back into our box of alien stuff. We talk about Enrico Fermi and his fun paradox. We try to mash up Pump Up The Jam and the Mission Impossible theme. We talk about building a treehouse on the Yggdrasil and building a new life on a stolen battleship, and we plan our dream vacation to Sweden.
The back half off this ep is pretty heavily edited cuz we were kind of worried about Federal conspiracy charges (not a joke). What is left is fun and breezy. Sort of.
Thanks for sticking with us while we stick to it sticking it to 'em!
WWAP #013: a game for children
Up in this one we price out articulated skeletons, we witness the power of street knowledge, we uncover the truth about mice, and we finally get to the bottom things. Tragedy strikes with a sudden injury on the field, and we find out what it really means to be a Cheesehead
WWAP #012: PEn island
Up in this one we get Physics-ical and conduct some experiments on the subject of time dilation. Which is to say we recorded this on a different day than we usually do.
This session has been pruned to perfection and it includes such hot topics as: Philoso-raptors, Falafel Raptors, awful rappers, and exotic waterlocked dialects. We all kick back and imagine watching a cartoon called "Andrea, Opie, and Nightstick," and we try to do like a Field of Dreams kind of thing, but we're trying some summon spectral animators instead of sportsmen. Very different kinds of ghosts.
Still looking to secure a sponsorship with some kind of Ginkgo Biloba vendor or Fish Oil magnate. Thanks!
Honey & thunder
French travel tips for first-timers. Ancient Irish linguistic history. Low Country cuisine. We’re basically Rick Steves in this piece. We’re going to show you the secret back entrance to this podcast, ykwim? Up in this one we are delving. Every segment a delving, each deeper than the last. And it gets very very very vinegary very quickly.
Legit 5 star quality.
WWAP #010: CRITICAL RIBBIT
Up in this one we're visited by friends old and new. Bobby has a birthday party at the podcast and its attendants include a local frogpersonality and a renowned stand-up barbarian. We rub elbow bones with ancient undead royalty and regional heart-throbs alike. Things get out of control when we all sit down to listen to heavy metal while we do math together. Best party forever.
PS - We play Dungeon & Dragons
WWAP #009: Disney v. disney
War has broken out in the Magic Kingdom. The fate of the realm hangs in the balance. Sixteen combatants arrive upon the field of battle. Who will win the black polyester crown? Who will wear the oversized ears of the Mouseketeers?
Sooo anyway, up in this one we be discussing things like warfare, opium, Tasmania, and dem Wild Colonial Boizz. We talk about gnomes, we talk about The Misfits, but mostly we talk about Walt Disney Pictures. Basically we get mega Disnerd and quack our little hearts out. GO CHAWLIE!
Oh boy, this episode is a real wiggler. Up in this one we take some calls from our listeners, and they had that dang phone ringing off the hook like a runaway mackerel.
This is the episode where we finally figure out what to do about Wal-Mart AND what we're gonna do with all the motorcycles. We talk about the Pizza Bomber, raffle off some Time Traveling Concert Tickets, and we talk with a couple of real-life Frogmen. Oh, and Andrea breaks down the premise of the Dark Souls video game franchise.
Also: we have officially backed out of our endorsement deal with Sand, opting instead for sponsorship with Butts. Thanks Butts!
WWAP 007: - past tense - - future tense - - presidents -
Yeah, so, uhm, up in this one we talking about redoing the incarnations, we talk about some former White House residents (also The Presidents of the United States of America, the band). We talk about R Kelly worms and vampire fish and butterfly soldiers and SO MUCH MORE. Eventually I think one of the dogs falls down the stairs or something and Socrates II drops in to deafen us all with some mad science he's been getting into lately. Come, transcend your animal instincts with us!
The last 9 minutes or so are rated R.
WWAP: 006 Pizzas of AMERICA
OR: "EASTERN ORTHODOX STAR WARS APPRECIATION DAY"
We go off-railing in this one like somebody done dropped their coin purse on the tracks. But we do get into some pretty serious topics actually, like the human cost of our ongoing Pizza Wars. When will we give piz-za chance?
Anyway, the important stuff up in this one is STAR WARS obv, cuz it's officially Eastern Orthodox Star Wars Appreciation Day. Oh, and later on we get into an argument regarding the existence of a certain holiday song, which I'll go ahead and just link you to right now: CHECK IT
Yeah, that's right. It's real and it's fire. Merry Christmas h8rs. Have a happy Starday.
WWAP 005: Turtle alert
Here we go again, just a-huntin' for that nug. This episode is full of blips and bleeps and sirens (in addition to the usual screaming and singing and NUMEROUS UNTRUE STATEMENTS).
Up in this one we do some self-editorializing, we lodge some complaints, and we talk about video games, and we say a lot of bad words. In the end we all learn that you can't judge a turtle by its shell. We also learn some Home Alone II trivia.
Big thanks also to iwatchcartoons715 from DeviantArt for the very cool Koopalings gracing this week's episode artwork.
WWAP 004: Improv 101
This episode has got everything: Kindergarten Cop, 3 Ninjas, Harry Potter, The Lion King, Bring It On, etc. Plus you'll learn what to do if you ever find yourself stuck on an elevator.
In this one we discuss Andrea's magical capacity, gunplay, dog insurance, Kangaroo breeding techniques. Finally, we meet Samuel Sung, the world's first artificially intelligent television. SUCK IT!
WWAP 003: MUMMY DEAREST
Do you hear that? It sounds like the blues are a-callin' again. It smells like eggs in here. Ha! Goodnight Kansas City!
Up in this one we be talking about X-TREMEism, The Old Egyptite Days (aka The Triangle Times), Bogsurfing, and the terrible fate of Judah's daughter-in-law. Then at the end we talk about Star Wars and Game of Thrones for like 45 seconds. Missy Elliott plays us out.
WWAP 002: Welcome to the neitherworld
Lather on your sunscreen and strap on those eyeglass retainers cuz we're headed to the amusement park! Oh, and you may want to top off your vial of holy water and charge up your proton pack cuz these rides and attractions are EXTREMELY HAUNTED
Up in this one we be talking about Missouri Jane, Racerboi, Black Sunday, and the true nature of The Neitherworld. Pretty spooky stuff.

Up in this one we learn all about Jesus Christ, Julius Caesar, Napoleon Bonaparte, King Philip IV, Pope Clement V and we sit down with popular humorist Marco Julietti. Come get super-informed with us.
Promotional considerations provided by No Fear, Inc.
Soo, chronologically speaking this is our fifth episode, but we don't launch until next week and we wanted to put something up here. It's like a special bonus sneak peek of our terror-driven dry run. Up in this one we talk about dragon pee/angel skidmarks, WINE, football strategy, and we narrowcast at Travis McElroy Podcast Boy for, like, a few minutes it seemed like. great fun for the whole family.
