150 – Very Concise Season Finale
Not... Look, we go into every episode with a plan, maybe not the most detailed plan, but some semblance of a plan. Sometimes we hit our marks and other times we go off script and talk, at length, about the various contexts of the word guzzle. This episode is definitely of the latter's persuasion and honestly it's fine, it's our bread and butter. Disjointed, incomplete, often wrong - that's Totpod to a T. An hour or so of honest conversation, that's what you'll get every week and will continue to get every week until life (or the authorities) force us to stop. So for our Season 3 finale, we offer to you the same as we offer you every week - Chaos. This week's topics include: Pokemon, Cartoons, SNL, Resolutions, Books, Internet, Dogs vs. Cats, the word Guzzle, Movies, Porn, and everything in between.
