177 - The Uncomfortable Truth About Gandhi
The guys are back in the studio and it’s another episode of going wild. New game show idea: Hyenas talk and people bet if certain things they say are true or not. What do you think Cuz? We love it! This episode is about Gandhi and there are a few UNCOMFORTABLE truths about this Cuzzie. One of the most peaceful guys around, Ghandi was a civil rights leader from Porbandar, India. After living in South Africa and experiencing apartheid, Ghandi returned to India to gain independence from British rule. The kid liked to walk around half naked and promote the revolutionary idea that you can fight for something in a peaceful way. As you may know Gandhi was jailed for organizing protests, boycotting courts and more. He would even protest by refusing to eat for days. He famously protested the British salt tax and embarked on a month long walk to the Arabian Sea with thousands of people. And won! What a guy! But he also did some not good things. For example Gandhi believed in practicing celibacy and would “test” out his ability to refrain from lustful urges with young girls. GA-ROSSS! Listen to the full ep and hear how WILD he was and Gandhi’s enemies were too! REMINDER BABES: Even though Trump did not follow through with his promise to build a wall, Chris and Yannis did.

174 - History of the Comanches w Shane Gillis!
As Yannis Pappas is waiting for Beba Pappas to come into the world, we have the great Shane Gillis on as a guest host! Boys get straight into cars and how that the only dope thing about Christopher Columbus was that he rode into the Americas with wooden ships. Named after ladies that definitely did not have any fumare! Guys are talking Native Americans again and if we think that the holiday should be renamed to Indigenous Peoples’ Day brought to you by Christopher Columbus. Thoughts Cuzzies? Shane just finished a book from Joe Rogan’s reading list and came through to discuss badass Native Americans: The Comanche. The Comanche were from the Great Plains, which is considered Colorado, Kansas Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico today. They were some vicious dope horsemen that did some brutal things. In fairness, the settlers did try to take their land, so many raidings from the Indians and the new settlers that became the Plains Indian war starting in the 1850s. One of the most WILDEST stories was from Cynthia Ann Parker, a settler who was kidnapped in 1836, at age 10, by the Comanche war band. She lived with the Comanche people for 25 years learning the Comanche ways and forgetting English altogether. What is even WILDER what happens when her white family raids her tribe 25 years later? Be sure to listen to that story Cuz!! Chris Distefano tells Shane that he just got back from Salem, Massachusetts and he feels that things in 2020 are beginning to mirror what is happening during the witch hunts of the 17th century. For example who is going to be canceled next? They give props to Bill Burr’s monologue on SNL and that it was hilarious. He was doing what he does best, just tell jokes. Another great episode from da boys! Leaves you wondering: will you vote? Which way? Does it matter? Nothing matters.
