Do you know what’s real? Time travel, false memories and cryptids ft. They’re Terrified and Tipsy
Howdy Moosfits! Or is it Misfits? This week’s episode will have you questioning what’s real and what’s not! First, Emmy takes us through the age old question: are the writers of the Simpsons time travelers, or just really f*cking smart? Then, we play the “guess the cryptid” game with the lovely ladies from “They're Terrified and Tipsy Podcast”, where we all have trouble naming the difference between a cryptids other strange creatures like Pokémon, dinosaurs, mops.....(?) Then, Steve discusses the Mandela effect and our collective false memories — from celebrity deaths to “kit-kats” and the “Berinstein bears”. Oh, and Steve also takes us through his *real* Pokémon tier list — and Emmy doesn’t necessarily agree with all of his choices.  If you want to hear more from Steve and Emmy, remember to tune in every Thursday for more mind-blowing and hysterical content.

Steve Sees a UFO, Dr. Love, Inuit Folklore, and Kid Nation Ep. 9
What a week, Misfits! Emmy and Steve are comin’ in HOT with their first episode of 2021. First off, Steve tells us about his very first UFO experience (or should we say UO experience: we’re not sure if it was actually flying). Then, Emmy dives straight into ~ Dr. Love ~, who is, in fact, not a porn star but rather the infamous 17 year-old boy who somehow conned his way into being a successful, albeit very much illegitimate, medical doctor. Next, Steve takes us on a wild ride with some Inuit folklore. Moral of the story? Don’t hang out around Arctic waters, or you might get snatched up by a disturbing “tickle monster”. Finally, we finish off the episode with Episode 9 of Kid Nation, where there are some SERIOUS divisions within the Town. If you like Weird Al and/or craft beer (c’mon, you have to be a fan of at least one of the two), check out our friends at the Beerd Al podcast.
