From the website:
" WELCOME… to the WORLD OF TOMORROW!!Yes folk, it is 2017 and we are here with a brand new pod for everyone to sink their ears into.
To start off this year with a rousing yet, at times, controversial bang we are talking politics. The folks here cottoned on to our news worthy last year and start to this year and thought they would ride the wave/contribute by talking about comics that are politically based or have a certain political theme/satire about them.
We also discuss what we got, picked up or interested us over the holiday season. We then sneak in a few news talking points at the end.
Join us. Pull up a chair. Become the 6th member at the table of discussion from here in the kitchen. Most importantly, enjoy episode number 7 of “That Comic Smell”
