Look, we were going to post this episode ever, but we got soooo high, and, like, we were all whoooooa… I know I’m offending someone with this writeup, and y’know what? I’m sorry that your subculture has been co-opted by bros. It’s not your fault, and I shouldn’t be picking on you about it. I’m sorry.

Anyway we talk about weed in comics this week. Oh and Bry’s asleep, so he’s veeeery quiet.
