Episode 19 of the Is This A Thing Podcast!

"Robo Lotto Black Friday 4000"

Potential Things This week: 

  • Soda Water Update: A "new manager type" gets all up in Marc's cup.  
  • Naming Your Car: All good names come about organically. Or come at the flip of a quarter and roll of a D6.
  • The Lottery: A tax on idiots. Like Akshat, apparently. Although apparently we're the idiots for thinking so.
  • Black Friday: This one's from the archives of two Thanksgivings ago. Support America. Support Black Friday.

Feliz Cinco de Mayo! On this holiday we celebrate many potential things. First, we get an update about the riveting Soda Water Controversy from Episode 18. A new manager gets a little over zealous. Then, we think about Car Names. Believe it or not, the film Herbie Fully Loaded actually covers the death of car personalities (and names) surprisingly well. Akshat then argues about the Lottery. He's not stupid for buying a ticket. You're stupid for telling him not to buy one. Finally we finish with one from the vaults on Black Friday and Thanksgiving. Thanks for listening!

"Just one word. Crankfest?"

Special thanks to Fletcher Magellan for our new theme song, "Oh, No!" off his upcoming album. Listen to it, and other singles like it on his Soundcloud.
