Host/Guest:

Brian Quinn

Quotes:

“Tough shit, I don’t care about your feelings.  I really don’t” – Bry

“That girl was at Aretha Franklin’s funeral?  Are they that desperate for the celebrity of the week that they have the Situation and fuckin Ariana Grand at a  legend like Aretha Franklin’s funeral?” – Walt

Memorable Moments:

Walt puts out the call for listeners to send in letters to the Secret Stash for Christmas this year so they can be read during the holiday special.

Bry doubles down on the no handshake policy after getting sick again after a con.  Q confirms that his brain virus was due to shaking hands at a Tenderloins meet and greet and that’s why they don’t do them anymore.

To avoid handshakes Walt suggests just hugging which leads Bry to discover an article that says humans need at least 8 hugs a day for their physical and mental well being.  He finds the claim dubious as he is surrounded by huggers at home and does not feel the positive effects.  Q talks about hug therapy and hug groups where people pay for human contact.  Is this considered cheating?

A preacher at Aretha Franklin’s funeral is called out after making a Taco Bell joke about Ariana Grande and gripping her side boob during a hug.

New Halloween episode of TESD to drop soon with bonus video from Patreon.

Q admits he has already worked on a public press release for when he finally needs to denounce Bry for his stances on TESD.

Bry talks about Louis C.K. and how he has become black listed in comedy.  Can people demand money back for being offended at a comedy show?

Sunday Greg – I am 148
