Trending Downward

This week, the guys get back to normal... just three mics, some familiar themes and a more-controlled sense of chaos. They discuss internet trends, why our fads were better than current ones, and even some of the biggest popular mistakes throughout history.

Also, we learn that Craig doesn't know what a trend is. Put pillows on the floor to catch your jaws. Trust us.

Babble of the Sexes

This week, the guys add FOUR extra mics, as they welcome in some old and new friends alike. And for the first time ever, it's an even split of men vs. women... so they dive into the topics that divide us, and try to find common ground in the first-ever NTS game show. 

Loud. Chaotic. Occasionally surprising. This was as fun as any recording we've done in nearly 100 episodes.

This week, the guys TRY to get back to a regular show format, but are completely thrown astray by their awesome guest (and old friend) Wayne, who hit them with unexpected discussions of infidelity, moisture, vasectomies and Comic-Con -- often in the same story. They also talk about the Fourth of July, and Craig's weird need to kiss the asses of celebrities.

Oh, it started out so well. We were going to talk about summer vacations and travel... then we started down memory lane and before you know it, we started a tirade against Native American fast food. Yep, it's silly and sloppy... but damn, we had a good time.

Chad Thai

This week, Brad starts out with some sad news, but with the help of Dave and Craig (along with some ridiculous headlines) the show manages to find a little catharsis along the way. From the peaks of Mt. Everest to the depths of straight pride and tainted Asian takeout, this episode turned out to be way funnier than anyone could have expected.

Though he may not have always been into this show's brand of humor, Brad's father loved the idea and spirit of Needless to Say, which is why this episode is dedicated to his memory.

Gorilla Cookies

This week, Craig, Dave and Brad decided they wanted to do a "back to basics" episode, discussing headlines, recasting "Sanford and Son," making horrendously tone deaf jokes and letting the conversation go wherever it wanted. The results? Well, have at it.

This week, Dave, Craig and Brad welcome their first guest from outside their collective gene pool -- comedian extraordinaire, EJ Edmonds. Over the course of a few hours, they cover the rules of comedy, sensitivity to jokes, bad music and the bullshit that is "too soon." Also, EJ explains how he'd romance Brad's dog … but you'll have to listen to find that part, PETA.

Banging Bigfoot

This week, after a show that got a little serious, the guys decide to turn off their brains and let their inner idiots take over. They cover a few "listener suggestions" that lead to bad dating advice and new theories on yetis and sea monsters.

Then, because it's tradition, we celebrate Dave's looming birthday with a little roast at his expense.

Oh, the Humanity!

This week, Dave, Craig and Brad cast their nets a little wider than usual, moving away from actors and movies to discuss the world's horrifying truths and shifts in humanity ... alongside the fact that most people just accept things as reality, even if they want something better.

Don't worry, there's plenty of mean jokes, too -- it's not like they're all "acceptable" and "decent" now. But it's a different kind of show for the boys, after a few weeks that seemed a little too much alike.

On this bonus episode of Needless To Say Craig and Dave ditch the other guys and bring in a very special guest -- Raeann -- Dave’s wife and Craig’s cousin -- to talk about their favorite show, Game of Thrones.

That's right, the ruler of Breastaros joins the guys for an in-depth discussion about the show and its horrible fans, making some daring predictions for the series finale.

This week, all four guys get together to discuss celebrity privilege, public perception, the fallacy of (most) charity, and Sally Struthers' rice-sprouting, fly-covered saddlebags. If that doesn't sound like a recipe for greatness, we don't know what does.

Also, Dave has a date with a 9-year old, Craig struggles with pictures of his cousin, Brad spits beer because of Melanie Griffith's lips, and Mike forgets where he is about halfway through the episode.

This week, Brad, Dave and Craig get together to dive deeper into their love of bad movies and worse actors, focusing mostly on those B-list celebrities who we all know by face, but definitely not by name -- the "That Guys" of Hollywood.

Also, the irrational hatred continues, with Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen getting the full Swayze treatment this time around.

This week, Craig, Dave and Brad hang out in the new Studio B to discuss Conan O'Brien's joke theft trial, hack comedians, joke stealing throughout history, and more chat about the "unwritten rules" of comedy. They're **obviously** not the experts, but it's an interesting conversation all the same.

The guys also make "Avengers" predictions AFTER the movie came out, and then get irrationally mean about Patrick Swayze. So there's that. #timing

The guys regroup after the weirdest week in show history to discuss the Notre Dame cathedral fire, religious symbols and overblown charity efforts. Of course, then they make a hard left turn to Game of Thrones, CBD burgers, Japanese drug classes and more. If you expected more structure, you clearly haven't been listening.

The night started out so well... An outline of topics. A well-composed intro about a specific subject. A light and breezy conversation to start the night. Then it went off the rails in all the best ways.

Dave's failures as a father (and a mulcher). Brad's failures in explaining Wrestlemania. Mike not knowing when to say when. Craig's ability to depress us with his memories. Doesn't matter -- the most organized part of the night was when the guys eloquently chat about shatty drawers.

And if you're wondering what the title of this episode means, you're already in the right headspace. Hunker down.

The Frayed Ends of Sanity

The world has been going insane for years, but we may have reached the point of no return. The guys get together in the Asylum to discuss Kristaps Porzingis, anti-vaxxer morons, measles in New York, denim panties and Elon Musk's rap debut.

Plus, we get creative and name beers after Ruth Bader Ginsburg. (Because that's what insane people do, right?)

Stay in Your Lane

This week, Craig, Dave and Brad revisit the topic of celebrity privilege, discussing why certain people, companies and ideas need to just do what they do, and not try to be more than they should. From Jussie Smollett and Rob Gronkowski to Kodak Film, Motley Crue and even a desperate housewife, the guys get deep. Maybe not as deep as Marcia Cross' doctor BFF... but pretty deep.

Also, Craig thinks he's right about English for most of the episode. Proving it's not just celebrities that need to stay in their lane...

Flaw and Disorder

This week, the fearsome foursome scrape the bowels of the internet to make new jokes about some really old laws. From horses in bathtubs, to Bigfoot harassment, and a whole lot of jokes about sex and weapons, they traverse the lower 48 for the funniest laws imaginable.

Craig also ruins Yoda for "Star Wars" fans around the globe. But you'll have to listen to learn how.

Karma: 1 - Judgment: 0

This week, Dave, Brad and Craig settle into Studio B to discuss the upside of St. Patrick's Day, the downside of "Smallville," the stupidity of Lori Loughlin, and the need to always pack extra underwear. Plus, Craig gives a real-time demonstration of how good Guinness Blonde can be. It's a chill, relaxed conversation ... at least until the guys exceed the legal limit a few minutes in.

(Pro Tip: The last segment is gross. Long-time fans will probably like this part the best.)

Nopochhio … No-Perry-o

The boys love discussing dead celebrities... even before they're dead. This week, they get into the life and times of Luke Perry, some unfortunate announcements about Alex Trebek and Henry Winkler, and they even create a new fairy tale - Nopocchio.

Graceful, tasteful and always focused on helping people grieve, the men of NTS want you to know we're here when you need us.
