It's been a LONG time since technology bit the guys in the ass, but that's exactly what happened to 6+ hours of audio from Rhode Island Comic-Con, turning amazing interviews, jokes and ballbusting into a mess of unlistenable white noise.
Still, this is Needless to Say. The guys regrouped, recovered and recapped the weekend, trying their best to laugh. And as you'll see, no one makes tragic lemonade, quite like them.
This week, the guys get nostalgic about Halloween movies, go through some creepy (for the wrong reasons) headlines, and debate which horror legends would be the best in bed.
They also cover their plans for this year's Rhode Island Comic-Con (yes, there's beer involved). 2/3 of the guys love this holiday - come see why.
This week, the boys decided to go back to the skull for some random inspiration. And in between all the usual discussion of bad movies, hot '80s actresses, travel and dream bands, they learn something ... "special" ... about Brad.
Also, we learn how Dave and Craig's wives really feel about them. (As if we didn't already know.)
No need for long descriptions. This one's funny - dive in.
This week, the guys welcome Cousin Jonathan to the studio to discuss Vladimir Putin photo shoots, sex doll marriages, outhouse "artifacts" and how Paul was a spammer to the Corinthians.
We're not sure how this became an episode, but it did. So have at it.
This week, the guys get together for a lively discussion of bad luck bison, intimacy anorexia, racist reporters and Maitland Ward ... who made the boys "meet world" several times before recording the episode.
Also, they do a game entirely about Craig (where Craig came in last) and make good use of the word "boink." Because... NTS.
This week, the guys dive right into some more discussion of the ridiculous vape "crisis," Craig and Dave's latest movie review, and some really crazy ways people died over the years ... including one that involved soup. Yeah, they weren't expecting it to go this way. But when do they ever stick to the plan?
Big thanks to Endeavor Podcast Solutions for sticking with us... even though we keep giving them reasons not to.
This week, the guys go it alone, revisiting some pressing topics, like censorship, bans, cancel culture and revisionist history. From Shane Gillis to Antonio Brown to Justin Trudeau, it seems like everyone's struggling to escape their pasts... even though they probably shouldn't have to.
Don't worry, it never gets too serious. They also discuss vaping, Craig's yard planning, Brad's latest bout with NYC hotels, and Dave's family kissing problems.
Stop everything! A wannabe nerd show runs into a real one? And then there's lots of joking and ball busting? Yeah. you want to be here for this one.
For 2.5 hours on Friday the 13th, the guys discussed horror movies, fantasy culture, Star Wars and much more! And no one cried or stormed home to their moms.
This week the guys SLOWLY get back into form by doing what they do best -- praising those who find humor where most people never look. They also delve into the logic of a comedy icon, explore the religious threats of a fictional wizard, and wonder whether adult entertainment will one day need more mechanics than fluffers.
Also, we cover Fred Durst's collaboration with John Travolta ... because that's the world we live in. It's a slow-burning 90 minutes that gets a fiery boost from alcohol in the second half.
This week the guys try out a new studio for a night (with Dave's wife and brother-in-law, to boot) but settle in comfortably by covering familiar territory. Craig is reminded that his face is always a target. Dave still forgets his wife. Brad is still on the girly seltzers, meaning the dead still aren't safe. And we anticipate the awful reasons some of us will be remembered.
To cap off the night we pull out the big guns and recall the impossible, unbelievable, "its-so-crazy-it-has-to-be-true" legacy of local legend, Uncle Ray. There's a ton of hard laughs on our way to answering the question, "Why, Ray?"
What happens when you add two mics and four X chromosomes to Needless to Say? Utter and complete chaos, that's what. We recorded nearly three hours of raw audio with our friends Kristy and Mandy, covering a WIDE range of topics, and all that survived was the 1:25 you see here.
But that doesn't mean we didn't have a blast doing it. By now, you know what to expect, and this episode delivers in every way.
Chairs creaking. Cans launching. Coolers slamming. Planes flying. Crickets mating. And in between those sounds, Craig, Brad and Dave discuss Jeffrey Epstein, Patricia Heaton, advertising censorship, deep fake videos and about 400 other topics.
Noisy as hell but worth the headache, it's the guys how you expect them to be. (And trust us, the show title will make sense about three minutes in...)
This week, the guys limp and crawl their way back to the table to kick off their second 100 episodes. And along the way they discuss some unfinished business from last week, take a few shots at redeeming themselves, then break into the skull for some more randomness about comedians, horror movies and -- ahem -- recent mistakes they've made.
(Also appearing: One mouse and one skunk...)
If you were worried that Needless to Say was going to change and evolve, this episode will be all the reassurance you need.
After a few weeks away, Craig, Dave and Brad are back to celebrate 100 episodes of Needless to Say... The boys get a little nostalgic about the show's best moments, pay tribute to a local furniture hero, then share the worst, most offensive seven minutes in our podcast's history.
Also, a lot of friends and family share their best wishes on our big milestone (well, most of them anyway). It's a fun, occasionally nice, but still ridiculous episode that should tug on your heartstrings, as well as other body parts.
Sincere thanks to everyone that's stuck it out with us -- if you ever took part in the show, we thank you, even if we forgot to mention you on the air. We owe you the world.
In the final show before the guys celebrate 100 episodes, they start out asking some deep questions about weather, climate and natural disasters. Then they get back to normal by making fun of Area 51 raiders, Bagel Boss jackhats and the amazing Running Butthole Challenge.
Despite their better judgment, this is also the first episode sponsored by Endeavor Podcast Solutions (@podcastendeavor). We just hope it won't be the last.
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.
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.
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.
