DP E129 - Fanfare for the Common Merdog


Je suis Basil. Few things are more dear to humans than their pets. When Basil, Steve's miniature pinscher ate a crazy expanding mermaid, his family had only minutes to decide whether to wait for the 8" high dog to become an 18" long merdog or pay a butt-ton of money to have the offending sea creature removed. Get the full story this week. Plus a preview of a new professional podcast from Don't Panic Studios, including the search for the perfect theme song. Listen Like Share Repeat.


DP E128 - The Truth and Other Alternate Facts

The Don't Panic Radio Show doesn't care about your feelings, and artists don't care about your facts.  In this episode, Steve and Paul recount the day Steve accepted ZZ Top into his life.  After that, this episode goes straight into the toilet.  Literally.  Also in this week's episode, The Rapture, narcoleptic fork truck drivers, cigarettes, Kent State and the 80s, what aren't they teaching kids in school these days?  All this and the Facebook Question of the Week!
