Episode 190: The Incredible Musical Stylings of McGruff the Crime Hound

Everyone remembers the anti-crime dog with the trench coat and the sordid, checkered past, but did you know he also has an album where he tells people not to do drugs?

Episode 188: We Can’t Stop Talking About Quibi

The more we learn about this absurd streaming service, the more it makes sense. There’s some sort of morbid, magnetic attraction to finding out just why the streaming service that caters to people watching on their cell phones failed. And for the most part it’s obvious. Cause it’s a streaming service that caters to people watching on their cell phones. But how did we get here? How did we get to the point where Quibi is a reality? That’s what we keep discovering and when we discover more of that, we also realize just why it failed. So we’re stuck in this loop of reading more about Quibi and realizing why it failed and then more people release information about Quibi and we realize even more why it failed.

When something fails this fast, this hard, it’s worth studying, since so much money and so many releases just become staples of our lives and this one just didn’t in the most spectacular, expensive way possible. Also, we’re really just fishing to become sponsored by Quibi.

It is a nebulous flow of never ending ghost energy that permeates everything we do, think, and say and to that end, we got a bunch of updates of things we’ve already talked about. JK Rowling’s back, as is Quibi, and the 512 Pecan Porter flows like water. Come take dip in our smooth pecan info blasts. This week on Zero Credit(s).
