Chapter 8: Aesop, featuring Mark McConville

Chapter 8: Do you have friends who insist upon doing "voices" for their idiotic dogs?  Well, you can blame the original animal anthropomorphizer, Aesop (Mark McConville). Join H.G. Wells (Paul F. Tompkins) as he delves into the mind behind so many lazy grasshoppers and eating dirorederd foxes. Have you ever wondered just what the true pronunciation of "Aesop" is? After listening to this, you will continue to do so!

Appendix B: Friederich Nietzsche and H.P. Lovecraft, featuring James Adomian and Paul Scheer

As you await the incipient arrival of Chapter 8 and dear Aesop (not to mention Chapter 2 and long-lost Robert Louis Stevenson), please allow H.G. Wells [Paul F. Tompkins] to divert your attentions with this particularly potty treasure (?) from our archives, with special (??) guests (???) Friedrich Nietzsche [James Adomian] and H.P. Lovecraft [Paul Scheer]. Note: if you are easily offended, you may find this one a bit challenging. Mostly because it very rarely makes any sense AT ALL.
