Episode 142

WW3: Kogdog vs TCB (with Neel Kolhatkar)

Holy crap boys and girls, do we have a huge episode for you this week. What we considered to be a lofty dream has now become a reality, teaching the boys to dream bigger. Anyway, the boys welcome YouTube superstar, stand-up comedy phenom and fellow podcaster Neel Kolhatkar onto the show.

We begin, however, with our usual dribble which includes an exciting update in Miguel’s DJ journey as well as a not so exciting update to Ro and Sen’s match fixing.

Next up is our interview with Neel. The boys have been fans of Neel’s for many years and they don’t waste any time getting down and dirty with him. We explore the nitty gritty of Neel’s career and life, including his humble beginnings on YouTube, being a viral superstar, his high school heyday, following non-traditional career paths as well as the origins of Kog Dog.

As we do with most of our guests, we end with the classic “What is the Question?” This time, Migs and Sen are pitted against Neel to see who is the ultimate comedian. In usual fashion however, the game gets derailed and we get sent down the garden path on a random tangent.

Also this week: Gatecrashing, brown tokenism, Kog Dog vs Rock Dog and the Tinder Swindler.

Segments this week:

The Logue: Tired of reaching around each other (at least on the podcast), the boys have instead decided to reach around the week’s news stories, events and viral trends.

The Reach-Around: To show gratitude and respect to our guest, and like all good hosts should do, the boys get around the guest in the most homoerotic segment in podcasting.

What is the Question: The boys are presented with an answer and they have to guess what the question is - the most humorous answer wins.
