TSOM03: Jugga-No-No…The Psychopathic Records Immersion


For this episode, the crew dares to listen to multiple selections from the Psychopathic Records catalog with a specific focus on the recordings of Insane Clown Posse. They are joined graciously by a gentleman named Nemo, who is a contributor and writer at Faygoluvers.net, a fan site devoted to all things Psychopathic. He brought four songs that he believes represents the very worst of the Psychopathic catalog. Faygo is a midwestern soda that has been popularized by Insane Clown Posse against the wishes of Faygo. It’s customary at ICP shows that members of the crew will shower the crowd in multiple flavors of Faygo. We’re pretty sure it’s not as good as Dr. Pepper.
