TSOM06: Steamy Pile of Wu with Unkut.com’s Robbie


For this episode, the The Violent Ambassador, the Foolish Professional, the Thunderous Beggar, and the Erratic Assassin are joined by Unkut.com’s Robbie Ettelson who has brought with him four selections he picked from the Wu Tang catalog (including extended affiliates) that he believes represent the very worst from the Wu in our Steamy Pile of Wu Show. It’s really steamy and truly stinky.



Show notes:

Voices: J. Wyrick, S. Bennett, C. Allred, B. Collier and special guest Robbie Ettelson.

Intro music contains elements of M.Barnacle’s “Erase That” (used with permission), contains elements from ODB, the Fat Boys, Kid Koala, Johnny Adams, Biggie Smalls coughing up something nasty, Larry and Tommy. Arranged by TSOM’s Jeff.
