To start off 2016, we decided to reward you, our listener, with a pick. A Walla Walla, WA pick asked how come it’s taken so long for a “Rap Rock” episode. Naturally, we took this as a challenge. But because we were so damn busy searching for higher ground in Missouri or shoveling snow in West Texas, we consulted the talents of Californian Sean Duregger of Screamcast and AXPX (Armchair Philosopher) podcasts to guide us through his worst Rap Rock songs of all time. The sounds contained herein are the result of his search which, apparently, took him into some really dark places in his history. This episode brought to you by star tattoos and JNCO.
Voices: J. Wyrick, S. Bennett, C. Allred, the Dirty Deacon, and a most special guest Sean Duregger (who has a good radio voice)
