Red State Update

Mar 5, 2017

We'll be back soon! Until then, please enjoy the saga of Snake Bells.

These come from Episodes 175-178, back in March and April 2016, when nobody had ever heard of Donald Trump.  Hope y'all like 'em again, or maybe even for the first time.


From our Wikipedia (thanks, Guy Lancaster!): 

  • Snake Bells. Snake Bells offers a total yard security system consisting of sirens and alarms that warn of, and scare off, approaching snakes. The system was developed by Esob Durling and his wife, Pammy Parts. Esob once worked down in Huntsville, Alabama on the "Star Wars" system, in addition to voicing the character of Cap'n Crunch on one of the earliest 1-800 numbers. In Episode 176, Dunlap announced, to Jackie's surprise, that while the podcast was being recorded, the Snake Bells crew was over at Jackie's house installing a system. By the next week, Jackie had experienced severe sleep deprivation and was threatening to report the Snake Bells company for elder abuse if they did not immediately dismantle the system at his house. However, after the crew returned to take down the Snake Bells system, Jackie began finding all kinds of poisonous snakes in his yard and accused the company of planting them there.

Podcasting from Dunlap's grandmother's basement in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Jackie Broyles and Dunlap yell about President Ultimate Yankee Donald Trump and baby tantrums and his alt-right Nazi cabinet henchmen, Steve Bannon and Elizabeth Warren, Priebus and Putin, liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans, Never-Trumps and Bernie bros, Deplorables and RINOs, fake news, fake sponsors, national politics, pop culture and current events, Trump's America and, let's be honest, the end of the world. If you like sophisticated satire, nuanced political humor, and redneck shitkicking hillbilly country comedy Hee-Haw moonshine outhouse Blue Collar donkey cartoon face, this is the podcast for you. I mean "y'all."
