Adam runs us through what the hell Jojo is and we explore in detail the first few stories so if you're somebody who worries about spoilers maybe hold out until you've watched the first 3 seasons of the book or manga. But our retelling can't possibly undermine just how weird and wonderful Jojo is. So grab a mesh t-shirt, get your stand ready, and strap in for...

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome their dear old friend, photographer Billy Small. Billy has worked with Kyle and Matt many times in the past and ALWAYS makes them laugh. After years of doing the podcast they were both very excited to have him on. What follows is some podcast silliness.
