Breaking news: The Anti-Social Review has released episode 4 of Radio Playtime! When first reports came in of this shocking development Ban Ki-moon was quoted as saying "I am Secretary General of the United Nations." When asked about the free price-tag of this remarkable podcast and whether it would be worth subsidising it for the good of all humanity, US President Barack Obama said "There will be no more taxpayer-funded bailouts - period," though it is possible he was talking about Wall Street reform. In other news, areas of the Middle-East are turbulent, China and India are heavily populated, 19th Century Belgians should have left the Congo alone and Russell Brand has a very stupid haircut.
The third episode of Radio Playtime attempts to solve the complex mystery that is Karl Kuepper. In this quest we are treated to an insight into the mind and life of this fascinating individual, and perhaps we will learn something about ourselves in the process. All of the fawning, adoring fan mail that will no doubt flood Karl's inbox after this episode goes to air can be sent to the usual address listed in the "Contact us!" section of the site (he won't give out his personal address, naturally, as celebrity stalkers are all too real a problem, the gravity of which the common people simply do not appreciate). Please remember that Karl may not have time to personally respond to all your fan mail, as if he did so he simply wouldn't have time to make the show. The other guy should be able to get to it, however... what's his name? Matt? Mike? Mark, or something?
This special presentation of the Anti-Social Encyclopaedia concerns the Cold War, a conflict fought between penguins and polar bears in 1802. Ironically, since polar bears and penguins each come from opposite poles of the Earth, the war was fought out in the sweltering heat of the Sahara Desert. No, wait. Actually this podcast is about the real Cold War. Sort of. What’s more, all of the facts listed in the podcast are historically accurate – if you don’t believe me then prove me wrong. You’ll have to listen to it either way and that pushes up our number of hits, so I figure it’s a win-win situation for us.
On this historic day - the very first time that the Anti-Social Review has published a second episode - the occasion is marred by the obscene language and content in this so-called "comedy show". What is the world coming to when such filth is allowed to defile the INTERNET of all places? There should be a law against this kind of thing, and if there already is a law, then there should be a second one. Back in my day we would stone people to death in the village square if they spoke this kind of obscene language - though admittedly many of the words had not been invented then. We also stoned people for growing to different types of crops in the same field, of course, or if they were weird. Why can't we return to those simpler values and brutally murder people who say things that we don't like or don't understand?
This is the pilot episode of the first season of Anti-Social Radio: the greatest podcast since FDR’s historic “fireside iPod chats” during the Great Depression. In this episode of Radio Playtime the Anti-Social Radio team (Karl D. Kuepper and Matthew Thompson) explore the themes of morality, sexuality, politics, class and Tetris in a unique manner that can only be described as “audible”.
P.S. Future episodes will be considerably longer than this one, even if we have to fill air at the end to pad them out!
P.P.S. You can now also watch the special video (sort of) version on Youtube!
Or you can still listen to the audio-only version below.
