Today we take a fun and sometimes concerning tour around the United States looking at laws that are still on the books that either definitely shouldn't be, shouldn't have ever been, are sadly necessary, or are just plain... odd. Did you know that in Indiana it's illegal to have a "a covered clearly erect penis" at a city park? Or that it's illegal …
 
This week, Cy loses his money by investing in some pretty questionable cryptocurrencies, and Chad gets more information regarding his long-lost father. -- Follow us on Instagram & Twitter!

Cult! Cult! Cult! We're back to sucking on a cult - a small and relatively unknown one which is surprising considering how crazy this story is. For well over a decade, conman Daniel Perez convinced a small band of followers into thinking he was possessed by three mostly evil angels, or maybe was an angel, and that he had the keys to heaven, or mayb…
 
This week, the incredibly funny Steve Gillespie (@ComicGillespie) joins Chad & Cy to share a couple of memories of working on the road with Cy and to tell us about the time he forced an emergency landing of a plane in Denver! -- Follow us on Instagram & Twitter! Chad Daniels (@ThatChadDaniels) is a Dad, Comedian, and pancake lover. With over 750 mi…
 
Whiskey! Today’s suck is SOAKED in whiskey. Mostly, in Jameson - some Irish whiskey. John Jameson - the founder of Jameson - was originally a lawyer from Alloa in Scotland before he founded a distillery in Dublin in 1780. In 1805, he was joined by his son John Jameson II who took over the family business. For the next 41 years, John Jameson Jr. bui…

QAnon is the conspiracy cult involving so, so many things. It MOSTLY centers around belief in an elite, leftist, Satanic, child sex trafficking slash human sacrifice slash adrenochrome harvesting ring and the one man thought to be destined to expose and destroy this Deep State, evil, globalist cabal - former president Donald Trump. Seriously. That'…

“We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.” Anonymous - the hacking collective that for many put hacking on the map. Since 2007, Anonymous has hacked just about everyone: the CIA, NSA, the Federal Reserve, other governmental agency websites around the world, the KKK, the Church of Scientology as well. They've released millions …
 
This week, we dove into the vault and found an episode that was recorded in the distant time of... 2019! Before the pandemic, Chad & Cy sat down (in a studio!!) with their good friend Mike E. Winfield (@MikeEWinfield) to chat about a TV pilot he did with Cy, what it was like growing up in Baltimore, and life as a step-father to a grown man! -- Chad…
 
What a wild one we have today. I set out, fascinated by his two escapes from prison, to only explore cartel leader El Chapo. And then I got sucked into the history of the War on Drugs. And what a crazy history it is. Saying drugs are bad and that's why they're illegal is to vastly oversimplify US drug policy. Does the War on Drugs make any sense at…
 
This week, Chaddy Daddy took some time off so Cy called up his friend Dan St. Germain (@DanSt.Germain) to chat a little bit about his career as a wrestling commentator, his run-ins with DMX (RIP), and some good old-fashioned drug-fueled improvisation! -- Chad Daniels (@ThatChadDaniels) is a Dad, Comedian, and pancake lover. With over 750 million st…
 
Mao Zedong's name is associated with one of the heinous totalitarian regimes of the 20th century - if not one of the most heinous regimes in the history of the world. Due to famines brought about directly by his brutal policies and political "purges" he authorized, roughly 45 million Chinese citizens died. Possibly tens of millions more. Chairman M…

Robert Pickton was born in 1949 just outside of Vancouver, CA, in Port Coquitlam, on a pig farm. His parents were Helen and Leonard Pickton, two insanely filthy human beings who couldn’t have cared less about clean clothes or a house that wasn’t full of animal shit or even about bathing their children, Robert, his sister Linda, and his brother, Dav…
 
It's our 100th episode! To celebrate the occasion, we called up our good friend Dan Cummins (@DanCumminsComedy) to finally give the people what they've wanted since the very beginning... a Middle of Somewhere/Timesuck crossover! Thanks for listening :-) -- Chad Daniels (@ThatChadDaniels) is a Dad, Comedian, and pancake lover. With over 750 million …
 
We got a wild one today. Today's Suck is really three Sucks in one. There is the abduction of Steven Stayner, the backstory of a notorious pedophile, Kenneth Parnell, and the story of serial killer, Cary Stayner aka the Yosemite Killer. In late 1972, Steven was abducted on the way home from school, at the age of seven, and he wouldn't see his famil…

Today we take a huge deviation for the type of topic we typically cover here on Timesuck. The Space Lizards on Patreon vote on two topics a month through the app, and for today, they voted in my grandfather who passed away back on December 23rd. Probably the most influential person in my life. Today, I cover how the Hall family ended up in Idaho wh…

Founded in 1974 by a man named Joe Ricci, the Elan School was supposed to be someplace where you could send your troubled teen so they could be rehabilitated and put back on the right track. But in reality, it was a cruel and chaotic nightmare where students were constantly being pressured to confess to things they’d done “wrong,” called “guilts,” …
 
This week, our favorite AM talk show host, Moose, sits down with comedian Chad Daniels after he spent a week at ACME Comedy Company in Minneapolis, MN recording an album to chat about how the shows turned out, reads a love letter that may be responsible for his entire existence, and reveals a birthday present his father once got for himself. -- Cha…
 
Blackwater. Now known as Academi. Once known as Xe Services. A private military company. One of many PMCs very active in Iraq and Afghanistan in the first decade of this century. One of many employers of "security contractors" contracted by the Department of Defense, or State Department, or the CIA to work alongside - or sometimes in place of - act…
 
This week's episode is a little bit different. Instead of bringing on a professional comedian, Chad calls up one of his best friends in the entire world, Christian Everhard, to tell us about how the two of them met, some of the hijinks they've gotten into during the course of their friendship, as well as some stories from Christian's incredibly exc…
 
The Great Emu War! Such a weird and fun tale to tell. What an odd historical period. As World War I came to an end, Australia - whose economy was tanking, tried to figure out what to do with their returning veterans. They decided to give many of them parcels of land in Western Australia where they could grow wheat. And then the Great Depression hit…
 
This week, it finally happens. The wait is over, the bit is done. Mike Cronin has finally recorded a (usable) episode of the Middle of Somewhere podcast! Hear all about his creepy attempts to hold people's children, dancing on stage to Don't Stop Believin', and megadosing THC pills with Tom Segura in Miami! -- Chad Daniels (@ThatChadDaniels) is a D…
 
Dante's Inferno! One of the most influential literary works ever written. Put to parchment in the early 14th century, Dante's opening third of the Divine Comedy presented a clear vision of Christian Hell, wherein nine descending circles, Dante, guided by the ancient Roman poet, Virgil, witnesses various types of sinners receiving poetically fitting…
 
This week, we need all of you to send your best wishes to Mike Cronin, who right before sitting down to record ate two Cadbury Eggs at the same time and wound up in the hospital... fortunately, we were able to call in the absolutely hilarious Mary Santora (@MarySantoraComedy) to tell us about the time she tried to jump the stage at a John Mayer con…
 
This might be the first episode to get me death threats. The Turkish government does NOT like being accused of genocide, and neither do many of its citizens. But during WW1, genocide is exactly what the Young Turks orchestrated. Roughly 1.5 million Armenians were killed. And between 1900 - 1923, up to 4.3 million Armenian, Greek, Assyrian, and othe…
 
This week, Mike Cronin literally murdered for over 90-minutes only to find out that he never pressed "record" on his audio track... but thankfully we were able to call in the absolutely GRRREAT!

The Denver Airport was built by the New World Order. The Denver Airport contains the international headquarters of the Illuminati.

The Denver International Airport is built atop a massive underground city built to house the…
 
This week, we spent an hour and a half trying to get a single useable story out of Mike Cronin, but when that inevitably failed we called in the hilarious Ian Bagg (@IanBagg) to share some memorable moments he's had with Chad out on the road! **Hay Bales Content Warning: Do not Google the term "Water Bum" with "Diarrhea" becauses it's a huge bummer…
 
Possibly the most meticulous Serial Killer the world has ever known, Israel Keyes spent years planning murders all across North America. Burying what he dubbed “murder kits” in various locations across the United States, he would travel thousands of miles to uncover a kit, racking up lots of frequent flier and rental car miles - before picking a ra…
 
This week, we attempted to record another episode with Mike Cronin but once again were forced to scrap the entire thing because it was awful. Thankfully, the totally hilarious Bill Squire (@BillSquire) was able to step in and tell a few stories that are actually worth listening to! -- Chad Daniels (@ThatChadDaniels) is a Dad, Comedian, and pancake …
 
In the final days of World War II and in the next few years after the war was over, the U.S. government helped hundreds and hundreds of Nazi Scientists whose knowledge and expertise was deemed crucial to the development of advanced weapons - no matter HOW complicit they were in heinous Nazi activities - to relocate to the States and become integral…
 
This week, we get a couple of updates from Cy, and then Chad brings the very hilarious Andy Woodhull (@AndyWoodhull) to tell us about his cross-country COVID trip, what it's like dating during a pandemic, and a very interesting conversation he once had with Ice-T! -- Chad Daniels (@ThatChadDaniels) is a Dad, Comedian, and pancake lover. With over 7…
 
Shaka Zulu! I'm guessing you've heard the name. Also guessing you know very little about his story. Most don't seem too. Which is a shame because it's such a great story! Shaka took the small Zulu tribe from less than 2,000 members to around 250,000 in just a dozen years. He took them from being one of many militarily inconsequential bands of Afric…

Can you imagine fighting a war for a country that had removed you from the land your ancestors lived on for centuries - a country actively trying to erase your language and culture? That’s exactly what the Navajo Code Talkers did in WW2. The Navajo code talkers took part in every assault the U.S. Marines conducted in the Pacific from 1942 to 1945. …
 
This week, Chad is joined by the incredibly funny Josh Sneed (@JoshSneed) who shares a memory of his favorite "heckle" and tells us about the time he was a minor league umpire. -- Chad Daniels (@ThatChadDaniels) is a Dad, Comedian, and pancake lover.

Viktor Frankl and his logotherapy. This is the topic we examine this week to carry on the Timesuck tradition of ending the year on a little inspirational note. Frankl had everything taken from him - his parents, his wife, his career, his home, and more - all taken by the Nazis after they stormed into Vienna during WW2. Shortly before the Nazis arri…

Phillip Markoff. AKA, the Craigslist Killer. On the surface, Markoff seemed like a normal guy. A guy on the path to a lot of success. He was a six-foot-three, athletic-framed, blonde hair and blue-eyed, soon-to-be doctor. A studious kid in his second year of med school in Boston. He was ambitious. He finished his undergraduate degree in just three …
 
General Butt Naked aka Joshua Blahyi is a complicated figure. He is now a Liberian Christian missionary helping victims or Liberia's first civil war rebuild their lives. In the early 90s, he was one of Liberia's most brutal warlords. While literally naked, and often while wielding a machete, he led an army of coked-up, brainwashed child soldiers in…

The Dark Ages. We attempt to suck a MASSIVE topic today. A thousand year's worth of European history. And actually, since we compare life in the Dark Ages to life in the Roman Empire, we end up covering two thousand years. The period between the fall of Rome in the fifth century and the beginning of the Modern Age that began sometime in the 14th ce…

Robert Ben Rhoades, born in 1945, started driving big rigs across America’s interstates and major highways in the mid-1970s, and he seemed to most like an unassuming and harmless trucker for the next fifteen-ish years.
