Introducing The Fallout Lounge, the scripted comedy sketch show that's in and out of your brain in minutes, leaving it refreshed and sparkling clean. It's not a podcast–it's a podsnack™! Created by a guy who wrote hundreds of funny radio commercials and then got fired.

Happy Thanksgaming to all who celebrate! It's that time of year where many will be travelling to see family and we will all wish we could sneak away to relax and play games instead of talking to Uncle Chet about whatever the f*&% he's into on Facebook this year.

Speaking as someone who is a bit of a butterface (minus my hero's jawline) - I gotta say I am upset by how accurate this title is to the topic of the episode. That's right!
