It's the third anniversary of our first episode! We're amazed we're still here, and we've got all of you to thank for that. Drop us a line so we can thank you individually!

This week we're talking about addiction. We've mentioned before that Pitney has had some battles with alcoholism over the years, and Amelia was a problem pill popper. We're going to tell you about all of it. What it's like to be an addict. What it's like to be close to an addict. what it's like to lose an addict you love. All those lies that addicts tell themselves and their friends. Things addicts insist are true, but they're full of crap. We pull no punches, and you might hear some things discussed that you never expected. But, as always, we laugh a lot.

(And for your Year of the Vagina pleasure, the effects of opioid abuse on cooch function!)

And if you're an addict, or you think you might be, there's no shame in asking for help. If you're not sure who to talk to, there's always us. We mean it.

Who the heck are Pitney and Amelia? A gay guy and his fat friend talking about everything! We've got over 30 years of stories to share about stuff we love, stuff that annoys us, people we've known, places we've been, and things we've seen. Geeky, silly, and always opinionated. NAMES ARE CHANGED TO PROTECT THE GUILTY!

We may be awful, but we're right!

New episodes every other Friday. Recorded close enough to Austin, Texas to help with their weirdness factor.
