56 The First Thing to Go is Trains

Bullshit prognosticating. How to get the best front row seat for the apocalypse. The pre-Singularity. Robocop. Self-driving cars. Robot trolley car death in the future. Talking shit about capitalism, and other things that will eventually get Joey deported. Minimum wage, Mad Max style. Fast food free of judgment. Being technically correct is still the best kind of correct. Captain America. A short apology to Ryan’s sister. Becoming the intellectual Highlander.

In this episode, the boys make predictions about the future in order to promote an episode of Pub Chat.
