When I saw this episode come up in my feed, initially I was "Ugh...Steve-O", but I decided to give it a chance.
At first, I sort of liked it...hearing someone who's not directly involved in the Earwolfiverse on an Earwolf show can be refreshing sometimes, other times it's Chris Gore. Steve-O's not a comedian, really, but I thought he had something to say.
I started to see the cracks forming when he was talking about being vegan while simultaneously doing stuff to animals that even non-vegans might have a problem with. I don't really have a particularly strong stance on either side, but I do have a strong stance on hypocrites.
When he started talking about how he's "not a conspiracy theory guy" then went on to describe a conspiracy theory filled with very vague statements, I was done.
Sorry, guys, I know sometimes guests can't be controlled, and that lack of control can even make for some amazing comedy, but sometimes they need to be put in their place and told that they're on a comedy podcast, not a therapy/conspiracy theory podcast.
I listen to Who Charted to laugh, not to hear a guy who shoots bottle rockets out of his ass on a professional level telling me how he can't maintain his morals in the face of making money and that the government is lying to me.
