EPISODE 238: ALL DEBTS, PUBLIC AND PRIVATE

We’re back in the Hutch this week and everything is going wrong! In Episode 238 we’re doing our very best to: control the weather, track down missing cows, watch people talk to each other about cars, acknowledge other people in the community, get a radio station to play our song, rob a bank with a fake beard, bribe businesses into going cashless, figure out how wack Mexican food must be in Europe, shoot ourselves in the dick on accident, contemplate having a hand off while driving, look at crime in our community, get an education on the dos and don’ts of using the word “Gypsy”, snort chocolate because that’s a thing now, leave our pistol in a park somewhere, and cope with a little bad news about Wilberforce.
