What It Is
A dude discusses issues relating to being a Christian man.
Pretty terrible sound quality. Not the worst I’ve heard, but pretty bad. Episodes go anywhere from fifteen minutes to an hour. The iTunes archive contains the 22 episode series which ran from 2010 to 2013. For more content, check out the unbelievably hideous website.
What About It
You guys. This is kind of the worst podcast in history. Caruthers is about the worst possible podcast host. He’s unbelievably lethargic and speaks in a mumbly monotone. He talks about how he struggles to be a hero man. He discusses his “porn addiction.” He has an unbelievably awkward interview with his pre-teen son, mostly made up of asking his son if he knows “what porn is” and the requisite unbearably awkward pauses. This podcast is part of something called the “P B and J Network.” The network has two other shows. One of them is called The P B and J Show. The other is a show called Bacon Cowboys. Bacon Cowboys. I think it’s about Minecraft. You see the ****** artwork above. The host loves to refer to the podcast with what he seems to think is the incredibly catchy acronym ‘ASG4CM’ which is possibly the worst acronym in history. I mean, the title is what it is, but not everything needs to be an acronym. If you’re going to have an acronym, it should be because the acronym makes some kind of sense. If your “acronym” could basically pass for a license plate, it’s not a ******* acronym. He gave his own show a five star iTunes review where he states: “I love producing this show. I am the host of this show and God has given me a heart to reach men and help them get their hearts back.” Okay, the iTunes review process is not for the ******* HOSTS OF THE SHOWS TO TELL PEOPLE ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE OF CREATING THE SHOW. You’re basically telling me that I would like PRODUCING the show instead of letting people tell me about listening to the show. Sir. I DO NOT NEED TO KNOW WHETHER OR NOT I WOULD LIKE PRODUCING THE SHOW YOU ARE ALREADY PRODUCING. And, by the way, I’M A CHRISTIAN. I can only imagine that this show would play about ten times worse to someone who isn’t of the same religion. Though, you know, listen to his show about when A&E fired Phil Robertson from Duck Dynasty. He has some thoughts about that. [sarcasm]You should definitely listen to that.[/heavy sarcasm] I don’t give this a 0 star rating though. It gets a half-star for being so terrible that I actually got something out of it. I had fun viciously mocking it just now. And if you’re into “cringe” material, you’ve found a gold mine. Half-star!
You get off on hearing middle-aged men mumble awkwardly about porn.
Avoid Like the Plague If
You have hope for humanity.
Best Entry Point
You know, I can’t find the episode with his son, which is definitely the most embarrassingly awkward. Maybe he took it down. I mean, I was going to link you to it so you could laugh derisively, so I think that means he probably should take it down if he hasn’t. I mean, that poor kid. He’s gonna have some “father wounds.” Yes, I said “father wounds.” If your morbid curiosity gets the better of you, then just try one. Honestly, My Story, the first proper episode (except for an “Intro” episode), is probably the one to start with.
