Episode 12 – Daniel O’Brien (Annotated)
Hi, I’m Craig The Intern, and they make me transcribe these every week. Everything’s going great so far!
The Guest: Daniel O’Brien
The guys are huge fans of one Daniel O’Brien and he’s the guest on the podcast this week! So, of course, Daniel O’Brien (from Cracked.com, BunnyEars.com, not the famous Olympian) stops by and lets everyone know how he’s doin’, what he’s working on, and his love of Steven Seagal.
Dan grew up in New Jersey being mistaken for Macaulay Culkin (from Final Destination, Little Giants, and Dennis The Menace). Matt goes nuts talking about Ascension Millennium. They go on to more very, very in-depth Corey Feldman references from there.
They then talk about Dan’s book! Cracked.com used to be his home and we get the origin of his book How to Fight Presidents: Defending Yourself Against the Badasses Who Ran This Country.
At some point Daniel O’Brien uses the phrase “chaotically horny” very casually!
VERSUS: Favorite President In Terms Of Fascination
Everything you need to know about James K. Polk. And then we take a trip down memory lane where we somehow end up at Hitler. Again.
