Episode #87 – The Strange with Bruce Cordell

The Strange with Bruce Cordell

The Strange

Hello Folks. Chris here and we’ve got a good one for you today. The Prophet of Carter Morrison is here to tell you all about The Strange. Who’s the prophet you ask? Why it’s Bruce Cordell and think the interview is quiet good. We also have the return of the Marks favorite ass chapper as Tony returns for the second You Know What Really Chaps My Ass segment. Mark is also absent as he chases down the Evil Hat of Fred Hicks. Man is that Hat Evil. Enjoy.
