FREE EPISODE! Now, we know what you're thinking: "Aren't all their episodes free?" Technically, yes. But you guys EARNED this episode by getting us to 1,083 new and recurring donors! Woo hoo! We promised in our last episode that if 1,000 people became new supporters of ONRAC in particular, we would release this live VeryVeryFunDay episode of us electrocuting John Hodgman with the Thync device, a transdermal electrical neurosignaling device that (supposedly) makes you either really, really PUMPED or really, really zonked, depending on what settings you apply. Two of us found it very unpleasant and often painful. Predict which two in the comments below (no spoilers)!
And if you haven't joined Maximum Fun yet, scroll up to that donate tab. There are all sorts of cool rewards for joining during the drive, and if we get to 1,500 new and upgrading ONRAC donors, we will record a commentary track for Star Wars, where Carrie watches it all the way through for the firs time EVER! MAKE THIS HAPPEN, FOLKS.

This week our guest and co-host is the hilarious Daniel Van Kirk!(Comedy Central Comics to Watch, Dumb People Town with the Sklar bros, Bob's Burgers) DVK is 100% positive he will be surviving the apocalypse so be sure to stick with this guy by following him on social media! This episode we hypothesize about the person we will become after the apocalypse has changed us, a guest submitted "would you rather" and we talk zombies as we delve into Dan's "exiters" theory meaning we dip a toe in the deep end, so be ready to get dark. (Trigger warning: exiters theory includes discussion of mass suicides.)
