Jeff Sessions Finally Freed From The Trump Administration After Accidentally Being Given A Sock.

Jeff Sessions clings to his socks moments after being set free


Washington D.C.  – Jeff Sessions has finally been freed from the Trump Administration after accidentally being given a sock. For the last two years, diligent house-elf Jefferson Beauregard Sessions served the Trump house with great loyalty. Despite harsh criticism from Master Trump, and surviving many vicious Twitter lashings, Jefferson stood by his angry master. Trump often demand that Jefferson punish himself any time he did something disagreeable to him. "Jefferson is used to death threats, sir. Jefferson gets them five times a day at home." stated Sessions. The threats came to an end today though when Trump accidentally gave Sessions a sock attached to his termination papers. With tears in his eye, Jefferson exclaimed, "Master has presented Jefferson with clothes! Jefferson is free!"

LISTEN TO THE EPISODE ON ITUNES HERE

[NSFW WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT]

On today's episode, Austin and I go through the last month and talk about all of our experiences filming our "31 Days of Horror".


We've had such a great time filming at all of these haunted locations and telling their history and their stories. We of course are skeptical on these kind of stories, but we love telling them. While filming, we definitely had some weird experiences that we talked about on the episode. 

We also talked about my weekend at LA Comic Con and Austin's weekend back in Salt Lake for some Halloween Festivities. Austin also talks about taking a bit of a hiatus from the podcast while he takes care of his art and acting. 

Thank you for your continual support and commenting and telling us your stories throughout the "31 Days of Horror". If you've missed any of them, they're available on the Instagram @onthemicpodcast.

Episode 144 - Halloween Songs

LISTEN TO THE EPISODE ON ITUNES HERE

[NSFW WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT]

Today's episode is the 4th in our series of special Halloween Episode!


We decided to cover a topic that we realized there wasn't very many of... Halloween Songs. We usually just hear "The Monster Mash" on repeat over and over again, but we found a few of the other songs we enjoy that are also part of Halloween.

The Treehouse of Horror clip we played on the episode. 

We talked about what makes a good Halloween Song, Treehouse of Horror, some creepy stories behind some of the songs, new songs that we hadn't heard yet, "Nightmare Before Christmas" cover songs, and possibly one of the most terrfying songs we've heard yet. 

We hope you have been enjoying our special Halloween episodes as well as our "31 Days of Horror" on our Instagram. Stay tuned for our second episode this week coming to you LIVE from LA Comic Con! 

Enjoy the episode!
