Would you rather be a dictator or an elected president?
Posted 14 April 2015 / By Caleb J. Ross / Important Question? Podcast/ Video

Ep-Banner-10-DictatorOrPresident

As the old joke goes: What’s the difference between Hitler and jock strap? One’s a dictator, the other a dick-toter. Absolute power may corrupt absolutely, but can you get anything done in a democracy? And so we ask, would you rather be a dictator or an elected president?

We’re also trying something new this time. We recorded the podcast in Gordon’s studio. Watch all the visual glory below. And let us know what you think of the format. We may do more in the future.

What about you? Would you rather be a dictator or an elected president? Let us know on Twitter.

Gun, Needle, Spoon. An overview of Patrick O’Neil’s drug memoir [video]
Posted 9 April 2015 / By Caleb J. Ross / Video

This is a bit of a different format for my review videos. As I explain in the video, I’m trying to streamline the process of uploading videos while at the same time making the reading process itself more enjoyable. Let me know what you think.

So, what is Gun, Needle, Spoon? It’s basically a drug memoir written in a vignette style. The lack of narrative “glue” doesn’t detract from the impact nor from the sheer craziness of the events in O’Neil’s life. If you like drug memoirs, definitely pick this one up.

Disclosure: Dzanc (the book’s publisher) sent a copy of the book to me. The free copy did not influence my opinion of the book.

Would you abandon Earth to live on Mars?
Posted 31 March 2015 / By Caleb J. Ross / Important Question? Podcast

Ep-Banner-09-LiveOnMars

With the announcement of the Mars One program, over 200,000 earthlings applied to depart this shithole planet and endure eight years of training before a seven-month, one-way, unshowered flight to colonize an unspoiled one. Four will be selected every two years. And so we ask, would you leave this life behind and everyone in it to realize your astronaut fantasy?

On this episode of Important Question? we ponder the possibility of moving to Mars.

Would you take candy from a baby?
Posted 17 March 2015 / By Caleb J. Ross / Important Question? Podcast

Ep-Banner-08-CandyFromaBaby

The greatest thing about childhood is of course the lack of shame when gobbling down copious amounts of candy. We even have Halloween, a day dedicated to begging strangers for the sweet vibrantly colored starter-heroine. And even better is being a baby with candy. Because we all know that taking candy from a baby is easy and wrong. Or is it?

On this episode of Important Question? we ponder to what degree would our taffy-like ethics have to be stretched before we take candy from a baby.

What about you? Is a crying baby or an angry parent worth a lollipop? If so, what flavor of lollipop?

Would you endure castration to live 20 years longer?
Posted 3 March 2015 / By Caleb J. Ross / Important Question? Podcast

Ep-Banner-07-Castration-1300

Hike your socks and grab your cocks, time for another IQ, the podcast that killed the radio star. Studies suggest that castrated men may live 15-20 years longer than their ballsy brethren. So today we get snippy and ask Would you endure castration to live 20 years longer? Now, these aren’t 20 bonus prime years, nor 20 enfeebled ones, but regular aging spread out over a longer time.

What about you? What about you? Is another 20 years worth your plums or eggs? Let us know on Twitter. Caleb J. Ross can be found @calebjross and Gordon Highland can be found @gordonhighland.
