Then, “Cuffing Season” is upon us, and Christian's the only Wannabe who's ready. "Shoplifting Season" is also in full swing, but Christian is ALWAYS prepared for that. Jesus tells a story of getting caught stealing.

Finally, an explosive argument somehow erupts over gum flavors, and Jerry is happy that Christian is back to weigh in on Disney+ and teach an extended class in Star Wars For Dummies.

Jerry is an athletic authority, Jesus popped his Vegas cherry, and the Wannabes figure out what type of girl is most likely to give you herpes.

The Wannabes tackle the hot topic of whether student-athletes should be paid. Jerry weighs in as the only athlete in the group. Jerry and Fernie just started coaching together, and they’ve already given up on their team.

Fernie took Jesus to Vegas and showed him how it’s done. Jesus used all the towels. The guys disagree about Vegas baddies – are girls in Sin City out to get the D or not?

Then, Jerry and Jesus kick off another great debate of our day: Are hot girls or ugly chicks more likely to have herpes? Christian bows out of the conversation. But maybe YOU should weigh in with either a DM or a review on Apple Podcasts!

Sep 30, 2019

Jerry went broke working in Reno, Jesus critiques modern gangsters, Christian explains sleepovers, and a heated debate erupts about movie remakes with all-women casts.

Getting paid upfront was NOT a good idea for Jerry's week in Reno. He gambled his entire paycheck back to the casino. The guys break down Vegas for Jesus, who is SHOCKED by the amount of money they say you need.

All the Wannabes remember getting kicked out of their school bands. They get serious for a second and talk about being bullied.

Jerry and Jesus were never allowed to have sleepovers, so Christian reveals what happens and why they're great.

Then: Ghostbusters, Ocean's 8, and now, maybe, a female James Bond? The guys share their unfiltered thoughts about gender-swapped remakes, and an argument ensues.

Finally, the most heartfelt shout-out to the #1 podcast listener of all time: RIP Rickster. You will be missed. This one's for you.

Sep 23, 2019

The guys remember high school club life with their pimped-out rides and paisa mustaches! Plus, a review of the Popeye's chicken sandwich, and Jesus balls out.

Jerry's high school Zephyr was a chick magnet. This leads to talk of neon lights, spinning rims, thumping stereos, and all the ways dumbass high schoolers tried to make their shitty cars look dope.

Christian is a Groupon ho, and he wants everyone to be on the McDonald's app.

Jesus reveals he is a chicken professional, and the Wannabes go deep on Popeye's vs. Chick-fil-A vs. El Pollo Loco vs. KFC vs. Church's. The only discussion you'll ever need on the topic.

Then, Jerry again says what we're all thinking: Should you want your daughter to be super ugly or super hot? Christian struggles as a dad with jealousy he hasn't felt since high school.

And finally, Jesus threatens to piss in Jerry's face over pickup basketball, while Jerry demands Jesus own up to blowing a voiceover audition. Also, RIP Kevin Hart.

Aug 21, 2019

The guys recap Jesus and Fernie's excellent adventure at a lit concert, while Jerry remembers some disturbing backstage action at a concert of his own.

Fernie’s birthday festivities lead to talk of dudes experimenting with dudes. At the Cardi B concert, he and Jesus witnessed a medical emergency, a group of girls feeling each other up, a dangerous mosh pit, and Fernie got twerked on while Jesus got physical with a big drunk girl.

The guys remember all their favorite white rap-rockers of the 90s!

Jerry got the VIP treatment at Dodgers stadium, and considers moving his bobblehead collection into the world of Funko Pops.

Then, Jesus sings the praises of Little Women: Atlanta and lays down the law with some scheming insurance people after an accident in downtown LA.

Marcos recalls his first fateful meeting with Jesus and Jerry.

Finally, Jesus and Jerry talk about how wild life gets on the road, coming down after last week's run of shows out of town.

Jul 15, 2019

In our sexiest episode yet, the guys debate genital size, ladies cheating, being strung along, and our steamiest PREGUNTA ever. Light the candles and snuggle up.

Fernie kicks things off with an explicit micropenis video. Aaawww yeah. The Wannabes consider the opposite problem: Wide vaginas. Mmmhmmm.

Jerry plays a podcast clip with controversial hot takes on modern cheating, and Christian is shook. FACT: Women cheat more than men. Get down, gurrrrl.

Jerry is hung up on "the one that got away," and the lovely Krystle Zaragoza chimes in with advice on whether or not Jerry is being played. Dayyyyum.

Finally, everybody's got opinions on how long to date with no sex, before a brand new PREGUNTAS SEGMENT showcases a steamy story of forbidden love straight out of Jerry's favorite porno. Bow-chicka-bow-wow.

The guys talk going viral with All Def veteran (and Jesus' editing crush) Cris Sosa, who also tells the story of his ex-stepmom's failed plot to kill his dad.

Cris (@cristinososa on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook) has been blowing up online, so the Wannabes go deep on their philosophies for the influencer economy. What's the best way to shoot your shot with the baddies - DMs, comments, stories, or let 'em come to you?

Then, Jesus introduces the Jerry G IT'S NOT MY WEEKEND Drinking Game, and Jerry reflects on how little TV means in today’s entertainment world. That reminds Christian of the time Jesus bootlegged his own CD. And Cris tells the story of how he BDE'd himself right into a job with Kevin Hart.

Finally, the epic story of how Cris' dad faked his own death to entrap his murderous wife. You must must must listen.

Jun 6, 2019

Jesus gets in the middle of another basket-brawl, Jerry G brings his talents to elementary school, and the guys debate the merits of dating each others' exes.

Jesus is wearing a cowboy hat, and it might be the biggest controversy ever on the show. Jerry has discovered the horrifying world of children’s YouTube. “Baby Shark” is cool though.

Jerry booked a 100% clean comedy set, and Jesus tears it apart.

The guys remember a childhood friend who starred in the Shaq movie KAZAAM!, then had to go back to living a normal life. They remember if they wanted to be famous Netflix stars growing up.

This leads Jesus to talk about ego, which leads Jerry to...reveal his credit score? Spoiler alert: It’s not great!

The guys go deep on pegging (pun intended) and reveal who likes what kind of butt stuff. Plus, Game of Thrones reaches a less than satisfying conclusion.

The SPORTS MINUTE starts early with Jerry's thoughts on the NBA Draft! Meanwhile, Christian couldn’t get into the Canelo fight.

The James Charles scandal leads to talk of which celebrities love pegging. We revisit Jerry’s infatuation with the gays, Jesus offers sensual descriptions of anal play, and Christian talks about the man who got arrested for loving to eat ass.

Jesus remembers getting caught by his hook-up's gay paisa brother. Jerry broke the internet on Mother's Day, and he's got more thoughts to vent.

The guys go live at NoHo Comedy Fest with demoted intern Raul Reyes, NorCal comic Carlos Rodriguez, Chilean superstar Fabrizio Copano, and more surprise guests.

Carlos helps the Wannabes sort out the NorCal vs. SoCal beef, then reveals a bizarrely intimate relationship with Jerry.

Jesus needs strip club recommendations in Phoenix. The guys are visited by their first black guest (and like the tenth black guy in New Mexico). And Christian recalls his bad decisions on the last live show.

Fabrizio runs through "a small book"'s worth of content, including snorting coke with rock stars, outing Antonio Banderas as NOT LATINO, and cutting the sexual tension with a knife when he reveals he looks exactly like Lady Gaga in drag.

All that, plus A LIVE PREGUNTAS SEGMENT!
