Bonus Episode: Brad’s Not Here!
This is a bonus episode of the world famous Sofa King Podcast. But, it is a “bonus episode: light.” Why? Because Brad’s not here! He’s smack dab in the middle of being an awesome father, so the intrepid Dave and Brent take to the microphones by themselves. In this episode, they answer the interview questions of Marcel Proust, French Novelist, and man with a mustache that was as fancy as it gets. These questions are apparently quite powerful since the guys only answered three questions, and it turned into a full blown episode. What questions did they answer? Why does one of the guys prefer Superman while the other prefers Spider Man? What does a cleft palate and being abnormally tall have to do with each other? Where does Lebowski fit in?

Patreon Episode: Misunderstood
What happens, when the Sofa King Podcast sets a microphone up in front of two innocent little girls to talk about their parents and their friends? Well, for one thing, it turns in to a Patreon shout out. For another thing, a lot of sex talk that isn’t sex talk happens. For another another thing, hilarity ensues. For another another another thing, they aren’t really little girls. For another another another another thing, it isn’t safe for work what with all the dirty talk that isn’t dirty. Confused? You don’t have to be? You could just download and give it a listen. We hope this little skit conveys the genuine thanks and love we have for our Patrons. You keep us in ramen and El Yucateco hot sauce, and we appreciate every single dollar you give us.

Episode 422: Fresno Nightcrawlers: Alien Break Dance Battle?
On this episode of the world famous Sofa King Podcast, we delve into the paranormal and look at a creature that some say is an alien and other say is a cryptid—the Fresno Nightcrawler. Now, Fresno is only about an hour and a half from the Fight Club Studios, so we were instantly interested in a creature that hails from our backyard. In this case, the creature is a strange one, or a strange two since they seem to travel as a couple. Unlike most cryptids, there is video footage of them (see the notes below). They look like a pair of lanky, strange legs with knees that don’t bend quite right. Oh, and it has no real torso or head, just a bit of a lump above the flowing, blowsy legs. The first encounter with them that was filmed was on a security camera in the backyard of a man named Jose (he keeps his last name out of it to avoid all the nonsense). In November of 2007, he heard his dogs barking in an odd, threatened way at 12:45 AM. He went to check the video camera in case it was another break in, and he saw the Fresno Nighcrawlers. They shambled and flowed across his front yard and through is wrought iron gate, on and then another. The next day, he called the police, and they obviously had no jurisdiction on alien pants creatures. They suggested the media, and he called the local Univision station. They filmed a video of his video and sent it to MUFON for investigation. MUFON sent a man named Camacho out to investigate, and after several months, he finally interviewee Jose and took the footage to a MUFON conference. That was when the video went viral. After that, another video appeared, allegedly shot north of Fresno in Yosemite. But even before all this, there was an encounter of something called the Caramel Creature, a strange being with a similar description in Indiana, an alleged ancient Yokuts Indian myth, and even a video from Poland. People try to debunk these videos. Hard. And some succeed more than others. What do the guys think of these videos? Why do they think one might be more legit than the others? How tall are these Fresno Nightcralwers, and how did they fit between an iron fence? Why was Jose so scared that he didn’t even leave his house for three weeks after the encounter? Where are the creepy wooden statues that are said to depict these creatures? Are they aliens, cryptids, beings from the spirit realm? Listen, laugh, learn.   Visit Our Sources: First Video of Nighcrawler: Second Video: Polish Video: MUFON Video with Jose: Break Down of Videos:
