We're back! Wait -- don't you remember us? The guys who spent ninety minutes talking about weird news stories for 39 episodes? Well, hopefully we can refresh your memory with a brand-new installment, just in time for the nadir of your holiday depression. Put down that string of hopelessly tangled Christmas lights and join Michael, Bob, and Bill as they sink their teeth into the topic of cults, if only for the sake of talking about something that won't become dated by the time we get around to posting this episode. Tune in for stories of Charlie Manson's honeys, the coordinated footwear and video yearbooks of Heaven's Gate, the flatware sex cult that spawned a Presidential assassin, and oh so much more. It'll make you sit up and say, "Hey, I remember those guys!" And really, that's all we can ask for. Happy Holidays to you and yours from the Down to Hang Out Compound in Undisclosed Location, Montana.

All things come to an end. Bob, Michael and Billiam overcome their mutual loathing for the show and for each other to rally for one last episode. We might be back in some different form later on, but this is it for now. Thanks for listening and as we part ways for a while, please remember the words of Kurt Vonnegut: "As our lives change. Come whatever. We will still be friends for ever. Ah la la la la. La la la la la. La la la la la. Friends forever."

Very few podcasts reach their thirty-seventh episode, so Down to Hang Out is proud to present this latest installment in our ongoing saga of finding an hour where we can sit down and endlessly fiddle with Skype. And since our recording didn't fall conveniently near any holidays, our only overarching theme for this week is madness. Turn up the volume, put the car on cruise control, and lay back as your favorite dudes discuss more gun heroes parading around like G.I. Joe in the housewares section of notable department stores, the tragic tale of Sugar Ray taking the '90s and making it into a boat, and Siberia's newest ploy to reach tourists who aren't there to break rocks on the tundra. It's more exciting than finding an M&M with two peanuts inside of it!

Stories discussed in this episode:

It's our third consecutive year of Hanging Out, and this time, we brought our "A" game. 2013 promises to bring its share of disasters, misfortunes, and guns being drawn in fast food restaurants, but your pals at DTHO will be here for the next 12 months to reassure you with our soothing jokes and delightful banter. Join us for this new year of hope and optimism as we discuss insurance companies continuing to be the worst things since weaponized viruses, the best way to hogtie disruptive airplane passengers, and one man's violent outrage about Subway's lack of ketchup. Remember, it'll take at least five seconds of your life to unsubscribe from our podcast, so you might as well hold out until 2014.

The world failed to end in 2012, meaning we're going to have to keep pushing on until the promise of another doomsday. Day in. Day out. Slogging through this miserable existence and surrounded by miserable people.

No, friends, the Mayan doomsday won't save us from people like an Alabaman college football player who lost his spot on the team as a 20th-string walk-on for getting pissy about Obama's Newtown memorial and dropping n-bombs on Twitter.

In retrospect 2012 was a little disappointing. We give it a C+. It was lackluster overall, save for the times the monotony would be broken by someone getting assaulted on a subway by a man with a poop sock. But, to be honest, even those gags seemed a little tired and forced.

The 50s saw the birth of rock n' roll. The 60s were a time of questioning authority. Twenty-twelve was the year morons with guns would try shooting people in places like Little Caesar's. This is what we have to look forward to. This is life now.

At least we'll always have Dear Leader.

We're moving from the schadenfreude of Election Day, from the gluttony of Thanksgiving to the unrestrained conspicuous consumption of the holiday season. If you're on the hunt for gifts to disappoint your friends and loved ones, we've got your back. We've found the dumpiest Christmas presents the Internet has to offer. Be sure to namedrop us as your friends and family cry over their thoroughly depressing Christmas morning. 

And while this ep is Christmas-themed, we by no means intend it to be exclusionary. Make us part of whatever holiday celebration you loathe this year. Disappointment, my friends, is not exclusive to any race or creed.

So cuddle up next to a cozy fire, choke down some eggnog, grit your teeth to the sound of Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra getting rip-snorting drunk and kiss your ass goodbye because you're spending the holidays with Michael, Bob and Billiam.

When archeologists from the future pick through the decaying ruins of what used to be America, they'll come across this episode.

Recorded just days after the national election history will come to refer to as The Great Culling, our long-dead voices will be heard by these future scientists as we tell stories about how butthurt conservatives bravely posted a bunch of racist bullshit on Twitter, how those same people built effigys calling for public figures to be murdered and how Papa John - who the scientists can only assume must be some great sky spirit of job creation - killed a bunch of people without health insurance because he didn't want to charge an extra dime for pizzas.

For everyone in present times, we'd like to remind you we only have limited space in the Down to Hang Out fallout shelter and only those people who tell their friends about us will be considered for admittance.

Stories discussed in this episode:

The South collectively drops a bunch of n-bombs over Twitter

Pray For Mojo Assassin

Like the pennies, Mary Janes, circus peanuts, and Bit-O-Honeys in your trick-or-treat bag, Down to Hang Out is here to provide Halloween disappointment and excessive tooth damage. Join us on this special spooky episode as we discuss Japan's new pumpkin burger, (which opens a small window into Bill's loathing of this festive fruit) the blood secret that Dracula knew all along, the horrors of paying five figures for a rancid tub of Michael Jordan-branded BBQ sauce, and how robot cops will be able to violate our civil liberties much more efficiently than the ones made of racism and fleshy donut girth. Kids: make sure your parents inspect this podcast before you listen, because it's absolutely FULL of razor blades.

Join us in this special episode in which we discuss Lynryrd Skynyrd tyrning over a nyew leaf (lyrf?), Chris Brown continuing to be a filthy jerk who should be shot full of harpoons and Rush Limbaugh's deep-seated fears about women stealing his penis.
