R Kelly and Michael Jackson are examples of celebrity titans that everyone has heard of. Some love their music, some love them enough to stalk them, and some love them so much they deny even the idea that either of these big time musicians have done any harm. But with R Kelly’s recent freakout on television and “Finding Neverland” showing the potential darker side to Michael Jacksons story some wonder if they really are monsters.

Alyssa doesn’t hold back as she showcases every bit of her opinion and perspective, no matter how extreme.

3 hosts, and two didn’t vote. Maxwell, Christian, and Alyssa all plead their case to why they did or didn’t vote in the most recent elections.

Things like “What’s the best profession to sleep with for free stuff?” or “What’s the craziest thing a stranger has ever said to you?” or “Why the hell would you pre-game before going to a science museum?” The answers are less obvious than you think, and when 3 millennial broadcasters get together they have no problems asking each other pretty much anything in this episode.

Maxwell, Christian, and Alyssa delve into the scripts that are famously written and posted on twitter written by a bot that was forced to watch 1000 hours of content.

Plus, Maxwell tries to do a bit that ended up in him almost forgetting his co hosts names much to his own embarrassment.
