Syndication

Even though The Remake has ridden off into the sunset, former co-host Josiah has gotten back up on that podcast horse. 

Please check out Josiah's new podcast, The $8 Game Show! Every week has different rounds and games. In this debut episode, cartoon writer Chris Carter plays the name game, makes his Laffy Taffy, and tries his hand at some foley work. ​But will he put it all on the line to answer The Pretty Hard Question? 

Theme music by Eric Braband!
