The End of the End

This is it. The end of our story, and possibly the end of the Multiverse! Join us as we say our last goodbyes to the Harbingers of Calamity & Friends. We had some laffs, shed some tears, but now it’s time to go face to face against evil incarnate. Who lives, and who dies? Find out on the series finale of A Beginner’s Guide to Interplanetary Destruction!

If you’re a fan of the show, we can’t thank you enough, and we hope you’ll stay tuned for what comes next!

Scrotally Boobular

Man, after an unknown amount of time fighting bad guys and fleeing in terror, you just need to relax, right? Come to Beachbabicon 5! Visit our many beaches, enjoy our many burrito stands, do your best to not get murdered! Yes, Beachbabicon 5 has it all – ladies in very little clothing, well-oiled dudes wrastlin’ in the sand, and definitely not murder!

Episode 2.10, “Scrotally Boobular” was written, voiced, and recorded in a totally chill and relaxed setting by perpetually chill-ass ladies and dudes. It was an entirely chilled-to-the-max process that cannot be replicated due to everyone involved having been murdered upon completion of said chill recording session.

Romancing the Bone
