Derek and Tim Eat Snacks Ep. 96: Cheetos Flavor Shots Flamin’ Hot Asteroids

This week on the DATESCAST, Tim is driving Derek nuts with his foley work, and both snackologists are driving their children nuts with their inability to be good school teachers. But they’re not about teaching children, that’s just what they do. They’re about respect for women and other phrases they stole from Mike and Tom. That includes the PER system, which they utilize to rate this week’s snack, Cheetos Flavor Shots Flamin’ Hot Asteroids.

Featuring: Derek Montilla (@cap_kaveman) & Tim Agne (@timagne)

Podcast Episode 409: Black Wednesday

After coming off the high that was WrestleMania, we are immediately reminded by the real world ramifications of COVID-19 and its impact on everything. Vince McMahon and the WWE had a controversial week to say the least. From bribing the state of Florida to allow them to have contracted employees perform an “essential” job to firing a small company’s worth of individuals in one day to even being reminded that Vince may have (did) help someone cover up a murder, we don’t even know where to start. But we do bring the nerd rage and hope it is as cathartic for you as it was for us. Cancel your WWE Network but subscribe to whatever we change formats to if this keeps up.

Featuring: ‘The Mayor of Reseda’ Derek (@cap_kaveman), ‘Uncle Beek’ Jeremey (@jaimsvanderbeek), Joshua Schlag (@thesteelcage / @schlizzag), NeoEcks (@theneoecks), ‘Super Jew’ Jared (@superjew75), and ‘The Villain’ Teek Hall (@teek_hall)
