I'mma let you finish, but first this week Kyle and Matthew gotta sit down with comedians Rivers Langley and Jason Webb to talk about the beautiful dark twisted fantasy of Kanye West.

Other topics include their favorite “krazy” Kanye moments, the reddit theory that David Bowie predicted Kanye West's birth, and the proud Burnside family tradition of farting.
