What’s an episode of Sklarbro County without drunken, nude news stories? Guest Cole Stratton comes prepared with a Terrell Owens’ co-ed softball tale, and the gang touches on Tom Brady’s creepy contests, drunken Facebook-initiated fights, and a “human sandtrap” covered in feces. Plus, the Bruce Jenner/Bryant Gumbel feud heats up. If this episode was a championship, you’d display it as a classical bust on your wall of podcasts. Don’t forget to pick up your tickets to see Sklarbro Country live at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival on July 25 and at Denver’s Comedy Works on July 27 and 28.
