Tim was on fire this week! Co-Host Ray Kump sat down with Tim during the Unite the Right rally to discuss the descent into madness. That didn't stop Tim and Ray going down the typical rabbit hole of madness talking everything from hoarders to cellphone kiosk salesmen to Aaron Carter using bisexuality as an out to his recent DUI. Tim is always hilarious but this episode was truly bonkers.
It's Summer Tourney time at The Roastmasters. Host Luis J. Gomez welcomed in celebrity judges Joe List, Big Jay Oakerson, Rich Vos and Bonnie Mcfarlane to judge the opening round of the tourney to decide who would face either Patrick Schroeder or Eli Sairs for the Unified Roast Belt.

Luis J. Gomez started off on Wednesday inviting in Tim Dillon to fill Zack's co-host chair along with guest Mike Recine.

The Skanks started off the episode mocking Luis' foray into online shopping before reminiscing about the good old days of just robbing companies through the mail. Of course it's impossible to get Dave and Owen in a room together without dipping a toe into politics, so of course our pending nuclear war with North Korea was on the table. Luis took the opportunity to turn intern Luke into his racist Asian puppet in this classic clip.
Without a guest for the first time in over a month host Bruce Buffer and co-host TJ Desantis took the full hour to discuss current events of the day. It wouldn't be a discussion with fight fans if Mcgregor vs Mayweather wasn't brought up and the two did a deep dive on the pending superfight including Conor's pending return to MMA. The pair also discussed a crazy story about kidnappers in Europe, the dichotomy between state and local Marijuana legalization and mental health issues.

The two rockstars discussed Ice Cubes 3 on 3 basketball league, using celebrity to get into a wrestling show and trying to hustle downed lumber from the forest around Jesse's house.
Host Dave Smith was ready to rock Friday night. After a week of almost every show on the network touching on escalating tensions with North Korea there was no way Dave wasn't going to tackle the issue hard. Dave and co-host Robbie debated Trumps strategy to deal with Kim Jung Un, with Dave admonishing the POTUS for talking smack while in an active hostage situation. The pair discussed the effectiveness of trade sanctions and the political capital that comes with war mongering. Dave really brought it this episode, bringing a level headed, big picture look at this wild situation gripping headlines across the nation.
