23min of Ska : Disposable Assassin

Surreality just got funky! Or “rude” I should say “Surreality just got rude” because this is a ska podcast, right? Anyway, “Scud the Disposable Assassin” is a top tier comic for me, so over the top and fun and oddly, one of the easier episodes to find current music to fit the theme. Fun comic, fun music, fun episode! It’s cool to be a ska podcast.
