Now that's what I call a POUR showing.

[The joke is that the show involved POURing, but was also POOR in quality. It's tempting to omit the wordplay altogether and just note that this episode was lousy, but one doesn't strike upon puns of this caliber every day.]

It's a special live recording, which means the lower-than-usual sound quality is an exciting feature.

I think this episode is one of your funnier ones, although I agree with the sentiment about making it a video podcast. I'm going to try this request out with my brother next week.

By the way, now that RequestCast has started, what's going to happen with Request Comics?

This was entertaining enough that I don't care that you did not actually fulfill my request.

This is a great idea. I honestly thought I requested it because it fits my penchant for making people for trying awful digestibles.

Like if I knew you guys were going to be together again I would request that you guys make each other horrible sandwiches or something.

Spending time on RequestCast does mean less time making comics, but Request Comics is staying around. Let us know how trying this with your brother turns out!

I actually bought some vita coco, because it was the only one I can find, and it is every bit as terrible as you guys say on the podcast. I didn't think it would be that bad, because I've actually had coconut milk before, but this was pretty bad.

the only one I recommend is the lychee wasabi beverage, and I recommend that as an experience, not as a drink.

Great!

We just tried it this weekend. Picture your podcast, but instead of both of us getting strange-and-probably-disgusting drinks, we mostly got just plain strange drinks. We also mixed our own concoctions. This made guessing difficult.

I recommend:
- Melted mint chocolate chip ice cream.
- Carrot juice (seriously, this stuff is good!).
- "One spoonful of every drink in the fridge." (Maybe not right after that episode, though.)

I do not recommend:
- Lemonade with three spoons of dissolved cinnamon.
- Beet juice.
- Salt soda.

I bought some Coconut Almond Milk and it was pretty good. Definitely did not taste like coco vita at all, more like "mature" coconuts.

Carrot juice is the top.

I like melted mint chip ice cream much more than carrot juice. It was actually my favorite type of melted ice cream as a kid.
