Checked Out Episode 302- "The Going to Hell Show"- Pope-apalooza, Fake 9-11 Comedian and the Disemboweling Don Juan

This may be the most politically- and all-other-ways- incorrect show we've done to date. But, we're checked out of such things giving a shit what we say, so, you should expect it by now. That said, let us just remind you that our sponsor and any business we promote DO NOT necessarily agree with us. We promote them because we like them. Moving on...So, Pope Francis went on a whirlwind tour of the states (or three of them) last week. In this episode you will find the most hard-hitting, comprehensive coverage of his visit. Not really. We take a sophomoric approach. Instead of fawning over him like many liberals who used to hate popes and Catholics now do, we act like children and ponder why all popes sound like Dracula and thisAt the end of the pope discussion, Jimmy plays a clip of the Satan worshipper from a few episodes ago. That reminds Matt that that whole video was faked. This leads to a discussion of the last month's big frauds. The Satan worshipper and this douche who…

Checked Out Episode 301- The Sober Season Premiere: Author Eric Lindblade, Melanie From the Lodges and Multi-Level Marketing

This is the official premiere episode of Checked Out's season 3. On it, author of "Fight as Long as Possible: The Battle of Newport Barracks, North Carolina, February 2, 1864"  fills in for Jimmy the Italian and talks a bit about his book. Melanie Barnes, from the sales department at The Lodges at Gettysburg, sits down with the boys and talks about what the Lodges has to offer you. Then Matt, Pete and Eric dive into the crazy cast of characters that one might encounter when living in, or even visiting, Gettysburg. That wraps up with Matt and Pete recounting their experiences with a couple of dudes who tried to get them into an Amway-type company called "Market-America". Those pyramid schemes are the Scientology of business. Book a trip at The Lodges at Gettysburg today!Order your copy of Eric's book here!Music Credits"Exhilarate", "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies"Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribut…

Checked Out Episode 300- The Season Premiere: Czig Meister Contest Rules; Moonshine and Memories and Annoying Wedding DJs

The planned Gettysburg trip was doomed from the start. Jimmy the I-talian fell ill the night before the team had to leave, our Sunday-night guest was stuck in Baltimore and had to reschedule for Monday and Matt and Pete were exhausted. BUT, on the plus side, the most important part of the trip went off without a hitch. Our accomodations, courtesy of the Lodges at Gettysburg were ready and waiting for us, complete with two six packs of beer in the fridge. Seeing as how Matt and Pete were down there with all the equipment set up, they decided to record an impromptu show, while drinking Ole Smokey Moonshine. This is an open-ended soft-open to the season. That's why it's number 300 and not 301. In it, Matt and Pete discuss whatever comes to mind including the poll question about whether or not Matt should go on Trippy's show and what the decision is; how the Butterfly Effect caused this trip in the first place, annoying wedding DJs and more. Most importantly, they announce the…

Tony Deluza's Football Fahgettaboudit #2

What are tony's picks for week 2? There's only one way to find out. PRESS PLAY!!

Check out this episode!

Subscribe to Our YouTube Channel

Ya know when you're raving to your friends about how great our show is and how much you think they'll love it? Of course the segment you want them to hear as an example of our greatness is buried deep within an episode and by the time you scrub through the episode to find it, they've lost interest. Don't you hate that? Of course. We all do.

Now there's a solution:

From time to time we will upload various types of clips to our YouTube page. Sometimes they'll be important episodes like interviews, etc. or segments that ended up on the cuting room floor because of time constraints. Other times it might be an entire segment that our listeners say they really like, like Caitlyn Jenner on the ESPY Awards. Also, we'll have shorts and classic bits from the show.

Whatever we decide to post there, you need to subscribe. If you don't have a YouTube account, create one and subscribe here.

So It Looks Like Matt Will Be Going on Let's Talk

The voters have spoken and the results are in. Out of the following choice: "Yes, No", "Fuck Yes", "Hells-to-the-no" and "Why bother?", 45% of votes cast say "Fuck yes" Matt should go on Trippy Trev's Lets Talk and bury the hatchet. 
We will keep you posted as to when that will be. Thank you to those who voted.

We're Going to Gettysburg

We will be in Gettysburg from Sept 13-15. While there we will be recording the first two episodes of season 3. If you are in the Gettysburg area and want exposure for your business, send us an email in the contact box at the top of the righthand margin. But the catch is that you or someone associated with you has to come on and be able to "hang" while talking about the business. In other words, have a good sense of humor. 😀

Checked Out Episode 226- The Season Finale; Desnudas, Stinky Island, Hello To The Cities and MORE!

Ay Dios mio! What a crazy two seasons its been. As we bring our second season to a close, Matt is still considering Trippy's offer to appear on his show and is considering your feedback on the matter (Tweet your thoughts to @CheckedOut2015). The boys finish strong in this episode covering a variety of topics that are all absurd. From titties in Times Square courtesy of Desnudas, to a Satanist who gives us soundboard gold, this show runs the gamut. Matt even manages to break his own rule and read just one more message from Bingo Bingo Nations. It is, perhaps, her best one yet. Plus, regular listener feedback printed out on Jimmy's old Dot Matrix and our tribute to all of the cities that have been downloading our show.
