Episode 38 – Salty Bet



Saltybet is a website where you can use fake money to bet on the most ridiculous matchups in all pop-culture history. It’s pretty much digital cock-fighting on LSD. It’s extremely addictive, absolutely insane, and 100% free. Come get weird with us as we go all-in on Ronald McDonald beating up Mike Tyson in an igloo to Korean hip-hop. Yeah, it’s weird.
