March 22, 2017: Tonight We Honor Your Sacrifice!
The first show, post-fundraising marathon, and Ken and Andy are following up with some pledgers. In particular, tonight's show is used to award special prizes to the most destitute of pledgers from the marathon. Fans from last week call in with their stories, and Andy uses his spidey-sense and/or BS Detector verify the destitution of the callers.
The contenders are:
-A man named Nacho, with a $9000 credit card.
-A Chinese food delivery driver named Ron, who has no monthly income after insurance and car payment. As we listen in to a delivery, Ron forgets change, so he gets a huge tip of fifteen dollars extra for what turns out to be the wrong order. There is a chance he could lose his job over this. (Later, Ron calls back to let the team know how it all turned out)
-Artist and designer Scott from Alameda, who got laid off, and can't afford to live in his affluent town anymore, where he had moved to give his daughter the best shot at a good education. He is $90,000 in debt.
-A disabled caller who hasn't worked in years, can't afford gas or water, and had to chop firewood to stay warm. She has $25,000 in debt. -Emily from "In Real Life" makes her case as an underemployed private librarian.
-A caller who is $300,000 in debt.
-A man who can not afford to hire someone to shovel his driveway.
Ken sticks to his strict "no refunds" rule, but does hand out sweet prizes to the winners.
Also, Andy and Ken get their stories straight regarding Ken and his illegal cars. And there is an extra long theme song today - due to technical difficulties with Skype!
