4.1: The Baltika Incident

It was a frigid night in mid-February: the zenith of New York’s annual outbreak of seasonal affective disorder, and Dan brought a sixer of strong Russian beer to the recording session. Also, Brian had recently attempted to assemble some Ikea furniture.

This regrettable podcast, in which a venerated American icon is referred to as “pretty slutty,” and which contains several uses of the phrase “pee-hole,” reflects all of these factors. Dan Wakes Up Screaming makes no apologies, but begs its listeners for empathy and tolerance.
