The True Bastards: Part Three

Alright keeping it a buck here, no one will blame you for skipping the intro this week (6:27). Luke and Dan rethink their ranking of the warriors from the Lot Lands and get into some serious statistics. Dan pushes back against Luke's criticism of Tine leadership and Luke decides we have a hot new reality show on our hands. Luke and Dan have a few parenting tips and of course Dan comes up with a few wild theories.

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro.
