The Oncoming Storm Ep 112: BF # 46 - It Doesn't Matter If It's Black or White

Oooooohhhhh, we are horrible, sniveling podcaster things, who must suffer at the hands of our listeners. Each week, we are treated worse and worse, as the hate crimes against podcasters increase. If you were kind and honorable listeners, you would certainly take the time to listen to episode 112 of The Oncoming Storm, wherein we talk about Flip Flop by one Jonathan Morris. Do you want to perform hate crimes against us? That's what you are doing  by not listening to your miserable, ugly hosts Josh, Ashley, Sacha, and Rachel discuss Slithergees, predestination paradoxes, and the sex lives of presidents. We even pander to your base desires and talk about "The Doctor", although it probably makes no difference to you. Take pity upon us, RIGHT NOW, and listen to our humble thoughts... then listen to all 112 episodes again. Just to show you aren't as horrible as us.

The Oncoming Storm... This time, we've got two of everybody. That certainly won't get confusing.

Warm up your vocal chords everyone! This isn't an ordinary episode of The Oncoming Storm. That's right, episode 107 is the musical episode! Well, it would have been, if Ashley and Rachel had let Josh have his way!

What's that? You don't like musicals? Well tough, because this is one story that is worth it! Stick around for the best little comedy-drama-musical with heart you've heard in ages!
