A podcast about self-care, because sometimes self-care is screaming into the void. Here we'll use expletives and alcohol to process the creeps, jerks, and weasels that compose the s***ty elevator music of our lives.
On this episode, Ren and Ginger wonder aloud if the best part of waking up is fascism in your cup. Black Rifle Coffee Company is supposed to sell coffee, but what they really sell is "owning the libs" to guys whose entire personality is "GUNS!" Unfortunately, when you package your product in American flags and assault weapons in order to cater to military LARPers and right-wingers, the other circle in this already terrible Venn Diagram includes mass shooters and Nazis. Triggered, yet? Featuring Matt Gaetz federal sex trafficking takes, whether doing cocaine is too gay, and yet another term Ginger has to explain to her dad. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
On this episode, Ginger returns to her roots: true crime, bad science, and sexual predators. We're talking about Richard Gardner, child psychiatrist and man who was definitely subscribed to TheRedPill on Reddit, whose name was recently dropped in HBO's "Allen V. Farrow" docuseries. Gardner was the brain behind "Parental Alienation Syndrome," a thing that is definitely not real but still managed to use in order to ruin lives for decades. This is definitely a Vodka Cranberry (hold the Cranberry) kind of episode. Featuring Ren's new favorite serotonin-boosting TV show, Destiel becoming canon, and the eternal reminder to stop comparing your hurt feelings to the Holocaust. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
CW: child physical and sexual abuse, domestic violence, divorce, suicide, misogyny
On this episode, Ginger discusses another historic inventor who was weirder (and worse) than you thought. Alexander Graham Bell is well known as an American icon for his invention of the telephone, despite the fact that he was Scottish and lived mostly in Canada. What's less known is his party trick of fisting his dog's mouth, dating and marrying his teenage student, and--oh yeah--all the ableism and eugenics. Happy Deaf History Month! Featuring a Monty Python reference, the ethics of masturbating to Space Jam, and the revelation that Ren and Ginger don't know anything about President James A. Garfield. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
On this episode, Ren talks about the very recent phenomenon of burning down entire ecosystems in order to learn the shape of your unborn child's genitals. Gender reveal parties are only about 10-12 years old, a pre-pubescent sh*tbird that's composed entirely of gender stereotypes and capitalism. But, who cares about undermining the gender binary when there's cake involved, I guess. Mazel tov! Featuring Ren's terrible college roommate, Laverne Cox as our gender guardian angel, and the best compliment anyone's ever received. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
On this episode, Ginger returns to her favorite subject: terminally horny historical figures. Victor Hugo is most well known for 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame' and 'Le Miserables', two very sad stories that became hugely popular musicals that Ren sings while in the shower. He was also a noted poet, an outspoken statesman, and a giant pervert who kept a secret f*** diary. Truly, la vie boheme. Featuring live bats, all things French (tm), and a world united by the desire to be stepped on by a ten-foot-tall vampire lady. Citations at thisfnguypod.com
On this episode, Ren reminds us about the Golden Rule: The Internet doesn't forget and it doesn't forgive. Not-yet-expelled Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green clearly did not learn this lesson. Racist Facebook memes, harassing school shooting survivors, calling on her followers to storm the Capitol back in 2019: it's been a whirlwind for this Crossfit wine mom on her first month at the job. Who knew that calling for the death of your coworkers would come at the performance evaluation? Featuring apologies to 2000s pop icons, handcuffing the devil, and, of course, Jewish space lasers. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome to the 50th episode of TFNG! As a special treat, Ginger is gonna make this so weird! We're talking intactivists, a very niche corner of the internet, which is claims "No Foreskin, No Peace." Unfortunately, this group also overlaps with men's rights activists, incels, and the other cool internet kids, all with a healthy dose of--what else?--antisemitism. Featuring crusty pasta nipples, clitoris envy, and another term Ginger has to explain to her parents. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
On this episode, Ginger talks about an event in history that bears no similarity to current events whatsoever. The Wilmington Massacre, also known as the Wilmington Race Riot by people who think "cracker" is just as bad as the n-word, was the only successful coup d'etat in American history (hopefully). To sum up: it's about white people terrorizing black people for things like voting, having jobs, and giving white women all the orgasms they deserve. Featuring Elizabeth from Knoxville, moustache rides, and the worst game ever of F***, Marry, Kill. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
On this latest episode, Ginger tells a tale of a sh*tty law and a sh*ttier court case that would eventually become inspiration for the Nazis. Buck v. Bell all started with this little idea called eugenics and ended up with the decision that anyone considered lesser doesn't get to keep their reproductive organs. Add a little misogyny, mix it up with ableism, never stop shaking it, and presto, you have a truly terrible cocktail. Featuring New Year's Eve parties, a McElroy reference, and much, much screaming. Citations at thisfnguypod.com. CW: sexual assault, ableism, forced sterilization.
It's New Year's Eve and it couldn't have come soon enough! On this latest episode, Ren reminds us all about what even happened in 2020, a true dumpster fire of a year. We're talking murder hornets and bushfires, impeachment trials and criminal convictions, natural disasters and Netflix shows. Most of this episode is just the phrase: "That was THIS year???" Turns out, a lot can happen in 365 days. So, queue this episode up, pour yourself several glasses of champagne, and send off the year 2020 with a giant F*** You. Featuring Jewish traditions, Baby Shark, and John Lennon's "Imagine." Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Happy holidays! On this festive episode, Virginia takes us all the way back to medieval times, where folks celebrated their winter celebrations with turkey legs and torturing peasants on spiked wheels. First, we talk Good King Wenceslas, the dude behind the beloved Christmas carol, its surprisingly bloody end, and forays onto Ancestry.com. Next, we discuss Les Bal des Ardents, a hell of a holiday party involving fire, being on fire, and the subsequent apology tour. Featuring Ren's mom, DJ, and the plot of Office Space. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
On this episode, Ren reminds us that where there's smoke, there's probably a dumpster fire composed entirely of racists kicked off of Twitter. Parler is a social media platform aimed at conservatives, where the only rules are: no crimes, no bots, and no pottymouths? Anyway, Parler is truly a beacon on the hill crying out: "Give me your antivaxxers, your violent extremists, your huddled masses yearning to scream bigotry, the wretched refuse of the internet shore." And, honestly? You can have 'em. Featuring Thanksgiving debacles, Milfs For Trump, and a word we cannot have anywhere in this description. Citations at ThisFNGuyPod.com.
On this episode, Ginger recollects on one of the most lauded industrialists and biggest antisemites in American history, Henry Ford. Here's a man who claimed to invent the assembly line, policed his workers' social lives, and was Adolf Hitler's greatest racist inspiration. Truly, an American hero. Featuring mechanophilia, seances for legal advice, and the best Craigslist ad ever written. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
On this episode, Ginger takes us back to a time in American history where a rich blowhard used his political power to increase his own personal wealth. That's right, back to the 1850's to Boss Tweed, the first and only corrupt politician in America. Featuring cooked books, diamond broaches, and axe-wielding street gangs. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
In this latest episode, Ren decides to take us back to one of the first episodes of TFNG and do a full expose on Boo Boo the Fool himself: Jacob Wohl. Young, dumb, and full of commitment to keep doing fraud, Jacob is a far-right troll, conspiracy theorist, and baby man whose schemes include repeatedly making false accusations of sexual assault while using his mom's phone number. Featuring a bad microphone, the E-Trade baby, and Chester the cheetah's sexual energy. Also, a wild Karen dog appears! Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome to our second episode of the official TFNG game show, The Caucasity! We are joined by the illustrious Susie Creamcheese, Ren and Ginger's favorite cat lady and craft wunderkind. Ren and Susie will go head-to-head, trying to figure out how there are so many antisemites, which fascist said what, and why oh why Alex Jones keeps taking his shirt off. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
On today's episode, Ginger introduces Ren to a man of morals, a man of faith, a man who said that feminists and gays caused 9/11. Jerry Falwell Sr., the man behind the Moral Majority and Liberty University, left an indelible mark on American society, like a particularly nasty case of shingles, if the shingles were also incredibly racist. Featuring tequila cocktails, the Teletubbies, Ginger's high school hijinks, and an ever-growing list of side characters. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
We've decided to take a break from our weekly game of Rightwing Bull***t to become what all podcasts strive to be: a true crime podcast. Faith. Betrayal. Sex. Murder. On this week's Drag 'Em Race, the true story about Flordelis de Souza, full-time saint, part time cult leader, mother to 55 children, married to only one of those children. This queen truly slays the competition, and that's because she literally murdered her husband. Start your engines, and may the best woman get arrested for heinous crimes! Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
On this very special episode, we are joined by Ren and Ginger's collective husbands on a game show of "Which terrible person said this terrible thing?" Including such icons like Ronald Reagan, Phyllis Schlafly, Donald Trump, and a lot of jokes about how many dumb motherf***ers run our country. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Ginger takes Ren on a journey into the world of child trafficking, which surprisingly has nothing to do with satanic cabals or online furniture outlets. Georgia Tann was a strong lady boss back when there weren't very many lady bosses. Too bad her business was an adoption racket that went on for more than a decade. We're talking conning families, destroying records, straight up kidnapping, and going door-to-door to sell kids like they were vacuums. The 1940's was a weird time, folks. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
On today's episode, Ren takes us on a journey to the worst part of the internet, where Beyonce is Italian and everyone's a pedophile. That's right, we're talking Conspiracy with a capital Q. QAnon is a strange and wacky tale, full of antisemitism, Hillary Clinton references, and growing concerns about domestic terrorism, and now they're running for Congress! Just what our very stable country needs. Citations at thisfnguypod.com
On today's episode, Ginger reads our star signs as she continues discussing the Reagans. Specifically, how an astrologer to the stars advised the President and his wife on everything from press conferences to trips on Air Force One to bombing Libya. The moon is indeed in the seventh house, where What-The-F*** aligns with Mars. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
On today's episode, Ren gets a belated birthday gift from Ginger, and it's the best/worst gift ever. Ronald Reagan is known for a lot of things: Iran-Contra, the War on Drugs, ignoring the AIDS crisis, destroying the economy, but now we can learn about his true legacy: his love of jelly beans and how much we still hate him. Citations available at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners! Despite Ginger's assertions, the Florida panhandle produces more than just alligators in MAGA hats. It also is home to U.S Representative Matt Gaetz, the human embodiment of Axe body spray and obnoxious Trump puppet. We're talking about political legacies, dark campaign money, a truly abhorrent driving record, excessive use of Twitter, and at least one secret adult son. Citations at thisfnguypod.com
Welcome back, dear listeners! If you're an American who has been awake for the last one hundred years or so, you might have heard about all this ruckus about Confederate monuments. Ginger takes us to our hometown of Richmond, Virginia, the capital of the Confederacy and home to Monument Ave, a street filled with Confederate statues and traffic circles that people still can't f***ing use properly. We answer all the burning questions like: Is memorializing traitors and racists a bad thing? Do we really learn history by driving past statues of slave owners? Are horses sexy? We're diving into this controversy headfirst, so hang onto your butts! Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners. You ever wonder what would happen if a 2003 Teen Vogue magazine became a person? Well, look no further! In this episode, Ren enlightens us about Meghan McCain, conservative pundit, television personality, and did you know she was Senator John McCain's daughter? From her 2008 campaign blog, to her "authorial abortions," to her current position as The View's resident chaos demon, Meghan has blazed quite a trail for someone who has an art history degree and never brings up who her father is. In the end, this woman has a more complex legacy, and sluttier hair, than you think. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners! You know we love a weirdo and a pervert here at TFG. Hell, that's practically Ginger's brand. And, there are none weirder and pervier than Nikola Tesla. Yes, that Tesla, genius inventor, president of the Edison-Was-A-Hack club, and owner of very large thumbs. Who else would cause a lightning storm when his sugar daddy fell through, or pay his rent with a death ray, or fall in love with a woman of the avian persuasion? Still don't believe us? Well, I guess you'll have to tune in and find out for yourself! Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners? Here's an age-old question: what's in a name? Specifically, a name that's become a widespread meme, symbolizing botched bobs, speaking to management, and an entitled attitude. On this episode, Ren explores the evolution of the 'Karen,' the meme's possible origins, its current iterations, and the various characteristics that make a Karen a Karen. Middle-aged? Usually. Female? Typically. White? Almost always. What's in a name? Well, my dears, let's find out. Citations at this fnguypod.com.
Note: at the time of this recording, no arrests had been made for the murder of George Floyd.
Welcome back, bright-eyed ingenues! On this episode, we're heading straight to Tinseltown, where everyone's dreams come true, particularly one man's dream to ruin everyone else's good time. Ginger gives an Oscar-award winning performance as she tells us about Will Hays, former chairman of the Republic National Convention, eventual president of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America, and forever known as the Movie Morals Czar. His reign included wagging his finger, ruining careers, and hating everything fun. We're talking censorship, we're talking miscegenation, we're talking homophobia; it's all here, folks! Grab your popcorn and join in! Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners! On this most auspicious day, the day that Hulu releases its brand new series 'The Great,' we figured we would give you the lowdown on one of its primary figures. No, not Catherine the Great, but her husband, Peter the Mediocre At Best. Ginger takes us on a journey through Little Carl's terrible childhood, to his switcheroo princedom, all the way to his (186) days as Emperor of Russia, and, on the way, we'll take side roads through Harry Potter references, the optics of bestiality, and why even rich people with sh*tty childhoods still deserve to be eaten. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners! Spring is here, Ren and Ginger are still figuring out their sound equipment, and did you hear about this "pandemic" thing going on? On this episode, Ren reminds Ginger that things can always be worse, because, even in the midst of a pandemic, people are entitled assholes about not being able to go to their local Applebee's to drink cheap beer and yell at the waitstaff. These anti-quarantine protests are loud, proud, and full of shadowy financial origins and conservative grifters? Social distancing is communism, y'all! Listen and love us! Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners! Ren and Ginger continue to take on the technical challenges that plague this hellscape we are all trapped in. In the meantime, do you know what Adolf Hitler and Bugs Bunny have in common? If your answer was an opera composer who couldn't keep it in his pants and hated Jewish people, then you know your musical history! Richard Wagner may be riding in on some Valkyries, but that's probably because he's trying to escape his many debt collectors. Or the husbands of all the women he f***ed. And, there were a lot of them. Either way, listen and love us! Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners! In this episode, Ren and Ginger brave this brave new world of remote tele-podcasting to talk about a new way to wellness: semen retention. That's right, you can blue-ball your way to wellness, gain irresistible magnetic attraction, and achieve god-like powers. Sure, you may find yourself in bed with misogynists, incels, and even Nazis, but sacrifices are necessary in order to achieve enlightenment. Namaste. Citations found at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners! This week, Ginger takes us on the wildest f***ing ride down to the sunny shores of Florida, where a not-quite-dead Anita Bryant first started her anti-gay crusade. If you haven't heard of Anita Bryant, that's fine, just know that she's into God, orange juice, and ruining people's lives. Oh, and she sang sometimes. Also, Ren announces her first quest in this brave, post-apocalyptic world. Come, little orange birds, listen and love us! Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners. Ren and Ginger return for Part 2 of our Michael Bloomberg episode, because we love you so much. On this episode, we dive into his tenure as mayor, starting with his spending many millions on his campaigns, public housing full of lead-based paint, the unconstitutional surveillance of Muslims, and trying use cruise ships to deal with the city's homelessness problem. We are all in self-quarantine anyway, so there's plenty of podcast to listen to! Stay safe! Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners! In our very first two-parter here at This F***ing Guy!, Ren explains to Ginger why Michael Bloomberg, former Democratic presidential candidate, is the literal worst. We explore Mike's humble beginnings before launching a golden parachute into a corporate environment where short skirts were "necessary" for promotions, pregnant women lost job opportunities, and coworker body shots were encouraged. And, all of this before Mike became Mayor! Listeners, we are very tired. Come join us in our exhaustion. (Jammies not included). Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners! To finish out our Black History Month mission of calling out racist shenanigans, Ginger talks about the Southern Strategy, which is why Republicans get to say they're "the party of Lincoln" while still using the phrase "the War of Northern Aggression." Ah, the proud American tradition of ignoring all historical context. Lots of names are dropped (Goldwater, Nixon, Reagan, Schlafly) and lots of dogwhistles are... whistled. Join us on this incredible journey, now with more Beans! Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners. Sorry for the delay; did you know that they don't teach you audio editing in undergraduate social science programs? No matter! On this week's episode, Ren discusses how difficult it is to talk about someone's legacy, especially when that someone is Rush Limbaugh. Virulent racist, gross-ass homophobe, and writer of children's books (featuring a talking horse named Liberty, which is as terrifying as it sounds), Ginger gets schooled on some of Rush's greatest lessons, such as the proper usage of the word "feminazi," how to get fired from almost every job, and why Europe is vastly inferior to the US (hint: it has something to do with interior plumbing). Also, we have the (brief) return of Beans! Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners. Ginger takes us back into the Dead Asshole Archives to talk about NOT another U.S. president! Instead, we will be talking about Phyllis Schlafly, a woman who did her damnedest to screw over other women. Fierce opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment and lover of ugly doilies, Phyllis' contributions to the hellhole we are currently living in cannot be underplayed or overemphasized. And, Ren will be very sexually confused when the mini-series comes out starring Cate Blanchett. Be sexually confused with us! Citations at thisfnguypod.com.

Welcome back, dear listeners. On this episode, Ren decides to educate Ginger on Kaitlin Bennett. You know, Kaitlin Bennett? Oh, you never heard of her? Well, that's because she's not important whatsoever, but she did achieve a modicum of fame as the Kent State Gun Girl. Yup, she does have a name. We're talking social media snafus, lame publicity stunts, and a wanton misunderstanding of how anything works. It's gonna be a fun one, folks. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners. On this episode, Ginger dives back into the Dead Asshole Archives to unearth--you guessed it--another US president! It's amazing how many of those guys are in there. And, while Warren G. Harding is not exactly memorable in terms of high school history class, he was still a piece of shit. And, surprisingly horny? Anyway, tune in and marvel at the most boring pervert you'll never meet. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Correction: During the episode, Ren mistakenly says that President Lyndon B. Johnson named his penis, but it was, in fact, Harding. He called it "Jerry." We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
Welcome back, listeners. On today's episode, Ren invites Ginger to the 22 Convention, the "mansplaining" event of the century, where men use terms like "manosphere," "patriarch," and "sexual marketplace" to teach women how to be great again.

Welcome back, dear listeners. We hope you all had a lovely holiday season and, in the spirit of the New Year, Ginger has decided to try something new from Dead Asshole Archives.

Trains outfitted with machine guns? Of course. Let's start 2020 off right! Citations available at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners. It's that most wonderful time of the year, the time when dedicated soldiers from across America fight in the worst conflict in all of human history. That's right, it's "The War on Christmas." People are back on their jingle-bell bullshit, and Ren roasts more than chestnuts as she takes Ginger on a holly and holy-shit-filled journey, from prudish Puritans to faulty Facebook memes. Hark the holiday hysteria and pass the mulled wine, please. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners. On this episode, Ginger dives back into the Dead Asshole Archives to unearth Roy Cohn, the living embodiment of all those lawyers-are-evil jokes. We're talking homophobia, we're talking racism, we're talking the rampant abuse of the justice system. When your name is thrown around with the likes of Joseph McCarthy, Ronald Reagan, and Donald Trump, you know you got a real turd on your hands. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners. On this week's episode, Ren dives into the anti-vax biosphere to discuss Kerri Rivera, mother, grifter, and purveyor of bleach. Kerri, who is a "doctor on homeopathy," is really invested in "curing" autism in children using bleach enemas, a thing that cannot happen using something that is definitely not medicine. Yes, it's as horrible as it sounds. BIG OL CONTENT WARNING FOR CHILD ABUSE AND ABLEISM ON THIS ONE, FOLKS. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners. Today, Ginger dives into the Dead Asshole archives and dredges up another Nobel Prize winner and our very first president, Woodrow Wilson.

Welcome back, dear listeners. Today, Ren takes on Ginger's unknowing and yet well-deserved arch nemesis, Ken Cuccinelli.

There's a lot of terrible to cover here, so it's gonna be a real doozy, folks. Citations on our website at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners. Today, Ginger takes the lead to talk about pretentious writer and Dead Asshole, Ayn Rand.

Citations on our website at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners. Today, we play with a new format and explore a seasonal theme. We're talking ghosties, we're talking ghoulies, we're talking... shitty Pocahontas costumes?

You're gonna a lot of mulled wine for this one. Citations at thisfnguypod.com.
Welcome back, dear listeners. This episode we delve into the gross racism and incitement to violence bestowed upon us by D.W. Griffith and "memesmith" Carpe Donktum. You heard us.
