The guys are back in the studio and it’s another episode of going wild. New game show idea: Hyenas talk and people bet if certain things they say are true or not. What do you think Cuz? We love it! This episode is about Gandhi and there are a few UNCOMFORTABLE truths about this Cuzzie. One of the most peaceful guys around, Ghandi was a civil rights leader from Porbandar, India. After living in South Africa and experiencing apartheid, Ghandi returned to India to gain independence from British rule. The kid liked to walk around half naked and promote the revolutionary idea that you can fight for something in a peaceful way. As you may know Gandhi was jailed for organizing protests, boycotting courts and more. He would even protest by refusing to eat for days. He famously protested the British salt tax and embarked on a month long walk to the Arabian Sea with thousands of people. And won! What a guy! But he also did some not good things. For example Gandhi believed in practicing celibacy and would “test” out his ability to refrain from lustful urges with young girls. GA-ROSSS! Listen to the full ep and hear how WILD he was and Gandhi’s enemies were too! REMINDER BABES: Even though Trump did not follow through with his promise to build a wall, Chris and Yannis did.
