Subscribers Get More Than Notifications

When you SUBSCRIBE right here at the Blister and Muck headquarters, you’ll know precisely when each new episode airs. You’ll get a delightful dose of intriguing history or fun facts related to the topics discussed in the episode. On top of that, you also get a free joke.

For instance…

Where do baby mushrooms come from?
From their mommy’s mush*womb*!

Why is it hard to have a conversation with a lady mushroom?
Because *shiitake* too much.

Why do mushrooms make music in the D major key?
Because they’re *D* composers.

How do you distinguish an edible mushroom from a poisonous mushroom?
Tell a stranger: here, eat this! 

Entirely Listener-Supported

Blister and Muck is 100% listener supported. Generous listeners making donations or shopping in the Blister and Muck Gift Shop are the reason why this show never pauses to share a commercial for new mattresses or protein powders made from ground up grasshoppers.

Oh! In case you hadn’t heard, the holidays are not canceled this year. Odds are good you won’t have pandemic lockdowns as an excuse to not buy anyone any gifts this year. Don’t get caught empty handed at the last minute and assume that passing out pet rocks will save you. Instead, get your holiday gifts from the Blister and Muck Gift Shop! There’s high-quality, made in the USA hats, T-shirts, sweatshirts, and yes, even face masks—all in a wide array of colors to suit your colorful friends and family members. Plus, when your Blister and Muck t-shirt, tote bag, or sweatshirt arrives, you’ll find a secret surprise from me and the entire Blister and Muck crew!

Another terrific way to support the show is to give it some stars or a positive review on whatever app or platform you use to listen along. Reviews and likes help other listeners discover this madcap caper.
