In Episode 8, Blister Eats His Words

Episode 8: The Two-Way Blade

Blister is caught in a lie so much worse than the hidden pastries that lured wharf rats to the bell tower.

For the Curious

Jokes for Kids from sock puppets?? Yes, please! (Because it’s funny and a tad creepy.)

Who could be more qualified to tell food jokes than a chef?

Kids are no laughing matter…except in this video.

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.

Will we send you urgent buy-now-before-they’re-gone-forever emails for Blister-and-Muck-branded hair care products? Nope. Will we send you a nonstop slew of discount codes for Seltzer and Horchata’s newly released memoir, The Im*peck*ables: Spy Games and True Tales from the World’s Top Tail Feathers? Nope. Even though it currently tops the Blaakrust Times bestseller list…  No, no.

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…

What do you call a flying bagel?

A *plane* bagel.  

Listener-Supported Listening

As you well know, the Blister and Muck Podcast is 100% listener supported. And that support comes in many forms, such as when you give it stars or a positive review on whatever app or platform you use to listen along. Reviews and likes help other listeners discover the show and join in this madcap caper! You can lend your support to the show by making a donation. And if you make a large enough donation to the show, I can quit my jobs and take up this podcast fulltime so that no more episodes in this third and final season will be delayed.

Holiday Shopping

Having trouble finding the perfect holiday gift for your beloved family or friends? Check out excellent RATions in the Blister and Muck Gift Shop. These made in the USA hats, t-shirts, sweatshirts, and masks ship from my hometown of Durango, Colorado and I include an exclusive audible surprise from the entire Blister and Muck crew!

Support Literacy

When you make a donation to the show or purchase an item from the gift shop, yes, you are helping me cover the costs of web hosting, sound FX, and music, but you are also providing something so much more profound. Not all young people have adults in their lives who can take the time to read stories, even though read-a-longs help our minds develop creativity and critical thinking skills. I hope that my podcast fills that void for kids who need it. Because money can be obstacle to families facing income scarcity, I release each episode for free. Your donations help ensure this story is always available to the young people confronting scarcities every day.


Special thanks to Roland Rudzitis for serving up the Blister and Muck theme song. Additional music from Komiku, Kevin McLeod, Monplaisir, and John Bartmann.  Creepy sounds [1] [2] from Mike Koenig and Daniel Simon. All other sounds from the public domain. Always at the top of my bestseller list is my family, friends, and fans. One for one and all for you!
