What the HELL Were You Thinking?

By Dave Bledsoe

What the Hell Were You Thinking is a podcast where Host Dave Bledsoe invites you to explore your deep-seated grievances with life in the 21st century. Journey with us through infernal circles of absurdist politics, inexplicable pop culture, conspiracy theories, not-so-theoretical conspiracies, generational ouroboroi, Bigfoot erotica, Satanism, and evil clowns—all via rants based on some sincerely compelling (and surprisingly accurate!) history. No, there won’t be a quiz, but you’ll likely learn some new things you can be really pissed off about. So join your slightly-snockered host and a browbeaten, possibly imaginary producer, Gavin, while we ask the world a simple question--WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING?
