The Drunken Peasants Podcast is satirical in nature, and while we do occasionally delve into serious issues and discussions, our primarily purpose is to entertain and amuse. In other words...don't take this SHIT too seriously.

— The disclaimer read aloud by TJ at the start of every episode.

Coming to you live, from the frigid armpit of America. This is The Drunken Peasants Podcast with Ben and TJ, bringing you opinions of the news from an altered perspective!

See full intro here.

From its humble roots as the No Bullshit Podcast, The Drunken Peasants Podcast , also known simply as ԀP, is a popular YouTube show from Seattle, Washington (formerly Columbus, Ohio). The hosts are TJ (The Amazing Atheist), Scotty, Ben and Paul. They like to pick apart the news in a fun and entertaining way, as well as debate various guests, respond to other videos, mock general stupidity, interact with their community, and ԀP the internet from an altered perspective. The show has lasted for over two years, but has already collected a large following and countless inside jokes.

The peasants have had arguments with many people, including: a Christian walrus and his posse, a black guy with a corduroy fetish, a crying little bitch who "exposes evil", a deplorable piece of shit with a math degree, an attention horse, a gobsmacking overcooked Hitler, a faithful Christian who sucks of guys behind the porn store, a fear-mongering preacher cashing in on stupidity, a doc-dropping kangaroo, a race card-throwing garage enthusiast, and a pro-slavery black person who denies the existence of starving children.

The YouTube channel managed to hit 100,000 subscribers by November of 2015, and has over 25,000,000 views. ԀP is so popular that there is even a wiki based on it.

Hosts

  • Ben - The technically-inclined mononymous host of Drunken Peasants, along with TJ, Scotty, and PaulsEgo. He is TJ's wrestling-themed gimp and is often locked in his basement while the show is off-air. TJ has also described Ben as the star of the show.[1] He often plays the role of the straight man in staunch contrast to TJ's more eccentric and blunt personality. His first appearance was No Bullshit Podcast.
  • TJ Kirk - A professional ranter, author, and the creator of the atheist YouTube channel simply titled, The Amazing Atheist.[2] In addition, he is a co-host of Drunken Peasants [3] alongside his tech bitch Ben, his younger brother, Scotty, and the yin to his yang, Paul. One of the founding members of the podcast alongside his friend Ben. His first appearance was No Bullshit Podcast.
  • Scotty Kirk - TJ's younger brother who primarily contributes to the podcast through nasally rants and raw sex appeal. He was initially intended as a regular guest of the show, but he has since stolen the hearts of many fans and became a full host. His first appearance was Episode 2.
  • Paul's Ego - An atheist YouTuber that serves as the fourth acting co-host of  Drunken Peasants. Essentially, a shorter and fatter TJ, Paul has garnered renown among the DP community for being a homeless yet lovable piece of human garbage. His first appearance was Episode 17. The show is helped immensely by his presence, as it would get boring just watching three liberal commies from Ohio talk to each other. He began making regular appearances every Friday starting with episode 151. Paul was made an official host of the show after being fisted by TJ during Episode 200.

Segments

Main article: Segments

Drunken Peasants is divided into many segments. As the show has gone on, the segments have contributed more and more to the show's structure. The intros are often made by the talented motherfuckers in ԀP's fanbase. Originally the show only involved two segments at most per episode, though the show has evolved over time to a more segment-based format, as a result segments are important to understand the show structure.

  • Brett Keane Segment - An entire segment of Drunken Peasants dedicated to roasting the Butt King. Keane has made an insane amount of videos responding to the peasants, stirring shit on YouTube, or just doing everyday breached manatee activities. As a result, he is ripe for material and the segment is among the most popular in the show's history.
  • Crazy Craigslist Ads - A segment where the peasants read ads from Craigslist, which are often sexual solicitations. Every ad is automatically believed to be true.
  • Crazy People - A segment used to showcase all the online lunatics discovered by the peasants. Although this has technically been going on for a while, it has only recently become it's own official segment, with an intro.
  • DP Action News - A central segment where news related shit is played. In it's first incarnation, it was the first real segment introduced to the podcast.
  • Fan Mail - A segment of the Drunken Peasants in which TJ and company open assorted boxes of stupid bullshit their fans sent to them.
  • Feminist Slam Poetry - A segment in which the peasants attempt to survive a grueling feminist ramble on while trying to be artsy, attempting to express their points seemingly in the most grating way possible.
  • Information Segment - A segment of Drunken Peasants in which the hosts talk about a piece of media and give information about it.[4]
  • Music Breaks - A segment taking place between the show where the Drunken Peasants play music and do whatever the fuck they want for a little while.
  • Pokémon Hotline - A spontaneous event interrupting the Brett Keane Segment in which the peasants attempt to get tips about Pokémon Go, though it always seems to result in a story about Keane or his home town Festus, Missouri.
  • Post Show - A retired audio-only segment primarily hosted on SoundCloud. The post show gave a behind-the-scenes look on how the peasants are after DP. This was retired due to the peasants being too fucking lazy to do it. It is set to return once the peasants move into their new studio space.
  • Reenacting Rush - A very early segment on the show in which Ben and TJ would do an impression of an interview Rush Limbaugh had with his live viewers, with Ben taking the role as Rush. It was created largely because the peasants had no video in early episodes. It was retired early on in the show's life and is one of the lesser known segments. TJ has expressed some interest in bringing it back,[5] though it never came to fruition.
  • Q&A - The peasants take videos submitted by fans of the show and answer questions asked in them. The segment was retired due to lack of good content.
  • StrainsULove - A segment where the peasants review various strains of weed.
  • Stupid Ads - A segment in which the peasants watch advertisements that are so ridiculously stupid that it's funny. ԀP plays a game in which they attempt to guess the price of an object before the commercial ends. It is always $14.95, even if the ad says differently.
  • Shilling Segment - A regular segment of the show in which the peasants tell their peasants about the shit the need to know relating to DP, including announcements, their badass merchandise, and more. The majority of shilling takes place at the start of the show or during the music breaks. The peasants used to use a fanmade intro before the shilling, before it was eventually retired. Despite this, the segment is still technically around.
  • Storytime With Paul - A segment initially featured one day a week where Paul's Ego takes center stage as he retells stories about his adventures through life.
  • White Guilt - A segment in which the congenial liberal heathens at the Drunken Peasants express copious amounts of regret for making the terrible, terrible mistake of being born privileged white dudes. The segment often highlights race shills on YouTube trying to bait out the next race war, or possibly just other YouTubers attempting to cash in on the recent Donald Trump campaign.
  • Troll or Not a Troll - A segment in which an exceptionally out there video is played, and the hosts as well as any guests on the show vote to decide whether or not they believe it's a troll or actually retarded.
  • Vader - A sentient bong owned by Ben from which the peasants ritually smoke pan or legal tobacco out of during every podcast. It is known to briefly turn the show into the patent-pending Coughing Peasants Podcast.

The Drunken Peasants have become entangled in numerous long-standing online feuds with other YouTubers who have taken massive umbrage with ԀP's ethics and viewpoints, which is probably why TJ has issued a disclaimer at the start of every video to remind people that ԀP's primary intent is to abuse amuse. The ԀP fandom have taken these feuds and playfully fashioned them into sagas, comparable to the ones featured on Dragon BallZ. Here are a list of all the people ԀP has had sagas with:

  • Brett Keane: The feud between TJ and Brett existed before ԀP's very conception and has crossed over to the show. They used ԀP as a forum to debate on religion, morality and science. Aside from this, Brett Keane's videos are featured periodically on the show. The Brett Keane Saga can also bee seen as a precursor to the G Man Saga.
  • G Man: G Man was introduced to the peasants through Brett Keane and it was G Man's mad debating and rapping skills that made him stand out from amongst the Masters of Stupidity. This resulted in G Man taking on other notable figures on ԀP such as Thunderf00t, Jean-François Gariépy and Creationist Cat. The G Man Saga can be considered no longer in play as G Man as actually become a friends of the peasants, despite their differing views.
  • The Vigilant Christian: The Vigilant Christian Mario's conspiracy theory videos have been featured probably more than other YouTuber's on the Drunken Peasants and Mario himself has made videos attacking both TJ and ԀP. Ben has tried to get Mario on the show for a long time, but he kept cancelling at the last minute. The Vigilant Christian Mario finally came on the show in Episode 149.
  • Ryan Wiley: Ryan Wiley's videos regarding feminism and the atheist YouTube community have been featured a number of times on ԀP and landed him a guest appearance in Episode 34 to discuss things he said about Jaclyn Glenn and her position in the atheist community. The Ryan Wiley Saga ended in Episode 123 when Ryan made a video deciding to no longer involve himself in anymore online dramas. This was proceeding another video where he officially announced that he would no longer respond to the peasants.
  • Tim Black: This feud started when ԀP featured a video of Tim's criticizing TJ for telling children how to come out to their parents as atheists. After a number of responses from one to another, Tim Black made a guest appearance on the show and got along quite well with the peasants. Despite disagreements regarding the Chapel Hill shooting, Tim Black nevertheless remains a close ally with ԀP and even gave them a shout-out on live television. The man is a genuine champ.
  • Jenny McDermott: Jenny is one of ԀP's few long-running female enemies and their feud began when she threatened to DMCA them after the peasants misinterpreted her poorly-executed satire. Jenny's status as attention whore, drama whore and all-round retarded scumfuck have landed her several appearances on the podcast where she'll then complain about being harassed by ԀP fans, even though she was the one sticking her neck out just to get noticed.
  • Atheist Roo: Devon Tracy's war against ԀP started when they played and argued against a video of his criticizing Jaclyn Glenn's video on racial politics. This resulted in a vicious war on Twitter with Roo's fanboys swarming like locusts at anybody who insults their master and general. Atheist Roo is not willing to go on ԀP to have a discussion about this, but still insists on picking fights on Twitter with middle school-level insults and Photoshop.
  • Vegan Gains: This all started when the notorious vegan YouTuber attacked Trisha Paytas for her body-positivity videos and when he joked about murdering Mr. Repzion. This landed him a guest appearance in Episode 150 after a couple of back-and-forth, and Vegan Gain's relationship with the peasants is currently set to neutral.
