Drunken Peasants

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.
For a full timeline of of the podcast, scroll over for the good parts here.

The Drunken Peasants (also known simply as ԀP) is a podcast focused on news, entertainment & politics airing from Bellevue, Washington. The hosts are Ben, TJ Kirk, Scotty Kirk, and Paul. The peasants like to pick apart current events in a fun and entertaining way, as well as bring on various guests, respond to other videos online, mock general stupidity going on in politics and popular culture, interact with their dedicated community, and set out to ԀP the internet from an altered perspective. The show has lasted for over three 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 140,000 subscribers and 40,000,000 views by 2017. ԀP is so popular that there is even a wiki based on it.

Communities

Main article: Fan Community

The Drunken Peasants, being a popular YouTube podcast with a dedicated fanbase, has a number of notable sub-communities run by fans of the show and sometimes co-operated by the peasants themselves. All of the communities listed here are officially recognized by the peasants or were at some point in the past. The peasants will occasionally bring up members of these communities during the podcast, being that they like to utilize fan-made material on their podcast where it fits appropriately. They are mysteriously all led by Drunken Fancy, who brought each of the official communities together under Drunken Peasants United.

  • Discord — A chat formed as a result of the YouTube chat being limited to during the show and the IRC Chat being run by assholes. There's also individual text and voice channels for gaming, mems, watching the show live, and more. This server is officially partnered with Discord and is also endorsed by the peasants, being listed in the description of each show since episode 326. The peasants also have a Patreon perk for smoke sessions with the fans in the Discord.
  • Wiki — A fan-developed pancyclopedia for all things relating to Drunken Peasants. The editors of the wiki have tirelessly worked from within our slave pens to deliver the information you need from an altered perspective. The wiki has been around for only about two years, though it has already compiled a large amount of trivia and inside jokes with a dedicated staff.
  • Fan Club — A Facebook-based community for fans of the show to gather. Fans often use the group to discusses episodes of the show and share various inside jokes or related mems. It was eventually made official, with Ben, TJ, Scotty, and Paul now being active admins of the group. The group is closed and posts are on admin-approval, meaning membership must be requested in order to join.
  • Subreddit — A community on Reddit for fans that not only watch the show, but often like to engage in further analysis of the podcast among peers. The lead moderator is Drunken Fancy, though Ben & TJ also have moderator status and comment from time to time. A notable amount of figures in the community have also made posts here. The subreddit is one the largest community hubs to share videos, art, and discussions of the show.
  • Steam — A group of fans based on Steam closely related to the Discord server, both of which are used together to host gaming events.
  • YouTube — This chat is a total hellhole widely recognized by the peasants as the degenerate backwash of their fanbase. The chat is often spammed by the fans for hours on end while the peasants do their show in hopes that precious Benpai or Cheejay will finally notice their shitposting, though their dreams are rarely fulfilled as the peasants only acknowledge the bullshit in the chat these days when it reaches it's peak.

Sagas

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 Ball Z or in WWE Wrestling.
