Death by Rooster and Observing Lent While Hating Everybody

Ethan Nicolle is joined by Doug TenNapel in Exile and Wes Halula on this Bee Weekly to talk about Texas ditching mask mandates and what it’s like to celebrate Lent while hating everybody. Ethan and Wes also discuss totally substantiated rumors of more Star Wars stars getting cancelled, irony striking at cockfights, and Satanic cats trying to crash passenger airplanes.

This episode of The Babylon Bee Podcast is brought to you by The Word of the Lord Endures, a fifteen minute, verse-by-verse bible study with Pastor Will Weedon.


Kyle is gone for this week, but the Bee turned 5 years old, we have 100,000 subscribers on YouTube now, and comedy pitched to the algorithm gets rejected.

Jason Tate writes, “mention my new podcast Caffeinated Theology on a podcast, and I’ll upgrade my subscription. (Are y’all still doing that? Lol)” 

Michael Poush writes, “ I was on the fence about subscribing, and then I heard you guys talk about how you’d do anything to get people to subscribe. On further review, I never did come up with anything I wanted; no websites to plug or anything. Can I get a voucher for one free shoutout at a later date? Thanks!
