Say no to drugs (unless you are ranking them).

After a well deserved break in the PodCavern, we are back to full power to do what we do best on this show – ranking!

Drugs can be a hard thing to talk about as the word often has some mixed connotations to it. That’s why we won’t pretend we are experts on the real thing and will rank drugs based on things we DO know – FICTION! So this week join Tuong and The Sonar Network/That’s How I Remember It’s Michael Mongiardi, John Richardson, and Raul Delgado as they get high on life and inject a Top 5 Fictional Drugs list into your veins/ears.

Ground Rules

  •  As like all of our “Fiction” episodes, we will be pulling from all fiction including movies, tv, books, video games, etc.
  • A lot of things can be considered drugs. This is more or less the definition we’ll be going off of-  “a medicine or other substance which has a physiological effect when ingested or otherwise introduced into the body.”
  • We will take pop culture popularity into account
  • We are also going to be ranking based on how “interesting” we find the drug
  • If the drug nominated is a fictionalized version of a real drug it counts still. However, we are ranking the fictionalized version of it (ie fictional weed).
