Squidbillies has often been talked about on the podcast, yet never deep-diveified... UNTIL NOW! What makes this very first episode of Squidbillies special is that Squidbillies almost never happened at all. Conceived as just a funny title and not much else, Adult Swim spent over a year trying to get Squids to work... until they nearly gave up on the idea. Dave Willis and Jim Fortier gave it one last go, eventually spawning one of Adult Swim's longest running shows. We get all into this rocky start (and near abandonment), relive some of Jay Edward's and Dave Willis's thoughts on the early days, and comb over Squidbillies S01E01 like we would our orange mullets.
