Asterios produces more podcasts than I do, including <a href="https://www.asteriospodcasts.com/e/science-friction-023-catfish-fan-fiction/">Science Friction</a>, <a href="https://www.asteriospodcasts.com/e/asterios-kills-a-kid-4-positivity-fake-it-till-you-make-it/">Asterios Kills A Kid</a>, <a href="https://www.asteriospodcasts.com/e/porg-chatter-6-population-control/">Porg Chatter</a>, <a href="https://www.asteriospodcasts.com/e/asterios-talks-to-strangers-izzy-nobre/">Asterios Talks To Strangers</a>, <a href="https://www.asteriospodcasts.com/e/waifu-wars-005-sirancha-strikes-back/">Waifu Wars</a>, and so many others that I can't remember the names of them all. Asterios is an <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Toys-Cheap-Magic-Will-Child-ebook/dp/B01LYNYRMC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1531500832&amp;sr=8-1&amp;keywords=asterios+kokkinos">author</a>, a stand-up comedian, and an all-around awesome person who seems to really love the things that PLA does.</p> <p>About a year ago a once-comedian named Maddox <a href="https://medium.com/@asterios/the-lolsuit-saga-how-maddox-sued-me-for-20-million-dollars-for-making-fun-of-him-cbf107b94691">sued Asterios for $20,000,000</a> for being funnier than him. Maddox also sued Dick from <a href="https://thedickshow.com/">The Dick Show</a>, Asterios' employer, Patreon, and a few other people. All because Maddox was butthurt over <a href="https://cyberdemon.bandcamp.com/album/cuckmas-carols-bald-headed-lies">some parody songs</a>. As hilarious as this was for all of us, this lawsuit cost Asterios over $25,000 of legal debt and he lost his job because of it. <a href="https://www.thedickshowwiki.com/wiki/index.php/Lolsuit">Everyone else involved also had to pay massive legal costs to defend Maddox</a>. Imagine getting sued for nothing and racking up massive debt just to defend yourself.
