Facebook, just months after the #deletefacebook hysteria.  On today's show, JagTV joins us for an hour of hard-hitting questions like, "How many fingers?"</p> <p>JagTV has been a part of the PLA community for years, appearing on shows like <a href="http://www.madhouselive.com/">Madhouse Radio</a>, <a href="http://www.prankcallnation.com/shows/dwight/">Mop Riding With Dwight</a>, <a href="http://www.snowplowshow.com">The Snow Plow Show</a>, and <a href="https://www.youtube.com/CoMCPranks">Calls of Mass Confusion</a>.  He does a weekly-ish audio show called <a href="http://mixlr.com/jagtv/">The Purge</a>, and streams live video of himself in increasingly dangerous situations <a href="https://www.youtube.com/jagtvnetwork">on his YouTube channel</a>.  You can also find JagTV on <a href="https://twitter.com/Jagtelevision">Twitter</a> and <a href="https://www.facebook.com/jagteevee">Facebook</a>, where he is less likely to accidentally drink his own urine.</p> <ul> <li>MC Lars is the amazing nerdcore rapper who created the PLA All Day song that you heard in the intro and outro.  You've heard his music many times on my shows over the past decade.  Be sure to <a href="https://www.patreon.com/mclars">support his Patreon</a>, visit <a href="http://www.mclars.com">his website</a>, and <a href="http://www.mclars.com/tour/">see him in concert</a> the next time he's near you.</li> <li>Mob 7 says I don't mention Skunkworks often enough, but I guess he missed <a href="http://www.notla.com/archives/2018/01/episode-8-skunkworks-conspiracy/">the hour long Brad's Cactus Shack episode</a> dedicated solely to the ex-Phone Show listener who was digging tunnels under his house.</li> <li>If you enjoy trolling livestreamers on Facebook, <a

call-in show, where I do whatever it is I feel like doing, as long as I'm taking calls while doing it.  On today's show we chat with Jiad about <a href="https://www.facebook.com/callsofmassconfusion/">Calls of Mass Confusion</a> and other important things.</p> <p>Jiad has been a part of our community for years now.  Back in 2013 and 2014, <a href="http://www.prankcallnation.com/shows/jiad/">Jiad did a weekly show on Prank Call Nation called The Art of Phone Larking</a>.  In 2017 Jiad introduced us to prank call videos, where him and his film crew loitered around stores with hidden cameras and recorded reactions while others make weird phone calls to the stores.  That series is known as Season 1 of <a href="https://www.facebook.com/callsofmassconfusion/">Calls of Mass Confusion</a> and you can find <a href="https://www.youtube.com/CoMCPranks">all of the episodes on his YouTube page</a>.</p> <p>This year Jiad has brought us another original series for Calls of Mass Confusion where a bunch of us act as weird as possible during Skype video interviews.  Those episodes are currently being released twice a week on <a href="https://www.youtube.com/CoMCPranks">Jiad's YouTube channel</a> and should continue through most of the year.  Jiad is the founder of a prank call charity where him and others in the community raised money each year to buy a family a buttload of Christmas presents.  But most importantly, Jiad has kept the prank call community together for years by forcing us to participate in his various wacky projects.  Jiad has a <a href="https://www.patreon.com/CoMC/posts">Patreon page for Calls of Mass Confusion</a> that everyone should support so he can someday break even on all the entertainment he's given us.</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://phonelosers.wikia.com/wiki/Phone_Losers_of_America_Wikia">The giant list of words Brad can't pronounce</a></li> <li><a
