Welcome to Punch Drunk TV, where your intrepid hosts Jack Conway and Aaron Pruner navigate the often tumultuous Peak TV landscape -- one drink at a time.

Jun 21, 2018

Another week, another set of bombshells to discuss. We do our best to talk about this Chris Hardwick scandal, but truth be told, we're both a bit too close to the drama to come at this story with unbiased clear eyes. Still, we do our best to not only explore both sides of the story, but also our own dealings with harassment allegations over the years and how they relate here.

Aaron's best friend is dealing with a lot in Hawaii, due to the lava flow which wiped out his entire property. Here's the GoFundMe he created to help save the animals displaced by these tragic events. Please donate and repost if you can. https://www.gofundme.com/save-the-animals-save-puna-hawaii
