If you’ve never experienced the power and love of Chuck Tingle, the “world’s greatest author” by many accounts (including his own), then your life is about to be changed.

This week on 2 Girls 1 Podcast, Alli and Jen (actors who perform weird internet stuff on stage) have a candid conversation with erotic author and online sensation Chuck Tingle.

Tingle shares his inspiration for such hits as Pounded In the Butt by My Own Butt and Space Raptor Butt Invasion.

We also discuss the idiocy of the so-called alt-right and how the internet transformed his passion for “bud-on-bud kissing” into a sprawling Tingleverse: Hugo Award-nominated science fiction, a celebrity-powered podcast, and perhaps one day, a feature film.

Listen to the show:

Is Dr. Tingle a real person? Is he the pseudonym of a brilliant performance art character? Is he the Andy Kaufman of 21st century gay erotic fiction?

Only one thing is certain: Even J.K. Rowling has been touched by the power of the pound.

The book’s real, the review’s real and I’ve finally found something to laugh about in this whole terrible mess. pic.twitter.com/5r8yF9Fa2l
