Feed Dump is a weekly series hosted on The Escapist created by the crew of Loading Ready Run. The show features Graham Stark and two guests poking fun at odd news stories from around the world.

Episodes are here.

Tropes used in Feed Dump include:
  • Catch Phrase: A few.
    • "Good times."
    • "There may be better sources for news, but they don't have this hat."
  • Couch Gag: Every episode opens with a variation of "And now, some (word rhyming with 'news')", often with an accompanying graphic.
  • Halloween Episode: Two in a row - "Dinosaurs" and "Powerless and Nude".
  • It Makes Sense in Context: Pretty much all of the titles.
  • Jingle: Several segments, including "Paul and Matt have to figure out what Graham is talking about", "Why in the hell?", and "Jer and Alex assess the playability of some bullshit".
  • Nice Hat: Graham ends every episode by placing a Nice Hat on his head as he proclaims that other news sources don't have a hat like it. Most episodes contain additional jokes featuring hats.
    • An entire investment market has arisen around predicting the number of hats in the next episode.
  • "No. Just... No" Reaction

Graham: *reads a news story as a song* It's song time!
Kathleen: *excited* Can I sing a song?
Alex: NO!
Kathleen: *pouts*
