This rift in their visions' jeopardizes not only their show, but also their friendship. While their radio show increases in popularity, the duo have to answer to an audience that does not always like what have to say. As Dennis and Jeff continue to not necessarily see eye to eye about the direction that their careers should take, they find that success is often not what they had imagined.
