How old is Lorde? You know, the shockingly young pop-music sensation who won a Grammy as a teen and took the world by storm with her clever lyrics and stadium rock vocals? Like 22? WRONG. Stevie Nelson is convinced that Lorde is actually a 40-year-old masquerading as a teen for the publicity. Stevie (who’s also a genius actor/comedian/artist) has a lot of evidence to support Lorde being a big fake faker, and she shares it on this episode. Along with a story about her best friend that will really touch your heart. It’s a blessing of an ep!

What connects shark attacks in Egypt, lizards in Iran, and an endangered vulture in Saudi Arabia? Why, nothing but the fact that they’re all trained spies sent by Mossad to snoop on Israel’s enemies!!! This wild and wooly theory comes to us courtesy of the insanely funny Zach Reino, and it’s a whopper. There have been many incidences of weird camera wearing animals around Israel, and we get into all the possibilities of what might be going on. Discussion includes but is not limited to - robot dolphins, squid stabbings, whether lions eat other out, whether Mossad is scary or cool, and of course Birthright. It’s such a nice time!
This week’s episode is a very special one. The guest may be incarcerated, but his soul and his intellect are free as a bird. Jesse Ray Beaumont is an amateur horologist and full-time small-town scapegoat who is currently serving a life sentence for a crime he may not have committed. He’s the subject of the popular podcast M-Towne. And he’s very convinced that soy gives men big saggy tatas. It’s a conspiracy that’s near and dear to his heart because of his own boyhood bosoms, and we get into his soy bean farming past, the details of his current and former murder trials, and of course our own favorite nicknames for the male anatomy. Please enjoy this heartfelt interview with a sensitive southern genius.

Michael and Patrick are two delightful tv writers on the show Trial and Error. Y2K is the fun and catchy nickname for the epidemic of fear around the year 2000. This episode is where it all goes down. See, programmers in the early days of computers decided to list dates with two digits, which made 1900 the same as 2000, which made everyone freak out and think that all computers would go bust at midnight on New Years Eve. That didn’t happen. BUUUUUUT that anti-climactic moment just might be the reason that our world currently looks the way it does. See Mike and Patrick think Y2K influenced our culture in some creepy secret ways, and you just might agree.
Hey, how come they never found any bodies in the pyramids in Egypt? Like, if they were tombs where are all the bodies and decorations and stuff? If this question bothers you, then you have a lot in common with Suzi Barrett. The truly delightful writer/actor/comedian stopped by to drop some knowledge about what was really going on in those big geometric sons of guns. To whit, free unlimited electricity! Suzi has some shocking (heheh) details in support of the idea that the pyramids in Giza were hydroelectric power plants used by the ancient Egyptians to build their empire. How fun! Also Suzi is genuinely one of the funniest people we’ve ever met, don’t miss this ep.
