Attend the tale of this wienie clod, Whose legs were short and proclivities odd. He snipped the tresses of sleeping women, Who never thereafter were stylish again. He trod a path that none should trod, This wienie clod, The Phantom Barber of Creep…Street.
A baseball game. A ballpark hotdog. Needlessly uprooting a native population in the name of Manifest Destiny. America. This week, the guys excavate the seedy history of the Battle of Chavez Ravine and how Dodger Stadium came to be located where it is. Caution: you may want a refund on those season tickets after you hear this one.
Pardon our dust! Due to technical issues, the guys won’t be blessing your ears with a full episode this week. Please enjoy this Bright Spot in its place, and have a wonderful week!

This week, the guys manifest a destiny wherein they learn about the hidden lives […]
Hey, sweetie. We’ve had a good run, but it’s not working out. It’s not you, it’s us. We want nothing but for you to be happy, so we have to let you be free. Free to live your life. Free to listen to other podcasts. Kidding! We’ll never leave you, though this week the guys are looking into the scary, […]
The clinical term for the fear of clowns is coulrophobia, but the rest of us know it as common sense. This week, the guys explore the (numerous!) clown panics of American history, often as a result of mass cultural anxiety.

Water, water everywhere, and what a spot to sink! This week, the guys probe the murky depths of The Michigan Triangle, a mysterious section of Lake Michigan which seems to swallow ships and planes much like its better-known cousin near Bermuda.
