S03 E10 - Pets 2

EThere’s nothing a pet owner wouldn’t do for their furry children. Tiny clothes for frogs. The royal, dog-wedding of Roshanara and Bobby. The Indian Maharaja and his 800 pooches. And the story of two naked men, a pig, a gun, and George Clooney. So, cuddle up on the couch with your favorite four-legged friend and let your spouse sit on the floor.

S03 E09 - Tabletop

EBoard games are anything but boring. In 1978, the Philippines held the “weirdest” World Chess Championship in history – it involved Soviet spying, psychic hypnotists, violent cultists, yogurt paranoia, and a dangerously squeaky chair. Plus, all the times family game night ended in murder! Go to Jail. Do not pass Go. Do not collect 200 rubles. This week’s topic: “Tabletop” #MurderInTheLongGame

S03 E08 - Prostitution

EGet in, loser. We’re going on a hoe trip. First, we’ll stop by Florida to visit an old Twitter favorite about two strippers and their wild weekend full of sex and danger. Then, we end up in Washington, D.C. with two questions as old as the oldest profession: Where did the word “hooker” come from? And… Who shot Alexander Hamilton in that famous duel? Wha-? The radio’s busted so we got Noosh to sing songs from his high school rock band. Oh boy… This week’s topic: “Prostitution” #A7Ou

S03 E07 - Cults

ECults are like exes - the amount of crazy you put up with depends on how good the sex is. A French pop star with a man bun. Hookers for Jesus. Sex robots. The Ghost of Abraham Lincoln. Cloning. The hottest cereal mascots. And an alien named Yahweh. You’ve come this far. Why leave now? One of us. One of us. One of us. This week’s topic: “Cults” #TonyIsAGreatLover

S03 E06 - Emperors

EWhat makes a king? Is it the ideals of justice and law he upholds? Is it his refusal to follow no law but his own? Or, is it his will to be greedier, laugh louder, and rage harder than any other? One was a failed rice merchant, who was raised up by his people to become the first Emperor of America. The other was a man fated to possess all of China, but who wanted nothing more than to be a shopkeeper. Who was the truer king? For a king must flame the aspirations of his people to live as he does! Rejoice, young man. Your wish, will at last, come true. This week’s topic: “Emperors” #LeopaaardHooouse!

EOne photo can lead to a legend, while another can lead to a revolution – it just depends on who is holding the camera. The monkey selfie that led to a massive legal battle. The mysterious images of a wanderer called the Leatherman. And nudes. We got a lot of nudes in this one. For some people, a picture is worth a thousand words and all of them are “dick”. Believe it!

S03 E04 - Heists

EThey’ll steal your heart just as quickly as they’ll steal your purse. Be on the lookout for these two lovable ne’er-do-wells! The Pink Panthers, who are the most successful group of diamond thieves in the history of the world. And Colonel Blood, who stole not only the crown jewels of England, but the heart of its… king? Say what? We got on this podcast for different reasons. But, no more running, listeners. We aim to misbehave! This week’s topic: “Heists” #PinkFurryHandcuffs

ELong ago, men had to be as hard as the times they lived in. We look back at two such men. One named Whitehead who had 99 problems and all of them were bears. And the other named Whiteside who stole not only the crown jewels of Romania, but the heart of its queen. Better keep the sharks and bears inside where it’s safe. What time is it? It’s podcast time!

EFrom on high, the stars watch our brief stories unfold. A man without a nose. Two Italian radio operators. A psychic court jester. An alcoholic moose. And guy named Manderup Parsberg. Mankind travels along a road that leads not forward, but upward. In Soviet Russia, smart dogs go to space and unlucky cosmonauts go to China.
