ISO 402: Playboys And Fake Communists

This week, we discuss Carlos the Jackal before he was the jackal. He decided that one day he was going to hold up an OPEC meeting and take hostages, as you do. We discuss a confusing statement about being a communist and capitalist at the same time.

ISO 401: Only Half-Evil Spock

We kick off season four with...(cue fanfare and disappointment)...A WEATHER EPISODE! Oh. We learn that tidal waves are predatory in nature and will hunt down unsuspecting people at the beach. There is a behind-the-scenes look at how a tidal wave monitoring station works. Also...idiots waiting for the wave.

ISO 324: How Did You Get So Funky?

Welcome to the final episode of the season...finally! This week we discuss King Tut (again, sort of) and his reign as Pharaoh, but more importantly, the dig for his tomb. We also discuss (again) the dynamic duo of Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon (OK, not so dynamic).

ISO 323: Wax On, Wax Off In The Holy Land

Were the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah actual, literal, real places? Probably not. Did an extra-biblical text found at an archaeological dig in Ebla confirm the stories of the bible? No. Is it really disturbing hear Leonard Nimoy talk about "the sensual"? YES.

ISO 322: 6th or 7th Dimensional Tinfoil

This week, we have a special guest, Dave Brodbeck, to help us with this episode. Because we would probably need to go to school for four years to figure out what is wrong and what is outdated. There is, however, plenty of woo at the end of this one.

This week, we go on a stakeout...FOR GHOSTS! Join Sylvia Brown and Nocerino as they make lots of money while helping a hotel/restaurant make more money by saying that they can't get rid of the ghost. There is plenty of snark in this episode from all of us.
