You thought overwrought endeavours were limited to videogames?  Where do you go now... that you've written Sweet Child O' Mine and November Rain?  Axel Rose, Buckethead, midnight pyrotechnics, and chicken coop pronography.

Theme song by Blank Sun: https://blanksun.bandcamp.com

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, or at least maybe finish a marathon.  Things could have gone a whole lot better for the rag-tag band of competitors at the St. Louis Olympics.  Dusty roads, ancient wars, rotten apples, and rat poison...

Theme song by Blank Sun: https://blanksun.bandcamp.com

Our special guest Try-All Andy returns for the story of the trials and tribulations that went into producing a sequel that was over a decade in the making.  Aliens, misogyny, pop-culture references, and a world record... hail to the king?

Very special thanks to Craig Baird of Canadian History Ehx for helping with the research for this episode.

Theme song by Blank Sun: https://blanksun.bandcamp.com

As harsh a place as space can be, there have been surprisingly few deaths in space.  Not to worry!  Leigh found some for us.  Soviet cosmonauts, Soyuz 11, and a pesky valve...

Theme song by Blank Sun: https://blanksun.bandcamp.com

Craig from Canadian History Ehx returns to once again rob us of sleep.  What's the most damage mother nature could possibly do in one hour?  Edmonton, Alberta found out in 1987.  Tornadoes, the Fujita scale, Canadian devastation, and... you better believe it... a trailer park.

Theme song by Blank Sun: https://blanksun.bandcamp.com

Not all disasters happen on a global scale.  Leigh tells the story of his experience on jury duty, with its highest highs and lowest lows.  Criminal fraud, heated debates, comped meals... and comped... meals...

Theme song by Blank Sun: https://blanksun.bandcamp.com

Ever wanted some of your favorite songs ruined by the story of the man behind them?  Leigh makes it real hard to separate the man from the art.  The Ronettes, John Lennon, George Harrison, hit records, guns, and death.

Theme song by Blank Sun: https://blanksun.bandcamp.com

Peter tells the harrowing tale of that time a group of ships got stuck in the Suez Canal... and it's probably not the time you're thinking of.  Salty sailors, makeshift regattas, non-sanctioned Olympic games, and alcohol... so much alcohol.

Theme song by Blank Sun: https://blanksun.bandcamp.com

Been a while since you've felt crowded?  Nuclear Norm tells the story of a dystopian cyberpunk fever dream that existed in the heart of Hong Kong.  Opium wars, building code violations, plane-scrapers, and Bloodsport.

Theme song by Blank Sun: https://blanksun.bandcamp.com

What better way to unwind after a long day of wandering through a mall than paying to get lost in a labyrinth?  Misguided endeavors, maze-like working conditions, a ghost in the machine, and a fire...
