Case File #8972 - Scientology (Amy Raugust)

Eric and Ben welcome back returning champion Amy Raugust. Tonight on the show we dissect Scientology. What exactly is it and why is it so appealing? Then we discover Lord Xenu's galactic battles as well as L. Ron Hubbard's magick sex conquests! We find a lot of common ground with the Church's message and think anything said in here should be taken with a grain salt. Right? This is just a harmless podcast. I mean, don't kill me, okay? If I die, they did it. Plus the show welcomes a new monologue writer, Mort Gershwin! We also totally did an episode on The Holy Bible already, so this isn't singling anything out. Okay?

Case File #6739 - SantaCon (Kyle Levenick)

Eric and Ben end the year with a holiday show full of cheers and jeers... it's SantaCon! Our special guest Kyle Levenick stops by to run through this drunken bar crawl. Or is it actually a fast spreading virus that occurs every year around Christmas? Who is involved in this party driven conspiracy? It might be ripping off charities and destroying the minds of children it encounters. Could this be a fifth column for the Illuminati, Spectre, or is it apart of the dreaded War on Christmas? How is the elf on a shelf wrapped up in this? Listen and learn. Happy Holidays!

Case File #9104 - Slender Man (Rich McHale)

Eric gets Slendersick (aka “the sickness”). Ben gets creepy and they both welcome Rich McHale to the program to discuss Slender Man also known as Slenderman. What are the origins of this mysterious Internet figure and his creepypastas? Was it old German folklore regarding Der Ritter, Der Grossman, or was this all Victor Surge's doing? Something Awful, indeed, but not this episode despite “the sickness.” Including posts from Reddit and other terrifying tales. Also how would Christopher Walken pronounce Slender Man? We think it'd go a little something like this...

Case File #1610 - William Shakespeare

Sir Patrick Stewart (Stephen Sajdak) joins Eric and Ben to discuss the theatre, his life experience, as well as William Shakespeare. Was the glover's son from Stratford a real person? If he didn't write the most immortal works in all of literature then who did? Perhaps, the 17th Earl of Oxford, Sir Francis Bacon, Christopher Marlowe, or perhaps even William Stanley the 6th Earl of Derby. Warning: This episode features some salty sailor talk but what else would you expect from a man who served in the Navy? I mean, Star Trek's Starfleet is pretty much the Navy, right?

Case File #8405 - Project Serpo

On this episode Amanda Smith (The Lizanda Show) stops by to uncover Project Serpo. It's an alleged exchange program between the U.S. Government and extraterrestrials from Serpo, a planet in the Zeti Reticuli star system. They were the ones who landed at Roswell. The lone survivor? EBE (or Abe) who sells his people out. But what happened to the humans in the exchange program? Ronald Reagan knew. Why don't we? Plus: A listener sends in evidence of UFOs over America.

Case File #2362 - Ouija Boards

Eric and Ben welcome Ramsey Ess (Snap Impression, Ramsey Has a Time Machine) to the program to discuss the terrifying dark arts surrounding ouija boards. We explore the origins of this deadly "game" and examine a lot of consequences that arise from tampering with the ever after. Can you summon spirits that aren't even ghosts? Can the spirits of the dead communicate with us / plot to take over our government via possession? So many questions... answered! Hey, isn't this a movie now too?
