Episode #14!

Holy crap. Could it be? Another episode of Mysteries of the World? It could be, and it is.

In this episode, Erin recommends everyone buy a house because you can buy “so many things,” we talk about Baby Raul, worldwide viral superstardom, double drumsticking, Zach tells a story from childhood and, of course, we take it to the pie pod.

Another funny thing is that throughout this episode we continually refer to a 2 year absence, but while updating the site just now it is clear that it’s been almost 3 years. Whoops!
