The gang is all here! We're back from vacation! This week we dive into the delicious, although sexually repressed, history of the Graham Cracker and Sylvester Graham's crusade against bad bread, jerking off, and infrequent dumps. It's a blast and you'll never look at s'mores the same way again.

We're back this week with the final installment in our series on Timothy McVeigh. Join us as Mando takes Paige and Andrea through the last leg of Tim's trip toward radicalization.

Sorry for the delay, but we're finally back this week with one heck of a story. Join us as Mando takes Paige and Andrea through Timothy McVeigh's time in the Army, his first two killings, and the start of his radicalization. We all know where this is headed, but did you know about the part where he LITERALLY let Jesus take the wheel? Yeah. Didn't think so.

We’re back this week with the first installment in our series on Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City Bombing. The story behind the 1995 attack is almost common knowledge now.

Join us as Mando tells Paige and Andrea all about the goofy childhood that helped push him into becoming the deadliest domestic terrorist in modern American history.

We're back this week to talk about a group that's been on everyone's mind lately. Join us as Mando tells Paige and Andrea about Antifascism, Antifa for short. You'll learn all about the group's origins, why they started, and why it's so troubling to have them labelled as a "terrorist organization". The metaphors are strong with this episode.

We're back with the final installment in our series on The Branch Davidians, David Koresh, and Waco. Join us this week as Paige takes Mando and Andrea through the Seige at Waco and how this tragedy could've been prevented by both sides multiple different times. This one is most definitely rough, and weirdly relevant, but we promise that it's worth the listen. Also, we rollin' with Oprah now. So, we're pretty much demi-Gods.

We're back with another installment in our series on The Branch Davidians and David Koresh! Join us this week as Paige takes Mando and Andrea through life inside the compound. Why were tensions so high? What did they do for money? What on earth is a "Berry Pouch"?! Tune in to find out!

We're celebrating 1,000,000 downloads by kicking off a series that's been a long time comin'. With all the craziness surrounding the Branch Davidian's compound and violent end, it's important that we take a look at why the Feds were all shaken up. Just 9 months before everyone in America would know the town of Waco, TX, another standoff was underway. Join us as Paige takes Mando and Andrea through the Weaver Family's story and we learn why everyone was so on edge.

We're back this week with a breather episode before we launch into one heck of a series. But before everything goes nuts next week we figured we'd sit down and talk about the documentary series Tiger King. Tune in to hear about our theories, roasts, and all about Mando's former arch-enemy. 

We're back with the final installment in our series on the late scientist/cult leader Timothy Leary. How did the Harvard Psilocybin Project transform into an international free love cult?

We're back this week telling you to "turn on, tune in, and drop out". Join us as Armando takes Paige and Andrea through one of the most interesting lives ever lived. Half Manson and half baked, Timothy Leary's story is one hell of a trip. So put on your coolest shades and your "uncle-iest" denim jacket. We're diving deep, baybee.

We're back this mid-week with a minisode on a cult that is absolutely INSANE. Join us as Paige takes Mando and Andrea through the lives of a man who trapped his followers deep underground for years. Also, we all might be able to relate to being in a bunker these days. Crazy times.

We're back this week with an episode on a very eccentric, and equally evil, guru by the name of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh. Join us as Paige takes Mando and Andrea through the story of the guru's group, Dera Sacha Sauda, and his illustrious career as a movie star, artist, musician, and car technician. Yep. We'll get into it.

About a week ago we recorded this Coronavirus Madness-style bonus episode for y'all. We had no clue how bad it was going to be. But, the jokes still work, baybee. We hope this brightens up your Friday a bit. We're joined by Kristal Adams, host of the podcast Black Card Rehab, to talk about the disease, immune systems, and weird college experiences.

We were lucky enough to have Erin, Paige's sister, in the studio a few days ago and recorded this lil bonus episode for y'all to help you get through the Friday commute! Kick off your weekend by hearing about one of the worst first dates in history, the pros and cons of grillz, and for some questions from listeners. All in all a real good time.

We're back with another episode on gangs! Except for this time, the gang is actually closer to a cult than you might've thought. With its own religion, sacred text, and demi-gods the Latin Kings are part "Crips and Bloods" and part "Jonestown". Join us as Mando tells Paige and Andrea about how Chicago's history birthed the gang and what the group's original purpose was.

Join us as Mando tells Paige and Andrea about how Adam Weishaupt turned a rag-tag group of college boys into one of the most feared and infamous groups in history. Stay tuned at the end to hear the gang open up a special package, too! Spoiler: It's either proof that aliens are real or some really amazing art from some listeners. Maybe both.

We're back with the final installment of our series on witchcraft and witches in the western world. Over the last two weeks we've learned about the history of magic, the turn from respect of it to fear of it, and some very slippery chairs. But join us this week as Mando takes Paige and Andrea through arguably the most famous instance of magical persecution: The Salem Witch Trials! This one truly has it all: a weed fueled history lesson, tons of goofy jokes, and an accidental endorsement of the Klan.
